Because of the way the Cubs employ Rizzo in the field in obvious bunt situations, he now has two official games as a  2Bman. Three more and he gets 2B in yahoo. 

Way to tim up the thread

If you have pitchers on your roster that you're afraid to start against the Padres, you might as well drop them.

If you guys don't veto trades, yes run and do it.

That is real lopsided.

Why are you rostering guygs like Pennington and Plouffe?

I've been holding Berkman and Konerko since the start, but someone dropped Marte and I'm SB challenged to say the least. One of these turds need to go. Which over the hill 1B eligible should I dump for Marte?

ETA: Segura was dropped as well. Better option than Marte?

That's funny. You're funny. 10 team with really short benches. H2H and bench spots are filled with SP's because we don't have a per week innings limit. It makes sense to roll with only the minimum hitters so there are a lot of good options on the wire for hitting, not so much for pitching.

Wow, Id find a way to add both Segura and Marte

Would love to but only rolling with the minimum offense so I don't fall behind in pitching. My SS is Castro. My OF is J Upton LF, Fowler CF, and Choo RF.

We only start 3 OF's, must be LF/CF/RF eligible. And one Utility.

Fangraphs is pretty enthusiastic about Fausto Hernandez Carmona and his shiny new change-up. Grabbing in desperation over Hammel and Parker, who were just dropped.

Now, let's just hope he doesn't get mentioned in the thread which must not be named.

Fangraphs NL pitching tiers, for those looking to rate guys for possible add/droppitude.

You can call me AL

Everyone is on the sell high bandwagon for Matt Moore. He's been a joy to own but I wonder about maybe an offer to another owner with a higher ranked SP that hasn't been performing......Hamels is a good one.

Good luck. When the change up isn't located the BB's and HR's come in waves. He had 10 BB's in 24 IP's before going gopher against Chicago. I saw the fangraphs article too and while he may be better than he was 2008-2011 it's a tough sell that he's even close to 2007 form again. If he maintains that K rate 4 something/1.3 will be easier to stomach though, and there are K's to be found in his next 3 matchups - KC, Toronto, and San Diego.

Yeah, like I said, it's a desperation move that I'll try out for some soft match-ups.Ran the projections on my staff and it's quickly getting to the point where it won't matter much.ERA's currently at 4.85. Fangraphs projections put me at 4.05 by end of the season with the current staff. A trade for a solid to great, but injured type (Cueto or Grienke) would put it to a projected 3.99.Both are likely last place, with a shot at 2nd or 3rd to last.Not much leverage on even making those types of deals. Even with speed to burn and saves to add in, the rest of the league is so unbelievably bad in steals that they all have hope of a top 3 finish by doing nothing. I've got 50 SBs. 3rd to last place ranges from 27 to 20.I might be able to sell somebody on the value of breaking loose from that stalemate, but we'll see.

Middle reliever's are your friend, use them to get back in the hunt with ratios. I often times have an era around 4 in May, but chip away at it throughout the last 4+ months. Obviously you're playing from a bit behind, but you can still get to middle of the pack at least, I'm sure.

Well it's a good question. Segura is currently the #2 MIFer in both avg and OBP leagues and for perspective, the #10 SS is Marwin Gonzalez.

With short benches and needing to use those bench spots on pitching, adding an uproven guy like Segura while dropping someone more established can come back to bite you.

Agree. Adapting your strategies and player valuations for unique league rules is important.

I don't think Segura's AVG and power are sustainable but his speed should be. Even if his AVG regresses to something with a normal BABIP, he'll still be a top ten fantasy SS. The Brewers got a very nice return for two months of rent-a-Greinke.

I disagree. The only questions I had were preferences on players. If you think my league is stupid that is fine and all, but it doesn't help me to just tell me how stupid it is. I came here for opinions on players.

So you're saying you believe Segura is legit enough to stay a top 10 SS for the year.

If that is the case, should I maybe consider moving Castro for another piece on my roster?

Not a bad idea, but I suspect you won't be excited about the return.

So far, this has been a great year to avoid Top SS's outside of Tulo. Most people that went cheap at SS are probably happy they did.

So, the guys currently rolling with the Alcides/EverCab/Lowrie types probably aren't looking to give up anything meaningful for an upgrade and anybody really desperate at SS would've picked up Segura by now.

Nothing wrong with trading Castro, but I wouldn't think you could get much for him.

Depends on who I'm dealing with. I need to find the right guy who perceives Castro's value higher than maybe it is. I already sent one, aiming real high, offering Castro/Choo for McCutchen. The other guy is rolling with Rollins, and is also in the bottom quarter in the rankings right now.

I didn't jab him, but I expected others to. I realized when he posted a question a couple of weeks ago that he plays in way too shallow of a league for me to offer any advice when he does ask questions. Don't know how to manage those types of leagues. Also realize there will be the typical 6 team league comment. This is the internet.

The league is shallow with a wacky setup, but it is challenging because of the short benches. Yes there are great options on the wire most often, but if you drop a guy for the hot bat it can cost you since we're running a marathon and not a sprint here. You may see a lot more hitters on our wire than in a larger league, but it doesn't mean the league isn't still competitive.

In a shallow league like that, Id have no problem dropping Lance & Konerko for Segura and Marte. If it doesnt work out just pick them back up ;)

Berkman is already gone for Segura. Konerko can still hit a HR and I need a 1B so he stays. I'm okay without Marte for now I think. Don't really have anyone else to give up for Marte, unless I give up a pitcher and that isn't happening.

Perceived value based on names, track records, and potential.

ESPN doesn't hurt either since I think they have Castro as the #2 overall SS now that Reyes is hurt.

MAC 32 seems to relish being butthurt.

The old subtitle included the phrase "mock others," that's what we do. ;)

Nah, just thin skinned when it comes to foolishness. If you're going to mock at least be funny. 6 team league was kiiinda funny 6 years ago.

I remember the good old days when Timachochet only posted in the LA Angles thread.

Middle reliever's are your friend, use them to get back in the hunt with ratios. I often times have an era around 4 in May, but chip away at it throughout the last 4+ months. Obviously you're playing from a bit behind, but you can still get to middle of the pack at least, I'm sure.

What if you've got 5 closers rostered?

But otherwise I agree. Scavenger wins are also nice.
