With B_Don away, Donkey Teeth is joined by CBS Sports’s Scott White to discuss their early season 12 team roto mock draft. But first, DT grills Scott about his on going tout wars battle with Razzball’s own Rudy Gamble. Find out what White has learned from the past two seasons of combat with Rudy, how he approaches 15 team leagues vs. 12 team leagues, and what he feels is changing across the fantasy baseball landscape in general.
As the guys dig into the mock draft results, they highlight the picks of pitchers Blake Treinen, Jacob deGrom, Corey Kluber and German Marquez, sharing some thoughts about each of these arms. The show then takes a turn for the worst when Scott bashes Donkey’s selection of Ronald Acuna at #5 overall. Blows are exchanged and tears are shed before finally, amends are made. Other draft picks that are discussed in depth include Nolan Arenado, Adalberto Mondesi, and Luke Voit. Baseball sausage is the juiciest form of sausage, taste it while its fresh:

    Wallet bulhler round 10 or jack flaherty round 25 who do I keep. My infield round 7 Matt carp Miguel a round 11 or Jesus a round 12 who do I keep. Thanks you guys rock.

      @Ryno: Hey Ryno-
      I’d take Flaherty in round 25, I have Buehler a few spots ahead in my pitchers rankings, but not worth the 15 rounds. I’d take Andujar round 11 for the infield, all 5 are good options though.

    Standard category keeper. Looking to add another starter, but don’t want to give up too much. Would you move C. Seager and Castellanos to get Buehler and Dahl? I already have Trea Turner at SS and could keep Tim Anderson for my 2b/SS slot. Thanks

      @TC: Yes, I like the Buehler side.

    I’m surprised Scott didn’t roast you more for taking all that unproven upside in that draft. I remember reading about it on CBS and thinking you must have been trolling them. I like upside as much as the next guy but your emphasis on youth was almost comical to the point where I wasn’t sure they’d invite you back.

    Solid podcast though!

      @SwaggerJackers: Thanks, Swagger.

      I think I touched on it during the pod, but straight unbridled upside is my go to 12 team draft strategy. I’ll quickly cut bait on the guys that flop and find solid pieces on the wire. It’s such a shallow format.

      Don’t think it’ll work? Come find me in my RCL this year!

        @Donkey Teeth: Do we know for sure Vlad will be up with the big club to start the season?

        Also, can RCL be moved back to ESPN?

          @SwaggerJackers: Highly unlikely Vlad breaks camp, but all the intelligent folks I’ve discussed with are confident he’s on the Kris Bryant timeline …it’ll be a surprise if he isn’t up before May 1.

          I’ll ask Grey about the RCL platform.

    Not sure if Scott reads the comments here, but his 2019 Fantasy Baseball Top 100 Prospects article that came out on CBS earlier this week was really excellent. It is not as in-depth as something the deep prospectniks (like Ralph) would put together, but if you are looking for a nice readable comprehensive summary of fantasy relevant prospects for 2019 and the next few years, it was really well done.

    12 teams, h2h cbs points, 26 rounds, can keep forever (moves up one round each successive year):

    Thor for a 12th or Tatis Jr for a 26th?

    Scoring system caters mostly to power hitting and power pitching.

      @joe:I’d keep Thor and then try to get Tatis back at the draft…
