  1. Anyone for IDPs?

    Wanting to try an IDP league, will do small entry but preferably free. Want to draft sooner rather than later. Later in the day CST (6pm or later) Send invites to Best of luck to you fellas
  2. Randal Grichuk 2017 Outlook

    Ugh, hand injuries make me cringe. I didn't see it but hopefully it's not too bad. Here's some additional reading if anyone is interested: I've only been able to catch a handful of ST games but Grichuk still looked lost on the low/away offspeed. It's a little frustrating to watch [as a Cards fan] given his athleticism. @taobball's post is eye-opening, I knew he was crushing the ball after his recall but damn. As much as I'd love to see it again... I certainly won't count on it. In relation to your post, his MLB career splits suggests he's able to make adjustments in the 2nd half hitting .270 and increases in LD%, FB%, and hard%. Maybe these numbers are a little skewed now thanks to his 2016 finish? Or maybe it's indicative of who he is as a "2nd half" player? I lack the number-crunching experience/abilities that most of you possess so hopefully I can get some insight from this. Is it reasonable to expect him to stay *close* to this profIle or does history suggest it evening out over time? Still only 25yrs old so there's plenty of gas left in the tank to put it together for a whole year and possibly hasn't reached his ceiling yet. If this is the year, I'll have serious regrets not buying at his lowest price. Or maybe just a good in-season trade candidate again?
  3. Off-season Closer Thread 2016/17

    Perhaps a picked a bad day to bring him up (with his spring outing today), but the buzz on Glover had reminded me to look into Zack Burdi. He's been talked about having "closer stuff" and with the White Sox looking to move Robertson, could he eventually find himself in the closer role this season?
  4. Danny Duffy 2017 Outlook

    This is the tweet it was referencing Good time to sell high?
  5. I believe RosterResource will give you what you're looking for.
  6. Deep Sleepers 2017

    Thoughts on Chris Devenski? 344 ADP (via Fantasypros) 108.1 IP 2.16 ERA 0.91 WHIP 8.64 K/9 Without the at-BOS game: 106.1 IP 1.70 ERA 0.87 WHIP 8.74 K/9 Finished 6th in SwStr% (13.5%) among pitchers with minimum 100IP Comparing him to Raisel Iglesias, ADP 188 78.1 IP 2.53 ERA 1.14 WHIP 9.54 K/9 11.6% SwStr% The basic peripherals were there last year all while throwing more innings than Raisel. Quick news search suggests Red's likely to keep closer committee. Even if he is the full time closer, I don't think the Reds will be winning a lot of games in the near future anyways. I'm assuming the ADP is tied to the lack of W/SV or even QS/SV+HD? But if he were to give you 125 IP/115K/2.50 ERA/.95 WHIP, would the ratio stats be enough to outperform the ADP? Does he get a boost in dynasty leagues due to the potential of transitioning to higher leverage situations/starting?
  7. Went through first 2 pages and last 4 and didn't see this question so, my apologies if it's been covered already. Why do people use CBS for money leagues if CBS takes like a $10 cut?
  8. The "Egregiously Early" Top 252 (with player analysis)

    JoFer part was tough, but kinda refreshing in a way. Someone who won't be forgotten and for legitimate reasons. All around a fun video to watch though. I liked the defensive plays being sprinkled in there. Nice work man.
  9. 2017 Spring Training Notes

    Heyward now 2-21. Does his defense continue to buy him PT or could we see Jay and Almora more this season?
  10. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. - IF TOR

    Dang, he tagged that one. Went 1-1 today with RBI double and a walk. Keep it rollin LG!
  11. I appreciate it Rag. The bit about the NYPL I did not know, so I'll be interested in watching how Dalbec develops this season.
  12. Any thoughts on: Kevin Maitan, Atl SS/3B Thomas Szapucki, NYM P Lucas Erceg, Mil 3B Bobby Dalbec, BOS 3B Hoping to see some more 3B in these lists
  13. Lucas Erceg- 3B MIL

    He's quickly becoming a favorite of mine as well. From what I've gathered, the Cal ordeal seems to have been a humbling experience. I hope this drives him to have an incredible work ethic a become a long-term option at the hot corner given the current 3B landscape. I'm not expecting a stud but something in the mold of Matt Carpenter sure would be nice. Also, the slick transfer at 00:25 of this Prospect Pipeline video is pretty cool if you ask me.
