  1. Actually just added Frias in my 20 team dynasty league, as you said a deeper dive but he's definitely a guy to watch. Within the organization he went from unranked to #16 this year. This is some of MLB.com's write up on him - a part I left out: he started his career as a 3B! "Frias is an imposing presence on the mound and heavier than his listed weight of 180 pounds, but he's also athletic for his size and has very loose arm action. There is effort in his delivery, however, and he'll struggle to repeat it at times, but club officials are quick to note the gains he's made on that front early in his career, and especially in 2019. There's impact starting pitcher upside if Frias can continue to refine his mechanics, develop a more consistent third pitch and refine his overall command. If not, the big right-hander could become a dynamic late-inning reliever with his fastball-curve combo."
  2. I'm looking for new owners to take over teams in this 20-team keeper league -- the league has been around for about 10 years with a consistent core group of owners. The amount of teams may be reduced to 18 next season if there are insufficient amount of owners. You can change your team name if you take over a team, as long it's within the conference. The same owners are also in our fantasy baseball league and we mainly use Discord to communicate since it has a desktop and phone app. Someone who could be active on the chat would be appreciated! The basics of the league are: IDP rosters, Full Keeper, 1/2 PPR, offline draft, etc. Let me know if you're interested. If so, leave your e-mail address and the team you'd like to take over. I've listed the teams that are available and their draft position in this years rookie draft: Chicago Bears (14) http://fantasy.espn.com/football/team?leagueId=40529525&teamId=18 Atlanta Falcons (3) http://fantasy.espn.com/football/team?leagueId=40529525&teamId=19
  3. He is now #18 in MLBs updated organizational list for SF. Think he's a guy to watch! "Labour's carrying tool is his plus raw power to all fields. His chances of maximizing his home run production are enhanced by his feel to hit from the right side of the plate. He makes consistent hard contact, manages the strike zone well and doesn't get too pull-conscious. While most of Labour's value comes from his offense, he's a decent athlete who makes up for his below-average speed with his instincts. He provides average range and arm strength on the outfield corners. He also earns praise for his intelligence and is fluent in both English and Spanish."
  4. Damn my bad @brockpapersizer haha
  5. I would be excited if there were more consistancy to his game. I looked at his season numbers last night and while the K's are nice hes not that consistant - it looks like some games he gets as low as 2 K's and seem to average around 5? Also he will need to improve his walk rate but with that said, he's young so hopefully he works it all out.
  6. After being brought up in the Deep Sleepers thread I think this guy deserves his own post. While catching prospects are very hard to predict - along with the Padres system being loaded with catchers, I think Campusano can make a name for himself for the Padres, or be traded to another team with a void at the position. For some background on him.... "The Padres selected Campusano in the second round of the 2017 MLB Draft. He debuted in full season ball last season, slashing .288/.345/.365 with 3 home runs (106 wRC+) in 70 games and 284 plate appearances at Low-A Fort Wayne. The 20-year-old made the jump to High-A Lake Elsinore this season, and he’s exploded. Thru 311 plate appearances, Campusano is slashing .328/.394/.511 with 11 home runs and nearly as many walks (36) as strikeouts (45). The current 153 wRC+ sits second among ALL hitters in the Cal League, and the 27.6 Hard% (h/t Rotowire) suggests the statistical output is no fluke." - Ray Butler of Prospect 365
  7. I'm sure he's been mentioned at some point, slightly surprised he dosen't have his own thread yet based on how well he's done. Anyone that I've listened to (Podcasts) seems to love this guy and I'd have to agree. Seems like an all around solid catching prospect. Just picked him up in my main dynasty league a few weeks ago. He should be available in most leagues still.
  8. Ranked as #21 of the top 30 Prospects for the Rockies, this guy has been lights out this season. Granted he's old for AA at 25, was drafted in the 30th round in the 2016 draft, and is undersized...he's currently leading the Eastern League in all three pitching triple crown cats. with 8 wins, 1.88 ERA, and 85 strikeouts over 67 IP this season. Does anyone have any thoughts on this guy? Just a future relief pitcher that happens to be doing very well at the moment, or is he someone we can see actually pitching 185-200 innings a year?
  9. How do we think he transitions from Japan to the MLB? He is only 27 and has had pretty consistent stats over his career in Japan. Per. David Adler "Kikuchi's fastball averages around 92-94 mph, and he can reach 96-98 mph at times. That's not only unusual velocity among NPB left-handers, it's also above-average for the Major Leagues. In 2018, the average fastball velocity among left-handed MLB starters was 91.4 mph. Kikuchi's main secondary pitch is a slider. Along with his fastball-slider combination, he also mixes in a curveball and changeup. As MLB.com's Jon Paul Morosi reported this past summer, multiple MLB scouts believe that Kikuchi has the ceiling of a No. 2 starter in the Major Leagues. He doesn't have the superstar expectations that countrymen like Ohtani, Yu Darvish and Masahiro Tanaka carried, but he could slot into the middle of an MLB rotation."
  10. Hitting 6-15 with 1 R and 1 RBI over the last 4 games since coming back from the DL....maybe the start of something?
  11. Hey everyone, I am in a dynasty league that has an opening in both our football and baseball leagues. It's a 20 team dynasty that has been around for 8 years with a consistent core of owners who chat every day using Discord. The basic settings for the football league are: non-ppr, QB/RB/RB/WR/WR/TE/FLEX with IDPs. The available team is named the Atlanta Falcons. See link: http://games.espn.com/ffl/clubhouse?leagueId=38566&teamId=19&seasonId=2018 The settings for baseball are pretty straightforward. 1 player at each position with a UTIL spot with a 7 pitcher start limit per. week. Each team also has a 10 spot minor league roster. You don't NEED to know a ton about minor leaguers but some knowledge would be great to come in with. The Atlanta Braves are the available team. See link: http://games.espn.com/flb/clubhouse?leagueId=5031&teamId=14&seasonId=2018 We are looking for an owner with a solid knowledge of both football and baseball who can be chat active. We also would like someone who could take on both teams - just to have the same owners in both leagues. If you're interested or have any questions feel free to shoot me a message below or text me at 717.440.4465.
