Here’s a fun list:

Carlos Gonzalez — 424.6 feet
Giancarlo Stanton — 422.8
Trevor Story — 420.3
Nomar Mazara — 415.8

A) Surprised to not see Cespedes since he started with 100 feet  B) Hot damn, Nomar!  C) There’s no C.  If you haven’t guessed, that’s the top distances averaged on home runs for players with at least 18 homers last year.  Two of the guys were Rockies, i.e., Coors, and the other one was Giancarlo.  Right behind Nomar Mazara was Nelson Cruz, Joc Pederson, Trout and Goldschmidt.  Oh, and tied with Mazara was Mitch Moreland.  Is there a non-home run hitter among these men, I ask sounding like a character from Game of Thrones.  Granted, I do believe it to be true (why do I sound like I’m talking Middle Ages English?) that if someone hits fewer homers there’s gonna be a chance their average distance will be higher.  In other words, Mazara hit 20 homers last year.  If he hit 30 homers, maybe he would’ve hit a few just-outta-heres and his average distance would’ve lowered, but he didn’t so I’m throwing out my theory that I just threw in there.  Don’t ask me why I didn’t just omit it to begin with and don’t end a sentence with with — dah!  If I wanted, I could link to or post a bunch of upper deck blasts by Mazara.  Seriously, he did not get cheated on his dingers.  I personally hate when my dingers are cheated on.  So, what can we expect from Nomar Mazara for 2017 fantasy baseball and what makes him a sleeper?

Well, second things first, he’s a sleeper, because he won’t be drafted until around 150 to 200 overall.  He’s a 21-year-old that just hit 20 homers that averaged distances hardly seen.  21 years old?!  This isn’t fair.  I don’t know why hype isn’t building hard for this guy.  It could be because of his lesser 2nd half.  I’m not talking his bum, I’m talking about August/September.  He hit .242 and his Ks skyrocketed to 25.4%.  Since he doesn’t have any speed whatsoever, he needs to hit to continue to prove valuable.  I’d say his 2nd half was merely growing pains that killed our Boner.  RIP.  His 2nd half doesn’t concern me.  If you’re all ears like Alfred E. Neuman, what does worry me is his fly ball rate.  He doesn’t hit a ton of them.  He hits grounders.  That’s not good for a guy with no speed and big-time power.  If he tweaks his swing, he could be a 40-homer hitter.  No foolsies.  Unfortch, we can’t just project a guy to change his approach even though he’s only 21 years old and it would be easier for him than, say, a 35-year-old.  Even with his worm killer tendencies, which could cause him to duck PETA, he will easily hit 25 homers.  Here’s what I said when he was first called up, “(Mazara) kinda reminds me of a young Matt Holliday, though from the other side of the dish.  I watched some of his YouTube highlights and he doesn’t struggle to hit balls a long way, but also doesn’t look like a fat turd that can’t make it to first.  I’m no scout, but watching him makes me think this is what scouts call sexy.  I’ve seen him compared to Miguel Cabrera.  Okay, no one is Miguel Cabrera until they are Miguel Cabrera, if you catch my drift, but Mazara doesn’t look like a guy that is going to disappoint.  .280 with 30 homers a season for many years.”  And that’s me quoting me!  (I went on to say this year I’ll project him for 20 HRs and .275.  He hit 20 HRs and .266.  Give me that gold star!)  So, for 2017, I’ll give Nomar Mazara the projections of 72/26/81/.277/2 in 554 ABs with upside from there and I want him on every team.

    Thanks Grey. Had no idea he was crushing dingers so hard!

    Bit of a random one for you – my 10-12 team H2H obp/ops league is going keeper this year, with teams getting 5 keepers at 10% inflation per year (making it less ideal to keep high ticket players). What sort of first rounder talents would you be targeting for a brand new keeper league of that format? I’ve been thinking clear top talents who “underperformed” slightly last year…Harper, Goldy (if at a discount), Correa – those sort of guys. Would you agree?

    The other wrinkle is that after the draft portion, there are unlimited waiver grabs during the season (no FAAB) . . . so theoretically I could blow my auction budget on expensive studs (Trout Harper Correa Votto or Goldy for ~$150 out of $260) then round out my team using mostly $2 and waiver guys.

    Also, Todd Frazier reference.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: So hard! I’d go with 1st round talents under the age of 30, so Donaldson out, everyone else in… I don’t like buying expensive studs then having all $1 players

      • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks! Yeah, tough choices. Good call on the strategy. I’m usually the fastest finger on waiver grabs in this league, so hopefully I’ll get some nice keepers from that pool.

