I made a trade today and im curious what you think of it.
I traded away Greinke, Cueto and my 4th round pick next year and i recieved McCutchen ,perkins and a 3rd round pick next year.

I am leading in almost every offensive category already but Kemp is in my OF and has been horrible. (k’s is a category for us so its even worse). I also am 3rd to last in saves despite having jansen, kimbrel and holland. the trade leaves me with J.Fernandez,Shields,Carrasco,A.Sanchez as my pitchers with an open slot to pick up a guy off the waivers or play pitch or ditch the rest of the season. Did i make a mistake giving up Greinke and Cueto? This is a keeper league.

Also What 5 would you keep next year if the season was over now?
Miggy,Trout,Posey,McCutchen,Arenado or Tulo? ( 7×7 with k’s and TB being the extra categories in our league)

I’m a fan of Perkins but I think you bought high on him here. You might have been able to get this deal done without giving up two aces. Maybe something like Cueto + Shields. But on a more general note, you already had three solid closers, so I don’t think you had a huge need for Perkins anyway. There’s a lot of luck involved when it comes to save chances and both Jansen and Holland missed time, which explains the lower saves total. Not a terrible trade, but I think you overpaid a bit.

As for the keepers, I’d lean towards leaving Tulo out.


trumbo was dropped in my league…..would you drop Holt or L martin or Polanco or Taylor( WA) for him or stay put

This totally depends on context.

is Khris davis worth a pick up…..my OF is Springer(DL) Polanco/ L Martin/ Peralta/ M Taylor/ Maybin and Heyward and myers(DL)

Yeah, at this point I wouldn’t have a problem dropping Martin for Davis. Normally I’d say Taylor but he could get a good amount of playing time, at least in the short term, with Span sidelined.


Hi Zach,

Would you Pick Beachy in any of my 3 leagues and drop:

League 1:
Fister or Quintan or ,Iwakuma
League 2:
Brett Anderson or McHugh or Salazar
League 3:
Gallardo or Cody Anderson or Chase Anderson or Ventura or T. Walker?

League 1: No
League 2: No
League 3: Yes, for Chase Anderson
