  1. Daniel Vogelbach 2019 Outlook

    His best spot is hitter. With cruz out of Seattle finally, they can let Vogelbach hit if they want. The problem is they’re currently loading up on past their prime 1B/OF/DH types, so there may not be room for Vogelbach, but plenty have suggested E5 won’t start the season in Seattle. I think Vogelbach can hit if given the chance, but that’s all he can do. He’s a woeful defender with 20-30 grade speed.
  2. Adalberto Mondesi 2019 Outlook

    He’s exciting for sure after that second half run, especially September. That said he feels pretty risky too. The Royals shouldn’t have anything to lose and should just let him play daily, but they’ve screwed things up numerous times before. I want at least one share somewhere, but it may be tough to go all in unless he improves the plate discipline remarkably in ST giving hints that he’s working on his batting eye.

    Only thing stopping it is a fourth OF
  4. In my experience, it's only a "problem" in H2H leagues where everyone has caught on to the devalued nature of SPs and streams several pitchers every week. While it can backfire, it's often pretty effective if you're selective in who you add/start. In that format, my preference would be a starts limit to prohibit guys from streaming 20 starts against you in a week you have 7. We already have a moves limit per week (which I personally hate), but the starts limit would at least level the playing field for everyone. Agreed with the earlier poster that says you've got to have that policed at the individual level. Everyone has to agree to the rule and comply, and if they don't, penalties have to be severe enough that they won't break the rules again.

    Cool it with the back and forth, guys.
  6. Marcell Ozuna 2019 Outlook

    Whether he admitted it explicitly or not, and whether the Forecaster buys it or not, it was pretty obvious his power was not the same last year. He'd square balls up to see them die a few steps from the warning track instead of clearing the wall. He couldn't drive the ball like he had the prior season. I used to not love the profile due to him hitting a TON of balls on the ground, but he's always hit the ball hard. When that comes together with lifting the ball, you get 2017. I don't buy contract year narratives, but if the price has dropped, that's a guy I'll get back in on after an injury clearly affected his performance last year.
  7. Jeff McNeil 2019 Outlook

    We'll agree to disagree. I love deGrom, Thor, and Wheeler, but it's not like the rest of the division is starved in pitching, especially Washington with Scherzer, Corbin, Stras at the top, or Atlanta with their depth of arms who are just coming into their own. Plus your argument is either be stuck with Bruce or trade him in that deal. Why couldn't they have traded Bruce elsewhere? I don't mind the Lowrie signing ... he's a solid player that didn't cost a ton. I mind the Lowrie signing IF it causes them to bench a promising player in what should be a year of continued building and development.
  8. Jeff McNeil 2019 Outlook

    Surprised some people seem to be defending the moves the Mets have made this offseason. If I were a Mets fan, I'd be pissed. You're not winning in a division with Atlanta, Washington, and a Philly team hell bent on adding a major bat like Harper or Machado or both ... not with dudes like Cano and Lowrie. No one's bothered to mention the fact that Cano just got busted last year for PEDs, and the Mets trade their best prospect assets to get him. Yeah they added Diaz, but there's relievers available on the market that don't cost your best prospects. BVW seems highly misguided. Who'd have ever thought hiring an agent to do a GM's job would end poorly? As for McNeil, there's a lot of promise in the bat. I hope the Mets just let him play in a corner OF with Nimmo in CF and Conforto in RF. I'm not confident they'll come to that conclusion, but that's what I'm hoping for.
  9. Tyler White 2019 Outlook

    Houston's been a rumored destination for Jose Martinez too as St. Louis should move him to an AL team where he can just DH.
  10. Jeff McNeil 2019 Outlook

    I think the path is in the OF with a handful of starts in the IF as a super utility guy giving folks days off. My guess, at least until Alonso is ready, is that Cano or Frazier plays first, Cano or Lowrie plays 2B, Rosario at SS, Lowrie or Frazier at 3B. They have JD Davis that they acquired from Houston at 3B or OF. McNeil can play 2B, 3B, or OF. I know folks around here love Keon Broxton, but he's never really stuck around in the bigs. Perhaps that's opportunity, or perhaps he's not that good. Conforto plays one corner (or fakes it in CF), Nimmo plays the other or CF, and Broxton, McNeil, Davis, etc. duke it out for the other spot.
  11. Francisco Mejia 2019 Outlook

    Isn’t Hedges an elite defender? Plus he took a step forward with the bat. I’ve seen concerns for a while that Mejia ultimately gets moved from behind the plate. I’ve heard 3B and 2B as well as OF. He’s not taking 3B from Myers, but Kinsler isn’t blocking anyone at 2B with Urias shifting to SS. I’d bet 2B is where Mejia ultimately lands barring an incredible step forward in his defense or Hedges falling off a cliff.
  12. Willians Astudillo 2019 Outlook

    Swag ... in spades. Giddy up. The best part is that the video continues with him absolutely pimping the HR the entire way around the bases.
  13. Tyler O'Neill 2018 Outlook

    This is big. Wasn’t sure if O’Neill could handle CF.
  14. Jonathan Villar 2018 Outlook

    This may be the big winner from Milwaukee’s PT squeeze. I thought it’d be Santana, but looks like Villar.

    Lame - no Santana trade.
