  1. Impossible to say without knowing the scoring.
  2. Dude give it up, read the thread, he sucks it doesn't matter what he does. I kid, I kid. Im very excited about his potential again, but I've seen him go high enough in a few drafts that I'm getting worried he may not be the best kept fantasy secret this draft anymore.
  3. I'd be curious to see who was available when conforto was taken. That feels really early for him IMO. I think it's ok, pretty well agree with crypt. Not sure im crazy about Lopez in a QS league but it's a worthy dart throw. Not big on JBJ or Peralta. I think the team is ok, but if im looking at it as my own I'm wondering what I'm gonna do to get to the playoffs because I feel like it would be in the outside looking in. With the SP and bats I would expect to have seen a reach on an elite RP. You may be fine, but it's not a team I'd draft.
  4. Lord no don't do that. Drop Dickerson, or wacha if you want to drop an arm. I would do it and drop Dickerson. Dickerson and Ray for Cain and paddack? Yes, please.
  5. I'm not a big Vlad guy but I wouldn't do the first deal in a points league. Trea takes a hit in those leagues and Baez is in for serious regression and a K liability. I wouldn't give flaherty for Baez in my points league, and Vlad for trea would depend on if I had a SS or not and if I had another good 3b
  6. I want to. I really do. But I am never a a pitching heavy guy and would like 2 bats as future staples. Going to be hard to go wrong with any of them.
  7. Not a category league. It's points, that's why I put the PPG averages next to the players
  8. Hey guys. Got a pretty good idea on what I want to do, I think. But thought I'd see if I'm not missing anything. Each team kept 6 guys this year. Next year each team will keep 5, then it goes back to 6, then 7, all the way to 10, then back down to 5. Supposed to help with parity (I don't think it really does all that much, but not the point). So my keeper choices were extremely weak (I took on the team after last season ended). I kept Vlad Guerrero Jr, Khris Davis, Matt Carpenter, Noah Syndergaard, Corey Kluber, and Jack Flaherty. It is a 10 team H2H points league and lineups lock on Monday. So there's some value in having a couple high end SP's to take advantage of those 2 start matchups, but it's to have a couple of guys who can be cut for 2 start arms, too. The benches are very shallow. Each team has only 4 bench spots, 22 roster spots Lineups are C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, IF, OF, OF, OF, OF, UTIL. I'm heaving considering going with no catcher. The league scoring favors high OBP guys with low K rates (you'll see that in the scoring below. High K guys take a big hit). Pitchers are scored on standard cats, but it favors high K guys and guys who will get a lot of wins (no big shock), no points for a QS. Available bats: Name, 2018 PPG average, 2019 PPG projection Juan Soto, 3.2, 2.9 Alex Bregman, 3.6, 3.4 Anthony Rendon, 3.5, 3.3 Andrew Benintendi, 3.2, 3.0 Cody Bellinger, 2.2, 2.6 Gleyber Torres, 1.9, 2.3 Available arms: Name, 2018 PPG average, 2019 PPG projection Blake Snell, 22.7, 18.8 Justin Verlander, 22.9, 21.8 Walker Buehler, 17.6, 18.5 Patrick Corbin, 19.3, 19.2 In my opinion, I need to go with Bregman or Soto. I need a long term keeper piece, I really have only one now (Vlad) and I'm going to try to deal him. I love Flaherty and Noah, and Noah may be the arm I lean on for years, but Flaherty isn't as good as what is available even, but he was a worthy keep this year. Soto/Bregman with their profiles should stay strong plays. Plus, having already kept 3 arms I don't want to keep going that route, as I feel like I can roll these 3 guys all year and grab one more solid guy then stream 2 start pitchers. I expect the #1 pick to be a pitcher, he has no SP right now. I expect Bregman to go 2nd (that guy kept 3 SP and 2 OF). That leaves me with Rendon, Benintendi, Soto. What do you guys think? I think Soto since I have Vlad, and since it's a 4 OF league I don't wanna sleep on that position. I don't think I should take a SP? Leave a link WHIR. Sorry for the long post, just strive to be thorough.
