    Oh god.. another guy “Melvins” wants to troll on.

    1.04 - Kerryon Johnson, RB, Detroit Lions Measurables: 6'0" 213 lbs Patience and power, I just love to watch his tape. The Lions are dead serious about establishing the run and the new regime hand picked their guy when they could've had others. Rocky road to 3-down bell-cow status but I think he will get there. Oh how I would love to own the first Lions 1,000 yard rusher since Bush in 2013, second since Kevin Jones in 2004. I think this is the one. @petekrum OTB

    And one more thing to the trolls. I get it. If you bust on the kid, you get to say you were right and didn’t fall victim to the hype machine, because that’s just so humiliating when you “follow the herd” and get burned. But if he does well? Well s---, you also now get to enjoy his stats because you also picked him up and will now gladly admit you “were wrong, even though your prediction was logically correct.” You’re hedging your bets. Of course you picked him up and he’s on your team. If you actually wanted to believe in your trolling posts, you’d have NOT picked him up, lol. If you think he’ll be sent back, own that and drop him right now. If not, keep your trap shut and just enjoy this moment for what it is and the reason WHY we all play this game; to own a share of a potential new 19 year old superstar. And if he struggles, then so be it. But to deny his minor league stats, which at his age are literally second to NO one, basically ever (including the greatest player in the game currently), is a massive troll.

    This Angels situation is a mess. Really annoyed by it because that’s a good club and someone’s going to get a bunch of saves.

    1.02 - Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin Measurables: 5'11" 214lbs, 10.49 100m dash (2x state champ) Productivity: If you you break Adrian Peterson's records, you're fine by me. Tape: Size-speed-power, vision and tackle breaking, and coaches working to expand his role in the pass-game this year. Lock it in. @JHM_13 OTB

    There's obviously a lot to analyze about why they called him up, how long he'll stay, what he'll produce, yada yada. But not be a total romantic idealist here, and not to discount that analysis at all, but this just seems like something to enjoy. Isn't this just awesome? We get to watch a 19 year old stud bat very soon. Maybe he'll be sent down fairly quick. Or maybe he'll just amble along at near waiver wire level. Or maybe we all just actually picked up the next closest player to challenge Mike Trout. Who knows? But this is so exciting.

    Is it a risk though, or is that something GMs burn in our brains because they’re not calling up prospects for financial reasons? I don’t really get the “messing with his development” aspect. If he struggles, he goes back down and knows exactly what he needs to work on. If his skillset AND mindset are elite, he’s going to succeed long term regardless. If they’re not, he won’t, regardless. I don’t buy the “harm his development” narrative that is pushed by teams. Maybe a SP working on a 3rd pitch? Sure. But not an elite bat.

    Juan Soto is the first MLB player to have been born after the following debuted in the Majors: - The D-backs - The (Devil) Rays - Adrian Beltre

    Breaking news: During the time everyone has been arguing over whether Soto is worth a pickup in their league, someone has already added him to their roster. You snooze you lose when top prospects are called up.

    Kapler actually helps. Imagine if he was on the giants. He wouldn’t close until he was much older, acquired a little bit of a gut, and hairline began receeding.

    what's the deal with all the vent posts in here? 2 pages of nothing but worthless drivel .. anybody with a brain knows that Buxton is not returning an ROI on his draft cost right now .. this forum should be a place to discuss objectively buxton's outlook (yes he is performing poorly -- why? are there indicators of a turn around? how much merit should we put in his second half breakout last year? etc. etc.) .. not be a flood of 1 liners calling him a bum/clown/choke artist/etc. These type of comments add no value whatsoever -- there are other places on this board for 'venting'.

    Comparing the hype for a kid born in and playing baseball in Las Vegas and a 16 year old kid from Santo Domingo just seems like a fruitless exercise. Soto was hailed as one of the best international prospects in the year he signed. His star has only risen steadily and quickly since then. So what does Harper's hype matter when the "forecasts" love Soto now too?

    He needs to start peeing on his hand. Worked for Moises Alou, worked for Taillon. Don’t be afraid of a little piss Rich.

    Looks to possibly be back on Tuesday according to Giants reporter: Kerry Crowley‏ @KO_Crowley FollowFollow @KO_Crowley More Kerry Crowley Retweeted Giant Potential I would expect Mac Williamson to be in the clubhouse in Houston on Tuesday. No reason to keep him down at this point.

    Signs of life from big Willie, 3-4, 2B and HR, hitting .342 with 2BB/3Ks over the last 10 games. Hopefully a call-up is near.

    He's a definite hold in 30+ team, CF only, sub-.200 leagues. Probably cant find anything better to stash on your last bench spot in those.

    Possibly Soto. Wow.. trying like crazy to get more confirmation. But wow.

    I believe a few starts ago someone in the pivetta thread said something like "it's clear this guy has no business being a pitcher, it would be clear if you watched today's start like I did " He's had a good and excellent start since. Sometimes pitchers don't have it on a day. I have no shares of this guy, just find this sort of "drop him he's a bum" after one start not helpful to anyone really.

    pretty much every pitcher thread besides the super elite guys is like this. It's sad and very unueseful that pitchers get evaluated off one start.

    hit a big DONG off the lefty Corbin (who has been stellar this season)....GOATforto is back. Run as fast as you can, push your grandmother out of the way and add him if he was dropped in your league.

    Just tweaked his right quad on a routine groundout in the 4th and went back with the trainer. Weekly leaguers especially keep an eye out to see if he gets replaced at DH today. Could be looking at a DTD situation at least.

    I see this kid get the call and all I think is, “Hey, Toronto, we’re looking at you.

    Lol jesus...... It was a late callup last night. He had to travel and join the team. He's a young kid they want him to get acclimated and settled in. Probably gets a PH in the game. This is standard stuff. Can people stop with the "If he's not in the lineup tomorrow" You don't call up a kid like this from AA just to be your 4th OF. The Nationals know what they're doing, they understand this more than fantasy team owners.

    You basically made a point and then followed with the worst use of support I've seen on these forums. 12 team 35 man rosters....yea of course every team has a few guys that are cut-worthy for Soto. If you read the above posts, you'll note that we're not talking about these insanely-deep leagues. A 420-player league is vastly different from the standard 12-team 24-man league many play in.

    What do you have to lose? Dropping your worst player for Soto isn't going to break your team. If he catches fire, he will surely help. If you want to play it safe and not add him, that's up to you. Any player you pick up could result in exactly what you said, but not all of them have the talent that Soto has. It's quite simple. Carry on.

    Soto is from a different country bro. How could he be the next big thing without the American media hype machine behind him? Did the Dominican Republic Sports Illustrated not feature him enough? Or does he not have cool enough hair, bro? And with that logic Todd Van Poppel should’ve been the best ever because, hype.

    No. Saves are more than just saves. Saves give my life meaning. They are the reason why I get up in the morning, go to my crappy job, and not walk out in front of a car after my shift. I need the money to pay for my MLB.tv, and my life to watch every 7-9th inning of every game so I know everything there is to know about closers and saves. #SavesAreMyLife #ILoveSaves #IWantToMarryCraigKimbrel #EdwinDiazIsTheNewMagnifico

    Thx for the invite but too early for me to have strong opinions about players to take now. I'm still trying to process why my methodology made me such a believer in Kenny Britt last season.
