  1. [Hey, let's keep the discussion in here to actionable updates on Ramirez's status, not venting and ranting, which needs to go here.]
  2. Post completed deals in your league here for the benefit of others, or just to see how you did. Posts about completed trades in the Baseball Talk forum may be moved here. I'll start with a few of my offseason dynasty moves: 12 Team 5x5 OBP Gave Luke Voit and Joey Wendle Got CJ Cron and Domingo Santana Was nervous about Voit sharing time with Bird, and very high on Santana to break out this season. I'm not going to judge it on one game, but early returns on this one are good. 10 Team 5x5 Standard Gave Jesus Aguilar Got Nick Pivetta Aguilar is a popular bust choice, but this was more about liking Pivetta and having too many top 1B on my roster than it was about not liking Aguilar. Gave Shane Bieber Got Andrew McCutchen A rebuilding team needed a young upside arm, and I'm a Phillies fan who needed some OF depth.
  3. Let's continue the discussion upstairs, y'all.
  4. Yes. If you want to discuss other stuff in off topic, go ahead and create a thread there.
  5. Hi, and welcome to the forums, @Papaito . This is the Football League Finder Forum. If you'd like to invite folks to your baseball league, please go here: Also, please don't spam that forum with multiple consecutive posts as you've done here. Thanks.
  6. [Several removed. Let's keep this thread focused on Trout's contract and fantasy outlook, not dunking on other members for their cold takes.]
  7. I assume that's NFBC ADP, since FantasyPros has him at 124. I feel like the SB upside makes either of those prices pretty attractive. You're obviously paying for production he's never shown before, but even using Steamer projections which are notoriously conservative, he comes in as around the 80th overall bat, which is right in line with FantasyPros' ADP, and THE BAT projections have him as a top 50 hitter. Obviously there's bust potential, but when I'm in the 9th / 10th round and I haven't taken a lot of risks early on, this is the kind of guy I go for.
  8. Playing in public leagues means dealing with the public, and the public, as a general rule, sucks. I don't think any amount of platform changes is going to stop that. People are always going to vote in their own best interest. Being forced to write a justification isn't going to change that. Better to find some leagues without a voting system, or just play in no-trade leagues if you can't.
  9. A ticking time bomb that's been ticking for like five years. At some point if a guy can beat the ERA estimators and other "skill" metrics for like 500+ innings, perhaps there are some skills that we just don't have the capacity to measure yet.
  10. [We're pretty far afield from Upton's fantasy outlook with this tangent about how "streakiness" affects a player's value in particular formats. If y'all want to continue that conversation, it needs to occur elsewhere, either in a new topic for that purpose, or perhaps here.]
  11. I like everything in there except for the three batter minimum. Contracting September rosters to 28 is a particularly notable change for fantasy. Always stinks when your players are sitting because the team's coasting into the playoffs and letting a bunch of call-ups play.
  12. [Sorry, @ledzep89, this sort of very team and format specific advice needs to go in the BC forum as well.]
  13. He had wrist surgery prior to 2017, I think? That could explain his lower power output in 2017 and, perhaps some of the improvement in 2018. His 48.6% hard hit rate was 2nd to Matt Carpenter. If he's finally healthy, maybe he can maintain at least some of that. The team context stinks, and it's possible the AVG could nosedive if he's exposed to more LHP without as many other useful bats around him, so I actually don't like him at his current FantasyPros consensus ADP of 132. But if he were there a round or two later, I think I'd give him a shot.
