  1. Gary Sanchez C, New York Yankees Gary Sanchez slugged two solo home runs in a 4-3 extra-inning victory over the Athletics on Saturday. He victimized Homer Bailey in the second and fifth innings. The Yankee catcher now has 32 home runs in just 96 games played this year. He hasn't done a heck of a lot other than hit solo home runs though. He has a .235 batting average with 71 home runs and 55 runs scored in 407 plate appearances. He has not attempted any stolen bases. That performance is good enough to rank him as the number four overall catcher in 5x5 leagues this year according to Yahoo. Aug 31, 2019, 5:49 PM ET You'd think he'd be the #1 catcher after hitting that many homers.
  2. So, Badler thinks he'll be a top 10 prospect within the next couple years. I can buy that. Top 20 next spring and then top 10 next July.
  3. They only have 7 more games. That would give him all of 17 games in high A, which isn't much. So, my bet right now is that they'll start him in high A next year and then see where things stand after a month or two.
  4. I agree. Altuve is still good but the Altuve of yesteryear is gone and I doubt he'll be back.
  5. I'm not getting my hopes but I hope things go well for him. After all these years it seems like the odds are against him, but, who knows. Crazier things have happened.
  6. Another bomb today. I'm starting to wonder if Olson will make it to 40 homers despite missing a month of the season.
  7. It's one game. I'm more interested in his next game.
  8. I don't know that I'd count on a .300 avg the ros and next year but, what's just as important, imo, is that when Scooter comes back Iglesias won't be the one on the bench, it'll be Peraza. The Reds haven't said that but, c'mon, it's already a given that Iglesias is a better defender. Iglesias will get his chance to show that he belongs in the Reds future. Dietrich is showing he can be the top backup to Scooter, Votto, etc.
  9. Right now, he doesn't have eligibility at 2nd in my leagues. I'd love it if he could get it and at least semi-regular playing time.
  10. Nah, that's way too ambitious.
  11. After all these years it's still hard for me to buy into a Colorado pitcher becoming an ace. They're already at a disadvantage because of the ballpark/elevation. It's gotta mess with their heads.
  12. That would mean his stats would only improve in his average (and steals). But, hitting for average has never been his strength. So, while .300 is possible it's not where I'd expect an improvement. It's his power. That's always been his strength. He's about to turn 26 and is coming off a great year so a slightly lower average in '19 wouldn't be a surprise. Over his prime years, though, I wouldn't be surprised if he had a couple years where he hit something like .285 40 110 125 20.
  13. Donaldson would be a good buy low target as long as you also have a couple more mid-late 3rd base options in mind. Do the homework and, if you're lucky, one can pan out to be good trade bait in May and another can be a keeper (for the rest of the season, at least).
