Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Davis. The only thing that has held him back all year is lack of playing time. With Gomez likely out for at least the next 2 weeks, Davis should be an every day starter.
Yes, it's legal and okay. It's probably not going to be very popular, but there is no reason he can't do this. I even understand doing so if he thinks it sets him up with better matchups during the playoffs. This same type of things happens in real sports toward the end of a season all the time.
Need to drop one of these SP to pick-up a replacement for CarGomez while he's down. Which one would you drop?
Lynn, Ryu, Fiers, Shields, Fister, Gray, Cole, A.Wood
While we're at it, I can add any position to replace Gomez as he was UT anyway. I'm leaning toward Vargas, but who would you pick up out of these:
K.Vargas, Revere, Blackmon, Chris Davis, Arenado, Betts
I have a 1 seed and a bye in my 8 team H2H league. Looking at a 4 or 5 seed in our 12 team league (hoping to catch up to you this week).
I'm also in 1st place in a small roto league. I much prefer H2H for the record.
Yadi. He's settling back in fine at the plate since returning with a couple of base this already. Plus, the Cards offense is picking up and the team is surging. I always prefer players from teams that are contending and surging this time of year.
I agree. LaRoche has been really steady this year, but steady isn't always the best thing at playoff time. Go with the guy who might win a week for you.
I agree that Kazmir is a slight upgrade over Sanchez in that trade. Myers is likely a downgrade from Harper, the tough question is how much? Bryce having 3 homers in his last 12 games makes me wonder if he's going to finish strong. Whereas Myers is still an unknown.
You are just saying this to entice me into taking your Harper for Myers offer. You're a slick one, Harry!
I am considering it, honestly. But Harper has finally been Harper again recently so it's tough to pull the trigger. Let's put it to a vote here. Who wins this trade people? Harper/Anibal Sanchez for Myers/Kazmir. I'm leaning toward sticking with Harper/Sanchez, but I could be persuaded.
No inside knowledge, just don't miss a Cardinal game. Neshek has been the 8th inning guy and has been lights out and has strike-out stuff. Just get the sense they trust him more, and like Maness better in a role more suitable to a ground ball pitcher.
Think Matheny will continue to be very stubborn with Rosenthal and give him every chance. That said, if he does lose the job it will be to Neshek not Maness.
I do not like that Stanton trade for you. Cespedes for Shark was a good move, but losing Stanton and Gio for Sale and Cobb hurt your team.
I like Tulo better. Thinner position. What kind of an idiot dropped those guys rather than getting some trade value from them?
I try to be fluid with at least one pitching slot. I can't do too much streaming as we are limited to 3 roster moves per week, but I try to play the hot hand, take some fliers on guys, etc. I decided to give Lackey a shot when he moved to the NL and I like his matchup tonight against SD. If he reverts to his AL ways I won't hesitate to pick up another f/a. Plenty of good streaming options are always available in an 8 teamer.
Thanks. I can see value with all of the names. I was leaning toward Davis as well because of his potential to go off and his recent return of power. Butler has also been good of late, though, and is getting ready to visit Colorado and Texas. Sandoval and Arenado have been solid too and Polanco is looking good again. Tough choice in an 8 team league.
The Royals are red-hot and heading out on a roadtrip that goes to Colorado and Texas, so Perez may just be breaking out of that slump soon. I wouldn't use the waiver claim on Mauer, who even hitting well is probably not going to give you anything but average.
I'm dropping Cargo in an 8 team h2h. Which one of these F/A should I pick up for an open Utility Slot:
REST OF MY TEAM BELOW:
OF) Alex Gordon
SP) Sale, Cueto, Gray, Fister, Shields, Ryu, Lynn, Wood, Lackey, Cole
RP) Dolittle, Melancon, Casilla, Cishek
