    anyone have any advice?

  • AKMAN by AKMAN 2 hours 45 minutes ago Flag

    Which is a better trade in a keeper pool --- lose pick round up the player was drafted -- categories are R, H, HR, RBI, AVG, XBH, SB, BB

    Team A gets:
    Josh Donaldson (drafted round 9)
    18th Round Draft Pick

    1) Team B gets:
    Jorge Soler (Undrafted - lose 25th round pick)
    6th Round Draft Pick


    2) Team B gets:
    Marcel Ozuna (Undrafted - lose 25th round pick)
    5th Round Draft Pick

    Team A may need to give up a 4th rounder with Ozuna in this deal.
    Thoughts? Thanks.

    Arrieta over Hamels? Really? Thanks for the input but that'll never happen

    Keeper Help

    by AKMAN 6 hours ago

    Haha ya i got that. I didn't really even think of that. Also didn't look at V-Mart's stats before this year. The guy hit over .300 the last 4 years with like 80+ RBI in each one. I was thinking regression from this year for him but even if he does regress that's a great line to go down to. Good call by you I think i'll go with that. Thanks for the help!

  • I keep 4 players and I lose the draft pick ahead of where that player was drafted the previous year (i.e. drafted 8th round last year i'd lose a 7th, Undrafted i lose my last round pick etc...) Categories are Runs, Hits, Homers, RBIs, Steals, Average, Extra Base Hits, Wins, Complete Games, Shutouts, Saves, Strikeouts, ERA, WHIP

    My Team:
    Player 2014 Draft Position 2014 Final Rank Current O-Rank
    Buster Posey (SF - C,1B) Round 3, Pick 9 42 32
    Víctor Martínez (Det - 1B) Round 15, Pick 9 7 76
    Joe Panik (SF - 2B) - 896 1131
    Juan Uribe (LAD - 3B) - 304 365
    Erick Aybar (LAA - SS) - 120 191
    Marcell Ozuna (Mia - OF) - 92 117
    Chris Carter (Hou - 1B,OF) Round 18, Pick 8 94 96
    Brett Gardner (NYY - OF) Round 11, Pick 9 95 99
    Hanley Ramírez (Bos - SS) Round 1, Pick 9 119 21
    Jorge Soler (ChC - OF) - 977 78
    Starling Marte (Pit - OF) Round 5, Pick 9 62 53
    Wil Myers (SD - OF) Round 4, Pick 4 875 188
    Grégory Polanco (Pit - OF) Round 14, Pick 4 430 174
    James Shields (SD - SP) Round 7, Pick 9 115 83
    Héctor Santiago (LAA - SP,RP) - 425 527
    Yusmeiro Petit (SF - SP,RP) - 199 311
    Casey Janssen (Was - RP) Round 18, Pick 4 273 309
    Cody Allen (Cle - RP) - 110 114
    Aarón Sánchez (Tor - RP) Round 21, Pick 9 260 345
    Edinson Vólquez (KC - SP) - 154 341
    Cole Hamels (Phi - SP) Round 9, Pick 9 67 44
    Phil Hughes (Min - SP) - 102 140
    Miguel González (Bal - SP) - 265 342
    Josh Collmenter (Ari - SP,RP) - 178 305
    Jake Arrieta (ChC - SP) - 53 89
    George Springer (Hou - OF) Round 13, Pick 9 318 45
    Brett Lawrie (Oak - 2B,3B) Round 6, Pick 4 781 223

    Right now I'm thinking Hamels (lose 8th), Springer (lose12th), Soler (Lose 25th), and right now I'm thinking Arrieta (lose 24th) but i'd like to hear other suggestions. Right now only guaranteed to keep Springer and Hamels. Thanks.

  • Roddy White -- Atlanta Falcons
    Torrey Smith -- Baltimore Ravens
    DeAndre Hopkins -- Houston Texans

    Which one would you rather have the rest of the way? Thanks!

    You lose the round up that the player was drafted not the round they were drafted. I picked Fielder in the 2nd Posey in the 3rd Myers in the 4th and Lawrie was drafted in the 6th not 5th round (still a bad pick but its not as bad).

