  1. 2019 Offseason Closer Thread

    As an Indians fan Allen has probably single-handedly taken 2 years off my life. He can be dominant in stretches but can also look like he's never thrown a pitch before. I would anticipate he immediately assumes the closer role with the Angels. Buckle in if you're a fan.
  2. Madison Bumgarner 2019 Outlook

    I tend to fall on the side that he's been beaten down a bit too much in rankings. That's primarily because his health has been a continuous question mark the past two seasons. I really, really hope he comes in to spring training healthy ("best shape of his life!" even) and stays that way so we can see where he is. I suppose it's possible he's on a steady decline, but I'll need to see a long stretch of healthy ineffectiveness to believe it.
  3. Jose Ramirez 2019 Outlook

    I love me some Razzball, but Grey's rankings this year (so far) and last year have been pretty bonkers. Ramirez is top 5 at worst for me, probably more top 3.

    Razzball has him #20 overall. The overdrafts on this guy are going to be legendary.
  5. 2018-19 Off-Season and Hot Stove Thread

    There are definitely teams that just straight-up can't afford Harper or Machado, but it seems like it's the insistence on 8-10 year contracts that makes teams buckle and lose interest. I can't say I blame them. These contracts just don't end well and are more likely than not going to be an albatross for your franchise. Seems like shorter contracts at a higher AAV would be preferable to teams. It would also drive up yearly salaries depending on the player, which would seem to be what the union wants.

    Roster Resource has Tulo pushed to the bench, Torres at SS, DJL at 2B. Makes sense as an upgrade to me.
  7. Wow, this has to be a new record. Now for the long, arduous task of getting the commish to renew the league so I can see what all his hoopla is about.

    Fingers crossed Bumgarner doesn't get in a bizarre accident or suffer a fluke Spring Training injury this year. I feel like he hasn't been completely healthy in years now.

    Unless it's a deep dynasty league he should be able to be had at a price that can't hurt you this season. I had forgotten just how heinous his 2018 was with injuries and this bleeding eyes line: .156/.183/.200 in 28 games. Nowhere to go but up...right?

    The O’s just traded Breyvic Valera, who was the only semblance of a threat to steal PT from Villar. He would have to tank like never before to get benched this year.
  11. I’m with @Flyman75: does anyone have any screenshots from the basketball platform to clue us in? I only play fantasy baseball, so I don’t know what changes were made. I initially couldn’t stand ESPNs baseball platform, but it grew on me enough to not propose a switch to the commish. Guessing we stay with it, regardless, but I’d love to know what’s so awful about what’s coming.
  12. ESPN down for maintenance beginning today.

    I think so. Miller is honestly more valuable to teams as a multi-inning fireman. Decent amount of risk in this signing considering his injury-riddled 2018.

    Jonathan Villar. Played well after being traded in the second half last year, could play all over the field, and should have the green light with Showalter out of the picture. Yes, the O's are going to be stunningly awful again, but he's locked in to the top third of the lineup, is entering his age 27 season, and has proven capable before. Razzball just wrote him up today, as well: https://razzball.com/jonathan-villar-2019-fantasy-baseball-sleeper/
  15. Kyle Tucker 2019 Outlook

    Seems like either the Astros are planning to move Reddick or Tucker can be had for the right price. I'd like to think with a strong spring Tucker can crack the starting lineup if Reddick is traded. Count me in as a distraught dynasty owner...lol.
