Is this serious?


To be fair at one point Trout wasnt considered "Trout" he ddint have that same huge level of hype coming into MLB draft as Harper did etc

That being said: IMHO - No I dont think hes on same level. And I think those owners may be offended.

But hey you never know non keeper league and someone gets excited and has Bryce hurt..

Well he's 10 for his last 53 and has only stole two bases since the end of April...I just dropped him in a 10 teamer. 14 team though he may still be worth a look.

10-teamer he's probably disposable. 14-teamer he's a very worth while OF. Would like to see him run more, but otherwise he isn't terribly off from most projections. At this rate he'd eclipse both his R and HR totals from last year, and fall short of his RBI and SB. Running is a finicky thing that sometimes just happens in waves.

Thoughts on Pujols? I feel like he could turn it around, but to what extent? The injuries seem more frequent and nagging each season...

How confident is everyone in Hamels and what are most getting in return for him? :-?

I recently traded Anibel Sanchez for Hamels. I'm expecting good things in the 2nd half

With Wil Myers possibly getting called up shortly, I'll have a glut of outfielders. I need a K guy and do you guys think I can swing a buy low/sell high deal of Dom Brown for Justin Verlander? :-?

Might be a stretch, but if the Verlander owner has a glut of high-K pitching that's not a crazy way to initiate trade talks.
