It's time for the second game over the radio doubleheader I believe there are big constitutional amendment. Outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter inside story on May smaller and more. I'm a very subtle color screwball threw those gold led. Has look like if Hillary I imagine the good draw drops the table field bail out got to stick others have planned. This is the hot corner. Of terrorism when Jun 1085 hit that I held around as if you didn't okay. Welcome me into these second hour of the hot core nerd. Got a bunch of fantasy baseball coming up next. In reading catcher super sink interview. Live just chat and Japanese Baseball which. On the fan tech sign a 55 through five says so it sounds like Japanese they baseball more than Americans do. Maybe so that would be a very obvious yes you can find you can find they interview with us on an odd 1080 the fan. At Twitter. Pat Timmy the phantom. I'm still so young and this stuff nipped at Tenet the fan. Tenet defend dot com I treated it. Thanks so it's on its on the tweeters out migrants won seven as mine M three's their loved that the terrible about that Twitter stuff and I'm working on and I'm in better America's you go through phases where you tweet for like. A week yeah and then you disappear for like two months then now it's terrible. Loss for the 72 view they're looking enemy tanks I appreciate it. America's 40 gives Puerto Rico in the bottom of the fist stroman still on the mound. Thank you Marcus stroman. His mother you know it yet but did you know his old old really. You just gonna drop that why Sotomayor to it's odorless and you have heard it well wasn't all grown very. Mark stroman did you hear about this his mom is Puerto Rican I did hear about this and he could've played from Puerto Rico in decided to play for America well yeah. As cool mom am assuming. He has speed feels more connected to America's were grew up right nobody could have played Puerto Rico correct that was one thing that. Really kind of rubbed me the wrong way and not in race or prejudice come away but that's what kind of rub me the wrong way with Alex Reid gets. He Clinton to make an outside. Rugged and know you were born in Miami and brother did at the broad didn't expect and he is Brody yes broad did. Well no let's walk road you just bad. Good for you A-Rod I hate you but good for you yeah but I know you were born in Miami im born and raised in America lake lake let's not just joined the familiar and well because they're stacked. Well look look look. I will I would give him in any player that sized it up benefit of the doubt if you feel bear more culturally tied it fair to the DR piazza played for Italy fair right if you feel more culturally tied to you. That country I would play for Ireland. Would you over the US nobody would let them know I blame for USA but. I think there's players who feel more poultry type too because they're their parents are probably from there midnight visited there all the time to visit mentally in the you know you you live in the US but your from Dominican Republic where is mark stroman is from the US has mom just happens to be Puerto Rican. So I mean that's the difference. Another thing that I thought was really cool and wanna go back to something we talked about last hour. In. In that dean tins are thing you know I don't want a bag too much on any Kinsler because I don't like him. So I don't wanna sound super by sea you know I'm extremely bias against him. What kind of talk about just kind of the flavor of the vibe or get from this. How cool is it that Carlos Beltran decided to dye his facial hair bleach it. He decided to bleach his facial hair. And now every one of Puerto Rico has some form they're bleached well. I think that as usual we'll have they'll try to started it I think it's. I'm not it was just the team decided to whichever ones here and don't trump bald sewage is police his facial hair sticks it to me it seemed like it was. But Carlos Beltran thing now might not be correct look look I'm willing to admit that I mightn't it might not have been Carlos Belcher rounds idea. But I'm going to say that it was Carlos Beltran is idea I don't think it is because his beard looks terrible at least so creepy and. It's like I saw I saw it for the first time in like a highlight of one of the games are played an armored worked on was in the flash tomb in the dugout. And I'm white. What is on your face Pacifica. First of all is an Yankee for two years so I died didn't you didn't even seen him for a while you haven't seen a bleached what I've been hearing him psalms facial hair because there's no official nearly Brian McCann sporting a beard again which is weird. Because he's been to yankees for you remember moustache on the Yankees you can but. I just looked at and went that's that can't be here. I can't be facial hair we remember they were like drawing in his hair in Texas is slow steered that was just I don't believe they were drawing it and I think that was him trying. To paint his head and it looked terrible. Like Carlos Boozer tried that if you remember an enemy and I remember that it was awful so bad don't do that but seeing it I was like I. I was like why. Why is your feet to big glue something to your. Until moose are both certain terrorist attack and those tubes c'mon now and clearly he depletion and