Ayo whaddup, it’s ya boy Grey Albright aka the Fantasy Master Lothario aka White Chocolate aka The Ladder You Use To Reach New Heights aka The God Particle aka Supreme Court Judge Reinhold aka Paid Overtime aka Close Parking Spot When You’re In A Rush aka Al Swearengen’s Swearing Dictionary aka Teacher, We Don’t Need No Education aka The Weird Guy That Latches Onto The Main Character In Oscar Films I Think His Name Is Paul Dano aka The Butcher, The Baker and The Candlestick Maker aka The Stinging On Your Pinkie Toe When You Clip Too Close aka Paul Anka aka Forget How To Spell My Name And Just Get Me My Coffee!  I just spent thirty minutes looking up Mindy Cohn and whether or not she’s a lesbian.  Ah, the offseason.  You are a soothing mistress that touches my naughty bits with idle hands.  She’s apparently not a lesbian, but a confirmed friend of the gays, and she wanted to lose weight in the 80’s, but the producers asked her to avoid it for the character of Natalie.  They finally agreed to let her wear baggy clothes.  No comment, except the “no comment” comment has the weight of a thousand eye rolls.  A quick preamble about the 2016 fantasy baseball rookie series that is coming from me over the next few weeks.  Rookies could get a post if they meet MLB eligibility requirements, less than 130 ABs or 50 IP.  That means no Michael Conforto, no Greg Bird and no Domingo Santana.  In 2012, the first player I highlighted was Mike Trout.  That wasn’t an accident.  I said in the Mike Trout post, “He’s ranked number one for me. Numero uno. The Big Mahoff.  He’s the big Statue of Liberty in New York, not that girly one in Paris!”  Since then, I’ve attempted to make the first rookie post about a prospect that will be the top rookie for fantasy the following year.  This prospect isn’t no ordinary man, this is the prospect I be seeing in my sleep.  Corey Seager will be your number one 2016 fantasy baseball rookie.  Will Seager be named to the All-Century Team in 85 years or edged out by a robot with grabby hands named the Hitter-Tron that my great-great-nephew will sue over due to trademark infringement only to find out it’s the same Hitter-Tron that once graced this little fantasy baseball blog called Razzball?  Can Seager be the number one shortstop in 2016?  So many questions and so little time to look up Mindy Cohn info!  Anyway, what can we expect of Corey Seager for 2016 fantasy baseball?

The first time I saw Corey Seager swing the mollywhopping stick, my heart stopped.  Rarely, am I overcome by pure emotion when I see someone.  Giancarlo comes to mind, only comes is spelled different.  Seager does that weird heart-a-flutter thing to me.  He is a glorious specimen of specimenness.  In 27 games this past year, he hit .337 with four homers and two steals and replaced Jimmy Rollins for the starting job like Seager was a Cossack and Rollins was Woody Allen’s grammy.  That may not get the significance it deserves because Rollins was awful, but Rollins was awful for an awful manager that kept playing him, so it means Seager was even undeniable to a total moron.  Seager is just…undeniable.  He’s like Kevin Spacey in The Usual Suspects, like Tarantino with Reservoir Dogs, like Kendrick Lamar with Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe.  That undeniable quality that makes you say, “This is the beginning of a huge career.”  In High-A, he demolished pitchers — 18 HRs, .352 in 80 games.  In Double-A, it was more of the same.  Then last year’s Triple-A season happened.  Seager was merely league average, and playing in the PCL.  Of course, he was only 21 years old, but he hadn’t been league average in his professional career up until that point.  At times, he looked overmatched like Mark Wahlberg starring in any role that requires him to look smart (I have more strained metaphors than Tom Verducci!).  In Triple-A, he hit 13 homers and .278 in 105 games.  Like a pimp commands his entourage, that is ho-hum.  So, Grey, that’s me, what do you make of this departure from greatness in Triple-A?  Great question, Grey.  Thank you.  I think he had bad luck with his BABIP (.298 BABIP when he never had lower than .345 prior) and the homers didn’t come because he was playing in the anti-gravity chamber of the PCL and was pressing and whammy’ing.  As he showed when he arrived in the majors, you cannot deny his truer talents.  With Mattingly run out of Hollywood like a 20-something child star and Rollins likely gone, Seager should be the everyday shortstop, a position that takes the short bus.  In 2016, I project Seager will go 81/19/63/.284/8 and be a top five shortstop.  Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to see what Nancy McKeon is up to.

    This post makes me envious of the guy in our keeper league who has Trout, Donaldson, C.Seager, Harvey and some other ace as keepers. I feel like my league failed in letting that happen.

    Anyways, it’s that time of the offseason where I ask you about keepers. I’ll ask you once now and once in March when he ave a bit more info on everyone.

    12-team H2H OBP. Round and years next to each name. Can only keep FIVE.

    Nolan Arenado (11th in 2016, 8th in 2017)
    George Springer (19th in 2016, 16th in 2017)
    Anthony Rendon (20th in 2016, 17th in 2017)
    Edwin Encarnacion (13th in 2016)
    Mookie Betts (18th in 2016, 15th in 2017)
    Yu Darvish or Marcos Stroman (23rd in 2016, 20th in 2017, 17th in 2018)

        @Grey:

        Thank you for the response!

