If you don't snappitty snap snap snapoff Goldy the second that trade is sent I dont know what to tell you.

I literally opened this thread to post about how amazing Judge is and what a monster he appears to have become, but cmon man, if you can turn a last round pick/waiver pickup into a perrenial 1st rounder, you do it no questions asked.


edit - that said, Judge is ridiculous! Holy bombs batman!

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Should I be grabbing Carlos Gomez? Thinking about cutting bait on Motter or Moreland.

This is the league I've posted about where crazy trades center on keeper eligibility

Last year keeper-eligible Giolito and stuff got non-k Kris Bryant and stuff.

I picked up Judge in 2015 and kept him through 2 drafts, and he can be kept basically for free forever.

While Goldschmidt is great, I'd only get him for this year.

I am in 2nd right now though, if there were ever a go-for-it year, it'd be this year, and banners fly forever.

The guy who offered Goldschmidt doesn't even have him yet, he's a serial trade-aholic who wants to know up front if he can flip him to me.

even if its just now, you take goldy, hands down. theres no way to sell higher on judge right now, he's gonna go through a 2/20 drought at some point this summer

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

I think Carlos Gomez of old is mostly back now. His contact % is back up to his good numbers, power seems to be there. K% is down, BB% is slightly up above his career numbers. 20/20 seems within reach with a 0.270-0.280 AVG, and even an OBP as high as 0.330 if he continues to draw walks at this pace. He's locked in to the 3 spot of the lineup right now, which should results in a good balance of counting stats.

Depends on whether he's out of it this year. If he's not going to compete, tell him to throw in a closer or something else you need. You have the leverage.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Gonna have to make some tough choices coming up here when Tulo and Donaldson come back from DL. I would also like some flexibility in my pitching staff. Who is most droppable. H2H 2p2 league(keep 6) w/ OBP instead of AVG. Offense and pitching are both solid overall. Looking to drop 3.

Hitters
C. Hernandez
T. Shaw
C. Owings
J. Bell

Pitchers
Liriano
Glasnow (would rather hold him until he gets sent down)
Cotton

Leaning Cotton and Owings, then either Shaw or Hernandez. I would like to have a serviceable backup for Tulo though

Syndergaard yanked after 38 pitches. 1.1ip 5h 2bb 5er. Not sure who is dumber in this situation. Thor for refusing the MRI or the Mets for letting him pitch without getting an MRI.

Have I mentioned that you shouldn't take pitchers early?
