  1. I can see turning down Gleyber. He's not as fantasy friendly potential wise as Eloy. but ROBLES? Thaaaaats a stretch for me. 5 cats vs 4. Similar timeframes, more consensus around Victor. To me he's easily the top A ball guy right now, any position. With him it's not just the tools, but also the mature approach for such a young player. He may get hit some but he's also more disciplined then 99% of players his age regardless.
  2. You're too hype. Lot of love for him right now, and also a wide range of outcomes. He's got a .407 BABIP. The average is a mirage, it will come down. His discipline leaves plenty to be desired. in terms of tools he's an exciting young player. But he's not all of a sudden over all the known quantities in the high minors, and even then, Robles, Devers, Gleyber, Rodgers, Espinoza, these are the Lo or Hi A guys who alone could be ranked ahead of Eloy.
  3. Been an Eloy fan for awhile. Hardlined an owner Ina dynasty league trade saying it MUST include him last year. Good thread, the potential is big.
  4. Then why are you on a Fantasy Baseball discussion forum?I think those comparisons are fair as far as comparing an outcome for tool potential. Does it mean they will become clones of those players? No, and I think that is common sense when making these comparisons. I'm not sure you know what irresponsible means. Irresponsible is when you drink and drive. Irresponsible is when you aren't doing what's suppose to be done. Comparing two baseball players isn't irresponsible. Like I said, that makes no damn sense. Putting unrealistic expectations on a players doesn't make you irresponsible. You understand the difference now? So before you try to check someone, at least try to understand the English language first. That's irresponsible. Actually it's not, it just makes you look dumb. I can't believe someone actually liked your post. What are you so mad about? Relax.
  5. Comps sort of irresponsible even tho we've all done it But dude is looking like a top 10 prospect in baseball by midseason if he already isnt
  6. Less power then Betts. Mookie has that pulls side loft that plays perfectly at Fenway. I really see Starling Marte with 10-15 and 40-45. With better OBP. That's a game changer.
  7. BP put a 70 on his hit tool in a report last year.
  8. Needs more time. Need to see him do it in Potomac. If he does there, you can expect him to be in the 10-15 range as a lock.What I'm looking for isn't the numbers, it's the scouting report. I want to see a real write up. THAT + High A numbers will determine trajectory, I can imagine what the scouting report will say... Robles has managed to luck into an OBP of over .500. He looks slow but somehow steal 7 bases and hit 3 triples in 14 games. He's walked more than he's K'd all while being one of the youngest players in a pitcher dominated league. Scouting report: he's a bum! He's dominated Lo-A. That's for sure. After what he did last year, that much was expected. I want to see him do it in high A before fully anointing him to top 10. Then we're talking. He'll have a shot at that this year.

  10. If he has the half seasons Buxton had in A ball, he's a no doubt top 5/10 prospect in baseball going into next year. Keep it up kid.
  11. best two way player in that draft is probably Bradley zimmer But regardless, verdugo likely caps out at 15hr 20 ab as a ceiling, his swing doesn't create a ton of leverage players can always surprise but to me he's a "better in real life" guy
  12. I'm just saying what a potential upside could be based on tool grades I've read from various places. I'm aware of the irresponsibility on projecting 18 year olds but I'm just having fun outchea
  13. The OBP is a mirage. He's got something insane like 21 HBP in 200AB's and its doubled his potential gains in that category. I think he's got a lot of bad speed and decent leverage in his swing, so power can always develop, but I'm not sure he's a big contributor there. BP threw a 7 on his hit tool though so I think a best case scenario type would be AJ Pollack.
  14. I saw some other people saying "inverted W" in regards to espinoza I'm no expert and I would need some obvious stills but I couldn't see it in the video from BA
  15. The hype is reminiscent of Bundy.
  16. Yeah. Cooper and the BA crew love him. Love love love him.
  17. Today's outing jsut as dominant as the rest These are like, Bundy first exposure type numbers. This is crazy.
  18. He's young and years and years away. There's nothing else to think
  19. Debuting anyone when they're 20ish is moving him quickly.
  20. Still a small sample size, there's been a couple guys who's approach seems to have regressed a little from their debut (dahl and Devers come to mind"all still about development going forward . I didn't expect Devers to hit .322 again but he is definitely holding his own. I'm not sure If regression is the right word considering his age and level. Robles is holding his own against older competition as well even though it is a small sample size. Not saying Devers is the next big papi but this is definitely interesting: In 89 professional games, hes blasted nine homers a staggering figure at an age where even future power hitters struggle to clear the fences. (David Ortiz, for instance, had two homers as an 18-year-old in rookie ball.) Sorry to hijack the Robles thread with Devers info but my point is these young guys are holding their own against guys 3 years older then them. They are both still VERY young but both of them have been very impressive Oh absolutely. I own both in my dynasty league haha. I just want everyone to exercise caution this far away.

  22. One crazy thing I just read: a 3.5 gb/fb ratio. That means he's staying down in the zone, inducing weak contact, and limiting potential damage every step of the way. That ratio is absurd.
  23. He should slot in comfortably in the back end. The potential is there for a lot more but basically everyone on the list will have been more established at higher levels. Someone to watch. The numbers are eye popping. 0.9 or so ERA in the GCL from someone who is the age of a high school junior. The average age of a GCL player is 19.7. My one question is how easy can the mechanics be? I've seen the ease of his motion noted plenty of times, but he's 5'11. Not the downhill plane or extension you're looking for from an elite guy. It just isn't physically possible. The perceived velocity is less then what the radar gun shows most likely. An interesting name to watch. The easiest comparison is Yordano, but since he's a sawk I'm sure we'll here the baby Pedro label thrown around a bunch.
