  3. Liked that column. That said, he’s insufferably arrogant and physically incapable of admitting error. Wish him well, but frankly there are far better analysts out there. He seemed far more interested in bashing the Giants organization on Twitter on a daily basis than doing actual analysis.

  6. Spot on. I have that same feeling about Nate, much like when Josh Bell debuted a couple years ago. There are some players that you can just tell by their batting stance, and demeanor at the plate that they fully expect to crush the opposing pitchers, ace or scrub is irrelevant. Nothing in Nate's approach hints of any pitches out-matching him, whether it's a hard fastball, sinking change, or big hook. There's no hesitant swings, or emotional quirks when he's up to bat. Just a composed, simple and direct swing with very, very minimal head movement. He's patient enough to wait for his pitch

  7. I did a write up on Nate back when the Ray's promoted him the first time. Physically, he's a mammoth with that redneck / farmer type strength, whereas when he makes contact, the ball JUMPS off his bet effortlessly. This is a big factor on why there's been a lot of comparisons to Pete Alonso. On top of that asset he has, his eye at the plate is significantly better than most rookies, and I'd bet the more consistent playing time he receives, the more he'll showcase that patience, working deep into pitch counts until he gets his pitch. That first time called up, he looked solid, but natu

  8. Basically Vuce is a Roto beast and you should draft him as he is underrated EVERY SINGLE SEASON! I'd say I prefer Vuce to Gobert nowadays, especially now Magic have got themselves a decent team (can you believe that 😂) and are in the playoff picture. His game is SO perfectly rounded, he is criminally underrated. I think both strategies can work (getting anchors, and getting mostly rounded players), but basically if you're in a good league you need luck to win no matter what. The trend towards rest (which will only get worse this year after Raps won with Load management) unfortunately suck

  12. Anderson (ankle) took batting practice and went through mobility drills, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Anderson sustained a high-ankle sprain June 25 in Boston and was given a four-to-six week prognosis. He's looking at a return around the end of the July and will likely require a rehab assignment.

  14. It's too hypothetical to make a definitive statement. Your first round pick will always be BPA. Then your second pick should ideally shore up the weakness of the first pick. So if you're early in the second and debating on whether to take Vuc or Stifle, it will depend largely on your first round pick. If you picked Curry, who is only behind the median a little in rebounds, blocks, FG% then Stifle might be more complimentary than Vuc. If you picked someone else in the first, Vuc might be better. Also, the notion that you shouldn't pick players whose value is heav

  16. Just try to draft the best player you can. If Gobert is the best player on the board, get him. You have plenty of time to balance your roster later. You do absolutely want to draft a balanced team. Sometimes, you end up in a huge hole in a category in, like, December. If you're going to get a 1 there, don't be afraid to punt it. And don't wait until it's too late to salvage it. You should place a bit more value on certain stats early, as opposed to others, too. Points are obviously more important than FG% early. You can get bigs to boost your FG% later that cost you nothing. You can'

  17. It's tough because there's always trade offs. My general strategy in roto is to try and draft both - its nice to have an anchor in each cat. However, I think you want to build on that advantage and try to win that category. Balancing % is tricky, you want a few big anchors on both sides, which is rare, hence a player like Aldridge is so valuable, because he can anchor both FG and FT with very little TO. It's also why Lillard is ranked so high, because of his FT impact, and why Gallo will be valuable in limited games because he gets over 5 attempts on 90%. Anyway, getting at l

  18. I read this on twitter from a respected trainer and fitness guru. Being out of shape after hitting 91 home runs Monday takes an abnormal amount of recovery time. Add in the fact that Vlads diet is likely high in bread and carbs means that he’s more susceptible to immflamtion and longer recovery time. Also the fact that he plays in a dome means he doesn’t get much vitamin D and raises his white blood cell count. Something to keep an eye on.

  19. Hi guys, I'm working on an app that makes real-time add/drop recommendations on Fantasy bball, so I decided to reach out for ideas. It's a tool that sends you a notification if a player gets injured in a game and their replacement is trending up, or if a trade happens that opens up playing time, and so forth. I was getting frustrated about missing on hot pickups if I don't check Yahoo fantasy app 20 times on busy days. Usually when they become popular adds, it's too late. So I decided to make an app that sends instant recommendations. Don't know if there's one already out there, so f

  27. Thanks for the answers, guys! Auto-pickups: Something to consider. It's possible, and certainly on my list (though lower than the core functionality). Living in Europe, I have the same problems. However, as @Idoolittle pointed out, this is a feature that needs to be carefully considered Syncing with the league: Yes, the app will be synced with your league and team. Sit/start notifications: Great idea! Very useful, easy to implement as well. I'll add it to the nice-to-have list. @miasma16, thank you, very insightful. Good points about customising recommendations for your

Large majority of research comes from Roto Forum though. I have about 10 of you pegged as decent opinions and about 50 of yall as dumb takes. So yeah, thanks Roto Forum 😁

One case in particular that irked me was he hyped up Rex burkhead and then when he went down tried to say I told you so about James white?

  31. He could probably do this, however there are many issues with this (making it essentially impossible to implement properly). The main issue being an automatic drop/add might occur on players you didn't want to add/drop. For example, let's say a superstar player goes down for a few months (i.e. KD). Would you be happy if you woke up the next morning and KD was dropped from your team? Probably not. I get where you're coming from, but I think actually performing the transaction itself is probably a step too far. As for recommendations for the OP, it sounds like you're trying to do this anyway,

  34. I needed to look that up: 39 targets and a carry in 4 games, for 23/350/3. That is indeed not bad, but we have to add that by that time Anderson was one of the few players still alive, with eg Enunwa and Crowell down. He may not see those numbers in a full team.

  38. Unfortunately, as an owner in a QS league, I do not share your enthusiasm. Nothing against Strips showing, he pitched great tonight, but Roberts unwillingness to let him go past 70 pitches tonight even while pitching so well, is more than a little concerning.

  39. My thoughts exactly...For those of us in QS leagues, not sure we can continue to hold if they won’t let him go over 70+. There was no reason he couldn’t have gone over 80 pitches tonight.

  41. Yup its all about the balance, which is also why I think its important to have some flexibility in terms of player rankings / best on the board, as the players value will change relative to your previous picks. If its the mid rounds and you've ignored or haven't built up a certain category, say big man stats, or you don't have a point guard yet, it increases their value to your team, because if you wait again, the next tier down might look pretty desolate. Usually people end up chasing blocks or assists, and you'll see a run of point guards or bigs at certain points in the draft, because get

  42. I watched Munoz pitch last night and he was throwing smoke -- more than a few in the triple digits. Didn't seem like he always knew where it was going, though. Strong possibility that he is the closer of the future and a great dynasty grab but I doubt they would want to put the pressure on a young kid of putting him in the closer role after two weeks in the big leagues no matter how well he pitches, even if they do deal Yates. Maybe an opportunity or two in September, but I think even that is optimistic.

  45. Mike Cameron finished his career with 50 WAR, which is about 10 WAR short of the hall of fame threshold. Go back and look at his year-to-year stats from 1999-2006. And now consider a “rich man’s version” of that, which is what Sleepy said. With all due respect, you have to read closer so that threads don’t get derailed.
