    I want in to your league of panic-trading Sale owners. To join the choir, either of those trades is just silly and bad.

    He's going to be a great fantasy guy for a long time. However, I don't think the K rate and swinging strike rate and chase rate (O-swing) are sustainable to be a great real baseball player. He...

    Alas, "most" leagues are mixed, and probably far more shallow than the ones that most of us play here. In only-leagues, one closer is a bigger deal than in a mixed league---as your comment shows--in...

    I am not saying that your offer was horrible. Pham is great. I was just noting that Pham wasn't really what he needed.

    You obviously took the right trade---with your pitching, doing option one and giving up Berrios is silly (E-Rod + Herrera + Givens is way less than Berrios). I'd say it is a shame you couldn't find...

    In other bullpen news, the Braves bullpen would not get worse if I were added to it. Unless blown saves are a category, I would advise just dropping all of them.

    Until tonight, this was irrelevant. The other two saves were on Monday and Tuesday when both Alvarado and Castillo were unavailable (stated as so by the Rays) after having thrown a bunch of pitches...

    It is unlikely, but if Chavis is hitting and Devers isn't and the defending champs are struggling, you never know what happens. Most likely, however, both play because people get hurt.

    The four home runs is about 2 HR short of a 40 HR pace. The runs and RBI's aren't his issue. It isn't JD who needs to wake up, its the rest of the Red Sox lineup that needs to wake up.

    They seem close to me since seven hitting cats reduces the value of Desmond's steals. I would think that positional considerations should make the decision given how close they are.

    Looking back, maybe it was positive hyperbole. If he comes back up at some point (which is likely barring injury), maybe he'll hit well enough to get the average up to .175.

    There might not be anything at all regarding Kimbrel. And really, it is the agent who looks bad in this one. Certainly no rule of MLB to not offer wildly team-friendly contracts. Acuna's deal was...

    I've heard people speculating that this friendly deal could be part of a two-part method of getting a good contract for Kimbrel with the Braves. Of course, that would be silly because Albies would...

    The three cheap years of Albies were worth a lot---they were worth Davis and Sale. Now if any fantasy league allowed Albies to be signed cheaply for nine years, you might have sold too low on him.

    Actually, it's worse for Albies than this. It is actually 7 years, $31 million, with two option years of $7 million each--the $35 comes from the $4 million buy out for the first option year. He...

    Can't they just amputate the toe and get him back sooner? I mean seriously.

    Our Jerry DiPoto returned this year after a one year absence. That will definitely help. ;)

    I still feel silly for buying the same guy again and again.

    But if you don't get them with $1 more, you are no worse than you were before. This strategy can screw you, too. Sometimes you even end up buying seven versions of the same player. Sigh.

    I'd toss Wood back. He gave up enough ding-dongs in LA, and now he is in Great American Small Park. I wouldn't be too worried about getting him back at auction, either.

    That's weird, but probably not good for you. Sometimes auction dynamics cause that...as a thread I will post soon will attest to, although that may have just been my being stupid, lol.