        Second half sneaky guys like Bregman / Dahl strike me as keepers who may get drafted on the cheap.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, I’d be all over Dahl if I could

          • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
            (link)

            @Grey: For sure. Broxton (likely $1 in this league) and Sano could also be interesting guys for OBP keeps given those nice BB rates.

  4. Buttler says:

    Thanks for another great update (“RIP” = LOL). I’m not sure I trust the recent power glut enough to totally doze on power this year, but you’ve definitely got options with players like Mazara near the end of the draft — how stoked would we be about a projection like this in 2014? Speaking of which, I’ve been going nuts trying to find a mock draft online. Do you know of any sites that have their app up and running this early?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Buttler: Yeah, if last year’s power holds 25 HRs isn’t as glamourous… But it’s not bad from late rounder…. Hmm, I’m not sure on mock drafts

      • REW says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I’ve also been looking and as far as I know none are up but when I find 1 ill def post it hope you do the same

          • Buttler says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Just saw that the Fantasy Pros draft simulator is up and running fwiw – not actually a mock draft but a useful free tool to get a very rough sense of how the board will be organized (the computer reached and took Trea Turner in the early second round).

    Your sleeper posts are always the best out there. Before the season you should make one post that just lists all of the guys you wrote up like a cheat sheet. Thanks Grey!!!

  6. Wil says:
    (link)

    At first I was going to say not surprising to see Mooreland up there also due to the Ballpark in Arlington but then I checked Mazaras split and saw he had almost twice as many homers on the road (13) compared to at home (7), which got me a little more excited about Mazara. Especially considering the rest of the stadiums in the al west overall would prolly equate to be the toughest hitters parks in baseball.

    I remeber last year you had stats for “just barely” home runs. Couldn’t you use that to see if your theory is accurate on Mazara?

    Another question, this one on my fantasy team… The league is 12 teams 6×6 with ops and qs. Each team can keep up to 4 players every year at no cost pre draft. Rizzo, Arenado and Springer are locks. With my 4th keeper I have to choose between Braun and Jonathan Villar (Carrasco is the best pitcher on my last year’s roster). With Villar having ss and 2b eligibility, all those steals, and not killing you at avg or ops, good pop for a SB guy with 19 homers last year, plus Braun’s injury history I’m maybe leaning Villar. Steamer is calling for some big time regression, projecting Villar to have nearly 100 points less in OPS from last season and sizeable drop off’s everywhere else as well. And it’s really hard to not keep Braun who just went for 80/30/91/.305/16 and a .903 OPS last season.

    So… Braun or Villar for me?

    Thanks!

    P.S.

    Springer is a must keep over those 2 guys right?

    • Old School Brother says:
      (link)

      @Wil: The ballpark in Arlington isn’t quite the launching pad it once was. We added some walls that removed a good portion of the jet stream effect. It’s still a hitter park for sure, but no where near the level of Coors in my opinion

      • Big Odio says:
        (link)

        @Old School Brother: thank you for that I was going to comment the same thing. Oaktown steve brought this up 2 years ago or maybe it was last year. It’s like san diego, they brought in the walls and when it’s dry hot down there the balls fly out of the park.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Wil: What others said about Arlington…. I’d keep Villar due to age, they’re relatively close

    The Middle Ages reference reminds me of a line from Get Him to the Greek that cracks me up every time. Jonah Hill and Brand are in England, in a limo, and the driver is asking what directions he should take to get to the airport. He’s speaking barely legible British English saying something like, “Should I scurry up the chizek roundabout between Haslow and Barlow?” Jonah says, “What is this, fucking Middle Earth? Just get us to the airport okay?!”

    OBP dynasty, which side do you like more?

    Giancarlo, Pederson
    or
    Votto, Yu, Moncada

    • CMUTimmah says:
      (link)

      @Mike: I’m leaning towards that Moncada side on this one… but you’re giving up a TON of power, so the rest of your roster would need to be power heavy to make this a good trade for your team.

      • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
        (link)

        @CMUTimmah: Totally, though having Votto means you can sell out OBP for a Khris Davis type (probably really cheap in OBP) without feeling the ~.300 OBPangs.

    • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
      (link)

      @Mike: I’m definitely no expert like Grey, but in OBP I’d even do that for just Votto and Moncada (let alone an ace like Yu on top).

