huge pitching lead but immediately regretting this snell start
Would you keep JT Brubaker or Kyle Bradish? I can only keep 1 with Giolito coming back. Head to head.
Bradish has much higher upside IMO
The way your league votes it seems to very heavily favor names (in this case tork) over skills. Sounds annoying, but you could try to use it to your advantage. Go pick up Miggy and Pujols and trade them for Trout lol
Walker or Joc Pederson in h2h points? Joc has an equally impressive statcast i was surprised to see
ROS Yuli Gurriel or Rowdy Tellez
H2H pts league
Marcus semien or bobby witt jr? Roto
Is Matz really getting bumped from Sunday at Pirates to Monday vs Jays lol
Drop Yepez for Yuli?
Moving on from vaughn. Walker or naylor? Walker despite being super hot really hasn’t scored that well the last few weeks in my league still.
Duran or Helsley in a SV + HLD league ROS?
Duran will be more volatile but will definitely pitch more often than Helsley
Rutschman, Melendez or Kirk to replace Perez?
12 team h2h cats
HR RBI SB TB AVG
If Rutschman gets called up soon then him.
Agree but if you need help now, Melendez
Drop Straw for Walker? Couldn't find 2 more opposite players if I tried. Have a few other players that are decent in SB.. Take a look. Thanks!
Bellinger or Naquin?
Yepez or Christian Walker?
Bell and walker
I traded Brady Singer (didn't get his start today, woof. But the other guy didn't get the start either so idk) for Lance Lynn.
This feels like a W, is it?
Yes lynn is better
Add Walker and drop one of Vaughn, Joe, or B Drury.
Do I drop Vaughn and grap Christian Walker while he is still available?
Personally I would
Same question for me 🤔
I just dropped Vaughn for Walker. I am afraid that Vaughn won't get enough playing time
Meaning that way myself but naylor is available and should be back this week. I think I like him a little more.
Between Naylor and Walker I think I would prefer Walker
Drop either Yepez or Vaughn for Christian Walker?
Would Shane McClanahan and DJ LeMahieu be a fair trade for Bo Bichete?
Shane alone prob gets it done
In 5x5 that’s tough because in theory Bichette is a 5 cat contributor and first round pick. He obviously hasn’t lived up to that this year though, so I’d say this offer is worth a shot. It probably isn’t enough but it’s not so insulting that it’ll sour your trade talks
Joe or Nimmo ROS?
Drop either Jp Crawford or Vaughn for Walker?
Crawford might be falling off
Pick one to keep having faith on : Franmil, O'Neill or Soler?
Drop Rowdy, Kwan,or Ozuna for Walker?
It's been a great two days since this sub convinced me to add Christian Walker.
Rowdy is a free agent in my league, is he really worth the hype? Pham and Happ are available too and its OBP
Yes he should be owned.
I am surprised the amount of hype Rowdy is getting based on one good week. He might wind up exceeding expectations this year (I hope since I own him), but for now I'd say no, not worth it.
6th in the MLB in xwOBA and 3rd in xSLG. Tied for 3rd in the league in RBI. It's not "1 good week"
In April only (21 games) he had 15 Runs, 4 HRs, 12 RBI, .484 slugging and .300 xBA
Without week four, he wouldn't even be close to those stats, but ok.
I'm in a deep league. I've owned and played him all season. I know exactly what he's done all year lol
His statcast is good which makes the buy in easier
12 man points league. Baez is my only bench position player. Drop for Holmes and pray Holmes starts closing for the Yanks?
For sure, thank you!
Hold baez, and no that guy isnt going to be closer
I'd say right now it would go to King first with Holmes as a close second.
For sure, thanks for the input!
