    Any player at any time. See, Justin Turner.
  2. Bradley Zimmer 2018 Outlook

    Looks like the groin thing wasn't too serious. He was back in the lineup yesterday. Looking around, looks like he's projected to bat 9th, which I don't like, but he's available way late in drafts. I'll be trying to take a flier.
  3. Archie Bradley 2018 Outlook

    Average ADP of 187. Right in the range of guys who are uncertain to have a job (Greg Holland), or otherwise rather "meh" options (Treinen, Herrera, Brach). If I'm feeling comfortable with saves by that point, I may just take Bradley and his ratios, whether he closes games or not.
  4. Greg Holland 2018 Outlook

    I certainly wouldn't. Can't even stash him in a DL spot.
  5. Greg Holland 2018 Outlook

    I meant for next year. Or could a team just place a QO on him at the end of this season again?
  6. Greg Holland 2018 Outlook

    I don't think he'll have the draft pick tied to him next year, will he? Sorry, I don't know exactly how QOs work.

    I had read a tweet saying he's got a better feel for the curve ball this spring and is throwing that much more effectively. I've been grabbing him in nearly the last round of mocks. At that point, why not, right?

    Why not?
  9. Nelson Cruz 2018 Outlook

    5 games in RF last year. I give him almost a zero percent chance of doubling that.
  10. Josh Donaldson 2018 Outlook

    His quad looks fine too. Wait, that might be Madison Bumgarner.
  11. Ryan Braun 2018 Outlook

    Goldschmidt, Myers. Maybe Bellinger. Maybe Desmond. Certainly a rarity though, Braun has the ability to give you fairly unique stats at 1B.
  12. Do you prefer daily or weekly leauges?

    That's a good addition. My league was actually weekly for a couple years. It wasn't that bad. I hated when a guy would get hurt on Monday, and I just had the eat position for the whole week. I much prefer daily. We had a little less than half our league who preferred weekly. A couple compromises we did; limited transactions to 4 per week. Obviously prevents the guy who is on all the time and makes 1000 moves/always gets the callups & recently named closers. I actually lost out on Mike Trout when he was called up, cause I'd used my last transaction the day prior. We also lock lineups at the first pitch of each day. So, I don't get the benefit of subbing guys out last minute if they're sitting for an afternoon or evening game.

    Baseball is played daily. Weekly is for football.

    I remember he was really bad a couple years ago. I had forgotten he hit .174. Yowza. I don't know if he'll hit .250 again, but I'd be really surprised if he went back to .175'ish.
