    Buying low - slow starts

    A few pitchers seem to get struggling out of the gate, while others are shining. Could be shortened spring training, could be a sign of a tough season ahead. I am hoping to buy low. Who fits this bill?

    NL:
    Darvish?

    AL:
    Robbie Ray?

    Other ideas please

    To some degree Max Fried. He's been unlucky so far, could easily have a much better line. Lots of cheap timely hits and McHugh giving up the 3 run bomb in the first game scoring 2 inherited runners with 2 outs.

    I'd be a little shocked if someone was selling low on players due to underperformance at this point. Not playing at all is one thing, but a few bad games is another.

    I see it every year. It's not rational, but it happens all the time.

    How bout Kelenic or JRodriguez in redraft leagues? Kyle Lewis is coming back soon, if they don't right the ship, they could get demoted.

    I'm personally avoiding Ray. He has too much history being bad for me to just assume he's a different guy post 2021. And the velo drop makes that even more pronounced. Buy at your own risk.

    Not all leagues have had their draft yet, so info like this for sure has some value. We will have our auction on Saturday and I also love to buy slow starters at a discount. We are a keeper league, so a good number of the better players will be protected, but I am happy to see an 0-5 night on they good players who will be available.
