Oh no, I feel my alter ego B. Fire coming on for Bryan Reynolds, The Rap:
Fantasy Master Lothario, don’t abbreviate,
Don’t flip giant index cards like INXS that rhyme with hate, procreate or Kate…
& Allie! Like, oh my God, gag me with the spoon,
Valley! That Indian Pirates pitcher’s name wasn’t Rajneeshpuram Commune,
Ma Anand Sheela! With rhymes on both sides of the comma,
Tequila! Pee-Wee Herman knocking bikes over, oh, the trauma,
Center? Nah, Bryan Reynolds is a left fielder on the Pirates who’s been hitting for the last few weeks. There’s a chance he flames out, but Reynolds did have five homers in only 13 games of Triple-A, then was promoted and began to do the exact same thing in the majors. It’s not surprising with the two leagues sharing balls. By the way, this might be the wackiest early storyline. Because Triple-A is using the same balls it doesn’t mean a ton because there are different pitchers in the minors.
Bunch of whiners!
*rubs towel on sweaty forehead* Thank you, thank you. For my next song, we have a special guest…Lastings Milledge! Okay, okay, Lastings, you don’t have to high-five everyone in the audience. Any hoo! Reynolds has been hitting near-.350 across two levels (Triple-A and majors) and has 10 homers in only 54 games. He’s a definite buy. Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:
Jorge Alfaro – Mitch Garver, Josh Phegley, Christian Vazquez. That’s the order. Jorge hits ’em Alllll faaaaaaaar-o; Mitch doesn’t kill anyone’s vibe; grab Phegley and cough up a loogie of stats; Vazquez is a marching onward Christian soldier of stats. Random Commenter, “No love for Pedro Severino?” Screams for five hours, then…I guess he’s okay.
Howie Kendrick – Howie like me now?! “I don’t really know you.” Ah, cool, cool, thanks, Howie, over here deflating me like a far-too-relatistic porcupine balloon animal.
Niko Goodrum – Fun fact! Niko Goodrum is also what Andy Warhol used to call his homemade label for Bacardi.
Luis Urias – I’ve been spending a lot of time with a voodoo priestess, trying to put a hex on Ian Kinsler. So far, it’s been for naught, but as Chandelier Bougie tells me, “You can’t make an omelette without breaking some hex.”
David Bote – As Lonely Island names their fantasy teams, “I’m on a Bote!”
Luis Rengifo – This is funny (not funny). Rengifo has been hitting almost exclusively in the nine hole, has only 83 ABs, and has 15 runs. That would give him roughly 90 runs on the year. That is an insane amount of runs for a nine-hole hitter. Know why he’s doing so well for runs? Maris/Mantle–Excuse me, La Stella/Fletcher.
Renato Nunez – Has been hot for almost a month now, having the most homers in the league since May 15th. Also, if you own Bote, technically, you’re already in a Renato.
Miguel Sano – Be surprised if Sano doesn’t go south at some point, but he still does have 35+ homer power. Will we ever see that power? Your guess = mine.
Kyle Seager – He’s not as good as his brother, Corey, but, for his price, I like Kyle better, i.e., off waivers is a better price than a top five round schmohawk.
Scott Kingery – Just gave you my Scott Kingery fantasy. It was written while holding onto a ladder that a librarian was pushing.
Colin Moran – Mentioned this the other day, but I think Moran could be more…and better than we’ve ever seen from him. And that’s me vaguely paraphrasing me!
Addison Russell – He’s a piece of garbage, but that doesn’t affect whether or not I’d own him, and, since he’s hitting, I would. By the way, I’d have more respect for him if he leaned in. Make your walk-up music, The Beatles, “Run For Your Life” or anything by Eminem about Kim.
Kevin Newman – The Pirates also have a Kevin Kramer in their minor league system. Now they just need a Kevin Elaine and paint the infield to look like a parking lot, so they could get lost in it.
Avisail Garcia – As mentioned recently, Avisail is a top 25 outfielder on the season, according to the Player Rater. That he’s not owned in every league is bizzonkers.
