  1. He's the kind of guy that can help you win a championship, especially in big leagues or AL only leagues. He's not the stud that propels you over the top. But he's the vanilla guy you get with a good adp that has a low cieling but a high floor. He's Melky Cabrerra all over again. Plug him in , get above average production. Use earlier draft picks on high ceiling guys.
  2. Spring training stats mean nothing. having said that I took a flier on him with my last pick in an AL only draft. Hes currently behind Cruz and Healy for significant playing time. If either of them gets hurt or just plain sucks then yes, he will get his chance. Thinking Cruz is due for injury this year is not necessarily bad strategy (i'm not wishing an injury on the guy, but only recently has he been able to string a few seasons without injury together. Plus I believe he is 38 this year).
  3. 1 game in and all the I told you so's have come out of the woodwork. Two thoughts A) there are 15 more games and b ) BB can't be happy with how the offense performed last night. As I took Burkhead with the very last pick in my draft I can be a bit more patient.
  4. Picked him up as my WR4 /Flex player and frankly I couldn't be happier. He's on the bubble but I'm hoping an improved run game will take pressure of Bortles and lead to more consistent success for Robinson. There's enough upside in Robinson to draft him at his ADP. Our league was so sour on him I got him in the 6th round. That's seems a bit crazy to me.
  5. I sincerely hope the Jets front office isn't as inept as the Browns. I also hope you aren't insinuating that Forte is as inept as Osweiller. Of course Forte is not the future of the Jets. The Jets have no future. If it was me, I would play Forte till he either breaks or shows enough that teams desperate for a real running back (ie philly, baltimore, packers, lions) will take on his contract.
  6. If i'm not mistaken Eddie Lacy's last good season was 2014.
  7. Not sure why this year will be different from last year. Henry looked just as good in the preseason last year as he does this year. Washed up at 29? Seems unlikely.
  8. Forte is not getting cut. If they are paying him 4 million either way (cutting him does not take anything off of the cap) then they will keep him. He might get traded basically for nothing to dump his contract but he's not getting cut AND if he's not getting cut he's starting until he breaks. Why? I'll give you 4 million reasons why.
  9. Toronto is a hitters park. (As are most of the AL east. )
  10. I'm pretty sure this has no impact on his call up date.
  11. Is this guy likely the first callup for the White Sox? Has anyone been following him in the minors?
  12. Never, ever underestimate Don Cooper.
  13. So what you're saying is: he hits the ball really really hard.
  14. It baffles me that people are arguing so passionately against this guy. Should Byron Buxton be the cornerstone of your outfield? Obviously no. But his talent really is quite obvious and at age 23 you have to expect growing pains. The last two weeks are just a taste of what he can do. In a keeper league or on a well drafted team with room on the bench you should wait for a project like Buxton to come to fruition . This guy is a steal.
  15. He'll be up May 17th. Grab him now if you can.
  16. I own him an al only keeper league. It would take a kings ransom to get him away from me. Having said that, he is going to slump and slump HARD this year. I wonder what people will say then.
  17. 4-13, RBI, 5 R, 2 SB, 7 BB, 2 KO That was his statline last week. Not much power there but that's not bad for of3 status in my al only league. So it tells me he's calming down. The optimist in me says expect a couple of doubles this week, maybe even a dinger. The deranged optimist in me says once he hits that dinger the llood gates will open. If i was in a mixed keeper league, there's almost no way I would start him, but equally, i would hang onto him. This guy has a pulse and it seems to be getting stronger.
  18. Not only do I still own him. I'm throwing him out there this week and benching Alex Gordon.
  19. He saw 35 pitches tonight. I would have to think a night like this would open up his managers eyes to the possibilities.
  20. Lol, yeah the perils of a 12 team al only league. It is my 4th pitcher slot, so I've got that going for me. But you are right, I need to scour the waver wire for the diamond in the rough.
