  1. Um, yes. Assuming he can figure out how to avoid the blister recurring and the MLB stops juicing the balls. He has as much upside as any SP in baseball imo.
  2. Luis Castillo getting rocked... his ridiculous schedule catching up to him?
  3. Hope none of you guys dropped him...
  4. I'm a Jays fan. I hate you all equally, but come on... Todd Frazier is washed up, offers nothing on the base paths, and is barely above the Mendoza line.
  5. Surprised nobody mentioned this:
  6. Robles is arguably a higher rated prospect than Torres It's definitely up for debate (note the word arguably) as to which player you would consider more valuable but both are usually top 5 on prospect lists... you're missing the point of my argument that the Nats aren't going to trade an elite prospect for a 3 month rental in JDM. The Chapman trade was derided at the time and will ultimately end up being an outlier in my opinion.
  7. A trade which was widely regarded as a massive overpay, but they won the WS so the point is moot. Chapman filled a very specific need and was the best closer in the game at the time. Robles is arguably a higher rated prospect than Torres, and the Cubs' system was loaded. Do the Nats really need another power bat? They would be better served moving Robles for an elite closer if that's what the market is going to dictate.
  8. Trading Robles for a few months of JDM would be such a ridiculously short-sighted trade, I have no idea what you're basing your opinion on.
  9. Big W in Fenway. Hopefully this is the beginning of some kind of run.
  10. I thought Washington was adamant they weren't trading Robles... not sure what kind of package Detroit would have to give up to get a prospect like Robles but I'm guessing it would have to include JDM and Verlander. Seems farfetched to me.
  11. Pay the man! Seems like a good value at 5.06 when a guy like Kelce is going at 4.02. (ADPs from fantasyfootballcalculator standard scoring.)
  12. Beat writers generally have absolutely no clue when it comes to making projections. Also "and while the Minneapolis Star Tribune's Matt Vensel believes the Vikings might not ask him to take on 300 carries as a rookie, Vensel will also not rule it out." is just click-baity garbage, surprised FBG would post this.
  13. This is all I could find but I don't see a reason why the team wouldn't get him back out there immediately. On Tuesday, Pittsburgh outfielder Starling Marte is eligible to return from an 80-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs. He is expected to be slotted in left field, with Andrew McCutchen remaining in center and Gregory Polanco in right. “That’s going to give us a boost,” Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer said of Marte’s return.
  14. Drive/fly home. If that's not possible; Skype/Facetime, have a proxy for you at the live draft you're constantly in touch with... give him some default rankings if you lose connectivity for some reason.
  16. Trust the tape. Don't worry about the numbers.
  17. So did you pick up Quintana?
  18. Yeah it's just weird to come into the Seager thread and say "but... Correa is better!" Nobody was suggesting he wasn't, and at this point you're splitting hairs.
  19. What? Correa was drafted ahead of Seager both this year and last.
