Hitter over scherzer, anyone over Blackmon, chapman or Jensen over Lester, Watson isn't the official closer yet, and ya Hendricks in the 5th is unforgivable
Yeah Blackmon HUGE mistake In this seasons pitching landscape Scherzer/Lester/Hendricks/Watson all positives.

Quote:
Holy **** this team is bad, would be shocked if you finished top 6.

Hendricks in the 5th is mind numbingly bad and I'm assuming you picked Blackmon over Harper or Rizzo which is incredibly bad as well.

You are going to finish bottom 3 in homers and RBI
Team is top 3 in all offensive cats except HR (7 points) which is middle of pack.

It is still very early but things are starting to take shape. Especially in roto. But my point is managing is much more important than drafting. A good portion of the drafted team (all of the last 10 picks) is already gone and replaced.

DL - Eaton
drops - Mauerer, Fowler, Gattis,, Miller, Beltran, Kiermeier, Walker, Brach, Gomez, Hudson

adds - Hedges, Castro, Shaw, Alther, Suarez, Schebler, Haniger (DL), Devenski, Bradley, Knebel, Hand, Rivero (I move back end (non closer) bullpen pieces often)

Worst category is wins (only 4 points) which I don't worry about since with proper pitching management I will be able to rack more wins in last month when I start streaming for more innings and much of the league will be disinterested and capped at innings.. I always consider wins a catch up category.

My 4 teams are currently 1st, 1st, 1st and 6th. All drafted with a similar drafting strategy. The 6th place team has an uphill battle but isn't buried anywhere. It has suffered the most injury issues which is why it is underperforming.

Once again the point is that good active management and waiver wire awareness greatly trumps whatever happened in the draft as long as your first few picks don't totally **** the bed. I still think finding/getting pitching that doesn't kill you is the key to success. Everybody hits! All of my leagues still have reasonably decent hitters still sitting on the wire that I would be comfortable plugging in if need be. That is not the case with SPs but there are always a few quality non closer RPs to be had.

Yes, managing and waivers does trump drafting, but that doesn't mean you put yourself in a massive hole to begin the season and rely on getting almost all the waiver guys that hit. Because that usually doesn't happen in competitive leagues.

It's also may, I'm still,incredibly confident your offense will not last

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Blackman and Hendricks picks weren't great (regardless of if they worked out or not). Honestly everything else is fine but I wouldn't have taken so many pitchers that early...

Grandal is great.

Also lol at Avila > Posey and Sanchez

Posey has 7hrs and only 11 rbis, which likely means he's had horrific cluster luck which will regress. I like Avila a lot, but come on

Not sure who you should drop but Kahnle is a great speculative shot. If/when Robertson gets traded Kahnle will be the closer unless Jones gets back from DL and even then Jones has to be 100%. Kahnle consistently brings some 99+ heat and even without the job gets about 2K's per inning with great ratios. I have 2 shares and he is available in my other leagues and I have owned him at some point on all of my teams. If trade news get serious I will grab him in the others.

I love Avila and all, but def not over Sanchez/Posey. He's a backup C, I only advocate and post on here when he's getting regular playtime, which is now. When McCann is back, you can't roster Avila, so it doesnt matter how well he hits.

Also, Kinsler to DL

active management is a supplement to good drafting. it's not mutually exclusive

The 1b clogging is my chief issue with him

In April he already had a > 20% HR/FB but in May he's at a FB/GB of .58, hard hit up to 49% soft hit down to 9. How sustainable? Idk, if the ratio shifts back it obviously hurts but I tend to think the power is real. I don't know what changes he made to his approach but it does seem one was made

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

The Avila post was a joke, but I am enjoying the production. In a Roto format it's arguable that a guy like Avila is better than most other catchers even if he doesn't have the volume that the other middle and low-tier guys get. One of the things you can really get crushed at in Roto is having a catcher who puts up minimal counting stats while tanking your AVG/OBP. I think i'd rather have a catcher than has an OBP of 0.350 and gets 2R, 2RBI, and 1HR a week than a catcher than has an OBP of 0.300 and gets 3R, 3RBI, and 1HR a week. The impact is magnified or minimized based on how many hitters you start though.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Bour is actually probably the one I believe in the least, but I think at the moment he has the most resale value. His splits are just littered with red flags that go beyond accounting for him running hot right now

Edit: that being said it's interesting that while he's striking out more against lefties he's also hitting the ball harder against them than RHP

Edit2: man just cannot get a read on this guy
