The dynamic duo known as Halph is back again! For those of you who don’t know who Halph is, that would be yours truly the God MC, and the notorious Michael Halpern of Imaginarybrickwall.com. We’re a super duo, we’re Halph! It’s California week on the Prospect Podcast, as we touch on two teams in the Golden State. We start with the sunny San Diego Padres system, a farm overflowing with talented prospects. The discussion opens with a look at Anderson Espionza’s real life value vs fantasy value. We then play would you rather with Hunter Renfroe and Aaron Judge, discuss Manuel Margot’s future value, and discuss why Chris Paddack is worth a stash in dynasty. I continue to wax poetic about my love of A.J. Preller, and it’s to the point now that you could turn it into a drinking game on this episode. There’s some Razz 30 FYPD talk, oh yeah that’s our new 30 team dynasty league, run by yours truly. We then briefly touch on some of the options in the Giants system. So it’s 80% Padres, 10% bullshizz, and 10% Giants. It’s the latest episode of the Razzball Prospect Podcast.

      @Big Odio: Too bad Halp gives you credit for your preseason picks. Couldn’t even listen. Yet, you have the nerve to talk about Preller. I bet he supports his pal…..sad

        @Ralph Lifshitz: note the time. Was I sober? Not likely. Do I ever listen? Sometimes. Have I been a supportive ear and source of advice over the years? Definitely. You shoukd be ashamed ralphie….ashamed

          @Big Odio: I asked my self “What would Preller do, and I did it. I don’t regret it, I’ll accept my 30 day suspension.

      @Big Odio: I actually mentioned that picking high upside, far off prospects in the Rule 5 draft just to tank and stash them on the MLB roster for a season is shady. It’s not what the intent of the rule was.

          @Big Odio: before the season for post season awards. I know you nailed the sleepers, I mean how could I forget that! But I thought you also nailed like MVP, ROY, etc. I’d look myself but I don’t care enough.

    Great cast, Halph! Looking forward to targeting Renfoe late.

    1. Given SD’s propensity to run, do you think he might chip in some SBs too? (~7ish?). Looking at him as a sneaky cheaper clone to Khris Davis…

    2. Off topic, but testing of your prospect love: I’m in a keep 7 12 teamer weekly roto league (7 man bench) where I’m (hopefully) built for a title run with my keeper set. Specifically, I’ve got Rizzo ($33), Betts ($28), Darvish ($18), then three Coors studs all at $10 – Story, Desmond, and Dahl. My last keeper is Moncada ($3).

    I’m all in on Moncada like you . . . but given my other keepers and league format, would you trade Moncada for any of the following contribute-now guys?

    $10 odor, $10 JD Martinez, or $18 freeman?

      @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: Thanks! Great Khris Davis comp. Think that is accurate. And I’ll let Ralph answer that last question. Don’t want to be responsible for having to make that decision :)

        @Halp: Hahaha! Probably can’t go wrong, but I’d hold I think. He’s so cheap!

      • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:

        @Halp: ha! Much appreciated. As I think Grey pointed out, people are much higher on Margot than Renfoe, but Renfoe is hitting cleanup and could bonk 30 with 5-7 sb.

        Like your site btw!

      @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: I’m not sure how much Renfroe runs. He could be a Davis clone very much so.

      I’d hold onto Moncada, you have good balance to win now and in the future

        @Ralph Lifshitz: thanks, Ralph. Good point. And for all we know Yoan could be up in June or earlier if he starts strong.

    Forgot my other question for ya!

    What line do you expect from Bregman for 2017 and what would you expect from him in prime years? Got a $15 Bergman for my $18 Yu offer in hand, but he feels a bit pricey here. Thanks!

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:

      @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: Nope two question maximum.

      That does feel pricey. I think I’d hold, I think Bregman can be a .280/25/85/7 player in his prime.

        @Ralph Lifshitz: haha thanks!