SR what have police there of course people players who are full has a hairdo like the styling with it Jumbotron just left with the awkward bleached not even full beard thing going on. Was die hard Indians fan frank you indoor has bleached tips of his hair he is great and he's going anyway Allen Crabbe Marcus mark root. No no no he is not the O'Dell Beckham junior he knows I'm an EA it's O Dell started that by the way yes she did. But Frankie always had belittled the tips of his bleach like I wish I had when I was in middle school in 1997. But so he's probably okay he's cycle everybody's bleach and something cool on did not but I wanna give more a little more in depth and that is that nine. Really cool oh it's also an all those guys band together to do that it's awesome it's great it shows a true. Camaraderie it reminds me of like the old four. And immediate so I know you don't wanna talk about this but the village of idiots that were up in Boston you know taller I know I know but they all grew beards sand. They look terrible hole. Take a look like dive bar special I greeted dude looked terrible yes they sure you know damion we days. Rigorous so is any relief then because he sounded the Yankees and who has cabin below are in them alarm Bill Miller. And crosses I'm intimidated Pedroia was it was tears there that will Pedroia was there as a young kid Ricky bearded himself yet but he's always bearded and somebody Damon was a big one that's all of dot com I mean pop he's got to try hear about the glam slam he hit off hobby to ask don't forget in 2003 Pedro had really short hair. And you know four he had the girls coming up the back like damn near Jerry curl up. I it's awesome it is awesome that it's been something that's been kind of interest in about this term and you met you mentioned income was comers today saying Matt. It's not wrong. The US just does it differently. Yea let's and I guess they were raised differently right you it sounded racist it very much sounded like race tries to save because I think he realized what he was saying. And whether or not he's racist I don't wanna get into I don't wanna get and we don't know. But the point he's making is that he. And I'm assuming other people on the USA team must agree with him think that what the Puerto Rican players and Dominican players in the Venezuelan players Federer doing. Is. Wrong. Or at least is pour sportsmanship. And I couldn't disagree more with I think that's what. We talked about the social before baseball needs more Manny Machado is embrace Harper's and players that are willing to go crazy out there on the field and have fun. Harper wore the trump basket make baseball great again hat like they want to. Make baseball fun league baseball on again and if Kinsler saying that it's like the Brian McCann syndrome. But I loved McCain on the Yankees but I hate ginger Pierzynski was always like this are you hated that he was like big daddy baseball and police right. No you can't you can't have fun out here we have to follow certain federal behest. Baseball needs to have some fun out there it's okay for certain players to believe that that's where you should play. But don't try to police other players to play differently. It should be encouraged for teams to be this excited about a single not see him there on the hedged item. Golf clap beat. Good single good single I'd be happy that you just got like what's his face. On whatever blank team won every one of Phil and has been over 21 he hits a single first first him three weeks and everyone goes knots that's what you should see. As long as you're not showing up book pitcher in the batter's box. You know as long as when you hit a home run you don't just stand there and watch it and talked trash to the picture on the mound but when you're in the dugout when you're on first wedding night. Why not like I am you know me I'm kind of anti a bad flu. Well really you're anti Jose about it I made contact Jose Batista big time but I'm kind of anti bat flip because of these kind of shows up the pitcher. But if you're not in the box if you're not in the batter's box. Be crazy go wild. And that's why I think I'm anti. The bat flip is because in the box you need to give it. You need to get it and do something to help your team and if you've done that once you leave the batter's box go crazy. Police are as as as Jack but Jesus say go crazy. What we saw that cost the Netherlands a base runner forget who was but he was like clapping and cheering off first base and got picked him off. Yeah he jerks until far what has a heart knows who's an open coming potential all well but. Let's slowdown he was up and coming fighters and now I'm using now hopefully he gets to be anything in the MLB in India trade asset may be right he was supposed to be like the best shortstop from baseball for years ago yes. And if you showboat and too much you get thrown out. But see that's where this enters the retaliation conversation. Because you're discussing that flips standing at the picture of Sarah IM. I'm not really wanted to against it I enjoy the unwritten rules of baseball I think it's cool there's a code issue it's it's cool that there's from the secretive about it's a big part of the game but. It's I think it's also okay that a pitcher can retaliate and say San Jose Batista. Stands in the box of myers' home