  1. What would you do?

    To me, this is a no brainer. I like the Mookie and Jack side, by a mile. Mookie is the best player in the deal, and you know what you're getting with him. His top tier talent is hard to come by, you don't know what you are going to get out of Acuna and Kingery. I'll take the Mookie in the bank, no question.
  2. What would you do?

    In what context? Keeper league? How many teams? Categories?
  3. 1 more keeper

    ABreg 💯
  4. Pick two out of three...

    JV and AN, no brainer
  5. Throw Machado Back?

    I guess I'm 11th overall in the 1st round, Yelich will likely fall to me after 24 players are kept...
  6. Throw Machado Back?

    Thanks for your help. I guess my hang up is I just don't see a huge difference in potential 2018 offensive production between Machado and Yelich. Yelich will likely have better OBP, more SB. Machado higher SLG. Runs and RBI will be pretty close between the 2, slight edge to Machado. I guess when you consider the scarcity of positions between 3B/SS and OF, Machado has the edge. Does it make a difference that it's a 4 OF league?
  7. Throw Machado Back?

    In my 12-team, 5x5 (OBP, SLG, R, RBI, SB) keeper league, I'm trying to decide whether or not to throw Manny Machado back. I would be keeping Christian Yelich instead. This would be the last season of keeper eligibility for Machado. I'd have to throw him back next season. I could potentially keep Yelich for the next 3 seasons. We only keep 2 out of 30 players, and my other keeper is going to be Alex Bregman, whom I could keep for the next 3 seasons as well. Machado's value has gone up with his likely move to shortstop, and Yelich's value has gone up as well with his move to Milwaukee. Thanks for your feedback!
  8. Keep Bumgarner or Bregman?

    I really appreciate the feedback guys. I personally consider our league more of a redraft league because we are only keeping 24 players (2 per team), so the Bumgarner argument isn't outlandish at all. I guess the real problem is that I'm afraid if I throw Bregman back he develops into superstar status, and I have to live knowing I gave up a player I could have had control over for 3 more seasons. If I do keep Machado and Bumgarner it's not the end of the world, I just need to keep 2 different players I inherit this season because their contracts are up. Another scenario I'm starting to think about now is throwing Machado back this season and holding onto Bumgarner and Bregman. Since it's a contract year for Machado, I have more confidence in his 2018 than Bumgarner's velocity dip. Thanks again, really excellent discussion so far. Happy to comment on others.
  9. 0%, no way. Bregman is going to be a superstar.

    Fwiw, we have 30-man rosters with the following positions to fill: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, IF, OFx4, U RPx2, Px5 thanks again

  14. Manny Machado 2018 Outlook

    I wouldn't go as far as calling these analysts stupid, they're analysts for a reason (let's hope so), and they do raise a valid concern. I get it, major surgeries on both knees, switching to a position that requires more physical demand, seems logical. BUT he is a few years removed from these surgeries, and has been a gamer ever since. I vote draft him with full confidence, with the hopeful shortstop eligibility as a bonus, not a burden. Bottom line, 3 years of 156+ games is a decent enough track record to be confident, and if something happens, chalk it up to bad luck. His top 5 upside is worth every penny in my opinion.
  15. Manny Machado 2018 Outlook

    So tired of hearing about Machado's knees. Has played 156 or more games the past 3 seasons. He's fine. I'm hoping to draft him in as many leagues as possible this season with supreme confidence.
