  1. Hello all! I have one spot open in my long running salary cap Yahoo dynasty league. The league is a free 12 team dynasty league hosted on Yahoo that's been running since the 2013 season. The roster is good and includes Acuna, Bregman, and Flaherty. We use a contract system with UFA, RFA, prospect draft, and contract extensions with a $105 salary cap. This team is a yearly playoff team and championship contender, off to a slow start this season due to the owner bailing out of the blue. Activity on a Proboards website is required, as that is where all transactions and league conversation take place. Please contact me via email at adifazio27@gmail.com for full roster and league rules. Thank you!
  2. You're going to see this from a lot of guys. Not your normal time to get ready for the season and not a normal spring. Plenty of stars and mashers off to just horrid starts.
  3. Yeah, that's trouble. Well, hope anyone with him in redraft can buckle down and survive.
  4. Obviously anything we say right now is pure speculation, but ASSUMING* that it is virus related, it could actually be viewed as a good thing. If he had it and has already quarantined and beat it, that means we likely won't have to worry about any future shutdown the rest of the season. In a year where players are going to be dropping like flies with no notice, it will be huge to have a guy like Yordan to anchor down the lineup as the season goes on. There's definitely still some concern about him not being here, but I think it's outlandish to jump straight to "we won't see him on the field this season". If missing a week or two right now keeps him on the field the rest of the season, I'm okay with that trade. If we're getting to mid to late August and still no Yordan, then it's time to panic... but realistically, what can you do about it then?
  5. This guy has always been one of my darlings, a guy I've kept tabs on for years thinking he could turn into a really valuable fantasy player (especially with speed dying more each year). There's no doubt last season was dreadful- strikeouts up, walks down is a bad combo- and one to forget. There could have been some bad luck in play- his BABIP was down to .268, almost 30 points below his previous low of .293 (I'm excluding his first 25 PA sample size). Reports out of Red Sox camp have mentioned extra work with the hitting coaches and swing adjustments. It's definitely feasible that something was off last season and has since been tweaked, resetting some of the negatives from last season. Fenway is a great place to hit (Cincy was as well, don't get me wrong) and the Red Sox lineup is solid top to bottom. He won't have a prime spot in the lineup, but counting stats shouldn't be too hard to come by regardless of where he hits. Playing time could be a concern, but I highly doubt in any league you need to be drafting Peraza as your primary 2B. To me, he's undoubtedly someone to keep an eye on in the first week or so. In this sprint season you're going to need to act fast, so I don't have any issues with either drafting super late or grabbing off of the wire and holding for a week. If you don't see the playing time or he's not hitting, he's an easy cut. I tend to think he could be a sneaky good value this season.
  6. With the combination of his other tools, he doesn't need super elite power to be elite in fantasy. He hit 17 homers last season while stealing 28 bases, counting stats hurt a bit due to lineup spot. A .255 average isn't ideal, but also isn't terrible for someone who moved up quickly and playing full time in the MLB for their first season. We've made the point that maybe it will take a little longer than expected for it to all come together, but when it clicks for him I don't doubt that he can finish a season hitting around .300 with 20 homers and 35 steals to go along with good counting stats. Last season we only had 3 players (if you include Trea Turner who missed some time and hit 19 homers) who hit both the 20 home run and 35 steal mark. That would make Robles elite in my book.
  7. Bogaerts is a really nice comparison I think, at least numbers development wise. Obviously Xander doesn't have the speed Robles has, but he was a very good player that seemed to get overlooked because he didn't hit superstar status as fast as expected. Can absolutely see Robles flying under the radar (or even getting labeled as a bust) for a few years before taking off.
  8. Based off of the MLB Instagram page, looks like he homered off of Paxton as well.
  9. Hello all, The ABDBL is a free 12 team salary cap dynasty league that needs one replacement owner. The league is hosted on Yahoo and uses a Proboards to make transactions and keep track of finances. Daily h2h category league using all standard categories plus OBP, TB, QS, and SV+HD instead of just SV. The league is entering its 8th season and has a strong group of owners- many of which have been here since day one. The team is very good- a regular playoff team and championship contender. Highlights on the roster are Trout, Acuna, Stanton, Flaherty, and Bregman. This roster shouldn't last long and spots rarely come open in this league, so jump on this opportunity! Please contact me via DM or email at adifazio27@gmail.com for full league rules and roster. Thanks!

  11. I think you answered your own question. If you really want him, grab him in the 2nd.
  12. I’m excited to toss more in here, but I’m going to start with my holy grail of baseball freezing cold takes. Some years back, I had a rookie Nolan Arenado that I drafted in dynasty. I really liked him and was excited to have him anchor the squad for a while. However, I had a few good options at 3B and was weak at 2B. So I made a deal to get a young, category filler 2B and sent Arenado back because “well, you have to give to get.” That second baseman I got was Kolton Wong. I still struggle to see Arenado go bananas year after year. Talk about the wong call.
  13. If you’re avoiding the risk of Robles to take another guy, I can’t say I’d sign off on taking Robert instead with the red flags in his profile. Pham is a good player but has also had stints of being completely unusable in fantasy. Laureano I’ll give you is likely a safer choice than Robles, but it’s not like he has a long, proven track record.
  14. Great value this season. Will be a runs machine at the top of the Phillies lineup, crush in OBP and have a decent average. Very real shot at 100/25/80 with maybe up to 10 stolen bases. As usual, I’ll give my stipulation from someone who has owned Cutch every year of his career- he’s going to SUCK in April. Don’t give up too early.
