  1. So I've noticed that the defensive shift is happening a lot more than it used to. I remember the days when the only infield shift I'd see was when Mo Vaughn was at the plate. It seems to becoming a more popular trend over the last couple of seasons, especially this year. The Jays use it frequently, Brett Lawrie spends a fair bit of time in shallow right.

  3. we get it, youd let trout give you a facial any day of the week.
     
  4. Ive been waiting for years for Teixeira to lay down a bunt or something.

    Mine as well shift if the hitters wont make any adjustments.
     
  5. Yankees 6 for their last 60 with RISP... yikes
  6. agree 100% with OP regarding the shifts. boggles my mind that more guys don't lay down bunts to keep teams honest.

    Getting super annoying considering I have Jeter, Cano, A-Rod, Swisher and Tex in 1 league and all but Cano in another.
  11. Garza looked like shit today.
  12. Nats baby! Suck on that Phillies
     
  13. HOLY FUCKING ZOOM POKER AD.

  14. Reds win and are tied for 1st. The Cards are tied 1-1 in the 7th.

    Crazy stat. This year Ryan Hanigan makes contact on 90% of the pitches he swings at and 98% of the pitches he swings at in the strike zone. To compare, Votto makes contact on 78% of the pitches he swings at.

    Maybe if you weren't such a Yankees homer you would be better at fantasy baseball, and realize that Cano sucks defensively. Yes, he's in the bottom 5 in the league. He's better defensively than Uggla tho!

  16. Raise the jolly roger (the radio call after a Pirates victory)!!! Pretty satisfying win against the Mets tonight, considering we were down 4-0 early, and our offense is terrible on a historic scale, and I hate Waco.

    i think he'd heal faster if he grew some goddam facial hair.
  22. that 6-60 stat was before a night full of fail with RISP... it would be funnier to me if the Mets didn't lose another heartbreaker =/

    I picked up Paulino tho and started him even with the tough matchup, so loving that part of it.
  23. yanks are really struggling right now.

    pitching hitting you name it.

    lol @ cano being bottom 5 at fielding. please
  24. Yu gettin served pretty hard somehow. How do you have 6 walks in the 4th against the Mariners offense. ouch

    Because he looks good playing the position? He just doesn't have very good lateral movement.
