  2. Prospect pitchers for keeper league

    Sorry for not seeing the post earlier than now. If you check out the prospect reports over the last few weeks, I've named some under the radar pitching prospects that could come up this year. I love the three guys you named who are available with Gore being at the top of the list, however he is still a few years away, but in terms of stuff could replace Carson Fulmer or Woodruff if you were willing to wait that long. Justus Sheffield is closest to MLB-ready of the three you listed but the Yankees have been willing to hold him back a bit having used a couple of pitchers instead of him to fill spot starts in the rotation, and now they are talking about trading for a starter before the deadline. Hope that helps.
  3. Cain -> Arrietta trade

    I wouldn't do it. Arrieta's been awful his last three starts and he doesn't have much strikeout upside. Would rather keep Cain.
  4. Cain -> Arrietta trade

    Received an offer of Jake Arrietta for Lorenzo Cain. My current OF: Mookie Betts, Christian Yelich, Lorenzo Cain, Jorge Soler, Yasiel Puig, and Corey Dickerson. Current SPs are Jacob Degrom, Jon Lester, Jose Berrios, and I’ve been playing matchups with my 4th starter. League allows for 3 starting OF, 2 Util (which I fill as Extra OF) and 7 Ps (RP or SP) with daily lineup adjustments.

  6. Pitcher

    I'd give Heaney the slight edge.
  7. Pitcher

    I have Strasburg going on DL. Who should I get A Heany or J Flaherty?
  8. I might choose Muncy. He's been hitting the ball really well lately and he has some multi-positional eligibility. As far as who you can drop? I'd probably pick Michael Fulmer.
  9. I can keep 1 guy but than it redraft otherwise.
  10. Keeper/dynasty or redraft?
  11. The 4 guys I was looking at are Jurickson Profar, josh Harrison, Derek Dietrich or max muncy I would ThAn have to drop 1 of the following Marco Gonzalez, Tyler Skaggs, Caleb smith, Micheal fulmer or robinson cano. I’m kinda deep on SP
  12. Prospect pitchers for keeper league

    Any high risers this season that would be under the radar? Guys available are Mackenzie Gore, Hunter Greene, Justus Sheffield to name a few. The studs are mostly taken like Walker Buehler types. I've got Dylan Cease, Franklin Perez, Sixto Sanchez, Brandon Woodruff, and Carson Fulmer. Any guys not worth keeping that I've named? Just need some names to watch out for during our minor league draft. Thanks!
  13. For years wireless cell carriers have sold off consumer location data to everyone from urban planners to marketers without much in the way of oversight. Every so often that lack of oversight becomes painfully clear as we just saw with the Securus and Locationsmart scandal, which exposed the location data of roughly 200 million US and Canadian wireless consumers. Both companies buy real-time access to this data from cell carriers, but a lack of oversight resulted in access to this data being routinely abused. ulted in access to this data being routinely abused.

  14. One hot day, an ant was searching for some water. After walking around for some time, she came to a spring. To reach the spring, she had to climb up a blade of grass. While making her way up, she slipped and fell into the water. She could have drowned if a dove up a nearby tree had not seen her. Seeing that the ant was in trouble, the dove quickly plucked off a leaf and dropped it into the water near the struggling ant. The ant moved towards the leaf and climbed up there. Soon it carried her safely to dry ground. Just at that time, a hunter nearby was throwing out his net towards the dove, hoping to trap it. Guessing what he was about to do, the ant quickly bit him on the heel. Feeling the pain, the hunter dropped his net. The dove was quick to fly away to safety. Moral of the Story: One good turn deserves another.

