  1. Interestingly enough, he performed far better against RHP than LHP in 2019.
  2. I'm in the minority, but Steve Blass kinda annoys me on broadcasts. Respect Steve and his longevity and loyalty, but I'm looking forward to Walk or Wehner on every broadcast from now on. As for the Pirates warning signs, it's not a matter of not having what it takes - they do, as evidence by their 3 straight playoff appearances in the mid-2010s - they simply don't want to. Huntington's Archer deal will go down as one of the biggest whiffs in MLB history and now he is also a fool for not trading vasquez, but he did compile some good teams a handful of years back that turned the corner. Even last year was a great team (by Pirates standards) - a >.500 team is a truly important milestone for the franchise. The problem has never been solely the GM, the staff, the manager, the scouts, etc., the problem has always been the owner. Bob Nutting took an 82-win team with $91M payroll in 2018 and cut it to about $70M for really no rhyme or reason. Buccos brought in roughly $254M in revenue in 2018 despite attendance dropping. Win or lose, it doesn't matter, the Bucs are extremely profitable and because of that there is really very little incentive to try to win. For Nutting, it's an investment and a higher payroll does nothing but take away from his bottom line.
  3. I've had 3 weeks in two years with an OBP under .331. Naturally, one of them was last week (.309). *SIGH* On to the 3rd place matchup
  4. So Kyle Gibson is opening now? Sweeeeeeeeeet, wish I realized that before adding him at 3 AM this morning
  5. Fair point. He's played 26 games, here are the 13 vs 13 splits: 1st 13: .333/.451/.524, 9R, 3 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 5 BRI, 1 NSB, 23.5% k rate, 11.8% BB rate, .448 BaBIP, .190 ISO 2nd 13: .292/.393/.500, 9R, 1 2B, 0 3B, 3 HR, 10 RBI, 0 NSB, 26.8% k rate, 12.5% BB rate, .367 BaBIP, .208 ISO Overall not too bad, but certainly a dip in some spots. Additionally, he's benefited a great deal from luck with a .407 BaBIP vs a 20.6% LD rate and a whopping 60.3% Med contact. The 25.5% k rate is also a bit worrisome, but that's not atypical of rookies in general. Still a guy I think projects to have nice longterm value. Again, probably not much more than a plug and play in small leagues (particularly redrafts), but a nice hold in Dynasty.
  6. Not overly impressive thus far. Also, just a 7.86 k/9, .258 BaBIP, and a 5.09 xFIP at AAA this year. Dude is a ticking timebomb imo.
  7. Buccos should have sold him at the deadline anyway. Another fudge up by Neil Huntington. Enjoy your cell Filipe, changing your name won't help you now.
  8. Funny how the juiced ball ERA has changed our outlook as I think many will agree that Chapman is a bit disappointing despite 34 homers. Agree with you on Solak with a caveat that he is probably closer to a must-own in dynasty formats, but not so much redrafts.
  9. Other than the occasional frustration with the lack of prospects in the data base (and somewhat limited ability to customize), Yahoo is way better than ESPN IMO. Fantrax is the most customizable and has the most players, but app sucks IMO and is basically a hyperlink to the website (OSB explains it above, just not my cup of tea). I ride-or-die with the Y!
  10. Not all of these guys are outside the top 100 and some could even pop up to the Show in 2020, but some less talked-about names that might be good bargains right now: OF Trevor Larnach - Min OF Julio Rodriguez - Sea 1B Grant Levigne - Col OF Travis Swaggerty - Pit 1B/3B Triston Casas - Bos OF Kyle Isbel - KC OF Lewin Diaz - Mia SP Kris Bubic - KC SP Jacob Heatherly - Cle SP Brailyn Marquez - Chc SP Edward Cabrera - Mia SP Ethan Hankins - Cle SP Quinn Priester - Pit
  11. Yankee guys, any chance he gets 1 more appearance at 1B and/or OF this season? His value is great as it is, but skyrockets in my league if he can be 1B, 3B, SS, and OF eligible.
  12. 4th division title in 6 years in my dynasty. Feeling fresh off the bye week, ready for the Division Championship/League Semis. Need the boys to step up for Yelich. BOL everyone, been a pleasure talkin shop with yous this year.
  13. @osb_tensor and by "you" i don't mean YOU specifically, just folks in general. Wanted to clarify that. You're right, that's his big thing, but much of the debate through 20 pages of this thread has been "is Avg/OBP enough if the counting stats aren't there?"
  14. Was just kinda going for counting stats, figured if you don't know about his elite avg/obp then you probably don't know who Jeff McNeil is to begin with.
  15. Current ranks among 2b-eligible players R - 12 H - 11 HR - T17 2b - 5 RBI - T18 Depending on depth of a particular league, he could go anywhere from 7-11th IMO. With that said, I've never been great at projecting ADPs, they always seem off to me.
