  1. I understand the joke, but this isn’t what I am saying. Miggy IS irrelevant in fantasy terms now. He IS expected to be nothing special, so to see him dropping weight in the spring and cranking 2 bombs off the top rated pitcher in the universe makes you think hmm maybe I’ll see what he does the rest of the spring. It’s possible he outperforms his ADP. However, Cole IS the top ranked pitcher in baseball, he IS the top projected points leader in fantasy. He SHOULD be held to a higher standard in my opinion. Sure you can say spring is spring, but you can also just as easily say damn I should have seen this coming since spring training 3 months into the year if it goes badly. Spring training stats are a mystery, but at the same time it is the most up to date performance we get to evaluate. Therefore, it makes spring somewhat intriguing. I am by no means a nutcase and all of a sudden assuming the worst because of one spring training game, but it’s tough to COMPLETELY disregard current baseball.
  2. You very well might be right and he might be an 18 game winner with 280k’s and a 3.00 ERA, but I just figured I’d bring it up since he’s a first round pick who was getting shelled.
  3. Pitchers are volatile as hell to begin with and you just don’t love to see it. Granted it is spring training and all, but new team, NYY pressure, contract pressure, losing Severino must carry the load pressure are all factors that could be in his mind. He was also a part of the “cheater” Astros and doesn’t have his boy JV to push him to be the best anymore either. You just never know and spring training or not you don’t like to see a guy get shelled by a scrub team and an aging miggy. If he gets blasted next outing will it be time for concern then? Fantasy drafts are upon us and it’s never too early to reconsider players.
  4. Does today shake anyone’s confidence on him at all for 2020?
  5. Yes it is a snake draft I wouldn't draft again until 20.
  6. Andujar and Gurriel imo. I think they are incredible for $1. little help?
  7. I am in a points league where last season Verlander and Cole had over 800 points and the next closest pitcher had 657. The top hitter had 603 points. I have the # 1 pick. I normally hate taking pitchers in the first round, but it is almost dumb of me if I decide not to take Cole #1 overall? Standard Espn 10 team Points. WHIR
  8. I’m not sure if this is the correct thread since this is ESPN specific. On the ESPN app Ohtani is competent grayed out and cannot be moved or traded. The only option is to drop him and I am just wondering what is going on with that exactly?
  9. Stay active on the wire as always. Your team is solid overall if I was trying to upgrade it would be 4/5 OF’s Utility and the back end of your rotation. I think Realmuto should put up elite numbers this season for a catcher. I am not the biggest Trea Turner guy but I love me some Bregman! For categories your team seems it will fair well, but could always be improved through the waiver wire. Don’t be afraid to punt categories if you feel it will dramatically increase your advantages in other categories. The winning teams usually are winning the same categories pretty consistently I’ve seen. Thank you for your hell with mine!
  10. Very solid team. I like your offense quite a bit maybe besides your utility slot. Your pitching is good not great but coupled with your offense it’s a solid team overall especially for a 12 teamer. Return the favor?
  11. Very solid for a 14 teamed! Good balance of offense and pitching. Mallex Smith and Tim Anderson could be upgraded but for a 14 teamer your team is very solid. I love your top 2 pitchers of course and your whole team seems well rounded. Little help ?
  12. Pretty solid on both sides for a 12 teamer. I hope Eloy and Voit pan out for you.
  13. McNeil for me as well. Little help?
  14. i would take the Cole/Hoskins side any day of the week and twice on Sundays. Return the favor?
