Clutch and Jones even
Springer over Cain ( Cain on DL )
Scherzer over McCullers and Harris ( Scher should be 18 game winner Harris may save 20 tops and McCullers may win 13 if he wont go on the DL again )
so I like hitting and I take Springer over Scherzer
I own both Duvall and Stanton. Only have owned Stanton for last 22 games as I bought him super low... Stanton is pretty clearly the more valuable player.....
In my league (no batting average...instead uses OBP and slug%), Stanton is killing it since I got him:
22 games, .376 OBP, .631 Slug %, 18 runs, 7 HR, 18 rbi
Duvall, for comparison only, has also done very well, but that OBP is so #$%$: in 41 games for me, .277 OBP, .537 slug%, 28 runs, 13 HR, 40 RBI

I'm in first place and now favored for my 2nd title after a trade for Josh Donaldson. I think I could use one more SP but I don't really want to pay a premium. I might try and trade a prospects for someone old and useful, like maybe John Lackey or someone like him. The only stat I'd be worried about is SB, but I'd like to wait and see if/how much help Trae Turner gives me before I address that in trade.
Is there any other areas I should focus on? Also there is about 10 players available at over 2% ownership, all of which are back up catchers and pitchers with ERA's well over 5. So there is nothing in free agency.
and with Doolittle likely being traded Ryan Dull looks like the guy to keep an eye on.
2.01 ERA, 0.72 WHIP, 9.61 K/9, 5.88 K/BB. And he was just as dominant in the minors.
It's unfortunate, because he is a pretty talented player not just in fantasy but in real life. Murphy is having a career year, Espinoza who looked like he was ready to be set down just starts crushing the ball, and Werth is shockingly healthy. His only avenue to get on the ML roster is CF and he has to overtake Revere, Taylor and anyone else Dusty wants to throw in his way. IMO Washington has always been horrendous when it comes to management of their prospects. I don't think its just Dusty, I think its an organization as a hole.
Looking for two replacement owners in h2h one win point league and one replacement manager in h2h league. Contact me via gmail account through Superd45014. Both are keeper leagues.
Trea Turner is 6'2 Mookie Betts is 5'9...Trea Turner doesn't have any power and will lucky to have a double digit homerun season in his career yet have 18HR at the break like Betts.
I just setup a 12 Team Super Flex PPR League with a $25 entry Fee. I have been a commissioner for over 20 years and wanted to create a new league with a super flex position. The waivers system provides a budget that each team has manage throughout the year. I know how to mange leagues where there is almost no controversy and a whole of fun by all. Come and join for a $25/Team. Welcome aboard.
Likely because the league was not full or someone dropped out to make uneven amt of teams....drafts will be delayed for either of these reasons.
