It’s beginning to feel like it’s not an offseason without a trade of Wil Myers.  In three short years, he’s gone from the Royals to the Rays and now on to the Padres.  Only place he can go from the Padres is the Tokyo Yakult Swallows.  They would hope Myers could carry them against their most hated rivals, the Yakuza Spits.  The Miller Lite-inspired commercials between the Spits and Swallows in Japan are a real crack up.  Tastes great!…Spit it out!…Tastes great!…Spit it out!  Before Myers is pushing daisies in the NPB, he’ll bide his time in San Diego and try to right this rapidly sinking prospect boat.  “Ice-cold sophomore year right ahead!”  In all for realliness, I was planning on jumping back in the Myers sinking ship prior to this trade, and I don’t think it kills his value.  Would I prefer he went to Coors?  Yeah, well, dur.  I also don’t think a 24-year-old former top prospect is washed up just because he had one bad year after fracturing his wrist.  Takes time to bounce back from that type of injury and one thing we have is time.  Well, you with the oxygen mask and cigarette might have less time.  In a few years, we’re going to look back at Myers’s 2014 as it should be viewed now, a blip.  I’m about as sure of that as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti.  Or as sure of it that I’m listening to too much Toto’s Africa.  Sure, Petco won’t do him any favors, but if his wrist is at hundred percent there shouldn’t be any problems getting at least 20 homers.  Shoot, he could hit 10 homers in just his road games in Coors and Arizona.  For 2015, I’ll give him 61/20/72/.277/8.  Definitely sleeper material here.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw this offseason for 2015 fantasy baseball:

Brandon Morrow – Signed with Padres.  This is one of those signings that immediately makes fantasy baseballers see wavy lines.  “What if Morrow stayed healthy all year?”  Wavy lines.  “Can you imagine Morrow in Petco?”  Wavy lines.  “Why can’t I get reception to these pay stations that I don’t pay for?”  Wavy lines.  Morrow should be a solid upside gamble– Shoot, before I finished that sentence he hurt himself.  For 2015, I’ll give him 5-7/3.17/1.21/112 in 120 IP.

Ryan Hanigan – Heads to the Padres with Myers.  Hanigan has 25 homers and 1 steal in 558 major league games.  He’s one heckuva pitch framer though, so if your league counts Pitch Framing, go crazy!

Steven Souza – Went to the Rays in the three-way Myers trade.  Souza is a little cheaper than Myers and helps build up the Rays’ horn section.  Souza might be the last remnants of Bowden fluffers in Washington.  Get a load of this– Hmm, maybe that’s a bad turn of a phrase when talking about fluffers.  Anyway, look at his last few years:  11 HRs, 25 SBs in 2011; 23 HRs, 14 SBs in 2012; 16 HRs, 30 SBs in 2013 and 18 HRs, 26 SBs last year in Triple-A.  You, “Please don’t tell me the bad news, I refuse to listen!”  Sorry, You.  He looks like he might not hit .240 without some favorable BABIP luck.  Yes, the Rays have their 2nd Desmond Jennings.  Call Souza, Desmond 2 Too.  This won’t be the last time you hear about Souza this offseason, and he could be an absolute steal in drafts.  For 2015, I’ll give him 58/12/65/.234/22 with lots of upside.

Burch Smith – Part of the same trade to the Rays.  He’ll likely start the year in the minors since he missed most of 2014 with a forearm injury.  I’m rooting for Burch’s return.

Jake Bauers – Also heads to the Rays.  That’s if he can get there in the next 24 hours.  In real time!

Rene Rivera – Also to the RaysRene Rivera was once a sexy, just-one-of-the-guy-types seen in movies like Get Shorty and Tin Cup– *checking notes*  Yeah, that’s right, but now she’s a major league catcher.  Rene has 12-homer power and legs that go on forever.  For 2015, I’ll give him 41/12/49/.244.

Jake McGee – Having elbow surgery to remove loose bodies.  Sounds like a bad CSI episode mashed up with Innerspace.  McGee won’t have an official timetable until the spring, but is likely out until at least May.  What’s worse:  Ernesto Frieri is now the Rays closer.  Someone somewhere must’ve decreed the Rays can’t have anything easy after the eighth inning.

Melky Cabrera – Signed with the White Sox.  Who lit a fire under Jerry Reinsdorf’s ass?  The Dorf’s on a spending spree (that was the one where Tim Conway, as The Dorf, reenacts the Rodeo Drive spending spree from Pretty Woman).  Some players seem to languish on lousy teams and never get to play for an offensive juggernaut.  Melky is the exact opposite.  He seems to always land somewhere he’s going to rack up counting stats.  Maybe it’s his HTML skills.  Maybe it’s that most powerhouse teams are run by men that are lactose intolerant and they’re trying to make up for their inadequacies off the field by getting Melky.  It’s prolly the latter reason.  For 2015, I’ll give him 85/14/65/.304/8.

