  1. Got it. I understand and respect your point.


    He still had really good numbers last year. Seems like you are assuming 2nd half was the start of the end. I dont necessarily agree with that. I think the risk of Blackmon not producing is lower than for example the risk of Clevinger and Glasnow getting injured.

    I saw your response and dont disagree with it. He has a very good offense already so he could just go SP all the way. I dont like the options he has to go that early. Also,  I just dont like to do that so early on the draft. I try to keep a “best player available” mentality early then fill in the holes. My preference.

    Gore doesn't pitch for Detroit, the question was Garcia or Skubal. 

    There’s another Deivi that pitches for Detroit? I provided other names as potential SP keepers to target which I thought could help him. You submit your replies, dont worry about what I post in a thread that’s not yours.

    Not sure all the Blackmon love?

    He was terrible 3nd half 




    He has been one of the most consistent OFs in the game for the past 3-4 years. Plus, one of the few guys these days that provides power with good avg/obp. Even with the “terrible” 2nd half, he still put up very good numbers. Im not super high on him, but I think he is without a doubt the best player and lowest risk right now of the group provided. From my perspective its all about risk and proven consistent performance. If you take that away, then it would be extremely easy for me. I would go Glasnow, Robert (then Clevinger) first without a doubt since Glasnow could be the next Degrom and Robert could be the next Trout. Perhaps he can afford more risk since he has a really good offensive core. Maybe....

    That would be nice, however I have 2nd 9th and 12th picks and I highly assume all those guys won't all be there at 9 and 12.  One guy has 5th and 6th picks and ZERO SP kept.  1st overall is going to take SP.  I think it will be SP heavy round 1.  

    Top 10 Yahoo ranked pitchers that I could probably get in some combination at 9 and 12 = Castillo, Giolito, Darvish, Syndergaard, Clevinger, Glasnow, Greinke, Berrios, Bauer, Woodruff,


    Ok, then I would go:




    Like I said, I like Robert a lot but you already have 2 stud OFs. If you think Robert might get to you later, then go Abreu.

  5. Update. Im pretty sure Im going to go with Cole, Bregman, Mondesi and marte as 4 of 5 keepers.

    For the 5th, decision is between Degrom in Rd 2 and Bieber in Rd 9. The way my league treats SP, its almost certain that Degrom wont make it to Rd 2 in the draft. I think he’ll be picked between 5-8 in Rd 1. 

    So the questions and arguments/justification Im struggling with are:

    1. Is having a monster 1-2 punch at SP with Degrom and Cole (high K, QS, K/9, etc) worth not having a pick on Rd 2.

    2. I believe there’s a significant difference between Degrom and bieber, but is it or will be enough to justify and outvalue the earlier pick?

    3. I like Bieber, and him pitching well last yeast wasnt really a surprise for me. However, Dominating the way he did was. Is he going to continue that or regress a bit?

    Im very close to a decision and wanted to throw this out there for discussion. Thanks again. I WHIR if you need help. 

  6. I like Robert a lot and he is ready to roll. I think thats a good trade for you right now. Honestly, cant go wrong with either. Probably the best two all around talents.

    The Mondesi trade really depends on your roster and strategy in that league. I think its a good trade buying low on Stanton, but you’ll need to build the rest with pretty good avg/obp guys to balance Stanton. If healthy, I think he’ll hit 40-50 as a yankee. Plus, Mondesi doesnt come without risk either. It was frustrating owning him last year.

    In H2H SB‘s aren’t really worth much, even in a cats league. If you have a player who helps in every category and also does in SB‘s then sure, but not if his only real value is SB‘s. Starting pitching is key in H2H.


    Cole, DeGrom, Bieber are locks.  Bregman too. That leaves you with Olson, Ryu, Mondesi, Marte. Ryu is too injury prone and is a major problem in a H2H league due to this. His fastball velocity is on decline too. Mondesi is mostly worthless (see what I wrote above). That leaves you with Olson and Marte. Olson has terrible contact but has elite power, Marte peaked last year but us solid all-around. I‘d base this on round value and just go with Marte.


    Thanks for the help. I was actually thinking Mondesi provides multi cat help in R, 3B, SB and also some power. Maybe I need to go back and re-assess. But I see what you mean about the SB value in H2H. Thx again.

    Alvarez and it’s not even close.

    Not even close? Rendon, they guy that has put up MVP type numbers in the last two seasons and is one of the best hitters in the game? Not sure we are talking about the same player. Yes, theres a risk numbers will go down in LAA, but he will still hit. Theres also a risk that alvarez numbers will go down is his sophmore year. Or that he might not hit without knowing what’s coming. ;)

    Bogaerts, Glasnow, Meadows, McNeil, Chapman, and Muncy. Great value for the rounds.

    I would do this as well, but swapping Mcneil for Luis Castillo. IMO Castillo is a stud and great value in Rd 9 and Cincy should be a lot better this year.
