Don't be shellfish...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

I’m stepping out before my Khris Davis deep sleeper call goes off and giving him a nickname right up front.  You can call him Khris Kross after old school rappers Kris Kross because…because nicknames.  I’m telling you, it’s good!  I’m great at nicknames!  Just ask my cousin, Sarah Tess Davidson.  Some would call her ‘STD’ but I went with something beautiful: Chlamydia.  You don’t even need to ask, of course the name stuck!  Friends, family, you name it, they called her it.  You can imagine how popular she was in High School.  The boys wouldn’t leave her alone, I tell ya.  As a freshman, she was invited out to drive thru movie after drive thru movie, but she never remembered what movie they went to nor much of, if any of the plot and along the way she had 3 kids and dropped out of High School.  I never understood all that, my cousin Chlamydia was such a smart girl…but neverthewho!  We’re not here to talk about all the nephews and nieces I have on welfare, we’re here to discuss how you don’t want to miss the bus on Davis in your deep leagues for 2014 Fantasy Baseball…

The 2013 season as a whole for the Brewers was as some would say, a bit of a downer.  There were a lot of underperformers, a lot of injuries, a lot of suspensions…a lot of dreck, really.  Sure, highlights like Carlos Gomez and Jean Segura were nice but they weren’t enough to make up for the rest of the heartache surrounding the team.  And over the off-season, they lost one of their more consistent players in Norichika Aoki via trade for Will Smith.  Yeah, not the same Will Smith but that tune might be more relevant to 2014 than the baseball version.  Of course that’s a yadda to the third power at this point so lets trudge on.  With Corey Hart also now no longer a Brewer, it’ll be a time that Davis gets to prove or disprove he deserves a shot to shine.  Of course, nearly guaranteed playing time isn’t the main thing we like to hang our hats on in deeper leagues.  We gotta want that PT on our roster and I think Davis’ power showed through from his major league stint last year.  In 2013, Khris Kross exploded onto the scene with 11 homeruns in just 153 plate appearances.  If we just push that to a modest tripling of PA of 459, he was on pace for a 33 HR year.  Of course, that would most likely be an overly ambitious pace to expect or assume out of him.  To be fair, his major league stint played much bigger than his minor league record would suggest but given a combo of his AAA and MLB stats in 2013, you get about a .260 average to go with 24 HRs and 7 steals, which he did in 453 PA.  Now that is more in line with reasonable expectations for a guy like him.  If he excels just a bit to his MLB stats from last year, he’ll be closer to 30 HRs than he will 25 when it’s all said and done.  Given that the Brewers are moving Braun to right field to give Khris a chance, I’ll be banking a Corey Hart circa 2012 season is going to be available in the wee hours of the draft.  If that don’t make ya Jump, Jump, I don’t know what will.

        @Sky: @Sky: I’m kind of disappointed I didn’t get Khrush Davis either. He also went in the 12th in my main league (standard 5×5 roto, 12 teams), which I thought was too early, but maybe I just need more gamble in me?

        Anyone seen Rudy around?

          Sky says:

          Yeah, Davis’ value is gonna be league dependent. Had an RCL where he went in the 13th and that room was full of people spending early on power everywhere so if you see that flying off the boards early, you’ll know Davis will go pretty high.

          Rudy is at that Austin thing I’m guessing. SXSW. I could be wrong.

    I am really enjoying the content on this site. I am in a deep league so I appreciate how the site aslo caters to leagues that go beyond 12 teams. Your work is much appreciated.

    How would you rank these young OFers for a keeper league (16 team). Standard stats. I am hoping to grab at least 2. I will be able to hold on to them for 2 years, plus own matching rights.

    Garcia CWS:
    Yelich Mia:
    Davis Mil:
    Calhoun Laa:
    Springer HOu:
    Taveras Stl
    Arcia Min
    Buxton Min:

    One more: Where does Baez SS CHC rank among these players in a keeper?

    Thanks for your help!

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Cool man, thanks for the read!

