Mentioned Betts at 1.7, which I agree is a good pick. Main concern I have is the pop ups (led MLB in them in 2017). While he ran a little bad on line drive BABIP (small sample for just one season) .. I think the AVG/BABIP decline was mostly the 35 pop up automatic outs.

I’m personally penciling down .280-ish as opposed to Steamers .300 until I see some improvement there
