So is it now pretty much guaranteed that he exercises that reported $9 million player option with LA? Got better all year but never looked like his former self.

I assume that was written before Wilson walked the first two batters he faced in the 8th yesterday, which combined with 2 line-drive singles lead to a 3-run inning that cost Ryu a win?

I actually kind of like Brandon League, but the Dodgers don't seem too excited about him.

Has turned it around, as duly noted by BP's ever-vigilant MikeG in the current Free Agent Watch.

Brian Wilson, RHP, Los Angeles Dodgers
Even though almost nobody in the fantasy baseball community writes about them, you have to carry middle relievers on your active roster in mono league formats. You HAVE to do it! The best ones earn $15-20 and two strong non-closer arms can carry your staff to the promised land for little or no cost. Wilson is not going to supplant Kenley Jansen barring an injury, but he has been riding a hot streak of late, posting a 0.87 ERA in June across 11 1/3 innings with 10 strikeouts, three walks, and only one extra-base hit allowed. If Wilson is not owned in your NL-only, he is a superior choice over many of the backend starting pitchers who won’t do anything put push your strikeout totals up while hurting you everywhere else. —Mike Gianella

I am sooo happy that the Dodgers think Brian Wilson is better than he really is ...

Dedicated 4x4 player also. Drafted Arodys V with my 4th round reserve pick.

We're lucky. I joined this league 20 years ago ... it was probably about 3 years old at the time ... and 3 of the other owners at the time are still in it. That's 1/3 of a 12-team league that's been consistent for 20 years.

Of the other 8 owners, the most recent addition (BobinTx here at P&C) is a friend I've been in fantasy leagues with for about 25 years ... 23 in fantasy baseball (we started up a league when we worked together in Virginia at the time) - he joined 4 years ago. The average for the other 7 owners is about 11-12 years in the league. We just lost a 14+ year owner ... but that finally allowed us to contract back to 12 teams to deal with the loss of the Astros.

There is absolutely no sentiment in the league for moving to 5x5. We'll keep chasing our cheap future closers ... Kimbrel was a first round ULTRA pick the year before he hit the majors ... this year our ULTRA board is littered with names like Jose Dominguez, Jake Barrett, Nick Wittgren, Justin DeFratus, and Archimedes Caminiero that no self-respecting 5x5er would be wasting picks to wait on ... and we will continue to appreciate that the point of a strikeout is to make a guy walk back to the dugout, and not to log gaudy strikeout totals, so a 2.7 WAR season by Eric Stults should be valued just as highly as a 2.7 WAR season by Jeff Samardjia.

Agree wholeheartedly with this. I'm in a 4x4 NL that isn't cheap, and it has a core group, but to get to 12 we take in some transients. As such, we've had to recognize the market for 4x4 has shrunk, so next year we'll be moving to 5x5. Auction this coming Saturday will have a tinge of sadness to it.