run flips is that slowly jogged to first base kind of thing. You better believe someone on the team should be thrown out of next next time foal at the head. Well it has is so bad nominees I don't like but Houston but. People hate that I'd like in starved people hate that pitchers and retaliate for that but. I mean not should be allowed to hit it it should be more of an open emotional game it shouldn't be behind this closed. Speaking nice face of all we're playing baseball we all love each other monopoly as rules like if your emotional. Took him be emotional we see it seep out in you know bench clearing. Koren quote Ben's clearing brawls right which we need to see more and had to make that makes every game more interesting it's a long season it's a grind. Sometimes it's hard to watch 201. Because it's not exactly the most interesting match up but if you see back on the my weekly basis at least maybe not daily a key to a more interest and. Within the diamond to keep their professional. When you're out of the diamond. You wild. Why not. Why not. The fans are getting while behind you. If you're running to second don't run to second in light swing. Fanned out rally towel I'm not saying that. Police slide into second. And then that the call is made in your safe. Give me a little clap Camille Little Jorge Posada and Matsui on sect have what I do and that little. I'm right in the air and it you've gone over 21 and you get a single and yet pointy eared Doug did the Pedro point. And again as of the dugout they're they've created some sort of what ever hand signal they wanna give me do that just in the box. Don't show open pitcher. Is Richard it. In the league get to first and you and so I think that would fix the game without hurt in the unwritten rules I don't think you would fix the game I think you would help. I don't know about brings everybody back in buy into it help pursue. Is this eleventh inning runner on second stuff Maine open anything but that's for another day when we come back. It's about time we do fantasy baseball I got to draft this weekend mice got a draft. Fantasy baseball's next it's 816 on Portland sports leader 1080 the fan. Say Tony one here on 1080 in the van and. The hot corner would do as bad boy every single Wednesday night I have this new song I am so excited you've heard that opened them. Visas for any seat time that ball bat but it also means that it's baseball. Yeah baseball season starts. In two Sundays from now. In in my opinion this like this World Baseball Classic not to keep talking about it but this World Baseball Classic. Is just like them Q and so today's last stage an opening Gaby tomorrow. Those commitments that I know but like I'm ready. Like watching the my dogs is ready watching Carlos Correia and Nelson Cruz and all these dudes. Playing super hard in this tournament I'm just like Joey you don't. Jimmy Gunn. A relatively ignorant so why now we're gonna dive into some fantasy and we do this stuff every single week when the baseball season's gone. She can always Texan on the fan takes on a 55305. You got any questions concerns trades. Just mean weird stuff you wanna go with. Draft questions you let us know what I hope you guys is this week in Mike is literally one of the best fantasy baseball guys have ever met in my life. And this stuff is fun to us I'm in leagues mikes and leagues but this is really cool I wanna started off with this before we get into really like. Because World Baseball Classic song and weird talking about this before getting to like best players in value and stuff like that. Is there anybody on the World Baseball Classic that is Pique your interest a little bit more into McCutcheon you mentioned him before. He's a guy who last year looked like. Crap. Average room below are below average Rihanna over a superstar. And so far and away mr. Ballmer listen I'm average. He hasn't looked back to full form I would say but we've seen him. Hidden deep line drives in the outfield to make hard contact a lot and I watched something was probably have him over an hour. Where they were focusing. On his. Elbow his his hitting elbow the one that faces the picture. So his left elbow and they were showing comparisons from 20152006. Team doesn't fifteen it was very close to his body barely moved. 2016 it was tennis blade out it was a little further from his chest and because about a kind of slowed to a slowdown as for his swing and they were showing men in the World Baseball Classic it's back to being on his chest. And he kind of he kind of figured out it fixed it he's making good contact that's a guy that I think originally I might have tried to avoid them at all costs after what happened last year. And honestly I still might try to avoid it. Sorry if well. I think though that after watching him assurance of a deal little hesitant to. Spectrum but I'm less nervous than I was before pool especially drops do you would like to. I mean McCutcheon could drop to link the fourth round. Thank you tell me you get injured coach in the fourth round it could. Again just be wary because it is not regular season baseball be wary in general Ausprey training stats in my view very flashy you might see someone like. Then we'll talk about little more regret bird for the Yankees for example hitting like a home run after home after home run hit two more today. Sounds