    Official Fantasy Baseball Advice Thread

    I thought it would be helpful to create a central thread where anyone can ask the community any random FBB question, regardless of whether they're in a board league or not.

    So, factoring in nothing of my current roster makeup, should I pull the trigger on this offer:

    Tony Cingrani for Eric Hosmer.

    I'd be getting Cingrani.

    12-team roto dynasty league.

    Stats are (not the greatest):

    Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Hits (H), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Batting Average (AVG), On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS)
    Pitchers Stat Categories: Wins (W), Losses (L), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Quality Starts (QS)

    No.

    I don't want ECJF to yell at me, so I'll say that Hosmer is probably twice as valuable as Cingrani all things considered, IMO.

    I've never played in a roto league so maybe that requires a different perspective but in terms of stat for stat production, Hosmer is a borderline top 20 hitter.

    Without positional adjustment.

    Hosmer hasn't played like a Top 20 hitter yet in his career. He's busting my balls - I have him in two leagues on ESPN and in the Premier League.

    Hosmer is kind of like a Billy Butler type, he gets underrated at first because he doesn't hit a ton of dingers but he'll contribute in average, obp, slg, and also give you 10-15 SBs.

    You're absolutely right, but I'll give you $100 if Billy Butler ever steals 15 bases in a season lol. Hell, even his career.

    I'm desperate for a Out Fielder for my bench. Currently have a few injuries.
    Would Anthony Gose be a worthwhile pick up for the short term?

    I'd take Lind and Skaggs. Lind's number are a bit depressed right now because of time missed but I could see him bridging the gap between him and Morneau by the end of the season. If if he doesn't, the gap would have to be awfully big for Skaggs not to make up for it anyways.

    I have concerns about Cingrani throwing nothing but fastballs.

    If this is a redraft, I'd be gunning for a guy like Haren, Kazmir, Kennedy or especially Lackey who all will likely outperform Cingrani ROS and likely come even cheaper so you can hang onto Hosmer if you wish.
