Doug Fister


Harrell @ DeSclafani – DeSclafani has established himself as a must-start.

Big Erv @ Verlander – Erv a true toss-up, though I’d lean towards passing in a 12-team mixed league.

Carrasco @ Kennedy

Colon @ Hendricks – Tough matchup for Colon though. If you’d rather play it safe, that’s fine too.

Archer @ J. De La Rosa – Archer has given up way too many homers this year to be a recommended start at Coors.

Fister @ Mengden – Fister has pitched to a 1.31 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in three starts versus A’s this season.

M. Gonzalez @ King Felix – Maybe he will be a bit rusty, but I have confidence in Felix.

Stroman @ Corbin – Dangerous matchup for both.

Gallardo @ Pineda

B. Norris @ G. Gonzalez

Chen @ Hellickson – Favorable enough matchup for Hellickson.

Ch. Anderson @ Locke

Cain @ Pomeranz

Rea @ C. Martinez (Gm 1)

Clemens @ Garcia (Gm 2) – Garcia has been inconsistent lately but I do like the matchup.

M. Perez @ Santiago – Santiago has been on quite a roll of late but this matchup scares me (7.07 ERA in three starts versus Rangers this year).

I feel my OF is my weak link with the exception of Stanton, Maybin, Pederson would you drop L Martin, C Gomez, Mazara, Grichuk for someone like Marwin Gonzalez who I could put at CI and move K Bryant to the OF. Also Tex was dropped but don’t think he is worth a pick up since have Duda on DL. Would drop Mazara but not if he wins ROY since thats a 20 dollar category

I’d appreciate some trade advice: i have been looking for RP since roster requires 4. I have W. Davis, Jeffress, Clippard, Koji U. (Obviously last two are temporary)

I’ve been offered K. Jensen & Cargo for Blackmon & DeGrom. That’s too much in my opinion. My rotation could take it but I don’t want to pay that price.

Other options I could include are Kemp, Diaz, Tanaka (I tried, he declined), Carrasco, CMart…

His offense only real option is Cargo or Papi…
He has Melancon & Britton as well

Some guidance please?!
Thanks as always
Josh A

I actually don’t think that’s a crazy price for Jansen/Cargo. Pretty fair trade in my opinion as long as you can afford to lose Blackmon’s steals. But I’d first try to make that trade with Martinez (and then Carrasco) instead of deGrom.


Would you drop Stroman for Leake

At this point, yes.
