Commissioner Corner Message Board
recently i made a trade, i sent kershaw and hosmer for Dunn Lester and rollins. my offense stands as such in a 5x5 12 team league, with your 3 util spots. Its a really deep league.
Gallardo,lester,Dickey,Sale,Kimbrel,Frieri,Janssen, Niese, Gee,Matt Harrison, w. Oswalt stashed away and Zambrano(dropped for spot start)
Dunn completely puts me over the top in HRs,RBI and even Runs, I know what i gave up in kershaw, and I aquired hosmer a week earlier for ichiro and dee gordon.

Pre Season ranks and expectations are gone, plantar facisits wont just go away over night, When the dodgers were the best team in baseball kershaw still wasnt 2011 effective, i posted it for the enjoyment of debating sports, and to laugh at comments it got. Obviously most of you play in pu$$y leagues with 8 friends and small rosters, but this league is no joke guys are hawks on the wire, trades are impossible to work out. My teams better after the trade then before, hands down, and thats what is important in a trade.
That is a HORRIBLE trade. Not only did you trade for one of the best pitchers, he also happens to play in one of the worst divisions and baseball and in the NL. Lester plays in the AL, in the best division in baseball (and it's not even close at this point)
Also, if this helps you put it into better perspective, Dunn was dropped in my H2H 12 man league a few weeks back. He's an average player with above average power. Jimmy Rollins is also nothing special and prob will see the DL before seasons end.
TERRIBLE, i mean TERRIBLE trade on your part.
Dude - why did you even post this comment? You have already made the trade. Certainly, you were not bragging about how savvy you are at trades. All you did was validate that you made a bad trade in sending away a CY Young pitcher.

yeah but then your like most idiots who places extreme value in just one player, or disvalue bc of one crooked stat. Its not the greatest looking trade, but in terms of position (i needed a ss and steals) and how the rest of the league is ( I have 99 home runs tied with another guy, 3 others have 80+ plus Im top 3 in RBI RUNS and middle of the pack with avg. Dunn puts me over the top in HRS RBIs and a boost in Runs. Im sacrificing avg. And kershaw is Kershaw no arguing his ridiculous talent. But lester posted 2 consecutive 225k 17+win seasons before last. Ill bank on that. I dont need to go 10-0 every week to win the league, if I can get 6-7 points a week Im good money. But thanks for your opinion i wanted to see the fantasy worlds take
