  1. Does the Draft really even matter anymore?

    The draft only matters if you screw it up. Just pick safe guys in the first 3 rounds and you got a shot to win the league. If you pick Baez 1st round, a pitcher 2nd round and Mondesi 3rd round, you will lose your league quickly.

    Taking Baez in the 1st round is how people lose leagues.

    I'll be surprised if they don't try him as a starter next year. His numbers are a joke. He strikes out almost half the batters he faces in the pen. Half. You're telling me he can't air it out for even 5 innings every 5th day and give you 150 IP instead of 80?
  4. Patrick Corbin 2018 Outlook

    Didn't even realize this massive stud has a 1.28 FIP in the 2nd half.
  5. Matt Manning - SP DET

    Command is coming quicker than people think. Maybe it's because he started baseball late in his life and is at the low end of his learning curve. Possible he could be a rare pitcher that is tall and also coordinated. Gets the Glasnow comp because of the high fastball + spike curve. And height. But I think he has better extension and less velo.

    wRC+ is up to 181 right now. That would be tied with JD Martinez for 2nd in baseball. Minimum 135 PAs which is what White has. It's a hot streak, but this is the degree of the hot streak.
  7. 8/29 - GAME DAY THREAD

    I feel like Bregman swung through strike 3 and they called it a check. But the ball was also on the black. ...
  8. Ramon Laureano 2018 Outlook

    Just ripped a ball off the wall.
  9. Ramon Laureano 2018 Outlook

    This guy has big league skills. Run, arm and exit velo are all big league caliber without a doubt. I think he's lucky that the A's are a top 5 offense because they will probably give him some leeway in order to get his glove in CF.

    After tonight's big game: 1.020 OPS in MLB 1.013 OPS in AAA.
  11. Matt Holliday 2018 Outlook

    The only way Parra's vetrin presentz could be supplanted is with an even bigger vetrin presentz.

    Gattis and Marwin are both UFAs. I know the Astros were moving White around the diamond in AAA. He even played SS down there. They might see him as a Marwin replacement. Or at the very least, he can replace Gattis. Probably Kemp replaces Marwin and White replaces Gattis. That would make sense.
  13. August Closer Thread 2018

    Had a -2.84 FIP and a 27.00 K/9 tonight.
  14. Ramon Laureano 2018 Outlook

    Well Fowler's about 6 months younger and had a 137 wRC+ in AAA. Laureano had a 135 wRC+ in AAA. Projection systems have Fowler's MLB wRC+ at like 90-93 and Laureano's at 86-89. You might suppose they could be equal offensively. If you want to give a slight edge to Fowler because of approach, that's fine. Will it be enough to make up the gap defensively? I would say no! Also Fowler was on pace for -1.5 WAR. xWOBA .310. Pretty bad. It's possible he sucks.
  15. Ramon Laureano 2018 Outlook

    Fowler sucks. Laureano can win the CF job on defense alone.
  16. Taylor Ward 2018 Outlook

    I also like his approach. Watched every AB. He's one of those hitters that recognizes ball/strike right out of the hand. Only has a 4% swinging strike so far.
  17. Nick Solak, 2B-OF, Tampa

    2 homers tonight. 18 HR / 21 SB and a .832 OPS in AA this year.
  18. Greg Bird 2018 Outlook

    I think Greg Bird sucks but what is he supposed to do in front of the firing squad there? The reporters are just taking turns telling him he sucks in various different ways. He's just responding by telling them, "F off i'm still a big leaguer going through a slump", as nice as possible.
  19. Logan Allen - SP SD

    He keeps meeting the challenge put in front of him. Scouts don't put huge grades on his stuff. Maybe he tunnels his pitches really well or something. Comp could be Jon Lester.
  20. Tyler White 2018 Outlook

    This guy can hit. Always could hit in the minors, just needed a swing tweak to tap power in the bigs. If he wasn't fat and looked funny at the plate, he would have had more hype a long time ago.
  21. Tampa Bay Rays 2018 Outlook

    Nick Solak could go 20/25 in AA this year with good OBP and defense. Wonder how he finds time.
  22. Jose Martinez 2018 Outlook

    Guy is hitting .415 in August and we're surprised he's in the lineup. How many runs can he possibly cost you in RF to offset this hot streak? If there's a LHB at the dish just swap him and Ozuna. Boom, even less chances in the OF.
  23. Jose Martinez 2018 Outlook

    Good hitter finds groove with consistent ABs. News flash at 11.
  24. Ryan Zimmerman 2018 Outlook

    This guy's actually a monster.
  25. Hudson Potts 3B - SD

    Probably the most underrated prospect in the game. I mean, he was a 1st rounder and now he's 19 in AA? Isn't that like the best case scenario for a prospect?
