  2. I wouldn't be too worried about it. Take the deal and be happy. It isn't outrageously bad to where a veto or something would need to be brought into the equation.
  3. I like the Strahm move, and I agree with the above poster. Swap Alonso for Senzel and McMahon for Voit. A couple solid moves there for you.
  4. For me it would be Acuna/Bregman I go with at the turn, and would eye pitching at the 3/4. Tons of upside with those two picks. As for Eloy I think in a competitive league you are probably talking around where Robles is going. So 8-10 most likely. If you can get him later that's even better.
  5. For now I would just drop Givens for Strop or Strickland. I don't hate any of the other guys on your bench enough to drop for any of the listed FAs, and would just ride it out to start the year. Other than that, you offense is spectacular. High end talent everywhere, although you're probably relying on Villar for most of your steals. Which may be fine in another steal-starved season. Pitching could end up needing some work, as I'd be pretty scared with the injury risk from a lot of those guys. Could definitely be an issue for you. I might deal a guy like Carp for another pitcher. Good luck!
  6. Offense is solid. Balanced and will contribute across the board. Pitching I do think you are 1-2 mid-tier guys away from making it pretty good. You have a solid start with your rotation, and I like a couple of the later guys, but as you mentioned earlier you'll need to find a couple guys during the year, so best of luck with that
  7. Hey all, just trying to see where I'm at going into the season. Any areas I lack? Moves you think I should make?

  8. Correa, Marte, Rosario, Upton, and Hand for me
  9. You have 4 killer bats already. You'll need the arms to stay above the rest. Noah/Bauer quite easily.
  10. I agree with Vlad/Bellinger. Lots of great values there but I think those two provide a good balance of current production and potential.
  11. I like it. I think for having the hitting you do, you did well on drafting pitching too. I like your middle of the rotation arms in Hendricks/Piv/Freeland/Rodon/McHugh to go with the high end starters. I'm good with chasing saves, and you should be more than set for speed with Turner/Mondesi. Good looking team.
  12. As mentioned the offense is stellar, but there is just not enough pitching to win you a 10 team league there. I think you'll have to make some trades AS WELL as staying active on the wire. Good news is that in a shallow 10 team there should be some serviceable options you can find. I'd start with dealing an OF for an arm.
  13. Hey all, just looking to make some potential roster moves before they start counting against my weekly limit. 1) What two potential closers would you want out of Alvarado, Barnes, Strop, or Brasier? I have Barnes/Strop currently but am thinking about making a move. Morrow is available too if that influences your decision. 2) Do you prefer D. Rodriquez or Strahm? I know Strahm is the hot add currently so thinking about jumping on that bandwagon. Categories and team below, and also in my signature. 12 team, 5 keeper (4 Years), H2H. 2 pickups per week.

  14. I've found every time I go into a draft saying "I'll get this guy, then grab this guy, then my team will look like this!" I end up missing on many of those targets, and scrambling. As mentioned you need a backup plan for sure. Even if it's just as simple as having 3-4 targets per draft pick and adjusting during the draft if needed.
  15. Buehler easily for me. Young stud pitcher at a nothing cost. Good luck!
  16. Yep I do that. McCullers should be better than Stroman for the future. Add on a prospect, saving salary, and not much of a loss this season? Done.
  17. I wouldn't be overthinking it. JDM, Machado, Altuve for sure. Then you need pitching, so I stick with Kershaw and Stras. That's a hell of a start to a team.
  18. Hey guys! Getting back into the baseball season, had my draft tonight. Was a big draft as we keep players for 4 years, and this is our 5th season so all of the year 1 keepers had to go back in. After that the draft was pretty normal. So I'm going to list the pick I used on each player, but keep in mind that looks strange for the first two rounds because of the quality of players that went back in. 12 teams, 5 keepers (4 years) Categories: R, HR, RBI, SB, OBP, SLG /////// IP, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP My Team: (Draft began with pick number 61) C Sanchez (Keeper) 1B Bellinger (Keeper) 2B Moncada (144th overall) 3B Bregman (Keeper) SS Correa (73rd overall) OF Acuna (Keeper) OF Bryant (72nd overall) OF Eaton (145th overall) UTIL M. Cabrera (168th overall) UTIL D. Santana (240th overall) SP Buehler (Keeper) SP Bumgarner (96th overall) RP Vizcaino (192nd overall) RP Strop (241st overall) P Barnes (271st overall) P Tanaka (97th overall) P Hendricks (120th overall) P Happ (121st overall) BE Arrieta (169th overall) BE McHugh (227th overall) BE Wacha (254th overall) BE D. Rodriguez (264th overall) BE An. Sanchez (265th overall) My thoughts are that there is a lot of injury risk with my hitters, and I'll need a good number of bounce back seasons, but the upside is massive. And for pitching I reached for the guys that I wanted, but I think my pitching looks pretty good because of it. What do you guys think? Leave your links below if you'd like. Thanks!
  19. Fair enough! I definitely think my RBs are lacking a bit but I was trying to not fully get caught with drafting positionally and to just pick value. I also am not a huge fan of the 2/3 turn this year and think going WR/WR was my best option at the time and those were the BPAs. Thanks for the feedback! Thank you! I will probably rotate the Chubb spot if need be this summer. I think that'll give me a little more flexibilty. Appreciate the response I think I am going to explore dealing one of Jeffery/DT for a RB and that'll give me a deeper team since I have no issues starting Fuller/Davis when injuries/bye weeks arrise, and it's some Mixon insurance.
  20. Thanks for the advice! I'll definitely look into San Fran I just thought with so much time left until the season starts I was best off running an extra bench spot for the time being sacrificing either K/DEF to do that. I'll keep them in mind for sure!
  21. Hey guys! This was my first team of the season and I'm wondering what you think. My initial regret is taking Brees high when similar QBs can be drafted later, but I think I can live with that. Any picks you didn't like? Picks you did? Moves you think I should make? 10 Team Yahoo Standard (0.5 PPR) QB Brees (7.01) WR Evans (2.10) WR Adams (3.01) RB Gurley (1.01) RB Mixon (4.10) TE Walker (9.01) W/R/T Jeffery (5.01) K Butker (15.01) DEF -stream- BE D. Thomas (6.10) BE Mack (8.10) BE Fuller (10.10) BE Thompson (11.01) BE Johnson Jr (12.10) BE C. Davis (13.01) BE Chubb (14.10) Thanks for responding, and leave your links below
  22. Pretty embarassing stuff from Weaver tonight. Walking Jesse Winker on 4 pitches with the bases loaded.
  23. Rosario hits 3 Homers and walks off the game. He has been spectacular. Put some positivity in this chat
  24. Yep I definitely this this is fair enough and if anything you likely come out on top. Worth a shot.
  25. No harm in giving the proposed a shot. I'm a big fan of Eaton and he'd be a very valuable piece with insane run potential. I think it would benefit your team for sure. Good luck!
