[Feb 18, 11:14 AM] admin: Hello world!
[Feb 18, 11:16 AM] Todd Zola: surprised the picks aren't representative of OBP
[Feb 18, 11:17 AM] admin: You talking Story?
[Feb 18, 11:17 AM] Todd Zola: https://t.co/WUFOEJLkKs
[Feb 18, 11:17 AM] Todd Zola: Harper late, Judge late
[Feb 18, 11:18 AM] admin: Harper has to be FA skittishness, no?
[Feb 18, 11:18 AM] Todd Zola: Goldie, Freeman also didn't change much'
[Feb 18, 11:18 AM] Todd Zola: yeah, likely
[Feb 18, 11:19 AM] ATCNY: Harper low down may be because he is still a FA?
[Feb 18, 11:19 AM] ATCNY: Once he signs with a team, maybe PHI … have to imagine his ADP will go up.
[Feb 18, 11:49 AM] admin: Elite starters may all be gone by the middle of the third.
[Feb 18, 12:14 PM] Tim McLeod: Morning folks!
[Feb 18, 12:15 PM] Tim McLeod: Looks like the chat function is functioning great
[Feb 18, 12:21 PM] admin: Looks like it is.
[Feb 18, 12:22 PM] Tim McLeod: How's everything in Colorado? Spring around the corner
[Feb 18, 12:22 PM] admin: Five inches of snow today. It's 11 degrees F.
[Feb 18, 12:23 PM] Tim McLeod: Hmmmm, I feel better about our weather now. Thanks!
[Feb 18, 12:23 PM] Gialde: Interesting pick of Kershaw there in the 2nd
[Feb 18, 12:23 PM] Tim McLeod: I really like what two teams have done pairing up two top-tier SP early
[Feb 18, 12:24 PM] Tim McLeod: In a Draft and Hold solid SP base is imperative I believe
[Feb 18, 12:24 PM] admin: There's only one more top tier guy left, right?
[Feb 18, 12:25 PM] Tim McLeod: Clevinger is close to that top=tier
[Feb 18, 12:25 PM] admin: Close. There are ways to play it without one of the top guys, but it's a lot tougher.
[Feb 18, 12:25 PM] Tim McLeod: Agreed
[Feb 18, 12:26 PM] Tim McLeod: Buehler has to be going soon I'd think
[Feb 18, 12:26 PM] Gialde: Buehler innings though?
[Feb 18, 12:26 PM] admin: That's also a good reason to double up. Keeps other teams from getting one of the top guys.
[Feb 18, 12:26 PM] Tim McLeod: I took him at turn last week. I'm very bullish
[Feb 18, 12:27 PM] Tim McLeod: Not concerned with innings. Got in 153 not including playoffs last year
[Feb 18, 12:27 PM] Tim McLeod: I think 180 or so
[Feb 18, 12:27 PM] Gialde: big fan Tim
[Feb 18, 12:27 PM] Gialde: and Todd
[Feb 18, 12:27 PM] admin: Yeah, not many reach 200 these days.
[Feb 18, 12:27 PM] Tim McLeod: very few
[Feb 18, 12:27 PM] Tim McLeod: Why I like Clevinger a fair bit
[Feb 18, 12:27 PM] Gialde: I just worry about LA being cautious and using 10 day DL
[Feb 18, 12:27 PM] Gialde: * IL
[Feb 18, 12:28 PM] Todd Zola: I've talked a lot this spring that while I will still take a SP early, there are ways to plan around it so I'm not forcing one.
[Feb 18, 12:28 PM] Tim McLeod: I'm still calling it DL Gialde
[Feb 18, 12:28 PM] Gialde: haha
[Feb 18, 12:28 PM] Tim McLeod: Probably always will
[Feb 18, 12:28 PM] admin: IL makes me ill. It's a football thing.
[Feb 18, 12:28 PM] Tim McLeod: agreed
[Feb 18, 12:28 PM] Tim McLeod: I always think of Illinois when I see IL
[Feb 18, 12:29 PM] admin: Hmm, nothing wrong with Illinois.
[Feb 18, 12:29 PM] Tim McLeod: Nothing at all
[Feb 18, 12:29 PM] Gialde: Too many people getting offended at dumb things. "Disabled"
[Feb 18, 12:29 PM] Todd Zola: MLB changed IL to DL because of sensitivity to disabled, yet they keep "sacrifice"
[Feb 18, 12:29 PM] Gialde: haha Todd
[Feb 18, 12:29 PM] Tim McLeod: lol
[Feb 18, 12:30 PM] Todd Zola: <>
[Feb 18, 12:30 PM] Tim McLeod: My biggest concern about going late on SP is that it forces one to a very limited group of SP as you move into middle rounds. Makes it tough
[Feb 18, 12:31 PM] Tim McLeod: still doable, just tough as 14 others fight for 2nd/3rd starters
[Feb 18, 12:31 PM] Gialde: yes and you may not be the only one in that position, so you run the risk of getting sniped in mid rounds as well
[Feb 18, 12:31 PM] Gialde: can really put you in a pickle
[Feb 18, 12:31 PM] Todd Zola: The argument for hitters is the delta among top hitters is larger than normal. You can get power late, but you're losing runs and RBI.
[Feb 18, 12:32 PM] Gialde: taking care of it early seems to be the consensus
[Feb 18, 12:32 PM] admin: The failure rate of those midlevel starters is higher, too, so you increase risk of getting nothing.
[Feb 18, 12:32 PM] Tim McLeod: and eventually the run on RP commences in 7/8
[Feb 18, 12:32 PM] Todd Zola: everyone taking SP early allows you to build a HUGE edge in batting
[Feb 18, 12:32 PM] Todd Zola: you can still manage pitching, you have to bully batting
[Feb 18, 12:32 PM] Gialde: yes but Todd hitting is much more abundant
[Feb 18, 12:32 PM] Todd Zola: not easy, but can be done
[Feb 18, 12:32 PM] Tim McLeod: If I was going late on SP probably go hevy on RP
[Feb 18, 12:32 PM] Todd Zola: no, it isn't
[Feb 18, 12:32 PM] Todd Zola: that's the key
[Feb 18, 12:33 PM] admin: The big hitters are way better than all the other hitters.
[Feb 18, 12:33 PM] Tim McLeod: Shocked that Baez fell that far
[Feb 18, 12:33 PM] Todd Zola: the drop in runs and RBI rleatibe to HR is huge as you process down teh snake
[Feb 18, 12:33 PM] Tim McLeod: definitely
[Feb 18, 12:33 PM] Todd Zola: *relative
[Feb 18, 12:33 PM] admin: Many more pitchers who cost nothing end up being at least mid level contributors.
[Feb 18, 12:34 PM] Gialde: ok but do you feel that delta is larger than the difference in pitchers
[Feb 18, 12:34 PM] admin: Baez a sign that OBP matters.
[Feb 18, 12:34 PM] Gialde: I think late hitters could emerge as well
[Feb 18, 12:34 PM] Todd Zola: like I said, I still want pitching early, but not forcing, say, Jose Berrios in ROund 4 to make sure I get someone
[Feb 18, 12:34 PM] Gialde: I think it's so tough to come back from pitchers who get shelled
[Feb 18, 12:34 PM] Gialde: oh well agree with you there Todd
[Feb 18, 12:34 PM] Todd Zola: everyone will get a pitcher shelled
[Feb 18, 12:34 PM] Gialde: you can't do that
[Feb 18, 12:35 PM] Gialde: I mean consistently shelled
