  1. Not really loving dropping any of those pitchers, really. I do like Franmil as an add, though
  2. Don't love Donaldson, but I wouldn't bet on anyone better being dropped. I'd go for it and ditch Fiers or Lamet
  3. I'd start with Lynn or Boyd if you're cool getting a solid but not elite 3B. Otherwise move up to Morton or Ryu
  4. 12 team points, keep 20 of 30 each year plus 10 of 10 prospects. Nothing's really gone my way this year and I'm sitting in the bottom third of the standings. Still kinda feel like I have a pretty solid core, though. I'm looking at selling a few older veteran pieces without pushing my timeline back too far. Trying to find takers for guys like Cruz, maybe Paxton/Bumgarner, already sold David Peralta, etc. Got offered my Gary Sanchez and James Paxton for his Casey Mize, Sixto Sanchez, Christian Pache, and Yadier Molina (prospects could all go to my prospect roster, or I could add some to my MLB roster but couldn't demote them later) My initial thoughts are that I don't really want to move Sanchez because there's so few worthwhile catchers. But I do have Kiebert and Adley on my prospect squad, and Yadi + Garv would be fine for a year or so. Paxton is solid and I'd be comfortable holding, but I do like Mize and Sixto to help out my rotation long term, because my staff got to be pretty old and needs some upside and youth. But I'm not sure if I'd be giving up too much. Rest of my roster for context- C- Sanchez, Garver 1B- Olson, Cron, Garrett Cooper (OF) 2B- Chavis (1B/3B), Cano, Arraez 3B- Machado (SS), Sano, Marwin (everything) SS- Jorge Polanco OF- Judge, Bryant (3B), Haniger, Yordan, Kyle Tucker, Franmil DH- Cruz SP- Paxton, Bumgarner, Severino, Bieber, Musgrove, Carrasco, Kopech, Alcantara, Leake, Pineda, Folty RP- Jansen, Wade Davis, Pressly Prospects- Jo Adell, Brujan, Gonsalves, Graterol, Pearson, Adley Rutschman, Kiebert Ruiz, Brady Singer, Colton Welker, Luis Urias
  5. I'd go Corbin. Everyone has a few bad starts
  6. I don't think it's terrible, but I wouldn't be giving up on Nola quite yet
  7. Curious for some thoughts on this one. 12 team points, where pitching is a lil difficult to come by. I have an offer of my Tatis for his Paddack on the table. I'd expect the initial reactions would be to tell me to keep Tatis, but I'm absolutely loaded at SS both now and in the future- Tatis, Polanco, Trea, plus Wander Franco and Royce Lewis stashed on my minors. So I can definitely absorb the hit (it's actually difficult having those 3 since they eat up my SS and 2 flex slots every day). And, I could use some pitching help. I've also considered countering to see if he would take Trea instead. Thoughts? Leave a link and I'll help out in your thread if you'd like
  8. What's the best place to cleanly see when bulk guys are going to be pitching? Specifically Beeks, I know he's on today, but sometimes it's really difficult to see when he's scheduled and I've missed out a few times
  9. 12 team points, keep 20 of 30 each year, plus 10 of 10 prospects. I feel like my team is solid, but I haven't gotten many breaks this year, and I'm about to lose to one of the worst teams in the league to drop me down to 4-6. There's just not much working for me this year and I'm not sure what the right thing to do is. The roster- C- Gary Sanchez, Mitch Garver 1B- Matt Olson, CJ Cron 2B- Michael Chavis (1B, 3B), Robinson Cano 3B- Kris Bryant (OF), Manny Machado (SS), Miguel Sano SS- Jorge Polanco, Marwin Gonzalez (everything) OF- Aaron Judge, Mitch Haniger, David Peralta, Jay Bruce, Hunter Pence DH- Nelson Cruz SP- Luis Severino, James Paxton, Madison Bumgarner, Shane Bieber, Jake Odorizzi, Joe Musgrove, Jeff Samardzija, Mike Leake, Michael Pineda, Sandy Alcantara, Carlos Carrasco, Michael Kopech RP- Kenley Jansen, Ryan Pressly, Wade Davis, Zack Britton Prospects- Jo Adell, Yordan Alvarez, Vidal Brujan, Stephen