TTO Scoresheet Podcast: Episode 79: Prospect Talk

Ian Lefkowitz, Ben Murphy and Jared Weiss

The Outcomes go prospecting and provide the results of their recent roster scraping.

This week on the podcast, we talk about prospects. We cover a variety of big picture topics around things like how many and what types of prospects we recommend keeping, how and when to draft prospects, how to value and trade prospects, and of course, we get into specific players who are likely to be available in your league whose stock we expect to rise.

The Outcomes discuss rotation arms for Scoresheet leagues and suggest some options to fill out your staff.

Last year, in this space, we articulated our core principles when it comes to drafting Scoresheet pitchers. Essentially, we think that you should draft for depth, be sure to mix in risk, and grab innings later where you can. In lieu of reprinting last year’s article, or just appending it and writing +1 at the end, we’ll instead offer in this space a mélange of “guys we like.”

TTO Scoresheet Podcast: Episode 77: Scoresheet Draft Preview

Ian Lefkowitz, Ben Murphy and Jared Weiss

The Outcomes get you ready for draft day with their ranking of the top 20 available players in each league.

While players are still getting into the best shape of their lives, and most fantasy leagues haven’t even had their mock previews come out yet, Scoresheet owners are all set to begin drafting. Yes, in public leagues, drafting begins as early as Leap Day, leaving plenty of time for the long procession of 20 rounds of draft picks over the next few weeks. While we can’t speak to your league, we’re here to help with a Scoresheet draft preview.

But how can you do a draft preview when you don’t even know who’s available, you may ask? Good question, person we set up to introduce this paragraph! All of these players are available in at least 50 percent of leagues at the moment, meaning that you’re likely to find him available. Odds are, your particular league may have a few players that we would rank even more highly, but if you don’t see them listed, it’s likely because they’re relatively frequently owned. If you have questions about anyone you don’t see here, we (or the fearless commenters) would be delighted to discuss them below.

Stacking up the pasture-patrollers for Scoresheet leagues.

Just because we released our final keeper rankings, that doesn’t mean we stop working for you. (For anyone who hasn’t seen them yet, be sure to check out the final spreadsheet.) We know that many of you are in private leagues with unusual keeper deadlines, or look to these rankings for trade discussions, plus, if we didn’t participate in outfield week, we’d just plain feel left out.

The disparity in talent between the American League and National League outfielders is perhaps the most substantial divide in the game right now, and compounded even more by the need to fill multiple positions. In the American League, it may be a good year to piece together a corner outfielder from scraps, while in the National League, it may be worth liquidating some draft picks to trade up.

With the deadline approaching, the Three True Outcomes reveal their entire keeper rankings for 2016.

Due to Scoresheet’s relatively early keeper deadline, we wanted to share our full keeper rankings in advance of our regular fantasy position-by-position coverage. Check out our 2016 Keeper Rankings for our advice on which veteran players to keep, and balance that knowledge against the output of the forthcoming Player Forecast Manager and advice from the Scoresheet Talk forum.

TTO Scoresheet Podcast: Episode 75: Shortstops

Ian Lefkowitz, Ben Murphy and Jared Weiss

The Outcomes rank the six-spotters for Scoresheet formats and discuss on the podcast

With a spate of young stars at the top of each league, the shortstop position is better equipped for the future than at any point since the heyday of Jeter, Garciaparra, A-Rod, and Tejada. There likely has never been more striation between haves and have-nots either, as your team either has bought into a young star (or has one of the rookies who are not eligible for this list), or your team is found wanting, outside of a few durable veterans. In the American League, there is enough veteran depth to make your weaker shortstops somewhat fungible, and in the National League, much of the depth falls well below the keeper line.

As always, these ratings are based upon a standard, ten team continuing league, and players who can play multiple positions are being evaluated as a third baseman alone.

TTO Scoresheet Podcast: Episode 74: Third Base

Ian Lefkowitz, Ben Murphy and Jared Weiss

Evaluating the hot corner for Scoresheet leagues.

The league’s best player/weatherman leads the outfield, and there are young stars at shortstop, but it turns out that there’s no healthier position in baseball right now than at third base. In both leagues, in every format, you will likely be satisfied with your starter, and the stars at the position burn bright and hot. The downside to that depth, however, is that you may be compelled to throw back players who you may otherwise feel are worthy of a keeper slot. If you have two quality third basemen, you may be forced to make a tougher call than usual.

As always, these ratings are based upon a standard, ten team continuing league, and players who can play multiple positions are being evaluated as a third baseman alone.

TTO Scoresheet Podcast: Episode 73: 2016 Mock Draft Review

Ian Lefkowitz, Ben Murphy and Jared Weiss

The Outcomes rank keystoners for Scoresheet leagues, and recap the offseason mock draft on the podcast.

It may not seem this way to a traditional fantasy owner, but for Scoresheet owners concerned with defense and playing time, second base offers an abundance of riches right now. Just about every team in every type of league should come into the season feeling confident in their up-the-middle strength. The sturdiness of the position and lack of extreme star talent will also make it difficult to improve your station here, or to use the positional depth to execute trades.

TTO Scoresheet Podcast: Episode 72: First Base Week

Ian Lefkowitz, Ben Murphy and Jared Weiss

The Outcomes rank the first basemen for Scoresheet formats and discuss on the podcast.

If you’ve missed this reminder during the past few years, “first base week” means something different to Scoresheet players than to our fantasy brethren. In Scoresheet, qualifying for the position is something of the equivalent of a participation trophy. Are you an infielder of good or ill repute? Great news! You can stand around at first and be essentially average. Are you an outfielder? You can probably step in as well. Are you a first baseman? Great! Join in, your defensive contributions are noted and devalued accordingly. Are you David Ortiz? Oh, okay. Well, first, thanks for reading—we’re pretty surprised, too. Second, we’re sorry that you’re the only player in the game who is essentially incapable of playing the position. We hope you enjoy spending the season shaking hands with team presidents and enjoying gifts of souvenir cowboy boots and surfboards and whatever other nonsense as a consolation prize.

The Outcomes return to run down the catcher crop for Scoresheet leagues.

We are delighted to return for a third season of Scoresheet Baseball-specific coverage on Baseball Prospectus, just in time for BP’s catcher week. If you haven’t played Scoresheet before, it’s a baseball simulation engine (similar to Strat-o-Matic, or Diamond Mind for the computer savvy), using real in-season results to give you that rush of watching your fantasy baseball team succeed or fail during the season. If you’re interested in starting a team, we would be happy to talk to anyone who wants to figure out how to jump on board either through email or in the comments section below, and we’re sure other longtime players will jump in as well.

After a week away, the Outcomes return to answer a host of listener questions as the Scoresheet playoffs approach.

Fear not, loyal listeners, for we have returned. We took a week off to take care of some important things in life, like buying a house and going on a road trip. We’re back and this week is chock full of content around some listener questions. In fact, if you wanted to make a drinking game out of this episode, be forewarned that the word “questions” is uttered rather frequently.
