Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I just took over a 10 team dynasty. Points League
The team isnt to good and i have the #2 Waiver and am grabbing Oscar Taveras
SS: Aviles (dropping)
OF: Joey Bats, Aoki, Melky, Soraino
BN: Freese, Laroche, Hart, Suziki
BN that im dropping: Berkman, Ludwick, Plouffe, C. Lee, Plouffe, Ruiz
SP: Shields, Milone, Volgelson, Fister, Kuroda
RP: Casilla(dropping for Mo once off FA) only play one RP
BN: Chen, Dempster, Harrell (probably dropping all three)
Im thinking of keeping a Core of Middlebrooks, Rizzo, Aoki, and Votto, trading/dropping everyone else to get a young team so i win in a year or two. I wont win now.
So what you think? Thanks.
Well, I don't know what you can accomplish by dumping the majority of your team.
Other core guys I'd consider:Bautista,LaRoche,Shields,Kuroda,Harrell,Fister,Vogelsong, and Dempster.
Yeah your bats are awful. The group of Kuroda,Fister,Vogs,Dempster are trade away pitchers.
There are a lot of young pitchers coming up in Bauer/Miller/Turner/Cobb/ and then the minors guys of Hultzen,Walker,Cole,Gerrit,Teheran to watch. And many more. So the pitchers you have I'd look for someone to take them who is lacking in depth/peace of mind guys in depth.
2b:Josh Rutledge...I'd acquire
C:Avila is awful and youre eye may want to focus on:Perez/Lucroy/TDA/Zunino/Rosario. Zunino is a bench warmer personally, I think Seattle dumped Jaso because he's that close to ready.
OF:Taveras is already on your radar good.
Go for it, the team doesnt look to great, especially pitching. I would start with bautista because you could probably get alot for him. I like taking over teams like that, to build it the way i like.
