Trevor Bauer - Why is his K% so high, why is his SwStr so low, why is he still getting shelled, and is he interesting at all?

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

I'm pretty high on Rodriguez, but Berrios is going to have more favorable match-ups.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

No idea what to do here, which usually means it's probably a pretty fair offer.
Guy offered me Trout for Votto, Bum, Bellinger.
Trout is over $75 so basically a non-keeper.
Votto is only $30 and Bellinger is $3. Bum is also a non-keeper at over 40, and while an injury question mark at this point, should be a huge asset down the stretch run.

I countered by offering Votto and only one of Belli/Bum plus another piece like Manaea/Morton/ERod/Shoemaker/prospect/similar

What would you guys do?

Really depends on the rest of your roster construction and your other keeper options for next season.

For example if you're already pretty loaded on offense with solid keepers getting trout back for votto/bel is an upgrade in my opinion. Additionally if you don't have good keeper options I'd hold bel and votto (votto is silently crushing this season and $30 is a modest price).

Overall though I feel like you're giving up more value though and wound try to leave bum out of the deal

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

With that team I don't feel like trout is super necessary. Miggy slides to first then who are you putting in his spot? And I assume you can't start all those OF? Not a huge need for trout imo.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

We start 4 OF and 1 UT.
Morales can play CI or OF.

I told him I cant give up all three of Votto/Bellinger/Bum

Typing all that out makes me want to hang on to Votto and Bellinger

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

With only 4 OF slots I'm probably keeping them. Miggy is very concerning this season and the downgrade from votto to morales with the upgrade from trout to whoever isn't worth the keeper value you're giving up

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

What do we think of Bogaerts? Specifically in a league that counts OBP (nice!) and SLG (ouch)?
Is he a solid buy-low, or did he just totally abandon any semblance of power?

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Re: Trout trade, I think he'd have the slight edge in value in a redraft league. With Bellinger as a keeper, it's lopsided imo.

He's really swinging for contact not power. I would buy if he's really cheap, but in reality I think he's a buy low candidate the next 1-2 years in the hopes that he figures out in the offseason that pulling the ball and swinging hard at the expense of an increased k-rate is fine (within reason obv)

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

That's a pretty big lowball, you're getting the best two players in the deal by far

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Ok I wasn't sure how it'd be viewed. In my mind I'm giving up 4 good players for 1 elite and 1 great (+2 unrosterable), so I should be getting the best 2, but I can see why it wouldn't be viewed that way
