  1. http://www.twincities.com/2016/06/23/twins-first-rounder-signs-will-start-at-elizabethton/ He skipped the gulf coast league
  2. Don't wanna jump the gun here, cause it's an 18 year old with 6 games and 25 PA...but this guy flat looks like he can hit. 12.0 k% in the small sample, batting .391. Extreme small sample obviously...but I got more to suggest he can hit. This is a total puff piece, but I found this interesting: http://m.mlb.com/news/article/177437424/home-schooled-alex-kirilloff-a-top-draft-pick/ Not really surprising IMO that he's hitting already as an 18 year old...his whole life he's been playing vs. older competition. 18...looks like he has a good
  3. Did some digging on both Hoskins and Cozens. Apparently the home stadium in Reading is "a launching pad." The GM of the Phillies even questioned whether power numbers are legit from players there. look up the home/road splits, it is drastic.
  4. Realized I sound like a broken record, but this dude really needs to be owned in most dynasty formats.
  5. all star game MVP http://www.baseballamerica.com/minors/jimenez-puts-charge-midwest-league-star-game/#HOuwIEGIi63TIQ5I.97 he's 19...almost guarantee he will be on midseason t50 lists...
  6. Jose Altuve was an undrafted free agent.
  7. I'm with you. I love finding under the radar guys. Baseball Prospectus can splooge over guys who are overrated as hell for fantasy while I'll find under the radar guys like Willie.
  8. Michael Halpern at Imaginary Brick Wall does fantasy rankings Willie was #43 in the preseason. This guy is legit, hit on Harrison Bader too. One of my friends from /r/fantasybaseball. http://www.imaginarybrickwall.com/2016-top-100-fantasy-baseball-prospect-rankings-1-100/
  9. His upside might be just as high or even higher than Cody Reed's. Reds have so many pitching prospects, it is nuts. Sucks for Iglesias owners though, who would have thought he'd head to the pen?
  10. We're still running ESPN, but we have a sweet spreadsheet that people can individually edit. A lot of work went into the tech specifics of getting the spreadsheet working the way it is right now, even has an add/drop transaction log. I tried fantrax a while ago and hated it. But I did hear they've improved the ui/ux a ton. We're on the fence about moving, probably won't just because how good the spreadsheet is and how familiar people are with ESPN. How is fantrax with foreign players? For example, do they have Shohei Otani, Shintaro Fujinami, Lourdes Gourriel Jr., Kevin
  11. think this is why you gotta use a spreadsheet or fantrax, personally. site limitations suck
  12. Don't expect them to translate to MLB steals. Anything he gives you there is gravy.
  13. hm...may be worth tweeting him for clarification...
  14. Man though, really seems like the Phillies have some nice pieces. The rebuild might be faster than anyone thought. BTW didn't mean to throw shade at Hoskins or sound antagonistic. I might have to find room for Hoskins too. It's just tough to find room for all these upside/fringe prospects!
  15. Good for Hoskins. Doesn't change my opinion. Cozens is likely going to move from OF to 1B so I see the two as direct adversaries. I like Hoskins FWIW, just think Cozens has a bit more pedigree and better power stats so far. Also has a couple inches and some lbs on him, though both players are huge. Both are good spec adds IMO, I just don't have room to add both.
  16. Hoskins is interesting, but I think Cozens has the higher upside right now.
  17. I have a feeling that he will be a 1B/OF type. Remember ages ago I owned Adam Duvall in dynasty and let him get away. In OBP/SLG so I might as well keep the big power. This guy could be a 30+ HR masher easy.
  18. Kid is going to get some serious hype, SOON. Echoing your sentiment, still available in a lot of leagues, get in before others do, because he's gonna be on the BA hotsheet/BP chats/etc. Will be buzzing.
  19. We do something similar, except that everyone in the league can edit the spreadsheet themselves, but only as to their own specific section of the spreadsheet. It's some hi tech stuff, gotta give my commissioner credit for setting it all up. You can get a look here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/14WvdSaZHPTRAbZwcptSMtV-LmZjDdUPbad7u9OqUB6I/edit#gid=650188109 Best thing is you can add Japanese guys, anyone you want. I'm sitting on Maitan and Otani right now. Love not being limited by a player pool.
  20. natural athlete, former bball player at St. John's, limited miles on his arm, getting better every year, already a t75 prospect and improving. lot to like here. Cincy is stacked with arms but I think Garrett will force the issue sooner or later.
  21. dodgers plan to give him every opportunity to stay at 2b...
  22. He's been well below average this year, but in 2014 and 2015 he was above average Wow, you're right. His wOBA in 2014 was .329 and in 2015 it was .318. League average wOBA was .310 in 2014, .313 in 2015, and .316 so far in 2016. http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?pos=all&stats=bat&lg=all&qual=0&type=c,3,4,6,12,11,13,21,22,-1,23,37,38,39,-1,34,35,110,-1,50,61,40,-1,41,47,-1,102,106,-1,45,44,43,-1,209,210,211,-1,46,48,-1,58&season=2016&month=0&season1=2016&ind=0&team=0,ss&rost=0&age=0&filter=&players=0
  23. Offtopic -- Matt bush went from SS to RP now. Wonder if he will ever get a chance at SP. Mitch Moreland was the most impressive position player I've seen pitch in the majors, I think. http://m.mlb.com/news/article/74619336/rangers-mitch-moreland-debuts-as-pitcher-in-lopsided-loss On topic -- In any case, I don't think Otani will actually DH. Clubs baby pitchers with pitch counts, I don't see any club accepting the extra risk of injury from extra ABs when it's unlikely he'll be above DH replacement level anyways. He'd have to be REALLY good for a club to consider it part time. Even Madbum
  24. great read http://2080baseball.com/2016/05/shohei-otani-and-the-cultural-depth-of-amateur-baseball-in-japan/ Dave Defreitas scouted for the Cleveland Indians a few years ago, was stationed overseas in Japan. Has good knowledge and ties. Seems to think Otani could be here by 2018.
