    • Is Drew Smyly's hot streak over? Is he safe to drop?

      Here are some FA options:
      erick aybar
      ike davis
      espinosa
      ryan roberts
      delmon young
      andino
      gaby sanchez
      reimold
      bay
      plouffe
      gregor blanco
      rizzo
      revere
      brian roberts
      aoki
      brett wallace

      there are more but those are the best options in my opinion

      I'm actually highly leaning towards one of the DLed orioles or plouffe

      my team:
      C: mccann
      1B: fielder
      2B: michael young
      3B: hanley
      SS: starlin
      INF: lawrie
      OF: melky (currently chris young)
      OF: austin jackson
      OF: choo
      OF: brantley
      UTIL: presley
      BN: laroche
      BN: chris young
      DL: kemp (DL)

      SP: gio, peavy, sale, romero, tim hudson, parker, smyly, bauer (NA), holland (DL)
      RP: chapman, putz, broxton, wilhelmson, grilli
      DL: fister (DL)

      12 team h2h non keeper 6x6 (5x5 plus OPS and HLD)

      who should i drop smyly for, if anyone?

    • Would it be stupid to drop Adam LaRoche from my team? Here are some possible options to add (No particluar order except for SP before RP, I want to add a pitcher, I have a lot of confidence in my offense):

      Starting Pitchers:

      Nathan Eovaldi
      Daisuke Matsuzaka
      Brain Matusz
      Francisco Liriano
      Drew Hutchison
      Aaron Harang
      P.J. Walters
      J.A. Happ
      Wei-Yin Chen
      Phil Hughes
      Jake Westbrook
      Bartolo Colon
      Jerome Williams
      Homer Bailey
      Henderson Alvarez
      Dillon Gee
      Andrew Cashner (looks like hes transfering to SP)

      Relief Pitchers:

      Jordan Walden
      Brian Fuentes
      Stephen Pryor
      Brad Lidge
      Joel Peralta
      Josh Lindblom
      Randy Choate
      Bobby Parnell
      Juan Cruz
      Aaron Crow
      Sean Burnett

      My Team:

      3B: Hanley Ramirez
      SS: Starlin Castro
      INF: Brett Lawrie
      OF: Melky Cabrera
      OF: Shin-Soo Choo
      OF: Michael Brantley
      OF: Chris Young
      UTIL: Alex Presley
      BN: Adam LaRoche
      BN: Austin Jackson (DL)
      DL: Matt Kemp (DL)

      SP: Gio Gonzalez, Jake Peavy, Chris Sale, Ricky Romero, Tim Hudson, Drew Smyly, Jarrod Parker, Trevor Bauer (NA), Derek Holland (DL)
      RP: Aroldis Chapman, J.J. Putz, Jonathon Broxton, Tom Wilhelmsen, Jason Grilli
      DL: Doug Fister

      12 team H2H non keeper 6x6 (5x5 plus OPS and HLD)

      Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    • Who should i start for the week Goldschmidt or Furcal? Also which SP Pettitte or Lynn?

    • Right now he has a 6.00 ERA, a 1.58 WHIP, is 2-7 and the team is 2-11 in games he has started. In short...he sucks right now.

      But let's take a better look. The guy is a 2 time Cy Young winner, consistently K's 200+ every year (so we know he has the stuff), is still only 27 and is TIM LINCECUM.

      Sure he is having a bad time of late but does that mean we should all be throwing on the towel where he is concerned? Is there not anyone out there who actually believes he is going to turn this around?

      I have just been offered BTTJ (I won't say what for) and I am finding it hard to look away. 2 months ago this trade would have been a no brainer. What are your thoughts guys? I would love to hear them.

    • What sort of level of OF (by player name) could I get in return for Lincecum and Ichiro? And at what point do I just hold onto Lincy in hopes he turns it around vs taking another OF I don't really need? I have Braun, Prado, Craig, Morales and Ichiro. Hoping to package one with Lincy to get someone I'd actually play in return.
