General Fantasy Baseball Advice

Postby ctcf » Mon Mar 07, 2016 5:02 am

ALRIGHT so I want input making keeper decisions. I can keep three. The number next to them is the round they would be kept in in the draft.

1. Clayton Kershaw
2. Mookie Betts
3. Kris Bryant
6. David Ortiz
7. J.D. Martínez
11. Corey Kluber
12. Jon Lester
17. Lorenzo Cain

Currently leaning Kershaw, Kluber (K/9 is one of the pitching stats so that's a lot of value for an 11th rounder) and one of Ortiz, Martinez and Cain. Really trying to focus on maximizing value in terms of how much talent in which round.

Greinke is off to a terrible start. I have an offer of Marcus Stroman for Greinke on the table, would you take it?

Nope. Greinke's velocity is not doing anything all that abnormal for him, so his slightly lower K rate and higher contact rate don't strike me as anything more than early season kinks right now. Sure, the move to Arizona may be to blame, but I don't think you can know that yet. Having no true disparity in splits over his career, no past history of awful performance at Chase and having faced 4 of the Top 6 run scoring offenses in the league, making that move now would seem a tad hasty.

I'm being offered (his) Matt Harvey for my Trevor Story. Harvey looked fat and depressed on MLB Network last night. I think he might be broken but that's a hell of a lot of upside.

What kind of league? What does your pitching look like now? What is your hitting look like now? Who is available on the SS free agent market?

10 category standard league, 10 teams, I have Correa at SS and got Story off the waiver wire early in the season. I've got solid pitching with Scherzer, Greinke (who has been sucking), Archer, Hamels, Matz, Hendricks. I've been playing Story in a utility spot and he would be replaced by Kang who I got late and had stashed on the DL.

Kang can play 3B; i'd still hold off on that one unless it's easy to find UTIL dongsmiths

if you trade Story, you should expect a more sure thing...Taijuan Walker? Carrasco?

Yea I would hold off. If he is desperate for a SS maybe consider counter-offering Kang for Harvey.

You would most likely be benching Harvey anyway to see if he can correct his problems soon.
