  1. 1 hr and 4 steals with 14 games to go? Gotta like his chances.
  2. 1. Trout (I just cant not have him #1) 2. Acuna 3. Yelich 4. Betts 5. Bellinger 6. Turner (any of the next three SS are interchangeable) 7. Lindor 8. Story 9. Soto 10. Arenado 11. Bregman 12. Verlander That's my current first round.
  3. in 20 teamers, do you drop? My playoffs start next week, dont know what to do. The wire is bare, no good pitching options left and i might be forced to just sit on Musgrove.
  4. After that beautiful start to the season, this guy has been a nightmare to own. Such a disappointing end.
  5. Theyve both been in the league for 5 years. We know who both of these guys are, theyre both studs. I generally agree with your strategy, it seems to be the best way to go. It's possible (but unlikely) Mlb may "unjuice" the ball but even if we revert to 2018 levels, SBs are still way more scarce than HRs.
  6. My first point, Turner has missed 10 games in his career due to injuries NOT INCLUDING time missed from being hit by a pitch. Basically, he has been incredibly unlucky with injuries by suffering broken hands/fingers rather than soft-tissue issue which would indicate a durability issue. When Turner plays, he has been an elite consistent performer ever since he called up. Second point, using your own numbers. The HR gap is 15.5 in favour of Lindor and the SB gap is 24.5 in favour of Turner. Exactly my point. You belaboured a huge gap in HR between the two while simultaneously saying the SB gap wasn't that big; the numbers suggest otherwise. I said nothing about Turner being a better batting average bet. Third point, I do believe Turner is the better bet for Runs going forward in 2020. His OBP is better this year though admittedly not by a huge margin but more importantly, Turner has a beastmode offense behind him while Lindor has a mediocre offense. That is why i will "bet" on Turner having more Runs: slightly better OBP, and even if we equalize OBP... a Much better line-up behind him. My stance on these two players is not that one is significantly better than the other, rather these two elite shortstops are incredibly evenly skilled/matched BUT I prefer Turner because his skillset is more valuable in today's game where SBs are so hard to come by and HRs are in abundance. I think your rationale isnt fair since Turner is similarly consistent, balanced and provides monster output. This is not specific to you, but Turner is docked points for health... when in reality, there is nothing to suggest that he is a health liability. That is why i think this perception creates a great buying opportunity for drafters in 2020.
  7. @MSkibisky Appreciate the response, but I dont agree with most of your points. First, if there is a massive gap between the two players in HRs, then there is equally a massive gap between the two players in SBs. The differences offset each nearly perfectly, Lindor more power, Turner more speed. Given the scarcity of speed, I'm pretty sure everyone agrees a SB is worth more than a HR. In that case, Turner comes out ahead in this comparison. Granted Lindor does get more RBI, but Turner is likely the better bet for Runs as his OBP is better and hes got a better hitting line-up behind him. Second, your point on consistency, I don't think either have any issues here. Both have been forces for mulptiple seasons when healthy... speaking of which: Third, health. This is where I think Turner gets docked points but really shouldnt. This creates a great value propisition for drafters next year since I think Turner is being underrated. Not counting HBP, Turner has missed a total of 10 games in his 5 year career which is actually better than Lindor. Turner is in no way a health liability, in fact, he is very durable. Unfortunately, he is extremely unlucky in that regard also. He has been hit on the hand a few times in his career causing him to miss games and lead to gripes from his owners. It's not like he has a HBP problem either, its just that the times that he has been HBP, its been worst-case scenario. All things considered, these two SS players are elite, they are comparable although I think Turners skillset gives him a slight edge. It makes no sense to me that one will potentially go 15 picks ahead of the other.
  8. Posted this in Bench Coach but thought I'd get some more interest here. Im curious as to where people are ranking trea for next year. Specifically comparing him to a guy like Linor, the consensus seems to be lindor, but I can't figure out why. Both are nearly identical in batting average for both their careers and this season. Both lead-off guys but Turner has the better offense behind him and has a slightly better OBP so Turner is the better bet for Runs. Lindor has more Power, Turner has more speed. Lindor has 47 HR + SBs this year. Turner has 44 HR + SBs (even ignoring that Lindor has played 22 more games). Given the scarcity of speed in today's game, the easy choice should be Turner, yet it seems like he is going a full round below Lindor in most early drafts. What am I missing?
  9. Harper, Story, Devers, JoRam for me.
  10. I'd take a shot ob Murphy. Buster has been awful this year, I don't see him turning it around.
  11. Which SS gets drafted higher in 2020? The consensus seems to be lindor, but I can't figure out why. Both are nearly identical in batting average for both their careers and this season. Both lead-off guys but Turner has the better offense behind him and has a slightly better OBP so Turner is the better bet for Runs. Lindor has more Power, Turner has more speed. Lindor has 47 HR + SBs this year. Turner has 44 HR + SBs (even ignoring that Lindor has played 22 more games). Given the scarcity of speed in today's game, the easy choice should be Turner, yet it seems like he is going a full round below Lindor in most early drafts. What am I missing?
  12. He does look lost at the plate right now. I hope he can turn it around and be the force to carry our teams to a title!
  13. Their peripherals are nearly identical. Ks, BBs and Hrs etc. And even that comp may handicap Yarbrough, hes been a completely different guy since coming back from the minor leagues and his slow start. Of course, Ryu has a larger sample size but yarbrough was no slouch last year either. And yarbrough is younger and doesnt have the injury concerns that Ryu has. For 2020, i have them ranked neck and neck.
  14. I think he's firmly a starter now, or at least thats how hes been used the last two months. If were talking comps, hendricks is a good one, but to me, hes essentially a Ryu clone.
