Was offered Samardjza for Chris Davis today. 6x6 roto with OPS/QS. I'm first in HR, RBI, AVG, OPS and SB but my pitching has been terrible. Am I getting good value here?

I would like to sell him, but only for the right deal, which is tough. Everyone knows he could've been had very cheap a month ago (late draft pick, WW material), so it's hard to get any real value for what he has done so far. I would be happy to get a top 20 OF for the team I have Buchholz on, but who knows. Until then, I'm just going to enjoy the ride.


I'm going to have to disagree. I think Buchholz is going to be one of the best pitchers in the AL. His control has been impeccable and he has employed the splitter to great success. I think he will continue to pitch excellently.

As expected, it's hard to get value for someone drafted late or was a WW pickup very early in the season. So let's just enjoy the ride.

No, I wouldn't do that deal..you could get a better/more proven pitcher for Davis at the moment.

What are peoples thoughts on RA Dickey? Trying to acquire a SP using Arenado or Frazier as bait.

I strongly disagree, I think Price is a much better talent.

Depends on league cats but I don't see Price getting many wins on TB this year, even when he starts to dominate. I definitely see your side though.

5x5 h2h. Worst pitching in the league and I can (hopefully) replace his bat.
