  1. And if he does that, you wont want to pay the price.
  2. He just missed losing his prospect status by a couple of innings
  3. This is a quote from BaseballHQ: Note that for RH hitters, there's little difference in HR park effects between Miller Park and Safeco Field, so that shouldn't affect your evaluation here. —Rod Truesdell
  4. Miggy started 32 games last year at 1B. It would be the rare league that Miggy would be a utility only player.
  5. My point is many are projecting regression and that is certainly realistic. He was a top 5 player if his small sample size is extrapolated over a full season. That is certainly possible for 2019 given his BAbip was .335 which is not out of line given his speed. His contact via fangraphs was 17.8 soft, 39.1 medium, and 43.1 hard. Most are projecting regression, some are projecting sustained 2018 numbers. Suppose, just suppose, he in fact demonstrates growth over his 2018 short sample size. I think his floor is a top 50-60 player. His ceiling is a top 3-4 player. I'm not predicting that, but not ruling it out. His risk is minimized by his defense.
  6. Mondesi made his professional stateside debut as a 16 yr old in the Pioneer league. He was hailed as a high upside prospect and was always promoted aggressively, hence was always extremely young for his level. As a prospect he was always playing catch up. He finally caught up to the level in 2017. As a 21 year old in AAA, he OPSed .879 and hit 13 Hrs and stole 21 bases in 85 games. That caught my eye and I grabbed him in a couple dynasty startups last year. As a highly touted prospect that played most of his minor league career extremely young for his age, he most likely suffered from prospect fatigue. Unlike Villar, his defense will guarantee him 600+ at bats. He accomplished a top 5 2nd half with an OBP of .306. If his OBP drops to say .290, he'll still put up top 50 numbers. What if he shows growth and makes slightly better contact and takes a few more walks? He's 23 years old! Is there not significant room for growth. I would suggest that all the hype may well be understated.
  7. Cano definitely has a good season or two left in the tank. I'd like to see the Ms eat most of Cano's contract. In that scenario they can get back a quality prospect/s. It'll take the Ms 5 years before they're contending and by then Cano will be off the books. Also, by taking Cano out of the lineup, the Ms will suck that much more thus garnering higher draft picks. As the Indianapolis Colts used to chant "suck for Luck".
  8. I've read and enjoyed your Rotoworld forum postings when ever I've see them. At the same time I've loved pitcherlist, both the previous day's starters and previous day's hitters. They are morning must reads. I had no idea the two of you are one and the same. For those of you who are unaware of pitcherlist, by all means check it out. Adam puts out a daily quality product. Thank you Adam for sharing your work.
  9. From a team standpoint it makes no sense to wait on TJ, but from Ohtani's standpoint, a strong DH finish puts him in the running for ROY.
  10. Thames was OPSing 1.014 vs right handers prior to his injury. How do you keep that out of the lineup. I think Braun/Santana/Perez becomes a time share.
  11. Yes, please drop in all of my leagues
  12. Let's not forget that Gallo hit those 41 HRs in only 449 at bats and he was two years younger than Judge. How many with 600 at bats?
  13. I thought of Jimmy Wynn "the toy cannon" but it turns out he was 5'10".
