H2h category would you trade Joey gallo and Myles straw for julio Rodriguez? I’d pick up alek Thomas from waivers right after
No way you can pull that off
Sewald or pagan for saves going forward?
Anybody watching the game, what in the world happened to Megill?
No Megill… no… why?
Atta babe, Megill
Hey Cody I'm sure you'll see this. 10 team dynasty categories league. Which side? A. Brandon Lowe or B. Josiah Gray
I’m still mad Casty didn’t get that bomb and went 0/4. Thanks for reading my blog.
Just picked up Voit. Fully prepare for him to go 0-4 4ks tomorrow
Jesus the Ms are lifeless
Hosmer my best pickup lol, y’all think he’ll keep playing like this
Why did Cobb only go 5.1 innings?
got excited when I saw one of my players pop up in the thread. Then I saw your little snowflake emojis...
Rodon or Woodruff?
This feels like Buxton (Rodon) vs Tucker (Woodruff).
I'll take the safer ones Tucker/Woodruff
I need Salvy and Albies to turn it up a notch man
Just missed it, great at bat tho
jrod bomb calling it now
Fuck you okert hope you have a shit ass day today
Tyler O'Neill... what a waste of space.
Really thought it was going to be the breakout season for him
I don't think you can have two breakouts
Need Julio to bail out Gilbert with a nice HR
I have no idea who Steven Okert is, but fuck him.
Ok, now that I lost my Sandy win, Varsho and Ketel feel free to swing for the fences
Marlin's bullpen is next level
On paper, my roster is filthy. In reality, I’m in dead last :)
Right there with you.
Why is that an earned run for Cobb?
Because the runner was on third, can't assume an out at home there and it would've only been the second out.
merill kelly off the hook lets gooooooo
No that's terrible. He deserves to lose.
Just like that Sandy’s win is gone…
Miami bullpen special
Tie game in AZ
Gimenez or Thomas?
Owen Miller, Yepez, Bohm, or Hoskins?
Is KKKKKaleb Smith back?
Totally forgot about him
I'm in a 10 team dynasty points league. I have strong pitching (Cole, Buehler, Syndergaard, McClanahan, Manoah, Ohtani, Webb, Fried, with Flaherty and McCullers on IL and Meyer looking like he'll be up soon). I need a 1B and the owner with Torkelson might be willing to trade. Which SP would be a fair 1 for 1 in a dynasty league?
Another Alek Thomas hit
Got to love going 1/17 with 10 Ks. Thanks alot Schwarber, C. Taylor, and B. Reynolds.
Rodon for Castillo and Margot just went down in my league. This isn’t quite veto territory, is it?
Nah. It's pretty bad don't get me wrong but Rodón's arm is a ticking time bomb, there's a reason he was drafted in the 70-80s. Castillo and him actually have pretty comparable career numbers. I'd have asked for a much better secondary piece than Margot but I've seen much worse trades than that
Really bad trade, i’d say if he started the season on an undroppable’s list at this point its vetoable.
IMO you don't veto unless you think there is collusion. Right now it seems very lopsided but lets say Rodon gets hurt next week and Castillo pops off like his old self, suddenly the team that we thought got a shit return comes out ahead.
I actually had a trade last year at the end of April with Rodon and Cedric Mullins for Giolito and Gleyber Torres. People threw a huge fit about how unbalanced it was and it got veto'd and what I thought was a sell high ended up winning me the league through other peoples veto.
prob not veto-able but wow thats a shitty trade
No. I would rather have Rodon, but its not such a bad trade as to veto.
No. Not at all.
I don’t think so. Castillo could be a top 20 pitcher. Margot is still on the waiver in my 12-team league.
Veto is for collusion only.
Buxton is back 🙏🏼 bless up
YES! RETURN OF THE KING!
Should have left cobb in. Lost strike zone at start of inning but was otherwise fine
Ump wasn’t doing him any favors either he threw a few borderlines and got none of them
I'd probably decline it without thinking much if I was Berrios owner.
I hope Jose Alvarez sleeps on lego bricks
Sell Hoskins high if he plays well the rest of the week?
I'd be holding personally but if you can capitalize, go for it.
