Go ahead, allow yourself a ten-minute cackle sesh after seeing Nick Pivetta listed as a sleeper.  I’ll allow it this one time, then we’re going to get down to business, and no more cackling at what an awful season Nick Pivetta had last year.  No more talk about his 4.77 ERA.  No talk of his 5.05 ERA in the 2nd half.  No talk about how his batting average against, slugging percentage against and wOBA against were all nearly identical from the first half to the 2nd half and none of them were particularly good.  No talk about how lefties hit him like he was a dumpster Fiers.  No talk about how Pivetta made you cry and crawl up into a ball every time he took the ball.  No talk about any of that!  No negative talk anymore after that ten-minute cackle.  Okay, done?  You have another 15 seconds of cackling?  Then get it over with, would ya?!  So, what can we expect from Nick Pivetta for 2019 fantasy baseball and what makes him a sleeper?

He had the sixth worst HR/FB%.  The little voice in your brain, “Wait, I thought we weren’t talking about anything negative after the opening ‘graph.”  This isn’t negative, because he had the 29th lowest fly ball rate.  His average launch angle was 9.9, about the same as Greinke, which works out great for this example — what a coinkydink!  By the way, coinkydink would be the name of my cryptocurrency.  Greinke also has nearly the same HR/FB% as Pivetta, and close enough on the fly ball rate for this example since I’ve already gone down this track this far.  Greinke, however, had a 3.21 ERA and a 3.44 xFIP, whereas Pivetta’s ERA and xFIP were 4.77 and 3.42, respectively.  Or disrespectively, man, you suck!  But Pivetta doesn’t, he was essentially Greinke with almost 2 more Ks per nine.  Greinke has better command, and–THIS ISN’T ABOUT GREINKE!  Pivetta’s BB/9 of 2.80 was plenty good enough for his K/9.  With men on, Pivetta gave up the fifth most home runs.  That isn’t good, but home runs he can fix.  He had 397 feet on average on his home runs.  397 feet doesn’t even get the ball out of parts of his own stadium.  Well, he doesn’t own it, but you know what I mean.  Okay, 397 feet is about average, but he also pitched almost a full run better at home, as most are wont to do.  For reference sake, Jon Gray, who was also plagued with the long ball, averaged 407 feet.  By the way, that’s not “for reference rice wine,” if a sushi chef is reading.  Of course, why you’re really here is because of the Ks.  He had the 18th best swinging strike rate.  His velocity went up to 95 on the fastball, but his bread and butter was the knee buckler.  Though, not a knee buckler like a wounded action hero who was shot in the leg and needs to wrap his belt around his knee.  By the way, just once I want someone in a movie to get shot in the leg and be like, “Damn it, I didn’t wear my belt today.”  That knee buckler was so fantastic Pivetta had the 8th best curveball, a 38.1% K% on his curve and only a 3.9% walk rate on it, while having a 41% swing rate outside the zone on the hook, i.e., hitters don’t know what to do with it and he’s cashing checks while hitters Chase at the Bank.  It makes sense if you don’t think about it too long!  This is a high risk, high reward pick, but there’s no reason why you can’t risk it for where he’s being drafted — currently around 160th overall.  For 2019, I’ll give Nick Pivetta the projections of 12-9/3.86/1.25/208 in 184 IP with a chance for more.

          @Bill Lumbergh: I don’t know how ‘perts are rating him. But I think he had a career year power-wise. I think he’s more of a sub-30 HR guy. And his SB history makes it tough to count on 30 SB’s, let alone 40.

    Grey,
    Totally on board with you. Have him as a keeper and not too worried about it. K’s are there and gotta believe his luck improves with a better defense behind him. Thanks for reminding me why i had Panik attacks every fifth day last year, though. Appreciated the walk down memory lane.

    Grey,

    Which side of the following trade would you prefer?

    Merrifiedl($10) + Clevinger ($13) => Ramirez ($13)

    AL Only 5×5 Auction league with 8 keepers allowed.

    • Bill Lumbergh says:
      (link)

      @bbboston: FWIW I’m a big believer in Ramirez and would do that deal (provided that I had an above average player on my roster to become my new 8th keeper…). Good luck!

    • Slappy Jack says:
      (link)

      @bbboston: like Jose Ramirez? I would need more.
      Merrifield is surprisingly old for keeper considerations (he’ll be 30 in a couple of weeks), and Clevinger is just a guy who had a good year and could possibly have another or possibly not, because he’s also a pitcher which usually are not ideal keepers due to their volatile nature.

