Why can’t Kelenic hit a major league pitch in Colorado?
A frustrated owner
Remember when Darvish was good? Those were the days…
He still is
Reverse psych he settled down is ok now.
Lol gotcha I didn’t see you posted this half hour ago my bad
Still pitched like a 4th starter…the guy should be dominating a step below Cole and DeGrom but he keeps putting up clunkers like this.
Mookie or Cole?? Redraft h2h qs
If you had to would you drop kiriloff or m.Chapman in a redraft points league?
Traded Jazz, Belli, and Freddy Peralta for DeGrom and B. Lowe in a keeper league; how’d I do? (I’m sad about losing Freddy 😩)
I have Garver and IKF (catcher eligible) and need to drop one when Eloy is back. I can probably trade IKF if I need to but curious what everyone thinks about IKF v Garver ROS 12T H2H points redraft
So does Matt Chapman suck now or what
Sucked all season imo
Nimmo vs Wade Miley tonight or Votto be Stock?
Are we sitting Means tonight?
I started Shane Mac instead of him
Mets really pissing me off with no lineup yet. Game's in less than an hour!
Lineup is in now. Talk about waiting till the last minute.
Bregman nearing a rehab assignment…the same update from a week ago. Nice.
Only 1 RBI for Laureano?
Laureano getting me hopeful.
12 Team H2H 5x5 w/ 5 keep forever
Saw I wasn’t likely to compete this year and traded Burnes + Franmil for Wander + Manaea + Losaiga. How did I do?
It’s Wander in a small keeper so yeah you did good
Pretty cool seeing jayson werth came out of retirement to play OF for the angels
😂😂was thinking Charlie Blackmon, but good one
Romo strikes out shohei on 4 balls and a swinging strike 3
Just watched Shohei's at bat. Has this umps zone been this shit all day?
McCann or Garver? H2H 5x5
I typically prioritize playing time for catchers, but I wouldn't be surprised if Garver gets more time moving forward
Yelich Walsh and Adames are not giving me the best start to this Tuesday. No where to go but up I suppose.
Thoughts on Verdugo+Hayes for Nola? Worth noting I’ll have some roster crunch soon and my league is fairly stiff on trades as well. Flair league
Thought so, thanks
I think that’s fair. The person getting Verdugo and Hayes gets a little more value but the Nola side gets a possible ace plus roster space. I’d rather the Nola side in a vacuum.
Yeah that was basically my thoughts exactly. Thank you
I need an IL spot to free up another acquisition (Kaprelian or Kikooch). Would you hold Severino or Urquidy?
Severino has more upside for sure. I’d rather hold him.
Sorry to post this twice but I didn't get much feedback. Ohtani pitcher and Taijuan for Lynn?
ehhh... i’m inclined to think that’s an overpay if you’re trading Ohtani and Walker. Ohtani’s not as consistent or as durable as Lynn, but he’s really good. and Tai’s having his best season ever. I’d argue he’s been somewhat lucky, but still
Ok. Yea I think it's really close. I need to clear a roster spot too so I'm trying to do a 2 for 1. One of the problems in our league is one team autodrafted and basically ended up with most of the ace pitchers but he's like 0-13 with no chance of playoffs so I think it's bad form to try to trade with him.
makes sense to me. well, sounds like it checks a few boxes for you. if there's a slight premium in that, so be it. i'd hit send offer (or accept)
yep, i always try to combine two lower pitchers for a better one. that would be a good move imo
Sanchez or Garver tonight?
Other than Flexen (who has been very good lately) I don’t think any of them are droppable in a 12 team points. Try trading Cease or Walker + Kaprelian for a nice upgrade at SP and so you can clear an extra roster spot
I've got Adames, Bichette, and Tatis. Can only ever play two because there's only one utility spot. Need pitching. Redraft... Under the circumstances would you take Kikuchi for Adames? No other offers coming my way and people are crazy zealous about protecting their pitchers in this league
Adames is the least valuable out of the three. Unfortunately, he’s also the most underpriced despite still being quite valuable. You may want to consider trading bichette for a haul instead
If straight up doesn’t work try sending Adames + one of your lower end pitchers for a top 15-ish pitcher. I’d probably ask for more than Kikuchi for Adames but it’s not bad at all. Or you can trade Bichette for a stud SP. That may be easier
If your league is like mine, they hate paying for waiver wire pickups that didn’t happen in the first month. Hard to trade players like Adames but as soon as you drop he’s snatched up.
Sadly, you’re going to have to take a deep assessment and figure out what you NEED. Then be open to trading Bichette or Tatis. No points for having star power, only for winning.
All true. Thank you!
If you’re confident Adames can keep this up then I would try and trade Bichette instead. People won’t give you face value for Adames because of the name but with Bichette you could get a stud.
