  1. A.J. Reed informed Sports 10 that he's retiring from baseball. The Terre Haute native spent part of four seasons in the MLB with the Astros and White Sox. In 62 career games, he hit four homers and had 12 RBI. Reed was taken 42nd overall by the Astros in the 2014 MLB Draft after an incredible career at Terre Haute South and Kentucky. Reed's 42nd selection is the second highest draft pick for a Terre Haute Native, trailing only Josh Phegley who went 38th overall in 2009. My worst MiLB draft pick ever!! I fell for the hype i wish him luck in the future
  2. 16 team dynasty: Wilson Ramos has a pretty high salary in my league. I’m not sure the production Is worth that much but there isn’t a lot out there. Would you drop him/try to trade him and snag Danny Jansen? Jansen will likely be in a timeshare with McGuire but Jansen has been hitting well this spring.
  3. 16 team dynasty: which SP do you like the best?? Dylan Bundy or Josh James I may have a shot at Urquidy but was out bid and can only get him if the highest bidder doesn’t sign him. I could sign Eovaldi or Montgomery but I think Bundy and James have higher upside.
  4. 16 team dynasty I have 1-2 openings to sign a SP from free agency. How do you rank these SPs? Urquidy, Josh James, Bundy, Eovaldi, Montgomery, Taijuan Walker I could also drop Caleb Smith to sign one of these guys. Should i just stick with 1 or try for 2 and drop Caleb?
  5. i know It’s spring training but Myers is hitting well. He has 3 homers so far this spring and is hitting .313/.389. I glanced at the box scores quickly and think he has struck out 3-4 times in 6 games.
  6. 16 team dynasty - 5 bench spots im pretty sure I know the answer to this but do you think it’s safe to drop Wil Myers in a dynasty league? we have guaranteed contracts and His salary is guaranteed. That means if I hold him this year I cannot drop him Once the season starts. We only have 5 bench spots so if he struggles like last year and doesn’t play much I’ll have him eating up a roster spot all year, unless I trade him. I like his HR & SB potential but I think it’s really risky to hold him. what do you think?
  7. I like DG but I have to agree with you. At AAA last year he had a 5.40 ERA and a WHIP around 1.5 he’s young and he has talent but I can’t see the Yankees throwing him out there when you consider his age and struggles towards the end of last season.
  8. I won’t cut Lowe but I worry about the strikeouts. I may be wrong but I think he was in the 30% range last year. I hope he can fix that. I agree Walker is probably my first cut but does cutting/trading Caleb Smith hurt my pitching? I have Rodon on IR. My 4 starting pitchers are DeGrom, Sale, Bieber and Buehler. If Carlos Martinez doesn’t win a starting job I will have no backups.
  9. We have a 10 max minor league system. You can bring a player up whenever you want even if they have been in the majors awhile. We don’t have a lot of bench spots (5) so it’s nice that I didn’t have to bring up Profar and Buxton since they have been hurt/inconsistent. You can not move them on and off. Once you bring someone up he is permanently on my active roster. thanks for the advice
  10. Here is my sig: 16 team dynasty Roto 5x5 C - Ramos 1st - Voit 2nd - Albies SS - Story 3rd - Arenado OF - Merrifield, Dahl , Benintendi U - Khrush Davis , Ozuna Bench - Moose, Myers , Brandon Lowe , Mike Yaz SP - Sale, DeGrom, , Buehler , Bieber, Caleb Smith , Taijuan Walker, CMart MINORS (10 max) - Albies, Buxton, Profar, Tapia, Jo Adell, Carter Kieboom, Grant Lavigne, Xavier Edwards, AJ Reed
  11. I am over the max amount of players on my active roster since players returned from the DL throughout the offseason. Which players would you drop? another option is trading 1-2 players to snag another pick in this years draft to take Luis Matos. here are my options: Mike Yaz Wil Myers Brandon Lowe Taijuan Walker Caleb Smith **** I will post my Sig in the next post****
  12. Thanks pal! I think I’m going with Martinez but may try to slide back into the draft (only 4 picks left) to snag Matos or maybe Bracho
