I bought low on him yesterday. Salary: 5:1 (in first year of contract) with the hopes that he'll be a $15 player next year.

Like the soothsayers warning to Julius Caesar.....Beware of the ides of March....in baseball...Beware of the Ides of a .400+ BABIP regression.

Nope - should have posted back then, but I was avoiding him in all my auctions once he went past $10 or 12 ($24 in CBS ... yikes!).  Now it feels $12 would have been overpaying big time.

How does a hitter's HR/FB collapse that much?  From the 25% range the last couple years, to below 4% this year.

Small sample size and all that - but that's the cautionary warning about a guy with a 30+% K rate - as long as he can keep whatever outstanding stat he has way above average (BABIP, HR/FB) he can keep a job.  If that stat collapses, even just for a small sample size, he may not get the opportunity to rebound.

Not I, Alex. I looked at that K rate and passed in all 13 Leagues. I think he needs to take the JD Martinez approach and rework that swing from the ground up.

If you didn't buy Hiura this year, admit it: you hoped to get him.

Manager Craig Counsell said Tuesday that Hiura may be in store for a longer stint at Triple-A Nashville than his previous demotion this season, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The 24-year-old was optioned to Nashville on Monday after going 2-for-29 with 16 strikeouts for Milwaukee following his three-week stint in the minors. Hiura may not rejoin the Brewers until after the All-Star break, and it wouldn't be surprising to see some tweaks to his swing mechanics given his 39.3 percent strikeout rate.

While looking for HRs for my DW team, this guy pop'd up ... I don't believe it (35 HRs) ... but the BP projection is for 28 HRs ... so ... something's there ...

It was a rough season to watch Brewers games.

Did someone who hit .212 really lead his team in hits?

I learn that Hiura did as I peruse the pages of Lindy's Baseball Preview. I wonder if that's ever happened before?
