    I guess I shouldn't have traded him for Iwakuma.

    I'm at full farm and I'm facing the prospect of activating Betts to make room for the draft (amongst other moves) and I'm wondering if it might be better to trade him to a team with more room on their farm and, more generally, try to consolidate assetts.

    In addition to Betts, players I'm looking to package include Span (providing as much value as he did last year and showing more power), Yimi Garcia (elite K rate, gets high leverage work on a good team, young). I also have some lots of middling 20 something pitchers that someone may like (Nate Karns, A.J. Cole, Hector Santiago) and lots of picks and prospects of course.

    Pleeeeease don't trade Mookie, he can be a franchise player for you. Or if you must, trade him to me.

    I'm not getting much utility out of Hector Rendon lately due to roster construction. If anyone is looking for a closer, let me know. I'd probably want to use him to upgrade a SP, or perhaps get a 3B.

    That's very good. And yet, not exceptional:

    Chris Sale, last month: 63 xFIP-
    Carlos Carrasco, 2015: 65 xFIP-

    Seems like Sale has been around forever, so it seems odd that he's two years younger.

    No pitcher makes my heart ache with regret like Carlos Carrasco.

    I've got a few that hurt me more, since I never owned him. Pineda and Arrieta are two guys I basically let go for nothing (Pineda in two leagues). Also, Sonny Gray and Chris Archer look like legit aces, so there's that.

    I'm not going to do anything stupid.

    Going into the season, I was a little worried about Shields' changeup SwStr%, as it had declined every year since 2010 and wasn't great last year (16.3%). The changeup has always been his signature pitch and he wasn't able to lean on it as much.

    But this year, changeup SwStr% has jumped to a career high and Shields is also throwing a knockout curve for the first time and getting great fastball whiffs too. All of his pitches are suddenly much better; he's generating an absurd 14.0% SwStr% overall and still throwing a ton of strikes and has an average-ish batted ball distribution. It's a beautiful thing.

    I just randomly ran into Kevin Pillar on the street. Congratulated him on his HRs the other day and said good luck, really nice and humble guy.