[Feb 18, 12:35 PM] Gialde: I built a team around Robbie Ray as my ace last year lol
[Feb 18, 12:35 PM] Gialde: epic fail
[Feb 18, 12:35 PM] Tim McLeod: Dare you to try same this year, Gialde!
[Feb 18, 12:35 PM] Gialde: had to learn the hard way
[Feb 18, 12:36 PM] Todd Zola: RRay, Godley, Castillo and S Gray harpooned my 2018
[Feb 18, 12:36 PM] Gialde: sans Castiloo, I may have zero shares of the rest
[Feb 18, 12:36 PM] Tim McLeod: Yu Darvish and Taijuan Walker for me
[Feb 18, 12:36 PM] Gialde: I kind of like Castillo around the same place he went last year
[Feb 18, 12:37 PM] Tim McLeod: me too
[Feb 18, 12:37 PM] admin: Wow, Corbin's gone too. Will Boggis, Aniano and Hallam panic?
[Feb 18, 12:38 PM] Tim McLeod: we'll find out soon. all 3 in same area. Will be fun to watch
[Feb 18, 12:38 PM] admin: A one minute clock definitely increases the drama.
[Feb 18, 12:38 PM] Todd Zola: I'm supposed to be biased as draft policeman, but their scenario is what I'm referring to. All the yellow has pushed up bats.
[Feb 18, 12:38 PM] Todd Zola: *unbiased
[Feb 18, 12:38 PM] Gialde: yes Todd totally agree
[Feb 18, 12:38 PM] Gialde: diminishing returns now with SP
[Feb 18, 12:39 PM] admin: Yep.
[Feb 18, 12:39 PM] Tim McLeod: Draft slot dictates path
[Feb 18, 12:39 PM] Gialde: but…people panic
[Feb 18, 12:39 PM] Gialde: vere from plan
[Feb 18, 12:39 PM] Gialde: get emotional about runs
[Feb 18, 12:39 PM] Tim McLeod: 8-thru-12 get the SP in first or second or pass until 5th?
[Feb 18, 12:40 PM] Todd Zola: curious -- those chatting, did you register through chatroll? We're gauging if this will work for the live drafts/auctions
[Feb 18, 12:40 PM] Gialde: yes sir
[Feb 18, 12:40 PM] Tim McLeod: FB for me
[Feb 18, 12:40 PM] Todd Zola: so pretty seamless.
[Feb 18, 12:40 PM] Gialde: it's working well
[Feb 18, 12:40 PM] admin: I had 10th pick until I switched out for Boggis, and planned on (and would have) til third for a starter. But in his seat not I go hitter.
[Feb 18, 12:40 PM] Tim McLeod: and got in right smartly. No problems at all
[Feb 18, 12:40 PM] Tim McLeod: No lag at all
[Feb 18, 12:40 PM] Todd Zola: thanks, good to know
[Feb 18, 12:41 PM] Todd Zola: we really missed this during the events last season and want to be ahead of the game this time
[Feb 18, 12:41 PM] Tim McLeod: I've already done three
[Feb 18, 12:41 PM] admin: Yeah, I'm feeling like I should turn on the full version, but since we haven't hit full on the gauge maybe I'll wait.
[Feb 18, 12:41 PM] Gialde: Todd this is really, really a great thing for your listeners/fans
[Feb 18, 12:41 PM] Tim McLeod: and ready for a 4th, Todd. hint hint
[Feb 18, 12:42 PM] Gialde: I think this would catch on as word gets out
[Feb 18, 12:42 PM] Gialde: especially evenings and weekends
[Feb 18, 12:42 PM] Todd Zola: I think this would rock during Tout Daily too
[Feb 18, 12:42 PM] Gialde: yes
[Feb 18, 12:44 PM] admin: Good idea.
[Feb 18, 12:45 PM] Tim McLeod: You could even set up a couple of Draft and Holds with some open spots so the masses could get involved
[Feb 18, 12:45 PM] Tim McLeod: challenge the Tout thing
[Feb 18, 12:46 PM] Petey: Seems to be working.
[Feb 18, 12:47 PM] Todd Zola: There wasn't a ton of interest - let me see how many we would need and if those into it would do it with the proverbial "Average Joe". I'm doing some stuff for CreativeSports today. Will try to do it later.
[Feb 18, 12:48 PM] Tim McLeod: I'm definitely interested in doing another Draft and Hold, Todd
[Feb 18, 12:48 PM] Tim McLeod: gladly partake
[Feb 18, 12:48 PM] Gialde: Please count me in if you would allow it
[Feb 18, 12:48 PM] Gialde: sorry that sounded trolly
[Feb 18, 12:49 PM] Tim McLeod: and Boggis goes Vladdy
[Feb 18, 12:49 PM] admin: Risky, but he didn't blink.
[Feb 18, 12:49 PM] Tim McLeod: nope
[Feb 18, 12:49 PM] admin: I'd be up for Draft and Hold now that I'm not in Draft and Hold.
[Feb 18, 12:49 PM] Tim McLeod: I have Vladdy at #15
[Feb 18, 12:49 PM] admin: Overall?
[Feb 18, 12:49 PM] Tim McLeod: It's a lot of fun, Peter
[Feb 18, 12:49 PM] Tim McLeod: No at 3B
[Feb 18, 12:50 PM] admin: Ah, better.
[Feb 18, 12:50 PM] Tim McLeod: yeah, 2020 for me on Vladdy
[Feb 18, 12:51 PM] SteveA1976: Has the draft started?
[Feb 18, 12:51 PM] Tim McLeod: It has, near end of 3rd Round
[Feb 18, 12:51 PM] Tim McLeod: Link is available at the site
[Feb 18, 12:52 PM] SteveA1976: Thanks checking now
[Feb 18, 12:52 PM] Tim McLeod: https://www.fantrax.com/newui/fantasy/draftResultsPopup.go?leagueId=pay367rljrsn54nh&type=LIVE_ONLINE&tabId=
[Feb 18, 12:52 PM] Tim McLeod: There ya go, Steve
[Feb 18, 12:53 PM] Todd Zola: also http://bit.ly/ToutDraftHold
[Feb 18, 12:53 PM] Todd Zola: for when we're doing media
[Feb 18, 12:53 PM] rotoman: Room is upgraded to 100 capacity.
[Feb 18, 12:54 PM] Gialde: nice
[Feb 18, 12:54 PM] Gialde: would you create different chat rooms for specific drafts, or just have a static address where everyone can congregate?
[Feb 18, 12:54 PM] ATCNY: Next picks will be a little while. Aniano on a plane right now.
[Feb 18, 12:54 PM] SteveRapin: I will let Hallam know. He’s waiting patiently lol
[Feb 18, 12:55 PM] ATCNY: Said he's supposed to land just after 2 PM
[Feb 18, 12:55 PM] ATCNY: ET I think
[Feb 18, 12:55 PM] Todd Zola: sent me a note, I'll check and report to room
[Feb 18, 12:56 PM] rotoman: There will be a link on the Tout Wars page. I'm not sure exactly how they do it, but check there for updates.
[Feb 18, 12:56 PM] rotoman: Okay, back to work for me. Been fun.
[Feb 18, 12:57 PM] SteveA1976: Like James Anderson's start. Vlad at 40 is in line with the NFBC drafts I have been in. Interested to see when Mondesi gets taken.
[Feb 18, 1:02 PM] Gialde: I have noticed Mondesi's stock is falling recently
[Feb 18, 1:02 PM] Gialde: but then I hear some people touting his batted ball metrics
[Feb 18, 1:02 PM] Gialde: so who knows
[Feb 18, 1:03 PM] SteveA1976: I rarely see him get out of 3rd in nfbc. I've done 26 nfbc this year and he rarely gets to the 50's .
