  1. Freddie Freeman 2018 Outlook

    I think Freeman has as good of chance at finishing top 5 overall as any player outside of the 1st round. High floor / high ceiling. If you redrafted pre-injury Freeman would’ve been a top 5 pick. As lon lg as he’s healthy this spring I’ll be targeting him everywhere.
  2. Jose Ramirez 2018 Outlook

    You’ve brought up Betts in the past two threads I’ve clicked on and neither were Betts threads. Is your goal to sneak a potshot on Betts into every player thread in 2018?
  3. Man, Jose Ramirez is so slept on. Age 23: #29 overall hitter Age 24: #7 overall hitter, #1 overall 3B Yet that list has him as the #60 overall dynasty hitter and #13 dynasty 3B. Absolutely crazy
  4. The two-way player issue...

    can someone explain to me like im 5 why SP/UTIL isnt the far and away best option?
  5. Joey Gallo 2018 Season Outlook

    Again, this is such a lazy and weak comparison. Carter's career year was on par with Gallo's 1st full season at 23 years old. Try again.
  6. Joey Gallo 2018 Season Outlook

    I sometimes draft extra in a category to flip them to teams desperate for that category midseason. Maybe he was testing that strategy out? I don't really know but this isn't a draft philosophy thread. The point is that Joey Gallo is objectively more valuable than a last round pick. His early ADP was sitting at 106. https://www.fantrax.com/blog/fantrax-adp-mlb/fantrax-adp-mlb-3b/
  7. I think Tao could put his Jose Ramirez his resume. He was ahead of literally the entire industry on that breakout.

    You're more than welcome to not like Gallo. I'm saying that, objectively, his value his quite a bit higher than last round pick/WW material.
  9. Joey Gallo 2018 Season Outlook

    Well you're in the minority. Gallo is being taken in the top 150 virtually everywhere in mocks and as high as top 100. I saw him go 53 overall in a 5x5 CBS mock the other day. That's too high for me, but the point is calling him "not worth anything other than a final round selection of WW pickup" is silly to me. link to that CBS draft: https://www.cbssports.com/fantasy/baseball/news/fantasy-baseball-manny-machado-sneaks-into-first-round-of-rotisserie-mock-draft-to-close-out-winter-meetings/
  10. Luke Weaver 2018 Outlook

    If you love hype, then read this article: https://www.faketeams.com/2017/11/6/16607124/2018-player-profile-luke-weaver-starting-pitcher-sleeper In short, Weaver was good last year but his underlying numbers suggest he can be really good. Combing his high K rate with his ability to limit hard contact (3rd best in baseball) gives him ace potential.

    I think it'd be easier for you to say that you were just responding to hyperbole with hyperbole and that Gallo is worthy of a mid round selection rather than doubling down on Gallo not being a top 200 player.

    HRs, R, and RBIs are 3 of 5 categories in standard 5x5 leagues. Being elite in 1 and above average in two is more than a "one trick pony". -Chris Carter only surpassed 68 runs scored throughout his entire career. Gallo scored 85 runs in his first full season. -Carter's career season (2016) compares pretty evenly to Gallo's 23 year old season. -In Carter's career season (2016) he finished 155th on the player rater. Unless you're playing in really shallow leagues, the 155th player is more useful than a draft pick in the final round. Our 12 team league goes 24 rounds and that's 288 players drafted. And that's not taking into account the fact that Gallo's ceiling is much higher than Carter's career season. Gallo's projection is Carter's career year but his ceiling is considerably higher than that.

    It's not even that he's focused on average. I play in an average league where Gallo does hurt the category. However, the poster was neglecting Gallo's age and trends. April .213 May .202 June .162 July .213 August .246 September .220 5 of 6 months over .200. 4 of 6 months over .210. .229 over the second half of the season. This was also his age 23 season where he was noticeably better in the 2nd half. Steamer is buying the uptick in average and projecting .228. While .220-.230 still sucks, it hurts much less devastating than a guy hitting .200.
  14. Joey Gallo 2018 Season Outlook

    He had 85 runs and 80 RBIs as a 23 year old in his first full season the big leagues. He is an elite HR hitter but to call him a one trick pony is mistaken.
  15. Joey Gallo 2018 Season Outlook

    You aren't being very fair with this analysis. As bad has Gallo was in the AVG department, he only hit under .200 one month of the season. He also had a pretty solid 2nd half. (2nd half) 201 AB .229 20 HRs 38 R 39 RBI 2 SB Steamer buys the uptick in average, pegging him at .228 and 39 HRs.
