Gameday 81: Marlins vs Phillies

Miami Marlins (41-43) vs. Philadelphia Phillies (36-48)

Starting Pitchers:
MIA: Brad Hand (0-1, 6.38)
PHI: Kyle Kendrick (3-8, 4.22)

Time: 6:10, Marlins Park
TV: Comcast Sportsnet
Weather: Chance of Storm, 85
Media: Twitter and Facebook

A Note for Tonight: The Phillies are trying to avoid the sweep.  The Phillies offense has been struggling, and they will face Brad Hand who hasn’t pitched in the Majors since the end of May.  Hand is coming off the disabled list from an ankle sprain.

    In my fantasy league we have 4 moves per week.

    I basically have a free move this week as I am winning most categories and wont use them.

    I scoured the available players and match ups.

    I saw that the Marlins are starting a lefty and Dom Brown is on paternity leave.

    I figure John Mayberry has to be a lock to play. He rakes left handed pitching.

    So I rent him for exactly one day. Today.
    He is already dropped for tomorrow.
    And he has no real value except on a day with limited games and vs a lefty.

    So sandberg sits him.

    I could have had Revere or Altherr but I figured Mayberry a lock.

    This sucks.

    but sums up my feelings for the 2014 Phillies.


    Still this is a must win game.

    Go Phils and maybe <ayberry will get a pinch hit chance.

    If they can’t hit this guy…

  3. Andrew from waldorf

    I really don’t get the left handed line up?

    Unless this guy cant get out lefties and can righties?

    But righties have a 1.020 OPS vs hand this year and lefties have a .739


    Why Ryno???

    Just have to screw AFW???

    I don’t see them scoring a lot.

    .555 OPs vs RHP
    ,947 OPS vs LHP

    Yet he tarts vs Koehler a right hander last ngiht and goes 0-4 and sits today?


  5. Andrew from waldorf

    July 3, 2014 at 6:28 pm

    Come on Shenkman where is the stat that says I am out of line?

    Mayberry should have sat today?
    There must be a valid reason.

    I am trying to give Sandberg the benefit of the doubt.

      I dont know the reason for this, but it’s a much better bet that JMJ will come through for you pinch hitting than starting.

    4 moves per week? What league are you in Andrew?

    • lefty

      July 3, 2014 at 6:51 pm

      Is that yahoo?

    • lefty

      July 3, 2014 at 6:53 pm

      I bet Kendrick hasn’t thrown under 21 pitches in the first two innings in any other game this year.

    Just turned on the TV and am SHOCKED that Mayberry is Not playing

  9. lefty

    July 3, 2014 at 6:56 pm

    Maybe they’re close to a Mayberry deal and dont want him to get hurt?

      There has got to be some reason other than “we just wanted to give ihm the Night off”.

      I hope so

  10. lefty

    July 3, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    Mr Hand already has thrown 65 pitches. Ozuna is earning a Phillies killer reputation.

  11. lefty

    July 3, 2014 at 7:01 pm

    Nice bunt Mr Hand. Spicoli would be proud.

  12. Andrew from waldorf

    July 3, 2014 at 7:02 pm

    Yes Yahoo and they limited moves because I am good at using moves.

    As you lefty might think.

    I will drop a player with ease and most people cant.

    They get attached.

    Like Ruben Amoron.

    I am not ttached to the players I draft lol

    Stanton only 3-24 vs KK.

    I hope people are mocking me about mayberry LOL

    Its my fault.

    Like when I am in line at the store and the person in front of me has a problem and I am held up.

    Its not that person it happens because I am in line behind them.

    I picked up Mayberry so that’s why.

    And he will never be on another fantasy team again probably.

  16. lefty

    July 3, 2014 at 7:19 pm

    Odds we score a run on Mr Hand?

  17. lefty

    July 3, 2014 at 7:20 pm

    Im going with crooked number right now. Ya hoid it here foist.

  18. lefty

    July 3, 2014 at 7:22 pm

    Ha- Jaime called Mr Hand Cy Young

  19. lefty

    July 3, 2014 at 7:28 pm

  20. Andrew from waldorf

    July 3, 2014 at 7:35 pm

    You dick!!!!

    Here come the flood gates.

    The last time this was a good offensive team was 2009 NLCS.

    Why didn’t he use asherer in center and mayberry in left?

    OK I am pissed at sandberg lol

    Only because of fantasy

  24. Andrew from waldorf

    July 3, 2014 at 8:56 pm

    Or not

    This team sucks

    Thanks sandberg for sitting your best bat vs left handers.

    Good game. I was starting to worry that the Phillies weren’t going to win the World Series.

  30. lefty

    July 3, 2014 at 9:25 pm

    Feels like the first time, it feels like a very first time.

    Winner winner
    Chicken dinner

    Never in doubt

    Keeping the division title and world series hopes alive in a must win game.

    Andrew is messing with us..Only the staunchest of fans will believe that season was over after the Braves series.

    Wow, what’d I miss? Just tuned in the Orioles, now in first place with Crush Davis hitting worse than Ryan Howard in every dept, sporting a .205 ba.. And this team is built, where the Phil’s are hoping for Howard to hit and it’s just not going to happen. This club will be finishing just about last because they just do not have the talent anymore, mainly the once formidable Big Piece.

    • Lefty

      So true, so true. Amaro said it himself earlier this season. I don’t remember the exact quote, but something to the effect of the team going as far as Ryan Howard carries it. Too much responsibility for any one man IMO- but I guess for those that have more, more is expected.
