Thread: 2K20: Tampa Bay Rays

  1. #351
    Bump for 2020...

    Anyone around who can provide wisdom on:

    - Is Brandon Lowe locked in as the starter at 2B, barring ST injuries or wholesale suckitude?
    - Any ideas how 1B will shake out between Choi, Nate Lowe and Jose Martinez?
    - Is DH a platoon between Tsutsugo and Jose Martinez?

    Knowing the Rays, I assume everything is a time share to some extent. In weekly leagues, I would avoid all the hitters except for Meadows. That's just how they roll. And let's not even talk about the "closer" situation.

    No, let's. I have a $6 N. Anderson as my last cut, and now he feels like a must keep. I need to hear more about this, although it feels like it will all be reckless speculation until late March at the earliest.
    One league, 25 years, 7 championships. AL 4X4

    Potential '20 keeps:
    Perez 10 Murphy 6 Olson 12 Cron 1 JRamirez 11 Moncada 18 LeMahieu 8 Mondesi 10 Trout 53 Soler 10 Kepler 10 Dozier 10
    German 10 Glasnow 5 Boyd 1 Carrasco 10 N. Anderson 6 LeClerc 7 Giles 8

    I'm keeping Anderson at $6 for the 10 saves and 100 K's. But trying to figure out who their closer is would be impossible because they don't use one.

    That's exactly how i approached keeping Josh Hader last year. And it payed off. Unfortunately i kept Corey Knebel too. Win some lose some.

    Totally different. This is the Rays. The don't hide that they don't do the closer thing. Doesn't mean Anderson won't be valuable.

    I suspect you're right, but in my weekly AL only league that uses OBP and SLG, Brandon Lowe and Choi still have some decent value if they get 450+ PA. And I've just recently been offered Choi 6B and a first round reserve pick (#8) for Justin Upton 12B, and Brandon Lowe 10B straight up for Keuchel 3B. Because of our unusual minors rules, I have a chance of landing a very good prospect who can help this year with the first round reserve pick.

    Choi's the one I'm most worried about in terms of healthy missed games.

    yeah, I think this is the right approach. I have Alvarado at $1 & if he's looking good in the spring I think he might make a keeper spot, but I'm under no illusions that he'll end up with more than 10 saves (ok, 15 would be great, but not likely)

    Yeah, I would be worried about Choi with all the corner/DH options they have. Lowe will get his 450-500 PA, if healthy, I would assume, unless he doesn't perform.
