  1. My biggest fade this year is Scherzer, I owned him the last half of 2019 - he was not good, in his last 8 starts that year he had 1 Quality Start, he rocked a 5+ERA in 5 or 6 starts that September. The K rate was good last year, but so many guys K these days, I mean are we taking Robbie Ray top 6? He is a great K guy too. 2020, the ratios were pedestrian, he will turn 37 this summer and I just think there are too many questions and doubts I have about him to pay anywhere near the price tag he has gone for this draft season.
  2. As I have started to put numbers in, its different this year as I left 2019 stats on my spread then added 2020 - there are a lot of guys whose production fell, I think its pretty tough to judge off 2020, I just think in short season - slumps can kill your numbers also a lot of the peripherals you mention as well as just the fact I think to play this game you have to be 100% all in, and I just wonder how many were truly all in mentally or were some "in" but questioning how long the season would actually go, etc. I think its gonna challenge to decipher whether a down 2020 was a decline or just
  3. A lot of hitters can "rake" in high school when guys are throwing 75-80 but they cant catch up to 90+ and filthy offspeed you start to see Div I and into the professional ranks and the game continues to funnel them out, much the same way guys with live arms who throw 80+ can be pitchers in high school and be successful and they are thought to be throwing "gas", but they also dont make that next step to 90+ with command, secondary pitches etc and they dont pitch beyond HS. I was a HS coach for 11 years and I would say most years I used the DH, it was not always for the pitcher, matter of fact
  4. Thanks - the set up gave me concerns, so we ended up going back to MFL and doing the auction on Fandraft which is excellent. The fact CBS didnt seem to have clear setup options, made me concerned about what it would be and since its more expensive than MFL and Fandraft combined - was an easy decision to go back
  5. Had solid game, Im sure given ADP most would take that output each week...my one concern would be that he didnt seem to do much while the game was competitive, really racked up catches and yards when they were down and kind of garbage time, which honestly garbage time is big part of the fantasy game, but I would of liked to see him scoring more when games was more competitive, that would be my minor nit pick for week 1.
  6. If Evans is out going Lamb or Hunt, though not sure these are Hail Mary's
  7. Anyone doing CBS auctions? our league is normally a live auction keeper, but this year due to restrictions makes most sense to do auction online, we will zoom the whole group, but just too difficult to tell who got what bid etc, and CBS appears to have a live salary cap draft (assume that translates to what most would call an auction) So in trying to set some things up Im running into some challenges hoping someone might have answers - 1. League is already set up, rosters still there from last year, etc, guys need to cut down to 4 keepers - but when I go to set the auction c
  8. Will be interested to see if there is any philosophical change with regards to the C slot - not breaking any news here but Hedges is a defensive first guy, Mejia is bat first catcher - Padres if they are gonna do anything need to get their pitching going, so with that being a priority and C being a part of that equation, my hunch is that the split we saw last year in terms of starts, despite Hedges struggles at the plate will remain the same.
  9. Pretty limted appeal unless Dodgers commit not only to him in the rotation but also to letting him go. The problem with the yo yo from pen to rotation is that he is not stretched out to go that deep. If you are in a straight QS league where SP needs to go 6? Its tough as I think he only went 6+ like 2 or 3 times and most of those were early in the year. I remember a day game at Cubbies, they yanked him up like 5-0 after 4 and 2/3 and it was at that point that I knew in standard sized leagues probably needed to cut bait.
  10. Not sure if it speaks to their immense talent, the lack of impact prospects or just a trend "ranking correction" for this type of player, but to me it seems like more of the first year picks from last June are higher than they would typically be. Rutschman, Witt and Vaughn in most rankings are very high, I mean MLB Rutschman is average like top 4-6
  11. Here are a few: Ohtani wins AL MVP Bryce Harper is NL MVP (hits 45+HR) Blake Treinan ends up leading Dodgers in saves David Dahl plays 150 games Andrew McCutchen tops 130 runs scored Kyle Tucker puts up season to land himself as top 25 pick in 2021 Brandon Belt has the out of nowhere 30HR season for 2020
  12. Catcher is probably one of the settings lineup configuration swings when it comes to value. If its a straight head to head league, I think some of the "volume" disparity you might see in Runs/RBI heck even SB for some of those guys that might get 6+ SB's just doesnt play out week to week day to day - but in a season long? I really focus on Runs and RBI volume especially in 2 Catcher leagues, which is the other huge factor. I actually dont think people value Realmuto enough, especially in 2 Catcher Roto settings, I caught some guff in the Mock we did in the fall, I think I took him nea
  13. Hopefully he starts and Flores is there to be the backup at the 3 IF spots - Crawford is owed $30 Million over next two seasons
  14. 2B is kind of interesting because so many of the say 2b1 guys having multiple position eligibility - I think I counted 14 of my top 20 can be slotted elsewhere so its one of those things in an auction or draft where its hard sometimes to find the "baseline" or what I call the $1 line or the Do Not Draft line I dont think there is a top tier, I actually have about 7-8 guys in a top tier that depending on your needs I can see people going with.
  15. Our league has had the discussion several times, and the thought was in our league which is typically 13 teams, sometimes 12 that having Saves + Holds would essentially turn relief pitchers into kickers - just would flood the market and in an auction keeper league, to change value of players (which we thought it would) would need to be at least a year out. So it will always lessen the value, I think the depth of the league will determine how much. If your talking like a 12- team "only" league (AL or NL only). I think though in like a standard sized mixed league, probably has bigger impact o
