  • Scalious: Gotta make contact though...not sure about these Light tower power hitter and those Milb K rates
    Today at 01:03:28 AM
  • Corey: We're on the same page Scalious
    Today at 01:04:40 AM
  • redbeard82: i think gallo is going to be somewhat different
    Today at 01:05:59 AM
  • redbeard82: he could be a .230 30+HR guy in an age when .230 isn't all that terrible, especially if you walk
    Today at 01:06:28 AM
  • Eric: Corey, were you able to complete that text?
    Today at 01:06:33 AM
  • Brent: I hear y'all, but I could really care less about K's.  I know some league on here favor OBP while others lean toward actual production not just getting on base.
    Today at 01:07:01 AM
  • nmrch: Joey Gallo = Juan Francisco
    Today at 01:07:14 AM
  • redbeard82: if it's not a points league then the k rate won't really matter too much for fantasy purposes
    Today at 01:07:58 AM
  • redbeard82: i suppose that's raising the ante over mike olt at least
    Today at 01:08:19 AM
  • nmrch: and to be fair to Juan, Gallo's AA K rate is still higher than Juan worst year in the bigs
    Today at 01:08:48 AM
  • Brent: For example, this guy sucks, yet he was a good fantasy performer.  :puke: [link]
    Today at 01:08:58 AM
  • Scalious: Brent..thing I worry about is you know the K rate usually rises when they make the majors. Name me a hitter that as survived on a 40% K rate.
    Today at 01:10:14 AM
  • redbeard82: not like we should let gallo have an adjustment period or anything ;)
    Today at 01:10:26 AM
  • nmrch: the K rate might not matter for fantasy purposes but teams don't give playing time to a guy that will K 50% of the time
    Today at 01:10:48 AM
  • nottathedaddy: Mark Reynolds= Joey Gallo
    Today at 01:11:59 AM
  • nmrch: a good TTO guy can put up decent overall numbers as long as the K rate stays in the low 30's
    Today at 01:12:10 AM
  • nmrch: Gallo is projected to K in the mid 40's or maybe even 50%
    Today at 01:13:02 AM
  • redbeard82: after all the growth gallo showed between last year and this year, it amazes me that struggles at AA get him written off so quickly.
    Today at 01:13:36 AM
  • chrisetc21: He's 20 years old, not 25
    Today at 01:13:45 AM
  • redbeard82: dude should have just finished what? his sophomore year of college?
    Today at 01:13:56 AM
  • nmrch: Reynold's minor league K rate is around 25%
    Today at 01:14:07 AM
  • redbeard82: and instead he posted an .850 OPS at AA?
    Today at 01:14:14 AM
  • nmrch: and his major league career K rate of 32%is already pushing the limits of TTO
    Today at 01:15:01 AM
  • nottathedaddy: I think it a team thing, Most of the Rangers prospects have the same problem.
    Today at 01:15:13 AM
  • Ace: joey gallo's a rich man's patrick wisdom ;-)
    Today at 01:15:22 AM
  • nmrch: Gallo would have to make huge strides in contact rate just to get to the level of  Adam Dunn/Mark Reynolds
    Today at 01:16:13 AM
  • redbeard82: haha. patrick wisdom is a homeless man's patrick wisdom
    Today at 01:17:23 AM
  • nmrch: look at Javier Baez, he never even crossed the 30% mark in the minors and he's having severe problems with making contact
    Today at 01:17:35 AM
  • redbeard82: i mean yes. i agree gallo is terrible and brent should trade him to me immediately.
    Today at 01:18:13 AM
  • redbeard82: baez has a long history of needing a long adjustment period though when moving levels.
    Today at 01:18:36 AM
  • Scalious: Yeah..Gallo has youth on his side
    Today at 01:18:51 AM
  • nmrch: i'm not as pessimistic on Baez though, atleast as a fantasy player
    Today at 01:18:54 AM
  • Scalious: He can always improve
    Today at 01:18:57 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, I know he sucks.  I saw where Bryant needs to go play in Korea and be a side show, let's trade them for each other straight up.
    Today at 01:19:15 AM
  • nmrch: you can get away with a lot if you hit 25HR's and steal 20
    Today at 01:19:21 AM
  • redbeard82: and a lot of this is mike trout syndrome where ow when top prospects struggle they're no good. we think they should all immediately be near their ceilings.
    Today at 01:19:45 AM
  • Brent: yep
    Today at 01:19:47 AM
  • chrisetc21: Your extrapolating 68 games at Double A as a 20 year old
    Today at 01:20:14 AM
  • Brent: agreed Red.  Guys can never improve, their ceilings are what the spec experts say they are.
    Today at 01:20:27 AM
  • nmrch: im not a prospect expert at all
    Today at 01:21:47 AM
  • Scalious: Can go either way. Not gonna right off a 20 year old. That is for sure..
    Today at 01:21:53 AM
  • Scalious: write
    Today at 01:22:06 AM
  • redbeard82: well i like some of the spec experts...but when they talk ceiling, they're talking career ceiling not rookie year ceiling
    Today at 01:22:10 AM
  • redbeard82: struggles are a normal part of the prospect development
    Today at 01:22:39 AM
  • redbeard82: maddux had a 5+ ERA as a rookie i believe
    Today at 01:22:48 AM
  • redbeard82: randy johnson couldn't hit the broad side of a barn
    Today at 01:23:03 AM
  • Brent: I wasn't referring to anyone on here.  Mainly the guys who make the spec lists.  Lots of guys seem to be left off that end up doing something in the Show.
    Today at 01:23:03 AM
  • nmrch: i don't Smoking Gun about swing mechanics or anything like that
    Today at 01:23:16 AM
  • redbeard82: and jaret wright was going to be so Smoking Gun good that he couldn't be moved for pedro
    Today at 01:23:22 AM
  • Brent: I remember telling my Grandpa that Maddox would be good if he could get rid of that one bad inning that he used to have, then the next year he won the Cy Young. lol
