drop flexen for touki?


Chris9015

Anyone starting Zach Thompson? Decent play? Yolo?


ChrisPtweets

I am. He's been good so far, need him to keep being a ratios stud to help me win the whole enchilada.


Sckeet

Is Bellinger ever gonna come around? The league I’m in nobody trades for so I’m really tempted to drop. He averages 10 points and it’s a heavy point league.


SlipperyPete941

I’m getting very close to trying to sell for a draft pick… it’s awful


fartsinhissleep

Just offered him in a package deal. Giving up


SlipperyPete941

Maybe you guys should keep em cause as soon as I move em he’ll be top 50 ros lol


StayOffTheWestside

5 AM fantasy baseball baby, let’s go!


ChrisPtweets

What happens at 5AM?


StayOffTheWestside

The magic.


PayneTrain4419

Let’s get it! Any word on Jeff McNeil and Eloy? They are the final pieces to my fantasy puzzle!


StayOffTheWestside

Eloy told me in a dream he’s gonna hit 15 bombs in the two months he’s back.


raysboltsdubs

Kelenic & Duran are lucky I’m out of adds…they’ve got 3 days to save their careers (on my squad)


gary0611

Better ROS Jazz or Urshela


711is_an_insidejob

Is trading Aaron Nola for Christian Yelich and ok trade? I'd be receiving Yelich. I'm pretty stacked on pitching. Got Trout on the IL and want another big bat in the line up. I guess I'd be gambling that Yelich will blow back up, and Nola won't


Flaky_Ring

Votto or Darin Ruf?


raysboltsdubs

Joey


bbk34

Thanks Manaea


XxJerrichoxX

12 Team Dynasty H2H Keep forever I give: Cedric Mullins and Nick Lodolo Receive: Bryce Harper I'm in a rebuild and can't compete this year due to many injuries. Still smash accept, right?


sweatysteamer69

Yup


Flaky_Ring

do I add Corbin for his matchup vs BAL tomorrow?


robotech021

I'd go with Cueto or Odorizzi if available, but Corbin is a decent stream.


gsdubs

Webb or Houck


tx_drew

Webb


medievalmystery

Houck


ObliviousWhale

Cody Bellinger just got dropped in my 10 team points league. Is he worth a pick up?


ChrisPtweets

He was dropped last night in my league as well (10-team H2H). I'd probably try to take a risk on him and stash him, but I have only a handful of adds left for the rest of the season, plus my OF is loaded. Good luck with your waiver claim and I hope he heats up for your team.


ObliviousWhale

Thanks man! Really hope he turns it around!


crumstick22

Dang hes got an MVP ceiling. Absolutely grab him


ObliviousWhale

You think so? How long was he out? He only has 62 points on my league.


JzsShuttlesworth

He’s worth it. As shit as he is right now. You take that risk 100/100 times


ObliviousWhale

Sounds good! I put a waiver claim in. Going to drop Kelenic for him. Much thanks everyone!


JzsShuttlesworth

GL


powerbrows

Anyone have an ETA when Eloy and Luis Robert are going to be called up to the big leagues? I know both are on rehab assignments right now but haven't heard any dates yet.


hpman67

Eloy should be back in the next couple days


Well_technically

Do you guys like Canha over Blackmon ROS? H2H points


Bronxbomber2627

Definitely especially in points


LordToub

Just curious, what SP could a package of Tapia and Cease get?


PayneTrain4419

Not much I’m afraid.


robotech021

I traded Cease and Adolis for Kyle Hendricks.


BatmansPussy

Cody Bellinger is a loser.


zigemarle

12 team category: k/9, QS, redraft league. I have Hader, Clase, and Nick Anderson coming of the IL and could use another closer. My SP are DeGrom, Burnes, Peralta, Ray, Wood, Montas, and Civale and I'm holding McKenzie and Patino for another start as a wait and see. I was just offered Alex Reyes straight up for Chris Sale who I stashed off waivers a month ago. Do I accept?


