Manaea or Gallen ROS and for dynasty?
Eovaldi or Cobb ros?
Of course Renfoe and Bryant are now dtd when I already have 6 injured pitchers and no roster space
Potential waiver wire pick up of Alex Cobb…
He’s an improvement over Rasmussen ROS, right?
12 team roto
i think so. Cobb’s had astoundingly bad luck (compare his ERA to his FIP). Rasmussen’s showing he belongs, but the upside seems limited, and the Rays are gonna Ray, so you’re looking at a lot of quick hooks
Why is Vaughn so lowly rostered
Because he doesn't get consistent playing time nor slot in the batting order, which greatly diminishes his value for fantasy purposes.
Is Ian Anderson droppable? Jhoan Duran on waivers and I could use the potential saves over Anderson’s mediocrity
In most league formats I’d way prefer Anderson
Naylor, Margot or Soler ROS? (10 team points)
5x5: Brendan Rodgers or Arraez?
both and put arraez in one of his other elgible positions
How do we all feel about Sears getting the spot start on Wednesday? Will he just be opening up a bullpen game? Or is the goal for him to pitch 5+ innings? His numbers look phenomenal at Scranton.
Thanks for the heads up! I just added him in my 16-team points league.
I added him speculatively. Not sure if I’ll stream or not but I probably will.
Trade Bobby Witt and Marcus Semein for Kris Bryant and Harrison Bader?
12 team H2H points league
Absolutely not. Bryant is broken.
Semien is pretty broken right now too fwiw
Availability is the best ability. Semien can at least start to produce. Bryant on the other hand...
Glad I have no life and got up at 3am yesterday to get Ashby. Having no life has it's advantages...🤷
Feeding a baby at 3 am has its advantages
This is me being a night shift worker. It’s awesome to beat the league to waivers
More fun to play in a league with a competitive FA system.
Keeper league H2H Cats -10 Hitters cats / 8 Pitching cats (keep 5)
I also have Witt Jr/ Julio so I'm kinda torn on who I'm going to keep because these kids are going to be top tier soon.
I'm stuck at 2B with only Mateo but got this offer: Julio/Sale/4th for Story /8th. What direction would you go if this was your team?
Hard to say without knowing a lot more, but I would try and kick the tires on trading multiple of them for a high value keeper, ideally something that trades 2 to get you a vlad or something.
Try and move either Mullins or Buxton.
I wouldn't make that trade
What time do guys clear waivers on yahoo? Thought it was 3 am
It is, but if a player is not available to pickup then that means he’s already part of a transaction that has not been processed yet. Any players uninvolved in a pending transaction should be available to pick up right at 3am.
Seriously, am I going crazy? In my dynasty flair league, got offered Kirilloff for Ken Waldichuk. Is Kirilloff dying or something? I know he's been hurt but that's a ton of upside for a guy I picked up off waivers like 3 days ago
He just sucks but I’d take that deal for sure and pray he can turn it around
Who would you guys drop: Yepez, Naylor, Hosmer? I have to drop one to activate IL player
Hosmer for me. Voit behind him and his batted ball profile is the worst of the 3
Ok thanks. I might have to drop another later in the week to make room for another pitcher spot. Would you drop Yepez or Naylor?
Probably Yepez. Naylor is hitting the shit out of the ball, nothing fake about that. Yepez is good so far but ultimately probably replaceable
How would you rank these guys?
Blackburn> Anderson> Urquidy> Lorenzen > Clay Holmes
Holmes won’t be the closer ROS and in points leagues you don’t really want someone that isn’t starting or isn’t closing on your team especially over a starter pitcher
Unless it's a holds league
Even than set up men RARELY ever outscore closers or SP’s I’d still not roster them
Blackburn might not get a lot of wins bc the A's suck but if you use QS he's more valuable. Probably say Blackburn > Anderson for best pitcher. Holmes is a RP hard to rank him against SP. elite holds guy though. Urquidy is the worst of the lot.
Garver or Melendez ROS points league?
Garver ROS because Sal will come back and take away playing time from Melendez
Cole Irvin or Johnny Cueto rest of year ?
tough to know what Cueto will look like. he did great vs a stacked Yankees team though. i'd probably bank on Irvin to do better just because of Cueto's injury history and age personally.
Drop Garver for William contreras? Contreras played OF today and batted second so it’s looks like they’re trying to get him regular ABs
Which of these sounds better: trying or getting. The braves are trying to give Contreras regular at bats. Garver is getting regular at-bats at DH for the foreeable future.
Which of these sounds better:
Contreras: 37 AB, 10 R, 6 HR, 9 RBI, 1 SB, .270 BA, and 1.141 OPS
Garver: 92 AB, 9 R, 4 HR, 9 RBI, 0 SB, .207 BA, and .665 OPS
Lol, I really wished I played in your league. I'll take the guy that's hit 31hrs in 93 games and is consistently a top 8 catcher over the unproven guy who has a tiny sample size and is searching for at-bats
It’s 2022, not 2019. Not saying Contreras > Garver, but it’s worth a discussion. Also I’m in first place in my league, but maybe next year bud
keep chasing reddit toys, I'm sure you'll win
any league with Shane baz on the wire is a taco league but have a nice day!
