  1. Rotoworld Blurb Mistake/Argument Thread

    Wade Davis - R - Rockies Wade Davis tossed a perfect ninth inning to notch the save Tuesday in St. Louis. It was as easy as saves get, as Davis was protecting a three-run lead and needed just six pitches -- throwing them all for strikes -- to dispose of the Cardinals. Davis has bounced back nicely from a blowup outing a week ago versus the Rockies, as he's allowed just one baserunner and no runs over his last four appearances. I know he torpedoed his teams chances, but Davis plays FOR The Rockies... Jul 31 - 11:39 PM

    I'm starting. NL Only, so my bars a tad lower, but STL's been a good start for SP lately....
  3. Keeper League Trade, WHIR

    Doesn't look like this is your sig team, so it's tough to tell how much losing the offense would hurt you, but needing the Closer and given I don't think you keep Brantley anyway (I'd be looking at Nola or DeGrom depending on ROS, Mikolas and Peraza right now I think), I think I'd do it. Depending on the offseason, Viz at $11 could be a decent keeper choice too.
  4. 12 Team 5x5 NL Only, currently in 2nd overall. 4th in BA, 4th in HR, 1st in R, 5th in RBI and 3rd in SB for Hitting Cats, 6th in ERA, 5th in K, 5th in SV, 3rd in W and 5th in WHIP for Pitching. Traded Tatis (MiLB $15), Jay $6 and Melancon $32 (Salary issue) for Thor $10 (Extendable for $5 per yr), Aguilar $1 and Duvall $1 (unkeepable) and his 3rd. Traded Nimmo for $2 (keepable) and my 1st (minors) pick for DeGrom $16 (unkeepable) and his 3rd. Is it enough to push me over the top? Full team in sig...

    "Hold my beer" - Mets Managment RE: Syndergaard, Conforto, Harvey, Gooden, Strawberry, Kazmir, Kent, Ryan, Wilson, Pulsipher, Isringhausen ect...
  6. Daniel Descalso 2018 Outlook

    He's older (31) and generally has been a career 4th Infielder. his .882 F% in the OF last year and .833 this year are pretty bad, he's ok at 2nd (.960) and 3rd (.982) though but I think it's really more the former. He's not viewed as a "long term" part of the team's plans and they're trying to maximize AB & experience for their younger guys in hopes that they can get better and carry the team in the future.
  7. Deal has been offered to me, my Jr for his Thor. NL Only contract dynasty. Thor's contract can be extended from his current $10 salary at $5 per year. Tatis Jr is in the Minors, so his contract has not yet started.... If Thor were to get traded though, I'd be Screwed with a capital S

    Also, the AZ manager has made an effort to find him a lot of opportunities. He was useful in NL Only last year as well. He's eligible at every position except Catcher in my league. I'm very pleased having kept him.
  9. Drop Clippard for Nimmo?

    Nimmo should have a good amount of playing time until Yo returns at least. BUT he's not really much of a counting stats guy, not a ton of power and doesn't steal too much either. At leadoff he gets a decent amount of R but the Mets as a whole kinda suck, so opportunities there are limited. I'd think he's worth a short term add even in mixed leagues, but I'd keep my eye open for a longer term solution.
  10. Short answer. Yes.
  11. Agreed, I would get Archer. Worst case, Hicks spends a year or two in a Fireman type role like Hader has. As you said, Russell is basically a throwaway, Archer is much better than Peralta (both now and in the short term future IMO) and Verdugo / Hicks are both upside plays at this point, but only one of them is currently gathering MLB stats.
  12. 5/23 - GAME DAY THREAD

    I'm streaming Brock in NL only today.
  13. I can sit on him as long as I like, while rebuilding last year I held Belli and Rosario down all year, but it's hard to fight the hype The current plan was to wait at least through the weekend and see how the first week went. The worry is what if they were to send him down just because Eaton & Robles got healthy and he was "only" hitting the low side of those projections out there (a few HR, .270) so they bring up Robles instead because he's got seniority or some****. But at the same time, if he's homering on the daily, those are lost stats for the year. I would love to have Nats mgmt commit publicly to 300AB this year, but that's not terribly likely.
  14. 12 team NL Only Contract Dynasty, start 2C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, MI, CI, 5OF, U, 9P. Standard 5x5 I'm currently leading the pack, though I could use some help in a few categories where Juan would be valuable,.. In our league you can keep MiLB guys for free an unlimited amount of time, but newly added players have a 2 year clock (current and next) before they require extensions and significant salary bumps. If I was sure Soto'd be up for the remainder of the year barring injury, I'd be happy to activate him and start his clock now, but I'm concerned he could go back down after 150AB or so, which would lead to a wasted year of his extreme cheapness.
