  1. Johan Camargo 2019 Outlook

    Swanson has struggled for 2 years, Ozzie didn't exactly light it up in the 2nd half, and Donaldson is no spring chicken. Camargo should have a shot at 400+ at bats being a swiss army knife giving these guys days (or more) off.
  2. Travis Shaw 2019 Outlook

    Moustakas resigned to play 3rd. How much does this cut into Shaw at bats? Or is he pretty much 2nd base exclusive this year?
  3. Luiz Gohara 2019 Outlook

    Folty Gausman Teheran Newcomb Soroka/Gohara/Touki All three of those guys up for that 5th starter spot has high upside. Soroka seems to be destined to be there longer term, but is coming off a shoulder injury. Touki has always been a possible bullpen guy, and Gohara was great 2 years ago before the lost season last year. If I had to guess, Soroka gets the job if fully healthy, Gohara to AAA to be the first man up when needed, and Touki to the pen.

    Managers think in terms of those specific situations. No different than thinking Ks are worth the power. Over the course of a season, sure. In any one specific at bat? Maybe. Definitely not with the game on the line, and a runner in scoring position with 2 outs. Same with basketball. Shooting 3s at 40% is batter than 2s at 50%. Down by one with the last possession? That 2 is the right play. We like to see and measure the game over the long run while it's being played in specific moments.
  5. 2018-19 Off-Season and Hot Stove Thread

    I went both ways but my thinking was, in general, college players reach the majors sooner. Some may prefer the college experience to the rookie ball experience. Since teams, in theory, would move players along faster when possible, skip the low level stuff for quick MLB entry? Could be totally wrong. I'm sure there would be unintended consequences though.
  6. 2018-19 Off-Season and Hot Stove Thread

    You get drafted/signed you are under control for x amount of years. No separate mlb clock. Prospects reach the bigs sooner, players reach free agency sooner, teams don't take as many shots early on raw potential so it helps the college game and makes the draft more meaningful because teams have less early busts. Moniak goes to college. He develops without the pressure of being #1. Or he is exposed either way, but at least it isn't at the Phillies expense now.
  7. Sean Murphy C Athletics

    He hasn't spent much time in AAA but the cupboard is pretty bare in Oakland, could he make the team out of the gate? Known as great defensively and pretty good offensively. Did .285/.361/.480 in mainly AA last year but did end the year in AAA. Catcher seems thin in 2019, if he has a shot at early playing time I'll have him on my teams
  8. 2019 Draft Strategy

    I agree Buehler is ahead of Flaherty, just not 3 rounds better. Flaherty strikes people out almost as well and his XFIP was about a 3rd of a run higher. If I'm drafting a low track record pitcher, give me one 3 rounds later and a touch behind. It's a cost preference thing I guess.
  9. 2019 Draft Strategy

    I'll wait for Flaherty all day long at those ADPs. Flaherty did everything Buehler did except he was on a ho-hum Cardinals team instead of in the LA spotlight. I like both of these two a ton, and who doesn't, but that gap in price is unjustified.

  11. 2018 "Cool Story, Bro!" Thread

    Idk if I'll win my Super Bowl or not, but I had 3 big roster decisions to make and I nailed them so far. Rodgers or Trubisky Broncos D or Packers D Cook or Gronk Picked all left side options.
  12. Kareem Hunt 2018 Outlook

    Why does TMZ ending up with it make us assume it was subject to multi-buyer bidding? Savvy enough to have heard of TMZ? Ummm, that doesn't take much savviness.

    Company policy isn't law. It's a public place, there is no expectation of privacy.
  14. Kareem Hunt 2018 Outlook

    That doesn't make the dork who got sent this tape by a friend of a friend smart enough, bold enough, or naive enough to create a bidding war between an NFL star and multiple media outlets.
  15. Kareem Hunt 2018 Outlook

    Not sure how to put this kindly, but if you don't think someone could possibly be that dumb, you are the dummy. Also, you're looking at this through a sports bubble. Kareem Hunt doesn't mean a thing to 90% of America.
