  1. We're all using incomplete information to try to predict an outcome. I like using projections but putting ranges on categories like poker hands then tiering them. Like this group could get 50+ steals, this group 30-50, etc. It does help to know what number you need to hit in 5x5 and how far away you are from hitting it
  2. In light of the Tyson Ross news...I think this guy could have a Vincent Velasquez type impact this season
  3. I use to have that opinion, but everyone cheated. He's only in a small pocket of players that got caught. MLB should just accept that's the way it was in that era. It's not like they went out of their way to stop the players from doing it.
  4. Stop cherry picking the roiders. The Hall of Fame is supposed to tell the story of baseball. You can't tell it without Bonds & Clemens Bonds had a freakin .609 OBP in 2004. .609!
  5. Don't like Zimmerman. He's trending down and we know what he is now. I think you should be shooting for the guys with higher upside. That's why I think Weaver is a lock for keeper. Gio is okay in this format and you could flip him for a marginal piece mid season.
  6. starting round 37 now (pick 555) Here's how my team looks so far. Everyone has holes, mine will obviously be closer and probably SP depth if some of these guys don't get a call early.

  8. Pedroia & Happ were taken about as late as any draft so far out of 20. Gray comes with some questions, but most of the pitchers in these rounds do.

  10. Just let the roiders in. The whole thing is silly.
  11. Zimmer would be cut... add two other upside pitchers. I don't know if anyone on this list is capable of becoming an ace. Maybe Gausman or Snell. You can win with several tier 2 & 3 pitchers though. Just try for gradual improvement. Be patient. Sell your RP's as often as you can. They are the easiest to replace. You have a long way to go, but I've seen much worse.
  12. Do you have a prospect roster?
  13. It's 5x5. You're right, if you fall behind in pitcher cats it is really tough to catch up. Ramirez & Upton went about where their ADP is. Upton probably did better than you think. His 1st half was atrocious, but he went off in the 2nd half. Upton could post 35-40hr if everything comes together...then again, he could also post a stinker. Kinda looking for those high upside guys. SB falls off this season and it falls off fast. Unless you want to deal with someone like Dyson will give you little else besides SB. That's one reason I took Ramirez. Could 25 bases with a little pop and hits for a little average. I kinda wish I took Harper over Donaldson, but so far I'm liking this team a lot, especially if I can hit on another closer. Which means I'll finish 13th.
  14. I'm throwing Ross, Sanchez, & Zimmerman back into the muck. Then if you want to cut further, one of Gio, Wheeler, or Richards. Probably Wheeler.
  15. He's this years Correa. Ole Jim Bowden is on Sirius touting him as a top 5 pick (which is ridiculous). His ADP now is 11.55 and Harpers is 10.20. Speed is tough to come by...maybe that's why? I think i want to draft either in the first 8 picks or at the very end. The 10th pick sucks. Just too many ways you can go. The KDS never goes my way
