  1. Drafted him in one league and traded for him in another. In other words, been w/ playing 1 DL spot all season. But if you're still holding, you just have to keep holding, lest someone else reaps the fruit of your patience by snagging him just when he gets back into the lineup. Not to mention, the upside is still huge (though the downside has been ridiculous).
  2. Decided to finally drop Cespedes. Feels good. With Bryant joining the DL and Nelson Cruz now DTD, I don't have enough players to fill a lineup and been running a 2-Man pitching staff for a month. Dropped from 1st to 4th. This is what I get for drafting upside over boring but steady.
  3. Bro, you got it easy. Try this: Current DL: Donaldson Cespedes Strasburg Darvish Archer Syndergaard Day to Day: Kris Bryant Pham I literally haven't had a bench for a month
  4. Bear Claw -- Pretty crazy the guy has allowed a total of 1 Baserunner (a walk) in all of June!! Hoping he cracks 20 saves this season
  5. Do you need saves that bad? Cole has been slumping, but still can finish Top-5 SP ROS. That's worth way more than what you're getting back. I would just wait for the post-deadline musical chair to happen and snatch up an arm or 2.
  6. Always a bit awkward to compare Pitchers to Hitters. But want to get your thought about the following: Thor vs. Springer (Standard Roto) During the preseason, I think many drafted Thor above Springer hoping in the potential to jump into the Big-4. But at this point, most prob have Springer above Thor pretty easily. For a team desperate for SP help, how does the two compare value wise? You can probably guess I'm the one trading for Thor. Springer is great, but he's probably my 4th best Hitter. My SP is awful (Greinke, McCullers, etc..)
  7. I don't believe you will find a single person who actually drafted Stanton this season with a .250/35 expectation. They passed on the top-10 price tag. With that said.. Stanton can hit 50 easily in NY. Just needs to stay healthy.
  8. Your team is stacked. Don't need Blackmon. But yes, that's good value. Would be better if you could replace Kemp w/ a CL. But I'm sure the other owner is trying to sell high there (just as you might be doing w/ Brantley).
  9. I would do it. (assuming redraft) Blackmon's been alright this year so far, but has the absolute potential to blow up and carry your team in ways few others can. You're CL is thin. Full weight falls on Allen. You'll need help. But Viz is far from irreplaceable. Just need to be on the look out for post deadline moves in different CL roles.
  10. Any other thoughts on the trade: Albies/Jansen for KB? Thks!!!
  11. You're trying to trade for Segura at peak value now. If you're truly targeting Segura, I would wait for him to cool off a bit first. He's good, but not .340 good.
  12. I think Albies is better than Odor, who had some more obvious holes. But yes, the upside of KB is easily overlooked. Another factor. Schoops (2B) is a FA.
  13. Somewhat big turn of events. Final deal went as follows: I Give: Albies, K. Jansen I Get: Kris Bryant A lot to give up, but I think I like the deal valuewise. I'm lower on albies than most. Jansen could be a beast, but as of now, still just a CL. let me know what you think. Thks!!
  14. KB's injury happened at the end of April. He hit 6 of his Hr's (8 total) in the first 2 weeks of May. Don't think Concussion is causing this. If anything, this doesn't go back to the injury, it goes back to 2016, which was the last time he was performing to expectation. At this point, we're just trying to figure out who KB actually is. Is he more 2016 or 2017? Unfortunately, looking like 2016 is the outlier now.
  15. Hasn't hit a HR in a month (May 14). Is he going to crack 20 this year? What's going on?