[Feb 18, 1:04 PM] SteveA1976: Interested to see where Puig and Murphy go as well
[Feb 18, 1:04 PM] SteveA1976: Both with major helium in last few weeks
[Feb 18, 1:05 PM] SteveA1976: Puig went 66 in nfbc slow draft I'm in right now .
[Feb 18, 1:08 PM] ATCNY: Aniano landed
[Feb 18, 1:08 PM] ATCNY: Draft will move shortly …
[Feb 18, 1:10 PM] Gialde: That's seems high for Puig
[Feb 18, 1:11 PM] Gialde: Mondesi went 52 in a $350 league I'm doing on RT
[Feb 18, 1:11 PM] Gialde: but it's online championship, which uses OBP
[Feb 18, 1:11 PM] Gialde: so that may have played a part
[Feb 18, 1:12 PM] SteveA1976: Puig was crazy high so that's why I'm interested .
[Feb 18, 1:16 PM] rotoman: Hi all. I've started a new chat with increased capacity. I'm going to close this one out in a couple of minutes. Please sign in on the other chat. Thanks.
[Feb 18, 1:18 PM] Gialde: is this the new chatroom?
[Feb 18, 1:21 PM] Tim McLeod: I logged out of the old one
[Feb 18, 1:23 PM] Tim McLeod: I just posted on the FB Page that we were chatting so maybe it will generate some traffic
[Feb 18, 1:25 PM] Tim McLeod: How much time alloted for picks?
[Feb 18, 1:28 PM] Gialde: rotoman the old chat is perhaps embedded in the web page? might confuse people as they arrive to chat
[Feb 18, 1:29 PM] Gialde: nevermind
[Feb 18, 1:29 PM] Gialde: I reloaded page and it's gone
[Feb 18, 1:29 PM] Tim McLeod: I only have the one here
[Feb 18, 1:31 PM] Tim McLeod: Will Ryan blink?
[Feb 18, 1:31 PM] Tim McLeod: or go with the bat
[Feb 18, 1:33 PM] Gialde: I guess he could go Taillon?
[Feb 18, 1:33 PM] Gialde: pitching seems so inflated
[Feb 18, 1:34 PM] Tim McLeod: If me I'd pass on pitching and hope that Taillon or Berrios there for my next pick
[Feb 18, 1:34 PM] Gialde: Taillon or Clevinger
[Feb 18, 1:34 PM] Tim McLeod: or Clevinger
[Feb 18, 1:34 PM] Gialde: I agree Tim, but it's so inflated that you risk getting shut out
[Feb 18, 1:34 PM] Tim McLeod: He took Bellinger
[Feb 18, 1:34 PM] Gialde: hmmm
[Feb 18, 1:34 PM] Tim McLeod: Bravo, I say!
[Feb 18, 1:35 PM] Gialde: you and him are the only 2 to go hitters-only
[Feb 18, 1:35 PM] Tim McLeod: Six picks until it comes back to him. 3 solid SP options. Does he get one of them?
[Feb 18, 1:36 PM] Tim McLeod: You and him?
[Feb 18, 1:36 PM] Tim McLeod: Lost me Gialde
[Feb 18, 1:37 PM] Tim McLeod: Hey, Casey. Nice to see you join us
[Feb 18, 1:37 PM] Gialde: sorry, Boggis and Hallam
[Feb 18, 1:37 PM] Gialde: did you say you were drafting for Boggis
[Feb 18, 1:38 PM] Varneroo: Hi, Tim! Thanks for the link.
[Feb 18, 1:38 PM] Tim McLeod: No, just spectating. Mine is first week of March
[Feb 18, 1:38 PM] Gialde: ahhh ok
[Feb 18, 1:38 PM] Tim McLeod: I'd already own Mondesi twice, lol
[Feb 18, 1:39 PM] Tim McLeod: yw, Casey
[Feb 18, 1:39 PM] Tim McLeod: This draft function works very smoothly
[Feb 18, 1:39 PM] Gialde: what would you say is the sweet spot for Mondesi and what's the soonest you'd consider him (in a vacuum, assuming you could have any spot in order)
[Feb 18, 1:40 PM] Tim McLeod: soonest the turn, 30/31. The lastest he'll most likely go is 7/8 picks into 4th Round
[Feb 18, 1:40 PM] Gialde: OK
[Feb 18, 1:41 PM] Gialde: so you're on board with him adjusting and keeping contact rate up
[Feb 18, 1:41 PM] Tim McLeod: If I was a betting man, he'd be a good fit at the wheel
[Feb 18, 1:41 PM] Tim McLeod: 240 BA, 310 OBP, 15 HR 40+ thefts
[Feb 18, 1:43 PM] Gialde: I just wish he was a little later. Still scares me a bit.
[Feb 18, 1:43 PM] Tim McLeod: I think the speed is there so that minimizes the risk factor
[Feb 18, 1:43 PM] Tim McLeod: I really like the Merrifield pick a lot.
[Feb 18, 1:43 PM] Varneroo: Do you think you can get a similar stat line from Villar several rounds later?
[Feb 18, 1:44 PM] Tim McLeod: 2B/OF eligible a huge bonus
[Feb 18, 1:44 PM] Tim McLeod: It's possible, Casey.
[Feb 18, 1:45 PM] Tim McLeod: I'm very curious to see where both go
[Feb 18, 1:45 PM] Tim McLeod: and I'm thinking in next 15-20 picks
[Feb 18, 1:46 PM] Varneroo: Honestly, I’ve been focusing on power OF early and targeting Gordon & Peraza for my MI in the middle rounds for speed.
[Feb 18, 1:46 PM] Tim McLeod: Some teams have no speed at all
[Feb 18, 1:46 PM] Tim McLeod: Alex?
[Feb 18, 1:46 PM] Tim McLeod: just kidding
[Feb 18, 1:46 PM] Tim McLeod: I like Peraza a lot for speed also and Rosario
[Feb 18, 1:47 PM] Tim McLeod: Hampson could bring you 30+ also
[Feb 18, 1:48 PM] Gialde: yes I like all 3
[Feb 18, 1:48 PM] Gialde: Peraza is kind of like Mondesi
[Feb 18, 1:48 PM] Tim McLeod: The MI is full of options
[Feb 18, 1:48 PM] Gialde: improved lineup too
[Feb 18, 1:48 PM] Tim McLeod: yes
[Feb 18, 1:49 PM] Varneroo: Good hitter, improved lineup, I’ll be targeting Peraza a lot this season.
[Feb 18, 1:50 PM] Tim McLeod: This round will be huge for several teams. Tough decisions for many
[Feb 18, 1:51 PM] Varneroo: How do you feel with starting your rotation off with Flaherty or Clevinger, Tim? Too risky?
[Feb 18, 1:52 PM] Tim McLeod: I think it forces you to move on a second SP right away, but I'm not against that type of move
[Feb 18, 1:53 PM] Tim McLeod: I've done that with Clevinger in at least one D and H
[Feb 18, 1:53 PM] Tim McLeod: I think it was Taillon and Clevenger?
[Feb 18, 1:56 PM] Tim McLeod: What is the max time between picks?
[Feb 18, 1:58 PM] Tim McLeod: Joey Votto at #45
[Feb 18, 1:59 PM] Tim McLeod: Rendon, with the first pick of the 4th Round
[Feb 18, 2:00 PM] Tim McLeod: Mr. Anderson just locked up the OBP category
[Feb 18, 2:01 PM] Tim McLeod: Votto and Judge are huge, plus Rendon no slouch
[Feb 18, 2:05 PM] Gialde: is this OBP or AVG?
[Feb 18, 2:05 PM] Tim McLeod: Tout uses OBP
[Feb 18, 2:05 PM] Gialde: oh!
[Feb 18, 2:05 PM] Gialde: sweet
[Feb 18, 2:07 PM] Tim McLeod: I love the fact that Tout has moved to OBP. Actually, more than half my Leagues have now switched to OBP
[Feb 18, 2:07 PM] Gialde: I joined RT Sports 350s specifically to play OBP and SV+HLD
