Lucas Giolito to debut tonight vs. NYM. Should be fun to watch.


And even if they do pan out eventually in Ottoneu it’s not worth the roster spot for 3 years. You really need to identify guys that are going to move quickly through their respective systems because by the time a player develops for 3 years much of his surplus value is gone by the time he hits the big leagues.


Lots of K’s and lots of walks coming tonight I think.

Re: Gourriel: the guy will either be worth $2 or $20 with multi positional eligibility post season. If I have $20-30 in cap I just want to make sure I win the guy. I can always cut him post Season.


Just based on the time of year we’re in, where there’s a lot of rebuilding teams with a lot of cash on hand and the chance to take big risks, I’d bet the average values on Guerriel now are in the $10-$15 range.


If you have $20 in cap space or more You should be bidding $20 on him. There should not be a single league out there where anyone let’s this guy get auctioned south of $10.


More prospects getting the call up Monday 7/25/16: Alex Bregman ($3.0 Average Ottoneu price), and David Dahl ($3.5).


Bregman is a beast (.330 wOBA Steamer projection RoS)


Bregman has certainly not hit like a beast (his Steamer wOBA RoS projection is down to .314!), but fellow 2015 draftee Andrew Benintendi is getting the call today (Steamer RoS projection of a .337 wOBA).


Orlando Arcia also getting the call today


It’s been a pretty rough start for Arcia so far.


Bregman started out slow too but he’s been a monster lately:


And speaking of being on :fire:, here are the last 10 games for NYY Gary Sanchez:

Per @bdmorris.jr he’s already 3rd in WAR among AL catchers (behind only Lucroy and Sandy Leon) through just 21 G.

This is why you should never invest in catching prospects, right? :wink:


Small sample, but the pitches/PA is an interesting (and promising) stat to keep an eye on from rookie Josh Bell


More on Josh Bell:


In 46 IP since late June (last 10 appearances), Urias is just north of 5.0 P/IP. Impressive.


More good news on Josh Bell: he will now be OF eligible in 2017

@jjdouglas did a nice job of breaking down Josh Bell on this recent podcast
