At this point, I'm for this, except definitely Otani.

No, I thought ahead here. Since trading Schwarber from my fantasy team fixed him, and Lester is on my team, I'll just have to trade him, too.


Update: Just released him from my fantasy team 30 minutes ago. He'll be good to go for the playoffs.

Derrick Goold made a thing out of it too... Throughout the series, the Cardinals had reminded the home-plate umpires that they “had to have the plate” with Rizzo at bat. Rizzo, the notorious HBP, is famous for leaning over the plate, and he has the bruises and league-leading 23 hit by pitches to pr...
