  1. Frank Robinson Tribute Thread

    Nothing needs to be said about the fantasy value of Robinson's Triple Crown season in 1966. But possibly even sweeter was his 1962 campaign. 39 HR, 136 RBI, 134 R, 18 SB, .342/.421/.624 triple slash, 76/62 BB/K ratio!, 8.7 WAR, 171 wRC+ Who can provide this type of all-around production in 2019? Trout comes closest.
  2. Sure thing. I'll get right on sending you the info that can be found above in the body of the original post.

  6. 2018-19 Off-Season and Hot Stove Thread

    Both the Yanks and Sawx are loaded beyond belief. But I think the thing that separates the Yanks from Boston is the pen. The Yankees could have 2 or 3 of their back-end relievers go down and still have a much better pen than the Sox currently do. Of course all that is relative to what Dombrowski does between now and Opening Day. You would have to think Kimbrel is feeling good right now about his chances of getting a big deal to stay with Boston.

    If you're the 'Stros, what is wrong with these numbers from your catcher? 201 Games 623 AB's 35 HR 103 RBI .350 OBP .800 OPS Those are the stats of Robinson Chirinos for 2017-18 combined. Good goddamn numbers, if you ask me. He's a productive offensive catcher and he's good behind the dish, too. They already have him signed at a reasonable $5.75 million. To me, it would be senseless to deal Tucker even straight up for Realmuto. Clear Reddick out of the way, make Kemp a 4th keeper and install Ted in right field. I mean you *might* stand a chance of winning some games with this lineup. CF Springer 3B Bregman 2B Altuve LF Brantley SS Correa DH NELSON CRUZ? 1B Gurriel RF Tucker C Chirinos

    The Astros absolutely hate Kyle Tucker.
  9. 2018-19 Off-Season and Hot Stove Thread

    If they make the playoffs, even by Wild Card, they have - like any other team that reaches the postseason - a great chance to "sniff the WS." Especially so because they have three ace-like starters and a total shutdown closer in Diaz. All any team needs to do is get hot in October to win the World Series.
  10. Ender Inciarte 2019 Outlook

    I think the addition of Donaldson assures Inciarte is doomed to the 6th or 7th spot in the lineup, thus throwing a real monkey wrench in his fantasy value. If he indeed ends up in the bottom-third of the lineup, his runs scored total is going to decline drastically, and I think his 28 steals last year is his ceiling. I'm passing on Inciarte this season. Below is how I see the Braves lineup in 2019. 1. Acuna 2. Albies 3. Freeman 4. Donaldson 5. Corner Outfielder 6. Inciarte 7. Swanson 8. Catcher 9. Pitcher

    No shortage of alternative facts here. While I agree the Mariners have a number of bad contracts, your game of guessing made it seem considerably worse than it is. Worst case scenarios: Cano - 5 years, 120-million Leake - 2 years, 36-million Segura - 4 years, 58-million Gordon - 2 years, 27.5-million
  12. Jose Martinez 2018 Outlook

    This dude's role is defined: He's the designated pinch hitter and will on most nights get one plate appearance. How those plate appearances go will have no impact on his role. If he fails, doing so won't help him work his way back into the lineup. If he succeeds, as he did last night with a go-ahead 2-RBI single in the 9th, Schildt will feel even more compelled to use him as a bat off the bench. Face it - if you haven't already - it's over for this guy for this year. It was fun owning him in spurts, but mostly it was a headache. He'll be one of the best DH's in baseball in 2019.
  13. Carlos Correa 2018 Outlook

    Next year, when you're drafting this young, 24-year-old, remember to account for the 50+ games you'll be without him due to injury.
  14. Josh Hader 2018 Outlook

    Or is it delusional to think the Brewers would abandon their best weapon as they fight to make their first playoff appearance in 7 seasons?
