Carrasco I think may be dealing with an injury. He left one start with 'tightness' and has not pitched well since. Maybe he needs a DL stint to right the ship as well.



Wish someone could explain what is going on with Kluber as well.

Kluber I think is just a victim of some bad luck. He's still got a 9.00 K/9, 2.08 BB/9, but a .366 BABIP, almost 40 points above his career average. To boot his FIP is 2.98 and xFIP 3.01, and his strand rate is an impossible 63%, nearly 10% lower than his career norm. He's a guy I think you've got to just keep trotting out there, believing that he's going to look as we believe he should. He had a miserable April last year as well (maybe he hates the cold?), only to come back and win the AL Cy Young. I am trying to buy him wherever humanly possible.


Yeah I am doing the same in the one league I own him in. Not much of a choice really. Type of player that if he goes south on you you are basically screwed so you roll with it and let the chips fall where they may,

Cargo has been brutal so far. I'm going to have to ride this trainwreck out in my dynasty league. Tough to trade him for anything of value and I have other OF options.

Betances. I laugh at those that were drafting him in the top 100 (top 5 closer) without even being declared as the closer. And actually he hasn't truly been a bust yet since he has a 0.00 ERA and all of those K's but you draft closers for saves and he isn't getting them.

Yep, CarGo. In my H2H league I was offered Chase Whitley for CarGo. I should out that guy to the league.

I also trade VMart for Gio Gonzalez in the BRAL. Still giggling on that one...for now.