like a Yankee kids writing me but we need nicknames for the Yankees tickets I don't like Yankee kids we need to come home with a nickname for all of them. But the killer bees and Boston. When you may well aim for the yanks come as a Yankee young infants I don't know if the killer bees is nurtured it Bim iconic called the map. I know I number I mean lay out later Lincoln diaper dandy kind of thing for the yanks. It's a put down these bad news. There's a lot of good kids. There as well open throughout won't won't watch and see what kind of threw it kind of happens but up. It's it's hard to judge pre season performance as a way to see other gonna do in the season but for. There are potential it's pretty good I wholeheartedly agree I mean I would not look at stats in spring training the only reason IA. Brought up McCutcheon was because of the World Baseball Classic. And I think those guys are actually trying really hard. Head chef who is. Somebody had mentioned on the show frequently. Couple years ago in the lately around and held them as a keeper last year and I didn't think he played very well right now looks like a steel. And that is if this man is available and you can get him in the second third maybe even fourth round Christian yell lynch looks. Really nice depends how big your league is I think there's going to be a lot of outfielders ranked ahead of him so like reach for Hemmer anything but it here and keeper league if he's available. Wrap him. Because what I've seen in this World Baseball Classic again it's pre season like Mike said. Don't don't put too much into that basket. But man he is batted third in America line up the entire. Heard a man and has looked really good ball right now according to ESPN. Released him this cheat sheet that I pulled up he used to be fourteenth ranked outfielder. In fairness of this prophecy and you wouldn't know that if you watch the World Baseball Classic EB like the best out feelers amazed smaller Adam Jones and Christian you alleged roadway Adam Jones looked good this tournament to Adam jones' 26 ranked out we'll see and that's crazy I was an keeper league were I was married to Adam Jones as my a number one overall and I've pretty much had to keep him. Because I was getting getting anybody better than him any keeper league in the first round. And she has looked he might be the MVP of America. Well. If you look at the authors had them well to go in order quickly Trout bats Charlie Black since third seed that's crazy Chris I Bryant. Trade turner and his Bryant qualifies Sanofi lighting so couldn't play their last year. Terry Turner same thing and Bryce Harper sixth. That's good news bad last year starling marte Nelson Cruz George springer Andrew McCutcheon AJ apology Martinez your assessment is Christian don't. Yeah but let's let's let's go let's go. JD Martinez you really put more faith in him and Adam Jones well pulverized yeah. Admitted he had fight I highly doubt bridge in RBIs. In hours. But I think you're looking at them if you're looking for points him in home runs they get Martinez true and I don't an analyst I don't disagree with your point. Yeah and I don't I'm just saying if you're looking at draft strategy. Never reach but it's always look for value. Never reached because of value will help you in the long run more than wasting a pick in the second round and a guy who think's gonna pop. When you have. I don't know Nelson Cruz sitting there but Cilic now and I don't know. I really think that. And attendees the guy this year is gonna pop. Don't you dare pick been intended if Nelson Cruz on the board just guessing what Benton is gonna be there in three rounds yeah asset value Nelson Cruz has been taken. And IA and this is such a tough year for me that I got to keep myself in check because just as I'm watching the World Baseball Classic. Doesn't mean these guys are going to be. Absolutely phenomenal c.s still relative that's that's still gonna look at the projections he's still gonna keep things in mind and will keep that train go and as we dive into little more. Little more fantasy baseball means more dire seven about eased a clear look at that were gonna sleep in on. Leave it to that next but first here's Mike was sports. This is above hot corner where there is some way and John to an AB Beltran. You know as much as I love Joseph. I kind of wish it was his bumper music for us takes me back. We just in the old days my corners just you and me the problem is we only have like seven bumper songs he that there are all great effort to reach you Billick. I don't know man every time I hear this song I get down. May assume the play his name. Of course. Did you better than we own you will. Mueller has resolved soon and they get which under some fantasy baseball right now as we're gonna. Kind of start rampant this bad boy up we'll do it every single week at 830. Right is that when we usually do that because about overdo it and then next week we'll both have draft to discuss yeah I I have. A non keeper league draft on Saturday and keeper league draft on Sunday. I tried to reach out to my good friend Mike. About one that I should do and he decided not to respond to. Let. I asked you I was like I'm deciding between these nine players I had to choose six. He's got crickets. I guarantee you do not I'm just crickets. Crickets as I go to my phone