TTO Scoresheet Podcast: Episode 94

0

Ian Lefkowitz, Ben Murphy and Jared Weiss

In their second episode of the year, the Outcomes take listener questons, offer their thoughts on keeper decisions and BP's top 101 prospects, and much more.

The Three True Outcomes podcast is here with our second episode of 2017. We take some listener questions, mostly about keeper decisions. We also go through some thoughts on resources for making keeper choices, factors to consider, and what to do at the last minute when you’re not sure who to keep. We chat about the BP Top 101 prospects and how that list (and others) translate to Scoresheet, and we also mention the BP Scoresheet Draft Aid as a tool for preparing for picks before and during your drafts.

Tale of the Tape: Khris Davis vs. Miguel Sano

Alex Chamberlain

Which of these sluggers is a better fantasy bet in 2017?

Bret shirked his duties of feeding me an angle for this because he was drafting in mixed-league LABR or some inexcusable nonsense like that. I took off my own training wheels and immediately noticed an interesting contrast between back-to-back outfield picks who could not be more similar: Khris Davis and Miguel Sano. At 24th and 25th among outfielders, respectively, and just outside the overall top 100 with about a 10-pick cushion between them, the two are virtually perfect substitutes in terms of price and skill set. In the tale of the tape, however, one must prevail. I always head into these things with a preconceived notion, but I try not to let it color my bias. I'll be fighting it strongly this time.

Fantasy Players to Target: Outfielders

BP Fantasy Staff

Our staff identifies potential value plays at this position in drafts and auctions this spring.

Billy Hamilton, Cincinnati Reds

Some of you already had your eyes on Hamilton as a source of stolen bases this season. However, there are reasons to believe he could produce at a higher level in several categories in 2017. Hamilton’s end-of-season stats weren’t eye popping, but his monthly splits give a few reasons for optimism.

Early ADP Analysis: Outfielders

1

Matt Collins

A look at where players at this position have been selected in the early batch of drafts this spring.

We have reached the outfield section of our fantasy positional series, which means we’ll be looking at the deepest and most robust section of any fantasy roster. In this post, as always, we’ll be looking at the early ADP Analysis from early NFBC drafts and looking at the biggest movers compared to their standing in last year’s column. Once again, the average round is based on a 15-team draft. Without further ado, let’s get to the players.

Fantasy Players to Avoid: Third Base

14

BP Fantasy Staff

You might be better off letting someone else buy or draft these players in your leagues this spring.

Yoan Moncada, Chicago White Sox
Moncada has monstrous raw talent and he’s obviously a premium asset in dynasty leagues, especially with his speed and power combination. Moncada might be a 30/30 player someday if everything goes right. He is probably the best fantasy prospect in baseball, and I absolutely love him long term.

The -Only League Landscape: American League Third Basemen

0

Mike Gianella

Scanning the menu of hot-corner fantasy options in the junior circuit.

Entering 2017, the relative strength or weakness of third base in the AL depends on whether Manny Machado is used as a shortstop or as a third baseman. Including Machado, third base was the second-best position in the infield in 2016. If you exclude Machado, third base was the second worst position behind catcher. In 2016, Josh Donaldson and Jose Ramirez led third basemen in earnings at $29 apiece. Of the duo, Donaldson is more likely to maintain his value this year. Donaldson dropped from $37 in AL-only in 2015 but his real-life value is consistent. He is one of five players who has produced a TAv of .305 or higher every year since 2013; the other four are Mike Trout, Freddie Freeman, Paul Goldschmidt, and Miguel Cabrera. No matter what Donaldson’s fantasy stats look like, you’re locking yourself into a great player who will likely produce near $30 of stats at a minimum.

The battle for second best fantasy third baseman in the AL in 2017 is likely to be a three-way tussle among Evan Longoria, Kyle Seager, and Todd Frazier. After years of being overpriced, Longoria was finally a slight bargain, earning $22 to his average $18 salary in the expert mono leagues. Longoria’s ceiling is limited because of his lack of contributions in stolen bases and batting average. Despite offering vastly different earning profiles, Seager and Frazier are both likely to cost in the mid-$20s in AL-only. Frazier’s 40 home runs and 15 steals would have had his fantasy managers salivating if not for the terrible batting average. Seager is an amazing player in real life (his WARP was second best among AL hitters behind Mike Trout) but like Longoria is limited in fantasy because of the lack of steals and AVG.

Can an improved batted-ball profile sustain the former Dirtbag's fantasy value, or is it time to sell high?
