  1. Whats wrong with Crawford this year?
  2. Here's what razball's Ralph Lifshtz said about him right before the ASB. I'm pretty sure he heated up a little bit after too. Jordan Luplow, 3B/OF Altoona Curve (Pirates): .288/.369/.559, 16 HR, 1 SB | Age: 23 | Level: AA Through his first 2 1/2 seasons of pro-ball Luplow flashed solid power, and on base ability, but nothing like we’re seeing in 2017. A three year starter at Fresno State, Luplow was the 100th overall selection in the 2014 draft, and was viewed mostly as a safe but unexciting prospect with some power and speed upside. In the first half of 2017 he’s moved toward a power-only corner infield or outfield bat, backed by 16 homers to only 1 steal to date. At AA he’s not that far from the majors, and could be pop-up guy, or this year’s Mitch Haniger. Point is you never know.
  3. Getting called up for the Pirates now. Not a top 100 prospect, but I think he's someone to monitor in fantasy. If you're in a league where every starting OF is owned, he should probably be picked up. 10-12 team leagues with 5 OF spots, this guy should be monitored closely. He has some power, decent contact and walk rates. Slugged almost .550 for the season across AA/AAA. Might be a short stay, but he's a guy that's been on my radar for super deep leagues this year. here you go @Z06vette
  4. you mean you have to have a catcher in the active catcher slot, regardless if he's playing in a game that day
  5. I hope Albies. Blurb makes it think Carmago will play ss full time? Seems like a chance for Albies but I could also see the Braves just waiting until next year for Acuna and Albies
  6. I bought the hype too man.
  7. you messed up on the slash line I think. He's not slugging 810, thats his OPS. He's slugging .479 These numbers are fine, but it's the PC so slightly less impressive. His 25.9% K rate is the worse he's had in the minors. He's not now, but I feel like Reed isn't the prospect we once thought he could be. He'll get another shot in the majors at some point.
  8. thanks man
  9. I'd be on board regardless because I think he's pretty decent, but the first name doesn't hurt.
  10. @BlueJaysIn2030 yeah thats annoying, my opinion is the same from what I said before about what you can do. The trade isn't the worst I've seen. Kluber at 31 in Dynasty League has some value, but it's not like he's a young buck and pitchers can lose it at any point. That being said, he probably should have traded for some younger assets. Even with 5 OF, in a 10 team league Jones isn't that exciting... but he has use.
  11. If there's 0 ambiguity as to whether he should have had 3b and you've changed it for other people, I see nothing wrong. It would still be in your best interest to post a message every time you do this for someone or yourself.
  12. This seems a little poorly worded. Theres a commish, new guy who traded an Ace, and a veteran to the league who got the Ace? The commish is just being mean to the guy who got the Ace? Sounds like a lot of extraneous information here. I don't see what you can do about a commissioner talking smack. If you can't change the commissioner you'll just have to find a new league if it bothers you that much. Or try talking to him again, and maybe try to be more sincere? An Ace for a couple top 80 guys doesn't seem that bad in a keep 20. If the Ace isn't Kershaw, Scherzer, or Sale.... then there's probably nothing wrong with it at all. Even if it is, might make more sense to get younger guys you can keep longer.
  13. I can't admit I know where Chris Taylor qualified for at the beginning of the season on Fantrax. If you are using fantrax default position eligibilities, I find it almost unbelievable that every fantrax league gave him 3b except yours. I've never heard of that happening. I've heard a few times a site will mess up a position, but they mess it up for every league. Secondly If you "know" that he was 3b in every league when the season started (a bizarre thing to know about a fringe player at the beginning of the season), how did it take you until almost August to figure out a player on your team wasn't given the proper eligibility? Something seems off here. I do not think you were trying to cheat at all. I wouldn't have done it. That being said, if you have been fixing eligibilities for everyone else, then I don't see the problem. I just hope there is some easy uniform way to figure out where someone qualifies, because sometimes its confusing with players changing position mid games and so on.
  14. I think you were wrong to do it. Fantrax has a contact feature where you can contact them to ask them about things. I think this was wrong because everyone simply can't do it themselves. If you notice something wrong on your roster it's unfair to change a player's eligibility just on yours. Especially without discussing it to the league. I think it's also wrong to make position calls yourself like that when a computer is already doing it. Reminds me when a friend in a basketball league was insistent on being awarded an extra block because one that should have been a block didn't count. He wanted to show me video footage. I'm like "take it up with ESPN" Secondly, I do think there's some ambiguity as to what he played last year. I'm always bad at figuring it out. Is it games played? Is it games started? Per baseball reference below he had most of his PA and AB at 2b last year. Split G GS PA AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB CS BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS TB GDP HBP SH SF IBB ROE BAbip tOPS+ sOPS+ as 2B 5 20 19 3 6 1 1 1 7 0 0 1 5 .316 .350 .632 .982 12 1 0 0 0 0 0 .385 209 150 as 3B 5 11 11 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 .182 .182 .182 .364 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 .250 20 -4 as SS 6 19 18 3 3 1 1 0 0 0 0 1 6 .167 .211 .333 .544 6 1 0 0 0 1 1 .250 73 48 as PH 15 15 13 2 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 1 .154 .267 .154 .421 2 1 0 0 0 0 0 .167 45 34 Per this page https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/t/tayloch03-field.shtml He started more games at 3b, but he played most innings at 2b. So to sum: Most AB and PA: 2b, Most innings played: 2b. Most game started: 3b. "he will qualify at the position(s) played most in the previous MLB season" If that's the rule, seems like you have to go with IP which would mean he only has 2b and maybe fantrax did it right.
  15. I guess we're getting into semantics but Correa getting hurt opened up an infield spot temporary held by Moran, now it makes sense to put Marwin in the infield full time which opened up an outfield spot.
