Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, welcome to Foro Sol in beautiful Mexico City, for the first annual Ralph vs. Lance Minor League All-Star Beisbol Spectacular. That’s right! Broshitz has a venue, fresh unis, and our pick of the litter in the first half. We talk some of the stars, some of the breakouts, and some of the pop-ups. We open the show with some of the notable promotions, the Nick Senzel fallout, and my first hand looks at 2019 draft prospect Zack Thompson. Then we move right in to reveling our starting nines for the big game. It’s a star studded event! As always, big shouts to our sponsor Rotowear! You can order the Rotowear shirts I spoke about on the show by heading over to RotoWear.com and entering promo code “SAGNOF” for 20% off the highest quality t-shirts in the fantasy sports game. It’s the latest edition of the Razzball Fantasy Baseball Prospect Podcast:

    Been hearing a lot about Drew Waters and O’Neil Cruz lately. Are these guys making big moves in rankings? High upside guys, especially Drew. ?
    Thx

    same league from a few posts ago. the detail still posted, skip to bottom if remembered those.

    16 team dynasty with holds, OPS, QS, K/9, k/BB, hits, total bases, net steals, OBP over AVG. max 7 man prospect lists but you can only send down guys somebody owned at start of year (so none of my NA’s on active roster can be sent down). 130 AB/50 innings guys have to come up or get dropped. roto and we have 4 fake rosters with all players benched for the prospect lists/DL’s over 5 (yahoo so there’s a max DL on rosters itself)/suspended guys (again, for some asinine reason in yahoo suspended counts as active player)
    C zunino
    1B valencia (3B/RF)
    2B jose ram (3B)
    3B yolmer (2B)
    SS semien
    CI solarte (2B/SS/3B)
    MI d.travis (peraza outbid by somebody else)
    LF jd mart (RF)
    CF meadows (all OF)
    RF mookie
    OF brocktune (LF/RF)
    OF bader (CF/RF)
    util heyward (CF/RF)
    util kipnis (2B/CF, sort of streamer)
    BN kiermaier (CF)
    BN mancini (1B/LF)
    BN krispie young (streamer @ BOS and a weak lefty)
    DL adams, franchy, r-zimm, longo, miggy
    NA (4) rooker, marsh, hanram
    SP (1800 max innings): wood, hamels, morton, stripling, montas
    RP (max 6): fields, c.green, morrow, yates, rivero, kimbrel
    DL carrasco, cueto, morrow
    NA paddack,
    prospect list: kieboom, trammell, mcmahon, c.stewart, k.lewis, m.baez, javier

    z.white, who i used to have on my prospect list till he fell down yours in march is still unowned. me better off with him over which of my NA’s? further news at least makes it likely hanram isn’t going to prison as a speedball kingpin. also seuly, y.diaz, benson available over my guys. i’m pretty sure marsh isn’t being overpassed here, but maybe the others.

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: I still don’t think Hanley is getting signed. I’d do what I could to add Seuly. Benson depends on who Z White is? I’m not sure.

        @Ralph Lifshitz: oops. z.collins, somehow confused him and m.white LAD SP who i just dropped recently.

    I haven’t had a chance to listen yet but looking forward to it later.

    Can you please rank these guys that are available in a deep 20 league? Tirso, Merrell, Kevin Smith, Starling Heredia, and Bubba Thompson. Any jump out as glaring adds?

    I really appreciate all your work!

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      @Sport: Tirso, Bubba, Smith, Pitbull. Add Tirso.

    Ralph,

    Thanks for all of the information you provide! I joined a 20 team H2H 6×6 league several years ago and it’s very hard to find information to stay ahead of the pack. Everyone carries between 3-5 NA on their roster, but based on your advice I managed to grab Juan Soto and Austin Meadows before they were noticed.

    We get keep 8, and I am still in the hunt this year [currently 3rd] and looking to stay competitive, but focused towards any possible keepers, especially pitchers. Are any of these worth a longer look and putting up with the bumps for the future? I am using or holding the following young pitchers:

    • Domingo Germain
    • Frankie Montas
    • Matt Strahm
    • Dyan Covey
    • Fernando Romero
    • Jalen Beeks
    • Freddy Peralta
    • Jon Loaisigia
    • Austin Voth

    Also any thoughts on Nathan Eovaldi, Colin Moran, David Fletcher, Peter Alonso and Ben Gamel who are fill-ins on my roster would be appreciated.

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @Screwballs: Covey, Beeks, and Voth are just depth guys, and I’d look to upgrade them to better arms. Garrett Whitlock being one, Shane Baz another, and see if Taylor Hearn is owned.

      I like Moran and Alonso long term. Honestly I haven’t seen a lot of Fletcher. What a I have he seems like a replacement level guy, Gamel is a fringe starting OF, but if he’s playing he won’t kill you. Eovaldi is fine in certain matchups.

        @Ralph Lifshitz: Very helpful, including the new names. Thanks again!

      @Brian: Yeah, I’d do that. You’re getting older but you have Trea and you upgrade Gray to Verlander whole strengthing your bench. I’d try and deal one of your OF for a 1B next.

  8. Manny says:

    What are your thoughts on Nathaniel Lowe? .350 plus AVG, 15 HRs, 1.000+ OPS & great BB/K ratio across 2 levels now. Is he someone to grab now in dynasty leagues as a late bloomer who has figured it out, or is this a mirage? Before this year he was not highly thought of and his numbers were poor. A recent CBS article compared him to Goldschmidt which seems ridiculous but it really grabs your attention. Other scouts have him as a platoon DH at best. What do you think, is the production this year for real?

    dynasty league 6×6 with ops. currently have yu cheng chang and antuna in the minors. would you swap them with any of the following—-luis garcia (was), chisholm, arauz, blankenhorn, edmundo sosa, lucius fox, willi castro,

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @brian: Hold on Antuna. He’s going to be good. Add Garcia and dump Chang.

  10. Scott says:

    Who is best stash keeper asset of the 3: florial, kiriloff or Domingo Santana. I am not concerned about this year. I have a limited amount of na spots. Florial struggled before injury but was rising last year. Kiriloff has been rising this year. Santana has no place to play in mil. I’m not sure if last year was a fluke. Thanks

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:

      @Scott: Kirilloff

  11. David says:

    Looking forward to your rankings. This will help make my mind up but who is the bottom 2? Antuna, Luis Garcia, Mitch white, wander Javier, Khalil lee, Nathan Lowe, anyone else that popped up this year.. I have been a bad fantasy baseballer. Haven’t checked up as regularly as I like. Any names I should search for? Thanks as always Ralph
