    I haven’t read anything on how HOU Ken Giles was an afterthought for HOU first save opportunity of the season…Peacock just continued pitching into the 9th…am I turning nothing into something?

    • Rotoprofessor says:

      It is possible it turns into something, but for now we’ll chalk it up to Houston just riding the hot hand with Peacock going well. If it happens again, we’ll get concerned

    Hello Eric. Question from a current subscriber. I’m currently in a H2H 6×6 league with Saves but not Holds. I’m currently rostering Allen, Hand, Greene, and Miller. My original plan was to draft Miller as handcuff to Allen and to add weekly help to my K’s and ratios, however with only a 22 man roster with only 1 DL spot that is already occupied by Deshields, I’m considering dropping Miller for some more flexibility with my bench bats. I’m looking at Owings who has multi position eligibility and has the potential to steal some bags and has also started hot in a good lineup. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    • Rotoprofessor says:

      If the league doesn’t count HLD Miller has value in terms of the ERA/WHIP, but isn’t nearly as important. I’d try to trade him first, as someone will value him, but if not I can see dropping him given the length of your bench. Barring an injury he’s not going to get saves, so the value is minimal

    Thanks for the feedback. My thoughts exactly. I have a new owner in our 10 year league who only drafted 7 pitchers and I have contacted him about Phan and he is open to make a deal. I have Verlander and Martinez who I have said are not available, however I thought about packaging Miller with Godley, J. Grey, Manea, Wacha, Estrada, or Junis. Do you think that is too much? Again, your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    • Rotoprofessor says:

      I wouldn’t do it with Godley and Gray is debatable. The other 4, if you could get that I’d do it in a heartbeat

      • Barry says:

        Thank you sir! We so think alike as I drafted Godley as my SP3 and Gray as my SP4. I will let you know if anything goes thru. Pham*

    It is a Minnesota league, however our new owner is originally from Kansas City so he bit on the Junis/Miller combo. In our 3 OF league, J.D. Martinez, Srpinger and Pham look pretty strong with Marza, Marwin Gonzalez and Owings as my bench options. Thanks for your encouragement!