Gonsalves, Brusdar Graterol, Nate Pearson, Keibert Ruiz, Brady Singer, Touki Toussaint, Colton Welker Idk, I feel like I have a solid squad for the current and future, but it's just not working Judge and Severino being out all year have really hurt. Would it be the worst idea to try accept defeat this year and to sell off a few of my older guys (thinking mainly Cruz, Paxton, Bum, Odorizzi) for some younger guys? I wouldn't be selling for super young guys since for now I think I could be a contender next year. Thinking maybe trying to get some guys like Luzardo, Mize, Urias that have some real talent and could contribute soon but aren't quite ready just yet. But I'm not sure what to do with this group
  10. 12 team points, keep 20 of 30 each year. I feel that I have a strong squad, but my week to week results vary so much. I'm 3-4 right now, and in 2 of my 3 wins I've finished top 2 in points for the week, but in 3 of my 4 losses, I've finished in bottom 3 in points for the week. Injuries sure haven't helped, but I do still feel like my team is better than it's showing. Any thoughts on how to help stabilize things? Here's what I'm sitting at- C- Gary Sanchez, Mitch Garver (IL) 1B- Matt Olson, CJ Cron 2B- Robinson Cano, Michael Chavis (3B) 3B- Manny Machado (SS), Miguel Sano, Eduardo Escobar (SS) SS- Jorge Polanco OF- Aaron Judge (IL), David Peralta, Trey Mancini (1B), Brandon Nimmo (IL), Hunter Pence DH- Nelson Cruz (IL) SP- Clayton Kershaw, Carlos Carrasco, Luis Severino (IL), James Paxton (IL), Madison Bumgarner, Joe Musgrove, Shane Bieber, Jake Odorizzi, Danny Duffy, Jeff Samardzija, Daniel Mengden, Mike Leake, Michael Kopech (IL) RP- Kenley Jansen, Wade Davis (IL), Ryan Pressly, Zack Britton Is it as simple as being patient and hoping Judge, Paxton, Cruz, etc come back off the IL soon? Or should I be making some big changes? I could likely make a trade centering around Kershaw and Kris Bryant, but pitching is hard to come by in this league and I'm a little hesitant to trade any of my top guys (though Kersh is aging and Bryant's looked strong after some questions heading into the year) Leave a link and I'll help you out with your questions
  11. I love Bauer this year and predict a serious run at the Cy. All over him at his price
  12. Thanks for the help on mine. There's really no reason whatsoever to keep Eloy over Beni- don't do it Tough to say more about who to draft in your league, but with only a handful of keepers, taking Eloy 3rd overall seems like a big overdraft
  13. Thanks for the help on mine. I don't have a problem selling Bell. Hopefully he won't be a 12 HR/year guy any other season in his career, but with the pair of 1Bs you have and Bell's entirely meh season, I'd be comfortable moving him for any of the pitchers you listed
  14. I get 5 keepers in my 12 team points league (25 man roster, price to keep increases by 1 round each year). Pretty set on keeping Berrios (7), Gleyber (16), and Scooter (24). Need to decide who I'm keeping and who I'm trying to trade among the following. Hoskins (4) Paxton (5) Eddie Rosario (10) Mikolas (22) Pitcher are pretty valuable in this league, so I'd like to keep Paxton or Mikolas to ensure I get a decent start of a staff. Paxton is better but wouldn't come at much of a discount, whereas Mikolas is great value but I've seen people question how worthwhile he'll be. Then between Hoskins/Rosario, similar situation. Hoskins is better but not much of a discount, Rosario has solid value but not a steal. Leaning Hoskins here to lock up some stud production. I pick 8th in the draft and will likely try to target Scherzer if he's not kept. I currently don't have a 2nd round pick and can't let the top tier arms all go off the board before I can get one
  15. Don't think that's bad either way, Haniger is solid and I do think Darvish will have a good year. But I'd probably stick with Berrios
