  1. A.J. Puk - SP OAK

    Looking for a mid-season return. Here's two recent updates:
  2. Prospects Live Top 100 Prospects

    Yeah, Eddy's response was odd when asked about Ruiz and Bart ("Would you rather a backstop that will provide solid numbers for his position or an upside lower level player who has a chance to bust out and provide awesome numbers? The answer was easy for us"). It was odd to me given their peak projections for Danny Jansen at #61 and Francisco Mejia at #78 - both peak projections were very uninspiring. His reasoning for omitting Greene at least made more sense to me (agree or disagree): "Hunter Greene was just too risky to put in a top 100 right now. A 100 mph fastball isn't enough especially when it can lack movement and he's already had elbow issues. Pass."
  3. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Yeah, quantity offers would never work with me to get Vlad regardless of short term title aspirations or immediate team needs - it would have to involve at least one long term top dynasty asset in return and even then on a case by case basis. Short "cool story bro'" anecdote - I joined a league previously where another manager (unfamiliar with my track record) sent me such an offer (I believe it was Harper at the time when he was first drafted) along with an essay containing multiple psychological plays to try and convince me why I was getting the better deal long term, why the name of the game is to accumulate the greatest volume of each individual stat category (along with other "these aren't the droids you're looking for" type passages). I rejected it instantly, let him know we weren't even speaking the same language and never received another offer from him. That was like 8 years ago - and every trade that guy makes involves him getting the better player and giving up lesser players to managers that rarely make the playoffs.
  4. Baseball Prospectus 2019 Top 101 Prospects

    I prefer their fantasy 101 that typically comes out a few weeks later given that's it's more geared towards our collective needs. As far as general content goes, I can barely peruse it anymore since the majority of relevant analysis went behind a paywall.
  5. Rockies Prospect Hell-Signing Murphy?

    From a recent Denver Post article: "The veteran infielder officially signed a two-year, $24 million contract with the Rockies on Friday and will become their primary first baseman." "Primarily a second baseman, Murphy has played 225 games at first during his 10-year career. He acknowledged that at this point in his career, first base is a better fit, also saying that he was “never elite” at second." “Full disclosure, I’m probably more comfortable at first base than I am at second,” Murphy said. “After speaking with (manager) Buddy (Black) and Jeff, it feels like that’s where my best fit is going to be. I’m just here to fall in line with a ball club that is ready made, basically.” With Murphy taking over first base, the Rockies plan to switch Ian Desmond to the outfield, at least most of the time." https://www.denverpost.com/2018/12/21/daniel-murphy-two-year-deal-rockies-world-series/
  6. Rockies Prospect Hell-Signing Murphy?

    It's being reported they're signing Murphy to play first base - everyone can breathe again.
  7. Week 13 injury thread

    Vulture. A really annoying one.
  8. Week 13 injury thread

    Yep - just read he was immediately ruled out and looks like he indeed re-injured the foot. Most likely done for the year. EDIT - in watching the replay, it looks like it was the stress of pushing off as he started his route.
  9. Week 13 injury thread

    Non-contact right leg injury - has not returned, no further update yet.
  10. Week 13 injury thread

    Greg Olsen just limped off the field, looked to be in a lot of pain.
  11. NFL Waiver Wire Thread 2018 Week 13

    Correct (though it was actually on a Friday) - thanks for the correction. I just checked and the number of adds that day for him on Yahoo was 383,612. Ware still demolished it for sheer volume.
  12. NFL Waiver Wire Thread 2018 Week 13

    It was a lot, but definitely wasn't that many - something like 350,000 on waiver day itself because his pick up alert came after his game was played so the pickup was spread out from Sunday to waiver wire day (typically Wednesday). Ware's pickup came after weekly waivers processed and was one of (if not the biggest) single day "mad rush" add I can remember. The final tally yesterday was 608,558 adds on Yahoo alone.
  13. NFL Waiver Wire Thread 2018 Week 13

    No doubt - he was incredible, but what I meant was that Ware may be the single biggest one day add in FF history in terms of sheer volume. He's been added in over 604,000 Yahoo leagues alone today.
  14. NFL Waiver Wire Thread 2018 Week 13

    Nice job - likely changing my team name to Waiver Ware in honor of what may be the single biggest one day FA acquisition in the history of fantasy football.
  15. O.J. Howard 2018 Outlook

    Couldn't agree more - the words "second opinion" are among the worst you can hear as a fantasy owner.
