4/21 Cheering, Venting and the next Miggy

Postby kab21 » Sat Apr 21, 2012 7:47 am

Is the next Miggy, Miguel Sano? I doubt it but there are some similarities and Sano is crushing the Midwest League at the beginning of the season. He only has a .314/.453/.765/1.218 line with 6 HR's and 18RBI's in the first 15 games. It's about all there is to cheer about for the Twins this season.

I was going to start a thread cuz I'm up early but you beat me to it by a few seconds. here's the matchups and some blurbs for ya

  • Matt Kemp has in my mind passed everyone as the best hitter in baseball for the forseable future.
  • Adam Dunn is back! After a big night he's now on pace for .265-99-37-145-0[]\\
  • Matt Moore hasn't looked good once yet this season. My worry-meter is on high.
  • Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit his second home run of the season, making his first blip on many fantasy radars
  • The Red Sox put a Bucholz uniform on a pitching machine and proceeded to get spanked by the Yanks, who hit 5 home runs.
  • B.J. Upton came off the DL, and rewarded sharp managers in daily leagues with an 0 for 3.
  • Beachymania continues to roll, putting up zeros thru 7+

Here's today's MLB games:

Reds vs. Cubs - Leake (0-1) vs. Maholm (0-2)

Marlins vs. Nationals - Sanchez (1-0) vs. Strasburg (2-0)

Rangers vs. Tigers - Harrison (2-0) vs. Porcello (1-0)

Giants vs. Mets - Vogelsong (0-1) vs. Pelfrey (0-0)

White Sox vs. Mariners - Humber (0-0) vs. Beavan (1-1)

Yankees vs. Red Sox - Garcia (0-1) vs. Doubront (0-0)

Dodgers vs. Astros - Kershaw (0-0) vs. Weiland (0-2)

Cardinals vs. Pirates - Westbrook (2-0) vs. Correia (1-0)

Rangers vs. Tigers - Feliz (1-0) vs. Verlander (1-1)

Rockies vs. Brewers - Pomeranz (0-1) vs. Estrada (0-0)

Twins vs. Rays - Pavano (1-1) vs. Shields (2-0)

Blue Jays vs. Royals - Hutchison (0-0) vs. Mendoza (0-2)

Braves vs. D-backs - Hanson (1-2) vs. Saunders (1-0)

Phillies vs. Padres - Halladay (3-0) vs. Luebke (1-1)

Orioles vs. Angels - Arrieta (1-0) vs. Weaver (2-0)

Indians vs. Athletics - Gomez (0-0) vs. McCarthy (0-2)

Ugh, I'm happy that Hanley is working out as my top guy in my NL auction but like everyone else who did an auction draft, who isn't kicking themselves for not paying up to get Kemp this year? :,-(

Benching him until he proves that he is not Matt Moore's bad pitching twin brother.
But he'd better pitch well next time cause SEA and OAK is coming to town after that.
probable Matt Moore schedule:
04.26 vs LAA
05.01 vs SEA
05.06 vs OAK
05.12 @ BAL
05.17 vs BOS
05.22 vs TOR
05.28 vs CHW
06.03 vs BAL

I missed that draft and the auto drafter left $120 on the table, exactly the amount that I would have bid on Kemp if I had been there. :,-(

Thats a bit premature to say.
2 weeks in the minors, and already compared to one of the best players in the game. :-o
We all see what happens to players coming with huge expectations to the majors not called Ryan Braun and Miguel Cabrera.
And those players were mashing in AAA while Sano is in A
ETA for Sano is 2015 :-? if everything works out
maybe Dynasty leagers could consider him as a very long and risky project.

The way the padres swing and miss, Halladay could end up with 20 K's today.

That's some serious projection. I used to have a tool where I'd look five games out, but I'd never go that far.

To be honest, I'm surprised more people don't look that far forward when making decisions on picking up pitchers.

Even though that last 3-5 matchups there have about a 60% accuracy of happening, good solid work.

I had 5th pick in a snake-style draft and by some miracle Kemp fell to me. Definitely very happy about that right now. ;-D
