Buehler out-pitched him (75-64 in the game scores) but Max got the W when the Nats staged an uprising in the 8th inning.

He was owed some luck. His BABIP even now is .375. His FIP is 2.24.

All 3 runs he allowed tonight were due to 2 misplays that were scored hits and an ill fated decision to bring the infield in with 2 in scoring position in the 1st.

I am not happy with Max right now. I can’t imagine the multitudes who roster him are happy either.

Max has begun the year giving a Jacob deGrom impersonation. Be funny if he keeps it up and he wins the Cy Young Award.

$41 in Tout

$40 in LABR

$46 in CBS

I froze him in 4x4 at $49 and I don’t think I am crazy.

Well, maybe a little.

Max led the majors in strikeouts this spring: 34 in 26.2 IP. Three walks.

But if I raise my bid for him, where do I find the money to pay for everyone else?

That's what I'm trying to figure out.

So how do we fix that? In fantasy there is nothing to fix. Buying wins means buying pitchers on teams that are into winning. In real baseball? Back in 1994 I thought the minimum payroll was a no brainer solution for players and owners alike. Since they've had a few chances to adopt it and haven't, there must be a problem us lay people don't see. 

But what has become clearer is that it isn't the whole solution, even if implemented (though it would help). We'd be much better off with one that takes incentives away from teams that finish lowest, and perhaps even relegates them to Triple-A. If you finish last there should be consequences. As sports fans we're asking far too little of our leagues.

In real baseball, for some teams, wins don't count. And that's a problem.

This goes to the heart of a lot of our long fantasy discussion, my friend. What is the value of what players actually did? How does that translate into future expectations? Wins is one area where future expectations have to be severely tamped down.
