pick up stroman or Ventura

Who do you like better in a 10 team mixed H2H points league, Beltran or a waiver wire guy?

Chisenhall has hit .194 since June 13th and I really need pitching. I haven’t been able to trade him for anyone. Is it crazy to drop him in a 12 team mixed (roto) league to play pitch and ditch until my innings catch up (I’m 70 under the limit and down in Ks). Thanks.

Not crazy, though I’d try to drop someone else. If that’s not possible, I think I’d ultimately make that move. Looks like Chisenhall might be turning back into a pumpkin.

I was offered this trade in an NL only 5×5 roto league.
Get:Shelby miller(9 dollars) and gerrit cole(7 dollars) both are keepers for next year
Give:Huston street(14 dollars) and Henderson alvarez(1 dollar) neither are keepers.
What are your thoughts about this trade? I’m thinking of accepting, but I may ask for more back. Thanks

See my answer to Robby, who I’m assuming is the same person as you? If that’s not the case, it’s kinda scary.

over the past 2 days, John Danks and Josh Burnett were dropped. if others with higher priority don’t claim them off waivers, is it wise to drop Jarred Cosart for either one of those pitchers?

Is Josh Burnett like a hybrid pitcher? I’m assuming it’s Josh Beckett and not A.J. Burnett but since Beckett is on the DL right now, what I’d do is pick up both Beckett and Danks, dropping Cosart, and then stash Beckett on your DL. If it’s Burnett, I’d choose him over Danks.

Was offered in an NL only roto league (keeper)
Give:Henderson Alvarez(1 dollar) and Huston Street(14 dollars)
Get: Shelby Miller (9 dollars) and Gerrit Cole (7 dollars)
I would probably keep Miller and Cole and not keep Street or Alvarez. What are your thoughts.

I am ahead by 16 in saves in front of the next team, I also have Kimbrel.

A totally fair value trade considering it’s a keeper league but as long as you’re in contention, I’d hold off on it for now until we get a better read on Cole’s health status.

Zach

If I can add getting Beckett in that deal too, what are your thoughts? I’d accept the deal with just Cole and Miller, so it couldn’t hurt to try.

If you’re playing to win this year, I’d still be hesitant to make that trade.
