    NL only h2h daily 10 team! Might need to make a trade soon. Hahn and A.Simon would be the SP's I'd be willing to make trade with. My ONLY question here is which one should I keep for ROS? Both could be innings limit casualties,Hahn probably more so than Simon. Any thoughts or opinions welcomed as always.

    Keeper I might go for Martinez over Kelly! Martinez,if I'm not mistaken, was being groomed as a future SP by Cards. Not to say Kelly isn't in the future mix but Martinez was supposed to be the one. Stroman I like,especially for a Keeper. Those,IMO, are the 2 I'd keep. Seems others like Carlos also. I play in a NL only so to be honest I'm not that up on McHugh once he left Mets. Maybe others can give you more precise info on him.

    2014 HOME RUN DERBY

    I fully agree here,John! The derby is now a Big Spectacle and with multiple rounds,like it has been, players can get hurt or just lose their swing. Old days it was 4-5 guys from each league,total them up and you have a winner. Now you have to have "Corporate Sponsers",ESPN live for 3 hours,etc.

    Need more trade help ...please

    Ryan: I figured since JD is on a roll and Lynn is pitching a lot better than Miller others would think your getting the short end. I mean Miller is a risk right now but Billy H. is what you were looking for so I was ALL IN on the trade. Now you could flip Miller for another SP or add one too. At least with Miller part of trade you do have options and your not stuck with him. I'd give Miller a little rope and see if things change 1st.

    78: It's going to take a lot more to secure Abreu,man! Why don't you list your FULL roster and they may help everyone give you better trade pieces,OK!

    Bryan: Go Noles' from Central Fla,,man! I own Martinez and my personal view is that Carlos & Kelly are fighting for 1 spot. When Wacha returns that's it. Now S.Miller could be pitching himself back to AAA right now but who knows how that'll turn out. I like the idea of Stroman. You'll be asked here so it's best you do it now: List what kind of league your in and your other SP's. People need to know that to give you better advice.

    Greg: trying to rest these type of injuries is BS by Yankees or any other team. You've got $155 mil wrapped up in this guy,he's young so why not just take care of the problem now and get him back sooner. I understand the hope and rest bit fully, and maybe it'll work,but if they do put him back out there chances are things could go worse. IMO I wouldn't take the chance with a prized asset.

    I am bud! I'd of liked to seen Papi or trout too. Alvarez would have been a obvious choice as that's all he can do is hit HR's. Tulo would be nice but I guarantee he'd hurt himself somehow and be out for part of 2nd half. And why isn't Cespedes defending title. That's BS there.

    Ryan: Given what you need I'd go for it. JD Martinez could keep this up/or maybe not. I own Lynn and he's been a decent SP so far. Shelby Miller I have no idea what his problem is so far. Hamilton is coming on strong last 6 weeks and be will a positive upgrade for what you need. Getting Cargo back should also help with your HR/RBI's. Know he's been missed by a lot of guys. If Miller doesn't get straightened out soon you can always try to flip him again or go with another SP. I'll probably be the only one agreeing with this trade but you're addressing needs which is important to reversing a 3-8-3. Good luck,man!

    Greg: Had about same nos. with 7 SB's going into Sat. last week before C.Dickerson hit a HR for Rockies. Still ended up with only 1 HR.

  • Estrada will go to bullpen and Nelson into starting rotation.

    Jigga: Hopefully I'll get my full waiting's worth this time around! Hope he can come of the shoot nicely and stick for good this time. H.Bailey went down today for ? so a full time nelson would be greatly needed.

    SPs to Stream This Week

    If you can,and they SP on different days, maybe use both Koehler & DeGrom. deGrom #$%$ me off as I had him in an NL only h2h and he went on a bad streak so I dropped him. My Grandson added him and he does a 180 on me. Good K's SP too.

    PSA: Jimmy Nelson and Saturday

    by dave Jul 10, 2014 12:59 PM
    David Vest David Vest Jul 10, 2014 3:15 PM Flag

    Bryan: I added J.Nelson 2 1/2 months ago when he made his lone MLB start vs. Marlins. He was superb that day and nothing has changed at AAA since. Has been lights out at AAA and I think he's very much worth an add. I have kept him on roster as a N/A with no N/A slot. I'm in an NL only h2h 10 team so SP's are worth a lot to our league. I've been counting on a promotion for a few weeks now. Now I also own C.Martinez. He's just getting to the point he's fully stretched out now. Has been fairly good so far. His situation is a little more shaky than Nelson. J.Kelly is back(I owned him too till his long injury DL stint). He's a very good SP himself. If Wacha comes back or Cards trade for a good SP Martinez & Kelly could be in a fight for last SP fight. 50/50 on winner. Stroman I don't know a lot about,sorry. Being in a NL only I don't follow AL very much. Have heard fairly good things about him but I haven't seen him pitch.

    Glenn: I own papelbon and I added Giles last week with my streaming spot I use. He's looked good so far and is in the mix if papelbon goes. I'd say he's the favorite so I went for it.
