  1. Excellent article. It's sad to see so many mediocre hitters hitting bombs nowadays.

    AJ Reed - 1B HOU

    He will be up this month...
  3. I use The Fantasy Baseball Guide, chief editor is Peter Kreutzer. They have a lot of knowledgeable dudes collaborating like Alex Patton, Pianowski, Shandler, etc. For projections, I use Fantasy 411's composite stats to determine the baseline. I infuse my own opinion and judgement from there. For ADP's, I use FantasyPros. Again, I use my personal judgement on draft day. I am a huge believer in crowdsourcing.
  4. Hasn't been the same pitcher since surgery IMO. Extremely brittle to boot, which is not a recipe for success.
  5. He was that good before his elbow gave out. Different pitcher now.
  6. This is a good advice. I stayed away from BA this year because of the injuries. I would not want him but if he is part of a bigger trade, I'd consider it.
  7. I think what you left out there was no run support. Defense would probably hurt also no?
  8. Did he really ditch the slider? Fangraphs shows he has not thrown one this year. Might want to bring that back if he wants to succeed.
  9. The velocity drop is definitely concerning but it is still too early to panic. Any pitcher can look like garbage at Coors. He's still getting K's, which is good news.
  10. Good post. I think he is going to have a monster year and I wish I had him. Lost weight = less ganja and Doritos.
  11. I think the point is to make the game more challenging. If everyone has a stud player then what's the point of researching and doing the draft if you can just replace a struggling player off waivers? That said, I only play in one league with friends so I have not had the opportunity to play in one. I can see it being frustrating though especially since you have to focus so much on crappy players, guessing playing time, and inability to improve your team that much during the season.
  12. He is only 27 and well past the injury nexus. It's possible that we will never see the dominant Timmy of 2009 or 2010 again but he is still an elite pitcher. He'll easily make more in the open market so I don't think it's crazy for him to turn down the offer.
  13. I agree that he is a value pick this year.
