Can someone explain how roto scoring (At least in the ESPN leagues) works? I'm probably going to end the day in last place, and I don't know what that means. Yeah I know it's only day one and I'm overreacting here, but it would be nice to know exactly what I'm looking for after the first week of the season. Might as well ask to see if there are those who play this format on a regular basis.

My pitchers on Tuesday: 19 IP, 3 H, 22 K, 0 BB, 0.00 ERA, 0.16 WHIP.

That's easily my best single-day fantasy pitching performance ever. Darvish, Bumgarner, Romo, Betancourt, Pestano

Got this offer that I'm really close to pulling off here in my keeper league.

I trade Sandoval, Reddick and Fowler for JUpton and Moustakas.

I also have Machado at 3B.

Thoughts?

How do you guys think I did on this trade?

I gave up Cano (still have Utley and Walker at 2B), Kung Fu Panda and Hellickson (still have Weaver, King Felix, Matt Moore, Anibal Sanchez and Brett Anderson) and got Longoria, Choo and Cishek.

Horribly.

Cano>> Longoria
Hellickson>>Cishek
Panda>>Choo

What was your thinking behind this?!

Here's how I looked at it.

Longoria > Panda
Cano >>> Choo but I badly needed outfield help and like I said I also have Utley and Walker as 2B so I could afford to trade Cano.

Cishek isn't as valuable as a good starter but I also need saves and even after trading Hellickson I still have King Felix, Jered Weaver, Anibal Sanchez, Matt Moore and Brett Anderson so it's not like I have no starting pitching.

I just viewed it as maybe giving up a little more value but at excess positions for a little less value for more need.

I don't really know much about keeper leagues but I don't think I would do the deal. You would have to really love Upton or Moustakas to do that deal imo and Fowler is a pretty good youngish outfielder as well.

Ugh, ESPN screwed me over today.

Half hour before the Nats game, my team page tells me Bryce Harper's not in the starting lineup. So I bench him for Michael Saunders.

Just checked my team stats for today, and Harper finishes the day not only in the lineup, but batting .500 with a solo HR.

Also, Joel Hanrahan SUCKS!

He's the only pitcher I had in action tonight, so my team ERA for today: 67.50.

Bumped my overall season ERA almost a full run.

My 10 team league team today went:

16/37 6 R 2 HR 7 RBI 1 BB 0 SB .432 AVG .436 OBP and that's with having Gardner (who got rained out) in at UTIL over Machado who homered.

Everyone who played had a hit.

I'm still waiting for my offense to do anything. Victor Martinez, Jhonny Peralta, Adam Lind, Neil Walker and Yoenis Cespedes have been useless.

Granted today my offense produced a .278 average and .472 SLG% to bring my weekly totals to .242 and .341. Luckily my pitching is keeping me close in my matchups. Luckily I benched Homer Bailey today because I hated that matchup of him facing the Cards, I was rewarded with 5.1 shutout innings from Matt Moore, Rafael Soriano pitched a scoreless inning and got a save and Koji Uehara pitched a shutout inning so my total for the day was 7.1 IP, 0.00 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 1 win, 1 save and 7 strikeouts.

Jarrod Parker single handily cost me the ERA category in 2 leagues today.

I'm undecided if I should cut ties or just not start him for a few starts and hope he regains form.

Waiting for Peralta and Lind to become impact hitters offensively is a lost cause. I hope you have a deep bench.

Peralta is a SS, so I'm not that concerned about his offense. I also have Pete Kozma at SS.

I'm dropping Lind once I get Tex back and I just got a trade for Allen Craig and he has 1B eligibility.

Yes. Pretty low risk, could be decent reward.

Justin Masterson was my last pick in the draft and Paul Maholm was picked on waivers before the start of the season.. so far, they have provided early dividends.

I need a closer in my h2h league. Any closers who are in trouble of losing 9th inning duties?

Might want to look into picking up Andrew Bailey if he's available

And Mujica from STL is also worth looking at.
