    Even with a 6-man rotation, isn't Ryu due back soon? He was pitching well before the injury....or does that 6 man rotation accommodate Ryu?
  2. Tough one to consider..... (WHIR)

    You're right. I made this counter offer: James Paxton - $15 Walker Buehler - $1 Odobel Herrera - $6 (can only keep one more year) Namar Mazara - $8 for Luis Severino - $1 Didi Gregorius - $6 Cody Bellinger - $1 We'll see what he counters with.
  3. In one of my leagues I'm toast...it just ain't gonna happen, so I'm setting up for next year. It's an auction keeper league so paying attention to player values in trades is important. I picked up Walker Buehler and a couple other pieces in a trade for Max Scherzer. Now people want Walker who is a $1 player for me. the best I've been offered is Didi Gregorius for him...a $5 player (very cheap). Thoughts? I already have Nola and Paxton who I'm keeping next year far below market value, and certainly need help with batting categories.

    Rewarding us and his team with a big fat 0'fer....

    Detroit is below (AL) average on the road, and below (AL) average against right handers....so yes, I personally will be rolling him out.
  7. James Paxton 2018 Outlook

    Yea...Dylan Bundy just jobbed the Red Sox. I'm OK with starting Paxton.

    Counting stats this past week (non-OBP league)...just sick: 16-25, 0.640 BA, 4 HR, 11 RBI, 10 R, 3 BB

    Wow...they just keep throwing him 85mph pitches huh? When will the league ever learn, just throw him heat...he can't hit it anymore!

    That's fine you feel that way, I completely disagree. Put 2007 money in perspective. The contracts that year were the bell-curve-killing AROD 10-4-$275Mil and after that the average deals size/money was I believe in the $10Mil per year range (Average not all). Torii H got 5-4-$90M...Mariano got 3-4-$45Mil, etc. My opinion is and will always be dropping $26Mil on a 44 y.o. pitcher at the end of his career was a colossal waste of money, and equates to the dead years money they paid the likes of CC at end of his last contract...which is less than what Clemons got paid, and $26Mil 10 years ago is more like $36Mil today. You disagree...I get it...I think you're as wrong as you think I am however.

    There were a few deals I didn't mention...Ellsbury belongs. Putting the amount of money in perspective with the time frame of the contract...Carl Pavano's contract was a disaster (4 for $42Mil I think) BUT he was hit HARD by injuries, Kei Igawa ($26Mil fee plus $20Mil contract...bidding war with Red Sox), and how about $32Mil for 32 yo Jose Conteras as the Yankees were hoping for another El Duque. Remember, I'm just talking Yankees...there are other teams with worse contracts...Vernon Wells/Jays, Werth and the Nats, Fielder and the Rangers... BUT...Chris Davis belongs in the conversation for sure.

    I don't...at all. It was a horrible deal.
  13. Chris Davis 2018 Outlook

    As a Yankees Fan, I can put up some competition for bad contracts: 1. Clemens 1 yr $28Mil deal (6-6, 4.2+ ERA, only started something like 16 games) 2. Mark Texiera 8 yr $180Mil deal. Had some moments...but not $180Mil worth. Last 4 years he was an anchor on the roster and salary cap. 3. AJ Burnett 5 yr $85mil deal (around $85Mil) - Losing record and 5 ERA 4. AROD - nuf said. (10y $275Mil) 5. CC Sabathia's deal...$25Mil a year??? Oof. 5.

    Adam Dunn without the Home Runs.

    He has bad luck with bases for sure...Torn ACL/Meniscus/High Ankle sprain last year ending his season running hard to first base and then the cartilage damage this year after sliding awkwardly into a base. Let's hope those were flukes...exceptions versus the norm.
