  1. Pullin had a .789 OPS at home (83 at bats) and a 1.302 OPS on the road (74 at bats) going into tonight's game. In tonight's away game he went 2 for 4 with a HR and a double.
  2. Another away HR tonight (his 6th) . In addition, his home OPS was 1.010 (82 AB's) and his away OPS was 1.026 (70 AB's) coming into tonight's away game.
  3. I had him on my prospect roster last year and realized the power just doesn't seem like it's ever going to be there (kinda tough for a corner outfield profile). He looks to have great instincts and could definitely be an asset in an OBP league if he could win a regular job.
  4. I'm a Phillies fan, so I'd love to see it as much as the next person, but you can't force a call up when the player blocking you is playing well. Joseph was horrible to start off the year, but has been red hot lately (another HR for him today) - if Joseph reverts back to his early season form it wouldn't surprise me to see Hoskins up in June, but for right now to call him up they'd need to remove another player from the 40 man roster as well as bench a starter who doesn't deserve it.
  5. He's not on the 40 man roster which always complicates things in addition to Tommy Joseph playing much better lately which gives management two built in legit excuses to continue to wait on a call up. The Phillies also aren't going anywhere this season with or without Hoskins so they have no reason to rush him up.
  6. I couldn't possibly agree more, which is why I indicated I was fairly certain (obviously can never be 100% certain) that what was stated was code speak for "he's being kept down for team control reasons".
  7. I'm fairly certain the "need to see proof", "no hurry" approach is simply organization speak for "won't be called up until we're 100% sure we get an extra year of team control out of him".
  8. Still there as far as I can tell:
  9. Yeah, I'm having very similar issues and the owner won't budge. I think the key is ultimately going to be offering something we're not willing to part with instead, so I'm carefully analyzing future strengths and weaknesses on my dynasty team to try and figure out which prospect I'm not willing to currently trade that will leave the smallest hole position wise. It's beginning to look like a scenario that will be worth it in the long run.
  10. There has been no official confirmation, only speculation on Tommy Pham/Harrison Bader. Given that they've lost both Piscotty/Fowler and have an open spot on the 40 man roster, it's at least a possibility.
  11. I feel like I read this exact same analysis with respect to Giolito (not from you, but in general) a year ago.
  12. Here's the existing thread on him: http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/596358-delvin-perez-ss-stl/
  13. Indeed. It's a 16 team league too, folks were stating before the season started I was looking like the team to beat. Right now I'm the team everyone wants to play, haha. It's almost comical at this point.
  14. In one league: Starting Lineup: Lucroy/Morales/Villar/Bregman/Correa/Springer/Polanco/Bautista/Piscotty/Bird Rotation: Lester/Verlander/Carlos Martinez/Quintana/Maeda/Lackey/Gsellman/Velasquez Anyone want to guess what place I'm in?
  15. Thanks Hanghow - it's actually a "draft anyone in the world that hasn't lost their prospect status or previously been drafted" league. I had picks #2 and #6 and went with Seth Beer and Ronald Acuna. Eloy went #1 followed by Beer, Senzel, Louis Robert, Moniak and Acuna. (I drafted Benintendi and Otani last year in the first round) I toyed with Senzel as well, but already had Bregman and was looking for long term options at 1B and OF.
  16. And kept it going tonight: 2-4, 1 BB, 1 2B, 3 RBI, 2 R's, 2 SB's Really hoping he turns into something special - drafted him at #6 overall in a dynasty prospect draft this year and was mocked for it by several teams. Might have been able to snag him in the 2nd round, but wanted to make sure I didn't miss out.
  17. Not sure if that's meant in jest or not, be he hasn't been a prospect since 2015. He's fared well at AAA Iowa so far this year, but his K's/BB's ratio is very underwhelming (11 K's to 8 BB's through 24.2 innings).
  18. I never liked the 5 year contract they gave the aging Gurriel at all given his lack of proven ability to hit MLB level pitching coupled with 1B not being his natural position. I thought the organization had plenty of existing depth in Reed, Moran, Gonzalez and even Tyler White to try out before spending recklessly at the position. They also had plenty of depth to trade for a for more proven veteran 1B type if any of those individuals didn't work out (i.e. Votto, Abreu, Adrian Gonzalez,). Instead, it's very possible that Gurriel becomes an instant sunk cost of close to $50 Million.
  19. Wondering if everyone should go drop Blake Treinen at this point.
  20. Just wondering if any headway was made with this? I'd really love the ability to be able to ignore specific threads so that I don't have to see them when they're bumped. Thanks so much.
  21. One of my personal sleepers for SP holds is Mike Minor.
  22. Matthew Pouliot just wrote in his latest column that Capps will open the season on the DL. Has this been confirmed? I haven't found that mentioned anywhere. I could understand if Capps doesn't look anywhere near ready after today's outing and so forth, but if his stuff/velocity looks good, why not let him start the season in the 'pen? I could see limiting his appearances early in the season, but he's not someone I'd want to keep off the active roster if he's ready.
  23. Yeah, that same question was asked in his last chat as well and he gave the same answer - no top 100 ranking but in the 50-55 FV range (which I thought was a bit low personally). An actual ranking estimate would be more helpful.
  24. His defense is fine (and where he provides the majority of his value these days), but he's actually hitting .132 through 38 ST at-bats, is coming off a .631 OPS season (absolutely horrendous) and hasn't had an OPS over .800 since 2012. He's shown flashes of brilliant power over the years, but I've never considered him an elite hitter for fantasy. He has been, and will continue to be, on my do not draft list. As far as the complete package is concerned, I would agree that Eloy is not ready to take over for Heyward as he still has much to work on (hasn't even faced A+ pitching yet in the lower levels and has a poor K's to BB's ratio, so he needs to continue to work on refining his hit tool to pair with the power/athleticism to increase his chances of success at the MLB level), but Heyward is absolutely an albatross contractually in my opinion.
  25. He only included signed prospects on the list - he mentioned Otani as likely being #1 if he were eligible.
