  1. Yessir, make that move. Even with Braun's injury, your offense is robust enough to lose a hitter like Morrison. Your rotation could use a quality pitcher like Berrios.
  2. Montgomery was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. The move appears to be on a temporary basis, as reliever Ben Heller was recalled to provide some bullpen depth prior to the upcoming All-Star break. Montgomery allowed two earned runs over a rain-shortened 4.1 innings Friday and the Yankees won't need a fifth starter until July 17, so he'll be removed from the active roster for now. The young southpaw finishes a productive first half of the 2017 campaign with a 3.65 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP to go along with an 87:28 K:BB
  3. Miranda. His strikeouts aren't great and the peripherals are discouraging. Mike Montgomery would be second, but he has more potential IMO.
  4. Here's 16 I have above Story for this season: 1. Correa 2. Machado 3. C. Seager 4. Segura 5. Bogaerts 6. Lindor 7. Andrus 8. Owings 9. Cozart 10. Simmons 11. Nunez 12. Villar 13. Gregorius 14. Gyorko 15. A. Cabrera 16. Peraza Story is above guys like Swanson, Arcia, Russell, Baez, Galvis, Crawford, Barreto, Semien etc. in my opinion. CSB, I own Story in a 10-team league with a MI and a utility spot. The only one of those 15 who is unowned is Cabrera, and I would probably make the switch if we didn't have weekly acquisition limits and Story wasn't at home this week. I do believe there's more upside with Story than with other options, so I agree with your points that some teams in most leagues could stand to own Trevor Story (I happen to own one of those teams in my league). EDIT: Forgot Villar. Might have missed some guys as I made this quickly and the rankings could certainly change as I think more about it. Bigger point is those guys I prefer to Story ROS.
  5. Add Verlander and drop Polanco.
  6. Who are your other keepers? It sucks to lose a valuable, young keeper like Turner, but this will help you win this year. Darvish should be a good keeper for a couple more seasons.
  7. Thank you! I do get to keep him for 2 years. I was really looking for an elite keeper, as I was poised to keep McCullers and Murphy, which is really not exciting as neither are top 20 players IMO (I can't keep Scherzer). You get 5 adds per week and most are used on pitching streamers. I will now drop Meyers for streamers, and drop Norris for a closer. We can only play one RP in this league, so Giles, Chapman and Knebel are sitting there. It does make me uncomfortably reliant on Cole and Tanaka, so I might try another deal for a pitcher.
  8. Thank you for the help on mine. I'd drop Porcello for Cahill. Porcello just hasn't shown signs of life this season, and if we think back to his value before the Cy Young season he was a fringe fantasy play in shallower leagues. Cahill flashed top 40 upside before he got hurt, and your format doesn't penalize his poor supporting cast. Two starts this week to boot. I'd also consider Folty and M. Montgomery to be ahead of him. I know others have suggested to drop Rodon, but his season is just beginninng and he has enough upside that I'd want to see how things pan out.
  9. I'd like to hear some thoughts on this deal I sent (and was just accepted). 10 team points league. Keep 2 for 2 years maximum. Receive: Mike Trout Alex Meyer Daniel Norris Send: Cody Bellinger Michael Fulmer Jacob Faria Right now my staff is: Scherzer, McCullers, Lester, Cole, Tanaka, Jordan Montgomery, Danny Duffy and Trevor Cahill I'm 7-6 and right in the playoff hunt. 4 teams make it and I am in 4th. Post your link and I'll give return the favor.
  10. He was a major prospect though. Top 15 prospect last year on most lists.
  11. Those rates prorated over 142 games played would produce 25 home runs. That's not too shabby, especially for a guy who has never reached double digit homers before this season. You might be right that the power surge is done, but if he can hit another 12-15 homers the rest of the way I'd be content.
  12. Do it. Yes, there is a possibility Jake Lamb is better than Kris Bryant the rest of the way, but the most likely scenario is Bryant outperforms him. You have to go Bryant here IMO.
  13. It's a pretty juicy matchup against the Angels tomorrow. Unfortunately he probably needs to get stretched out so he might not throw enough innings to qualify for a win. Despite improvements on recent numbers, the high BB% (17.6% since May 1) is troublesome. He has shown markedly better control in the past (5.4 BB% over 102.1 IP and 18 starts/22 games). I would scoop him up in 12+ team leagues if you can afford it. If he's still available in a dynasty he's well worth a stash with his upside.
  14. I don't see a drop. I would rather have Brinson, but you never really know when these prospects get the call. If your gut tells you Fisher over Brinson then go that way. Otherwise, stand pat.
  15. I think this is the move also. Gallo would be a fine drop as well, you have plenty of power hitters and he is a drain on the batting average.
