Vargas bounces back with five solid innings
(PŘEDEVČÍREM 23. 7. 2017, 05:56:17, mlb.com)
Royals left-hander Jason Vargas took a no-decision after yielding two runs on seven hits and a walk with two strikeouts in five innings Saturday vs. the White Sox.
Spin: Vargas turned in a solid outing on the heels of a two-start stretch that saw him allow 12 runs on 15 hits -- including five homers -- and five walks in just 7 2/3 innings. The veteran southpaw could have more regression on the horizon with a 4.12 FIP that is more than a full run worse than his ERA, making him a possible sell-high option in fantasy leagues. Vargas is set for a difficult road matchup next on July 28 against the Red Sox. (více...)

Hehe, I'm such a jerk. Â I finally dedicate a lede to Jason Vargas and it's to point out how bad he was last night -- 2 2/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA up to 3.06. Â Well, look at it this way. Â If he wasn't good for so long, him being bad wouldn't matter. Â For unstints, my friend texted me yesterday, "R. Kelly's being accused of holding girls against their will in his cult." Â I texted back, "That's one cult where you really don't want to drink the Kool-Aid." Â It was the least surprising news yesterday. Â 2nd least surprising is the Vargas regression. Â What happens with regression, stays in Vargas. Â He's not done regressing either, if his peripherals hold. Â He has a 6.8 K/9, 2.4 BB/9 and 4.87 xFIP, i.e., Â A lost Vargas is not just a Wynn, but one of those sure-cuts, sure-cuts. Â Anyway, here's what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball: (více...)