Brian Anderson – I’m partially under the belief that all the Marlins are hot because they ran into some poor pitching, but I’m also under the belief that the entire league is poor pitching and I’m also under the influence. WRITE ALL OF IT! Sorry, I’m angrily transcribing this to my intern.
Garrett Cooper – This is interesting (to me). I like Cooper a lot more than Anderson, but Anderson is owned in nearly 25% of leagues, and Cooper is owned in less than 2% of leagues. Of course, these are ESPN ownership numbers, which are written on a piece of paper that comes out of their copier, and all of their copier paper is run through the machine once while Matthew Berry scans his ass.
Myles Straw – Single-use plastic straws are being outlawed, but single-use Myles Straw are here for speed.
Randal Grichuk – Say what you want, but Grichuk shows great respect for the game of baseball, when, after each home run, he places a cape on the ground first, then lays his bat on top of it.
Jose Leclerc – The Apartheid South Afrikaner, Leclerc, should be closing in Texas as soon as this weekend, if you were to listen to Steve Winwood, but he’s been saying it since Roll With It.
Luke Jackson – With Kimbrel’s signing in Chicago, Jackson gets a bit more rope in Atlanta. Wouldn’t shock me to see the Braves trade for someone in July, but as Sir Alec Guinness said at the River Kwai, “Luke, we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.”
Ryan Pressly – Been a bit remiss not mentioning Pressly at all this year, his peripherals (0.64 ERA, 10.2 K/9) are so goofy, that they go into an interview for the Goofy job opening at Euro Disney and are instantly hired.
Zac Gallen – His numbers in Triple-A make me think he’s going to win a Cy Young within three years. Not joking. Not sure when he’s being promoted, but it could be any day now, Annie Potts.
Framber Valdez – With Corbin Martin getting expelled after the whole “Corbin Martin graduates” protest outside of his high school, Framber is worth grabbing in every league, but this is more of a Streamonator call for this week. One note of caution, Framber might not be fully stretched out, and Streamonator is dialing you right now because it’s lonely and wants to chat. Don’t answer the phone.
Trevor Cahill – This Streamonator call is a real trust fall. Like the trust fall the Streamonator makes into a pillow fort because it has no one to catch it. So sad!
Austin Riley – NOOOOOOOOOOO*trailing off*ooooooooooooo…. Those aren’t ellipsis at the end, they are tiny O’s. For those skimming this, Altuve has not been traded to the Orioles, not what I meant by tiny O’s. It is with much regret that I need to inform you that Austin Riley is playing a scooch over his head. For a thorough breakdown of why Austin Riley is overperforming Son did a solid breakdown. Since he wrote that, Riley’s BABIP has dropped nearly sixty points. Dot dot dot. In four days! Not saying I’d trade Austin Riley for a pack of tofu-based frankfurters called Not Dogs, but I would check out our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and explore options.
@Grey: you still up, yo?? Weekly roto redraft. My Kimbrel, Riley and Caleb smith for Scherzer or Verlander?
Verlander or Scherzer
Morton or Giolito ROS for counting stats ROS? We use QS.
12 team 6×6 h2h OPS/QS
Rosario and Strasburg for Lindor and Encarnacion (or Robles) in a keeper league.
don’t trade for E5 in a dynasty/keeper. robles/lindor might be the path here though.
NL only, bid how much on keuchel (or at least how much to price enforce if the current bid is 30, i have 63/100 left, kimbrel is already drafted and owned, bruce i just won for 31) if my other pitchers are (QS over wins, holds added, h2h 10 team)
SP: pab lop, mahle, lester, stressbird, castillo, davies, lucchesi, matz
RP (4 slots): urias, baez, V2, j.alvarez (the monkey is straight up wrong on hammer being ahead of him, j.alvarez has been used with the 7th inning leads hammer when behind albeit close)
DL: k-rob, steckenrider
NA (1) gallen
i’m thinking to price enforce fairly heavily here, the owner that open bid 30 i’ve never seen in 3 years back off of a bid once he’s bid (we do message board vickrey till a specified time, people can retract/change till the last minute: if nobody else bids anything the guy who bid 30 wins for 1). lots of other guys wait till near last minutes.
