  1. 5 Keepers - WHIR

    I'd personally take Nola over Whit as your fifth
  2. Eh. The offers aren't terrible, but I think you'd need 2 type 1A prospects (Acuna, Torres, Eloy, Senzel, etc), plus 2ish 2nd tier prospects (Honeywell, Mejia, Keller, etc) for a deal to make sense. Bryant is one of the most valuable players you could possibly own, and we all know prospects are extremely hit or miss. Don't sell yourself short
  3. Points dynasty, keep forever, no costs associated. Who are you rolling with? Luiz Gohara Trevor Bauer Dinelson Lamet
  4. The two-way player issue...

    Is there an announcement somewhere about this?
  5. David Dahl 2018 Outlook

    If I can get him at a good, reasonable price, I would absolutely love to have him. I'm not going to draft him in the 10th or anything and take some big risks, but he could be such an incredible value if he's going near the end of the draft

    This is the year! No seriously, guys...
  7. 2018 Speed Guys

    Zack Granite is a super speedy guy that nobody outside of Minnesota probably knows. He's looking like a 4th outfielder at this time, but could be worth monitoring, though more for trades than if he starts- Buxton/Rosario/Kepler is a pretty solidified starter group,and Granite isn't close to forcing the issue at this time. He'll need to work on his bat skills, but if he gets consistent playing time somewhere and can get on base, he'll be a great speed guy

    I'm a Twins fan, but potentially biased, but I love him. Has solid 20 home run power, close to 30 HR power, and .265ish should be a good floor for his batting average. Maybe .305 as a ceiling? He hung around .300 for a good portion of the year last year before eventually finishing at .290. He typically hits around the 5th-6th slot, so should be plenty of RBI opportunities. Plus, he'll steal 5-10 bases. Love him as a fantasy asset
  9. Miguel Sano 2018 Outlook

    Let me be clear, the fantasy impact is one of the least important implications of the claim that was made against Sano. However, I've talked a lot about the non-baseball side of it all elsewhere and the TLDR of it is that this needs to be taken very seriously, but we need way more information before we can make a judgement either way. All that said, this is a platform to discuss fantasy baseball, so I'd like to talk about the fantasy impact of this The biggest thing to worry about from solely a fantasy impact with this is a possible suspension. Right now, it's way too early to tell if there should or will be one, as again, there's way too much we don't know. But if it turns out the allegations against him are true, I could see a pretty significant suspension looming. Maybe half a year? Up to a full year? I really don't know, this is a bit of uncharted territory in the MLB. On the flip side of things, if he's found innocent or nothing can be proven against him, I could still see a suspension handed to him, but maybe only up to 15 games It will be very interesting to see how the MLB handles this. There have been a few domestic abuse cases, but this is a bit unique

    Congrats, you just convinced me not to throw him back in the player pool in my leagues. He was someone I was on the fence about in my keep 20
  11. Brian Dozier 2018 Outlook

    All my point was is that Dozier has steadily improved since making it to the majors. That's something that should make you feel better about only being 2 years removed from being a .235-.245 hitter if you're looking at drafting him. Not saying he'll hit .270 like he did last year or improve on it, but you shouldn't expect him to drop all the way back down to the .240 range either
  12. Brian Dozier 2018 Outlook

    I hear ya. It frustrates me a lot sometimes that he pulls everything. But his path to where he is now should make you consider him differently than a player that went from doing nothing relevant one year to having 2 great years. Just thought that was worth mentioning as another thing to consider
  13. The two-way player issue...

    I'm a programmer and I'm not affiliated with Yahoo whatsoever, other than having an email account with them I simply don't believe the bolded part from Rabbit is true, IF their system is built in a way that's modern and not archaic and unnecessarily complex. It shouldn't be very difficult to make him work as a hitter or a pitcher (as one player), but if their system is clunky and outdated, I can see how it would be a huge pain in the a** to do it. I think that's essentially the point that tonycpsu made in his post too- I'll be honest, I've only skimmed it so far Basically it shouldn't be difficult at all, but I wouldn't be surprised if how Yahoo does fantasy things is really clunky and outdated, in which case it could be extremely difficult
  14. Brian Dozier 2018 Outlook

    One thing to keep in mind is that Dozier has really improved over the last few years. He wasn't someone that came up and immediately found great success. As a Twins fan, I can tell you he's worked hard to improve his game over the past few seasons, so I wouldn't worry about the low BA from a few years ago as much as I would in another case
