DateQuestionAnswer
2019-05-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)It isn't even Memorial Day and our 16-team, H2H dynasty league is already desperate for pitching. My choices are Luis Cessa, Trent Thornton & Jefry Rodriguez. Would you take any of these to get some innings and Ks and hope you don't screw up other pitching categories? Thanks

Give me Thornton of those guys. (Craig Goldstein)
