  1. Harry Giles 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    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.
  2. Carter Kieboom-SS-WSH

    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.
  3. Carter Kieboom-SS-WSH

    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.
  4. 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.
  5. Andres Gimenez - SS NYM

    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?
  6. Garrett Hampson 2018 Outlook

    He has logged 8 games at CF in the minors so far. Might as well open that up to opportunity as well.
  7. Chris Paddack - SP SD

    His ld gb fb percentages in the short sample from aa. 11.6% 51.2% 37.2%
  8. Chris Paddack - SP SD

    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.
  9. Brendan Rodgers - SS COL

    I think he sticks at ss. I don't believe the Rockies would pass up having Garret Hampson wreak havoc on the bases at the top of the order. He would take over for Story.
  10. Keibert Ruiz- C Dodgers

    I just feel like if they are going to rank Mejia well within the top 50 on most sites going into 2017 than Keibert deserves the same going into 2018. He will get it, eventually. Don't mind me, I'm just nervous I won't get to see him in the futures game in DC.
  11. Keibert Ruiz- C Dodgers

    Smith (21) looks pretty good, but it looks like Keibert (19) will be that much better. Switch hitter and a high contact rate? Low k%? Great remarks in regards to his defense? All checks marked off, though his arm strength seems to be in the area need most improvement. Comparing him to Mejia in High-A: Mejia .333/.380/.488 BB% 7.1 K% 13.0 in 184 PA Ruiz .315/.344/.497 BB% 4.4 K% 14.4 in 160 PA Ruiz was a year younger at high-a than Mejia was so I don't get why he hasn't gotten similar love that Mejia has. As stated above, the smart writers have him ranked just outside the top 50. I don't see why he wouldn't have a chance to compete for a spot in the latter half of 2019 if he continues the way he has thus far.
  12. Bilal Powell 2017 Outlook

    This may be more of a bench question, but who are we starting him over in this favorable matchup? I am putting him in the lineup over Lamar Miller.
  13. Heliot Ramos OF SF

    Currently batting .348/.404/.645 with 10SB after 151PA. Also has a k% of 31.8, but as a 17 year old in rookie league I am intrigued to say the least. Almost half (23) of his 47 hits have been of the extra base variety. Anyone else got any input on this kid?
