  1. Per RW, it sounds like they will also try him in the Spring at 3B and OF. If he could have position eligibility at 2B/SS/3B/OF (plus CI and MI if your league has those designations) that would be huge!
  2. Good point. However, IF Cole and/or Stras end up in the AL East, then while still not as strong as the NL East they do have some pretty good arms there too (Snell, Morton, Severino, Sale).
  3. Barring an injury, or position conversion, the addition of Villar likely means Diaz is either a bench bat or back in the minors next year.
  4. I guess Isan Diaz is now on the outside looking in for a roster spot. My belief is that Villar will still be plenty valuable. In that diamond, he can surely take advantage of his speed. Not sure if Mattingly is a guy that usually gives his guys the green light. Any Marlins fans know? Given the O's lineup was rather terrible, I can't imagine he won't put up similar runs but the RBIs and HRs will decline, imo. but his other stats should remain relatively the same.
  5. Hopefully there will be more clarity later this afternoon. If he is a true GTD then with the late game and lineups locking, it's unfortunate that folks will have to make a decision to either ride with him or bench him not knowing.
  6. I'm saying that a lot of (fantasy) prospect sites have Vaughan ahead of pretty much all of them regardless 5 cat v. 4 cat. For sure, it would seem that there are some that think otherwise, that's all. haha.
  7. Since this was a draft of prospect mavens, gives a good sense of how guys are viewed, imo. A bit surprised to see Vaughan fall to #26, which is after CJ Abrams (obviously someone is a big believer) and also Bobby Witt.
  8. Yes, I suspect he will go very high in most drafts.
  9. What do you think the plan is with Andujar? Seems like Urshela has firmly planted himself in the Yanks long-term plans.
  10. Hats off to J-Ram, what a competitor. Silencing those that were worrying about a return of his power.
  11. That's why the question was asked, haha. It is difficult, so I'm interested in hearing from those that have any insight to which may have a more sustainable profile.
  12. I think that's a bit much. It depends on how your team is composed, imo. If you have a ton of power guys, but lower average types then pro-rating his numbers, even with some regression, would be more than adequate for 3B.
  13. Hendricks may be a good comp, but so far he's shown the ability to strike guys out at a higher rate.
  14. I agree. It is completely bizarre. Lowe's bat deserves to be in the lineup everyday. TBay and their analytics perhaps? I have no clue, but if that's all it is, then they are outsmarting themselves. Kid looks like a guy that they could really use.
  15. Agree absolutely. Posted about him in "Deep Sleepers" earlier this year. He was a two-sport athlete, who had not committed to playing baseball full-time until recently. Taking that into account, it makes his year even more impressive, imo, in a pitcher-friendly league. Unfortunate that he got injured a couple times that put him on the IL, otherwise, I would have expected him making a jump onto most Top 100 lists (had he played and performed over the full season). I would still anticipate he will get on some lists, but he may be still a bit of a sleeper for some leagues going into next yea
  16. He will be called up, presuming starter with a limited workload/pitch count.
  17. I agree. I don't think we can just discount the K rate. Look, he just past Rhys Hoskins for the fastest HR start in league history. That's super impressive and it should reinforce the power is real. But we should remember how Rhys Hoskins came out of the gate and it is a good reminder when looking at him now in terms of where is average may go. Does it mean that Aquino's average will drop dramatically like Hoskins? No. But it does serve food for thought and there will be some regression, it's just a matter of where you believe his average will wind up on the spectrum.
  18. 3-5 with another HR. It's getting tougher to not see this kid as being the real deal. Again, I don't think he's hitting .300 next year but I also don't think he's going to be Joc Pederson. Will be interesting to see how he finishes out the year.
  19. Don't see how Lux is not called up if Muncy is down for a prolonged period. How much he plays though remains to be seen.
  20. Max pulled due to injury or just ineffectiveness?
  21. Really struggle with his profile. The power is great, but the K's are super concerning. Yes, he's young but the bat has to play because he really is only a 1B type. Now one important thing to consider is if the NL goes the DH route, he fits the mold and it would seem to be something the League is considering but may take a year or two to implement. That would likely coincide with Martin's ETA to the majors.
