  3. Indians are currently a playoff team. SD is only 2.5 games back. CWS are getting better and want to contend next year. I think all those clubs would have to completely collapse or be blown away to deal their closer.

  4. I think there's way too much optimism in what little we've seen of Tatis so far. I think he's a stud long term but his resume so far is not without warts: 28.6% K% (18th worst) 69.2% Contact (19th worst) .240 XBA, .456 XSLG .419 BABIP 48% GB rate Maybe he improves on these numbers the rest of the season, but based on what we know right now I would rather spend my 1st rounder on a player with stronger plate discipline and a bit more track record.

  6. Boston said Nathan Eovaldi will be the closer once he returns. _____________ Greg Holland with the save. is it worth holding onto Hirano or Lopez? with a 4-0 lead yesterday Hirano pitched the 7th. this tweet says Twins are in on both Brad Hand and Kirby Yates. I've heard Yates, and Giles. Indians are now only 5.5 games back, likely not trading Hand as of now. Padres are only 2 games back int he wold card. would they trade Yates? ___________ I see this just updated today.. http://rotoprofessor.com/trade-deadlin

  7. Robel in disguise? I say Garcia is for real...has been transforming scoreboards with power and speed...has been playing 2B and is already 1B 3B elig in Yahoo... Forever Young? I think he can stay in the rotation in the desert albeit w an innings cap...but no hit bids are hard to come by and the kid looks wise! Let Alex Young pitch! The Robert Report: Luis Robert is stalking the majors like a Pantera! AAA bound and September might be a callin', or sooner...just get him...you're present self will thank your past self and you will both be so happy...

  10. I guess you’re right that he didn’t get a ton of regular season work so his 2.7 ypc may not be damning. But that wasn’t good. Being clearly behind Brown all year wasn’t good. Then Brown/Gurley get hurt and the Rams sign CJA off the couch and let him be the lead guy over Kelly. And he performs much better. Then the Rams resign Brown and trade up to draft another back in the early 3rd. All this for a guy who, although I know a lot of people liked prior to last year’s draft, only has 6th round draft capital. If he’s a dent in Henderson’s value then pretty much every rb in the league has to be con

  11. Not to be a wet blanket, but I’m surprised nobody has mentioned the 34.2% strikeout rate in 199 plate appearances at AAA. This guy might very well be Chris Davis. That being said he’s free and I picked him up in a bunch of leagues so goooo Robel!

  12. Having 60 players on pace to hit 30 home runs doesn't mean that 60 players are going to hit 30 home runs. Some will get injured, many will simply cool off. Some others who are below a 30 HR pace will have hot 2nd halves and replace the ones who fall off the pace, but that is still highly unlikely to lead to 60 players hitting that threshold. A true apples-to-apples comparison is impossible since the ball is different this year, but I still think comparing half season numbers to full season numbers within each season is instructive. in 2018, 44 players were on pace to crack 30 HR by

  16. Major League Baseball should be ashamed, embarrassed, humiliated. Let’s talk 2 things here, A. the one representative per team rule is a joke. And it was further bastardized by Stroman pulling out and another Yankee being named. Nobody gives 2 f**** about the one per team rule, especially when it’s contingent. Furthermore Tatis missed a month and has as many homers as Paul Dejong. In Paul Dejong’s mediocre at best wildest dreams he’s 1/1,000,000th the talent of Tatis. Dude is a nobody, a nothing. He shouldn’t be at an all star game because nobody gives a 2 squirts of urine paying entran

  17. This got me thinking, so i looked in to it. Turner is not even close to an injury-prone player. He's actually quite durable and very unlucky at the same time. He has missed a total of 10 games in his CAREER that were not related to being hit by pitch. He's had two broken hand/finger injuries due to HBP, that says nothing about an player being injury prone... its just bad luck.

  18. He was 24th last season in 9 cat roto. I can see someone thinking he's a first round target, but 6th is insane. I don't want to be any more critical than I have to, but yes that was a surprise.

