  1. Hey guys, can you help me out a little again? I'm doing quite well currently leading my league but I feel there might be some regression and there are weaknesses in my roster. Here is my current roster: c : realmuto, astudillo 1b: Encarnacion, miggy 2b: altuve, mcneil, jose ramirez 3b: jose ramirez, Matt carpenter (hoping for turnaround) Ss: de jong, correa OF: puig, conforto, mcneil, schwarber, buxton, robles, verdugo Util: ohtani SP: nola, mikolas, bieber, ray, boyd RP: givens, Chapman, pressley, kimbrel (still holding on), Britton, iglesias, rogers I feel I have an over abundance in the IF (league has 2b, ss, 3b and If spot) and OF is not so great. Pen I feel is good, SP not great but Ok. Would you sell high on one of the "overperformers" like de jong, McNeil or boyd? Or make another trade? Release schwarber or matt carpenter for a waiver pickup? Since I'm leading my league by a bit I feel I can wait a little and dont need to sell low on some struggling guys but of course not everyone of them might turn it around. Thanks, dominik
  2. Thanks, not really worried about ramirez yet. Anything else I should consider?
  3. Imo nats should bring him up. Not a great SS but can play there and better bat than difo. As for the service time they still can send him down for two weeks later in the season. Sure he could force the nats to not do that by raking like Soto but that is not super likely and even if it is this is not the end of the world, but more likely at some point he will have a slump that warrants a send down. The nats just can't afford to give up any more ground with the phillies being improved after adding Harper, realmuto and segura and the Mets being better again too.
  4. I like hampsons skill but the Rockies front office is extremely old school (anti sabermetric) and they often cling on to veterans. Would be worried about playing time.
  5. Hey guys, I need your help. I play in a 10 team league with a little strange format. We lost two teams so league captain decided do add more hitting spots to not make as many good players available. We have 1 c , 1b, 2b, SS, 3b but also one 1 IF, 4 OF and two util spots. pitching we have 3 SP, 3 RP and 4 P spots. 6 bench spots. So the league is 10 team but might play more like a 12 team? We have head to head categories: H,R, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG W, L, SV, hld, era, whip, 25 min innings limit Our league also starts next Monday because draft was yesterday due to a severe illness of a league member. Here is my team: c : realmuto 1B: miggy 2b: altuve 3b: Ramirez SS: correa OF: Puig, schwarber, nimmo, conforto Util: encarnacion,Robles IF: senzel (probably up soon if healthy again after all those reds injuries) Bench: Buxton,astudillo,dejong,kang SP: nola, mikolas, ray RP: Chapman, Kimbrel (hope he signs next week), Iglesias P: Pressley, givens, boyd, Lester Bench: Reyes, Skaggs Any tipps? I feel my IF and C is very strong but OF kinda weak. Pen is also strong especially if Kimbrel comes back soon but SP kinda weak. Where would you make moves to improve without sacrificing too much of the strengths? Thanks, Dominik
  6. Definitely not sell him now in a dynasty as you would sell low. Wait for him to bounce back and then sell him if you are scared. Now he could start to decline but at age 30 I don't think he is in free fall yet. Now things like that have happened but I think you need to take your chance here and wait.
  7. I think it is albies. I think stats suggest he got a little lucky with the power and that this will regress some but still even if he is only a 20 HR guy going forward he still probably is going to be a 290+ hitter with some pop and really good speed. Could become a Daniel Murphy with speed which is super good. Bellinger probably is a 35+ HR hitter going forward and he also offers some good obp and even a few steals but I think that his batting average will be more like 260 with his Ks and pull tendency limiting his babip. Now he actually improved his Ks to a good 22% this year but the contact peripherals don't support that improvement, his z-contact is even down 2 ticks, albeit he slight improved both his o swing and o contact. Still I don't see a 22% K rate sticking with a 75% z-con.
  8. Wouldn't do it. Soler is good but I also think he faced a lot of lefties during his hot streak which was always his strength. His value is probably at a peak right now. I don't think he will regress to last year but probably some. Price could drop.
  9. Hey guys, I need some more help. I have schoop coming of the dl and now need to drop a player. It is mixed keeper league with h2h categories (h, r, rbi, hr, avg, bb, sb and w,l, k, whip, sv, hld, era) C: realmuto, barnes 1b: zimmerman, bell, olson 2b: jose Ramirez, adrubal, kingery, schoop Ss:lindor, asdrubal 3b: jose Ramirez, moran Of:hoskins, betts, olson, kingery 2 util, 2 bench Sp: nola, quintana, richards, ryu, luis castillo, mikolas Rp: osuna, madson, reed, hildenberger, devenski, harris, t. Hunter 3 sp, 3 p, 3rp, 3 bench So who would you drop? One of bell and olson? Or kingery (would like to keep him in case he turns it around but would do it if needed). And what to do about osuna? Trade for a closer? Or tank savessaved which wasn't a strength anyway and strengthen holds which I'm good at so far? Im currently in last place although only the first month was bad and my team is coming aroud slowly.
  10. Yes he has pop. Problem has been that he is a ground ball machine, over 50% for his career and so far not getting better either this year. Altuve was a 50% grounder guy too and he improved that to low 40s. If urias can improve that to low to at least mid 40s in the majors I think he can hit 20 homers. Not everyone learns to do that (hosmer so far) but many players slightly do lift the ball more as they get older. Some need a major swing change like JDM but I wouldn't recommend that with him because his swing is already working to hit very well. Would prefer a gradual small adjustment to get him slowly to 42-45% grounders rather than trying a major overhaul and make him a fly ball machine like JDM or Jose Bautista. Now the latter could work but it could also lead to becoming Jason Hayward with his constant tinkering. Imo his hit tool is too good to risk that, just try to use pitch selection and small adjustments to get a few more balls in the air. If he hits 15 that is nice, 20 would be great, anything more is a bonus.
  11. I think it is a bad sign for his attitude and work ethic if he gets discouraged by those things rather than seeing it as a motivation. Other guys have been pissed too by service time manipulations like for example kris Bryant but he responded by mashing and not by crying foul and sucking. I realize his babip is low and his k rate is ok but at 280 his babip also isn't super low and his ISO is currently well below average too. He needs to get over it and start ripping some extra base hits.
  12. Well the Astros have a really good team. He probably would already be better than their 25th roster guy but you don't want a top 10 prospect in baseball to be a 4th outfielder who starts twice a week.
  13. I'm not sure what to expect from him. He is a very good prospect and has good pop but I think his hit tool might not be the greatest (isn't a low K guy, pulls a lot and also not low pop up rates). I could see him becoming a 260 hitter with like 25 homers which isn't all that rare in these days were everyone hits bombs. However I could also see him becoming a 290 hitter with 35 bombs which would be huge. If it is the former he isn't really that much of an asset in shallower leagues. If it is the latter it is great but I wouldn't invest in him yet especially with the roster crunch the Astros have which could delay him further or give him a part time role before he finally gets a starting job maybe in 2020 or so.
  14. Zimmerman was just unlucky, his launch angle and hard hit rate are very good, he has just hit rockets at defenders. He is an injury risk but when healthy he is still good.
