Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Funny...I won last week 5-4 (my thinnest margin of victory this season) with a line of:
39 R, 7 HR, 32 RBI, 8 SB, .300 BA, 9 W, 4 SV, 81 K, 2.74 ERA, 1.16 WHIP
So far this week I am leading 8-1 with a line of:
28 R, 14 HR, 24 RBI, 7 SB, .296 BA, 3 W, 4 SV, 38 K, 1.17 ERA, 0.94 WHIP
I guess it is all about how you build your team.
Ron Mitchiner, you do know you are the laughing stock of the boards right? You continue to prove this with every post. We appreciate your entertainment.
Harry, it would be better if I could make you think...not laugh. Unfortunately that will never happen.
You are doomed to be willfully ignorant and manage 10th place fantasy baseball teams.
David Peralta is a stud and anybody that says differently is misinformed. Across all recorded levels of play he is a .323 hitter (.300 MLB) and a contributor in all 5 standard fantasy baseball hitting categories.
THIRD BEST OUTFIELD WITH 22/12!!!!!!!!!!
101 RBI on the ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS!!!!!!!!!
You make me laugh and make it hard to argue with you because it's like arguing with a cat.

Bogaerts, who turned 23 on Thursday, singled in the first inning of Wednesday’s 9-5 win over the New York Yankees, passing Ted Williams for most hits by a Red Sox player before his 23rd birthday with 194. That total also was tied with Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve for most in the American League heading into Thursday’s game.
Edes also pointed out there have been just seven players in the last 40 years to have as many hits as Bogaerts at age 22 or younger, and it’s a pretty elite list. Starlin Castro, Miguel Cabrera, Albert Pujols, Alex Rodriguez, Cal Ripken Jr., Garry Templeton and George Brett were the last to do it. Brett and Ripken are Hall of Famers, and a couple of those guys might join them someday.

So...Peralta gets hurt...Socrates Brito comes off the bench...slaps a single and steals a base. I do some research on Brito...
...gotta say...I love Brito. If he gets some regular playing time somewhere he is a future top 100 fantasy baseball bat.
Of the two...I would go with Conley.
However, nothing says you have to make your last move today. You still have Friday and Saturday to make moves and decide on the Saturday and Sunday matchups (which may be more favorable).
You continue to show why you managed a stellar 10th place finish this year. Congratulations! You're an idiot!!!
Yes. David Peralta...the extra base hitting machine in Arizona. The third best player on that team (behind top 10 players Pollock and Goldschmidt). The second best OF on the third best OF in baseball.
Peralta has compiled his stats in just 461 AB (thus far). You give his stats a 30% bump to get to 600 AB like many of those in the top 20 and his current line of 61 R, 17 HR, 78 RBI, and 9 SB becomes a line of 79 R, 22 HR, 101 RBI, 12 SB. That will play every day.
Peralta has 53 XBH in his 461 AB this season. Give him 600 AB and that becomes 69 XBH...read: more than Nelson Cruz and Mookie Betts have right now.
Math, logic...learn it...love it...live it.
I can't condone owning Arenado. The bat is good but there is no reason for a 3B not to be stealing 10 bases a season. I traded Arenado before the season started and I am not at all displeased. I can make exceptions in Donaldson's case because he at least gives some base stealing efforts (on the back half of double steals).
McCutchen is all about the consistency. He is kind of like a new age Bobby Abreu. Heck...Kirk Gibson was a 20/20 player per 162 game averages.
My 2016 top 10? Right now?
The next ten would be: Marte, Altuve, Blackmon, Lindor, Rosario, Cabrera, Wong, Eaton, Cain, D. Peralta in some kind of order.
