Recommended Posts

Since most leagues are probably winding down their regular season in the next month or so, I thought it would be fun to discuss everyone's personal best and worst of the 2019 season (to date).

 

Best Draft Pick:  Brantley (108th overall) or Choo (277th overall)

Worst Draft Pick: Goldschmidt (13th overall) or Hanigar (85th overall)

Best Add:  Lance Lynn

Worst Drop: Danny Santana

Best Trade:  L.Castillo/B.Reynolds for DJ LaMahieu/W.Miley

Worst Trade: Brantley for Bumgarner early in the year (needed SP help and was nervous of the Brantley injury risk)

Best pick: L. Castillo 13th round (don’t remeber pick) 

worst pick: Bryce Harper at the turn in the first (man he’s awful) 

Best add: Devers (by a mile)

worst drop: tatis (I have story and Correa, didn’t think I needed him when he hit the IL) 

Best trade: Gleyber for Kris Bryant (KB been hot and cold though, I don’t think that’s a clear obvious winner) 

worst trade: Moustakas for Flaherty (flaherty has been better the last few weeks at least, kicked myself for 2 months straight over this)

Best Draft Pick: Hyun-Jin Ryu 130th overall (effectively 160th overall after keepers). L. Castillo at #91 and Morton at #80 are honourable mentions.

Worst Draft Pick: Luis Severino 20th overall (effectively 50th overall after keepers). JoRam at #1 overall and Vlad at #10 weren't looking great for awhile either, but have recently turned it around.

Best Add: Josh Bell, for most of the season anyway. Honourable mentions to Alex Colome (shallower league, but still about 25 RP held) and Yu Darvish (picked up before last few starts).

Worst Drop: H-J Ryu, dropped when he was hurt early on. Drafting Severino locked up my only IL slot.

Best Trade: N/A - No trades yet. Working on a deal that could move Severino + picks for Nola though (keeper league).

Worst Trade: N/A - No trades yet.

Drafted Kepler and Eduardo Escobar late. In a 16 team keeper league that normally would add pretty good depth. Picked up Hunter Dozier and Montas early (Montas still near team lead in Ws... lol)

Problem is my 2 key keepers were Stanton and Altuve...

Also lost Olson early on. Lost Carrasco. Piscotty also had cancer.

Wheeler and Nola mostly sucked early on.

Best Draft Pick:  since it's a dynasty league and we only draft previously un-owned no real way to know though the Xavier Edwards pick has potential. If I go back to last years initial draft I like Josh Hader in the 9th round. 

Worst Draft Pick: TBD (going back to last year's draft I'd say Domingo Santana round 2)

Best Add:  Dwight Smith, not because he is a star, but I traded him in a deal for Taylor Rogers

Worst Drop: None I really regret, but the worst is probably Joe Kelly. Not really losing much sleep

Best Trade:  Lance Lynn for a fourth round NPD pick

Worst Trade: (prior to the season) Brandon Lowe for David Robertson

Best Draft Pick: Moncada at 144

Worst Trade: 10th round pick for Strahm and Hill. I no longer have either of those guys.

In 2nd, team in first and I made similar moves in the preseason - teams who were probably not going to contend in 2019 with OF who had 1 year left at value price were looking for futures package, cheap longer term keepers, minor leaguers, picks etc.  Both of us made trades, I acquired Stanton, they got Yelich.  The difference between the production Yelich has given versus Stanton and his replacements is almost directly correlated to them being in 1st and me in 2nd. 

I have really worked the Waiver Wire hard in auction keeper and the price you pay for them in FAAB becomes their auction price and I was able to package some of them with minor leaguers and other assets I had to get some studs.  

Kingery, Giolito, Mercado, Dozier, Biggio, Canning - all $1-2 guys who I got off the waiver wire and flipped in package deals to acquire: Lindor, Altuve, Scherzer, Arenado, Greinke. 

Best Auction buy: Buehler at $38 on 260 or Luke Voit at $10  

Worst Auction Buy:  Darvish at 9 or McCutchen at 12 - loved them both at the time, Darvish I dropped and bought back for $2

Best Add - see list above

Worst Drop - Voit

Lots of good trades - 

Worst - preseason deal for Stanton and Mikolas

I only do one league per year and it's a 10 team keeper 5 total. Here are my ups and downs. 

 

Best draft pick - Either Soroka or Bell (both in the 26th round and can keep for 3 years in that round; more on that later)

Worst draft pick - Votto pick 21. I must have been drunk already at that point. 

Best add - Laureano especially due to keeper eligibility for the next 3 years in the last round. Miley was another good add. 

Worst drop - Bell and Soroka...it still hurts to admit this. I dropped both very early when I had all 3 IL spots full with another another hurt. Soroka was still in the minors and Bell was looking like the Bell from the previous two years at that point. 

Best trade - gave up next year's 2nd and 10th round picks for Bryant and Syndergaard. It's helped me get into 4th for a chance at placing either 2nd or 3rd and get paid.

Worst trade - that was the only trade I made.

Worst Drop: Brandon Woodruff (early on, well before the injury)

Best Trade:  Gave Contreras for Giolito and Vasquez (well before Gio regressed)

Worst Trade: Gave Arenado for Kluber/Rendon (the very next start Kluber got hurt)

I am right there with you with some bad drops but still somehow in first.  

 

Best Draft Picks:  Rosario (100th Overall), Bieber (161st Overall), Jorge Polanco (181st Overall)

Worst Draft Picks: Benintendi (41st Overall), Shaw (121st Overall), Leclerc (drafting him at all)

Best Add:  Soroka, Laureano, Lowe (pre-injury), Bichette (so far), Paddack (for a bit)

Worst Drop:  Cannot believe I am in first with  these drops:  Jorge Polanco, Bell, Bieber, LeMahieu

Best Trade:  Traded Rendon for Arenado right before Rendon hit the IL.  Wouldn't have been upset with either player, however.

Worst Trade: No other trades

 

In fairness, the Polanco (had Story), Bell (before he got hot), and Bieber (QS league) were all very early drops.  LeMahieu (who I actually dropped Bieber to get) was dropped when his OBP was great but wasn't providing much counting stats (boy did that change).  Man what my team would look like with those guys.

12 team h2h points league

 

Best keeper:  Bellinger, really almost kept Xander B over him after his struggles last year. 

Worst Keeper Decision:  Paxton, Price, Flarety (hopefully he's turned it around ) over Bieber. 

Worst draft pick:  Haniger rd. 9 ( first after keepers ) or Stripling rd 11

Best draft pick: Dejong late rounds don't remember which

Best pick up:  Dozier, Miley,  Montas ( until he got suspended )

Worst drop:  none I tend to be too patient with guys

Trade: only made 1, traded Pham for Moustakas. could have got Moose for Haniger which hindsight would have been much better for me.
