    Would this core be workable going into the winter?

    SP Gerrit Cole NYY - SP
    SP Dylan Cease CWS - SP
    SP Patrick Sandoval LAA - SP
    SP Aaron Ashby Mil - SP,RP
    SP Drew Rasmussen TB - SP,RP

    I have a couple of lottery tickets

    BN DL Hall Bal - SP
    BN Dustin May LAD - SP

    Cease has four more years, which makes him one of the most valuable SP in the league.
    Sandoval, Rasmussen, and May have expensive options. It's unclear whether they will be worth the cost.
    In contrast, Ashby and Hall are quite cheap
    So back to your original post. Sandoval, Rasmussen and may are likely not keepers at high salary...if you don't need them trade them. Hall is a very long shot to be a keeper if he is not on a Minor league status. We have talked Ashby enough.....cole is a keeper at most prices...but could also bring a ton of talent. You never mentioned if you are competing or selling

    The fact that you are trying to compete this year is another good piece of info that would have been helpful to include in your original post. Anyway, good luck with your team

    Why do you only have 2 pitchers and the rest are benched? (and at that only 4 on the bench?)

    Graduation losses. Wheeler, Woodruff, and Lynn will not be back.

    On the other side, I omitted RP for clarity. I have the possibility of Liam Hendricks returning and Felix Bautista is looking a whole lot more interesting than when I started the thread.

    It's the final few days--Aug 11 deadline.

    Restating what was said earlier. This is a contending team that is losing three SP. These are the keeper options.

    P Gerrit Cole NYY - SP
    SP Dylan Cease CWS - SP
    SP Patrick Sandoval LAA - SP
    SP Aaron Ashby Mil - SP,RP
    SP Drew Rasmussen TB - SP,RP

    I have a couple of lottery tickets

    BN DL Hall Bal - SP
    BN Dustin May LAD - SP

    • Cease has four more years, which makes him one of the most valuable SP in the league.
    • Sandoval, Rasmussen, and May have expensive options. It's unclear whether they will be worth the cost.
    • In contrast, Ashby and Hall are quite cheap.
    • The Bullpen will be built around Liam Hendrix and possibly Felix Bautista, but I am focusing on SP while I can stil make trades.


    Are there any other comments?