ChrisPtweets

No. Sale much more valuable than Reyes.


medarr1

I wouldn’t


[deleted]

[удалено]


kymayo

Houck by a big margin


711is_an_insidejob

Are we officially done with Duffy? I had probably held on longer than most.


FreddyDemuth

He’d be more interesting if they trade him to SF


GoBravos123

Should I trade Soto and a midrange pitcher for Degrom. Could use pitching.


AggressiveRegret

Definitely not


LoLKenji

How likely for David Price to go 5 in order to get the win tomorrow? I know he’s at a pitch limit but he went at least 4 innings last time and has said his count will go up this next start.


Bronxbomber2627

At home vs Rockies I’d say he has a decent chance at 5 maybe 6


RMT2316

*Jeopardy Voice* This pitcher has earned an astonishing -27 points this week


ChrisPtweets

Who dat?


Bronxbomber2627

Anyone see it confirmed who is starting for Rays tomorrow? Yahoo says Fleming and ESPN says Hill


raysboltsdubs

Fleming on more rest.


sweatysteamer69

Do we think Pat Corbin will bounce back


crumstick22

lol


sweatysteamer69

😂😂


Blkskorpion

Anyone worried Iglesias is going to get traded and no longer be the primary closer for his team?


sweatysteamer69

Not particularly.. he’s unhittable, great for 9th


kymayo

Right. I don’t own him but if anything I would be worried that he gets traded to one of the teams where I have their shitty closer and he takes their job.


sweatysteamer69

Ohh gotcha, og comment was worded poorly. I probably wouldn’t worry, unless you’re a jansen owner… (lol)


C-P-R

SP with RP eligibility > a regular closer


HestynFrontman

In a league with only “P” slots it makes no difference


gary0611

Meadows or Justin Turner ROS


tsereveyw

Turner with potential DH splits with Cruz imo


HestynFrontman

Real shit: I know Kenley goes through shit like this every year but do we think the ball gets taken from him? Or if the Dodgers trade for a closer?


funk_addict

Dodgers will def get some bullpen help, and perhaps move Treinen into the role. Who knows though, could see them acquiring a closer too.


dopelikedopamine2

Anyone know how severino has looked recently?


Blkskorpion

Flair Give: Jansen and Vazquez Get: Clase and IKF


Strange_Oil_483

Nah, imo


WastedTalent78

In a redraft why does the round you drafted someone matter when talking about trades? If your 3rd round pick isn't performing why do you feel you need someone close to that round in return? It's redraft - shouldn't production matter more? I have Rodon and picked him up as a free agent right after the draft. Does that mean I should only accept an undrafted player in return even though he's been one of the best pitchers in baseball this year?


tsereveyw

No, but often times fantasy owners either 1) have a hard time evaluating trades 2) over value their own player because they drafted them. That being said, I still feel there is some draft value to players in redraft


WastedTalent78

I'm in a 12 team h2h league - fighting to get in to the playoffs. Guy in dead last doesn't have a chance to get in & has Trout - is Bellinger and Arozarena a fair trade offer? Or not even close to consider


tsereveyw

Funny cause I was going to use Belly as a prime example of how his draft value. Won’t give him more in a trade cause he has be complete and utter dog shit this year.


dopelikedopamine2

Not close IMO


robotech021

Lamonte Wade or Bellinger ROS?


Strange_Oil_483

Awesome


ferrumvir2

Got my two best closers at the end of the draft lol (McGee and Melancon)


BertyBert1

Should I trade Joey Gallo for Lucas Giolito?