I wouldn’t bid that much for Keuchel
Is Brendan Rodgers droppable in 15 team leagues or hold?
probably depends on how many positions start (i.e. multiple utils, MI or no etc). also @ COL coming up AND vs lefties i think 4 out of next 7 (he’s been starting even more last few days than just lefties, but depth charts officially shows him the lefty sided guy). also with all drops, who would you be dropping him for (this last is always the most important part)
In a points league, would you recommend carrying 9 starters and 4 relievers, or 8 starters and 5 relievers?
Here’s my current setup
Would you drop Chavis for Pressly?
12 team 6×6 h2h OPS
Rosario and Bieber for Lindor?
It’s a keeper league so that factors in.
Oh, keeper? I’d prolly lean Lindor then
Eddie, but pretty fair
10 team H2H points league
Put these SP’s in order:
Best utility man going forward. Marwin or Asdrubal Cabrera. Thanks
I’m going to include Hunter Dozier in the list also only because he just became available. Thanks
Dozier of healthy
11 team 6×6 OPS/QS
Think I pulled off a good trade.
I sent Story, Albies, A Gordon, Renfroe, E-Rod and I get back
Rosario, Altuve, Verlander, Moustakas .
10 team H2H points league
Put these SP’s in order:
Sorry to bug you. 12 team Dynasty keep all, 2 players at each position, 5 outfielders. OPS added.
My Nola for his Castellanos and Neris.
I would move Hoskins to 1B for Dietrch who I would waive. Neris would help my ratios and saves, still have Quintana and Hamels on reserves with Cease and Gallon.
I also have Springer and JUP on the DL. First place team by a little.
Being mindful of opponent and home/away of course, does two of Peacock, Fried, P Lopez, Plesac or just stashing Gallen or Cease in an 11 tm roto keeper signal a must-own? I could stream but it is like .25 or .50 cents per transaction in our league so factoring that in.
Peacock would see to be owned… and Fried
Hope all is well. Yesterday you told me to drop Ohtani for Bruce. Waivers go through tonight and Ohtani is starting to heat up.
Bruce is still a free agent, and I was wondering if you like him ROS over any of these guys or should I hold? He’d be acting as a utility player. Thanks!
Musgrove back in the circle of trust? Starts @ Atl and @ Miami.
My other options are picking up one of Junis/Duffy vs Detroit or Bassit vs Seattle.
My SPs are Buehler, Montas, Heaney, and Gibson all going once and streaming Martin Perez for two starts.
40 inn. Minimum H2H and I usually try to plan 7-8 starts so I need to pick one of those guys mentioned above.
Just finished Chernobyl- the liquidators with shovels on the roof was the most insane thing ever.
@ATL does not sound good — if Bassitt’s at home, he’d be my choice, but none are good
So crazy with the shovels on the roof, right? Madness
@Grey: weekly roto redraft. drop alex reyes and/or miley for any of the following:
dakota hudson – @ mia, @ nym
turnbull – @ kc, vs cle
framber – vs tor
plesac – vs cin
Reyes for Framber
@Grey: thanks. Would you drop Miley to stash Gallen in redraft or am I getting sucked in to that rookie nookie?
Meh, I’d hold
@Grey: thanks for keeping me honest…
Odor over Cooper at Util in 14T obp?
LaStella or Tim Anderson?
For a bench bat Yordan or Nelson Cruz? It’s a shallow standard roto league.
Nelson Cruz and Didi are both available in my league on waivers. Who should I grab and is it close?
Danny Jansen or Wellington Castillo?
2-25 last 2 weeks for cooper?
And drop Gardner for deshields? need to
Jump up in the steals cats I’m in the middle. First in avg.
Homers and rbis is what I’m looking for.
