Not much of a Baez fan but he's a huge steal in the 6th @ Pick 80

 

For sure.  I am all over that.

Jesus Luzardo seems way too high.  He gives up too many home runs and had a FIP 4.19.  I get that he has potential but so does every pitcher eat him on that list.

 

Concur.

Wow this is a terrible take. His first year he came up and hit 39 HR in just 132 games with a .933 OPS. He was incredible. His second year in 2018 was disappointing from a fantasy perspective, bu

Early indications are I will be ALL OVER Trout this year, crazy you could actually get him without a top 3-5 pick in 2021

idk if I ever see him stealing 20 bags. I do agree otherwise tho, i'll be shocked if he doesn't hit around .320 the next few years, would not be surprised in the least bit to see a .330/50/120/.450 season from him.

 .330 / 50?  Soto is a prodigy... but that's some Lou Gehrig kind of voodoo.

I mean, Ken Griffey Jr. reached the 50-homer plateau only twice - and while his discipline isn't on the level of Soto, his swing was far more geared for bombs. 
I agree with the .330 though. He's a sublime hitter. 

*sigh*.... I need to do some pushups....

Seems close, I'd have to think about it, but Bichette was a monster before the injury


Yeah, you could tell he wasn't 100% when he came back. 

The thing with Bo is that he's only 22 and going to get better. Lindor is elite, but he is what he is at this point.

I wouldn't say Bo is going to get better from the pre injury pace.  Players are peaking earlier and earlier now.  Lindor's career 310/355/466 and the last two full seasons he averaged 35 bombs and 23.5 steals.  I think it's a pretty close decision now, I might say  the Bo side could be riskier since he hasn't done anything over a full season yet....but I do like both guys. Not sure I could fault someone going either way here.

I feel like I’m on crazy pills any time someone mentions Bichette. I feel like I’m miles lower on him than both the industry and just normal players.  The dude has had 300 major league at bats, isn’t even ++ in any one category, and we’re talking about taking him over a perennial superstar in lindor?

Feel the same, and I’m from TO. He’s great, but the hype is out of control. He still has a ton to prove before cracking the top 15 IMO.

what category is Mookie Betts ++ in? He’s a career 300 hitter basically same as Bichette. I’ll def give the power nod for Mookie  but he only has 2 seasons above 30 and barely over 30 (I wouldn’t call that ++) Bichette was on pace for 25 for 150 games this season, probably better pre injury pace . Steals feel kinda similar here. Wouldn’t be surprised if either beat the other and i wouldn’t pick either to get 25. Hopefing for 17-22 realistically with a chance for more or less.

Dont get me wrong , I much rather have Mookie but Mookie’s ADP will be considerably higher. 
 

Bichette seems like a five category dude to me and I’m not saying he should be a top 5 guy, but I’m not sure a 14-20 range seems wrong, and I think he could be a top 10 player. Hes a very well rounded category for 5x5.  If some of you need to see him do it for a year, that’s fine. His draft price is high that he’s not a must draft at his ADP.

Trout goes 10th, Bo goes 13th...which means, in theory anyways, Mike Trout for Bo Bichette is a fair trade.  Just a few picks apart.  Nobody's trading Trout for Bichette.  In fact I'd go so far as to say in some leagues that gets vetoed.


I wouldn’t veto it , but I think Trout at 10 is dumb. Would surely want the Trout side l.  Probably still my number one overall. Bo is really good still. Will be interesting to see where his ADP ends up.

In the most recent one with Trout going 1st overall 5 pitchers were taken in the 1st round 4 of said owners doubled up with a 2nd in rnd 2.1 of said 4 owners didn't add to his staff, 1 owner started with 3 in the first 4 rounds and stopped (I like his team Cole, Flaherty, Albies, Plesac, Baez and Moncada), picks 14 and 15 4 P  and 3 P through 6 rounds.

They have said once these 3 drafts are finished they'll have their adp up and running, signups are open https://nfc.shgn.com/lobby/baseball

I still feel like in any serious league Trout will go 1/2

I can see a serious argument for taking Betts, Acuna, Soto ahead of him. I don't think I would rank them in that order, but I don't know I would fight it too much if someone else ranked them that way. Then there's always the hype on a Bellinger or some other guy that ends up jumping into the upper tier. Then there's always the owner who takes a deGrom or other top arm. As crazy as it sounds, I can see Trout consistently falling out of the top five.
