  1. LeBron James 2018-19 Season Thread

    I think the OP second paragraph was more about the Spurs losing out in maximizing trade value for Kawhi. Prior to the Lakers signing Lebron, the Spurs could have thought that the Lakers NEEDED to trade for Kawhi in order to have James sign on with the Lakers. Now, obtaining Kawhi may still be a strong desire for LA, but they don't NEED him anymore to sign Lebron...obviously. In that sense, San Antonio could have lost some of their leverage, as it seemed like the need to acquire Kawhi was tied to signing Lebron. That's how I interpreted that OP anyways.
  2. 2018 MLB Draft Prospects

    I think Tampa had a great first day in the draft picking up Liberatore and McClanahan...They desparately had to restock the cupboard with pitching after all the TJ injuries this year to their top pitching prospects.
  3. Trade ohtani for bogaerts?

    keep Ohtani
  4. Olson, Drury for Schwarber, Calhoun

    Schwarber/Calhoun....I'd take that immediately in dynasty
  5. Deep Dynasty League Trade Question

    If you're 10/15 in the AL and 19/30 overall, that tells me that you're not that close to contending. Dealing Moncada for two veterans, one of which is in significant decline in Cargo would be catastrophic to your long term outlook. Especially given that Moncada is so cheap. If I were you, I'd be committing towards rebuilding to the future and move your older veterans like Braun and Cano (sucks he's injured/suspended now). The team in my sig is a 20 team league...I completely blew up my squad maybe 5 years ago, and acquired tons of minor league talent and draft picks. The biggest mistake I see owners make is not fully committing to either winning now or rebuilding. Guys who try to toe that line tend to stay middle of the road, and never really ever improve. You should also make a point to scope out the MILB forum on rotoworld....lots of sleeper prospects discussed in some of the deep sleeper threads. It's helped me nab guys way before they end up being highly ranked on the big publication sites.
  6. Nate Pearson - SP TOR

    Nice....I hear he's Jonesing for sun flower seeds and the opportunity to adjust his jock strap...only 4 more weeks Nate....hang in there.
  7. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Today yes....but overall, he is still getting out more than half the time
  8. Who won the deal? Tanaka & Godley for Arrieta

    As a Tanaka owner, I'd say whoever got Arrieta is the winner. Somehow I have not rage dropped Tanaka or sold him for scraps. He is so frustrating to own.
  9. I'd keep Teo at the moment. I'd also be hesitant to draw any conclusions from a rookie's one and only start.
  10. Josh Hader 2018 Outlook

    Yeah, he was technically a starter in the minors. But, he was pitching for the Astros. They have a weird tendency of limiting innings of their pitching prospects and would have him pitch 4 innings or so, before turning it over to another potential "starter". I remember watching the box scores and thinking how would his stats translate to going thru the order a 3rd time, where there's often some regression. For this reason, I don't think he was ever fully developed as a starter in terms of stamina. If you look at his innings pitched in the minors, most years hovered around 100, and when you look at the number of starts, he should have gone more innings.
  11. Bell for Paxton dynasty league trade

    I own both Bell and Paxton in one of my dynasty leagues. I'd move Bell for Paxton, but understand that you're not getting a full workload in Paxton (he's bound to get shut down for like a month at some point)...but, what you do get will be nice. in a 10 team league, I have to imagine you'd struggle against some other squads and their pitching with your current staff.
  12. how good/bad is this team?

    How many teams are in the league? Is it points or categories...if categories, what are they (standard 5x5)? Hard to assess the team without more info.
  13. Dynasty Rookie Draft.

    I'd go Ohtani, Bichette, Soto, Florial, Kingery
  14. Drew Waters - OF ATL

    He struck out in 40% of his at bats in the Appy
  15. ESPN player acquisitions during a BYE

    I am in ESPN leagues. You are able to pick up players during your bye week. The week acts just like any other week of the season. Then acquisition limits are reset for your next matchup.
