  1. This kid has really moved up the loaded Padres prospect lists, right around #10 in most lists. Seeing his velocity progress like it has, going from upper 80’s, to touching 93,94 is a great sign given he’s only 20 now. The spin rate on his fastball isn’t very good, but he’s averaged 11.8/K/9 so far, so if he continues to develop good habits, like settling up his secondary plus changeup and curve, along with arm slot angle, he could continue to climb higher in the Padres system.
  2. As far as favorite players go, I’m sure Al Kaline is on plenty of lists. He was an exceptional person on and off the field, may he RIP.
  3. Considering how many top 100 lists he’s on, number 89 Francisco Alvarez still seems undervalued for his potential. A .916 OPS is nice for anyone in Rookie league, but from a 17 year old catcher, who was the youngest hitter in the appy league, it’s pretty impressive.
  4. Seth Corry- he had a 12.62K/9 and a 2.87 FIP in A ball, if he can improve on his 4.51 BB/9, he could definitely be a breakout.
  5. Seems like we’re seeing an Astros story every 20 minutes, looking forward to when sports media gets something else to sink their teeth into.
  6. Different strokes for different folks.
  7. First rankings I’ve seen that had Rutschman ranked 4th among “first year players”. Kind of surprising considering his talent.
  8. First ranking list I’ve seen that had Rutschman 4th amongst first year players. Understandable if Abrams develops more power.
  9. With a FIP around 3.00, and 10K/9, Woodruff has a ceiling worth the price of his draft position.
  10. Nice work on the rankings coach, just curious were you have Spencer Howard at?
  11. I believe in Ridley’s talent, but he has only had 2 good games when Hooper was in the lineup. It was frustrating to see Ryan constantly overlook Ridley. if Hooper signs someplace else, Ridley could be a huge asset.
  12. Thomas finally has the same amount of touches as Taysom Hill at 6. I’m no expert, but that doesn’t seem right.
  13. They ran the ball 5X in the first half and 9X total, not a recipe for success when Fournette is in the backfield. Poor game management, hopefully that changes next week.
  14. You’d think after last week when Ridley got next to nothing, that the Falcons would get him more involved in the offense early on. He still isn’t involved, and when they actually did throw to him, he’s having a panic attack from shock. Figured Ridley would take the next step to being a top tier wide receiver, but as it stands, he’s looking more like Sanu than Julio from a fantasy standpoint.
  15. Falcons are working on their 10 man offensive scheme.
  16. This guy just hasn’t slowed down, .299/.427/.519 in A, then .338/.430/.475 in high A, while having a career 3/2 BB/K as a catcher. He has to be in a lot of top 100 lists by years end, if this continues.
  17. Since the Diamondbacks like to bench hitters after having a good game, Walker will have to make way for Cron tomorrow against the Mets.
  18. Points league with numerous options like QS, Holds and CYC. 15 minors allowed, and you can keep up to 8 MLB players. Some of the players on the team includes Rhys Hoskins, Whit Merrifield, EE, Josh Donaldson, Rick Porcello and more. Send me an email if your interested, and I’d be happy to walk you through some of the unique settings available. We use leaguesafe and the league has been around for almost 20 years!
