The reckoning of Broshitz is upon us! After a couple of solo podcasts I’m back with a new partner, and it’s none other than Razzball writer Lance Brozdowski. It’s a great week to start too, as we jump right into our top 20 in First Year Player Drafts. We kick it off with some in depth Shohei Otani talk, then jump into some of the top talents in this year’s class. We talk MacKenzie Gore, Hunter Greene, Keston Hiura, Heliot Ramos, Jo Adell, and many more. The Razzball Prospect Pod is back, and firing on all cylinders.

    Listening now, I just put on an extra pair of socks, assuming first pair will be blown off…

    Awesome job Broshitz!

    I’m already looking forward to the next instalment. Ralph, any chance you can link both of your FYPD rankings here or something?

    If a Stanton to Giants trade goes through, I assume Ramos easily becomes the top prospect in Miami. What do you think about Tyler Beede? He’d have to be a chance to make the rotation in Miami at some point next season. I’m not sure they even have 5 other pitchers right now.

      @Rosscoe:
      Thanks! Appreciate the kind words.

      Here is Ralph’s list we were talking through
      https://razzball.com/first-year-player-draft-rankings-for-2018-dynasty-leagues/

      Mine was done just for this show and I only went 1-11. Just for your reference, I had: Robert, Gore, Wright, Lewis, Hiura, Greene, P. Smith, Adell, Rooker, Baz, H. Ramos.

      I don’t think I’d say “easily” but he’d probably be #1 for me. I like their duo of lefties still (Garrett – TJ victim and draft pick Trevor Rogers) even though they’re not too advanced themselves.

      Ramos is very, very raw. Kind of like Florial from the Yanks’ system with more pop. It’s going to be a case-by-case basis thing for most people. There is a lot of buzz right now, but if you buy into his development, then I understand the case for him being “easily” the top guy in Miami if traded.

      Maybe Ralph has a different perspective on this.

      Beede can start for MIA if traded because of what you’re saying, but I don’t really have a strong opinion with him. He doesn’t have the swing and miss to make me more than passively intrigued.

        @Lance: Yeah, I get it Lance. Thanks.

        Any plans to drop a longer list for FYPD season?

          @Rosscoe:
          Not at the moment, but I will keep you updated if I do.

          I want to put more time into my top 100, which will have some components of the FYPD obviously. I’m going to try and get it out earlier than most.

      @Rosscoe: Yeah I’ll link them, but if you click the index down below they’re both included.

      https://razzball.com/first-year-player-draft-rankings-for-2018-dynasty-leagues/

      https://razzball.com/next-25-first-year-player-draft-rankings/

      Ramos would become the de facto numero uno.

      As for Beede, it depends on his fastball velocity returning, and maintaining his command that comes and goes. If he can figure out the reasons behind his inconsistency (delivery and timing me thinks) then he has a chance to be a solid mid rotation arm. I’ve always liked his change, he throws an average cutter, and a average-fringe curve. I’ve been following Beede for about 8 years now, since he was a senior at a prep school about 20 minutes away. He’s from the next town over from me. The shine is off a little, but he’s going to get a shot this year.

        @Ralph, Cheap Sock Buyer: Thanks fellas.

        Nice breakdown on Beede Ralph. Awesome. One to keep an eye on in the spring for deeper leagues by the sound of it.

        Claws up!

    Great job on the podcast, guys! Dynasty question for you: in dynasty (no salary or contract restrictions), would you rather have Nomar Mazara or Carlos Carrasco? I know it’s kind of apples and oranges, but that’s the point–trying to gauge value.

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      @Anodyne: On it’s face I’ll take Carrasco For right now value, but what’s the team’s ambitions? Can you win? Or are you rebuilding?

        @Ralph Lifshitz:
        Depends heavily on what Ralph is saying for me as well.

        Basically 2018 and 2019 Carrasco, and then it flips to Mazara for me. Wouldn’t really put too much stock in a 32-year-old pitcher unless I was desperate and Mazara will be turning 24.

    Hey man, what a great time of year for us dynasty nerds eh?

    I see you love Florial. I am in a rebuild, maybe 2-3 years from competing and was offered Kepler and Florial for Bour.

    15 teams, 30 mlb/20 milb keep everyone. 5×5 roto.

    You taking the duo? I have Hoskins at 1B and Jose Martinez at CI.

    Thank you for the time

      @Matthew Baumer:
      I might even consider this if you’re 2-3 years out and just getting Kepler. Florial is gravy, I like the deal. Bour’s best year(s) are likely right now or have passed. You get Kepler – who has a nice power-speed combo, is 24, needs a little work, but looks promising – and the lotto ticket in Florial.

      I think Ralph might lean in the same direction as me.