but I wanna look at some of this old some some of this I come look at that the best player rankings of Tony seventeen and I mean thank goodness. And I'm looking at the top. If teen. There's only one pitcher on it two pitchers excuse me. And if that was my first round pick I'd probably be free be OK with any of the attention after that you got a text from you asking. Weren't flown descended to be incorrect Mike you might have or urged to get her I mean that is true I could have sentenced Greg remind you talk about the pitchers at the top. No I originally got growing threat I was stunned by the the top fifteen. Projected to. Best fantasy players there's only two pitchers on it which makes sense because you can fill pitching spots. At any moment. I may MA based sit com and predictions of actual points and wrote. Rotisserie stats based based on what your Dylan but generally. In most leagues the picture is not quite as vital now I play in the point's league it's the same one I'm in now with two years ago the pitcher points work. Insanity. So you have to load up on pitchers and you were just Dominique that's part of the reason while womanly barriers I just had like seven good starters. And we know get 20/20 points even in a loss to readjust to the point the bullets make them once dominant last year but. It is a certainly you can keep an eye on madam CF. See if that's gonna help you but generally. Early on my strategy is always. Go hitter hitter hitter hitter. Picture yet because the depth of starting pitcher is much greater than a certain position. And don't touch a closer until at least the sixth seventh round yeah. It really depends on your league again sometimes I grab a close if I have a really good 1234. All gravel closer to fifth in the fifth round I mean. But it's like top I have a top top closer I have played it the no closer strategy before writers go. Good hold guys. And that that's one team won't charge them play before but and make him back to buy because you just lose the saves category completely you just don't. You don't have the option to. To get a saves you lose it category and so. So I don't Matta doesn't really work when you can try to attitude like I've but I would say is the closer position is very fickle a lot of the times there's some really really good closers they don't have the we expect them to. Other times there's guys like Edwin Diaz who I wasn't even drafted last year pretend he's probably gonna go super hi this right here but he goes turns into an elite closer. And you can get them off the waiver wire so that's a position. Or I don't feel the need to get a guy about high. I always try to load upon on great hitters early on. Because they're the guys are gonna play almost every day they're the guys herniated most consistent point right there the guys you lean on the most. Last year I drafted. Only ten person league but I drafted. Eighth or ninth. To pick nine it took many rich Otto pick eleven I took Andrew McCutcheon. The cut didn't work out but you know and then I was happy I was like man I got to the best hitters. My first two picks you know yeah you didn't know that was gonna go down then right of course so that's that's another thing is that's why we say hitters first. You can draft Kershaw if you want. You'll be police is always stays healthy he'll believe for you can almost guarantee the very safe pick. But you lose out on the top position players about where you can get. I don't know maybe four. Maybe you can get Bob garner and you can get Sonny gray the two of them won't give you what her shock. Little more than what Herschel can give yourself that that's kind of the way I look at it draft try to do us. Right now I'm looking on the ad the top ranked players on fantasy throws dot com. Baseball and they're in the fifteen there's only two starters will go on starting from the top of one Mike Trout that's too. Jose L two day three iron I know fold Schmidt Bryant. Kershaw as the first pitcher there at seven but that's assuming he pitches Ol season right which. Generally he has right in with the exception last year I mean I I think gerchas usually save bad aid is rich shot though. And then the harper. Donald's saying that result. Miki Cabrera still make in the top fifteen I loved that man who last year he hit 316. Paint and got 38 homer I hate that tiger's the man that dude keeps landing. A thirteen. Charlie Black men. Everybody's on this Charlie Black insuring them it'd be the first to tell you. Do not draft early you know high draft I'm with you now as a card carrying wanna be fan boy of the Colorado Rockies I him. There is no way I'm taking Charlie Black men over Carlos Gonzalez. So no way. Get out a year and I'm not listening to you I'm done so here's what I will say fourteen scherzer pitching is correct. Blackmon was incredible last year do you relate he couldn't eat she's 32429. Home runs 82 RBIs. He was he was boy you know however two years ago. There was a certain Colorado Iraqi outfielder who was a very flashy and talked about quite a bit. A lot of people drafted him his name was Charlie Black men. He didn't play very well last year he was ignored it because the Iraqis had 76 outfielders if it. And still have 76 well not so much does Ian Desmond Curtis and red blood so just be wary. When you see guys late last year. We saw Jackie Bradley