  1. The owners love expanded playoffs because they think they'll increase revenue and allow them to spend less on player salaries. Why would a mid or small market team spend the money required to build a 95 win team when an 85 win team will also put them in a crapshoot, best of three series? Why would they pay somebody like Anthony Rizzo the money he deserves when a guy like Eric Thames will play for 20% of the wages and get you 80% of the wins? Etc. This move would probably not hurt the earnings of the megastars, but it would be an enormous salary compressor for everybody else. From a f
  2. JFC. What a waste of a second round pick.
  3. Of your remaining options, I'd keep only Mercado for his SB upside. Schwarber and Moustakas should be cheaper at market value than at your current keeper values. Lynn is not worth much, and Dozier is a dime-a-dozen kind of player, almost completely interchangeable with the Justin Smoaks of the world who are always on the waiver wire.
  4. Are you really telling me not to keep Walker Buehler for $11? Hard to see any rationale for such a decision, but I appreciate the input.
  5. I'm with the consensus for Eloy. He's a more versatile player in my opinion - I'd choose him even if the costs were equal, which they aren't in your case.
  6. In my league, we keep up to five players, each controllable for up to three additional years after the year in which they were drafted. Each year you keep a guy, he costs $5 more than the previous year. I've got seven great keeper candidates and I need to narrow them down to the five I'll actually keep. We play H2H weekly matchups with daily lineup adjustments. We use 6x6 scoring with AVG, HR, R, RBI, OPS, SB; ERA, WHIP, QS, SV, HD, K. Here are the seven in contention, with cost for 2020 and remaining years of control. Christian Yelich: $45, 2 years Anthony Rendon: $35, 3 y
  7. It seems like pure folly to me to think that there are 19 guys one would rather have than Rendon entering next season. To me, he's a borderline top five pick, and very likely top ten. Yelich, Trout, Bellinger, and Acuna are the only four I'd place clearly above him. I think he's in the next tier with Freeman, Arenado, Turner, Betts, Lindor, Bregman, and Soto, and you can make a case for Rendon as the best of that group. He should go long before pick 20 in almost every league.
  8. Yeah, it seems to be fixed now. Still, very frustrating and a major problem for fantasy managers who have to make their changes before work because their jobs don't let them spend all day messing around on the internet like mine does.
  9. ESPN not allowing lineup changes this morning. I make the move, and get an error message that says "Transaction cannot be executed by this host. Try again." WTF?! How are they so bad at this?
  10. Is there going to be any baseball in New York today?
  11. As a Brewers fan, I seriously can't see them sending Hiura back down again. Not only is he their second best hitter right now, but it's crucial for his development to be seeing major league pitching every day. Stearns may have badly misjudged their pitching this year, but he's smart enough to realize that the team's future depends on Hiura developing as best he can. There's also a steadily rising probability that the Brewers realize they're going nowhere this year, trade Moustakas, and ride out the rest of the season with Shaw at 3B and Hiura at 2B.
  12. Lyles just had a total meltdown down two outs away from the QS. GRRRRRRRRR.
  13. He's pitching in gradually higher leverage situations, and he's pitching well despite giving up a few ERs. The velocity is back and so is his swagger on the mound. I expect him to get a decent number of save opportunities starting in June, though I don't think Counsell will completely revert to last season's roles. He will do his best to avoid using Hader on consecutive days, and that's where Jeffress might get some chances.
  14. I don't even care about steals anymore, I just want him to get a hit every now and then!
  15. Yelich bomb, totally crushed. His swing is just incredible.
