  1. Julio Jones 2018 Outlook

    I am definitely not some Julio truther, but given that he finished 7th last year in PPR points despite scoring 3 TDs... a move to 6 TDs would mean he 'd rank around the top 3-4 WR like he's being drafted.
  2. Deshaun Watson 2018 Outlook

    Similar thoughts on pairing with Winston or Goff who are going later even. Despite watson's late bye, I am definitely rostering a back-up. Houston's OLine is brutal, so the risk for injury is high. I also want to protect against the unlikely (imo) RG3 possibility - that is that Watson simply isn't the same guy after the knee injury even if it's short term. I personally believe Watson needs his legs to get the favorable coverages that drove his success. I don't think he can make it as a pocket passer without that threat yet.
  3. Alfred Morris 2018 Outlook

    This is probably true. With Williams cut, they are probably looking at other teams cut lists for a passing down back at least to use with Breida. To me, I always thought Morris had potential for standalone value. The 49ers goaline options are limited. Goodwin and Garcon aren't "go up and get it" types. Breida isn't a bull. Kittle maybe? I think Morris will see a ton of work in goal to go situations for a team that should be fairly proficient.
  4. August Closer Thread 2018

    I don't see it. Trivino has been great and they haven't done that with Trienen. Other than Buchter, A's have no other LHPs in the pen.... that's Rodney's role.
  5. Deivi Garcia - RHP NYY

    I am pretty confident at this point that the Yankees have some weird Latin pitcher factory. Garcia, Roansy Contreras, Luis Medina.... feels like a guy or two every year at this point.
  6. Victor Robles - OF WAS

    I do not agree with this assessment at all. Firstly, once Harper leaves, Robles will be marketed as the replacement. Rizzo, unlike basically no other GM, is aggressive with prospect call-ups. With Strasburg, Murphy, and Scherzer aging and the Phillies/Braves still very young, I anticipate the Nationals being aggressive in attempt to compete next year. The fact that Robles was brought up already last year also shows that they have thought he was ready for a while.
  7. 2018 MLB Trade Rumors and Deadline Thread

    Especially a pitching prospect. Baltimore is a pitching prospect graveyard.
  8. Peter Alonso 1b NYM

    I should have specified that it was the most impressive I have seen in-person. I wasn't in the stadium for most of Big Mac's juice-infused bombs, certainly none that stood out the way Alonso's did for the shear height and flight time.
  9. Peter Alonso 1b NYM

    @96mnc and I were at Nats Stadium for the game tonight and I think I had time for like 3 Wows before the ball landed. Never seen a ball hit like that in my life.
  10. Taylor Trammell - OF CIN

    Overdue for that AA promotion, so yeah, I'd say he sees it soon.
  11. Tim Tebow - NYM

    Its impossible to argue that Tebow hasn't gotten opportunities that exceed his skills. I originally said he would have no shot making the pros, but I definitely underestimated the willingness of baseball to push a player so devoid of the required talent as a money grab. I have nothing against Tim Tebow as a person. In fact, I think he's a genuinely good dude who has used his celebrity to benefit others in a way that many athletes do not. Unfortunately, that doesn't change the fact that he isn't a good enough baseball player to warrant much of the following he has received.
  12. SP Jesus Luzardo, OAK

    I think we're talking May 2019 as the first reasonable shot at promotion. Puk dominated in the spring and was being discussed as an opening day possibility, but more likely, they would have sent him down for some "fine tuning" and an extra year of team control. If Luzardo keeps dominating, I see a similar path for him.
  13. Juan Soto 2018 Outlook

    Soto was recalled on the 20th. Even if he were to gain an extra day of service time (which I seriously doubt), they would have no basis to give him the service time associated with May 16-19. Therefore, in your hypothetical scenario, Soto would need to be awarded the extra day AND the Super-2 timeline would need to magically fall on May 19 as well. I think it's already very possible that Soto makes the cut anyhow.
  14. Colton Welker - 3B COL

    Gleyber Torres had hit no more than 11 homers in the minors before this year. Simply put, the league trend is that players with good contact skills and batted ball profiles... as Welker clearly has... see a bump, often significant, coming to the majors with a juiced ball. That's before we even talk about the Coors effects.
  15. Jake Bauers 2018 Outlook

    I went back and watched all of his ABs so far. Kid definitely hits the ball hard. 60% hard contact rate so far (super SSS). He's more well built that I remember him being.
