Thread: Rolling dice

  1. #1

    Rolling dice

    For some obscure reasons involving keeper rules, I will likely want to pay the option on one of the following. Based solely on what we can expect in 2019 and 2020, which one would you want?

    16 teams - starting 22 with bench of 8. OBA and Holds.

    Mychal Givens
    Austin Riley
    Lucas Giolito
    Greg Holland
    Ryan O'Hearn
    Teoscar Hernández
    Ervin Santana
    Scott Kingery

    Possibly stash Riley on the bench. If he gets traded he could be up fairly early.

    actually not that convinced, given peripherals, but his upside is the biggest and he has so much experience

    OK. Given the dice roll situation, that fits.

    I just realized I can throw Scott Kingery in the mix. I doubt that changes things for anyone, but there it is.

    Does this mean that there is a separate category for holds or a saves + holds category? If it is the latter, definitely forget about the closers, they aren't worth enough in those leagues. If the former, I would think Givens is the safest bet; he more or less has the job already, and the O's have no reason to ditch him quickly. The rest of them look pretty ugly. Holland scares me because he needs both a job and to not suck. O'Hearn might give some production since he seems to have the job and no reason to be dislodged.

    Separate categories for holds and saves. I remember you were high on Givens last spring. He didn't work out last year.

    O'Hearn was on my list for exactly that reason. I was thinking similar things about Kingery. Either would be a cheap cut, but have value if they perform at least minimally.

    Kingery isn't a bad cheap add, either. Same with Givens. He may suck, he may not. Tough with such small sample sizes for relievers. At least, even as a closer, he can't have much pressure on that team, lol. But yeah, he's burnt me before, too.
