  1. I'd make that trade in a heartbeat. JD could easily be a top 5-10 guy going forward, & Nola is back being who we thought he'd be at the start of the season. I love Mookie, but this is great value. Thanks for your help w mine!
  2. 20-team redraft 5x5 roto. 1400 IP limit. IF: Chirinos (C), Goldschmidt (1B), McMahon (2B), Chapman (3B), Simmons (SS); OF/UT: Dahl, D-Santana, M-Smith (OF), Rizzo, Laureano (UT); BN: Mercado (OF), Wendle (2B/3B/SS/OF) SP: Paddack, C-Smith, Eflin, Gio, Ponce de Leon, Lamet, Woodruff, Heaney RP: Doolittle, Holland, Neris, Robles DL: Glasnow (SP), Taillon (SP) I've been offered Castellanos & Darvish for Domingo & Eflin in a deep 20-teamer. Domingo's been one of my smartest draft picks so far & I'd be sad to see him go, but Darvish is an upgrade over Eflin & my rotation looks pretty shaky w Woodruff out 6 weeks and no set timetable for either Glasnow or Taillon. Castellanos is a nice buy-low right now IMO & could also be moved by the end of the month, which would help his #s a lot... I'd lose a few steals, but I can live with that. What do you think? Thanks for the help! Leave a link.
  3. You'd be selling low on both, but if you're ok with that you should shop Beni. Hard to get much value for Stanton when he's injured and hasn't done much this season, and whatever you get for him you'd be better off keeping him and hoping you get 6 weeks out of him. Trade the healthy guy, and maybe buy low on another underachiever. Help here?
  4. 20-team redraft 5x5 roto. 1400 IP limit. IF: Chirinos (C), Goldschmidt (1B), McMahon (2B), Chapman (3B), Simmons (SS); OF/UT: Dahl, D-Santana, M-Smith (OF), Rizzo, Laureano (UT); BN: Mercado (OF), Wendle (2B/3B/SS/OF), Barreto (2B) SP: Woodruff, Paddack, C-Smith, Eflin, Pivetta, Heaney RP: Doolittle, Holland, Neris, Robles DL: Glasnow (SP), Taillon (SP) I think I'm going to have to drop Barreto (weak half of a platoon) & Pivetta (heading for the pen). There are no decent bats on the wire (& I think I'm covered w Mercado & Wendle on my bench anyway), but there are a few interesting arms & I'm way behind on my innings pitched. So, which 2 do you like of: Ponce deLeon, Turnbull, Lamet, M-Perez, Lauer, Velasquez? I'm leaning Ponce de Leon & either Lamet/Turnbull for upside, but I also feel like my ratios could be headed into the tank. Thoughts? Thanks for the help! Leave a link.
  5. 20-team redraft 5x5 roto. 1400 IP limit. IF: Chirinos (C), Goldschmidt (1B), McMahon (2B), Chapman (3B), Simmons (SS); OF/UT: Dahl, D-Santana, M-Smith (OF), Rizzo, Mercado (UT); BN: Laureano (OF), Wendle (2B/3B/SS/OF), Barreto (2B) SP: Woodruff, Paddack, C-Smith, Eflin, Pivetta, Plesac RP: Doolittle, Holland, Neris, Robles DL: Glasnow (SP), Taillon (SP) 1. Chirinos has been pretty solid all season long, but that BA is starting to dive down a little. Danny Jansen is on fire and for some reason is also on waivers. Should I burn a #10 on him (I don't think he'll clear)? 2. I held onto Plesac a couple starts too long. Anyway, here are my options. SP: Velasquez, Barria (back up soon, right?), F-Peralta; RP: Brasier, May, C-Martin, Brebbia. I'm leaning towards either Brasier, Barria or Freddy Peralta. What do you think? Thanks for the help!

  6. He's looking to buy low on Nola bc he doesn't expect you to sell Castillo so low. I'd hold Aaron---Stripling's going to bounce in and out of the rotation & Mad Bum could end up somewhere where his Ws go up and his ratios get wrecked (like the Yankees, etc.). On the other hand, if you can buy low on Snell by offering up Castillo for Snell & Stripling (or just Snell, a nice buy-low of your own), well, that's something... Help here?
  7. That's a tough one. I'd have to say McNeil, as much as I like him, bc Gennett, if healthy, will give you everything McNeil gives you, only with more power and better counting stats. Help here?
