Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
10 team H2H Keeper League. Who should I ask for for Bautista? The guy has the following players that I am interested in: Morse, Wright, McCutchen, Stubbs, Choo, Weaver, Cain, Strasburg. Wright would replace Bautista at 3B. All others would help my team.

I don't think I'd do Bautista for any two of those guys. I don't like giving up hitting for pitching and I just don't trust Wright at third base. The Mets are beyond horrible and he's an injury risk. If you're dead set on it I guess I'd go Bautista and some lower level guy on your team for Wright, Morse and McCutchen.
I'd start with that and work your way down. The worst mistake you can make is underselling on a top 5 pick.

That's tough for me because I'm usually all about offense. I use upper tier pitchers to trade for upper tier hitters so in this case I'd probably lean toward Miggy. I tend to stream pitchers a good bit so I'm not big on owning a lot of top pitchers. It's a strategy a lot of people aren't comfortable with but I think I'd take Miggy. Especially with third base eligible.
Who do you have at second (if you're giving up Pedroia)
its a 12 team roto keeper league, what would you do to help out my pitching staff, or trades in general to help out this squad.
3B- R Roberts
RF- J Upton

For one thing I wouldn't have another catcher on my bench. You can get Salty or someone just as good at any point during the year. Ramos is probably available.
I also wouldn't have Loney. To me he's pretty worthless for a first baseman. You can duplicate his stats with almost anyone. Adam Laroche would be a better option.
I may look to deal Scherzer for one more steals guy. He's a name guy but his numbers suck. 1.35 whip and 4.3ish ERA. You can get those stats anywhere. I'd suggest trying to move him for a steals guy. Maybe a Boafacio. Also look at add Jason Bourgeois who's been traded to the Royals. Had 30 steals I think with almost no playing time.

That's tough given that Carpenter had a set back in his recovery and is set to start the year on the DL. If he was healthy it would easily be side B. I'd give the small nod to side A because of the health of Carpenter. Though I hate Bartlett. Haren is the best player in the deal so when it's close otherwise I usually opt for the best player.
Looking for some trade advice, as far as who I should use in a trade. I want to improve at 1B and OF. And I need to do some free agent pick ups once waivers clear tomorrow. Don't plan to keep Perez and Doumit. Any advice on who I should trade and who I should go after?

1B - Edwin Encarnacion
2B - Robinson Cano
3B - Evan Longoria
SS - Elvis Andrus

I would look to move either Andrus or Gordon. I'd hang on to Gordon (Dee) because he has similar value as Andrus but you can get a better price for Andrus.
I would shoot for a Desmond Jennings or a Choo to help the outfield or maybe a Hosmer if you're lucky for Andrus to help at 1B. I'd also settle for Morse at first.

I would go with AGon for sure. I would follow up with Longoria if he's there or maybe even Hanley. I look for Hanley to have a big year and has tons of upside for the second round. Longoria is safer and I think a huge bounce back year.
What do you expect from Pettite this year. I assume is innings will only be @140 but pitching for the Yankees I assume he is good for 12-14 wins if he is anything like his old self.

I wouldn't count on him winning 12-14. For one thing he needs to prove he can at least make the team first. This is probably a bad sign for Hughes who will be left out.
I'd expect somewhere around 8-10 wins with about a 4-4.3 ERA. He has to pitch in ST and extended spring training for about six weeks so he's going to miss a month I think.
Don't draft him and if you do make it late late late. 1 dollar in an acution in AL only.
