Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Is this team? Took over this team a year and a half ago and it was bad, had keepers like aroid,granderson,rivera,konerko just to name a few. So last year and the beginning of this year I have been working hard to establish a good young core who will compete for years to come, seeing as how there are at least 6 teams with all 7 players in the top 50 players. Makes it hard to Rebuild. But I think I have put together seven keepers who will carry my team to multiple titles .. just not this year.
Its a 12 team 6x6 QS and OPS are the 2 extra cats. 1 util, 1 IF slot 1 NA slot for prospects
Ruiz,Rizzo,Lawrie,Machado,Simmons,Abreu,Jennings/Brantley/AJAK/Texiera BN:Dom Brown Xander B NA Taveras
Wacha Cobb Cingrani Sanchez Chavez Porcello Stroman Robertson Melancon Rondon
you are a few years away. It is hard to win without a superstar. Machado's stumble set you back a while. I would shop your closers. You aren't going to compete now, so maybe you can steal a top prospect from a competitive team.
good start. Keep all players? If so and you are not competing this year then you can ditch melancon, rondon, ruiz and maybe even lawrie and dom brown. in a 12 team league I bet there are prospects like david dahl, giolito or stephenson, mookie betts, odor, austin meadows or others. khris bryant probably taken?
I don't see why you wouldn't be able to compete this year if managed correctly. I am in a league with a similar format. It has 8 keepers rather than 7 which in theory should make it more difficult, but last year's 10th, 11th and 12th place teams currently sit 2nd, 3rd and 5th. Their teams were awful at the end of last year too, and there were about 4 of us who had 8 players in the top 50 as their keepers. Haven't read over your team because I am not a fan of the format you posted it in, but either way it should be possible unless you drafted horribly.
