  1. Team switch - not so much. He stays in the same league, and aside from Greinke he doesn't have to worry much about dealing with the team he left. Decline - yeah. Only to the extent I'll take Freeman above him though. He is still an elite option @ 1B imo. I could see myself taking Hoskins over him because of the OF eligibility in Y! but Goldy is never around late enough for me to have to make that decision.
  2. LMAO Dylan Bundy gave up four runs in five innings Thursday in a no-decision against the Twins. Bundy was facing the 'B' team today, as the Twins didn't bring a single likely regular on the road trip. Those hoping for a rebound from Bundy have been giving nothing to be optimistic about this spring; he's allowed 14 runs and 22 hits in 11 2/3 innings. Mar 14, 2019, 3:15 PM
  3. You kind of get that idea since they're trying to shoehorn him in at 2nd. I don't have an answer to this - just speculation: why did they go out and pay him (albeit a 1-year deal) if he's a platoon player.
  4. I'm inclined to agree with this but it's impossible to really quantify these types of things. Any answer given has to take into account what I think will be an overall bump in his production moving to this potent MIL lineup. I think it will be a moot point anyway - at least his being there full-time. Overall I'm more excited about what Moose can do this year than any of the last 5 years at least.
  5. This is a good subject to get the pre-season angst out - all we're doing is sitting around waiting at this point. The only issue is should AVG be a default setting. I'd prefer it wasn't. We all know Y! will never change.
  6. I understood his post to mean that Y!'s default should be changed to OBP rather than avg because many commissioners just stick with the default without giving a second thought to changing anything about it. I agree OBP is a helluva lot better because it's simply a better way of quantifying what's happening on the field. Ultimately though most of us posting here couldn't care less because I imagine most people posting on a FBB forum play in custom leagues anyway. I personally think OPS reigns supreme over either AVG or OBP because that captures the whole picture imo. I doubt Y! will ever change their defaults though because they're trying to capture the largest number of people using their site and most novices of course prefer AVG because that's what's used in the game and they're familiar with what it means. The bottom line remains the same though - the best way to find a league with the settings you think are best is to start your own custom league, which is precisely what I and many already do anyway.
  7. Did he get dinged or something - Y! has him as DTD. In the past they've done that and then it disappeared, but other times it turns out an injury occurred no one knew about.
  8. I've been watching this Voit/Bird ping-pong for a few pages now and have come to a conclusion: there is no answer. Currently Voit is an endgame pick in Y! 12-team drafts. I'll take him at his low price - not touching Bird at any price. Until we know more (which inevitably we will) I'm not very excited about this situation and will pretty much stay away.
  9. In 12-team leagues he has to be at least an end-game option as a SP5/6 imo. His K/9 makes it so, and he's going to get the innings to likely bag 200+ Ks. That's not chicken feed - particularly in roto settings.
  10. So I guess that's it? "Thanks for the feedback but nothing is going to change." Got it.
  11. He's still going pretty high even with his faceplant last yr - higher than I'm willing to spend for a C. I don't see a discount happening at all having done several Y! 12-team mocks. Without a discount after last year's disaster no thanks.
  12. Yeah he's healthy "now". He's had over 500 ABs in a season once 2016 - when he was healthy all year w/151 GP, and that's as a "regular" the last 5 years. That is certainly baked somewhat into his reasonable current ADP I realize. I am definitely a Turner fan - he is an extremely productive asset when he's right. And I will definitely draft him if he falls even further, but he is not a targeted player of mine going into this year's draft. I'll take him as a plan B or C in other words.
  13. It's too bad but this dude just fell off a cliff once it looked like he was going to be a dependable, underrated source of stats for at least 5 more years. I "splurged" on him with a 14th round pick last year and got burned because of his injury issues- this could be the end of the road unfortunately.
  14. Hell yeah. He's capable of it. I love how hated he is.
  15. He could be the "enforcer with 6 fouls to-give guy". I'm calling Pistons - Laimbeer 2.0. Might give me a reason to watch that pathetic league.
  16. Rockies sign Black to an extension - they like this stuff.
  17. He's dirt cheap in Y! 12-team standard mocks - anywhere from 18-23rd round. He's not in my draft plans but he's worth that price as a bench bat. Aside from Hosmer's season his 2018 was a non-stop parade of suck.
  18. If I was his agent I'd refuse to continue representing him until he agrees in writing to allow himself to be "babysat" by an individual of my choice - at his expense. If he doesn't agree it's an easy walk for me.
  19. It all comes down to the enlarged excerpt there. It's hard to imagine how he could have been worse last year. If he fancies himself a power hitter that's bonehead. It's hard to correct bonehead. If he doesn't adjust his approach he won't be "starting CF" for long - I'm extremely skeptical and would not draft if I drafted tonight. His skills are sick though so I could be swayed - will be tracking him this spring for sure.
  20. If the season had ended at end of July/early August he would have had a thread by now. He predictably lost some steam the last couple months (he'd never pitched more than 105 innings in a season) although he did have a couple solid outings the last couple months on his way to 180 IP. In a 12-team league his K-upside (0.9 K/IP career) makes him a legit SP4-5. He's not going to get a lot of wins (only 9 last year in 30 starts) but he showed well in his first legit shot last year with decent (non-damaging) ratios to go w/those Ks. Considering his age, it's an open question whether we've seen the best of him. He could be a late-bloomer - in which case he's a massive value - he's going 15th-16th round in 12-team mocks.
  21. He's a buy for sure imo if he drops far enough - I do agree with Cmilne above that lack of wins docks him (I play QS). For what it's worth on that point, Y! projects him for 14 wins, which is admittedly modest but it also won't kill you particularly in H2H. In 12-team (NON-auction) mocks where I simply can't pass up hitting in the top 3 rounds I will take Greinke as my #1 in the 4th-5th (37-60 overall) range. He's been impressive since 2016 when I thought we might be seeing the end coming. He's a worthy #1 if you're content to wait on pitching imo.
  22. In 12-team Y! mocks he is off the board by the middle of the 5th round consistently. I think that's pretty reasonable if you've waited at 2B/SS to that point. I'll certainly take him there depending on how my draft's gone to that point. Y! projections: 73 R, 24 HR, 88 RBI, 12 SB, 139 K .817 OPS in 526 AB. Those are modest improvements over last year's numbers in 431 ABs (e.g. he hit 24 homers last yr, he had 77 RBI in nearly 100 fewer ABs), and pretty doggone handy at either 2B or SS.
  23. No one has said it so I will: He was a** last year. Unforgivably bad. Is he better than he showed last year? Yes Did he reveal himself to be capable of a worthless season, considering mixed results in KC? Yes
