Rodon didn't even start. He came in relief, which is how they are using him, like they did Sale his first year, they have said this, it is not a secret. Yes, I would drop him for Desclafani.

Don't bother trying to trade Gattis, no one wants him. Trade Russell while value high, same for Tomas if he gets off to a hot start with Lamb now out. Springer should be on bench right now. Encarnacion not helping you right now, but last night looked good.

They will be using him from the pen initially, they have already said that - just like they did with Sale. He won't start at all this year unless they absolutely need him. That wasn't a secret.

I'd want Ramirez and one really good pitcher. You'll end up dropping Greene eventually anyway.

d'Arnaud has a broken hand. I would say Norris or Grandal, with an eye on Zunino if he heats up.

I'd rather take the shot with Russell. Peralta is what he is, and that's a useful but not great fantasy option.

In a dynasty, I'd say the Bryant side. Just a massive return that fills several positions with very good options long term. Just too much of a haul to say no to.

I would say given your 1B and 3B options, Alvarez sits on your bench most of the time. Go for it, you don't need him.

Appears they'll be using Rodon in the bullpen like they did Sale in his first year. I'd go with Salazar if he sticks.

Doesn't really matter in the end. Point is, I found a comp just as close statistically as yours of someone who turned out really well. So I proved you wrong, just as much as you "proved" yourself correct.

Notice that the state line for the UNK and Bryant are missing some numbers for the minor league portion. Namely the BB and K numbers. Bryant was 224K to 113 BB in the minors, Baez 354/92. Bryant adjusted to pro game, Baez has not. That's a HUGE difference that is very conveniently left off....and shows that the comp isn't all that good.
Mystery player 2 (165 games college): 174/45/195, 57 SB, 130K, 85BB, .365 AVG, .672 SLG Pretty good comp, yeah? (199 minors): 131/42/144, 34SB, 151K/70BB, .313/.572. Pretty good comp, yeah? Figure it out.
I can play the game too. This guy has had a very successful overall career so far and most people would be happy to have had him on their team for a few years. So he had similar stats to Bryant, and was/is successful. It goes both ways, just looking up numbers that support your view and ignoring the rest proves your ignorance and general foolishness.
Take that, SKIPPY.