Lol what you gonna get for him? He's as avg 1B for fantasy as they come
Schwarber is ass
I haven’t had a single pitcher not have an inherited runner score so far this year. And I truly don’t think I’m exaggerating
Drop 1 of Eugenio Suarez or Bohm for any of Andres Gimenez, Gleyber Torres or Chris Taylor? Flair league
Suarez for gleyber i guess
Schwarber/Witt Jr for Bell/Story. 10 team points league.
Give me the best hitter...bell side
Unfortunately I’m playing the Bell/Story owner this week so depending on the outcome he may or may not be willing to entertain a trade. Thanks for the input!
He got a double play ball that was an error and then two more outs..? I mean I get bitching about not getting a QS but that worked out pretty much perfectly for the Giants
So relievers just never strand runners anymore. Got it
Seriously, what's the point of pulling a guy when his relief is just going to come in and blow it wide open?
Well it was fun, see y'all next week. Cycles are worth 300 points in my league cus why not and my opponent has Yelich
That’s stupid af. They happen 5-6 times a season. That’s 5-6 insta wins.
Agreed. No hitters are 200 and perfect games are 350. So maybe one of those and I'll be back in it 🙄
Second time playing against Hoskins and he continues to mash only against me. Fucking hell
Make a waiver claim for Bobby Witt in a 10 team points league?
He's less valuable in points than categories but yes, I think he will be good ROS
Would you start Wheeler vs Dodgers tomorrow?
Start your studs
He's muh ace
Sandy get right game
Redraft OPS + WHIP + K/9 league. Thoughts?
**A: Verlander + Stanton**
**B: Woodruff + Luis Robert**
Both players are better on B
Figured as much, just making sure it's not offensive for A to offer that to B!
Was gonna feel bummed about Ketels line today but forgot Sandy is on the mound. Respect
looks like the wheel has spun and it's my turn for my starter's inherited runners to score. Prove me wrong Giants!!
You just know this reliever is about to let both these runs come in
Let Cobb get the QS!
Ugh fuck off Kapler
Here comes the inherited runners for Cobb fuck me up SF
FUCK YOU GABE KEPLER
Damn I wish they didn’t take Cobb out
There goes my Cobb QS :(
I don’t trust any reliever that comes after my SP
Kapler is gutless.
I don’t have a catcher. Should I trade kopech for a Wil smith. I have a bunch of other solids starters like Ian Anderson, cease, Gilbert, Musgrove, rogers, and kirby
If I have Tellez, Margot, and Naylor at the end of my bench, should I send Tellez for Bednar? Could use a closer.
Come on Cobb let’s finish this off
Every week all of my hitters either shit themselves or go off. I’m 2-2 about to lose to a guy who is still starting DeJong…
Lol don’t you hate that? Guys who pay zero attention beating you
Every year, without fail, I get absolutely fucked by Rhys Hoskins going off. He sucks for weeks before I play him, and will go back to sucking after I play him, but he's a Hall of Fame level MLB player when I play him.
Maybe he's telling you to draft him?
I've thought about that, but then he'll just suck all year because he won't get to play against me.
What a shitty fucking day for pitching
Looking to add a SP in my 12 team cats GS leage.
Adding desclafani, DLing --- add lorenzen, hudson or strider
What about Kirby?
Better stash, Jhoan Duran or Alex Thomas?
Duran. Saves are always toughest to come by
Agreed. Is a hot gimenez worth dropping for Thomas?
What pitchers are bulking tomorrow
Kuhl gave up 6 runs in 5 starts and 2 were at coors. I pick him up and start him and he gives up 5 in 5 innings. And I was already last in ERA and WHIP so that makes absolute sense.
Do Martin Pérez next
K how about now?
Yes, it does make absolute sense that a mediocre pitcher has a rough outing against a solid offense
This is on you. Everyone with a brain knows Kuhl is not good
Man this unraveled fast for Nick Martinez he was ballin
Fuck Rhys Hoskins. Guy does nothing all season and goes off the one week I face him.
This is his thing tbh
It’s true. Streaky as hell…just pisses me off he does something the week I face him.
