TheRotoFeedJarred Puts on a Kelenic

Freshly promoted Mariners rookie outfielder slash phenom slash heart throb slash Seattle savior slash pride of Pike's Place, Jarred Kelenic put on a clinic in just his second game in the majors with three hits in four at-bats, scoring two runs and his first big league home run, a 2-run shot to right in the third inning that put the Ms up 3-0. After a disappointing debut on Thursday where he went 0-for-4 without reaching base, the dinger was Kelly's (can I call him Kelly?) first major league hit, but he wasn't done showing off his skillz with a "z" yet. We got to witness that highly touted speed of his, as he hustled out two doubles and added an additional RBI out of that C-Attle lead off spot. Mmhm. The super prospect is likely owned everywhere at this point and for good reason, I imagine what follows is some hilarious worst-to-first Major League type scenario where Jarred carries the Mariners back to relevance. Please let it be so. This isn't entirely out of the realm of possibility, Kyle Seager and Mitch Haniger also homered Friday night and raised eyebrow emoji all of a sudden the Ms have an offense? If Kelenic is going to hit like this, and going to hit lead off, it kickstarts this offense in a huge way and just his presence could make a lot some of these players more valuable. I'm looking at you, Dylan Moore (2-for-4, run, 7th steal). Wishful thinking, perhaps? Still Kelenic's big night Friday was exciting to see, and a glimpse of hope for a fanbase that hasn't seen their team in the post season in almost 20 years. Is he going to hit three extra base hits every night? Maybe add some steals tomorrow? Close out games? Strike out sides? No-hit the Tigers? Call balls and strikes? Probably! Either way, you've got to be hype to see what's next for Jarred Kelenic. This kid's gonna be a star! Ha-cha-cha! Here's what else I saw Friday night in fantasy baseball:

TheRotoFeedDylan Ceases To Amaze

var _bp = _bp []; _bp.push({ "div": "Brid_4095024_1", "obj": {"id":"10951","stats":{"wp":1 ,"title":"RZBL%202021%20WAIVER%20WIRE%20WEEK%205","autoplay":true,"video":"771122","width":"640","height":"360" ); With a two singles and a double, the White Sox big hitting star yesterday was Dylan Cease. Saying after the game, "With Lou Bob going down like a deflated beanbag -- No offense, Mitch Haniger -- it's important we all step up like an 80's aerobics teacher," then he began to count off exercise moves, "5, 6, 7, 8, schlemiel, schlimazel, let's see you burn, boys!" Then he did some step aerobics out of the room. Obviously, he's being modest, and way more anaerobic. It wasn't just his hitting people were doing the swoon for -- 6 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 3 walks, 11 Ks, ERA at 2.37, and now his last 13 innings have been shutout with 20 Ks. That makes me want to sing (Keep Feeling) Fascination by The Human League. We're all in that. The Human League. I'm saying that's all of us. I will rock your world though if you say anything bad about boba. Cease looks to be going to his 96 MPH 4-seam fastball more than ever in his career, paired with an 86 MPH slider that has a .174 xBA, which is just goofy for a pitch he's throwing 30% of the time. Don't want to be caught with my shorts around my ankles because I'm wearing a banana hammock, but Cease looks to be emerging as an ace. Not a fantasy number two or three, but a number one. I don't say that lightly, though I am writing this with a feather and 100 monkeys are typing it up later--Let's go, Ling-Ling! Type faster! Anyway, here's what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:
