  1. Michael Conforto 2018 Outlook

    Was a little surprised nobody argued this. Perhaps that says it all.
  2. Michael Conforto 2018 Outlook

    True that. But that was last year. Before shoulder surgery. My take on his value you guys can hold me to: All health equal, Markakis > Conforto in 2018

    Early but studly. On base machine, runs galore, like 1.5 steals a week. Philly has a lot of fun sports teams.

    i like to think all these PPDs aren't letting some hitters get in rhythm. But this guy's floor isn't looking as dependable anymore and there's some upside to be had on some waiver wires...

    Back issue is the new news: https://www.chron.com/sports/astros/article/Astros-A-J-Hinch-Ken-Giles-back-tightness-worse-12848136.php
  6. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    Hasn't been mentioned yet, he's got a back issue. Doesn't help the frustration but maybe a little more clarity, or not: https://www.chron.com/sports/astros/article/Astros-A-J-Hinch-Ken-Giles-back-tightness-worse-12848136.php
  7. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    I agree. And to your point, i think the further assumption based on a bunch of historical precedent is that if Soria gets traded it WON'T be as a closer unless he's filling in for a playoff team's closer injury. So I guess i meant in the near term. And yes, the manager wants to win. But the GM knows Nate Jones and his low contract is the future. If Soria pitches well (as closer) they'll try and move him. Happens every year to bad team closers. Shoot, it's happened before to Soria himself.
  8. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    No discussion around the White Sox closer role yet anywhere. Nate Jones v Joakim Soria. It's been reported as a Shared closer role since spring training but Soria got the first save opp. Assuming he'll continue to get those opps as trade bait?

    This guy's still underappreciated. FLEX GOLD
  11. Jordan Reed 2017 Season Outlook

    didn't look compromised today but think there's enough evidence showing toes get worse as the season goes on. someone in my league dropped pre week 1 when they heard "fractured toe". so i scooped him hoping for a week-3-big-game-against-the-raiders-and-trade.

    Not sure why they don't just say his name: it was Mike Lombardi. One of the brightest most experienced player development GMs, from working for Al Davis to Bill Walsh to Belichick. I forget how many super bowl rings he has. I try to listen to him wherever he goes. His insight on football is incredible and hearing him on that podcast is certainly why i clicked on this link this evening
  13. Joe Ross 2017 Season Outlook

    So we're not to believe the Nats beat writer Mark Zuckerman when he confirms it days ago? I thought we were all here to get advantageous information sooner than most people... But ok, here's more background from Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post that makes me comfortable with picking up Joe Ross in advance of a [AS YET UNCONFIRMED BY YAHOO SPORTS] start this Wednesday. If you're not swayed, that's ok because I am: Having him start on Wednesday would also give Strasburg an extra day of rest, which the Nationals always welcome. Further, Washington must recall Ross within a 20-day period if it doesn’t want to use one of his two remaining option years. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/nationals-journal/wp/2017/04/17/when-will-joe-ross-make-his-season-debut-for-the-nationals/?utm_term=.822af64ff55d
  14. Joe Ross 2017 Season Outlook

    well, yeah i know. i was responding to the guy above my post who referenced a source that still wasn't sure about Ross status this morning.
  15. Joe Ross 2017 Season Outlook

    Confirmed: http://www.cbssports.com/fantasy/baseball/news/nationals-joe-ross-set-for-season-debut/ Drafted him, dropped him, he's still there, grabbing him.
