  1. As a Story owner, why? As a Rockies fan. If they hold him the whole year, they get a comp pick. A comp pick and a top 3 MLB pick lets them do damage in the draft with a huge cash pool. I don't have a good feel for this situation, but Dick runs the show. He cares about one thing, the gate and ticket sales. I'm not sure Story returns much on the open market, so maybe they keep him to have a huge bonus pool for the draft. Idk.
  2. Can't use wRC+ for them. They have played 7 of their 16 games versus the Dodgers, or 43% of their games. Also just faced DeGrom. They should be the #1 target for pitching streamers in away games for sure though. No clue what this means. Everyday, I check the Vegas spreads. Everyday, a Coors game has the highest run total if one is scheduled. Maybe Wrigley if the wind is blowing out beats it with a frequency that is like twice a month. Runs/RBIs/Avg is so slanted in the Rockies favor that this statement makes no sense to me for fantasy. I do think as an organization they have a hor
  3. 3-games in Cinci this week with no DH. Rumor was he was going to get OF-eligibilty in the off-season with lots of NL parks front loaded into the schedule. I don't follow Cleveland closely, so not sure if something change since Spring Training. Naylor seems like the replacement if the NL no DH thing holds true. We will find out this week if he has a chance at OF eligibility.
  4. He's pretty much already projected to beat that. Zips 2021 (age 22 season): 528 abs, 122 rs, 161 h, 34 dbls, 37 hrs, 141 rbi, 16 sb .305 ba, .420 obp, .595 slg, 1.015 ops. For reference, Miggy had 697 PA compared to Soto's projected 640 PA which is dragging down his totals. Ted Williams is his top Zips comp.
  5. Was BA's breakout pick. Was on Law's just miss list. Goldstein said this today... Yankees 12:20 Luis Medina (P-Yankees). He had a nice winter ball. Does the industry think he has enough control to stick as a starter, or the back end of the bullpen? Trust the Yankees development team? Kevin Goldstein 12:21 I watched him pitch yesterday and it's crazy good stuff, but like you say, the command still has a ways to go. So young, and plenty of time, but I'd be excited about the upside. Yankees are VERY good at developing, among other things, so be optimistic.
  6. Keith Law's # 20. Ranks him ahead of Sixto #25 for comparisons sake due to Cabrera's plus plus change that he says might be an 80 grade pitch.
  7. Played winter ball this year.. Luis Medina, RHP (Yankees No. 11) Medina allowed two runs over five innings to earn the win in his first playoff start for Mayaguez (Puerto Rico). He issued three walks and gave up a pair of hits in the contest, striking out four against Atenienses De Manati. The 21-year-old right-hander was the most electric pitcher during the LBPRC regular season, leading the league in ERA (0.54), WHIP (0.78) and strikeouts (32). He also held the opposition to a .125 average (also league-best) in 16 2/3 innings, averaging 17.3 K/9 over four starts. htt
  8. He has a 40 grade arm so it's not a realistic pipe dream.
  9. Was looking at Fangraph's Prospect Board. Kind of amazed that he has an average exit velocity (Ave EV) of 101 mph. The next closest are three other hitters tied with 96 mph Avg EV. If that information is correct, that seems quite notable. https://www.fangraphs.com/prospects/the-board/2020-in-season-prospect-list/scouting-position?sort=14,1&type=2
  10. ^^ I'm with you, abolish inter-league play. I don't need to see Mike Trout once every 3-years when I can watch his every game via one of the nation's largest tele-providers for free (T-mobile). Inter-league play serves no purpose in the age of internet. Get rid of it. It was fun for a few years, now it's a nuisance. Fantasy players think the DH is good because all their turd hitters get a chance that might not otherwise get a chance. All it does is add more parity to offense making everyone more inter-changeable in the end. Unless you play in really deep leagues that is.
  11. This year's 11th overall pick, draws a lot of Chris Sale comps and starts his career like Sale in the bullpen. Just wanted to start a thread on him because I find him interesting. Made his MLB debut last night and had 2 ks in one shut out inning touching 101 mph. Mike Leake (2009) and Brandon Finnegan (2014) were the last to accomplish this feat of debuting in the MLB the same year they were drafted. https://www.mlb.com/news/garrett-crochet-white-sox-top-2020-draft-pick-called-up
  12. Eflin... “I think it’s awesome,” he said. “To me, they feel a little softer and you can definitely notice the seams a little more. Last year, it was like throwing a cue ball.” https://www.nbcsports.com/philadelphia/phillies/zach-eflin-mlb-new-baseballs-grip He's just one guy. Anyone else?
