Kershaw is the highest paid. Plus his friends look like they'd wear Trump ties.

Re: ZiPS v Steamer on De Leon. ZiPS likes De Leon a little more in K/9 and BB/9 more than Steamer. But Steamer projects De Leon to have a HR/9 rate slightly *lower* than the MLB average, while ZiPS projects it to be a bit above average. Considering one of the biggest knocks on De Leon is "he gives up too many HR" I think it's fare to take ZiPS in this case.

At the risk of bringing your livelihood to a screeching halt, I must ask you - is there any specific area that you think ZiPS has trouble correctly quantifying? Put another way - what is ZiPS weakest area?

I think he's about where he'll be, which is fine.

I know you're not a fantasy guy, but do you have an opinion on paying a guy like Posey? His overall numbers (and counting stats) are well above output for a catcher, and C has positional scarcity. But then 11 of the other 12 options are much closer to each other, so it could be argued that the incrementality is not that much.
Dan Szymborski
3:01
I think he's enough that I aggressively go after Posey if he's in the right slot and precisely nobody else.

Kopech was only 52 innings at High A this year. Manning could get like 90 innings at A/high A. Just a hypothetical

Why do people think Kershaw is so much better than Bumgarner? Honestly I there is a honest argument to be had as to who is the better pitcher.
Dan Szymborski

There isn't.
