    What an effortless swing.
  2. Trade Eloy for Hendricks?

    I'm in second by a decent margin, but it's a long season. But second is likely best-case...no one is going to beat the team in first unless he has a rash players wake up with missing appendages. Lol. I agree that potential doesn't win. But Eloy's potential is so tantilizing. Lol.
  3. 12-team, traditional 5x5 roto keeper. I'm pretty sure I can get Kyle Hendricks for Eloy Jimenez. This is a keeper league in which we can own a player up to three years. Eloy would be a late rd keeper because he was a FA pickup (we have NA slots) and Hendricks cannot be kept next year. My OFs...JDM, Khrush, Cain, DeShields, Hicks, Cordero, TO'Neill. I also have Olson, Bellinger, Merrifield, and Kingery who are all OF eligible too. My SPs...Nola, Paxton, Pivetta, CSmith, Godley, Cahill, Lyles. Is it worth it to add Hendricks and give up Eloy? I really like this kid, and I believe he'll be up at least by mid-summer (just a gut feeling). But Hendricks can really help stabilize my staff.

    Unfortunately, I don't play in any points leagues, lol. I'm a roto guy.

    Help me out with Adames...why is he a "run must add" player? He looks like a kid with moderate power (10-12 HR) and moderate speed (10-12 SB) who can hit for a solid BA. What am I missing about him that makes him a guy that we need to go run and get right now? Asking sincerely...not being snarky. Trying to learn more about this kid and his potential.

    There was a recent article about Moose possibly going to Atlanta, but the only mention of Herrera was as another trade possibility.

    Different team, different league and all that. I just have a hard time dropping a guy with the power-speed combo that he has. Maybe he doesn't figure it out this year, but I'm willing to give him more time on the bench to figure it out. Part of me hopes he hits the DL again to get this pec injury sorted out for good.
  8. Tyler O'Neill 2018 Outlook

    This dude is so jacked. How many DL stints will he average each season with muscle pulls and strains? Lol.
  9. Kenley Jansen 2018 Outlook

    Feeling better. The Ks still aren't what we're used to, but his ERA/WHIP are back to elite levels and the saves seem to be coming back.

    14 ER in his last 20.1 innings.
  11. Masahiro Tanaka 2018 Outlook

    Never said he was trash. Don't put words in my mouth. I agreed that he is "meh". I also don't believe he's as good as you believe he is because an ERA of 4.50 over 180+ innings isn't good. I can roster another SP with the same or similar WHIP and K rate...but without the 4.50 ERA. So last year and this year...meh.

    [insert pat-on-the-back gif here]
  13. Matt Chapman 2018 Outlook

    He's getting hot again...hitting .458 over the last week. Just the one HR, but the bigger concern with Chapman is his BA. The power his there, so it would be good to see his BA climb back up. I still think he's going to be a .240-.250 hitter this year, but it's good to see a young hitter show improvement in getting on base.
  14. Tyler O'Neill 2018 Outlook

    I'd like to see this kid get a full shot, but I just don't see it happening. I can't see the Cards benching either Ozuna or Fowler to get him PT in the OF. With both players scuffling as badly as they are, maybe they come up with phantom injuries to give them DL stints in hopes that they remember how to hit. Fowler's history suggests he'll get his BA back above .250 or .260, and right now he's on pace for a 81-18-66-11 season despite the .161/.281/.292 slash. He's actually on pace to tie a career high in walks, too. Even thought he's started consecutive games (giving both Ozuna and Fowler days off), I don't think O'Neill can be counted on to start on a regular basis. I kinda hate that he was called back up unless Matheny has a plan to get him regular ABs.
  15. Any supporting data for that hunch...or just a gut feeling? I would love to believe in Brinson, but I just can't buy in right now.
