    DickWrong announced that no fantasy team should have Segura on its roster after Segura's very good first 5 weeks, where he was getting on base, stealing bases, scoring runs, and batting in a prime spot in the D'Backs line-up.

    You are the dimwit who wrote that "no fantasy team should ever have Segura on its roster." You were wrong then, and continue to be wrong. Change your user name to #$%$ Wrong.

  • Jean Segura sucks? Oh, right, other than the 89 R, 16 HR's, 56 RBI, 30 SB, .317 BA, .362 OBP. Other than those stats, he is terrible.

    Yeah, and how about the Nolan Arenado, who has such limited value that you are better off with clowns like Hernan Perez. Arenado is polluting my team with 107 R, 37 (!) HR, 121 (!) RBI's, .296 BA, .363 OBP, and .576 slugging.

    I am so angry that I failed to listen to #$%$'s advice and have Segura and Arenado on my teams.

    Any person who states that he would trade Nolan Arenado straight up for Hernan Perez has zero credibility.

    Zero. None, nada, nicht, zip, zilch, bagel, bupkus. You are the Yahoo fantasy message board equivalent to the homeless guy yelling at imaginary enemies. Entertaining at times? Perhaps. A useful source of information? Never.

    "HELL YES I WOULD TRADE ARENADO FOR HERNAN PEREZ." Proof positive that you have no clue about baseball, or fantasy baseball.

    The power/speed number is an analytical tool - one of many. Use the data? Sure. Treat the data as dispositive? No. For example, Upton, Myers, Desmond and Nunez do NOT have more value than Arenado. They just don't. The key flaw in the metric is that it gives equal value to a HR and a SB, when in truth the HR has vastly more value. A HR gives positive production in the HR category ... as well as R, RBI, BA, OBP and slugging. A SB gives value in ... stolen bases and perhaps OBP and BA. That's it. Why was Marte projected to be a top 35 player this season and yet ranks 68 on the Yahoo rankings despite his .304 BA and 43 SB's? Because his HR production has tanked. HR's rule the roost ... and any team which finishes a season with just 200 HR's will rank last in the category, unless you are in a 24-team league or single-league format.

    You own your boy-toy, Michael "Oh, struck out again" Taylor and his 7 HR, 14 RBI's and .222 batting average. I don't own Stanton (unfortunately), but if I did, I would have his 52 R's, 25 HR's, 70 RBI's. I think those numbers are just a tad better than the human windmill, Michael Taylor, has produced - ever.

  • TK from LA TK from LA Aug 17, 2016 10:57 AM Flag

    His season ended due to injury. But it bears noting that in the 48 games after you compared Stanton to Mendoza, he posted 30 R, 13 HR, 41 RBI, .299/.361/.582, for an OPS of .943. Great call on comparing him to Mendoza, genius.

    Rockies called up David Dahl, a talented OF'er who combines power, speed, and batting average, and who will be playing in Coors and probably batting ahead of Nolen Arrenado. Dahl will play DH against Baltimore, but is going to stay when the Rockies deal one of the starting OF'ers (either Blackmon or CarGo), so if he is available in your league, pick him up.

  • TK from LA TK from LA Jul 19, 2016 1:07 PM Flag

    Yes, yes, yes. You note that you will have very good players on your bench if you make the deal. Okay, so add Springer to your line-up, then deal another starter and have Villar take over that spot. You will be dealing a top-flight hitter and can get a very good arm in return. Package a solid bat and Bauer for a top-tier SP'er. That way, you wind up with an elite arm, and Springer, and Villar.

    If you are getting Goldschmidt: Yes, obviously.
    If you are dealing Goldschmidt: No, no, no, no, no.

    Among the players you list, Gomez, Lester are definitely not keepers. Also, with just 7 keepers, protect HITTING above all else. You will find much better SP'ers on the FA wire in late April and early May than you will find hitting, until the top rookies are brought up in mid-June. (Examples in 2016 - Aaron Sanchez, Pomerantz, Rich Hill, Michael Fulmer, Junior Guerra, etc. You can darn near build a pitching staff with top-producing free agents.)

    You might be able to convince me that protecting Carrasco makes sense. That leaves six other spots - Bryant, Encarnacion, Marte, Harper are a given. That means you can and should protect Conforto and Moncada both. Problem solved.

    P.S. You don't have any other hitters now on your team that are top-75 players?

    If your league has Josh Bell available, add him and store him on the bench for a couple of weeks. Watched his 3 plate appearances this weekend, and was very impressed. First at-bat in the bigs, smokes an Arrietta slider into right-center for a single. Second big-league at-bat, got a fastball a tick above the belt and crushed a 445' HR out of PNC park. Third plate appearance, worked an 0-2 count into a 9-pitch walk.

    The kid has excellent strike recognition, a low K rate in the minors and very good power that is now on display. He is also a switch-hitter who has pounded both left and right-handed pitching this season in the minors. Kid is going to be a force ... if he is available, you better pick him up while you have the chance, since in about 2 weeks, he is the Pirates starting 1st baseman and a guy who is going to give better production than any other FA out there.

    Just offered trade??

    Worried about Cutch. Waaaaay too many K's and lazy fly balls to CF. That said, Seager is too valuable to deal in a dynasty league. He is just 22 years old and on pace for 100 R, 30 HR, 85 RBI, .300 BA. When he is 25 years old, he is very likely to produce massive counting stats - as in, game-changing numbers from the SS position. Swanson is a pretty good player, but will never hit 35 HR's or drive in a 100 runs.

    Glasnow or Giolito

    by ec2tc3 Jul 6, 2016 3:56 PM
    TK from LA TK from LA Jul 6, 2016 5:18 PM Flag

    Pirates are going to bounce Glasnow around a bit before putting him in the starting rotation for keeps. Taillon will come off the DL later this month and return to the rotation, and Cole is about 10 days away from returning as well. When both are back, I unfortunately believe that the Pirates will stick with the horrendous Jonathan Niese in their rotation, over Glasnow and Kuhl and Brault and about 10 other guys who are better than the God-awful Jonathan Niese.

    I saw that. I read that for some reason, the Nationals are "satisfied" with the awful Danny Espinosa at SS.

    Player A: 23 R, 6 HR, 12 RBI's, 10 SB's, .236/.271/.393
    Player B: 25 R, 13 HR, 32 RBI's, 0 SB's, .211/.311/.437

    Which player has more fantasy value?

  • TK from LA TK from LA Jun 23, 2016 5:58 PM Flag

    "Marisnick is better than Springer."

    Let's see ...

    Player A 13 R, 1 HR, 6 RBI's, 3 SB, .180 BA
    Player B 49 R, 15 HR, 41 RBI's, 6 SB, .260 BA

    Guess which is which. You were saying?
