  1. Thanks for the feedback! I’m 2nd overall so trying to win. Are people confident Scherzer is Scherzer in 2019? Suffering in steals and saves ages but picking up Mad Max might let me move another pitcher for help there
  2. I have both and I prefer Buttrey as there is less competition (Robles? Lol) vs Jeffress who has Hader thanks for your feedback on my offer!
  3. Quintana over Yu. Yu looks lost and messed up. Thanks for replying to my question
  4. I think this is a no brainer - Correa. We don’t even know if Whitley can pitch at the MLB level. Hitters are safer than pitchers on health (yes even with CC’s past). CC is still so young. Get Correa! Good luck! PS - thoughts on my offer??
  5. Chase the upside of Sorotka! We know what DeScalfani is. Sorotka could be this years walker buehler! Good luck! PS - thoughts on this trade?
  6. I would bench sorotka and happ. Start corbin and then Marquez! good luck! PS - thoughts on this? -
  7. I would drop Yordan alvarez since this is not a keeper league for Max Muncy i would stand pat with Ramos. Phegley had the game of his life yesterday- don’t chase that. Ramos will be better over the season than alfaro good luck! PS - thoughts on this??
  8. It should be enough. Cutch doesn’t have a ton of value in your format and you can find people on the wire who can mimic his performance. good luck! PS - thoughts on this offer?
  9. Hi folks I'm in a 12 team, 5 x 5 roto (we use OBP instead of Avg), 6 player keeper league. We use an auction draft system.  I have Tatis who will cost $6 to keep in 2020 I currently have no closers so desperately need to pick up saves (I'm 11th in that category with 5 saves total. Jeffress, Buttrey, Pagan ain’t good. I was offered Max Scherzer and Will Smith for Fernando Tatis Jr. Its a crazy offer. I love Tatis but I also have Trea Turner as a keeper (Turner will cost me $20 in 2020). Tatis started strong but is only 20 and I figured pitchers might catch up with him this year. Scherzer will cost $64 in 2020 so obviously just a rental. He’s started slow but this deal could net me a top 3 pitcher to go with a murderers row of pitchers - Scherzer, Bauer, Thor, Strasburg, Paddack with Chirinos as a SP6. What would you do? Because this is a keeper I’m worried I’m trading a potential Trout or Mookie for a 34 year old fading pitching star? The bonus is I get a solid closer. (The other team has Holland, Alvarado too). Let me know what you think? Post your question link here and I'll reply. My team is below! Thanks T  C - G Sanchez 1B - F Freeman 2B - M. Moustakas 3B - M Carpenter SS - K Marte MI - M Carpenter CI - Y. Diaz OF (4) - JD Martinez, Khris Davis, R Braun, Joc Pederson DH - C. Walker  Bench: C Kieboom, Danny Santana IL - Trea Turner, F Tatis Jr P (8) - T. Bauer, Thor, Strasburg, Paddack, S Gray, J Jeffress, T Buttrey, E Pagan B: Y Chirinos, Aaron Sanchez, 
  10. Hi folks I'm in a 12 team, 5 x 5 roto (we use OBP instead of Avg), 6 player keeper league. We use an auction draft system. I have Tatis who will cost $6 to keep in 2020 and Chris Paddack who will cost me $8 in 2020. We have a $260 budget that is deducted based on the price of our keepers. I currently have no closers so desperately need to pick up saves (I'm 11th in that category with 5 saves total. ugh). I have been offered guys who I wouldn't keep due to their price - Max Scherzer, Kris Bryant, and a closer (either Alvarado, Will Smith, or Greg Holland) for Tatis Jr and Paddack It seems like a no brainer on the surface to say yes but Bryant seems to have no power left in that shoulder and closers are closers. I'm 3rd overall and it's only May 3rd. I have a pretty great group of players. I also could keep both Tatis and Paddack to pair with other keepers Trea Turner, Trevor Bauer, JD Martinez etc. Or is this a real no brainer - take Scherzer, Bryant and a closer and run? I'm pretty stocked at Starting Pitching - Bauer, Thor, Strasburg, Paddack as a core 4. Scherzer is a major upgrade over Paddack but unlike Paddack - I cant keep Max due to his price ($59 for 2020) Let me know what you think? Post your question link here and I'll reply.

  11. Gosh I dont know. I dont like this deal for you. I think you're giving up too much. Arenado is a better fantasy player than Judge. Khris Davis gives you 40+ homers every year. The same as Judge will give you. Tatis in a keeper could be moved later on for a bigger part. So even if you dont plan to keep Tatis - his value increases every home run and steal. It's close but given pitchers get injured more often I would stand pat. See if you can get Bauer for Davis & Tatis? Good luck! T PS - help with this?
  12. I would move Polanco for Musgrove. Musgrove is looking pretty great. That Pittsburgh pitching has a great impact on these players. Good luck! T PS - help with this? -
  13. If Khris qualifies for OF in your league then I would take KD and Inciarte side. I dont like the platoon Renfrow is in. Although the best player in the deal is Benny .....nobody hits homers like Khris Davis
  14. I wouldn't drop Buxton, Winkler or Peacock for Polanco. Maybe Winkler for Senzel mind you. I'm high on Senzel. I think your instincts are right re Senzel and what will happen to the Reds lineup. Good luck! T PS - help with this? -
