  1. I couldn’t help but notice that Mauricio started Friday and Saturday with the big league Mets in ST games. That says a lot about how they view the 17 year old.
  2. I literally checked to make sure today wasn’t April 1st... #kickintheballs
  3. I’m not 100% sure about his struggles being injury related but it is certainly an interesting correlation. I think he’s a guy that could return some value with a cheap investment though. The odds of him ever being the Jake Arrieta of old are slim. I do think he can bounce back if he’s healthy. He’s always been a workout warrior...he takes care of his body.
  4. Well he did have a 1.17 and a 1.13 WHIP in April and May last year...pre-injury.
  5. I think Lester and Arrieta are about the same guy fantasy wise. Lester seems to be carrying a little more perceived value but it’s definitely pretty close. I have them as my 6th and 7th SPs in my main league and I’m pretty comfortable with that setup. These guys have the potential to throw a bunch of innings and that’s important in the current baseball landscape.
  6. The main thing I like about Arrieta is the price. He’s going undrafted in some leagues...like my main league. I scooped him up for free. I wouldn’t advocate taking him super early but I do think he’s a top 50 SP with a solid track record. He was pretty good in April last year and then had a dominant May (0.90 ERA) before getting hurt in June. It looks like the knee injury derailed him last year.
  7. Good point on Nola. He actually looked pretty good in ST until his most recent start.
  8. So the fact that Jake Arrieta doesn’t have a thread says a whole lot to me. I think people are writing him off entitlely too early. He could be the Opening Day starter for one of the best teams in the NL. He pitched with a knee injury last year and is now healthy. His spring stats aren’t great but does anyone care about that? I’m a buyer on Arrieta. I think his price is so low now that there’s basically no risk. Anyone else think there’s something to see here?
  9. Keston Hiura NL ROY Cutch goes 20-20 Yu Darvish NL Cy Young Amed Rosario goes 15-30...Top 5 SS Francisco Mejia is the #2 catcher behind Realmuto Franmil hits 30 HRs and bats over .285 Acuna 40-40
  10. I said the same thing to one of my friends. I guess it's better to throw too many strikes at this point of his career, but I'd like to see him scale that back a bit when he needs to. He definitely works quick and challenges hitters though.
  11. Well, the would be great for 2019. That should allow him to start the season in the majors!
  12. Paddack looked great. Gave up a bloop double to Trout but his mix of pitches looked great...even without a ******* radar gun! That changeup is the real deal.
  13. Personally, I'm moving Darvish up to the 100ish spot...he's in the Mikolas, Morton, Tanaka tier to me. His K potential is huge.
  14. Is anyone else starting to get the feeling that Pete might be better than we give him credit for?
  15. $7 ...just kidding. There is no way to just give a number on a guy without knowing the league context and other factors. I will say that Luzardo’s value should be surging in all formats right now. It’s very clear that he’s ready to be successful in the majors. Life is tough for young arms but I do think he is very exciting.
