  1. Moves that made or broke you this year?

    Well in my first year back after a five year break I won 2nd place in a 16 team redraft. Draft picks that paid off big: Morton at 211, Simmons at 206, Edwards Jr at 302, Castellanos at 115. Key FA pickups: Chapman, Nimmo, McNeil, W Smith, J Hicks. Trades I made: 4/10 - sent Allen and Pujols for Marwin and Peacock 5/12 - sent Goldy, T Anderson, Peacock for Altuve and Treinen 5/29 - sent Cespedes and Newcomb for Moustakas and C Anderson 6/26 - sent Moustakas and Moreland for Lindor and Healy So I basically dealt: Allen, Pujols, Goldy, T Anderson, Cespedes, Newcomb, and Moreland for Lindor, Altuve, Treinen, C Anderson, and Healy I feel pretty good about the season and I owe a lot of my success to this board. Thanks all!

    I'm not seeing this. As far as I can tell he's at home against SD tonight; you mean he won't pitch this game?

    Last 14 days (aka fantasy playoffs): .293 AVG, .423 OBP, 3 HR, 12 RBI, 7 R, 11:10 K:BB.

    He did this on purpose, waiting until fantasy playoffs to get real.

    If I'm NYY I am not confident in facing OAK, especially in New York. Sure you get to throw Severino but... Oakland is a bullpen killing, on the road hitting, late season machine right now. The question is: who does OAK start? Fiers? *whispers* Edwin Jackson? *shudders*

    Probably a long shot to vulture a save or two but who knows, what with the way this year has gone, Chris Devenski was just activated from the DL in HOU.

    He's been batting leadoff for the past three games. 3 BB to 4 K in 28 ABs so far this year. He could be in line for a nice and clean end of the season run.

    Hicks qualifies at SP and I have limited confidence in Norris' health. I'd say he's got the least obstacles in front of him out of that list.

    Neshek quietly converts 3rd save in 15 IP this season. Also has 3 HLDs and a 0.60 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in this short time. I like him down the stretch in SV/HLD leagues.

    I need to know what our opinion is on Maeda closing now that he's officially been moved to the pen. My situation is that I don't need a part-time closer/mid-RP and he's taking up a bench spot. If he's gonna close then that's cool, but if he's gonna be in a once a week throwing two innings kinda setup then I need to bail. Any thoughts on his outlook?

    "Yeah my guy blew it big time. But if things had hypothetically been different, he might have not done that." ^ This isn't an argument. It can be applied to literally every situation in life.

    Just a friendly reminder that Pat Neshek is back. He's thrown 12.1 innings since mid July and has been lights out, allowing 1 ER, with 1 BB to 9 K. The strikeouts have been excellent in past years and may come with a bit more work, but he's logged 2 SVs and 3 HLDs in this span. That means he's seeing a lot of high leverage situations and converting well. I see him as a must-add in HLDs league or SV+HLDs leagues.

    This is getting silly. Peeps gonna be like: did you see how loose Rondon's laces were on his cleats? Osuna had nice tight laces, def should be closing. Yeah but Osuna doesn't eat red meat, so his iron count is lower. Probably won't be closing this year till he irons that out (*cough*).
