My H2H Points team has been as dominant as can be, but with the playoffs starting next week (2-week matchups) I can't help but think that once (if) Harvey and Fernandez are shut down, that's pretty much all she wrote for me... And that's not even considering the possibilities of Cashner, Teheran, or Cingrani...

Alex Rios claimed off waivers, according to Ken Rosenthal. No word on the claiming team. Be interesting to see what the Sox do.

Eh. The opponents he's done it against haven't been very impressive. His peripherals look pretty good and his FIP and xFIP say he's been much better than his ERA. I wouldn't say he's back, but he's probably a mid to high 3 ERA guy who will K a guy an inning.

I was very impressed with Salazar. I think it was a mistake to send him out there for the 8th, but even then, ain't no shame in giving up a HR to the best hitter in baseball. I think he has an incredibly bright future.

next 3 starts look to be against @WAS, BOS, and PIT. Not too bad, probably sit him vs BOS but take a chance against the Nationals and Pirates. Might have to scoop him up, he is still available in my 12 teamer.

Def think he should be owned in a 12 teamer. I agree with those starts.
