  1. I PMed you my email. Would be interested in joining.
  2. I'm down, who is the list so far? 1. jfazz23 2. turner46 3. TheBoatmen 4. SwayzeExpress 5. TrueShoe
  3. Maybe Puig, Kemp, Wood, and Farmer will help them get back on track.
  4. Whitley, Josh James, and McCullers would basically be the worst case scenario top 3 for Houston and that honestly wouldn't be all that bad. But yeah not likely a World Series winning pitching staff. As you stated Whitley can't be counted on for a bunch of post season innings at this point in his career. He's already gotten injured. But even so they have some time to make some moves. Also I read somewhere Verlander has an option for 22 mil in 2020 if he reaches certain incentives over the life of his contract. So The Stros may still have Veralnder in 2020. Honestly Bauer makes a ton of sense for Houston to trade for. He's still fairly young and would fit in well with Houston's "time frame". He's a steal at 6.5 million for this year.
  5. Yeah for me it's Sutton all the way here. Sure Jeffery will likely outscore him by 1 point most weeks. But if Sutton's potential is tapped into more and I see the reference to DT being traded he could be an absolute beast. Sutton was a corner back his freshman year in college and converted to WR.
  6. What about the concern with The Rams game becoming The Todd Gurely show? The Rams are favored to win the game by 10 points and that spread may go higher. Gurely had the least amount of touches going into the bye week (his lowest scoring out put in the highest scoring game too lol) I think he's going to get a ton of work and could really water down the pass game especially when Detroit can't keep up. I think the Winston Fitzmagic thing is over. At this point you have to just stick with Winston he's the future of your franchise you didn't draft him 1.1 to start a journeyman QB over him. I think there's plenty of concern to start Winston over Goff here... I'm leaning Winston but both should do well. I just think Gurley can hurt Goff if The Rams just decide to run the piss out of him fresh off a bye in a game they should blow out.
  7. I never said there weren't warts and risks to him. But if he does carry over that type of production to Advanced A and/or AA next year he would then find himself probably in the top 100.
  8. Keep Sale. I'd want a better pitcher (more consistent and younger) than Ray to trade Sale.
  9. Interesting trade offer... Rosario certainly has some upside but will he ever be better than Springer? How much do 2nd round picks go for in your league? I like Vizcaino a lot but I think I'd still try to get more for Springer.
  10. The deeper the minor league system the less importance proximity becomes. Also Ben Zobrist is another example 24 in A ball (way better K%).
  11. 22 isn't too old for A ball in generally this is especially so when it's your first full season in the minors. Also note that he was quickly promoted to Advanced A last season before injuries (oblique twice I believe?). He was basically unhittable in A ball.
  12. Roberto Ramos could end up being a big time sleeper too. I too would rather have him than Golden. Higher in the minors, still bad but better K%, and even more power. For what it's worth both Golden and Ramos are owned in my 400 prospect league (I own neither of them).
  13. And even if you end up losing this trade 4-5 years down the road who cares you'll have dominated the next 3 seasons and have had time to turn the roster.
