Jose Abreu doesn't care that he missed two weeks or that he's facing the best pitcher in baseball, guy just keeps on dropping bombs.

It wasn't even a perfect homerun swing and that ball just kept carrying. Quite impressive for his first AB off the DL and against Kershaw, no less.

That blow has been pretty much the only blemish for Kershaw so far. He has been really efficient with 66 pitches thrown in 6 innings. A few errors for the White Sox though, have gifted the Dodgers a lead.

Shelby Miller droppable after last night in a 12 team redraft? He hasn't look good for a long time and getting roughed up against the Royals might be my last straw.

Porcello vs. Toronto tomorrow: start or sit?

7 shutout innings 10 Ks and the win :-D


Also had King Felix going for 7 with the win and 8 Ks.


That went so well I think I'll let all 5 of these guys go today in the same h2h league.

I see him as being droppable. I don't see anyone trading for him, and I certainly wouldn't be starting him any time soon myself.

He actually looked pretty good thru 6 1/3, except for only 2 Ks. I was thinking he was turning a corner. Then they lost a challenge on a bang bang play at first and he hung one for Moose that he actually didn't miss. He recovered to get out of the inning. (7IN, 3 ER) Why they sent him out to start the 8th, I'll never know.
