Absolutely not. I am the commish and I did not do that. Our league is set to "Wait till called up to majors". When they get called up they are supposed to go through waivers. We've had a similar problem with guys like Nomar Maraza, Jameson Taillon, etc... It really makes using FAAB worthless! Yahoo really needs to fix this or we will be using a different service next year.
every day on this board there's a 'let me trade 3 or4 of my best players for 3-4 of his'. What happened to planning a draft/?...that's my vent.. re: this 'trade': what are you thinking is the improvement? a quality pitcher? if so..trade for the pitcher
well stated. I guess we send Buxton back to the minors for four more years and then compare his numbers . But I think he'll be compiling numbers in the majors for those years. He's a keeper to me
Carpenter is a bench bat on my team.
I can't use him on a daily basis...and nobody is willing to give me reasonable value in trade.
I don't care what he provides to other teams if he is useless to me. Someone can add him from the FA pool if I choose to drop him for someone more useful to my daily lineup (or backup concerns).
Not much use for a .250 batting average and zero stolen bases. His runs and HR are nice but I have more than enough of those.
It's a 10 team league.
I don't really know who is available in a 10 team league.
However, using this season's standard deviation as a starting and what I know about the MLB 162 game averages and expectation of players...I would venture to say that the following players are available in your league and will outperform Puig and Lamb through the end of the season:
C. J. Cron
Alex Bregman (pending a callup before July 1)
I have a head to head keeper league in its 7th year. I need to replace 1 manager who wont be coming back. This year we will be doing 3 keepers and then going up by 1 each year after this. Rosters are 18 players which includes a kicker, defensive player and defensive team. Pretty much standard scoring with some yardage bonuses. The available team has some players like mike evans, olsen, edelman, marvin jones and Roethlisberger. Please let me know if you'd like to have this team and i'll send the invite if you give me an email address. I need managers who play all season and come back each year. Thanks
Overreact much? As someone already stated Zimmerman's out so they moved Murphy to 1B. And for the record Murphy is an atrocious defensive second baseman. Dusty is also completely enamored with Espinoza and his defense. Yes, he can't hit, but if they're winning so it's hard to argue with him. Turner won't come back up until they start losing and Baker's forced to shake things up. You've already seen how stubborn Baker can be. Look how long it took him to move Murphy behind Harper in th e order to protect him.
