  1. 2019 Draft Steals

    I really like Matt Olson for next year. His statcast numbers are fantastic - 93.2 average exit velocity, >50% hard hit rate, xSLG of .527 (actual SLG of .454). I'm not sure how much I believe xSLG, but the point is he hits the ball really hard. Plus he's still only 24, and he made some small plate discipline gains this year. His overall line will probably keep his price down, but I still think the guy who went on a massive homer tear to close 2017 is in there.
  2. Jon Duplantier - ARI-SP

    Not much buzz right now. Between the injuries and mediocre performance down the stretch, 2018 was not a good year for him. Probably a good time to buy low in dynasties if you're a believer, because he won't be ranked real high and still has a lot of upside. But he still has something to prove in the minors, so I wouldn't bank on him getting to MLB until mid-2019 at the earliest.

    He’s now played 10 games at SS this season, which is huge for those of us with him in dynasty/keeper formats.
  4. 9/17 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Anyone else throw Erick Fedde tonight? Been pretty good in 2 starts since his return and now facing the Marlins. Two solid innings so far and the Nats have given him a big lead. Next start will be home against the Mets, also a decent matchup.
  5. September Closer Thread 2018

    I don't think Tampa will necessarily use a traditional closer. This is the team that brought us the opener. They do things differently down there. That said, Alvarado has been lights-out lately and should get a good chunk of the save opps, just maybe not all of them.

    I think you might be forgetting someone here.
  7. Ryan Yarborough Win????

    Only the starter has to pitch 5 innings to be eligible for a win. Since Diego Castillo was technically the starter, and he only threw one inning, he was not eligible. The win is then awarded to the relief pitcher who was "most effective" in the judgment of the official scorer. In this case that was Yarborough.

    Caught stealing in the first inning today, goes on to swipe two bags later in the game. That is pretty much the definition of a "greener than green" light. And he's got 3 RBIs.
  9. Moves that made or broke you this year?

    I traded Sal Perez for Matt Carpenter in my OBP roto dynasty league when Carpenter was struggling. I honestly didn't even think it was a very good deal at the time, but I had 2 good catchers (Perez/Posey) and needed infield help, and that was the most logical trade match I could find. Not only did it work out for me, but I'm in 1st and the other guy is in 2nd, and he dropped a slumping Gattis to make room for Sal.
  10. Justin Upton 2018 Outlook

    He’s expected back this weekend, maybe even tomorrow.
  11. Freddy Peralta 2018 Outlook

    My guess is they'll leave him in Colorado Springs and have him make a few starts in the PCL playoffs. After that they could either shut him down or try him out of the bullpen. Doubt he starts in MLB again this year barring injury.
  12. Greatest Season by a Starting Pitcher

    Dennis Leonard had a pretty good case too in 1977. He was 20-12, 3.04 ERA, 2.76 FIP, 7.9 fWAR.
  13. SP Jesus Luzardo, OAK

    Scratched from his start tomorrow. Might be shut down for the season for IP reasons. I'm fine with that. Great year for him, he's still only 20 and has put himself in position to get to MLB early next season.
  14. Luis Urias 2018 Outlook

    LeMahieu and Cesar Hernandez come to mind as comps. He's a better real life prospect than fantasy guy for now, but he's only 21 and he progressed quickly through the minors so power and/or steals could come later. Probably not worth racing to the wire for him unless you're in a dynasty/keeper where he wasn't available until he got to MLB.

    I have no idea why anyone would want to take Santana’s contract off the Phillies’ hands, but even if he was moved, that would just make Bour the regular 1B.
