They said our chemistry would never be the same. They said Halp couldn’t do two podcasts a week. They said Ralph couldn’t handle a third article, along with this podcast, a Youtube show, a full time job, a wife, three kids, etc … Who said this? Probably no one. But you have to find something to motivate you, ya know? Ralph starts off the podcast by talking about his road trip to Yankee Stadium last weekend. We then move onto some of the hot performers over the last week, including Rhys Hoskins, Dustin Fowler, Clint Frazier, Rafael Devers, Kolby Allard, and Walker Buehler. Finally, we save the best for last, and close the show by talking about Yoan Moncada and Aaron Judge. It’s the latest edition of the Razzball Prospect Podcast:

    Hey Halp, first time commenter, long time listener. Who’s this Yoaban Moncoocha?

      @Ralph Lifshitz: No idea. But if I had to guess, it’s a picture you have on your computer in the same folder you keep your small, thick righty stash :)

    I’ll be listening to this whizz with my claws up the whole damn episode.

    What are your thoughts on Luis Perdomo going forward? Thinking of trading Braeden Ogle and TJ Zeuch for him in a really deep dynasty. Is that a decent trade?

    • Halp

      I think Perdomo has a chance to be a decent #4-ish starter, and in San Diego and the NL West, could put together some solid ratio years. Zeuch and Ogle both probably have higher upside, but obviously are further away from the bigs. If you need a healthy arm that might not kill you, I can see pulling the trigger, but overall, I would stick with Ogle and Zeuch.

    dynasty league
    5×5 roto plus holds and ops.

    Tanaka and C. Frazier (NYY) for Isan Diaz and Darvish

    Which side?

    Thanks

      @Jimmy: Gimme the Darvish side. Frazier and Diaz are close enough that it doesn’t close the gap between Darvish and Tanaka.

    Would u drop contreras and pick up Lucroy??

    • Halp

      Halp says:

      @Adam: I’m toying with the idea of dropping Contreras in one league too. Don’t have the option of Lucroy, but yea, I would make that move.

    I enjoyed the podcast today. In a deep dynasty do you prefer Welker or Gatewood? The formers park obviously tempts me but the latter is older and can move quicker plus his home park isn’t so bad. Thanks.

    • Halp

      Halp says:

      @Howard: Thanks. I think you have to take Gatewood for the reasons you mentioned. Plus, Welker is far enough away, and Colorado is looking like a good enough team that there is a decent chance he gets dealt.

    These prospect podcasts are the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    Colton Welker is my new favorite thing in the world … er, I mean, new favorite prospect to obsess over …

    There’s something magical in dynasty formats when one combines the words ‘prospect’ and ‘Rockies’.

    Great job fellas, and thank you!

      @Racehorse: awesome, racehorse! Thanks. And obviously, right there with you on welker.

    What’s the path Hoskins rides to fantasy success? Who does he look like if he pulls it off, especially coming from the not-so-hyped prospect level? I’m debating between adding Hoskins, O’Neill, Calhoun, Alford.

    Main goal is 2018 starter as possible trade bait for a rebuilding team in a month. Feel like a guy tearing up AAA will look more enticing to prospective suitors.

    Thoughts? thanks!

    • Halp

      Halp says:

      @jon: His path is probably directly linked to Tommy Joseph, who has been hitting better the last couple games. He hits the ball in the air a ton, and makes good contact, so there is a chance he can provide power and average in the majors.

      Those guys you listed are definitely all very close right now. Hoskins seems closest to getting the call, but Alford will likely rank the highest on traditional mid-season prospect updates, which affects trade value a lot. It completely depends on your league and who you are trading with though. Some guys value the traditional up the middle talent, while others like the fantasy friendly, out sized minor league numbers.

      @Marti: I’ll take scherzer side

    Halp! I’m kinda diggin’ on Scott Kingery. Looks like he has joined the launch angle revolution this year and is hitting a TON of fly balls (54.5%) and very few ground balls (24.7%), which is a far departure from his previous seasons in the Minors. Also, he’s showing a much better approach at the dish with an 11.8% walk rate while striking out 22.8%. He’s a smallish dude listed at 5’10” 180, but also has speed to burn. I’d love to hear you and Ralph go in on him and perhaps his teammate at AA Reading Andrew Pullin. Let’s find some sleepers! Shhhhhh
