  1. Rotoworld Baseball Mock Draft V1 picks

  2. Kevin Gausman 2018 Season Outlook

    I traded for him last year in a dynasty all because of you.
  3. 2017-2018 Off-season and Hot Stove Thread

    I remember reading that Logan Morrisson was a backup plan they could pursue but they were waiting to see what Santana was going to do. Although before last year Morrisson was known as a slow starter, could be a rough first couple months of the season if he is paired up with E5.
  4. Teoscar Hernandez 2018 Outlook

    Atkins said yesterday if it wasn't for the fans they would have started a hard reset last year. I don't think the team is for sale though, they would entertain offers if somebody came in with a 1.5 billion dollar off after they bought the team for something ridiculous under 200M They have to realize it would cost them 250M+ each year to broadcast the games if they sold the Jays. Not to mention the Jays could turn around and have the bigger company Bell buy the broadcasting rights and Rogers would be completely out of the picture.

    I will take 53 HR Bautista with 100+ walks. That seemed like so long ago.

    Make that Cain, Bruce, Cargo, Hamilton, Gomez and now Garcia. I think these names are just for Atkins to say he tried. I would rather see Alford and Hernandez out there will Pillar with Carreira out there as a 4th outfielder. Anybody they sign though will be to trade in September to get back prospects. I think this is how the soft rebuild is going to work. I think Hernandez will start in LF though and Alford will start in AAA, that is if they sign somebody for RF.

    I hope you are all right as far as the average considering he only hit .200 over the final 30 days, .171 over the final 15 days and the last week of the season only .131.this coming from an owner. He also had no HR's over the final 15 days. It all depends on how fast he can adjust, just like he had to when he hit AAA.

    Jays just don't like to run much. They will always be built around the HR it seems which in previous years before last year was fine because of the lineup they had. There was a pretty good chance that JD, Bats, EE were hitting an extra base hit so it didn't matter if they were on 1st or 2nd. Maybe they just want Hernandez to focus on hitting and fielding first before stealing bases. I look at Moncada and wonder if it is the same reason even before the shin splints. The Jays are not very good at manufacturing runs. I believe they were second last to the Orioles in bunting if I remember correctly. This is why I say they are built around the HR. Get on base and hope somebody hits you home.

    My bold prediction, Rotoworld mok draft II will finish before Rotoworld mock draft I. Speaking of, have any of you looked at the results from II and compared some of the players taken? I think my big steal might be Steven Souza Jr, he went in the 11th round in Mock draft II, got him in round 21 in ours. Also to note, Rhys Hoskins went 37th overall. By Mock draft III I think he may be a 2nd rounder.
  10. Fast/Slow starters and Weather

    I agree in theory, I cannot explain EE though. Every year he gets off to a slow start and still manages 35+ homers and 100 RBI.

    Think it all depends on whether the blister issues are fixed. Wasn't he dealing with blisters after May?

  14. Walker Buehler SP-LAD

    YAY! Manager Dave Roberts said Buehler will work as a starter in 2018, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Spin: Buehler finished last season as a reliever after earning a September callup, though the Dodgers have always viewed the talented righty as a starter in the long term. While he struggled during his brief stint with the big club, posting a 7.71 ERA, 2.04 WHIP and 12:8 K:BB in 9.1 innings, the 23-year-old compiled a more respectable 3.35 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 125:31 K:BB through 88.2 innings across three levels of the minors prior to his promotion. He misses bats at an impressive clip and has front-of-the-rotation stuff, headlined by a plus curveball and a fastball that can serve as another reliable offering. The Dodgers have starters to burn, however, so Buehler will likely be competing for a back-end rotation spot in spring training.