Chase Headley – Signed with the Yankees.  He’ll play 3rd base and maybe cede time to A-Rod on the rare occasion, which is appropriate since A-Rod’s known in strip clubs by the nickname, Chase Manly Head.  If Headley were to have played all of last season in New York, he would’ve hit about 14 homers, which would have been his 2nd highest home run total in his career.  Sadly, the way offense is going 14 homers is going to lead the league in a few years.  For 2015, I’ll give him 67/16/71/.274/6.

Chris Capuano – Signed with Yanks.  This is a terrible signing because before Capuano signed, when you asked a Yankee fan how bad was their rotation, they’d shrug and struggle to explain.  Now, they just have to say, “It’s so bad Capuano’s in our rotation.”

Justin Ruggiano – Traded to the Mariners.  Ruggiano is currently slotted into the everyday lineup, but I’m guessing the Mariners got him so he could ‘accidentally’ collide with Logan Morrison.  “Should I hashtag before or after my witty retort–Oh, crap!” *crash*

Edinson Volquez – Signed a two-year $20 million deal with the Royals.  He should send nineteen-point-nine million dollars worth of Omaha Steaks to the Pirates pitching coach, Ray Searage, for the holidays.  Edinson is gonna be like that State Farm commercial where the wife catches her husband talking to someone late at night and thinks it’s a mistress.  Only in Edinson’s case it’ll be him talking to Searage, “No, I know you don’t play the Angels this year, but could you look at some of their scouting reports for me?” For 2015, I’ll give him 10-12/4.24/1.40/136.

Michael Morse – Signed with the Marlins.  I thought it was sick and twisted how Loria would sign all of these offseason guys with the obvious intention of getting rid of them at the first trading deadline, but this Morse signing is just too much.  In the last three years, Morse has 14 homers in April and no two months combined have more.  So, of course, by April 30th, the Marlins will be in first with an explosive first month by Morse only to watch him on May 1st pull his hammy with his oblique.  For 2015, I’ll give him 56/18/62/.262.

Alex Rios – Signed with the Royals.  He has a ton of performance-based incentives in his contract like, “Are you at least pretending to care?” “Okay, we know hustle is asking a lot, but maybe you gait a little longer,” and the final clause, “Don’t curse out our fans.”  Last year, Rios’s batted ball profile suggests that he’s getting old, but his 2011, when he hit 11 homers, suggested the same and then he turned on his heart light in 2012 and 2013.  The only difference is now he actually is getting old.  He’ll be 34 years old in February, which is not an age when players go out and hit 20 homers and steal 35 bases after hitting 4 homers and stealing 17.  His projections are hard to pin down due to the swings in value from year to year and because the Royals could plug him into the three hole or leadoff or 7th.  For 2015, I’ll give him 72/14/67/.274/20.

Jed Lowrie – Signed with the Astros.  Last year, Lowrie had a 14% strikeout percentage.  On the Astros, that’s downright Wee Willie Keeler-ish!  Hopefully the other Astros don’t feel like Lowrie’s putting them on the shine with his big city attitude towards the chucking of their whifflesticks at balls in the dirt.  Robbie Grossman yells, “Don’t worry about where we put our whifflesticks, Lowrie!”  Then Chris Carter steps in the middle, “I may look like Ryan Howard, but I’m a gentle giant like the Green Mile guy and I won’t let no warring happen between teammates!”  Then Lowrie and Robbie Grossman begrudgingly shake.  That’s all assuming the Astros are broadcast in black and white.  If they’re not, I’ll give Lowrie the projections 54/14/58/.242/2.

John Mayberry – Signed by the Mets in hopes a -berry in the lineup will bring back the (non-drug) offense.  Perhaps the front office is the one on coke these days.

Brett Anderson – Signed with the Dodgers.  On October 2nd of 2015, Brett Anderson and Brandon Morrow will start against each other for their respective 30th starts of the year.  And then the world will explode.  For 2015, I’ll give Anderson 7-2/3.06/1.12/79 in 115 IP.

Matt Joyce – Signed with the Angels because The Sciosciapath refuses to let me have anything nice and I just posted my C.J. Cron sleeper.  SonavaScioscia!

Kyle Blanks – Signed a minor league deal with the Rangers to likely platoon.  One side of the platoon is Moreland, the other side takes up more land.

Kahuna!

Sorry for the late entry! Better late than never!

1. Came home from hell on December 15. Before that had to make myself what the Germans call ‘uhrlaubsfrei’ meaning basically everything you have to do before you go on leave. Hope I spelled it right.

