Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
10 team h2h non-keeper. I just completed a trade to get Alex Rios & Kenley Jannsen for Youk & Bruce. When the trade is official on Tuesday this will be my new roster. How did I do and do you see any other movies I could make before the trade deadline to get playoff ready?
SP: Weaver, Dickey, Lynn, Garza, Jackson, Nova, Fister, Blanton (DL: Morrow)
RP: Jansen, Soriano, Street, Cook, Wilhelmsen
If Napoli turns it around and has a second half like last year, (I think he's starting to now) and players like A Gon can keep playing to their potential then I don't see you having many problems. If your not winning then start to steam some pitching with some 2 start weeks and the such. Good Luck
Once Bautista and Longoria come off the DL, you will have very strong batters so my advice is: you should trade Kinsler or Kipnis to a team who is active in the leage and doesn't have a good 2nd basemen. (You want an active team so they will respond) Personally, I would get another SP although you looked stacked. After that I would pick up Josh Rutledge if he is not taken yet because he is looking like the next Mike Trout.
I was in the same position with 2 power 2nd basemen and it helped my team a lot by trading. GL
You have a pretty good team, except the bottom of your starting pitching staff is weak imo. Referring to Nova, Fister and Blanton. You might want to add a starter. See if Mike Fiers is available. Homer Bailey is another possibility, he's pitched great except for one bad inning in his last start.
I would say you won that. Rios will likely go atleast 20/25 if not 25/25, and once Bautista or Longo come back either will make up for the slight power loss from Bruce. Janssen has been solid for me I actually own him as well, the Jays just haven't gotten him many save ops lately, and Youk kinda sucks anyway this season like he's ok but nothin special I think he may even be a FA at the moment in my 10 teamer. So yeah I'd say you won for sure.
Also sorry to ask again in your thread but why is Francisco's ERA/WHIP so high since you said he's solid just curious? Does he like implode once a week or somethin haha. I'm prolly gonna grab him just kinda curious about that.

To Clarify, it's Kenley Jansen of LA that I received. Not that other Jannssenn in Toronto.
Yeah, it seems like Francisco makes things interesting every 3rd or 4th save chance. But on my team 1 or 2 bad innings a week from a closer doesn't really move the needle overall and my era/whip stats.
