The White Sox traded Adam Eaton for Reynaldo Lopez, Dane Dunning and top pitching prospect, Lucas Giolito; the second day in a row top prospects are headed to the White Sox.  It doesn’t seem out of the realm of possibilities that Theo Epstein is studying abroad this winter and abroad is the South Side of Chicago.  “Excuse me, but, uh, why do you have this electrodes hooked up to my brain?”  That’s Theo Epstein as Rick Hahn dips out of the interrogation room to get coffee.  If I were a fan of a club that had no chance of winning next year, I’d want my team to go about rebuilding like the White Sox.  “What, you don’t like our signing of Ian Desmond?”  I’ll get to you in a second, Rockies.  The White Sox have taken a bunch of lemons, planted lemon seeds next to a sugar plantation that they purchased off eBay and should have lemonade in a few years.  They might even trade that old guy from the Country Time Lemonade commercial for another prospect!  As for fantasy, Adam Eaton went 14/14 and 14/18 the last two years, which is deceptively awful.  It’s one thing to go 14/14, it’s another thing to go 14/14 in 619 ABs.  He’s like Markakis as a middle infielder.  If you own Eaton in any fantasy league shallower than 14-team mixed, you should lose your league.  The problem with a guy like Eaton in a shallower league is anyone who is even half paying attention should be able to beat his stats with just a few decent waiver wire grabs.  You can likely beat Eaton’s numbers by just streaming hitters every day, and never even holding any guy who gets hot.  Eaton’s stats come out to one homer and one steal every two weeks.  Holy Jewish Jesus, that’s bad.  Sure, there’s some value to his 90+ runs and .280+ average, but if you can’t get runs and average that matches that from streaming, again, you deserve to lose.  For 2017, I’ll give Eaton the projections 102/12/49/.277/16 in 605 ABs.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw this offseason for 2017 fantasy baseball:

Lucas Giolito – Went the other way in the Eaton trade.  I’ve already gave you my Lucas Giolito fantasy, and 95% of it still holds.  You need to throw out the Dusty Baker hazarai, and the NL East became the AL Central, which isn’t great, but now Giolito has a clearer path to a starter role.  There’s talk he could be in the White Sox rotation out of the gate, but he can’t exactly throw a full season yet, so I picture him being held down until June.  For now, I’m keeping his projections the same — 5-4/3.67/1.27/97 in 105 IP.

Wade Davis – Traded to the Cubs for Jorge Soler. This feels like a move that only would’ve happened after the Cubs won the World Series.  Doesn’t this feel like a 2005 Red Sox move? Maybe I’m overestimating the fan IQ, but I picture a lot more disagreement with trading a future bat for a closer that missed time last year with forearm problems and had his worst K and walk rates of his reliever career.   I know, I know, Soler hasn’t been good, and, yes, the Cubs time to win is now, not in three years, if it takes that long for Soler, but if Wade Davis makes it through 2017 without at least one DL stint, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle, and, while my nephew may enjoy bananas, he’s not a monkey.  Wouldn’t be shocked to see Hector Rondon closing by May.  Then Carl Edwards Jr. closing by May 15th.  Then Mike Montgomery is tried as closer on June 1st.  Then Wade Davis returns for two weeks until he’s injured again.  Then A.J. Ramos, after a trade, closes for the Cubs on July 25th.  What can I say, my Magic Eight Ball is very exact.  For 2017, I’ll give Wade Davis the projections of 3-1/2.87/1.16/55, 33 saves in 50 IP with nothing but downside from there.

Jorge Soler – Traded to the Royals in the Davis deal.  Like a recent emigre of Transylvania, this will be the first time Soler will be able to do anything without someone breathing down his neck. You can’t underestimate the amount of pressure on a guy who repeatedly had players knocking on his playing time door.  “Knock, knock.” “Who’s there?” “Kyle Schwarber taking your playing time.”  “This is the worst Knock, Knock joke ever.”  That’s Soler.  For 2017, I’ll give him the projections 64/20/77/.261/2 in 487 ABs with a chance for upside.

Aroldis ChapmanYankees tied him up for five years like Aroldis ties up prostitutes in his hotel room.  Somewhere, Fidel Castro is sitting, lighting his cigar on the surrounding flames, saying, “I gave that kid everything,” which was a bunk bed he shared with Jose Abreu and an oven mitt that the entire country shared as a glove.  But they have health care!  Supposedly, but I don’t trust Michael Moore, could be the baseball hat that looks like it smells like onions.  Any hoo!  Aroldis heads back to the Yanks and will be as dominant as always, between domestic abuse scandals, of course.  Okay, one more thing, Google suggests “Aroldis Chapman Jew?” before it suggests “Aroldis Chapman domestic abuse.”  Okay, really, any hoo now, for 2017, I’ll give him the projections 5-3/1.98/0.95/100, 42 saves in 64 IP.

