  2. The Axe Elf BattleVote Questions

    I have to thank @Axe Elf for running this last year. It was fun looking over my picks to see what my thoughts were before last season (lol at me picking Jamaal Charles over David Johnson). I think I speak for most when saying it would well worth it for this or something like this to be set up next season (even without a prize) as its a thought provoking and worthwhile exercise.
  3. Call Up Watch Thread

    Although my interpretation may be completely incorrect, I've interpreted it as. Purchased/Selected Contract- Added to 40-man from minors (this article uses "select" with adding to 40-man) Called up- Added to 25-man from 40-man for the first time Recalled - Added to 25-man from 40-man for the second time and after.
  4. Josh Gordon 2017 Season Outlook

    He's the first NFL Reciever to ever have back to back 200 yard games and he did it with Brandon Weeden as his QB. WR1 Upside.
  5. Colton Welker - 3B COL

  6. Prospects to grab for next year?

    He was a solidly in the back half of many top 100 lists during his minor league career, but that's besides the point of prospects not breaking camp in order for the club to preserve service time. If they were a September callup like Judge was then there's no point in keeping them in the minors in March if they are good enough. If they're not a September callup but good enough for the big club, they'll be called up two weeks in the season like Bryant and Bellinger were instead of directly after spring training.
  7. Prospects to grab for next year?

    Judge was a September Callup in 2016. Him tasting camp wasn't his first taste of big league experience.
  8. 2017 Middle Relievers Thread

    Jose Alvarado threw an immaculate inning last night and is an interesting RP prospect to begin with.
  9. Ike Anigobu 6'10" center with a 7'6" wingspan out of UCLA drafted by the Pacers with the 47th pick in the draft. Very high upside player but also extremely raw; he turns 19 in late October. There seems to be contrasting opinions on him from various NBA prospect sites. Most notably are DraftExrpress ranking him 15th overall (with OG Anunoby ahead of him and Justin Jackson behind him) and nbadraft.net ranking him 45th (behind Jonah Bolden and in front of Alec Peters). Some positive comments on him: A set of negative comments on him:
  10. 2017 Middle Relievers Thread

    Pardon my lack of sources, but I remember him on the Red Sox as a SP with big stuff but couldn't put it all together enough to remain a SP. It looks like his stuff is still there and it should be easier to manage as a reliever.

