The Padres want a big return for Wil Myers, the Blue Jays are still in on Jose Bautista, and Mike Napoli is fielding offers from multiple teams.

Padres need to be “blown away” by trade offers for Myers

Wil Myers is to the Padres what Anthony Rizzo is to the Cubs, or so says FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal. In other words, the Padres view the 25-year-old first baseman as a cornerstone of their 2017 roster and only intend to entertain offers that approach the value they’ve placed on him. For teams lacking a prospect-rich farm system, that may be a difficult task.

Neil Walker and Jeremy Hellickson accept qualifying offers, Brett Cecil gets paid, and Lourdes Gurriel lands in Toronto.

Fantasy Categorical Breakdowns: The Landscape: ERA

10

George Bissell

It's not exactly business as usual for how we view starting pitchers in fantasy.

The league-wide proliferation of home runs has fueled a rapid increase in run scoring over the past two seasons. After nearly a decade of offensive decline, major-league pitchers were the ones most adversely affected by the recent onslaught of round trippers. A confluence of factors like injuries, the aforementioned offensive uptick, and fewer starters eclipsing the 200-inning plateau have widened the gap between the upper echelon fantasy starters and the remainder of the talent pool. Before we take a deep dive into the fantasy ramifications of these latest developments, within the context of ERA, let’s survey the overall landscape.

She is... his fiiiiiiire. His one... desiiiiiire.

What does Mike Lawson want? In many ways, that’s been the core question of Pitch since we transitioned from a show about the first woman to play Major League Baseball to a ensemble dramedy about a baseball team that just happens to include the first woman to play Major League Baseball. As the Padres sit through a rare rain delay and a Kangaroo Court, Mike confronts his age, the waiver wire, and what he really wants. And once he decides, it blows the whole thing up.

Let's get weird.

This is the second-toughest part of the offseason. The toughest part is the bit right before pitchers and catchers report, because almost all of the pieces have been assembled and you want these guys to just go already, and you really, really want to feel warm again, but this is the second-toughest part. The stove isn’t hot so much as it is sitting at the burner position between 4 and 5 on the dial, which isn’t good for anything.

We’re sort of bored now. It makes writing difficult; ideas are hard to come by. We’re relitigating old controversies. The Cy Young awards were announced Wednesday. The selection of Rick Porcello stirred some controversy that second-toughest-part-of-the-offseason way, and in a close field, I wonder if voters might’ve benefited from a touch of the weird, the bizarre. This is the Weird Play Index, Pitcher Edition.

Retrospective Player Valuation: NL Pitchers

7

Mike Gianella

It's the good stuff. Not like those imitation AL pitchers.

Welcome to my annual look at retrospective player valuation here at Baseball Prospectus. Over the next few weeks, I will be writing a series of posts examining how players performed from a fantasy perspective in 2016. This is the fourth post in a series of six. The first two posts in the series looked at AL-only leagues, the next two shifted their focus to NL-only, and the final two posts will examine mixed leagues.

Before I dig in, here is a brief description of the charts below.
