    • Thanks for all the Non help! LOL all I have determined is that everyone I know is 50/50 on this deal!

    • I always go for the philosophy of sell high buy low. Sometimes it works out great others it goes boom. My team is devastingly good though.

    • Are you nuts? dont care what anybody says... Jump on that trade. there will always be someone like andrew pop up this year somewhere. not many peavy's around.

    • I'd do it. Peavy is going from a cavern to a bandbox, and there is no guarantee he will hold up. I DO like him this year, if he falls to the right level of the draft. While it is clear that Hamilton and Upton have a huge potential ceiling, their floor was shown last year. Neither has been able to show a consistency. McCutcheon came up last year and became an almost immediate contributor, even in that sorry lineup. Long-term, I would rather have him over either Hamilton or Upton.

      That being said, you do still have 2 - OF and a UTIL slot you can fill. One more injury to Peavy and he could be through - or he could last a long time.

      It is also much easier to make moves for pitching during the season off of the FA wire, as long as you are not too in love with the guys on your team. I always build my offense primarily, take an anchor pitcher, 1-2 solid closers, in the 1st 14-16 rounds, then build bench depth and SP depth as the draft goes past that point. Has always worked very well for me. But that is just one opinion. Depending on the league, there are many ways to draft and win, it is imperative that you know how your opponents think during a draft as well.

    • It was definitely both predictions. More likely a sign of other bad managers though. The Pujols deal, like are you kidding me? Anyways, good for you though. Like I said, you would destroy my team in a 10 man keeper, and I would like to think of myself as a decent manager.

    • dang.. you got some steals in those trades... Pujols for that! nice!

    • 1 - Drafted Mauer after somebody dropped him because it was unknown how bad.
      2 - Traded for A-rod after hip surgery
      3 - traded for Holliday when he sucked in Oakland
      4 - Traded for Utley w/ a package Butler, Beckham & Bucholz
      5 - Traded for Halladay with Nolasco & Bedard when he was healthy
      6 - Traded for Pujols w/ A. Gonz & C. Gonz

      I used my low waiver priority to scoop up every hot prospect and then traded them all in packages to the top teams.

    • I guess this guy still doesnt understand I blocked him...

    • My question to you is how in the hell did you end up with a team like that in a 12 man keeper league. I am in a 10 man keeper and your team would destroy mine. Either you are a good manager or the other managers are fishes.
