  1. 2018 Dallas Cowboys Season Outlook

    Sure. I'd rather have two of those than one of them and a TWill who thinks catching with your hands is a skill insurmountable for an NFL WR.
  2. Chicago Bears 2018 Offseason

    Obviously written before today's trade, but I think the chances that the Bears get either at 8 are dwindling pretty clearly. I think specifically you need all of those top 4 picks to be QB/Saquon. Because of Chubb/Barkley are off for the Colts at 6, I think the only chance the Bears get QN is if the Colts trade back again. I do think there's about a tier difference in someone like Edmunds, but he has a lot of potential to be an impact player.
  3. Domingo Santana 2018 Outlook

    No I understand what you're saying. I think he'll get enough PT to justify an 8th round pick. That's what I'm saying
  4. Greg Bird 2018 Outlook

    Is he going a a discount? What's a discount to you?
  5. Domingo Santana 2018 Outlook

    I'll give you the HR/FB%, but Domingo Santana grades out in the 90th-99th percentile in almost every batted ball metric. I don't think there's a single player in baseball, based on 2017 batted ball metrics, who should've expected to hit for a higher BABIP than Santana. Everything is good. The velocity, the angle, the spread, everything.
  6. Yeah, probably around Carlos Martinez or wherever it's written about in the article. I made a point of mentioning it I believe.

    A fifth round pick I can understand complaining about, but an eighth round pick on a player who has the ability to contribute in all 5 categories, plays for a good line-up, in a great ballpark, and has competition that at least can be argued should give way for a superior bat... I'll gladly take santana over plenty of other "bleh" mid-round OFers.
  8. I didn't write up blurbs for catchers primarily because in a one catcher league the position really is primarily a crap shoot. I don't even know if I have much to say on Ramos... he posted a .307 22 HRs season and after a 9 month injury at the end of that season he posted a .260 BA and 11 HRs in limited time. Based on PAs alone and the last two years we should be looking at close to that .260/22 easily, as more of the baseline. I think Ramos could easily hit closer to .280/22 or higher again just like he did in 2016. A little BC and league specific for this thread-- if you wanna know just PM me and we can probably find the time to discuss it. -- In terms of an overall list of values I can come up with something soon.
  9. Jesse Winker 2018 Outlook

    I don't think anyone here is projecting his power specifically. I do think Winker has less power than most non-Speed options. But he has a potential .300 hit tool with a plus walk rate. Winker may only hits 15-20, but if it comes with a .280-.300 BA and a .370-.400 OBP, he'll at least be a really solid real life player. With the power explosion, if it maintains, it also makes 20 more likely.
  10. You're looking at a list produced in 2017.
  11. Trevor Story 2018 Outlook

    Again that depends on what you think of the players. I'm not willing to buy into DeJong sustianing his success at a high level or a good level with his PD. Not yet anyway.
  12. Trevor Story 2018 Outlook

    I'm not too interested in DeJong really. The risk may seem the same but DeJong doesn't walk or have as good of an eye.
  13. Trevor Story 2018 Outlook

    Yeah that's kinda where I'm at with Story too. I do see a bit more upside on the top as well, but the baseline if he plays a full season looks like it's .240/24/8, which isn't all that bad. A modest improvement to .260/30/10 makes him an easy top 100 player. I'm willing to buy back in.
  14. Jesse Winker 2018 Outlook

    They've said from the open they'll rotate all four. I dont' know if that means actual even playing time. I think the Reds should play Winker the most. I think he's the only one that has a really really solid shot at being a part of a team's future.
  15. Chicago Bears 2018 Offseason

    This dude is a FREAK. He may be legitimately one of the more gifted/talented players from a physical stand-point. To be clear not in like a refined pro-skills way, but I remember Lynch his Freshman year at Notre Dame and he was a MONSTER as a true freshman. Truly one of the most immediately impactful and freakish young athletes I had ever watched play a decent amount of time at 18-19. But just like he has concerns now--there's a reason he left Notre Dame. Dude seems to not really have the drive enough to get him there, so he's a wildcard that I don't have a lot of faith in. But if he can get the motor going and if they can get the most out of him he does have just a freak physical talent base.
