What Juan Soto did in 2018 is one for the ages. It seems the only question now is if you believe it was a true representation of what he is, and can become. Is regression in store for the still just 20 year old? Or, are we witnessing one of the next great players, and a future Hall of Famer? We did our best to answer that question for you, as The Baseball Show’s 2019 Fantasy Baseball Video Draft Guide chugs along on Razzball!

    I am in a 20 team. You keep 6 bats 4 SP and 4 RP. I took over an orphan team 2018. I loaded up on young talent and had no pitching. I have Acuna, Eloy for my LF spot. I traded Upton/Soto for Cole/Flaherty. Did I get enough value? I just had too many LF.

      @Marky Mark: I love Flaherty (see that video if you haven’t), but I would’ve definitely opted to keep Soto. Not horrible, just would have tried to move just Upton for just Flaherty if it were me.

    Awesome as always guys! So I already feel too anxious about my 10th pick in a 12 team dynasty. My 16 keepers are Bauer
    Kluber
    Paxton
    Syndergaard
    Kelley Jansen
    Moncada Devers Sano Bregman Lindor Correa Acuna Eloy Tucker Upton Alfaro.
    Please help me pick an ace or future ace like Corbin was last year. I’m guessing Luzardo will probably be gone by pick 10. Pivetta Heaney Lucchesi Giolito Carlos Martinez Toussaint Honeywell Castillo may still be available. Also I need 1st and 2nd base. Peter Alonso will probably be taken Ist round too. Would it be wise to secure either Nathan or Brandon Lowe with my second pick or continue to select another solid pitcher ?
    Lastly is it a must to snag Wander Franco early regardless of how long I have to wait.
    Any wisdom appreciated guys! Thanks!

      @Ian: That’s Kenley Jansen!

      @Ian: You have a pitching staff that is ready to compete now, and a batting lineup that might be a year or two away. If you think you can compete this year I would be inclined to go for a bat … if you are building for the future, I would be inclined to go with Honeywell or Castillo of the SPs you listed.

      You probably would not get anything out of Wander Franco this year or next, and possibly even the next. But guys that are 17 years old that are ranked as a top 5 or 10 prospect with the kind of power and speed profile that Franco has do not come along very often. In a true dynasty league, I would want to snag him for sure … in a keep 16 dynasty league, it is a closer call, but I would still probably want to take a flyer on him.

        @LenFuego: Thanks, that’s awesome. I think I will solidify pitching 1st and work the waivers etc on batting throughout the year. Could even snag 3rd or 4th place this year. Reason being that 3 of my mates have seriously stacked teams. To snag a healthy Honeywell first pick might be worth the risk.
        Do you think there’s a outside chance that Castillo could have ace potential in him?

      @Ian: Thanks for the support, Ian! Castillo is the arm I want from that list, and Nate Lowe is definitely the runner up to Alonso – and I’m not entirely sure it’s by a wide margin. Wander Franco you have to roster for name value alone. Even if you don’t want to wait on his arrival, you should be able to get significant value in a future trade. And because of the hype that is ahead of a guy like Lowe.

    So if I understood correctly: a young pujols amd mcab all wrapped in one but better.

      @aklang: Slightly different, but basically.

    Speaking of unbelievable, the skin on Soto’s face looks waaaay older than 20 years.

      @The Sea Hags: Like Carlos?