junior ranks really high and it's when you see a player for the first time ranked that high I'm always very nervous. To take them. Because you wanna go with a sure bet like Miguel Cabrera is a sure bet. It's a sure bet I mean we have you might see eight hurt we have to CD Klein from them at some point. But 31438. Home runs and what ninety plus RBIs I imagine. Like I wanted to nearly as how many hundred me I don't even have to look at the stats and I assume he had over ninety RBIs so the thing with Guerrero is. He should keep declined. Already right but he still machine. So that's plummets a little bit weird but what's more of the machine then they'll machines yes. When you Selig McCutcheon right last year while early two years ago we're sort of seeing signs of decline. PM that's the warning now we don't know if it's gonna to bounce back we just talked about him maybe being good traffic picture. But we haven't seen it with Cabrera and that's why he's still up there is a solid pick you know what you're gonna get with him. They're India consistent walks singles doubles homers everything as long as he stays healthy I guess that's by the only concern is getting older. This can stay healthy but. You know you. Moles on iPhone girl. But there's a drop and on the ground. And dropping everything and hear what trade turner on ESP in his fifteenth. On this story one and like little another one where it is a bold date turner was great last year however. However however. I'm not picking him in the first round. I don't replace the position and has less good players and in second base. And I was got multiple position in both ozone and senator mean that fed does bumpy up a little bit. Not enough first round but a bomb CL a little bit but guys trade turnaround is fear is going to have a Costco and let's be honest here you're not treatment taking trade. Herbert program. Brennan Crawford just it's a single into center field should bring him before he runs as air Donald Hosmer come in America's 60. Atop the sevens are ahead. You bring to had a Corey seeger. Carlos Correa not on this and I'm seeing visual onions if the are we come back more famous he jog this is the hot corner on 1080 the fan. Some great stuff coming across on the Atlantic side of five factor of five. Everybody become and that Charlie Black man defense. Here's one from the 36 so Blackmon has forty stolen base potential without killing you anywhere else speed tougher to find than ever. Especially important if we're doing him. Rotisserie leagues were sold bases are important definitely on my mainly using points leagues in stolen bases are just added points but not exactly as important my main is rotisserie. So that will be key for you. One Texas say he's a great player and high powered offense just not worth the top two realm peck that's Ra I was saying is he's ranks thirteenth. That means that an almost all of your least he's going to mean first or second almost into the second round but if you're a big win the first round. Don't do that but I but likely this Texas said if you sit there in the fourth you have to take all of course of course that's that's where I go back to what I said originally. It's a value peck. Fantasy sports is all about the value all in no matter what sport you're playing I mean even filling out a March Madness bracket is about. Value. You can't. You can't fall in love with a player and just go for them to doesn't make any sense how do you like a dialogue you want them. More power to you I'm never gonna tell you not to draft a player timber gonna pop or an immigrant have the best year of anybody. But just be careful where you take him because. If you don't take guy for valuing you take him for for your heart. You're gonna miss out on a top player because. You're essentially replacing I used the example. Coast is clear to you're taking Charlie Black in sector around right let's say you've got the first pick of the draft. In you'd take Mike Trout. Now comes back to you pick thirteen. If you're out there and stay trapped in a mess it up but in my head you know it is they pick thirteen comes back to you and Charlie black and there. Men and women and Greg you're gonna take Carlos Corretja because shortstop a position of need to very massive need outside of the top like spot for there's nothing you're gonna take him. And then if Blackmon is gone that sucks committee he'll be there in the third or fourth round and then maybe you can Superman Superman get them there you don't wanna lose Carlos Correa. For Charlie Black men that maybe could be there in two rounds later. Right in that you're talking about the difference between their mom having it be sleeper pick. And let's not be stupid pick. Like you can think Charlie Black made is gonna be that guy that helps you win a title. But let's not get crazy. When I was younger I wants to Reggie Bush. In the second round. Before he had never played a snap in the NFL. In a fantasy football draft and that gave me hauler. Yeah so let's not drink the Kool Aid. Let's just be Smart something that I know that I've been looking at Amman fantasy pros dot com right now just kind of looking at rankings. Among the list do you when he threw thirty. In Tel me if these are not. The most questionable. Famous scene guys you've ever heard of because it's I look at this and with the exception