  16. Trade offer/keeper league

    Franmil Reyes is a massive power hitting outfielder for the Padres who put up big numbers in Double-A and Triple-A the last two years. The problem is that there is no guarantee of continued playing time for Reyes given the abundance of outfielders on the Padres roster. The deal as a whole isn't a terrible one with getting cheaper keepers back in return. I am not sure that Flaherty would ever bring back Trout or Kluber even at his keeper value by himself. You are correct that Didi is an upgrade over Nunez however you would lose the steal upside of Nunez so see if you could re-work the deal swapping Nunez out for Perez so your middle infield would be Didi, Baez, and Nunez.
  17. 14 team 5 by 5 league; current salary in parentheses (salary doubles if kept). Was offered Luke Weaver (2), Didi Gregorius (2), and Franmil Reyes (1) for Michael Wacha (5), Eduardo Nunez (4), and Jack Flaherty. I currently have Herman Perez at 2nd, Javier Baez at short and Nunez at MI. My pitching (which is 2nd in the league) consists of Wacha, Flaherty, Lyles, Leake, Verlander, Ivan Nova (DL), Triggs (DL), Strasburg, Estrada, Skaggs, and Manea. I'm in 5th place overall and my hittingis slowly coming around. Didi is an upgrade from Nunez but would still need a more viable option than Hernan. I don't know much about Reyes and I am a little worried that I might be able to get more for Flaherty later in the season when some people are willing to trade a Kluber or Trout for valued keepers. I'm leaning away from this but would like other opinions in case i am overthinking. Thanks.
  18. Should I drop any of these guys Cano, Kingham or Freddy Peralta?

    I can't imagine Kingham will be a highly sought after starting pitcher, unless you're in a super deep league. If I was to drop any of those guys it would be him.
  19. Dynasty Trade

    I would absolutely make that deal. Four quality bats, three of whom are young guys for a pitcher finally having his breakout year is one you should take in a heartbeat. With that much pitching depth, the loss of Nola won't hurt as badly as not getting those bats on your roster if you don't make the deal.
  20. Right now I have Cano on DL but if I want to make any moves going forward I would have to activate or cut him so idk if I should hold him since he would be back in time for playoffs. Also with Peralta I use #1 waiver for him so idk if I should hang on to him still. Than Kingham I know could see future starts also. 1 guy I was looking at to pickup would be josh Harrison is he worth picking up if I have to drop 2 or those guys. Others I could just are kevin pillar he kinda in a slump now lmk
  21. Dynasty Trade

    Right now I am struggling with hitting. I have a deep pitching rotation with Scherzer, Nola, Carrasco, Tanaka, Lester, Happ, and Hamels. I was offered a trade for Nola. I would receive Ozuna, Matt Olson, Beltre, and Bird. This is a 10 team dynasty league and I can keep my entire team.
  22. Which Pitcher should I Trade

    Kind of a tough question to answer. Are there any areas you could use help in? How's the rest of your rotation looking? Is this points/H2H categories/roto? For whatever reason, Arrieta's been solid so far, but his strikeouts are WAY down so he loses value in points. Rodriguez, on the other hand, has been worse but his K/9 rate is nearly twice that of Arrieta's. Arrieta will get you a bigger haul just based on name recognition, but I'd only trade him if you have other strong pitchers on your squad.
  23. Keeper league trade - Machado for Kingery+

    1. I would not make the trade. I love Kingery for the future and the price is outstanding, but I don't know if O'Neill and Heaney is enough of an add-on considering what acquiring Machado could do for a team this season. 2. If you're pitching is that bad, you would need someone willing to deal you two high-end starters. Not saying Scherzer level, but you would need strong, stable guys in return. Unfortunately, though, you're cutting off a chunk of your offense and run the risk of losing ground on the offensive counting stats, something you thought you could improve on. 3. I would hold Machado and try to patch up pitching with a smaller deal. If you can't get something worthwhile done, at least you'll be a littler closer to the trade deadline where a desperate team looking to make a final push would offer you something better than Kingery. Good luck!
  24. 14 team 5x5 keeper league with 260 salary cap. Can keep up to 10 players each year, and players can be kept for up to 5 years (including original draft year) at +$5 per year. My team is in 9th place and my pitching is a mess with no help in sight - Colome is my only closer and Scherzer/Skaggs are my only starters worth a damn. I'm also near the bottom in SBs, and just middle of the road in the rest of hitting (though I feel like I could move up in those non-SB spots with my current roster). I have Manny Machado, who can't be kept after this year. First place team has offered me Scott Kingery (in year 1/$1 salary), Tyler O'Neill (1/$5) and Andrew Heaney (1/1) for Machado. Should I 1 - Make the trade, essentially bailing on the season and trying to build with Kingery and hope O'Neill is ready for next season as well. 2 - Trade Machado in a different deal to get pitching help now. 3 - Hang on to Machado and look for pitching help elsewhere I'm not usually a play for the future guy, but I blew it on pitching this year and with 40 man rosters in this league there is nothing on waivers. Having a hard time valuing the return for Machado, since he can't be kept.
