  1. 2 for 4, with 2 runs scored today. And a modest 3-game hit streak going. Reason for hope, right?
  2. Clarification. I traded Devers to get Vlad.. TBH.. part of my motivation was buying low on Vlad to flip him once he gets hot. May have outsmarted myself. Time will tell..
  3. Who would you rather have ROS (12 team standard Roto)? One has all the hype, the other all the hate.. I would still go Vlad, but Devers is making a case.
  4. Seems like he really wants your Snell. I would try to downgrade Ozuna to a lesser piece, especially since Archer is on the DL right now. But in terms of value, the Arenado trade is fair.
  5. Turner's value just about quadruples in a NL only 12 teamer. Can single handedly (no pun) win you the category.
  6. Thanks fellas. My question is whether Conforto is a .300 hitter? He seems to have more power than Puig, but Puig gives you more SB's. But if Conforto is a legit .300 hitter, I think that puts him over. One more point though is this may be THE year to own Puig. Fresh team, great park, and most importantly, Free agency. We may never see Puig more motivated than this single season.
  7. Standard 5/5 Roto Sent this trade offer about a week ago. The owner let it sit there and just accepted today. I totally forgot it. What's the damage? I'm giving up Conforto
  8. Drafted him in one league and traded for him in another. In other words, been w/ playing 1 DL spot all season. But if you're still holding, you just have to keep holding, lest someone else reaps the fruit of your patience by snagging him just when he gets back into the lineup. Not to mention, the upside is still huge (though the downside has been ridiculous).
  9. Decided to finally drop Cespedes. Feels good. With Bryant joining the DL and Nelson Cruz now DTD, I don't have enough players to fill a lineup and been running a 2-Man pitching staff for a month. Dropped from 1st to 4th. This is what I get for drafting upside over boring but steady.
  10. Bro, you got it easy. Try this: Current DL: Donaldson Cespedes Strasburg Darvish Archer Syndergaard Day to Day: Kris Bryant Pham I literally haven't had a bench for a month
  11. Bear Claw -- Pretty crazy the guy has allowed a total of 1 Baserunner (a walk) in all of June!! Hoping he cracks 20 saves this season
  12. Do you need saves that bad? Cole has been slumping, but still can finish Top-5 SP ROS. That's worth way more than what you're getting back. I would just wait for the post-deadline musical chair to happen and snatch up an arm or 2.
  13. Always a bit awkward to compare Pitchers to Hitters. But want to get your thought about the following: Thor vs. Springer (Standard Roto) During the preseason, I think many drafted Thor above Springer hoping in the potential to jump into the Big-4. But at this point, most prob have Springer above Thor pretty easily. For a team desperate for SP help, how does the two compare value wise? You can probably guess I'm the one trading for Thor. Springer is great, but he's probably my 4th best Hitter. My SP is awful (Greinke, McCullers, etc..)
  14. I don't believe you will find a single person who actually drafted Stanton this season with a .250/35 expectation. They passed on the top-10 price tag. With that said.. Stanton can hit 50 easily in NY. Just needs to stay healthy.
  15. Your team is stacked. Don't need Blackmon. But yes, that's good value. Would be better if you could replace Kemp w/ a CL. But I'm sure the other owner is trying to sell high there (just as you might be doing w/ Brantley).
