  1. Why are you wanting Votto to hurt your chances at this year and rebuilding? That's the opposite of what you should be doing. If you are in it this year, I can see doing it, but if you're going to rebuild then stay away from doing this.
  2. Pomz: start, sit, or trade?? whir

    Houston fan and I'd still rather have Pom than Keuchel.
  3. Christian Villanueva for Michael Conforto?

    Depends on what spot I need more. I don't buy that it's "clearly Conforto" or anything like that. If I needed a 3B or CI I'd roll the dice on Villanueva. Otherwise I'd stick with Conforto.
  4. Freddie Freeman 2018 Outlook

    When I saw a sophmore in high school I got hit in the buttock by a ball going at least 65. It didn't hurt. I really doubt 25 MPH makes that much of a difference, or being hit on the hand instead of the buttcheek. Maybe Freeman just has an extremely low pain tolerance, or I'm super tough.
  5. Did I give up too much for Votto?

    What's funny is you aren't concerned about giving up the 2 guys with legitimate value, but are concerned about the 1 guy you shouldn't be concerned about. In a 10 team league, I don't mind it. Your pitching it still fine, Votto is the guy you want ESPECIALLY in an OPS league. Smoak is no slouch, and I think he's a legit middle of the order bat. Really love Manaea, but in a 10 team redraft he's dispensible.
  6. Bryant for Bregman?

    I'm a big Bregman fan but this isn't remotely close. Absolutely keep Bryant, regardless of whether it's dynasty or redraft.
  7. Time to drop Jose Martinez for Jose Pirela?

    I mean, yeah, keep JMart, but Pirela as waiver wire fodder? You couldn't be more wrong. last year and this year he has 100 games played, exactly. He has 32 doubles, 6 3B, 10 HR, 6 SB, 29 BB, 86 K in that span. 55 runs, 50 RBI, .295 avg, .348 OBP, .485 SLG? This guy is not waiver wire fodder, especially in anything deeper than a 10 team league. Pirela is very good. No, I wouldn't cut Martienz for him, but I'd try to find a way to add Pirela.
  8. Jakob Junis 2018 Outlook

    It's simply not a great matchup and I have better options. The #'s against him "in his career" against the angels aren't really relevant to me. Junis looks to be a different pitcher now, so I would discount any career stats. In general, I'm not a big fan of career stat numbers, but they can be useful in certain circumstances.
  9. Jakob Junis 2018 Outlook

    Pretty small sample. I'm not starting him, but this has nothing to do with why.
  10. Jose Ramirez For A. J. Polloch

    Definitely pass.
  11. Am I nuts? Altuve/McCullers for JoRam/Upton

    I made this trade in my deep keeper (18 teams keep 24). I'm a Houston fan, but I had Altuve, Springer, Correa, Bregman, Marwin, Lance, Giles... I needed a change. I gave up Altuve, Edwin Encarnacion, and Anthony Rendon for JoRam and Freddie Freeman. EE/Rendon for FF would have been close, so I pretty much swapped Altuve for JoRam. JoRam starting slow has made me hate myself a little, but he'll come around. I'm a believer. I also don't expect him to keep 2B eligibility, so I'll have to figure that out during the year.
  12. Thor worth this

    No, he is worth much, much more.
  13. Lopsided trade - am I being dramatic?

    I mean, I'm not a huge Sonny Gray fan, but if the guy needs pitching and is buying on Hosmers growth at the plate. Rizzo gives you, what, 7 more homers? I just looked, Rizzo has hit 32 the last 2 years. Hosmer has his 25 the last 2 years. The runs and RBI's were very close, with an edge to Rizzo. However, with Hosmers (possible) big boost in BA, that can sway a guy towards Hos, too. In a 5x5, you take Rizzo first, but Hosmer is not a bad consolation at all. If the guy likes Sonny Gray and feels that helps his pitching staff, then I think it's a great trade. As an outsider, I think it's a perfectly reasonable deal, where particular details could sway to to be a wider gap, but as is, it looks like a great trade. So, yes, I do think you're being a bit dramatic. Sorry. Even if Rizzo wasn't hurt, I see no problems here.
  14. Kyle Tucker, OF HOU

    You are a smart guy. I know it, I've seen you post some great stuff. Completely different circumstances about Correa coming up and considering Tucker. I don't think Tucker coming up has anything to do with arbitration. I think it has everything to do with need. We don't know that 1) he will definitely be needed and 2) he will be ready.
  15. How much FAAB to use? Will help in return.

    With that many guys rostered, I'd easily, EASILY, put up at least half my money for him. The way I see it, it's like waiver priority. If you had the #1 waiver spot, would you burn it to go to last for the rest of the year? Absolutely. Being last in FAAB is just about like being last in waiver order, except you still have a fighting shot at marginal guys. Put 750 on him, then try dink and dunk the rest of the year. Or at least 500. Don't be afraid the spend the FAAB. One in the hand is worth two in the bush.
