  1. Off-season Closer Thread 2017/18

    At the end of the day let’s just all agree he’s not for everyone and be done with it. This petty back n forth gets us no where. His problem all along was the reduced velocity was allowing hitters to lay off his secondary stuff and sit on the fast ball. If his velocity is back up then that helps play up his other pitches and keep hitters honest. I’ve taken worse fliers.

    Been trying to get this dude after reading some stat on here that put him up there with the elites in the game and finally landed him for AJ Cole. In my best Borat voice “Wowaweewa, Very Nice”. Loving that this dude is OF eligible.

    Dude looks like a bobble head now. Gonna name my team Schwarber Head. And thank goodness u guys called a truce on the weight lose/muscle loss argument cause I seriously wanted to stop following this thread. It felt like the Syndergaard thread all over again where 2 people would go back n forth about if he’s injury prone or not.

    So whatcha guys think, can Lincecum really be in the mix to be the Rangers’ closer.

    I wonder what the St. Louis Blue Jays will think of this signing.

    No idea who that is.
  8. Mark Trumbo 2018 Outlook

    Apparently ur not alone. Just concluded a 5 round draft in an 18 team dynasty league with 28 player rosters and 13 MiLB slots and he was a free agent heading in and didn’t even get picked which is just crazy to me cause he’s a 40 HR 100 RBI capable bat. Thought for sure he’d be gone by Round 2 and now he’s about to clear after draft waivers tonight, which is partly why I’m searching for info on projections for him.
  9. Off-season Closer Thread 2017/18

    Can anyone tell me if this is true and where this is being cited from?
  10. Mark Trumbo 2018 Outlook

    I know this isn’t gonna be a sexy thread but I searched and didn’t see anything for him and wanna know what’s going on with him for this season. Does anyone think he rebounds, maybe to a happy medium between 2016 and 2017? Where does he bat in the lineup? Any reason why he regressed the way he did? Was 2016 an aberration because he was playing for a contract?
  11. Favorite Player to own and why

    I was saying to myself there’s really nobody that I like hafta have on my team nowadays. Then a name popped into my head, Billy Hamilton. I love owning him but then I said to myself I’m not really obsessed with him or anything and then that’s when it hit me, the guy I’m obsessed with: Brendan Rodgers. I MUST own him in every keeper league I’m in and I do. I just think he’s gonna be such a dynamic ball player, I really do. I gave it thought a few weeks back, I wouldn’t trade him for Altuve if I had the chance. Doesn’t matter though cause if u owned Altuve u wouldn’t trade him for Rodgers I'm sure, but I gave it a ton of thought and my logic was Altuve is already into his prime and with a player of his size I don’t know how he’d age. I’d rather own a guy like Rodgers into and through his entire prime.
  12. Favorite Player to own and why

    Wow. Just looked it up. The trade occurred in 2011 and it was: Dee Gordon Logan Morrison Justin Smoak Chris Sale for Ubaldo Jimenez Man did I ever hoot and holler over that trade. It passed and I was not in the least bit happy about it. Goes to show u, ya just never know.
  13. Favorite Player to own and why

    In my keeper league, my first one I ever did too (started mid season 2003) it was Mark Prior. Loved that dude. A shame his career turned out the way it did but he had that whole inverted W thing going on and it did him in. I had Jeter in that league from like 2005 on. Always loved having him on my squad. It’s how I got the nickname Jeter in all my leagues. Nowadays I’m such a fan of Arenado. Guy is a vacuum at 3B and just a thing of beauty at the plate. I really woulda loved to have seen guys naming guys that typically go 5th Rd or later but is what it is. I named a 1st Rder just the same as u guys did. I also love Chris Sale. His motion is just pure Randy Johnson. I remember when he first came up and some guy in my keeper traded the house for him to my biggest rival. I moaned and groaned and threw a veto down. The guy giving Sale argued that Joe Mauer said Sale was the best lefty he’d ever faced. I’d like to go back and see if I can pull up that deal to see who really won it.