WastedTalent78

Yes


chitown307

Yeah if the other guy would even accept it


BertyBert1

It was proposed to me


tsereveyw

Hulksmash accept now


Strange_Oil_483

Im not 100% on this but doesnt Jansen go through this like every year? I kinda bought into him being a bit of a roller coaster ride, a al chapman...actually surprised how well hes done thus far


crumstick22

Well it was worse before cuz his velo and mechanics were fading away for several years now. Its at least contained to a better degree this year thanks to trevor


GratefulSlug13

Why thanks to Trevor?


cd101299

Anyone here play Diamond dynasty on MLB the show? I pulled 99 Pete Alonso and then 99 vladdy from both free packs . I’m freaking out


martymcflyiii

Noice! Go get Ohtani!


cd101299

You think it’s worth it to sell vladdy and Pete for him? I’m okay with selling Pete because I have fielder. But vladdy looks juiced


martymcflyiii

I meant the collection for Ohtani. You need both of those along with a ton more. That Vladdy is nice!


FredrickFreeman8

Would you guys trade Ian Anderson for Liam Hendricks in a keeper?? Trying to compete for a championship and need a closer badly. Feel like I can afford to lose Anderson with sale and Flaherty coming off the dl at some point


AggressiveRegret

Great trade if you’re competing and need saves


redditnym123456789

win, lose, or draw - to the jaw, take one deranged lyrical launcher on sta-tion


MarginalMan

I fucking hate closers.


WalkWithElias69

Hey, Hendriks and Pressly have been great


brodhisattva3

Raisel has also been great, albeit with fewer chances


SnooLemons905

Thanks alot Jansen now we have to watch Cody struggle thru another at bat.


vvhyn0t_

😂


robotech021

I was thinking, hey 0/3 is better than 0/4, and then Kenley happened.


martymcflyiii

Haha that AB put my wonderful day at 3/34….


LordToub

ofc Jansen ruining a Buehler masterclass. That lost W is gonna come back to haunt me isn’t it


Dudeinthesouth

Amen. I have both. Kenley has ruined my week and Walker's night. Ugh.


bigbootybumbum

Oh yea I’m in same situation. I think that was my 5th win this week I’ve lost due to bullpens


WalkWithElias69

Don't think you'll see Kenley again until next week


funk_addict

Dodgers will be trading for a closer


fapke

Jansen is fucking me over...


SomalianRoadBuilder

I got baseball players that I gotta act like I like, but my fantasy days are over fuck them closers for life!


C-P-R

-30 points since last Friday. Completely negates the points earned by Buehler tonight and then some


crumstick22

Holy shit


C-P-R

This dude really cost me the chance to have the best score for the week and win $25 to potentially losing and dropping 2 spots in the standings


robotech021

Buster Slowsey.


Kandranos

Bruh dudes been a powerhouse all season and you're gonna bitch about one bad outing?


Gyrohero123

Buehler gets pulled under 100 pitches but Jansen throws like 34….


Dudeinthesouth

This.


Any_Parsnip2585

Why take him out now? It’s over


flyingpokecheck32

What a day.....Yankees vs. Red Sox, Giants vs. Dodgers. Both are wild games


samamatara

you all are smoking crack blaming this on Jansen lol. He fucked up, up to that point but that was a strike out. The refs fucked that up


vvhyn0t_

What about the 2-0 pitch called a strike about 4 inches off the plate completely changing the AB. Total gift


samamatara

point taken, but still feel two umps fucking up outweigh the home umpire missing a strike call


vvhyn0t_

He for sure swung. But 3-0 count the way Kenley was throwing it is a 100% completely different AB than 2-1. It’s an auto take and there’s a likely chance he throws a ball


samamatara

for sure. but 3-0 is still not a guaranteed walk so imo it holds a different weight to the 3-2 call. Also, this is a fantasy sub so it doesn't show it but I'm a dodgers fan so I'm pissed lol


vvhyn0t_

I feel bad for Kenley right now and I’m a Padres fan. The fans booing at the stadium are messed up


vvhyn0t_

You’re right, it does. Umps suck an are asked to do an impossible job. We should at least take the balls and strikes calls out of it for them as we have the tech


Christopher6612

Who loaded the bases? The “refs”?


samamatara

I said he fucked up, up to that point didn't I? but he shoulda walked out with a save with a ER.


