trying to trade for Lux at the moment in a 16 team dynasty forever keeper.

offered R Lewis and Sixto for Lux...you think it's enough?

Not enough context - in a vacuum it's fair, but it all depends on the other team's situation at SS/SP (and 2B given the potential loss of Lux) and whether or not that manager still believes in Royce (he's obviously a tough sell right now). Also, given that Lux will likely make his debut much sooner than Lewis/Sixto, it may also depend on the other manager's playoff window of contention.

But sure, in a vacuum the offer is fair.

I agree that you need to provide more information about the league, but I would say that is not enough to pry Lux away. It isn't a bad offer so I would make it and see what happens. I just wouldn't expect it to get accepted.

I'm in a 5x5 redraft. OBP.

We have deep rosters and deep benches. 12 teams, but stashing Bo and Yordan helped my team a ton...is it time to stash Lux? I had a post in the main bc forum but just saw this thread and thought I'd ask it here.

 

C Carson Kelly*
1B Jose Abreu
2B Ozzie Albies
3B Matt Chapman
SS Trea Turner
CI Daniel Vogelbach
MI Bo Bichette
OF Yordan Alvarez
OF George Springer
OF Andrew Benintendi
OF Ronald Acuna Jr.
OF Shin-Soo Choo
UTL Scott Kingery

BN Renato Nunez, Garrett Cooper, Jose Osuna
IL Willson Contreras*, David Dahl

 

I know my offense is stacked, and Lux would be my new utility man with Kingery filling in (daily lineups) where needed (he's eligible at 3b, ss, and of in fantrax) so long as Lux hit the ground running. I could see Lux forcing the Dodgers' hands before September... also, never know when an injury may strike, so having that extra ammo stored away could help...esp. when I have a guy made of glass like Turner at SS.

Thoughts?

If you make this more concise you have a better chance of getting an answer. Who you are keeping doesn't matter. Clearly list the players you are struggling with as keepers and tell us how many you need to keep. Saying you need to cut some and keep some doesn't help us. Also, do not make an individual thread and post this type of stuff in this topic moving forward. Thanks!

My apologies.  Just joined last night, still getting used to posting in particular threads.  I couldn’t find an appropriate post to reply to that seemed right, so I made a new topic. 

 

Sorry about the “too much” info, I tend to over explain things in the hope that context helps with more informed responses! 

Where/how should I post this (in a more concise post)? 

Thanks!

No problem. I moved your post to the MILB Bench Coach Thread, which is where we are posting now. Just post a clear question and hopefully you will get some advice. Don't post about who you are keeping because it doesn't really matter. Give a list of the prospects you are deciding between and how many you need to keep. You are also in a very deep league so I wouldn't expect there to be a wide audience for your question. Not many people are going to be able to help or care to help with a league that has 85 man rosters. I recommend searching the forum for some of the prospects on your bubble and see if any of them have a thread. I would also read up on the deep sleepers thread.

i probably would... it's 50/50 at best (IMO) that the dodgers call him up, but i'd probably rather have lux on my bench than osuna. osuna's getting run with pirates right now, but i think he's playing over his head and likely won't continue to produce fantasy worthy stats. who knows tho, juiced ball.. 

that being said, in the event an injury occurs, osuna provides PAs where lux may be useless.

Have a question for the pitching gurus.  I apologize as it is pretty broad, but just looking for some general input.

Looking to add one more arm to my farm to monitor until the beginning of next season when we have to consolidate rosters.  Which one of this group would you take a lotto ticket on?

Michael Grove

Dean Kremer

Adam Kloffenstein

I'd go Kloff personally - best combination of frame/arsenal/bulldog mentality. All three are intriguing, but barring a trade Grove seems light years away from an MLB rotation (certainly in LA) and as for Kremer, while he probably has the best name recognition of the trio, O's SP prospects in general haven't panned out much in recent years and the slider/change-up have a long way to go to give him a true 3-4 pitch arsenal. Good luck!

EDIT - if you're looking for proximity though, it would have to go to Kremer, who might get a September call up and has a chance at a rotation spot at some point in 2020.

Thanks!  Other names who are intriguing include Denaburg, Akin, Holloway and Antoine Kelly but the three I posted interested me the most.

Anyone got a good source for news on September call-ups or is it just the usual twitter beat writers?  The boards have slowed down to a crawl so I'm not as confident in the call-up thread as I am early in the year.  

I got my eye on Tucker and Lux in particular as potential impact call ups.

Lux is who I've eyed, but Tucker's another good one.

love the idea of this thread living here.

I was offered an interesting trade in a 20-team dynasty. My team weaknesses are 1B and SP - I suppose it's easiest to just view this trade in a nutshell:

I receive: Deivi Garcia + FYPD pick 1.10
I give: Evan White

 

I finished 3rd last year and I'm going for it all in 2020. 

General thoughts:

Deivi Garcia has effortless velo and a sick bender. I am super high on him, and the 1.10 pick sweetens the offer. I can see him evolving into a Luis Castillo type of pitcher, or an electric bullpen arm. That said, I'm a bit reluctant to give up a pitching prospect for a position prospect. 

I scouted Evan White at Kentucky and picked him in our inaugural dynasty draft. I'm a bit attached, and I've enjoyed seeing his development and seeing him prove that he can, indeed, adjust to wooden bats. I'd imagine the contract will only accelerate his big league arrival. 

Any help would be delightful. Thanks, y'all.

if u playing for this year keep Evan White. Signing that 6 year deal locks him into a starting role very soon like Apr 1 type soon. Deivi is looking like a reliever more and more which uselessfies him in fantasy. That draft pick is interesting though if u don't think u can win this year since White at 24 prolly has maxxed out his tools and skillset.

I have to drop 5 of these 8 guys prior to the first year player draft in a 16 team dynasty league with approximately 150-175 minor leaguers owned. I’m in full rebuild mode and leaning towards keeping Arias, Garcia and Miguel Vargas.

 

Anyone below you would strongly keep over those three?

 

Brice Turang

Miguel Vargas

Gilbert Arias

Alexander Vargas

Jose Garcia 

Daz Cameron 

Jose DeLeon

Hans Crouse

I agree with @hailfire4 that if you're looking to compete for a title in the near term and have 1B as a positional weakness, stick with Evan White, who is far more likely to provide a meaningful contribution in 2020. Garcia obviously has an electric arm, but is definitely nowhere near guaranteed to be in line for a rotation spot (in 2020 let alone long term), nor is pick #10 in a FYPD likely to help you in 2020 either. Seattle obviously has big plans for White and it's a great fit for your squad on an otherwise competitive team.

In a vacuum I can see why the Garcia side would excite you more, but from a practical standpoint I believe standing pat is the right call. Now, perhaps you can use another area of strength/depth on your roster to trade for another 1B option that can help you win now, in which case you can turn around and flip White for that package and feel better about it. Always lots of options in a dynasty league. Good luck!

It's a completely different organization now. Elias is only in year 2 of his overhaul.  They have done a good job at improving several players change ups last year. (Bundy, Cashner, Means). They very much a focus on secondary pitches philosophy.

I hope you're right - I would still love to see some tangible results with highly touted O's SP prospects having success early in their careers. Obviously Bundy/Cashner/Means are far from rookie/second year status. Once SP's like Rodriguez/Hall/Kremer/Baumann/etc. start exhibiting success early in their stints at the MLB level I'll start feeling better about wanting the organizations pitching prospects on my dynasty teams. Playing in the perennial AL East powerhouse division certainly doesn't add to the incentive.
