  1. Byron Buxton 2017 Outlook

    I thought what made most so excited about him as a prospect was potential 20-25HR, 50-60 steals type seasons. 30 steals seems like a let down projection.

    Great! We sure don't want him following BJ's career arc.

    Just pair him with Encarnacion and you're set for the year.
  4. Mookie Betts 2017 Outlook

    I don't know if it's the nature of these single player outlook threads, but people here focus too much on what each player has done relative to their draft position. If you're on these boards then you probably have made some great WW pickups to makeup for your draft pick misses. So is it really a big deal if Betts got bumped down to your 2nd or 3rd best OF? Or a flex? If you picked up two or three players who are performing better than him then what you need to compare Betts to is the other rosters 2nd or 3rd OFs, not their 1st round picks. There are 4 legs to Fantasy success; drafting, lineups, trading and WW pickups. if you failed to utilize the other 3 because you're too busy dwelling on a struggling Betts then that is your fault.

    I doubt anyone in a keeper league built there team around him as their ace. If he's your SP4 or 5 and you can combine his stats with whatever bench orWW replacement when he's hurt, that's well worth it. People focus on players in a bubble too much.

    Andrew Miller on the DL. Haven't seen it mentioned here yet.

    Over of underpaying has only to do with the market value of the players involved at the time. Not the end result. The motivation to want to overpay has to do with the desire for the end result. That motivation and ultimate outcome doesn't change whether or not something was an overpay at the time. All it does is confirm that it was worth it and strategy paid off. Process over product always.

    Yes usually repeats the games the next day. Maybe record it and then fast forward to the post game interview?
  9. Brad Peacock 2017 Outlook

    He did the same thing against Texas last time. Had a studly performance. Needs to string a few games like this together.
  10. Masahiro Tanaka 2017 Outlook

    He needs to pitch every 6th day for the rest of the season.
  11. Starling Marte 2017 Outlook

    Keeper league. Same principle though. I don't want someone else to grab him. So every time I need a roster space I make a 2:1 or 3:2 type deal or just drop someone I like less. This year though it's often just putting someone on the DL.
  12. Starling Marte 2017 Outlook

    just visualize waking up, opening you league app, and seeing that Marte has been added by someone. Whatever feeling you get is the answer to "when to pick him up" questions. If you are angry over it then pick him up now, just figure out a way. If you're indifferent over it then keep playing chicken with your league. I've been holding this whole time.

    Couldn't Fedde be the answer for the Nats? They'd probably want to bring him up soon to see if that's a possibility though. Not sure what his timeline is.
  14. Eric Thames 2017 Outlook

    These guys are chess pieces. Just because you sell doesn't mean someone is scared. Could simply be playing the 2-3 moves ahead game. I used Thames in a package to get Murphy, who I then flipped in another package to get Bryant. Now this is a keeper league so different perspectives. At the surfuace though I gave up a ton in two moves (in addition to Thames) but it landed me Bryant and so I'm happy. So I technically sold low but it's process over product. Just keep working the process with these types as you're playing with house money. Just as in FF I always flip my successful waiver adds or late round lottery tickets while they have any tyke of value. I'll risk losing out the next superstar as long as I turn it into something rock solid that is more of a liquid asset.

    I know he has more currently, but does he have more speed potential than Robles? I thought I saw some 70 grades for Robles speed.
