  1. I'll save you from the headache of having to decide those additional 14 moves... your one and only move should be quitting any league that imposes such a stupid rule as a 15 transaction limit...
  2. eh... it's not that weird given that it's Hunter Pence and not like Tatis Jr. The injury doesn't really affect his swing and all in all, he hasn't been out all THAT long to get rusty. Given that he'll just DH, and won't need to play in the field, there's not much of a reason to keep him down there instead of bringing him back up to showcase him for a trade
  3. I don't think he's going to be "babied" per se but I think you gotta face reality. Strikeout pitchers tend to throw a lot of pitches to get guys out since they don't pitch to contact. Unless you're one of the old school guys still throwing 120+ pitches a game, that means that you are probably looking at about 6 IP for the most part these days. And coming off TJ, even more likely. I don't think they will unreasonably pull him early to "save" him, but they just won't let him go 7/8 innings throwing 120 pitches. I think they would want to stretch him to about 90ish pitches and about 6 IP
  4. Vazquez by far I think. Jansen would be my second option but he has only been hot lately. We'd be gambling to see if he continues the streak while Vazquez had been decent all year. Sisco is Jansen without the upside, I'd pass on him
  5. I would take Jansen over him. We've seen enough of Molina this year to know what's up. I'd move on
  6. I think only player that's worth anything of real value on that list is Soroka. Laureano is decent but you're likely getting similar value back in Suarez. Wheeler... no thank you sir. Honestly, I'd take the Soroka side just to unload Wheeler screwing up my numbers.
  7. Thanks for all your replies guys. I got Trout in that deal and that's exactly what I was thinking. I also have Pence coming back from injury so basically one of those OF would have been dropped anyways. It stunk to give up Bauer but I'm also sick of his roller coaster of either 15Ks or 15 ERA every game
  8. What I meant to say is that Goldy is stinking it up and you're not "selling low" on him. You're trying to salvage whatever value you can get for him while you still can before he becomes basically worthless. There are plenty of "stars" that become worthless every year. This year it's Goldy, last year it was Votto. Selling them while you still can and moving on to someone better is essential rather than staying bought in for the entire year on a useless player who will drag your team down and not return any actual value in a trade
  9. very tough decision... I think it's a very fair trade for either team. I'm kind of between a rock and a hard place here. I hate giving up the top player, even for a good return. BUT... you really do need pitching. Honestly though, I wouldn't take it. I would see if I could improve my pitching without having to give up Yelich. I think he's just too valuable, esp in a 15 team league. Maybe you can see if you can get a decent deal on Puig given his current hot streak? thanks for mine
  10. thank you for mine. I think Marquez kills you with ERA/WHIP in Colorado and you can get K's from other names here. I wouldn't do it. Here's my general outlook on this situation. It seems like there are plenty of options on waivers here. If one of these guys struggles, who cares? Just replace them with one of many options here. I would go for upside personally. My top pick is Lamet here. Really high upside and he won't be limited with innings. After that I think you gamble on either Canning or Gallen. I would personally go with Canning at least for now since he's shown flashes and it seems like they are really giving him a chance there. Gallen is intriguing but we're not sure if he'll stay up or what they are doing with that entire lineup. But he's worth a shot too. Everyone else is just boring and will always be on waivers if you need them. None of them are breaking out, you're not losing anything by passing on them. I always go for high upside.
  11. thank you very much for mine. Yup, you are definitely in great need of pitching. I would certainly move Goldy. #1 he's underperforming and #2 you need pitching more that whatever he's going to produce. I would maybe give it another week or so to find some better deals. Maybe Goldy will get better after the break and you will get someone better. Or maybe he'll continue slumping and you won't even get Price for him. It's a gamble honestly. Personally, I think I would move on because I don't have confidence in that entire Cardinals crew. Seems like they are all sliding together. I would try to get value out of Goldy while you still can. Can you also maybe try to package Goldy + pitcher for a better pitcher than Price?
  12. no way would I do that... Hamilton is basically done. I don't see anyone else giving him a chance. Davis is alright but Rosario is better and Frazier is replacement value player... I wouldn't do it
  13. Hendricks for consistency, Lamet for the upside... Maeda is still a ways away and we're not sure how he will perform but Lamet seems to be doing alright... 3 runs in 5 vs Dodgers with 7 K's is a very strong statement from Lamet
  14. I think you should be looking to improve your OF. I think you can part ways with Abreu to replace Cooper
  15. Benintendi has always been overrated... yeah Stanton is an injury risk but Benintendi has half the ceiling. And even if it doesn't work out, I'm sure you'll find someone down the road to replace that kind of production without issues
