  1. This didn't age well. Doesn't look so bad now. 😆
  2. It's a free league. Shoot me an email at: alexpitt87@gmail.com
  3. Fantrax league - previously ESPN for the first 12 years however moving over due to how badly ESPN sucked this year... 18 Team Dynasty League (essentially a dynasty, keep 24 of 40). H2H Points 40 man rosters Keep 24 Draft includes those not kept as well as first year players (Vaugh, Rutschman, etc.) League is unique in that pitching scores negative points (for the most part). The goal is to get to 54 IP while giving up the least amount of points (similar to real baseball). It's a unique concept and takes a couple weeks to get used to however a majority of the people in the league have been in it for almost the full duration. Available team is not very good however does have the 2nd overall pick. Non-playoff teams (7) will get the first 14 picks in the draft with this being our first year on Fantrax. Looking to increase the parity a bit. So this team will have picks #2 and #9 overall. Team probably will not compete this year however in 2021 could be setup nice to make a playoff run. Attached is the roster as a CSV file. Send me a note if you're interested or have further questions. I take bringing on new owners seriously to find the right fit; I'm happy to answer any questions but don't want to have to replace this (or any) team for awhile. https://www.fantrax.com/fantasy/league/x45y70yjk44bohid/team/roster;teamId=11x5cnb2k44bohim
  4. Yep. Gonna pile onto the Marte hype train before it leaves the station. Stats in rookie ball were unreal and it looks like he's got wheels too. Going into this year I thought it'd be Antoni Flores but I didn't see enough there. Marte is the deep league major riser stash.
  5. Promoted to AA. I know a lot of folks had this guy earmarked as the number one pick of FYPD. Decent numbers in A. Someone to watch that could put it all together at any point imo.
  6. Fun while it lasted. Next hype train fellas 😎
  7. No denying his back to ball skills.
  8. I just want to confess I was wrong about this guy. Weight has been lifted off my shoulders.... In all seriousness, the McCutchen comp I saw seems spot on.
  9. It's interesting watching these prospects who gain a lot of attention and how their threads just slowly run off the tracks. -starts with the positives and hype build up -player keeps raking -folks here get bored, nothing to talk about so we debate something meaningless -folks argue with the trolls -player gets promoted to next level -rinse/repeat This thread will spiral out of control soon....buckle up. To summarize, Franco is short and won't hit homers, Vlad Jr is fat and won't stay at 3B so he's useless and Alvarez is probably the worst defender I've ever seen on a Tuesday so he stands no shot at the next level.
  10. 100M guaranteed to buy out 2 free agent years? I have to think he and most stud prospects go for that. Only part about Acunas contract I think he got shafted is the team options. Other than that it's close to a win win.
  11. Yeah makes me sad. This guy feels like Hoskins 2.0. I'm in a league where guys like Hoskins are top 25 offensive players. Just the way the points shake out.
  12. Played 10 days in a row and tossed up hitless games the last 2. Thinking routine day off. Nothing to see here
  13. I'm betting an Acuna type contract gets done. This guy is special and I think the rays will pony up the cash
  14. One of these things is not like the other. Lol I get what you're saying, I'm just appreciating the one and hopefully only time I'll see these 4 names together.
  15. What's it take to get this guy in a dynasty. Just a ballpark.
  16. Part of me wants him in AAA all year so he hits 50 homers.
  17. I'd like to sell since I'm deep however I'm not sure he's got BUY status? Most prospects are valued more by their owners than by folks trying to acquire. Just my two cents. I'd be curious to see any completed deals if anyone has seen any?
  18. Made his first error today. Forget it boys.... Maybe 2020
  19. So an MLB ready bat needs to work on his fielding in LF so the clear solution is to start him at DH the day after an off day.
  20. Well Law was higher on most on Wander this time last year and was the main reason I picked him up. So I'll give him some credit however the guy needs to own up to when he misses, we all miss.
  21. I'm all aboard the hype train but let's not pretend like raking for 72 career AAA games means he has nothing left to prove.
  22. [...] I trust their player development more than most. So if that means we wait another month or 2 until he's up, I'm ok with seeing gaudy AAA numbers. Doesn't do anyone any good if he comes up and struggles or doesn't have consistent ABs.
  23. Random thought....I love how one of the main arguments against him is that he plays in the PCL. The other guys putting up ridiculous stats in the PCL are all seasoned vets over age 24 outside of Hiura. The bottom line is that he's crushing a league he's young for. If the point of all the PCL talk is to say he's not going to hit 80 homers (162 game pace of where he's at now) then I sincerely appreciate all the invaluable comps.
  24. If you had Wander. What would a 1:1 take to get him today?