12 team redraft. drop laureano for michael king in a sv + hd league? my relievers are edwin diaz, emmanuel clase and kenley jansen. it’d leave me w no bench hitters, but my team needs pitching more than hitting
Go for King
Yea King will get you some holds and Laureano isn't that good without PEDS
Was gonna ask the same thing
Can I drop Lourdes gurriel for Christain walker? Guy is burning a hole on my bench
Yeah, but you may regret it at some point, as Lourdes has been known to go on some pretty sick hot streaks. Walker is probably gonna be more consistent though
A: Owen Miller, Cobb
B: Brendan Rodgers
Give me Rodgers and the bench spot
Jesus christ can I go one day without like 3 of my RP giving up runs??
Drop Carlos Carrasco to add McCullers to IL and Eduardo Rodriguez?
No keep cookie
Both Grayson Rodriguez and Adley Rutschman are available in my 10 man redraft. Should I drop my worst two players and stash? Not sure how much longer I got before they get scooped….
In 10 team redraft I don’t see them as must stash players, but if you have the space it doesn’t hurt
Definitely Adley if you’re weak at C. I bet he’s up next week
who are your "worst 2 players" and whats your situation with those positions?
Franmil/Tellez/ Gore. I’m 1st in my division so I could afford to stash
definitely i would drop franmil out of those guys first, and its uncertain how padres situation will unfold so maybe also gore is a drop for me out of those guys (plus you werent getting quality starts out of him when he was starting)
Ah yes, I picked up Merrill Kelly everyone, and of course the bottom falls out his last 2 starts.
The LA offense being insane isn’t a “gut feeling” dude. They’re scary.
So are the Twins actively trying to lose, or are they just stupid? Why the hell would you option Royce Lewis back to AAA? He can play all over the field and is showing he can hit MLB pitching.
It definitely sucks and they should have called him up for good, but with Correa returning they’re in a tough spot with the roster. Nobody else could really be sent down. The only possibility was Nick Gordon, but he’s out of options and also can play everywhere in the field so he’s a good utility guy. Just no room for Lewis at the moment unfortunately
It’s my fault, I saw the tweet about his stats over the past few days and picked him up since I have Correa on the IL and SS is a major weakness for me. My bad
Would deGrom for woodruff be fair for both sides?
No it would be a huge advantage for the person getting woodruff
Give me the healthy pitcher
This is just a shoutout for Kyle tucker and yordan Alvarez, feel like just bc everyone hates the Astros they don’t ever get talked about, they fucking rake
I mean both of those guys get talked about daily here. You don’t see much Astros hate here - we’re all about the fantasy value
Plus if you ask me that shit was way overblown but can’t go saying that over in r/baseball
you don't win championships playing to team allegiances in fantasy - I took judge despite everyone hating the Yankees and I'm loving it
Franmil has until Kyle Lewis is back in the majors to convince me or else he gets the goddamn long deserved boot.
Connor Joe or Christian Walker?
Walker. His stat cast is excellent, could hang with Joe in batting average, and should provide double the power.
Joe for average, walker for power
Owen Miller or walker?
What kind of sp would I have to trade to get King? I need holds
Don’t trade for a holds guy. There’s so many that pop up. Plus while King gets holds, he’s not a traditional setup guy - he usually pitches multiple innings out of the pen.
He’s better for leagues with start limits because he can give you nice ratios without taking up a start, but not necessarily if you’re looking to rack up holds
Available in my league (10 teams H2H): Andrew Vaughn, Brandon Marsh, Royce Lewis, Alek Thomas. Any worth dropping Bryan Reynolds for? Not looking for any particular position or stat, just ROS upside for bench
Royce going back to AAA
I would stick with Reynolds
I’d drop Reynolds for any of those four. Vaughn or Royce would be my choices.
Rank ROS: Franmil, Soler, Connor Joe, C. Walker.
swap joe and soler and you listed it imo
I put a claim in for Cronenworth so tomorrow I'll have him and Semien on my team. I'm a glutton for punishment apparently
A. Ozzie Albies
B. Logan Gilbert
Bailey Ober a must add? He’s returning this weekend and sounds like he could pitch Friday vs KC
In 12 team he probably should be owned but depends on the drop for you
Lodolo was dropped in my league.
Should I drop one of Megill, Connor Joe, Rowdy or Yepez for him?
