  1. Not a guarantee when the manager says Mark Reynolds is going to see time there in the spring. Seems like there could be at least some competition. I'm not saying Reynolds is legit competition, just that if the manager is out there saying they are trying him at 2b, there is no way that was their first option.
  2. Trade Value for Altuve in 14 Team H2H Dynasty. WHIR

    Altuve is only like 28. Baseball has ebbs and flows. I would hold as this seems like selling low on him.
  3. I'd stick with Franco. His numbers are better than Vlad's at the same age in rookie ball. I do like Hampson and McNeil, but McNeil is basically limited for ABs right now, especially if he doesn't field the OF well. There is a chance that by this time next year Wander is the top prospect in baseball. That could fetch you WAY more than Hampson and McNeil at that point.
  4. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Ya, I just don't see his actual value as being that of a 1st rounder right now. He may end up there, but without SBs in todays fantasy that's not a 1st overall type of player. Players are more athletic now then they were when Pujols broke in. SBs back then were also much more plentiful overall.
  5. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    His ADP in drafts I have been a part of is right around 13. So early 2ndish. In larger formats, he tends to move way earlier than that. I've seen him go 4th overall in a 20 teamer because the owner couldn't find a partner to trade back and he wanted him. What I look at for fantasy is stats. Stats don't lie, owners do. If I can get a guy who will bat about 20 points lower but have the same counting stats and an additional 30 hrs, I will take him over Vlad every time. Especially as he's still somewhat an unknown. He hasn't had to adjust to anything. It's like Soto. I love Soto, but he did what he did over about half a season. Don't expect him to hit at the same rate. There is a reason the sophomore slump is a thing. It's because there aren't very many scouting reports on you in the minors and they don't come in force until your first FULL season in the majors. That's when you either adjust or become Byron Buxton.
  6. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    I mean, I get he can put up that .330/35hrs slash line. But he's also on Toronto, the counting stats just won't be there. It's like the Trout vs Betts argument to me. People keep taking Trout first, even though he's injured for a time every year and hasn't broke 80 RBIs the last two years. Those stats matter a bit too. As Vlad keeps gaining weight it definitely greatly increases his injury risk in the field, which makes it even more likely he moves to DH. 1B IS a possibility, but how many right handed 1B are only 6'1"?
  7. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    By what you are saying if I select Vlad I not only need to have a throwaway level 1b, but also a good 3b just in case he moves to 1b this year. You don't see how that effects the value of a player? In order to feel confident in my lineup I need 2 other players with Vlad... Also, based on the article I posted above about his weight, team officials are ALREADY worried he may have to DH soon. He literally gained 40 lbs IN SEASON this year. That's a big deal. He's gaining weight at an absurd pace. His BMI is already over 30.
  8. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    With everything I know right now, I wouldn't draft him earlier than about 28th overall. His weight is grossly fluctuating and it screams Pablo Sandoval to me. If he can't maintain his weight IN SEASON in the minors, he's not going to do well with how much food the majors has ready for players before and after every game. Same reason I downgraded Eddie Lacy in football there at the end. If you don't have the mental fortitude to keep your own weight in check, how can I expect you to have the mental fortitude to make adjustments in the major leagues?
  9. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    It matters if he's 3b now and moves to 1b where you would already presumably have a starter wouldn't it? At that point, 1b and DH would have the exact same value to your team unless you traded the original 1b off of it.
  10. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    In which form? Full dynasty? He never falls to where I'd even take him. Only dynasties I have him I drafted him in the minors. The fact is, people can push comps all they want, until we actually see him in the majors he still has a chance to completely bust. The fact that he seemingly added 40 LBs IN SEASON is greatly concerning to me. He's now 6'1" and 240 LBs from team sources who specifically said they are worried about him needing to DH because of his frame and being grossly bottom-heavy.
  11. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    He was there because he had monster power with an amazing average. Let me know when you see Vlad put up even 30 hrs in a season. He just got done with the AFL and hit 0 there...
  12. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Vlad right now is currently going in the top 15 picks in dynasty drafts. IF he ends up at DH within 5 years and was THEN drafted he'd be about around pick 30. He has value, not saying that. Saying in a dynasty format that value should be decreasing considering he put on 40 lbs in the middle of a season. Wait until he's in the majors when they have a spread literally pre and post game and gourmet food on flights.
  13. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Based on output and position. Vlad at his best will put up similar numbers to Arenado and Ortiz did. One was a top 10 pick at 3b, the other was a 2nd or 3rd round pick at DH, albeit with similar stats. Positional differences matter in fantasy. Based on BMI, Vlad Jr is considered obese, not even overweight, he's almost into the morbidly obese range.
  14. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Pujols has like 111 SBs in his career. Where do you think Vlad would be about this point in his career? Maybe 20.. maybe? Saying a stat doesn't matter when it DEFINITELY puts a player into the top 5 category is asinine. Pujols had the chance to possibly steal 10 bases a season. I love when someone is proven wrong then says don't respond. Shows you can't debate any further anyways. Fact is, Pujols got SBs. It may not have been the main reason he was drafted early, but it's a whole lot easier drafting someone who gets at least SOME SBs early in a draft than a guy who is projected for around 20 in his entire career.
  15. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    When talking with Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi about defensive drills that they work on at third base, N.H. Fisher Cats position coach Andy Fermin said: “Footwork, especially on the backhand when he has to stop and throw is key. He’s 240, 250 pounds and I feel like he’s got to stay low and use his feet and go around the ball so he can have a better route to the ball.” The Toronto Sun’s Rob Longley, who was recently down in New Hampshire to do some features on Guerrero, was told by team officials that Junior’s weight was in the 230-240 range. Guerrero is all of 19 years old and, apparently, gaining weight alarmingly fast. Guys usually put on pounds when they get older. Junior is not built like his Hall of Famer dad so much.
