  1. He's been on a tear, 2 more hits tonight. Not sure what kind of counting stats he'll net, but should be a bunch of runs, hits, with a fantastic average, hitting 2nd or 3rd for Houston.
  2. His Yahoo note quoted Hill saying he's %100 and ready for whatever. Glad to hear some good news. See what happens when he actually get a back though.
  3. Looking stud after 1 inning. Hitting 97-98 seemingly at ease with good control. Dropped a nasty changeup at 88 mph, later a very nice curve ball to Benintendi. Could be paydirt for those who drafted in late rounds or like me scooped from agents.
  4. He's had cold spells often in his career from what I remember. Still should end up 1 of the most productive catchers for fantasy, especially having 1B too. He was dropped in my league, hoping my 4 waiver goes through tonight.
  5. Yeah definitely, unfortunately with injuries he's a guy I'll need to heavily rely on. Hope it's just April causing the decrease velo and nothing else.
  6. How dare you sir!!
  7. I think he'll be mid 3 ERA, be very surprised to see him hovering around 4. Would be nice to hear as it warms up his velocity increasing though, I know he had some tough starts last year when his velo dropped a bit.
  8. He struggled mightily last few seasons in the NL, anyone think he'll have any issues or be stud like last year just being in that COL lineup?
  9. Don't think I'll ever really trust Tanaka to stay healthy, I'd prefer Grienke. Think he may pitch better at home after spending a season there, he hasn't been bad thus far. Also looks like the ARI lineup is the healthiest it's been in some time, he should be in line for a lot of wins. I like Taillon as well, pretty solid but probably won't rack up many Ks, and think the lousy offense will cost him quite a few wins.
  10. Friend offered me Ian Desmond for Taillon and Wade Davis, thoughts ? I'm already deep at OF with LF Brantley CF Blackmon RF Betts and for OF 1 of Duvall, Beltran, Tomas. Desmond put up just about equal numbers to Blackmon last year and could have a big year in COL with that lineup. Although I am down 3 SPs, Taillon is a guy I've been high on and could have to count on with Bum/Hill/Sanchez DL'd, also Wade Davis is looking like he'll be a top closer. Good closers are somewhat important as the pitching cats we try to win are H ER ERA BB, so closers who don't hurt you and rack up saves like Melancon/Davis have been really valuable. Other seasons I've had 1 good closer, and resulted to picking up flavor of the month fill-ins and racking up blown saves, so I wasn't planning on trading one of them. Not much for SP/Closers in FAs, best SPs would be like Lynn, Hellickson, Happ, Hammel, Cobb, Urias, Ryu, Wheeler, McCarthy, Santiago, Senzatela, VV. Best Closers Kintzler, Reed, Bedrosian DL, Jim Johnson, Kelley, about it. These are our teams, MY team C Contreras 1b Miggy 2b DJ 3b J.Turner SS Machado IF Suarez LF Brantley CF Blackmon RF Betts OF Duvall BN Tomas, Beltran, Diaz, Healy SP Duffy, Taillon, Bundy, Severino, J.Ross, Maeda DL Hill Bumgarner Sanchez RP Melancon, Wade Davis His team C Molina 1b Rizzo 2b Altuve 3b Nunez SS Seager IF Gallo LF J.Ramirez CF Hanniger RF Pence OF Tre BN Bergman, Moncada, Ballinger, Schoop DL Desmond SP Kluber, Hamels, Lackey, Estrada, Goo DL Guerra Richards RP Allen, Osuna
  11. Anyone ?
  12. Thought about trying to buy lower on Hendricks as he's not pitching too good right now. Trying to figure out who on my team is worth making an offer. Who would you guys offer for Hendricks ? MY team C Contreras 1b Miggy 2b DJ 3b J.Turner SS Machado IF Suarez LF Brantley CF Blackmon RF Betts OF Duvall BN Tomas, Beltran, Diaz, Healy SP Duffy, Taillon, Bundy, Severino, J.Ross, Maeda DL Hill Bumgarner Sanchez
  13. Friend is bombarding me with trade offers. He has Trea, Seager, Altuve I'm interested in, then of lesser interest Hamels, Lackey, Estrada. He likes Betts and Blackmon but not willing to give up what Betts is worth, so seeing what might make sense for Blackmon. Our teams are below. What would be reasonable to ask for Blackmon? What offers would you try for 1 of Trea or C.Seager ? He's coming off 2 great years, looks like he'll pas his HR totals, probably hit even more HRs 3rd year in a row, already has like 6. I think the COL lineup is better this year than it has been last couple, he could have a monster year. I don't think trading him straight for Turners half season makes sense. So trying to see what package you guys would look for. Also like Seager, but trying to find some offers to make for one or the other.

  14. I like them roughly the same, but mean towards Anderson. Think he'll get more run support and quality starts, won't face COL/ARI as often either.
  15. I meant Gurriel not Yuriel btw sorry for any confusion.
