    Didn’t keep up with his night-life: is Harvey more of a Miller Lite or a Coors Lite guy?

    Let's forget the arbitration talk with Fry. He's not arbitration eligible until 2021. Are they going to avoid saves with him until 2021? If they made him the closer today, what are the odds he's still a closer by 2021? And even if he is, are 7 saves in 2018 really going to affect his arb value 3 years from now?

    I actually like the Hamels deal. His home/road splits are indicative of a fly ball pitcher who can't deal with Globe Life park. 6.41 ERA at home, 2.93 on the road. 2.44 HR/9 at home, 1.14 HR/9 on the road. Wrigley's park factor for HR is basically neutral, and highly dependent on the luck of how the wind is blowing that day, but should balance out to be a much better place to pitch half of his remaining games. Combine that with the human factor of moving from a going-nowhere team to a playoff-bound team, and I'm willing to pay the almost nothing it will cost to acquire him.

    How in hell was he subpar last year? Hit .295 with 29 homers. He was ranked the 3rd best 3B with only Arendo and Jose Ramirez ranked higher in standard fantasy leagues. Yeah give me that "subpar" performance anytime, thank you. This year he has been playing through some injury for some time it seems. Amazing the hyperbole on this site.

    Soto is a stud plain and simple! Love having the kid in my dynasty. Really wish this thread would turn back into the fun ride it used to be. Kid is 19 and doing unprecedented things! As Colio says.... Hey, come on, come along take a ride There's a party over there, that ain't no jive It's live, live, it's all the way live Don't even have to walk, don't even have to drive…

    [Going to ask folks to dial back the temperature here and focus the discussion on items relevant to Gordon's fantasy outlook. The bar is going to be especially high in this thread given how much of a magnet it is for off-topic soapboxing and bickering. Consider this your one and only courtesy warning.]

    Is that a 10 team league? In a 12 team, I have never seen Brown fall to 8 and Hopkins very rarely. Allen is almost always a first rounder or very early 2nd. And Evans is gone well before the 3.8 I like the idea but I don't think it's realistic to have that receiver group you posted.

    I actually think Moose makes more sense as he can fill in immediately at DH and also give insurance in the case Bird falters again or Andujar hits a wall. At very worst he can form a platoon with Andujar at 3B.

    I don’t really buy into these sorts of arguments. These are grown men who play ball for a living. With a few notable exceptions I assume that they’re playing to the maximum of their effort all the time. You’re saying Draymond looked disengaged but perhaps he was tired or otherwise giving full effort and he wasn’t a part of the rotation. Granted DMC will not play all of the time and he’s out for a part for the season early anyway. That said, draymond was just a third round value last season so to expect him to be better than that is very unrealistic imo. I thought about taking him on the wheel of the 2nd/3rd in our mock but couldn’t pull the trigger. I think if people draft him early this year they will be disappointed.

    Wow..whole lotta 1st grade bickering... doesn't anyone care about Josh's anxiety? White cloud approves of his absence. Nothing new there. If he's maintaining his mental health for an additional two weeks.. whatevs...come week 3 of preseason & wk1 of regular season I'll check back on Flash....ohh and the Dez chatter..what tm is seriously not thought about him? It's all on Dez to put his ego aside and if he wants to throw up the X ...well beggers can't be choosers

    The key is "EVICTION" and "LAWSUIT" ... she was UNWILLING to leave... he was in a different state. He told her to leave multiple times and filed charges when she didn't. Then on the week she was due to appear... She gets attacked and she blames Shady without any real proof? ... At this point, without evidence, it's a big 'he-said/she-said' thing. Innocent until proven guilty. Yet some here love: Guilty until proven Innocent. Yeah... I don't think McCoy had anything to do with it. Nor does the evidence suggest otherwise... Therefore the 'facts' proving ms. cordon's claims are simply hearsay until proven truthful. No Court or DA will try to charge him without actual evidence that ensures them a conviction.

    So apparently the victim posted pictures of the jewelry on her public Instagram at one point. The attacker came into the home, beat her and asked for that jewelry. She said it was in a safety deposit box so the attacker took a few bracelets she had on her and bugged out. The more and more I read about this the more I'm convinced it was a 3rd party. Doesn't make any sense that McCoy would send someone to beat her and steal the jewelry when he had a lawsuit against her for eviction and return of property and a court setting that very same week. Furthermore, he called the cops on her in July 2017 reporting that he was afraid she was going to steal items from the home and falsely accuse him of doing something to her to ruin his career (assuming this was after an argument or breakup and she threatened self-harm to set him up). Also... even if he did have something to do with it, they're going to have to find the attacker and establish a connection to Shady. At the moment they have no leads on who attacked the ex-GF. I doubt that the state is going to spend that much time and effort on a non-homicide case. Unless some evidence materializes I don't think this is going anywhere. We'll see how it all shakes down but I doubt the commissioner is going to punish McCoy b/c some unidentified 3rd party robbed his ex-GF.

    agreed, although this build is always susceptible to losses against guard heavy punt fg%/to teams who will have a chance to win Pts, 3pm, assists, steals, and ft%. Of course to combat that the path of least resistance is to focus on steals.

