For both teams (1 and 2)

Zach wheeler and Pineda are available.. im thinking about jumping and trying to get one or both before the rest of my league does.. can you all help me decide who to get (or both) and who to drop??

TEAM 1 (saves league/ 5x5 league)- Droppables=

valverde ( I have holland, grilli, henderson also closing, but do like having 4), beachey, garza (truthfully I dont think I could get any in this league)

or bj upton, morneau (would activate stanton,  put beachy on DL, stanton into UTL spot to just hold there for a bit


TEAM 2 (points league)- droppables=

perez, holland, bell, valverde, Henderson
(could potentially drop a closer?)

or brandon crawford- same thing would have to activate stanton- put into UTL spot to hold, would have to grab pineda and put him on DL, or leave him and get wheeler and just have an empty UTL for a bit


Ill help you if you help me I always respond quickly unless im away from my computer in which case I will be checking periodically and will answer you when I get back on

Thanks alot!

If you're asking for guys who could be called up soon and have an impact then I think any of Wheeler, Yelich, Cole, Franklin, Rendon etc could do pretty well for you. Then there's also Yasel Puig and Oscar Taveras should either the Dodgers or Cardinals lose an outfielder to injury. I'd be willing to drop Holland for any of their upsides.

Help me out:

I like Pineda more but history does repeat itself and Zack Wheeler and Matt Harvey could be the new Tom Seaver and Jerry Koosman.

Team 1:  I like having 4 closers so I would drop Morneau.  It looks like you are pretty set at 1B with Rizzo/Freeman.

Team2:  Bell

*made the move in team 2 dropped bell, added wheeler.. hope this kid is good..

* in team 1 I have sent out a couple trades 2 for 1 for free up a spot using holland as the bait for some teams with few closers.. if none get accepted Ill drop someone for wheeler ASAP

I like Wheeler more than Pineda. Pineda is coming off injury and pitches in the AL East.

Not sure who to drop out of those closers though.

Id drop BJ Upton over Morneau. Maybe look into Christian Yelich if he comes up in early June if you need some steals.

Sorry I cant help out more,  just dont want to give bad advice.

Team 1 I would drop Upton and pick up Pineda. By the time he gets back most of their offense will be close to returning so he might be a good source of wins. Wheeler has better potential though.

Team 2 I would drop Bell.

in team 2 I grabbed wheeler so I think Im good.. I have ALOT of MI in that league. I could potentially grab pineda too if I dropped either alcides or B crawford.. is a points league and crawford has been putting up consistant points all year to my surprise

in team 1 I have not made a move besides dropping BJ Upton for Josh willingham.. I think that should give me even more power in a 5x5 and will hopefully let me dominate HR and RBI

Team 1 like the move in dumping BJ upton for Willingham! I would consider dropping Holland for Wheeler or Pineda. Team 2 I would drop Alcides for Pineda. I don't think you need 3 SS. Thanks for the help!

1st off, good job in swooping up Wheeler. Second, you got rid of that anchor known as BJ Upton.

About your SS question, I'd take Alcides over Crawford.

Im debating on dropping one of them for Pineda it is a points league though with a SP game limit (12 starts per week)  I have alot of pitching but if I grab Pineda too I could potentially make a trade with my CC and Dickey for a Cain, Mad Bum, Moore.. something elite to go with the rest of my staff

Absolutely grab Pineda. I do think Upton will be better for the rest of the season than Morneau, though neither are "safe" by any means.

Escobar > Crawford anyday.

does the league being a points league make a difference on SS choice between alcides/b crawford?

I re-grabbed BJ for Morneau.. Gotta go with the upside and hope BJ starts heating up plus I need steals
