  1. MIL situation: Hader is likely already gone and the frenzy happened for Barnes, but keep an eye on Albers. He put together a very nice 2017 and saw time in high leverage situations. Sure he's not a young and sexy FA add but he may get the bulk of opps as he's the veteran of the bunch. Jeffress walks too many for my taste and Jennings is too hittable.
  2. Always play your categories so yes, trade the SPs for high end hitters but maybe hang on to your ace unless something crazy comes your way on the block. http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/699809-back-at-it-after-5-years-need-team-eval-whir/?tab=comments#comment-7787893

  4. Anderson is red hot right now but I'd go with Martinez over the full season. http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/699809-back-at-it-after-5-years-need-team-eval-whir/?tab=comments#comment-7787893
  5. He (and others like him: Hicks, Glasnow, Lugo, Peacock) have immense value in H2H, especially if your league counts HLDs or K/9. 2 mid-RPs slotted as SP when starters aren't going can provide the equivalent of five innings of no-run high-K ball. Why wouldn't you want that for a free agent pickup?
  6. I'd keep Galvis as Owings may be harder pressed for playing time when Souza returns (which is soon). Kennedy is the odd man out here so I'd drop him. And it is too soon to give up on Alfaro, but keep a close eye on his playing time and the other Cs you mentioned. http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/699809-back-at-it-after-5-years-need-team-eval-whir/?tab=comments#comment-7787893
  7. Yes to both. Reasons for taking the first are outlined above. I'd do the second as well as your punting saves and QS is a counting stat. Having that staff means you should plow through any random injuries that come your way. Gallo is a one trick pony and you've got two guys to fill that spot, not counting Myers upon his return. Thanks for the help with mine!
  8. Green, Hader, and Devenski should be on your team ASAP. Glasnow is nice too as he qualifies at SP. I'd like to add all four, though as RAZ mentions above, you have a bit of a logjam at SP. What is the trade situation looking like; can you deal 2-3 SPs relatively easily? I'd dangle the whole staff and see who bites. http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/699809-back-at-it-after-5-years-need-team-eval-whir/?tab=comments#comment-7787893
  9. Then I'd keep Minter and drop Glasnow. Minter will get more HLDs and is in a better position to vulture SVs and/or take over closing duties. I like Hicks more than both given his upside.
  10. Wow, this trade helps you immensely. The only thing to consider is you trade one keeper for two. As I see it, your five keepers would be: Altuve, Arenado, Blackmon, Kershaw, Scherzer. Whereas previously they would be: Altuve, Arenado, Blackmon, Harper, and ? I think going from Haper and ? to Kershaw/Scherzer is a huge win.
  11. I see. Does your league count HLDs? Also, if you wouldn't mind:
  12. Hey all, so I've just returned from a five-year fantasy baseball hiatus and drafted the following. I'd appreciate any feedback as I get back into the swing of things; please leave a link and I will respond likely within 24 hrs. 16 team, Yahoo, H2H, non-keeper Cats: AB, R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, K, PO, A, E, AVG, OBP //// IP, APP, W, L, CG, SV, ER, HR, BB, K, HLD, TB, ERA, WHIP, K/9 C: A Avila (C - Ari) 1B: P Goldschmidt (1B - Ari) 2B: J Panik (2B - SF) 3B: N Castellanos (3B/OF - Det) SS: A Simmons (SS - LAA) OF: A Benintendi (OF - Bo
  13. Minter. You can start Hicks and Glasnow at SP but Minter requires an RP spot. Given that you have been stockpiling RPs, dropping Minter will create flexibility whereas dropping either of the others will do the opposite.
  14. No. Colome is the closer and Barnes might be the closer. Why drop a sure thing for a flier, especially if the upside of the flier isn't insane?
  15. In a vacuum I think you lose this trade, but in context I think you win. Having confidence in your starters in vital and being forced to bench guys who are producing due to a surplus is hard.
  16. I'm keeping a close eye on this guy. Given that Peacock is owned in most leagues, we're looking at Hicks/Glasnow/Gsellman at the moment for SP qualified RPs (though Lugo is back and Delgado may be back in a couple weeks). No, he's a candidate to return to the rotation.
  17. Definitely not. #1 waiver claims should be saved for the moronic moment when someone panics and drops a very good player in a slump, not for a guy who would be your seventh starter.
  18. This is a big buy low by you, and given your RP situation I'd say you come out pretty nicely.
  19. A hold is a totally different category than a save and a single pitcher cannot accumulate both stats in a single game. As per wikipedia, a Hold is: So there are closers who get saves and there are mid-RPs who get holds. If you are playing in a league with both you may want to wait until the end rounds of your draft to grab your hold guys. You can sort your stats by holds for last year to see who did well, but be sure to pay attention to their ratios and Ks as well as a lot of the best mid-RPs were often better than lower-tier closers.
  20. Not in a keeper, no. You do have a surplus of quality SS though, so I would consider working on this trade to unload one for sure.
  21. Glasnow or Gsellman? I have Glasnow right now with Hicks in my 2 SP spots, but am concerned about his control. He's walked 4 in 5 innings so far and his numbers historically don't reassure me that this isn't how it's going to be going forward.
  22. For standard 5x5 I don't think Panik has a lot of value. I play in a 16 team league that counts AB, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, K, PO, A, E, AVG, OBP and he's my starting 2B. I drafted him with the 14th pick of the 17th round as he's a great contact hitter with an excellent eye who walks a lot and doesn't strike out much at all. He's hitting at the front of the Giants lineup with McCutchen, Posey, Longoria, Belt, Pence, and Crawford behind him. Baring serious injury I expect something like: 550 AB, 100 R, 15 HR, 60 RBI, 5 SB, .300 AVG. Skeptics can look at this as a ceiling,
