Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
10 team keeper H2H league. We get to keep 8 players. Here's my team:
C - Ramon Hernandez
1B - Texiera
2B - Cano/Theriot
3B - David Wright
SS - Tejada
OF - Josh Hamilton
OF - Nate McLouth
OF - @#$%udome
Util - Jim Thome
Util - Delmon Young
BN - Mark Reynolds
BN - Gary Sheffield
BN - JJ Hardy
BN - Jose Guillen
DL - Travis Hafner
SP - Peavy
SP - Sheets
SP - Javier Vasquez
SP - Oliver Perez
RP - Jon Rauch
RP - Hong Chi Kuo
RP - BJ Ryan
DL - Matt Capps
DL - Eric Bedard
We have some expanded categories, on offense we count 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, K, BB, E, Avg, OPS. Pitching counts IP, W, CG, SHO, SV, HR, K, ERA, WHIP, NH.
Given that, the league obviously leans toward offense since there are more categories, plus 3 of the pitching categories are low occurances (CG, SHO, NH).
Sorry for all that info, but I figured you'd need it to make an informed opinion! Anyway, I was thinking about making some deals. What do you think about these trades:
Texiera/@#$%udome/Thome for Longoria/Joba
Hamilton/Thome/Tejada for Kazmir/Alfonso Soriano
Also, I have been proposed a trade by someone which would send me Jacoby Ellsbury for Jim Thome and Javier Vaszquez. Should I pull the trigger on this one if the other deals aren't accepted?
Do you think either of those are fair deals? I just took over for a deadbeat owner and I'm stuck in dead last place (by a wide margin). I'm just writing this season off and trying to improve my team for next year, so I'm trying to get 2 keepers for one of mine. I don't care if I overpay by adding players I won't be keeping. Your thoughts? And which 8 players would you keep off the current roster?
Here is my team. 12 team H2H league. Im in 2nd place out of 12 teams. Is this a contender for the championship???
Stats: R, HR, RBI, SB, Avg., W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP
OF-J. Hamilton, C. Quentin, N. Markakis
Util- J. Morneau
BN- C. Hart
DL- C. Lee
SP- A. Galarraga, R. Dempster, D. Lowe, J. Vazquez, J. Danks, C. Young, T. Lincecum
RP- F. Rondey, J. Isringhausen, B. Zeigler
in my yahoo public league there are 5 bn positions. currently i assign 2 of those to position player and 3 to sp. would there be any advantage to changing this to 3 spots for position players? i would drop a closer of which i have 5. thanks.
Should I do it? I have been offered Kazmir and R. Harden for D. Wright. I have Cantu that would take Wrights place.
Here is my line up
Kinsler/ Mark DeRosa
Liriano - when he gets back
