TTO Scoresheet Podcast

Episode 31

by Ian Lefkowitz, Ben Murphy and Jared Weiss


AL:

Shane Greene (61% available):
Greene has been solid through a handful of starts for the Yankees and seems to be getting regular chances the rest of the way. Allowing an ERA under 3.00, he’s probably due for some regression, but even if his run prevention catches up to his peripherals, he’ll still be a helpful guy to have around for the rest of the year.

Brandon Guyer (78% available):
With a name that’s probably top 10 on Jared’s “best player names for puns” leaderboard, Guyer is a player that can really help a team in the right situation. As an outfielder getting somewhat regular play, he’s a useful bat, getting on base a reasonable amount of time and showing some pop against left handed pitching. He’s not nearly as good against righties, so make sure you use him accordingly. Having him hit in a high-leverage situation against a righty would be almost as painful as the pun Ben drops when suggesting him on this week’s podcast audio.

J.A. Happ (52% available):
Because you really don’t want to see Pitcher AAA during the stretch.

Caleb Joseph (91% available):
Obviously, Joseph is much more famous this week than last. That could cause him to be overdrafted, were it not pretty much impossible to blow a 44th-round draft pick in Scoresheet. With his defensive prowess, he has locked in the majority of playing time, and he still may run into one now and then. He’d be perfect as a bench catcher if your starter is injury-prone and you don’t want to risk September.

Rob Refsnyder (71% available):
Refsnyder is probably vaguely “overrated” as a prospect in real life, of course depending upon who is doing the rating. His defensive lapses won’t hurt a Scoresheet player, though, as he’ll have second base eligibility no matter where he plays, with the ability to hit enough to force his way into semi-regular playing time in September.
