Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

In a 12-team 5x5 roto with normal pitching categories, pick two. Can keep for 2017 and 2018 at that draft slot.

Kenta Maeda, 17th rd
Michael Fulmer, 20th rd
Aaron Sanchez, 29th rd

Our draft is 30 rounds if that matters. At first I was leaning towards dropping Maeda (I got him in a trade late in-season so didn't really follow him all year) but I didn't realize he was over 9K/9 compared to about 7.5K/9 for Fulmer. And in the NL and on a great team. Keep Maeda and Sanchez?

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Maeda did have a higher K rate than Fulmer last year, but didnt he also get pulled in the 5th or 6th inning like every single game?
I'd rather bet on Fulmer taking a step forward in Ks, than Maeda staying healthy and racking up innings. Take it for whatever its worth, but when asked about Fulmer the other day in his fangraphs chat, Eno Sarris said he "sees an ace" in Fulmer.

FWIW Maeda is going ~40 picks ahead of Fulmer in NFBC drafts right now so lots of people disagree with me.

Why would you be worried about Maeda getting injured? He's pitched 175+ innings the past 8 years.

With that said, assuming no other keepers, I'd lean Sanchez then Fulmer. Both have more risk since they're just getting stretched out to full seasons, unlike Maeda, but definitely like their upside more than Maeda, although you could argue he's safer.

Like a regular one, but with multiple players up simultaneously (2 x number of owners) and an eight hour bid-resetting clock.

Maybe its just anecdotal eveidence, but it seems like when Japanese/Korean pitchers come over to MLB and begin pitching more frequently they tend to either get injured, or have their innings limited. Kuroda is the only recent one I can think of off the top of my head, who was really durable and could be counted on for 200 innings.
Although I guess that could be said about all pitchers in general who haven't yet proven to be 200+ inning per year horses

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Ty everyone

Maeda did average about five and a half innings per start, whereas Fulmer was over six .. they just outright skipped him a few times if I recall to keep the IP down IIRC.

I think I'm slightly leaning Fulmer too. Way younger and has been healthy the last three years. Ultimately I hope someone else will just give me a decent draft pick for one and I'll just keep the other.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Still hoping to run a H2H+Roto mashup league this year. It's basically weekly ROTO.

In a 12 team league if you get 1st place in RBI and 3rd place in R you get 12 pts for RBI, 10 pts for Runs, etc.

Here's a mockup of the rules I created/wrote for last year (never ended up running the league), subject to change obv.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B28...NnS21yZ1E/edit

LMK if you would be interested and i'll try to keep an internal list going.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Is it just me, or playoffs seem weird?
1st/2nd make "finals", but 3rd-6th(and maybe 7th) and only 1 gets through to finals?

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

I'm def open to changing anything. I think the reasoning behind the playoff format was I wanted to try to reward regular season as much as possible like Roto does (hence top 2 automatically are in the money), while also including the potential for "upsets" like H2H does (4 team playoff for last finals slot and guaranteed payouy), but with reduced variance (2 week matchups).

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

My top of the draft so far:

1) trout
2) Mookie
3) Arenado
4) Bryant
5) Goldy
6) Altuve - Can't see his power going higher, but could see it dropping out. 2B depth is pretty insane this year.
7) Rizzo - Like the first base scarcity and the lack of any real luck in his recent success.
8) Machado - SS feels incredibly deep to me.
9) Donaldson
10) Kershaw
11) Bro
12) ??

Thoughts?

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Mine's right around the same, but have Goldy above the 3B's, Bryant>Arenado (but it's really a toss up), and will likely have Votto or Miggy at 12.

I hate taking Kershaw first round though (and Harper too), hope I don't get stuck in that position

yeah, I'm not 100% on the Arenado-Bryant-Goldy ordering (pretty sure I like Arenado > Bryant, but not sure where to juxtapose Goldy), but know i like them all more than Altuve. Agreed on Kershaw/Bro, but I'm not seeing much in the way of alternatives, really.

Yeah, just feels like huge risk/reward in Harper, and really safe with Votto/Miggy

True. It's funny, mid first round, I feel like I just want security with Arenado/Bryant/Goldy, but late in the round, I'm more inclined towards the upside plauy...just feels inevitable that starting with Miggy/Votto puts you beyond the teams with Arenado/Bryant, while Bro gives you the opportunity to leapfrog all of them. I might just be talking myself in circles though.

For sure, think it depends who is left/where you're picking. If you're in 11 and take Harper with Votto/Miggy both on board, you're guaranteed the safe guy on the bounce back (unless 12 takes 2 1B which seems unlikely).

Correa/Turner seem popular around that point too, don't think I'd take them there though

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Springer (2.6, #19) - .260 with 25 homers and 10 steals doesn't seem like top 20 material to me.

Yelich (3.9, #35) - like the player but with NFBC ADP pushing 60, feels like a guy he could have gotten in next round.

D Gordon (3.11, #37) - guess people are jumping right back in. I'm kinda worried.

I like what Murphy in the 13-hole is doing taking Billy Hamilton to go with a bunch of power bats,

Don't think Kershaw 3rd is that hot of a take (maybe if he was 1 or 2), either you want the SP 1st round or you dont

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Trout's too damn reliable to go a different direction at #1 .. but I could justify Kershaw anywhere else. Heck according to the FG calculator he was the #4 overall player (and #1 pitcher) LAST year when he only pitched 149 innings.
