The real question is can Dozier, Soler and Benintendi get going a little bit.
Yeah that's the part that got me, picking those two, it's not like Whit has led the league in hits twice or anything.

How does someone look so promising coming out of the gates, turn 24 and regress? He's like the much shittier version of Bryce Harper.
I think he'll be ok. The way he griped after getting skull fucked by the ump for the third time last night made me think he's thinking too much and he'll pull through.

Benintendi put on a bunch of muscle to try to hit more HR and lost some of what made him special. He's trying to get back to the lean, explosive guy he once was. I'd rate it inconclusive right now. He wouldn't be the first guy to bulk up and kind of ruin himself (Victor Robles also falls into that category at present - also trying to slim back down and having trouble doing it).

Bryce Harper is an offensive performer who has been 39 percent above average for his career and has never been lower than 11 percent (as a 21-year-old) above average.

Almost every player out there is a shittier version of Bryce Harper. Because he's a superstar.

I dropped Soler from my fantasy team.

He’s going to explode now.

I did this for all of us!!!

So apparently Mondesi is still possibly a month away, was a 6-8 week injury. Yuck.

Should have been out of the inning with no damage. Keller's getting ground balls. Just haven't converted.

Damn it, Whit! Get your head out of your ass! That's twice this game 3 times in the last 2.

Ugly first couple innings. Keller wasn’t good but the defense was pretty bad too.

Keller relies on inducing weird / weak contact. Runs absurd Babips


Not this year. The Magic looks to be gone thus far

Nice outing, Keller. Nice defense, Whit.

Way to help your team out, guys.


Time to stick Whit back in RF. He’s been sucking it up at 2B. But alas, brokedick Mondesi isn’t around or coming back anytime soon so we don’t even have the option of moving Lopez to 2B. And we know they’re not gonna call up Witt Jr. anytime soon. Frustrating.