        Out of curiosity, were Yu ready to go from day one, would you have chosen him over Rendon, who’s injury history is offputting?

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Yu or Rendon is the question…Likely go with the bat

            @Grey:

            Same dilemma I was toiling over. I pick second overall and will most likely get Cutch, the next best thing after Goldy who’ll go #1. Guess I got to go pitcher pitcher after that because this league salivates over SP and values it like crazy.

              Grey says:

                @Grey:

                Kershaw, Scherzer, Price and Bum will all be available for me to pick (but all will be gone by pick #25 when I pick again)

                • Grey

                  Grey says:
                  (link)

                  You can take Kershaw with your first pick if you need a pitcher, no?

                  • Left Hangs Lower says:
                    (link)

                    @Grey:

                    Yeah. With the second overall pick in the draft, I can take Kershaw. Only batter worth taking is McCutchen.

                    You think it’d be worth taking Kershaw, keeping 5 hitters vs. keeping 4 hitter, choosing Yu and then drafting McCutch, SP, SP?

                    I admit I like the thought of Kershaw. Never been a SP guy in the first round, but obviously with keepers thing left change.

    12 team H2H 6×6 keeper league w/ OPS & QS

    I’m keeping Bautista, Upton, Lindor, & Bumgarner

    I have the option of either keeping Betts & Matz to go with that group or trading Betts for Rizzo and keeping him but would have to dump Matz. Take Rizzo, right?

        Grey says:
        (link)

        @GhostTownSteve: He looks like he won a lot of these leagues in the 8, 9, 10th rounds… Sorta what my thoughts have always been, you can only lose your draft in the early rounds and then it’s later picks that wins you your drafts

        • GhostTownSteve says:
          (link)

          @Grey:

          For sure true. He had a lot of Arrieta shares. It’s interesting how big an impact single players can have on success. I think Rudy finds this in the back test a lot. If you own one or two of the breakout guys it’s huge. I mentioned that really jumped out in the 2 or 3 year run Hinkleman had. He always had shares of the “it” guys for the year.

          • Grey

            Grey says:
            (link)

            Definitely, in leagues I had Arenado I won, in leagues where I had Arrieta, I should’ve won, and challenged all year… It’s like the year Trout was a rookie and 75% of his owners were in the top 3 in every league… Own the breakout player and it’s half the battle… Who is next year’s? That’s the big question

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @GhostTownSteve: Impressive, but what’s his track record? Any idea? I only ask because maybe he had a great year and it was fluky… Though I’d imagine if he’s spending that kind of money he knows what he’s doing

      • GhostTownSteve says:
        (link)

        @Grey:

        I think it’s kind of a combo. He finished 3 in the 2014 main 15s and probably identified the Prime as a good place to go make money. Not all the top players in NFBC play that format (kind of like the difference between winning the Poker hold ’em signature event and the Omaha event). And with 16 teams in a 204 team field he liked his odds. Seems like a pretty good play. I think there’s no question he knows what he’s doing.

        Definitely not a Razzball reader. Took early pitching, early closers, early catchers (two catcher lead). I guess one thing that struck me is that I’m not blown away by the drafts like, man this guy killed it. I also pulled all his FaaB activity for the year and that tells a lot of the story.

        Also, once again it highlights how different formats can be. Weekly with FaaB is such a different animal than daily with streaming.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          This makes sense, and agreed, his drafts here should be read as “That gives me hope, man, cause he didn’t kill any of these.” I kinda hate the 15 team NFBC with no in-season moves, and it’s the only one I’ve done there…

    Last keeper spot question for next year: 10-team H2H 6×6 (QS+OPS), we keep a max of 8. Khris Davis, who’ll cost me an 18th? Or Jose Quintana, who’ll cost me a 17th at most and somehow racked up the 4th most QS in my league? (I’m already keeping Carrasco + Arrieta). Other option is to throw both back and just draft in that round.

                      I just made three offers which one do you think in order would be good for me?

                      1) Wacha for Davis (said he would do)
                      2) Martinez for Davis (also said he would do)
                      3 ) Marte, Severino and Osuna for deGrom and Wade Davis (this one he said he would seriously think about)

          They had to get Ed and Peggy involved in the other stories, but, as you said, it was a little clunky… I can buy the Indian getting a lead, but he found the car like instantly and Solverson saw the damaged car and knew immediately…

          • nick the dick says:
            (link)

            @Grey: I could actually buy solverson knowing that quickly because his wife had that idea that maybe he got hit by a car, that with the Indian coming to look at it made it kinda obvious. But yeah, very minor things, it’s a great show

              Yup, agreed…And loved the scene with Solverson and his analogy of the guy in Nam who lost his bottom half, that was brilliant…

    Grey,

    The deal took a turn and now draft picks are involved. The offer on the table is this. I give up Cole, Martinez and my second round pick (#10 overall) and I get deGrom, Wade Davis and his first round pick (#2 overall). The draft picks are based on who is left unprotected and will become draft able. I would have 2 first round picks (#2,and #7 in the first round and won’t draft again until pick 23 if I make this deal. I would be looking at conforto and grab him at 2 and a SP at 7. With that being said, would you make this deal. If not please tell me why not. Thanks in advance.
