Daily Notes | The FB365 Delivers! Edition

In the bullets of yesterday’s daily notes there are some intriguing nuggets or pearls of wisdom I would like to go back over. The first, Tulo’s groin strain and my recommendation of who to possibly replace him with. I looked no further than Marco Scutaro, current Rockies second sacker, who retained his SS eligibility from last year in Boston. Scutaro came through last night with a 2-for-5 night including a solo HR and 2 runs scored. I’m like a crystal ball! FB365 delivers! This is info most people would pay an arm and a leg for and we are just giving it away! Of course said ball was knocked off the table and shattered by an errant elbow as I was trying to catch flies with chopsticks and my recommended start of Bud Norris went down the toilet like the coffee poop I had this morning. He only made it through 1.2 IP giving up nine runs…egh…OK I can’t lie anymore. There is no crystal ball. There is a system I have though that involves a dart board, blind fold and a cat. Don’t worry the cat isn’t harmed because he is the one blind folded throwing the darts.

In other news, Carlos Gonzalez homered again, and Zack Greinke struck out seven in six innings. In other news…

  • Nick Markakis is going to mis 2-4 weeks with a broken wrist.
  • Matt Kemp is back on the DL now and will be out at least 4 weeks. Even though it’s the lowest type of strain, there is more precaution this time around as there is additional strain in a different area of the hammy than last.
  • The Red Sox aren’t planning on putting Dustin Pedroia on the DL despite him not having played in 3 days and the uncertainty of when he will be ready to go. 
  • Over the last 7 days, there are 24 players in baseball tied for the lead in WAR, with a 0.2. I suppose that means you have been counting on pitching to win match ups and pick up roto points, eh?
