Keep an eye on what the Redsox do with Yoan Moncada. If Benintendi injury is serious enough to shut him down for the rest of the year Moncada could take his place.

Na, instead I'd try to use it on that bum Kris Bryant who at least has multiple position eligibility. Although, nothing good comes out of Chicago..

Shouldn't have been vetoed, who knows how Kershaw will be next year. Your giving up talent and receiving a guy who is done for the year. I hate jealous owners who feel the need to veto.
His quality starts were all in June, His last 30 innings all in July he has a 4.80 ERA, and 1.27 Whip with 2 wins. Not to mention he is on a team that just dumped half their bullpen and are committed to rebuilding. He is a stream pitcher, I'd dump him and find the next hot arm.
I really think you can get more for Story in a Dynasty league. I don't know how big your league is but he will easily be a top 50 ranked player next year. Neither Cain or Bautista will give you any offensive boost currently.
I'd dump Pineda easily, been absolutely horrible and not worth owning right now in a standard league. Who are you referring to with "Made"? I would be also tempted to drop Tulo, he would be serviceable on another team but you have Seager and Nunez. I'd let him be someone elses problem.
I think this year AL MVP voting will be a tight one, so many worthy candidates. Just too many to list. Personally I would pick Altuve.
As for the NL MVP Daniel Murphy is the clear front runner, giving the Nationals back to back MVP winners. Although Kershaw is worthy of taking the MVP and CY young again.

Single season keep what you have, keeper then I would do it. Blackmon has been better then Betts as of late, and if Blackmon didnt miss the month of April then he would easily be a top 20 player

Well if you are tired of being burned by Braun's injuries you are going to hate Stanton. So many injury risk players all in one deal, at least Stanton is the youngest. I would hold off since Pence is coming back soon, but I wouldn't blame you if you accepted. If you do accept move Stanton in the off season.

Those are all good options for OF/3b but how can you accept donaldson when Bryant numbers are almost identical? Sure Villar/Nunez have more SB then Bryant by alot but he trumps them all in runs/hrs/rbi's to the point he almost doubles to triples them in those categories.
I'm sorry, I understand you prefer perfect 5 stat players with a strong emphasis on stolen bases but SB is only 1 category, a power hitter of Bryant's capacity can and has carried 3 to 4 categories by himself in some weeks. Villars, Nunez and Myers do not have that ability. I love value players as well but ignoring Bryant or criticizing him is just closed minded.

This is tough...I think I would go with Grienke. Gordons not able to come back from the suspension until July 29, who knows how long it will take him to get back in the every day groove. I think Grienke will be more of a contribution for your rotation. Although I don't know the time table of Grienkes return either just hoping its not that long.

Yeah, I would wait for more. Don't get me wrong I like Yelich (I own him on my dynasty) and Kipnis but I think someone of Miggys caliber get bring in a better return.
Scouts still like Gallo for a reason, i believe he is considered a top 5 prospect. Hes just someone personally I avoid. Goodluck.

Couple of things,
1. I do not trust the future of Joey Gallo. He has a strike out rate of 34% in the minors. If he does that in the minors how much will it be when he is in the majors?! He reminds me of Mike Olt.
2. I like Yelich, but I feel you could look for more for Miggy. I def would not be adding to it to sweeten the deal. Miggy would be great for anyone going to the playoffs.
