  1. Urias is Coming from a Urias owner. Biased much? I could have Giolito if I want, as he sits on my wire. So there is zero bias. Urias has the best arm in the minors. IMO
  2. He means for this year only
  3. Just before he went on the DL, most on here, were saying he was "raking". LOL. He is somewhere in between being a bust and raking.
  4. http://www.nj.com/yankees/index.ssf/2016/05/why_yankees_jorge_mateo_changing_positions_makes_s.html
  5. They also have Didi who is still young and plays a very good defense
  6. I don't think we are, necessarily, disagreeing here. I said "worthless" as a stand alone (or that's what I meant to say). Combined with other variables, like exit velo and LD%, then BABIP could be a valuable predictor.
  7. so 2015 was a very lucky season, you are saying? Well 2015 is the largest single season sample size. What direction do you think 2016 is headed ? 2014 285 PA .326 2015 322 PA .385 2016 120 PA .243 I was mocking his post if .243 is too low, then .385 was too high. Like a previous poster said, BABIP is worthless. I don't know why BABIP and WAR are ever brought up on fantasy sites. BABIP, alone, could just mean he isn't hitting enough LD's (combining LD% and BABIP could have some merit), WAR can maybe predict a players playing time, that's about it You really have to watch the games to see if a player has been unlucky or not. Not look at BABIP
  8. so 2015 was a very lucky season, you are saying?
  9. I'm talking in general. BABIP is meaningless. Case by case it could mean something. In general, it's meaningless. so tomorrow he hits 4 balls all for singles. Does that mean he was lucky? Dumb, meaningless stat. I pay zero attention, and I do quite well, thank you. Unless your league counts BABIP? WAR is most meaningless, for fantasy. BABIP might be second
  10. But he isn't mashing at AAA. LOL Aside from Batting Average, he is. His low BA is fueled by a career low BABIP. He's closer to "mashing" than he is to "struggling". I never said he was struggling. He isn't mashing either. K's are pretty bad too, along with BA. He is doing well. No need to rush up. He is a super 2 call up, at the earliest. He is in the PCL, none of his stats really stand out. .339/.480/.819. not great for PCL. 16 walks in 26 games is really top 10? Seems really odd. Saying his stats are "top 10" doesn't really scream a call up to me. He seems to need a little more seasoning. BABIP is one of the most meaningless stats. To me it means he isn't hitting the ball hard enough
  11. Mateo hit his 4th HR and 5th triple of the year tonight. Batting .374 at the moment. I think I might be in love! I hope you have about 2 years of stash ability in your league
  12. Did it say how long he'll be working on it? 10 days to 2 weeks, if all goes to plan. I doubt this affects Reed all that much. Plan is to use Gattis as a backup C or as a 50/50 split, at best. Reed will be up after super 2, as most have suggested. As long as his hitting progresses. It only makes too much sense at this point
  13. But he isn't mashing at AAA. LOL
  14. They mi They have to do something, before the season gets away from them
  15. hahah, classic Thanks for the constructive response. I thought this was an information thread. I guess it's just snarky response after snarky response, except for Brock, thanks for the info. that's because your post was ridiculous. 3 starts and 11 plus innings with a sub 2.5 ERA? 13 hits in 11 plus innings isn't "brutal" 2.31 ERA is certainly not "brutal". The 9 K's are not "brutal". Just the 8 walks are. Like I said. C'mon man.
  16. just his walks are brutal. R E L A X
  17. no doubt. for just this year. Over/under is mid-season. They were in it last year and it took an injury for them to bring up a better prospect with even less in his way. So yes, path needs to be unobstructed
  18. There was a clear path for Correa, especially when Lowrie GOT HURT!!!! lol. He needs an injury or a severe slump by White or Gattis to get the call
  19. I vaguely remember you stating last season that severino wouldn't get the call until the middle of this year. Stop being a pessimist Mid year meaning 2016. U were a year offSeverino got the call mid year. lol. He came up August 5th. That's sometime after mid year. I expect Reed up sooner than later. I'm just saying that it is not a foregone conclusion. no, I think I said a 2015 September call up, but then the yanks did nothing at the deadline
  20. If you have roster space get him. No one better. IMO it's him or Giolito. I carried both for a week, but then injuries started happening. I would love to grab Reed again
  21. I'm going to say barring injury to Reed, I'd be shocked if he wasn't up much sooner than September. Would not be surprised with next month either. Reed is more athletic than White. White is a little fat boy. Reed will not be the DH, he will be the 1b.. If White is deemed a better hitter than Gattis, White will be taking Gattis job. The 1b job is Reed's. The fact that they are considering Gattis at catcher (which they are) speeks volumes to how they view everyone. It really shows to me they are already figuring in Reed into the equation. Reading between the lines. FYI I do agree with you.
  22. I vaguely remember you stating last season that severino wouldn't get the call until the middle of this year. Stop being a pessimist Severino got the call mid year. lol. He came up August 5th. That's sometime after mid year. I expect Reed up sooner than later. I'm just saying that it is not a foregone conclusion.
  23. I really don't see Gattis as the #1 C this year. In fact, I would be totally shocked. I can see Reed taking either Gattis' DH job or White's 1B job, away, at some point this year. It's not a foregone conclusion, though. Without an injury, it's quite possible, he doesn't come up until September.
