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.

You would think that with one of the host’s of this Guide being nicknamed Jesus, there would be at least one corny reference to it when we discuss Jesus Aguilar. But amazingly (grace), there were none. None, with the exception of this intro. Instead, we detailed just why Jesus Aguilar may be as good as we saw him be in 2018. As obvious as that last statement may sound, repeating isn’t always a cake walk. Aguilar may, nay! Aguilar is as good as we’ve seen him be. Here is some free proof, for just the cost of 5 minutes of your time…

There are so many bad puns I’m tempted to lead with… but we’ll just leave it at, Yusei Kikuchi. Who Say Kikuchi? We say KIKUCHI! I know, that was horrible. And actually, we don’t say Kikuchi. At least not both of us. I mean we do, but to varying degrees. Yup, Ralph and I are split. So help be the tie breaker! If nothing else, watch the video, because I truly believe we teach you more about the latest Japanese import than you likely knew before you press play. And if you like this piece, scroll down to the links for the other guys we’ve covered so far in our 2019 Fantasy Baseball Video Draft Guide.

Hani-ger! Hani-ger! Hani-ger! Is how I chant the Mariner outfielder’s name, reminiscent to another breakout in history. But, was it really a breakout? I mean… he was healthy. Yay! But, the numbers themselves were exactly the same. Is this real life? Oh is it ever! And we have some juicy nuggets to share with you that’ll make you walk around chanting Hani-ger! Hani-ger! Hani-ger! yourself. Watch, learn, comment, discuss. Then go watch another one of these little camera experiments we’ve been throwing together, only go watch another player. (They’re listed below to make life extremely easy on you).

What is in the Houston water? More specifically, what is in the water in the Astros’ clubhouse that the pitchers have been drinking? It’s really more about what they’re spinning, than drinking, and this opening is starting to sound like I’m drinking when I’m trying to spin. Whatevs. The 2019 Fantasy Baseball Video Draft Guide continues with a look at Astros’ new toy, Josh James. Check it out, leave us a comment, and check out the others (if you’ve missed any to this point. See below.)
