  1. I believe this was referred to earlier in this thread, but when Ajayi was healthy he was receiving about 15 touches per game. Nothing against Howard, he will have his role, but his talent doesn't compare to what Sanders has to offer. This isn't the Patriots, rather it's that the Eagles, under Pederson, up until this point have chosen not to invest heavily in the RB position. They are now invested. He should be receiving his 15 touches a game which should be 10-12 runs and 2-4 catches per game. With this o-line there is only one way to go and that is downhill. Take some of the demand of Wentz, keep him healthy and control the clock.
  2. From Stl Today 3 days ago, a quote from Manager Mike Shildt, "He’s done a lot of what he needs to do offensively,” said Shildt. “He’s got a really high OPS. Last time, I saw it it was a little over 1.000. Defensively, he’s capable. We’ve seen that. There’s nothing else he really needs to be able to prove. It’s a matter of justifying ... do we bring him up and have him come off the bench?" and he continues “We’ve got outfielders who have done a representative job for us. We don’t feel like there’s a huge call but we recognize, and not blindly, we have to score more runs and we have to look for solutions for that.” Thought I read that Cards GM John Mozeliak has been impressive and bring a new element to the team as reported by Tom Ackerman at KMOX. He may be coming up soon.
  3. Looks like it's ATL, CHC and SF for his next 3 starts. Mehh.
  4. With his proximity to the bigs what are we thinking of Kieboom long term? My personal projections... .270/.350/.485 80/25/85 This sound about right to you guys? Not top 25 or maybe even 50, but perhaps top 75.
  5. Benching him for the first start. Tough Dodgers lineup, 5 inning limit, in a qs and k/bb and k/9 league. We need to see how the Friars plan to start off the 2nd half. Could face ATL, CHC, and SF or Mia, NYM, BAL.
  6. Harold Ramirez OF for Miami is being called up.
  7. I own Otani in a dynasty league in yahoo and am trying to state a point of me not needing to hold onto Otani off my active roster cause I own the pitching side of him. Some in my league argue that since I drafted him it is my responsibility to have to reason with his playing status despite which player I own nad I feel like that is a selfish approach. If the hitting side of Otani gets injured than both manager reap the benefits. Yet, when he can hit and not pitch, one team (the pitching side) has to suffer the consequences. If the league is trustworthy do you allow a team to place him on a phantom DL and lose one DL position for an entire year? This would allow them to employ another active player in their roster and increase competition. Or do you make said team deal with their or yahoo's decision to divide this player in two and tell them to pound sand? Just looking for opinions on the matter.
  8. As Rotoworld states, Koufos has been a DNP-CD 2 out of the last 4. WCS averages 28.5 minutes per game. Bagley was around 27mpg before he hit the shelf. I think he could get near to 20mpg with his added versatility over Koufos. Just gotta wait for him to start shooting 3's. It's probably due to his fouling problems, but I do wonder if they will try to give him a minutes restriction with how they have handled him so far.
  9. He would, but considering how close Kieboom is and the contract D.J. is aiming for they just aren't a match. I'd be surprised anyways.
  10. Nationals GM Mike Rizzo stated in November 2018 that they expect him to be up at some point in 2019. He also noted that Difo and Kendrick are going to split the 2B role going into the season. Kieboom had a great AFL and while I would have liked to have seen power, it was nice seeing his OBP rebound from his short stint at AA Harrisburg to end the season. However, they have also been linked to Ian Kinsler and Brian Dozier. Pair that with their off-season moves and one would have to assume they would prefer the added insurance at 2B for one more year if they find someone willing to sign a 1 year deal. Lowrie would probably make more sense over Dozier. Unless he tears it up I think we may have a little longer (2020) to wait than anticipated.
  11. 19/7/2 tonight with 3 triples. Hoping this isn't just another flash in the pan for him as I have been a fan of his for a while. Here is a excerpt from the Pistons SB Nation blog: While it’s still early, the turnaround in his numbers have been dramatic - especially when you look at them per 36 minutes. Starter: 9 points per 36 minutes, 35/25/80 percent shooting line, 5.8 rebounds, 2 assists, 2.9 turnovers, .9 steals Bench: 19.4 points per 36 minutes, 47/37/75 percent shooting line, 6.4 rebounds, 2 assists, 1.2 turnovers, 2.6 steals Top 125 over the past 7 days in 9 cat. He played well against a wounded Warriors squad and dominated Kawhi in the last 8 minutes of the Raptors game practically helping them win the game. With his defense I am hoping for the playing time to stick between 20-25 for the foreseeable future.
  12. He has been catching my eye now for a little bit and with Rosario's struggles I think he is worth taking note on as he closes out his season as a 19 year old. Mets (A+) 85 351 6 43 30 28 6.3 % 19.9 % .149 343 .282 .348 .432 Mets (AA) 20 85 0 11 9 5 7.1 % 15.3 % .096 .383 .315 .398 .411 His K rate has decreased and walk rate increased moving up to AA. I am not sure he will ever develop that much power as I think he is listed at 160 somewhere. However, with his strong eye at the plate, ability to hit for a high average and speed on the base paths it is beginning to look like he will at least challenge Rosario at some point. I would like to say the 2019 season, but I feel he would really have to light it up next year in order for that to happen. Here is what Chad Kreuter (Andres' High A Manager at Port St. Lucie ) had to say about him: "If he was on any other lineup, with a Jeff McNeil or a Peter Alonso, he'd be getting a ton of fastballs and he might be hitting .330, but because he's here he gets changeups, sliders, curveballs. Those are all the first pitches he sees every at-bat, which is great for his development, but it's also hindered his ability to hit for a higher average right now." Baseball America Fangraphs had him at 103 for midseason rankings. Sickels at 48. MLB Pipeline at 59. What are you guys thinking here? Late 2019? Early 2020?
  13. He has logged 8 games at CF in the minors so far. Might as well open that up to opportunity as well.
  14. His ld gb fb percentages in the short sample from aa. 11.6% 51.2% 37.2%
  15. One of his more human starts tonight, 6IP 2ha 1bb 2er 4k's. Only took him 75 pitches (52 for strikes) to get there though.