[Feb 18, 2:08 PM] Tim McLeod: Excellent.
[Feb 18, 2:08 PM] Gialde: I'd like to see NFBC add some
[Feb 18, 2:09 PM] Tim McLeod: I think with the increase in bullpen usage the middle-reliever is deserving of additional recognition in our game
[Feb 18, 2:09 PM] Tim McLeod: Holds aren't perfect, but in the absence of a better option, works for me
[Feb 18, 2:09 PM] Gialde: what do you think about Andrew Heaney this year?
[Feb 18, 2:10 PM] Gialde: considering him at pick 170, so risk is low of course
[Feb 18, 2:10 PM] Tim McLeod: I rather like him. As a #3 starter, has my attention.
[Feb 18, 2:10 PM] Gialde: 12 team, the RT format we just talked about
[Feb 18, 2:10 PM] Tim McLeod: Have seen him going in the 150-170 range
[Feb 18, 2:11 PM] Tim McLeod: I play mostly 15-team Mixed
[Feb 18, 2:11 PM] Gialde: would you take him or Jimmy Nelson
[Feb 18, 2:11 PM] Tim McLeod: Heaney
[Feb 18, 2:11 PM] Gialde: ok
[Feb 18, 2:11 PM] Tim McLeod: not close
[Feb 18, 2:11 PM] Gialde: ok
[Feb 18, 2:11 PM] Tim McLeod: Do we truly know how the shoulder will hold up?
[Feb 18, 2:11 PM] Gialde: right
[Feb 18, 2:11 PM] Gialde: ok what about Alex Reyes-STL?
[Feb 18, 2:12 PM] Gialde: surely he makes the rotation sooner or later
[Feb 18, 2:13 PM] Tim McLeod: lots of risk, lots of reward. Someone has to get hurt to get him in the rotation? The Cards could use him out of the pen this year
[Feb 18, 2:13 PM] Gialde: damn…that's what I thought you'd say…sigh
[Feb 18, 2:15 PM] Tim McLeod: Right now is CarMart, Flaherty, Mikolas, Wacha, and Wainwright?
[Feb 18, 2:15 PM] Gialde: yes…sadly
[Feb 18, 2:15 PM] Gialde: Wainwright….
[Feb 18, 2:15 PM] Tim McLeod: maybe Gomber also
[Feb 18, 2:16 PM] Gialde: I think Gomber and PonceDeLeon start at AAA
[Feb 18, 2:16 PM] Gialde: so they can stay stretched out
[Feb 18, 2:16 PM] Tim McLeod: quite possible
[Feb 18, 2:16 PM] Tim McLeod: I really don't think the Cards rush Reyes. There is no reason
[Feb 18, 2:16 PM] Gialde: ok if I keep asking stuff or is this super annoying
[Feb 18, 2:17 PM] Gialde: be honest
[Feb 18, 2:17 PM] Tim McLeod: Not a problem
[Feb 18, 2:17 PM] Tim McLeod: Just hanging out for a bit and then back to work
[Feb 18, 2:17 PM] Gialde: ok…thoughts on Colin McHugh
[Feb 18, 2:18 PM] Gialde: I listen to you and Rich religiously
[Feb 18, 2:18 PM] Tim McLeod: Thanks for your support. Much appreciated. We did two need Podcasts this morning
[Feb 18, 2:19 PM] Tim McLeod: I like McHugh as a 5th SP, remembering that Whitley will need a home by the break
[Feb 18, 2:20 PM] Tim McLeod: barring injury, one of James, Miley, or McHugh won't be in the plans for 2nd half
[Feb 18, 2:20 PM] Tim McLeod: They also could resign Keuchel
[Feb 18, 2:20 PM] Tim McLeod: Lots of potential moving parts in Houston
[Feb 18, 2:21 PM] Gialde: you think James breaks camp in rotation?
[Feb 18, 2:21 PM] Tim McLeod: Yes
[Feb 18, 2:21 PM] Gialde: ok
[Feb 18, 2:21 PM] Gialde: I could easily see Miley faltering
[Feb 18, 2:21 PM] Gialde: to make room for Whitley
[Feb 18, 2:22 PM] Tim McLeod: and unless he fails early and often, I think he's there for the long haul
[Feb 18, 2:22 PM] Tim McLeod: very possible on Miley
[Feb 18, 2:22 PM] Gialde: ok
[Feb 18, 2:22 PM] Gialde: really honored to talk with you
[Feb 18, 2:23 PM] Tim McLeod: The one thing we do know is that Houston won't hesitate to upgrade their rotation at any point in time and they have the Minor League chips to do just that
[Feb 18, 2:23 PM] Tim McLeod: My pleasure, Gialde!
[Feb 18, 2:29 PM] Tim McLeod: Nice to see you back in the room, ATCNY
[Feb 18, 2:30 PM] Tim McLeod: Back-to-back speedsters in Marte and Pham
[Feb 18, 2:30 PM] Tim McLeod: Will it be feast or phamin for Tommy in 2019?
[Feb 18, 2:31 PM] Gialde: he is super streaky
[Feb 18, 2:35 PM] Tim McLeod: that he is, but he should be happy this year with winning his arbitration hearing. He sure wasn't with the Cards
[Feb 18, 2:36 PM] Gialde: sad but true
[Feb 18, 2:39 PM] Tim McLeod: Okay, it has been fun chatting and getting to know you Gialde, but back to work for me. Have yourself a great 2019 Fantasy season!! Later folks….
[Feb 18, 2:40 PM] Gialde: Thanks Tim!
[Feb 18, 5:11 PM] rotoman: Slow drafting makes for a lot of down time. Time to do work.
[Feb 18, 5:25 PM] Guest4117Havoc: Gentlemen !
[Feb 18, 6:38 PM] rotoman: First reliever off the board.
[Feb 18, 8:43 PM] Ryan Hallam: Sorry I’m late to this party
[Feb 18, 9:08 PM] stevenswan1984: Love the start for florio and james anderson
[Feb 18, 10:47 PM] rotolady: Rotolady was here
[Feb 18, 11:18 PM] rotoman: Four rounds done today, everyone has a pitcher or two, except for Boggis. And if Vlad is worth the 40th pick, he's got a lot of hitting stats.
[Feb 19, 11:38 AM] Gialde: Machado to SD!
[Feb 21, 11:49 AM] rotoman: Checking in during Round 12. Jeff Boggis has one starter at this point.
[Feb 21, 11:51 AM] rotoman: And so many pitchers have gone that there are still useful hitters, like Luke Voit and Ramón Laureano coming out.
[Feb 21, 11:52 AM] rotoman: Two teams, Harrison and Stein, have just two starters, but they took both theirs before Boggis took his first.
[Feb 21, 6:21 PM] AnthonyAniano: Hi everyone…
[Feb 22, 10:07 AM] Ken: You said through round 12 Boggis has one starter - are we sure CMart is even a starteR?
[Feb 22, 4:16 PM] Guest8102: When is the NL auction
[Feb 23, 8:17 AM] Tim McLeod: Alex Wood feels like a great buy in Rd !6
[Feb 23, 12:47 PM] rotoman: NL Auction is Sunday morning March 17 @ 10am ET.
[Feb 23, 12:49 PM] rotoman: Good point about Carlos Martinez. His health is far from a sure thing after a year with fewer than 120 innings.
[Feb 23, 4:33 PM] rotoman: Boggis has now added Jose Quintana and Kyle Freeland, and has four relievers.
[Mar 2, 8:22 AM] Tim McLeod: We're now at the interesting stage of the program, where teams attempt to toss a dart or two in the hope of striking gold. Which of the two Tampa Bay Lowes will in fact be a high in 2019?

