  1. I am trying to convince my re-draft league to do this, as for me it is deflating to draft this year and just throw it all away if the season is likely cancelled completely. Drafting is the most exciting thing for me as I spend weeks before prepping and mock drafting and for it not to matter at all, just makes me want to take a year long hiatus from fantasy baseball the following year.
  2. It's just a standard re-draft. It makes me not want to do another draft next year if this year is just straight up cancelled.
  3. Generally speaking Viruses don't do as well in warm weather and in the sun, but we don't know for sure quite yet. The virus is in Australia and that is a warmer climate. I am seriously bummed out we don't have baseball on the horizon anytime soon... #lockdownforbaseball
  4. Has anyone in fantasy leagues that have already drafted discussed what to do IF this season is cancelled? I have thought about proposing to my league just importing the rosters we drafted for next season and forgo another draft so that we are not cheated out of the teams we drafted this year.
  5. The groceries stores are swamped where I am at. I bought enough food for a month knowing we all likely will be quarantined for 2-4 weeks, if not more.
  6. It's not like they wouldn't get all their basic needs met, and it's a temporary fix, eventually things will go back to normal. Mlb is already floating the idea of them playing regular season games at their spring training complexes, this isn't just some idea I pulled out of my butt or seems unreasonable.
  7. A solution to this would be just to play the games in their spring training stadiums without any spectators. It keeps traveling to a minimum.
  8. Sometimes people like to easily write off some old players, but I can remember a few that had good seasons after looking toast. Carlos Delgado is one that comes to mind when he hit 38 homers at age 36/37 I believe and Victor Martinez had a power surge with 32 homers at age 35 and 27 homers at age 37. I'm not saying Miggy is gonna have a resurgent season, but maybe someone to be keeping an eye on in case he does start off hot.
  9. Don't call it a come back... Something, something, best shape of my life... something, something.... But seriously, he came to camp noticeably slimmer, almost looks to be the same size as when he first came up as a rookie. Blasted two far long homers in spring training. Any value to be had here? He can still hit, just the power disappeared for him last year. Maybe a healthier Cabrera, we are talking .290 with 20-24 homers this year, or just a pipe dream?
  10. I have to agree. I have a share of Ramirez in one of my leagues, but would take Arenado over him. Nolan has just been a model of consistency for 7 years and is kind of overlooked lately.
  11. Ketel Marte. I love the skill set. Most projection systems are rather conservative with their projections, and he is projected to hit .290, but could hit for a higher avg. with 20-25 homers and maybe chip in 10 something steals.
  12. Yes, When I saw his ranking in the mock drafts I was doing, my eyes lit up.
  13. Yes sir! And people are overlooking the fact he may only miss April now. 150 IP may still be in reach (knock on wood).
  14. I hope they just play the games in empty stadiums. Not to be a fearmonger, but parts of the USA will likely be on lockdown for weeks at a time in the coming months. There are so many games to be played, and since a lot of us are gonna be stuck in our houses for long periods of time, it would be nice to watch some games on TV
  15. I am not so good at starting these threads, but really wanted to see what people feel about him this year. He had a Career year last year, and some people are saying it was because of the juiced ball. He did however make some changes to his swing to get more loft and started to pull the ball more. I think people are sleeping on him for this year after Muncy, Bell and olson are off the board. Thoughts?
  16. He's new nickname should be The Big Hurt
  17. Hit for a higher average last year by beating the shift and going the opposite way and had a career high in obp. A lot of the fantasy rankings have in at a discount going nearly to the 14th round in 10 team redrafts, which would make him a big bargain in obp leagues. Thoughts on him?
  18. Who would you rather have? Seems like Santana might put up similar numbers at the lower cost. Thoughts?
  19. I have the first pick too in a redraft and I didn't even hesitate to take Trout. Last year's injury was just bad luck, had surgery and it is all fixed now. I think some guys like Acuna because of the stolen base potential, but a fully healthy season from Trout with the rubber ball that Mlb is using, we are looking at a 50 homer season and better avg. and obp than Acuna's
  20. I have the first pick in the draft (taking trout), when I make 2nd pick I'll be taking the last pick in the second round and first pick of the 3rd round, so I get to make two consecutive picks. These are the likely players to drop to me based on mock drafts and rankings in yahoo! that I prefer: Rendon JRam JD Martinez Yordan Alvarez Jose Altuve Bryce Harper How would you rank these players?
  21. Say you already had your first pick and then the second round rolls around and you have to choose between Jose Ramirez and JD Martinez, who do you take?
  22. That's Kind of what I am hoping for my 10 team league where I am picking trout first
