  • 12 team h2h. I want to pick up Norris and Rajai Davis too. I'm hanging onto Jeter and Lncecum for sentimental reasons. They don't even play anyways but could use the speed and insurance at catcher. I don't even play my bench right now and like it that way .

    melky or nelson cruz?

    by Ben Apr 9, 2014 5:19 PM

    that trade made more sense when I had doumit to drop but im doing alright with adding outfielders no? this is why its always good to wait? why give up a top tier 1b and pitcher for that? my roster is shaping up nicely I feel. now if I made the deal id have to drop someone or a throw in and I don't want to drop anyone.

  • I have Blackmon and melky on my bench and b oth are red hot right now but someone just dropped cruz. my starting outfield right now is Bryce, alex Gordon and alfonso Soriano. I don't know if I need cruz or not. I could use the steals in ways more.

    also was offered samardja, mccutch, choo and Napoli for felix, fielder and lincecum early on and was told to jump on it but im pretty happy keeping felix and doing alright adding more speed and outfielders no? I know you guys said jump on it but felix is pretty hard to trade for me. I am pretty stacked with pitching I feel but felix, greinke, yordano and peavey are the only guys I trust right now. felix is a clear #1. outfielders can be found imo more than a top of the line starter.

  • got him off waivers in my 12 team league. Someone jumped the gun. Dropped headley for him so hope Donaldson can do what he did last year. Also considering offering fielder, lincecum and carter for mccutchen, Napoli and samardja. I was offered mccutchen, choo, Napoli and samardja for king felix, fielder, lincecum but not sure I want to give up felix. thinking he might bite if I subtract choo and felix.

    I could use another outfielder and could stand to trade a bottom end pitcher and fielder for one I would guess.

    use 3rd waiver on soria?

    by Ben Apr 3, 2014 8:44 PM

    jansen, Holland and veres. a 4th wouldn't hurt though. veres is no sure thing.

  • in a 12 team league? h ewas waived.

    I could take Napoli and lincecum out of the deal all together.

    Napoli is 1st base and would go in a platoon with butler, carter and Napoli. I don't mind trading fielder for this reason. like you say th e upgrade offensively would be worth it to me?

    I think my team is fine that's the thing minus SS. 3rd base has some question marks too. my outfield should be fine barring injury.

    I would probably then trade choo or Soriano for a pitcher that's the thing. maybe take choo out of the deal and take on of his better pitchers back? Alex Cobb is the best pitcher he has. Pretty bad. He has Cobb, Kennedy, Samardja, Weaver, Burnett, Zach Wheeler, Mike Minor. I don't like any of them lol. I am a fan of Weaver somewhat.

  • 12 team h2h. I trade Fielder, King Felix, Doumit for McCutchen, Choo, Napoli. Don't really want to trade felix. need a SS as well. He has reyes but im not that high on him. he offered me mccutchen, choo, Napoli, samardjia for fielder, felix and lincecum and was thinking of countering with this. I don't know how many outfielders I need but seems like im winning this deal. I could offer Soriano maybe for one of his pitchers in return but I don't know.

    by Ben Mar 31, 2014 2:26 PM

    always do that after the draft though who i was targetting and who i ended up with.

    wanted could have maybe had

    price
    ubaldo
    castro
    boegarts
    holliday/beltran could not have had both holliday and price.

    ended up with

    greinke
    moore
    rollins
    headley
    soriano

    everything else went how i wanted. wanted hosmer and moustakis too but too many royals being a royals fan lol. hosmer went 5th round anyways and i had fielder in the 2nd round. could have taken yu darvish or strasberg 2nd round and gotten hosmer instead of greinke too. moustakis went like 8th round and i wasnt taking him that early lol.

    I agree iwth your assessment of my team. I did well. My 3rd base, SS and secondary pitchers i could have done somewhat better. thing is i was deciding between greinke and price as my 2nd pitcher. i just took greinke because i havent had him in a while and he is in the national league. it was a coin flip even th ough price was probably the better pick. moore was just there. i could have maybe gotten a different pitcher there later like ubaldo jimenez i really liked going in and improved my 3rd base and shortstop. .ike i said i took perez when i wanted castro and boegarts. other than that the draft pretty mcuh went as i would have liked. soriano and could have used better outfielders too. i was going to take holliday early as well. then was looking at beltran. ended up with soriano. took pitching instead.

    anyone on this? It's mccutchen. I just don't see a reason to mess with my team overly. rollins hitting a 4 run bomb today makes me think I should just stay put.

  • 12 team h2h. I like the team i drafted but missed a ss late. took salvy perez because he was the last catcher i thought would break out instead of starlin castro and boegarts would have been my next 2 picks. instead got rollins and headley and took a flier on jeter late.

    i'm being offered mccutchen, choo, napoli and samardja for felix, fielder and lincecum. I think i'm going to stand pat for now. he has reyes at shortstop i could counter with. dont really want to trade king felix. im not opposed to trading fielder though. wouldnt mind trading matt moore maybe. fielder, moore and lincecum for mccutchen, napoli and reyes seems like it owuld be too much?
