Daily Trends: May 5th
I had a killer weekend. By my count, and I talked about this on my Sunday night show on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio (Fantasy Sports Tonight, 7-10 PM EDT), I hit up seven bars in three cities. Yes, that is both impressive and sad. I'm going with impressive. I even watched the Clippers/Warriors Game 7 (well the 4th quarter at least). My brain is working fine, don't worry (hangovers don't get me), so you can be sure that this piece will be spot on.

Happy Cinco de Mayo by the way.
Derek - As I wrote 10 days ago, really hard to have Stroman on a roster in a 10 tm lg - http://www.fantasyalarm.com/articles/flowers/18435/stroman-hou-chc-bullpens/
Would you drop Stroman for Rasmus right now or just be patient to see what happens with Stroman? I have lots of pitching depth and not much hitting depth. 10 team mixed roto
ritch - All depends on your options. Will say this with Rasmus. Very streaky. He's hot now. Probably smart to ride for a while and then try to parlay.
I picked up Colby Rasmus for depth in my H2H 1o team points league and was going to drop him for a SP waiver pickup but then he blew up in a good way. What do you think going forward ? Keep him for a while ? Ritch
Hi Ray, I have made 7 trade attempts in this league. It's a lame league. One trade made in the league the entire season by all teams at the beginning of the season.
Miguel Enguidanos - Yes, I prefer Garza, but I'm positive you could have gotten back a strong pitcher for Perez if you had traded him. Probably would have been adviseable to do that.
I had dropped Garza to pick-up Martin Perez, then I read your rankings and Garza wasn't picked up so I reversed it. Per your rankings the right move.
