    He must be yelling ‘ball’ before he throws each pitch.

    Oh crap this Rotoworld forums platform just turned the headings into light peacock blue. My eyes are burning trying to read this stuff. Help! Is there a way to go back to old school with heading for threads you can read in like BLACK????

    For anyone that hates watching videos for 2 minutes and would rather read for 10 seconds; bud black says "umm" about 1000 times and basically says that hampson and macmahon are trying hard.

    With minor league Opening Day here, this thread is for providing updates on a daily basis of how prospects performed around the minors. If there are prospects that you are following, feel free to post how they hit or pitch in a game. John Sickels' Minor League Ball did one of these threads for at least a dozen years, but that site was discontinued over the winter.

    Buxton is like a Thursday night with the boys. You know you got work in the morning, you tell yourself eh I'll just have a pint, quick snack... 3 hours later you're 2 shots and 5 pints deep throwing your buddy in the bushes for fun. Buxton has contact issues, inconsistent approach, hasn't shown us much, and we say we're not interested... but by the end of spring all you see is the athleticism, the past hype, and thought it could magically be the year and we'll probably invest more than we should. Why? Because it will be fun as hell... and Shin Soo Choo will be our AM Tylonol.

    On the royals broadcast recently, they were talking about how he gives himself a "hit" for things like a productive out, 8+ pitch AB, certain statcast measurements, in addition to his normal hits, and keeps track of it in a spreadsheet. His goal is to hit over 0.500 on the year given those criteria.

    That time of year, folks. Bold Predictions Year in Review There's tons of predictions, can't get 'em all. Generally gonna avoid if it's more Real than Fantasy NFL. Winners of the Thread Worst to first in a tough division. Great call. Adams was actually top 2. Lockett WR11 overall. Mahomes smoked it. Just ignore my other predictions. This guy was the first to predict Mahomes as the QB1. Even bolder, and it's looking likely. Honestly, it was trending that way till he got hurt. Early 2nd round ADP turned into a top 3 RB. Note the timestamp. Good stuff. SadFaceHappy made 11 predictions and got 6 right. Excellent efficiency. Some of these aren't incredibly bold, but great work nonetheless. Kamara Faulk 2.0 confirmed. Zeke 50+ and 2,000+ confirmed. Missed the TDs though. Bell outside top 6 -- lol Morris was there for a time, and I think you predicted this before he even joined the team. NE is absolutely morphed into a run-centric team. Henry is over 1k yards confirmed. Credit where it's due! The award for the biggest winner goes to @The_Truth_Returns! A couple of these predictions were more "in the right direction" than "true", but a couple were pure nostradamus. Truth Returns did one for every team, and missed his fair share. But here were some really good ones, almost eerily right. Reich was a blessing for Luck. Texans aren't the #1 seed in the AFC, but he came right back in. Wentz took a big step backwards this year, though Ertz was not the TE1. TBD on playoff status. Golladay takeover confirmed. Carson alpha dog confirmed. Rams 3 wins, Rosen 10TD to 14NT, and he took over in week 5. All pretty damn close. On the right track, but not quite. Participation trophies. Actually because of bad kicking. Right idea, wrong AFC South team! Evans had a damn good year but not WR3. Besides that, spot on, Flash. In the post-season, sure! 754 yds and 4 TDs ... pretty spot on! WR39 on the year. Take a walk. Losers. Christian who? Not sure that this wasn't sarcasm. Ooooooh..... Sooorey..... Five strikes, you're out. RIP. Both Freemans combined for 79.1 standard points, approximately 200 less than Saquon Barkley. Gohawks was on it, though: What a pathetic loser this poster is. dmb going for insane instead of bold. And the award for the biggest loser goes to.... @mrblonde1984! You made a prediction for every single team... and 30 out of 32 were wrong. Not particularly close either. A couple right ones... 1: Thompson did have more points than Guice, but only because of injury 2: Moore did have more points than Funchess, altho I'd argue that wasn't too bold. These topics certainly are fun to look back on to see just how wrong we are

    Just grabbed him. What’s the lowdown? Is he a pitcher or a hitter?

    In 2017 he gave up 2HR once and never 3. In 2018 he never gave up more than 1. Guess we have different definitions of "very prone".

