  1. 2017-2018 Off-season and Hot Stove Thread

    This kinda reminds me of what the Tigers did a few years back with David Price. They acquired him in a deadline deal from the Rays when he had a season and change left on his contract. They got him for Willy Adames and Nick Franklin, then flipped him during the following years deadline for Daniel Norris, Matt Boyd. Although Adames' stock has increased and Norris' has decreased since the trades, the Tigers ultimately didn't have to pay much for a calendar year of David Price.
  2. New York Yankees 2018 Outlook

    It's not necessarily that 28 is old. It's just that they would have more "prime" years if signed to 10 year deals next offseason. With Stanton, the Yankees are getting his age 28-38 seasons. With Machado and Harper, a team would be getting their age 26-36 seasons. I would much rather take Machado's or Harper's age 26-27 seasons rather than Stanton's age 37-38 ones. If Harper or Machado sign for ~$400M then my point on Stanton's contract being obscene is weak. While possible, I don't think a team will give up this much money unless they defer part of it like the Nats did with Scherzer.

    Not really. Considering it only took Kaprielian, Mateo, and Fowler to get 2.5 years of Gray, something among the lines of Frazier, Medina, and Thairo Estrada could definitely get done for 3 years of Stroman.

    Jacoby is owed a minimum of $68M for the rest of his contract but the Yankees got back $35M from the Stanton trade. The Marlins paying off half of Ellsbury's deal with the Yankees paying full price for Stanton is another way of looking at this deal.
  5. New York Yankees 2018 Outlook

    As a Yankees fan, it's great that Stanton was acquired to strengthen a World Series contending team, but this trade isn't nearly as nearly as much of a steal as it seems. Forbes has the Yankees having a team value of $3.7 billion. Stanton is being acquired for 265 million. ~7% of the Yankees entire value is being tied up to one player. Best case scenario, the Yankees get 3-4 prime years of Stanton, where he plays at an all-star level or better, and then becomes an average regular until inevitably playing below replacement value. At the very least, the Yankees are paying Stanton $25M+ per year until he's 39. Without a doubt, this contract will be Pujols-esque or worse. Having Stanton's mega deal will likely prevent them from going after Machado or Harper, who the Yankees would get two more prime years out of as 26 year olds. Additionally, Machado and Harper would likely sign for less money than Stanton's contract is worth, considering how unimaginable it would be for teams to fork up that much cash. Essentially, the Yankees inherited an obscene financial burden, and gave up an All-Star 2nd baseman (Castro) and a top 100 prospect (Guzman) only because they're too impatient for 2018 free agency. This isn't that great of a trade.

  9. How Do You Evaluate Rookies for Dynasty?

Kyle- Josh Jackson, SF, PHX 5. Shane (via Micah)- Dennis Smith Jr., PG, DAL 6. Oh- Jayson Tatum, SF, BOS 7. Micah (via Shane)- Jonathan Issac, SF, ORL 8. Scott- Zach Collins, C, POR 9. Kyle (via Mike)- Lauri Markkanen, PF, CHI 10. Max (via Kevin)- Malik Monk, SG, CHA 11. BPatz- Justin Jackson, SF, SAC 12. Ben- Frank Ntilikina, PG, NYK 13. Henry- Jarett Allen, C, BRK 14. David- Bam Adebayo, PF/C, MIA Round 2 1. David- D.J. Wilson, PF, MIL 2. Henry- O.G. Anunoby, SF, TOR 3. Ben- Harry Giles, PF, SAC 4. BPatz- Josh Hart, PG, LAL 5. Mike (via Kevin)- Donovan Mitchell, SG, UTA 6. Mike- Jordan Bell, PF, GSW 7. Scott- Justin Patton, C, MIN 8. Micah (via Shane)- Josh Collins, PF, ATL 9. Oh- Ivan Rabb, PF, MEM 10.

Max- Ike Anigbogu, C, IND Some thoughts: -Swanigan and Kennard fell way lower than they should have. -I thought Zach Collins went way higher than he should have. -Mitchell and Collins went very low before they blew up in Summer League.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.

  14. 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.