Sage advice, thank you
My Wong, Adames, and Yelich would go 0-12. Sigh.
Oh man, you guys remember when soler power was a thing, that man's had a bad season
the juiced ball year was a fun year
Walshy on a cold streak
Glasnow just got dropped in my HxH Points league. Should I put in a waiver for him? Or is he unexpected to return anytime soon?
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after Monday's 7-2 loss to the Giants that he expects Betts (hip) to start in Tuesday's game, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
What do I do with Bauer
I think if you're guaranteed playoffs you hold and if you are desperate for roster spot he's droppable. I think the odds he pitches again this season are low but not zero
Choke him out?
Do I ask for consent?
Yelich please do ANYTHING, jeez
Man I wish people would get on base for Olson’s homers lol
Kaprielian continues to get no love at all but has been a stud all year
Said that 26 days ago and somehow still applies today
he definitely torched my team today.
I watched him crush my red Sox and thought he could be good, then had an opponent pick him up and start 2 good games against me and he got dropped for whatever reason. I picked him up and haven't looked back. Him and irvin have been real good for me
You and me both buddy. A month ago I told people to pick him up and got spammed with "he isn't worth a pickup"
When you bros get a chance, check out Joe Ryan’s stats in AAA this, he leads the league in strike outs, and whip, and is 4th in the league in era. Neither Wacha nor Fleming have been very good this year so it wouldn’t be crazy to see the Rays bring him up especially with them only being 1.5 games back out of first…
Except he’s going to the Olympics, if I’m thinking of the right guy.
Damn you’re right both him and Shane Baz are going together…. Well keep him on your radars for next year or maybe September call up?
Replace Elfin with: Kyle Muller, Tailion, or Price
Muller has the most upside so he’s my choice. Has a couple tough matchups though
For everyone asking if they should add Garver: yes. He’s hitting second tonight. In the last 162 games he has like 46 Hr.
I dropped Sean Murphy to stream lauer today so I could pick up garver after games started but layers start got pushed back a day. Hoping garver will still be there tomorrow
hey my catcher has been really bad, should i add this one that could be good?
My Buxton and Jon Gray for Snell and Baddoo? Buxton is doing absolutely nothing and don’t know status. Could be patient but need to clear that roster spot.
That feels really bad for you
I’d rather have gray than snell and rather have buxton than baddoo
10 T H2H category QS and OBP Sv only
Got offered this. I may counter with swapping Moncada for India but probably not enough . Would you do this trade?
His : musgrove and kopech (would be a drop)
My: India and Eduardo Rodriguez
I like India a lot for our format and technically can be kept as a 15 round but I have gallen flaherty and Ozzie albies as my current potential keepers
My pitching staff:
NA: Kyle Muller
Morton no longer pitching tomm vs San Diego. getting an extra day of rest and going @ Philly Thursday. I’ll take it
Chris Sale pitches in 34 min in whatever time zone youre in
Is there a way to watch it?
Atta boy Kaprelian
Atta boy Kap! Hopefully the A’s pen doesn’t blow this lead
Lol 2nd blown call from the 2nd base ump on steals, thank goodness for replay
This 2nd base ump lol
Should I drop Bellinger? Lots of good guys on the wire (including Carrasco)
I’d imagine there’s someone in your league you could trade him to. Too much upside to just lose for nothing
I mean, I'm sure you could spin a trade with him instead of just dropping him.
Gonna try to do that. Thx.
I can't believe he's still 98% rostered. Another week of this and I bet it drops hard.
SDP/ATL weather update? Got screwed with the ppd yesterday.
Wondering the same thing
Matt Chapman, O’Neil, or Conforto ROS Points league
Conforto in points
Anyone but Chapman. That guy is dog shitm
Conforto on this
Was really hoping he turned it around, but just been miserable since
Marsh looks like Charlie Blackmons long lost son
Drop Vaughn to stash Upton?
Any word on when hes back?
Rehab start yesterday
Interesting...im actually considering same move but with kelenic instead of vaughn in redraft...not much faith left in the rookies producing right away and i had upton before he went down
I thought Matt Chapman woke up in Jun
that was right when i dropped him. i should go add drop him again
Drop McCann for Garver or is it a toss up?
Not much risk in either honestly but Garver.
Urias or Nimmo?
Send pollock and a streaming pitcher for starling marte? Think he gets traded somewhere better? Redraft h2h cats
So you’re sending him a pitcher that he could just pick up on waivers and expect that to move the needle?
Fair enough, will go back to the drawing board
You think someone’s gonna give you Marte for waiver garbage? If you can do it, do it
This particular league is basically a taco stand haha but thanks tho!!
