    Yoo so whats poppin fellas... & females if applicable..?? In an effort to keep this league as enjoyable & as competitive as possible, i thought it would be in the Leagues Best interest if we were able to maintain some level of communication amongst us all, whether that consists of just some basic discussions about how the League &/or MLB Season are playing out & the hot topics impacting each, or even just some shootin the shit in general & maybe a lil bit of harmless competitive banter & good ol' fashion shit talkin.. Whatever
    It takes to spice up this marathon of a season & take us away from the constant grind necessary to steadily compete against atleast somewhat functional league mates... So anyways i figured id kick the shit off with some subject points for discussion to get the ball rollin & hopefully we can go from there.. Plus we get the added bonus or really evaluating who might or might not be entirely invested & thus can better determine who it is we're likely to be battlin with for the next 6+ months or so... But for starters anyhow, My name is Derek(or D), comin outta Boston(well not from the city itself persay, but from the connecting town just outside the city where the Suburbs begin)...& im 32 years old and been at this sh*t seemingly forever... Ya'll..??

    Ryan Braun Oct 20 4:00am ET

    Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is coming off one of his worst seasons in 2017 which has led some fans to ask about the possibility of him being traded. A trade is unlikely for a few reasons. For one, Braun has 10/5 protection which means he can block trades and has said the only team he is interested in being moved to is the Dodgers. Also, he is owed a fairly substantial salary for the next few seasons that may be higher than teams feel he is worth. Causing some concern is that the Brewers have some young guys who have already looked good elsewhere in the outfielder and have a few top prospects waiting for a full-time chance. There is plenty to suggest that the Brewers would be willing to listen but not much to give hope that something will get done.

    Corey Seager Oct 20 1:53am ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager (back) is expected to return in time for Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday, Oct. 24, according to manager Dave Roberts. Seager missed the entire NLCS with a back injury.

    Jose Quintana Oct 19 11:20pm ET

    In a must-win game for the Chicago Cubs, Jose Quintana struggled lasting just two plus innings. Quintana left in the top of the third with no outs and the bases loaded. After Hector Rondon came in, Enrique Hernandez hit a grand slam which ended Quintana's stat line one in which he gave up six runs on six hits. The Cubs gave up a huge haul to acquire Quintana during the middle of the season and he is expected to be a big part of their rotation moving forward. He has top twenty five potential for fantasy owners next year.

    Jon Lester Oct 19 5:20pm ET

    Speaking before Game 5 of the NLCS, Chicago Cubs pitcher Jon Lester said he is preparing to start Saturday and won't be available in relief. Lester has previously pitched in relief throughout his playoff career. With Wade Davis reportedly unavailable the Cubs will hope Game 5 starter Jose Quintana can pitch deep into the ballgame. Other than Wade Davis the Cubs bullpen has been shaky.

    Ben Zobrist Oct 19 3:30pm ET

    Ben Zobrist is starting in right field and batting eighth in Game 5 of the NLCS on Thursday night against the Dodgers. Jason Heyward and Jon Jay are on the bench as Albert Almora will bat first and start in center field. The Cubs who are down 3-1 in the series will square off versus Clayton Kershaw.

    Shawn Kelley Oct 19 2:50pm ET

    Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports that Shawn Kelley, who was at one point the Nationals closer, received stem-cell injections in his elbow and expects to be healthy in time for the 2018 season. Kelley had bone chips that finally sidelined him in September. Surgery was an option but Kelley avoided it, using the increasingly common injection route instead. In 26 innings in 2017, Kelley did manage to strike out 25 batters. But he also gave up 29 hits, and 12 of them were homers. With both Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson locked up for next year, the best Kelley can hope for a middle-relief role going forward.

    Jose Peraza Oct 19 2:50pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds second baseman hasn't wasted much time getting back on the field this offseason. The 23-year-old is already playing Winter Ball in Venezuela, going 2-for-4 on Tuesday. Peraza was expected to be Cincinnati's starting second baseman this season but lost his job to Scooter Gennett in late July. The youngster struggled offensively in 2017, batting just .259 with five homers and 37 RBI in 143 games. At the end of the season, he told reporters, "I need to be more consistent, offensively. So I'm going to go back to Venezuela and play winter ball and hopefully make the adjustments to be better next year." With Zack Cozart a free agent, it looks like Peraza will be given a chance to win the starting shortstop job in 2018.

    Jake Marisnick Oct 19 2:50pm ET

    Houston Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick (thumb) played catch Thursday. Marisnick is hoping to be ready to join the roster if the team advances to the World Series, but he'd only be a pinch runner or defensive replacement for Houston in that scenario.

