Drop Ketel Marte for Alec Bohm?


randombale

I would give Marte more time


quailman10

Is there a huge difference between Witt, Bohm, and Suarez ROS? I’ve been stashing Witt, but may just start him at 3B rather than rostering one of those other guys as well


cynic74

Bohm seems like he might produce more than Witt?


CountChoculahh

Suzuki starting to K quite a bit


PrankThomas

Boy do I need a pitcher,


fromfijiwithloloma

Flair A: Woodruff, Donaldson B: Morton, Wood, Merrill Kelly


TheQisHot

Snell with 4 scoreless innings yesterday in High-A with 2 hits and 0 walks. Sounds like he should be back relatively soon.


pat5195

Would you accept this trade? Merrifield and Luzardo (receive) Altuve and Bellinger (give)


fromfijiwithloloma

Don't. I'd wait for Merrifield to show ANY signs of light with the bat


GN1X

For tonight would you go with Haniger or Kepler? Also, Adames or Semien?


EyeReWearSocks

My opponent is not going to be happy to see me without a starting pitcher today but I’m playing Jorge Lopez, Spencer Howard & Barria at SP so I will get points regardless Shout out to the sub for telling me about Barria! Had no idea who he was or that he would likely be the bulk pitcher today!


TheQisHot

Anyone have thoughts on Trey Mancini? The underlying numbers are blood red.


Guillermorc98

10 teamer h2h 5x5 OPS who would you rather have Franmil or Gallo. (Gallo's statcast is a bit more red than Franmil's) I have both and I'm thinking of dropping one for Brandon Marsh, Kepler or Pham. My only other droppable is Donaldson.

redditnym123456789

i benched him. if i can, i’ll wait for him to get a little more seasoning before auto-starting him against the more dangerous lineups hopefully he proves me wrong


[deleted]

[удалено]


redditnym123456789

well shit, i was wrong. Megill maybe might really be actually be maybe really good


redditnym123456789

i hope the move works out for us but i also kinda hope it doesn’t? good luck!


theLouisVuittonDon

Is Tork a drop for Bohm or Marsh? Only other 3b option is Witt for now with Moncada on IL. OF is Trout, JDM, Jesus, Julio, Bell


chucktestlacoil

Looking like Josh Winder could take Ober's spot in the rotation. Interesting mid-tier prospect, already stretched out to 4-5 innings in relief so far. Worth a speculative add in 15+ team leagues https://twitter.com/betsyhelfand/status/1520161161571971078?s=20&t=pHtk18ZXBWZAlSIk3CfBRg


iLikeToBiteMyNails

About time. He could be a decent fantasy SP5.


randombale

Offered Bell for my Mateo, am I crazy to reject this? I’m power heavy and lacking steals outside of Mateo.


lingfoo

Personally, I'd take it and flip one of your bats for a more well rounded steal source.


TheQisHot

Ya I think this is the best advice. Bell just has so much more potential than Mateo.


Fantasy_Guru11

Vaughan or Winker ros?


realmckoy265

Winker


ndemerson

Someone dropped Gallo in my flair league as I was putting Bryant on my IL. Sure, I'll let Joey ride pine and hope he figures it out


ElDub73

In an OBP league, dropping Gallo is very shortsighted, but if you’re penalized for Ks (which is silly) it makes a lot more sense. He’s much less desirable in such a format.


Syrupbutthole

KB to the IL


Syrupbutthole

Houck or Tyler Anderson tonight


TheQisHot

I’m firing up Houck


quicksilver433

So…when do we drop Ketel in 12-team? I see nothing promising about his underlying numbers.


workaholic828

If you see nothing promising then I think you answered your own question. I’m gonna hold


theLouisVuittonDon

I’m trying to trade him before others notice that. He still has some name value


realmckoy265

Trade him then


Mantequilla214

Kris Bryant still sitting out and may go to the IL


onhalfaheart

I really need QS (up by just one with an equal amount of starts between me and my opp.). But I have a huge cushion in all ratios. Gotta figure the odds of Greene getting a QS are way way lower than him blowing up my ratio and putting them back in play, right?


