  1. I completely understand your stance on this and you may be correct. I set the SB at 20 due to team context. I tend to think the Reds will run more then the Dodgers. Let’s say he doesn’t hit 20 and gets 12, I’m still super stoked to get him at 75.
  2. I agree. However, is you set a baseline of .275/25/80/88/20 he is well worth it. I think he can exceed those numbers though.
  3. Guys let’s not go crazy looking at ST velocity. Are we slow learners? How many times have we all been freaking out cause Greinke was only throwing 88-89 in spring. Remember, pitchers all ramp up differently. If a player is still 1-2 mph slower in mid April then I’m concerned. Until then, velocity doesn’t matter IMO.
  4. Absolutely, I took him at 75 last week and felt like I got a steal. He’s easily a top 50 player this season IMO.
  5. I don’t use any draft software outside of excel. They are all just projection/ADP based and will give you a mid level team.
  6. This is exactly what we were expecting. Would you really want him coming back before that?
  7. I like it but instead of taking a couple fliers you really shoud've loaded up on impact relievers. Doing that would really help your ERA and WHIP.
  8. I took him as an SP3. Even if the numbers are like they were in the 2nd half that’s fine for the price you are paying this year.
  9. I took him at 58 yesterday. Didn't love it but the pitchers flew off. I figured it was work the risk, there was a massive cliff after him.
  10. I have to agree with this. I was really scared off due to elbow injuries that past couple of years. I got him a 9/104 this year and couldn't be happier.
  11. Moving the mound back 2 feet is one of the dumbest ideas I've heard. I am in favor of a 3 batter min for pitchers. I'm also not a big fan of the shift. There should be some sort of limitation on that.
  12. I tend to lean toward The Bat. Carty seems to be on top of it when talking about the data he uses for the model.
  13. According to Jeff Zimmerman he was at 90 in the 3rd. Don't have the totals though. This isn't all that surprising. However, in his previous starts this spring he's been 91-93, which is a slight tick up from last year at this time, so that's a little encouraging. Remember, he's never been a high velo guy.
  14. This actually makes a lot of sense after your explanation. Thank you for clarifying. One of the things I struggle with each year running a points league is to limit giving an advantage to players that stream and have the scoring for pitching and hitting equal. I noticed most of the league streamed catchers last season, we all know how weak that position is. Especially in a points format where they rarely play 130 games. So, this season I removed the position and added a extra utility spot. I will highly consider your point format next season. We are in the middle of our draft
  15. I was all in till I saw daily lineup changes. How do you prevent streaming in this league?
  16. Should not have the option to vote on trades. Just have commish rule on all trades. The only trades that should ever be vetoed are in the case of collusion or tanking. The option to vote just creates controversy.
  17. Two years ago the same was thought about Ramirez. He was a super late pick who nobody though would be great. It's pretty obvious you are missing he point here.
  18. Rizzo Rendon Correa Torres This is for both Categories and Points format.
  19. Easiest keeper of the year. This is Baez no question. Sanchez is trash in a points format.
  20. We need more context on the league. Is it points or Categories and what categories/point system. Also is there draft implications for your keeper. I would also suggest provide a few you are looking at not your whole 40 man roster.
  21. This year for me it means really focusing in on middle to late inning guys with power arms. Who has a chance for 100K in 70-80 innings type guys. I'm going after a couple closers this season but not early in the draft. It's such a volatile position I'm not willing to waste a bunch of draft capital on it. The closer landscape will look drastically different in June or July then it does right now. I feel like quality middle to late relievers can help a ton in K's, Whip and ERA. They can even provide a couple wins or saves. This is how I'm approaching it after my first couple
  22. My point is they are all fine and it really doesn't matter what order they are taken in. As fantasy players there is way too much group think on players at times. Any idea that is outside of the group is considered wrong. Which I don't agree with. You don't have to follow a Fantasy pros ranking sheet to build a winning team. You can take any of the players inside of top 20 ahead of Ramierez and build a winning team. That's my point.
  23. For me its just a matter of several other players I like better. I think he's a fine player but do have concerns about the offense. I don't think it's nearly the offense we've seen in the past. Which could limit his at bats. Don't get me wrong he's fantastic. I just like Martinez, Scherzer, Judge, Aernado, Bregman, Acuna, Stanton and DeGrom more. However, everyone in the top 20 are fantastic picks no matter where you get them. As far as falling off in the 2nd half, we just don't know yet. The sample size is too small. We really only have two seasons of full time AB's. In 2
