When will the List come out today? Need to figure out which of my spice girls I should drop for Merril Kelly.
Thanks for all your work, Nick.
Kyle Freeland vs ATL at Coors field 4th… don’t like that at all… I’d have him around 12
cool, when you make your own list/ranks for free we’ll nit pick all your thoughts as well.
Nick is a big boy and he will be alright without your help. All AR is doing is providing feedback which is valuable in every way.
Sure would like to know Nick’s rationale for Freeland ranking @ #4 before game time. Wishy washy on starting him.
He did well in Coors last year + I like his increased whiffability from last start.
I’m struggling with deciding who to start this week. Who do I sit? Need to exclude 2 of the following. Leaning Mikolas for today.
Taillon @ChC / Mikolas vs. Dodgers / Darvish vs. Pitt / Pivetta vs. Wsh / Mikolas vs. StL / Taillon @Wsh
Pivetta is radioactive right now imo.
May this be the reverse jinx you need to get a 10-K QS from him, but I dropped him.
Ouch – Teheran below a handful of scrubs. I get that it is @ COL.
Taillon just had to survive a nightmarish 2nd.
