Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I'll be straight shooting like BP's PR.
Just remember to post type of league (H2H, roto, keepers), # of teams in league and important position players involved on your team.
I would hang on to Aviles if the KC coach wasn't such an idiot. How do you start Getz or Yuniesky over Aviles when your ace who's getting zero support all year is on the mound? That's just pathetic, I think Aviles is the best hitter on KC hands down. That organization is a joke. I'm going to go with Guillen I think.
Should I do this trade? I'm giving Sandoval and Peavy for Ian Stewart and Mariano Rivera. My other two closers are Soria, Feliz and Axford. I also already have Wright at 3B. It's a 14 team H2H league. Thx!

NO Sandoval > Stewart and you already have 3 closers (soria felz and axford) why do you want a 4th? Closers only boost up your ERA and WHIP. mariano wont, but having 4 closers isn't a great idea, especially when you're giving up sandoval. Peavy I couldn't care less about though.
Sandoval can platoon with 1B 3B and UTIL spots. He's beens struggling but dont sell low on a 320 hitter.
Hey jorge cantu is on the waiver wire is he worth the number one waiver? i have paul konerko and derek lee at first and mark reynolds at third its a h2h lague 12 team. i dont want to wast my # 1 waiver on him but he leads nl in rbi n has had 95 plus rbi last 2 years n lee is slumping n hes the best to be on waivers all year . lee is on my bench tho. i though about dropping d lee but i think i can drop jeff francis instead n try n trade a 1b casu i know at least one team has already asked me about one? i have good sp is he worth it

I mean, how stupid is your league? If you've seen other top players get dropped before then dont do it. But cantu should be on a team, especially in a 12 team league. Drop a SP for him and try to deal him to someone weak at 3B, and there are definitely people weak at 3B.
Or here's an idea, keep cantu and trade reynolds, if anyone would take him. See if you can get more value for the 220 hitter.
NP, as we say this granderson has gone 2-3 with a double and an RBI today, he's hitting the ball deep too. Since coming off the DL all he has done is impress me as a yanks fan. I really think highly of him right now and he should hit 30 HRs even in this shortened season. Moving up in the order will get him SBs too...If he keeps seeing the ball like he is, his avg will be north of 300 soon...He even talks like he's white
12 team H2H. Extra OF (4total) and an IF position over the regular spots. I picked up Aviles to cover myself through Furcal's DL stint. Need someone to cover for Cuddyer for a few days. Do you think I should drop Aviles for a good OF and which one? Extra stats above the regular are OBP 2B 3B.
Pagan (Just dropped and clears tomorrow, I'm 9th.)
The Stanton kid in Fla.
Anyone else under the radar I'm missing?
I'm leaning towards Coghlan...
I can post my team if you want but I think I'm covered at IF without Aviles (Berkman, Furcal, Sandoval, Figgins, Cano, Pujols cover my IF positions)

coghlan has been hot recently, Subbs and Stanton prob wont do much for you with your extra stats.
I kinda like aviles with his availability and the avg he hits for. I would try for people who all hit for good avg and high OBS cuz the 2B and 3B will come. Gardner prob isn't available but if he is, go for him. Also try to trade for granderson, he hits tons of 2B's and 3B's. Rest of that FA list is kinda meh
12 team H2H non keeper....
I have been proposed this tempting trade! Should i pull the trigger?
I get Kevin Youkilis and Manny Ramirez
I give Teixeira and Elvis Andrus
Should I do it???????
will Manny pick it up and is it worth giving my 1st pick for a Hot Youkilis, i have Reyes at SS so no loss with Elvis, what to do what to do , Thanks for your input!!!!!

You are giving up a lot for a slumping manny who I don't have that much faith in. Youk is legit, manny is meh. Teix will be fine, do not worry. he's hitting the ball hard and will pick it up soon, just be patient. Andrus is a solid SS and you could probably get more for him. He is getting tons of SBs, see if someone has stephen drew as their SS and try to deal him there. You should get something.
Or an even better idea, as a fellow reyes owner, i haven't been that impressed with his season so far. Even his hot streak wasn't fantastic, and he's been like 0-9 the past few ABs. I dont think he's trying or seeing the ball well yet and andrus seems to be better. Maybe deal Reyes for some serious value.