  12. Garlando's Mid-Season Fantasy Prospect Rankings

    Mondesi lost his prospect status because of the at bats he had last season.
  13. One of my leagues is in need of an active owner to replace an inactive team. It is an extremely active and competitive and, evidently, the rosters are deep. Each year MLB players drafted by real teams in June and International players who sign their contract between October 2016 and October 2017 are drafted by our fantasy teams in November. The team is currently in 14th place and is being managed by the commissioner and deputy commissioner. Basic Details: It is a 16 team league H2H league run on Fantrax. The starting roster is 22 roster spots large, with an 11 player bench, 50 player minor league system, and 8 player DL. Each season before our first year player draft, we can keep up to 83 players. A team's starting lineup consists of: 1 spot for each hitting positions (Catcher, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, INF, LF, CF, RF, OF, DH, Utility) 3 spots for starting pitchers 6 spots for relief pitchers 1 additional spot for either a starting pitcher or reliever. During the offseason, teams can designate 4 players for DH eligibility. Only DH eligible players can be played at the DH spot. It is not the equivalent of a utility. Categories: Hitting Categories are: Doubles, Errors, Game Winning RBI, Home Runs, RBI, Runs, Sac Flies, Singles, Steals, Strikeouts, Triples, Walks, and Batting Average Pitching Categories are: Blown Saves, Games Started, Holds, Losses, Quality Starts, Saves, Strikeouts, Wins, Batting Average Against, ERA, Hits per Inning Pitched, Walks per 9 Innings. Teams must reach 50 Innings Pitched and 7 Games started weekly or else they will automatically lose their pitching categories. Draft/Minors: Each year during the offseason, we hold a draft on the message boards for the players drafted in MLB's June Rule IV draft and the previous year's international signers. There are 8 rounds in total each lasting 16 picks long (since it is a 16 team league). All draft picks are allowed to be traded. You must have an open roster spot in order to draft a player. There is a 24 hour clock for each team's pick, however, most teams don't take this long. If a team runs out of time, can't free a roster spot to draft a player, or simply decides cutting a player for the draft pick isn't worth it, the pick can be skipped. Draft picks are optional, so if you feel as an owner the player you would have to cut is better than the one you're drafting, you don't have to make a pick. No player from MLB's June draft can be picked up until we do our fantasy draft. All players from previous draft years that are FAs and signed international players who signed who are not draft eligible can be picked up as well. Essentially, most players signed to an MLB contract can be added. This team only has its own 4th through 8th round picks this season. The previous owner decided to trade some away, but more can be traded for if desired. Any hitter who has had less than 260 at bats or played in less than 90 games is eligible to placed in your minors. Any pitcher who has played in less than 90 games or has pitched less than 100 regular season innings is eligible to be placed in your minors. If a player has exceeded this limits, regardless if they are in the minors in real life, they can not be put on your fantasy minors. Available Team's Roster: C: Russell Martin 1B: Brandon Moss 2B: Jonathon Schoop 3B: Josh Donaldson (DH eligible) SS: Erick Aybar INF: Lucas Duda LF: Alex Presley CF: Byron Buxton (DH eligible) RF: Steven Souza (DH eligible) OF: Shin-Soo Choo DH: Kendrys Morales Utility: Jose Bautista (DH eligible) Bench: Carlos Santana, Pablo Sandoval SPs: Ricky Nolasco, Jeff Samardzija, Josh Tomlin, Jordan Montgomery, Jamie Garcia, Jeremy Hellickson, Martin Perez, Ervin Santana, Zach Eflin, Tanner Roark, Edinson Volquez RPs: Kyle Barraclough, Cam Bedrosian, Pedro Baez, Joe Kelly, Corey Knebel, Hunter Strickland, Nick Wittgren DL: Jonathon Villar, Ryan Braun, Charlie Morton, Hector Santiago Minor League Hitters: Shedric Long, C, Cin Bradley Jones, 1B, Tor Jose Marmolejos, 1B, Was Eliezer Alvarez, 2B, Stl Dilson Hererra, 2B, Cin Chesny Young, 2B, Cin Jeimer Candelario, 3B, Chc Drew Ferguson, LF, Hou Jamie Romak, LF, NA Rafael Bautista, CF, Was Jacob May, CF, Chw Cedric Mullins, CF, Bal Victor Jose Reyes, CF, Ari Magneuris Sierra, CF, Stl Micker Adolfo, RF, Chw Lazaro Armenteros, RF, Oak Dylan Davis, RF, SF Johnan Mieses, RF, Lad Franmil Reyes, RF, Sd Luke Tendler, RF, Tex Scott Heineman, OF, Tex Cody Thomas, LF, LAD Minor League Pitchers: Steven Brault, SP, pit Seranthony Dominguez, SP, Phi Carlos Hernandez, SP, Ari Michel Miliano, SP, SD Yefrey Ramirez, SP, NYY Spencer Adams, P, CHW Andrew Anderson, P, Phi Ian Clarkin, SP, NYY P.J.

Stay active, adjust your lineups daily, and try and keep messages in the chatbox PG. We have a great group of owners and you'll fit right in if you love baseball like the rest of us. It is preferred that you know a lot about prospects. I pretty much only knew about guys who frequently appeared on top-100 lists but you have to go much deeper than that in this league. There are about 800 prospects owned in total in this league and it tests how much you know about players in the minors. If you don't know that much about prospects but you're willing to learn, you'll get the hang of it if you put in the time and effort that is required. A full list of all of the league's rules can be found here. Contact: Please email Rivrcubs@gmail.com if you are interested in joining the league. That is the commissioners email address, not my own. If you tell him you are interested in taking over the team then he'll ask you a few questions and let you in if he feels you'll be a good owner. I look forward to possibly playing with you. Thanks for reading.
  14. Dynasty League, Correa and Arenado Trade? WHIR

    I don't see how you benefit from doing this deal. Correa (22) > Arenado (26) Springer (27) > Kluber (31) Unless you're in contention this year and you really need the offensive upgrade, I don't see a purpose in doing this deal. You're significantly shortening your timeline for contention for this deal as Kluber is nearing the end of his prime and Correa was a top 10 player at age 20 after being called up. Last year was disappointing but he'll be unbelievable in his prime.
