Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
6x6 league, holds, slugging, extra categories. How do i improve my team. Who should I try to acquire and who should i trade? Here is my team:
Thanks. Where are my weaknesses?
Your entire team is built on "hopes and prayers".
Your team is composed of PROSPECTS not PLAYERS.
You are one of the many fools that think a dynasty team is about around POTENTIAL.
In order to win a team this season you need performance TODAY.
Quit building your team hoping all your prospects will have their breakout years the same season.
Remember...younger isn't better...better is better. There are plenty of veteran MLB performers that will trounce your team of "hopes and prayers".

Are you ever right about anything, or do you just troll the boards giving out bad advice all day?
The team is build around Goldy, Kipnis, Bruce, Jones, Kershaw, Greinke, Zimmerman, Kimbrel, and Chapman - everyone of which are established stars. His bench is based around high upside prospects, which is exactly what you should be building your bench around anyway.
Now if you would rather have Bronson Arroyo than Taijuan Walker, you're more than welcome to. We all know that Bronson is a good pitcher, and he won't suck. He also won't be great.

Nice team, but serious overkill on saves. No one needs Kimbrel, Chappy, and a 3rd (and your 3rd is pretty damn good). I would move one of your 2 big guns to pick up a lower level closer and an OF w/ a little bit of speed (not too much needed).
Otherwise, I like your balance of vets and prospects. Should be in good shape for quite some time.

Thanks Rick. this is the 3rd year of the league. Somehow I won the first year and I finished 11th of 12 last year. Its a H2H league, where the winner gets one point for the weak after you win the categories. Seems like I had a lot of bad luck last year to finish so poorly. While everyone was grabbing the Pujols' of the world in the first draft, I was grabbing young guys, Hence my team. We keep 25 and throw 5 back every year to have a small draft. THats how I got Buxton, I had the number 2 pick. I grabbed snyndergaard with my 2nd. Then siegrist, mesoraco, and finally wilson. I was trying to figure out who I should trade to upgrade my outfielders, since we play 2 utl spots also. Or do i just sit pat ?
