Alex! Just wanted to say love the trivia. Definitely makes me listen for the whole show (even though I’d probably listen to the whole thing anyway lol)

Question:
I’m in second place in a 14 team points league. Would you trade Meadows and Dylan Cease for Musgrove and AJ Pollock (Pollock would be their OF and Musgrove would be bench pitcher for two start weeks/good matchups)?

I fee like Pollock could regain his normal form on good dodgers team and be a second half all star and I feel like Musgrove is much more valuable than Cease in a points league given Cease’s control issues limiting his innings which will decrease his chance for wins.

PS: great name lol

Hey! If this isn’t a keeper league then yea I have no problem with that trade because, you’re right, Cease’s command is so volatile that he can cause you a lot of harm in points leagues. Even if he gets K’s he’s rarely going to be a 1 or 2 BB guy which will nullify the K’s. Like Meadows a bit more because the health concerns aren’t as severe as they are with Pollock but I still like Pollock/Musgrove more. And thanks for the kind words!
