4/2 Cheering, Venting and Acing Opening Day

Postby daullaz » Tue Apr 02, 2013 10:19 am

-Turns out that Clayton Kershaw and Felix Hernandez are pretty good at baseball -- who knew? In related news, Edinson Volquez has no business starting opening day.

-Over/under on Bryce Harper home runs by Monday: 4.5. I mean, he still gets to play the Marlins twice, and Nolasco is (frighteningly) their "ace."

-The imminent demise of Carlos Marmol's fantasy stock was exceedingly slow over the last few years, but it's just around the corner.

And finally ...

-Diamondbacks replacement OFs Gerardo Parra and A.J. Pollock combined for a gritty 7-of-9 performance in a D-backs win. Do-overs on Cody Ross?

Is it a bad sign when, on my main team, I don't have a single SP going yesterday... or today? :-o

yes. Grienke is the only ace off the top of my head being held back.

I thought it was bad that I only have 1 pitcher going the first 2 days (technically 3 days). Sale's arm hasn't fallen off yet. Go, baby go.

Not necessarily, esp. if you're a wait-on-pitchers guy like many of us. Gio, Peavy, Latos, Harvey, Kuroda, etc. all pitching Wednesday. Cliff Lee is a fantasy ace and doesn't pitch till Thursday. Rather have those guys than Monday pitcher Nolasco, Worley and Volquez.

I said it when Eaton got injured. Unless you're in a pretty shallow league, Parra should be owned and started. He's got very good value leading off for that team. Absolutely demolished a ball yesterday that would have been a homerun in any other ballpark.
