Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Atleast I think so, what do you guys think?
Dropped Chris Davis for Middlebrooks (Eh this one I guess could go either way but so far Davis is falling off fast.)
Traded Michael Bourn for Gio Gonzalez (I like Bourn but my ERA and WHIP is dreadful so I have to do something.)
Traded Cespedes for Austin Jackson ( Feel like this will cover alot of the stats I lost for trading Bourn, and I liked Cespedes but I think he's gonna be an Adum Dunn kinda cat with 30+ HR and a 220 AVG).
Also dropped Dempster for Craig (This may prove to be a mistake but I can't just leave Craig out thhere the way he's been rolling and I feel like Dempster may fall off soon.)
Bourn is an over-producing, 2-category specialist, maybe 3 if he can keep his BA up. but i'd expect a 0.280 AVG moving forward, definitely not 0.330 once his BABIP falls back to earth. selling him for a top-20 SP is a good deal...
Wonder what will happen to Middlebrooks if Boston gets healthy.Bourn for Gio, okay trade; Cespedes for jackson is a good trade, I agree on Cespedes expected numbers. I like the Craig pickup, but he left game early yesterday. Since I have him in a few leagues, I;m hoping he is all right.

Yeah not sure on Middlebrooks Jeff, I actually have Longoria so I'm just trying to ride the hot bat at 3B til he gets back.
Wasn't aware of him leaving the game, hope he is ok as well but if not I have like all my guys playing the next couple of days so I can bench him if its something minor.
I like them all....
Why not take a chance on a guy with some upside like Middlebrooks?
Gio is a BEAST and has shown that when he throws strikes, he's deadly... SBs are overrated anyway
This is the hardest one to decide, but I do like it...only if you have Power hitters to give
I just picked up Allen Craig too, hoping Cardinals find a spot in the lineup for him everyday.

Yeah I like Bourn alot, but if it wasn't for ERA and WHIP I would be in the top 2 for sure. I'm dead last in WHIP due to Lincecum, Gillardo, and Axford mostly. So I had to make some sort of move pitching wise.
Yeah I'm sort of in the middle of the pack in HR's, but I have Cargo and Konerko and LaRoche when healthy who are all possible 30-40 HR guys.
Yeah I thought I saw some people on here saying they may use him at 2B? But I don't know for sure.