Tout Mixed Draft is Underway!

The Draft is underway. Somewhere out there SiriusXM has promo codes so you can listen in for free for the next three days without any sort of registration.

I’ll post if I can find them. But they’re out there.

And there is plenty of chatter on Twitter. Look for @ToutWars or #MixedToutDraft.

Follow the spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Lz06T4W8lkofWs3tcnWOvPIPV84QdSoU0lwD3YnuCgk/htmlview?sle=true#gid=0

Tout Daily Finals: The Race.

They started playing at 7:05. Now, three hours later, the top teams are running out of innings.

Challengers, with pitchers and more innings coming, lurk.

At 10:15, here are the Top 5.

Screenshot 2016-08-26 22.16.31

That’s Patrick Davitt, Tristan Cockcroft, Rick Wolf, Mike Gianella, Eno Sarris.

NOTE: Gianella (KingFolderol) has more innings left. Sarris’s second starter, Jeff Samardzija, hasn’t yet begun.

NOTE: The Top three teams all rostered Gary Sanchez, who has put up 14 points for just $2,600 in salary.

NOTE: At 11:15, Patrick Davitt has a miniscule lead over Tristan Cockcroft. Davitt has one inning of Mike Napoli and one inning of Brandon Guyer left to go. Cockcroft has one inning of Napoli. Absent a major rush from Eno Sarris, Jason Collette, or Mike Gianella, it looks like Davitt has this thing wrapped up.

