I didn't get away for the holiday. Doesn't mean I didn't set off some fireworks, OK many, in my parents driveway with my brother and his two kids (six and four). Did I tell you I'm the greatest uncle in the history of the world? For those of you wondering why I'm still here and not in Hawaii... the family trip had to be put off three weeks. I'll get there, and the pina colada's will certainly be flowing. There's something in here about baseball too, I swear.

Richard Costa - All depends on who you add, but in general, I would say to hold both a little longer. My rankings are here - http://www.fantasyalarm.com/rankings.php

MC - I'd lean duo. Donaldson is not Cabrera, but he's got a shot to be a top5 3B, or at worst top10. Tanaka could be a top10 SP. That's a nice move.

Michael Magid - I would avoid Kennedy today.

Hi Ray. Need to streamline pitching staff in Roto league. Great anchors in Kershaw and King Felix but need to fix the back end, CJ Wilson and Keuchel have been awful lately, so I picked up Alex Wood. Is it time to drop either Wilson or Keuchel? Thanks.


Ray, which side please: Tanaka & Donaldson or Miggy? Competing for this year!

Michael Magid 

Hi Ray. Kennedy at Coors today a no-go? Thanks as always!