Piscotty @rays and vs Mariners next week
Cooper vs cardinals and pirates
If I win the bid on yordan would it be wise to not pick up
Cooper and hold piscotty?
Sure re: not pick up Cooper and hold piscotty?
I’d want Gardner over DeShields
Grey: Getting mollywhopped this week as my 2-3 week slump finally caught up with me… Here is my team, where do I need to course correct? I just picked up Yordan and dropped Alvarado, so I have 2 bench spots right now, my first drop is probably Matt Carpenter for a SP
OF- Betts, Benintendi, Dahl
B- Yordan Alvarez, Matt Carpenter
SP- Fried, Marquez, Hendricks, Lester, Flaherty
RP- Romo, Neris, Holland, LeClerc, Strop, Parker
As you can see, my pitching has been an absolute shit show. I am guessing I should probably pick up Matz for his home start v. STL and drop Matt Carpenter?
The categories that have been losing on the offensive side have been HRs, RBIs, and Ks – apparently as a team, these guys strike out at roughly a 30% clip and barely hitting 10 HRs a week – I’m wondering if this is just a prolonged slump or the reality of my team.
On the ptiching side, I’m losing Ls, ERA, WHIP, and K/9 on the regular, Saves is a weekly battle since I can’t seem to catch a break there.
Trade Yordan for a better 3B? Carp for Matz seems fine…
you don’t see Senzel as a top 10 3B ROS?
Meh, so Yordan can sit on your bench then get sent down in 2 weeks?
word… i’ll throw some offers out there – hopefully someone bites
Don’t give him away for peanuts, obviously
threw out offers for Devers and Jo-Ram… i think either would be a nice upgrade
Pray Mookie gets his head out of his you know where-My team hit .205 this week and he was my worst hitter.
Who do I drop for Alvarez?
Trying to dial-in possible rotation adjustments. 10 team H2H, max 7 SP but players considered RP or RP/SP that start give me extra rosterable starts as they aren’t considered “SP.”
Current rostered players that count as SP:
1) Is the way I ordered 3-7 in-line with how you think of them?
2) Guys I could add:
Any add/drop combos you’d suggest here? Thinking E.Rod for Framber currently, but intrigued by Pivetta.
1. Seems ok 2. Framber and Pivetta over last 2
Would you drop any of the following closers for Kelley/LeClerc?
These are my current relievers
Would you drop any of the following to hold a 9th starting pitcher? I’m in a points league
How much are you bidding on yordan Alvarez $1000 league I have $400 left and need rbis, homers steals. I’m in 2nd place in league behind on pitching
Current outfields are
Bryant, Dahl, meadows, Bruce, piscotty
Bench Gardner, Gallo
Going to drop cishek for Alvarez
wonder who the lede is gonna be tomorrow?? :)
Drop Tapia for Niko or nah?
Not with Tapia going home
Would you drop Chavis for Gregorius in an OBP?
I just proposed my Mikolas for his Kingery? I need a batter, and he needs another starter (only has 4). The other team has Puig and Melky on his bench. If he says no, then what about Puig. Kingery can be kept for $4 while Puig is $22.
NL-Only, 10-TM, H2H, 5×5 (OBP)
IF M. Adams
SP Ryu, Musrove, Eflin, Matz, Mikolas, T. Richards, Ponce de Leon
RP Yates, Kimbrel, Jackson, Stripling, Newcomb
I’d take Puig
I’ll try that. Thanks!
No dice for either yet. He’s still thinking, but offered Dietrich. Dietrich is playing out of his mind, and is going to be a super-utility when Scooter gets back.
I’m not sure it’s worth giving up Mikolas for.
I’m wondering if I should just pick up Kang and drop Ponce de Leon since the Cards are going with Wacha. Is there anyone else on my staff you’d drop for Kang, and keep PdL just in case he gets some starts?
Thoughts on streaming Wacha? SON in neutral.
