  1. Robbie Ray 2018 Outlook

    Halfway point of the year- Buy or sell? Strikeout numbers have been good since returning from injury, but he's in 4 starts he's given up 0, 6, 4, and 2 earned runs, and he's only lasted 6 innings once. What are we thinking?
  2. Use #1 waiver for Travis Shaw? (whir!)

    Yeah I would. Not an absolute stud, but he's a solid starter and it might be quite awhile until the next guy at Shaw's tier or better comes up on the WW, if that ever even happens http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/705610-trade-kershaw-whir/
  3. Moncada or Nola? DYNASTY WHIR

    I'm honestly shocked at how many people are saying anything other than "Nola by far". There's absolutely no question to this one
  4. trade question 100% whir

    Whoever's getting Arenado is robbing the other side blind
  5. Which team wins this trade? WHIR

    Pretty much the same as what others are saying, B for me. Don't think it's that drastically bad, but I'd still pick B without too much second thought
  6. WHIR: Matt Olson for Khris Davis ROS

    I like Khris over Olson (Khris feels significantly safer). Pollock/Hoskins is a bit of a tossup and could go either way based on health for Pollock and simply how hot Hoskins gets. I'd be really tempted to move Pollock for Hoskins to get that 1B upgrade, I really don't like Hicks at all
  7. Which Side Would You Take - 100% WHIR

    Freeman. He's just straight up better than Rizzo, helps in every category, and Flaherty's not playing well enough to make up the difference
  8. Harper for Sanchez?? WHIR

    I think you have to keep Harper here. Regardless of actual value they bring to your team, Harper just has much higher trade value solely based on his name. You could probably do Harper for Sanchez and another solid piece though. But I wouldn't do Harper/Sanchez straight up
  9. I actually don't think it's that bad, but I would definitely want a better hitter or two paired with Snell. For now I'd say fairly easily Arenado, but not as bad as most of the other posts have made it seem
  10. Muncy or Aguilar...who's better keeper? WHIR!

    Aguilar here too. Just seems a bit safer http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/705610-trade-kershaw-whir/
  11. I'd do the trade. Your current 3 guys all have nice keeper value, but aren't THAT talented to where I'd be rushing to keep them. I think Arrieta will be fine to solid for the rest of the year. It seems like his career is definitely on the decline, but he still has decent value through the end of the year. I like Justin Turner over Nimmo as a utility here either way http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/705610-trade-kershaw-whir/
  12. Trade Kershaw? WHIR

    The offer: My Kershaw for his Victor Robles, Alex Reyes, Kiebert Ruiz. Robles and Reyes have to stay on a major league roster, Ruiz would be put on a minor league roster League details 12 team points deepish keeper Head to head weekly matchups Top 6 make playoffs Top 3 earn money Team details 6-8 record after this week, 3-way tie for 7th place Majors- 30 slots + 3 DL, keep 20 each year Start- C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF x3, Flex x2, SP x5, RP x3 Minors- 10 slots, keep 10 each year No demoting players from majors to minors, players on minors have to be promoted once they exceed MLB rookie limits Majors C- Sanchez (DL), Yan Gomes 1B- Rizzo, Jose Martinez (OF) 2B- Whit, Enrique Hernandez (SS, 3B) 3B- Machado, Beltre, Senzel SS- Andrus, Polanco OF- JD Martinez, Eaton, Joc Pederson, Heyward, Peralta SP- Kershaw, Severino, Archer (DL), Stripling, Samardzija, Guerra, Quintana, Duffy, Roark, Fulmer, Anibal Sanchez, Jordan Zimmermann, Ervin Santana (DL) RP- Jansen, Morrow, Boxberger, Barraclough Minors 1. Michel Baez 2. Michael Chavis 3. Zack Collins 4. Will Craig 5. Jason Groome 6. Lourdes Gurriel Jr 7. Julio Pablo Martinez 8. Nate Pearson 9. Brent Rooker 10. (empty) Current thoughts on trade My team will be 6-8 after this week and in a 3-way tie for 7th place. I feel like my team is better than that record, but at this point in the year, it is what it is. I think I still have a slight chance at sneaking into the playoffs this year, but it's not looking good. I've kinda given up on winning a title, and think it'd take everyone clicking at the right time for me to finish top 3 in the money. I do still think I have a really nice long term core with Sanchez, Severino, Machado, etc, but I am more and more considering trying to trade guys like Kershaw and JD if I can get good returns I'd really like to add some pitching help, not subtract, as it gets pretty iffy after my top 3ish guys. But with Kershaw being unreliable in terms of health, I think now would be the time to trade him before it's too late if I can get some solid value for him in return. Especially if I'm going to formally accept not making the playoffs this year, I think I should trade Kersh since in points I really need quality pitchers I can rely on all year long- I need a consistent inflow of points, not just certain ratios/stats Regarding the return- I like both Robles and Reyes but think they're risky. Robles has a ton of talent, but you never know after a big arm injury like he had. Reyes looks incredibly talented, but he also looks incredibly injury prone. Both would have to remain on my major league roster, and I would have to use two of my 20 keeper slots to keep them. Right now it's looking like I'd have space to keep both of them without too much issue, but it would make things a bit tighter. As for Ruiz, I like him, but he's someone I'd view more as a nice boost to the farm system rather than a huge win in the trade So, I'm not entirely sure. I think I'm getting decent value back, but also a ton of risk. I could counter with something like Robles plus an established major leaguer (guy also has Bauer and Nola, both of which I love but don't think he'd accept) to help mitigate that risk. But probably wouldn't be able to get as high of a ceiling in return. I don't think it's a bad deal per say, but I don't really know if it makes sense for me either Thanks for the read and the help. Leave a link and I'll help you out as well
  13. Madison Bumgarner 2018 Outlook

    Perhaps starts against the Padres and Rockies got him back on track
  14. Giancarlo Stanton 2018 Outlook

    Maybe I missed it earlier in the thread, but does anyone have some insight towards that new batting stance? Sure looks awkward as all hell and seems damn near impossible to pull anything when standing like that. Wondering why he changed it and if the new stance could be part of the reason the production is so far down
  15. Jorge Soler 2018 Outlook

    Ditched in one of my leagues. Had a good time while he was hot and will keep an eye on him, but I like riding hot streaks with a slot or two from my offense, and it was time for Soler to go
