Organized Chaos gives 7 dollars to Capital City Income for Cal Quantil and CCI moves up a round in the draft.
You are buying Dwight Smith at his highest level of performance ever. He has never hit this well in the minors over the course of a full season most of his minor league seasons looked like .265/.340./.430 while never being young for his level. He’s a corner outfielder. He was placed on waivers by the Jays who really don’t have any decent OF’s on their current roster and very little prospect depth yet the Bluejays preferred others. He is now 26 so he may be just a late bloomer and coming into his own. He also is on a team where he should get a full season of at bats even if he slumps. If he keeps up his .861 OPS pace this deal looks pretty damn good, if its just a good April and he turns into Dwight Smith Jr of previous seasons I would much rather have a 1st rounder and 10 dollars. He has always hit for a decent average so he may be someone who gets a little more boost out of the juiced ball.
2. I follow prospects fairly closely and I hadn’t even heard of this dude until about 3 weeks ago. Had Organized Chaos? He looks like he is on fire, and he is putting up numbers in the IL its no PCL mirage. MLB pipeline had him outside the top 30 prospects as of Feb 2019. I don’t like it at all for OC, guy has hit for a month with no track record. My wife likes to spend her money on a bunch of little 20-50 dollar items(thanks Amazon prime) where as I would rather not, but when I want a 7000 hot tub I will go ahead and order it.
3. Ok I actually don’t mind this purchase. Very rarely does the wife order a little lingerie, I don’t complain. Quantrill was sexy at one point and then unsexy and he looks like he may be a little bit sexy again. His stuff seemed to take a step back but I have seen reports that his velocity has returned and his secondaries are looking good. Unlike position players Quantrill can be pretty average and still be worth 7 dollars in auction net year, and I think there may be more upside. Just go look at the starters on the waiver wire, if you believe Quantrill can stick in a rotation its a good buy. Definitely not a guarantee but I like it for OC.
Organized Chaos trades away Elías, Roenis Gutierrez, Vladimir
Capital City Ironmen trades away James, Josh
Hustle’s Toxic $.02
$10 for Josh James?
Pretty simple. The trade really comes down to what role you think Josh James has. If James becomes a starter, this is a fine “buy low” for Chaos. If he stays a reliever (and currently he’s an awful one), then this is a bad trade for Chaos. Do you feel lucky? The Astros rotation looks pretty stacked with Forrest Whitley in the wings. Joe Musgrove comes to mind of a starter then reliever who became a good starter for another team, maybe thats James fate. First and foremost, he’s going to need to pitch better, because at the current rate he’s headed back to AAA shortly. In all honesty if he went back to AAA, that would be good for Chaos here, because he could send him down and use his active spots on good players and potential major league keepers.
As someone who held guys like Gsellsman and Peacock last year, I know the burden of having relievers on your team when you don’t want that player to be a reliever. At least those guys did well in relief when I owned them.
Bailey clearly FIGURED IT OUT, and traded away James for a nice $10 amount that will come in handy next auction. If James was a starter and in auction at the beginning of the season, he would have went for over $30 pretty easily, so this is certainly a buy low. Will it pay off? :shrug:
Andrew’s thoughts: I like this one for Marshall Law. Zack Godley has been pretty awful this year, but was projected to be a top-60 starting pitcher coming into the year. He’s been very good for stretches in the past. He’ll start at $12 to keep, so there’s potential future value here too. And the cost was… basically nothing. Pretty good risk/reward deal. If you’re clinging to 4th rounders when offered Godleys, regardless of where you are on the contention cycle, you’re probably doing it wrong.
Kudos to Marshall for joining the league, surveying the landscape, and quickly positioning his team to compete. Just goes to show what can be accomplished when one puts their mind to it.
For Hustle, this is whatever. Godley had been squeezed off his roster and sometimes when you’re a top team and have too many good players, you just have to take what you can get. A 4th rounder beats cutting a guy for nothing.
Hampson has been advertised and on the block for a while and finally found a home. It’s a good way to do business, make sure everyone knows a player is available so you don’t second guess what you received. No need to rush.
Who is Garrett Hampson
last years triple slash lines in AA(eastern league) and AAA (PCL) respectively. To my untrained eye he looks like he should be a high obp guy with a better than average hit tool and probably speed over power. He is off to a slow start but I think he could be a quality starting guy in this league. Hampson’s slow start may have cost him an opportunity to take the 2B job as Ryan McMahon is back from the IL and Hampson has not played the last 4 games. But if you are making this trade you believe in Hampson and you have a roster where you can hopefully sit and wait for him to get traded into a starting spot or an injury opens up an opportunity. With Rodgers also getting close, Hampson may have a tough fit in Colorado.
I like this trade for Organized Chaos as he gets an mlb ready player that may just require a little patience. As for TBD he has always liked his draft picks, and if he doesn’t get an extra pick here he is spending 5-10 dollars to pick one up at draft time.
This trade is ok if your hoping for Pomeranz to regain his 30 PPG in seasons 2016/2017. Last year he started 26 games and averaged a measly 9 PPG. This year hasn’t been much better with only one good start and is averaging 18 ppg. With the Giants offence so poor and being in the National League the chances of him going deep in games is slim to none. As for the Otters, Nicky Lopez is a good major league ready player. He is batting .354 with a .426 OBP this year in Omaha and had a good season last year at AAA. Lopez also rank just outside to the Squids top 200 prospect list. The Otters also receiving a 3rd round draft pick is a bonus. The bigger question is, will Bailey have any 2020 draft picks left by the end of the season? Currently, he has four picks left, a 2nd (Jordan) 3rd (Team Canada) and two 5th rounders which aren’t worth much.
The winner to be determine, but pitching is hard to come by so maybe the 2018[and 2017] Points Champion knows more than me, which is probably the case.
