  1. 2018 "Deep" Sleepers

    Garcia made the "just missed" top 100 on both Keith Laws list and Kiley-ELs list on fangraphs.. Hasn't played a game yet in the minors, but has oozing potential.. Might be a good time to go out and grab him. Jairo Solis, SP HOU -Garlando posted above, but I really love the potential here.. Very projectable starter from Houston, did extremely well in the states last year as a 17yr old. Chris Paddack, SP SDP - coming back from TJ this year.. was dominant before he went out with the injury Bryan Mata, SP BOS- people are already raving about the polish and command of this 18yr old arm.. had a really good season in the SAL league at 17/18 years old with projection. For super deep leagues.. Jean Encarnaicon 3B ATL - Kiley made a comment that this kid has thunder in his bat.. I can't remember if he said this was his sleeper in the ATL system or not but I'm going to take a chance here with his knowledge of the Braves system.
  2. Keston Hiura 2B MIL

    Agreed with all the above. Hiura is a favorite of mine for fantasy baseball.. He may get dinged a bit on the lists that include defense, but if i'm doing strictly fantasy rankings.. he's probably in the top 15-20 based on potential.. 65 hit grade with 50 grade power? Sounds promising, sign me up. Outside of Kingery he's far and away the 2nd best 2B prospect..
  3. Which prospects are you higher on than most people, and why?

    Alex Kiriloff - had TJ during the off-season last year, kind of a forgotten commodity.. He's put on 30lbs of muscle since he's last played.. He showed some good pop in his first showing in ROK ball, (7HR), so I have to think the extra weight is going to help out in the power department.. Possibly an above average hit tool with above average power? He's in my fantasy top 100 that's for sure.. Yordan Alvarez - Has a chance to be a fantasy stud IMO.. He will get dinged on some prospect lists because he's most likely going to be a first baseman, but when it comes to fantasy I think the dude has a chance to be elite. From what I've read he's shown good plate patience and will probably end up wtih plus power.. He dominated LoA last year at 19yrs old and faired pretty well in HiA (he turned 20 in June).. I love the fact that he plays for the Astros as well and has a chance to be playing with Tucker, Correa, Bregman, (and whichever main core members they sign long term).. I'm hoping they don't trade him, but with Whitley/Tucker being deemed as "untouchable" he's one of Houston's most appealing prospects.
  4. This does not include the minors that are available as well.. For any of the league information you can register at the forums (it takes 1 min to read all of the rules) Also, the A's have the 6th most cap space in the league as it stands.

  5. We are looking for an owner to take over one of our teams in the Field of Dreams Dynasty league. The team would be the Oakland Athletics. We have 40 man MLB and 40 man MiLB rosters.. The league is $50 per year.. and we pay 2 years in advance.. All teams are paid up through 2019.. Since the A's have already paid for 2018, you'd only be responsible for 2019.. You're getting the first year free to build or rebuild however you like and then will be "paying next year"..This team was only a few games out from making the playoffs in 2018 and has some really good assets (Corey Seager, Mookie Betts, Syndergaard).. The league has a salary cap of $100m and contracts are based on 6years.. You could control a player for up to 13 years if you so choose.. Say I drafted Hunter Greene in the draft last year.. I have his minor rights for 6 years.. He can be promoted at any time during those 6 years... When you promote him he is assigned to a Minors-1 deal that runs for that current year.. Once that year is over you must either release the player or sign them to a 6yr deal at the league minimum which is at $400K - a huge advantage to have a cheap contract. CATS: R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS, TB W, QS, K, SV, HLD, ERA, WHIP THIS IS A VERY ACTIVE AND COMPETITIVE LEAGUE... This is not set and forget.. Please know this going into the league.. Most teams are on every single day.. We have a busy off-season.. and have other commitments through out the year (July 2 signees, Amatuer draft, Free agency) so this is a year around league. Please register at to view the league constitution and rules We use the forum to post our transactions and do all of our drafting/free agency/etc through that.. The commissioners edit the salries on fantrax and put the contract years in there as well. This Team Will have 40m+ in cap space to spend.. Free Agency was supposed to start next Monday, however, that may be delayed based on when we have someone join. $50 payment is due as soon as the team is wanted.. I cannot reserve the team unless you pay up front. You can email me at or message me on here. Athletics will have the 11th pick in the Amatuer draft in June Here is the A's team- sorry the formatting will be off.. The main minors: Luis Ortiz, Kyle Funkhouser, Chad Pinder, Perez, Salvador C,UT- KC 1B Thames, Eric 1B,OF,UT- MIL 3B Lamb, Jake 3B,UT- ARI SS Iglesias, José SS,UT- DET OF Betts, Mookie OF,UT- BOS OF Kiermaier, Kevin OF,UT- TB OF Lind, Adam 1B,OF,UT- (N/A) Res Kipnis, Jason 2B,UT- CLE Res Motter, Taylor SS,OF,UT- SEA Res Seager, Corey SS,UT- LAD Res Castro, Jason C,UT- MIN Res Parra, Gerardo OF,UT- COL Res Holt, Brock 2B,3B,UT- BOS Bradley, Archie RP,P- ARI SP Corbin, Patrick SP,P- ARI SP Wood, Alex SP,P- LAD RP Holland, Greg RP,P- (N/A) RP Tazawa, Junichi RP,P- MIA RP P Berríos, José SP,P- MIN P Leake, Mike SP,P- SEA Res Fulmer, Michael SP,P- DET IR Miller, Shelby SP,P- ARI Warren, Adam RP,P- NYY IR Eovaldi, Nathan SP,P- TB IR Syndergaard, Noah SP,P- NYM
  6. 2018 "Deep" Sleepers

