Even though I have Glaus @ 3rd (if he doesn't get hurt, he's still only going to sit out 1 game @ series) and the league also requires me to start an additional corner infielder (who is at present Mark Reynolds), and coupled with Hill's shaky control this spring...?

hmm i actually like mark reynolds but i guess it prob depends on what your other SPing is like. i still think hill will have a good season if he stays healthy. also ive just never been a laroche fan

eah.

The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall, Saturday, 19 April 2008 01:05 (ten years ago) Permalink

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 (ten years ago) Permalink

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.

one month passes...

so in my other glorping league - we have a team that missed the (auction) draft and has been pouting about it all season (the auto draft left him with an abomination of a team). he was doing some weird waiver wire shit - dropping a few of his respectable players and literally benched his entire team. weird, but whatever. the commish, who is a smart, talented, decent guy knew about all this as well. no biggie. but then over the weekend this trash team trades literally his only two ok/good players to the commish – for two nobodies. trade was voted down a day later; but i was kinda of appalled at what poor judgment he exercised. he took over the commish job from me a few years ago, so i don't want to rag on him... the other team should really be locked imho. maybe he got the hint when his trade was smacked down and that will be enough... maybe i should fire him a message? leaning towards keeping quiet.

is there a public place to berate and embarrass the offender? a chat room or fb group or something? i'd say that's a good start, and get the rest of your league on it... is there an incentive to tanking this obviously?

no - not a keeper league, or a cash league or anything. he's just being a suck. that i don't care about so much as our commissioner deciding making a blatantly one sided-trade with that team. i have no idea what he was thinking.

yeah ef both of those guys, hopefully everyone vetoes the trade. next year I'd hesitate to join the league and if asked why, just mention these incidents and that you'd be wary of such sketchy COLLUSION.

Trade is already dead. The commish tho is a pretty great guy normally. I’m really baffled.

you can forgive yourself for benching him tho, he hasn't been exactly setting the world on fire in 2018. still hurts

in another roto league i just moved into joint 1st place today, after taking first for the first time only 3 days before the end of the season. same guy was on top all year until i ruined it! Had my WHIP been 0.0038 lower, I would have won outright. Perhaps more shockingly, had my WHIP been 0.00026 (!!!) higher, I wouldn't have finished in first.

I won my friends league. $$$ back-to-back champs. :)

If Twitter ever released my search results for this year it would just say "mariners lineup" over and over again.
