  1. 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.
  2. Pitcher

    I'd give Heaney the slight edge.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Do I make this 4 person trade?

    Yeah I still don't think I would do it. I know Goldy's been AWFUL to start the year and he hasn't HR'd in almost a month. But I'd rather wait until he comes around. He's 30% K-rate is higher than normal, but it'll likely regress back to roughly the 22% it normally is and the power and hits will come back. I know the humidor has some people running scared, but he's still an elite hitter.
  7. Do I make this 4 person trade?

    Who would be your 1B if you dealt Goldy away?
  8. trade question

    If you could land Severino or Cole for one of those guys I'd recommend doing it considering you have a ton of ground to gain in ERA. First base has been awful to start the year so if you can land an ace pitcher you can do that. If you need help with Saves then target the TOR bullpen on waivers. It's unclear how long the Roberto Osuna assault investigation will carry on, but they have a few guys that could be in line for saves.
  9. Do I make this 4 person trade?

    I wouldn't want to give up on Kershaw yet especially in a points league. Any chance James McCann is available on Waivers to be your catcher?
  10. Should I trade cueto for romero

    If someone's willing to part with Romero for Cueto then go for it. Cueto won't be back until June 28th at the earliest so if you are desperate early on in the season you can try and make that move. Just be aware Romero's been hot, but he does have a serious problem with walks.
  11. Archer

    Yeah you can probably make the trade. We're heading into the 6th week of the fantasy baseball season so you're starting to get a better understanding of how your team stacks up. With that said this isn't a groundbreaking shakeup, but you're still acquiring a good pitcher, but Archer does suck on the road. I think you'd be able to find a replacement for Pivetta on waivers especially if you drop Stratton.
  12. Archer

    What's your current standing in the league? I know you're in last in wins and strikeouts so it might be a good move to take the deal just to mix something up? Archer's FIP suggests better times are ahead, albeit not that much better. My concern with Archer is that I don't trust him on the road and obviously not against NYY or BOS. So now it becomes a question of are you getting enough trustworthy starts out of Archer and is it worth giving up Pivetta?
  13. Minor league draft for my H2H points keeper league

    If stolen bases are a premium then I'd take a good look at Royce Lewis. He was the 1st overall pick in 2017 and he has 8 steals in 17 games so far this season in the minors. Raimel Tapia is also very interesting if the Rockies every figure out how to get a less crowded outfield. He could be very productive in Coors. I also like Austin Riley, but he'll need to get the K's down and the BB's up at some point. Hope this helps!
  14. OF Pickup

    DeShields or Mallex Smith will help you with speed. I wouldn't drop Tim Anderson because if you need help with speed he also helps you there.
  15. Tyler O'Neill

    Yeah you can do that. Tucker is 3-for-27 in his last ten games. Neither guy walks much, but O'Neill has a ton of power. Playing time is a big concern for O'Neill, but this move isn't going to make or break your roster. You're still loaded on offense.
