  1. I would explore the trade route. And if you can't, I would probably keep Upton and Davis...and if you don't want to keep two outfielders on top of what you already have, it would be between Lamb and Hill (with one of the outfielders). I just worry about Hill's health. Unless you are really high on Stroman, he should be available to draft somewhere in your first couple picks. I know Upton gets a knock in OPS leagues (Davis is probably better all things considered), but in a league where 120 players are kept...it's difficult to throw back a guy that ranks probably in the top-80. Probably rank them like this: Davis Upton Hill Lamb Contreras Stroman
  2. Any way you could pair some of those hitters together for a better hitter? A few of those hitters are pretty close together for me, especially in an OPS league. I would think that someone like Upton paired with a Davis or Piscotty should be able to get you a definitive keeper.
  3. What does your team currently look like?
  4. Could you provide a little bit more about your league (roster size, how many teams, scoring format) and your team?
  5. He felt some tenderness after his bullpen session last Wednesday. He has since played catch (last Thursday) and threw 21 pitches off the mound (Sunday). And he reported no issues with his arm today. His next session is scheduled for Wednesday.
  6. I like Dickerson, but not sure that I see him as a high upside guy. He has the chance to provide great value with where he is being drafted though. I see him more as a 20 HR/8-10 SB type of guy, with full time at bats (which I don't think he will get). But I can easily see him getting 400-450 at bats, with the potential for more if there is an injury. I'm not sure that I see him as a 15+ SB guy though, there is nothing in his minor league track record to suggest it. Last time he stole more than 5 in a season, was 2013. But San Diego is willing to give the green light often. I do think that Dickerson has more potential in the average department than the .257 he hit last season. Projections: 425 PAs 14 HRs 6 SBs 110 RBIs+Runs .275 Average Not that sexy outside of deeper mixed or NL-Only leagues, but definitely someone that you should keep an eye on.
  7. I am trying to acquire keeper pitching in my NL-Only Keeper 5x5 league. Auction draft, Keep 15, $260 draft cap. Offer on the table: My: Jung Ho Kang - $1 (contract expires after 2017, unless extended) Jedd Gyorko - $3 (contract expires after 2018) for His: Justin Turner - $1 (contract expires after 2017, unless extended) Robbie Ray - $1 (contract expires after 2018) It would seem like a no brainer for me, since I believe Turner is the best player in this deal and Ray addresses some of my pitching issues (team listed below). But I have been out of the game (on here at least, for a while) and just want to know other people's opinions. Thanks for any input you provide and I will help in return, just leave a link. Keepers: C - C - 1B - 2B - Ryan Schimpf - $2 3B - Jung Ho Kang - $1 SS - Jedd Gyorko - $3 CI - Anthony Rendon - $14 MI - Dansby Swanson - $4 OF - Yaisel Puig - $11 OF - Kyle Schwarber - $4 OF - Trea Turner - $4 OF - Christian Yelich - $14 OF - UT - P - Jake Arrieta - $10 P - Brandon Maurer - $8 P - AJ Ramos - $4 P P P P P P Possible other keepers: Almora ($1), Luke Weaver ($6), Kyle Barraclough ($2) Daniel Hudson ($2)
  8. Started in Center Field last night, the versatility can only help speed up his arrival.
  9. Anything is possible. If Peterson had continued to struggle and kept losing playing time to Gosselin and Callaspo, then I would say definitely. But Peterson has been doing a decent job over the last ten games. It makes sense for them to give him an extended look and make sure that he's not an answer anywhere. I would say that Peraza comes up some time in June.
  10. He currently is sporting an BABIP of .351. His career rate is .278 and there is nothing in his batting profile to suggest that there is a skill change here to sport it. I think last year was a down year for him and I think he can get back to around 15 HRs and a batting average of around .250. Ride him while he's hot...but extremely unlikely he keeps it up
  11. yanks are willing to give up gary sanchez their big catching prospect, i wouldnt be surprised if it happened... If I'm the Braves, I would want more than Gary Sanchez. I know he has been young for his level coming up, but the numbers are somewhat underwhelming and there are real concerns about his future as a catcher. Considering that the Braves couldn't move him to First, it seems unlikely.
  12. I haven't actually seen him play...so this may be way off. But from reading reports about him, I think of Jay Buhner for some reason. Am I just completely off on that?
  13. I doubt Rosario steals many at bats from him considering Rosario's defense is horrible.
  14. I'm sure you are looking for the Javier Baez thread. Buxton and Wood have nothing in common outside of being top prospects at one time or another.
  15. Rube Baker Alert! Maybe he needs to start looking at Playboy (for the articles). In all seriousness though, I hope it's just a minor blip for him.
