2B: JTurner 1(1)

Notes:

  • Cliff Lee tossed eight dominant innings against a strong lineup in Thursday’s start at Atlanta, scattering a pair of hits with eight strikeouts en route to the win. It was a cold night in Atlanta, and Lee was aided by the wind on a couple of fly balls, but his performance was brilliant nonetheless. What a difference a year makes, as Lee did not pick up his first win in 2012 until July 4. It’s difficult to accurately predict how many games Lee might win this season, but he should continue to post great ratios and strikeout totals as one of the National League’s best starters. “They seemed really aggressive and were swinging the bat pretty good the first couple of games,” Lee said. “I just tried to allow them to see the fewest amount of pitches as possible and attack the zone in good locations. For me, the key is to limit the amount of pitches they can see by throwing strikes and allow the defense to make plays.” Lee will make his next start Tuesday at home against the Mets. He went 2-1 with a 3.09 ERA in five starts last season against the Mets.(Rotowire, CBS Sports)
  • Kris Medlen labored in Thursday’s start against Philadelphia, giving up two runs and six hits over five innings. He walked four and struck out three, tossing 92 pitches. Medlen was fortunate to have just surrendered two runs and was shaky in general, not recording a 1-2-3 inning until the fifth frame. He was incredibly dominant after the All-Star break last year (0.94 ERA, 0.82 WHIP with a 95:14 K:BB ratio in 95.1 innings), and it’s unrealistic to expect similar numbers over the course of a full season. However, Medlen is certainly more talented and skilled than what he showed Thursday. “I made some adjustments. I felt like I was rushing a little bit in the very beginning,” Medlen told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “It’s something I felt the entire spring. I left some balls up. Obviously the walks stood out; I think I’ve been up here long enough that you know that I don’t walk people.” Medlen is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday at Miami. He went 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA and a 0.75 WHIP in five appearances (three starts) against the Marlins last season. (Rotowire, CBS Sports)
  • Donovan Solano had two hits and a walk in four trips to the plate Wednesday as the Marlins fell to the Nationals 6-1. Solano’s performance qualifies him as an offensive standout in a sorry lineup that scored only a single run in its three-game set against Washington. Solano is looking to build off of a solid rookie season in which he posted a .296/.342/.375 slash line over 285 at-bats. He’s off to a nice start, going 3-for-9 with two walks and just one strikeout in the opening series. (Rotowire)
  • After going 0 for 3 in the opener Monday, Marlins catcher Rob Brantly got back on track as he enjoyed a solid performance Thursday against the Nationals. Brantly picked up his first multi-hit game of the season as he singled in the second and the sixth, finishing 2 for 4 in a 6-1 defeat. He is now hitting .286 through two games. (CBS Sports)
  • Reds third baseman Todd Frazier was one of three Cincinnati hitters to homer off Angels starter Joe Blanton during a 5-4 win Thursday. Frazier’s first home run of the season was a solo shot leading off the second inning. He finished 2 for 3 with two runs and one double, which came close to being his second home run of the game. Frazier’s fly ball went off the yellow padding atop the wall in the fourth inning, and he continued to third when center fielder Mike Trout bobbled the carom for an error. The umpires checked to make sure the ball didn’t clear the wall. Frazier scored on Ryan Hanigan’s sacrifice fly — Cincinnati’s only run that didn’t come off a homer. Frazier has hit safely in each of the first three games. He’s batting .333 (4 for 12) with two RBI in that span. (CBS Sports)
  • Mets infielder Justin Turner started at second base Thursday against the Padres in place of Daniel Murphy, and Turner got hits in his first three at-bats of the season. He finished 3 for 4 with a double. (CBS Sports)
  • Casey Kotchman (hamstring) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday. Kotchman suffered a left hamstring strain in Wednesday night’s game against the Nationals. Greg Dobbs is filling in for him at first base on Thursday and could keep that starting gig for the next two or three weeks, as Kotchman is expected to be out until late April. (Rotoworld)

Roster Moves – Week 28 – October 2nd, 2012 – Final 3 Days!

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • C Hector Sanchez, Giants ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • CM Kevin Frandsen, Phillies ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • MI Pete Kozma, Cardinals ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • UT D.J. LeMahieu, Rockies ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • RP Jonny Venters, Braves ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • RP Josh Stinson, Brewers ($0 bid, Add to Actives)

Up:

  • SP Edinson Volquez
  • SP Jake Westbrook

Move: 

  • OF Donovan Solano (from MI)

Down: 

  • RP Jon Axford
  • SP Jhoulys Chacin
  • C Ryan Hanigan
  • CM Chris Johnson
  • MI Logan Forsythe

Cut:

  • OF Travis Snider
  • SS Troy Tulowitzki
  • OF Justin Maxwell
  • SP Wily Peralta
  • SP Zack Greinke
  • RP Luke Gregerson

Notes:

  • All of the pick-ups were made specifically with categories in mind. With only three full days remaining in the season, and the Atomic RoadRunners in first place over Misogynistic Padres by one point, we need all the assistance we can get.
  • Batting Average: Frandsen, LeMahieu, Kozma, and Sanchez are all hitting over .300. Hanigan, Johnson, Forsythe, Snider and Maxwell were dragging on the AVG.
  • ERA: Stinson and Venters were brought aboard to assist. Westbrook and Volquez have both pitched their last games in the regular season, as has Peralta and Greinke, so they can’t help. (Westbrook and Volquez can help by not pitching while on the active roster).
  • Tulowitzki isn’t coming back. He went on the DL back in May. Thanks a lot – you owe me $31.
  • Meanwhile, the Misogynistic Padres also made six pickups (we were the only two teams to make FAAB bids). His were for RBI, SB, AVG, and potentially Saves: OF Alex Presley, C Jason Castro, RP Santiago Casilla (former 2012 RoadRunner), RP Philippe Aumont, RP Jared Hughes, and RP Craig Stammen.

Roster Moves – Week 27 – September 25th, 2012

Up:

  • UT Donovan Solano
  • RP Drew Storen

Move: 

  • CM Chris Johnson (from UT)

Down: 

  • 3B Todd Frazier (from CM)
  • SP Wily Peralta

Notes:

  • Misogynistic Padres picked up RP Kenley Jansen, for a $2 bid, who we released three weeks ago. It was anticipated that Jansen would be out for the remainder of the year. He is being eased back, and the Dodgers have since acquired Brandon League from the Mariners to be closer.

Roster Moves – Week 26 – September 18th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • SP Chris Carpenter, Cardinals ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • SP Wily Peralta, Brewers ($0 bid, Add to Actives)

  • SP Andrew Werner
  • C Kelly Shoppach

Notes:

  • SP Wily Peralta had been released by the RoadRunners on May 22nd.
  • Previously-injured (thoracic outlet syndrome) SP Chris Carpenter had been selected in the 2012 WBRL Auction by Cover Zero for $14. He was released on August 21st.
  • Misogynistic Padres picked up OF Jimmy Paredes for a $0 bid, who we released last week.

Down:

  • OF Travis Snider

Cut:

  • OF Jimmy Paredes
  • OF Jose Tabata
  • RP Santiago Casilla

Notes:

  • SS Zack Cozart has been out for several days with an oblique injury.
  • OF Travis Snider has missed several games with a hamstring injury.
  • Cutting C Rob Brantly was a mistake, but when the RoadRunners tried to acquire him, Get Off Kong added him with a $2 bid.
  • Misogynistic Padres tried to acquire both Adam Eaton and Donovan Solano with $0 bids, but since he is higher in the standings, RoadRunners win the tie-breaks.
