BLACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Friday, 11/27, Noon EST, The MTM Black Friday Fast DC! SOLD OUT!

Post by Baseball Furies » Fri Nov 20, 2020 12:55 am

So what has become yet an another MTM NFBC annual tradition, The Black Friday Fast DC returns for another installment beginning the day after Thanksgiving at 12:00 p.m. EST. Another 750 picks over about two days of shit-talking, ball-busting, and of course fantasy baseball brilliance while early season baseball drafting with some of the best of the best in the industry, headlined by me of course! :mrgreen: So who's ready to donate to the cause? I know this one is up early and it will fill fast, and also feel like an eternity before it gets rolling a week from today, but it will be well worth the wait! The sign-up list is below, and most of you all know the drill by now. Hit me up and let's get ready to work off the tryptophan malaise as we punch another one into the books for the 2021 MLB Season. 8-)

I think there must be some mistake. Somehow the founder/creator of this league was saddled with the 13th pick. Nothing like getting your 13th choice. :roll: I demand a re-randomization of this league! :P

Have fun guys. MTM drafts are always the best. No sleeping, you gotta be ready or the Sheriff will track you down. Maybe Dan K can post after the first round. My under/over on pitchers going in the 1st round is 5.5. What a change from years past. Good luck all.

Thanks Dan. My under over ( 5.5) on pitchers going in the 1st round was off. Only 4 went. But still, the fantasy game has changed as we routinely see 3-6 pitchers go first round.

You're right that our game has changed. Pitching is being pushed.
I believe it is almost to the point that it is a detriment to some teams.
We project the Hell out of pitchers.
We believe THIS will be the year that the Dodgers let Walker Buehler put on his Big Boy pants and let him pitch a lot of innings.
Even though they have a history of inhibiting (Ryu, Maeda), what they consider tender arms.
So occasionally, we see Buehler in the first round.
Should he be there?
The talent says yes.
The history says no.
We also have a pitcher who is 28 years old next year. He has thrown in five Big League seasons.
This Starter has thrown more than 70 innings just once.
Once.
And has also has struck out 100 hitters once in his career.
Once.
Not 200,... 100.
Yet, he is selected in the third round.
We pocket injury history and project the talent.
Not to mention (although I am) that Glasnow, like Buehler, pitches for a team that pulls Starters (right Mr. Snell?) for no apparent reason.
BUT, Tyler Glasnow has a 10.9 career K/9 percentage.
That percentage, along with an extraordinary 14.3 K/9 percentage from last year, keeps him high in drafts.
Tyler Glasnow has been the Byron Buxton of pitchers.
For some reason, we forgive Pitchers more than hitters.
After all, it wasn't till this year that James Paxton fell out of the top 10 rounds of drafting.
Like Glasnow, he could strike out batters well.
But also like Glasnow, Paxton was better at another skill..... Injury.

Pitchers like Buehler, Glasnow, and others are like trailers to movies. They entice. They leave you wanting more.
Sometimes, the 'regular' baseball folks 'get it' over us fantasy brethren.
Most fantasy enthusiasts project Glasnow to have over 200 strike outs this year.
That...even though he has never had even 150 in his career.
Baseball Reference projects Glasnow to throw 83 innings and have 104 K's.
They see the history. We project the talent.

I'm not berating Glasnow drafters or projectors. This could be THE year. We don't know.
In eight seasons, Paxton had one year of 200 K's and maxed out at 160 innings.
So, it could happen.
I just don't like the odds.
On my tombstone-
Wait! I never had the perfect draft!
