  1. Tucker, then Hilliard. Is Trent Grisham available? He has a good eye so his BB rate/OBP should be solid, which is beneficial in most points leagues.
  2. JD Davis wins the NL Triple crown. Ramirez on the Indians wins the AL Triple Crown. Verlander's ERA is over 4.00.
  3. 1) Hill 2) Weaver 3) Keller (although i think he's close to weaver) 4) Yonny
  4. I grew up worshipping NFL football but haven't watched any regular season games since the early 90s. simply stated, there's too much "down time" and, frankly, very little action. Nearly 3.5 hours are required to complete a 60 minute game. I just find it too dull anymore....
  5. The best one I've seen so far this year is "Eaton Her Posey"
  6. these are my thoughts, too. My vote is for Giolito.
  7. For what it's worth: Baseball HQ (which, IMO, is the creme of the crop) conducted a study a few years back concerning performance in the first year of a "large" FA signing. Below is text from their 2020 Baseball Forecaster. (For those unfamiliar with Baseball HQ, "BPV" is an acronym for 'base performance value', which is a formula that combines a player's raw skills for contact/K rate, power, speed, and 'batting eye'.) Contract year performance (Tom Mullooly) There is a contention that players step up their game when they are playing for a contract. Research looked at contract year players and their performance during that year as compared to career levels. Of the batters and pitchers studied, 53% of the batters performed as if they were on a salary drive, while only 15% of the pitchers exhibited some level of contract year behavior. How do players fare after signing a large contract (minimum $4M per year)? Research from 2005-2008 revealed that only 30% of pitchers and 22% of hitters exhibited an increase of more than 15% in BPV after signing a large deal either with their new team, or re-signing with the previous team. But nearly half of the pitchers (49%) and nearly half of the hitters (47%) saw a drop in BPV of more than 15% in the year after signing. Although the text states that the research occured between 2005-2008, Im fairly certain that their studies such as this one, are validated every few years. Not certain about that, however. Regardless, at least during this 05-08 period, there appeared to be a measurable difference in performance for players signing large FA deals.
  8. agreed with all of this. I see no reason to select Goldy a few rounds earlier than Bell, at current ADPs.
  9. Buys: Meadows, Snell, Edwin Diaz, Thor, Keller, Chris Archer (based on current ADP no reason not to) Fades (based on current ADPs): Sale, Scherzer, JD Mart, Tatis, Judge, Alonso, Dolittle
