  1. 2018 MiLB draft results thread

    It's not like he did one stupid thing, he did a lot of stupid things. That said, I agree that he is being discounted a lot but there are still overall question marks. He dominated rookie ball last year but he was 21. I'm more curious where you would have taken him? To me i'd take him over Carlson, Crouse, Bukauskas, Baz but would rather have Peterson, Faedo, and Pearson over him.
  2. 2018 MiLB draft results thread

    Note mine but Ralph from Razzball posted the first round of one he did the other day on Twitter which I found helpful because the idea of Hiura or Ramos lasting to the double digits seems impossible to me.
  3. Keeper help

    Out of those, I'd go Smoak and Weaver. Story at $2 is tempting as I think he is good for a bounce back but it's hard to argue with the power that Smoak showed and Weaver has fairly high upside for $2.
  4. 2017-2018 Off-season and Hot Stove Thread

    It's official No word on the return yet
  5. Noah Syndergarrd trade dynasty

    I would not do the deal. Not necessarily because I don't think it's enough but I don't think it's enough of a win now move for you. Faria has been really good but he is still a rookie and there is still plenty of time for the league to figure him out. Albies and Jimenez are good dynasty league pieces but they are still risks. I do like Bauer for the rest of the year but if you are playing for now, I would try to get better starting pitching than just flipping Syndergaard for what are essentially extra pieces.
  6. Trevor Bauer or Sean Manaea? WHIR

    Bauer. As the poster above me said, clearly something is wrong with Manaea. Bauer seems like he is actually starting to put something together after all of this time of expectations.
  7. Aaron Nola vs Jon Lester **WHIR**

    Nola. If you end up dropping him anyway in an eight team league you should be able to find someone else better. Both are serviceable but go with the hot hand since there is depth on the wire.
  8. Lucroy or Ramos ?

    Both are kind of a gamble but i'd probably go for Ramos. Supposedly they tweaked his swing and i'm a sucker for a player adjustment. Coors factor is nice with Lucroy but that only makes a difference if he starts hitting.
  9. Benintendi or Acuna?

    That's a tough one but as you said, it's all upside with Acuna. At this point it's honestly just about whether you would want to take that risk. I would probably go for Acuna just for the possible production from a fantasy standpoint but giving up Benintendi for that is tough considering how safe he is. Still, safety usually doesn't win you championships.
  10. 2018 Keeper: Rosario or Arcia

    I would take Rosario. I don't trust the power that Arcia is displaying and think Rosario will get on base more frequently.
  11. Story for prospects

    I would rather have Sheffield. At the very least, Sheffield has the luxury of being a Yankees pitcher and there is some hype involved in that. The deal is interesting in that Kingery is a similar prospect to Story a couple of years back (was overlooked and gained more and more interest as he kept overperforming). Tyler O'Neill's stock has fallen pretty dramatically now that he is in STL with a crowded outfield. Overall, i'd probably keep Story but it's close and the main reason is that Story has the Coors factor. I would understand making the deal but I don't think I would do it.
  12. Gregorious or Bregman ROS points

    I'd go with Bergman. As mentioned, he is starting to heat up. Both players hit in good line ups and since it is only a stop gap until Turner comes back, I would try to catch the production that Bregman is offering at the moment.
  13. Minor trade - Which side?

    Points league, I would definitely keep your side. The wheels have been falling off Nova lately but he is usually good for around 6 IP which matters in a points format. Couple that with McHugh who could be decent and Fedde who the Nationals actually need to be good, I would rather have that then a closer who might not have a job, a young Coors pitcher, and Whit Merrifield.
  14. Must add prospect?

    If you are looking in terms of highest ceiling, Brinson definitely has the highest. Rosario has the highest floor as he is viewed more of a safer prospect and his defense will always keep him in the lineup. Brinson has the chance to be a legitimate 20/20 player.
  15. Drop the Hoskins Stash for a Honeywell stash?

    I'd keep Hoskins in either a redraft or dynasty league. Dynasty league a case could be made for Hoskins but ultimately I would go with the hitter. As far as redraft, I don't believe the Rays will promote Honeywell this year due to their depth and the fact that they usually take their time seasoning players in the minors.
