Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Looking for thoughts on him. I don't really follow basketball... Is his current level of production sustainable? I am looking to acquire a player who puts up a lot of points with a decent FG%, and he was a player I was looking at as he seems to fit that description (...so far...)
Even your original offer would have been a huge loss for you. I am surprised the other guy didn't take that and run.

The team looks pretty good to me. I would give it a month or two at the start of the season and see how it shakes out. One move I would look into prior to the season would be to try and cash in on the hype around Baez. I would definitely see what you can get for him. Also would try to flip Braun. If things aren't going well in season, then Beltre and Hanley are players you must sell I would say.
Ellsbury side for me. Neither of Zobrist or Eaton are anything special and the closer position is always incredibly volatile. If you had a need for a closer, you should be able to get one off the waiver wire early in the season presumably.
Looking for early opinions.
12 team H2H
R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS, W, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP
I have liked a 6-2 hitter pitcher split in the past but not sure I can justify keeping any other pitcher than Sale this year... Thoughts?
Not enough info. Categories? Type of league? Who are the rest of your keepers? Who would be the other player now becoming a keeper be (assuming both Murphy and Scherzer were keepers)? Is there any sort of costs associated with different keepers, or is it a league where the keepers just go to the first or last few rounds (keepers all the same costs)? Without knowing any of this information, I would say no. I think I have always been a bit more down on Altuve than most though.
I would think Carter will score more goals and get more shots and have a better +/-. Ladd will get more PIMs, hits and assists. These two are very different in terms of what they bring for fantasy. For me, it would depend a lot on where your team needs are. However, not knowing that, I would lean Ladd.
I would do that. It is a very smart sell high. Nash and Giordano will both regress. Malkin will always be great if he is healthy. I realize it is probably very difficult to part with two players who are doing so amazing right now, but I think this is a fair deal that you would win.
Given the information here, no way. You can't afford to lose Halak.
Without consideration of team need, it is a fair deal. However, your team will go downhill if you do this trade, having only Stalock and Lundqvist as goaltenders.
Is there any way you can alter the deal to get another goaltender back (preferably a clear #1 guy on the goalie's team), OR are there any decent goaltenders available as free agency that you can add? If you can somehow fill the massive hole you will be leaving in goaltending, the deal is fine. Otherwise, you are only hurting yourself.

Not really close to enough information. However, personally, I wouldn't give you a D man with any value at all for Thornton... However, maybe someone would give you like a Jason Garrison, Erik Johnson, Dougie Hamilton, Dennis Wideman, Brent Seabrook, Roman Josi type.
