  1. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    If you value him as a 6th/7th rounder in redraft and a 20ish overall player in dynasty daynlokki, I'm really not sure what all the discussion is about. That is one hell of a valuable rookie either way. I think mentioning him in the same breath as Soto an Acuña is fair and I really don't think he carries significantly more risk than either of them. Seems like a lot of minimizing Vlads talent and value for just saying he's a awfully nice fantasy asset at the end of it all.

    Again, daynlokki preaching caution with prospects is great and warranted, but criticism of a prospect just for the sake of criticism isn't. Where would you rank Vlad in redraft/dynasty as a 3b and as a 1b? Who are guys you'd put in the same tier in both formats? Gotta put your money where your mouth is and make a specific call on Vlad. Put it on tape so we can look back and see who was right and who was wrong.
  3. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    I don't think a single person doesn't recognize that all prospects come with risk. Amongst prospects, given that they are all risky, Vlad carries about as minimal amount of risk as a prospect can IMO I'm just not sure what the actionable advice for fantasy purposes here is daynlokki. Is it, don't count on Vlad to be a HoF performer right away? Well sure. Don't count on Vlad to be a impact contributor right away? Again, well sure. Don't count on Vlad to ever be an impact performer? Possible. Vlad won't be more than a league average talent? To each their own I guess. Don't bother rostering him, he's a Jay and his defense will always hold him back? I can't buy that. Other than urging caution about all prospects in general, which I agree with, what is it that you are forecasting for Vlad and when. Are you arguing it is more likely than not that he will bust ala the names you mention?

    Prospects obviously do fail. For any number of various reasons. Claiming that minor league numbers are not predictive of major league success is just silly tho. There is literally nothing about his bat at this stage that doesn't scream impact major leaguer.

    WTH kinda tee ball level pitching staff are the Tigers trotting out there? That's a good offense, but these guys are embarrassing themselves.

    As impressive as his final line will end up being for a 20 y.o, I am most impressed with how quickly his approach at the plate has matured. Its like watching the evolution of a batsman on fast forward. What takes guys months if not seasons to accomplish, he is mastering in days and weeks. Watching he and Soto play the game for the next decades is going to be fun.

    Could not be more impressed with the way Acuña continues to improve his approach. Kid is a special talent.

    Marquez has been dam impressive lately. Kid is throwing like a legit ace. So strange to say about a Rockies SP.

    One of the uglier QS I've seen, but it still counts.
  11. Nathan Eovaldi 2018 Outlook

    It's hard to give up this many base hits even if a SP is intentionally trying to pitch to contact. I'm not even sure we can still assume Eovaldi is actually trying to make it hard on the hitters. Throwing straight meat and just hoping it goes at a fielder.

    Eovaldi throwing BP yet again

    Love the dude, but that CS today at 3rd to end the 4th inning with his team down a run and Zobrist in a great hitters count....well, kids gotta clean those kinds of rookie ball mistakes up. That was for real not smart. Its nit picking a great season I know, but as wl as he's played he's got plenty of room to grow.

    Nola at 102 pitches. Working in the CG, SHO. Be interesting to see if he comes back out for the 9th.

    Come on Mook. Snap out of it.
