Another great effort, this one against the Bronx Bombers in the Bronx.

If you FAABed him, raise your hand. Unlike the Monkey, we don't need a screenshot, we just admire your courage.

Not exactly an endorsement. More a tip of the hat to a job well done.

Really?  An endorsement?  Can he actually provide a positive return?  More than Zimmermann or Moore or Ross or Holland or the consonant man or Cashner or Godley or a host of others that have burned many a rotisserie player in the past?

Seven scoreless against the Indians yesterday. How'd he do it?

Lots of four-seam fastballs between 92 and 94.

Almost as many splitters between 82 and 84.

The occasional knuckle curve between 74 and 76.

The occasional slider between 86 and 88.

The rare two-seam fastball between 91 and 92.

Throw all those pitches for strikes, good strikes, and it's not a fluke.

Homer Bailey (P) KC - Mar. 19

Bailey is expected to open the season in the Royals' starting rotation, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Ian Kennedy was sent to the bullpen Tuesday, all but confirming Bailey will break camp in Kansas City's starting rotation. The veteran hurler owns a brutal 6.25 ERA and 1.67 WHIP over parts of the last four seasons (231.2 innings), and he didn't necessarily turn any heads in camp, so it would be unwise to expect much from him in 2019.

Not that long ago, the Phils were predicted to become the Yankees of the NL.

Buster Olney at ESPN terms the deal the latest incidence of LA "money laundering" and hints that the move may be intended to free up luxury tax payroll and outfield space for one Bryce Harper.

Love the comment on money laundering.  Reminds me of the carwash in Breaking Bad.  Maybe Bryce is LA's Baby Blue!

Four, five or six years from now we'll have some idea what else the Dodgers got for Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp and Alex Wood besides Homer Bailey.

And of course they didn't get Bailey for long. He's already been released.

Jeter Downs and Josiah Gray are the prospects.
