    Even if you are a huge proponent of this guy the ceiling has to be just another guy who can hit 27 home runs, right? Totally justifiable not to scoop unless you are power starved, right?
  2. Tyler O'Neill 2018 Outlook

    Intriguing player but not seeing the path to playing time. Even with regular at bats there is risk that he’ll be one of those dudes whose swing and miss tendencies swallow up their power profile at the major league level.
  3. Preston Tucker 2018 Outlook

    Okay I am now starting to get worried about not adding this guy while I still can... can someone who knows more about him please assure me that he is playing unsustainably way way way above his head??
  4. Corey Seager 2018 Outlook

    So many questions about all this... what is a “sell low” candidate? A player with name value whose stock is low but could still fall through the floor? What is wrong with his throws to first? Why do you say he is at 75%? If there is some glaring problem with his defense that isn’t getting talked about, why is that?
  5. Byron Buxton 2018 Outlook

    Currently on pace for a 259:0 k/bb ratio on the year, is that bad?
  6. Yoenis Cespedes 2018 Outlook

    I think I forgot about just how beastly his upside is when I did my draft ... we didn’t even really get to see what he could have done in last season’s juiced ball environment where everyone put up career best power numbers
  7. Scott Kingery 2018 Outlook

    Yep, agreed, it is not even that clear how big of a fantasy asset their other players would be even with full playing time, so the speculative value plus spotty playing time puts Philly right there with Colorado as an abyss for developing fantasy talent
  8. Gerrit Cole 2018 Outlook

    I still think it is ridiculous that the ‘stros got this guy for so little. I am speaking moreso from a leaguewide competitive balance perspective since the players Pitt got were so low on the Astros’ totem pole of talent, even if technically speaking it was the best haul that the marketplace had to offer. Still, I wish Pitt had kept its cards closer to the vest that they were in “must sell” mode with Cole and pushed hard for a Meadows/Tucker switcharoo as the linchpin, that would have made me feel better.
  9. Greg Holland 2018 Outlook

    Every time I see this thread updated I keep running to see if it means he signed somewhere, so much chatter surrounding an unemployed player! I’m skeptical about Holland actually turning down 3/52 from the Rockies. Other than Bob Nightengale asserting this on a podcast I’m not seeing any coroboration, and every other story line focuses on him turning down the qualifying offer.
  10. Miguel Sano 2018 Outlook

    Ok spring training stats are meaningless but in this case we can see that despite the surgery/weight gain Sano still has the same immense power upside. That ceiling is worth investing in with a top 100 pick for sure. The list of guys who could have a power explosion akin to Judge/Stanton ‘17 is extremely short: Sano, Harper, that is pretty much the list. Chris Davis isn’t one of those guys anymore, and the sample size is too small for Hoskins and Olson. My sense is that MLB will be wringing its hands indefinitely on how to handle this “investigation”, it is just too politically dicey no matter which side they come down on, so they’ll never say anything and hope the public forgets, exactly how the Addy Russell situation was handled (as I predicted a few pages back)
  11. Ronald Acuna - OF ATL

    He did homer off Tanaka and Aaron Sanchez, both well above average MLBers
  12. Brandon Drury 2018 Outlook

    Drury was intriguing for about a month there in 2016 but is really just another Neil Walker at best
  13. Does your Corey Seager ranking/analysis factor in health risk/elbow issues for 2018? (Loved the analysis of what a unique breed of pure hitter he is and agree wholeheartedly, I like how he didn’t walk a ton in the minors but immediately added that to his game in the majors, presumably it was always there but it was just too easy for him to hit everything in the minors)
  14. Delino DeShields 2018 Outlook

    To unlock his potential they need to commit and give him a longer leash than they have in the past...if he sputters just a little, with their OF depth I am worried they will jerk his playing time around too much for him to get comfortable
  15. Jake Arrieta 2018 Outlook

    I think he still has something left in the tank, certainly enough for this contract to be a “flippable” asset at the trade deadline when everyone is looking for another starter (not that that is Philly’s plan, but in case their young nucleus experiences more growing pains than anticipated)
