  1. I'd probably drop Mikolas and add Heaney going for the K upside but with the understanding you may lose out on some wins with the swap.
  2. It's pretty fair for both sides given your standings but I do like your side better and I think you are buying low on Puk and Hoerner. Puk has higher potential than May and since pitching is so volatile, I would rather go with the potential as opposed to the stable presence in May. Hoerner at that point is an added bonus.
  3. In the case of age, I don't think you need to list them all out given they are all pretty young comparable to the MLB but it should be noted that speed tends not to age well. That said, if SB's are even more important, I think I would rank the three as you have it there in a dynasty league but Alonso and Alvarez are pretty close. If you were to somehow deal Robles for Alvarez and Alonso though, I would do that deal all day but even with a premium on speed I would probably not do that deal if I was the owner of Alvarez and Alonso.
  4. Makes sense - I say go for it. I personally like Nola a bit more based on team context but at that point you are more or less breaking even between Nola and Corbin while getting the slight extra piece with Yarbrough.
  5. This is a hard one to judge without knowing what other prospects are available in your league so that you can replenish your system to know how big of a hit giving up Franco and Manning is. For instance, if Carter Kieboom is on the wire, that eases the sting of losing Franco because you are replacing him with someone who is still fairly top tier. Giving up Franco in particular is tough but you are getting enough back for now where it is not the end of the world. You also have some other strong young prospects in Robinson and Valera. I think this one really depends on if you are confident enough that you have a shot at winning now.
  6. If you need pitching this deal seems counter intuitive unless you really don't believe in Nola.
  7. If you are on the fence about keeping him in the first place then you should do this deal. He's not due back until September and those three could really help you with a push.Out of the two, i'd probably go for Price and Stroman with the understanding that Stroman is likely to be moved at the deadline potentially to a playoff contender which could help with Wins.
  8. Agreed with others that I can't see the other owner taking it. To your point on Giolito regression, it's not out of the realm of possibilities but I would not bank on that. He has the pedigree and it seems like the White Sox pitching staff are tapping into something with their young starters at the moment.
  9. Given your roster size and league context, I am surprised that pitching would be considered crazy thin. In a ten teamer there should be plenty of choices on the wire, especially for streaming purposes. If you are choosing between the two, I would definitely do the first deal over the second deal. Bieber is pitching well but if anything it seems like more of a sell high on him and Baez has top 20 (arguably 10) value. The second deal is fine too but I would rather go for the proven commodity in Baez rather than the rookie swap.
  10. Agreed with the above. If you are comfortable with your save situation, this is a good deal for you. DeGrom is an ace and as you said, Paddack will be on an innings limit.
  11. You can offer it but if the LeClerc owner is remotely savvy, they will probably reject it.
  12. I would definitely do this. Manaea is being undervalued right now and should be able to help you soon. Hicks was dominant in the closer role but there is no garauntee he gets that job back or can even return to his former self, especially with Martinez pitching the way he has. I would probably drop Strickland though.
  13. Just a hunch but if he continues to keep producing in the regular season, I can see the timeshare coming down pretty drastically. He's definitely not a great option for standard leagues at the moment but deeper leagues and two catcher leagues he is still a sleeper.
  14. I'd probably put him ahead of Flores. There is a case to be made to put him ahead of Newton as well but the only concern with Nova is that he is a long ways away and could flame out really quickly. There is tons of upside there as he has real power and speed and if he taps into it all could be a 20/20 threat who has good defensive range and could play all around the diamond. In short, I consider Nova a good post-hype sleeper.
  15. In order for my personal preference: Ruiz, Cabello, Roederer, Downs, Newton, Flores, Garcia, Lavigne, Nunez, Ornelas, Severino, Scott, Marcano Definitely a solid deep league pick. I worry that he has the type of profile that will not age well and TB does take the slow approach with development but their track record is hard to deny.
