    I hold. Mostly because I am high on Gleyber and Senzel but also because Ramirez’s slump is longer than this season. Hard to not be the least bit concerned that he may have been figured out

    That’s one of the reasons I’m hesitant. Before the draft I offered Realmuto and Torres for J-Ram and he accepted but changed his mind last minute and that was okay. Now he comes to me with this deal after the slump.

    What is the rest of your team like & do you keep everyone on your team or a certain #?

    We keep 5. My team is:









    J. Turner


    DL - Stanton, Hicks, Eloy

    NA - Rodgers





    S. Gray






    DL - Severino

  3. This is a 10-team H2H categories keeper league, keeping players at round drafted/previously kept +1 round.

    I was offered Jose Ramirez (17th) for my Gleyber Torres (19th) and Nick Senzel (22nd). Should I take the deal? I have to, right?

    Thank you in advance for your help! WHIR

  4. Gary Sanchez and it's not even close. Gallo kills you in BA and Sanchez will top 2 at his position after a bad-luck year, and while he may hit maybe 5-10 fewer homers than Gallo, he won't kill your BA and he plays a premium position. El Gary all the way.


  5. Adalberto Mondesi. The price is too high for a guy who strikes out 27% of the time with a paltry 4% walk rate. Yes, massive upside, but totally unproven with poor underlying numbers. To pay 4th or 5th round for that is too expensive. 9th or 10th, I think I'd take the risk, but not 4 or 5 where I can get a proven commodity.

    Keep Seager/Mondesi, counter then move Sale & Cole for Hoskins plus draft pick. Then keep the Philly in one of those spots, and another stick ya own in the other one. 

    I know you love hitters, but getting rid of Sale/Cole for Hoskins is a bad trade. If you're going to troll like that at least read the post and suggest I should trade those two for Goldy lol.

  7. 14-team 6x6 keeper league. You can keep between 4 and 6 players, and they take up your first 4-6 picks. I won this league last year and have a ton of keepers that I'm looking to deal for picks or upgraded keeper talent.

    Here are my possible keepers (definitely keeping the ones in bold):

    JD Martinez, Altuve, Marte, Sale, Cole, Suarez, Seager, Mondesi, Marquez, Cano, Leclerc


    I've been offered Rhys Hoskins/14th round pick for my Corey Seager/Adalberto Mondesi.

    Why am I balking at this deal? I'm not going to keep Mondesi, and really the last spot for a keeper is between Seager & Suarez, so essentially this deal is Seager/Mondesi/Suarez for Hoskins/14th round. Not sure that's worth it. Regardless, I can't keep both Seager & Suarez anyway so I might as well get something back, no? What do you think?


    Btw, the guy also has Goldy. Thinking I could counter for him?

    Sometimes people fall in love with their players. 

    You’re right, you’re right. I do have some bias as a fan and both Gleyber and Realmuto helped me win the league last year so parting ways with them is just a little more difficult. But you’re correct, I should step back and look strictly at numbers.

  9. @secretagentman Torres has 2B/SS eligibility in my league, and J-Ram has 2B/3B. But you and @smurph are both saying that it makes sense to make the move because we're likely a few years away from peak Gleyber?  Even with the 4 year keeper term, still worth it?


    And is Realmuto really not worth keeping? I know he's a catcher, but in the 13th round, .275-ish, 25+ homers, 80+ RBI out of the catcher spot has to be worth something, especially since he's being over-drafted in the 5th, no?

  10. If those are your other 3, I'm leaning Marte to give you more speed. You're talking a difference of about 8-10 homers between the two, but Marte will steal 20-30 more bases than Rizzo. You can more easily make up that homer difference than stolen bases.
