    It's more than I would've been willing to give for Waino's "services", so there's that.

    - Houston and Washington play in the Tank Bowl for the period of July 10-23. (Could effect end of season win totals)
    - Houston could benefit heavily from Kevin Pillar or Nick Ahmed going on a week long tear at anytime, or could see some prospects promoted towards the mid/end of the season.


    I'll say he gets lucky and ends up with 38. Go!
    31.

    I think there is a pretty big difference in how different owners in this league value a 1st round pick.

    Wainwright kind of sucks now IRL, but some of it might be ERA luck. His FIP is OK right now and projects OK. He also ticks a lot of boxes for this league since his K/BB should be fine and he gets groundballs.

    Connorp has been squatting on that pick for a while, hoping to get a SP. I bet he's thrilled to land Wainwright for it.

    Yeah unlike some of my other recent trades where it was more desperation, I liked this deal a lot. I like Waino and unlike Shields he translates well for this league. But with age and declining performance I knew most would like it for maah.

    In a vacuum I think the pick is more valuable but i have a title to defend

    Seems pretty fair to me, maybe skews slightly in your favor if he performs similar to last year.

    Solid start for both the White Sox and Bluejays. Should be a close week.

    And comes out laughing in my honest opinion. I'd pass a first for Waino, in a NY minute.

    I know I'd probably reject a first for Shelby Miller

    Not much of anything separating him and Waino. Someone should bite on this.
