OF Help

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on November 22, 2020

The Rays designated Hunter Renfroe. If I’m the Giants, I jump on this guy. Right handed power bat? Check. As far as I’m concerned only one dude has an OF spot locked down for 2021: Yaz.

Platoon him if you must but I want me some Renfroe next year.

Easily the most interesting NFL game today goes down in New Orleans. Sean Peyton strangely deciding to start gimmicky Taysom Hill is a head scratcher. Maybe he puts Winston in after a couple of series? Either way, will be fun to watch.

    Looks like Pads hammered Rays on that deal, getting Cronenworth and Pham. From what I understand he has good arm and is not that bad an OF. Only made $3mil with Rays and hit 33 HRs for Pads not so long ago.
    2020 saw many other hitters just never get into it…sounds like good inexpensive bounce back candidate, with power.

    Those 3 years of 400+ ABs each season for Pads he never had less than 50 XBHs, with right around (and once over) .500 slugging. Never fewer than 26 bombs, and .788 OPS. Plus 2019 he had 13 OF assists, 8 in RF 5 in LF. Btw he and Dickerson that’s one powerful L/R platoon.

    I am in on Renfroe too. Maybe getting back to the NL West is just what he needs.

  4. willedav said, on November 22, 2020 at 8:43 am

    As Chuck and others mentioned, Niners did good job most of game holding Brees in check. Hill sure seems lot more controllable. I think Wilbon on PTI said he has thrown 20 passes in his career…is that right?

    • Winder said, on November 22, 2020 at 8:50 am

      It should be an interesting game. Hill’s been in the system for awhile now and from what i understand he got all of the 1st team snaps this week. NO has so many weapons that this one could go either way.

    • unca_chuck said, on November 22, 2020 at 9:21 am

      Don’t worry. Atlanta will figure out a couple ways to shoot themselves in the feet.

      • Winder said, on November 22, 2020 at 10:11 am

        Lol. You are probably right but I am still rooting for Atl. The Niners need all the draft position we can get.

  5. unca_chuck said, on November 22, 2020 at 8:51 am

    Not even that. 10-18 205 in 3+ seasons. 1 pick. A division game no less. He’s gonna run. Or hand off. Seems odd but they’ll likely go 2 QBs most of the game anyway.

  6. Bozo said, on November 22, 2020 at 9:33 am

    I thought the same thing when I heard about Renfroe. Dickerson doesn’t hit LHPs, Renfroe does. Make it happen cap’n.

    • Carstie Clausen said, on November 22, 2020 at 9:52 am

      Yes, looks like a plurality of Flappers are in on this. Z&H–are you guys paying any attention to what the most committed Giants fan are saying about Renfroe? Unless your sources totally agree this would not be a good move relative to something we mere fans are not in on—get it done–asap.

  7. Macdog said, on November 22, 2020 at 11:15 am

    What, we’re giving up on Darin Ruf?

  8. zumiee said, on November 22, 2020 at 11:41 am

    Looks like the Giants have given up on Chris Shaw.

    • alleykat69 said, on November 22, 2020 at 12:04 pm

      Yeah Giants have already dumped Shaw,Aramis Garcia,that pitcher Humphrey they got for Hamilton..
      Many more moves upcoming I believe..

  9. alleykat69 said, on November 22, 2020 at 11:59 am

    I would be in on Renfroe he has the RH pop they can use .He does have a high K ratio and a OBP however that Z might not care for.But close to 100 HR’s and I believe he hits well at Oracle it’s worth a flier..

    The thing about Taysom Hill and I have never liked him is he has major value this week in fantasy football due to the fact he’s eligible as both a QB&TE which is unheard of in fantasy.So you can start him as a TE even though he’s the starting QB and all his points count running the ball are throwing are a TD pass thrown!

  10. willedav said, on November 22, 2020 at 12:02 pm

    mm always liked Latavius Murray, 25 yds on swing pass and 11 yd run on this drive.
    Hill has done more good things today than I would have thought. And now he scores on keeper.

  11. willedav said, on November 22, 2020 at 12:05 pm

    Hey Mac, forget Ruf are you giving up winning NFC East? Wentz is losing, has thrown pick 6 and NYGs would only be half game out if Browns and Mayfield don’t blow it.
    3 winnable games left Cincy Cle Boys could get them to 6…which might be enough.
    Would you rather win division, or lose it?

    • Macdog said, on November 22, 2020 at 12:17 pm

      I might start to believe if they can beat a team outside the crappy division.

      • willedav said, on November 22, 2020 at 12:19 pm

        just saw Burrow being carted off, knee injury I think. Too bad he’s awesome but Bengals, next week opponent, likely even worse without him, no?

      • Macdog said, on November 22, 2020 at 12:40 pm

        Yep Wille, saw that too.