Can lose Ponce, but wouldn’t stream Wacha
I thought that you might say that about Wacha. Bummer is that I dropped Anibal for PdL, and he’s not available to be picked up till Tuesday morning. I’ll miss a decent match up @CHW tomorrow.
I need to move on from the trade for Puig or Kingery. He’s now countering Puig/Kingery for Rizzo. Big “NO THANK YOU!!… and good luck with your four SPs and 2 bench bats.”
Kang or Echavarria for PdL?
Happy Sunday Grey. Kris Bryant and Peacock or Moose and Wheeler side.
Bryant, pretty fair
Yordan alvarez…..where to draw the line for outfielder pick up. Peralto and mazara are my lowest to consider…..do swap 1?
Picked up Vargas to stream this last week which worked out great. He has two starts this week, @NYY and home vs STIL. SON obviously hates the NYY and likes the STL. 15 team league, do I drop or stream?
Who are you streaming instead? Prolly
I have some bench space so I can bench him this week as well. Gonna drop and drop someone else for a stream of Beede at home vs Padres
Gotcha, I’d prolly bench him then
In a pickle in h2h league. Need a starter today from a thin group. Don’t need Qs or Wins. Need strikeouts and not have my WHIP blown. Here are my ugly options:
Wainwright at Cubs
Suarez at home v Mariners
Perdomo at home v Nats
Separately, would you start P Lopez v Braves at home versus Fried?
Yes, on Lopez
Drop Fowler for Luplow. Jacoby Jones or B Dixon?
late to the Jay Bruce train… but hes still FA in my league somehow. I have two bench bats already… drop any of these guys for Bruce?
– Pence, Riley, Cruz, V Robles, Didi, Chavis
i’m leaning towards Chavis since he’s been pretty cold as of late… thanks boss!
Would you drop Danny Duffy for either Wainwright or Cal Quantrill? Thanks as always?
also would you trade Tapia, and Sean Doolittle for Max Fried?
said no to fried. Would you trade Tapia and doolittle for Kyle Hendricks?
Streaming Jose Suarez vs SEA?
Would you drop Cooper or Tapia to activate C Dickerson? 14T OBP
I’d drop Dickerson
Struggling in pitching lately; which bat(s) from the below list should I drop to add some streaming SP’s (12-team redraft):
Ohtani (only has UTL availability in Yahoo)
Thanks (as always)!
Chavis in both
in league 1, is Moran worth holding as well or just another schmohawk?
I like him as I say in this post and my last post
Maeda — Muncy
I have Rodgers and Tucker as my only two allowed reserves…should I look at LeClerc,Barnes,Yonny,Musgrove,Arrieta, Odor or Tapia as guys who will be more help this year? Currently, in first place. Or wait on prospects. What would you do?
Yonny or Leclerc over Rodgers depending on needs
Schoop or Kendrick ROS? Thanks Grey.
Kimbrel or LeClerc for saves ROS?
For counting stats ROS in a standard roto redraft league – Yordan or Didi? I have FOMO with Yordan so I need a dispassionate opinion. :-)
Depends if you really mean ROS or are just saying it… Really ROS? Then Didi
Grey, would u drop any of my staff to pick up Pivetta?
For counting stats ROS – Didi or Yordan?
Really ROS? Didi
Thanks. Would you take Nelson Cruz or CJ Cron ROS?
PTSD alert… 2019 Flaherty is actually 2018 Weaver! Noooooooo
yeah Flaherty completely destroyed my ERA and WHIP sooo there goes my H2H matchup this week. I need both Hendricks and Fried to throw near perfect starts today
Been a miserable week with one bright spot — Matz
Chernobyl was so good!
So good! It was crazy
I didn’t realize everyone spoke English in Russia either.
Haha, the biggest surprise, by far
Add Alvarez or Gregorius in OBP? Position doesn’t matter. Thanks
Yordan Alvarez time???? Reportedly so…
Yordan on the way!
Fun story – I picked up Didi too soon. Needed roster room when Springer went down & dropped him for Riley. That’s worked out well.
Was gonna pick Didi back up but friend beat me to it & talked trash.
