  1. Interestingly enough, he performed far better against RHP than LHP in 2019.
  2. I'm in the minority, but Steve Blass kinda annoys me on broadcasts. Respect Steve and his longevity and loyalty, but I'm looking forward to Walk or Wehner on every broadcast from now on. As for the Pirates warning signs, it's not a matter of not having what it takes - they do, as evidence by their 3 straight playoff appearances in the mid-2010s - they simply don't want to. Huntington's Archer deal will go down as one of the biggest whiffs in MLB history and now he is also a fool for not trading vasquez, but he did compile some good teams a handful of years back that turned the corner. Even
  3. I've had 3 weeks in two years with an OBP under .331. Naturally, one of them was last week (.309). *SIGH* On to the 3rd place matchup
  4. So Kyle Gibson is opening now? Sweeeeeeeeeet, wish I realized that before adding him at 3 AM this morning
  5. Fair point. He's played 26 games, here are the 13 vs 13 splits: 1st 13: .333/.451/.524, 9R, 3 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 5 BRI, 1 NSB, 23.5% k rate, 11.8% BB rate, .448 BaBIP, .190 ISO 2nd 13: .292/.393/.500, 9R, 1 2B, 0 3B, 3 HR, 10 RBI, 0 NSB, 26.8% k rate, 12.5% BB rate, .367 BaBIP, .208 ISO Overall not too bad, but certainly a dip in some spots. Additionally, he's benefited a great deal from luck with a .407 BaBIP vs a 20.6% LD rate and a whopping 60.3% Med contact. The 25.5% k rate is also a bit worrisome, but that's not atypical of rookies in general. Still a guy
  6. Not overly impressive thus far. Also, just a 7.86 k/9, .258 BaBIP, and a 5.09 xFIP at AAA this year. Dude is a ticking timebomb imo.
  7. Buccos should have sold him at the deadline anyway. Another fudge up by Neil Huntington. Enjoy your cell Filipe, changing your name won't help you now.
  8. Funny how the juiced ball ERA has changed our outlook as I think many will agree that Chapman is a bit disappointing despite 34 homers. Agree with you on Solak with a caveat that he is probably closer to a must-own in dynasty formats, but not so much redrafts.
  9. Other than the occasional frustration with the lack of prospects in the data base (and somewhat limited ability to customize), Yahoo is way better than ESPN IMO. Fantrax is the most customizable and has the most players, but app sucks IMO and is basically a hyperlink to the website (OSB explains it above, just not my cup of tea). I ride-or-die with the Y!
  10. Not all of these guys are outside the top 100 and some could even pop up to the Show in 2020, but some less talked-about names that might be good bargains right now: OF Trevor Larnach - Min OF Julio Rodriguez - Sea 1B Grant Levigne - Col OF Travis Swaggerty - Pit 1B/3B Triston Casas - Bos OF Kyle Isbel - KC OF Lewin Diaz - Mia SP Kris Bubic - KC SP Jacob Heatherly - Cle SP Brailyn Marquez - Chc SP Edward Cabrera - Mia SP Ethan Hankins - Cle SP Quinn Priester - Pit
  11. Yankee guys, any chance he gets 1 more appearance at 1B and/or OF this season? His value is great as it is, but skyrockets in my league if he can be 1B, 3B, SS, and OF eligible.
  12. 4th division title in 6 years in my dynasty. Feeling fresh off the bye week, ready for the Division Championship/League Semis. Need the boys to step up for Yelich. BOL everyone, been a pleasure talkin shop with yous this year.
  13. @osb_tensor and by "you" i don't mean YOU specifically, just folks in general. Wanted to clarify that. You're right, that's his big thing, but much of the debate through 20 pages of this thread has been "is Avg/OBP enough if the counting stats aren't there?"
  14. Was just kinda going for counting stats, figured if you don't know about his elite avg/obp then you probably don't know who Jeff McNeil is to begin with.
  15. Current ranks among 2b-eligible players R - 12 H - 11 HR - T17 2b - 5 RBI - T18 Depending on depth of a particular league, he could go anywhere from 7-11th IMO. With that said, I've never been great at projecting ADPs, they always seem off to me.
  16. Love how injured players don't get put on the DL in September. Makes managing a dynasty roster soooo wonderful 😑
  17. FYI, shelved for the rest of the season. Great debut year for the kid. "The Mariners are shutting down RHP prospect Logan Gilbert for the remainder of the 2019 season. Advice: Gilbert was able to throw 135 innings in his first professional season, and to say it went well is an understatement. The 22-year-old posted a 2.13 ERA at three different levels -- 2.88 once promoted to the Texas League -- and he whiffed 165 hitters against 33 walks. Gilbert is the top pitching prospect in the Seattle system, and has a strong chance of making several starts for the Mariners before 2020 comes to a
  18. Your 1 through 7, regardless of order, are pretty much the consensus. It gets foggy after that.
  19. There is no reason, short term or long term, for Boston to be trotting Brock Holt out their daily, so I assume Chavis will be in the lineup. Might get more off days down the stretch though (shoulder).
  20. Depends on your league format and weekly situation. If you're already punting ERA and WHIP, heck yeah he's useful. If you're in a tight matchup, I'm not risking it. Better 2020 outlook than 2019 playoff stretch IMO.
  21. Set to return from the IL (infection). Hasn't pitched since July 31, but saying he's set to rejoin the rotation. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbssports.com/fantasy/baseball/news/marlins-edward-cabrera-back-from-il/amp/
  22. Trying to project ahead, looks like a tough next 4 matchups. Cards, Stros, Cubs, Cards
  23. Congrats to the kid getting his first knock. Gotta be a big monkey off his back. Excited to see how he performs tonight/going forward.
  24. What a rush it must be for Nick Solak making his major league debut in front of hundreds of fans this afternoon.
  25. Potentially getting the call for a start Saturday (8/17). 6'2", 220 Born: 11/18/96 From 2080 Prospects: Large frame, wide and muscular build, durable look. Abbreviated semi-windup, starts side-saddle; effort throughout, heavy tilt to clear arm, backside swings around hard and pulls off-line after release. Hooked arm-circle, inverted-w, recoil after 3/4 slot. MLB ETA Present Role Future Role Role Description Risk 2020
