  1. Kyle Tucker 2018 Outlook

    One to two more weeks of struggling and I've gotta drop. And underlying stats in Tucker's favor?
  2. July Closer Thread 2018

    So we talking a better than 50 percent chance Yates is dealt? Picked him up just now. If Yates is dealt hopefully it's not until the day or so prior to the deadline. That way us owners can pick up a few saves prior to releasing.
  3. Dealing Albies

    I've tried with several different combinations built around Albies to get Judge. No dice. Tried another Albies package combo for Harper. Again no dice. Hoping the Benintendi trade is accepted. If you needed Shortstop help would you have been willing to deal Albies for the injured Correa?
  4. Dealing Albies

    Really? Hoskins plus another decent asset? I assumed the long cold stretch hurt Albies' value at least a bit. I just offered Albies for Benintendi straight up. If that's rejected I'd probably be willing to include either David Peralta or Zach Godley as well. Only thing that worries me about Benintendi is being poor versus LHP. So if Boston faces three or more lefty starters in a particular week his value takes a substantial hit. Also while Jose Peraza is hot now his track record isn't exactly significant. So I wouldn't be opposed to a shortstop upgrade. If you were offered Correa for Albies would you accept? Same thing with Benintendi.
  5. Kyle Tucker 2018 Outlook

    I've read Tucker was good against LHP in the minors. So should owners expect him to start versus the majority of lefty pitching the rest of this season?
  6. Dealing Albies

    Albies for Hoskins straight up a fair deal then? Both are young hitters who have gone through long cold stretches. But Hoskins likely is a better threat to hit Home Runs, which is a category I'd like to improve upon. I've been trying my best to built a Judge trade package around Albies. No dice though.
  7. Dealing Albies

    You really think Albies is superior to Rendon? Rendon has been a counting stat stud lately though (and has been that for years). Other than the power surge at the start of the season I'm not sure Albies is much of a threat to hit Home Runs (which is my biggest offensive weakness).
  8. Dealing Albies

    I have no where to play Ozzie Albies, so I'd like to deal him for either rotation or outfield help. If I could deal Albies and a decent secondary piece for Hoskins would that be a fair price to pay? Another person I'm thinking about is George Springer, even though he's slumping. Seems like a good buy low candidate. Any idea what's behind his recent struggles? And has Springer's value dipped so much that it's clearly below Albies'? Thanks.
  9. Carlos Gonzalez 2018 Outlook

    Colorado is in the thick of the WC and Divisional hunt. Plus everyone knows Gonzo is terrible away from Coors. So it's not as if the haul in return would be significant.
  10. Jon Gray 2018 Outlook

    Gray is available in my league but I can't bring myself to own a Rockies pitcher, even if Gray has a fantastic pedigree and upside. Wrong on my part to pass on Gray when I have Guerra and Wheeler on my roster?
  11. Guerra to Fiers

    Considering dropping Junior Guerra for Mike Fiers. The drop decision is based on Guerra's forearm strain and being a bad WHIP bet because of his high walk totals. Is Fiers simply going through a hot stretch and due to come crashing down to earth soon? And isn't a forearm strain often a precursor to an elbow injury? Overall would this be a good transaction to make? Thanks. PS: I could drop Wheeler instead. I just have a hard time getting past the higher upside.
  12. July Closer Thread 2018

    WHOOPS. Considering that this is the Closer thread I should have realized that. Late Saturday night brain fart.
  13. July Closer Thread 2018

    *Edited because of my own stupidity*. Trying to audition for a job with the Mets I suppose
  14. Jesse Winker 2018 Outlook

    Nimmo and Winker do have a fair amount in common in terms of being young lefty hitters with excellent eyes at the plate. For the short term I prefer Winker though, due to the fact he plays in the clearly superior lineup. That lineup will likely continue to present him with far more RBI and run opportunities.
  15. Jake Arrieta 2018 Outlook

    I play in a league with several other Cub fans, so there is some Arrieta nostalgia. Pondering trying to sell high based off this recent solid run. Other than versus the Yankees Arrieta hasn't had a bad start in his last five outings.