Just saw the news that Yordan is coming up tomorrow – thought, “maaaaaaan, that lucky dbag, now he’s got both.”
I checked anyway & lmao because he dropped Yordan to add Didi. I guess he figured he wouldn’t get called up at all if he didn’t when Spring went down.
So it’s like I traded with him. Hopefully Yordan stays up when Springer comes back.
He’s gone in all my leagues
12 team 6×6 h2h OPS/QS
Verlander, Altuve and Rosario for Story E-Rod and Renfroe?
Going to ask for Verlander, Altuve, Rosario, DeJong for Story, E-Rod, Renfroe instead. Thoughts?
Okay, last thought.
Story, Albies, A Gordon, E-Rod for Altuve, Verlander, Moustakas, E Rosario?
What do you think about for backup 2B to Muncy. C.Hernandez, Dozier (who looks like he is heating up), Hiura, Shaw ? Thanks!
ESPN league with ten hitting cats. Please pick one from Jacoby Jones, Laureano, Chavis, Vogey, Kendrick, T Shaw.
1) How do you rank these prospect stashes? Redraft league Cease , Kyle Tucker , Luis Urias
2) ROS redraft , plesac or griffin?
1. Yordan, Urias
Was offered Jose Ramirez and Robbie Ray for my Muncy and Didi. Still buying a JoRam bounce back at some point? Is this is good move for me? (Didi is basically a backup SS for me anyway – I have Story). Thanks!
I think that’s a solid gamble for you
Standard 5 category league, do you like Plesac over any of my guys, or hold?
Over Canning if being skipped
Drop J Nelson to pick up Pivetta?
@Grey: 12 team weekly roto. We getting sucked back into Pivetta?
You wouldn’t trade Goldy away for Hamels and Odorizzi, right? Trade analyser certainly doesn’t think so.
Also sell Riley? YOU SHUT YOUR WHORE MOUTH!
That’s my boo!
Also, also; Haniger IL with a (gulp) ruptured testicle. It hurt to type that. Someone dropped him (like a testicle?) – any idea what the receiver is for a torn nad?
Receiver? A baseball mitt filled with ice? I wouldn’t drop him, prolly a few weeks
I might pick him up & stash him. He seems too good, even with 1 nut. lol
Oops – typo. “Recovery”.
Don’t wanna jinx it, but my boy Framber Valdez is killin it today.
He looked good his first start too. Could be at future Buy!
Halle Berry was hot as fire on Hot Ones, too. 52! She crushed it!
Damn, she looks incredible for 52! Are you selling some sauces?
Yeah; the web orders are creeping up, quite a few wholesale folks (small shops) hitting me up, a couple distributors sniffing around (one with an order) and web orders creeping up too. Some nice farmers market boosts from it as well. It all helps!
@Grey: got any podcast recs?
Hmm… So many! Running from Cops? Bear Brook? Ballad of Billy Balls? There’s more, off top of my head
@Grey: awesome, thanks!
Also, weekly roto redraft, I’ve been stashing Reyes. Drop him for Framber or Gallen?
Framber, Cousin Herschel, Framber
10-team, 6×6 (holds and OPS) categories league, each team can keep up to 8 players without penalty
Would you trade my Machado and Flaherty for his Betts?
I’m currently right in the middle of the standings and should still be able to compete this year. Betts would replace Machado on my keeper list.
Current roster (* = guys I’m currently planning on keeping):
C – Contreras
1B – Abreu
2B – Fletcher
3B – Bregman*
SS – Machado *
MI – Mondesi *
CI – Bryant *
OF – Acuna*
OF – Eloy*
OF – Dahl
OF – Starling
U – Ohtani
IL Bats – Correa*, Scooter
P – Sale*
P – Treinen
P – Wheeler
p – Tanaka
P – Pressley
P – Marquez
P – Greinke
P – Canning
Bench Arms – Flaherty, Woodruff, Leclerc, Darvish, Luke Jackson, Diego Castillo, Jimmy Nelson, Gant
Thanks in advance!