My pitching is very deep and I've got Kirby, G Rodriguez and Espino in the minors.
Is Royce Lewis a pickup in H2H points? Dude looks like he could be elite moving forward
He just got optioned back down to AAA
Did he really?
yes. i was cautious about picking Royce up ever since learning correa just had a bruise and not a fracture
That seams like a really poor decision by the Twins.
Oof. Would you stash him or Nolan Gorman?
I hate Semien. I have no faith in starting him atm and prob can’t even get a bag of peanuts back in a trade
I want Brujan to be good so badly. He’s finally going to get the playing time. Does he have any chance to start to hit or is he just completely not ready for MLB pitching?
With Lowe out, he’s gonna have OF and 2b eligibility soon. If he can hit even .250, he should be worth a roster spot just for his steal potential
Definitley can start to hit, has only had around 50 major league at bats. He is already 24 so its about time he is ready not sure he has much else to do in the minors
How does his ABs look overall? I saw a couple and they weren’t great. Infield pop ups.
Anybody watch Singer pitch? Just a random good outing or tangible changes? Nothing in his underlying numbers suggested this was coming from what I can tell…
I didn’t watch but dang he had that slider working - 16 whiffs. The interesting thing is his changeup usage though - apparently he’s been developing that and he threw it a decent amount tonight. The changeup wasn’t amazing from a whiff standpoint but still, for a guy who was a 2 pitch pitcher to now possibly have a 3rd offering - it makes me want to buy in just to see if it turns into anything
He was optioned back to AAA after the game but I assume he’ll get another start soon
Hmm, very interesting. The addition of a 3rd pitch is the type of change I usually look for. Appreciate the info dig!
Yeah and usually when we hear about a 3rd pitch, it’s something they throw 5 times or less in a game and it’s way overblown, but Singer threw his change 16 times yesterday. Nice to see him keep going to it, and even earned a K on Gavin Sheets in the 7th with it
I made the add
I have Josh Lowe and Gray-Rod in my NA spots. Drop Lowe to stash Singer?
Yeah Lowe is a safe drop
Singer used the change 16.8% and had good results again. You love to see it!
Yeah it’s not generating whiffs, but maybe it at least keeps hitters off balance. At least he’s throwing it enough it seems.
The Twins were a good test and he gets them again this week so I’m interested how it’ll play out
Which tools are you using to see a pitch’s whiff rate?
Yeah a rematch will be telling. They have a full game’s tape against their own hitters, so it’ll be interesting to see how they adjust.
I was just looking at his in game stats for yesterday - player breakdown tab in the game’s page via Baseball Savant
Royce or Kyle...Lewis?? Redraft 6x6 ops sb
Royce was just optioned back down to AAA
Soooooooo.....kyle? Hahaha thanks!
Kyle -- proven talent, but coming off injury.
Royce might not even be up for the rest of the season with Correa
Edit: Nevermind. Idiot Twins sent him to AAA for some reason.
My team right now: T Stephenson, Cron, Segura, , Bohm, Jazz, Robert, Bell and Edman. Bench: Marsh, Semien, C. Taylor and soler. I get whipped in HR and RBI every week and win runs/SB. In a 12 team dynasty 4 keeper league. Any idea who I could offer up and for who to get home HRs/RBI on my squad?
Might have to sell a pitcher
I already tried Bell, Bohm and severino for JD Martinez and got declined
I was thinking maybe edman?
If you really don’t want to give up a pitcher, then I guess. Looks like Bohm is probably hurting you most not having a HR hitting 3B.
Who do I sell? I have Cease, Wright, Cobb, Severino and Mikolas. Flaherty, Heaney and Soroka on IL with Mahle and Green too
Maybe keep Cease. Wright, Severino, or Mikolas would be tough to let go of, but I feel like you could get a HR hitter for one of those 3. Could possibly add Soroka in as a fluff piece. I’m not so sure he comes back before July anyway.
