  1. Hmmm, your only post in this thread, I sure missed you, thanks for the troll.
  2. Beltran to Hou on a 1yr deal. Most likely DH with the occasional start in RF. Could see another 30hr season, 80-90rbis with a 280ish ba in that park and lu. Probably the best place he could've landed a contract. edited to say, 30 may be a stretch, or homerism, at least for my dynasty team, but 25? I'll take it.
  3. Look above my post, bluejaysin2030 posted this: Only 415PA... But seriously. I still can't believe some people doubt him. The kid has wheels and power. What more do you want? Even if he hits .240, would you be upset when it comes with 10-15SB and 25+HRs? At SS? Damn. That's what I was replying to, he asked if anyone would be upset at these numbers, so I replied that Semien put up those numbers last season, man,m I knew someone would get their panties in a wad... I was quoting bluejaysin2030, he posted those numbers, and asked if anyone would be upset, my post about Semien was in reply. because Semien DID put up those numbers. sheesh, reading 101,
  4. Before anyone gets their panties in a wad, I am NOT saying he's Semien, but these numbers are, Semien went 238, 27 and 10, would you really be happy if Story does this?
  5. How is your team built? Contender or project? Team Weakness? OF construct? Identify where you want to upgrade first, then you can identify who to target, it's hard to give you names if we don't know where you need help. Either way, his value coming off his worst season isn't what it could be, so the prudent play may be to hold and see, name value alone might net something of value, but he's been trending down on the SB's, which puts him back in the field as far as OF'ers go. Put his name out there, let the league know he's available, see how the rest value him in your league, but again, without knowing where you need upgrades, pulling names out of thin air won't be of help to you. Help us help you.
  6. When I first saw this thread, it put a smile on my face, I thought, FINALLY, a platform for us dynasty owners, where we won't have to sift through the keeper/redraft posts, looking for player information, from a dynasty perspective, alas, then I saw it included all keeper leagues, my fear here is that we're going to morph into keeper/redraft talks with round values, cost escalations and everything else associated with keeper leagues, that us dynasty owners, that keep entire rosters, have no use for. Oh well, just another thread.
  7. Forgot to include my league and settings: Full dynasty, keep all: 12 team, 27 man roster, 4 dl slots. Daily. h2h, 7x7, BA,H,R,RBI,HR,SB, ops, and, W, whip, era, QS, holds, S, K. 4 moves per week 20 prospect milb rosters, as well as all off season transactions held on proboards. We have a 5 round,1st year prospect draft held in September, to insure all elig draftees are signed, international players, 16year olds included, our 1 flaw is all other international players 17 and older are FA's, free to be added at anytime. CBA changes could force us to make a change here, but it'd be for the good, imo. Other than that, all FA's can be added during the off season, be they ML, milb or international players signed and 17 or older, again, hate this, as it serves only a few in our league, but seeing the attrition rate even with international players, it's not that big a deal with a few exceptions. Picks and spects can be traded and often are. This will be our 5th season together, with 9 original owners, good group of owners, we vote on any changes, in season to be implemented at the start of the next season, or during the off-season, we have no in-season changes.
  8. There needs to be clarity on distinguishing between "keeper leagues" and "dynasty leagues" while posting here in the dynasty thread: for me, dynasty = keep everyone, no draft for your ML team, farm teams, or minor rosters, ( same thing, simply for clarity), are normally part of dynasty leagues, so the hope is, we can discuss prospects here as well, seeing as this is a dynasty thread. If you don't keep your entire roster, it's not a dynasty, that's a keeper league. Settings need to be clear and concise, if you implement a cap, be it ip, starts, abs, or whatever, make it clear that your league settings supersede the hosting sites lack of software to enforce your caps, make your cap a HARD cap, your rules and setting are the end all be all period, (you know there will be that person that tries to exploit loopholes in the hosting sites software). Whatever your settings are, make sure everyone agrees and is on board with them, be it a 5x5, 6x6, etc, if your league is full of die-hard, baseball fiends, and they all want, say 9x9? as long as everyone is on board and happy, do what works, if they're casual fans, friends and family types, the simpler, the better. Dynasty leagues can be a great experience, or they can be a nightmare, all depends on owners and rules/settings.
  9. I'm going to piggyback on FouLLine a bit, been trying to draft this sentiment, but couldn't articulate it as such. First , I try to assemble my milb roster to coincide when I'll need a replacement on my ml roster. Secondly, I won't hesitate at a chance to flip my prospects for ML talent, For reference, my OF consists of Trout, Springer and JD, no real "need" for a replacement for a few more years, health permitting, so I roster guys a few years away: Soto, ( thanks to this forum for bringing his name to my attention), Rincon, Lazershow, they afford me the opportunity to watch them develop and assess their future before a need arises, if they flame out, I have ample time to adjust. I take this same approach with every position, more examples, but I won't list them. Now a second part example: Fawkes, I'm sure you'll like this one: Mid-season I traded for Bogaerts, had J Mateo on my farm, the trade made Mateo expendable for the right deal, a team rebuilding needing a SS came asking about Mateo, flipped him for Renfroe, (he was happy with his OF, both ml and milb)who was later flipped in a package that included Glasnow for Bumgarner to shore up my rotation. every league has that one prospect hoarder, my favorite trade partner. Many viable approaches, but this works for me.
  10. The A's signed him on July 2nd, he's listed as their 11th prospect on MLB.com. Probably going to have to wait for a year or 2, but I can't wait til he plays in Stockton for the Ports, right in my backyard,, I'll make sure to give some reports when I see him.
  11. Renfroe at 54, I noticed that has spent time at the ml level, otherwise, most of these prospects have zero service time at the ml level, tells me they basically cleaned up the list, removing almost all of them that have made their debut. Not sure what criteria they used as far as AB's and IP for elig to the list, but that's my take away. Decent list for those with deeeep milb rosters, but I do see others missing that haven't debuted yet. Long ways away, but did not see Lazarshow listed either, to me, he warrants a spot over some others here, but good to see a list in October, even if we don't agree with it.
  12. Anyone else make it to round 3? Curious about other l/u's. I spent large on Lackey and Kershaw, LA supporting cast hasn't shown up though. Have to hope my Cub pick show up and produce. Anyway, good luck to those still alive. 100 places pay.
  13. You can see your rnd 1 score, go to your lu page, directly above where it says Baseball fill in the blank, mine says silver cup, round 2, there are these tabs: Live, upcoming and completed, click on completed.
  14. Couldn't pass on the duel in SF, looking, or rather hoping for another 1-0 game, 2-1 would suffice, had to go both Jake and Bum, alot of low cost players that can produce available to fit both these arms. Good luck everyone..
  15. Not a waste of time, I do like the numbers games, was simply curious, most times, someone is trying to make a point value wise with these comparisons. Alls good I've been a long time fan of Drurys' game, playing time issues were his hurdle, but after this season, and the managerial changes in Ari, I hope he's proven himself to warrant more playing time moving forward, love his hit tool. Could see him becoming a stalwart in the lu for many years for Ari. Own him in a dynasty, position flexibility helps too.
