Because I wanted Beltran, a solid infield option (which Youk is when he's not freezing cold like right now), and Kimbrel was a bonus. Any reason why trading McCutchen was the end of the world for me? This is my team, btw.

Can't see it.

Was trading McCutchen really that bad?

You could have looked for a better offer.

It was the offer I was looking for, though.

Youk sucks, and this is coming from a Red Sox fan. He's inconsistent and he's always injured.

In comparison to where he was drafted in fantasy this season, yes he does.

He's never played in more than 147 games and the past three years he's played in 136, 102, and 120.

He wasn't drafted that highly this year, though. He was barely a top 10 3B.

His overall rank was 61 on Yahoo!, I just don't think there's any way he finishes inside the top 100 in cumulative value and he may not even in per game value.

So because some people overrate him he sucks? Ok then.

I'd drop him for Samardzija


This is the move I ended up making.

Juan Nicosio is still out there in my league and if he has another nice start this weekend I might pick him up. Would you pick him up, and if so, who would you drop out of...

Samardzija (if he has a nice start for me though it might be hard to drop him)
Neil Walker (I have Cano, Rickie Weeks, and Allen Craig on my DL who has 2B eligibility...I just hate to put such a solid 2B out there on the market for someone to pick up)
Alexei Ramirez (I'm starting Aybar, Ian Desmond is still on the FA market in case someone picks up Alexei)
Mark Trumbo (seems like the most logical choice, but I have Mouse at 3B and it'll be nice to have Trumbo once he picks up 3B eligibility)

I would rather have all of those guys than Nicasio.

You think so? I liked what he showed last year and his minor league numbers were pretty decent.

I'm also keeping a close eye on Trevor Bauer. if Collmenter has another shitty start or two I might pull the trigger early and hope they call him up soon.

His per game rank last year was 95 and it was 70 the year before. He hasn't been worthy of that high of a draft spot in a long time, ESPECIALLY after you factor in the 20+ games he's almost guaranteed to miss.

I hope you know I'm talking about strictly fantasy value and not real life.

I'm just not that high on Nicasio. Needs more strikeouts. I'd rather wait for Bauer.
