The Future Of The Philadelphia Phillies Could Be Bright

The Phillies have not had a winning season since 2011 after putting forth a decade straight of them.  A promising second half to the year - coupled with full seasons by Aaron Nola and Maikel Franco could have them inch closer back to achieving that mark in the next few years.

The Philadelphia Phillies haven’t had a winning season since 2011. While it has been a tough stretch of seasons for the team and their fans, they are in the midst of a rebuild that could bring the organization great success in the near future.

I would expect the Phillies to start competing around 2018-2019 seasons. In this article, I will highlight some of the Phillies prospects and players that will be instrumental to the success of the Phillies.

These players will include: Maikel FrancoAaron NolaVincent VelazquezJ.P. CrawfordMark AppelJake Thompson, and Nick Williams.

Could this be the year that the Chicago Cubs break their curse of not winning a World Series title since 1908?

Many baseball fans and critics believe they have the best shot out of all teams in Major League Baseball.

The Chicago Cubs organization has done an amazing job at developing homegrown talent over the past 4 to 5 years and this young talent is starting to make a massive impact in the big leagues.

Not only are the Cubs producing homegrown talent, but they made a huge splash in the free agency market this Spring.

This team has so much talent that there are multiple very talented players who currently don’t have a spot in the lineup.

In this article I will highlight each position and share the key organizational depth that could possibly bring home a World Series title in 2016.

Each position will list players who are projected to start and prospects that could have an impact within the next 2-4 years.

Players with multi-positional eligibility will have this listed in their bio. Prospects will be listed at positions that they are projected to play when they arrive in the big leagues.

Please click the link below to see my analysis on Miguel Montero, Willson Contreras, Anthony Rizzo, Dan Vogelbach, Ben Zobrist, Javier Baez, Addison Russell, Gleyber Torres, Dexter Fowler, Jason Heyward, Kyle Schwarber, Jorge Soler, Ian Happ, Albert Almora, and more:

Welcome To The Baseball Hall Of Fame Corey Seager

MLB: Chicago White Sox at Los Angeles Dodgers

It’s time to hop on the Corey Seager Express, because before you know it, he will be giving his Hall of Fame speech.

While this is a complete joke, I do think he holds the skills and assets to have an incredible career.

While Seager is very far from a bid to the Hall of Fame, I’m not afraid to say that he has talent that is very comparable to what a Hall of Famer possesses.

Bryce Harper Will Look Good In Yankee Pinstripes For 2019

Bryce Harper is widely considered as one of best, if not the best, players in Major League Baseball. At only 23 years old, Harper is already being compared to baseball legends such as Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth, and many others.

Harper made his Major League Baseball debut at the age of 19 in 2012, because of that, his team control will expire at a much younger age than the average player. He will be a free agent in 2019 at the age of 26.

After his incredible 2015 campaign at the age of 22, people think he will only improve as he gets older. Nobody has ever had expectations quite like Harper has, so there is no way to predict how much money he will make if he meets and exceeds these expectations.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Harper sign a contract worth $400-500 million dollars in 2019, which will break almost every monetary record in baseball history.

New Fantasy Baseball Statistic And Offensive Rankings

I have been working extremely hard on developing a new fantasy baseball statistic that will help give value to players in dynasty leagues. For those that don’t know what a dynasty league is, here is my definition: Dynasty leagues keep the same roster every year following the initial draft.

These leagues place significantly more value on younger players as they will be on your team for a longer period of time. 

The name of this new strategy for evaluating players is “win-now dynasty.” The goal of this statistic is to value players in a dynasty league on a win now basis, but to take into account long-term, future success as well.

When reading the factors below that helped me create this statistic, please keep in mind that it is better to have a lower total score for each player. See the method behind this new statistics and ranking below:

I’ve had the opportunity to go to Spring Training almost every year for the last 10 years, so I’d love to share some suggestions to those who want to attend in 2016. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!

Most of my experiences have happened in Kissimmee, Florida, which is the home of the Houston Astros Spring Training. I will try to keep my suggestions on a broad basis to help fans who want to visit many different Spring Training locations. I have never been to Arizona for Spring Training, but I hope to go in the next 2 years.

Keep in mind if you are traveling to Arizona, these suggestions could vary a little bit based on your location. Please see suggestions below:

Make It Or Break It Year For The New York Yankees

The Yankees acquisition of Aroldis Chapman is great notion that the club will continue to make plans to acquire more players on the last year of their team control.

The Yankees acquisition of Aroldis Chapman is great notion that the club will continue to make plans to acquire more players on the last year of their team control.

The Yankees have yet to sign one big-league player this offseason. This is very unlike the New York Yankees, who are known as big spenders every offseason.

While they haven’t signed anyone, they have traded for Starlin Castro and Aroldis Chapman. Both of these additions will be very influential to the Yankees success in 2016, but many people are still wondering what is going on during this odd offseason.

I believe the Yankees realize they are getting older and they are trying to rely on their minor league developmental process.

They should start to see some of their young studs make the move to the show soon, so there is no need to delay that process by overspending on a free agent this offseason.

The New York Yankees finished the 2015 season with a 87-75 record. This earned them a wildcard playoff spot, but they lost to the Houston Astros in the first round

. While the Yankees have plenty of talent on their roster, there is no denying that the average age of their lineup is a problem for the future.

They had the 6th highest average age out of all Major League Baseball teams in 2015 at 29.6 years old.

This doesn’t seem significantly high, but their core group of talent is much older than the average. See below for the age of each player, games played in 2015, and when they are a free agent:
