    In H2H SB‘s aren’t really worth much, even in a cats league. If you have a player who helps in every category and also does in SB‘s then sure, but not if his only real value is SB‘s. Starting pitching is key in H2H.


    Cole, DeGrom, Bieber are locks.  Bregman too. That leaves you with Olson, Ryu, Mondesi, Marte. Ryu is too injury prone and is a major problem in a H2H league due to this. His fastball velocity is on decline too. Mondesi is mostly worthless (see what I wrote above). That leaves you with Olson and Marte. Olson has terrible contact but has elite power, Marte peaked last year but us solid all-around. I‘d base this on round value and just go with Marte.


    Thanks for the help. I was actually thinking Mondesi provides multi cat help in R, 3B, SB and also some power. Maybe I need to go back and re-assess. But I see what you mean about the SB value in H2H. Thx again.

    Alvarez and it’s not even close.

    Not even close? Rendon, they guy that has put up MVP type numbers in the last two seasons and is one of the best hitters in the game? Not sure we are talking about the same player. Yes, theres a risk numbers will go down in LAA, but he will still hit. Theres also a risk that alvarez numbers will go down is his sophmore year. Or that he might not hit without knowing what’s coming. ;)

    Bogaerts, Glasnow, Meadows, McNeil, Chapman, and Muncy. Great value for the rounds.

    I would do this as well, but swapping Mcneil for Luis Castillo. IMO Castillo is a stud and great value in Rd 9 and Cincy should be a lot better this year.

  4. Buehler, Bo and Robert are absolute MUST KEEP for you. I personally would go with Bieber as the last keeper. While I agree that in Rd 8 is not a great no brainer, I like having solid SPs and my leagues value SPs very high. Cant go wrong with Hiura over Bieber though, it all depends on your strategy.

  5. Yes, I would absolutely do this trade. Goldy should perform closer to his old self in his second season in STL. he could be a one of the top offensive players in MLB with good power and rbi numbers combined with good avg and obp/ops. Rare combination these days.

  6. I would take Alvarez. At the end of the season he mentioned that the plan was for him to play OF this year. While that might not be completely accurate, I think theres a very good chance he’ll be OF eleg. I like Bo too, but I think Alvarez could carry a team. There are not many power guys that hit for a good avg/opb

    These are easy for me, and based on value alone.  Like Hootie once said, its not about names all the time but VALUE.  

    Mondesi, Bregman, and Marte are absolute locks.  Insane value at rounds 19, 20, 22 for those 3.

    The other 2 are Cole and Bieber.  Why keep DeGrom in round 2 when you can just draft another great player there.  You wont get the caliber of player of a Bieber, who is just a notch below DeGrom, in the 9th round.  So those 5 are easy choices for me.

    Thanks a lot. It definitely makes a lot sense. Im struggling mainly because I love the idea of having two studs with ridiculous K/9 numbers in the top of my rotation. But I get it, value wise, doesnt make sense to get Degrom at 2 when I could potentially still get him there in the draft. Only if I knew what pick I had in the draft before deciding keepers. Thats would help me a lot. Thanks again for the help.

  8. I would go with this. 


    T. Turner


    J. Abreu




    I really like abreu this year. He has always been a good and consistent hitter and with a much better lineup he’ll have a lot more chances to drive runs in and be motivated. 

    Help with mine?

    I would say Cole, deGrom, Bregman, Mondesi, and Marte

    These were the ones I had initially. Now bringing back Bieber and Olson as options. With the feedback received, now Thinking Marte is a strong candidate for keeper # 4 with cole, bregman and mondesi. That would leave Degrom, Bieber and Olson (A’s) for the last spot. Or Marte, Degrom, Bieber and olson to pick two. Really not sure.

    I’d go Cole, Bieber, Mondesi, Bergman and Marte.

    Thanks a lot. After last season, Im really considering Marte as a keeper. He was a beast and at last round keeper, risk is very low. I would be set in the IF with a lot of flexibility. I just dont know if I can do Marte over Degrom with having bregman and mondesi. Those are the kind of thoughts Im struggling with. Really appreciate your inputs.
