Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

It's the "eye test". I watch all the M's games and every at bat he is really patient and has great discipline. He is hitting the ball really hard (double and another HR today). Of his 11 hits he has 5 doubles and 4 homeruns. These aren't bloop hits or anything, he is crushing the ball. Hits in the 6 slot. No way the M's take him out of the lineup when Segura comes back, so he likely will gain OF or 1B eligibility as well.

Also he has hit at least 3-4 balls that fell within 10 feet of being homers (2 in the last game I went to earlier this week).

His BABIP right now is probably under what it really should be given how well he is hitting the ball. Whether pitchers adjust and that stops remains to be seen, but for now he's owning and should be a great source of RBI and power.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

I was at the Ms/As game tonight specifically to watch Paxton and Haniger. Even sported my vintage Mariners jersey to help the cause!



Sadly, my ridiculously hot 21 yr old friend distracted me the entire game and I dont remember anything post tailgate bbq.



Edit -also i am sloshed rigjt now

Got offered (below) 5x5 roto ypl

My current: cano, Thames, Vargas

I'd get: dee Gordon, m carpenter, Giles

Struggling on steals and svs, doing well mostly everywhere else

This feels like a win for me, but Idk what I'm doing so coming here for help. Thanks

Don't know that I'd have done that before Thames became Bonds.

He is swinging for the fences a bit too much for my liking and if his whiff rate goes up when pitchers adjust the floor can be really bad

Having said that there are worse players to take a flyer on and wouldnt rule out picking him up

It's operating on the assumption he replaces Valencia or something

Absolutely not. If you're the one giving up Ramirez/Hamels that's fist pump snap reject

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

How am I so lost? Ramirez has been on my bench all season so far, does he really hold that much value?

Thought DeGrom would be in CY discussions & Pomeranz is one of those underrated crushers.

Thanks SRM.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

There's no way Ramirez should be on your bench. He's been one of the best hitters in baseball so far

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Bautista dropped in a YPL, I know he's been sucking, but have to grab him off waivers, right? Can drop Renfroe, Wieters, or C Hernandez and stick him on bench hoping for a bounceback

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

I'd pick him up just in case but I expect nothing out of him. He's a 36 year old fly ball hitter. His numbers are not at all out of line with what happens when someone like that faces diminishing power especially considering it was already diminishing last year

Bumgarner suffered bruised ribs and a Grade 1 or 2 AC sprain in his pitching shoulder. According to MLB Network insider Ken Rosenthal, Bumgarner is expected to be out for six to eight weeks.