    Another name for you guys today, 19-year-old Deivi Garcia who is a SP in the Yankees organization that I think he deserves some attention for the impressive season that he's put together to date. In a Yankees minor league system that is loaded with pitching, talents like Deivi Garcia can get lost in the shuffle and I think that is perhaps why he's not getting a lot of attention. Very quietly, he's been one of the better pitchers in the South Atlantic League and that continued this week in a 6 inning performance in which he struck out 12 against 0 walks, and allowed just 2 hits and 0 earned runs. That performance pushed Garcia's season ERA down to 2.97 over 39.1 innings pitched, and he has racked up a super impressive 63:11 strikeout to walk ratio along the way. His 16.3% swinging-strike rate in the South Atlantic League is elite and would rank among the league leaders if he had enough innings to qualify. Note that his FIP and xFIP are both below his actual ERA and suggest that he's been unlucky to date. Looking at his repertoire, he's got a fastball that hits the mid-90's and a plus curveball that has really impressive depth and consistently tumbles down below the hitter's bat. Both of which are also known as very high spin rate offerings! He also has a changeup with good fade and most project a 45/50 on it which is plenty with his dominant fastball/curveball combo. Remember that he's just 19 too, so there's lots of time to improve upon that changeup. Reports from the spring suggested below-average to poor command with Eric Longenhagen saying "he's got at best 30-control right now," but I think that's old news as his 11 walks in 39.1 innings pitched this year and 19 walks in 60 innings last year suggest that he has no issues throwing strikes. The only concern I really have for him is his build as he's listed at just 5 foot 10 and 163 lbs. That's both short and slight, and rightly or wrongly, it will give pause to evaluators projecting 200+ innings going forward. Regardless, he's got tons of talent and he's in a system that seems to be able to develop pitching well. A solid 3 pitch mix including 2 plus pitches gives him a strong floor and ceiling and overall, his combination of swing and miss stuff along with solid control has him in a position to rise up prospect rankings going forward. He should be on your radars in deeper dynasty leagues for sure!

    Just for clarification I don’t remember being in any mocks last year. And yes - same with hoopking, I’m from Manila. Anyway, definitely looking forward to how things shake out. July is definitely an empty month for fantasy basketball - after the summer league as is. This summer mock is the one of the best things on the net about FBB and am interested to know the punting strats executed. Exciting to see a punt assist team because that is my go to strat but curious to see how a punt FG%/TO also as I have yet to pull that off successfully.

    Hasen't baseball already been losing fans in the stands because of this over-obsession with re-building? Yeah it works from a practical stand point. Nats wouldn't get some big name prospects from Herrea, Gio and Murphy anyway. Seems we care more about giant organizations making profit than a watchable/entertaining team. This is suppose for our entertainment. You realize how many fans will probably stop going if they trade Harper now? Is this what a modern day baseball fan is about? The whole reason Juan Soto was pushed to the Majors so early was because they were all in on this before Harper hit FA. SO they tell the fanbase. "We are giving up because we are 5 games back with 2 months to go" Baseball doesn't have many marketable faces that have a major impact on the Fans. Harper is absolutely one of them though. He is worth more keeping around, then what he would get as a rental IMO.

    I’m pretty low on draymond this year. I think cousins impacts his value. His points won’t go down as they couldn’t get go any lower and his stocks shouldn’t go down as that’s largely a matter of defensive effort/skill. But cousins is a great rebounder and passer from the post. Whatever draymond does in that regard cousins does better. So I could see draymond going down to 10/6/6/1.3/1.3/1.3. He was already below the median in all three efficiency cats. That means he would be below the median in the three efficiency cats and points. At or slightly above median in rebounds and threes. And only above in stocks and assists. By my estimation that would put him around 50-60 in the player rater. He already fell to mid 30s in the rater last year. It may be a shock to see him outside the top 50 but that’s my fear. His career arch has been fascinating. From no expectations to being a second round player to falling the past two years, not due to a decline in skill or age, but because he sacrificed for a championship squad. When cousins doesn’t play he should retain his typical value though.

    He's actually been rosterable for deep leagues lately. Maybe he's finally, slowly making some progress. The Mets have been sticking him at leadoff. Last 23 games (30 days): 11R, 6RBI, 4SB, .275 avg

    First of all, I didn't wish anything on anyone. Whatever happened with him today has already happened. Secondly, better get your sarcasm detector checked. Thirdly, Mrs. Lamb, you probably shouldn't be in this thread if you're expecting kudos for your son's performance so far this season.
