Short-lived stay at the top. What about you, Howard?

Joey Rickard Baltimore Orioles

It looks like it's going to be Rickard in left, Mancini in right against lefties.

Leaving even more turf to cover for Adam Jones.

Alex Patton Alex
Nick Castellanos Detroit Tigers

Some serious butchery committed in the field. His -2.8 dWAR in 2014 could be threatened.

Alex Patton Alex
Brandon Kintzler Minnesota Twins

Perfect on save ops. Now the question is can he go unscored on in April?

Alex Patton Alex
Kevin Gausman Baltimore Orioles

Understandable.

Mike Landau ML-
Brandon Martin Tampa Bay Rays

Maybe we should pull back on casting stones. I mean, I'd hate for everyone to know the extent of my atrocities. Not saying what Matt Bush did was OK, just saying it's not OK to judge others.

Matt Roberson Doc
Mitchell Haniger Seattle Mariners

Had this guy on two teams, and I'm already feeling the effects of his absence. Going to be a long 4-8 weeks.

Kevin Gausman Baltimore Orioles

I didn't consider it fun after the top of the 6th. 

Eugene Freedman EugeneFreed

Okay, I lost the Gausman win, but man, was that a fun game.  Lot of kids jumping up and down---I guess for them 14-11 is more fun than a 2 hour 20 minute Sale/Tanaka duel. 

These Yankees are fun to watch.

Brandon Martin Tampa Bay Rays

That's because Bush is a dick.

Mitchell Haniger Seattle Mariners

Tristan Cockcroft - who seems to catch all the luck in Tout Wars - just seems cursed in LABR.

Mike Gianella MikeG
Rhys Hoskins Philadelphia Phillies

The drums are beating. They're not going to give up on Joseph tomorrow but if he struggles for another 2-3 weeks, Hoskins is getting the call.

Josh Bell Pittsburgh Pirates

I think it's time to buy, Phil.

The Pirates are still committed to Bell and he has so much power as a switch hitter.

He he flaws in his swing from both sides, but the ceiling remains high.

Keith Cromer Slyke

Well, in the 11 games since my comment and Slyke's response, Bell has gone:

.333/.429.633 with 3 HR and only 8 K's in 30 ABs. 

Now what to think?

If he'd posted those #'s for the first 2 weeks in a keeper league, you couldn't touch him ... buyer's opportunity?

I saw the HBO story too and was disappointed that there wasn't some kind of commitment from Bush that he was setting up a trust to pay for the victim's ongoing medical care and treatment.

Eugene Freedman EugeneFreed

Geez...what a terrible story.

On another note, I have mixed sentiments on Matt Bush getting another chance with the Rangers based on his story and watching the profile on HBO Sports.

Bush ruined a life and he seemed less than sympathetic for his actions.

And the victim, who was a marathon runner who can barely walk now, and his family will not got any future earnings of Bush.

Seems quite unfair.

Keith Cromer Slyke
Trayce Thompson Los Angeles Dodgers

Whatever Trayce had in the past, he's totally lost it this year.  So far he's 1 for 48 between the majors (8 ABs) and AAA, with 19 Ks to 5 BBs.

Phil Ponebshek Texpope
Brandon Martin Tampa Bay Rays

Horrific LA Times storyof a prospect gone bad.

J.J. Hoover Arizona Diamondbacks

Rodney really struggling and Hoover is second in line.  He's available in my league, jettisoned just last week and an ill-timed moved to grab someone else.  But ringing in my ears is the -11 Hoover of last year (and a lot of comments from this site about it).  Sustainable?  I'm kicking myself for not having grabbed Jake Barrett in Ultra.

Doron Scharf jerome
Rhys Hoskins Philadelphia Phillies

I took him with my second ultra pick (so 26th overall), and a Phillies fan in our league immediately commented "too early!", which made me think...too early.  But I'm now hoping/thinking maybe it wasn't.  Would Tommy Joseph be upset how much I am rooting against him?