NOTE: At midnight, the paths to beat Patrick Davitt are limited. Eno Sarris gets there if Jeff Samarzdija pitches a complete game shutout with eight strikeouts. He’s got five K through five IP, with a six run lead, so it isn’t impossible. Brian Walton also has Samarzdija live, but is 1.66 points behind Sarris. He needs a double from Addison Russell to pass Eno, plus Samarzdija to be good to pass Davitt.

NOTE: 12:21. Another scoreless inning, another strikeout for Samarzdija. Sarris and Walton are stalking:

depending on your inflation rate its defendable to um, why?

  Jason Collette

to Josh: could have traded Greinke at $29 for something useful?

Could only keep six and he seemed least valuable. Really disliked his move to Arizona. Where do you think he’s going today?

Sunday March 20, 2016 10:18 Josh
 
Jason Collette: 

I think he’s $27

  Jason Collette

Jason Collette: 

we’re underway & Anthony Rizzo is first off the board for $38 to Grey Albright from Razzball

Sunday March 20, 2016 10:18 Jason Collette
10:19
Jason Collette: 

Carty predictably throws out Kershaw who was never going for $38 again as he did in NL LABR. Carty had to pay $3 more to get him this time at $41

10:19

Park at $21, yesterday. Who pushed him that high, Jason. His value just continues onward and upward, eh?

Jason Collette: 

Raisel Iglesias $13 to Tristan. Had that one penciled in. Exactly what he went for in LABR. I’ll be comparing pitching values since they’re consistent but not bats because of the OBP difference

Sunday March 20, 2016 10:23 Jason Collette

Assume Goldy’s price tag directly influences Bryce Harper. Harper will have to go 43+ I’d assume. #toutwars

Sunday March 20, 2016 10:31 dan Strafford

$35 for Bryant in NL #ToutWars is higher than I expected given the K rate.
Sunday March 20, 2016 10:31 William Baker

Addison Russell — not a sleeper and not in a shallow SS NL pool, goes $19 to Tristan

Sunday March 20, 2016 10:31 Jason Collette
10:32
Jason Collette: 

staying on the SS run, Seager comes out at a dollar and sloooooooooooooowly climbs up to $23 to Gardner. Tristan pushed him up to $19 to nearly double up on the young MI pair

Sunday March 20, 2016 10:32 Jason Collette
10:33

Arenado has a chance to be this year’s Bryce Harper next year… fabulous buy at $33

Moyer went a little nutzo yesterday, I thought.

Sunday March 20, 2016 10:36 Doug Dennis

Those with money left will have to watch both the overall available talent pool and the strategic strike from those without as much overall money but that one last talent hole to plug.

Jason Collette: 

one of my NL predictions:

Sergio Romo once again saves 20-plus games. Romo had the closer role in 2013 and 2014 but lost it to Santiago Casilla and didn’t get it back in 2015. That should change in 2015 as Romo bounced back last season to show excellent skills in the pen — even better than what the kid Hunter Strickland did.

PLAYER TBF K-BB% K% BB% FB% HR/FB% Z-CONTACT% SwStr% F-STRIKE%
Santiago Casilla 244 16 25 9 30 13 89 10 57
Sergio Romo 230 27 31 4 32 7 76 17 70
Hunter Strickland 191 21 26 5 40 8 78 14 65

Casilla only needs to slip up for Bruce Bochy to go back to his known-known in the bullpen and let the skills roar.

another NL prediction from me:

Wei-Yin Chen is a top-20 starting pitcher in the NL by season’s end. He is 29th in NL-Only leagues by ADP and is going just a few spots behind Kenta Maeda, who has never thrown a major league pitch. What I like about Chen is that he’s moving from a park that inflated home runs by 12 percent to one that has suppressed them by 27 percent. Yes, the Marlins are moving in the fences a little bit, but this is still a tremendous improvement in home park for Chen. Additionally, Chen will get to pitch against the rebuilding Braves and Phillies with the unbalanced schedule. The long ball has always been a problem for him as his HR/9 was at least 1.1 in each of the four seasons in Baltimore, his ERA never below 3.34. That should change in 2016 with the change in parks, and he’ll get the bump in strikeouts going to the National League as well.

Jason Collette: 

here’s another bold NL prediction from me:

Yoenis Cespedes hits the fewest homers of the regular Mets outfielders. Last season, he was playing for a new contract and posted career highs in HR/FB ratio as well as hard contact. Much like Arrieta, Cespedes performed at an incredible rate in the second half, slugging 95 points higher at .594 compared to the .499 rate in the first half. He hit 22 second-half home runs as 25 percent of his flyballs became homers whereas 13 percent did so in the first half of the season. He should still get to 20, but so will Michael Comforto and Curtis Granderson. All three should hit between 20-25 homers, but Cespedes will bring up the rear.

Jason Collette: 

Inciarte $18 to Walton. My prediction on Inciarte:

Ender Inciarte earns more than any Braves batter in 2016. Inciarte hit .319/.358/.443 in the second half of 2015 while doubling his walk rate, reducing his strikeout rate and swiping 12 bases. We have him projected for 83 runs, 25 steals and a .288 average. Everyone else will be chasing Freddie Freeman as his hot spring is pushing his ADP, which has jumped nearly 20 points in the last week. Meanwhile, Inciarte has yet to crack the top 50 for outfielders and is going after extreme risks such as Jay Bruce and Mark Trumbo. Inciarte is one of 13 players we project to score at least 80 runs and steal at least 25 bases, and he has the lowest ADP of the 11 outfielders of that group:

• Mookie Betts: 18
• Charlie Blackmon: 35
• Billy Burns: 147
• Byron Buxton: 174
• Lorenzo Cain: 51
• Carlos Gomez: 51
• Greg Polanco: 90
• A.J. Pollock: 16
• George Springer: 24

Jason Collette: 

Brandon Moss $12 to Walton. My Moss prediction:

Brandon Moss leads the Cardinals in home runs. His home run numbers have been down three consecutive seasons, but let’s compare his 2013 season and his 2015 season in a few areas.

YEAR PA HR FB% HR/FB HARD% AVG DISTANCE
2013 505 30 52 19 40 295
2015 526 19 47 13 39 285

The hard contact was there, but the ball didn’t travel as far and he didn’t hit as many flyballs as when he hit 30 homers two seasons ago. Moss was also coming off hip surgery and did not look right at the plate until late in the season when he hit .262/.359/.429 over the final two months. Moss is the 79th outfielder by ADP and one of the few down there with power upside if he’s fully recovered from the hip injury.