2. Went back to hell to have planned surgery to correct my nasal septum and remove two polyps on December 17. I was in the wrong place at the wrong time in a pool hall on February 11, 1994. Some guy sucker punched me and then his friend sat on my while the guy continued to “literally” put the boots to me. After they told a friend that they did it for kicks and that it wasn’t personal; I was moved by this. Anyway, fast forward to 20 years later and I can’t breathe and the doctor says what the H, have an operation and all will be well again.

3. As part of the recovery process, I’m not supposed to laugh or smile because the stitches in my nose don’t dissolve for another 3 or 4 days. So, of course, I…

4. Come and read at Razzball. I was cracking up again on a steady dose of you, Sky (again!!), Magoo and J-FOH on the Beltre/Cruz paradigm and ‘the sweetest swing in MLB history – Edgar “not to be confused with Tino” Martinez!

Man, long live Razzball!!! With this scant information and the in-depth intelligence and the zeal from all readers to learn and share more this place is the place to be.

Happy belated Chanukah!

Cheers,

So how does Kemp, Upton, Norris, and Meyers change the fantasty value of Mr. Jedd Gyorko? He certainly will no longer be a middle of the line up bat, but now he has some guys that can hit pitching about AAA level around him? Do you like Gyorko more now or less?

I was keeping up with the Myers trade talk on twitter. Some interesting things came up that are a bit worrisome for Pads fans. Myers came into camp last year thinking he had ‘made it’ and basically didn’t train very hard. He played just a hair north of league average his rookie year in terms of power. If he can’t get motivated to be better than that, there’s not much hope for greatness there.

Also, a lot of people are looking at the Souza/Myers swap as basically tit for tat and given the numbers to date, it’s kinda hard to argue it. Similar BB% and K%. Similar ISO. One is just a household name and the other considered organizational depth.

At this point, I’m all for drafting Souza for fantasy since he’ll go later than Myers and won’t have to compete for the name and might put up a similar line.

Big Magoo
Reply to  Sky
7 years ago

@Sky: I agree with all of this. Souza is considered to lesser prospect than Myers due to his age, but I don’t see much difference between the two in terms of total value. Souza’s size/power/speed combo is extremely rare. The Ks are a concern (as they are with Myers), but he has a chance to be a solid late bloomer ala Nelson Cruz. Fantasy-wise, he looks like he could put up a couple of prime BJ Upton years (.240/20/30). I’ll probably be owning him in a few leagues next season.

Back in the day I was in a longterm fantasy league with a bunch of friends – a real ridiculous group of characters.

There was the one guy who was really dedicated but still managed a mediocre team *every year* for almost a decade. Every September he’d post an indignant rant on the message board about how he’s never going to play fantasy again.

There was the guy who, even after several years, probably couldn’t name more than a dozen baseball teams off the top of his head.

There was the guy who was super-competitive and for some reason only ever traded with the guy who couldn’t name all the teams.

And then there was the guy who tripped and fell into a championship early in the league’s history. Following this championship, he’d never miss an opportunity to remind everyone that he’d won a championship before. Also following this championship, he never finished in the top half of the league again. Not coincidentally, year after year after year he insisted on drafting the same roster as his faded championship team. Occasionally a breakout player would fall into his lap. He’d take this as evidence of his Championship Management. The rest of us would just roll our eyes.

Years later, the league has long since folded. I now comment on fantasy baseball under a pseudonym. Championship Management guy manages a real baseball team under the name Brian Cashman.

I think the Royals & Rays saw something in Myers that they didn’t like. I don’t understand why they would move a right handed, power guy for peanuts. I’m staying away like he’s infected with Ebola. I’ll let someone else take the risk this year.
Unless he falls really far down the draft board. I’m not touching him until the late 80’s.

Plus, it’s the Padres. They’re like the Philadelphia 76’ers of baseball. I don’t see any incentive for him to try hard 50 days into the season. I’m calling him a bust until he shows signs of life!
Bryce Harper & Hanley are guys I’m avoiding like the plague.
I’m going all in on Panda & Donaldson (Rodgers Center Yummy) this year. I can see em crushing those parks, plus NY & B-More. Tasty treats :-)

@Bye Felicia: I think Crush will fall into a nice value position after last year. I predict him to bounce back (adderall dependent) Ha!

Team ineptitude doesn’t necessarily translate to fantasy value. The 76’ers have 5 guys that are fantasy assets

@Sinner Man: Yeah I know. Still doesn’t mean that the value is worth rostering over other players. There’s sixers starters on waivers in 12’ers because the fantasy value isn’t there. There’s 6th men putting up better %’s than starters on that squad.

@Carlos Quentin:

Go take some fungos. I need you to play first base Carlos on my NFBC team. Or get your ass traded to the AL and DH.
