Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

Hey guys, I'm the commish of a great keeper league in it's 2nd season and I'm looking for a replacement manager. The team is currently in 6th out of 10, but the manager hasn't been as active as I'd like, so I'm looking for a active manager who's willing to update daily and respond to trade offers promptly. It's a 10 team H2H league in which each team keeps 12 major leaguers and 3 minor leaguers (our version of farm system using NA slots) each year. Key players on this roster include: Braun, J. Upton, Beltre, Kinsler, Pujols, Heyward, Rizzo, Tanaka, Cueto, and Hamels with minor leaguers Zimmer, Russell, Soler, Appel, and Sanchez.
Please let me know if you are interested in taking over this team!

Jarred Cosart is also available. He was pretty good at the end of the year last year and had a stellar outing tonight. You think he's worth add over these guys?

Yeah, it's definitely hard to part with such an exciting speed/power combo type player, but with Jones to play CF I think it makes sense for me. Thanks for your input!
After making the Kipnis trade, I have one open spot on my roster. I'd like to pick up a SP to replace Gallardo.
H2H Categories: IP, W, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, QS
These are some of the FA options:
Jorge De La Rosa
Joe Kelly (If he wins 5th spot)
Which do you think I should add?

Baez isn't available. Pretty much all top prospects are taken in this league. Best 2B prospect out there is Odor. I'll probably end up swapping Prado for a SP or another Util player. I took it just to have Kipnis for the long run. Think Gomez has "bust" potential for how high he's valued currently. I also wanted the flexibility at Util.

Thanks for the input! I think that's what I'll do! Gonna sleep on it and maybe get some more opinions tomorrow, but I'm definitely leaning towards accepting.

Thanks. I would really like to get a 2B that's keeper worthy for the long run and I like the flexibility this would give me at Util. Got some really mixed reviews when I posted the Ventura/Gomez post, so just wanted to see what people thought of this one.
Hey guys, I know I've been posting about this possible trade for a while, but I've been talking to the manager and I switched it so he would now be getting Gallardo instead of Ventura (who I like more just because of upside). So the trade is:
I currently have Prado at 2B. Adam Jones is my CF, so Gomez is my everyday Util player. If I traded him I could insert Kipnis into my starting 2B spot and these would be my possible Util men based on who's hot:
I like the idea of trading for a long term keeper 2B and adding more balance to my keepers, but I don't want to trade Gomez just to reach for position.
What do you guys think?

Thanks, Matthew. Better to plan long term then to use Cobb for this year? The league has already drafted and all that (don't know if I made that clear in post before).
10 Team H2H Keeper League (Keep 12 ML & 3 MiL)
Jonathan Gray (COL - SP)
Alex Cobb (TB - SP)
I would have to drop a player too since Gray would be in NA spot. Cobb would need to outperform Teheran or Gio to earn a ML keeper spot.
Do it? Or no?

Well I have Adam Jones to play CF and my 2B options are Prado and Murphy, so I thought I'd be dealing away a strength of my team to fill a weak spot, but also don't want to deal the best player in the deal just for a position. What does everyone think?
