Maybe? Sherrill's a lock to get many saves (as many as BAL will allow, anyway), tho:
1) I imagine CC's going to straighten out (you're trading him at the worst possible time, obv), and Randy Wolf's pitching as well as he will be all year (and is only a 6-inning pitcher, and ridiculously injury-prone, and could be meat outside of Petco).
2) Hawpe's going to outproduce CQ by a wide margin, I imagine.
If saves mean that much to you, go for it. Otherwise, I'd pass.
― David R., Saturday, 19 April 2008 02:38 (thirteen years ago) link
That's one of the better offers I've gotten for CC so far. Other was him and Papi for Westbrook, Crede, and C-Pat. This being the Bora$ league, I have to think that these trades are actually not stupid, but some elaborate psy-ops overture to the soon-to-materialize knuckle-deep negotiations.

His guys are all the sort you can get off the wire all year if you look for them, whereas CC is a top 50 fantasy player who's struggling right now. You're better off hiding him on your bench and trying to cover for him with some young guy for awhile. We're not even out of April yet.

Recommendation: Hill doesn't have a multi-hit game since May 9 and is now batting .156 on the season. He was definitely due to regress this season, but this is getting ridiculous. With a 25:20 K:BB ratio, he remains a strong buy-low target.

It's H2H so 10 categories per week. I went 2-8 week one then 2-8 week two. Mathematically I should be 6th or 7th but I am just getting incredibly unlucky losing ratio cats by tenths of percents and counting stat cats by a handful, if that.

one thing i've complained about over the years in my family league is the complete lack of pitching limits - no transaction limits, no IP or GS limits - so any team with bad pitching can just stream like crazy the last few days of their matchups if they're already losing ERA/WHIP and get wins in Ws and Ks by sheer quantity. if your pitching sucks and you have no attachment to your players, you have no reason not to. if you have a decent staff full of pitchers that are too good to drop, you basically just have to lay over and lose those categories
my opponent did that to me this week - i was winning 8-2 and killing him in all pitching categories, so he streams 7 pitchers the last two days. started today winning 5-3 in Ws, he gets 3 wins to go up 6-5 before the night game, where he has both pitchers. i have craig kimbrel. if craig kimbrel gets the win, i tie instead of lose that category. craig kimbrel is currently the pitcher of record in the bottom of the tenth. if craig kimbrel doesn't win here i will quit forver

family league has apparently reached the point of insanity with people desperately trying to hold onto relevance, have recently picked up gallo, fletcher and crawford off waivers. softens the blow of losing acuna a bit. also just traded walsh/mccullers/blackmon for matt olson which hopefully won't blow up in my face like most trades i make

what you're saying is, i should be dumping my Matt Olsen stocks? (that's a lot to give up!)

it is a lot but i feel like my team is deep enough that i can start consolidating for upside... it's a shallow league and there's always solid options on waivers. i always want to pull off these 3-for-1 deals where i get the best player back but no one ever wants to bite
walsh has been dogshit for a month which sort of validates his cruddy statcast numbers (which i try not to put a lot of stock in but...), blackmon doesn't bring high enough upside for a starting role in a 4OF league, mccullers hurts but he's lost some spin without the goop and tends to get hurt a lot. i proposed trevor rogers first but he countered with mccullers
this is also a keep 3 league, not a big deal but olson might be a keeper. no way i was gonna keep any of the 3 i gave up

ah. so i sent him an anonymous email last week telling him to stop and included a screenshot of the logs just to show him there's a record of it happening. and to vaguely threaten him with the possibility of sending it to the rest of the league (which i'm not gonna do). he didn't respond, and i have no real way of knowing whether he read it or not (might've gone to spam, who knows). he hadn't cheated since then but it was mostly because he didn't have an opportunity to - lots of rainouts and he started running a short bench (which i thought might've been a strategic move after reading the email, cause he always keeps a lot of possibilities on the bench, for cheating purposes). but he cheated today, moving mark canha onto an active spot after he homered.
i don't know what to do at this point. i've been in this league for i think 13 years, i've always considered it my "main" league. i've won twice, i'm almost always in the playoffs. if i were going to call him out publicly the time do it probably would've been before his teenage son joined, i don't want to be the one to tell his son that his dad cheats against him at fantasy baseball. fantasy baseball in general doesn't seem like a big enough deal to start a whole *thing* about. maybe this is why my other family members (my cousin and his FIL) quit.

You are denying yourself an fantastic cathartic opportunity.

thought i was a genius streaming tyler wells in a doubleheader and he decided to give up 4 runs, which makes it my second 4+-run reliever appearance this week. that plus ryu/rogers/framber the past 2 days balooned my previously good ERA/WHIP to 5.83/1.45. i'm still somehow beating the other guy but i'm still getting my ass kicked. it isn't sustainable. i had 1 home run until last night.
also my cheating LM (facing the other seed this week thankfully) did his most obvious cheat yet - moved ohtani (pitcher)'s bad start to the bench and moved ohtani (hitter)'s home run to the active lineup. it's ESPN so you can't have both active at the same time. is anyone supposed to believe he benched an ohtani start in the playoffs? i know it's the astros but come on

My other league, I am neck and neck with the guy who’s been in first for half the season. Overtook him for one full day a couple days ago before dropping a few points. All my guys are healthy - and I’m about to get Giolitto back. I like my odds. I am hopefully overtaking him in sb and holds today.

annoying thing is my cheating LM instituted a rule years ago limiting teams to 5 adds per week in the playoffs, in response to me winning the league 2 years in a row in part because there was no rule or limit against streaming a crazy amount of starting pitchers at any time, which is how the league always functioned because he personally likes to stream pitchers without limits. i had already made a post in the league requesting a limit because i didn't like how every year turned into a stupid race to see who could stream the most pitchers, which he completely ignored. he only added the limit after i won the league streaming like crazy out of spite. he then had the audacity to tell my father that he had to institute a limit to prevent me from abusing the system again, and that i'm probably really angry about it. when i'm the one who was pushing for the limit in the first place.
anyway he instituted it in the dumbest way possible, by making a straight up add/drop limit instead of a GS/IP limit, or just limiting pitcher streams. it basically freezes all position player add/drops in the playoffs because everyone needs to use their precious 5 changes on pitchers. i would like to be able to drop the ice cold josh donaldson for any number of super hot hitters on waivers right now but i gotta save that so i can stream cole irvin on friday. i hate this league.