Currently 0/16 with a .116 OBP. But somehow overall have gained ground as my opponent is 0/13 with a .091. This is the worst offense I’ve ever seen
I’m 0-for-7 today and .171 for the week. Fucking scrub Rhys Hoskins has the same amount of RBI’s today as my team does all week. So yeah…
A. Salvador Perez
B. Kiebert Ruiz and Whit Merrifield
Man it’s gonna be awesome when Julio stops hitting worm burners
112 EV. Stott was shocked he picked it lol
Logan and Kelly screwed me over today Wright fucked up yesterday McClanahan better do something
Are you me? We’re gonna get bent over the hood.
Who would you pick for 1B: Rhys, Rowdy, or Connor Joe?
I’m that exact order
I really thought Matt Olson would be an absolute stud this year but he's been having a rough start.
He had a great start actually first 2 weeks were amazing , then a rough 2nd 2 weeks
Feel like 2/3 of the league on O is having a rough start.
Who’s best? Nelson Cruz, Ozuna, Muncy
He’s ice cold right now but I still think Muncy will put up the best numbers by season’s end.
Even in a categories league where I don’t get anything for walks?
Yes - assuming R, RBI, and HR are cats in your league, he will provide plenty of value. If your league uses OBP instead of BA, he’s even more valuable. I think Cruz will rebound slightly but it looks like time has finally caught up with him. Ozuna has hit more than 30 home runs only once in his ten year career. Muncy has hit at least 35 every year since he became a full time player in 2018, except for the shortened 2020 season.
Cruz homering tonight change your mind at all, he might be heating up?
It doesn’t change anything for me. I think he’s still capable of being a useful fantasy player just not on the same level as Muncy.
It’s an average league not obp, but I get what you’re saying. Just annoyed with slow start. He just going to have to ride the pine for a little bit because he ice cold.
Carlson, Kepler or Kwan? 10 h2h, OBP counted
Comeon Sandy no more walks you’re better than this
I trade: Buxton/Seager
I receive: Mookie/Alonso
Even trade given Buxton health. Depends on your needs
Can’t trust Buxtons health
After much deliberation, I have traded rizzo and montas for rendon and nimmo. i have a decent rotation and i desperately need OBP guys. also, taylor ward is my only CF eligible player, and he’s DTD.
Basically a 2 for 1 for Rendon, could have got somebody like Nimmo on waivers. I will say he has potential to score alot of runs batting lead off with a high career OBP%
the best CF currently on waivers is Jesus Sanchez tho and I need that slot filled
I think you got fleeced if im reading this right
Eh. Not blown away but fits needs
What are the odds the Mariners can score enough runs to bail Gilbert out of this loss? 1-2%? Where is apply tv when you need them
Going up against Ohtani, Verlander, Cortes, Hoskins, and Yelich this week. Needless to say, my week is over.
Trout, Yelich, Hendricks, Kopech and a hot Willy Contreras over here
That's rough my guy
Should i add alek Thomas
He’s the DBacks top prospect, had a high walk rate in the minors w a low K rate. Has power and speed could potentially contribute in all 5 cats
Short answer: sure who would you drop tho
Drop Josh Donaldson
Corbin Carroll would like a word, but this lol.
If you have someone droppable never hurts to ride a hot bat and see what happens.
Considering dropping kwan or laureano for him myself. I think you should try to get him on your team yeah
Should be owned in 12+
I streamed cool Chad and I am uncool mad.
Anyone marching Joey Wentz out there tonight against the A’s?
They had Contreras out by a country mile with a better throw and tag and of course he scores on the next pitch
League average batting:
2017: .255/.324/.426 (.750 OPS)
2018: .248/.318/.409 (.728 OPS)
2019: .252/.323/.435 (.758 OPS)
2020: .245/.322/.418 (.740 OPS)
2021: .244/.317/.411 (.728 OPS)
2022 so far: .233/.306/.371 (.677 OPS)
And last year (previous years as well) pitchers were much better with the sticky stuff.
Honestly less of a drop-off than I thought given all the talk about it. 2022 might be the coldest of all those years too, and this would go up anyway for the full season due to warmer weather
I’d be curious to see the league averages those years through May 10th
Yeah, comparing end of year stats to a month-plus statistic doesn't tell us much of anything
2019 . The year I won. Makes sense
My hitters are suckin so much cock that I don’t even bat an eye at a 1/10 start to my day
The new normal
Kirby or Cobb?
