  1. Sandy was never a guy I expected to end up all in on, yet here we are. Alcantara seems to be really growing as a pitcher. He throws 4 pitches and all are fairly effective. In 2020 his 4-seam, changeup, and sinker were above average in terms of break (both horizontal and vertical). He was a quality start machine, and he has strong fastball velocity. This feels like a guy who could just click and really start to roll through linenups. Baseball savant does this thing where they compare a player to other players based on velocity and movement. The 5 for Alcantara? 2019 Brandon Woodruff, 20
  2. Then when is it appropriate. Again, where is the cutoff? 3 runs ok? 4? 5? 6? What if they were down that many runs, etc. It's absolutely ridiculous. Make a good pitch and make him earn it if you feel so strongly about it. The pitcher grooving one is also just laying down. You're a professional, act like it. There are some things I absolutely don't like. This is far from one of them.
  3. Right, we don't know the context of all of them. I also am ignorant to the magic ratio of runs to innings left of play that allows a player to swing on 3-0. 7 runs in the 6th, swing? What about the 7th? Clearly, the 8th is a no no. What if it was just 6 runs. What if it was 4 but the leading team had the leagues best pitching and bullpen ready to mop it up... What if the team was down 8 runs? I mean, the game is out of hand, right? We don't expect the leading team to swing for more runs. Why does the team in a deficit need those runs if they are only prolonging the inevitable... Id
  4. Tatis has just turned into such a beast. Someone needs to let Woodward know there were 40 home runs hit last year in a 3-0 count, and 12 so far this year. Evidently Tatis dingers as especially offensive.
  5. Roll a pair of dice. When torn between arms like this I go with the best team context. Definitely keep Howard here.
  6. Houston fan so I hope Tucker does great. However - in a redraft league it's definitely Joc for me. Joc's a near lock for an .850 or so OPS, could definitely stay over .900. Last year was his age 27 season and it was a strong one. 160+ R+RBI, 30+ HR, and a .850+ OPS? I'd take that on my bench, plus he's possible also 1B eligible in your league which helps immensely in day to day lineups. In a keeper league, definitely Tucker. This season is too short to be riding a train powered on dreams and wishes. Tucker may not have enough time to carve out a spot and really contribute. Joc
  7. Flaherty. I also like Castillo more still, but there’s an argument for Gray right there with them. If you own gray you aren’t giving up anything of value with him for Flaherty, Castillo. Easily in the top 10, both redraft and dynasty.
  8. Not really. They should have never had the latitude to make choices like this.
  9. No use locking them in. If they leave the grounds it should be considered as opting out for the season. You want to walk about with reckless abandon, fine, but not when you jeopardize an entire clubhouse. See you in 2021.
  10. The only way the deal makes any sense at all is if you take team context into it. Even then, it's a a fairly easy no for me. Without Yelich your OF becomes pretty suspect.
  11. Too many personal jabs going back and forth. Replies hidden and thread is locked. The point was made about the quality of the trade.
  12. I don't know the finer points of it, but if a 48 game season was imposed I wouldn't be surprised to see a player strike/refusal to play.
  13. I think the opposite. With an 8-9 week regular season there isn’t a long enough season to do h2h. In a ten team league you may get to play everyone once, then no playoffs. My h2h leagues are going to do a roto style this year if it ends up being sub-60 games.
  14. Simple solution - open the books and prove it. They want everyone to just believe what they say in terms of financials relating to their clubs but won't open the books to show it.
  15. I didn't say he wouldn't be better, or anything of the sort. I said he had, by far, the lowest ceiling, and that's not really debatable. The first thing I said in my post was that I do indeed love Nico. And those #'s he posted aren't anything superlative. They are about in line with what he did in college too. Sure, arguing he may blow up just because of age is fine, but also check the age on the other 2 guys. The same argument exists - except they've actually shown a higher ceiling already.
