  1. That's not a real strong strategy, imo. I agree, power is becoming easier, but that doesn't mean you should just ignore him. It just means that you will need a higher average/speed in other position categories. Point being, I understand the logic but I still think it depends on the price you are paying for same.
  2. Did Lowe play enough OF to qualify in Yahoo? I see him listed as a 2B on his Yahoo page, but I don't actually see the draft area where it might list his other positions.
  3. Deivi Garcia - Yanks (they were close to promoting him last year, so I would anticipate he will be up soon) AJ Puk - A's (I'm assuming that Luzardo starts the year in the rotation. I suspect that Puk needs some further seasoning, but if he hits the ground running the A's won't hesitate to bring him up) Carter Kieboom - Nats (depending on whether or not he has a job out of ST, if he goes down, I would anticipate he would be one of the first guys called up if injury/performance dictate it) Jazz Chisholm - Marlins (He might need more time in the minors, but a hot start coupled by
  4. Agree on Pearson, though the Jays will likely use service time, so mark whatever day it lapses.
  5. I'm with this post. Obviously he is talented, but at this point what are you paying for? I'd rather have a guy that has a better track record, even at less upside, over Senzel. Until he proves he can stay healthy, I am not a buyer. As someone who has a parent with vertigo, it is not something that necessarily just goes away. Caveat emptor.
  6. I hope he gets 500+ABs this year. IF so, I think he has a chance to lead the AL in home runs.
  7. All hope is not lost. Injuries, the need to rest guys, etc., may end up leading to him getting time there in any event. Let's first let him crack the lineup and start producing before worrying too much about everything else.
  8. That's a good point on Zimmerman, great mentor to have there. Cabrera also gets high marks, from ex-teammates, for his leadership too, and also having Kendrick. He is well positioned to learn from some really great leaders.
  9. Hopefully he lights it up in spring training and makes their decision that much more difficult.
  10. Solak was pretty good last year and has a lot of versatility. Wondering though with the off-season moves, and possibly Castellanos going to the Rangers if there is any path to a full-time gig. Curious in people's thoughts, and specifically any Rangers' fans that have a sense of what his role may be in 2020.
  11. Is there a path to playing time in TBay? Pham is gone. I suspect they will use Martinez in a variety of roles, as I would have thought the international guy they signed would mostly be playing first base but maybe Martinez will platoon there. He is apparently awful defensively in the OF. Hoping Randy gets hot in the Spring.
  12. What's the upside with both the bat and the arm, assuming someone wants him as a pitcher/dual role?
  13. @brockpapersizer what kind of numbers (5x5 format) are you thinking for Sean Murphy this year, assuming he plays 120-130 games?
  14. Another important factor is where they intend to bat him in the lineup, far more valuable to be in the top 5 in the order versus bottom 3 or something in that range, imo.
  15. Thanks Tony. As a Mercado owner, this has me feeling much better. I suspect that Mercado may play both CF and RF and that Reyes will DH almost exclusively.
  16. Clase isn't the issue. It's Deshields! You have Mercado, what the hell do you need him for?
  17. But why did they deal for Deshields when they have Mercado? The deal doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
  18. Wondering what the Deshields trade means for OM. Was really surprised they dealt for Deshields given that Mercado was really good and seems to be a solid defender. What do you guys think the trade means to his value?
  19. Unfortunate. I liked him as a rebound candidate. Would still draft him, but will be moving him down my list with his home park.
  20. +1 for Yahoo. Alternatively, if in a very deep league with many prospects, I would recommend Fantrax.
  21. Having been a Pham owner the past few years, I agree with this. I've found the same with Starling Marte. That said, if you can get 135-145 games out of Pham his stats more then make up for it. It's more a concern in 'weekly' lineups then daily where you can sub him out, imo. That SD lineup is looking pretty good right now, with a full season of Tatis Jr., Machado more comfortable in the NL and Hosmer's OBP, I think Pham can put up just as good numbers (and possibly even better counting stats).
  22. Meh. Sure more homers, but a better average on the road by quite a margin, so not sure the home park was 'that' favourable overall. Also, no homers in Yankee Stadium or Fenway. The Marlins just moved in their fences, which is not insignificant. Also, Cole just got added to the AL East, but I agree there's still probably more talented pitching in the NL East. Overall, maybe a slight downgrade but I see it more or less as a wash.
  23. Part of the argument in favour of the move is that, outside of LA, that division's pitching is not very good or at least is comparable. The Padres, arguably, have the best staff after the Dodgers, so looking at the Rockies, Giants (sans Bumgarner) and DBacks is not overly intimidating.
  24. I tend to agree. Now, if he can pull that average up to .260 with 40+ hrs hitting 4-5th in that lineup (hopefully with Lindor in it) then he becomes a real bargain in the likely rounds he'll be going.
  25. Rays moved him around a bit in the lineup, all things being equal with the Pads present lineup as being the one that opens the 2020 season, where do you think he will bat in the order?
