lol. Better with strop and rondon in bullpen, lester, arrieta and hammel are quality starters. They should be playing alcantara every day, and probably almora too. Maybe that will happen soon. Olt is a lost cause at this point, other than that Rizzo will be fine but they don't have the depth yet to be anything other than a 70-75 win team unless all the health and performance dominoes fall their way

Don't listen to #$%$, he plays in public leagues with no competition where players like pence get dropped and then 8-10 managers disappear by May. This happens to everyone who plays in competitive leagues - I've had teams in last place in May in a 20 team league and still win, both roto and h2h. it's a long season.

I'd stick with Cruz, I think everyone is overating the downfall and Seattle looks to have a pretty good offense overall. If I knew more about Jansen's injury it might change things.

You must be a royals fan:-) jk, poor moose is what he is at this point, unless someone can point out specific adjustments he's made like Bautista made the breakout isn't coming. If he has made adjustments then there is always a chance.

Duffy still developing, only streamer material in 12 team leagues maybe for 16 or 20 team leagues he has some value as a back end option. buchholz not really sure what to make of him, reminds me or Liriano like a box of chocolates you never know what your gonna get, I would pass on both.

I feel Harrison is the real deal, he may regress very slightly but he's still better than people give him credit for. I say you hold until his value is higher, I don't like Carter.

I didn't know Jimmy's middle name was calvin, guess you learn something new everyday! I like Jimmy, I hope he makes the hall as too few SS get in (see Trammel, Alan) and he's a good player

#$%$, but where are your 162 game averages? Only break those out when you try to make a point? I'm sure Rizzo will be ranked in the 20's at year end and while I own Duda and Pearce in one league each I don't have nearly that high expectations. c'mon

I'm not a huge fan of drafting closers, but I agree in competitive leagues you just have too. And closers today, particularly the top ones are generally better in ratio's and K/9 than those 15 years ago but like all pitchers it's a gamble on health and for those mid to lower tier options, performance.

Lucroy is solid, that avg. is backed up by fundamentals and 75/15/75 seems very fair with some upside. I would counter cobb for lucroy when cobb is healthy, depending on who my current C was I might consider Zimmerman for lucroy and rodriguez.