      My personal take on those guys would be: Avisail, Davis, Arcia, Yelich, Calhoun, Springer, Tavares, Buxton.

      I’d want Baez over all but of course this is a question of roster needs. Baez I see outperforming them when he finally is on the team but it’s a 16 teamer: you have to make sure you fill your needs. He should go later for that reason. I’d take him after Yelich even if I need an OF still if that gives you an idea.

      • Hewhohesitates...is LOST. says:
        (link)

        @Sky:

        Young players go early in this league. Last year was a rebuilding year for my team so I am rich in picks & cap space. I can take Baez earlier than most. Our benches are 28 deep, I will have my 28 players completed after the first 240 are off the board. That means the other 15 teams fight it out over the 222. & keep drafting the slim pickings after 350+.

        Again, I think this site is great, especially the responsiveness of the site contributors. Thank you SKY.

        My draft is Saturday. Its like Christmas. Probably lasts like 6 hours complete with lunch. We do a live auction until 10 roster sports are filled. Then we do a straight draft (Toilet Bowl winner picks first, then worst to first pick). 16 rounds. This is the “money” part were you grab zero dollar players, that contribute big. Grabbing young guys like Baez & Davis can make my team strong this year & next. Or they make great trade chips.

        Look forward to reading more great stuff!

      He went in the 13th round in one of my RCLs and 16th in another. That puts him around the price of 10 to 12 but he could go higher. I wrote this back in January and a lot of people have gotten on board in the meantime.

    I like him….working on a BABIP differential post and he was in the top 50 i.e. likely to have an even better BABIP …even if power naturally drops off (has some speed; good balls in play approach), etc.

    Didnt have shift data on him yet, but in the small data on FG, he had a solid AVG on pull, center & opposite (hovered around .300 on both pull and opposite as well).

    I like him alot.

    In a 20 team dynasty league i was able to draft him in round 4 of minor league portion (under 150 AB)….booyakasha!

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Nice! Yeah, he should have a .260 floor if everything goes right. The power is legit. Will remain to be seen if he’s a 25/7 guy or a 35/7. Either way, he’s intriguing to me as well.

  8. mauledbypandas says:
    (link)

    I too am enamored with Khris Davis! I do worry about small sample sizes and all that. (she said it was a good size!)

    His minors stats look pretty good, but we might be talking about a guy who has a Rizzo from last year kinda year. I am not even sure he is that advanced… dude has a really long swing.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @mauledbypandas: I think Rizzo is a bigger pull hitter than Davis. Davis just makes a lot of hard contact and doesn’t take long to get the bat into the zone. His minor numbers say he’s a fairly selective hitter. If he improves his walks to something closer to his minors, he’ll be a reasonable get. I see him as a 25 HR guy who could bomb 35 if all goes right.

      • Big Magoo

        Big Magoo says:
        (link)

        @Sky: 35? Don’t put that tasty projection into my head. I’ll take .265/25/8. Anything on top of that is gravy.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Yup, that’s about what I see. 35 is attainable, though, if he stays on pace. It’s not likely to happen is all.

          • mauledbypandas says:
            (link)

            @Sky: I guess what I meant is I could see the guy hitting 25 HR and .250 He does have good opposite field power and where you have to take him right now he is worth a gamble.

            I think Davis has some holes in his swing but if he fixes them… wow

      @Andrew A: looks like a reasonably balanced team minus not having a top tier SP, though you have plenty of upside arms that could leap up to SP2 or SP3 territory this year. Overally not bad at all but like you said, you’ll want to keep your eyes on waivers for starters and be ready to move off of your lower end ones quickly if they don’t pan out.