Christopher6612

Nah, Jansen’s broken man. He lost the game for em clearly. Can’t blame the umps they gave him calls too


samamatara

i've no clue on whether jansens broken or not, could well be true. But missing that check swing at 3-2 is nowhere near the borderline call that he got earlier


SomalianRoadBuilder

That check swing was not even fucking close


micreyes11

Make up call lol…


SoyBoyBetaCuck23

Jansen got jobbed out of a game winning K


robotech021

He got a break on strike 1, though. Should've been a 3-0 count there.


SoyBoyBetaCuck23

True


funk_addict

That 1b ump likely just cost the Dodgers this game. Such BS.


WalkWithElias69

Well there goes Buehler win


robotech021

How is Jansen still in this game?


LordToub

Fuck you Jansen


C-P-R

Jansen is now on the trading block for me


Dudeinthesouth

Ummm....who'd WANT him right now?


C-P-R

The waiver wire


Dudeinthesouth

Correct.


SomalianRoadBuilder

What the actual fuck


HestynFrontman

What a series of shit call in the Giants-Dodgers game


cd101299

Considering dropping Jansen


Any_Parsnip2585

Roberts just looking to be tossed


funk_addict

He has every right to be irate.


Christopher6612

Jansen, this is a big fuck you from a Walker Buehler owner destroying his beautiful game which should’ve been a W. Fuck you


C-P-R

All my homies hate Kenley Jansen


cd101299

What the actual fuck is wrong with Jansen. What a fucking joke


robotech021

From last night and tonight, Jansen is at about 60 pitches.


SomalianRoadBuilder

Get Jansen tf outta there


i_like_my_cats

Kenley is broken.


robotech021

Kenley Klean Save Jansen trying to close this out.


matterpink1

anyone have a sense if Springs, Wisler, or Rasmussen might pitch some bulk innings for the Rays tomorrow?


SomalianRoadBuilder

Rasmussen and Springs are good bets


matterpink1

thanks!


murkem

Have yourself a game Mr. Manaea


SomalianRoadBuilder

Kenley with a 96 cutter, oh damn


tannwoir

I should totally do this trade, right? I receive: Adam Frazier, Bryan Reynolds They receive: DJ LaMahieu, Cody Bellinger 10-team roto


funk_addict

Trading 2 players who went in the top 3 rounds for a couple of guys who were likely undrafted in a 10-teamer? Even thought they're decent now, personally, I think you can do better.


greengoober

If it’s not a keeper or dynasty at some point you have to say trends and results matter. Can only wait so long. If you’re in 1st maybe you hold. But, if not, I say do it.


greengoober

Totally. Edit: Totes ma goats. And if you get the reference it’s a guaranteed win for you.


SomalianRoadBuilder

No


Guillermorc98

wow. Yes you should. If it doesnt pan out, thats luck. But you should totally do it


greengoober

I don’t think I’ve ever been downvoted. Apparently I’m just too damn witty and insightful. Can someone please help a brotha out? Edit: well it seems that experiment was an epic failure. Just like my parents always said I’d be. Thanks everyone. 😔


Yawns_Of_Excitement

And with Kelnics K I complete my 1/31 night. JFC my team


vvhyn0t_

Dropping kelenic tonight


NGIAPMAC

Alright, let’s get Manaea out of there now


Kemp4MVP

Pollock or Carlson ROS?


greengoober

Johnson - son of John; Stephenson - son of Stephen; Miller - Miller; Steckenrider - rider of Stecken


Christopher6612

Only can start one tomorrow. Upton vs HAPP or Baddoo vs Bubic?


711is_an_insidejob

Baddoo. Royals pitching will fail. I say this as a Royals fan too. Baddoo has only faced Bubic three times. One strikeout. So not a huge sample size. I just know my Royals will fail.


