  1. Closer and will probably be a closer for the foreseeable future unless traded to a contender to pitch in middle relief.
  2. Big Boi gonna eat with the injury to Seags.
  3. Richard Rodriguez, 69.1 IP 88 K 2.47 ERA 1.07 WHIP, hm..... Middle relief somewhere behind Felipe Rivero Vazquez.
  4. I think he will get chance to hit lefties and be an every day player. Sample very small from MLB last year, only struck out once in 14 PA vs them though and he could hit both in minor leagues.
  5. Tulo will get a couple days off a week, andujar will get one, voit will get one, and miscellaneously one of the rest of the team will get some time off. He will end up playing almost every day in that OG Zobrist kind of way, I think.
  6. DJ really underrated in this thread. I think wrc+ overly penalizes coors players. There’s an acclimation difference going to and from coors all the time. We’ve seen matt Holliday flourish with 4 additional all star years after leaving coors... last year DJL sacrificed some contact to try and lift the ball. He hit 15 HR. He’s moving to a still friendly park, yankee stadium. He’s gonna have multi eligibility and play most days. Would not surprise me whatsoever if he ends up hitting more HR this year than last and has a rebounds of sorts; and yes, outside of coors.
  7. It's gonna be a young guy who flashes excellent tools and, luckily for us earlier investors, continues to produce when advancing up levels. Freudis Nova, D'Shawn Knowles, guys like that come to mind. Some others already mentioned ITT.
  8. That outfield is so bad though. I think he’ll at least get a shot at lefties and if he puts up even like a 70 wrc+ vs lefties that’ll be enough for him to still play most days vs lefties. His defense is great.
  9. Missed a lot of last year with a life-threatening bacterial infection. Recovered fully from it in the offseason. Quietly appears to be making a late career advancement in his bat skills. Will be batting leadoff for Cleveland in a bad outfield and should be playing almost every day if he's truly healthy. https://www.pitcherlist.com/going-deep-leonys-martin-is-the-most-overlooked-player-in-fantasy-baseball/ This article sold me on him. I'm not as bullish as the writer, although I do see potential for 15/15+ and a full slate of at bats, which makes him a deep league bargain and potentially someone who is relevant in shallower formats too. He piled up 2.5 fWAR in only half a season last year. I really do think he'll play almost every day, Greg Allen, Tyler Naquin, and co. are not stealing at bats from him.
  10. he's an ace, who cares what his attitude or politics or antics are. He's an awesome pitcher with cy young potential and he's not terribly expensive compared to his upside. I'd rather have him than Corey Kluber and Blake Snell, he's probably my #6 or #7 pitcher. Waffling on whether I prefer Bauer or Cole.
  11. Richards is very interesting for the elite tier changeup alone. He’s a guy with real strikeout upside, that 9+ k/9 could remain and perhaps with more seasoning we see the ERA and WHIP go down a bit.
  12. Always believed in JBJesus, swing changes, success on base paths, potent lineup, guaranteed playing time because of gold glove (finally!) defense. Good ingredients for fantasy success are here, so let’s get a stew going.
  13. I don’t have the cite handy, but I’ve heard Yandy can play 1B, DH, 3B, and OF this season. It may be a semi/poor man super utility situation.
  14. Looked into oberg further, he got better as season went on, slider success, more Ks. 10.34 k/9 2nd half. I’m liking him more and more. The only negative is coors home field, but whatever. I think I gotta find a way to add him, just figuring the drop is tough. is he better than joe kelly or tony Watson? I’m a massive believer in cy kelly and tony watson really good at limiting walks too... i think i toss back watson if I have to make a swap. My other RPs are too good to consider dropping (Diego Castillo sp/rp, Edwin diaz, Kirby Yates, Alex colome)
  15. 🍒🍒🍒 This is you, cherry picking. He missed some time earlier in the year from a foot injury, too, bad foul ball to his foot. All peripherals and history show a talented, reliable hitter. Steals are just gravy (and he will likely chip in a handful).
  16. Wish Oberg struck more guys out. But good tout nonetheless. CSB, but I run a lot of RP — so for my team construction I focus very heavily on K upside from both SP and RP (it adds up). Ratios very nice though, appears to be good holds candidate, low walk rate (which matters for me, I play k/bb league)...8.74 k/9 isn’t horrible horrible...if it gets up a little more, I’d like him. Actually I’m talking myself into him...
  17. Michael Pineda is the most frustrating fantasy pitcher I have ever owned, he obviously is talented but when he melts down it is a nuclear disaster. Like a moth to a flame, here I am again, thinking about the upside...
  18. Rendon’s floor is amazing and his upside is higher than people in this thread are appreciating. He’s an exceptional hitter and 1st round value isn’t outside the realm of possibilities he returns in 2019. His ADP is 44 right now in NFBC leagues. People here talking 5th round will miss out on him in most competitive leagues. And I think 44 is a very fair ADP, and I would personally draft him before that point. Just for example, Javy Baez is #13 and I’d rather own Rendon.
  19. I will die on this hill. I will happily eat crow if Christin sucks. That all said, as a PSA to the whole RW community, get this super stud now before it is too late. hahaha. but for real.
  20. I edited the bautista bit because he Ks way too much. you caught me before edit took place. I think I'm bailing on Palka.
  21. you know what, you guys are the voice of reason and I kinda agree with you all, i'm gonna trade for steven souza and get this turd off my team. Will be interesting to revisit this thread in a couple months. There's Hills to die on and this isn't the one for me.
  22. I'm not his biggest believer either. I cited many negatives in my initial post too, you know. He doesn't have a very long leash on my team. But I think there's potential upside here and the guy at least deserves a rotoworld thread. I think gun to my head, more likely than not he's a AAAA player, but I also think there's a small band of his range of outcomes where the chips all fall and he's mashed 40+ HR. I also think a RHP platoon replication of last year is within his range of outcomes which still has value in deep leagues.
  23. https://www.mlb.com/cut4/daniel-palka-is-an-elite-power-hitter/c-288685816 I never said he was as good as Stanton or Judge. He's clearly not. But his power is up there, his BB% seems likely to rise just based off his profile, and he's an interesting guy for daily leagues vs. RHP (especially a league like mine which is OBP/SLG and no average).
