Logan Verrett

ZACH’S PICKS

Peralta @ Big Erv

Miley @ Carrasco

Verrett @ Velasquez – Verrett worth a shot here versus Phillies team that ranks last in the NL in runs and batting average.

Surkamp @ Pineda – Pineda bounced back nicely his last time out.

Stroman @ M. Wright

J. De La Rosa @ Stephenson

Wood @ W. Perez

Smyly @ Kelly

Strasburg @ Conley – Tough matchup for Conley but I’ll go for it.

Greene @ Ventura

Feldman @ Holland – Holland has been solid so far but I don’t like this matchup.

Shoemaker @ Latos – Shoemaker too inconsistent to trust. I might regret benching Latos but he still worries me, despite strong start.

Hammel @ Garcia

Liriano @ Rea

Ray @ Cain – Not giving up on Cain but it’s hard to pitch him with confidence coming off Coors Field collapse.

Z –

Any expected timeframe on the 1st official PoD list this season to also account for all the DL SP’s?

-BDH

Figure the end of the month. I like to wait until the rotations become clearer.

I have an offer of Francisco Rodriguez for Jared Eickhoff.

I have some closer depth so was thinking about it for the potential upside.

I have Fernando Rodney, Vizcaino, Ziegler and Perkins.

My Starters are: Liriano, Servino, Shields, Nola, Velazquez, Conley

I have darvish, berrios and glasnow stashed. It’s a auction keeper league.

Am I reacting to early results and not getting enough for a closer.

Hang onto K-Rod. I think your closer situation is much more uncertain than your starting rotation. I like Eickhoff but you don’t need him as much as you need K-Rod.

Hey Zach –
Wilson Ramos or Yan Gomes for ROS? I know it’s early but I was counting on Gomes to have a nice bounce back season. Ramos is still available in one of my leagues.
Thanks for your help.
Rich D.

I slightly prefer Ramos. Then again, if you drafted Gomes, it means you believe in him. If that is the case, I think you should just stick with your guy.

Zach

upton and mazara for joey bats? is mazara sticking ? worth doing for j. bats? ???

I’d rather have the two bats than Joey Bats.

Zach –

With Jarrod Dyson coming off the DL, I have to drop either Rajai Davis or Tyler Naquin. Which player do you see getting more playing time? I know they offer different scoring metrics, but I am inclined to keep Davis. Thoughts?
Thanks.

Rich D.

Agreed. Even after Brantley comes back, I think Davis will get enough playing time to remain an asset. Naquin is more of an unknown, both from a performance level and expected playing time standpoint.

Zach

Yadier Molina or Yasmani Grandal? Something tells me Grandal is going to have a big year.

At this stage of Molina’s career, I’d rather go with the upside of Grandal.
