  1. Joey Votto 2018 Outlook

    Sucks to play in those hyper competitive 2 category leagues I guess. Really man, there are no dings in Vottos armor. 35 yo is the only even slightly negative to the profile. You buy Votto and you know exactly what you are going to get as seasons end.
  2. Joey Votto 2018 Outlook

    He didn't have a bad second half by any measure. .327, 10 HR, 32 RBI, 41 R, excellent advanced metrics In combination with his past performance, there is simply no way to read that as a negative let alone label it as "bad". Stirring the pot just like the 2017 thread is all I see here. Guy is likely the best overall hitter in the game.
  3. Shohei Ohtani - SP/OF Japan (was: Otani)

    Really hope he goes to SD. Upcoming young team with a great pitchers park. The franchise could really use some marquee talent and the combination of Otani and Hosmer, if either happen, could really vault them into contention. Just my preference.

    Easily. Like stealing at that point.
  5. Alvin Kamara 2017 Season Outlook

    2 for 37 with a TD and 3 for 5 week 3 5 for 25 and 10 for 71 with a TD week 4 10 for 75 and and 3 for 12 week 6 9 for 57 and 5 for 50 week 7 8 for 28 with a TD and 3 for 48 week 8 Those are his performances leading up to the acknowledged elite 5 game stretch. None of those performances are bad showings. Normal variation and limited usage. Really weeks 1 and 2 of his rookie season are his only poor outings.
  6. Alvin Kamara 2017 Season Outlook

    He ain't Bell...yet. That said, he has proven a lot more than nothing. He doesn't have the suspension and injury history either. Markedly younger as well. In dynasty formats it's closer than some make it sound.
  7. The two-way player issue...

    I whole heartedly agree that turning one MLB player into two fantasy players, one a hitter and one a pitcher as if they were completely unique players is ridiculous. I think its far more plausible that on the days an owner puts him in a pitching slot he acquires pitching stats and on the days he is in a hitting slot he acquires hitting stats, not both simultaneously regardless of the position he is started in. That said, I don't know how complex a change it is for the coding to be implemented to allow this. I just know I don't want to see one player eating up two roster spots or even worse a single roster spot on two different teams.

    GD it Trout. I need the best player in the game back. Today!

    Man, Trouts late season swoon is killing me. Come on Mike!
  10. Head 2 head playoff updates.

    Down 0-3 thanks to Godley, Wood, and Martinez's flat outings in combination with a Trout led punchless offense. This after finishing first in both record and total points. Yeah, baseball!
  11. Carlos Martinez 2017 Outlook

    Obviously don't know Martinez personally, but strikes me as a kid with all the arm talent in the world that struggles with the mental/emotional part of the game and that prevents him from reaching his potential. Not sure if head case is the exact correct word to describe that, but that's where my use stems from.
  12. Carlos Martinez 2017 Outlook

    Down 0-2 in the championship and hating the fact I have to rely on his head case to keep my hopes alive.
  13. Im 100% on the side of doing whatever it takes to get it right as often as possible, but I also 100% agree with the above. I have essentially zero question that an automated system would be both more accurate and more consistent than humans are capable of and I think any fears expressed in hacking/tampering is pure hyperbole. That said, I would be disgusted to see replay applied to calling balls and strikes.

    WTF Godley? Plugged you in over Nola and this is how you start out?
