    If he plays a full season next year, I guarantee 50 HR+SB.

I'd probably slot him in the rotation along with Kazmir. Jason Heyward and Justin Upton are pretty notorious fantasy teases. Good players but people have frequently overpayed for them because they were supposed to be superstars.

    You know you don't need to pump his tires anymore right?

    Ugh I dropped Gsellman during my BORED playoff run in a desperate moment and came to regret it. Now that I've reacquired him, he should naturally resume his fringy swingman career trajectory.

    I hated owning Francisco Liriano. Even when he was good you never knew when he'd drop 6 walks on you. Also, Alex Cobb because he has the skillset, but seems to always find a way to turn in a near-useless season because of injuries.

    Liriano was a heart-breaker especially in his early Twins days when he looked for all the world like he would be Johann Santana 2.0. That's an excellent choice.

    Scott Kazmir is very much available now.

    Bryce Harper has been pretty frustrating. Probably could say that about Stanton too, and Puig.

    That plug just cranked more HR than Stanton has ever hit in a season.
