  1. Keston Hiura 2B MIL

    moreover, he is ready. the dude is so darn polished. I love watching him hit. He is like a dreamier version of Luis Urias.
  2. Too much for Altuve. WHIR

    I like the Votto side, mostly because Snell has become an ace
  3. New free dynasty league Fantrax

    so it's a free league with essentially 20 keeper spots? I'll bite. Is that team still MIA?

    Deep 14-team dynasty (I'm in 2nd place; 124 points to first place's 127 points) I woke up to find a random Mike Trout offer in my inbox. I've never been lucky enough to own Trout in a league. I received: Mike Trout Todd Frazier Adeiny Hechavarria Desmond Lindsay Lewin Diaz Christian Vasquez I sent: Trea Turner Rafael Devers J.T. Realmuto Colton Welker Khalil Lee gutted my depth... but my thinking was "acquire Trout, ask questions later"

    Arenado is a beast, but I like the thinking here. Guerrero and Kopech have insane upside - and seem highly likely to be stars - and Trammell has fantastic upside, too. Years down the line I bet this will seem like (mild) thievery.
  6. Jordon "Jo" Adell - OF LAA

    upside of this magnitude is rare. I don't think that's a bad idea at all.
  7. welp, I went through with it. thanks for the help. as a general rule, it seems like you've got to overpay, if you want Trout in a keeper. and this didn't feel like that much of an overpay, if at all. Mike Trout. Welcome aboard! (now to... err... figure out what to do with my gaping hole at shortstop)
  8. Is this too much to give up? It's a keep-anyone-forever league with 80-man rosters (40 Minors) Trout is a God but it definitely cuts my depth a bit. Plus, Devers is only 21 and Trea is only 24. Here is the trade offer: I receive: Mike Trout Todd Frazier Adeiny Hechavarria Lewin Diaz Christian Vasquez Desmond Lindsay I give: Trea Turner Rafael Devers J.T. Realmuto Colton Welker Khalil Lee and here is my roster: Thanks for your help!

    super deep 14-team dynasty where CarGo and Kinsler were on my bench ≈ 70% of the time: Sent: Brusdar Graterol, CarGo, Kinsler Received: Keston Hiura, Peter Lambert, Austin Pruitt Graterol has been terrific and was the hardest piece to give up, but I'm a huge Hiura fan. After the trade I immediately dropped Pruitt for Santiago Espinal.
  10. Greg Bird 2018 Outlook

    I'm with you. I've been trying to sell him since this offseason, but no one is biting. Long swing. 35+ homer power, but outside of a few white-hot streaks it seems like he goes 0-4 or 1-4 every game.
  11. Seuly Matias, OF, Kansas City Royals

    second biggest prospect riser after Juan Soto? dude is 19 years old. slugging .664. on pace for 68 home runs (given a hypothetical 162 game MiLB season) looks good in film too. 6'3, athletic, explosive. I don't think the bat speed is Acuna-level or anything like that. Sometimes I get a bit of an Adrian Beltre vibe, something about the swing mechanics. bottom line: I don't think this is a Jhalen Jackson, Jabari Blash experience. There is enough pedigree here that Seuly should be ascending prospect lists like a man on a mission.
  12. Austin Meadows 2018 Outlook

    gotta throw a little credit toward this Pitcher List dude: ... But if I were a betting man, I’d bet that Meadows will rise to the occasion... upon facing higher quality competition, I predict he will sharpen things up and tap into a new level of focus. This isn’t an unheard-of phenomenon. Sometimes, talented players get challenged at the highest level, and their truest talents come out – like a reserved, unsure aspiring Jedi who shows tremendous strength and courage when faced with an imminent threat from an evil overlord, or when dark forces conspire to threat those who are innocent. Despite the underwhelming Minor League stats, Meadows is going to get on base, steal bases, and score runs... Maybe I’m a sucker. Maybe I’m a sucker for the gloss of his raw, undisputed talent. The numbers are the numbers are the numbers. But I predict he is going to produce and play his way into most 5-outfielder leagues. rest of article did a goofy hypothetical about how Meadows whole career will play out... bit zany but I enjoyed it.
  13. Dylan Cease - SP CHC

    I liken him to McCullers. Really good stuff with elite strikeout potential. Might have a lot of 6inning/9K/3BB performances. I like him a lot and it seems like his stock is on the rise. Classic case of a talented player getting overlooked because his franchise (White Sox) is loaded with high-end prospects. I nabbed Cease as a bit of a throw-in this offseason in a deal for Mike Soroka, and feel pretty good about it.
  14. Jordon "Jo" Adell - OF LAA woah! the way the ball jumps off his bat... that was a superstar swing right there. what kind of upside are we looking at here? might be so high on the mountain, it's hard to see
