  1. You keep hearing about diminished velocity with Greinke each spring training but he keeps putting up good numbers. Robbie Ray has that elite potential and the 10th round seems pretty good. He pitched 123.2 IP with 165 K's last year. For me, the Dodgers pitching is probably Kershaw, Buehler and Rich Hill with the last two spots between Ryu, Stripling and Urias. I think Maeda and Alex Wood start the season in the bullpen, and Urias probably has an innings limit if he gets the fifth spot. The Dodgers need the depth because they always have somebody hurt or blister problems.
  2. It was a mock draft so I think some people try different things especially in November. Not too many surprises to be honest. I wanted to see if Jose Altuve would slip to me in the middle of the 2nd rd., so I took JD Martinez over Lindor and his SB's. I think Altuve is expected to be 100% next year after his surgery. Last year he still stole 17 bags with 4 CS, to go along with 84 R's and a .316 BA. I was also targeting Villar and his SB potential and thought pick #67 in the sixth round seemed about right as long as he can hit around .260. My first tough choice was in the 3rd round when 8 SP's went in the first 26 picks, and I had to choose between Giancarlo and Clayton. Trusted Stanton more I guess. There weren't too many good OF'ers left if you waited. Once some of these free agents find new homes, these mocks will get a little more interesting and I look forward to seeing which players move the most.
  3. Tipping Pitches

    Supposedly Ross Stripling was tipping his pitches. He started getting smacked around after a brilliant start to his season. I think hitters watch so much video these days, I think they can pick up little things and of course share with teammates.

    Altuve played with a really bad knee last year. He has had surgery and is expected to be ready for spring training. I'm expecting Altuve to regain his form and put up numbers closer to what we are used to seeing maybe less SB's going forward. He's so good when healthy.

    I'm not sure how many innings Urias get this year. Dodgers probably have to build him up. I can see some bullpen later in the year for Urias.

    Maybe a little. Paxton is expected to get around $9m this year which is very cheap for a good SP. Kluber gets around $46m for the next 3 years before becoming a free agent. Also not bad. I think both players will fetch a good return.

    Paxton won't be cheap either. Probably more expensive than Kluber. He's not a free agent until 2021 and only earned $4.9m last year.

    No. Sam was in a walking boot today. Sam will play again when he is healthy.

    I think more importantly they get a catcher who the pitchers want to throw to. And that consistent contact as well.

    Of course if they switch ballparks, I would favor JT.
  11. Speed usually get drafted quick and pushes these guys up. I figured Villar wasn't going to be sitting around to much longer. He should have a green light every time with Baltimore this year. Hope he gets on enough.
  12. It was him or Stanton for me. Kershaw’s fastball has lost some zip but I still expect good numbers. Health is the thing with Clayton.

    Because Dalvin and the doctors agree he is healthy. Time to test it with limited playing time until his conditioning is better.

    Voit wasn't intimidated by his superstar teammates and looked very comfortable in that lineup. Over.