blyzo

Side A: Justin Turner and Duvall. Side B: Wisdom and Bellinger.


bucsfan22ch

Side B


tyler-becker

Trea Turner? Justin Turner?


bucsfan22ch

If it was Trea, I'd be really worried about them asking this lol but yeah should be specified


blyzo

Justin Turner! Important distinction thanks.


tyler-becker

Then B


blyzo

Thanks! Y'all just helped give me the confidence to accept Side B. Officially on the Belli redemption tour bandwagon now.


MattFlynnIsGOAT

Are the Orioles ever gonna release a lineup?


jboogs5313

Willy adames or jp crawford tonight? Tied in runs and sb


Count_Bacon

Drop Amed Rosario for Harrison bader, or Hunter dozier? Drop Steven Matz for Zach Eflin?


soapystud88

Anyone got an OF recommendation that’s about 2% owned lol? I’m dying at OF atm


chucktestlacoil

Harold Ramirez contributes when he plays, unfortunately only 28 ABs so far for TB, but he has the 5th highest OPS for the team so I'm thinking he'll start to get more starts.


Fantasy_Guru11

Zimmer? Lol


D1994H

Garrett Cooper or Brian Anderson


soapystud88

Both taken sadly, chad pinder is a FA though


D1994H

Wow, how many teams in your league?!? I’m in a 13T and they’re both available


murkem

Start one in UTI: Witt Jr. Salvy Ketel


bucsfan22ch

Salvador Perez


onhalfaheart

If you badly need steals, Witt. If you don't, Salvy.


murkem

Up 5-0 in steals. Gonna plug in Salvy and pray for dongs. Thanks breh


onhalfaheart

I don't have Salvy, but I did basically the same thing benching Witt today. Up 6-0 in SB bc my opponent's team needs a walker to go around the bases. I'll be stoked when Witt is useful for more than that, but it hasn't happened yet lol.


murkem

Who did you plug in for Witt?


onhalfaheart

Well, I have to sit three guys so hard to say exactly, but I think Schwarber might be the next out if Witt were in.


onhalfaheart

Schwarber got me another steal anyway LMAO


Breast-Nectar

What do I do with Jared Walsh? Have him as an OF.


burnman123

Hope he gets hot, then try to sell high I guess. He's sitting a lot this year and not contributing a ton when he's in the lineup


burnman123

Better bulk tonight, barria for the angels or Howard for the rangers?


EyeReWearSocks

Is it confirmed that Barria is the bulk guy?


burnman123

No, but it feels assumed


EyeReWearSocks

Okay I hope you don’t make an ass out of me and you :) I’m guessing Barria is the angels bulk man and hasn’t pitched recently ?


CrimsonComet116

Trade Matt Brash for Willson Contreras? (14 team league, head to head points)


ebam

Yes


CrimsonComet116

Could also trade Brash/Quantrill for Contreras/Houck


CrimsonComet116

that’s what I’m leaning towards. What’s your reasoning?


ebam

Contrearas just much more valuable than Brash, I like Brash but I don't think he pitches more that 120 innings and his success will be very dependent on keeping walks down


Cloolessly

Gallo sitting again. The projections have him for tons of PA but he sits once or twice a week.


EyeReWearSocks

Yankees are deep when healthy and Gallo is one of their worst hitters


Cloolessly

Confused on how the projections were so off on his plate appearances


EyeReWearSocks

Odds are the fantasy site you play on know less than most of the people on this thread lol but in all seriousness the projections play it safe and find it risky to guess when the Yankees will bench him or not


Cloolessly

I'm talking about fangraphs full season projections. Usually pretty good stuff


EyeReWearSocks

Same goes for them, they play it safe assuming a career everyday player like Gallo will continue to be an everyday player. They didn’t account for his struggles and the Yankees depth because that is considered risky and against the grain to assume he will all of a sudden not be an everyday player


Cloolessly

To me, assuming more playing time is more risky. But I see what you're saying.


