Good targets. Just look for a team that has a lot of closers and needs a 2b. I'd probably turn down britton/pedroia and accept ramos for him but neither offer is crazy.

Most good prospects are already in the player pool. Unless your league has a restriction that says a player is only added to the pool once they are on the active roster I would grab archer.

You can do better trading miggy. Kipnis isn't someone to target if you are rebuilding. Yelich maybe, but he hits a lot of ground balls. Someone near the top must want to sell some young players/prospects for miggy. Definately focus on bats.

I think I agree with most below. 112 keepers, if we are drafting for 2017 out of spring training I imagine that is about where Harvey would go, maybe lower. I'd keep dozier or Benintendi as your last keeper, mike laid out the others below.

I think i'd want villar/braun. Tim Anderson doesn't look like a great long term solution. Villar's average may drop, but at least he now warrants a full time job and brings speed to the table. Lots.

I see this as kind of a wash. I don't think much of Anderson or Reed, and I'm kind of lukewarm on Wacha and Fotzy....so Velasquez for Taillon it just doen't move the needle for me at all.

Players get hot, then cold, happens all the time. Harper's BABIP is .252, he could probably easily post a .310 mark which would put his average at .300 or .310 rest of season. As for the power, the HR's often come in bunches as do the RBIs. If healthy he's an easy top 10 and probable top 5 finisher in the rankings end of season.

I think he'll be better 2nd half. W's shouldn't be too hard to come by as most of the reason why Tampa is so bad is SP this year (and bullpen 2nd). K/BB scares me with him, and WHIP...but he should be better. he's smart enough to figure it out.

Dusty Baker, managing the nats into the ground one bad decision at a time. Trea probably won't play enough to warrant anything in mixed leagues.

Way too much. one, you don't really need donaldson, so why pay for him? R. Davis should be had easily, maybe for Winker even. You also need SP IMO

Given it's a deep keeper league and all players will be kept next year and fowler is injured, You won't know about this one for a few years for sure.

Roto league, should have specified. Yeah, two C's is not necessary, just a shame to drop D'arnaud in a dynasty but he's always injured anyway.
15 team dynasty league with OBP and HLD. I need to drop someone to pick up another pitcher. Eventually when some folks come off the DL like Darvish I'll need to drop more than one, possible. Please rank in order who you would drop first. Entire O provided.
A. Russell, ss//2b
O. Arcia, NA
The obvious answer is 1) Dickerson (but I worry that his BABIP is low and will increase - at least he#$%$ HRs') and 2) one of the C's. Both have been bad and injured

So far, Buxton looks like a bust. But with that said, the Twins minus well play him regularly the rest of the year. As long as they commit to him and give him positive feedback maybe he figures things out. That, and maybe get his eyes checked lol.

Maybe, but in a one year league if you are missing out on a duffy, or shoemaker, or bauer then there is a high degree of opportunity cost as well.