    Jose Isreal Garcia -SS CIN.. Received a $5m signing bonus back in June and didn't suit up in 2017.. Project-able 6'2 frame, fantastic athlete from Cuba.. Has some really nice tools.. 19yrs old, no hype to speak of right now.. but could be one to snag in deeper leagues.. I like grabbing guys like this before anyone else gets a chance to.. worst case - drop them, pick up someone else. Andres Munoz - RP SDP - Stud 18yr old RP thats done extremely well in the AFL, he's the youngest player in the fall league.. 8.2IP, 1.04ERA, 2BB, 11K.. If you need a closer to stash, here's your guy.. 100mph heat. Freddy Tarnok - SP ATL - Signed with ATL with an over slot bonus (3rd round) and is an extremely projectable SP. Has only been focusing on pitching for 2-3 years so doesn't have much mileage on his arm. FB sits in the low to mid 90s. He's 6'3 185lbs.. A lot to like here. Ronaldo Hernandez, C TB - Not sure if he qualifies as a sleeper but hit ..340 in the DSL last year and hit .332 in the App league this year.. he's a little bit older at 20yrs old.. Put up a SLG % of .507.. I love catchers that can hit and it sounds like his defense will be good enough to stick behind the plate.
  7. 2018 "Deep" Sleepers

    I'll second this one - Freicer Perez, P, Yankees
  8. Estevan Florial, OF NYY

    He's fairing well in the fall league so far.. which is a good sign... I think Florial will be one of the guys that has massive jump in the rankings... Top 20 potential and maybe even top 10 potential. Guys with his tools do not come around often... A guy that hits with power with 65-70 grade speed is rare..
  9. Guys I Own Thanks to This Forum...

    Thanks Bdy! Some very good posters on this forum. Always look forward to my mornings at work scanning the MiLB board here. Sad the minor league season is ending soon.. I enjoy this forum way more than the MLB forum because it seems its more about providing information for others to take advantage of.. opposed to a chest thumping contest of who's right and who's wrong.. I wouldn't own half of the guys I own in my dynasty league if it wasn't for others providing snippets of info in the past.
  10. Luis Castillo 2017 Outlook

    K'd 9 last night against a team that is in top 4 in strikeouts per game.. last 3 games are an example of the strikeout upside we saw.. K'd 8 against the braves in 4IP who was top 6 in strikeouts per game. 3.26era, 1.14whip, 9.66 K/9 now for the season.. Pretty dang good fantasy starter in any league.. nonetheless, a lot better than a streamer. Much kudos to the Reds pitching staff.. They've been awesome working with Castillo this season.. I'll admit I was a bit bummed when he was moved to the Reds, as the Reds hadn't had much luck developing starters as of late.. I was wrong. Love the upside here in the seasons ahead..
  11. Jack Flaherty, SP STL

    I really like Flaherty, but where does he fit in, in the STL rotation? 1) Martinez 2) Leake 3) Lynn 4) Wacha 5) Weaver Maybe if Weaver flounders he gets a shot? Next year, Reyes will most likely snag a rotation spot and hopefully Lynn leaves in free agency. Just not sure where he fits in.. seems like he's been on a little bit of the lucky side looking at the FIP.. but the upside is pretty big here.
  12. Brian Dozier 2017 Outlook

    12th HR since the break.. Next year I need to find a suitable replacement for the 1st half of the year and then put Dozier in, in the 2nd half.. This is crazy.
  13. Brian Dozier 2017 Outlook

    On fire since the break.. .291/.354/.604 31 games - 26R, 11HR, 25RBI, and a SB for good measure.
