MLB Fantasy Breakdown (Wed. 8/1): Rich Hill to Stay Hot Against Brewers

Baseball is a cruel game. Remember that simply timing pitches with a mere contact swing and no PCI movement can feed directly into the no-doubter home run animation.

Once you get more comfortable working counts and seeing the ball, then you should overcommit with the PCI to try and bloop singles to the opposite field or crush an inside pitch. Much like my inability to take only one donut when a co-worker brings in an unnecessarily large collection of donuts in the morning, I cannot lay off of off-speed pitches an inch below the strike zone or fastballs that catch the very bottom. You can set any count, any hitter and any pitcher in a perpetual loop.

Set yourself up with an count and a pitcher that commands the zone that you struggle hitting and go to town. This is an exceptionally helpful way of training your eye and improving your plate appearances. Imagine that your electricity is out and you can only open the fridge so many times before all of the food goes bad.

Should you really waste it to grab and put back 10 different sandwich ingredients? You should not take a power swing with Breakout Emilio Bonifacio on a count with the bases empty just as you should not waste precious refrigerated air making an elaborate sandwich.

However, you most certainly should enjoy the power swing with Live Khris Davis with the bases empty on a count just as you should live lavishly eating that ice cream. As tempting as it is to smash the life out of the ball at every at-bat, the power swing dramatically shrinks the PCI and should really only be used when the player feels comfortable enough to square up the pitch. The Show seems to reward players for patiently working deeper counts, so keep that in mind as well.

MLB The Show 18 game update 1. Take the First Few Pitches I have played The Show for over 10 years straight now, and the nerfing of early-count hitting has been palpable and frustrating over the last few entries. I no longer assume Calhoun cannot be a fantasy contributor for the final two months. It's a new Calhoun. Amazing how quickly things change. Cockcroft -- Matt Chapman , Oakland Athletics.

I'd probably hold Chapman, in large part because I have -- and have had all season -- a higher opinion of him than most. But he's the kind of player who, if I'm getting a rather generous offer from a team wanting to chase his. Chapman's underlying skills suggest he's capable of maintaining value the entire remainder of the season, as his hard-contact rate remains high greater than 45 percent , his fly ball rate is above 40 percent, and he's showing much better plate discipline during his hot streak.

Plus, he continues to flash elite defense guaranteed to fuel a maximum number of plate appearances. I think said value is that of a. Is that a top fantasy third baseman? Perhaps not, which is why I'd listen to offers, but I have a hunch most think he's a low-end corner infielder, and I think he's better than that.

On June 29, Schoop was batting just. Even Mario Mendoza had a good chuckle at the infielder's expense. Since Manny Machado went westward, the middle infielder he left behind in Baltimore has hit. While some have joked that Schoop's surge may be the result of Machado's departure, suggesting some animosity between the duo, reports are that the two former teammates continue to talk as frequently as they can. Besides, Schoop has had a very good full month of July, batting.