      • The Thumb says:
        (link)

        @Fungazi: haha a couple guys in my league brought that up. I don’t see any reasonable huge decline for Beltre or Ortiz. Pujols was a bit of stretch but I didn’t want to trust first base to Hosmer or Craig etc., besides I figure he still has one good year in him. As for Beltran, I’m a Yankee fan (I know, bash me) and feel/hope he stays healthy and has a huge year.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @The Thumb: Looks like you tempered your age issues with a little youth on the bench so at leat thers that. You picked some guys that I’m not going near this year where they’re being priced but like Fungazi said, if guys like Pujols stay healthy and productive for you all year, it’s a solid looking squad. Starting pitching looks solid to me as I like the 6 you have. RP come and go, you’ll probably move on from a few of them over the course of the year. Might be part of why the WAR room doesn’t do well with them but I didn’t have anything to do with it so I’m not sure. Either way, it should be a competitive team if healthy.

        Speaking of Razzball, isn’t it strange that the awards they give out for the worst that Hollywood produces each year are called “The Razzies”? I wonder if that is mere coincidence or, perhaps, an evil scheme?

          I’m leaning evil scheme. Grey keeps saying he doesn’t watch Adam Sandler movies but I think he has a secret stash of them under his bed instead of a porn collection. He prolly just watched Jack and Jill the other night!

    Sky would you trade Nelson cruz and Zack grienke for michael wacha?

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      You’re vastly underrating Greinke with these trades and Cruz is not a throwaway player. I’m not certain of the reason for the trades you’re trying to make but I don’t see what value you’re trying to gain in return from them.

      • Joe G says:

        @Sky: to be honest i just have a bad feeling this season for grienke

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Ok, that doesn’t mean you should be trading down from him. Not to needle you but if you have a bad feeling about him, why did you draft him? He went before Wacha most likely in your draft and plenty of other arms would’ve still been available. You’re trying to give him away. Not smart even if you have a ‘feeling’ about him. Look at some 2-2 trades and take a ‘downgrade’ at pitching and an upgrade at OF. At the very least, you need to stop doing these 2-1 offers just because you have a feeling about Greinke.

          • Joe G says:

            @Sky: your right……my rotation is Zack grienke,garret colé,tony cinganari, Francisco liriano,sonny gray,tim lincecum,derek holland,Zack wheeler….you think is solid?

              Sky says:

              Not a bad rotation at all. Lot of good names and upside. Again, if you want ot move off of Grienke, that’s absolutely fine. But make a trade that’s not 50 or 75 cents on the dollar to do it.

    I was able to get Khris in the 15th in my RCL draft, I was stoked.

              Ha, I think we came to an understanding. I’ve seen him post regularly. I think in many ways he’s a good guy but felt bullied by some responses when he had some criticism. I think critique is fine if given correctly. Oaktown doesn’t always agree with Grey and they talk it out and have their opinions. Looking back, he kinda got ganged up on and retorted a bit, though he also could’ve handled some of the earlier situations better. Either way, he’s not trolling anymore to my knowledge and is bringing his opinion to the table still, I think. All good with me if that’s how it is.

                Yeah it’s cool to have different opinions on the site. He could’ve handled it better, but I’m sure some of us (me included) could’ve done better too. Glad he’s not trolling anymore. That’s the good thing about this site versus Yahoo/ESPN/CBS…this is more of a community and not full of asshats thinking they are king sh!t.

                  When I hop a ride with my buddy to pickup basketball games, he gives out free chocolate milk boxes afterwards. Seriously like going from a 35 year old back to a 10 year old who just got done with soccer practice. It’s awesome.

      LOB baby! Super Bowl was awesome. The one where we played the 49ers I mean. Don’t know what that was on February…

      Ooph good question. Of course it depends on what rankings were following. Bautista would be my pick from Greys. Has the track record and could easily match Chris Davis’ 2013. I’ve been aiming for him in my drafts in the second round. E5 too if he’s ranked low enough. Their floor is higher than alot of guys going around them in my opinion.

        Thats solid advice! I’m definitely looking to snab Jose Bats in the 3rd or 4th.

        Dude, I went to the NFC Championship game! It cost an arm and a leg but it was totally worth every penny. Just saw we lost Tate and Breno to free agency today. Are you worried at all about our lack of participation in free agency (besides Bennett)?

