  1. Ya and I think he's 100% correct on this. His pointing out the power grade in comparison to Madrigal is especially on point. Fangraphs are certainly not immune to stubbornness and l think is exactly the case for it. I recall how they refused to budge an inch on Yordan Alvarez and we all see how that looks now...
  2. Sano is still way under the radar this year but even in a record year of power numbers he has stood out...
  3. I own Robert but I think his downside is much lower than Acuna's simply due to the BB/K issues. His upside is pretty damn high though but not sure it's in the Acuna stratosphere (ie challenging Mike Trout). That's no slight towards him though because we are still looking at a guy who could go 30 homers/40 steals. As I say it I am starting to get an Alfonso Soriano vibe going here...
  4. to me Sano is the easy pick. Ya he strikes out a lot but Schwarber is only a .230ish hitter so what's the upside with him?? Sano has a higher lifetime ba, has more power (would be amongst the league leaders in homers and ISO with enough at bats) and has 1b and 3b eligibility (Yahoo that is). He was so bad last year that a lot of people are rightly unsure of him but in comparison to Schwarber he's the pick...
  5. I think he's just one of those taken for granted type of players that is basically going to have to do this for another year to gain full respect. I think the overall fantasy draft view next year will be that you won't probably reach for him but will take if he falls into your normal drafting order. If he repeats his stats next year then I would think he would get full credit...
  6. Could you also earn two holds in a game too then?? Leave, get the hold, come back in hold again...
  7. I don't know if this is interesting as a discussion topic or not but I do believe it's common belief that you can only get a hold or a save in a single game. However, it dawned on me that earning both in a game was possible while watching a Reds game when MLorenzen came in with a lead, held it then was shifted to the outfield with another pitcher coming in behind him to complete the inning. I don't recall if Lorenzen actually went back into the game but if he had the following makes sense to me: 1) Lorenzen had already earned the hold after being removed as a pitcher 2) Had he reentered the game and finished the game he would have earned the save as well. This becomes more clear to me had the relief pitcher behind Lorenzen blew the lead during that inning and the Reds came back to take the lead during their turn at bat and Lorenzen went back to the mound to finish the game. Am I missing something in this scenario? Is anyone aware of it actually occurring? Since holds are not actually recognized as a mlb stat not sure it matters much outside of the fantasy world...
  8. Power/speed combo of 24 homers and 59 steals after his first 162 games in the minors. This after zero homers last year... Other career numbers: .321 BA, .398 OBP, slugging .545, OPS .943 which all takes into account last year's empty numbers...
  9. Neris and Diaz gave up a combined 8 runs 2/3 of an inning.
  10. one opener away from gaining sp eligibility in yahoo formats. Had a good year in Triple A last year with 78 Ks (20 bb) in 46.1 innings and 9 saves but was also pretty hittable with a whip over 1.40. Looks like he doesn't give up a lot of homers though and has a 50% GB rate thus far this year. That's pretty good with all the strikeouts. Not to be confused with the Tigers' pitching version of Austin Adams...
  11. And yet Bell's bullpen numbers are still tops in the league... I think it's called fantasy butt hurtedness...
  12. Why???Of course it would be great to get both guys but it all depends on what the Giants can get for them together vs separately...
  13. It's not a surprising response. However, you can actually see it in his face that he knows it's been long enough and is now at the ridiculous stage. If you want to keep Shaw then get rid of someone else. Not that hard to figure out...
  14. Ya I own both he and WRamos in a 12 teamer (one catcher) and they have really little trade value as everyone has decent enough catching options themselves.
