  1. Rotoworld mock draft

    generally we do 5 OF , 9 pitchers, 1 Util.... NFBC style or ESPN Standard with one extra catcher.
  2. Giancarlo Stanton 2018 Season Outlook

    It's actually not that bad a contract. That's what he would command on the open market today, probably more. The Marlins if they trade them will easily get someone to take ALL of it and throw in a prospect or a few, I guess it could be the Giants with Heliot Ramos.
  3. Jordan Montgomery 2018 Outlook

    The three affornentioned main stays. Plus the Yankees will for sure sign at least one starter, cc probably comes back and I assume another. On top of that if was announced Chad Green would come into camp as a starter. Plus Chance Adams is close? The Yankees rotation could play very similar to the Dodgers next year in terms of volume. I like Montgomery and think he has a bright future which includes starts in 2018, but it ain't going to be 34 starts and I'd probably take the under on 25. Not necessarily a bad thing, but worth mentioning. I'm not sure he starts with a rotation spot so in shallow leagues he's an avoid until we know for sure.

  5. Shohei Otani - SP/OF Japan

    If Mike Leake wasn't on the Cardinals and was on the White Sox or something, do you really think his stats would have measured up to getting an 80 million dollar contract. I don't. I agree organizations have done better at factoring in home parks and leagues, but there are still big biases.
  6. Shohei Otani - SP/OF Japan

    I get the whole "he could be hurt and never have a 2nd contract" thing. Belive me I do. That being said, he's already a legend in Japan. It's not like this guy won't have an oppurtunity to make money via appearances, coaching, whatever. He's not some random linebacker or 2nd round NBA player. I get both sides honestly. That being said, even if he is financially motivated, it seems like someone of his talent would bet on himself. Unless he's calculated his maxnimum value to be a result of hitting too, and the DH being able to drive up that cost, I'd rather pitch in the NL if it was to decide my next big contract.
  7. Shohei Otani - SP/OF Japan

    The difference between 300k and 3.5 million isn't a lot when you consider he's setting himself up for a contract in 2 years that could easily fluctuate by the tens of millions depending on where he signs. I have to think even if he's the same pitcher a 3.7 ERA from an NL Team after 2 years probably gets him paid more than a 4.3 with the Yankees.
  8. 2018 Sleepers/Value Picks

    I'd love to hear what the other projection systems say about Chris Taylor and I'm a Dodgers fan myself. I'm not going off Streamer but when you say a player will hit twice as many home runs than a projection system says, that's significant. Whether you're too bullish or they are too bearish it's worth mentioning.

  10. Shohei Otani - SP/OF Japan

    I thought about Seattle for a while, but Nelson Cruz only played 5 games in the OF last season. I dont think they want to risk Ohtani much in the OF. Dodgers and Yankees seem like the best fit because they are big markets on the coast close to a championship, both of which have had prominent Japanese pitchers over the years. In theory, the Royals seem like a good landing spot because its a great home park and they would give him plenty of AB if needed, but I don't see anyone ever choosing KC in a free agent thing. With all the money being the same, I think he chooses the place that has the most to offer outside of money i.e. city life and championship possibility. The Dodgers especially seem like a good spot because they just lost in game 7. I think it's an appealing position to be the guy who pushes them over. Rangers have a bad home park, aren't close to win a championship, and I don't see much there besides the little bit more money he can get along with Yu Darvish played there. I'd certainly put them as a top 5-6 landing spot, but my 1-2 is tier of it's own.

    Did they really ?
  12. Giancarlo Stanton 2018 Season Outlook

    Tyler O’Neil could easily be sent away from St Louis too and he’s major league ready. cards have a ton of interesting outfield prospects
  13. Monte Harrison -- OF MIL Has 4 HR in less than 60 AB in the AFL.
  14. 2018 Sleepers/Value Picks

    I think that would be a very unlikely scenario. He had 568 PA last year, even tacking on 100 PA won't get him there . Streamer is projecting at 15 currently. If you think he's going to hit 30 home runs and steal 25 bases, then yes he's probably a sleeper for you. I think I'd project him at 21.
  15. Giancarlo Stanton 2018 Season Outlook

    If the Dodgers want him, he is certainly theirs. No team that's competing for Stanton has the assets the Dodgers have IMO... unless like the Braves got involved, which I see no chance of happening.
