  1. I am trying to acquire keeper pitching in my NL-Only Keeper 5x5 league. Auction draft, Keep 15, $260 draft cap. Offer on the table: My: Jung Ho Kang - $1 (contract expires after 2017, unless extended) Jedd Gyorko - $3 (contract expires after 2018) for His: Justin Turner - $1 (contract expires after 2017, unless extended) Robbie Ray - $1 (contract expires after 2018) It would seem like a no brainer for me, since I believe Turner is the best player in this deal and Ray addresses some of my pitching issues (team listed below). But I have been out of the game (on here at least, for a while) and just want to know other people's opinions. Thanks for any input you provide and I will help in return, just leave a link. Keepers: C - C - 1B - 2B - Ryan Schimpf - $2 3B - Jung Ho Kang - $1 SS - Jedd Gyorko - $3 CI - Anthony Rendon - $14 MI - Dansby Swanson - $4 OF - Yaisel Puig - $11 OF - Kyle Schwarber - $4 OF - Trea Turner - $4 OF - Christian Yelich - $14 OF - UT - P - Jake Arrieta - $10 P - Brandon Maurer - $8 P - AJ Ramos - $4 P P P P P P Possible other keepers: Almora ($1), Luke Weaver ($6), Kyle Barraclough ($2) Daniel Hudson ($2)
  2. Started in Center Field last night, the versatility can only help speed up his arrival.
  3. Anything is possible. If Peterson had continued to struggle and kept losing playing time to Gosselin and Callaspo, then I would say definitely. But Peterson has been doing a decent job over the last ten games. It makes sense for them to give him an extended look and make sure that he's not an answer anywhere. I would say that Peraza comes up some time in June.
  4. Walk rate is good... Strike out & Contact rates are still awful. A .600 BABIP is absurd. We shall see what happens in AA.
  5. He currently is sporting an BABIP of .351. His career rate is .278 and there is nothing in his batting profile to suggest that there is a skill change here to sport it. I think last year was a down year for him and I think he can get back to around 15 HRs and a batting average of around .250. Ride him while he's hot...but extremely unlikely he keeps it up
  6. yanks are willing to give up gary sanchez their big catching prospect, i wouldnt be surprised if it happened... If I'm the Braves, I would want more than Gary Sanchez. I know he has been young for his level coming up, but the numbers are somewhat underwhelming and there are real concerns about his future as a catcher. Considering that the Braves couldn't move him to First, it seems unlikely.
  7. I haven't actually seen him play...so this may be way off. But from reading reports about him, I think of Jay Buhner for some reason. Am I just completely off on that?
  8. I just hope he doesn't end up just another name that the Orioles destroyed because of their development practices. I actually hope he has a great year and the Orioles trade him. I'd rather see him succeed somewhere else than be another causality.
  9. I doubt Rosario steals many at bats from him considering Rosario's defense is horrible.
  10. I'm sure you are looking for the Javier Baez thread. Buxton and Wood have nothing in common outside of being top prospects at one time or another.
  11. Rube Baker Alert! Maybe he needs to start looking at Playboy (for the articles). In all seriousness though, I hope it's just a minor blip for him.
  12. I offered a guy a 4th round pick in this year's draft for Justin Hunter (salary cap dynasty league), knowing that the guy was going to cut Hunter based on the rest of his team. He countered and asked for my first round pick. While even a 4th round pick might have been too high for a guy I ended up getting for free in free agency...I don't understand why he didn't want something for nothing.
  13. Why would that force Gausman to the pen? It's not like the Orioles are busting at the seems with long term pitchers. Outside of Tillman and Jimenez...there's no one else that's really locked into the rotation a year or two from now.
  14. According to Brooks Baseball...Anderson threw 33 sliders last night. As far as his TJS, he had that surgery in June of 2011...so he is pretty far removed from that to where him throwing over a 100 pitches shouldn't matter. I am only surprised they let him throw that many pitches because of the time he missed during spring training due to that collision. http://www.brooksbaseball.net/pfxVB/pfx.php?month=4&day=1&year=2013&game=gid_2013_04_01_seamlb_oakmlb_1%2F&pitchSel=474463&prevGame=gid_2013_04_01_seamlb_oakmlb_1%2F&prevDate=41
  15. Ah hell...
