  1. What is wrong with the Yankees??!!!?
  2. I don't know, I see it as more of a 15/30 virus. Not too much raw power but above average speed
  3. Man that's tough. I love Y Alvarez counts TB and OBP, something he should be elite in. However, it's always possible for a sophomore slump. But if you could pare him with Story or Bregman that would be great.
  4. I was offered Verlander for my Bo Bichette and Matt Olson. I'm not keeping both hitters, possibly neither of them anyway, so Verlander seems like a win in this trade. It's 12 team mixed, H2H, 6 keepers, 7x7 (extra categories are OBP, SLG, L and HLD on top of the normal 5x5 categories...so the league slightly favors power bats, but is on the shallow side due to no MI/CI, and only 3 OFs) Current keepers: C- Gary Sanchez (possible 5th or 6th) 1st- Matt Olson (possible 5th or 6th) 2nd- Ketel Marte (definite keeper) SS- Bo Bichette (possible 5th or 6th) 3rd- LF- CF- RF- Aaron Judge (definite keeper) UTIL (1)- UTIL (2)- SP- Gerrit Cole (definite keeper) SP- Mike Clevinger (possible 5th or 6th) SP- Blake Snell (definite keeper)
  5. I can't make up my mind! I'm thinking of keeping 4 SPs ..Cole/Verlander/Clevinger/Snell (also keeping Judge and K-Marte) and using my loaded draft to get a ton of second/third tier hitters. I have 10 picks within the first 5 rounds (technically rounds 7-12 after keepers). I have 10 picks within the 73-132 range. Yes that's two picks per round and that would be many good tier-3 hitters (practically my whole offense). So my question is, am I being outrageous in thinking I can keep 4 SPs and not have it blow up in my face? Or is this a good way to corner the pitching market all to myself?
  6. The only knock against Bichette is the position he plays at. SS is sooo deep I might not spend that 60-70 pick on him and wait for Seager/Polanco/Andrus/Anderson way later, depends on the flow of the draft.
  7. Hey guys, I have a very unique opportunity, specific to me. I would greatly appreciate any input. It's 12 team mixed, H2H, 6 keepers, 7x7 (extra categories are OBP, SLG, L and HLD on top of the normal 5x5 categories...so the league slightly favors power bats, but is on the shallow side due to no MI/CI, and only 3 OFs) The situation: I'm thinking of keeping 4 SPs (Cole/Verlander/Clevinger/Snell) and using my loaded draft to get a ton of second/third tier hitters. I have 10 picks within the first 5 rounds (technically rounds 7-12 after keepers). I have 10 picks within the 73-132 range. Yes that's two picks per round.

So my question is, am I being outrageous in thinking I can keep 4 SPs and not have it blow up in my face? You couldn't really ask for a better 4 combo, the idea excites me. Current keepers: C- Gary Sanchez (possible 5th or 6th) 1st- Matt Olson (possible 5th or 6th) 2nd- Ketel Marte (definite keeper) SS- Bo Bichette (possible 5th or 6th) 3rd- LF- CF- RF- Aaron Judge (definite keeper) UTIL (1)- UTIL (2)- SP- Gerrit Cole (definite keeper) SP- Mike Clevinger (possible 5th or 6th) SP- Blake Snell (definite keeper)
  8. He looks like a modern-day Alfonso Soriano. Amazing tools but a 126 wRC+? He's obviously still super young and has room to grow but last year the stars aligned for him. Acuna is no where near the hitter Trout is.
  9. @tonycpsu Thanks a lot for running it, appreciate all that you do! For anyone that cares, I drafted with 3 main focuses based on league settings and the current state of the game in 2020 (juiced ball era) 1) Get pitching and build upon it heavily 2) Get OFs (5 OF league + Util spot is no joke) 3) Punt SBs (generally speedy players are overvalued in OBP, SLG, and OPS leagues. The more categories in the league, the more it dilutes the importance of each individual category). Best Pick: Gallo (pick 55) I don't know how he slipped my mind. A league that rewards OBP and disregards AVG completely. Gallo is a top 20 player in these settings (especially with 5 OFs). Worst Pick: Mondesi (pick 46) He's only great in 1/6 of the categories and actually very hurtful in the OBP category.
  10. Is this the same problem that was bothering him at the end of 2019? Did they do any injections or anything? Are they just hoping it goes away?
  11. I appreciate what you've done with these threads. I know it takes time and you've given a lot thought into these personal rankings. My thought: Marte is better than you're giving credit for. He doubled his launch angle in 2019, as well as doubling his barrel rate. He's always shown fantastic contact skills, but he just pounded the ball into the ground. He adjusted in 2019 (he showed signs of breaking out in the second half of 2018). What he did in 2019 is who he is now. Honestly, he could be even better if he improves his launch angle even more... to something like 15% instead of his current 11.5% (5.5% in 2018).
  12. I wonder if people now view Snell as the safer injury risk player
  13. Please delete this thread, I accidentally reposted
  14. Would you you take right now if you had to draft?
