  1. Does the Draft really even matter anymore?

    sorry, best player available (I almost didn't abbreviate it)...lol
  2. Does the Draft really even matter anymore?

    The draft is your foundation, so it does matter a great deal. In baseball, it's tough to ace the draft and just ride out your team. With all the injuries that go on, you have to be extremely lucky. I don't think I draft as well as many others. I'm always a round late on guys like Acuna. Maybe I get too attached to drafting categories instead of the BPA. I also have trouble laying off non-injured guys who drop. "What a great value" I say. "getting a 5th rounder in the 7th" I say. Then I promptly see the reason he dropped. My strength is mid-season adjustments...maybe BPA is the I need to way to go.

    Local league I'm in has a trophy of a horses a**.

    Reading the board, the one people had an issue with seemed to be altuve . i can’t imagine acunas adp will be more than Ramirez. Every one of those hitters has the capability to steal bases outside of arenando and JD

    Well... I can’t brag too much. I’ve yet to win one against them. I’m not special, Anyone can join if they put up the buy. That one was $125.00. Just trying to give a reasoning behind the acuna and mondesi picks. I was curious how high both would go. Thought they’d go early but Didn’t expect it to be that early tbh

    I’ve played in leagues with some of those guys. They’re solid players...many take shots. Anyone who can steal bases is going to get a big bump compared to a “regular” league

    ^ I think that first 15 is pretty solid. You're going to see a lot of power/speed combo guys in the 1st and aces. I see aces rise higher and higher every year, so I'm curious to see how that goes. I think the first NFBC draft is some time in November or December. Those usually set the ADP trend.

    Correa is going to be a polarizing pick. Nobody who has had him the last 2 years is going to touch him before the 4th or 5th round, but he still has that 2nd round allure to him.

    Ya not going to fault anyone who takes Arenado 5th. He doesn’t run and didn’t hit .330 so that’s why I projected him there

    Seems like the top 4 is pretty set. IMO you're going to see three guys going 1st overall next season in most drafts...Trout, Betts, Ramirez. Lindor will float around in the top 4. After that it's a toss up. My super preliminary first round 1. Trout 2. Ramirez 3. Betts 4. Lindor 5. Manny 6. Yelich 7. Scherzer 8. JD 9. Turner 10. Arenado 11. Harper 12. Story Leaving out guys like Bregman, Judge, Baez, Acuna, Benintendi, Blackmon I think the power/speed combo guys will rise. Acuna will get some helium with his second half. He was basically Yelich in August & September. 2nd round you're going to see the ace run. Kluber, Snell, Verlander, Degrom, Kershaw, Nola. You'll see some of these guys go in the first due to teams grabbing an ace/ace combo. Just looking at this, I think I'd want to draft 3rd overall.

  20. Waiver Wire - Streaming Options

    Looking at the weather maps, the entire Baltimore/White Sox series is threatened. Miami & Phille will probably be impacted. The rest just depends on how soon it turns north and if it stalls. I think Atlanta will probably be okay. This is going to be a bad, bad storm. Everyone in the Carolinas stay safe.
  21. Waiver Wire - Streaming Options

    Washington at Atlanta NYM at Boston White Sox at Baltimore Miami at Philadelphia Toronto at NYY Detriot at Cleveland I think all of these series could be impacted by Florence making landfall this weekend. File that in the back of your mind.

    Dropped JT Riddle when Correa came off the DL. was excited at the time. Looks like the jokes on me
  24. Freddy Peralta 2018 Outlook

    Not sure why the brewers keep giving rookie pitchers their first start of the season in coors, but here we are. This guy has promise, and does pitch in Colorado Springs. Hopefully it doesn’t jack him up too much
