  1. Got him in 2 leagues.  Only regret not having him in all.

    You're right he seems a different player.  A true post hype sleeper.  The only limit will fall as to where they place him in the batting order.  Depends on how long Tatis is out for.  He could end up batting 5th or 6th.  Other than that this guy seems to have high skies.

  2. I was thinking about one Mr. Maikel Franco, in deeper leagues or for people who want to bench Sano.  

    At first glance, you might ask if the King got hit in the head or something. but he's got a nice schedule this week, Seattle and Texas.  Seattle with all it's Pitching issues, plus a few soft tossing left handers.  Plus he hit a home run last night and I think in his history, Franco likes to bunch up the Hrs.

    Are you forgetting that he had a 6.62 ERA and 1.90 WHIP last year? There’s no guarantee that his spring training rolls over into the season. I’m rostering him in the hopes that it does, but that’s far from a guarantee which is why I want to see these starts before I do. 13.2 spring training innings doesn’t erase the fact that he hasn’t been a good pitcher in a while.

    Yes, at least let this guy throw a few starts to see what he does.  He will only be picked up in the deepest leagues.  Even in Toronto.

  4. It's a very high risk stream.  I wouldn't pick up someone to stream against the Yankees. Maybe the Royals ok.  But if you're locked into a start against the Yankees you are just being cavalier.

    I looked it up and Yankees are 15th in OPS.  I wouldn't even say they are "struggling" just not up to their usual standards.

    The Royals? I know coming into the season people think they will surprise some people in the central, still not that great. I'm rolling with my man Ray. To hell with my ratios this week!

    If this was World War II, I'd love for you to be on my invasion boat.  I know you'd go in first. :)

    I think the second matchup is actually the Royals. The Yanks haven't looked all that dominant this year yet.

    Yankees are overdue I'd argue.  Also generally a patient team that can take it's walks.  Even the Royals aren't fun if that's correct.

  7. You wouldn't grab Teo for Safe batting average though.  You draft him for power and for a bit of upside with SBs.  His draft price is just right based on this.  But I'm saying writing him off after 9 games is way too soon.  As someone posted earlier, his K% is too high but his Hard hit % and other stats are top of the charts.  If you want an example of a high K% but still awesome fantasy season, look at Jorge Soler's 2019 season.  He's Jorge Soler with speed and a better hitters park and team.
