  1. Matt Olson 2018 Outlook

    Was looking over his Statcast/batted ball data the other day and thinking Olson looked like a good buy low. His exit velocity and hard contact rates are elite, and his slugging % should be a lot higher. That buy low window might be closing quickly though after today.
  2. 7/22 - GAME DAY THREAD

    I saw "bunt single to shortstop" for Carpenter and was really curious what happened. I figured the Cubs had to just be in an absurd shift, and they were.
  3. SP Jesus Luzardo, OAK

    Scoreless streak up to 33 after tonight. 5 IP, 7 K, 1 H, 1 BB.
  4. Ross Stripling 2018 Outlook

    Stripling is 28 and threw a lot of innings at Texas A&M and in the minors. I don't think they'll worry about an innings increase the same way they would with a 21-year-old top prospect. This will likely be his career year. His future is now.
  5. Yasiel Puig 2018 Outlook

    It wouldn’t make sense to short side platoon Puig because for some reason he can’t hit lefties. Which is just more reason he’s likely to be getting squeezed out.
  6. Sickels mid-season top 50 is out...

    The FV grades Fangraphs uses make sense. But of course people ignore them and ask why #44 is so far ahead of #89 even though they’re both 50 FV.
  7. Taylor Ward - C/3b Anaheim

    It's fairly neutral. His ISO has been .237 at Salt Lake compared to .176 at Mobile and the environment probably accounts for the difference.
  8. Razzball Ralph's Mid-Season Top 100 Update

    He's definitely the low guy on Keibert Ruiz at 143.
  9. Brandon Nimmo 2018 Outlook

    Has to get on base first.... But beyond that, he's never really been much of a base stealer. Last year he had 2 in 436 PA between the minors and majors. The most he's ever stolen in a season was 14 in 2014.
  10. Razzball Ralph's Mid-Season Top 100 Update

    Kirilloff at 15 surprised me. I really like him and think he's generally underrated, but that seems too high. I don't see how you rank him ahead of Yordan Alvarez, who is only a few months older and blazed thru AA while Kirilloff just got to High-A and hasn't done much there yet.
  11. Razzball Ralph's Mid-Season Top 100 Update

    Alonso has a .698 OPS and 30.9% K rate as a 23-year-old right handed first baseman with a poor glove in a hitter-friendly park in the PCL on the AAA affiliate of a bad NL team that plays in a pitcher's park. All that said I'm still a big fan of his, but he has his share of negatives and risk factors. I think 39 is a pretty fair spot.
  12. Keibert Ruiz- C Dodgers

    Two homers and a double tonight. Been a rough year at the plate but that pushes his OPS back over .700 at least. Still a lot to like given he's a 19-year-old catcher in AA. He's all over the place in midseason rankings, but if he can start to go on a little run he may get more consistent love.
  13. Freddy Peralta 2018 Outlook

    Yeah, I read it wrong. Looks like they just want him to throw during the all-star break to stay fresh, and he should be back in Milwaukee afterwards.
  14. Freddy Peralta 2018 Outlook

    Just got optioned back to AAA.
