Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
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.
Mookie is having a hell of a year, but my vote for MVP would still be Jose Altuve. Mookie has an all star line up protecting him, where Altuve has alot of young players who are going through growing pains. Maybe 2 or 3 years from now it will be a talented line up but right now Altuve is more valuable to his team then Mookie is to his.
Thanks #$%$! Usually that is what I do. I've almost reached my minimum innings for the week and have several shaky SP's left. Only reason I'm asking on Hill. He blows it tonight the era & whip lead will probably be gone for week.
In a H2H league you need stats every day and as often as possible.
How exactly is a player on the DL (useless for 2+ weeks) going to help you in your stretch drive to hold on to 6th place for the playoffs? (I'll wait for the answer)
NL only h2h daily! I have R.Hill but the matchup this week is very close in Whip & Era(I'm leading closely in both right now). Sit Hill tonight vs. Giants and see how he does after a lengthy layoff? Thanks
12Team H2H Keeper league; keep 6. Currently in 6th place.
C Tillman just hit the DL, and I don't have any other available DL spots.... we only get 2, and those spots are currently occupied by T Story and McCullers. Should I drop Tillman? At this moment, he probably wouldn't be a keeper for me.
J Paxton (returning from DL today)
My current SPs are:
A Sanchez (in an NA spot)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Power–speed number or power/speed number (PSN) is a sabermetrics baseball statistic developed by baseball author and analyst Bill James which combines a player's home run and stolen base numbers into one number.
The formula is:
PSN= (2*HR*SB) / (HR+SB)
(It is the harmonic mean of the two totals.)
Power–speed number is displayed as a number with one digit after the decimal point.
James introduced the power–speed number in his commentary on Bobby Bonds, writing "it is so crafted that a player who does well in both home runs and stolen bases will rate high, and his rating is determined by the balance of the two as well as by the total."
* Simply put...this number will win you more fantasy baseball championships than any other number. In order to max out this number a player must do well in both HR and SB. If a player hits a ton of HR and steals zero bases then his power/speed number is 0. Similarly, if a player steals a ton of bases and hits zero HR then his power/speed number is 0. To do well...you need A LOT of both and to compile A LOT of both you either need to accumulate both in a hurry (rapid compiler of stats) or sustained over a long period of time (sustained compiler of stats). Note: Charlie Blackmon is about to be the only MLBer to be in the top 10 in power/speed number for each of the past 3 seasons.
1. Betts (BOS) 23.3
2. Altuve (HOU) 22.6
3. Myers (SDP) 22.5
4. Trout (LAA) 22.0
5. Upton (2TM) 20.8
6. Harper (WSN) 19.2
7. Goldschmidt (ARI) 19.0
8. Desmond (TEX) 18.9
9. Nunez (2TM) 18.5
10. Blackmon (COL) 17.5
If he is 100% healthy, what exactly would be the point of keeping him from playing? Are you suggesting that every team out of contention should just sit their star players to avoid injury?
I don't care how far out of contention a team may be. All that matters is whether the player is providing exceptional performance and value for my fantasy baseball team. I own both Votto and Goldschmidt. Neither player nor their team(s) will be attending the post season this year. Both are top 40 players at this point in the season.
I don't care whether the other manager improves their team. All I care about is improving my team. Not every trade is a win-win and even if the trade is a win-win all I care about is improving my team.
