  1. Luis Castillo 2018 Outlook

    Here here. Dealt Chris Sale in a dynasty for this reason 3 years ago. Have regretted it ever since. Not all connective tissue is equal. Pretty sure I'd rather have Castillo and his small frame over Ohtani and his heavy splitter usage.
  2. Charlie Blackmon 2018 Outlook

    Totally. And it’s not a foregone conclusion that the Rockies deal him. Blackmon reportedly wants to work out an extension w/ Colorado and he’s a fan favorite. Wouldn’t be shocked if he gives them a home team discount if he can retire in Col.
  3. Danny Salazar 2018 Outlook

    IMO he's fine to own provided that you have a top 5 ace who can mop-up the occasional meltdown. The Salazar I know and love can string together a few solid QS and then follow that up with a 1/3IP 7ER stinker.
  4. Id assume he’s getting the all star veteran rest.
  5. First year keeper league draft strategy

    A couple of things to remember is that your league-mates are going to be zeroing in on younger toolsy guys and there's likely to be a ton of value in the more established "boring" veteran players. In a 10 team, keep 4 you should really only be keeping top 40 players so be mindful in most of your trades to be the side getting the best single player back in the deal and don't take chump dump 3 for 1 deals where you're sending the best player back. Also if you time it right you can package a hot minor league call up in a deal to improve one of your 4 keepers and that is almost always a good idea. GL!
  6. Rhys Hoskins 2018 Outlook

    Great read! I see him as an easy top 100 with a floor btwn OF2 and OF4 depending on how quick he gets going & adjusts. I'd bet in an OPS over AVG 5x5 (or 6x6 with SLG or OPS added) he'd fetch ~$35 + on draft day. CSB: As a $1 2017 FaaB pickup I held for 1/2 the year and now get to keep for $2 I don't have to worry about his cost and just get to laugh a lot at the horrible trade offers I'm seeing. Same goes for $2 Acuna.
  7. John Collins 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    I’ve got him in a keeper league so holding regardless but ya for those redraft/single season formats it’s gonna be a tough hold.
  8. John Collins 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Was really hoping 25 would be Collins floor post tread deadline.
  9. Lol. ESPN and Rotoworld have heads up asses and sometimes the contrarian hot take is the one that keeps your name in circulation. Elf is going to step in as the starter. That they're running Booker at the 1 speaks volumes to how bad off they are at the position.

  15. Josh Richardson 2017-2018 Outlook

    Drafted him in an auction keeper for $2 but dropped when he went cold a few weeks in. Thankfully I was able to get him as a "throw in" on another trade w/ a GM who undervalued him. whew. Not gonna be leaving this roster again. I think he's got top 25 upside in the next year or two.