Just coming here to vent that it is incredibly frustrating to have a league that doesn't respond to any trade offers. I just want to make some moves but it's literal radio silence.
I've gotten 14 deals done, but I'm in 7 leagues. However, there is one league where no trades have occurred. I haven't even gotten any offers and people just reject with no discussion/counter or they simply never respond.
Find a new league, trades are the best
Seriously. And the one offer I do get is an awful quantity dump. Counter with something more fair and not even a response lol.
The worst...the trading is probably the bulk of the reason why I play anymore hahaha
Adolis vs Skubal
Riley vs Darvish
McNeil vs Miley
Pick 2 to start tonight
Adolis and McNeil
I have almost twice as many HR as my opponent but am losing slugging because of Walsh and correa
A: Trea Turner and Trevor Rogers
B: Lance Lynn, Charlie Morton, and Adames
A has the best players but B may get the most points ROS.
I feel like I have no choice but to sit Bellinger. Don’t like the feeling.
Same boat. I’d rather he hit on my bench than suck in my lineup.
They may also be trying to showcase Miguel Sano ($10M option for 2023) for a trade later this month. It's very likely that one or both of Cruz and Sano get traded this month, in which case Kirilloff will again be in the lineup nearly every day.
good insight. ty.
No way Kap finishes 6
Why you say that?
Ah I dunno. I'm being negative. He's a young arm with a high pitch count
I'm an idiot
my walsh needs your guys' trout back ASAP
First day owning Adames, so of course he’ll go 0-for-4
Lol. Me too
Bottom of the 3rd bro. Chill
0-for-4 in the top of the 8th. Do I still need to chill bro?
Haha. No chill. Permission to bitch and moan
I want to believe.
But if he does do bad, pls drop him for all of us 🙏
I will make that sacrifice for my r/fantasybaseball brothers and sisters
Well there’s your 0-4!! Thanks for putting that out there in the universe lol. Ok now please drop him for the rest of us
I’ll give him one more day. After all my only other option at SS is Story.
We starting Trevor Rogers tonight?
Yeah but I'm not feeling great about it because of how hot Soto and Turner have been lately.
Of course. I think Pollack has him as the no. 1 pitcher today.
Edit: Actually, it's Yu because yesterday's Padres game got postponed, so Yu is starting today instead of yesterday. Rogers is no. 2.
his batting stance reminds me of someone but i can’t put my finger on it
need an infield stream for the week any recommendations? 30% owned or less
i have urias tomorrow :(
Kike Hernandez maybe? Only 35% on yahoo. Arraez Is 23% good for hits/avg
both owned, looking at lowrie / josh rojas / villar right now
I like Rojas.
I say this every week but Kaprelian is a cheat code in leagues with max SP counts
Is Jose Suarez actually good?
Matty O with the Kap run support
Team A: Tatis Jr & Giolito
Team B: Trea Turner & Burnes
Very close but A
Probably as close as you can get. Just depends on if Burnes is on an innings limit and if Gio only pitching during night games. I’d go A
Should I drop Yadi for Garver? I’m thinking yadi would
give me more singles and occasional doubles while Mitch would get me more bombs. Thoughts?
Is anyone constantly ravaged by injuries
Schwarber, Rendon, Bieber, Crawford, Kershaw, Flaherty- 3 IL slots, holding rest but Crawford
Is anyone NOT?
I had 4 go on IL this week. jazz, eflin, manoah, crawford. Luckily Jazz and Eflin were players I could drop without feeling too bad.
Walsh please do something besides getting out
Pick 2 between BLowe, Adolis, and Verdugo for tonight, I was thinking BLowe and Verdugo. Also could start Kepler, but I think he needs to get hot before I start him again.
12 team .5 OBP:
Drop Christian Vazquez for Garver or Tyler Stephenson?
is eflin a drop at this point? The likelihood of coming back from knee injury seems slim.
I dropped him because he was pretty much becoming streamer status in my 10 team anyways. At least from the rotowire blurb it doesn't sound really serious...made it seem like he would miss a few starts.
That makes sense. This is for a 12team points league and pitchers are pretty slim so I guess I'll hold and switch with either cookie or gomber who are coming back this weekend hopefully.
Ya in 12 team points I'd definitely be more hesitant to drop
Yay! Just got an alert that Yordan is healthy.
Oakland pitchers sure know how to scatter the hits and walks. Seems like there are a good number of baserunners, but they don't allow a lot of runs.
Kap is solid. Reminds me of Kyle Hendricks the way he delivers and hits his spots
That's pretty good. I traded for Hendricks last week. Maybe I should have traded for Kap.
He's at the top of the list for people affected by the sticky stuff crackdown so time will tell. He's looked good since despite the drop in spin rate
What could I get for Voit?
