  1. Jonathan Schoop 2018 Outlook

    And that particular point fails. When BABIP and AVG go down together, the change is far less likely to have anything to do with "bad luck" than it has to do with the player just not hitting as well. When BABIP or AVG go up/down by itself, it's more likely to be due to luck. We don't seem to disagree that some or all of the problem lies with Schoop himself rather than bad luck though. I'm just saying there's a right way and a wrong way to use BABIP as an indicator of good/bad "luck".

    Well, the HR/FB% might point to a bit of bad luck. But the 40 point BABIP/AVG split is actually exactly the same as his normal career differential. Personally, I don't think his struggles have much at all to do with luck and more likely point to injury and/or need for adjustment. Hopefully it's the latter and he can manage to pull it off. I'm seriously considering dropping/selling low though. Playing through injuries can work for a real baseball team sometimes. But almost never for fantasy.

    Actually, his excellent ratios and 6 wins have him as #12 SP on the player rater for traditional 5x5.

    Looks like Maeda got bumped back to tomorrow for Brock Stewart today.

    I know this is a little bit out of left field, but... Is Gio Gonzalez starting tomorrow or is it Hellickson?
  6. May Closer Thread 2018

    Well, the question for a lot of leagues is only whether he has lost the job of full time closer to Hader or to CBC, in which case he is droppable in a great many leagues. In others, maybe not. But at the very least, it's a relevant question at this point for many.

    I can never remember how to spell this guy's name. Kinda like the vegetable broccoli. I'm thinking of rolling the dice on Buchholz +175, FWIW (not much in fantasy I suppose). I figure the Dbacks could go at least 10-17 vs Thor with this clown starting.

    if you see plus, it means you lay 100 ducats/pennies/etc. to win that many. If you see a minus, it means you lay that many to win 100 ducats/pennies/etc.

    Two doubleheaders today. Both Dodgers and Cubs are going RHP first and LHP second (the Nats and Reds are just going righty both games). So any Nats/Reds RHB that make the early lineup have a good chance to play two games in terms of streaming. Anyway, go Fiers +230, Duffy +225, Romo/Yarbrough +172, Urena +165, Eflin +120, and Kluber +100. Alot of decent underdogs today.

    ^Every year that's what everyone says. And every year Lindor is better.
  11. Gleyber Torres 2018 Outlook

    He's playing. Aaron Boone said there was a typo on the board somewhere in the stadium. Hitting 9th playing 2B.
  12. Carlos Correa 2018 Outlook

    I don't think I'll ever understand why this guy gets drafted ahead of Lindor every single year.

    The only thing that has me a little worried is this shoulder thing. If his problems aren't related to that, I'm sure he'll be fine. If they are, it could be a long season for his owners.

    Both those slash lines are good dude. The fact that they aren't exactly the same is... baseball. No one has exactly the same stats from the first half and the second half. I mean, you're talking like one of those lines is total monster and the other is awful. And that just isn't reflected in the numbers you post above. You say it yourself "he had a good final slash line", which was my point. It stands.
  15. Matt Adams 2018 Outlook

    ^yeah. I was looking at an .841 OPS and typed something else. The point was that he had a good slash line, which obviously still stands. As far as platooning, he's a lefty anyway and obviously most starters are RHP, plus last year he was playing pretty much every day once he went to the Braves, even with Freeman going over to third so he could.
