Olney expects retribution

Given the "unwritten rules of baseball," I wonder which team will brushback Altuve and Bregman during Spring Training ... maybe Maeda. Dodgers will be sunning in Arizona so won't have a direct chance in ST.

Stands to reason by listening for the garbage can banging, he'd know when a fastball was coming and thus know when not to run!

The baffling part about Altuve in  that 2017 season is his road OPS was 1.081 as opposed to .834 at home; but he had 6 more SB at home with the 6 CS split evenly.

I'm discounting the big Astros' hitters (especially Altuve, for the SB issue pointed out by Eugene) a few dollars each. Maybe 10% of normal value. I don't think they're going to get suspended - and I'm sure that would be announced well before I draft - but I think their performance is going to suffer a bit. And I'm not paying full price to find out. 


Guys like Springer, Altuve and Bregman are still very highly-skilled players, but why else would you go to the lengths they supposedly did unless you thought it was going to help your performance? If it wasn't helping, they probably would have stopped after a couple of weeks.

You are right about that EF, except the drop happened immediately after the scandal broke, i.e. cause and effect. I am insane and have about a dozen NFBC drafts I've done so this was noticeable. Altuve seems to have been affected more than Bregman or Springer, thus far anyway. Bregman is going in the mid teens after being top ten early on and Springer has gone in the 40s, about 10 slots lower than he started. Maybe all of us NFBC folks are a few French fries short of a happy meal but I'd say a trend is developing.

Altuve was bound to fall regardless.  His SB total has slipped considerably the past two years after dropping from his peak prior to that.  If he's a 10 SB player, he's going to max out at $30 rather than low-mid $40s as 35+ SB player.

BUY I sez

I was reading somewhere, maybe Twitter, that Bregman dropped from the First Round to #26 in a recent NFBC draft. Unless there are player suspensions forthcoming, and Manfred doesn't seem all that keen in heading in that direction and battling with the PA, would this not be the same initial reaction we saw with both Osuna and Chapman? Last I looked, they were going off-the-board as the third and fourth closer. If the Astro players continue to fall, it creates a buy-low opportunity. Are we passing or taking advantage of this short-term opportunity?

Most Astros and Altuve in particular have dropped precipitously in early draft ADP. Altuve started in the low 30s and has dropped down to a mid-40 ADP since the photo of him clutching his jersey was published.