Ian Desmond – Signed with the Rockies (for a half a decade, which is one of the worst real life baseball deals I’ve heard in a while, but this is about fantasy, so let’s move on.  Dot dot dot.  Okay, one last thing on real life baseball, the Rockies would be a playoff contender if every final game score was 7-6.). As for fantasy, *going through the old Rolodex in the brain looking for a Desmond highlight*  There it is!  In his rookie year, Desmond hit the longest home run at Nationals Park, and Adam Dunn was on that team. In 2015, he hit the 8th longest home run in the majors at 470 feet.  What the hell am I getting at?  Desmond doesn’t hit wall scrappers, he hits bombs, and now he’s headed to Coors.  He may average 430 feet on his 30 HRs next year.  Yes, I said it, 30 HRs.  I’m done underestimating the magic Silver Bullet that is Coors.  As of now, the Rockies say he’ll play 1st base, which makes total sense with his cannon for an arm.  Ow, eye roll headache!   For 2017, I’ll give him the projections of 79/30/94/.273/15 in 579 ABs.

Chris Heston – Was traded to the Mariners for a player to be named later.  If the player to be named later is Chris Heston, then this is the fairest trade the Mariners have ever been involved in.

Huston Street – The Sciosciapath says Street will compete with Cam Bedrosian and Andrew Bailey for the closer job.  By ‘compete,’ I’m assuming he means ‘who won’t be on the DL.’

Jeff Locke – Signed with the Marlins.  He’ll be in the rotation right behind Koehler, which is not to be confused with a behind on a Koehler.  My bum is on your Koehler!  My bum is on your Koehler!

    As a real life move, I kinda like the Ian Desmond deal. Shows that management is willing to spend. And they’re never fixing their pitching with free agents. No pitcher that is any worth would willingly sign with the Rockies.

    Hopefully they can develop guys who can take a walk and get on base, and solidify their pitching in-house (or even trade CarGo and Blackmon now for a bunch of prospects who can help out with this). I think the big thing here is they want to contend by the time the next wave comes through (tail end of Arenado’s contract and I assume just when Rodgers gets to the bigs)

    Not a fantasy comment but hey, baseball talk is baseball talk.

    Have Desmond in main keeper league for $10. Love it in fantasy.

    I cannot fathom this deal in real life though. So let’s sign a guy for 5 years who has played one decent 1/2 season in the last 2 years and lock him up until he is 35. Then to make room for our young players like Dahl and Tapia, and that ShitStain Parra we signed last off season to a bad contract, let’s look at moving our Center Fielder currently under team control for 2 more years who hit .324 last year and is a guaranteed 20/20 guy that costs us 1/3 of what we signed Desmond for. Don’t get it.

    Also saw your early mock with the CBS “experts” Nice draft. Goldy, Springer, Lindor to start is fantastic. Scott seemed rather shocked Goldy went before Betts and Altuve.

    • Big Odio says:
      (link)

      @The Great Knoche: he played good D and anytime a guy goes 20/20 .280 he’s going to get paid….especially with versatilty to play all over infield and outfield…cust kayin’

      • The Great Knoche says:
        (link)

        @Big Odio: I’m not saying he shouldn’t get something, somewhere, I’m saying for the Rockies this doesn’t make sense.

        And i wouldn’t consider a .966 Fielding percentage in the outfield with Texas, which followed up his stellar .960 on the infield the year before Good D. The versatility to make errors anywhere on the field maybe.

        • Big Odio says:
          (link)

          @The Great Knoche: I actually like the move. It gives the rox a lot of flexibility and doesn’t pigeon hole them in the trade market. I’d be surprised if he finishes the 5 years with them. The numbers bloat will hide any hokes for a team desperate for a controlable outfielder

      • Grey

    Need your help! Trying to choose between a few people in a keeper league. Two teams left the league so we are doing a draft to disperse their teams. Anyone taken has to be a keeper, and everyone else goes to the main draft. Choosing between Pomeranz, Roark, J. Zimmermann, and Anderson Espinoza. It’s a QS, K/9 and BB/9 league in place of wins, k’S and bb’s. Thank you!

    Desmond deal is very odd. Seems like way too many dollars and years. They have quality MLB talent at every position he profiles at. Losing a good draft pick too.

    I’m betting ownership wanted and overpaid for him b/c he fits into their faith based culture:

        @Grey: Yea personally I love the deal. No good starting pitching available, so may as well sure up the pen and when they compete in a year or 2 they won’t have to worry about the pen at all and can focus on starting pitching when there’s actually someone good available. He’s only making like 2 mil more a year than melancon too

      @Bye Felica: They traded him for a top 10 prospect (teaser), and got him back. They’re made of money and haven’t been spending it. I like this move.

    I’ve won a few leagues with Eaton the past couple years, actually. His HR/SB numbers may not be super sexy but he helps a little in every category and he tends to cost little to nothing to acquire (precisely because fools like you only look at the HR/SB numbers and decide he stinks). Eaton is very consistent (his 2015 and 2016 triple slash lines are almost identical) and he has been a top 30 OF in almost every kind of league the past two seasons if you actually look at all the numbers.

