Who do you have a good feeling about this year.


Which projected 1st rounder do you think will have the best year.

Who will out perform their ADP

Which rookie/newbie will be the steal of the draft.

Any sleepers you want to discuss?

Any new "steals" guys this year? 50 plus steals.


Who you staying away from...
I am drafting 8th  
robbieballs2003 : 3/20/2017 9:11 pm : link
I am hoping someone unexpected falls but if not I am contemplating Harper.
If anyone has a slot open  
StingerProf : 3/20/2017 9:42 pm : link
Please, let me know. Looking to get into any money league possible.

Sorry the miller, and thanks!

I think Trout is the safe pick to have the best year. His greatness has gotten to the point of being mundane.

Harper has got to be the highest upside player this year. I don't know if
He'll escape the first round, but even with a late first round pick he could
easily end up putting up close to 2015 numbers again and be a top 3 player all said and done.

I am not drafting Wil Myers or Brian Dozier with a first 4 round pick. Myers just got paid and doesn't seem like the most consummate professional. Dozier is begging to regress to his first half 2016 stats. No thank you to both

Benintendi is a stud. I like Moncada even though he might K a lot. Greg Bird might have some real value. Jose Abreu might be a bit under valued. Kevin Gausman may finally put it all together for a full season

My late 1st round guy this year in a 10 team league is Machado. Can play 3b or SS.

My league is now a 10 team so I am hoping foe a pick between 3-7. If Machado is gone at 7 I will highly concede sided Harper or Donaldson
for affordable steals. I'd recommend Peraza on the Braves.

One of my pitching sleepers is Matt Moore on the SF Giants. I think settling in for a full year there, he could have a very nice season.

Agree on Benintendi, his ADP is real low for the opportunities he'll get in that offense. Disagree on Myers, I just think it was the first time he was healthy for a long period.
Was just looking at the pre-draft rankings for yahoo  
rasbutant : 3/21/2017 8:41 am : link
and they have Clayton Kershaw as the #1 pick.

So i checked ESPN and their Top 300 cheat sheet has him listed as #10.

Big difference in opinion!

lol. dammit. I knew that of course. Been tracking the guy since the minors when he was a Brave farmhand. More coffee for me.

Still, I think the guy is gonna have a really good year and this is probably the last year you can get him relatively cheaply.

Yeah, I've been looking at grabbing him in the late single digit rounds. His ADP is around 110.
also, post injury sleeper is Lance Lynn.  
Heisenberg : 3/21/2017 9:09 am : link
Cards are always good and he's been very good in camp coming off TJ surgery.
2 pitchers I am considering adding that went undrafted...  
arcarsenal : 3/21/2017 9:33 am : link
Lance Lynn and Michael Wacha.

Lynn is coming off TJ and Wacha has been very disappointing after a brilliant start to his career.

I'd probably be dropping Blake Snell (awful spring so far but has potential) to add either. Pull the trigger? And if so, which guy would be a better add?
Mitch  
DanMetroMan : 3/21/2017 9:40 am : link
Haniger, Keon Broxton are 2 of my sleepers
Also,  
arcarsenal : 3/21/2017 9:42 am : link
Looks like Koda Glover is probably going to be the Nats closer if anyone is looking for closer help.

I got Peraza in the last round of my 25 round draft. We drafted real early this year (2 weeks ago) so many of the sleeper lists hadn't gone out, but I noticed his lefty righty splits last year were real good. Pretty happy about it now, seeing as he's sky rocketing up the ADP list.

arcarsenal : 3/21/2017 9:50 am : link
Actually, forget Lynn/Wacha.. taking a flyer on Haniger instead. Dropped Snell to do it but I need more hitting. I have plenty of pitching.
Mariners  
DanMetroMan : 3/21/2017 12:16 pm : link
have a lot of players but I dunno, I'm feeling Haniger. Changed his approach, having a huge spring, low k rate. I could see him having a really nice breakout (former Met pick no less).
Anyone know of a site  
bigbluehoya : 3/21/2017 4:25 pm : link
Where I can find a (preferably cheatsheet-style) projection of starting lineups by team?

I'm on board. I did some digging and there's a lot to like.

I won't have trouble replacing a guy like Blake Snell (looks awful this spring) anyway even if Haniger bombs.
Someone already dropped Urias in my league...  
arcarsenal : 3/23/2017 6:25 pm : link
Might scoop him up...

These are my pitchers:

SP: Kershaw, Cueto, Carlos Martinez, Roark, Duffy, Velasquez, Bundy, Gsellman
RP: Britton, Herrera, Allen, Ramos, Glover

I'm not sure if Glover is definitely even going to be the Nats closer.. but if he is I kind of like being completely loaded there because I have spots where I can slot them all on most days and am going to rack up a shitload of points from saves.

I could probably drop Gsellman.. I'm probably being a homer there.

Thoughts?
Just a site note..

It's a re-draft league for now. So there's no keeper appeal. It's all about this season.

What's up with Polanco and this shoulder discomfort?
They

are downplaying it claiming it's from "overwork" but who knows?
Otani?

We can even draft HS players if we choose to.

Wow. I'm in a huge 24 team extremely deep dynasty but we can only draft players that are drafted or international players that have signed. If we draft an amateur that is drafted but he goes to school instead, we still get to keep the player on our roster.
Thoughts on my team?
