in your opinion, when is Wander Franco getting the call?

I picked up Wander Franco. Should I hold on to him or drop him for Eugino Suarez or Gavin Lux?

Nelson Cruz & Aroldis for DJ Lemahieu & Giolito. Who wins


I have Kirilloff in the IL but he’lo return soon… so should I drop him and grab Franco or what should I do?

Standard H2H ESPN league

Help! Lost trout, seager, Duffy’s, Strasbourg, and lazardo! Need some offense, do I drop Duffy or lezardo for a bat?

I would drop Luzardo

Is Contreras with picking up and dropping Gary Sanchez?

Is Carson Kelly coming back any time soon? Or should I just move on and drop him?

In a 10 team h2h points league with quality starts, would you give up Jose Ramirez and Jesse Winker for Gerrit Cole? Thanks!

I have Trout in a 10 team keeper league. Was offered Altuve/S Marte and Darvish for Trout, Hoskins and Z Plesac. If I did it, my keepers for next year would be T Turner, J Ramirez, DeGrom and either Scherzer or Darvish. Should I do it?

Recommend holding onto Huascar Ynoa in a 10 team/ 2 IL position league?

Alright peeps, let’s get this started!

Managing SPs: Outlook on deGrom and Bumgarner? I also have I. Anderson, Meada, Civale, Scherzer. Do I need to make a move? Some available pitchers are DeSclafani, Manaea, Bassitt, and Ryu. Or do I make a big trade?

In a 12 team mixed 5x5 league. I am looking to trade Anthony rendon for a pitcher. What are a some pitchers I should be able to get for him?

Let’s start with the elephant in the room…

Here’s how you should always view top prospects:

Gaining another year of control before FA = Mid-April
Gaining another year of arbitration for Super 2 = Early June

Basically, Franco was never going to meet that mid-April deadline so the next possibility is early-June. In an honest moment, I don’t see that happening. I think September is more realistic, but that does not mean I would drop him. If you have the spot, stash him.

In a 12 team mixed 5x5 keeper league I have Trevor Rogers. I can keep him in the 20th rd next year or is it time to sell high on him?

I just answered with a little more depth regarding Franco overall, but specifically to you… I’d hold him for as long as possible.
