Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Both these guys haven't done @#$% all year. I drated lee and haven't used him all yr cause i ahve Votto. I picked up Ramirez when he was hot.
Do I drop Lee for Laroche and Ramirez for Infantes or carlos ruiz???
I have kurt suzki but he is struggling. I also have michael young and beltre at 3rd so I dont need Rmairez

both lee and laroche are hot right now. but are on bad teams. i would pick up laroche but would drop someone else. ruiz is on a hot streak and wouldnt drop ramirez for him. the guys you want to drop have more trade value then the guys you are picking up. can you rate?

Marcus i'd do that deal if i were you, you are obviously losing in the pitching category considering you are giving up verlander but you are getting a top notch first basemen and although he hasnt been having an all-star year he is still a proven first basemen.
Do I need to make any more trades with this squad, if so what? 12 team H2H, I'm in 5th.
C:Montero (lost Santana)
1B:Derek Lee, Lance Berkman
2B: Aaron Hill
DL:Ryan Howard, Jason Bay
SP:Sabbathia,Hamels,Wandy,Romero, Spot Starter
I'm looking for some outfield pop. Been trying to get Carlos Gonzalez or Matt Holliday for Cliff Lee, but no go.
Recently, I've been offered Andre Ethier and Clay Buccholz for Cliff Lee.
The rest of my staff is Halliday, Wainwright, Colby Lewis, Max Scherzer, Jason Hammel.
Do I do this?
team innings maxed out so they drop j weaver laa - i would like to claim him but battling with 2nd place team and i think he will pick him up because he needs k and era help - my question who do i drop for weaver i have a great staff so wondering if it would be a good option to pick him up my team
currently only 2 saves ahead of 2nd place team and he has rivera, papelbon, broxton as closer
i'm thinking of dropping either perez or hanson for wever
do you think he would be a good add
Ok, Im in a 10 man league my keepers are Headley, A. Jones and Medlen. 7th overall pick. No second round pick but two forth rounders. Trout and McCutchen are gone by other keepers. So, my questions are: 1) Who should i take 7th overall (Im thinking realisticly Fielder, C. Gonzo or Verlander) ? 2) My 3rd rounder is 27th overall, Im thinking lock up 2nd with Pedoria or Kesler? 3) If I get Fielder and Pedoria then I'll take back to back pitcher with my two 4th rounders...right?

Why in the world would Fielder, C. Gonzo or Verlander be available in the 1st Rd of a keeper league? Is this a league where you lose the pick where the player was drafted? Even then that's a lot of production to throw back into the pool.
impossible to suggest. in a keeper, id shy away from fielder with his weight and stuff. so depending on the players left at the OF/SP position you go with the guy that is at the more premium pos. idk who kesler is...kinsler maybe? honestly i like kinsler better than pedoria, but he is a injury risk and older.
I sent the guy a response asking for Hamels instead of Billingsley and he threw back a deal involving BJ Upton and said he would do the original deal he sent me if I preferred. So new ? is which offer should I take? Or should I stay put?
I give up Marcum and Hunter for Billingsley
I give up Marcum, Hunter, and BJ Upton for Hamels, and C.Rasmus
I heard that Upton made some adjustments with his swing and this is why he has been doing so much better lately and Rasmus is in a typical LaRussa timeshare so I hesitate on the 2nd deal, but am thinking I should probably take it anyway. I appreciate the feedback.