    Brandon Finnegan Oct 19 2:50pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds left-hander Brandon Finnegan is finally healthy after struggling through an injury-plagued 2017 season which saw him make just four starts. Finnegan suffered injuries to both of his shoulders in 2017 but told the media that he is completely healed and able to have a "normal offseason" in his words. He strained a muscle in his left shoulder during a game in April and, while rehabbing, slipped and fell in July, tearing the labrum in his right, non-throwing shoulder. Finnegan plans to start working out in November and will begin throwing in December. Finnegan wound up pitching just 13 innings in 2017, posting a 4.15 ERA. He will be a fixture in the Reds' starting rotation in 2018, provided he can remain healthy.

    Glen Perkins Oct 19 2:40pm ET

    The Minnesota Twins informed left-hander Glen Perkins that they will not pick up his $6.5 million option for 2018 and instead will pay him a $700,000 buyout. Perkins now becomes a free agent, although he has previously stated that he is not willing to pitch for any other team in the league. Perkins played high school ball near Minneapolis and has only pitched for the Twins in his big league career. If the Twins don't re-sign Perkins to a new contract, there's a good chance he may retire. Perkins is third all-time on the Twins with 120 career saves.

    Yuli Gurriel Oct 19 2:10pm ET

    Yuli Gurriel went 1-for-4 as the Astros lost their third straight to the Yankees 5-0. Gurriel has been one of the few stabilizing forces in the Astros lineup throughout the playoffs and will be one of the keys to waking up a suddenly stagnant offense. Gurriel overall is hitting .382 through 34 playoff at-bats with five extra-base hits and four runs batted in. He also is 4-for-5 lifetime against Yankees Game 6 starter Luis Severino. While the Astros cross their fingers that hitters like George Springer and Marwin Gonzalez turn it around, Gurriel needs to continue to produce.

    Michael Brantley Oct 19 1:20pm ET

    Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley underwent ankle surgery on his right ankle on Wednesday to stabilize ligaments. He will be out for four to five months before he is able to fully resume baseball activities. Brantley was able to return to an extremely limited role in the playoffs, but this surgery was always on the schedule. He should be fine for next season, assuming no setbacks, which might be a stretch when considering Brantley's injury history.

    Adrian Beltre Oct 19 1:20pm ET

    Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said that veteran third baseman Adrian Beltre is slated to be the team's starting third baseman next season. "This team will be designed with Adrian Beltre as our third baseman," Daniels said. Although the aging Beltre played in just 94 games in 2017 -- his fewest since his rookie season with the Dodgers in 1998 -- he still managed to stay productive with a .312 average, 17 home runs and 71 RBI in 340 at-bats. While he'll be an obvious injury risk, there's still value to be had here with Beltre as a mixed-league corner infielder with pop.

    Michael Brantley Oct 19 11:23am ET

    Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley (ankle) underwent surgery Wednesday, Oct. 18, to stabilize ligaments in his right ankle. He's expected to be out four to five months. The team has three days after the World Series to decide on his $12 million option for 2018.

    Wade Davis Oct 19 1:00am ET

    After throwing 92 pitches over his last two appearances, Chicago Cubs closer Wade Davis will be unavailable to pitch in Game 5 of the NLCS. When asked who would be able to close tomorrow if necessary manager Joe Maddon said "It's not going to be Davis". The Cubs need a miracle to continue their season and their bullpen has really struggled thus far. Should the Cubs need a save the most likely options would be Pedro Strop or Carl Edwards Jr.

    Chris Smith Oct 19 12:33am ET

    Oakland Athletics RHP Chris M. Smith was outrighted to Class AAA Nashville Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Javier Baez Oct 19 12:30am ET

    After being hitless this postseason and benched in Game 3, Chicago Cubs infielder Javier Baez responded by hitting two home runs in Game 4. Both were solo home runs. Baez finished the game 2-for-3. The series is now 3-1 with the Cubs needing to win three straight games to keep their season alive.

    Wade Davis Oct 19 12:30am ET

    Taking no chances in a must-win game, Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon turned to his closer Wade David to get the final six outs of the ballgame. Entering the game up two runs, Davis gave up a home run to Justin Turner the first batter he faced. Davis would settle down and get the save but it came at the expense of 47 pitches. He has now thrown 92 pitches in his last two outings.

    Willson Contreras Oct 19 12:30am ET

    Chicago Cubs catcher/outfielder Willson Contreras put the Cubs on the board with a solo home run in the bottom of the second inning in Game 4 of the NLCS. It was exactly what the Cubs needed as their offense has struggled all throughout the playoffs. Contreras finished 1-for-3.

    Glen Perkins Oct 19 12:23am ET

    Minnesota Twins LHP Glen Perkins will have his $6.5 million option for 2018 declined, the team announced Wednesday, Oct. 18. The Twins will instead pay Perkins a buyout of $700,000.