Last year, I made National League and American League predictions, and didn’t do half bad in calling my shots. This year, I’m going to pick one player on each team to spotlight and include my award picks at the end, giving you 18 players in all that I either really like or dislike for 2016. I’ll begin with NL picks and pans because I’m not participating in any NL drafts this weekend, whereas I am in AL Tout Wars on Saturday morning and I’m not giving my competition any immediate ammo to use against me in that auction.

Atlanta Braves

Ender Inciarte earns more than any Braves batter in 2016. Inciarte hit .319/.358/.443 in the second half of 2015 while doubling his walk rate, reducing his strikeout rate and swiping 12 bases. We have him projected for 83 runs, 25 steals and a .288 average. Everyone else will be chasing Freddie Freeman as his hot spring is pushing his ADP, which has jumped nearly 20 points in the last week. Meanwhile, Inciarte has yet to crack the top 50 for outfielders and is going after extreme risks such as Jay Bruce and Mark Trumbo. Inciarte is one of 13 players we project to score at least 80 runs and steal at least 25 bases, and he has the lowest ADP of the 11 outfielders of that group:

• Mookie Betts: 18
• Charlie Blackmon: 35
• Billy Burns: 147
• Byron Buxton: 174
• Lorenzo Cain: 51
• Carlos Gomez: 51
• Greg Polanco: 90
• A.J. Pollock: 16
• George Springer: 24
• Delino DeShields Jr.: 177
• Ender Inciarte: 190

Milwaukee Brewers

Keon Broxton leads the team in stolen bases. Milwaukee is more likely to compete for the top draft pick than a wild card, which means it should give plenty of players a chance to show what they have for the future. Broxton came over last year in a deal from Pittsburgh and has just a couple plate appearances in the big leagues. Last year in the minors, he stole 39 bases in 54 tries and has regularly swiped 20-plus bases in the minors. He does have quite a bit of swing-and-miss in his game, but so do a number of Brewers. He’s a wild-card play in NL Only leagues in the late rounds who can be rostered for nothing and could then steal 15-20 bases if he makes enough contact to stay in the lineup. He has the defensive abilities to play all three outfield positions.

St. Louis Cardinals

Brandon Moss leads the Cardinals in home runs. His home run numbers have been down three consecutive seasons, but let’s compare his 2013 season and his 2015 season in a few areas.

YEAR PA HR FB% HR/FB HARD% AVG DISTANCE
2013 505 30 52 19 40 295
2015 526 19 47 13 39 285

The hard contact was there, but the ball didn’t travel as far and he didn’t hit as many flyballs as when he hit 30 homers two seasons ago. Moss was also coming off hip surgery and did not look right at the plate until late in the season when he hit .262/.359/.429 over the final two months. Moss is the 79th outfielder by ADP and one of the few down there with power upside if he’s fully recovered from the hip injury.

Chicago Cubs

Jake Arrieta’s final ERA is not below 3.00. He went 18-2 after June 1 with a .223 BABIP, an 85 percent LOB%, and allowed 93 hits in 164 innings while allowing just four home runs. He essentially did over 164 innings what Mariano Rivera was doing in his prime over the course of full seasons. It was simply amazing to watch, but the Plexiglass Principle says teams that improve in one season decline the following year. The same can apply to Arrieta because players that have historically amazing seasons tend to decline the following year. He is 32-11 with a 2.08 ERA as a Cubs pitcher and looking nothing like the guy the Orioles sent away to acquire the services of Steve Clevenger. Arrieta isn’t making it out of the second round in drafts, and while the wins should be there for him, the ERA is going to increase due to a mixture of regression and the unpredictable elements in Wrigley Field.

Arizona Diamondbacks

Daniel Hudson leads the team in saves. Hudson looked great out of the pen last season coming back from multiple arm surgeries and the durability concerns with him should leave him in the pen full time this season. Ziegler is the incumbent, but his skills aren’t exactly rock solid while Hudson has a bunch of swing-and-miss in his game and can get the needed punchout in tight situations whereas Ziegler has to rely on the defense to get the out. Hudson is end-game material in NL leagues or deep mixed benches that could be part of that 30 percent of relievers who get 10-plus saves who weren’t closers at the start of the season.

Los Angeles Dodgers

Yasiel Puig finishes the season as a top-12 outfielder in mixed leagues. Puig is the 23rd outfielder off the board by ADP with an ADP of 83, putting him behind the likes of Carlos Gonzalez, Adam Jones, Jason Heyward, Ryan Braun, Justin Upton and Billy Hamilton and just in front of Matt Kemp. Puig had issues with both hamstrings last year and seemed to live full-time in Don Mattingly’s dog house. Mattingly is gone and rookie skipper Dave Roberts is in place. A healthy Puig should be a lock for 20-plus homers and a new skipper could put Puig in motion more frequently, allowing him to post a double-double season, getting back to what he did in 2014 as a baseline.

San Francisco Giants

Sergio Romo once again saves 20-plus games. Romo had the closer role in 2013 and 2014 but lost it to Santiago Casilla and didn’t get it back in 2015. That should change in 2015 as Romo bounced back last season to show excellent skills in the pen — even better than what the kid Hunter Strickland did.

PLAYER TBF K-BB% K% BB% FB% HR/FB% Z-CONTACT% SwStr% F-STRIKE%
Santiago Casilla 244 16 25 9 30 13 89 10 57
Sergio Romo 230 27 31 4 32 7 76 17 70
Hunter Strickland 191 21 26 5 40 8 78 14 65

Casilla only needs to slip up for Bruce Bochy to go back to his known-known in the bullpen and let the skills roar.

Miami Marlins

Wei-Yin Chen is a top-20 starting pitcher in the NL by season’s end. He is 29th in NL-Only leagues by ADP and is going just a few spots behind Kenta Maeda, who has never thrown a major league pitch. What I like about Chen is that he’s moving from a park that inflated home runs by 12 percent to one that has suppressed them by 27 percent. Yes, the Marlins are moving in the fences a little bit, but this is still a tremendous improvement in home park for Chen. Additionally, Chen will get to pitch against the rebuilding Braves and Phillies with the unbalanced schedule. The long ball has always been a problem for him as his HR/9 was at least 1.1 in each of the four seasons in Baltimore, his ERA never below 3.34. That should change in 2016 with the change in parks, and he’ll get the bump in strikeouts going to the National League as well.

