  1. Mookie Betts 2018 Outlook

    I'd say he's closer to .300 than .330, but yeah should be a .300 hitter. JoRam, Trout,Betts... Can't go wrong. Splitting hairs really.

    1 or 2, doesn't even matter. Like you're not making the wrong choice with Trout or Betts at 1, but Betts will probably get you more RBI or R just based on lineup. Also I'm more likely to believe Trout hitting 30+HR than Betts. So I guess it's whatever you want.

    Oh man, sorry if I came across disagreeing! I actually fully agree with you, thought it was a well made point. Corbin - like you said - is likely out of reach, but who knows what 3 years does?

    Same place as always, eating crow.

    Well Corbin is 3 years older, was a 2nd round pick, and had a K/9 rate in the 8s until this year. Since May 11th, which is when Tailon added his new pitch, the kid is sitting at: 141IP, 137SO, 8.72K/9 with a 2.93ERA. As far as being hittable goes, you're bang on. But I think that has a lot to do with age and figuring things out (remember, still 26, was a 2nd overall pick, added a new pitch which changed him immensely, had a 3.38ERA in his debut year). He's 100% a top 20 pitcher next year, and I could see him finishing in the top 15 if he keeps it up. Nola and Corbin are guys I like, but I think a Nola comp is more appropriate as to what Tailon will/could become (although Nola's BABIP scares the crap out of me). In the end if you miss out on Nola and Corbin and get Tailon as a consolation prize, I think you'll be pumped. Hot take for 2019: 209IP, 195Ks, 3.25ERA with a WHIP of 1.10, bad record (something like 11-11 or whatever) but everything else is great.

    So so glad I ate crow for breakfast, Dude has been a monster this year. I never thought I'd see him hit 30HR unless he was in Coors. Unreal.

    Since May 11th (when he added his slider): 10-6, 127IP, 122SO, 8.62K/9, 2.05BB/9, 3.11ERA

    Misunderstood. Thought you meant he wasn't going to give it his 100%.
  12. Jose Abreu 2018 Outlook

    Has he ever had something to play for?

    I suck at FBB so I start everyone in the playoffs. H2H RIP my season.
  14. Moves that made or broke you this year?

    The good: Moved Kershaw for Betts Moved Kluber for Machado Moved Calhoun/Mejia/Skaggs for Price and Arriera Added Cano Added Treinen Added Holland The bad: Dropped Foltynewicz Dropped Freeland Been a really solid year. H2H though, so could crash down any time.

    He's gotta be NL MVP if they make the playoffs, right?
