  1. Ender Inciarte 2018 Outlook

    Power comes in many forms (my league counts total bases) so I always look at 2B and 3B also. If he could hit 10-12 more doubles (he had 27 last year), it would be a big boost to my analysis. Agreed on OF3 underselling it. I just think of guys who may be undervalued for whatever reason in my auction. I already have Judge at OF1 and none of my keepers run at all, so I'm gonna need Hamilton/Gordon at OF2 to even compete in SB. SO an OF3 whith some power/steals combo is what I'm really focused on researching for my squad.

    I will be staying away from all Arizona hitters until I see the effects. I will be throwing them out early in my auction to get people to spend auction dollars.
  3. Ender Inciarte 2018 Outlook

    A blurb from Roto suggests he may look to run more. Could he add some more power? Thats a legit 304 average weighted more heavily than any other AVG in the league because of his ABs. For that reason alone I will be targeting him as an OF3. But...a bit more pop would really be awesome. Thoughts? Ender Inciarte worked on his baserunning and defensive range this offseason with speed coach Tom Shaw. Inciarte had a career year in many ways in 2017, slashing .304/.350/.409 over a league-leading 662 at-bats while earning his first National League All-Star nod and second Gold Glove, but he feels he can do better than the 22 stolen bases he tallied in 31 attempts. The 27-year-old center fielder carries intriguing fantasy upside as the locked-in leadoff man in a young Braves lineup that should get better and better as the 2018 season goes along.

  5. Top 10 overvalued players for 2018 - agree or not?

    Gregory Polanco? Overvalued? I figured he might go for a song. Agree on Judge. I own him in my keeper league at a real cheap price but trying to project his numbers for my team is tricky. If people are expecting 50+ hr again....I think he will disappoint a lot of folks. Agree on the rest. MadBum is one I may target at the right price.
  6. Gregory Polanco 2018 Outlook

    At the discounted price I anticipate him to go for at my auction, I'd be willing to throw an extra $1 or $2 to win the auction on him after reading this piece. I really believe this is the year he may bust out with 20-25 HR and 25 SB. https://newsinteractive.post-gazette.com/blog/rebuilding-gregory-polanco/
  7. AJ Pollock 2018 Outlook

    I mean...you would have to devote a spot to a decent backup with upside say Michael Taylor. But at the right price, I think AJ is a decent gamble.
  8. AJ Pollock 2018 Outlook

    He had a real decent 2nd half with 11 HR/7 SB/ 20 doubles (my league counts Total Bases, so I always look at 2B and 3B as well) and a terrific walk/k rate. He was a bit unlucky on the BA front with a .257 BABIP. Anyone think he can be a bit of an OF2 sleeper this year? Gotten for under $17-20 at auction? How will the humidor affect him?
  9. BPS Annual Early Catcher Rankings

    Disagree on the Rox parrothead. Check out the Iannetta Outlook thread. I think he can be a nice $1 sleeper who I plan to target.
  10. Chris Iannetta 2018 Outlook

    Now that is some very nice analysis mate and the reason these boards are so valuable. If I'm caught short, $1 for Iannetta in Coors is a much better play than spending $10 on a Yadi who is unlikely to replicate his numbers. Thanks for the tip on Iannetta.
  11. Mike Zunino 2018 Outlook

    I usually pay no more than $5 for my catcher. The trick is finding the one that will slot in at #6 right behind the top guys. Whether it be Zunino, Ramos or some other guy is what I'm trying to figure out.
  12. Mike Zunino 2018 Outlook

    Zunino was pretty solid last year for a late round flier. Age 26, .251/.330/52/25/64 in only 387 AB. Thats a nice looking line for a guy who will go for less than $5 in most standard formats. Anyone think this a new normal for him? He was the #3 overall pick back in 2012 behind Correa and Buxton and hitting in what should be a pretty decent Mariners lineup.
  13. Gregory Polanco 2018 Outlook

    At the right price, he is intriguing and could provide a ton of value.

    They give Bochy the credit for managing the pen wisely. "Bochy knows how to use the bullpen," Casilla said. "He is the key, because we know what to do, but he has to know who to use." https://www.mlb.com/news/giants-core-four-relievers-eye-their-third-world-series-title/c-98945384

    My prediction is for Top 3 NL MVP finish for him this year.
