  1. 2019 "Deep" Sleepers

    Angel Rojas SS Yankees From Fangraphs Yankees list: “Rojas was one of the players the Braves signed in the months before their international scandal; he became a free agent before playing a game for the club. After keeping his voided $300,000 deal with the Braves, Rojas was scooped up by the Yankees months later for $350,000. When he signed with Atlanta, Rojas was under-the-radar and weighed about 130 pounds with some quick-twitch ability, plus speed, and the hands for shortstop, a prospect who the Braves thought would grow with physical maturity. Move about 18 months into the future, and Rojas is a plus-plus runner with a plus-plus arm who is up to about 160 pounds and has achieved in-game exit velos as high as 108 mph. It’s still a flatter-planed, contact-oriented swing, and Rojas often plays out of control as he’s still learning how to harness his newly-improved tools, but the DSL performance was solid and this is too much like a Jose Reyes starter kit to ignore.”
  2. Off-season Closer Thread 2017/18

    Brad Hand signed a 3 year extension and will be an absolute stud closer this year.
  3. Lonzo Ball 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    I’ve seen both, I just always interpret anchor to mean hurt you haha From rotoworld draft guide preview on Oct 9th: If you're punting free throws, to use an obvious example, Andre Drummond's absurd FT% anchor vanishes and he becomes an elite option in 9-cat.
  4. Lonzo Ball 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Anchor means he kills you in those categories haha. AKA sinks you
  5. Shohei Ohtani - Angels

    Yeah I'd be really surprised if it wasn't Mariners at this point due to the DH.
  6. Jonathon Isaac 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Good time to place him on your IR if you have room.
  7. Ben Simmons 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Every possession from about 5 minutes left in the game to 2 minutes left they fouled Ben off the ball to put him on the line. The strategy almost worked, Wizards were clawing their way back. It was pretty comical, every time Philly inbounded the ball a guy was holding Simmons and fouling him. The 4th quarter lasted forever.
  8. Al-Farouq Aminu 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Nothing in that tweet implies he will be back. What am I missing here
  9. Joel Embiid 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    I know its not the same, but his play and shooting form were vastly different which is why I think his problem was 100% the injury.
  10. Joel Embiid 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Go watch some Fultz highlights in summer league, shot looks great, bangin 3's and all. He's definitely hurt, can't lift his arm above his shoulder. I don't think it has anything to do with playing scared. I have no idea why they let him keep playing. Back to Embiid, good god last night was a treat to watch.
  11. Marquese Chriss 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    It's the only way they can say they were wrong without saying it, but some way, somehow, if he pans out then they are still right.
  12. Marquese Chriss 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    He's an afterthought. 15 minutes and didnt sniff the 4th quarter. Drop city.
  13. Marquese Chriss 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Is it just me or does he show zero effort out there. Just walks around and occasionally plays defense. I watched his whole 7 minutes in the 3rd and he let a few guys blow right by him for layups. I wonder if the coaches see the same thing.
  14. Marquese Chriss 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Yeah he's not sniffing those kinds of minutes yet this year. Shame.
