  1. It's because the team announced a few days ago that he was going to be on the IL to start the season, thus taking out any "guesswork" by Yahoo. Austin Nola was also placed on the IL by Yahoo at the same time due to the report: https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/padres/story/2021-03-29/padres-roster-opening-day-ryan-weathers-trent-grisham-austin-nola
  2. Agreed - the lack of any useful information with respect to a return time frame is really frustrating when evaluating for drafting purposes.
  3. Vlad could certainly be primed for a breakout, but given that you already have 3 excellent long term keepers, I'd take the player that gives you the best chance to win with proven production you can set your watch by in 2021 (particularly in an OPS league) and that's Abreu (beyond the three you mentioned that will likely already be drafted). If he's gone then I'd probably go Seager (assuming Corey), Vlad, then LeMahieu
  4. Abreu/Darvish alone should net you a couple of top 10 overall type prospects, of which there are none coming your way. Add in Lynn and Jansen and it's beyond ridiculous. Easy decline. Casas/Greene would be solid secondary pieces if you can add a few bigger prospect names to the equation. Do you have a list of the other team's prospects?
  5. 1. From my experience, Yahoo will only let you trade draft picks for the following season (not for the upcoming draft and not two seasons from now) and obviously only during the months the game for the current season is open. 2. When trading picks, you must have an equal number of picks being traded on both sides of the deal as the software will not allow one manager to have more (or less) total picks than any other manager. Typically this issue is resolved by one manager including their lowest draft pick(s) for the following season in the deal to balance the picks out. 3. Picks trad
  6. Soto - longevity on his side in addition wanting to steal more bases makes him the ideal keeper for me.
  7. No chance - week 17 only, if at all. You can't go into the playoffs with your biggest star resting multiple weeks in a row and not expect rust, especially when the playoffs are in a single game elimination format. They're also likely to have a bye in the first round for additional rest.
  8. This is what always baffles me about leagues that say "no trade vetoes unless there's collusion". Just as you indicated, you can never prove collusion, ever, unless you were accidentally carbon copied on an email or something (which I've never seen happen in 20 years of playing fantasy). To me, a veto is really simple for two scenarios - first, if a trade clearly benefits one side only while offering absolutely no benefit to the other (either currently or in the future), then it should be vetoed as that goes against the very idea of trading. And second, if a trade clearly has an established to
  9. Without question - it should take several seasons before a prospect with as much promise as Hilliard is deemed to be a career platoon player. His final season in AAA he actually hit LHP better than RHP (.268 to .259) in 168 AB's to 332 AB's respectively. Give him a chance to prove/disprove himself.
  10. And ironically, he wasn't even in the original lineup last night - he only entered it due to Tapia being scratched at the last minute with a minor elbow issue. If Hilliard and Hampson could start every game, my guess is the organization and fantasy owners would both benefit. Stop messing around with the development of young, talented players.
  11. Right now it probably depends on Tapia's status. The only reason Hampson led off last night was because Tapia was a late scratch with a minor elbow issue. He was originally hitting 6th and then moved up after Tapia was scratched with Hilliard entering the lineup and hitting 8th. Hampson was 2 for 4 with two runs and a walk, but Hilliard out-shined him by going 2 for 5 with a home run, steal and two runs. Tapia led off for six straight games prior to the scratch, so I would think that only if Tapia needs to miss more games would Hampson get another crack at everyday playing time and/or leading
  12. Biggio - you can dream on K-Rob's ceiling all day long, but give me the player that can clearly help you win right now (and should remain in a stacked lineup for years to come).
  13. I'm a big fan of Groshans - Vlad already moved to 1B and Groshans will eventually join a stacked lineup in a great offensive environment. Solid plate approach, plus power - and flying just a little under the radar in many dynasty leagues (depending on the level of competition). He'd be my first choice followed by Gorman for the power upside. Good luck!