      And JoRam is a first round pick

  6. OaktownSteve says:

    Sup Sir Albright of the fantasy realm. Congrats on the NFBC win last year. Hope to get another crack at you this year. You owe me a thanks for tipping you on Yelich last year.
    What do you think of this idea as a new, hybrid format: 5×5 roto, first 23 players taken via standard 260 auction format, followed by a 27 round supplemental draft giving you a draft champy 50 player roster but then also allow a weekly FaaB in season for sweeping up any missed crumbs. Seems like it would be a pretty true test.

    Hey Culligan Man!

      @OaktownSteve: Thanks! I hope you’re in my league too, you were an easy win! Snap! Kidding, it was fun, be nice to have you again… If you take Yelich, you also need to take Blackmon top 10 overall, was it? Are you saying idea as new RCL or for NFBC? Not really crazy about it either way, tbh… Harvey’s a solid guess, I’m going to say Hanley shows up with no team…

      Flukazy! Happy New Year!

      • OaktownSteve says:

        @Grey:

        Took Blackmon I think from the 12 spot and he finished above the guy you took 2 picks earlier…as I recall. I also tried to warn you NYC was going to mess with Giancarlo’s fragile psyche. I made a classic mistake though, Had JD and Machado queued up but pivoted to Blackmon when he “fell.” Just stupid.

        Took Castillo and Berrios as sp 1 and 2. That killed me.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Ouch, yeah, those SPs… Not quite same as my Bauer and Mikolas picks… Though my #1 was Yu, bleh, and I finished top 20 overall!

          • OaktownSteve says:
            (link)

            @Grey:

            My best pick in that league was probably Trienen around the 13tb.

            That Bauer pick was good. I was dead wrong there. We were both on Snell last year. I had some pretty meh safe picks, Rizzo, Rendon. Not terrible but good enough to get me third place basically.

            Did I see you faded to second in Tout?

            Sadly I can’t ever RCL again. Tried last year but I just don’t have it in me any more. Life in the way.

                Competition level is high. You have to be on it every day. Top RCL leagues way more legit than expert leagues. I just can’t keep up with the daily pace. Only weekly for me.

                I think I might have been an early pro-Pivetta voice on this site. Phillies ball park and putrid defense really worked against him.

    Grey –

    Happy New Year, homie! I’m currently laid up at home with a broken ankle, so catching up on the off-season posts while I can.

    In my highly competitive, 9×9 H2H with roto-scoring league, I’m allowed to keep 5 players with no restrictions. I have 6 that I’d really like to keep (Goldy, Hoskins, Harper, Stanton, Soto and Vlad), and I’m having a hard time trying to figure out who I’m going to cut loose. I’m guessing you’re going to tell me to cut Soto or Vlad, but since they’re both only 20, does it make sense to get rid of one of my “older” players?

    Thanks,

    JB

    Looks like I’m gonna be the first to actually comment on your prose, Pastor Grey. I, as both an independent human being and a willing participant in your choir, really dig the preaching. My, the revelations in this prophetic piece. Pivetta… the arrow that pierces the armor of the savage competitors, the slinger of knee-buckling, mind bending deception not seen since Odysseus gouged out the eye of the Cyclops.

    Groundbreaking work, Sir Grey. Thatnks for the steady supply of confirmation bias for me. I enjoy it and appreciate it!

    Thanks for the write-up. I’ve been sitting on him for a while in a dynasty and am hoping for that breakthrough finally.

    Am I wrong in considering Elfin to be a poor-man’s Pivetta?
    I’m sure part of that is their being on the same team. Is there a glossary term for that where you think two pitchers are similar because they’re on the same team?

    • Grey

    Thanks for the write up. Definite sneaky/sleeper pick.

    In a bit of a pickle…about to pick 53rd overall in a 12-team, 50-round NFBC. Currently have
    Lindor
    Stanton
    Rizzo
    Mondesi

    Top SPs available are Strasburg, Corbin, Paxton, Flaherty, Greinke, Taillon, Clevinger, Folty and Berrios

    But I’m salivating at some offensive names still available but likely will be gone before I pick #68:
    Muncy, Albies, G Torres, Springer, Ozuna, Dahl

    I’m thinking you’ll say go with a pitcher. If so, which one?
    Also, if you were leaning hitter, who would that be?

