    .... are you riding
  2. Victor Robles 2018 Outlook

    I've seen a lot of top prospects lists with Robles inside the top 10 & rightfully so, but most lists claim that he WILL contribute to the Nationals in 2018. With Juan Soto emerging, Taylor + Eaton playing quite well in their alotted playing time & Joey Gal- i mean Bryce Harper manning the 3rd OF slot, where would he even sniff PT? Unless they trade Taylor or Eaton or an injury occurs, Robles would be the 5th OFer at best. I just cant see there being a road to the Majors for Robles.
  3. Andrew Heaney 2018 Outlook

    Robbed of ANOTHER Win by the Angels bullpen. He still pitched pretty good & it was on the Road versus a team he just pitched to last week. Very good takeaways but I wish the pen held onto the W.
  4. July Closer Thread 2018

    Viz back on the DL - AJ Minter & Dan Winkler have both posted solid ratios, but Minter seems to be their preferred "fill-in closer" being as how he's gotten more SVs and SV opps. Both have been touched up a little bit lately but I'd definitely lean towards AJ Minter until proven otherwise.
  5. Jesse Winker 2018 Outlook

    I feel like this is an identical "scouting report" that we gave Brandon Nimmo. He never showed much power or speed but with his solid approach at the plate, guys like these can become VERY valuable to fantasy teams. I don't think Winker has as much speed as Nimmo but he's probably got a better Batting Avg & hits in a much better spot for RBI's. In my OPS league these guys are gold but both could develop into solid 5×5 options.
  6. Who you guys got to be a Fantasy asset in the 2nd half of 2018? Will Luke Weaver finally put it together... Will Shane Bieber & Freddy Peralta continue having success... Will Joey Luchessi return from his injury and learn how to pitch 6+ innings... Any Minor leaguers come up to have an impact... Will Whitley & Kopech improve enough to get the call? Just a few questions out of many... I'm curious who you guys have to post solid fantasy #s in the 2h??
  7. Wil Myers 2018 Outlook

    Another HR tonight & 2 SBs to boot... Lets just pray that he stays healthy bc the Power + Speed combo is lethal!
  8. Javier Baez 2018 Outlook

    This maniac looks like he could post a "Goldschmidt-esque" .285 35-100-25 as a 2B, SS, 3B !
  9. Jorge Polanco 2018 Outlook

    Snatched em up in my keeper. The PED suspension is concerning but if i recall correctly Melky Cabrera had a PED susp & raked upon his return so he may feel as though he has something to prove now. He's 23 right? He'll be SS/3B eligible & has solid speed and solid power, plus he's free off the WW. Gotta be an add now/ask questions later kinda guy. Far from a "lock" to do anything but he's a low-risk/high reward guy who could really "payoff" his owners in the 2nd half.
  10. Brandon Nimmo 2018 Outlook

    Only 1 hit since returning from his finger injury, maybe there's still some lingering discomfort? Nimmo's a gamer n would likely play with the pain but it may be affecting his swing. He could always just be in a mini slump, he's gone 1-17 with a bunch of K's and then had a blow up week, so maybe this is just simply 'par for the course' for Nimmo. With that said, I am happy the NYM's only have 5 games this week, at least it'll get him a little extra rest.
  11. Nick Kingham 2018 Outlook

    Great article! I really love everything they said & it justifies how bullish I've been on Kingham in my Keeper. So I've picked up and dropped this guy like 4x's now in my Keeper lol, but with that said I hope this is the last 'pickup'. I just hope he sticks in the majors. Hopefully he pitches well tonight & vs Philly later this week and Pittsburgh keeps him up. This article certainly showcases his upside, lets hope Mr. Kingham lives up to it!
  12. Shane Bieber 2018 Outlook

    His 2 Home starts were solid, so I am a bit concerned about him starting on the Road @ StL but i think you more or less have to start him - he's coming off a great game, he's got elite control, and at least there's no DH at an NL Park, plus Cleveland's offense should put him in a position to get a Win... Bieber fever shall commence as scheduled!
  13. Freddy Peralta 2018 Outlook

    This guy has been absolutely DOMINANT in 3 of his 4 starts, netting him 3 Wins & 35 K's in 22.2ip, he's ridiculous right now & I'm tickled to own him in a Keeper league. If he's still available in your league, go grab him immediately!
  14. Manuel "Manny" Margot 2018 Outlook

    After looking a bit deeper, I definitely need to change that assessment - in 12+ man league's he's a solid add if ur last guy isn't "great", in 10 or less he's a monitor very closely and/or add if my last bench spots weak, but in Keeper formats he's a MUST add. I didn't realize he's been 'this hot' for the last month, where he's hitting .329 with an OPS of .949 over that Month, he's been hot all month and now the power's coming too. Few players on the Wire can offer his upside in the HR/SB dept, if any. He seems to have found his stroke! Don't be too worried about the crowded OF, plain & simple - if he keeps hitting, he'll keep playing.
  15. Manuel "Manny" Margot 2018 Outlook

    His bats waking up finally & yes there is a very crowded OF in SD, but when you have a talented player in a crowdes OF, these situations tend to work themselves out. Wil Myers is still injury prone and can play some 1st, Cordero has incredible talent but is coming back off an injury and may take time. Margot is far too talented to lose ABs if he's hitting. Now thats a huge "if" given his start to this year but maybe now that he seems to be seeing the ball better, all this "competition" in the OF will help light a fire under his a**. I'm keeping a CLOSE eye on him & another couple good games & I'm snatching him up, especially in my keeper.
