  1. Updated Prospect Rankings?

    Are these your own rankings brock? If so, FANTASTIC job. Have you posted your own list previous seasons? If so I must have missed it. Question for you - Luciano at 197 is the highest of the 2018 J2 class (not counting Victor Victor), and it seems to me that the rest of the J2 class is pretty low versus some of the rookie ball "pop-up" prospects considering that so many of the 2017 J2 guys like Robinson (118), Mauricio (121), Rodriguez (150), Pereira (170), Valera (198) are ranked ahead of Luciano. Is this a statement on the 2018 class being weaker at first glance than the 2017 class, or a hesitance to rank them above 200 on international scouting reports alone? It seems like for fantasy purposes these players are where we can make hay on prospect stocks - if I take Kevin Alcantara at 309 overall this offseason and he becomes a George Valera I've just gained an easy 100+ ranking spots of "profit" in a single season.
  2. Updated Prospect Rankings?

    A valuable tool for deep league dynasty players, thanks for bringing this to my attention. Looks like this is purely an algorithmic ranking based on stats, age and level hence Luis Rengifo at 3rd overall, however it adds a ton of interesting unheralded names to my offseason research list. Seems to be mainly non-pedigreed starting pitchers that are ranked highly - Michael King, Dean Kremer, Patrick Sandoval all in the top 20. AJ Reed sighting at 48.
  3. Free - let me know if you are interested
  4. Brewers still available
  5. Brewers still available - link above!
  6. Still looking to fill the Brewers and Giants!
  7. I've got a couple of teams open for new ownership - the Giants and Brewers. The league spreadsheet locations for each roster are below to give you an idea of the major league and minor league rosters. Both are looking at short term rebuilds but have enough veteran presence to stay competitive with more active management. Giants 73-117-14, 3rd place NL West https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1SCGIU2nc-Hg0ecLcCTiK76-A2Zex8D9vY_SxPNipvbk/edit#gid=1756383331 Brewers 74-108-22, 4th place NL Central https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1SCGIU2nc-Hg0ecLcCTiK76-A2Zex8D9vY_SxPNipvbk/edit#gid=834416441 Let me know if you're interested in joining on with either team!
  8. Lucroy vs. Alfaro ros? WHIR

    Yeah I'd stick with Alfaro, you can always slot Ramos in when he's ready
  9. Rizzo Dynasty Deal

    Pretty unbalanced trade, Rizzo all day Mind giving me your opinion on my deal? Mind
  10. Dynasty League Trade - Big Names (WHIR)

    Seems fair to me, which means it's a deal worth making given your situation. I don't think the prospects you're giving up have much probability to ever be elite, which would make me more comfortable to make the deal if I was in your shoes. Mind sharing your opinion on my proposal? http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/707460-dynasty-trade-degrom-pham-for-greene-paddack-whir/
  11. In the playoff hunt - I get 2 more years of control (after 2018) over DeGrom, 1 more year of Tommy Pham for Hunter Greene, Chris Paddack, and Eric Haase (C, CLE). Seems appropriate to me but I wanted to get the board's opinion. WHIR
  12. 2018 Amateur Draft Results

    Grayson was taken in the 1st rd, 23rd overall. Pitching definitely is falling in our draft with many owners opting to take toolsy hitters over pitchers with #2/3 upside. That trend continues in the 3rd rd with Joe Gray going 50th and Mike Siani 51st. I'll post round 3 when finished too.
  13. 2018 1st year draftee rankings

    Besides the Razzball top 50 list that Fantrax list linked above is the best tool for fantasy owners in deep leagues to use for the 2018 draft class
  14. 2018 Amateur Draft Results

    Round 2 complete so I figured I'd continue to share with you all. Some definite fantasy influence has us deviating from the real-life draft results - notably Jenista, Eierman, Pompey. My favorite values for fantasy purposes are Edwards at 30th overall, Casas at 39th overall, and Denaburg at 45th overall (this one was mine so I'm definitely partial). 1. Logan Gilbert, RHP, SEA 2. Nick Schnell, OF, TB 3. Parker Meadows, OF, DET 4. Cole Winn, RHP, TEX 5. Griffin Conine, OF, TOR 6. Xavier Edwards, SS, SD 7. Tristan Beck, RHP, ATL 8. Greyson Jenista, 1B/OF, ATL 9. Cadyn Grenier, SS, BAL 10. Jeremy Eierman, SS, OAK 11. Grant Lavigne, 1B, COL 12. Ryan Rollison, P, COL 13. Steele Walker, OF, CWS 14. Jake McCarthy, OF, ARI 15. Triston Casas, 1B/3B, BOS 16. Tristan Pompey, OF, MIA 17. Anthony Seigler, C, NYY 18. Jameson Hannah, OF, OAK 19. Daniel Lynch, LHP, KC 20. Jeremiah Jackson, SS, LAA 21. Mason Denaburg, RHP, WAS 22. Alek Thomas, OF, ARI 23.
