  1. Hey guys, can you help me out a little again? I'm doing quite well currently leading my league but I feel there might be some regression and there are weaknesses in my roster. Here is my current roster: c : realmuto, astudillo 1b: Encarnacion, miggy 2b: altuve, mcneil, jose ramirez 3b: jose ramirez, Matt carpenter (hoping for turnaround) Ss: de jong, correa OF: puig, conforto, mcneil, schwarber, buxton, robles, verdugo Util: ohtani SP: nola, mikolas, bieber, ray, boyd RP: givens, Chapman, pressley, kimbrel (still holding on), Britton, iglesias, rogers I feel I have an over abundance in the IF (league has 2b, ss, 3b and If spot) and OF is not so great. Pen I feel is good, SP not great but Ok. Would you sell high on one of the "overperformers" like de jong, McNeil or boyd? Or make another trade? Release schwarber or matt carpenter for a waiver pickup? Since I'm leading my league by a bit I feel I can wait a little and dont need to sell low on some struggling guys but of course not everyone of them might turn it around. Thanks, dominik
  2. Thanks, not really worried about ramirez yet. Anything else I should consider?
  3. Imo nats should bring him up. Not a great SS but can play there and better bat than difo. As for the service time they still can send him down for two weeks later in the season. Sure he could force the nats to not do that by raking like Soto but that is not super likely and even if it is this is not the end of the world, but more likely at some point he will have a slump that warrants a send down. The nats just can't afford to give up any more ground with the phillies being improved after adding Harper, realmuto and segura and the Mets being better again too.
  4. I like hampsons skill but the Rockies front office is extremely old school (anti sabermetric) and they often cling on to veterans. Would be worried about playing time.
  5. Hey guys, I need your help. I play in a 10 team league with a little strange format. We lost two teams so league captain decided do add more hitting spots to not make as many good players available. We have 1 c , 1b, 2b, SS, 3b but also one 1 IF, 4 OF and two util spots. pitching we have 3 SP, 3 RP and 4 P spots. 6 bench spots. So the league is 10 team but might play more like a 12 team? We have head to head categories: H,R, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG W, L, SV, hld, era, whip, 25 min innings limit Our league also starts next Monday because draft was yesterday due to a severe illness of a league member. Here is my team: c : realmuto 1B: miggy 2b: altuve 3b: Ramirez SS: correa OF: Puig, schwarber, nimmo, conforto Util: encarnacion,Robles IF: senzel (probably up soon if healthy again after all those reds injuries) Bench: Buxton,astudillo,dejong,kang SP: nola, mikolas, ray RP: Chapman, Kimbrel (hope he signs next week), Iglesias P: Pressley, givens, boyd, Lester Bench: Reyes, Skaggs Any tipps? I feel my IF and C is very strong but OF kinda weak. Pen is also strong especially if Kimbrel comes back soon but SP kinda weak. Where would you make moves to improve without sacrificing too much of the strengths? Thanks, Dominik
  6. Definitely not sell him now in a dynasty as you would sell low. Wait for him to bounce back and then sell him if you are scared. Now he could start to decline but at age 30 I don't think he is in free fall yet. Now things like that have happened but I think you need to take your chance here and wait.
  7. I think it is albies. I think stats suggest he got a little lucky with the power and that this will regress some but still even if he is only a 20 HR guy going forward he still probably is going to be a 290+ hitter with some pop and really good speed. Could become a Daniel Murphy with speed which is super good. Bellinger probably is a 35+ HR hitter going forward and he also offers some good obp and even a few steals but I think that his batting average will be more like 260 with his Ks and pull tendency limiting his babip. Now he actually improved his Ks to a good 22% this year but the contact peripherals don't support that improvement, his z-contact is even down 2 ticks, albeit he slight improved both his o swing and o contact. Still I don't see a 22% K rate sticking with a 75% z-con.
  8. Wouldn't do it. Soler is good but I also think he faced a lot of lefties during his hot streak which was always his strength. His value is probably at a peak right now. I don't think he will regress to last year but probably some. Price could drop.
  9. Hey guys, I need some more help. I have schoop coming of the dl and now need to drop a player. It is mixed keeper league with h2h categories (h, r, rbi, hr, avg, bb, sb and w,l, k, whip, sv, hld, era) C: realmuto, barnes 1b: zimmerman, bell, olson 2b: jose Ramirez, adrubal, kingery, schoop Ss:lindor, asdrubal 3b: jose Ramirez, moran Of:hoskins, betts, olson, kingery 2 util, 2 bench Sp: nola, quintana, richards, ryu, luis castillo, mikolas Rp: osuna, madson, reed, hildenberger, devenski, harris, t. Hunter 3 sp, 3 p, 3rp, 3 bench So who would you drop? One of bell and olson? Or kingery (would like to keep him in case he turns it around but would do it if needed). And what to do about osuna? Trade for a closer? Or tank savessaved which wasn't a strength anyway and strengthen holds which I'm good at so far? Im currently in last place although only the first month was bad and my team is coming aroud slowly.