  8. 20-team redraft 5x5 roto. 1400 IP limit. IF: Chirinos (C), Goldschmidt (1B), McMahon (2B), Chapman (3B), Simmons (SS); OF/UT: Dahl, D-Santana, M-Smith (OF), Rizzo (UT), Mercado (UT); BN: Laureano (OF), Wendle (2B/3B/SS/OF), Shaw (1B/2B/3B) SP: Woodruff, Pivetta, Plesac, Eflin, Paddack, C-Smith RP: Doolittle, Holland, Neris, Robles DL: Glasnow (SP), Taillon (SP) So I'm finally going to drop Shaw in a deep league after hanging onto him all season long hoping for a power surge. Yeah, right. Anyway, here's the best options on the wire. Hitters: No one. Seriously. Unless you count Inciarte, Bader, Franco & Clint Frazier (who I dropped a couple days back to grab Glasnow). Pitchers: No SPs (unless you count Freddy Peralta)! RPs: D-Hernandez, Wittgren, Chris Martin, Walden, May, Barnes, McHugh, Brebbia, Stephenson, Biagini As you can guess, I'm leaning towards an RP for ratio help and the occasional vulture save. The problem is, no one's jumping out at me. Who do you like? Thanks for the help! Leave a link.
  9. Meadows by a couple miles for me. I'm always wary of Cs in dynasties bc of the wear & tear and shorter shelf life in general. Plus, Meadows is one of those rare 5-tool hitters. Getting him for Alonso feels like a steal, TBH! Help here?
  10. I definitely wouldn't burn a waiver on Hamels, bc you've got some nice free options there. I'd go Gibson myself (feels like the year he puts it all together), but I also like Lynn, Stroman & ERod. Gibson feels legit, though, & this also looks like it's MIN's year. As for Votto, that's a tough one. I like Avisail and Mazara quite a lot & you need an OF more than a 1B, but if Votto ever turns it around, you'll regret not burning a waiver for him. I'd grab Votto & then trade either Alonso or Voit bc you'll get Tatis back soon and Eloy will start hitting soon at the very least... Help here?
  11. I like them both, but redraft I'm going Senzel too. The Reds aren't looking at the playoffs, & the Phillies will probably make some trades soon so Kingery can't afford any slumps... Help here?
  12. 20-team redraft 5x5 roto. 1400 IP limit. IF: Chirinos (C), Goldschmidt (1B), Shaw (2B), Chapman (3B), Rodgers (SS); OF/UT: Dahl, D-Santana, Frazier (OF), Rizzo (UT), M-Smith (UT); BN: Peraza (2B/SS/OF), Mercado (OF), Laureano (OF) SP: Paddack, C-Smith, Woodruff, Pivetta, Thornton, Eflin RP: Doolittle, Holland, Neris, Robles DL: Simmons (SS), Taillon (SP) So I'm getting a little tired of both Peraza (not stealing much when he plays) & Thornton (nice k/9 but too erratic to trust). Here's the best the wire has to offer: Hitters---M-Gonzalez, McNeil, Tapia, Aguilar SPs---Plesac, DeSclafani, Stripling, Josh James Would you make a switch? If so, who? Thanks for the help!

  13. Whoops! Forgot to include my link!
  14. As long as you're okay with selling low on Nola (I'd personally wait till he puts together a few decent starts---bound to happen soon, it's not like his velocity is down or anything, right?), I'd pull the trigger on #3. I wouldn't want MadBum even if he was to end up on a contender, & as much as I love Hill, in H2H you're just playing russian roulette & hoping he's healthy for the playoffs. Don't like #2 either, esp, since Holland could always get traded. But if you could give up Nola & either Winker or Eaton for Springer (I'd keep Kepler myself---this feels like MIN's year in the central) & Giolito, that feels like a pretty good deal to me. Help here?
  15. 20-team redraft 5x5 roto. 1400 IP limit. IF: Chirinos (C), Goldschmidt (1B), Peraza (2B), Chapman (3B), Rodgers (SS); OF/UT: Dahl, D-Santana, M-Smith (OF), Rizzo (UT), C-Frazier (UT); BN: Simmons (SS), Mercado (OF), Laureano (OF) SP: Paddack, C-Smith, Woodruff, Eflin, Thornton, Pivetta RP: Doolittle, Holland, Neris, Robles DL: Shaw (1B/2B/3B), Taillon (SP) I've been offered Cutch & Montas for my Domingo (Santana) & Eflin. I've been looking to sell high on Eflin (I like him, but can't deal with the low k/9) for a while, & this is the best offer I've gotten. I like Santana as well (enough that I offered Dahl instead; he wants Santana), but I think Montas could be huge this year & that's got me ready to pull the trigger. What do you think? Thanks!
