Clearly Vogey isn't swinging at pitches that aren't in his sweet spot. Until he gets two strikes; then he tries to make contact.

I've seen him hit several homers with his defensive swing.

4-for-5 including his 17th homer for Vogey. I think it's safe to say he's graduated from Quad-A.

Alex and Eugene, I like your thinking. Vogelbach and the boys will grind it out.

If you play for ERA/Ratio you will have a smoke and mirrors pitching staff long enough to make teams that don't realize you won't make IP feel like they are out of the race.  You will have that 82+ points and they will trade starters on option years or closers who turn into pumpkins eventually.

I'm doing that with my $14 pitching staff.  It's working great.  I've got 57.5 hitting points and 27 pitching so far.  ERA/Ratio look good, but I'll never reach 1,100 IP; we have 10 pitchers.

A second closer will come cheap, so I would stick with the hand you've dealt yourself. You'll finish last in Ks but you might not finish last in wins. 950 IP is an easy reach.

Been a week since the 29th auction in the Plain Wheeler Dealer League (5x5 AL), and I am still trying to figure out whether I can win, while finishing a projected last in strikeouts and probably wins as well. I zagged as the league zigged heavy with starting pitchers, and sit with four starters (Heaney, Skaggs, Cahill and Chirinos at $20 because of two keepers), a lot of setup guys and Brad Hand. Total pitching staff at $63.

So, if I finish last in two categories, and third in the other eight, that's 82 points. Not enough. Second in the other eight would mean 90 points, which I doubt I will do. Attempting to move up from last in Ks is doubtful, and chasing wins is not a good idea. 

My intention for now is to play eight categories with all I got (though I need the starters, and maybe another later, to make the 950 inning requirement). Any thoughts?

The attendance is at least interesting.  The Rays won 90 games last year and should be competitive again this, but they've never gained traction no matter what.  The Jays gave up and their fans know it.  And, the Mariners rearranged the roster completely.  Casual fans probably didn't know what to make of it, but considered it negative b/c of the trades of Cano, Diaz, and Segura and the failure to resign Cruz the four recognizable stars.  It turns out that things are going pretty well so far.

It used to be that the next batter waited for you at home plate.

Should baseball be worried about these attendance figures yesterday in parks that aren't affected by the cold?

Safeco: 13,567

Trop: 10.933

Rogers Centre: 12,110

Nah. They play for the TV money.
