  1. “He did get caught stealing 10 times this year, so that is something to watch out for.”

    Dude, 29/39 for SB attempts is 74%….which is pretty typical for base stealers… (Not to mention he was over 80% last year, which could mean this year’s rate is just noise from a small sample.)

  2. Yeah, I noted it, and moved right along. My very next sentence was “Overall that is a minor concern to fantasy owners, but it is something to take note of.” Would you rather I address 10 CS in Triple-A this year or just gloss over that?

    I agree that it’s probably nothing too significant, and tried to say as much.

  3. Volatile Max Scherzer vs. Mike Trout, Albert Pujols, Mark Trumbo & Co., who just hung 18 hits and 13 runs on the Tigers? No thanks.

  4. ESPN Leagues, where 99% of owners and leagues are inactive by June.

  5. Scherzer’s BB’s are in line with his career norm and his peripherals indicate that his K rate should maintain.

    Sure, it’s a risk against that lineup, but I think Scherzer will be fine.

    /cue Scherzer going 3.2 IP with 6 ER now…

  6. Ha, that seems to the case all too often.

    I’m in one public league there that has had all of two trades. Both of which I instigated.

  7. I have Ben Revere but Rajai Davis is available. I don’t use Revere everyday, just when I feel like he has a good chance of getting on base and stealing some bags. Would you drop Revere for Rajai?

  8. I would, but I’ve always been high on Rajai and probably a little ow on Revere. The Blue Jays have scored the 3rd most runs in baseball, the Twins are middle of the pack. If both players hit in similar positions in the lineup, I’m going to go with Davis.

  9. I beg to differ in the case of Revere v. Davis. Revere is more of a singles hitter, in comparison, but he strikes out much much less than Davis does. Davis is also much streakier, which can bode well when he’s hot, but will be more of a liability day-to-day.

  10. Gose’s SB and CS in the Minors
    08/3/1/A (Only 11 games, 41 PA)

    Don’t know if that blip in 2010 portends much. I just remember that year and wanted to see how he progressed from there. Thought I’d pass it on.

  11. To that point, I believe he’s riding the pine right now.

  12. Any advice on Brandon Belt? I really struggle with judging young talent and Bochy’s somewhat erratic plug and play roster tweaking just complicates things. Thanks.

  13. I wish I could give some advice on Belt. To Bochy, that is.

    Sometimes you just have to shake your head.

  14. In a keeper league is there any reason to think he’s not the full time 1B next year though?

    Also, rest of season Maybin or Davis? A crucial waiver pickup for tomorrow morning depends on it

    Comment by Ashman — July 19, 2012 @ 8:52 pm

  15. I hope to the BABIP gods that there isn’t any reason to dump him in a keeper league.

    As for your second question, I’ll take Maybin. Tougher home park, but I like his talent level and upside more.
