Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Madison Bumgarner (SF - SP) & Josh Reddick (Oak - OF)
Mike Trout (LAA - OF)
My pitching pretty much sucks anyways, every week my ERA seems to be consistently over 4. I am losing ERA and WHIP like every week anyways. Bumgarner is easily my best SP. The guy with Trout says he wants a top 10 SP (Bumgarner is at 7 right now) with low ERA and WHIP. Bumgarner would have the second lowest ERA on his team at 3.09 (Cueto has 2.52) and easily the lowest WHIP at 1.05 (next closest is Cueto has a 1.21).
I figure I can stream SP with the extra spot.

-The Prodigy- I wouldn't change your OF or SP for sure. Your OF is strong and you got a few great SP. Time is your cure, if you aren't in 1st place, then give it time and you should catch up to the first place team.
thinkin about trading for some more pop and a pitcher this would be the trade:
elvis andrus and alfonso soriano
asdrubal cabrera and roy halladay.
i know what ur gonna say about soriano he has more homers than asdrubal but i like the upgrade (power wise) over andrus. but the question is about halladay. would you do it?
Sorry D-Neff to disappoint. I agree with having Lawrie/Kimbrel because Lawrie has many more years ahead of him. I made a mistake. D-Neff, realize my opinion isn't the final answer, I just give things to keep in mind.
Would you accept this trade? I get Justin Verlander, A.J. Pierzynski, and Josh Reddick. He gets Carlos Gonzalez, Michael Morse, Mark Teixeira, and Dan Haren.
I'm a little skeptical to trade an every day player for a pitcher but its Verlander.

I am not sure if you are underrating your players or what. I would definitely not make that trade. Gonzalez is a very important aspect of any fantasy team. I would not trade him away. Your pitching staff looks fine. If you want a good pitcher, consider picking up Mike Fiers or Dan Straily.
B Ryan Howard
With the potential DL stint for Molina, assuming his thumb injury lands him there, would it be too much to give up Heyward, who I just traded for, for Buster Posey? Or should I shoot for another catcher? This is a 12-team PRO roto league.

I would keep Heyward for sure. I have picked up Jonathon Lucroy in my league. (Expecting he is not taken) He was doing very solid the first part of the season then he got hurt. He's back in the lineup and doing great again.
Would giving away Gallardo for G.Stanton be fair and good trade for me??
My OF are Jones, Trout, Ellsbury (I feel like I need power)
My SP are J.Santana, Verlander, Gio, Cueto, Parker, Capuano, Gallardo, Lincy

I am not sure that they would accept that trade. Unless you have superior infielders, you don't need an OF too bad. I would trade for somebody else. If that trade was offered to me, I would take it because it is a little lopsided and there is always a utility spot, after I accept it, I would try to trade an OF for an Infielder.
