    Not everyone plays 10 team standard leagues with no keeper incentive.

    They got Adam Jones. And he was very good for a while.

    Phils commit an error on back to back plays. Followed by a wild pitch. You're on thin ice already Pivetta But hey it's the O's so... Pivetta gets out of it unscathed

    Not really sure what's confusing about my post about moving from o-ranked 140 to 20 to 3

    Draft him next year, but I'm in a 16 team league that doesn't count QS. Nothing extraordinary, but I'm inclined to hold onto him as he gets further and further away from that injury

    No one thought he'd hit 40. In last year's draft he was o-ranked at about 140. I wanted to take him with my first overall pick at like 110 or something. I risked it, waited, and still got him. What I saw was a kid who was pretty good at everything and was improving at every level. But hey, I think he's 26 in a fly ball era. Going from 29/19 to 35/20 hr/sb wasn't a horrible hope. This guy is that rare guy who has shown linear growth. I was saying at the beginning of the year that you could take him end of the first round because 30/20 300, at 26 yrs old, in a loaded lineup is worth even more that. But hey he's at 27/19 now before the all star break and you're telling me you'd wanna draft arena do before him because of name recognition. That's just the silliest thing ever. That's like saying I'm not gonna draft trout cause bass tastes better. As in basement of the standings. Wake up and actually open up his player page. Check his career progression, and erase any doubts you have about a "Ramirez" being able to ball. He proved you wrong last year and you didn't select his numbers at face value in the 2nd round. That's on you, but don't make the same mistake twice.

    Prepare to eat some humble pie. He's basically in spring training right now. Joey Gallo is a Mendoza line hitter. Shave some home runs for BA and u get bird.

    Hi. My name is rumplestiltskin and I just wanted to clarify that joram is on pace for a 110-40-110-30-300 season. But yeah, he's gonna go outside of the top 3.

    Birds not a superstar but he's a good player. There is nothing wrong with a 260 30 guy who can take a walk. Rest assured Yanks are looking at Machado for 3rd, not a 1B.

    CRodon at 61 pitches through 5. Cruising

    And there I was looking at my team stats so far 2/16 with 2 runs 2 hr and 5 rbi's. And there I was changing the TV station to the Indians game

    CRodon got squeezed hard on that walk. I mean I'm watching MLB live so I don't get to see the pitch, so I guess it must be a glitch in the system.
  14. Do NOT drop Gray. Players get demoted every year. They work on mechanics, get a confidence boost, and have a triumphant return. Good if unspectacular ratios with an abundance of K's is on the horizon. Aside from 90% of the game being mental. He has top 20 SP upside. Bieber does not, but they both have the same floor... In AAA. Invest in talent, not what have you done for me lately.

    I forgot to add. Keep 7 going into next year. One less keeper every year
