  1. Grayson Long SP DET

    Kind of surprised he never got his own thread. Grayson just got moved from the Angels to the Tigers where there are plenty of rotation spots open in 2018. He's doesn have top of the rotation upside, but he is very solid and has posted this line in AA at age 23 121 2/3IP 100H 38BB 111SO 8.21K/9 2.81BB/9 2.52ERA 3.07FIP. He's a good safe bet to be in a rotation for a long time.
  2. Ian Happ 2017 Outlook

    If any of Schwarber,Baez,Russell,Happ are going anywhere my guess is that it's Happ. With that said, I think it's much more likely the Cubs use their financial resources to grab someone this offseason. They may end up eating part of Zobrists' contract to ship him off.
  3. Jake Arrieta 2017 Outlook

    After a bad 2nd half and not so good early 1/3 of this season, Jake is back and man is he going to get paid this offseason. Since July 1st 69 1/3IP 45H 60K 21BB 1.69ERA The vintage 2015 Arrieta peripherals are gone, but the resluts are still looking mighty strong.
  4. Would you make this deal for freeman?

    All day. Braun is great, when he's healthy, which seems to be less and less. Albies is a good prospect and likely to be a much more valuable real life player than fantasy player. He just doesn't have the pop and his SB/Contact skill aren't so elite they can overcome his lack of pop. Help me out:
  5. Conforto replacement?

    Choo has been surprising solid this year. Sure he has a sub .800OPS, but his counting numbers are pretty good and he might get 20/20 yet again. Help me out:
  6. Playoffs: Who to Start?

    I worry about Wood and his continuing loss of velocity, but I don't see anything I like a whole lot more. I'd probably stick with what you have. Help me out:
  7. Keep or Trade? (WHIR)

    Questions pertain to the dynasty league in my signature. Long story short, my pitching choked and I find myself 1st man out of the playoffs despite 4th most points. Now that my fate has been decided, do I move Pham as a sell high or keep him for the future? My other CF qualifies are Dexter Fowler,Andrew Benintendi and Mahtook. Albert Pujols, do I just take whatever I can get or hope he bounces back to 2016 power levels and is once again useful? He spent pretty much every week on my bench this year. Lastly, do I give Lucroy another season or dump and move on? I got absolutely killed in C vs C matchups this year. Thanks for any help.
  8. Brent Rooker - OF/1B MIN

    Considering the #1 question about him was would his power play with wood bats, I think he's unequivocally answered that question. Remember though, he's a month away from being 23 year old. Still, very happy to be a Rooker owner.
  9. Heliot Ramos OF San Francisco Giants

    Predraft stuff had the scouts split on him. Half thought he had huge upside with lots of tools and the other half though he might be a quick washout or at very least a guy who would take a long time to put any of those skills into use on a baseball field.
  10. Fangraphs' Summer Top-100 Prospects List

    I suspect as he has to use his change up more and refine his offspeed pitches, he'll start striking out more guys. Thus far he's primarily getting by just by spotting that dominating fastball.
  11. Jose Ramirez 2017 Outlook

    Not when your other 2B options are Devon Travis and a constantly banged up Jason Kipnis.
  12. Fangraphs' Summer Top-100 Prospects List

    He's going to be forever underrated as a prospect because people keep waiting for the wheels to fall off on his command. Getting him straightened out as fast as they did was amazing work by the White Sox, because his stuff is/was as good as anyone's in that draft class.
  13. Jose Ramirez 2017 Outlook

    Ugh, just ugh. Most important match up of my season, can't afford to lose my versatile stud bat.
  14. Fangraphs' Summer Top-100 Prospects List

    In name familiarity and the fact that Paredes has absolutely no shot of sticking at SS, probably. However, if Paredes keeps developing that power and can stay on the infield he wont be ranked behind him long.
  15. Fangraphs' Summer Top-100 Prospects List

    1)A few things that stood out to me. Austin Hays not even being on the list is just appalling at this point. 2)Corey Ray, in a repeat year at A+, has gotten worse yet somehow his stock hasn't taken a hit. 3)Unless you believe Rodgers has no chance to stick at SS, I don't know how you can have him so low on the list 4)Austin Meadows rank has not slid at all despite being fairly awful in a repeat of AAA 5)JP Crawford, I know he's hit better lately, don't care. He shouldn't even be on the list at all. 6)Sixto seems real low at 47. How many 19 year olds are there with 100mph fastballs that walk 1.2/9? 7)Franklin Perez seems a little low for a 19 year old in AA with a sub 3 FIP, 8)Keston Hiura doesn't even make the noteables? All he does is rake.
