man...our offense is hit or miss. 22 runs scored so far this year and only 4 not via the long ball. it's the basketball equivalent of live by the 3 and die by the 3

I always have a solid pitching staff, don't have a closer right now till Santos gets his job back, don't know who Jansen is. Hoping for a Fernando Rodney pick up like last year lol
Based on your points system, I would go with Montero. Dunn is going to kill your team's BA.

Don't know who Kenley Jansen is??? Check out his K/9 numbers (filthy). Jansen is nice to roster in case Brandon League fails.

BTW, no guarantee that Santos will be closer.

See if Fujikawa is still available. Marmol is failiing.

See also if Jim Henderson is available. Axford is failing.

If you want to gamble on players with upside then keep a look out for Wil Myers and Oscar Taveras. Myers for sure will be called up within the next few weeks. Taveras will be called up if Beltran gets injured or if Jon Jay does poorly.

BTW, my team was autopicked in our RF league last year (I entered draft but no one was there), so I know where you're coming from.

To RedsandBuckeyesFan,

Are you concerned about Joey Votto? I'm looking at his numbers from after he came back from injury last season to present, and it's not looking good (where are the home runs?).

When he came back to play late last year, he wasn't 100% and didn't finish the season close to 100%.

This year early on, he still looks like he is trying to find his swing. I'm not too worried though, I think he will be alright in a week or so. Slow start, but hopefully once he is close to 100%, the power comes back.

JP is fine defensively, not with Dickey though. He rifled some balls against the BoSox this last series, he didn't get the results but they were darts. He can't call a game,says who? He has veteran pitchers that have the right to shake him off anyways. It's not like he's shaping a game for inexperienced pitchers.

Comparing him to Bargs is ridiculous. JP is in his 3rd full season, Bargs is in his 7. Bargs comes off as a lazy, non-caring stiff. JP is the total opposite. You guys must've jumped off ledges when we had the likes of Greg Zaun, Barajas and Bengie Molina catching the Jays.
I never said great average or anything all I said is that his average isn't that nice.

"not with Dickey though" - exactly. + 3rd season as you just said - lots to learn.

wow you couldn't even consider the similarities that ppl always just look at his hrs and ppl always look at someone else's ppg and then wonder about the other things. I just don't like the overhype Arencibia gets - pretty similar to DD actually.

Jp gets hype? Where? lol, most comments about him are negative and i'm not just talking here. Most of it is about his defensive game which has gotten better. Obviously he has lots to learn about knuckleballs, only like 2 guys throw 'em in the league. that could be said for the majority of catchers

You cant even consider Arencibia's offensive value in regards to the position he plays

Most are negative I've seen a pretty even split between negative and positive actually. Well that's something he's going to have to learn more about if the Jays' Ace is one of those few guys.

Oh I can but I don't like how some ppl just look at it + consider it the end all.

complain? it's called criticizing. it's critical in sports. but hey, you know what - we shouldn't criticize (or complain) about anything - everything's perfect. there's no need to criticize. we should just appreciate the wonderful product of the amazing athletes and management which are bestowed upon us as we are but ants in life compared to their divine presence and capabilities.

lol ok

you undervalue jp's production in regard to his position, that's all.

show me his hype, show me his inability to call games like you claim, lets see his poor defence without bringing up the knuckleball

Closer situation in StL kinda iffy too. Jason Motte is injured. Mitchell Boggs stepped in but had a disaster outing yesterday. Trevor Rosenthal blew two holds situations, but he's the one I would bet will be the closer if Motte is out. Watch out for Rosenthal too.

I was offered Josh Hamilton in a trade. He's 31, somewhat injury-prone, and is so far performing like 2012 version of Albert Pujols (bad start). I'm concerned about his lack of plate discipline, but he can still mash. I'm looking to upgrade my HR, R, RBI numbers. Think he's worth trading for? I have guys who are more balanced in terms of BA, R, HR, RBI, SB.
