So...this week I played the guy that irrationally loads up on closers.
My opponent this week had 5 closers (in H2H). As such, in dedicating 5 roster slots to one category...he won saves.
On the other hand, his dedication to one pitching category limited his ability to have useful bats and extra bats. Thus, he had no bench and the players he did have did not produce. Thus, I won 4 out of 5 hitting categories (unless Cuddyer steals a base or two tonight) losing only SB by 1.
Similarly, his dedication to closers limited his ability to garner enough strikeouts or wins. Additionally, with the limited number of innings pitched by his pitchers (not enough SP) then his ERA and WHIP were adversely affected by David Price being blown up early in the week. I was victorious in K and ERA. We tied in Ws. He won WHIP by 0.01 (because I streamed two pitchers Sunday trying to take over wins and they got blown up...thanks Santiago and Elias).
The week will end 6-3-1 unless I steal a base or two tonight (he has no more hitters) or Andrew Miller gives up a hit or a walk or scavenges a win (he has one pitcher left). Thus, the week was a freckle of a hair from being 9-1 with his only victory being saves.
Congratulations...you have poor roster management skills...5 closers...LMAO!.

I wish you were in my league.
Rollins hasn't been a thing of beauty for four years...but he produces.
You will have an ugly BA but he summons his "old man strength" to pound out HR and 2B and he still has the speed and guile to be a top of the lineup bat with 20+ SB.
Unless there is another leadoff or #2 hitter available in your league(s)...Rollins is the best you will find.
Heck...it isn't pretty watching Ian Desmond or Hunter Pence...but they put up numbers.

You do not live in reality, Ricky Rescue.
You believe there is some discernible difference between Bryant and Baez. Your business degree would teach you to evaluate such items and contact profile, foot speed, and other variables beyond standard metrics. This continues to be your undoing. This also proves why you have no degree.
Sucks to be you, Skippy.

Of course you need to defend your academic accomplishments (or lack thereof).
Unfortunately, you cannot defend them as your lack of business acumen shows in every post. Your lack of proper diction, phraseology, and lack of command of basic mathematics and business principals shows in your every post.
Again, Ricky Rescue, you are the epitome of failure.

Did you get your feelings hurt? Oh...that isyou curled up in the fetal position and sucking your thumb in the corner.

Sweetness...I did not say that RBI are rare.
I said that the act of driving in a run via a sacrifice fly is rare.
Try to keep up, Skippy.

Perhaps Scott would like to start a "Brandon Guyer Watch" thread since he has already done two things today that Kristina Bryant hasn't done:
1) Hit a MLB homerun
2) Had a 4 RBI day
Bottom 1st: Tampa Bay
Brandon Guyer homered (395 ft.) to deep left center
TOR 0 - TB 1
Logan Forsythe doubled to right, Evan Longoria scored
TOR 0 - TB 2
Bottom 4th: Tampa Bay
Brandon Guyer hit sacrifice fly to left, Tim Beckham scored
TOR 0 - TB 3
Bottom 6th: Tampa Bay
Brandon Guyer singled to left center, Tim Beckham and Kevin Kiermaier scored
TOR 0 - TB 5

Kristina Bryant IS Javier Baez in drag.
What's wrong? You don't want Kristina Bryant updates in the thread you designated for him? Isn't that the reason for which this thread was made?
To watch Bryant and catalog his progress (as he morphs into Javier Baez...or Pat Burrell)?
- Dick Strong Dick Strong Apr 26, 2015 2:55 PM Flag
Yes...yes...it is relevant.
A sacrifice fly is rare. Very rare in MLB.
I am updating you on Steve Pearce.
Why? Because it is just as anal as created a thread for the Kristina Bryant watch.
I will catalog Pearce's successes and Bryant's failures.
