  1. Garrett Hampson 2019 Outlook

    So back to square one... I still think Hampson has a leg up in the competition due to his performance so far in MLB compares to that of McMahon's
  2. Vidal Brujan, 2B, TB

    Not only did he jumped to top 100 list in 2019, but the Top 3 "Most Trusted Prospects Ranking" sites all have him top 50! FG #26 PL #33 IBW #38 I think to this point, he might still be a bit underrated; but I think the ranking will continue to creep up! His floor is already pretty amazing, if he ever develops some more power! OK I am drooling now... lol
  3. Prospects Live Top 100 Prospects

    So, in this combined top 100 ranking, Brujan is more of a #3 prospect in the TBR system rather than a #7 (per top 30 list). It would be nice to inter-relate the different lists since it's from the same site; I get the human stuff as explained by the author, but once they have the combined top 100 list cooked out, I would think it will be easier to re-rank the top 30. Looking strictly the TBR prospects: PL has Brujan @ 33 and indicated that he is #7 TBR prospect, but there were only 2 TBR prospects ahead of Brujan in Franco and Honeywell. #3 McKay, #4 Sanchez, and #5/#6 Lowes/Lowes were all ranked behind Brujan on the PL Top 100 list with the Lowes' not even on the top 100 list. It can get confusing.
  4. Luis Severino 2019 Outlook

    There were talks that he was tipping his pitches; also, Gary Sanchez's inability to block the ball or even catch the ball as well as his own laziness did not help. He got better in Sept. and I expect him to get back to the elite status.
  5. Garrett Hampson 2019 Outlook

    Can you imagine how high the value of Hampson will be if he was indeed traded to the Red Sox with a firm grip at 2B job? That lineup, that ballpark as well as the rest of the AL East (except TBR) Ballpark would make him an interesting pick!
  6. Andrew Benintendi 2019 Outlook

    OK that was a bit old now that I used it previously..... But this is how I see it, both Yelich and Beni came up to the show at the tender age of 21. In his first 3 years in the MLB, Yelich had the following lines ('13-'15) Year Age Tm Lg G PA AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB CS BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS OPS+ TB GDP HBP SH SF IBB Pos Awards 2013 21 MIA NL 62 273 240 34 69 12 1 4 16 10 0 31 66 .288 .370 .396 .766 112 95 4 1 0 1 1 7/8 2014 22 MIA NL 144 660 582 94 165 30 6 9 54 21 7 70 137 .284 .362 .402 .764 115 234 9 3 3 2 3 *78 GG 2015 23 MIA NL 126 525 476 63 143 30 2 7 44 16 5 47 101 .300 .366 .416 .782 118 198 13 2 0 0 2 *78 2016 24 MIA NL 155 659 578 78 172 38 3 21 98 9 4 72 138 .298 .376 .483 .859 135 279 20 4 0 5 4 *78/D MVP-19,SS 2017 25 MIA NL 156 695 602 100 170 36 2 18 81 16 2 80 137 .282 .369 .439 .807 120 264 13 6 0 6 4 *8 2018 26 MIL NL 147 651 574 118 187 34 7 36 110 22 4 68 135 .326 .402 .598 1.000 164 343 14 7 0 2 2 *798 AS,MVP-1,S And Beni had the following lines..... Year Age Tm Lg G PA AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB CS BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS OPS+ TB GDP HBP SH SF IBB Pos Awards 2016 21 BOS AL 34 118 105 16 31 11 1 2 14 1 0 10 25 .295 .359 .476 .835 118 50 0 1 1 1 0 7/8 2017 22 BOS AL 151 658 573 84 155 26 1 20 90 20 5 70 112 .271 .352 .424 .776 103 243 16 6 1 8 7 *78 RoY-2 2018 23 BOS AL 148 661 579 103 168 41 6 16 87 21 3 71 106 .290 .366 .465 .830 123 269 9 2 2 7 1 *78 While the park could be a factor, but Yelich had 21 HR in his 4th year in the same ballpark he was in the first 3 years of his young career; the spike in HR total in his 4th year is a natural growth as a hitter as part of the projection Yelich is to be. Beni is just 24 years old going in 2019, some players are still in the minors or about to debut in MLB at this age and he is already going into his 4th year in the majors. Park factor or not, I see Beni continue to improve as a hitter. His OPS in 2018 was the highest of all three years and Yelich's highest in the same span was 118. Patience is the key to many talented hitters and Beni is definitely one of them. I learnt my lessons for giving up on Yelich and I will urge Beni owners to exercise patience.
  7. Andrew Benintendi 2019 Outlook

    That's what people said about Christian Yelich too and then... Boom! Dude won 2018 NL MVP! You just never know....
  8. Andrew Benintendi 2019 Outlook

    Agree, even in dynasty I wouldn't have spent first round pick on Beni; many other options to choose from in first. For redraft, I would have gone late second round to early third on him.
  9. Joey Bart - C - SF

    Problem with Bart is he is way too aggressive and will often chase pitches outside of the strike-zone. Power is certainly for real but what kind of BA are we looking at once he reaches the show? Based on his current underlying stats, I do feel that he will struggle with his BA and hovering around .250. That being said, he is still developing so who knows, maybe in 2019 and beyond he learns to be more patient and have better idea of the strike-zone, if so, his status will fly.
  10. Jake Bauers 2019 Outlook

    I would say that somewhere in that range but likely a 5-10 spots lower IF he does it in 2019 and we are talking about 2020. The stats I stated in my original post could make Bauer around 65, however, his eligible positions are 1B/OF and his stats won't rank it that high with those two positions and thus the 5-10 spots drop. However, he is not proven, so he obviously is not being considered even a top 200 player right now. His adp is #250sh at the moment. I was based on the article I posted for his potential stats; his HR should grow some in Progressive Field (that right field can help!). I agree that 180 between R+RBI is lofty, 140-150 R+RBI is a good estimate in an improved lineup. On SB, base on his 2018 50% SB success rate, I don't believe he can be 20 SB in 2019, but a bit improvement in BA and 1 year experience under his belt, he can certainly steal around 15. I see him as a sleeper.
  11. 2019 Sleepers

    Very good point too, Slatykamora. If he is someone's #8 SP, I think that someone is doing fine with his draft. I have Anibal as a potential pick from my dynasty league this year, but do have others like Musgrove and McHugh, among others as options.
  12. 2019 Sleepers

    Anibal's FIP last year of 3.62 does show that some regression could happen; also, you are probably looking at an inning count of no more than 150 IP as his last three year's inning pitched were 153.1, 101.1, 136.2. With all this in mind, I would say he is a top 250; I am sure some will reach for him a bit like Magoo mentioned; but the fact that he can't pitch deeper in the game really hurt his value.
  13. Ronald Acuna 2019 Outlook

    I agree, I am a big Acuña fan but I don't see 40/30 in 2019; at some point in his career, he will but to say he will at 2019 that's pretty high expectation on the kid. I hope he does of course, but won't hold my breath for it.
  14. Ronald Acuna 2019 Outlook

    Great point, I miss the part where he actually had the K% decreased a bit. I think we will see continuous improvement.
  15. Ronald Acuna 2019 Outlook

    I see Acuña as a very minimum 20/20 player with a good chance to be 30/30 player and his BB% of 9.2% last year is close to above average; while he did strikeout 25% that might hurt his BA, But even that, considering that he had a career minor league K % of 21%, I see him improving from that 25% in his first taste of the majors. Taking him in first round is obviously for his tremendous upside but I am willing to take the risk here knowing that his floor is a 20/20 .265-.275 BA and .330 - .340 OBP.
