    Hmm if he is batting 8th I’m going to drop him until he moves up in the order. He is not really someone to keep around unless he is producing. Just need to keep an eye on him.

    He should have awesome stats being in the Sox lineup but I think 20 steals might be a high projection for him. When the lineup is that loaded, teams usually run a lot less. Also, his base stealing numbers in the minors weren’t huge so that concerns me too. I’m thinking 15 is a better bet.

    Yeah that is overpaying for sure.

    I don’t understand where you’re coming from on this, his BB numbers have been good in the minors too

    He’s definitely better value if you wait on him instead of Paxton and Cole who are both way overranked if you ask me. Is Price even healthy? He’s a big gamble too. I actually drafted Godley two rounds after Castillo is one league. I’m a big fan of Luis this year.

    Santana hits well vs both lefties and righties, Thames cannot hit lefties and Braun hits them both well too. But I can’t see Thames just being a bench player either. Somethings gotta give!

    I’m starting to get worried about this guy (I panicked and picked him around 100) and the crowded lineup he is in. I didn’t realize just how crowded this roster is. Where do we expect him to bat? I’m also trying to make sense of his stats and whether he can maintain similar numbers to last year. His plate discipline numbers don’t look great, he misses the ball a lot and isn’t making high zone contact but he is able to lay off pitches outside the zone to get lots of walks. Can he maintain a high average with his high K numbers? His home run numbers seem a bit flukey to me. The majority of his HR are to centre and opposite field. This is because he mainly seems to be trying to hit hard line drives (his line drive rate has been consistently high for a few years now) and he isn’t trying to pull the ball a lot or selling out for homers. It shows he has power but if he isn’t pulling the ball enough or hitting a ton of fly balls, can he maintain or exceed 30HR? His hard and soft hit numbers are nice, hard hit is just below 40% and the soft hit is only 11.7%. I feel like if he’s hitting the ball hard and maintaining line drives them he’s going to be more of a high average guy but the Ks say otherwise. Can someone help me figure this guy out?

    I remember someone posted last year that he suffers from having the most generic Latin American name in baseball so that suppresses his value lol

    20 steals seems like a stretch, I feel like he’s more of 25/15 which is obviously still pretty useful, he’s definitely being overlooked.
  10. Mike Moustakas 2018 Outlook

    Wow this is very interesting, really don’t know how to value this guy anymore.
  11. Eduardo Nunez 2018 Outlook

    His yahoo ranking is crazy low, going to be targeting for sure.
  12. Alex Bregman 2018 Outlook

    Too rich for my blood, I don’t see big power numbers and the I don’t believe he will steal as many bases this year ether. I’m avoiding at that price.
  13. Yoenis Cespedes 2018 Outlook

    From owning Cespedes it seems like he is always dealing with minor injuries. You should probably expect some of that when you’re drafting him. He does seem like a bargain in the 8th round though.
  14. Paul DeJong 2018 Outlook

    DeJong just got a six year, 26M contract with the Cardinals. They must have a lot of confidence in him. His numbers scare the heck out of me though. He looks like a Randal Grichuk clone if you compare their numbers from their breakout year.
  15. Khris Davis 2018 Outlook

    This guy certainly scares me but the risk is built into his price. I’m just afraid he could implode like Todd Frazier and have a 200 average because of those K numbers.
