Dude is absolutely tearing the cover off the baseball right now, SS/3B eligible, and is stuck playing second fiddle on his own damn team. Guy isn't that far removed from being a Top 2 Overall Pick in fantasy baseball. He's still almost six months shy of his 30th birthday, but many have written him off as an afterthought. The best part so far, in my eyes, is dumping a career 16% K-Rate down to 11%. What sort of expectations do we have for Hanley after the All-Star break? Can he bat .300 (the rest of the way)? Slug .500? Those would be his career averages, not some wildly high ceiling projection.
some of us are:

For all the guys clamoring for Puig to get into the all star game... why aren't you also lobbying for his teammate Hanley? They've put up identical lines, but I havent heard a single person say that Ramirez deserves to go.

This place has better info than the rotoworld forums, but if the site never works then I guess rotoworld will get all the traffic regardless.
This has only been a recent phenomenon. Presumably there's some changes in the works on the back-end of the Cafe causing it. Otherwise, the Cafe has typically been among the most reliable sites I've visited on the net. Long story short, expect it just to be temporary stuff leading ultimately to a better pay off.
I'm running Hamels out there tonight, while my opponent has Iwakuma/Cingrani/Quintana/Ian K/Archer. I realize he may rack up the Ks and possible Ws, but if one or two or more of these could get rocked that would be great.
And the complaints about the server are pretty ridiculous. This site has been running almost flawlessly for ten years, and a month of sketchy service and people are up in arms. I have faith everything will be fine shortly and stay that way.

The guy asking has only been here under a month, and the Cafe has had more dead time during that time than probably over the 8 or however many years I've been here. His questions are legitimate. If the site was always the way it has been over the past few weeks, I'd be like WTf as well.
