  1. Shohei Otani - SP/OF Japan

    https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Help-with-Fantasy-Baseball/C-Chris-Gimenez/td-p/269924 To anyone in yahoo leagues, you can be almost certain that only Shohei Ohtani's SP stats will be used. Even though Gimenez was not a valuable player, he did meet position eligibility requirements for both both catcher and pitcher. The comments in the link attached explain that since his regular position was catcher, he was never given pitcher eligibility. I assume an exception will be considered to avoid complaints. Adding a 2nd separate Ohtani for offense only seems reasonable.
  2. Shohei Otani - SP/OF Japan

    Is this true that espn is doing that? I cant find the source for that anywhere. Can you post a link?
  3. Yahoo's win percentage calculation

    That makes sense, on yahoo's league standings page, both teams are listed at .509. But maybe thats meant to only be informative and they use the formula that you posted to determine the better record. Just a strange situation because team B has their head to head tiebreaker. Logically, I thought team A's additional 2 wins and 2 losses (.500) would decrease their overall win%.
  4. Question on how yahoo determines end of season ranking for a head to head league: Team A's record = 107-103-10 .509 win% Team B's record = 105-101-14 .509 win% Team A finished in 4th and made the playoffs according to yahoo, but if you calculate the exact win%, team B has a greater win % (.5097 vs .5095) Any insight would be appreciated.
  5. Miguel Andujar - 3B Yankees

    If that is the case, do you expect Gleyber Torres to start the year at 2b/ss?
  6. August Closer Thread 2017

    Doolittle pitchung to start the 8th inning? 2 inning save or is someone else getting an opportunity in the 9th?
  7. August Closer Thread 2017

    Herrera's last pitch was a fastball that came in at 91, trainer and manager came out to look at him and quickly taken out of the game. Maybe an arm injury here? Who is next in line in KC in case it's something serious?
  8. Victor Robles - OF WAS

    Most important stat for Robles - 0 HBP since August 1!
  9. Aaron Judge 2017 Outlook

    Agreed, I realized that after...was just looking into comparable players because it doesn't make sense why his numbers are this good. A lot of people look at him like 1st round value, but I'd still look at him for next year as a .230- 250 hitter with 25-35 hr. Wanted to know if I'm on my own or other people agree.
  10. Aaron Judge 2017 Outlook

    How would you guys compare him to a 2007-2009 Jack Cust? So far this season Judge may finish with the highest hr/fly ball% in the past 15 years with 37%. For comparison, Giancarlo Stanton's career hr/fly ball is about 26%. If you take 11% from Judge and turn those fly balls into outs, he is down to about 26 home runs and a .263 avg at this point in the season For comparison Jack Cust 2007-2009 had a very similar k% of 30-32%, bb% and line drive/fly ball/ground ball % were also similar according to fangraphs. Jack Cust 2007-2009 '07 .256 avg 26 hr .355 babip 31.7%hr/fb '08 .231 avg 33 hr .306 babip 29.7%hr/fb '09 .240 avg 25 hr .319 babip 17.7%hr/fb So if Judge maintains a Jack Cust level k%, but drops down a more reasonable babip and hr/fly ball%, is a .230-.250 avg with 25-35 hr probable? Best case scenario would be if can have few Ryan Howard type seasons, with high ks/high babip/high hr/fb%, but just wanted to get a few thoughts on whether people are avoiding him next year because of the low floor.
  11. Anthony Rizzo 2017 Outlook

    I thought position eligibility automatically transfers over to the next year. Rizzo should have 2b eligibility in yahoo for 2018? If that's wrong, can you explain?
  12. Future Top Prospects

    I've been trying to update a list of top prospects who should be available in yahoo in 2018. Are there any international FA signings from last month who are worth keeping an eye on? (Maitan/Vlad Jr. types)? Hunter Greene, SP Cin Kyle Wright, SP Atl MacKenzie Gore, SP SD Sixto Sanchez, SP Phi Corbin Burnes, SP Mil Alec Hansen, SP ChW Michel Baez, SP SD Mitchell White, SP LAD Keiburt Ruiz, C LAD Yordan Alvarez, 1b Hou Brendan McKay, 1b TB Colton Welker, 1b Col Paven Smith, 1b Arz Keston Hiura, 2b Mil Bo Bichette, SS Tor Royce Lewis, SS Min Luis Robert, OF ChW Estevan Florial, OF NYY Austin Hays, OF Bal Jordan Adell, OF LAA
  13. Victor Robles - OF WAS

    Haha, pitchers will hate him if he does stuff like this. Can't throw him inside.
  14. Victor Robles - OF WAS

    He's off to a good start in AA, but he just got his 20th hbp of the season...that gives him 88 in 1,358 plate appearances for his career. That means he is hit by a pitch in over 6% of his plate appearances. For comparison, the one guy who had a reputation for getting hit a lot and has the record for most hbp, Craig Biggio was hit 285 times in 12,504 plate appearances (2% of the time). If he stays healthy Robles will probably break that record by the time he is like 28. - Is anyone concerned though that his projected strong plate discipline and high obp is mainly due to an ability to getting hit by pitches? A lot of people think he has a safe floor because of his .395 career OBP...but you take away his hbp skill, his obp is only. 344. So maybe he's a bit overrated in regards to plate discipline.
  15. David Dahl 2017 Outlook

    http://www.denverpost.com/2017/03/03/david-dahl-back-injury-rockies/ It sounds like he could be out a couple days or a week or 2, so I wouldn't worry too much. “We first said David would be out a couple of days, but it’s going to be longer than that, for sure,” Black said. “I don’t have a timetable on it, but it could be a week or two. There are some things going on with his back. David is undergoing some tests, and scans, and treatment to see what is going on." Oh wait...I just realized this article was back in March.
