    Check 1 off the list!

    My rest-of-offseason plan... 1- Sign Ottavino. 2- Trade Gray. 3- Sign 1-2 back end SP as rotation depth 4- Save money for Arenado in 2019 and Trout in 2020.
  3. How to Deal With Innings Limits / Streaming

    Two rules we use and both have worked well... 1- We have 10 P (4 Sp, 2 rp and 4 p). The RP must actually be pitching out of a major league bullpen. It cannot be a guy who was Sp,RP designated and now is in the rotation. 2- Any SP picked up must remain on your team for 3 starts. Exceptions are injury and demotion. The SP doesnt need to be active for all 3 SP, but he must be on your roster. So you can get a SP who has a 3 game slate of NYM, @ Coors, @ SD and sit him for the @ Coors start and be compliant. We all police each other so it works.

    Hes a switch hitter who hit much better vs. RHP than LHP last year. That plays well in Miller Park.

    Id feel pretty good about this team if they add Britton and another RH reliever. Ottavino would be a dream but I don't think its likely they add Britton and Ottavino. I really don't want Machado. Give Andujar another year and if he doesn't improve go after Arenado or a short term deal for Donaldson next offseason (assuming Donaldson bounces back to his Oakland/Toronto years of production).

    I would sign up for that guy's estimate...250/380 with 30 HR. That works nicely at 2B.
  7. 2019 League Settings Discussion

    Extreme streaming became an issue several years back (my league was 20 years old in 2018, still with 8 original owners) and we adopted that 3 start rule. Its worked well for us for over 10 years because we all police each other on it.

    Daily SP streaming can be a problem in daily leagues. Ours dealt with it by requiring any SP that is added has to be on your roster for 3 starts. He doesn't have to make the 3 starts, just be rostered. So if you pick up a guy who has a schedule of @ SD, @ Coors, SF...you can safely sit him for the @Coors start and get the benefit of the other two starts. Its streaming but with a bit more restrictions. Only exceptions are injury and if the guy is sent to bullpen/minors. That makes a guy who was yo-yo'd this year between the majors and minors like Kingham was decently valuable as a FA because you may get a freebie start. Also, we use first come, first served with players. No FAAB. Yeah...we have a lot of moves, but thats part of the fun.

    I have played daily roto 7x7 categories for 20 years. I don't understand weekly leagues. To me...the daily grind of playing matchups and really "managing" your squad is really the fun of the game. Our league tends to be real close most years and every K matters in the scope of the standings so it makes for a great 6 month battle.
  10. Mallex Smith 2019 Outlook

    Smith had a terrific 2nd half and is only 25. His plate discipline improved tremendously in the 2nd half posting a 38/24 K/BB ratio, a .311 AVG (.390 OBP) and he stole 24 bases. A full season of that kind of production makes him very valuable in today's AVG and steals starved leagues. He was going to bat leadoff for Tamps so R would be decent. It remains to be seen where he bats for Seattle.
  11. Trophy Traditions

    My dynasty League has been up for 20 years now. We bought a trophy around year 5. Its just a cup, but we keep adding wooden rings on the bottom with the league winner's name on it. 5 winners to a ring, then a new ring. Next year we add the 5th ring to it. Yeah, we stole the idea from the Stanley Cup, but its still fun.
  12. Max Muncy 2019 Outlook

    [Removed Cool Story] I do wonder how much of this was a "flash in the pan" and not likely to be repeated. His slumps were long and then he got scorching hot. I wonder if the league figures him out next year and he goes back to being an also-ran. I just don't know on him. Hoping to hear from others here.
  13. Max Muncy 2018 Outlook

    What's everyone's opinion on Muncy for a dynasty league? Was this a one hit wonder or could this be consistent every year production?
  14. Buy Low/Sell High 2018

    Buy Low Ryan Braun - Healthy & starting to heat up and could be a real force in that super deep Milwaukee lineup. Johnathon Villar - Will see everyday pt in Baltimore and is playing for his career. Started out 8/17 with power, speed and patience in 4 games (and one 1 K). Marwin Gonzalez - PT wont be an issue with all the Houston injuries. In the last week he has 4 HR. Starting to seem like he is going on that same kind of ridiculous run he ended 2017 on and then carried into the playoffs.
  15. Ryan Braun 2018 Outlook

    He has looked good the last 7-10 days. Maybe primed for a big finish? Milwaukee lineup is very deep
