Hughes @ Stroman – OK I’m warming up to Stroman now
Bauer @ Ventura
R. De La Rosa @ W. Chen

@ Cumpton

@ deGrom – hard to argue with deGrom’s results so far
Teheran @ Matzek
Roark @ Cain


Can I drop Kuroda for Roark in 12 teams league? I need W’s & K’s

I wouldn’t. Kuroda’s been a lot better over his last two starts. I’ll stick with him and his track record over the unproven Roark.


What kind of impact do you think Votto will have now that he’s returned? Should I look to move him?

Trading Votto now, while his stock is still quite low, doesn’t make much sense to me. Personally, I’m still a believer in him (and he’s been productive since returning), but if you want to deal him, wait until he earns back some value.


What do you think of this trade, I am in a 9 team NL only league. I am in need of SB’s and AVG
Get: Collmenter and Stubbs
Give:Mesoraco and Henderson Alvarez

Honestly, I’m not a big fan of this deal as Mesoraco is well above middle of the pack in terms of NL catchers and Stubbs, a career .244 hitter, isn’t going to maintain a .300-plus AVG. Now playing every day though, he will contribute in the SB department. Being that Alvarez to Collmenter is a downgrade, I’d lean towards passing, but if you’re truly desperate for SBs it makes some sense. I think you can do better though.


What if I give up Seth Smith instead?

I like it a bit more but my confidence in Stubbs isn’t all that high. And he hasn’t even stolen a base in awhile. I’d be inclined to look for alternative SB options.

another Votto ? I was thinking of trying to trade him for Kimbrel as I have shaky closers in Rosenthal and Nathan…..giving to much/little or even trade? Also what are your thoughts on a trade in my league where 1 owner got Werth for G Richards

Both are totally fair deals, depending on your needs.
