2019 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper and Busts - Second Base
My name is Steve. If you don't like me you must leave. You should move to Tel Aviv. If you're an asshole about it, your penis I will cleave. The end.
Wilmer Flores, Arizona Diamondbacks
Flores has had double digit home runs in four straight seasons, despite only having 400 at-bats once in his career. Flores has always hit left handed pitchers in his career except for last season. Flores is set to be the D’Backs every day second baseman this year, and I think he could easily hit 20 home runs. If he can hit lefties in 2019 he could hit 20 homers and also hit .280. Flores is an awesome late round option in any type of league. He is someone that I like in my drafts this season.
Ryan McMahon, Colorado Rockies
Scooter Gennett, Cincinnati Reds
I just can’t trust an adult named Scooter. He does have 50 home runs and over 180 RBIs over the past two seasons combined, but I am still just waiting for the bottom to drop out on Gennett. The previous four years in Milwaukee he had 35 home runs combined, so excuse me that I don’t believe the past two years for Scooter. He doesn’t walk very much and I just don’t buy the power. Do I have a great, analytical reason? I do not. This is a gut call, and I’ve never bought this surge in production the past two seasons.