    Thanks Grey!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Albies is still there? Damn… Wait a minute, Springer?! Holy crap, man… Those are tough names to pass… Think you have to go Corbin tho…

      • Squat Cobblers says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Dang! I knew you would say Corbin. He’s likely the best fit on this squad at the moment.

        But, I can easily see Albies at 20/20 and Springer at 28/7. Someone once said “Greed is good!!” (…although I don’t think that ended well:)

        Any chance I could end up with a passable staff if I go ‘hitter’ 5 of the first 5 picks?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          You can get a solid staff still if you pass on pitchers once more, but there’s just more risk… I came in top 20 overall last year and my 1st SP was Yu Darvish, I could’ve passed him…

      @Squat Cobblers:

      I’d go Ozuna for your team there. Really like him. Improved line up. Played hurt last year and was still serviceable.

      But I’m a wait on pitching guy. Albies is another guy I’m eyeballing. I think he’ll make some adjustments. Still top 30 talent there.

      • Squat Cobblers says:
        (link)

        @OaktownSteve: Thanks O’town. I’m a big Cards fan. Would love a bounce back from Ozuna. Just not sure about the health of his shoulder. I know he had some stuff cleaned up at end of October.

            (link)

            @Grey:

            Surprised. He’s a guy I think could look a lot like his 2017 self and be a top 20 hitter. Springer who you looked at there had 3 more steals than Ozuna last year. Anyway why you worrying about steals? He already drafted Lindor and Mondesi. Ozuna has the best shot to lift the BA risk on Mondesi. I bet one of the pitchers on that list makes it back to him anyway. If not he could look at Marquez as well.

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              True, he does have speed, but 28/7 vs. 28/3, all things equal, why not take a few more steals… BA risk is there tho, so that’s a point… Not arguing fully against Ozuna either, bc I don’t dislike him… Just think Springer has fuller #s

          • OaktownSteve says:
            (link)

            @Grey:

            Surprised at that comment. First he took Mondesi early so he’s not looking too much at speed there. Springer had all of 6 steals last year to Ozuna’s 3. Ozuna I think is more like the 2017 guy. For me he’s got a shot to be a top 25 and could help balance the BA risk as well with Mondesi. One of those pitchers will for sure make it back and if not, could look at Marquez.

    I understand that catchers are the bane of everyone’s existence, but, I just inherited a team in a 12 team two catcher dynasty league, 6×6 that includes Gary Sanchez.

    Was watching some film on Glasnow after your post the other day. I do like some things with him. I like that he’s going exclusively from the stretch. I think it helps simplify that tall guy/inconsistent mechanics trap. His pitches don’t look anywhere near as advanced as Snell looked to me coming in to last year. Probably if there is a breakout it’s a year away. Saw an article saying he added some cutting action to his four seam. I watched his start on Sept 28 and one of the first things I noticed was his fastball looked very straight. Went over to brooks and saw that for most of 18 he’d seen a spike in whiff percentage on the fastball from career averages. Then in Sept it dropped down again near career norm. In starts earlier starts last year you can definitely see that cut and then it’s gone again. In fact his horizontal movement in sept does in fact show about the straightest in his career per Brooks. Seems like he traded in some movement for command. I would not be surprised to see him continue that and drop down to a still respectable 9k range. I like the breaking stuff ok, though really like the curve when he buries it

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Good stuff! If he can command his stuff a tad better, I’d take the tradeoff of less Ks… Snell was young, top notch prospect who came into his own… Wasn’t that long ago Glasnow was hyped as same… Of course, for Glasnow to be an ace, things need to line up perfectly… More than likely Glasnow is solid #3 with some iffy starts here and there…

      • OaktownSteve says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I think the post hype Rays narrative is coloring that a little. I do think there’s upside. Rays can coach em up maybe. Solid 3 is a good call though innings might be an issue.

        @Grey: Lucchesi scares me. Fastball/change only on 96+% of pitches. Walk rate looks great but some metrics show he was actually extremely wild. I can see hitters getting more accustomed to the arm angle after seeing him a few times, especially if he doesn’t develop a consistent breaking pitch.

        Might be a value where he is going in the mid 60s for SP but I’m staying away unless he falls to me late.

    Grey!!!

    Great SleeperS report!!

    a. Man, you did it again! I’m a believer in Pivetta! Hopefully he can fix the HR situ but the Greinke parallel is way too eerie to be a coincidence.

    b. Sorry for the late arrival, just got in…My wife informed me yesterday that I had to accompany her while she goes for facial treatment (get your collective minds out of the gutter, the treatment was CO2 and delivered with microneedles!!). It was supposed to last 1.5 hours and ended up lasting 2.75 hours!! Oh, man! Brought a few good books plus my Hellish Sudoku puzzle book. What we do for love!

    c. Have a nice weekend!

