Hold until May June. You'll get better offers from top teams at that point, especially in a pay league.
walk rate in 2015 at AA was 9#$%$ been as high as 13% in 2013. I expect an 8% BB rate, which with a .275 avg. should push him into a .330-.340OBP. 150 hits and 50BBs works out to roughly a .340OBP and .275 avg. Roughly speaking. in 600 Plate appearances.
He is classified as Utility or DH. If your league has neither, he will not be an option to draft. If he has the minimum play in the field to qualify for a position, Yahoo would add that position eligibility to him and he would become available.

Mike Trout said Wednesday that he would like to steal more bases in 2016.

*FYI...he said the same thing last season...and never made any kind of attempt to really steal bases.*
Guy offered me this in Dynasty, I am pretty sure I should reject and hell no, but wanted thoughts to be sure.
I give: Braun, Schwarber, Hanley, Matz, Stroman, Hosmer and Trea Turner
I get: Bautista, Corey Seager, Posey, Y. Ventura
Not all SPs are created equal.
Strasburg has had a "normal" trajectory, people just seem to ignore that. 160 IP, 183 IP, 215 IP, then 127 IP this year (but time on the DL). That's what you want from an SP in their first 3 years (ages 23-25).
Two years ago, he was a top 50 player and the 14th best SP. Last year, after he came back, healthy, from the DL he was elite. Post ASB he ha 6 W, 66 IP, 92 K, 1.90 ERA, 0.75 WHIP. That's this kids ceiling.
I think Strasburg can, and will be, a top 10 SP for the next 5-6 years. He's that good.
Agree. Samardzija is a hype machine because of what he did as a wide receiver at Notre Dame.
He is 35-52 as a starter since 2012 with a career 4.09 ERA and 1.28 WHIP. His K/9 is 8.2. All that is including his breakout year of 2014 which turned out to be the anomaly. Hopefully you have already made the trade.
I wouldn't own Felix Hernandez in fantasy baseball.
1) He pitches for a lousy offensive team.
2) He pitches for a lousy defensive team.
3) He throws like he is hurt.
4) He pitches for an American League team.
All are red flags for fantasy baseball. If you can pluck a 4th or 5th starter from a NL team that has a positive run scoring differential then you will do much better than having Felix Hernandez on your team.
Can my team make to playoff? Im currently in 8th place. only top 6 team advance to playoff... my team is going to face the 5th and 11th place teams in last 2 weeks... need your opinion and advice! thanks
Here is my roster:
12 Team H2H 9 Cat
PG: Conley, I.Thomas, Holiday, Ish Smith
SG: Beal, Jordan Clarkson, Bezemore
SF: Lebron, Kover
PF: Ibaka, Turner
C: Towns, Al Jeff, Dieng
Notable FAs:Galloway, K.Anderson, Mayo
I dunno if your team would make playoffs. If its 12 team H2H I can image there are other teams more stacked at center that would beat you in boards and blocks, but you may get lucky and do very well the final two weeks so who knows
I'm down for dumping Duncan. He also is likely to be limited or rested down the final stretch of the season. I don't think I would drop him for Bazemore or Dudley though. Do you have any other options on the wire?
No way in 4ell do I do that. A young top 20 player who has eligibility for both left side infield positions. .286 avg with 35 HR and 20 SB who is 23. Why would you give that up? Is he going to regress or get better? What do you get for the 80th pick with 40 players kept? Corey Dickerson? A relief pitcher?
