I might get this deal done in an NL only 5×5 keeper league. Looking to win this year. What are your thoughts?
Give: Goldschmidt
Get: Rollins, Billy Hamilton and either Roark or Lance Lynn
I am looking for SB and top tier hitters. Have Cabrera and Cutch on the DL so I have two open slots.

never mind, not happening^.

Hey Zach

I am 12 points out to push for 2nd or 3rd place. 1st seems a little out of reach at the moment. I am in a Keeper League where you can take 4 players.

I’ve built up my player pool for next year and have

Carlos Gomez
Freddie Freeman
Robinson Cano
Gregory Polanco
Oscar Taveras
Victor Martinez
Cole Hamels

I was thinking of trying to trade Cano, Hahn & Pederson to pick up Price, Kazmir and Cishek. I have a very strong offense this year and the most amount of points to gain with pitching. What do you think I should do?

My pitching right now is Hamels, Gio Gonzalez, Bailey, Hahn, Duffy Pineda, Cobb, Odorizzi & A. Wood.

Cheers

If you think that this trade makes sense for you this year based on the standings breakdown, I have no problem with it. Always play to win now if you’re in contention. The opportunity won’t be there every year.

HEY ZACH,
BRANDON PHILLIPS WAS DROPPED IN MY LEAGUE A FEW WEEKS AGE, HE COULD BEGIN A REHAB ASSIGNMENT AS SOON AS FRIDAY, I HAVE DUSTIN PEDROIA AS MY REGULAR 2B AND JONATHAN LUCROY AT IF POSITION, I ALSO HAVE J. GYORKO, CHASE HEADLEY AND CASEY MCGEHEE ON MY BENCH. SHOULD I DROP ANY OF THEM FOR PHILLIPS AND IF YES WHO DO I DROP? ALSO, DO YOU THINK I SHOULD GET SOME HELP ON PITCHING ? ITS A 14 TEAM, H2H LEAGE. THIS IS HOW MY TEAM LOOKS NOW;
D. Mesoraco Cin – C
V. Martínez Det – 1B
D. Pedroia Bos – 2B
E. Longoria TB – 3B
S. Castro ChC – SS
J. Lucroy Mil – C,1B
M. Trout LAA – OF
M. Holliday StL – OF
C. Beltrán NYY – OF
B. Gardner NYY – OF
A. Jackson Sea – OF
C. McGehee Mia – 1B,3B
J. Gyorko SD – 2B,3B
C. Headley NYY – 3B
M. Bourn Cle – OF DL

J. Lackey StL – SP
J. Zimmermann Was – SP
I. Kennedy SD – SP
J. Masterson StL – SP
F. Rodríguez Mil – RP
H. Street LAA – RP
J. Benoit SD – RP
D. Betances NYY – RP
V. Worley Pit – SP
M. Lindstrom CWS – RP
B. McCarthy NYY – SP
M. Tanaka NYY – SP
TNAKS!!!

I don’t have a problem with you dropping Headley for Phillips. There’s little downside with that move. And yes, I do think you can use at least one more dependable SP, as McCarthy is pitching over his head and we really don’t know what to expect from Masterson on a start to start basis.

Zach

thank you, I was thinking about dropping Headley, but was not sure. On the other hand, which SP do you think will be a good addition to my SPs? as of now the FA consist of Mike FIers, Kyle Hendricks, Anibal Sanchez (DL), Bud Norris, Roenis Elias, Andrew Cashner (DL), Drew Smyly, Tommy Milone. Jeremy Hellickson, Josh Collmenter, Nathan Eovaldi and Rubby De La Rosa, Jaeke Peavy, Marco Estrada & Wade Miley.

I’d definitely pick up Anibal to stash on the DL. As for the other SP’s, playing the matchups is the best way to go, but if I had to pick one who I’d feel the most comfortable with from now through the end of the season, it would be Smyly.

Zach

whats your take on Rymer Liariano? Is he worth a flier in a 12 team head to head league….could drop Eaton/ Taveras for him……also Marisnick is available……….also who would you prefer Duffy, McHugh or Ordozzi…….currently have Duffy and McHugh on my roster..thinking of dropping Cole when he returns

In mixed leagues, I’d take a wait and see approach with Liriano and lean towards standing pat with your current outfielders. As for the starting pitching, I think I’d drop McHugh for Odorizzi.
