  1. Lowered his k rate and upped his walk rate after being promoted to AA last year. Looks like he’s got some pop and pretty decent speed too if you pro-rate out his stats. His prospect shine has seemed to have faded recently. Are people sleeping on him as being a future top 10 3b, or better. or are we just seeing a solid contact guy who’s much more valuable in obp leagues? Personally, I’m still hoping for big things for him. Hoping he can get a taste of the big leagues this year.
  2. Idk, I think Marte is a pretty good comp if everything shakes out well for Robert. Seems to have more speed than pop, k-rate isn’t crazy high, but would love to see the walk rate come up a little bit. At first glance his BABIP seems to be high at .385, but looking at his minor league profile, he’s always carried an above average rate. I love Robert long term, especially considering the dearth of speed in today’s game, but I don’t see the rush in trying to get him to the show this year. The low walk-rate guys tend to struggle in their first taste of big league action. I’d love to see him get called up to AAA soon and see how he performs, then have him up for good after Super 2 next year. It’s really awesome to see him rebound this year after an injury-marred season last year.
  3. My moneys on Swarzak and Festa in the Seattle pen, in that order. I think Swarzak will get the chance to run with it, but Festa looked good today and put up some pretty dang good numbers in the minors.
  4. I was just confused by the poster above me, wasn’t sure if I missed something. Thanks
  5. Did the Rockies officially announce McMahon as opening 2b? I may have missed it, but definitively declaring McMahon starting 2b is putting the cart before the horse a little bit, no? FTR, I don’t care either way how this shakes out. Just trying to put all the pieces together.
  6. Sleeper and the Bust used to be the best bar none, imo. Paul and Eno were really great together. I just can’t do it anymore with Justin though. Maybe it’s just me, but he comes across as condescending, argumentative just for the hell of it, and will freely gloat on his correct calls and completely bury his many incorrect takes. I know replacing Eno can’t be easy, but man. Paul and Nick Pollack on the weekly fireside chat still brings the heat though. Love how they dig into pitching. For prospect hounds, the Razzball Prospect Podcast is a good source. TINO was good, but they haven’t had an episode out in a while; not sure what happened with them. Scott White is still awful
  7. As someone who drafted JG this year...y’all are delusional if you think this dudes gonna return value this year. If you love someone...sometimes you have to let them go. What a wasted draft pick.
  8. I’ll attempt to bring some semblance of common sense into this thread. Field conditions are going to be wet and soggy, Gordon just got over his hamstring injury, and it’s Week 1. Gordon being on a snap count is probably not the worst idea. If you have something safer, play that player this week. For example, I’m starting Carson over him, where I know (hope) Carson will at least get snaps. Again, it’s Week 1. Last thing we want is for Gordon to go out there and get reinjured after a shortened training camp and a hamstring injury.
  9. Just to refresh everyone’s memory... In 2016, DJ had 293 attempts for 1293 yards and 16 TDs.. He also had 80 receptions for 879 yards and 4 TDs. Those are absolutely stupid numbers. DJ is the best receiving back in football. Don’t overthink this. Assuming health (which is the case with anyone), DJ is in play to be the overall RB1. If he’s there at pick 3 I’m gladly taking him.
  10. I drafted him in a deeper dynasty league after reading about him from Eno Sarris for an article he did for The Athletic. At the time I thought he’d be a starter...but he’s been pitching well when given the chance this year. Former top prospect, good home park, and with Lyles being scratched with forearm tightness, could be something here ros.