  10. Yes he has pop. Problem has been that he is a ground ball machine, over 50% for his career and so far not getting better either this year. Altuve was a 50% grounder guy too and he improved that to low 40s. If urias can improve that to low to at least mid 40s in the majors I think he can hit 20 homers. Not everyone learns to do that (hosmer so far) but many players slightly do lift the ball more as they get older. Some need a major swing change like JDM but I wouldn't recommend that with him because his swing is already working to hit very well. Would prefer a gradual small adjustment to get him slowly to 42-45% grounders rather than trying a major overhaul and make him a fly ball machine like JDM or Jose Bautista. Now the latter could work but it could also lead to becoming Jason Hayward with his constant tinkering. Imo his hit tool is too good to risk that, just try to use pitch selection and small adjustments to get a few more balls in the air. If he hits 15 that is nice, 20 would be great, anything more is a bonus.
  11. I think it is a bad sign for his attitude and work ethic if he gets discouraged by those things rather than seeing it as a motivation. Other guys have been pissed too by service time manipulations like for example kris Bryant but he responded by mashing and not by crying foul and sucking. I realize his babip is low and his k rate is ok but at 280 his babip also isn't super low and his ISO is currently well below average too. He needs to get over it and start ripping some extra base hits.
  12. Zimmerman was just unlucky, his launch angle and hard hit rate are very good, he has just hit rockets at defenders. He is an injury risk but when healthy he is still good.
  13. jose ramirez? he had a bad start but he is one of the best fantasy players out there and is better than gordon because he gives you good average, 20 steals and on top also 25 homers. gordon is also good because he gives you the steals and a good average but I would prefer jose.
  14. I think first rounder with 5 keepers is definitely OK for him. Don't forget with 5 keepers in a team team league the top50 are already off the board so it is essentially a 5th round pick in a non keeper league. I wouldn't draft verlander top2 rounds in a non keeper of course and in a dynasty getting a younger guy would be nice but he certainly should be worth 50-60 overall.
  15. So rather a starter or double eligible than a reliever? What about the lineup? Is there a category that should be beefed up?
  16. I honestly don't see much in swanson. He isn't bad but he can't do anything special. K/bb isn't terrible but both slightly below average and so is his iso. At 24/6/148 all 3 are below average. Admittedly not by much but still. It is improved but still not good. His hot streak was all babip. Now a shortstop with a 95 or so wrc+ isn't bad but there still isn't a special skill, just modestly decent across the board.
  17. Thank you. So lineup should be good enough for a 12 team? Would you hold on to bell and olson? Which if just one of them. Do I need try trade for an ace? I was trying to focus on relievers due to the low inning limit, but it kills me in Ks and wins, while holds and era were decent. Getting a double eligible pitcher would definitely help. Any other tips?
  18. Underlying numbers of zim are solid. Hard hit, gb% are nice. Ks up some but overall he was getting pretty unlucky, xWOBA is 364 vs wOBA of like 280.
  19. C: realmuto 1b:Zimmerman 2b:kingery (recently cabrera in kingerys slump, when healthy schoop of course) Ss: lindor 3b:jram Of: betts, hoskins, Olson) Util: moran, bell Rest bench
  20. BTW the winner of each category gets a point so it only matters whether you win a cat. not how. we also want to turn this into a keeper league with 6 keepers next year. also is a draft league without a budget, trade and pickups are allowed.
  21. Hi guys, I'm a new fantasy player. I actually have a couple years of reading and also a bit of research experience in sabermetrics but I'm still struggling a little bit getting the finer points of fantasy. here is my team in a 12 team mixed h2h league with: R, H, RBI, SB, HR, BB, AVG and IP (just 10 IP min per week), W, L, SV, HLD, K, ERA, WHIP as categories. I actually lost all 3 of the 4 weeks so far with one tie so it is not starting well. have done well in ERA, WHIP, HLD and BB in hitting and so-so in average, HR,SV, L, did really bad in RBI, R, saves, wins, Ks Here is the team C: realmuto, barnes 1B: Bell, olson, zimmerman (waiver), hoskins 2B: jose ramirez kingery, asdrubal cabrera (waiver pickup), barnes, schoop (DL) SS: lindor, A. cabrera 3B: jose ramirez, moran (waiver), A.cabrera OF: Betts, hoskins, olson, kingery Util (2 spots): see above guys 2 bench spots SP: quintana SP: G. richards SP: nola P: ryu (waivers) P: mikolas (waiver) P: Buehler (waivers, will be dropped again when sent down) RP: osuna RP: madson RP: devenski BN: harris BN: a.Reed BN: T. hunter (waiver) I will bench the excess starters on the days they are not starting (started doing that last week and it helped Ks and wins) and pitch the relievers on those days. what would you do? just ride it out (slow starts by the indians guys and quintana of course did not help)? or make some moves?
  22. bat is definitely ready. are they just waiting for super 2 deadline? or does his glove need some more time? could put him in an OF corner right now but they probably want to develope his glove at 3B. they say he has improved there but probably not quite mlb ready. might be a september callup. his bat will be great, K/BB rate is great and power is also coming. could use a few less balls on the ground but that is really nit picking.
  23. wasn't really his plate discipline but contact. plate discipline got slightly worse but was still very good at 25% O-swing, 12% walks. problem is contact, probably due to batspeed going because of his physical decline and injuries. still not a good outlook. also I don't buy he can play 3B, not with his banged up body.
