  1. Bregman/Torres for Greinke

    In a true dynasty no way I make that move. If it's more of a limited keeper situation (keep 5 or so), I might bite.
  2. Greinke and Pham for J Turner and Margot

    Greinke and Pham by a long shot.
  3. Keeper trout bellinger Hoskins

    I would only really consider that if you can't keep Trout beyond this season.
  4. Rank these SP **WHIR**

    They are all really close, and I hate to project wins, but I am going to use that as the tiebreaker, as it is worth so much in your league: 1. Verlander 2. Darvish 3. Greinke
  5. Knebel for Weaver.... thoughts?

    In a short term keeper league I would make that trade. Weaver is a nice piece, but I think getting a top 5 closer to pair with Osuna would be valuable. FWIW if the contracts were more like 5+ years I would stick with Weaver.
  6. Robinson Chirinos 2018 Outlook

    I don’t think that’s an unreasonable expectation. I would be a little more conservative in the games played at 105 or so, and project the home runs to be around 18 with a .240 BA, which is still more than serviceable as an AL only catcher. If you wait on catcher in a deeper mixed league he is a nice target also.
  7. Brand new 12 team dynasty points league, hosted on Fantrax. $50 buy in, collected through Fantrax Treasurer. Collecting 2 years' dues before the draft. We are trying to get the draft started either Sunday or Monday, so let's fill this league! Looking for serious and dedicated owners who will check their lineups regularly, respond to trade offers and show general competitiveness. Slow draft will begin when we have a full and paid league. Snake draft, with positions randomized 1 hour before the draft. Each team will have 3 hours to make their pick (though hopefully most will be quicker). Clock will be frozen from 12am-8am EST, but picks can still be made. Rosters will have 30 major leaguers and 20 prospects. 14 hitters will be started (C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CI, MI, 5 OF, 2 Util) and 9 pitchers. There are 5 DL spots. Yearly Payouts: 1st: $400 2nd: $150 3rd: $50 Scoring:
 Hitting Walks 1 
Singles. 1 Doubles 2 Triples 3 Home Runs. 4 Runs 1 RBI 1 Stolen Bases. 2 Caught Stealing. -1 Strikeouts -0.5 Hit by Pitch 1 Grand Slams 6 Pitching Innings 3 Strikeouts 1 Hits. -1 Walks. -1 Hit Batsman -1 Earned Runs -2 Quality Starts 5 Wins. 2 Complete Games 4 Shutouts 2 Losses. -3 Saves. 5 Holds 3 If you are interested message me here, or leave your email and I will send you the league information.
  8. Make this trade for Arenado?

    That's a no brainier trade. Arenado is young and a top 5 dynasty asset. Those pitchers are solid, but nowhere near the value of even Arenado on his own.
  9. Strasburg or Weaver?

    It has to be Strasburg and Buehler by a wide margin. Sure, both have their injury history, but Strasburg is a proven top 10 pitcher. He’s still just 29. And Buehler has a very high ceiling. Weaver is a very promising young pitcher. Puk is a great prospect with pedigree and promise. But there is just too much variance on that side. Weaver has only shown it in the majors for a third of a season. You hope he turns into what Strasburg is. There’s always the chance Weaver is this year’s Severino, Strasburg gets hurt and the Weaver side wins. That’s just the nature of the game. But the wise play here is going with the bird in the hand over the bird in the bush.
  10. Darvish/ pollock straight up for mookie

    In an 8 team league I would keep Mookie. Elite players are worth more in a shallower format. I would instead search for some cheaper pitching by dangling some of your prospects and/or closers in negotiations.
  11. Correa, Blackmon, or Turner?

    Thanks for the help on mine. I would go with Correa. I think he has the upside to be a transcendent player who helps across the board. He has a lower floor than Turner because with the scarcity of speed, Turner will always have value, but I think the ceiling is higher and I expect him to reach that in the next year or two. I would rather stay away from Blackmon (compared to the other two) with his age and possible decline in SB, as well as the possibility of leaving Coors. I don’t think he will leave, but when assessing long-term value, I take the situation out of it more. That being said, I’m sure keeping Blackmon would be fine, as those are three top caliber options.
  12. Player Values & Keepers...What say you? WHIR

    Thanks for the help on mine. I think I would lean with the guys you chose. Kershaw does scare me with the back issues, but that is a pretty good price point, and given your other options I think he’s your best bet. The same can be said for Keuchel. Harper I would definitely keep there. I think Upton is also a good buy at $19. You lot cheaper guys aren’t quite high enough caliber where I’d want them with the saved money. Those four give you a nice core to start.
  13. 14 team dynasty H2H points, start 3 OF, but they are broken into LF, CF and RF. Also one Util spot. Keep forever, no penalty or auction cost Team A gives: Andrew Benintendi AJ Pollock Chris Archer Team B gives: Mike Trout In a vacuum which side do you take? Post your links and I will help as best I can.
