Bret, what do you think about no one taking Holland/Kimbrel/Jansen. Wouldn't it be a great advantage of having one just for the potential of 100 Ks out of a 40 save closer? Could be an advantage no one took.

Has anyone dived into the advanced stats to see if there is any reason he was so bad? I quickly glanced at 0-Swing %, Z-Swing %, and the like and I don't see much there. Anyone? He's got to be worth a $1 bid on the chance he rebounds and hits 20 bombs, right?

I feel the trend for table 4 is one of speed. At least 5 of those guys get their value mostly from speed. SB appeared to be down this year. 1) Is the decline in speed this last season the beginning of a trend or anomaly? 2) Should I be focusing on sub $5 guys who mostly provide speed? Is that the market inefficiency for next year? Love the work Mike.

I think getting Puig makes this even and then add in Bryant plus another pick in return. Bryant is a solid get because anyone who could potentially hit 30 homers is rare-look at how many mlb guys hit 30 this year-not many.

I now know why the Brewers of the late 90s were really gritty but couldn't get over .500 What I would love to know is the relationship between who was in charge of the farm, when the Brewers made changes, and if there is any relationship to when they finally got good.

Paul, do you ever look at career ops against an opponent? Usually I go to espn and look at my pitcher and his career stats against the batters for each team. Do you think that is more useful or ops against lh or rh batters (like Masterson)?

Curious about Morales being in a lower tier. He's projected for 24 homers which, I am coming to learn, is nothing to sneeze at anymore. Finding 25 homers in fantasy is harder to come by. Anyone else see 24 homers for $16 as great value?

I worked at Wilson Park in Milwaukee as a teenager when he brought his team. They were good and he could go yard. It was packed and I was amazed at how many older women were there. He was kind of a big deal.

I'm not sure sure Riggleman's decision was bad. It seemed that they weren't going to resign him. I thought I remember reading somewhere that Davey Johnson was rumored to be waiting in the wings for the job. Wasn't he in the organization at time already? If your're not gonna get the job why not put all your chips on the table, he called the bluff and lost, imo

I think Josh Hamilton is a possibility. Michael Young has an outside chance. Not saying it's a hard rule but it seems in most professional sports the teams that make the finals have a couple. The only team I could think of that doesn't appear to have a future Hall of Famer was the Pistons team that won the NBA title in the early 2000s.

Kevin, I go under the impression that if a team wants to get to the World Series they need to have a couple future Hall of Famers. With the draft, I always wonder who has the most potential to go the Hall of Fame (I know, sort of ridiculous to try and predict such a thing). Do MLB teams view the draft like that? Care to make a guess about who has that potential or is it just obvious that the the top picks are the ones that teams think could be future Hall of Famers?

It really hurts as a Brewer fan to see two years of the prime of Braun and Fielder wasted. It's astounding how bad they are this year even with career years from Weeks, Hart and Mcgehee. I feel like a crime has been committed by Doug Melvin but on the other hand I'm not sure that he isn't handcuffed by what he can spend.

"...but he'll still have a good shortstop in Brendan Ryan as "opposed to Alcides Escobar." Does this sentence then mean that Escobar is a "bad" shortstop? Watching the Brewers this year I've thought that he was at least average, not bad.

Don't know if anyone can answer this: if Jeffress tests positive again, is he banned from minor league baseball or all of baseball? I ask because if it is only minor league baseball, then I guess the Brewers could bring him up to the majors but then could never send him down again. Not probable but possible?
