  1. Manny Machado 2018 Outlook

    Kings Ransom demands went out the window at last years trade deadline. Now they're trading a pure rental player.
  2. Lourdes Gurriel 2018 Outlook

    On DL now with a concussion. Can come off it next Sunday - at least it's ASB so he only misses a couple of games. Though only the deepest of deep leagues need to start him. He's a lottery ticket bench stash at best given his minor league and major league numbers to this point. Unlike some other Cuban players, the money didn't go to the kids head as he reportedly really puts in the work. Just hasn't shown anything since he's been Stateside.

    Baseball players go from sitting on their butts to full sprint to a stop 90 feet away and have to time their strides to hit the bag. Then they go sit down again. It's a recipe for injuries. Guys should be riding a stationary bike rather than taking warm-up swings in the on-deck circle. Or double deck on the bike, on-deck taking swings sorta deal.
  4. Taylor Ward - C/3b Anaheim

    Has there been any article/explanation as to why he all of a sudden is hitting at such a ridiculous clip all season? Did he drastically overhaul his swing or get lasik or something? Why did LAL take him out from behind the plate when his reputation was a defense first (and only) catcher to 3B? If he didn't show a hit tool, why take him away from what otherwise was his only value offered - defensive catcher? And if he was a plus defense catcher and something clicked or changed at the plate - why not put him back behind the plate now because a good defensive catcher hitting like he does is insanely valuable. Is there an explanation? Otherwise it screams fluke aided by PCL. And I say this as a owner - I want it to be real.

    Stripling could have an innings spike issue and head to the BP sooner than later.
  6. 2018 MLB Trade Rumors and Deadline Thread

    Detroit scouting Wade and Frazier for a potential Fulmer trade before the deadline.
  7. Minor League Draft

    Adell-Kirilloff is 1-2 for me from this list.
  8. Miguel Sano 2018 Outlook

    They're working on his swing and they're getting him to drop lbs, so he's likely operating at a pretty high (1000+) caloric deficit.

    I read it was a two month plan when they sent him down. I'd guess August 1st at the earliest if he did a complete buy-in to it.
  10. Blake Swihart 2018 Outlook

    Boston could trade for a ROS rental catcher - One that hits well enough that they could DH or even play some 1B, though that is tougher with Pearce acquisition and Moreland/Pearce platoon now.
  11. 2018 MLB Trade Rumors and Deadline Thread

    If NYY balking at including Justus Sheffield for Machado they're nuts. But then again it might be a case of taking him off the table now to make the big concession when you include him later.
  12. Jose Abreu 2018 Outlook

    Set and forget in Roto, but H2H probably bench him until he shows something. But he'll get red hot really fast, so if he shows something one game - get him in the very next game, don't try to wait and see if it's a thing or a one-off. Also a buy low candidate as owners, such as myself, are getting sorta fed up with him at this point. Any new first year owner might be willing to sell now to stop having to look at his name on their roster at this point of his disappointing season.
  13. SP Jesus Luzardo, OAK

    Next to no chance. He's on an innings cap given he's coming off pitching 43 innings in 2017 after having Tommy John in March 2016.
  14. Vent & Rant Thread 2018

    Truly committed fantasy managers follow all their players wives on Instagram for this very reason... (no, not really)
  15. Hyun-Jin Ryu 2018 Outlook

    Ryu has proven he can't come out of the 'Pen in the past though hasn't he? I think Stripling still goes back because of IP increase issues.