Struggling with how much FAAB to put down on Longoria, out of 1000. Thoughts?
30 T? $10? He's been pretty meh so far
looking to get Castellanos as a buy low possibility, so is Naylor and Bohm a decent offer?
Bohm isn't worth much, especially in a 10 team
Not even close
maybe ill toss in salvy
Probably a little too low as Casty likely a 3 or 4 round pick so it may be closer to players picked in rounds 8 or 9 who are performing to expectations or a little higher.
What kind of SS can I target with Lauer/Wright/Skubal
I have Polanco right now and I need an upgrade there
If you package Wright + Polanco you could get a pretty great return in a points league
I’d shoot for Trea Turner or Francisco Lindor or Bo Bichette (actually has less points than polanco this season)
Not sure if you’ll get one of those 3 or how much an upgrade you’ll get from polanco that is actually worth 1 of those pitchers in such a deep league. Polanco is the 13th best SS and that includes the likes of Suarez, Pena & Estrada who likely won’t outscore Polanco ROS
you posted a different trade ten minutes ago and deleted it after you got responses. can you not do that? the whole point of giving feedback is to help the general community assess player values.
Nah. Doesn’t sound like his secondary stuff has looked that good so far.
I managed to snag him with the #12 waiver spot in a 12 team, so it’s not impossible he slides through.
I got him with a #7 claim in a 14 team league for what it’s worth.
Close or no? I’m gonna offer A for B
mookie is living up to his draft stock, you need to offer something equivalent to a first round pick
Luis Robert or Brandon Woodruff?
Woodruff in points, non points= Robert
Anybody starting Snell tomorrow?
Austin Riley for Julio Rod. Worth considering?
do it for sure. Julio is amazing.
Keeper yes redraft maybe
Give it a month. Jrod has ceiling of an acuna type player
I'd be the one acquiring Julio. I have Riley right now, but have no need of him since I have Jram
And it’s dynasty/keeper?
Take it now.
I hate when you agree to a trade over DM and the person doesn’t respond to the offer you just agree upon. 😡
Trading is easily my most disliked part of the game. Gimme the waiver roulette any day
Trading is my second favorite thing to do besides draft (or win the championship but we don’t do that every year) I played the waiver wire so hard my entire bench is full of undroppable guys (Lauer, Gonsolin, Ward, Perez, etc.) so I need to make a trade in order to back to playing the wire :/
Drop Gurriel Jr. for Julio Rodriguez? 10 team 20 Cat. 10 x 10
Drop Kittredge, at least. I hate dealing with TB's bullpen carousel anyway.
Luzardo would probably be the next drop if there is one, but that's a tough call.
the only reason kittredge is still on the team is that saves is my worst category. other than him i have helsley holmes and barnes
Float him. If he's still there when he comes off the IL, pick him back up. Otherwise, it's not that huge of a loss is it? Closers come and go, it's not even June yet, there will be opportunities.
yeah you right. thanks
Don’t worry buddy I’ll trade you Soto for Lance Lynn
A: Kyle Wright & Kris Bryant
B: Rasmussen & Arenado
B for Nolan
Brendan Donovan or Josh rojas?
A: Lucas Giolito, Bryan Reynolds, Luis Urias
B: Sandy Alcantara and Teoscar Hernandez
I need someone I can move across infield and outfield. At what point does it become absurd to drop Reynolds for either rosario or arraez.
Alternatively, what kind of trade could I get for someone like reynolds right now
H2h, 8 team league
I feel like Reynolds would be okay to drop in an 8 team league.
JRod is my favorite player, every other night he makes me extremely happy
Goodnight you fucks
See you tomorrow you shameless bastard
Should I send Cronenworth for Cobb?
Is A. Chapman droppable in 8 team league?
If anyone is looking for starting pitching help, Aaron Ashby should be worth a look. With Freddy Peralta going to the IL, Ashby should slide into the rotation, and he would be lined up for 2 starts next week; one of which he’ll face the Cubs
Ashby already owned in all of my re draft leagues
Trade trevor rogers for berrios?
Mariners save finally went to 🌊🌍
hopefully scott servais was seated in the splash zone so he knows to keep doing this
is urquidy droppable in 12 teams for roansy?
Soler or Lewis ROS? (Points)
Uhhhh really random one, but in my dynasty flair league, got offered Kirilloff for Ken Waldichuk. Easy accept, right?
Juan Soto came into today batting .338 against fastballs but .086 (3 for 35) vs. breaking balls.
Need hats... for bats.
Christan walker or Eric Hosmer? need to drop one? i’m leaning hosmer
Keep Walker. He's good this year.
