2019-07-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)How "Fo Real" is Daniel Ponce De Leon? Can I rely on him for the rest of the year in a 16 team dynasty? As much as anyone can rely on a pitcher, or the Cardinals, this year anyways.
(captnamerca from America)
With your qualification...sure. But I wouldn't really be counting on this level of success (or this high a strikeout rate) going forward. It seems aberrant. (Craig Goldstein)
