    I come to believe that Schebler is going to end up being the odd-man-out. He had a nice first half in 2017, but his second half was pretty bad. I wasn't a huge believer, even when he was hitting all those HRs in April-May. He hit 16 in those two months and then 14 over the final 4 months. I think he's going to eventually be the one to lose ABs to the other three.

    Anything over .230 is gravy, imho.

    No, your statement was incorrect. You never specified MLB just said 145 innings. That was my point. And with that said...I'm out on this part of the discussion. This thread is about CMart, who I like quite a bit. I think this could actually be a breakout season for him.
  4. Carlos Martinez 2018 Outlook

    I wasn't saying anything about CMart or Paxton. I was just correcting a factual statement you made.

    He threw 171 innings in 2016 and 169 in 2013.

    I really like Mateo over the second half of this season...and moreso next season.

    Yeah, I was just mentioning the two places I saw, but I have a hard time seeing Schebler and/or Winker over Duvall, which is what they have.

    I don't know about other places, but RotoChamp and RosterResource both had Duvall on the bench the last time I looked.

    Batting leadoff for that lineup? If he stays healthy, I think 600 ABs and 110+ Rs are reachable. Toss in 8-10 HR and a manager who says 50 SB is a fair goal, and this could be the time to get Deshields for a reasonable price.

    I simply stated that IF he gets 550 AB from the 9-hole, I believe he'll score 100 runs. You're trying to pull data from here and there, and that's fine. If he gets just 500 ABs and they're all from the 9-hole, I believe (as I said before) he will threaten 100 runs. He bats 9th...he'll have the top of a very potent lineup coming up behind him. And with as potent as the Rangers lineup is, I think it's very possible the 9-hole for the Rangers gets 625+ PAs. According to Fangraphs, the average 9-hole gets 610 PAs in a 162-game season. Let's say Deshields plays 150 games, all hitting from the 9-hole. According to Fangraphs average, that's 565 PAs...but then the Rangers aren't an average lineup. So maybe we could assume as many as 580 PAs...possibly more. In his career, Deshields has walked once for every 10 PAs...that's 58 walks, so let's round up to 60. That gives him potentially 520 ABs from the 9-hole with that lineup coming up behind him. Do you agree that him getting 520 ABs from the 9-hole is virtually the same as getting 520 ABs from the leadoff spot? If Deshields, thanks to the strength of the Rangers lineup, simply maintained his career average of scoring a run every 5.06 ABs...that alone would give 103 runs in 520 ABs. Or, he scores once ever 5.85 580 PAs, that would come to 99 runs. That said, runs are dependent on the guys behind you moving you around and bringing you in, but the fact is that has happened at a high rate for Deshields as a Ranger. I'm not guaranteeing Deshields scoring 100 runs...but I do like his chances if he plays 150 games this year and hits either leadoff or in the 9-hole.

    I'll respectfully disagree. If he gets 550 Abs from the 9-hole, I fully expect 100 runs from him. It would be no different from him getting 550 ABs from the leadoff spot.

    Waiver wire fodder? As a catcher?
  14. Delino DeShields 2018 Outlook

    if he hits 9th and gets 550 ABs, then why can't he get 100 runs? He'd have the top of a very potent lineup rolling around behind him. He could probably get 500 ABs hitting 9th and still threaten to break 100 runs. Hitting 7th or 8th...maybe not. But if he's going to hit that low, they may as well drop him all the way to 9th to really take advantage of his speed on the basepaths with the top of the lineup coming up.

    I haven't seen anyone project 2nd round value yet.