    Just... no. That's freaking nonsense. This thread shouldn't exist. I'm going to get too angry with bad opinions. Because the idea that "beaning" should be acceptable in any sport is asinine. People ask me why I take this seriously and I'll be upfront here since this thread exists and then I'll probably dip out: Because I'm 23. And I love baseball. And I want to lvoe baseball for the next fifty years. But you know what? This sport needs to make sure that it isn't dwindling even more than it is now. People have more alternatives than they ever have before. ESPORTS. You don't ahve to like them, but that alone should shoot fear into the veins of any long-term baseball fan. "Old School" people, I love ya, but you aren't creating NEW fans. NEW fans are all that matters. And the sport is less-approachable when it has horrendous attitudes like this one. Throwing projectiles at humans on purpose is assault. I don't care if anyone wants to try and drag me into an argument about that. I really don't. It's ******** assault. Plain and simple. No doubt. And Bat-Flips! Oh my god. how did we EVER vilify something so harshly? The Bat-Flip is the most innocuous ******** celebration in pro sports. It's a wrist flick! WHO. THE HELL. CARES? We've perverted the concept of bat flips into something that, any observer OUTSIDE of baseball, would go... "Wait... that? People are mad at that?" My roommate is a huge football and sports fan but not a baseball fan, and I love using him as a jump-off as a non-baseball fan. He cannot even comprehend the concept of this issue. It is simple to virtually everyone outside of the sport: Beaning is stupid, Bat-Flips are innocuous and... kinda cool. Amir Garrett put it the best: So anyone who faces me and hits a bomb. I expect you to admire your work lol.. but just remember when I get you back I will admire mine as well... YES! SO MUCH FREAKING YES! THIS. THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS. Like who actually likes the concept of "acting like you've been there before." That's nonsense. I want people to act like what they did was epic and fun. Did anyone pay attention to the NFL last year? Called the "No-Fun-League" for years? Finally decides to allow celebrations and guess what? IT WAS ******** AWESOME. Team celebrations were AWESOME. Turnover celebrations and TD celebrations were AWESOME. I've said it before. I don't JUST want Bat Flips. I want Grand Slams where all four batters wait to cross home plate together and do a coordinated dance accross. f--- IT. ITS FUN. GET OVER YOURSELVES. I love the Old School. But even if I *liked* that version of the game more, like I like the no-DH more, there is a reality. The game is less approachable when it is being "old school." And unless you want baseball to be the 15th most popular sport behind 9 ESports in 25 Years, you "Old School" people need to realize that sacrifices are necessary for what's good for the game, and getting new fans, and sustaining the game into the next generation. And don't a single person get me started on this bull**** about being a "role model." I better not see a single Jose Reyes or Addison Russell or Kareem Hunt in my sports then, and you better be complaining about them every day of your life if you want to tell me that I should care at all about the "Role Model" that Tim Anderson is. Please. I don't wanna make another reply, but often feel compelled to. That said. Cheers. i'm out.

    Thanks for posting this brock and appreciate the kind words. I ranked Chavis on my top 1000, but I must of missed him when I did the prospects only list. It is updated. Also, tryptamine is right that the write up and projection on Widener was better than my ranking of him. I moved him up a little bit. Thanks for the feedback guys.

    I added the 3 Centers of HOU as handcuff for Capela. My team was bad enough to have 3 streamer spots in a 16-team league. Didn't expect not even one of them would have a good enough stat line. Dang! Just wasted 3/5 Adds in the first day of the Week.

    I have no idea why Kapler continues to add elements of difficulty to the 9th inning. It's like Gabe and his family are about to take a cross country drive. However, as opposed to just dealing with your every day morons on the road, Gabe leaves with an eighth of a tank of gas, puts random strips of duct tape on the windshield, blares the soundtrack to Rocky IV, has four shots of bourbon, and throws a lit cigarette in the back seat.

    People play in various types of scoring leagues with varying roster sizes. I mean, he's only owned in ~25% of Yahoo leagues, so I feel the question is valid to the general public. How about we focus less on how "weak" people's leagues are and focus more on Soler's outlook?

    1. Don't draft players on bad teams because they'll tank and make up phantom injuries 2. Don't draft players on good teams either. Load management 3. Don't draft old players. Load management 4. Don't draft players whose names rhyme with Fanthony Mayvis and Kapie Leopard 5. Find a different hobby

    My strategy is to drink too much before the draft, then replace 75% of my roster during the season. It's paid off pretty well in the 13 years my league has been around
