    "making him a much better hitter" Mevins, this was not only in the article you cited, but you even quoted this exact line! So in your opinion, "much better" means the same thing as "exactly the same"?

    Are you really asking why you would grab a stud hitter off the wire? You'd leave the guy with the most homers and RBI of any first baseman in baseball on the wire, simply because you already lead your league in homers? And if you're last in steals how is the value of 40 steals any greater than if youre say, 8th or 9th in steals? Or 2nd or 3rd? Either way, you didnt mention anything about being #1 in HR and last in steals in the original post. And how many people who happen to be first and last in those 2 cats, were also the same owner who grabbed both Muncy and Aguilar? I'm going to need to see some math, or at least some kind of evidence to back up the relative value claim, because Im really not buying that its true. Aren't the value of Turner's steals are independent of the stats accumulated by other players in other categories?

    Not sure Im buying that. Power off the wire is helping you no matter who your SS is. The value of 40 steals isn't changing.
  4. Andrew Suarez 2018 Outlook

    I've watched the vast majority of Suarez's starts and his stuff just does not seem that good. Batters are very rarely fooled by his pitches. He doesn't miss bats at all and the stats back that up. There are currently 103 pitchers who have logged at least 80 innings, and Suarez has allowed more contact than all but 6 of them. To put it another way, he has the 7th worst wiff rate in baseball. His 50+% ground ball rate is great, but when the those grounders don't find gloves he struggles. Luckily he is able to limit walks and so far hes made it all work, but if he can't develop a better swing and miss pitch I dont see any way he keeps that K rate above 20%, or even sticks in the rotation long term for that matter. Major league pitchers generally cannot rely on called strikes as a way of life.

    Value relative to what?
  6. Bryce Harper 2018 Outlook

    Come ON man. Just 30 points more of avg, only 70 more points of OBP, and 90 more points of OPS? And only twice as many steals? #26 overall ranked player vs #88?? ZOMG THATS THE EXACT SAME SEASON!!!
  7. Willie Calhoun - 2B TEX

    What position(s) has he been playing lately?
  8. Trevor Story 2018 Outlook

    Fwiw Rodgers hasnt ever played a game at AAA. At AA he's slashing .270/.333/.508 with 17 HR and a 129 wRC+. He's obviously no threat to Story but I wouldn't call that stalling out

    At least hes not hurt yet
  10. Razzball Ralph's Mid-Season Top 100 Update

    Good point, it was quite a jump just to get inside the top 40. I hadn't considered that. I had no idea that Ralph previously had Adell ranked so highly.
  11. Razzball Ralph's Mid-Season Top 100 Update

    You're only worried about his 93 AAA PA's and don't care about the 273 PA's immediately prior to that at AA where he had an a 179 wRC+, OPS over 1.000, and walked almost as often as he K'd? I know hes struggled since his promotion, and he's not young for a prospect by any means, but he absolutely destroyed every previous level of the minors. All I was saying is that I was surprised to see 12 guys who havent even graduated from A-ball ranked ahead of him. Even Tyler O'Neill, who is also 23 yrs old, is 20 spots ahead of Alonso
  12. Razzball Ralph's Mid-Season Top 100 Update

    Ya I agree, but it's a fantasy specific list so I wouldn't expect as as much separation between 1B and OF as I would on a real life prospect-only list such as the ones from FG or BA. With the trend towards MLB teams playing lots of players at multiple positions, and the players gaining fantasy eligibility all over the diamond, positional scarcity (and the corresponding value bump) has almost disappeared. In real life obv thats not the case and SS/2B/CF will always carry a premium while 1B/LF get a downgrade
  13. Razzball Ralph's Mid-Season Top 100 Update

    Really surprised to see Adell shoot up so high and Alonso comparatively so low. I figured Alonsos proximity to the bigs along with his incredible performance at AA would get himself well inside the top 20.
  14. Freddy Peralta 2018 Outlook

    Wat Everyone who owns him in a keeper or dynasty does, and I assume the majority of people on this board play in at least one such league, if not multiple. The point is, he seems like a clear sell to me, but obv lots of people in this thread disagree
  15. Trea Turner 2018 Outlook

    Sure he's capable, but doing all those things in the same season is nowhere close to as easy as you think.