of two because I'm biased. I am not interest in any of them on my team has had no idea who. What they're just weird because to me among twenty to 30 AM ESP enlist and they're all sure fire draft OC and these two when he these day and I'm looking at are alike. Okay could be great. They yes you have to take them if they're available but I'm not sure if this right growth. Throw them at this morning is no listen to guard okay. I wish him and I'll start I would take him but I don't know what reason do this year right but he is one of the best starting pitchers a lot of innings on his army throws really hard. Like I don't know right but don't don't use that thought process if you have amassed a draft pick them at at 21 this trait turner. Young. Question right one great year number 22 I have an end in this what are a lot of tomorrow there'll like. I think he should be good but I don't know. Chris Sale. Apparently out. One of the best pitchers in baseball new team new decision new division you never know that's amazing numbers against the aliens avail he is nail these killer but you never know it's different ballpark every single day. Number 23 Edwin Encarnacion. That is a lot of bombs that say I as a die hard Indians fan. That's a huge question mark for me I was I was kind of avoiding him a year ago already so I mean he edited your last year but. I'd better guys who have been worried about what to decline coming now I am praying to sweet baby all off. That and what are colosio and is the Edwin Encarnacion we know for mind he is a fantasy wise I am very hesitant. The next Freddie Freeman. I think people. Overlook Freddie Freeman more mission ivy Frye would agree. Is a very very good fantasy first baseman is one of the top first baseman in baseball I would agree dot because in Atlanta. He gets less RB opportunities because that was does hurt his value that hurts fantasy value but he's also the only hitter on the team. So if you're taking a brave you're taken credit for him so here they always add urgency cartoonish here the next guys at 25. Or clover. Question mark lot of innings in the post season. And among question quickly over Kate 26 Robbie canal. Tech is the decline coming soon you do not know you never know when this decline is coming 27 Frankie one door no questions. No questions he's legit okay. You sold beyond regular indoor more than I've sold myself if I do like him he's got such a great smile he's got a better smiled and Tim Newton yes. A 128 Nelson Cruz you know. Tony questionable because again we're waiting for the decline in women's open is old. 29. Ryan brawn no. Yeah no oh yeah number one on my do not draft list. In perpetuity. Perpetuity the opportunity I will never draft right Ryan brown. They are gigantic huge huge sushi. He hasn't been the same since he got pop for terrorists right and number thirty is George springer now look at now real quick I don't wanna hold on too long on this the 31 through forty is more like guys like yes I'll take your shot of that Bogart's. AJ Pollock. Dozier. John Carlo cargo. Trevor story Jonathan below our area at a lesser a break you. Much better play much better although. Much better like feel good like I feel good having this guy a model of a little wary about John Campbell are this year. He came out of literally nowhere last year to be like the vessel based guy in baseball agreed some a little nervous pluses on Milwaukee. But it got insulated at second third and short on ES PM true. ESPN's Tony you're thirtieth Freddie Freeman Joey motto that can be questionable one but he actually played pretty well last year auto I believe was in the top. Talking when he yankees seventeen in my latest frank human door Corey clever sterling marte cinder garden Bogart's. Dozier him Daniel Murphy a little nervous Belfort. And especially marte. Do I loved. Starling marte is excellent last year alone will to have them on a team I loved marte real life I'd kill to have them on a team followed him ample collection both of the corner outfielders there. One of them seem to be center fielder. But. I love both vomiting they're really good so. If you like the pirates keep about a million affairs addressed so are we kind of scene right now is who reveled they showed that the second round could be make or break for me. May be. He could beat second third round. This happens in football drafts all the time if you put fantasy football like first rounds kind of a no brainer you'd take the best guy on the board of third round. Is critical because there's guys who were always over ranked. That like I'm gonna take Jamaal Charles in the second round cool he's done with a hammy in week three could buy. Exactly and that's club. Be careful you luckily for baseball rosters are the girl yeah thank god you have some time to fill fill. I injured player. Forty man real time in a bunch of people in fantasy. Will be back next weekend it's basically a last chance before the season starts. Oh gonna get into some things that we like over like seemed. America's sub 70 bottomless seven mil this over Marcus stroman just gave up may have to on helpless gone. Who's acting like he just hit a home run to tie the game and they're down 70. However he's excited or more of that and flashy filly and I hit. So we'll see you next week on the apple might lynch on. Don't watch sushi. We're not.
