    Juan Soto outperforms Ronald Acuna Jr

    Max Scherzer is out after April and gets TJ surgery

    Clayton Kershaw ends the season with a 2.50 and 190 k's

    Aaron Judge goes 50/15


    I don't think the forum servers would be able to handle all the whiny posts from scherzer owner's about how their season and life are now over if that happened.

  2. This is a little word to the wise, and he may well be fine... but going into your drafts, but cautious in taking Harper.  Stress fractures are not first detected in initial x-rays. He could have a stress fracture and we won't know about it unless they take an MRI. And before anyone tries to argue with me, 1. I won't respond, and 2. this is just my two cents I'm throwing out there.

    I have my draft coming up this weekend, very worried he'll only get 500 PAs and not 600+ (if healthy). Is it still confirmed that he does not have a starting full-time, no doubt role with the Dodgers?


    Nothing is confirmed at all. But honestly, I was thinking about Muncy for the past month and Dave Roberts loves to tinker with his lineup way too much. He might be money in OBP leagues this year. I'd rather take Moustaskas a round or two later because he profiles as a similar hitter(albeit less BB's) with a more defined role.

  4. I forgot how it works from last year, but are Yahoo! draft rankings different depending on the league or are they universal???

    For example, Do the mock drafts just have rankings determined by 5x5 leagues, but if you have a custom league with a different scoring system, do the rankings in the live draft look different from the mock drafts?

    All I'm saying is 'how' confident are you in doing so? Is it just because of the record contract he signed? Does that make one want to draft him higher than they normally would?

    I think it has to do more with the home ball park, the team he is on... in a redraft im looking to take him 6th overall if jose ramirez or jd martinez dont fall to me. If harper had gone to sf or maybe even the padres, I wouldn’t even have thought about drafting him.

    Very bad idea to 'map' out all your targets like this. 

    Snake drafts suck, but one thing to keep in mind is that players will 'drop' to you. Draft the best available player, don't target them all out. Your targets are all great though.

    Seriously? you don't think I have at least 3-4 alternatives per round? I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get these guys based on yahoo! rankings.

    I've found every time I go into a draft saying "I'll get this guy, then grab this guy, then my team will look like this!" I end up missing on many of those targets, and scrambling. As mentioned you need a backup plan for sure. Even if it's just as simple as having 3-4 targets per draft pick and adjusting during the draft if needed.


    Yes, I know, but I usually almost get 90 percent of the guys I want.

    Not at all crazy. But to be honest,I think your projections are way off. Especially Daniel Murphy.  Other than Bergman at 6,I fail to see most if any of your targets being available.  Cole won’t be available in 3, neither will Thor. Better have a backup plan.  

    Uh? Its a ten team league. I've done numerous mock drafts and kluber and cole are there in the third round.

  9. I have the sixth pick in the draft and I usually never draft pitchers in the first 4 rounds... but this year I'm planning to draft Gerrit Cole and Thor in the 3rd and 4th round.

    first two picks I'm thinking about getting bregman, then Judge. 3rd and 4th round to get Cole and Thor.

    The rest of the draft I'm reasonable gonna get the following players:

    Eugino Suarez

    Nelson Cruz

    Daniel Murphy/Scooter Gennett

    Max Muncy

    German Marquez

    David Dahl....


    Team would still look good after taking pitchers early?
