  1. Agreed, if you can make up at least some of the loss from the waivers I think Chapman and Abreu will be solid. Once the Yankees get rolling Chapman is going to bounce back. His numbers have looked good outside spring so far.
  2. I get: Arenado, Lamahieu, Springer, and Snell I give: Yelich, Bogaerts, Reynolds, Ynoa So look, I know at face value Ynoa and Reynolds seem like an easy give. My thought is both of them are actually playing well and I'm currently sitting second overall in this roto keeper league. Pitching is my soft spot for sure, but I'm giving up the 2 best players in the trade and Arenado, Lamahieu, and to a lesser extent Snell may all be past their prime now. Am I buying in to a sinking ship? I'd rather be a year early than a year late when it comes to trading cornerstone players. Wha
  3. For a Dynasty league, I would definitely take that offer. You've got an embarrassment of riches on offence, and adding Bellinger to that only deepens the lake. Take that and make it a trade spot for an elite pitcher or 2 great ones. Trade someone like Arenado to someone who wants to bet on his continued elite status next year, maybe you'll be the one out on time.
  4. 13 Team Roto Keeper League (came in with 4 keepers, changed to 5 keepers for end of this year): TRADE #1 (converting 1 keeper into 2 keepers) Give: Yoan Moncada, Xander Bogaerts, Edwin Diaz, Blake Snell, 2nd Round Pick Got: DJ LeMahieu, Trea Turner, Corey Knebel, Dakota Hudson, 1st Round Pick TRADE #2 (converting DJ into consistency for Keeping) Give: DJ LeMahieu, Shane Greene, Gregory Soto, Pablo Lopez, 1st Round Pick (acquired above), 15th Round Pick Get: Nolan Arenado, Sean Manaea, Will Smith, Hunter Harvey, 3rd Round Pick, 9th Round Pick Rig
  5. TLDR: I am playing for bottom 5 lottery for draft position this year so I don't care about anything here other than future value. We had 4 keepers last year, I kept Yelich, Soto, Baez, and Bogaerts. This year we are going up to 5 keepers. I will not keep a pitcher. Have traded Bogaerts to pick up Turner and LeMahieu, now I'm being offered LeMahieu and a first round pick (I have 2) for Arenado and a 3rd round pick. I think I'm happy with Soto/Yelich/Baez/Turner despite the double SS overlap, just not sure about DJ. Last season was his first playing for NY but he's been tearing it up
  6. Unfortunately if you need the help, yes, then you need the help. You could jettison Mallex (probably what I would do) instead if you have the stomach for it. One-trick guys that bring a sub-mendoza average aren't my jam, but I understand the hype around his ceiling. I used to be a believer too.
  7. Tried for Josh Bell, it was the best he had to offer. Still not great, but really I'm just passing away two guys I don't want to keep for a top 20 player next year. I might just have to trade him away again next year 😅
  8. I would say that depends on your needs. Gamel has a bit more RBI upside being in the middle of the lineup on a team that can get on base, when he plays. Dickerson is at the top of the lineup, but how long will SF keep scoring runs? My bet is on Gamel's success lasting longer so long as MW seems to want to keep mixing and matching their players in the field, but betting on either long-term probably is not a win so plan accordingly. Also, don't pick up Pujols that guy is running on dust and batting a nasty .156. You don't want that on your team.
  9. TLDR: I am playing for bottom 5 lottery for draft position this year so I don't care about anything here other than future value. We had 4 keepers last year, I kept Yelich, Soto, Baez, and Bogaerts. This year we are going up to 5 keepers. I will not keep a pitcher. Roster: C - Mitch Garver 1B - Max Muncy 2B - Starlin Castro 3B - Yoan Moncada SS - Javier Baez OF - Juan Soto OF - Christian Yelich OF - Mark Canha UTIL - Brandon Nimmo UTIL - Ryan McMahon UTIL - Xander Bogaerts I also have Snell as a pitcher. I am
  10. Roto League, as far as I can tell standard stats. We have 4 keepers, I am for sure keeping Yelich and Soto. I have Bogaerts, Baez, and Ketel Marte as my other keepers. I'm thinking this is an obvious Bogaerts/Baez but my heart wants to believe KM wasn't a fluke. My brain doesn't buy it though - anyone else think there's a world where dropping Baez would be right? Imo, last season was an injured fluke for Baez and this season he should be back to .290+ 30/20 power/speed. PS: don't worry about pitchers, aside from maybe one or two at the very top I will never keep a pitcher in a r
  11. I have now traded Freeman, Aquino, and my 8th round pick for Soto and a 7th round pick. My lineup stands at C - d'Arnaud 1B - Hosmer 2B - Hiura 3B- JRam SS - Marte OF - Yelich, Choo, Mallex Smith Util - Bogaerts, Puig, VenMeter Bench - Arenado, Soto, Rosario Now for keepers it looks like: Hiura, JRam, Marte, Yelich, Bogaerts, Arenado, and Soto - so JRam, Yelich, Soto, X? Will Bogaerts keep growing, or is Arenado's safe floor still too high? I'd love to take Hiura over them but I think that's a touch risky for me.
  12. Suggest you keep both over Paddack and save yourself 2 bucks on a risky gamble. I haven't seen enough from him to think he's going to pay off significantly more than either of the other 2, certainly not Hiura.
  13. That's actually by design. Given the juiced ball era and how badly pitching has been getting beat up, I'm personally of a mind that positional keepers far outweigh anything I can get from any pitcher - barring an extreme gap in actual skill. I watch the peripheral stats and pick up guys off the waiver when they show life and ride them unless they go sideways, and that has worked out for a couple of seasons now. Age is really the big concern for me. Freeman is turning 30 and Arenado 29, so this is really where production should start curtailing. It might not happen as fast as with others s
  14. Yes, I'm sitting around 183 and the next closest is 166 and we're not fighting for points directly. I broke free from the pack about a month in and haven't looked back thanks to a crazy good draft (Ketel Marte, Luis Castillo, Josh Hader, a few others). 1) I'd look to upgrade my draft position or something, but really this is about only being able to keep 4 guys and trying to get value out of losing the 5th. I feel like I can drop a keeper right now in exchange for future value and not risk losing 1st overall (cash league, so it matters if I'm wrong - but I don't think I am). I have to giv
  15. Yes, that's more or less how I would approach it. I know Samardzija has been pitching well but his quality of opponent hasn't been that stellar and he could get blown up. If you're not willing to sit him and play Civale and watch Tanaka then I would definitely stay safe and sit both. On the upside, Tanaka has been getting lit up lately (except against the Jays, but I'm pretty sure a little league player could handle that lineup without Vlad) - so there's a chance you'll see right there you don't need the help.
