    Someone please help me! I play in a H2H, non keeper league. Is it time to drop Bryce Harper or should I be more patient and hold on to him? He has been terrible and its been hard to watch. Part of me feels like he will be more of a JD Drew type of player opposed to a super star anyways. I can pick up Drew Stubbs or Lorenzo Cain. What do you think?

    You should repeat the player’s names more when you’re talking about him, instead of “he” or “this is a guy…” Sometimes I skip around or space out and it takes way too long to figure out who you’re talking about. Other than that its great!

    Would love some Eno analysis of Hector Santiago. For his career he has a K-BB% of around 11.3% and a SwStr% of around 8.1%. The last 30 days it has been 19.1% and 10.4%, respectively. I can’t figure out on the site how to look at pitch types for the last 30 days to understand what has changed. Is this noise or is something going on here that an owner could take advantage of.

    Jean Segura? I just don’t think he is even rosterable anymore. Please help me confirm what I already know.

    I want to say Darwin Barney was either a bio or chem major in college. I remember him talking about biochem in an interview on MLBN. It would suprise me if he isn’t a stat head to some extent.

    I would love to see you guys break down Eric Hosmer and see if he is due for a second half rebound or if I should just move on and try to make a go of it with guys like Lucas Duda or Steve Pearce or Kung Fu Panda. Hosmer seems to be hitting a bit better lately, is this a sign of a rebound or should I sell him with the hope an owner is feeling optimistic about his second half.