  12. alleykat69 said, on November 22, 2020 at 12:42 pm

    Taysom Hill 24 fantasy points not bad for a TE that hasn’t scored a point!
    ESPN fantasy football will have to change his eligibility next week and make him a QB only, it’s just not fair to be allowed eligible in 2 positions!!
    Unless I had him this week hee hee which I don’t sadly..

    • Winder said, on November 22, 2020 at 2:48 pm

      He has already been changed at CBS, not sure about anywhere else since i don’t have him anyway.

  13. willedav said, on November 22, 2020 at 1:20 pm

    wow Titans get last laugh on Ravens.

  14. Flavor said, on November 22, 2020 at 2:21 pm

    can’t recall an MVP go from MVP to underwhelming also ran like Jackson in Baltimore.

    • willedav said, on November 22, 2020 at 2:45 pm

      mmm yes. too much credit too soon, game is lot tougher than that. Look what Niners did to someone as talented as Aaron Rodgers last season–couple ass kickings.

    • Winder said, on November 22, 2020 at 2:51 pm

      I think a lot of that is on Greg Roman. The league has figured out how to play him. Just like Kap when he was a Niner and Roman was OC.

      • Winder said, on November 22, 2020 at 2:57 pm

        Jackson is a way better QB than Kap was mainly because he can read defenses. Both the Niners of the Harbaugh era and the current Ravens rely heavily on their defenses. And the Ravens D is not near as good as last year.

    • Macdog said, on November 22, 2020 at 2:56 pm

      Hard to believe Joe Montana only won one MVP award.

      • djloo27 said, on November 22, 2020 at 3:07 pm

        Same for Henry Aaron…

  15. willedav said, on November 22, 2020 at 3:06 pm

    Joe Don Looney wins 6th at Del Mar, edging out odds on favorite Crash Corrigan.
    Big stakes race coming up in 8th.
    Also saw big name out of town jockeys Joel Rosario and Irad Ortiz will be at Del Mar for turf stakes races Thursday on final weekend.

    • djloo27 said, on November 22, 2020 at 3:10 pm

      Rosario is having a great year and is no stranger to the west coast…

  16. willedav said, on November 22, 2020 at 3:09 pm

    All the running QBs are eventually going to have to win games with their arms, decision making and accuracy. Look at what has happened to Cam Newton. You can get by with speed and athleticism, but some of greatest passers ever, and most fun to watch, had neither.

    • Winder said, on November 22, 2020 at 3:14 pm

      Yep, RG3 is a good example of that. The current AZ QB Murray might be a little more difficult to catch up to. He’s kinda like a Michael Vick.

  17. alleykat69 said, on November 22, 2020 at 3:35 pm

    The guy with the strongest arm and can run hard too has to be Josh Allen.I can see him leading the Bills of all teams to lead them to a SB win someday and erase the 4 agonizing losses by Jim Kelly and Marc Levy not to mention Scott Norwood the FG chocker kicker..

  18. willedav said, on November 22, 2020 at 4:03 pm

    wow Loudmouth 13-1 shot wins Cary Grant stakes under Abel Cedillo. C Blacker had the favorite Galilean who finished out of money and Loudmouth as strong second choice..

  19. Flavor said, on November 22, 2020 at 4:09 pm

    WillieD track updates, on races he’s not even betting on, is the best thing to spring up at the flap this year.

    • xoot said, on November 22, 2020 at 5:18 pm

      it’s great, really great. The man can focus on and analyze and enjoy sports like no one else. But it’s second best, for the year.

  20. alleykat69 said, on November 22, 2020 at 5:21 pm

    Good for Willied!! I do bet but only on the horse that takes the biggest dump in the Paddock area as it makes his jockey lighter at the gate..💩🐎

  21. xoot said, on November 22, 2020 at 5:24 pm

    I think Collinsworth or whatever his name is (I know, I know) just called Mahomes probably the greatest player of all time.

    Somehow, since the raiders left Oaktown I’ve been rooting for them more. This must be some sort of pandemic Stockholm Syndrome thing.

    • unca_chuck said, on November 22, 2020 at 5:29 pm

      If he lasts as long as Russell Wilson. Mahomes has better weapons around him.

  22. willedav said, on November 22, 2020 at 5:41 pm

    Football teams don’t retire numbers? That Raiders DB in #24…Willie Brown was HOF corner and SB hero.

  23. unca_chuck said, on November 22, 2020 at 6:10 pm

    Not the Raiders. The Niners do.

  24. Macdog said, on November 22, 2020 at 6:17 pm

    Raiders crack first and only get 3.

  25. Macdog said, on November 22, 2020 at 6:24 pm

    A punt!

  26. zumiee said, on November 22, 2020 at 8:24 pm

    Raiders botch the coverage at the end.
