Khris Davis:  1/5 with his 11th HR while hitting .214.  Davis will hit his requisite 35-40 home runs but at a major cost to your team batting average.  Always overrated. 

Aaron Judge:  1/5 with his 11th HR while hitting .306.  Giancarlo Stanton so wants to be Aaron Judge right now. 

Gary Sanchez:  2/4 with his 10th HR while hitting .209.  Gary Sanchez so wants to hit for average like Aaron Judge right now. 

Andrew Triggs:  6 ER in 4.1 IP with an ERA of 5.31.  Shame on those who started Triggs at Yankee Stadium and actually shame on those who even own the guy. 

Domingo German:  6 ER in 5 IP with an ERA of 4.26.  German started off well but was hammered the second time through the order and the K's were nowhere to be found as he had just 1.  I would hold for one more monitored start but no one ever said it would be smooth with any young arm.

Wilson Contreras:  3/5 with his 4th HR while hitting .281.  As hot as can be right now, Contreras may be a guy to buy low on at the end of April next season when he is hitting .220 with zero bombs. 

Anthony Rizzo:  1/4 with his sixth HR while hitting .214.  All is well.

Matt Duffy:  2/4 with his second HR while hitting .309.  Those in AL-only formats should be all over this.

Manny Machado:  1/4 with his 13th HR while hitting .342.  We have a new challenger for the number 2 spot in 2019 fantasy baseball drafts.

Jonathan Schoop:  2/4 with 2 home runs (3 for season) while hitting .241.  Jonathan, you have been missed.  Still more than enough time for 25 home runs here. 

Chris Archer:  6 ER in 7 IP with an ERA of 5.64.  Just a complete abomination here as Archer gave up three more home runs.  He is a cut loose guy in all leagues right now no matter the name brand. 

Stephen Strasburg:  6.2 IP 5 H 1 ER 1 BB 9 K with an ERA of 3.28.  I guess Strasburg and Morrow are both praying to the same injury gods. 

Hanley Ramirez:  1/5 with his sixth HR while hitting .286.  No doubt a nice beginning to the season for the veteran Ramirez but already the average is leaking and the health is far from a given.

Justin Smoak:  1/3 with his 5th HR while hitting .246.  So far it is the same below-average and utterly boring Smoak we have seen almost his entire career outside of 2017.  Never pay for a career season 

David Price:  5.1 IP 5 H 2 ER 3 BB 6 K with an ERA of 4.89.  I cut Price in my Experts League in a '"throwing up my hands" move.  If someone else wants him, they can have him. 

Francisco Lindor:  4/4 with 2 home runs (12 for season) while hitting .311.  Yeah so no need to A: Talk about whether or not Lindor's power uptick from 2017 is sustainable or B: Whether his average dip a year ago was a fluke. 

Jakob Junis:  5.2 IP 6 H 4 ER 2 BB 7 K with an ERA of 3.53.  The ERA is inching closer to 4.00 by the start.  I don't need to remind you about me telling you to sell back in mid-April.

C.J. Cron:  2/4 with his 8th HR while hitting .282.  Yeah getting away from Mike Scoscia has its pros. 

Gregory Polanco:  1/3 with his 8th HR while hitting .226.  Homers and nothing else from this now annual tease. 

Francisco Cervelli:  1/2 with his 6th HR and hitting .307.  Cervelli seems to be tapping into more power as he ages which is typical.  Love it. 

Carlos Correa:  1/2 with his sixth HR while hitting .295.  Yeah those stolen bases are now but a distant memory. 

Evan Gattis:  2/3 with his second HR while hitting .210.  Where did the power go?

Brian McCann:  2/4 with his third HR while hitting .262.  McCann is once again producing a professional fantasy baseball catching campaign.  Something to be said for the consistency. 

Charlie Morton:  7 IP 4 H 1 ER 0 BB 14 K with an ERA of 2.03.  Outside of Ozzie Albies, Morton was my best pick in the Experts League.  Never have I had such profitable drafts as I had this spring. 

Cody Bellinger:  1/5 with his 5th HR while hitting .270.  We need to see more of this.  Scroll down to read today's Crisis Point. 


  1. They are both struggling this year, but who's more worth having on a roster, Archer or Castillo? Any upcoming rookie SP that could replace Archer?

  2. Castillo actually represents upside so I would lean him. Archer is as messed up as any pitcher in the game right now.
