    Corey Seager's ADP by year:

    2018  25

    2019  71

    2020  150

    2021  33

    I find it interesting that Seager's ADP varies so much year to year and I'm not sure given his injury history, the lack of steals, and the depth at shortstop that he justifies a pick in the top 3 rounds. I thought the fantasy community had him way undervalued last year which is why I started his thread, but I think they're overvaluing him this year without properly baking in his injury risk. I'm not sure where I'll be on Seager on draft day, but I'm guessing I'll end up fading him this year at that price.

    Looks like I’ll be back in on him next year when his ADP is over 100 again.

    As a fan of a team who could play the Rays in the playoffs, I say "hell nooooo".

    Great move though!

    Your move, Chicago. I really like Chicago’s chances this year but I hope they decide to be aggressive at the deadline. Fun fact: I’ve correctly bet decent sums of money on the World Series winners the last 2 years. This year I’ve put my money on the White Sox. I’d love to see them pick up a good outfielder (Starling Marte?) and a good 2nd baseman (Story, Escobar, or Frazier).

    Do we think the Cruz trade effects his playing time at all?

    Yes, unfortunately. He’s got a 68 wRC+ vs lefties this season (146 vs righties) so he’ll probably sit more against lefties. With the way Tampa operates though, even in those games he’ll still end up getting an at bat or two coming in off the bench when the starter is removed. Assuming it pans out that way I don’t think it’ll be a huge hit to his value since he really hasn’t done much anyway against lefties.

    Next week too far? LOL
    I always do some preliminary schedule for pitchers of interest after teams set their rotations after the AS break.
    It rarely holds up, but at least I can see whats coming up.
    Webb unfortunatelly lost his start vs PIT on Sunday, because of the emergency start last friday, so this is what comes:

    Looks scary.

    I manage 13 teams. My apologies for not running a pitching planner for all 100 pitchers I roster.

    Anybody rolling him out there at the Dodgers tonight?  I know that I usually say, "Start them if you have them" or "Why roster them if you are going to sit them", but in this case, I am actually ahead in ERA/WHIP for the week and I kind of like to keep it that way...  Though he is cutting into that with some pitchers now and we are tied in wins...

    He’s on my bench for sure. The ball has been flying out of that stadium the last couple days and with a pitch count I just don’t see the upside. Hoping for a good outing so I can comfortably roll him out in a two start week next week.

    there are some disgusting scores around the league tonight damn

    I don’t know what the data says but to my eyes home runs and scoring are way up since the all star break. My complete lack of trust in Manfred and how MLB operates is making me think they changed the ball again (I’m not normally a conspiracy guy).

    Eloy is immensely talented, but does anyone really think he can come back this month, and then make it through the rest of the season without getting hurt? I'm just not seeing it. Could be one the dirtiest feeling "sell highs" of the year

    All of his injuries (at least that I found in a quick google search) have come playing the field. LaRussa has already hinted at playing him at DH so if he follows through with that it’ll greatly reduce his injury risk. It’s not like Eloy is some elite defender. Putting him in the OF when the team has a great shot at a World Series ring would be one of the dumbest things possible. Go get Gallo or Starling Marte, put Eloy at DH and go get that ring.

    Huh?  He was 1 for 2 with a walk in the first game.  .667 OBP for the day.  And against Ryu.  I'll take that any day.  Unfortunately it appears he is sitting out the second game as you wished which is a shame.

    He had a 2.08 ERA and a .088 WHIP for the year so far.  He improved upon it today.  I'll take that any day too.  Wish I could get him for my other two teams.  if he falls off the cliff well I have already gotten some great starts from him so why shouldn't I own him until then.  But "then" hasn't happened yet.

    What are your projections for him rest of season?