  9. I think he also squeezed arenado out of that guy too. It is haniger we are talking about, after all.
  10. 2016 79 G, 23 2B, 13 HR, 6 SB, 36 BB, 74 K, .320/.392/.542 2017 80 G, 24 2B, 11 HR, 7 SB, 46 BB, 69 K, .292/.380/.472 Total road numbers two years running (at age 24/25) 159 G, 47 2B, 24 HR, 13 SB, 82 BB, 143 K, .306 BA, .385 OBP, .505 SLG 2018 147 G, 34 2B, 36 HR, 22 SB, 68 BB, 135 K, .326 ba, .402 obp, .598 slg I wish i could claim to have seen that final line coming. His numbers, to me, indicated a big year was coming, which was also the general consensus in the fantasy community. These sessions in Miami were as a 24/25 year old too, and exhibited all the traits you like to see in a young bat. Those doubles turning into hr shouldn't be a shock. That tends to be what happens. Again, I'm not calling for an mvp repeat or anything, but claiming this came out out nowhere and indicating it was fluky suggests you may have been asleep at the wheel on yelich. He can do ~85% of what he did last year and still be a top 15 fantasy bat. You're a trip, man. You're simultaneously bashing on past and future value here. Vlad has zero track record in the majors. There have been many great prospects be incredibly average. How you are so against yelich is beyond me, but it also explains why you are taking the stance you are here. Guys can hype vlad all they want, it's not going to affect whether he's successful or not. Nothing yelich did screams fluke. Regression? Sure. Career year? Likely. Fluke? No. Yelich has the tools to be a top fantasy bat for another half decade or better.
  11. He's in a completely new situation. His numbers indicated this kind of bar was there. Vlad doesn't even have an mlb hit to his name, but let's go ahead and crown him, huh? I am also hyping him on what he did two years prior away from cavernous Miami... I am ignoring nothing, only using logic and reason. I get see how it's confusing for some.
  12. Yelich just run an MVP. How much higher does his potential need to be? He hit 36 jacks and batted .326. oh and 22 SB no big deal... Check out his home road splits from 2016-2017 before you start crapping on him as some kind of fluke. Road numbers the last two years are about exactly what he did this year. And he's at the age where guys are expected to hit their prime. He's in a great lineup with a strong home park for batting. Expecting him to repeat an MVP year may not be realistic, but expecting Vlad to do it once in the next 5 years is equally unrealistic (or more so). Even if yelich doesn't repeat a .300 BA with 30 hr and 15 SB is a very safe expectation. Very likely be bests all 3 of those numbers
  13. I get why you don't think highly of him, but my argument is you were ready to write him off after a good season just because it was a fluke. It wasn't a fluke. There's legit risk his stuff never comes back to where it was, or he battles injuries here on out. The spring ERA is irrelevant. Max Scherzer has an ERA of 6. I'm not worried about spring stats. If Nelson had a 1.08 ERA and 13 K/9 would you feel like he's got SP2 upside all of a sudden? My point is you were making a fuss about his one good year and it being a fluke. There's nothing fluky about what he did. I laid out an example of how a guy can be bad in pretty much every aspect (era, whip, k/9, bb/9, etc) and completely turn it around at 27/28/29 and keep that success. It's not that unusual. Gerrit Cole had been really average 3/4 seasons prior to getting traded to Houston, then was in the cy young convo. Nelson had good stuff and a strong season. He's also coming off a major injury. He may never be the same pitcher again. But he may, also. I also like Freddy. But he had a walk rate that was closer to 5 per 9 than it was 4 per 9. I also have a hard time leaning on a guy who throws his fastball 80% of the time and averages 91 mph and some change on it. After his debut he had 13 starts and pulled down a 4.58 ERA. Guys with BB/9 over 4 don't tend to have strong WHIP, and I think is BAA catches up to him. I tend to trust "stuff" over deception, and Nelson had stuff. Whether he still has it, that's another topic.
  14. Lots of teams have a lot of arms if those are the kinda guys you think block someone. Guys like Pomeranz, Holland, Stratton and Suarez aren't going to block a guy like Beede if he's dealing.