  20. .256 BABIP suggests he’s been lucky. However he’s reinvented himself this year. His fastball got absolutely obliterated last year so he’s throwing it 10% less and upped changeup use massively from 13% to 26%. And in doing so it’s the second best changeup in baseball. Guys who’s are having success with changeup seem to have highest % of success navigating the juiced ball era. Right now top 10 rated changeups, Luis Castillo - all star, Cashner as mentioned, Ryu - cy young candidate/all star, Mike Minor - all star, Hamels - would of been all star if not hurt, Trevor Richards - solid year

  21. I think Hendriks keeps the job unless he starts blowing it. Treinan struggled with his command even when healthy so I think Hendriks gets a good long look. If he continues to deliver there's no way he gets taken out of the role.

  22. The statcast info and numbers are cool and all. They can be helpful and accurate at times, for sure, but some players are just different. That’s Tatis. Watch the kid play and you know he’s not like everyone else. He’s special. Trust your eyes and not the calculators.

  24. I might be in the minority, but I'd prefer team B. Team A has no 3,5,6, or 7th round pick. That's tough. Kupp is easily replaceable and Vance is just a dart throw like all the tight ends. At least with Team B, you get all your picks except the 4th rounder. I think in any league that allows trading of future draft picks, the owner should be required to put down next year's entry fee as collateral. You quit, then you're forfeiting your entry fee. Maybe take half that fee and put it towards the prize pool for the upcoming season and allow the new owner to play at a reduced cost as sor

  25. I never thought of Josh Allen as cute, but whatever helps with your QB rankings... At any rate, here's an interesting tidbit. Cam Newton in 2016 had a career low 52.9% completion rate. Josh Allen was nearly identical -- 52.8% in his rookie year. The common denominator -- Kelvin Benjamin was the #1 WR.

  28. All catchers "share" time. And his "time share" is about average. During the last 7 days the O's had one day off. Of the other 6 days/games he caught 4 of them and Severino caught 2. That is the basic ratio of most lead catchers.

  31. Seems like George Valera is getting more love here but Kristian Robinson is living up to the hype so far as a power/speed threat. The K rate is high, but what do you expect, and he still hits for average and walks plenty.

  32. i agree with you well enough if you're saying, "i don't think goff is good," but just like damien williams in kansas city, if you put an average guy into a well-oiled machine, the machine will elevate his performance. think of it as adding a nitrous tank to your honda accord for a drag race: it's a decent automobile that wouldn't be race worthy in another situation, but with that nitrous it's a rocket on wheels. so i think that was the point i was making (or attempting to make) in my post: while goff might not be an outstanding QB, his performance is outstanding 1) within a sean mcvay off

  38. This is a flawed approach. Hes been hit by pitch 11 times in his career. His teammate Victor Robles has been hit 16 times before the all-star break this season alone (hasnt broken anything). Look under the hood, dont just look ignorantly look at the surface numbers.

  39. It’s pathetic how much MLB has just handed Vlad everything. Dudes been horrific in his callup. Putrid in field, putrid base running, average offensively. They just anoint him everything though. Meanwhile Tatis is an elite base runner, elite hitter, great fielder. All around talent in infield. Trout and Tatis Jr should be baseballs biggest stars. Instead mlb is tossing all their eggs in a fat .740 OPS 20 year olds basket who can’t play a lick of D. He better develop fast.

  41. also fwiw, Fernando Tatis as a 20 year old has now collected about 1/3 of the number of AB's he should be expected over a full year (205/615) as a lead-off hitter his numbers projected over 615 AB's 39 homers, 39 sb's, 135 runs, 90 rbi

  44. He's going early 6th rd in high stakes drafts; would much rather have a top-4 QB (Watson, Rodgers, Luck) or someone like Corey Davis at that ADP. People are acting like Malcolm Brown and John Kelly aren't there just bc the Rams traded up to draft him.

  46. I think too much is being made of a few bad games, esp when they were really important ones. But that doesn't mean jack for fantasy. You have to look at the whole picture and he did really well most of the year and yes I think losing Kupp, then Gurley gimping around, were both huge factors..trying to predict how many bad games, never mind when they will come, a player has is a fool's errand.
