    Traded away Matt Manning for Taylor Trammell in a dynasty. I'm real high on Manning but felt like that was a crazy good return for a pitching prospect. Although my fantasy pods seem kinda down on Trammell so :idk:

    Right but I'm not a fan of 5x5. I like points like fantasy football, not categories.

    Right, but there are points leagues available too. Single is worth X, HR is worth Y, SB is worth Z, K's earn negative points. Win is worth X, hold is worth Y, Save is worth Z. IP are worth points and ER get negative points. Just a different way to play and I prefer it bc thats what I've always done.

    Just fucking with you. Yeah, I do like H2H and points better than Roto because there is more of a chance for a team who starts slow. You can run away with Roto quickly, but that’s only fun if youre within reach.

    I have a draft in 30 minutes. I guess I'll avoid him with my 6th pick if he's still there.

    This league would be a bad one to judge it off. This group is mainly NFL and NBA fans that just do this league to pass the time. Works for me bc I've won it 4 of the last 5 years. $150 buy in too so I'm a fan. But yea I doubt everyone in the league is aware of Scooters injury.

    Got him in the 10th last night in my keeper draft (6 players kept per team) so more like 16th round in a redraft.

    I thought so too. He went in the same round at DeJong and one round before Moncada. I snagged Shaw in the 5th/11th with 2B eligibility in yahoo to hold court.

    Guess it depends on your bench/IL settings, but I'd be concerned about holding him through additional IL stints as well as diminished performance ...

    I think half the season with a FA and half the season with him will be significantly better than a full season of the guy you take in the 15th

    Not saying there isnt a price, more so speculating whether or not you get that half a season of typical production at all. Broken bone I'd be more inclined, hamstrings/groins/obliques :gross:

    Had my 10-team keeper draft tonight. BA, HR, RBI, BB, SB, R for hitters. W, QS, SV, ERA, K/9, K/BB for pitchers.

    C - Danny Jensen
    1B - Joey Votto
    2B - Gleyber Torres
    3B - Justin Turner
    SS - Alex Bregman
    IF - Corey Seager
    OF - Ronald Acuna Jr.
    OF - Juan Soto
    OF - Michael Conforto
    OF - Mallex Smith
    UTIL - Miguel Cabrera
    UTIL - Victor Robles
    BE - Rafael Devers
    BE - Ryan McMahon

    SP - Trevor Bauer
    SP - Walker Buehler
    SP - Shane Bieber
    SP - JA Happ
    SP - Jose Quintana
    RP - Andrew Miller
    RP - Arodys Vizcaino
    RP - Matt Barnes
    BE - Tyler Skaggs
    BE - Hyun-Jin Ryu
    BE - Chris Paddack

    Our rule of having to keep 2 pitchers thins out that crop in a hurry, and I ended up drafting my entire line-up (sans catcher) before I took a single pitcher (Bauer, Buehler were keepers). Pitching could be dicey and I'm not sure where I'll end up on SBs, but that line-up is as good as any I've ever drafted.

    I had a similar strategy in my 12 team H2H, and then had Chris Sale fall to me at like 21st overall. Maybe the joke is on me, but it seemed crazy not to take him.

    My infield is kinda trash though and I had Matt Olson as my 1B, which already has me kinda fucked.

    When do guys become IL eligible? Should be soon right? I have Olson and Didi and need to free up spots.

    It's absurdly late unless they changed a random rule. They technically don't have to make a roster moved until a day before the designated time they need the space.

    So did Olson. I have no clue why a team would want to wait.

    That's my initial plan, although I should have taken him. Wasn't thinking.

    The following are all on my waiver wire after the draft in my league:

    Colome
    Holland
    Strop

    Are any of them worth dumping Barnes, Vizcaino or Miller for? Anyone know if Vizcaino is going to be the long term closer in ATL, or what Miller's role in STL is?

    If healthy Minter would be the closer in ATL I believe. I also don't think that's a steady situation either way. Could easily acquire someone if ATL is in the hunt at the deadline too.

    Really like this team. I think Smith and Robles should give you enough of a jump on SB, and you have several other guys that should chip in 10-15 each.

    I don't know how much I'm going to play him early, but I'm kind of all in on Devers this year as a 3B sleeper. That position is so deep and I got him in the 150s, I think, but he's still so young and has massive talent surrounded by vets. Hope Cora gives him more PT against LHP this year.

    Where are people on Sonny Gray as a bounce back guy? Seems like he should do better away from NY, but that park sucks.
