  1. I was looking at sprint speed stats today and noticed that he isnt particularly fast. They have him at 259th, 27.5 ft/sec, which puts him right around guys like Muncy, Contreras, and Devers. For reference, Buxton is first at 30.5 ft/sec, and Trea Turner is 6th at 30.1 ft/sec. I know that stealing bases isn't only about speed, but I'd much rather have a truly fast guy like Trea, Story, Baez, or Acuna. Am I over-complicating things by considering this?
  2. I've been looking at the various projection systems on Fangraphs. I've never found a way to post over there tho - (is there a forum there?) - and I post here a lot, so I hope its ok that I am asking this here. Anyway, if you look at pretty much any set of projections, it looks like its sorted by best to worst by WOBA, with the expected guys like Trout and Mookie at the top. But things get weird pretty quick. Like if you look at the steamer projections, Juan Soto is ranked 6th overall. Nelson Cruz is 10th. Acuna is 35 or so. Now those guys are not being drafted anywhere close to that. So, does their ranking really mean they expect Soto to be the 6th best fantasy player this year? What am I missing?
  3. This. He was actually really good last year if you could ignore R/RBI. If he hits at the top of the lineup, he should be a solid plus in at least 4 categories, and he won't hurt much in BA either. Definitely targeting him... unless he implodes before draft day 🤯
  4. Is there an easy way to see which hitters have the biggest splits vs LHP/RHP? Or even to see projections about who will platoon due to bad splits? I hate drafting guys who sit a lot of the time.
  5. Even if he manages to improve his splits, the Dodgers are so deep that I think there is a real chance he keeps sitting vs most LHPs. Think Joc Pederson (worst case). Not a big deal in a roto league, but sucks in a daily H2H. I won’t be back in until he shows he can play every day and the Dodgers show they are willing to do that.
  6. He may not get many more starts. Which sucks, because he was just finally coming around... “Perez sprained the thumb late last month, and the last-place Royals will probably take it easy on him for what remains of the 2018 regular season.”
  7. Sitting again. CBS reports that he'll play at some point during the three-game set against the Mariners that kicks off Friday.
  8. Ugh, his season stats don’t look that bad - he is currently ranked 90th in Yahoo - but I certainly will never draft him again. And I am going to be more aware of who has really bad splits in future drafts. Managing guys like this in a daily league sucks...
  9. The good news is he is finally droppable in Yahoo leagues. Team looks much better with Mondesi at SS for the final few days. Hoping he can win SBs for me since Segura can’t run anymore...
  10. Sitting more than he is playing ? hasn’t started 6 of the last 11 games
  11. Ugh, you jinxed him. ? He’s gone ice cold lately. Anyone know whats up? Still have confidence going forward?
  12. It looks like the Dodgers have too many pieces, so they are going to sit everyone occasionally. With Bellinger’s recent lack of production, and the fact that he is generally sitting vs LHP, I am wondering if he is droppable for a hot WW bat?
  13. Hmm, he is back, but not in the lineup. Boone said he will be eased back into play, and probably won’t play an entire game for a while. IOW, he may not contribute that much down the stretch...
  14. I really wanted to believe but finally dropped him last week in a 10 teamer
  15. Literally 1/17 this week. .059 BA. Yikes! His BABIP is only .227 tho, should be more like .300, so hopefully things turn around soon.
