  1. Quick roundup: Atlanta Hawks: Interested in Capela, Steven Adams. Pivoted away from Drummond due to extension demands. Hawks Expressed Interest In Trading For Jakob Poeltl. Some of those teams have inquired about John Collins, thinking the Hawks might be worried about extension talks with Collins in the offseason, Hawks have shown no interest in dealing Collins yet. Boston Celtics: Another team engaged with the Houston Rockets in trade talks for center Clint Capela. Brooklyn Nets Charlotte Hornets: Malik Monk Draws Interest From Members Of

  2. The Knicks are reminding me of that annoying dude in your fantasy league that thinks he can finesse your early round player away with a cornucopia of mid/late round players and hot WW pickups.

  3. I think Dieng might make it to the rockets if that 4 team trade goes through. He might be good for them too, he can shoot the 3 pretty decently so they would finally be able to have 5 guys above the 3. Imagine picking up Dieng today and he puts up Capella value ROS.

  8. There’s no warning signs, velo loss, recent injuries, etc. He’s got as much risk as any stud pitcher. All of them can get injured. But his track record as a horse and lack of red flags mean that the spectre of age is overblown.

  14. Right, but there is zero sign of it in his profile. Wouldn't you like to see any tangible evidence of regression before you pass on ELITE production and not just pass on it because you think this year it randomly happens despite zero warning signs? The trend in his profile right now is sustainability. 94.8 velocity on goods fastball last year... Harder than he threw in 2013-2016 and on par with career average of 95.0. Swinging strikes of 16.1% the best of his career, topping his previous best of 14.5% the year prior. Z-Contact of 77.7%, best of his career. SIERA of 2.95 the 2nd

  15. Bogaerts 141 wRC+ JD 139 wRC+ Mookie 135 wRC+ Devers 132 wRC+ Let’s be clear, “Fourth best hitter on his own team” is not only false, But based on how close and great all these guys are, it’s an attempt to be intentionally misleading. Mookie was still REALLY good. They happened to have 3 top 25 hitters in MLB. Lol The home/road splits is also an attempt to be misleading. I know you know this, but all the people loving your post apparently aren’t aware that just about every team hits better at home than on the road. I’d expect Mookie to hit less HRs in some of the larg

  19. Whoooaaaa take it easy on that strawman! Literally no one has mentioned a word about owners pockets, just the realism of how a monster contract that turns bad negatively affects your franchise for years with the Luxury Tax limits and loss of draft pick penalties and how little confidence there is of Mookie being an impact player just a few years forward. Mookie has turned down 30 per year over 10 years and stated he wants to go to free agency. Why let a player walk out on you for nothing when you can get a significant return and still win this year... He was the 4th best hitter in th

  20. What a bunch of nonsense, especially the part about Capela not fitting into today's game. Not every team has to have KAT (nor should they want to). Capela is elite at all phases of the pick and roll (people like you don't understand what that does to a defense, and how it creates better 3-point looks), very good for a center at defending it and very good at rim protection. At his age and with a reasonable deal with a few years on it, he's one of the best assets in the NBA that isn't on a rookie deal.

  27. How can you say a top 90 pick is "great value" for a guy with zero MLB experience who had a 5:1 K:BB ratio at AAA? Yes, the upside is enormous, but the hype is out of control. Everyone keeps saying how his price could skyrocket if he has a big spring, but nobody wants to admit that it works both ways. If he has a terrible spring his price will fall.

  30. Who cares about "skills level." It is not competitive any more as a league. NBA is run by about a half dozen players. It sucks because of that. And quit saying people who are against 12 year / 420 mil contracts are "for the owners" and their pocketbooks. You never saw John Henry complaining at all about the money. Or the money he paid out in luxury tax penalties. He has been THE biggest spender in baseball for years now so get over that false argument. Some of us fans here are for the team and not having albatross contracts preventing the team from winning. We are for th

  31. Watch Drummond get traded for Randle. Casey would start Randle/Maker and Miller would start Morris/Drummond, thereby screwing the owners of both Christian Wood and Mitchell Robinson.

