  1. Hats off to J-Ram, what a competitor. Silencing those that were worrying about a return of his power.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Hendricks may be a good comp, but so far he's shown the ability to strike guys out at a higher rate.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. He will be called up, presuming starter with a limited workload/pitch count.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Max pulled due to injury or just ineffectiveness?
  12. 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.
  13. Funny, I was going to post a .265-.270 avg with 40HRs.
  14. What a shame. There was an open spot, but instead the Giants called-up has-been Joey Rickard.
  15. Don't think he'll get a sniff this year. Also, I think the issue with Skubal not being ranked as highly is that there is concern in his secondary pitches. I believe it was Kiley McDaniels during a recent FG chat that said that Skubal's fastball and command of it is one of the better ones in the minors, but there is concern about having a plus second pitch and likely needs to add an average to plus third offering before they will rank him higher.
  16. It usually takes time for the power to return after this type of injury. Hoping they just shut him down and he returns healthy for ST next year. While he's likely out of the discussion as a first rounder, I would be happy to land him in the 15-20 range.
  17. I have not read anything that he will miss 'weeks', but he did have an MRI and MLB.com is reporting that he 'may' land on the IL. Francona noted that they wanted more 'eyes' on the MRI results. Sounds like it might be something that sends him to the IL, but it's still not clear, and if he does, for how long remains to be seen.
  18. Any update from the broadcast on Jo-Ram?
  19. 2-4 with a double and another HR last night. That's already his 10th home run in 67ABs with his new AAA team, bringing his season total between AA-AAA to 35Hrs.
  20. Just continues to deal: 6IP, 2hits, 0ER, 7Ks
  21. He's always been a very good, not great, prospect. That said, he's also been buried in Tampa Bay with their dearth of MI talent. This year, he's been lights out and the power surge may be juiced ball related, but the kid does look like he could put up some decent numbers.
