  1. Elvis Andrus 2018 Outlook

    Has been activated. Yet no chatter. Do people still not believe? Has he been forgotten about? Was hitting the ball well first couple weeks of the season before his injury. Hopefully he picks up right where he left off.
  2. Mookie Betts 2018 Outlook

    ah the old weekly league dilemma. Sit or start Betts? He'll probably come back on Friday had hit 9 homeruns over the weekend.
  3. 2018 Completed Trades Thread

    The art of trading boys: 14 team, 10 keepers 17/18 offseason trade - Give Luis Castillo, Get Ozzie Albies Yesterday - Give 2019 5th round pick (15th round), get Luis Castillo Today - Give Albies, Get Bregman and Snell I basically just traded a draft pick for Bregman and Snell and I'm sitting in 1st thanks in part to Albies hot start.

    but he's got super sweet eligibility. I'm holding out hope that he turns it around for that reason alone.

    Another positive note is that his babip is kind of low. .243 compared to his career .286 babip. He's also hitting more flyballs than ever (53%) so as someone mentioned above once the weather warms up, some of those flyballs will turn into dingers.

    Not to mention he's got a 1-3 record in 9 starts. I am unfortunate enough to own him in 1 league that counts W instead of QS.

    Nice start today, but I am selling all of my shares ASAP. 5.33 FIP 5.85 xFIP 5.51 SIERA
  8. Drop Inciarte for DeShields? WHIR

    Even hitting 9th with Albies, Acuna, and FF after him he'll still hold some value, although not as much as last year where he hit over .300 and led the league in AB's. I'd still take him over Deshields.
  9. The team in my sig is a my 14 team dynasty (51 man rosters, 45 players kept) H2H cats. Scoring is included. My team seems pretty solid, with C and my 2nd utility bat being my most glaring offensive holes, this is because Pham and Andrus are a bit banged up. So I am not too worried about my offense. Felt good about my pitching going into the year but guys like Price, Shark, Q, and Taillon pulling me down a bit. Should I address my SP or any other positions? Or should I hold and not overthink it?
  10. Need to drop a pitcher and don't want to regret it

    Triggs or Smith Flaherty is in the minors, yes, but it's only a matter of time before he's back up for another start. Be patient with him, Wainwright isn't exactly the picture of perfect health the last few years.

    My bad, I missed that. I tuned in in the bottom of the 8th

    It was Diaz this time.

  15. Jordan Montgomery 2018 Outlook

    Can't wait to see what he does tomorrow. I like him a lot and wish I had more shares of him. He's a big dude (6'6'', 225). Should be able to hold up over the years. Nick Pollock of pitcherlist.com has him ranked at 37 and one of his bold predictions was that he'd end up a top 25 arm. Jordan Montgomery held a 12.2% whiff rate across all his pitches last season, including 18%+ marks on both his curveball and slider. His absurdly high release point adds deception to all his pitches, creating a downward plane that makes it tough for batters to identify pitches. His excellent secondary pitches set a foundation for his heaters, which could see improvement in 2018 via finding the zone more often. He’s not a wild pitcher, and it’s conceivable he takes a step forward with his command to turn his nibbling heaters into stolen strikes.
