  1. 2018 "Deep" Sleepers

    haha no i don't know anybody, just the usual twitter chatter doesn't sound like he's suddenly turned into a Big Fastball Guy or anything, but bumping up from 90-91 to 92-94 can make a big difference if you're already a lefty with a changeup and good command. he's still only like 20 this year
  2. 2018 "Deep" Sleepers

    canning's the household name there but take a minute to take a look at suarez. lefty whose stuff has apparently ticked up this year, pretty fascinating numbers in his first two starts. i was already circling around him and just picked him up figuring this news bump from the promotion may start to raise his profile

    you keep an eye on it. but it's still just been like two weeks. his FB% went up from 19 to 22 in one game yesterday. give the season a minute to cook

    ok, both of you guys posted basically the same answer at the same time, so that seems like the correct answer, thanks. but... it's also a confusing and unsatisfying answer
  5. Nick Tropeano 2018 Outlook

    can anybody actually tell me how many people are in the angels rotation right now? i'm thinking about picking up tropeano, but i'm in a league where two-start weeks make a big difference, so if he's really in a six-man rotation it's no joy for me. but roster resource and most of the scheduled-starter listings i can find are only showing 5 guys right now i guess whatever the answer is today, it might change tomorrow anyway. criminy

    his HR last night was the hardest hit ball in fenway since they installed statcast, they said i feel like when i was listening on the radio they said the same thing about judge's HR the night before... must be a good exit velocity weather

    so faria, one of the rays' three official capital-s Starters, just gave up 8 runs in 1.2 innings against the same red sox lineup yonny's thrown 9 shutout innings against so far this year hard for me to imagine them not treating him basically as a starter from here on out, even if they don't admit that's what they're doing
  8. Yonny Chirinos 2018 Outlook

    yeah i'm on board here. i've had him in my long-term league since last year, but i just added him in my deep redraft. he's part of the rays bullpen scheme right now, but they actually only have three starters at the moment since eovaldi went down, they were planning to have four and then one bullpen day. so i think there's room for him to transition into being more or less a real SP. andriese has seniority but i think yonny is a better pitcher and he's gotta be impressing people with what he's done so far even for now, though, the difference between the stats you get from him and the stats you'd get from a starter taking regular rotation turns might not even be noticeable. probably only 3-5 innings per game, but pitching somewhat more often than a starter to make up for it. in a QS league that's a problem, of course...

    i read that he used a heavier bat last year and that's his explanation for the power growth. dunno if it's true but i always like to see something tangible change like that when a guy has a breakout. so what the heck right. let's do it i also like that he didn't just convert a few doubles to homers, his doubles also went up. that says to me that he was just hitting the ball farther overall

    pham's unusually honest, though. it's kind of a thing
  12. Tommy Pham 2018 Outlook

    my take on this - it sounds like his eyes haven't physically gotten any worse, he's just having lens issues. i think this is something he can get sorted out over time. he's done it multiple times before. but the possibility certainly exists that it could be a rough april. my approach to this would be to ride it out in leagues where you already have him. in leagues where you don't, it's fair to not draft him if you don't want to deal with this, but i'd also be kind of lurking waiting for him to have a rough april and for everyone to give up on him as a fluke, and then try to grab him cheap and hope he fixes things by a couple weeks after that

    it sounds like there's something in the medicals that doesn't constitute him being currently injured, but could be seen as a possible long-term issue. as i recall something like this happened when the sox signed JD drew, and they resolved it by adding a clause to the contract they'd already agreed on to void it if he had an injury to one specific shoulder during the course of the deal. (which ended up not happening) or something
  14. Chris Davis 2018 Outlook

    i like him at current prices. i picked him up as a salary dump in a contracts league and so i've been reading up on him his K rate has been trending up for the last few years, which is, uh, bad, but i noticed that his SwStr% hasn't actually been getting much worse, if at all. what happened last year seems to be that he led the league in called third strikes. i like that, because, if he's just fishing for the ball and missing, that seems bad, like maybe he just can't see or react as well any more. taking too many strikes seems more fixable in the papers he's saying that he thinks this is all mental, he was just being too passive and got too far into working counts instead of attacking the ball. so he's going to try to attack earlier in the count this year he's not that old yet and given his insanely volatile history it's not hard to imagine him having another 45-homer up season plus at the prices he's going for if it's not happening you can just drop him, so, if you're going to take the shot with him, this is the year for it i've done a few mocks now and the lower-level 1B i find myself taking are two young guys (bird and olson) and two veteran bounceback candidates (davis and hanley)

    miggy is a hall of fame talent who was only 34 last year, though, there was really no reason for him to suddenly be that bad. that almost certainly wasn't sudden age decline, it was just health. so yeah, guys in their 30s can get hurt and have bad years. happens a lot. but not always. cruz at 37, 38 is getting way closer to the dreaded 4-0 line, so yeah, one of these years he's gonna lose it. the question is just, will it be this year, or, not
