25yr old, projections have him with a high 6 k/9 rest of season and about a 4.0ERA, I think you can ignore for the most part.

don't waste it on harang. Crawford I pegged before the season as a possible 9-12 Rank SS. He'll be useful, but I don't know about blowing a claim on him in a 12 team league. Lots more season to go, lots of injuries to navigate.

I liked Crawford before the year began, but the power won't last. He might hit 12 the rest of the way, and the BA will drop more towards .270. Depending on where he bats in order he'll be useful, but if you can get Lynn fo rhim I would do it. I don't think the guy would go for the other deal but you can try.

JAH is right, this year it's all Hanley. Hard to know what you'll get out of Russell long term. K's are a big problem right now, though it's been better last 40ABs (down to 25%). Maybe you get Arenado first year type production out of him for a year or so then??? I like him, but it's high risk/high reward. If I was in contention I'd take hanley.

I think his value rest of season is probably more like 10-12 SS RK, he'll have some really good games and dry spells, even Trout struggled his first 150 of so ABs.

I think so, he's given up a lot of HRs, probably he should have taken a little more time with the hamstring and pitched some more rehab and/or bad luck. either way his velocity isn't way down that I've seen still 91, he makes for a good 4 or 5 in standard leagues rest of season.

Do that, then worry about trying to trade kipnis or altuve later, you should get more for altuve...

Throw a couple bucks his way, maybe $5? Drop Forsythe. With Moreland off DL and Hamilton coming soon, not sure where Blanks will play either, so you could drop him also.

You need more. Would you be happy if you traded Price for say Bogaerts or Betts? Pederson or Bryant maybe yes...so far. Prospects are hit and miss. without knowing size of league, I'd want two uppier tier prospects and someone usable already at big league level.

I would be relatively high. BABIP is not outrageous and could go up, he looks like a legit .290 hitter. Power is not going to be that high, maybe 10HR ROS but good BB% means lots of Runs, I'd trade Reyes for him right now.
Manager had a stroke, this team is in last. It's a rebuilding job, but don't feel bad I'm in 19th as Stroman, Darvish and Cobb have all gone down for me. 7x7 league with HLD, OPS, QS, XBH. 7-9 keepers, last team picks first every round. Very competitive league, need a manager who will fill out lineup this year and work to improve going forward. tantra1232003 at yaho

No, Donaldson is a top 3 3b, in a 20 team dynasty league I'd want one quality player back like a Calhoun or someone young, and two top prospects who are more MLB ready, like A. Russell.

Morales, though a lot of Parades production came from the BOS series and their pitching sucks. I would expect him to continue to hit