New York Mets

Yoenis Cespedes hits the fewest homers of the regular Mets outfielders. Last season, he was playing for a new contract and posted career highs in HR/FB ratio as well as hard contact. Much like Arrieta, Cespedes performed at an incredible rate in the second half, slugging 95 points higher at .594 compared to the .499 rate in the first half. He hit 22 second-half home runs as 25 percent of his flyballs became homers whereas 13 percent did so in the first half of the season. He should still get to 20, but so will Michael Comforto and Curtis Granderson. All three should hit between 20-25 homers, but Cespedes will bring up the rear.

Washington Nationals

Ben Revere returns to the 40-steal plateau. Revere’s running game came to a screeching halt once he was dealt to Toronto last season, but now comes to a team with an old-school skipper that likes to run and has Davey Lopes as a first base coach. The Nationals stole just 57 bases last season, so the acquisition of Revere was done with a purpose because it also means the talented Michael Taylor is marginalized as a reserve outfielder or sent back to the minors. Revere swiped 49 bags two seasons ago for a terrible Phillies team and scored just 71 runs. If everyone behind him remains healthy in 2016, Revere’s run total should be at least double his stolen base total.

San Diego Padres

Jabari Blash will hit at least 15 homers. A few weeks ago, I looked at some Rule 5 picks and did not mention Blash. He’s made me pay for that as he’s been very good this spring in the Cactus League and could open the season in the starting lineup. He hit 32 home runs between Double-A and Triple-A last season, and while 22 came in the Pacific Coast League, it is worth mentioning that his home park (Tacoma) is one of the few parks in the league that favors pitchers. He will make below-average contact, but he has size and power to all fields.

Philadelphia Phillies

Tyler Goeddel will put up a double-double season as a Rule 5 pick in the outfield. I will simply repeat what I said earlier this month: Philly is looking to strike gold for a second consecutive season in outfielder Tyler Goeddel. Goeddel was drafted as a third baseman by Tampa Bay but was converted to the outfield last season while he spent all year in Double-A. Last season was a career year of sorts for him as he finally showed some power to go with his speed. He has a good approach at the plate and has the athleticism to play all three outfield spots. That’s a good thing for Goeddel and the Phillies because right field is anything but locked up. Philly obviously will give Odubel Herrera, last year’s Rule 5 steal, his job back, but both corner outfield spots are up for grabs. Goeddel has shown the ability to accept walks throughout his minor-league career, which is ideal when you’re hitting in front of the pitcher in the National League. The Phillies will be terrible, which will allow them to give Goeddel all the time he needs to show if he can make the leap from Double-A to the majors and potentially have a double-double season.

Pittsburgh Pirates

Jeff Locke wins 12-plus games with a 3.50 (or lower) ERA. His 2013 and 2015 season were similar in that he made 30 starts in each, but last season he struggled stranding runners and paid for it in ERA. He won 10 games with a 3.52 ERA in 2013 and has somewhat plateaued since. He generates a lot of groundballs for the strong defense behind him to soak up and some breaks could swing him in the right direction. It is tough to find anyone on the pitching staff who could break out, so this is purely a speculation on a guy falling into some fortune.

Cincinnati Reds

Jumbo Diaz leads the team in saves. It will be very weird to watch the Reds and not see Aroldis Chapman coming out of the pen pumping gas in the ninth inning. Some are anointing J.J. Hoover as the new guy, but the only skill he really has is a 20-percent strikeout rate. He struggles to throw strikes, gives up too many free passes and is rather hittable for a closer. Meanwhile, Diaz strikes out more batters, allows less contact and throws more strikes. He too has issues with home runs, but Diaz has the best skills in this pen and should get that closer job at some point early in the season and hold onto it for a bad Reds team.

Goeddel $4 to Zola

Sunday March 20, 2016 1:35 Jason Collette
1:36
Jason Collette: 

what I said about Goeddel:

Tyler Goeddel will put up a double-double season as a Rule 5 pick in the outfield. I will simply repeat what I said earlier this month: Philly is looking to strike gold for a second consecutive season in outfielder Tyler Goeddel. Goeddel was drafted as a third baseman by Tampa Bay but was converted to the outfield last season while he spent all year in Double-A. Last season was a career year of sorts for him as he finally showed some power to go with his speed. He has a good approach at the plate and has the athleticism to play all three outfield spots. That’s a good thing for Goeddel and the Phillies because right field is anything but locked up. Philly obviously will give Odubel Herrera, last year’s Rule 5 steal, his job back, but both corner outfield spots are up for grabs. Goeddel has shown the ability to accept walks throughout his minor-league career, which is ideal when you’re hitting in front of the pitcher in the National League. The Phillies will be terrible, which will allow them to give Goeddel all the time he needs to show if he can make the leap from Double-A to the majors and potentially have a double-double season.

Keon Broxton $3 to Tristan…and now Jumbo stands alone as my late sleeper

Sunday March 20, 2016 1:39 Jason Collette
1:40
Jason Collette: 

what I said about Broxton:

Keon Broxton leads the team in stolen bases. Milwaukee is more likely to compete for the top draft pick than a wild card, which means it should give plenty of players a chance to show what they have for the future. Broxton came over last year in a deal from Pittsburgh and has just a couple plate appearances in the big leagues. Last year in the minors, he stole 39 bases in 54 tries and has regularly swiped 20-plus bases in the minors. He does have quite a bit of swing-and-miss in his game, but so do a number of Brewers. He’s a wild-card play in NL Only leagues in the late rounds who can be rostered for nothing and could then steal 15-20 bases if he makes enough contact to stay in the lineup. He has the defensive abilities to play all three outfield positions.

[Comment From Craig in ChiCraig in Chi: ] 

RE: AL Tout – I was surprised at how pricey the early hitters were. I was also surprised at how many young and talented arms went in the single digits.

Saturday March 19, 2016 3:14 Craig in Chi
 
Jason Collette: 

Pricing is typically high out of the gate in all of these drafts. The younger pitchers have as much upside as they do risks, but Tiers 1 & 2 went high so that deflated prices downstream

3:16
Jason Collette: 

and we’re off!

Saturday March 19, 2016 3:16 Jason Collette
3:17
Jason Collette: 

defending champ opens up the draft by offering a trade. Kershaw goes for $38 to DVR which is the same price he went for in NL LABR. Then, we get crickets on Andre Ethier at $2 to the mixed newbie Bret Sayre

Why, beside Jonah’s adoration, did you have T Walker targeted? (maybe repost the Periscope link, too)

Saturday March 19, 2016 4:00 Craig in Chi
 
Jason Collette: 

Walker has fewer than 250 innings at the big league level and has been rushed up & yo-yoed. He’s adding a 2-seamer & re-working his changeup and I liked what I saw of him last year. I believe I got Jonah on board with TW late last year
