  1. Paul Goldschmidt 2018 Outlook

    But the entire will get negatively impacted by the humidor, so there should be less runs and RBIs as well as a drop in HRs
  2. Gregory Polanco 2018 Outlook

    He hurt his shoulder right before the season started last year, never went on the DL, then hurt his hamstring in May, went on the disabled list, and then proceeded to be mediocre before he hurt his hamstring again This is a do or die year for Polanco imo. The Pirates have some options to replace him if he isn't any good. His offseason workout routine has apparently changed, so hopefully he'll be able to stay healthy this year.
  3. 2018 Sleepers/Value Picks

    Its early but Kuhl and Polanco. I'm bullish on Kuhl, this is a big make or break year for Polanco and he was hurt a big portion of 2017. If he's healthy in 2018, who knows... either pretty good or pretty mediocre. Should be cheap
  4. 2017-2018 Off-season and Hot Stove Thread

    If the Trout FA discussion is this heated in 2017 I can't wait to see what it's like in 2020
  5. Charlie Morton 2017 Outlook

    I wouldn't be surprised if weighted balls is what helped him. Ya, he says he tries to throw harder.. maybe thats true too. I know Benedict (pitching guy in PIT) is against weighted balls and when Charlie left, maybe he tried them out. It's also possible the pitch to contact approach the Pirates had was holding Charlie back, but... the velo increase is pretty drastic He did say he changed his workout routine so I wouldn't be surprised if it was weighted balls that helped him

    Probably another boring off-season from the Pirates. But I have to admit, I've been rooting for the Pirates to sign Mous. Would be a great fit but.. it's the Pirates. The OF FA market pretty much kills the possibility of a McCutchen trade. NL Central as a whole should be pretty interesting. Cubs will have holes, Cardinals, Brewers... Not sure what Otani ends up doing.. but if he does come over that will be amazing. Add Nicasio to the RP list. Nicasio has been very good for a couple of years now. Cardinals might resign him though, they need RP
  7. Chicago Cubs 2018 Outlook

    Losing Lackey and Arrieta could be interesting. Wonder how they go about replacing them. FA, maybe a Schwarber trade?

    This guy forgot AGonz, which brings the total closer to 105 million.

    Really? I thought for sure you'd be more of an Astros fan
  10. Luck vs Skill Revisited after 2017

    @Slatykamora is right. A skilled GM will win your league 99% of the time over a fool. But many of us are in 12 team leagues with 12 sharp owners. There has to be a ton of luck involved at the top, but that doesn't mean skill isn't a key factor as well
  11. Final Week Rotation Schedules

    Looks like Thursday: Nova Friday: Cole Saturday: Taillon Sunday: Brault
  12. Final Week Rotation Schedules

    Pirates: Tuesday: Trevor Williams Wednesday: Chad Kuhl Thursday: ??? Friday: ??? Saturday: (NOT CONFIRMED) Gerrit Cole Sunday: ??? Thursday, no clue. Friday, no clue. Sunday should be Taillon. No word on if he's being skipped or not yet. The Pirates have said they dont really plan on skipping Cole, and I'd fully expect him to start on Saturday... but havent seen anything official yet
  13. @tonycpsu @Fiveohnine I havent heard anything about Brault yet. I know he isnt starting Wednesday though. His last start had him lined up to go Wednesday but he isn't on a normal schedule so my guess is the book just has hasn't updated their matchups yet
  14. Chad Kuhl might be a good stream in deeper leagues Wednesday against the Orioles. Kinda depends on how many LHH they fit into the lineup, but even if they don't there is enough swing and miss that he could go 5-6 and get some K's

    Last night didn't go so well
