In the real world, the realm of 20 homers and 20 stolen bases has now become a cheap rack of cheaters at your local pharmacy. The state of the power and thievery in the game, as a combined entity, is a pooh-fest currently filled with zero residents. The possibilities of getting maybe three could happen by the end of the month and those names are first round darlings: Paul Goldschmidt (22/15), Jose Alutve (15/21), and Mookie Betts (17/17) are the closest to reaching the ranks of the common folk from 10 years ago. I have gone over the numbers in previous years posts and the number of 20/20 players is on a perpetual downward slope. So while nothing is guaranteed for the standard “he is a 20/20 player” from year-to-year, the reward when he does it is, well… rewarding. If the standard for the dual threat is just being one of a few who does both, then they deservedly so belong in the first round. Like the three names that I just mentioned. All had ADP preseason in the top-10 and very comfortably. I know it’s August and I am here waxing poetic about ADP… Well, it is the first of the month and the other ADP is all about paying people, so I thought it was apropos. So when looking next year at what you can get out of a player, dumb down the 20/20 expectations and limit it to a select and proud few. sad state of affairs, next thing you know we will be giving fantasy participation trophies to everyone so nobodies feelings get hurt. Cheers!
