  1. My dynasty league allows for 10 minor league keepers, and if a player was in the minors on August 31st last season, and called up in September he can still be kept as a minor league player. Here's who I'm planning to keep. Hitters: Wander Franco, Jo Adell, Nick Madrigal, Taylor Trammell, Monte HarrisonPitchers: Spencer Howard, Kyle Wright, Tarik Skubal, Brusdar Graterol, James KarinchakCuts: Keibert Ruiz, Colton Welker, Braxton Garrett I won the league last year after a massive rebuild. I'm planning on keeping Wright, Graterol, Karinchak to possibly help this season rather than waiting on Ruiz, Welker, & Garrett. However, I hate giving up on Ruiz and Welker to keep pitchers that could struggle. Curious what the RW prospect world thinks of my strategy?
  2. Which is why I'm holding without much concern.
  3. Fair enough. As a dynasty owner, I'm thrilled with today's news. I see your point for upcoming redraft leagues.
  4. What do you have a better chance of stealing carries from? Chubb/Hunt or Miller? Even if you don't see him as between the tackles guy, which I agree he isn't, he has a chance to touch the ball significantly more for three more seasons in HOU, rather than...maybe he'll touch the ball for 8 weeks and then never again for 2.5 years.
  5. He's not in a crowded CLE backfield any more, and got his wishes of a trade. Nobody loves Lamar Miller as a RB, but yet several of you think this is a bad landing spot? SMH...Duke's value just went way up no matter how you look at it.
  6. Grabbed him as a band-aid to losing Gallo. Best band-aid ever applied so far. Another HR today.
  7. Called up to AAA and goes 2-4 HR 4rbi in his first game. Very interesting considering Will Smith is also there. Is he getting called up? Are they going to be trading one of these two prospects?
  8. 2-4 w/HR again tonight. It’s hard to find opinions on his true talent. Power certainly seems legit.
  9. The Mets surely have done crazier things, but I'm guessing Kay's 9.64 ERA in 4 AAA appearances isn't going to earn him the call just yet.
  10. Is there a legit MLB bat here or is he a 4th OF type? I assume he will debut relatively soon (September or early next year), but I’d love hear more from this community on him. Surprised there’s not an existing thread, which makes me pause to put in a claim on that fact alone haha.
  11. Not that I disagree with you, but considering that a struggling, young prospect in his first MLB taste almost certainly gets sent back down and then service time issues are less concerning. If he comes up and mashes, the club can try to lock him into a long term deal at a discount (Acuna is maybe the best recent example). I think Vlad and 100’s of other recent examples paint a pessimistic picture for everyone, but the truth is we have no clue when he will get his opportunity. Just the fact that I have an 18 year old with Franco’s pedigree is exciting enough for me at the moment. I can wait until he’s 20 years old and enjoy 10-15 years of premier performance. If you can’t sit out the wait, you’ll have smart owners lined up to take him off your hands.
  12. 3-4 w/ 2sb last night. Now has 25 steals while striking out a grand total 7 times on the season. 7!
  13. Got to see him play yesterday, and got an autograph. Wish I could load the video of his triple for y’all.
  14. His pitch count has been managed well, and he’s not stressed at all. He seems effortless and the ball dances. I think the sell high talk is so rampant that it’s not really a sell high moment. Maybe factor how young and poised he is, control for his age...maybe he’s going to improve?! Hell, it’s likely he’s going to improve. At least in a dynasty he’s a strong hold for me.
