  1. 2019 First Rounders Discussion

    I don’t think I can get behind Yelich as a late first rounder without the recency bias, I’d rather lock up an elite SP and then get an OF in the second round like Benentendi, Springer, Stanton, Blackmon, Judge (all of whom could plausibly end up having a better 2019 than Yelich)
  2. Corey Knebel 2018 Outlook

    I didn’t mean to imply he’s in elite territory but I would argue that the ultra high K rate offsets the WHIP (which isnt even THAT bad) since it mitigates the damage of guys reaching base. There is precedent for guys having successful stretches as closers with a higher-WHIP-than-you’d-like-to-see-for-a-closer that is compensated for by a dominant K rate (for example Trevor Rosenthal or Brian Wilson) and Knebel is looking stronger on both fronts than most of those sort of guys. Again, I’m not arguing that he is awesome or anything, I was just surprised to see both of those metrics looking the way they look during what seemed like such an awful season
  3. Corey Knebel 2018 Outlook

    You know for all his adversity this year the Ks and WHIP still point to an excellent reliever who is closer material He really just had a bad week or two post ASB and wasn’t given the leash to play through it due to bullpen depth
  4. Ronald Acuna 2018 Outlook

    Would be surprised if he makes it past the second round or first couple picks of third round in 2019 drafts
  5. Better chance of closing in 2019: Norris or Robertson?

    Just to clarify, 2018 pecking order isn’t the question, as super speculative as it is I am looking for best guesses as to who lands in a closer role following offseason free agency...
  6. Better chance of closing in 2019: Norris or Robertson?

    Thanks...just to clarify for everyone else please just take it face value that I have a decision to make that involves making a judgment call right now (i.e. before I know who re-signs) as to which one is a more likely source of 2019 saves...getting into all the league settings and details of why it matters would not be a fun read But I nonetheless interpret this reply as a stronger vote of confidence for Robertson based on current info, so again, thank you
  7. Keeper league transactional decision to be made, one small facet of which boils down to which of these impending free agent relievers I think has the better shot at being a closer in 2019 Robertson has the longer track record, but Norris is a borderline top 10 closer this year and may get some recency bias or possibly even re-signed as the closer by his current club since he has been so steady, whereas Robertson is totally blocked in NY if he re-signs there Thoughts?
  8. Razzball Ralph's Mid-Season Top 100 Update

    No love for the renaissance year Corey Ray is having? Especially since this is skewed toward fantasy relevance, where power/speed threats play up, seems like a glaring omission
  9. Jurickson Profar 2018 Outlook

    He must think he’s playing in the 2017 WBC again!
  10. Joc Pederson 2018 Outlook

    Still just a platoon bat sitting vs lefties, right? If so, tough to use in weekly formats
  11. Mike Zunino 2018 Outlook

    A *loss* of bat speed *can* correlate to a drop in walks if the batter loses time to size up the pitch but there are many factors and I am really just hoping to get some useful insight on the issue at hand ...
  12. Mike Zunino 2018 Outlook

    What the hell happened to his walk rate? Way below career averages, basically a 50% decrease, has he lost bat speed or something?
  13. Brandon Belt 2018 Outlook

    Need to see more to buy in ....I thought he was (finally) turning into something special during the 1st half of 2016...
  14. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    Norris imploded in pretty spectacular fashion as the Angels closer last year after a strong start with double digit saves so I’m sure the Cards are priming Holland to step in at the first hint of a similar meltdown, but I doubt they’ll mess with things until that actually happens, since even at his best this is not the same Holland from 4-5 years ago.
  15. Aaron Altherr 2018 Outlook

    Gabe was quoted after yesterday’s walkoff as saying that they went into the season looking at Altherr as one of their top hitters, which sounds accurate given how much playing time they gave him to start the season, and that they know a lot of his struggles could be chalked up to bad luck... so, I could see him getting a lot more starts this week as they try to ride the momentum, they have plenty of other guys struggling in the lineup who could use a some time on the bench
