I'm working on Big Prices for the Guide. Today I have Steven Matz with a price of $8. What do you think?

Reason to believe yesterday in San Francisco. One run, four baserunners, 11 K in seven IP. More swinging strikes than foul-ball strikes. First-pitch strikes to 18 of 25.

I mean, your team is a total sh*t show and...

I don't know about that. They drafted one of the best offensive lineman to come out in a long time, getting Quentin Nelson, and they also drafted another top lineman as well. Luck is throwing the ball very well according to reports, and I think Frank Reich was a good hire.

I'm on to football, is what I'm saying.


RE: Matz - in all honesty, I rarely watch baseball. I would bet some money that Matz is a lefty, but I wouldn't bet a lot.

Last night's start crushed me in my Dynasty League.

I am ready to give up on him.

Andy - what do you see with Matz? Do you have faith in him? The last 3 starts...ugh.

I mean, your team is a total sh*t show and will be while the Wilpon's call the shots. And with the money they are making on this organization...well, I just hope you can enjoy another 2015 ride soon.

I kid, but I feel your pain, pal.

5 1/3 efficient innings against the Marlins to collect win No. 4. Singled off of Straily in fourth inning to drive in the third run.

That was the good. The bad -- he misplayed a bunt by Straily in the bottom of the fourth with two out and a runner on third, cutting the lead to two -- could have been disastrous, but as it turned out was no big deal.

And so the Mets are undefeated in July and climbed back out of the cellar, where they landed on the last day of June with their fourth loss in a row to Marlins.

Yep, Derek Jeter's team.

The Mets had their best start ever, their worst June ever, and are 33-48 after 81 games.

But you gotta believe. Matz says he does.

He was 2-for-26 before his run-producing single.

"I was in a slump," he said, "but I'm out of it now."

Steven Matz (P) NY-N - Mar. 4

Matz did not make it out of the first inning Sunday after allowing five runs and
recording just two outs, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: In a postgame interview, Matz asserted that his struggles were not health-related but simply a matter of him missing his spots high. Even though
it's just a spring game, this is a bit concerning for prospective fantasy owners
given the young left-hander's struggles last year. The price on draft day will be
low given his injury-plagued 2017 campaign, but that could trend upward if Matz
can string together a few quality spring outings.

His disappointing (to say the least) year can be attributed to elbow inflammation that started during spring training and which never really abated. He made 13 starts in the middle of the season, pitching through pain reportedly and had his season end in August with a series of pastings and nerve surgery in his elbow. That's good news, a path forward, but there have to be concerns about his health. He spent time on the DL in 2016 and had surgery to remove a large bonespur in October. Can he get back into the groove he showed in 2016, before he was hurt? Even if he does, he's a starter without a track record of ongoing success. His upside, his skill, seems unlimited, but his ability to stay on the field remains in doubt.
