  1. I like it a lot for you, honestly. I would take the Acuna side in pretty much every scenario I can imagine.
  2. I agree with txrngr34 on his analysis. I would go with Paxton by a nose, but I do think Bauer is for real. I couldn't blame you in the least for taking the more durable guy, though he is slightly less effective and far more prone to blowups.
  3. Roll with Gattis here. Worst case scenario he sucks, you lose out on very little imo... strong case can be made that those other guys aren't worthy of a roster spot (in some circumstances, especially since you don't benefit from Grandal's strong OBP).
  4. I like Martinez tbh. I mean the dude is a DISASTER in the field, so he's not the kind of guy who's gonna play through massive slumps IMO. But as an end-of-bench guy? Gimme the upside. Or you could take the Bader flier. Thanks for the help on mine.
  5. I'm taking Stripling and Flaherty over both Richards and Mengden.
  6. T Turner Scherzer Sale Cole In certain packages, I can turn Turner into any of these 3 pitchers. Are there any you think are not worth giving up Trea for?
  7. That right there is what I like to call an accept-and-ask-questions-later type of deal. I think you win that handily.
  8. Both are real good but I do lean towards Pivetta too. It's a coin toss tbh.
  9. I agree with this... front-office wise I'd have done the same. I'm not sure how guys like Steph feel about it deep down since his reputation seems to have taken somewhat of a hit (IMO unfairly) as a result. You're totally right though. I just think the acquisition of Durant is the reason why I'm so convinced they'll roll off 3-4 more titles. Without it, they had a chance but it would seem much less a lock and they'd have a few teams battling with them. Still, the team's run itself shouldn't be dinged because of what KD did.
  10. Their legacy to me so far is as one of the best teams (IMO the best team) ever assembled in league history. No team can ever match the Celtics in the 50s in terms of championship dominance, but all things considered, relative to their era this is the best team ever. And it's on pace to be the most impressive run ever. The think that muddies the waters is Durant's move to me, because it was SO atypically cowardly. No matter what anyone says, NOTHING had ever set a precedent for that kind of parity-crippling move in all of sports. He's free to make any decision he's comfortable with
  11. Who would you even trade this dude for, aside from maybe the top handful of guys, lol
  12. That Damon check swing strikeout on a 3-2 count to end the El Duque inning... that and Guillen motioning to the bullpen for the "wide, tall guy" (Jenks) are two moments from that '05 CHW run I won't forget, even though for the most part they carved up those playoffs like a hot knife through butter. In terms of the thread topic: I do think some of the mythos is gone as well, and yes I do think the advances in technology are partially responsible for that, but it's a highly subjective thing.
  13. Hmmm. I tell you this anecdotal story in part to humble brag, and in part because it relates to your situation: I once had a known elite prospect on my roster in a league where we can keep any player forever. The day that prospect was called up in 2012, I was offered Giancarlo Stanton for him 1-for-1. Stanton was already being treated as an elite player, but he had a brutal April in which I think he only hit one bomb and just sucked. His owner was doing what many people would consider "panicking" by offering such a stud player straight-up to me for a guy who never really showed mas
  14. Yeah. And with wins and losses both mattering, you're also kinda doubling down on the importance of having a couple starters who are on good teams (though the RP value increases too with holds and saves). I don't even think you'll necessarily need to draft Miggy early, though certainly there are worse "fliers" to take.
