  1. I lean towards Gleyber ... he's essentially 4 years younger in a way better stadium and doesn't have to hit behind a pitcher after his 1st AB.
  2. As a competitive dynasty owner I wouldn't trade Kershaw straight up for Benintendi. Its considerable if you're rebuilding but even then I think a competing owner pays more for Kershaw than Benintendi.
  3. KA is losing some production to dare I say an emerging Mike Williams?
  4. CMC was #1 overall, Odell was a 2nd rounder, Aaron Jones a 4th rounder. I'm not sure where the other guys went off hand.
  5. Yeah a reversal seems like the easiest way to deal with this. Just can't let this become an all the time thing. If you're only having 1-3 trades a year and you have to reverse just as many that would be messed up lol. But better reverse this trade now rather than give one team the thought of their season being ruined and another team a clear advantage on everyone else. Where were the other guys drafted at?
  6. Unless there is some clear history of this happenimg. I'm sure there's more context but if those are the basic facts then I'd say yeah obviously reverse it as it already looks like a near collusion trade.
  7. You obviously just reverse the trade if it wasn't an intentional trade. When does the number 1 overall pick get traded the day after the draft? The entire point of a trade is 2 people agree to a trade if someone here is saying that their phone put it through then you have to go off of that especially when the trade looks that bad for them.
  8. Maybe Puig, Kemp, Wood, and Farmer will help them get back on track.
  9. Whitley, Josh James, and McCullers would basically be the worst case scenario top 3 for Houston and that honestly wouldn't be all that bad. But yeah not likely a World Series winning pitching staff. As you stated Whitley can't be counted on for a bunch of post season innings at this point in his career. He's already gotten injured. But even so they have some time to make some moves. Also I read somewhere Verlander has an option for 22 mil in 2020 if he reaches certain incentives over the life of his contract. So The Stros may still have Veralnder in 2020.
  10. I never said there weren't warts and risks to him. But if he does carry over that type of production to Advanced A and/or AA next year he would then find himself probably in the top 100.
  11. The deeper the minor league system the less importance proximity becomes. Also Ben Zobrist is another example 24 in A ball (way better K%).
  12. 22 isn't too old for A ball in generally this is especially so when it's your first full season in the minors. Also note that he was quickly promoted to Advanced A last season before injuries (oblique twice I believe?). He was basically unhittable in A ball.
  13. Roberto Ramos could end up being a big time sleeper too. I too would rather have him than Golden. Higher in the minors, still bad but better K%, and even more power. For what it's worth both Golden and Ramos are owned in my 400 prospect league (I own neither of them).
  14. If you got 500 minor leaguers Golden should be owned. I'm sure most of the teams in your league have 3-4 prospects they could get rid of for Golden.
  15. Yes Lowe was a pick up but many dynasty owners saw him but passed up due to his age (granted he's really only 1 grade older and a few months older than Golden). I was the one who picked him up in 2 of my 3 deep dynasties and I was on the fence and took an extra week or 2 to pull the trigger cause of his age. While I don't disagree with your logic of taking lottery tickets on more unknown elements and younger players. Vlad, Eloy, Tatis, and Franco all were elite international prospects. In a draft situation those guys would be long gone before you drafted a guy like Golden. Vl
  16. Yeah this is a pretty good outlook here. Snell and Gleyber is a pretty expensive price but it's for Lindor. Who knows in 3 years Snell + Gleyber is probably clearly worth more than Lindor but right now that's probably what it would take to get Lindor.
  17. I too like Rangel Ravelo, from a great highschool (produced Bucky Dent and Charlie Hough among other MLB talents). But even "reverse engineer" Joey Meneses. The dude was in Advanced A ball at 23 OPSing .625 are you honestly going to tell me that you think being 1 level higher makes up for OPSing 300 points lower? It doesn't I'll take the guy one level down hitting better just about every time. Now I do understand we are more so valuing Meneses at what he did last year in the International League which no doubt was impressive enough to warrant some fantasy thought at the very
  18. A few things. I am not saying McKay or Pavin Smith are going to be fantasy hitting stars (McKay looks like the writing is on the wall and will be a pitcher). I'm just pointing out that Golden isn't as far off as the "elite" players out of that same draft. A few things to further a somewhat comp of Tommy Pham. Pham never had the type of power Casey Golden is showing. Which we all know has a much higher fantasy ceiling than say speedy lead off guy. A lot of people passed on the likes of Brandon Lowe cause he was "too old" as well. Bregman, Benitendi, Happ they all
  19. Casey Golden turned 24 after the season. So he was 23 last year. He was a 4 year college player drafted in the same draft class as Brendan McKay, Keston Hiura, Pavin Smith. McKay and Smith finished 2018 in Advanced A so only one level above. Keston played the first 1/3 of the season in Advanced A and then finished out in AA. So if Golden is in Double A before the season's half over he won't be far behind the elite "players" of his draft. Albeit he is a year older than they are. So while he doesn't have the most desirable pedigree / path to the majors and I understa
  20. Yes we should see some Bo next year at the major league level. He is a huge talent,
  21. Yeah but does it make sense for them to make a trade that is so out of line with reality solely based on the fact that they are out of it? There is 0 risk for the bottom team and trading should trade and share risk. Just because you are out of it you shouldn't be able to give away your entire team for 1 guy catapulting a player from 5th place to 1st. Also they said this is a roto league which it is so much easier to project the standings in roto. Where I think the problem lies is the OP is saying he could have gotten those guys for less than he paid for but he wanted
