Everyone saw this kind of thing happening. The Phillies collapsing at once, I just thought it was going to happen two years from now. There's no farm system here for immediate help, either. Really putting this team on Hamels and Halladay now because its immensely clear that no one wants to step up to the plate, quite literally. Theyve taken all of 25 walks thus far, and I cant find the stat for RISP but it has to be bottom 3.

Does a player in baseball ever actually end up with what he's on pace for? There's 100+ more games to be played.

So I mentioned it on IRC but I figure I would explain how ******** someone is in my fantasy league. We have a FAAB system in place and start with a $1k to use to bid on FAs

Last week someone spent $102 on Jordan Schafer and then this week dropped him and spent $152 on Luke Scott.

Wow just freaking wow.

It's funny how much people freak out after like 3 weeks. Fantasy baseball is a loooong season.

Part of the reason it's so difficult to do even 30/30 is because all the home runs take opportunities to steal away. And guys who hit lots of home runs generally hit plenty of doubles as well; considering third base is stolen with much less frequency than second base, that's another opportunity lost.

Kemp has a fine start to the year, but 50/50 would be an extraordinary feat.

Yeah once I saw Burnett was starting I thought we might be in trouble. I think he is soooo happy to be away from New York, so he is away from all those inflated, weak DH **** lineups :)....but yeah he pitched very well. But we rebounded well tonight.

How come rebuilding in the MLB doesn't work the same way it does in the NFL (Lions), NHL (Hawks + Pens) and the NBA (Thunder + Bulls)? Teams that are hideous in baseball like the Pirates and Orioles seem to stay awful forever with no hope for the franchise despite how many high draft picks they get.

Looks like Daniel Bard's next start will be skipped and he will be made available out of the bullpen.

This looks like it could be in preparation of Aaron Cook being called up.

No salary cap is 1 reason I think.

Teams that are hideous in baseball like the Pirates and Orioles seem to stay awful forever with no hope for the franchise despite how many high draft picks they get.
Salary cap. Revenue sharing.

Of those 4 sports, baseball is the only one that doesn't have some form of those 2 things.

In football a good QB can turn the franchise around very quickly, in basketball one star player can turn it around. It doesn't work that way in baseball.

Drafting is a million times harder in baseball than those sports too.

Along with what the other two said I also think its much harder to be perfect on draft picks. The NFL and NBA typically have pretty good success rate with drafting in the first few rounds.

I think in the MLB you see far more top prospects that don't make anything out of their career.
