Waterloo’s Thoughts

While catcher is as bad as it’s ever been, there are 12 startable catchers in most leagues. I still don’t envy those mad men and women who play in two-catcher leagues … The newest addition to the catcher rankings is John Hicks. He should perform admirably with Miguel Cabrera out for the year … It looks like Paul Goldschmidt has figured the humidor out. Kudos to you if you bought low or held him through his struggles … Speaking of finding their way, Rhys Hoskins seems to have figured things out since coming off the disabled list. He’s looking to make up for lost time with a big second half … There’s officially a new No. 1 player at second base, and his name just happens to be Jose, too … Max Muncy is this year’s Chris Taylor. Believe it, folks … I’ve often called Eugenio Suarez the poor man’s Nicholas Castellanos. It’s now the other way around. Suarez is a bonafide stud at the position … I know he went on a tear late in the year last year, but I just can’t get behind Josh Donaldson. I’ll let him prove me wrong … Gleyber Torres has been fun to watch, but all he’s doing is hitting home runs. Plus, he’s hitting in the bottom of the Yankees order, which makes it home run or bust for him … Eduardo Escobar has been quietly good for the past calendar year. He’s moving into must-own in non-middle infield leagues … Over the long haul, I’ll still take Ronald Acuna over Juan Soto, but for this year, it’s a coin-flip. You have to love how polished Soto is against left-handers and how he hits his homers to the opposite field … Is there a more underrated Fantasy asset than Eddie Rosario? If you didn’t buy in after last year, you have no reason not to now … For the record, Fantasy Pros rankings system won’t allow Ross Stripling to be ranked as a starting pitcher. If they did, he’d be my No. 30 starter going forward … Miles Mikolas and Jack Flaherty are doing what we hoped Luke Weaver would have done this year. Don’t mess this up, Matheny … I moved Kyle Gibson up to No. 45. If past history is any indication, this is all about to blow up in our faces … Blake Treinen has been lights out and, in turn, has been the biggest riser among relievers … It’s a season later than we had hoped, but it’s nice to see Edwin Diaz take that elite step forward.
