  1. My mind is completely blown by the fact that anybody would be in favor of getting less calls right. I dont get it... The goal should be to get things right and follow the rule book.
  2. Aaron Judge 2017 Outlook

    Since 09/01 he's .240/.418/.660 with 6 HR and 1 SB, good for a wRC+ of 173. K's are still a concern at 31%, but with a BB rate north of 20%, it's at least palatable. Sept. has been a nice rebound after the rough August.
  3. Shohei Otani - SP/OF Japan

    not sure.. i'll look when i get home.
  4. Shohei Otani - SP/OF Japan

    ESPN will add him when the player pool resets, typically early next year. Fantrax has him now. Yahoo and CBS, no idea.
  5. Shohei Otani - SP/OF Japan

    So my next question is how long is he arbitration eligible? Three years? BTW, thx for replying to my question.
  6. Shohei Otani - SP/OF Japan

    someone please make sure i'm understanding this correctly. when we say he's giving up hundreds of millions of dollars, that's in japan, correct? by staying in japan he could sign a big contract for the next couple of years, but instead it appears he's going to take a few million (or whatever) to sign with a U.S. team.

    Willie Calhoun...
  8. AJ Pollock 2017 season outlook

    he only played in 12 MLB games in 2016. in 2015 he hit .315 over a full season of games. not sure you can glean anything from 2016 other than he was injured.
  9. Tommy Pham 2017 Outlook

    this is my fear.. what kind of long lasting affects could we have here. we knew he had issues, but i thought they were mostly mitigated by his new contacts. i hate it for him, he has a lot of talent, but this is probably why he hasn't been successful until now, and this could prevent him from being successful in the future.

    I thought this was a pretty handy topic last season.. who are the must own handcuffs? I like Jonathan Williams, DMC, and maybe james conner?

    And then there's this: Darvish becomes fastest pitcher in MLB history to 1,000 Ks Michael Bradburn Sep 8, 2017 22:59

    lol what the hell...
  13. Tyler Lockett 2017 Season Outlook

    I think the over and down only really applies to the RB position because there are four of them. I question the whole over and down thing since Carson is #4 while some other dude I've never heard of is #3, but whatever.
  14. Tyler Lockett 2017 Season Outlook

    Well you see, Russell Wilson is the starter and Austin Davis is the #2. Lockett is listed on the same line as Davis. This same logic follows suit everywhere. Are you implying that Lockett is the #2, but not listed with the starters?
  15. Tyler Lockett 2017 Season Outlook

    Not sure if serious or not.. are you saying the #2 isn't listed with the starters?
  16. Tyler Lockett 2017 Season Outlook

    Listed with the backups while Richardson is listed as the starter opposite Baldwin. Concerns?
  17. Phillip Dorsett 2017 Season Outlook

    This is the truth, and also the approach we need to take with dorsett in fantasy. Grab him for his potential and dump him if/when he doesn't capitalize on the opportunity.
  18. Chris Carson 2017 Season Outlook

    This is utterly confusing.. we say Lacy is no good at football, and to prove it we take his stats from last season and average them without the good runs. of course his stats will look worse when you remove the best results. What would his stats say if you took out the poor runs that were the result of bad run blocking and missed assignments? Shouldn't we look at both sides of the coin? I'm not a Lacy fan, in fact I dont own him anywhere, but this exercise seems like a bad way to judge his capabilities.
  19. Danny Salazar 2017 Outlook

    lol thank goodness I dropped e-rod and his short outings and high ERA for the more studly Salazar.
  20. Austin Hays OF BAL

    I don't know much about him other than his stats and this thread.. but scouting the stat line it appears he has the potential to be a high avg outfielder with good power. The prospect reports all seem to have him at 50-55 speed, but it doesn't seem to have shown up yet. I'll completely pull it out of thin air and guess prime potential of 290/330 with 25 hr & 10 sb. In my mind I'm comping to David peralta with little a more power. Not sure if hays has split concerns. Again, that's just stat line scouting. Feel free to offer up more seasoned projections..

  22. Forrest Whitley - RHP HOU

    It seems odd to me that they have been having him bounce back and forth between starting and relieving. I dont remember any other teams using this approach. Anyone got insight?
  23. Aaron Judge 2017 Outlook

    Predicting a guy with a 425+ babip is going to regress is akin to predicting it will rain one day in the future.. If someone could provide an analysis based on judge's minor league track record plus his recent plate dicipline advances I would be very interested.
  24. Aaron Judge 2017 Outlook

    There was a point originally made that seems to have bypassed multiple posters: All batters, even super cerebral guys who take tons of walks and choke up to take whatever a pitcher gives them, have bad months. Nobody is comparing Judge to Votto specifically.. C'mon guys
  25. 2017 "Sleeper" Prospects

    I see they still have devers ranked #2, do they typically wait until players reach/exceed prospect eligibility before removing from the list?
