Offseason 2019

Grey, it was a good year, my bats were incredible, but my pitching was junk. Disappointment from Sale and Kluber really set me back.

I am trying to get a good sense of what to do with my 8 keeper slots next year:

Devers, Treat Urner, and Soto form my core. I may keep Sale just to have one SP within the first 130 players kept.

I then have JD, Blackmon, Cruz, Santana, and Bell. They are all very similar in profile with Blackmon being more Run slanted and the others being more RBI.

I would like to try and add a bit more speed to my team so i am not chasing as much later.

I believe the order for those bats outside my core in keeper value would be:
- Bell, JD, Blackmon, Cruz, Santana...would it be worth it for me to try and move Bell and/or JD to try and get some more speed into my core? That may allow me to hold on to Cruz and Santana as undervalued bats?

That order seems fine... I'd try to move Bell, maybe Trea? Mondesi? Someone like that...

You would consider a Turner for Mondesi swap?

Nah, saying who I'd trade Bell for, sorry, missed Turner above in your for-sures... I wouldn't trade for another huge steals guy if I had Turner... Maybe like a Springer type with Bell?

That makes sense.

Our league has specific OF slots. It looks like Blackmon and JD will both be RF only next year. If I hold Cruz he has to go to the utility slot.

Would a Blackmon or JD for Merrifield trade be a terrible idea. I know his Sb are down and don’t think he will top 30 again but a 15/20 type 2B bat could still be helpful I think.

I know that as soon as guys hit 30 he is viewed as old and undesirable in this league.

Not terrible but I think you can do better... If you must, I think Blackmon more over the hill than JD, but Merrifield is pushing up there in age too...
