Miguel Gonzalez


Stults @ G. Gonzalez – Gio outstanding in his last start. Hopefully, you bought low while you had the chance.

M. Gonzalez @ Warren – Miguel off to a nice start, and he dominated the Yankees last month.

Harvey @ Hamels – Enjoy!

Wacha @ Liriano

Miley @ Ar. Sanchez

Ventura @ Price – Ventura struggling lately, so wouldn’t blame you for ditching him in shallower leagues for this tough matchup.

Pelfrey @ Bauer – Sticking with Bauer.

Gallardo @ Karns – Both pitchers are a bit risky but Rangers and Rays both rank in the bottom third of the AL in runs scored and batting average.

Hammel @ Nelson

Marquis @ Noesi

B. Anderson @ Butler – I like Anderson, but not here.

Shields @ Hellickson

R. Hernandez @ Weaver – Weaver cannot be trusted right now.

Gray @ Walker – Walker continues to tease us.

Cosart @ Lincecum – Taking a chance on both.

Hey 411,

6×6 roto auction keeper with obp and qs. We keep 4 at listed price

My roster:
M Cabrera
Kendrick/ Rendon $1
C Davis
Springer – $1
Marisnick -$1
UTIL: Tex,Reddick
BENCH :Buxton $1, Pence $6

Kluber – $1
Cueto $5
Odorizzi- $2
Smyly -$5

I’ve been offered $36 Carlos Gomez for my $5 Cueto or $1 Kluber..should I accept?

If I completed this deal I would probably keep Springer, Rendon, Cueto/Kluber and Buxton next year.

As always,

That’s a tough one but I think I’d pass. Gomez is off to an underwhelming start to the season and he’s been banged up, so how confident can we really be that he’ll put up first round type numbers from here on out? And you probably wouldn’t keep him anyway at that price. There’s just too much value in those SP keepers.


Is it me, or does offense in general seem to be wayyy up this year (thus far)? I think we started to see some regression kick in over the last week or so with some starters, but I’d still bet that offense is owning it in MLB this year.

Well, last year’s average runs per game for a team was 4.07, the lowest since 1981. So far this year, we’re at 4.24, higher but nowhere near what it was in what we now refer to as The Steroid Era. (5.14 R/G in 2000).
