BK432's Achievements

  1. Hard not to like what Cade Povich has done so far this year. Pitching well at high A at a reasonably young age and hitting 97 shows that his velo is up a tick. Wouldn't be surprised to see his FV grade rise to a 40+ or 45 if this is indicative of how the rest of the year goes. Possible Top 15 Twins prospect next year.
  2. I'm happy Buxton took the deal he did, but part of me remains surprised he didn't respond similarly to the Twins' offer in real life as he did to your OOTP 7/$100M offer.
  3. I agree with the sentiment that what was proposed probably isn't enough, but: a) Trueblood didn't finish putting the deal together, he was just highlighting the integral pieces; and I think people are really UNDERVALUING the compensatory pick I doubt this is as far off as several believe it to be. Some people posting what they think the Reds would demand might be right - they might demand it as a starting point, but to think that Alex Kirilloff would need to be included is a tad absurd. 6 years of Kirilloff for 3 of Castillo is a loss before you go any further. And the Reds would know that.
  4. I think this is where we lose a bit in translation as fans. Categorizing Kirilloff as a guy with no games above AA is both true but also direly in need of context. He did spend the entire summer in St. Paul and got to hit and play simulated games at what was more or less a AAA level. All accounts of that time that I've read is that he was the best player there. We didn't get to see that or evaluate that, but the Twins did. I have no angst about the decision - they may still decide to manipulate service time. But I also don't see it as a stretch that he very well is the right guy for the job now.
  5. Plenty of representation on the Top 133 released on FG today - they do 133 to include everyone who is a 50 FV or better. Canterino has a 50 as was previously mentioned here but falls outside the top 100. Everyone else (Kirilloff, Lewis, Larnach, Jeffers, Balazovic, Duran) is in the top 82. https://blogs.fangraphs.com/2021-top-100-prospects/
  6. He has them 5th. He had them 13th last year, so that's nice movement. Mentions a trio of potential mid-rotation starters, including Canterino with Duran and Balazovic. He projects we'll slip a bit next year with Kirilloff, Jeffers and maybe 1 or 2 others graduating, but probably still inside the top 10 in 2022. Promising.
  7. I'd place the odds that Nick Gordon is DFA'd before ever playing an MLB game at 60/40 or better. I'm surprised at the number of people who think he's close.
  8. Bundy is not good and isn't going to be good. This trade won't matter to either team.
  9. I'd try spelling his name correctly; that could help.
  10. I love posts like these. It's always fun to go through the thought exercise. I really don't think they'll do anything until they get 32 teams, and then they'll go to 4 divisions or (gasp!) 8 like the NFL. Regardless, my only criticism is that MLB would never, ever, ever break up the Cubs and the Cardinals. Literally a 0% chance that would happen.
  11. As an NL fantasy baseball player, I've been a huge fan of Yates the past couple years. He's seriously good and worth consideration. Good writeup.