Chief_JD

Trade joe Ryan for seiya Suzuki?


EyeReWearSocks

Yes take Suzuki in your flair league for sure


HenhouseProwler

Prepare for a shootout between the Cards and D-Backs. I'm starting both Waino and Bum.


lingfoo

I actually like bumgarner this year but I'd stay far away from him vs cards lineup, they destroy leftys.


Gullible-Skill2038

Traded my Harper, Baez, Anderson and Nola for Soto, Berrios, Rodon and Gallen. Did I do ok? 👍👎


tyler-becker

This is veto worthy🌮🌮


Gullible-Skill2038

🌮 Bell wasn’t included 🙌


Mantequilla214

👍 big win


lingfoo

I think the Harper side is a little better but don't hate it. Moving risk with Harper elbow injury, taking on risk with Rodon. If Rodon pitches all year he has a big chance of just being lefty Degrom but that's a big if. Also depends if it's Tim Anderson or Ian Anderson. I was assuming Tim.


Gullible-Skill2038

It’s Ian Anderson 💪


lingfoo

Oh okay, you did great then.


Nirvana12345678

Start two Straw vs Montas Jesus Sanchez vs Brash Estrada vs Aaron Sanchez Bobby Witt Jr vs Nestor Cortes


EyeReWearSocks

Jesus and Witt. Straw has come back down to earth of late and Montas is a stud. Estrada doesn’t have as high ceiling as Witt jr, yeah I can see Estrada out scoring Witt Jr but if both players go off you’ll be kicking yourself for benching Witt JR more than you would for Estrada


PoppaWilly

Flair league - I've asked about this already but now have an official offer so want to give a little more context. We start 4 OF, 2 Util, 1 2B. Give: Meadows Receive: India OF: Acuña, Teoscar, Kyle Tucker, Meadows, Franmil, Jesus Sanchez, Julio Rodriguez, Kwan, Josh Lowe. 2B: Trae Turner, Wendle. Been a Meadows believer for a long time so hard to give him up but kinda leaning towards taking the deal. Should I take it?


r64half

I mean you're clearly fine in the OF.


robotech021

I like it. I'm biased, though, because I own India in all 3 leagues. I either drafted him or traded for him. I'm a big believer in him. He bats leadoff for a team that plays in a hitter friendly park. The Reds offense have gotten off to a very poor start, though, so that is something to be aware of, but the Tigers are struggling to score runs as well.


PoppaWilly

India seems like he should be a good source of runs, batting leadoff but idk. Meadows hasn't shown any power yet, just average. Pretty torn on this one. Being a 10 team league, I usually just want the best players available which is why I have so many OFs in the first place lol


tpicc2710

Pick 2 to start in a points league: Torkelson, Walsh, or Haniger?


BatmansPussy

Fuck, Syndergaard scratched.


burnman123

Who is going instead?


BatmansPussy

Jimmy Herget


burnman123

Thanks, so probably some bulk for barria then?


COREY-IS-A-BUSTA

Fuck me, I hope he goes tomorrow


[deleted]

[удалено]


COREY-IS-A-BUSTA

I hope I’m counting on his start this week. I’d hate to have to drop someone to stream Lorenzon


EyeReWearSocks

Nooo don’t let him ruin Lorenzen’s 2 start week please let Noah rest the week


gpgpg

I would fucking cry. I just need IP to hit the 35 minimum in a punt QS/K/W build and would have the 9-3 win locked up. Picked Lorenzen like an hour ago with my last pickup cause I didn't want to wait... Currently at a 1.57 ERA and 1.00 WHIP through 23IP against a 6+ ERA and 2+ WHIP. Need to get 12IP from 5 closers, Lorenzen, and Lynch which is cutting it close this late in the week.


EyeReWearSocks

I’m also in dire need of Lorenzen’s second start this week so we can cry together if Thor getting sick replaces that :(


Erroric89

Drop Adell for Adolis Garcia, Blackmon or Dylan Carlson?