Drop Hosmer and ride the hot hand
Bellinger was dropped in our league lol. I’m like last in the waiver claim and don’t need CF but I’m gonna try
Shoot your shot bro, good luck
I should trade J Montgomery for J Winker right
Winker is a good buy low target
Been hearing that for over a month now. Don’t even have to buy anymore. He was dropped in a good amount of leagues. Safeco kills batting avg and hrs. He went from a great batters park to a terrible one. Don’t give up too much for him.
Ty France and Julio would like to have a word with you
France and Julio might just be better players than Winker. Not saying he’s bad. Just saying don’t buy expecting last years numbers.
I did not expect Jeff McNeil to ever have a combo meal game
Drop Bohm for Walker?? Redraft 6x6 ops
Bohm will get you AVG, Runs.. He's likely not going to get many HRs. He's nothing special unless you desperately need a 3b
. Walker has more upside.
Still in disbelief Ketel was dropped in my league
Rodgers worth holding onto or he an easy drop candidate to activate Lewis?
is Jorge solar a everyday player? i’m thinking about picking him up, he’s been good the last two weeks
Yep. Premium spot in the lineup too
Marco Gonzales with that disgusting W
Ugly line, but 2 of his 5 earned runs were scored after he left the game. Didn’t walk anyone, and 6 of his 8 hits allowed were singles. He’s been one of the more unlucky starting pitchers this season, so as far as I’m concerned, he deserved this one
What’s going on with Alex Cobb? We holding?
Only because Cincy is his next matchup
Cincy in Cincy tho. Feel like anything can happen there.
His luck will turn, hold fast
I think he is mostly getting unlucky, fwiw
I'm trying to buy low
Considering offering JoRam + JD Martinez/Arozarena/Meadows for Ohtani + Riley. Thoughts on this trade? Other side is a Cleveland fan, I'm an Angels fan, so that side of things just makes sense.
Is it a daily lineup league and Ohtani has both SP and DH eligibility? If it is, fair. If it’s a weekly lineup league and you have to lock Ohtani into 1 position for the whole week, then I don’t like this trade.
It's a daily lineup league, but only UTIL eligibility. So you'd be looking to get more back on the other line of the trade?
Just traded my Bieber for Fried. Smart move or should I have held out?
Lateral move, probably
Smart. Bieber can’t throw 93 or 94 anymore, and while he’ll rack up Ks vs. bad offenses, not being able to throw a fastball past anyone hurts him. He’s going to walk quite a few guys and get himself in trouble.
Kwan for Cobb?
If you can give Kwan for Cobb absolutely take that. Especially with those league settings
Is Kwan not valuable in my league settings, in comparison to Cobb? Do you mind expanding on your thoughts? 📝
Counting both OPS and SLG devalues Kwan somewhat, he's not a power hitter. Meanwhile you have IP, W, and QS which buffs SPs. That's all I was getting at
Gotcha that makes sense, and it’s supposed to be OBP, that’s my bad. Does that change anything to flip one way or the other?
Yeah OBP vs SLG definitely changes the math on Kwan, but even then I'm just higher on Cobb. Which should probably tell you how I feel about FIP and the other advanced stats.
Kwan's interesting but he's basically Arraez without the multi-eligibility. He hits a lot of singles but doesn't give you any HR or SB. If you're really dying for AVG he's not a bad play alongside guys that give you power and speed, but if you've got AVG and OBP covered then he's just redundant. Meanwhile I think Cobb's rebound is a very safe bet given the peripherals.
Thanks for your thoughts.
Send the Kwan trade he might accept, but if he is smart he probably won’t. You could probably get him for a slightly better player
Would Yandy Diaz or Yadiel Hernandez constitute as a better player? Only other I’d maybe part with would be Whitlock.
I don’t really know much about them so idk
It really depends on what positions he needs. If he is short on pitchers he is gonna cost way more
I need me a catcher, help me pick one. Best out of
I’d take Gary rn and Contreras after Gary slows down
Heim until Contreras secures more playing time. They’re actually in similar situations but Heim is better than Garver and he’s getting more ABs as a result.
Logan Webb for SFG in 2021
26.5% K, 6.0% BB, 60.9% GB
2.72 FIP, 2.79 xFIP
Alex Cobb for SFG in 2022
27.7% K, 6.4% BB, 66.3% GB
2.72 FIP, 2.32 xFIP
my bullpen of bednar/robertson/lopez/pagan had quite a night. 2 wins and 2 saves. bednar was the only one i drafted and it was a late round pick. not paying for saves paying off.
Alex Cobb or Christian Javier?
Alex Cobb for SFG in 2022
27.7% K, 6.4% BB, 66.3% GB
2.72 FIP, 2.32 xFIP
Spencer Torkelson or Andrew Vaugn ROS?
Vaughn for this season
Down vote all you want. Alex Cobb has a 6.25 ERA through 7 starts. Dude's ass.
Just going to leave this here:
Who gives a shit dude
So you don’t care he has the same underlying metrics ass webb but has a era 3 points higher
People who like to look at advanced stats probably