  32. Why do people get reality confused with hate? Tom Brady was awful in that Super Bowl. Go and deny it all you want. His numbers were awful and the eye test confirms that. This year Brady was bad. I know, you fans like to come up with a bunch of excuses. If only the same excuses worked for guys like Rodgers and Wilson... Watching him play all he threw was dump offs and even his stats are bad once they got through the easiest first half schedule in history Here's the thing mate, I don't give a damn what his decline was. All i know is there was a decline. You watch him play

  33. The cupboard is bare? What tells you that, some arbitrary top 100 list? Arms like Mata, Houck, Groome and Ward may not be top 100 specs but that have a lot of potential. Noah Song is down their prospect list but a nice prospect arm. Jarren Duran looks like he can be an outstanding OF too, he draws some walks, has 40+ SB speed and hits for a high average. You already mentioned Casas and Dalbec. Their system may not be great, or even really good, but they have some guys down there to help. I mean, cool story bro? This is a lot of conjecture. A wRC+ of 135 was their 4th best bat

  35. Last two weeks: Rank 99 - 57% fg (8.1 attempts), 79% FT (5.4 attempts), 14.5 / 5 / .5 / 1 / .8 and 1 three and 1.4 TO in just 22 mpg Last 7 days: Rank 80 - 51% FG (8.8 attempts), 88% FT (4.3 attempts), 13.8 / 5.5 / .5 / 1.5 / .8 and 1 three and 1.8 TO in just 21 mpg How about over the last 30 days? Rank 99 - 52% FG, 81% FT, 12 / 5.7 / .8 / .8 / 1.1 and .8 threes and 1.3 TO in just 20 mpg It really is mind boggling. His advanced stats are through the roof, he's their most impactful player, he has their best per minute stats, and yet Casey is the only thing standin

  38. Hiura's BABIP should come down there's plenty of reason to believe his K% will also come down to balance that out some. Further, part of that BABIP discrepancy can be explained by Statcast numbers: Albies avg exit velocity: 88.8mph (145th in baseball) Hiura avg exit velocity: 91.4mpg (22nd in baseball) Albis barrel %: 6.6% (242nd in baseball) Hiura barrel %: 13.9% (29th in baseball) In Hiura's rookie season he hit for a higher average (.303 to .295 AVG), got on base more (.368 to .352 OBP), and hit for a lot more power (.570 to .500 SLG) than Albies.

  41. Once you make the playoffs, anything can happen in a short series. The current world champs a Josh Hader from not even being in the NLDS. Either blow it up or give it one last go. Trading Mookie and NOT also selling Xander for actual impact prospects is just treading water. Xander will be past his opt out date by the time Boston can put something together that is better then their current roster with mookie.

  42. Those four combined don't have the upside of MRob. I don't see why the Warriors would make the trade for anyone else on the team. Knicks are hopeless. They'll probably wager the future for DLo and Drummond.

  43. Not such a headache for teams punting FG% and TO's. He's been top-50 the past month if punting these cats, so I'd suggest finding that team in your league (i.e. the one that drafted Harden), and checking their interest level if you're ready to move on from DG. I can't fathom why you would want to flat out drop him in competitive 12+ team leagues.

  44. I think you have to go Albies > Hiura in a dynasty. Albies has 1630 MLB ABs under his belt with a clean 16.2% K%. His BABIP over this period is low at .307. He's hit .279/.332 which has room to grow. Hiura has a mere 348 MLB ABs with a terrible 30.7% K%. His BABIP is unsustainable at .402. He's hit .303/.368 which should come down to earth. They are the same age. Whether or not they had similar prospect profiles, Albies has consistently shown his ability against MLB pitching while Hiura has not.
