  1. Hey guys, can you help me out a little again? I'm doing quite well currently leading my league but I feel there might be some regression and there are weaknesses in my roster. Here is my current roster: c : realmuto, astudillo 1b: Encarnacion, miggy 2b: altuve, mcneil, jose ramirez 3b: jose ramirez, Matt carpenter (hoping for turnaround) Ss: de jong, correa OF: puig, conforto, mcneil, schwarber, buxton, robles, verdugo Util: ohtani SP: nola, mikolas, bieber, ray, boyd RP: givens, Chapman, pressley, kimbrel (still holding on), Britton, iglesias, rogers I feel I have an over abundance in the IF (league has 2b, ss, 3b and If spot) and OF is not so great. Pen I feel is good, SP not great but Ok. Would you sell high on one of the "overperformers" like de jong, McNeil or boyd? Or make another trade? Release schwarber or matt carpenter for a waiver pickup? Since I'm leading my league by a bit I feel I can wait a little and dont need to sell low on some struggling guys but of course not everyone of them might turn it around. Thanks, dominik
  2. Thanks, not really worried about ramirez yet. Anything else I should consider?
  3. Imo nats should bring him up. Not a great SS but can play there and better bat than difo. As for the service time they still can send him down for two weeks later in the season. Sure he could force the nats to not do that by raking like Soto but that is not super likely and even if it is this is not the end of the world, but more likely at some point he will have a slump that warrants a send down. The nats just can't afford to give up any more ground with the phillies being improved after adding Harper, realmuto and segura and the Mets being better again too.
  4. I like hampsons skill but the Rockies front office is extremely old school (anti sabermetric) and they often cling on to veterans. Would be worried about playing time.
  5. Hey guys, I need your help. I play in a 10 team league with a little strange format. We lost two teams so league captain decided do add more hitting spots to not make as many good players available. We have 1 c , 1b, 2b, SS, 3b but also one 1 IF, 4 OF and two util spots. pitching we have 3 SP, 3 RP and 4 P spots. 6 bench spots. So the league is 10 team but might play more like a 12 team? We have head to head categories: H,R, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG W, L, SV, hld, era, whip, 25 min innings limit Our league also starts next Monday because draft was yesterday due to a severe illness of a league member. Here is my team: c : realmuto 1B: miggy 2b: altuve 3b: Ramirez SS: correa OF: Puig, schwarber, nimmo, conforto Util: encarnacion,Robles IF: senzel (probably up soon if healthy again after all those reds injuries) Bench: Buxton,astudillo,dejong,kang SP: nola, mikolas, ray RP: Chapman, Kimbrel (hope he signs next week), Iglesias P: Pressley, givens, boyd, Lester Bench: Reyes, Skaggs Any tipps? I feel my IF and C is very strong but OF kinda weak. Pen is also strong especially if Kimbrel comes back soon but SP kinda weak. Where would you make moves to improve without sacrificing too much of the strengths? Thanks, Dominik
  6. Yes he has pop. Problem has been that he is a ground ball machine, over 50% for his career and so far not getting better either this year. Altuve was a 50% grounder guy too and he improved that to low 40s. If urias can improve that to low to at least mid 40s in the majors I think he can hit 20 homers. Not everyone learns to do that (hosmer so far) but many players slightly do lift the ball more as they get older. Some need a major swing change like JDM but I wouldn't recommend that with him because his swing is already working to hit very well. Would prefer a gradual small adjustment to get him slowly to 42-45% grounders rather than trying a major overhaul and make him a fly ball machine like JDM or Jose Bautista. Now the latter could work but it could also lead to becoming Jason Hayward with his constant tinkering. Imo his hit tool is too good to risk that, just try to use pitch selection and small adjustments to get a few more balls in the air. If he hits 15 that is nice, 20 would be great, anything more is a bonus.
  7. I think it is a bad sign for his attitude and work ethic if he gets discouraged by those things rather than seeing it as a motivation. Other guys have been pissed too by service time manipulations like for example kris Bryant but he responded by mashing and not by crying foul and sucking. I realize his babip is low and his k rate is ok but at 280 his babip also isn't super low and his ISO is currently well below average too. He needs to get over it and start ripping some extra base hits.
  8. Well the Astros have a really good team. He probably would already be better than their 25th roster guy but you don't want a top 10 prospect in baseball to be a 4th outfielder who starts twice a week.
  9. I'm not sure what to expect from him. He is a very good prospect and has good pop but I think his hit tool might not be the greatest (isn't a low K guy, pulls a lot and also not low pop up rates). I could see him becoming a 260 hitter with like 25 homers which isn't all that rare in these days were everyone hits bombs. However I could also see him becoming a 290 hitter with 35 bombs which would be huge. If it is the former he isn't really that much of an asset in shallower leagues. If it is the latter it is great but I wouldn't invest in him yet especially with the roster crunch the Astros have which could delay him further or give him a part time role before he finally gets a starting job maybe in 2020 or so.
  10. bat is definitely ready. are they just waiting for super 2 deadline? or does his glove need some more time? could put him in an OF corner right now but they probably want to develope his glove at 3B. they say he has improved there but probably not quite mlb ready. might be a september callup. his bat will be great, K/BB rate is great and power is also coming. could use a few less balls on the ground but that is really nit picking.
  11. wasn't really his plate discipline but contact. plate discipline got slightly worse but was still very good at 25% O-swing, 12% walks. problem is contact, probably due to batspeed going because of his physical decline and injuries. still not a good outlook. also I don't buy he can play 3B, not with his banged up body.
  12. I love bautista, he was one of the best hitters the last decade but I don't expect anything of him. problem is he is physically done having basically shot joints from the ankles up to his shoulders. he once was a great athlete with a great arm but last year he was about the slowest guy in baseball running almost like pujols, kemp and some others. he always was a little injury prone and that won't get better at 38. if he has a couple good weeks before his body is hurting again that would be great but I wouldn't expect too much.
  13. I think the org likes him but he was literally striking out half the time. it was not because he was being patient either, chase rate up to 34% and no contact with pitches in the zone at 67% (about worst in the majors). he started to turn it around a little last week but he will need to show something before they bench zobrist or baez who have been raking over him.
  14. I think he will hit 35-40 again but I think he is a 260 hitter or so. K rate improved but the z-contact rate is not supporting the 20%. also he is pulling the ball a ton and probably isn't a super high Babip guy. still a very good asset with the homers, good team (RBI and runs) and solid OBP due to the walks. he could be a new adam dunn. this sounds like an insult because dunn was so bad in the end but in his 20s dunn was really good hitting 250 with a 400 on base and 40 bombs.