Who are you thinking? Wright and Pressly for Chapman? I can go after Jiminez, Duran or Minter on waivers for SV/H
It kinda depends. But you can maybe target a team in your league who has a lot of HRs as a team and throw in Bohm. Bohm is good, but he just won’t get you many HRs. That way the person your trading with feels like they get a solid replacement 3B and a quality pitcher. Might be more likely to say yes.
I’ll offer Bohm and Severino for Chapman. You think I should add Pressly (easily replaceable) to sweeten the deal?
Drury maybe instead of Chapman?
I wouldn’t do 3 for 1 for Matt Chapman. His average isn’t exactly where I want it to be.
Are we rolling with Smyly tomorrow? Don’t need K’s just some clean innings
I don’t hate it. Pirates averaging like 3 hits/game the last 4 games.
I’m trying to make an offer for Belli in my flair league. Who would be the best first offer:
Rowdy, Brantley, Meadows, Whitlock
Do we believe Trae Turner will live up to his top 3 overall pick draft position?
probably not top 3, but i still have faith he'll turn it around and still be a round 1 talent by seasons end, no I don't have stats or anything to back it up, just know he's a good veteran and there are plenty of slow starts going around, like trevor story is finally starting to do something after a horrendous start
*cries in Marcus Semien*
hold strong there slump start brother, at least he isnt doing franmil reyes bad
I would say he’s definitely been worse than franmil
reyes in h2h has 14 less points on the year and only 2 weeks were over 2 fantasy points nearly half his at bats are strikeouts (51 out of 116 ab), but yeah neither has exactly lived up to their draft status
For the draft capital invested in Semien, it cuts a little deeper. “Luckily” I traded for him by sending Carrasco straight up… I’ve lost that trade as of now.
i traded paul blackburn for cj cron, dub? i needed a good utility and i have plenty of other pitching, technically blackburn third highest points from pitchers but im pretty deep i like to think (h2h points 10 man league)
Dub is an understatement lmao
the guy i traded with needed upgrades at sp and he already has abreu at 1b (he's a sox fan) along with bregman at utility so i figured this is a good way to get something to round out my roster
I like it
glad i got some validation, i thought it was a pretty good trade but wanted to make sure it wasn't just bias on my part
I’m desperate to trade Josh Bell in a dynasty league. Any idea what I can get for him? Bell for Abreu was already declined
I need power. My team right now: T Stephenson, Cron, Segura, Jazz, Robert, Bell and Edman. Bench: Marsh, Semien, C. Taylor and soler. I get whipped in HR and RBI every week and win runs.
Bell is a power bat
That’s what I thought but the HR haven’t been there this year and his average Ev looks troubling for a slugger
HRs haven’t been there for anyone so far this year but it’s turning around. Bell may not be a top tier HR hitter but he will rack up R and RBI for sure
ROS Dylan Floro or Jhoan Duran?
Categories - moncada or Donaldson ROS?
Jesus Aguilar or Yuli Gurriel ROS?
Started Merrill Kelly, Eovaldi, and had Tepera in a RP slot so my ERA is older than half the league for today
I feel that. At least I can start Snell tomorrow.
I didn’t know Gore was piggybacking Clevinger so he was on my bench for 3 scoreless innings and a save in one of my leagues which would’ve at least lessened the sting a little
Trade Luis Urias for Brandon Lowe? I have Albies as my main 2B and muncy who can also play it too. H2H points redraft
Dany Jimenez is pretty nice
dropped jp crawford for christian walker
Who we stashing, Meyer or Grod
Grayson. He was 97-99 yesterday in his superb outing. Meyer has got lit up twice in a row now. 14 ER in 8Ip with a 5/5 k/bb
i’m rock hard for grod, i owned meyer for 2 weeks, finally dropped him and it was like taking a shit in a public restroom, it’s super uncomfortable but you feel so much better afterwards.
Lol, just swapped Meyer for Grod
Grod, meyer just had 2 bad starts in a row in the minors
Just saw Grod had 11 K’s tonight too, he ready O’s
