  1. Gavin Lux - SS/2B LAD

    Ya, I don't think Lux is a top 10 prospect yet. On real prospect lists, he has emerged on many top 100's. Arguably on fantasy lists where defence is not a priority, he would rank a lot higher. There is some debate that he will move off SS to 2B, which would put more pressure on his bat, which is why I believe he is not higher on those non-fantasy top 100's. Presuming he will start at AA next year, which if he continues on the same path as this year would put him on the verge of a call-up potentially at some point next season.

    Well, Betts apparently felt soreness in his side so it probably isn't a bad thing to give him a night or two off. Our fantasy teams aside, haha, the last thing the Red Sox want is him to aggravate it further in a nothing game.
  3. Trevor Story 2018 Outlook

    Crazy thought, but if it is a throwing thing then maybe he could play 1B and Desmond shift to SS (or play Hampson there). Ohtani has DH'd with UCL damage and has still been really productive. I know there was some issues he felt swinging, so maybe the situation is different but if they can give him a cortisone shot and let him sit for a few days to see if the inflammation goes down. Maybe not enough time for this, but wonder if this was a possibility if it took place a few weeks ago.
  4. 9/8 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Robertson came in a non-save situation last game, now in the 8th tonight. Sure looking like Betances is the guy.
  5. September Closer Thread 2018

    So is Betances now the guy to own?
  6. Miguel Andujar 2018 Outlook

    Anyone see why he came out of the game?
  7. Michael Kopech - P CHW

    A single tear rolls down each eye.
  8. Nothing but crickets at this point. Surprised he has not generated more interest, but seems like there really has not been much of any market/rumors for Mouse.

    Very Giambi like.
  10. 9/4 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Ick. Sano just carted off. Didn't look good.
  11. Andrew Benintendi 2018 Outlook

    He's for sure been struggling so sitting him against the lefty may make some sense rather than seeing him get more frustrated with his ABs. Was wondering if they may flip him and Kinsler in the lineup even before tonight. Unfortunately, if Kinsler continues to hit and Beni doesn't this could be a lineup you see moving forward.

    Congrats to Peter Alonso on a fantastic MiLB year and putting himself firmly on the fantasy radar for 2019. Also, a BIG thank you for @brockpapersizer for starting this thread and being one of the first on the bandwagon all the way to the end of the year. Glad I jumped on board early. Thanks again.

    If he can close out the season the way he's hitting now, he'll be moving up draft boards next year. Has looked much closer to his '16 year since the trade with full-time playing time.
  14. Deivi Garcia - RHP NYY

    Wowsas! Didn't realize they promoted him. Incredible year for the kid, he's going to be rocketing up lists.
  15. Chris Sale 2018 Outlook

    Article from Mass Live said he was not going to throw today. From the article: Red Sox ace Chris Sale (shoulder inflammation) has a return date from the disabled list in mind. He threw for the fifth straight day here Friday at Guaranteed Rate Field. He long tossed approximately 100-120 feet. "We're just strengthening now and building up to make a start," Sale said. Sale should be able to make multiple starts in the regular season before the postseason begins, Red Sox manager Alex Cora confirmed. "Probably he'll be an opener sometimes," Cora joked. That's not totally a joke though. The minor league season ends in early September. So Sale likely will pitch just a couple innings in his first start like an opener (a role the Rays began using this season). "The way it's going right now, whenever he gets on the mound he's going to move fairly quick," Cora said. "Obviously we have to build him up. But as you guys know there's not too (many) innings in the minor leagues. And we're going to have to do it at the big league level." Sale won't throw Saturday. The Red Sox still must discuss his next step. It potentially will be a bullpen session. Sale said he will pitch off a mound "soon." Based on the above, I'm not sure you will get a start from him this week but it is possible I guess. In weekly settings, like mine, too much risk there that he won't start, imo.
  16. Jalen Beeks 2018 Outlook

    I think the projection is back-end starter. Obviously, he 'could' turn into a Fantasy SP2, but far too early to anoint that kind of upside on him.
  17. Andrew McCutchen 2018 Outlook

    Good move for the Yanks. Would not be putting much faith in relying on Cutch to really help me down the stretch.
  18. Jose Ramirez 2018 Outlook

    Yep, he's been bad, but even on his 'bad' days he still seems to put up some counting stats. There was due to be some regression, still killing it. Ride out the slump and enjoy the next hot streak.
  19. 8/29 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Any update on Segura?
  20. August Closer Thread 2018

    Giving up all these runs can't be good for his heart.
  21. SP Jesus Luzardo, OAK

    Mentioned above. Thought this might be coming. Just hoping it's due to IP and not an injury. Kid has put himself squarely in the conversation as one of the best SP prospects.
  22. Chris Paddack - SP SD

    Pads have rightly shut him down for the ROS due to IP limit. What a year for this kid. Put himself squarely in the conversation as one of the top SP prospects in the game. Could be in the majors at some point next season.
  23. Peter Alonso 1b NYM

    Agree, that quote should read AGM remarked , 'we already have too many first base types (though none produce beyond a replacement level for us and most have had plenty of ABs to show us what they are capable for producing. Instead our organization is one that likes to make sure we have a hand full of turds rather than giving our young kids a chance to show the organization if we can build around them and give our fan base some hope for the future. Why do that?!' he exclaimed.
  24. Deivi Garcia - RHP NYY

    Both of you make good points. I think, right now, we have a young kid that is producing. His off-speed pitches seem to be getting guys to swing and miss albeit against guys that are more prone to swing and miss and being aggressive. I also think that we need to see what he does against more advanced competition in AA before we will see him moving up prospect lists. @FouLLine and @garlando have identified a young talent and I am with them that it's better to be early than late on his stock, but how much the stock ultimately goes up is still TBD.
  25. Deivi Garcia - RHP NYY

    Looked good again tonight. 5IP, 0ER, 8Ks lowers his microscopic High A ERA to 1.27 over 5 starts.
