Corey Knebel about to get hit with -22 points... just for trying to get three outs

Gave up three walks and and then boom, grand slam. Top it off? Against the Padres

Well at least in real life it keeps them farther from the Cubs

What do y’all think? Worth regrading these? Sucks the most expensive cards in the submission got the worst grades

I think the heritage could be a 9. Bottom corners are a little soft, but I’ve seen worse. Idk about the black though. Seems like most of them are off centered.

I'm certainly no grading expert, but the bottom edge of the Heritage looks rough, and the black is definitely OC. If I had to guess, I'd think the black would have a better chance at bumping up to a 9, but I have very little experience and really don't know

Idk but those are sweet cards Bam.

The Heritage my have a shot at a re-sub, the black is pretty OC though.

Hopefully greenjake will be active both here and in the league. Only been a day or two, but haven't seen any lineup changes yet, though he has changed his team name. Haven't heard back from PMs either

I texted him, although while I think he'll be active on here I wouldn't expect him to log in everyday.

It's crazy how times change. I wish I got into fantasy early enough to be able to own Felix, Pujols, Miggy, Roy Halladay, etc in their primes. Just would have been fun

Had the #1 waiver claim for weeks, it not months, and I'm glad I stayed picky with it. I was tempted to claim Kingery and Marwin when they were dropped, but I decided to risk it and thankfully nobody claimed them so I got them as FAs without burning my waiver slot. Cano was an instant grab for me, I know he was out for a long time but that doesn't matter to me as I have all the time in the world. He'll come back and play at a high level too, so I was happy to wait. But, a solid mid tier pitcher was much more valuable to me than another 2B

Still have Marwin who has heated up lately and is helpful as a super, super utility, but I've now swapped Kingery and Cano for Fernando Romero and Bundy. Happy to get a boost to my rotation long term. I'm pleased with some of the deals I've been able to make this year. I could have a solid rotation going into 2019

I didn't have the roster space to wait on Cano, that was the worst timed trade... ever. Cano broke his wrist and a few days later suspended. Hamels still wouldn't be too valuable to me with my current rotation and likely would have been dealt regardless. On the flip-side it allowed me to pick up Scooter Gennett, who has been one of the best 2nd basemen in the league offensively. It all worked out alright.

Yeah it certainly wasn't terrible for you in the end. But I'm pleased it worked out the way it did for me

Hey, guys. Sorry I haven't been too active. Been real busy this week and still getting used to things. I'm looking to shop Seager if anyone's interested. He's my biggest asset so far, so I'll be pretty picky, but shoot me some offers if interested.

I'm not opposed to making another trade or two before the deadline, but I'm getting pretty close to being content with where I'm at. Would love to find another top 40 SP or two, and/or another mid tier pitching prospect
