  1. Paul Goldschmidt 2018 Outlook

    Just accepted the deal. It’s an OBP league but I’m #1 in that category and already have freeman. If abreu gets dealt at the deadline it only helps me. I wish goldy the best, but I seriously could see this elbow ending up like a seager tommy John category. Pollock down for the count sealed the deal for me. I’m not one to overreact but the red flags are there. Goldy is a class act and HOF player, hoping he straightens it out. If last September/oct wasn’t a thing I wouldn’t have budged yet.

    I appreciate some feedback on that. the proposal is still on the table. Besides steals and about 15 runs per year, if you compare the two, their stats are actually not as far off as you may believe though. With pollock out for an extended period, RBI opportunities and solid pitches are only going to decrease (not that they have any reason to pitch around him these days lol). You look at the guys drafted right ahead of abreu, I can’t see any sane owner shipping a JoRam, votto, rizzo, Springer, Donaldson, even a bellinger for him right now. It’s sad how heavily I need to consider Abreu right now. goldy’s 0-4 tonight doesn’t sway me back anymore either.. I realize this is th Goldy thread but just throwing that out there. Pollock going down on top of Lamb already makes that lineup pretty damn average.

    Was just proposed Jose Abreu for Goldy in a 1 for 1 deal. 6 weeks ago i would have laughed. The elbow appeared in September and he hasn't been himself since. Might very well pull the trigger on this, especially because it seems his days of being a 20-25 steal threat is behind him no matter what, but that's obviously the least of our worries now.

    Throwback to when I thought this was 20/15 potential and actually thought spring training could matter

    100% agreed with this take. Personally I feel like the window to get some top 3 rounds ADP value back is closing quick when opposing managers click that name and see the 0's across the board the last 2+ weeks. It's brutal looking & a tough pill for them to swallow. Crazy enough, he only has 4 less runs than Freeman. Name value alone should give Goldy owners a solid chance still to reel in a stud though.

    Given the fact that you did foresee a bit of regression both with HRs & steals, are you in the camp that it is an overreaction to sell asap on him, or do you think these other things are more than enough to warrant jumping ship?

    I am in agreement here that there is something else besides the humidor & mental situation in play. The aforementioned hard/soft contact rates have been ongoing since last September as @kidtwentytwo showed us. Took this former beast 10th overall in a OBP 12 team roto league and thought it was a godsend. At this point i am hoping for a 1 for 1 deal, netting me either Rizzo/Votto/Abreu in that order. If not, I may even throw in a piece. A springer or a JDM (yeah right) would also be welcomed with open arms in a 1 for 1 scenario. Overall, I think the elbow may be in play here, something very Seager-esque. I'm trying to hop off the train before it becomes public that he is damaged goods.. Two weeks ago I never thought I'd be saying this. It's too long of a season to take this risk, and name value alone should at least net in a push if he somehow turns this around.

    I've been on the patient side of things this entire time but this is getting scary, and these numbers speak for themselves. Are we in agreement that if you can get a Rizzo for him, you do it? Goldy has been as consistent of a rock as they come, but the sell window may even be closing. What about an Abreu? With Pollock hitting the way he is at home, the humidor can only be so much of an excuse.. At this rate I feel like aborting mission may be wise, as these advanced metrics and large 500AB sample size are no joke.

    Steals or not... that’s terrifying
  10. Tommy Pham 2018 Outlook

    MRI did reveal irritation with his hip abductor. Pham the gamer says he's going to try to give it a go tonight but I'm not holding my breath. The dude has been a monster all year but these consistent health hiccups are scary. Wondering if it would be wise to sell high on his .442 OBP and 20/30 pace once that DTD clears next to his name.. It's tough because he's actually returned value from that ~55-60th overall ADP but he's due for slight regression no matter what as it is, health not included..

    Thank you, beast 4th round ace of mine
  12. Blake Snell 2018 Outlook

    Benched him away @nyy and that move move paid off. I still think it’s too early to trust him @ Boston. Anyone else brave enough to start him or are we holding off this week?
  13. Travis Shaw 2018 Outlook

    @garlando's summary was all i needed to be convinced. Scooped him up around 90th overall and after a brief slow start, it looks like he will repeat/improve on last year. Finally has the healthy top of the order ahead of him with Yelich and Cain. Barring their health, he should start consistently have more hittable pitches with them setting the table. .280 30 and 105 seem very doable. I've lost Rendon but haven't missed a beat with Shaw's hot week and a half. Here's to his continuation!

    The tigers are what we know they are, but nevertheless, good to see a guy with an unproven track record continue to silence the teams he is supposed to. Another 8IP 2 earned and 4 hits scattered. Here’s to hoping this continues!

    6 walks in 3 innings after only walking 1 guy in his first 2 starts combined. Haven’t been able to watch today’s game, ugly statline though
