4/8 Cheering, Venting & Resurrection

Postby bigh0rt » Sun Apr 08, 2012 9:45 am

First and foremost, Happy Easter to everybody as well as a Happy Passover. Second, has anyone else been getting the 'Invalid Form' error in red when they try to post, asking them to try submitting again? It happened to me yesterday for a little bit and then again just now I've been trying to post this for like 15 minutes...

News, Notes, & Nonsense...
- Finish this sentence... "Yoenis Cespedes is _______________________________."
- Zack Greinke was excellent in what many have pegged as a possible return to Cy Young form this year, going 7 innings of shutout ball fanning 7.
- Both Lucas Harrel and Tommy Hunter both also notched 7 shutout inning starts in winning efforts, though with much less fanfare.
- Lucas DUDA, Prince Fielder, Miguel Cabrera, Cory Hart, and Aaron Hill all smacked 2 HR apiece yesterday in winning efforts.
- The Mets stove off the end of the season for yet another day, moving to 2 - 0 atop the NL East, while the Yankees face being swept by a division opponent today to start 0 - 3.
- Highly polarized Dee Gordon swiped 3 successful bases for the Dodgers last night in a 3-for-4 effort.
- Largely debated Brandon Morrow surrendered just 1 hit over 7 innings, issuing 3 walks and striking out 3, which was described as a poor performance by Cafe Jays fans. He gets Baltimore next time out, where I anticipate he'll give up 5 Earned only to hear the same fans cite how well he pitched ;-).

Today's Schedule...

Clay Buchholz (R) @ Max Scherzer (R) (-120)

Joey Carreno (R) @ Derek Lowe (R) (-125)

Mike Minor (L) @ Jon Niese (L) (EVEN)

Carlos Zambrano (R) @ Bronson Arroyo (R) (-130)

Vance Worley (R) (-130) @ James McDonald (R)

Anthony Swarzack (R) @ Jason Hammel (R) (-130)

Phil Hughes (R) @ Jeremy Hellickson (R) (-115)
- God I'm going to love listening to WFAN tomorrow morning if the Yankees get swept to open the season.

Juan Nicasio (R) (-140) @ Bud Norris (R)
- Need a spot start? Nicasio seems like a pretty good option today...

Lance Lynn (R) @ Randy Wolf (L) (EVEN)

Jordan Zimmermann (R) (-130) @ Jeff Samardzija (R)

Jonathan Sanchez (L) @ Ervin Santana (R) (-180)

Aaron Harang (R) @ Clayton Richard (L) (-125)

Matt Cain (R) (-130) @ Josh Collmenter (R)

Gavin Floyd (R) @ Matt Harrisson (L) (-190)
- If you're spot starting chasing Wins, Harrisson seems like a good option today.

Can we just buy out the rest of Bay's contract and get someone decent to fill his spot? It doesn't matter how far you move in the fences, the guy is just awful. I look forward to the Niese/Minor match up.

The Mets and Blue Jays should just amalgamate into one massive pile of suck :-b
They could be called the Newronto Blue Jets

Git 'er done Selig!


In other news, Lucas DUDA =

Mark Reynolds and Dexter Fowler are both not playing today. Reynolds is hurt from being hit by a pitch, and Fowler is just benched, I think. Just an FYI for those that haven't set lineups yet.

It's Sunday. Check your lineups as lots of regulars will be getting days of rest due to that gruelling first week. Heck 50% of the Al West is still in bed with no plans today.

You wanna talk resurrection? I've got a feeling about Adam LaRoche this year. 4/5 with a tater yesterday. Obviously last year doesn't count as long as the injury's not debilitating, and it doesn't look to be. He is who we thought he was, and I'm not crowning him, but he's hitting cleanup in a not terrible lineup. Assuming he's healthy (and assuming he staves off the platoon threat from the legendary Mark DeRosa), is there any reason to assume he won't hit around .270 with 25 HR, drive in about 90, as per his career averages? That'll play at CI, no?

Finish this sentence... "Yoenis Cespedes is a Cuban assassin cyborg sent from the future to destroy the Major leagues and ensure Cuban baseball hegemony."

Minor vs Niese. ;-D

Adam Laroche at CI. ;-D (well, a qualified ;-D anyway)

Continuing coverage of the Red Sox season-long melt down. ;-D

AussieDodger's opinion of the Jays. :-t

So Goldschmidt was just dropped in my league.
Ya, that. Just. Happened.

I can only assume it was a misclick and since I have the #1 waiver priority I ain't complaining.

But of course I already used my 3 adds for the week so I can't even submit my claim until tonight at midnight, when naturally, he will already have cleared waivers.
