If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

I hate him. Swings at a pitch over his head....about 5 feet off the ground. Useless and now benched most days. All i need is one lousy run from him toniht...0 for 2. Little garden gnome makes me sick too.

Incredibly, Happ was still available in my 10 team H2H, so I cut stinky& grabbed him.

Ya know Odor the little gnome is having to hit into a shift defense. Since when does a midget think hes big enough to be a pull hitter? Hopeless.

I bookmarked this page because in a few months I want to come back and check it out when Odor is hitting 260 with 20 taters.

He has the skills he is running into some bad luck. Check these numbers out.

BABIP sticks out as the first one. He has a .225 BABIP this year as opposed to .297 last year and a career average around .280. But usually we want to check to make sure that he is still hitting the ball hard.

Soft contact rate this year is up to 20.1% from 15.4% last year. But his career average is 19.7%. So this years number is not far off from where it normally is.

Also, he is actually pulling the ball less this year than last year. 47% pull last year vs 46% this year.

He is hitting the ball in the air 3% more this year than last year. His K rate is down 3% this year vs last year and his walk rate is almost DOUBLE.

That Odor you are getting smells an awful lot like bad luck. Maybe with a minor swing adjustment mixed in there that has not quite formed yet. I think he definitely figures it out and has a great second half. I bought low on him...really low. Reynolds for Odor. I loved that trade because 30HR 20 steal second basemen is hard to come by and that is what is in store for Odor.

Hope you're right about the second half...cause he's on my bench. Haven't dropped or traded him either as the offers have been what you would expect for somebody worse than useless.

2 months in hitting .206 doesn't shine much hope for the next few months. That shift defense he's hitting into is something usually reserved for big bats...not garden gnomes.

Why do you think he doesn't have a big bat? He hit 33 taters last year? That's a pretty big bat especially in the friendly confines of Arlington stadium.

He's a midget. He should bat like Altuve. To stand there and think he's gonna knock the ball out of the park or make an out is his approach. Bunt the ball down the third base line gnome.

Oh so you want him to hit 25 homers like Altuve instead of 33. Got it.