    • Big Odio says:
      (link)

      @Mike: voto side for sure. Better balance and long term upside

      • Mike says:

        EE, Giancarlo, Pederson

        Votto, Moncada, Yu, Dahl, and 3 picks between 105-120

    Good morning G,

    Happy new year to you and the mrs. I hope you made a lot of bad decisions on New Year’s Eve!! Haha.

    I know your going to be flooded with keeper questions in the next 2 and a half months so I’ll ask mine early while there is less commotion. And as always I greatly appreciate your help. I’ve been a loyal razz reader since way back in the day when it was daily write ups and some rankings. I’m glad you’ve all made it to the big show!!!

    12 team keeper. 6×6 ops and qs are extra catagories. We play only one util slot, but we have one extra infield slot. We keep 7 forever.

    These are the possible keepers for me. Some vets but potential I think…..

    Bryant
    Cargo(col)
    Lamb
    Schoop
    Russell
    Desmond
    Khris Davis
    Brantley
    Sano

    Salazar
    Fulmer
    Aaron Sanchez
    Quintana
    De Leon

    Thank you again in advance. Looking forward to the 16th!!

    Happy new years my man.
    Long time razzballer (you’ve helped me win money the last 3 years so I owe you). Great work again, I have Dahl and Mazara in my minor league system and I have the option to keep Springer, Murphy, Odor, Arrieta or Yu. I’m thinking Odor because he will cost the less and is the youngest and I love him punching Jose. So my main question is: I already have Trout, do you think I will be fine in a 3 OF league with my other two guys as Dahl and Mazara? How would you compare Dahl and Mazara to each other? Thanks bro and keep up the good work.

    Side B trades Brantley and Zobrist

    IF Brantley comes back healthy (a big IF), Side B wins this trade, right? Is this too big of a risk for the Hanley owner to take?

    With Nate Karns going to the Royals, you think it affects Cram’s outlook on life at all?

      @nick the dick: he’s going to slit something and choke something. Not sure what those will be but he will.

        @Big Odio: Well if we’re talking chicken, I hope he’s choking not slitting

              That taste might’ve been divine but you give me some fried chicken livers and a bawling cheftestant at judges’ table over that… My favorite, Padma, “Are you, like, okay?” *cries* “Yeah, this is tough.”

    Good read as usual Grey,

    I have tried to trade for Mazara in my dynasty league on a couple of occasions. The owner is not interested. Might have to try again, I guess.

    Just had a blockbuster proposed to me in that same (12 team H2H) dynasty.

    I give : Rizzo, Duffy, Gallo
    I get : Goldschmidt, Price

    I get the best player in the deal right? I should be accepting it?

    Dan

        @Grey:

        Thanks for the quick feedback. Am about to accept but just trying to squeeze a bit more out of the trade.

  32. Test Kitchen says:

    Grey,

    I have Arrieta as my only keeper worthy pitcher as well as Villar and Story

    Which do you prefer:

    Sale

    or

    Lindor

    Thanks,

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @Test Kitchen: Keep Sale and Lindor instead of Villar?

      • Test Kitchen says:
        (link)

        @Cram It: Sorry, that was not written clearly. I have all 3 SS and was offered Sale for Lindor (and a few players I wouldn’t keep anyways).

    • Test Kitchen says:
      (link)

      @Test Kitchen: I can also probably offer Villar instead of Lindor. From the comments it appears you prefer Lindor over Villar.

      Would you prefer to have Sale over Villar?

      • Grey

        Grey says:
        (link)

        Lindor over Villar, Sale and Villar are a toss up, go bat

        • Test Kitchen says:
          (link)

          @Grey: what about Villar vs Syndergaard?

          Thanks

    Hey Grey,

    Happy New Year! 9th/final keeper in 14-team H/H, in 19th round… Dahl or Benintendi?

    Thanks

      @Steve: is it close?

      • Grey

        Grey says:

        Yes

    • Test Kitchen says:
      (link)

      @Steve: Grey, any concerns about Dahl’s playing time? I’m just having a hard time seeing Desmond at first base. Is it legitimate to worry that he might move to OF and make playing time an issue for Dahl?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Dahl

  34. Cram It says:

    You do some offseason drafting, where is Dahl going? Or where do you think his ADP is reasonably?

    I get an alert on my phone that say the Padres are interested in Peavy, Weaver and Fister. Talk about the taking them out to pasture trifecta

      Padres have a ton of money to get some huge free agents, right? They should look at Jeff Weaver too

        @Grey: I said they were interested in weaver..Oooh maybe they can go after Jamie Moyer

          Yeah, Jered Weaver, I joked Jeff, but yeah… Moyer’s available
