Prize possession? LMAO! Much liek many awful fantasy baseball managers you suffer from what is described in behavorial economics as the endowment effect.
Semien is waaaayyyyy more valuable than Bryant.

Marcus Semein will go 20/20 this season and be a higher rated 3B than Kristina.
This is not rocket science. Semien pounds the ball and has plus speed, plus power, and plus contact skills.

How is Polanco a "buy low"? He is top 5 in MLB in saves and right now he is the best hitter on the Pirates (look at McCutchen and Marte right now).

Whoever has the baton is all that matters. You can throw a blanket over the top 30 100m runners in the world. They are all the same.

There is no such thing as a "top tier" or "elite" closer. They are all the same.
In the fantasy game...when chasing saves...much like the 4 x 100...all that matters is who has the baton.

We must really work on your linguistic skills. Also, conduct a Google search for "copy and paste" or pay more attention to the correct spelling of players' names.
That being said...Myers and Keuchel will benefit you more than Bumgarner. It is an awful offer because you are giving up too much. Unless you are in a points league that wildly favors starting pitching you never trade a bat for an arm.
Keuchel should outperform Bumgarner this year anyway. And Myers is finally showing why he was so hyped a few years ago.

Yes. Salazar should be owned and he will be a top 50 pitcher before the end of the season (most likely top 30).
The only thing holding him back is Cleveland's lousy defense (which is one of the three worst in all of MLB).

Guerrero is the more polished bat.
Russell is currently getting playing time.
No need to add Guerrero until you see him consistently getting starting gigs (or until an injury occurs to one of the Dodgers' starters).
Remember...real MLB managers don't manage their teams for your fantasy baseball interests.

Fantasy baseball is a hobby for me too. I am fortunate to be able to have fun with this hobby while working 60+ hours a week.
My sons are well taken care of...private school...and their favorite birthday spot is Chuck E Cheese followed closely by Monkey Joe's (or any bounce house). They are enjoyable little geniuses.
Sucks to be you, Skippy.

The drop here is Henderson Alvarez or Jonathan Lucroy, NOT Alejandro De Aza.
You don't drop a productive bat for another productive bat...you are just spinning your wheels and showing no tangible improvement.
Drop the dead weight.
You don't have a reasonable bench anyway...you NEED MORE BATS.
- Dick Strong Dick Strong Apr 25, 2015 10:44 AM Flag
I did answer.
They both suck.
Neither is a viable option for a remotely intelligent fantasy baseball manager.
Keep hope alive, Skippy.

Childish insults? You know what they say about the truth, right Harry?
Again, Skippy...your Friday night consisted of following ME on a message board dedicated to fake baseball. Congratulations! You're a winner....NOT!!!!
