  1. Bird's ADP this year is a late round flier which could pay off nicely. If he stinks or doesn't play, just drop. His potential is still there.
  2. If you draft Voit, it's a good idea to grab Bird late and hold both for a few weeks. Whoever gets the job will have good value. I thought Cashman was just trying to boost Bird's value for trade purposes, but I think he loves the lefty Bird's potential in that lineup.
  3. CBS - $200 - Standard 5x5 Roto/Mixed/Re-Draft/Snake/LeagueSafe/Daily Moves We currently need three replacement owners Draft Date: Probably last week in March - online on CBS League Name: Joe Mac Roto League League was formed in the 1990's and has evolved into an On-Line league, mostly East Coast based. Only a couple of the original guys remain, some really good new owners. Very competitive league and teams stay involved all year. 2-C's, 5-OF's, 9-P's, 1-1B, 1-2B, 1-3B, 1-SS, 1-MI, 1-CI, 1-U and 5-reserve players at any position, for a total of 28 players. 3 D.L. spots if a player on your roster gets placed on the D.L. Standard 5x5 Categories: (HR) (RBI) (R's) (AVG) (SB) and (W) (S) (ERA) (K) (WHIP) Lineups may be set daily for each player up to 5 minutes before the starting time for each game. CBS decides position eligibility but basically 20 games played last year, and 10 games for the current year. Waivers runs once a week, overnight on Wednesday into Thursday morning. The waiver order resets after each weeks' games in reverse order of standings. Each team gets 5 Super Free Agent moves for the year, and can pick up any player any day, any time except on Wednesday night - waiver night, SFA moves must be posted by 8:00 p.m. so Commissioner can process before waivers run at midnight. These moves prevent the last place team from always securing the first pick each week during waivers and adds a little strategy when to best use them. Can be used to pick up the hot new RP or prospect before somebody else, but only 5 in total for the year. Team owners are required to keep their rosters LEGAL after making any moves. Illegal rosters will earn zero points each day any teams roster is not Legal, as determined by CBS. Payouts : 1st place - 50% $1,125.00 2nd place - 30% $675.00 3rd place - 15% $337.50 4th Place - 5% $112.50 12 Teams at $200 = $2400 minus $150 to CBS for the website $2250 paid out to the winners You need to register and create a user name and password if you don't already have one with CBS Any questions you can post in this thread or contact me for an invitation at:
  4. I would too but the Cano deal was more nuanced than that. We got Edwin Diaz for Kelenic and Dunn because we also did Cano for dumping Jay Bruce and Anthony Swarzak's money. Edwin Diaz was a huge acquisition for team with a gigantic hole in the bullpen. I think Familia was a nice addition as a setup guy as well. I think I'm sensing you just have a different strategy for building a team the way you believe it should be done which would have more of a long term strategy. Brodie has made it clear his strategy is to build for the short term and support his three big starters. I think we are all used to keeping an eye on the long term but I can't say BVW's goal for this year will not be achieved until the season is done. I also don't know what other moves he is contemplating at the trade deadline if things are going as planned or going like crap.
  5. But that's what Major League teams do when planning for the season. They look at what guys have done combined with what they've done in the minors. Jeff McNeil never show'd any power until last year. Don't know if it's a natural progression or an outlier. The rest of his profile is excellent. I don't know why you think he can't get more AB's if he's killing it early in the season. Teams can adjust.
  6. Brodie might be a complete bust in the end because of his going all in this season with older players with no vision for a longer term plan. But I think we need to see how the team does this year and what other moves are made. I think he is trying to maximize the teams potential with a starting rotation that is in the top echelon this year. I just think it's also funny to see people get crazy about a team trying to compete for the playoffs this year and having a younger player with only 225 major league AB's not given a full time spot to start the season being a completely mystical thing. I don't think the team will hesitate to sit Alonso if he struggles and I don't think it will ruin his future either.
  7. Career's ruined if he doesn't play everyday this season and probably never will. Again, an overreaction for a guy with 225 major league at bats.
  8. Look I love Jeff McNeil and if I were making the decisions I would agree with you and play him full time at 2B. But BVW did the Cano/Diaz deal which while interesting and clearly upgrades the team this year isn't something I would have done. I could think of different ways to spend the Wilpon's money but there's no guarantee it would be better than what BVW is putting out there this year. Clearly the Wilpon's have given him a limit to how much money he can spend this year, which is sad for a big market NYC team, but another discussion. BVW is filling out the roster the way he thinks will give the team the best chance to compete this year. Maybe he is delusional but he's trying. This Mets team will compete with the talent assembled but I don't think it will be enough to beat the Nats whose starting pitching is also excellent. McNeil was a 12th round draft choice who has exceeded all expectations at every level. He turns 27 in April and is a very versatile and athletic player. I think it is an overreaction to think he will be an elite hitter based on last season's limited number of AB's. And there is nothing to stop the team from giving Jeff McNeil more AB's if he does hit like last year.
