  1. 2018 First Rounders Discussion

    Well I only listed 9 names there. That leaves room for 3 SP in the 1st round, if people choose. To me they’re definitely part of that next tier, any of which could go 10-12.

    Lol *saved for posterity Picking a career minor leaguer who will be 30 next season to finish ahead of Mookie again is bold. Looking forward to revisiting this one. As for 1st rounders, seems Trout Altuve Goldy is a pretty safe top tier. Then it seems there’s a *consensus next ~5/6 with Arenado Bryce Mookie Blackmon Votto Stanton Then I think there’s literally about 15 guys I’d consider in the next tier and could see going in any number of directions. You always want the top picks anyway, but getting one of those top 3, plus possibly 2 of these guys in “tier 3” is pretty sexy in standard snake drafts.

    Why lie? Show me where I called them superior to Mike Trout. I said they finished ahead of him on ESPN Player Rater. That’s a fact.

    ESPN player Rater disagrees with you. How about Whit Merrifield? Have you realized how pointless this exercise is yet, or nah? Every year guys come out of nowhere and finish top 25. That’s what wins you leagues. Your 1st round pick finishing 27th doesn’t kill you. This has been explained ad nauseam.

    Elvis Andrus outperformed Trout this year. Fact! This is fun. Should we do some more??

    It appears there are guys on the board who play in roto 1 x 1 leagues where just OPS counts. I guess I see where you’re coming from if the 24 HR/26 SB didn’t help you. Maybe consider updating your categories? 😂😂

    We all know Mookie had a power outage. You hang onto that OPS. We’ll check back in at the end of next season. 👍🏼
  9. 2018 Keeper/Dynasty League Offseason Trade Targets

    @tonycpsu brought up some aged veterans who could be solid targets, what about young guys who might be able to be had below market value? What is Buxton? .255/16/28 as a 23 year-old. If you’ve got a guy who has held for years, he may be tired of waiting. Might be able to pounce if the price is right. What about Corey Seager or Andrew Benintendi? Might seem odd, but they appear to be getting a “better in real life than fantasy” tag. I’d have to hear from owners, but I wonder if these guys could be had. Not necessarily at a discount, but the fact they’re tradeable when at one point they probably weren’t.

    In ESPN they’re fairly close on overall value. I think ESPN appropriately values SBs, considering they’re down quite a bit this season. Just different weighting I suppose.

    Mookie is 29th overall, Rizzo 33rd in ESPN Player Rater for 5 x 5. Judge was exposed and has hit .216 since the break. He will not go before Mookie in any competitive league. The last part I won’t even touch. No idea who hurt you in your life to make you so angry and defensive on every post on a fantasy baseball message board. You think your opinion is right and mine is wrong, and those couple spots different in our opinions is a “terrible take.” Time to re-evaluate some things in your life, brother. ✌🏼

    Judge has been Khris Davis for the 2nd half of the season. Lol at anyone who takes him in the top 15. Mookie, at what was an awful year according to all you guys, finished ahead of Rizzo, Machado, Bellinger, Bryant this year. Why would I drop Mookie below them exactly? I think Trout, Altuve, Goldy are the clear top 3. After that Mookie could go anywhere. Somewhere between 5-9 I’d say.
