  1. 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.

    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
  3. 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.

  5. Still looking for an Astros owner
  6. The 24 team dynasty/salary cap league I created this offseason (the Juiced Ball League) has an opening for the Astros. We are beginning our mid-season amateur draft on Wednesday, with the eligible player pool limited to signed players drafted in June's MLB draft. This is a 10 round affair with over 250 prospects being added to rosters! Scoring format is 6x6 categories with OBP, SLG, R, RBI, HR, SB and K/9, ERA, WHIP, Svs, Hlds, QS Highlights of the league are: 60 man minor league systems x 24 teams = 1200 minor leaguers owned Offseason Rule 5 draft, Minor League Free Agent draft, and in-season Amateur Draft Salary caps and free agent bidding system ensures relative competitive parity Links: Constitution Forum Check it out and hit me up at cwhittl3@gmail.com if you are interested! Houston Astros (51-103-14, last place in the AL) Spreadsheet with salary and contract info Fantrax roster with season stats The Astros are definitely a rebuild but are in no way gutted. That said, they are probably looking at a 2-3 year rebuild and are a perfect project for any prospect hounds out there!

  8. Michael Gettys - OF SD

    I saw the previous thread had been archived: Probably due to Gettys' struggles repeating high-A in 2017 with a .254/.329/.431 triple slash but most alarmingly a 37.2% K rate. The knock on Gettys has always been very poor feel to hit, and he hasn't done much to alleviate those concerns. Thanks to a recent hot streak (4 HRs between 5/31 and 6/5) Gettys is now at .262/.332/.487 in AA, striking out 29.2% of the time. He's 9/12 on the bases and has 10 HRs. After considerably souring on Gettys the industry consensus seems to be that he has the ceiling of a real-life 4th OF. From Fangraphs' SD list Gettys profiles as a potential utility player - "Gettys has a 7 arm and 6 power but can’t hit". However with the fantasy-relevant power/speed combination that he brings Gettys might be a decent buy-low especially in OBP leagues, provided the current owner isn't attached to any former name value. Has anyone gotten any looks at Gettys or seen any Twitter buzz about his encouraging numbers to date?

  10. Jhailyn Ortiz OF Phi

    Since his return from the DL on 5/21 Ortiz is hitting .350/.366/.475 with 6 multi-hit games and 9 Ks in 41 PAs, 1 HR, 2 doubles. No walks, but definitely an encouraging sign given how he started the year.
  11. Rockies and Nats have been filled, but the Brewers are available! At 29-43-12 they are in last place in the NL Central but still have a very young competitive team that could easily make a mid-season push! Email me at cwhittl3@gmail.com if interested, roster below: Google sheets (salary, contracts) https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1SCGIU2nc-Hg0ecLcCTiK76-A2Zex8D9vY_SxPNipvbk/edit#gid=834416441 Fantrax: https://www.fantrax.com/fantasy/league/a0a0rjulj8ktfamp/team/roster?adminMode=false&teamId=rm8efsenj8ktfamz
  12. Prospect hounds I need your input! My dynasty team will need SP help this season and beyond. Should I trade Brent Rooker and Akil Baddoo for Corbin Burnes? The way both are hitting doesn't inspire confidence and Burnes is a decent bet to debut this season IMO. Thoughts?
