Not to give away my secret to success, but in H2H leagues, I think it's always better to use all you bench spots for pitching. In rotisserie leagues, you have a max number of GS's or IP's for the season, meaning 5 or 6 good starters will be enough to meet the max. You don't want to waste a start on Doug Fister in May, if it costs you a Justin Verlander start in Spetember. In H2H leagues though, You can pick up a couple of guys in the back of the draft like Fister and Tim Hudson, and the two together will put up the numbers of an elite SP.
In H2H leagues, I always end up with a bunch of low WHIP/ERA guys with low K totals. You can pick up those guys at the back of the draft and concentrate 8 or 9 of your first 10 picks on offense.
I believe Sizemore will be moving back to 2B, his original position.
He's got it sown up...
I think Epstein would be more inclined to trade LaHair, given his past with Rizzo, his desire to rebuild a younger club, etc...
Agreed. A lot can be said of Kevin Goldstein's work. But no one has ever taken the time to tell him, in a very clear and direct manner, "Great gob!"
What's with the $5 million bonus given to Nomar Mazara? He seems to be ranked pretty considering the signing bonus.
I read recently that his mother is relatively famous in Cuba, and it has been common knowledge that she had Yoennis when she was 17. I think he's one of those cases that no suspicion attached...
We had a guy in our offense who would lie to get ahead. He would exaggerate any of his accomplishments, twist facts around and basically had no scruples.
No one found him compelling.
To be fair, this piece is a critique of an entire organizational philosophy, not just one or two specific moves/non-moves.
What have you heard about Oscar Hernandez, C, Rays? He's putting up an unreal .423/.521/.845 in VSL. Is this kid vaulting up the charts or merely putting up good numbers?
Edwin Jackson had no problem in his debut facing Randy Johnson...if only all prospects could pan out from Day 1 like that...
Kevin, What are your thoughts on a pair of young pirate hurlers, Bryan Morris and Rudy Owens. I've noticed you seem to like Morris a bit over Owens, particularly, for fantasy purposes, though the two seemed to go hand-in-hand on most prospect lists.
Has Owens overtaken Morris yet, or is it still too early to tell?
Ryan Howard comes to mind....I remember him being considered very Cust-like at the time, plenty of power, plenty of K's, and a decent and improving eye for the plate. Then he hit .371 as a 25 year old in AAA, and they called him up and he never looked back.
Belt and Jerry Sands seem to be having similar breakouts this year. Both dominated A-ball, but were a bit too old for their leagues. However, their seamless transition to AA seems to indicate that these guys are for real. If they keep this up, is there a chance either/both can squeeze into the top 50 by the end of the year?
