  1. A "real haul" would not be Hampson/McNeil. Sure Wander was an add, all new players get added to the pool at some point. The point was that McNeil and Hampson don't have gigs locked up in 2019. Matter of fact, both have better odds of not having a starting gig. To suggest that McNeil and Hampson have more value simply because they'll log MLB at bats in 2019 is wild.
  2. You're asking if 2 guys added off waivers in 2018 who don't have full time gigs locked up for 2019 are worth greater than or equal to the heir apparent to the best prospect in baseball?
  3. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Too much fluff. Can't just throw meh prospects at him and expect to get him. I mentioned Bryant for Vlad was declined. Based on that I'm betting the price is a top 30 dynasty bat + an elite prospect. Eloy Tatis or Franco come to mind. I'm not willing to do Bryant/Franco so the price is too steep for me.
  4. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Offered Bryant for him straight up. Declined. That's the most I give although more wouldn't even do it.
  5. Bump Also links should work now.
  6. Top players: J. Altuve, M. Brantley, A. McCutchen, D. Murphy, J. Turner, M. Gonzalez, E. Encarnacion, C. Kimbrel, J. Jeffress, A. Ottavino, K. Maeda
  7. Unique Keeper League in its 11th season looking for 1 owner. Keep 24, draft includes players not kept and players added to the pool in the offseason. This league's scoring is unique in that pitchers score negative points while hitters score positive. The concept is that you get to 54 IP and limit the damage as much as possible. Each ER is -4 points, each K is worth 1 point. There's a lot of strategy that goes into meeting innings. Hitting scoring is a bit more straight forward. Full settings below: http://fantasy.espn.com/baseball/league/settings?leagueId=66180 This league is a heavily prospect driven league. There a few prospect junkies (myself included). The person who takes over this team will have to be more of the same. If you saw guys like George Valera and Miguel Amaya coming mid-season last year, you're definitely a good fit for this league! Here's the team. Some solid pieces offensively, pretty light on prospects and needs some help in the SP department. This team will get the #7 pick every round (repeat draft). http://fantasy.espn.com/baseball/team?leagueId=66180&seasonId=2019&teamId=18 Bottom line: I took over the league a few years ago and turned over 5 or 6 owners. Last year we turned over 1 and then this year we're turning over 1. Pretty solid attrition for an 18 team league! Most of us agree this is our most competitive league. If you're interested, shoot me an email and lets have a conversation. I want to make sure it's a good fit for both of us. alexpitt87@gmail.com
  8. Rate the Team

    Absolutely, Soto is going to be one of the best young players in the league. I'm struggling pulling the trigger on a Soto deal myself. Snell/Buehler for Soto/something. The something is more than likely a replacement level pitcher with limited upside. Point being, if that's the price in my league (competitive 18 team dynasty), then I think you sell high on Degrom and don't look back. It's tougher to do RIGHT now because of the year he had, you'll be happy you did it in a couple years, maybe as soon as this year.
  9. Rate the Team

    Every dynasty rankings list I've seen has had Soto ahead of Degrom. I'd do this. Maybe try and squeeze a bit more. I don't think a deal like this happens any time after midseason this year.
  10. Which SP Prospect? WHIR

    Yep. This. If you can afford to wait, Gore is the guy.
  11. Largest dynasty trade I've ever seen ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Lots of hot garb on team A. I go team B. Big Kieboom and Paddack fan.
  12. Upcoming Dynasty rookie draft 1.01 pick

    Vladdy ain't there so Wander. Pretty easy decision. Wander will be Vlad in 2 years. Baseball America put him at 4 with 70 hit and power grades.
  13. Wander Franco, SS, TB

    Franco might be in the "so good he forces their hand" category. His and Vlad's lines in rookie ball at the same age are nearly identical from a power perspective. However Wander with a better average and k rate. Vlad split his age 18 season between A and high A. If Wander mirrors that I bet he's up at the latest April 2021 (equivalent of Vlad being up in April 2019). I'd be shocked if he was in the show as a teenager. I'm a Wander owner and would love it.... unfortunately it's more likely he'll be 20.
  14. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    ESPN is back up and has him projected at .325 with 24 homers. I could see the homers but hitting .325 as a rookie seems pretty lofty. I'm a believer long term. However that 2019 projection is about 30 points higher than I thought it would be.
