This league I typically rolled 3 closers in years past. This year after I drafted them poorly I decided to go with the extra starter and just hope for saves some weeks. My mistake was taking Corey Knebel in the 7th round who I ended up dropping. Drafted Brad Hand as well in the 10th who was good but I dropped him for Yates when he was traded.
I traded Aaron Judge and Chris Archer (2 days before Judge broke his wrist) for Corey Kluber, Aaron Hicks and Mitch Moreland (ended up dropping for a pitcher)
I really killed it with Story Bregman and Degrom. They were stalwarts all year. Also Merrifield leading the American League in steals and batting over .300. The other trade I made wasn't as great but it worked. I traded Paul Goldschmidt when he was cold and Walker Beuhler (who was hurt for a while after I traded him) for Rhys Hoskins and Gio Gonzales.Gio was good for a while then went real cold. I know I'm not an expert but I targeted Bregman and Story and I made the right call with DeGrom. (7th pitcher taken in my draft)
Thanks for reading!