          Losing Tate doesn’t bother me. It means Dougie-B and Harvin will be good to go. I’m guessing they’ll take care of needs via the draft. Just remember we barely saw him last year. Game changer. Throw in Kearse and I like our WR set. Hope we take care of some o-line I issues but I don’t think being FA active is what got us here

            Yup you’re right. It’s been the draft all along that’s brought us to be Super Bowl champions. I don’t know how many picks we have in the draft, but i bet Carroll and Schneider are balls deep into player analysis for the draft.

            I’m just glad Revis didn’t sign with SF. AND i’m glad that Donte Whitner left SF. The future looks bright for our team Sky!

              I’m down with it! Will be telling if Christine gets going a bit in 2014. Hard to think Lynch carries the load again this year. Change of pace with Turbin and a few more touches for Michaels and it should be good. Oh and I really love Kearse. Think he might have himself a fine 2014 with an assumed bigger role

                    1) working out the QB for his next team because his tired act will land him somewhere else than being the coach of the San Jose 49ers

                    2) knows what many of us real analysts do and that is Kaep is pretty worthless with out those wheels. Dude should of pursued baseball, his fraudulent ways would of been hidden in long relief.

    10 team keeper league, h2h points daily lineups, no cost to keepers, and no limit to time I can keep them. We have 30 man rosters and 12 (!) keepers. I am having trouble with my pitching keepers. I am targeting 4 keepers for SP.

    3 are pretty certain:
    Miller, Shelby
    Lee, Cliff
    Sanchez, Anibal

    The other SP I have on roster right now are:
    Buchholz, Clay
    Archer, Chris
    Moore, Matt
    Burnett, AJ
    Kelly, Joe
    Harvey, Matt
    Cueto, Johnny

    I could maybe keep 2 additional, but that would force hard decisions on my hitting keepers

    Leaning towards Archer, and potentially even Harvey, looking to long term upside, and potential for late season play.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      assuming no cost or round situation is involved, I’ll say Archer. Not a huge Moore fan as I worry about loss of velocity and his inability to walk less than 4 per 9. Harvey should be drafted or picked up mid-season. He’s gonna be on the DL too long and you’re not really gonna want to start him down the stretch if he does pitch.

        @Sky: Thanks Sky!

        Double dipping… how about hitters:
        My Keepers:
        1. McCutchen, Andrew
        2. Goldschmidt, Paul
        3. Pujols, Albert
        4. Zimmerman, Ryan
        5. Trumbo, Mark

        Pick Three: (Belt, Brandon; Adams, Matt; Seager, Kyle; Profar, Jurickson; Castro, Jason; Gattis, Evan; Lowrie, Jed; Granderson, Curtis; Middlebrooks, Will)

        I am heavy on 1B, but there is a lot of talent there. Leaning on Adams, Profar and Seager, but wonder if I am overlooking Lowrie and Belt, maybe even Middlebrooks. I have had Middlebrooks since he came up.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I’d go Adams/Profar/Middlebrooks for the upside. Can swap in Belt and/or Seager over Adams/Middlebrooks if you want some stability.

    So, Kris Kross the group, not the ill-conceived murder plan developed by DeVito in Throw Mama From The Train then?

    What’s the story on Davis as compared to Hart in terms of wheels? The Brewers run a lot as a team and Corey was well-rounded in those respects during his good years so does Davis look to fill that void a bit as well or is he strictly a power guy?

    I picked up Khris “with a KH” Davis off of waivers last yr in a non keeper league 10tm yahoo standard. .im 100% on board with him this yr. I inherited another team in a keeper league with auction draft, with a $275 budget what’s top dollar you would pay for him? I only kept 3. Encarnacion@27 romo@10 and soriano@7…(The team I inherited wasnt planning on keepers so that’s what I was stuck with.). Thanks with a “TH”.

    • Sky

        (link)

        @Sky: thanks im not throwing him out there until late late but ill bid him up if he’s there early. Just wanted an input on his top $ value. Its only 10 teams so I don’t think he’ll be a hot item.