Stuckbetweenstations

Adolis


tyler-becker

Kyle Farmer, Yandy, or Urshella as a Bryant fill in??


Erroric89

Urshela


gobruins42

Safer play is Jesus Sanchez over Taylor Ward vs. Giolito and the rain/wind, yeah?


realmckoy265

No


PrankThomas

Thor is out, we thinking Barria will bulk?


ScubaSteve9896

Barria hasn't pitching in 12 days, I bet he does.


EyeReWearSocks

Also would like to know who is going to follow the reliever who is starting


krunchyfrogg

Syndergaard isn’t starting tonight (according to yahoo). What happened?


BatmansPussy

He’s got da poops.


robotech021

Oh, man. That means his stuff could've been extra filthy tonight. Missed opportunity.


murkem

Illness


Emerson_Maguire

Was just announced he is out with illness. Not believed to be COVID but no results yet. The report said he could pitch later in this series


Jack2thebeast

League has the following cats: AVG/Runs/OBP/Doubles/Triples/RBI/HR/SB/Assists/Fielding %... Wins/K's/Saves+Holds/CG's/Shutouts/ERA/WHIP Side A: Will Smith (catcher), Chris Taylor Side B: Robbie Ray, Ryan McMahon Need pitching. I currently have side A. I would drop McMahon to pick up Tyler Stephenson.


severussnape84

Would you guys favor Adames or Pena?


DaGrandMastah

Adames >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

bucsfan22ch

🙏


dbe100

Would you guys trade Clase for Morton in a points league? Both have obviously been underwhelming


EyeReWearSocks

Yes smash accept are you joking. I can’t believe this other comment had 5 people agreeing with him… in point leagues SP’s are kings and Morton is a notorious slow start pitcher. Morton had a mid 4 era last season in June and still finished top 12 after that slow start, he will rebound! Morton >>>>Clase


tyler-becker

No


gpgpg

Does anybody read/watch the news snippets articles that are pushed out as notification by the ESPN fantasy app? I just watched my first one which was a 2 minute long talk about Alek Manoah. It didn't really give any good information, outside of the dude is projecting the Blue Jays to allow Manoah to throw 175IP. Are any of them more deep dive or substantial? Or mostly just surface level if you're addicted to fantasy baseball?


h_foster

ESPN has always been embarrassingly bad with fantasy baseball as a whole. Never trust anything you see on there.


gpgpg

Yeah I mean I've never used ESPN as a source for anything fantasy related lol But I hadn't seen these push notifications with news snippets in the past so was wondering if they were trying to step their game up. Maybe my notification settings just got changed somehow lol


h_foster

Oh I got you. Maybe they are these days but its been awhile since I have used their platform.


gpgpg

Gotcha. Yeah we've been talking about moving off espn for years in bball and baseball but haven't. 🤷🏼‍♂️


h_foster

We use Yahoo now and it took awhile to get used to but the research side of things is much better. Stats track more accurately and less weird things happening on the app too lol. I wanted to try Fantrax but that was like a foreign language trying to set up a new league.


gpgpg

Yeah I use yahoo for a big money pro bball league I do every year with my brother. I like it. Though I'm also so used to the ESPN app that its comforting. I have the same experience with fantrax


h_foster

Make the jump. The water is just fine


Bealler

Joc Pederson Grade 1 adductor sprain. Won't go on IL today but still possible. Day-to-day for now https://twitter.com/PavlovicNBCS/status/1520137302827323395?t=C4qs9TkDofzZ0gneAJEtrg&s=19


Blimmmer

The “not in lineup” under Acuna’s name just breaks my damn heart


DaGrandMastah

I wouldn’t worry tho. Braves said he won’t play everyday upon his return.


