    Yep. I think the Soto comps alone are enough to warrant pretty solid trade value, although I'm still teetering on whether I want to move him. I think he ends up at 2B and I really don't like the depth there long term.

    IDK - I'm more than happy with Bryce's output. Sure he's not a super duper star, but his name will always have the hype associated with it. His stats have been pretty solid, now he has CF eligibility next year. I'm comfortable keeping him in the top 10 dynasty player list, borderline top 5. Not that I want the Wander love fest to get too off track.
  3. Logan Allen - SP SD

    Had Logan Allen a couple years ago, still like him a lot. He's an off the radar prospect for sure.
  4. Wander Franco, SS, TB

    Better to be early than late. I feel like if he's not grabbed in deeper dynasties at this point he will be very very soon. I grabbed him after I heard he cracked Klaw's top 20 about a month ago and I felt like I was late.
  5. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Do any of his stats suggest his BABIP is inflated? I mean...that's what happens when you hit the cover off the ball. I don't think the Buxton comp is insane, however there are considerable differences. Buxton profiled as a 5 category guy which can be dangerous because he could end up in the "doesn't really do one thing well" category. Main difference is that Buxton never profiled as the hitter Vlad has. Vlad has clearly shown more patience and an ability to strikeout at nearly 10% lower rate than Buxton. Of course there's a lot of unknown with Vlad, and a lot of us prospect hounds just assuming he'll be a perennial all-star should probably cool our expectations. Either way he's ready now and certain guys shatter advanced stats. I don't blame Toronto for holding back, however it definitely hurts the game overall to have an elite guy wasting ABs in the minors.

    Riding a 10 game hit streak. Had a 25 gamer earlier in the year. So of his 45 games played he's spent 35 of them with extended hit streaks. <3

    This is an absolute joke, nothing more to say.
  8. Juan Soto 2018 Outlook

    He is a bit cocky; I noticed it too a little while back when he took a walk against Kimbrel after falling behind 0-2. Part of me likes the tenacity he brings to the game, the baseball purist in me wants him to eat some humble pie. For the record, I love Soto. I lean towards showing some emotion. The baseball purist mentality tends to hurt the game because they resist change. Baseball players' personalities change over time. If it's good for the game I'm all for it.
  9. Ryan McMahon 2018 Outlook

    It's so frustrating how the Rockies handle prospects. They call up guys, give them a couple games to prove themselves, then ultimately send them to the bench or minors once they have an 0-for. I've seen enough stats about how terrible their LF situation has been to know that Desmond should be in LF and McMahon at 1B. He had a disastrous start to the year, however since 6/1 his MLB line has been pretty solid. 271/323/576 slash, 4 HR, 4 2B in 65 AB. K rate still a bit high. I know it's a real small sample, but my point is that I think if you stick with this bat on a regular basis it's a better option than Parra. Looks like 2019 there will definitely be playing time at either 1B or 2B assuming they don't resign DJ. Although knowing the Rockies and how they handle player development, they'll probably resign DJ blocking 2 of 3 of McMahon/Hampson/Rodgers. Not to mention they also have Welker lurking.
  10. Wander Franco, SS, TB

    Yep. The fact he's continued post mid-season hype to me means he could surprise on some lists (ie top 10). I wouldn't be surprised if he was consensus top 20 for pre-2019 season rankings. I understand the ETA causes a lot of people reservation but the reality is that a number of 20 year olds have come up the past few years. A lot of ETAs assume he's 22/23 when he debuts. It will be interesting to see how the Rays handle him. While they are pretty conservative with some guys, when a guy's ready he's ready. Curious to see if he gets a cameo with the Renegades before season's end or a stint in the AZL.
  11. Chris Paddack - SP SD

    Yeah this has always been my hesitation with jumping on board. Without a decent third pitch I didn't see him panning out to much more than a mid-rotation starter. I haven't seen any scouting report that graded his curveball higher than a 45. Small sample, but the steep decline in K rate is slightly concerning. Could still figure it out tho.

    Guy's line is silly good, glad to see I'm not the only one looking at it regularly. CHOO CHOO
  13. SP Jesus Luzardo, OAK

    That's true. Didn't take their current bullpen situation into account. My speculation was more based on the "why promote to AAA if he's going to be shut down soon anyway?" line of thinking. We'll see, would love to see him get 10 IP at the big league level this year.
  14. SP Jesus Luzardo, OAK

    Only 78.2 IP at AA. Speculating here but I'm thinking the only reason they would have bumped him up to AAA was to make a cameo in the bullpen as a long reliever for the stretch run. The A's are so hot/cold with their team performance year over year I think they give serious thought to adding him. The call up to AAA to me indicates he'll be up. Otherwise the other option would have just left him in AA to finish the year with 105-110 IP. Start 2019 in AA with a call up to AAA around June-ish with a cup of coffee in September and rotation spot in 2020. Think the former is reality, A's in contention means he's up sooner (late 2018). Probably starts 2019 in AAA unless he's lights out down the stretch.
  15. Garrett Hampson COL - SS/IF

    Yep incredibly frustrating. Especially as a McMahon owner. Guy's stock has flatlined for no good reason (in my opinion). If I remember correctly before he got sent down in June he hit a walk off homer. Also read somewhere else that they have some of the worst LF stats in baseball. Why not play Desmond in left, McMahon at 1st and Hampson at 2B? I don't get it. Also Murphy can rake. Seems like he's getting more ABs but they really don't handle prospects well at all.
