  1. I like him a lot because of SP eligibility but he’s supposedly going to use the slider less this year. https://www.knbr.com/2021/02/20/new-giants-reliever-wants-to-slightly-back-off-his-dominant-pitch/
  2. Even without knowing the details of your league, how many keepers, etc....you're still gonna look back to this moment and feel the agony of a catastrophically bad decision.
  3. Has had a horrible MLB career so far, 68 innings, 8.07 era, 2.13 whip, -1.5% k-bb. Negative k-bb. Without drawing too many conclusions re the era/whip (korean league quality of bats is less than MLB, even if korean league skews towards offense), these are the numbers he put up: 116.2 IP, 3.01 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 28% K, 6.4% BB, 21.6% K-BB I care about the K-BB% because that may be the first sign that he's improved his control/command and not just beaten up on inferior competition. He will be starting this year for the Mariners. Spring training stats are even more irrelevant than
  4. I’m surprised you are quitting fantasy baseball after this long. Been doing baseball over a decade and football over two decades and can confidently say I will do both until I die. If daily is too much of a grind you can do weekly! Just very surprised, what happened? Fell out of love with the game?
  5. scoreless outing for oberg in return from blood clots. hasn't pitched since 2019 but has a chance to close for rox. https://www.mlb.com/video/scott-olberg-s-scoreless-outing?q=Player%20%3D%20%5B%22Scott%20Oberg%22%5D%20Order%20By%20Timestamp%20DESC&cp=CMS_FIRST harvey injured in baltimore, scott and valdez prob leading chances for saves if he's seriously hurt.
  6. Disagree, this is a blessing for those who haven’t drafted yet. Mild hamstring is like 3 or 4 weeks probably. He might miss a week of season time or less for a draft discount.
  7. good in deep roto 5x5 leagues, less valuable in h2h, less valuable in shallow.
  8. Technicality of words. I think he’s brilliant, but has standalone value no matter whether closer or not. Sure he’s a handcuff too if you want to call it that.
  9. Don't consider devin williams a handcuff, but yeah he's amazing, and if hader gets traded... Think some of the kenley concerns are overblown. In the playoffs i expect the dodgers will play matchups and sometimes use starters to close, but for regular season seems like he's pretty secure. Also even if he were to falter, are you sure it's treinen and not victor g or piss poor extension graterol? bad "closer" who could lose their jobs: bard ---> oberg so many jobs are unsettled at the moment though. while i like chad green a lot, i don't see chapman ever losing his job.
  10. Ottavino and Rodriguez are looking like best two handcuffs at the moment.
  11. None of those have SP eligibility anymore for me. SPRP I have on the radar right now are Seth Lugo and Matt Wisler.
  12. jonathan hernandez ucl sprain, gives leclerc inside track to closer gig, joely rodriguez now a dark horse
  13. Good flyer, great pitcher in 2019, Gary thinks his stuff in spring training is same as 2019.
  14. because i play keeper and dynasty leagues and he's a great pitcher. he also stayed in the game after this happened and continued to pitch. if he's out 3 months like brett anderson was in 2014, he will be back in early June. Seems worth it to me.
  15. buying low or even at slight discount wherever I can
  16. death sentence to punt saves in roto. I like elite middle relievers though.
  17. Pros, can log a lot of innings and an above average era Cons, brutal whip and below average K rate He's an OK fantasy pitcher but not someone I'm excited about. At least he isn't expensive.
  18. Brock you’re on point. This is my absolute favorite type of pitching prospect to go in on - inexpensive, high upside, close to the majors. This is how you end up getting in on the ground floor of the deGroms and Clevingers of the world. If he isn’t great, the opportunity cost is minimal. But this is a good start!
  19. Hi it’s me, I own both of these polished turds in dynasty. Yolo as for risk/reward, yeah they are cheap and have k upside. id rather have bad pitchers who can ring up the Ks than bad pitchers with prospect hype (cough, Dylan cease)
  20. This is the second worst take I've seen on ROTOWORLD/NBC SPORTS EDGE. I couldn't give you #1` because there was a guy who posted a ton in 2019-2020 NBA season about how Lebron James has ruined every franchise he has played for.
  21. Just as insane, he averaged 99 mph last year http://www.brooksbaseball.net/velo.php?player=594798&time=month&startDate=03/30/2007&endDate=02/24/2021&s_type=2
  22. Even with this positive early news, he's been a guy that people in my dynasty league have zero interest in giving anyone of value for...I will be stuck bagholding (or reaping the rewards), it looks like. In my other dynasty and keeper leagues, people appear to be tepid as well, much like the prevailing sentiment ITT.
  23. People hate change. I hated fantrax and didn’t want to learn the new ui/ux in the beginning when we merged over. I was fine with dealing with spreadsheets and weak database. But from personal experience it is worth being thrown in the deep end and griping about things for a couple weeks. Do what you gotta do, def not looking down on people using other platforms for their dynasties. Just think being open to change is a good idea.
  24. Not a redraft player at all and probably overrated in dynasty. Is he gonna keep c with time even? Kelly will be starter this year at C. Varsho is gonna struggle to regular ABs, may start year in AAA.
