  1. Ian Kinsler to replace Daniel Murphy. He's hitting at the top of a pretty good lineup and is off to a decent start.
  2. If anything it will make the closer more of a thing. You can't play matchups so easily with a 3 batter minimum.
  3. Ryan Zimmerman needs a lot of days off to stay off the IL. I think it's more likely that Dozier slides over to 1B at times than sits frequently.
  4. Where? Boston? I'd guess Atlanta would be more likely to pay up than Milwaukee. Waiting too long can't be increasing teams' confidence after the Holland disaster last year. I know Kimbrel is a lot better than that... But still a reliever...
  5. I love McCutchen at his draft value this year. In that park and at the top of the lineup is going to be huge for points leagues.
  6. I'm in. I love this flyer because we will probably know early on if he's going to stick. The Astros have so many other options that if he starts out slow he will probably lose out to another player who needs the opportunity, especially if Brantley and Reddick can stay healthy.
  7. Bird has options too... I dont see how Voit isn't the opening day guy
  8. I'm looking for a Dynasty Startup with an auction style startup draft and no IDP or Salary cap/contracts. Under 150 dollar buy in would be good too. I prefer full dynasty with 20+ man rosters. MFL and some form of 2 QB starting rosters would be preferred. Would love something like QRRWWWTSF. Hit me up if you are filling a startup like this.
  9. Is it still open and do you have any more details? I'm not that familiar with sleeper so I'm not sure if I can see the settings and bylaws without joining the league.
  10. No, they should trade him for prospects before his effectiveness fluctuates next year or the year after, as RPs are very prone to. That contract could suddenly look a lot different for the Padres in a year. Asking for an elite prospect who is already in the majors is a non starter for almost all teams so I don't see them getting anyone on the level of Devers. Boston could get a comparable pitcher for cheaper prospect cost with a higher salary or get an elite starter like degrom if they want to move Devers.
  11. I don't think the Sox thought they were giving up a player anywhere near as talented as Devers is in any of those deals. Shaw was a mistake in hindsight, but he was a 27 year old who they thought was a AAAA platoon guy. Devers is only 21 and reached the majors at 20. The Gagne and Elias prospects never became anything unless I am forgetting something. The Red Sox have actually been smart about their prospect trades over the years. Basically if the Sox are offering a prospect, you should just back away because something is wrong with him. The only prospects I can remember them trading who were actually good were Hanley and Moncada, and they got Beckett and Sale out of those deals. The Padres are overplaying their Hand here. Relievers are the most replaceable players in baseball, and their long term success is almost always a big gamble aside from a few elite guys.
