  1. 2019 First Rounders Discussion

    I could honestly see Altuve going at a relative discount next year. Doubt he was on many championship teams this year and some have probably soured on him. Not saying he's still a first-rounder, but with 2B on the whole being iffy, he's still plenty valuable. Edit: Also worth noting that Jose Ramirez will lose 2B eligibility next year in ESPN (16 appearances in 2018), so Altuve will carry even more value there.
  2. Franchise Player: Altuve or Judge?

    Thanks for the input, guys. I'm similarly torn. I wish both had been fully healthy all season so I could make a better decision. Is Altuve fully healthy? Are his best seasons behind him? Just not sure. I may need Judge's homers more at this point since I also have Cruz rolling off. I should also add that whoever is chosen will likely be only for next year. I'll have Soto rolling off after next year and, barring a face plant, I can't imagine he won't be my franchise after next season.
  3. I play in a contract years league and both Altuve and Judge are rolling off this year. We are allowed one franchise player, who we can keep indefinitely but must declare a change by the end of the season. Strasburg is my current franchise, but it seems like keeping one of Altuve or Judge would be the more prudent move. Who do you guys prefer heading in to next season. Here's a general look at how my team looks heading into next year with players I'll still have under contract: C - Sanchez 1B - Bellinger 2B - Altuve (?) / Villar SS - Rosario / Villar (if he gets enough appearances for ESPN) 3B - Franco / Camargo (will have to address this in the draft) LF - Soto CF - Benintendi / Bellinger RF - Judge (?) / Soto BN - Kyle clue what to expect out of him Thanks for any help!

    Fingers crossed he gets to 20 appearances so he'll have SS eligibility out of the gate in ESPN. Really like him for next year, too.
  5. September Closer Thread 2018

    I believe Allen only closed because Hand had thrown two innings the night before.
  6. Moves that made or broke you this year?

    MADE: Picking up Brantley Picking up Jose Martinez Picking up Soto Picking up Newcomb (at least for the first half) BROKE: Sticking with Kyle Seager as every good 3B pickup was made by other teams Sticking with Paul DeJong as every good SS pickup was made by other teams My season mostly melted down because of injuries to Judge and Altuve, plus Gary Sanchez being injured and ineffective. Missed the playoffs by a couple games.

    ESPN has him down for two, @MIN, CHC

    Is this him in the midst of being taken over by Vigo the Carpathian warlock in Ghostbusters II?
  9. Jose Altuve 2018 Outlook

    Not starting him in a weekly. This has slowly escalated since he first went on the DL. Need to hear some good news soon.
  10. Jose Martinez 2018 Outlook

    I was about to say, how can they be expected to trade him when they're killing his value by not playing him? No idea how this ends, but he's managed to put up the numbers he has despite being banged up for awhile. Not sure how it ends for this season.
  11. Jose Martinez 2018 Outlook

    He's banged up and seemingly out of favor anyway. Bummer he didn't get moved. I'll wait until the end of the week to make my final evaluation, but he's sure looking like a drop right now.

    This does look really bleak on the surface. It's just a matter of how much OF playing time he gets.
  13. 2018 MLB Trade Rumors and Deadline Thread

    This day could be fun yet. Totally did not see the Pham trade coming.
  14. Jose Altuve 2018 Outlook

    Anyone else getting increasingly concerned? The team made it sound like the injury was no big deal, then he winds up on the DL and we haven't heard a peep since.
  15. Eduardo Nunez 2018 Outlook

    He should handle 3B as long as Devers is on the DL, but beyond that it seems like his PT could be iffy.