  • The league is 12 Team H2H we get 4 keepers and we lose the round up they were drafted. My team is:
    C - Buster Posey - Lose 2nd rounder if kept
    1B - Victor Martinez - Lose 14th rounder
    2B - Aaron Hill - Lose 7th
    3B - Jake Lamb - Lose 25th
    SS - Erik Aybar - Lose 25th
    OF - Brett Gardner - Lose 10th
    OF - Gregory Polanco - Lose 13th
    OF - Chris Carter - Lose 17th
    Util - Starling Marte - Lose 4th
    Util - Billy Butler - Lose 10th
    BN - Dustin Ackley - Lose 25th
    BN - Marcell Ozuna - Lose 25th
    BN - Michael Taylor - Lose 25th
    BN - Jorge Soler - Lose 25th
    BN - George Springer (DL) - Lose 12th
    DL - Hanley Ramirez - Lose 1st
    DL - Brett Lawrie - Lose 5th
    DL - Wil Myers - Lose 3rd
    SP - Cole Hamels - Lose 8th
    SP - James Shield - Lose 6th
    SP - Hyun Jin Ryu - Lose 9th
    RP - Koji Uehara - Lose 15th
    RP - Casey Janssen - Lose 17th
    P - Cody Allen - Lose 25th
    P - Aaron Sanchez - Lose 20th
    BN - Kevin Gausman - Lose 25th
    BN - Jake Arrieta - Lose 25th
    BN - Wily Peralta - Lose 25th

    I'm definitely going to be keeping Springer and Polanco however after that everyone else is up for option. Any thoughts on maybe keeping Sanchez especially if he has a shot at starting next year? Also I won't be keeping Hanley Ramirez because it makes no sense to. As of now i have a top 3 pick and I can just redraft him if I want to next year. Thanks for the help!

    it's a 3 year max for keeping players. Posey was a 3rd rounder this year so he would cost me my 2nd round pick next year and i have no interest in keeping Hanley when i can redraft him next year if i want to then. Does anyone think i should possibly keep Buxton or just redraft him earlier next year?

    Great trade by you assuming the rest of your pitchers can carry the load now. Can you answer my post Keepers?

  • AKMAN by AKMAN Jul 24, 2014 12:55 PM Flag

    League is a 12 team H2H Categories are: R H HR RBI SB BB AVG XBH for Hitters and: W CG SO K SV ERA WHIP for the Pitchers. My team is:
    C - Buster Posey
    1B - Victor Martinez, Billy Butler
    2B - Aaron Hill
    3B - David Freese
    SS - Hanley Ramirez, Erik Aybar
    OF - Gregory Polanco, Brett Gardner, Marcell Ozuna, Austin Jackson
    BN - Byron Buxton, Joc Pederson
    DL - Starling Marte, George Springer, Wil Myers, Brett Lawrie (Only actually have 3 DL spots)

    SP - Cole Hamels, James Shields, Hyun Jin Ryu, Trevor Bauer, Kevin Gausman, Jacob deGrom, Jake Arrieta
    RP - Koji Uehara, Casey Janssen, Cody Allen, Aaron Sanchez

    Basically the fantasy year from hell for me. Lost Prince Fielder right away and its more or less just been downhill from there... Anyways we get 4 keepers right now I'm thinking Myers Springer Polanco for sure not quite sure about the 4th guy. Any suggestions? Also we lose the pick from the round up of the player we keep so right now I'd be losing a 3rd rounder, a 12th rounder and a 13th rounder. Thanks for the help!

    what's wrong with this question?

  • Pick one and what's your reason? Also categories are W CG SO SV K ERA WHIP and it's a keeper league

    you say the average scares you but Davis' isnt much better and Springer has more walks and homers than Davis in less ABs. i would have offered up Davis instead if that was possible. If you're in win now it's a good move but if i'm him im keeping Springer. Like i've got Springer and Polanco on my team drafted both and intend to keep them for the max 3 years

    i'd keep Springer over Davis or Desmond. the guy was almost a 40/40 guy in the minors so the speed is bound to come eventually. But getting back to the question, in a keeper i would actually consider trading away Hamels if it meant getting Springer as a keeper

    Team A. They get good all around hitter in Adams and a great pitcher who's just in a rough stretch of games in Scherzer for a guy who has killed it right now but its only a matter of time until pitchers catch on to his faults you would think. Can you answer my post Shelby Miller or Yordano Ventura? Thanks.
