Anyhow, some of us are still here for baseball, even though much of what we used to get special from RJ is now somewhat commonly available lots of places, but we still get some tidbits from each other now and then--like your analysis of that RP sequence today--it's stuff like that which gives all of us still he a slight edge on the competition.

    Also, Jason and crew recently sold the site to Todd Zola and Masterball but unlike the previous sale, Todd has pledged to keep things as is and enhance the site and content when and how he can.

    I might be off on some details and those IN the know can set em straight if they want to.

    Welcome back and don't spend too much on Devenski in tonight's FAAB!
    Exactly. Rotojunkie was bought by Fanball and they did nothing with us and would not release the site back to us. Hence the new name.

    Lord Zola is the Supreme Funklord and we look forward to the funk.
    Bob- I'm not exactly sure it would ROCK as you say it Byron.. it may be cool, by typical text book descriptions. Your opinion of this is shallow and poorly constructed, but allow me to re-craft your initial thought into something tangable.

    Karinchak gets 1 out in the 7th of a tie game. Clase takes care of the 8th in a tie game. Wittgren now on for the save chance after the Jose Ramirez bomb. This is the first save chance for Cleveland this season.

    ETA: Wittgren gets it done in 8 pitches.

    A couple of notes (I was watching the last few innings):
    The final out was Michael Taylor hitting a ball to the warning track in left centre that Wittgren thought was gone - the look on his face when he saw it caught was great
    Clase was dealing - 100 consistently on the outside while dropping in a few curves

    yea but those 3 KC hitters were swinging at Clase's breaking stuff that was way outside the strike zone. A better disciplined hitter would likely have fared better. he faced Santana .211, Perez .211 and Soler .133 ave.

    Chris Devenski has been placed on the restricted list for personal reasons according to the Diamondbacks and is not COVID related.
    No further details were given at this time. Devenski's velocity was noticeably down during his outing on Tuesday with a more than five-mile-per-hour drop in his fastball and changeup, but this seems to be unrelated to performance. More to come.

    I didnt think someone could be placed on the restricted list for an injury...? I thought it was for DUIs and domestic violence and stuff like that

    I know they confiscated a ball from Trevor Bauers start, maybe it's something similar?

    And also, a 5mph drop in velocity?
