  1. 2018 MLB Trade Rumors and Deadline Thread

    Ugh them giving up Sixto would be so depressing as a Phillies fan. I know pitching prospects are so hit or miss but still he looks like he's got as good a chance as any to do big things.
  2. Who is my 5th keeper? **WHIR**

    So I always have a difficult time evaluating points leagues pitcher vs batter. Can you give me an idea of how many points some of these guys have put up to give me an idea about how they're valued comparatively? So in my mind it's wither Buehler or Soto, with Nola/Acuna behind them. I own Acuna and Soto as well and while I think Acuna is still a stud in the making with slightly more raw power and significantly more speed, any format that penalizes Ks is going to favor the player with the better on base skills which gives Soto the edge (unless SBs are super valuable given your settings). I also agree that IF Harper goes on an absolute tear in the second half he's a strong consideration especially if you finish in the top of the league. Again even with a bad AVG he has an elite on-base skills which is nice in a points setting that penalizes Ks.

    Not great, but starting
  4. July Closer Thread 2018

    I was referring specifically about the quote from Andre, who mentioned that "what if teams trade their closers, and get worse". It's ambiguous wording but he never specifically said they were getting worse, and would therefore get less saves, because they lost their closer. Plenty of teams who are selling closers are also selling other players who will make their team worse overall (eg the Orioles with Machado) which is what I assume Andre was referring to. So yes he was abrasive and wrong. Hence my desire to call him out.

    Trading other players will though. Ala Orioles and Britton/Machado. lolol
  6. Kyle Tucker 2018 Outlook

    Fwiw he struggled early this year in the minors as well before catching fire. Don't own him but if I did I'd be as patient as you can afford.
  7. Rich Hill 2018 Outlook

    In this half year yeah, but we still have a long season to go. Stripling and Buehler have never gone a full MLB season so who knows how they'll hold up, and Ryu/Maeda have a long a history of intermittent injuries. It's the Dodgers, they'll manipulate the DL and go to 6 man rotations and rotate people to the bull pen all year. Outside of Kershaw almost all Dodgers starters don't get a ton of innings year to year. Yeah for now Hill's the odd-man out but I doubt the situation remains constant year long.
  8. Rich Hill 2018 Outlook

    Dodgers' manager Dave Roberts announced that Rich Hill will not make his scheduled start on Saturday against the Angels. Instead, Alex Wood will start in his place on Saturday while Hill will be available out of the bullpen for the weekend's series. Hill has struggled mightily as of late, so perhaps shifting him to the bullpen could yield better results. With Walker Buehler returning Friday and Hyun-Jin Ryu not far off, there may not be room for a struggling Hill in the team's rotation after the All-Star break. Jul 13 - 7:53 PM "Struggled mightily" is a huge stretch, but looks like they're putting him in the bullpen for now. Womp womp...
  9. Hmmm not sure there. I think he maybe has a slight edge in raw power and clearly an edge in SB potential but, Soto's plate discipline in an OBP setting is huge. Need to see more of a healthy Acuna though to really judge.
  10. Do this trade? WHIR

    Any kind of innings limit? I like the group overall but you're not hugely deep. If you have no inning limit I'd probably stick with Porcello for now.
  11. Yeah I've got a close eye on Gardner, just not sure who I can drop (keeping in mind Correa will require a drop after the ASB as well). I think LeMahieu is largely expendable though given the 2B available to me so maybe. I've tried to move Markakis but no luck, at least not at a reasonable price given his production. Tried Acuna/Clevinger for Snell but no dice. Probably gonna have to wait for a hot streak from Acuna if I'm going to get a good enough return on him. Thanks for the advice.
  12. Do this trade? WHIR

    Need team/league context. It's not awful but I would tend to think Porcello could net a slightly better return than that. Depends on what the replacement level players are however.
