  1. Jacob deGrom 2018 Outlook

    The Yankees dont have the prospects for DeGrom and they arent even offering the ones that would make it any where near close. Andujar started off well but has really faded, as a guy with poor pitch selection is likely to do in the majors. The league has caught up with him. The last 30 days, he is batting .231 with a .680 OPS He's also a lousy fielder. The Yankees know he's not the 3bman of the future I think a Clint Walker, Florial or Abreu, along with Cody Carroll , should get a Wheeler - but not a DeGrom.

    Lee Mazzilli for two prospects - Ron Darling and Walt Terrell in 1982 was a pretty great trade It was great in itself, but even more so when you add in Terrell being traded two years later for HoJo. I am reading that the Mets sent a scout to watch Justus Sheffield's start. Sheffield looks good but walks a ton of batters and he's small --> unlikely to be a top pitcher in the majors. I also dont like Andujar. He is a lousy fielder and he doesnt walk. The Yankees would be smart to trade him while the hype is on.

    it doesnt seem like anyone is offering an elite prospect. The white sox got an elite in Eloy Jimenez for Quintana and Dylan Cease was a good prospect. the yankees got Gleyber Torres and Clint Frazier for expiring contract relief studs. DeGrom is worth more than any of those guys. If Toronto was one SP away from being a contender, then we'd be talking Guerrero or Bichette plus but no one who would be the favorite with the addition of an elite SP even has an elite prospect (except the Astros) Hopefully the Mets arent going to trade DeGrom for Pat Zachry, Dan Norman, Steven Henderson and Doug Flynn

    not sure what to do with him tonight between a bad last start and arizona's hitters. probably going to leave him on the bench.

    maybe he'll be on the yankees by then

    yes sir. wish i grabbed him yesterday.
  7. Derek Dietrich 2018 Outlook

    Colorado should trade for him. He just hit .615 with a 2.1 OPS at Coors in 3 games, with 3 HR's, 2 doubles, 4 R, 4 RBI. Last year, he was 4 for 7 with two doubles

    DeGrom at his worst is still a QS.
  9. i think he didnt have particularly good aprils in 2015 and 2016 even after spring training. so it wouldnt be that surprising if he repeated that pattern. It's not so worrisome at this point

    Gsellman with the save tonight, flipped with familia. I doubt that means he's closing, but maybe on occasion. He was dropped in my league and i just swapped Peacock for him.

    Apr16 - Bryce Harper hits a first inning HR. only run through 7. Mets ahead 6-1. DeGrom gives up 2 singles (with a K in between) and comes out of the game. Lugo, Blevins, Ramos, Familia allow those two runners to score plus 4 more and lose the game Apr 21 - DeGrom pitches 7 shutout inning, Mets score in the top of the 8th to make DeGrom the winning pitcher, Mets. Familia loses the game in the 9th May 23 - DeGrom pitches 7 shutout inning, Familia blows the lead again. It's insane how well he has pitched this year and how hard the Mets have worked to blow his games.

    i dont see that i should like him any better in a wins league
  13. Nomar Mazara 2018 Outlook

    and he's been hitting them off good pitchers. May 2 - HR off Kluber May 4 - HR off Porcello - only run off him, one of 3 hits May 7 - HR off Fullmer

    And it turns out, most of those guys that seemed so promising havent been particularly valuable. Gsellman hasn't been so good lately, and even Peacock hasn't done much

    why? i'm not watching the game but from the boxscores, he seems like a stud. The Fangraphs article made me hesitate. I should have listened to Tao now i have to grab him before someone else does and i just have to figure out who to drop. I wish i dropped Castillo for him a month ago.
