    Wily Peralta?

    Thanks again for the feedback.

    I think Peralta will be fine this year. I think I'm just regretting not taking Walker (who went a few picks later) instead, now that he's pretty much become the pitcher with the most buzz and hype during spring training.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I guess I should have mentioned that this is a non-keeper league, which further justifies my decision to go with experience over long-term upside.

  • What do you think of Peralta's outlook for this upcoming season after his breakout last year?

    I used a late-round pick on him to round out my rotation, but in hindsight, I'm thinking I should have used that on a prospect with a higher upside like T. Walker or C. Martinez instead. At the time, they didn't have rotation spots secured (and technically still don't).

    I just thought Peralta might be a more reliable option since he has a bit more experience and a proven ability to win nearly 20 games in a season.

    Vargas or Cron?

    Thank you to everyone for the feedback.

    As I mentioned, I didn't draft either or these players in my 10-team league and am not looking to pick them up anytime soon.

    I was just wondering what the odds are that one of them plays their way into shallow league relevance over the course of the season.

    Thanks again.

  • Anyone think either of these second-year, power hitting 1B could be worth owning in a 10-team league this season as a good source of HR off the bench?

    Neither was drafted in my league, but they are both on my "watch list."

    Back of rotation SP

    I prefer Tillman. He's the ace of a better team, and the A.L. East isn't what it once was.

    Yasmani Grandal?

    I drafted him as a bench player in my league, and the 1B eligibility is an added bonus.

    I'd say there's a chance that he puts together a "breakout" season of sorts, now that he's in a better line-up and a smaller ballpark.

    I would hope A.J. Ellis doesn't cut into his playing time, though I believe I read that he is Kershaw's catcher of choice.

    I drafted Alcantara and am expecting good things from him, but I also had my eye on Semien, who should soon get SS eligibility and plenty of playing time in Oakland this season.

  • Which player would you rather own as your back-up 1B this season?

  • Scott by Scott Mar 25, 2015 11:18 AM Flag

    What are your opinions of Alcantara this year?

    I drafted him in one of the later rounds, hoping he can act as my "Swiss army knife" super-utility guy who I can plug in at a number of positions throughout the season.

    Do you think he'll play enough to have value? And is there any chance he gets enough starts at SS backing up Castro that he will get eligibility there? It's the only position I don't currently have a reserve player to cover.

  • Anyone think this guy could have a breakout season pitching in Oakland's rotation?

    He's not getting much fanfare, and he's not even listed on most player rankings, but he's a former top prospect who was very good last year and is having an impressive spring.

    Anyone think I should have drafted Taijuan Walker late in the draft ahead of Peralta? I'm kind of regretting that one...

    I had a late pick after doing well last season. So, not much was left, and the decision was between Rizzo and Felix, and I don't like investing in pitching that early.

    I drafted Rizzo in the first, Jones in the second, Arenado in the third (reach but third basemen were coming off the board, and the next guy was going to take him), Springer in the fourth, Zimmermann in the fifth, Gattis in the sixth (probably another reach).

  • My 10-team, H2H, non-keeper league drafted yesterday, and I'm feeling pretty good about the "breakout" and "sleeper" players that I was able to grab, though I waited on pitching and have a few wild cards.

    Any feedback that anyone can provide is greatly appreciated. Thanks very much.
