read a bunch of yanks blogs.  think carp will dh some and play 1b some. sancehz will dh vs lefties a lot with carp at first base

edit: and ya what bigbat said. sanchez will prob dh a ton when carp gets injured

also, no way yanks sign EE or anyone of that caliber 

Carp?  Mike Carp?  Is in back in baseball?  I thought Greg Bird will be their regular everyday 1B.

No he's got it all wrong. Mike Carp is going to be the 5th starter and play shortstop in between starts. He's also taking over as General Manager.

Yeah I still don't know why that guy said Carp would play 1B.  Maybe he got his sea life mixed up with his critters that fly.  Gives a new meaning to the Bronx Zoo.

I dont think he lasts the 5th round in Standard leagues, I dont think he lasts the much into the 3rd round (if that) in 12 team leagues. Could easily be 4th and 2nd respectively. 

 

Two-catcher league maybe.  Is he really that much better than Lucroy in a non-keeper league?

Not sure, but the hype will be there. I'm betting I won't be hearing Sanchez is the Gronkowski of fsntasy baseball for the last time.

Sanchez won't last to the 5th round in 99% of leagues.  I doubt he even lasts to the 4th in most leagues.

 

He should not be taken higher than the third round.  In fact you could argue for the second round.

 

If Sanchez is the player he showed briefly in 2016 and I own him, I'm going to win my league/  

 

$1 OF (20th round or later for you draftees) commonly emerge into solid fantasy contributors.  How many 1 dollar Catchers?

But there's no chance he's the player he showed briefly in 2016. No chance. No one, and I mean no one, repeats a 40% HR/FB.

I like Sanchez as fourth rounder and depending on my first two picks I might reach for him in the third.

His GB% was very high, I believe around 50%.  Any chance as his HR/FB rate falls, he can counter by hitting more Line Drives and Fly Balls?

In my opinion, 20% HR/FB is an aggressive, but not entirely unlikely projection. I'd personally guess around 17%, but let's roll with 20% and note that this will be optimistic.

Even with a 20% HR/FB, he'd need to boost his FB% from 34.2 all the way to 68.4 to sustain the same rate of home runs. Todd Frazier led the league in FB% at 48.7%, so obviously 68.4 isn't happening.

There just isn't a reasonable scenario where Sanchez repeats last year's production, at least in HR.

That's not to say I'm not a Sanchez fan, but he ain't hitting 60 bombs

Yeah 60 is unreasonable as it has not been done in modern times without steroid-abuse.

 

But I think 45-50 HRs is not out of the question if he can bolster his FB% to 40-50%

A FB% spike like that is highly unlikely, and even if he did have that kind of spike it would require a very high HR/FB to get him to 45. 35-40 is probably the ceiling

Gary Sanchez is still a catcher. Very very very few hitters reached that last year with 650+ PAs as every day players. Maybe you could list that as the upside if he were the full time DH but I can hardly imagine him hitting 40 with the limited PAs

Yeah I agree.  Last year after he started off hot they used him as a DH when he wasn't catching to keep his bat in the line-up.  But this year they brought in Matt Holliday to DH.