    Also, its worth mentioning that many of us do not play in shallow leagues that allow constant daily streaming of hitters. Those leagues are weak.

    • Roger Podacter says:

      @Name: Both my current leagues have strikeouts so he stays on the do not fly list.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I said in shallow leagues, agreed, he’s worthwhile in deeper leagues…

      • Ante GALIC says:

        @Grey: Grey!

        For me, Adam Eaton as OF reminds of Huston Street as closer. As long as they’re on the field they could be good. If you had the stones to plug in Eaton from start to finish I guess you’d get something, but I can never keep to roster him long enough. I see him a lot during the height of his hot streak and say that can’t continue and it doesn’t and then I never go back. I think you’re statement is valid concerning his production.

        90 runs and .280 from a leadoff hitter is not too appealing. To wit…

        a. 9 triples=great
        b. 28 doubles=sad
        c. 122 singles + 63 walks and only 14 SBs in 19 attempts…=not good.

        Cheers,
        Ante

          Agreed for shallower leagues… Name makes a point, deeper leagues, he does have value b/c he gets a ton of ABs and counting stats

    Grey!

    Great write-up. Love the fantasy implications again!

    a. Sorry late to the party as usual, don’t remind me of what happened last time, [yadda]X3. Our military escort vehicle needed 45 minutes of repair work. Then we drove 25 miles per hour for the 25 miles needed to get our destination, making me ONLY one hour late for my meeting. On that note there is good news and bad news.

    1. Good news – I missed 50% of the meeting;
    2. Bad news – I wish I missed 100% of the meeting.

    Really boring with almost 0% pertinence to our operation.

    b. Orange revolution – the color associated with the revolution in the Ukraine.
    Pink revolution – the title of the South Korean all-girl group Apink
    Chicken-shit yellow revolution – The revolution in Africa (it’s coming folks! and it stinks to high Heaven!)

    Cheers,
    Ante

    Hey Grey! In that 12 team keep 7 forever league (+$3 inflation), in exchange for your $30 Kershaw, would you rather have:

    1) $10 JD Mart, $23 Blackmon, and $19 Stras

    2) $6 Correa + smaller piece ($15 Bregman maybe, at best).

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Correa/Bregman sounds sexy — 1 isn’t bad though if 2 doesn’t happen

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

        @Grey: For sure! What about for Correa only?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          I don’t mind it for just Correa, then you can keep Franco and Davis

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

            @Grey: True – thanks, kind sir!

              No problem

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

      Maybe worth noting is that package (1) of this trade would require me to drop a $6 Khris or the $19 Stras to free agency, as well as an $11 Franco, unless I can consolidate my keepers before the deadline (option 2 would not)… though plenty of time until then.

    Im sitting at a good pizza joint in Fountain Valley (next door to Huntington Beach) enjoying buy one get one Coors Light and pizza and wings and the owner and i are talking about the baseball signings and how absurd the contracts have become in sports in general. He tells me his dad worked at a Sears in Minnesota back in the 50s and his manager one day tells him hey man theres gonna be a new guy working with us for a few months, dont get distracted because of it. Turns out that new guy was Harmon Killebrew working at Sears to try and make some extra $ on the side. How crazy is that?!?!?!

    Grey,

    I’d like to get younger at 1B. I have Votto,Pujols ,Duvall, and will be getting A-Gon in the morning. Would you trade anyone of them to get Greg Bird?

    Hey Grey,
    im in a 12 team Keeper league. H2H. We keep 10.
    These are my keepers;
    Fraizer
    Moncada
    Bregman
    Trea
    Cespedes
    Mazara
    Odubell
    Franco
    Harvey
    Velazquez

    I was offered Cueto and Bautista or Cueto Lester or Bautista Tulo for a few picks (#2,#3, and another #3)

    My question is would you trade those picks for those 2 and who would you drop?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Cueto, Lester and lose Odubel and Velazquez

    While there has been alot of good hip hop recos recently, this General Steele and Es-K Building Bridges is easily the hottest joint on Razzball. I’m convinced every beat was made before 1994. Classic vibe all the way through. Don’t let this one pass, G.

      I’m all over it, I encouraged Rappin Ralph early on when no one believed in his links!

      • nick the dick says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I forever trust in Ralph’s links but the Sick Jacken, DITC and this General Steele were my reco links. Not taking away from the Pete Rock and all the dope joints he posts, but this Building Bridges would’ve gone sadly unnoticed, and Nicky’s here to save ya. It’s a Razz team effort over here. I’m legit sprung off this album

    @Grey: Thanks in advance for helping out with the below…

    (1) % chance that Desmond gets SS/MI eligibility this season?

    (2) Now do you like Desmond more than Khrush Davis in a 6×6 (w/BBs), 12-team keeper league? I was pretty sold on Khrush before this move.
