    Closers seem to be less valued in a large league like this, probably because the replacement level for reliever isn't as horrible as it is for the other positions. Most owners will punt saves before leaving a nearly impossible hole to fill somewhere else.

    Is there anyone with spreadhseet access during the day who can process everything since the Zimmerman pick?

    No, but if you want, I would be willing to speak to your boss to explain to him/her the importance of updating the spreadsheet in a timely fashion.
    Just shoot me his/her phone number by PM, and tell him/her to expect my call around 3:00 today.

    That should really help smooth things over.

    Schwarber projects better and I'm not sure Tendi is a long term CF in Boston. Both are young. I like Moose and he gives me flexibility in future trades in having both him and Seager.

    Draft picks are nice currency to have in future trades. I basically turned the 11th pick last year into Yu Darvish.

    I'm of 100% certainty that he's always been this way. Truly a lost cause.

    I think most people, myself included, just don't like banking on a guy whose value is so strongly tied to Coors. He gets traded to Oakland tomorrow and suddenly he's a below average option.

    Yeah, he's got 1 year left on his deal and with Rodgers coming up, it seems unlikely that they extend him.

    Still a great contact guy wherever he goes, so he should still be useful assuming he leaves COL.

    I can see that, but based on who is left on the board and what he should put up next season if healthy...I thought it wasn't much of a debate. Kind of hard to pick based on what if scenarios. What if Colorado trades Story and signs LeMahieu for 2-3 more years. He isn't really a long term piece on my team but a good option for next year imo.

    In what way? Tendi is going to contribute across all categories. Schwarber will hit more homeruns but I don't think that will be enough to give him more value.

    He isn't which is why I traded him to you in the first place but unless you think Schwarber is going to get CF eligibility, I don't really see the relevance in this context.

    I think he's suggesting that Schwarber is a more valuable OF (assuming catcher is totally off the books) than Benintendi going forward. He may well be, Schwarber's power potential might be better than Tendi's good-but-not-great all-around profile.