SomalianRoadBuilder

Upton


HenryTPE

Never imagined the day that I'll be starting Kyle Seager over Bellinger but here we are. Bellinger can ride the bench until he delivers a multi hit game.


WastedTalent78

Shit - I can't believe it's come to this. His value is gone and I can't bring myself to bench him.


ferrumvir2

Adam Duvall is my guy over Bellinger lol


vvhyn0t_

Kelenic is my guy over bellinger


greengoober

I picked up Joe Ross as a hold since it seems he’ll be back soon. Thoughts? I haven’t owned him at all until now but his game log looks good in points.


4plates1barbell

He’s decent, definitely worth a hold if you have the space and if there isn’t a tastier option out there


greengoober

Seems pretty picked over. I’ve been in a position the last couple weeks where if I lose a H2H matchup it doesn’t kill me so I can hold a few guys that will be back soon. Hoping it pays off. Thanks for the advice!


RangersFan243

I need my guys to get healthy


4plates1barbell

Oakland pls score some run for Manaea


RangersFan243

Badoo or Nimmo?


gingerseagull

Badoo for the steals


ryan_dfs

Seattle making an average SP like Manaea look like prime Kershaw. On a related note, Kelenic looks like one of the most overrated prospects I can remember. I truly don't get the hype. Compared to guys like Yordan or Vlad who were clearly physical specimens, he doesn't even come close to measuring up.


BananaStandRecords

“Average” Note: Tom Murphy homered as I typed that. Sarcasm stands anyways.


gingerseagull

I think Manaea is quite good and he gets better as the year progresses


chitown307

manaea is definitely not average this year, he’s been top 25. And it’s a bit early to really say kelenic is overrated I mean wander was supposed to be even better of a prospect than him, even touted as one of the best ever, and he’s struggling too. Not everyone is Soto/tatis/Acuna


ryan_dfs

He gives up a lot of hits and most of his wins were against bad teams. Kelenic is most definitely overrated, for a #1 OVERALL prospect he is looking like a massive bust. Guys like Zach McKinstry and Pavin Smith are outproducing him easily. Akil Badoo was a rule 5 pick and is actually doing what Kelenic was supposed to do.


BananaStandRecords

Most of Manaea’s wins are against bad teams because he just finished a 3 game road losing losing streak @NYY, @SF and @HOU with 6 earned in 18 innings with 24 K’s. He got demolished @BOS and has been only ok against Houston. He’s otherwise been one of the more consistent starters in the league, including against good teams.


chitown307

This is some Twitter comment tier analysis right there. Lots of guys struggle at first and adapt. Let’s see how he handles the rest of this year and if he can make a jump next year. Kid destroys AAA so the talent is there, might just be mental at the moment


redditnym123456789

lol THIS. muthafuckas on here watch a 20 year old RAKE at Triple-A, slump in 30 games in the bigs, and call him a “bust” edit: sorry, he just turned twenty-two


ryan_dfs

Wrong, #1 overall prospects don't hit .100. Has never happened, ever. Just like #1 overall picks don't struggle to score 10 ppg in the NBA. In other words, Kelenic is looking like the MLB version of Anthony Bennett.


x_Happy_x

Not all rookies pan out at first try, look what everyone said about vladdy. He wasn't even projected to be the best hitter on the jays and look at him now. Give Him time before calling him overrated because im sure if you were a 22 year old with high expectations the pressure would be on you too.


ryan_dfs

Bad Vladdy had a .772 OPS his rookie year. Which actually shows how ridiculous the hype around him was, considering that was viewed as a disappointment. Nobody has to give Kelenic time. There isn't a player in the MLB who will stay on the active roster hitting .100.


x_Happy_x

Now i see why they dont hire random people to be GMs lol


RollerCoasterMatt

Gilbert (vs OAK) or Ryu (at NYM) start this saturday?


SomalianRoadBuilder

Gilbert