    Cheers,
    Ante

      A. Thanks! B. Microneedles, is that like the carny guy with the needles in his face? C. You too!

        @Grey: Grey!!!

        It’s some procedure to deep clean the pores of the face. My wife said it burned like hell. So four visits to this dermatologist each with the CO2 treatment and these micro needles. Their job is to blow out the bad stuff out of the pores at that micro level, I guess.

        Cheers,
        Ante

          But aren’t needles pushing in the bad stuff? You should ask her if they have microstraws…

  16. I am going for it this year in a DEEP NL 260 5×5………..
    I have a $2 tatis and paddack to trade this year ($5 raise each year) for the pieces to win. These two do not go on my active roster to fill during the auction BTW.
    My “maybe keepers” SP are:
    L Castillo 22 – Syndergard 30 – Wheeler 20 – and (probably not) Scherzer at 43

    1)Should I trade now before the auction for say a $10 pivetta & $9 V Velasquez who are probably keepers in 2020 with a $5raise each ?
    2)which pitchers should I keep at those salaries?

    I have Aguilar and Soto at $13 to allow for a bit higher ratio in P going into the auction

      2. Those are not great salaries

      1. Who can you trade? Any of them work for me for trading… I like Wheeler, Castillo the best for their price

    5×5 H2H 12 Team and 6 keepers

    Lindor, Arenado, Judge, Marte, Bauer, Verlander

    other options are Diaz, Andujar, Mikolas, and D.Gordon.

    Leaning toward first six but wondering if Diaz over Verlander makes sense?

      Grey says:

      Nah, 1st six

    Was all over Pivetta thanks to your tips last year Sir Grey. Some ups and downs- when it really came down to it Pivetta knocked me out of my dynasty league playoff semifinals by not coming up with a win vs the Mets in that Sunday Little League game toward the end of the season. I was pretty pissed, but homey is going nowhere. My league mates are surprised I didn’t kick him to the curb for his insolence. Anyway, this makes me feel better about tendering an extended contract to Slick Nick Pivetta/putting all the holes in ya sweater/the knee buckletta, hopefully next year a money getter, etc…

    Great stuff Grey! Love the sleeper posts and the eligibility write up (so helpful!).

    I’m in a 10 team dynast league with wonky stats and we’re starting to decide on keepers / trading is open now. I got lucky over the years and have a stacked rotation, but my offense has fallen off a lot because of age. We use HR, TB, BB, OBP, SLG, and NSB for hitters, QS, ERA, WHIP, K/9, BB/9, and NSV+H for pitchers.

    Is a rotation of Strasburg, Corbin, Clevinger, Marquez, Lucchesi, Lester, Weaver, Boyd, Fiers, and Velasquez safe enough? Looking to trade my scherzer and kluber for hitting.

      Grey says:

      No problem, thanks! Plenty safe, you can trade those guys…

    Grey, keeper league trade opinion. Currently have Machado as a 7th. Have an offer on the table for a 1st round pick for him. Our first round will be loaded with guys who can’t be kept anymore, so at that spot I’ll probably be deciding between Yelich, Stanton or Altuve. I could keep someone like Odor, Hicks, Ray, Dahl, Bieber in rounds 12-15 and draft Stanton for Manny, plus regain my 7th round pick. What do you think? Trade or stay?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Manny in the 7th round? You should keep that

    Grey,

    I just put my name in for Oscar host…you never know…

    Which side you like for pre season trade

    My Urias and Gleybar or his Corey Seager

    Urias was a fringy keeper for me anyways…

              By viewing party, I mean watching it in separate places and reconvening on Razzball to talk about it, so we kinda did it already!

    In a 5 by 5 nl onl. I traded a 2 dollar Corbin in option year for a 10 dollar Soto with 2 years plus option. Having sellers remorse… tell me I’m silly.

    Pivetta also gets a bump as the team defense improves: the team defense can pretty much only go up from last year’s. Adding Segura – and especially McCutchen in place of Hoskins in left field – helps significantly. If the Phillies add Machado or Moustakas to take care of the 3rd base defense, then we’re really talking. This article today explains if and whom defense would help on the Phillies pitching staff: https://www.mlb.com/phillies/news/phillies-defense-affects-pitchers-differently/c-302452504