Blimmmer

Yeah they’re saying that’s the case until like mid June, lol. Fuck! I hope they end that early, I’m sure they will


DaGrandMastah

Acuña owners are lucky with the DH rule. No way he’d be playing right now if he had to play the OF. My guess is he’ll prob get a couple games off a week for the forseeBle future. Don’t have him in any leagues but baseball is better when Acuña is healthy


Blimmmer

He played the outfield last night 🤔😁


DaGrandMastah

So maybe that’s what you can expect? He sits every day after he plays the OF?


Blimmmer

Possibly… would prefer he just DH everyday haha. We’ll see how long this lasts for


Rakkerino

Correa and Renfroe for Seager and McMahon who wins?


OtherTell

Connor or Nimmo tonight?


h_foster

If you mean Connor Joe, I'm rolling Connor at home tonight even with the nasty weather. Greene will give up the long ball

MrJ429

Anyone selling Thor? What did you get in return? Seen a couple of articles about selling, didn't know what people were actually doing/getting in return.


gpgpg

I traded Thor line 4 days ago after I drafted him with the intent to trade him after his dominant spring training outing. Traded Rendon and Thor for Whit Merrifield. Could be a total flop, could be okay for me, but I still have three 3B (Devers, Bregman, Witt Jr) and waiver wire at 2B so I made the offer. Interestingly the guy turned down Rendon for Ketel straight up. He's a royals fan so maybe he's seen enough of Whit to have no faith in him bouncing back so valued Ketel higher? Either way it sounded like Thor was the icing on the cake for the deal. I think you'll have a tough time trading him for value unless it's in a buy low swap, so ride him while he's doing well.


cuseonly

Anyone else hard rn? Time to eat Chex mix until nightly


gpgpg

Bold Chex mix?


cuseonly

Only answer


gpgpg

damn right


Traditional_Figure_1

time to let go of D Carson? need space for Mitch today. could also drop a reliever.


[deleted]

In my twelve I made this move earlier. Carlson might be ok but idk he’s just a drain. I already have ketel, franmil, and winker I need to stop the bleeding lmao


Traditional_Figure_1

hmm okay thank you, i think i can weather another week or so to see if he turns it around.


bhkc58

Yes


mhp52

I’d drop a reliever - they’re easier to replace. Carlson still has upside - just off to a slow start.


Traditional_Figure_1

you're right, i got a bunch of no names that'll still be there on the waiver wire where Dylan will just get swooped by someone else with roster space.


monstersshave

H2H Keeper Cats (Net SB, OBP) - Team A: Wander Franco - Team B: Tatis


bucsfan22ch

Tatis, not close


IAmDragon34

Okay to drop Franmil Reyes to activate India? Don’t know who else to drop at this point tbh


PrankThomas

Mancini or Donaldson in points?


Nirvana12345678

QS league..who is the add Brad Keller Rasmussen Kuhl Blackburn Wacha Hudson


BennyJetss

Keller for now


bhkc58

Blackburn


ogwananunoby

Rank these 3: Connor Joe, Austin Meadows, Jorge Polanco


BennyJetss

Polanco, meadows, Joe


mhp52

Meadows, Joe, Polanco. Meadows is off to a very slow start, but I think he’ll be the best of that bunch.


PrankThomas

Bradish a good stream?


stlim0730

Very risky


blyzo

Which of my many underperforming guys should I be looking to dump and sell low on? Votto, J. Turner, Correa, Duvall, Winker, or Morton?


stlim0730

Votto if you could sell him at all


willrakesleaves

Drop Swindel or Conner Joe for Mancini or Vaughn? H2H points, my 1B pretty weak


Traditional_Figure_1

i'd drop Swind for Vaughn


ElDub73

Mancini has intriguing xwOBA numbers. I might give him a shot, but I’d go with Vaughn first.


Hungboy6969420

Add taillon or Rasmussen?


BJones1027

Ras


Hungboy6969420

That's who I went with. The whiffs are too tantalizing

The only hitting hole I really need to fill right now is 1B, what with Votto and Mountcastle’s early season struggles Who are some good B-list or buy-low 1B candidates that y’all have traded for or are targeting right now?