Sure, take Betts
Hi Grey (and Razzball Community),
I am on the same page as Grey regarding Keuchel. I too believe his K/9 is unimpressive, and he will be pitching against some tougher lineups albeit NL ones. However, I am in an NL-Only league, which ups his value verses being a Mixed-League.
I am in a unique position in my league. I have the #1 WP, and Keuchel would give me the opportunity to make a deal to get another hitter. I was hoping to wait for a strong AL SP or Hitter to be traded in the next 4-6 weeks to get me through the dog days and play-offs. Keuchel might not be ready for another 3 weeks, so I would be holding him in a streamer spot. I already have to wait for Kimbrel to get game-ready, and I have Hampson NA. I really don’t want to drop Stripling or Newcomb just yet, as I see value in both of them as relievers.
I’m curious as to what you (Grey), and the RB community would do if it was their team. I’m currently in 1st Place by 3 games, and I play the 2nd place team next week, followed by the 4th place. I wouldn’t have Keuchel either way, and could use the extra spot to Batty Calls and streaming SPs. It’s head-to-head, so I am okay if week to week finding using the Batty Call to put in place for Hampson (NA) at utility.
A) Pass on Keuchel, and wait for my pick of the AL guys that are coming over. Let the 2nd place team (#2 WP) claim him and eat up a roster spot. He currently has Gausman, so he’d lose a starter eventually.
B) Put in the claim for Keuchel, and start talking with teams about a trade for a hitter. Who is a fair bat for one of Keuchel, Eflen, or Musgrove. I would need to solidify this by tomorrow as Keuchel comes off of waivers on the 10th. I’d drop Ponce de Leon for him.
C) Pick up Keuchel and own him since it’s NL-Only and figure it out as I go.
I’m leaning A as B doesn’t seem likely to happen, and I don’t want to burn my #1 WP on meh, bleh, and blah. Also, even though this is a keeper league, Keuchel couldn’t be kept for the $1 he was drafted for since his rights were dropped, so there’s even less incentive to do pick him up for me. However, this is a tough decision, and I value your insight. THANKS!!
NL-Only, 10-TM, H2H, 5×5 (OBP)
IF M. Adams
SP Ryu, Musrove, Eflin, Matz, Mikolas, T. Richards, Ponce de Leon (stream spot)
RP Yates, Kimbrel, Jackson, Stripling, Newcomb
You know what you have to do… Forget Keuchel, stream what you need to stream and wait for someone better to get traded to NL
Would you trade Harper for Meadows straight up in a points league?
Nah, but might be fair
DTD arnaud AGAIN on the catcher stream. pretty sure i’ve now streamed him exactly twice and gotten 3 HR’s in like 1.15 or less games, and this is for multiple deep leagues.
Is Skaggs a streamer in RCL or worth a roster spot?
If so drop him for one of RP Parker, Givens, Buttrey or Diego (top 2 please since some are on waivers)
Hope you are having a great weekend …finally sunny & warm(ish) here in Brew town
Yes, streamer, barely
Great write up!
Bruce, Reynolds and Cooper are Free Agents.
Do you make any move(s) for any of my guys? Mostly concerned with ROS since I’m in first. Do you hold?
Bruce over Ohtani
Boyd or wheeler in a qs league?
Pivetta or Gallen ROS
Would you give up muncy and canning for wheeler? 12 team with qs instead of wins. I have didi I can play if I do this trade, but not sure if I should.
I’ll add current staff snell flaherty Bieber paddack fried canning. I have tailon and strahm on the il.
Can you please rank your top 4 ROS of each group?:
1) Mahle, Turnbull, Heaney, Miley, Fried
2) Laureano, Hicks, Kendrick, Piscotty, Kingery, Goodrum, C. Stewart
1. Fried, Heaney, Miley, Mahle 2. Piscotty, Goodrum, Kingery, Hicks
Thanks, very helpful. Of the pitchers, which of them are you holding in a 12 teamer?
