4/10 Cheering, Venting, That's ok Santos I didn't want saves

Postby BronXBombers51 » Tue Apr 10, 2012 9:24 am

I'll do this when I can but don't bank on it.

In case you missed it:
-Sergio Santos continues to to haunt the dreams of fantasy owners everywhere as he blew another save and gave The Bobby Valentine Experiment their first win of the season.
-Yu Darvish made his major league debut last night and followed in the footsteps of such heralded Japanese SP imports as Daisuke Matsuzaka and Kei Igawa by allowing 5 ER, 8 H, 4 BB and 5 K in 5.2 IP. Still gets his first W though, because my boys Kinsler and Hamilton (ok, and Cruz) refuse to lose.
-The Phillies can't score. No really, they can't score. That's 8 runs scored in 4 games so far.
-Chris Sale looked very formidable against the Tribe, allowing just a run in 6.2 innings of work.
-Some guy named Juan Francisco committed two separate two-out errors to extend innings in Houston, giving Beachymania a loss despite only give up 1 earned. :-t
-In some sort of sick, sick joke, the New York Mets have yet to lose a game. Someone tell them it's April Fools Day, not month.

Nice production all-around for me yesterday on the offensive side. Three HR from Hamilton, Kinsler and Pablo. The Beachy loss and Santos implosion hurt. Hey, at least Aceves recorded an out (ok, he got a whole save!).

No pitchers going today.

Can't lose guy - Daniel Bard. Gets bombed and he ends up the closer in the near future?

Likewise. Of course, that doesn't mean I won't be watching Matt Moore...

At this point we can't rule out 162 - 0, right?

I've got a serious fearection trotting Matt Moore out today. Not because his performance will largely affect my Week 1 outcome, but cause I <3 TB and want to see them win the AL East. But if he could help out my team as well, that'd be awesome.

Moore should have a Yu Darvish type victory considering he's facing Porcello here.

Running Bard and Feliz out as the final pieces of my "I thought I drafted 8 closers" puzzle. So far, so good.

have Moore and Volquez in 4/5ths of my leagues. That means I'm in too many leagues.

I'm going to hope that my teams just need to get the jitters out. Otherwise it's going to be a long season.

In other news the Twins remain perfect.
