    Love the Rougned Odor desparity. Either he is going to break out this year (four of you) or he’s going to have a year to continue sorting things out (two of you). I applaud the two who have the guts to say he isn’t ready yet, as not everyone blows up that young.

      HUGE split on Odor, which surprised me. With a full complement of at-bats along with health, I think he can get to 20/10 with average. If you felt he was young and the league may adjust to him, I can see 10-15, but too much upside to have in the 20s (for me).

    I tend to go towards what has been done versus what may be. I think it was Paul Bear Bryant who said, “potential means you ain’t done nothing yet.” So, I differ from my colleagues on a lot of young players. I acknowledge the potential, but I want to see it first.

    Altuve ranked 3rd, (Scott). I’m starting to think your that guy that finishes last every year in your league.

    I play in mostly six category leagues. You have to be able to steal first in those leagues. Altuve hits for average but never saw a pitch he didn’t like. I choose not to chase single categories. I try to look at the whole player. Thank you for reading and commenting.

      Yeah, but Altuve produced better in all six categories than Carpenter and Cano. Just picking your brain. Intriguing.

    I tend to put more weight in walks than the other folks. If you notice, he also lags in runs and RBI.
