What Juan Soto did in 2018 is one for the ages. It seems the only question now is if you believe it was a true representation of what he is, and can become. Is regression in store for the still just 20 year old? Or, are we witnessing one of the next great players, and a future Hall of Famer? We did our best to answer that question for you, as The Baseball Show’s 2019 Fantasy Baseball Video Draft Guide chugs along on Razzball!

He removed the balls from his arsenal, no pun intended, and got back on track to being one of the premiere starting pitchers in baseball. Jameson Taillon was part of a heralded crew of young Pirates, and has stood the test of time to now become Pittsburgh Ace. He sure pitched like one in 2018, putting up career highs across the board. While nothing major jumps out about him individually, is there something that should worry you about his chances of repeating another Top 10 performance?

Sometimes all you need in life is a second chance. For Max Muncy, he’s making the most of it. Cast aside by the Oakland A’s, the burly utility guy has found a home in Los Angeles. His power display lasted the entire season, and propelled him onto the leaderboard for home runs. Was it enough to make you believe it can last? Prospect Jesus and I put him under the microscope in our latest addition to the 2019 Fantasy Baseball Video Draft Guide.

When I think of Blake Snell, all I can hear is Sheek Louch’s voice in ‘Wild Out’ from The Lox…

What’s a pitcher gotta do to make a half a million?! Must I wave it at your children?

In other words, what more than a Cy Young award does the left handed throwing Ace have to do to prove he is one of the best pitchers in Baseball?! Looking at ADP, it feels flat out disrespectful! But then at the same time, maybe it’s not. And even if it is, does it mean you should draft him? We went over it all, so you don’t have to!

There are few things you need in life, but Ramon Laureano just may be one of them. At least, for your Fantasy Baseball rosters in 2019 that is. Now with the Oakland A’s, Laureano wasn’t a highly ranked prospect, but he was certainly respected by most prospectors. His blend of average, power, and speed, is borderline All Star level caliber. He finally has a home and a clear path to at bats. If you weren’t paying attention, just be glad you get to watch us break him down so you don’t miss out!

Duuuude! (that’s how Californians begin, right?) Quit playing games with my heart. Who are you? The real you, Cody. You seemed to go thru a transformation… to something even better than the good we thought you already were. And then you set the bar; HIGH. Too high for you to replicate, or will you have to reimagine? I believe. I believe in you, Cody Bellinger. This is our ode to you!

Prospect Jesus (Ralph Lifshitz) has plenty of children throughout the Minor Leagues. Players he has a unique affinity for, all of whom generally become stud Major Leaguers. But how many of them actually share a name? Is it Jesus, Jr? In an age rampant with Juniors in the game, maybe we should refer to Jesus Luzardo as Jesus, Jr. There’s no denying his talent, so sit back and listen to just how good Ralph’s offspring is, and how he can help your Fantasy Baseball teams!

Walker Buehler is really, really, really, ridiculously good at pitching. It’s almost unfair the Dodgers can throw Kershaw from the left side, followed up by Buehler from the right. Hey, maybe that’s why they’ve been playing in November lately (well, if they could’ve won more than 1 game that is). With all of the greatness Buehler adds, does it make him elite for Fantasy Baseball purposes as well? We covered him next in our 2019 Video Draft Guide (check out Flaherty after you watch this one).

Is this the Ace that no one is talking about? Sometimes we have to take a stand, right? Sometimes we have to go out on a limb, correct? In 2019 I’m planting my flag with the Cardinals up and comer Jack Flaherty, to return better results than the Top 20 Starting Pitcher he’s already being drafted as. Is it too bold to declare him a Top 10 arm? I’m making that claim! And Prospect Jesus didn’t do anything to dispute my declaration, with some eye popping numbers the data provides. Check it out, and see if you agree.
