The offer on the table is as follows:
I GET: 1B Mauer, 3B Moustakas, SP Kershaw
I GIVE: 1B Votto, 2B Cano, RP Andrew Miller
My initial reaction is that I am giving up too much here. I would prefer to Give up one of my abundance of OF rather than either Cano or Votto, and I would prefer to lose one of my other closer besides Miller. Just want to see your opinions on this trade. Thanks
As the title says, i'm looking to take over for a dynasty team. Preferably a league with 12+ teams, I don't really care how good or bad the roster is. Send me an email If you have one available, bdtoole05 at yahoo
Yes, I think you win this big time then. Aoki will be solid this year, and Miggy is Miggy. I do like Bruce, but his .260 ish avg not ideal. And I don't like Zimmerman as much as others do. Plus, in a keeper, having Miggy and Trout makes everything else easier.
That is the full list. I ended up taking Davidson. He was the only offensive guy left (hedges ended up getting picked as well) so I went ahead and took him due to his power potential, although I don't like what I see with the K's. As for Paxton, he had decent minor league numbers and I see more upside to him than the other pitchers I listed. I really dont see as much in Zach Lee as other people do.
Nope those are the guys. Remember, it's a 20 team dynasty league so just about every notable Prospect is allready rostered. This is the second round of drafting prospects for this year so these are the best guys left in the yahoo! system
I'm in a 20 team, H2H dynasty league, where we pick 2 prospects each year. These are the guys left to choose from, and I am fairly torn on who to pick! I'm leaning towards either James Paxton or Matt Davidson. What do you guys think?
Ethan Martin, Cody Buckel, Zach Lee, Austin Hedges, James Paxton, Jared Cosart and Matt Davidson.
I would take it simply based on Tulos draft value. If you dont like him, ship him of for something you need. although I dont see much that you need to improve on
I would take Felix definately. Since your league counts complete games as a stat, King Felix is your man. He has thrown at least 5 complete games in each of the last 3 seasons (he threw 6 in 2009). The next closest to that over the last 3 years is Verlander, who threw 6 last year and 4 the 2 years prior. After those 2, nobody has thrown nearly that many over the last 3 years. Plus, Felix is just an overall beast and having one elite pitcher will definately make things easier for you over the course of the year.
As for the second pick, it's really hard for me to choose. I really dont like Pedroia out of the guys listed honestly. I understand wanting to pick him due to position scarcity, but I think he's over-rated a bit. I feel like going after Neil Walker midway through your re-draft is a better option. And for upton, you've allready got Cargo and Braun in the OF. Don't get me wrong, I am a huge Upton fan and expect some increased numbers from last season, but It's also a risky play considering that he's with a new ball club (even though it's a better offense in ATL, that doesnt always mean increased production). I actionally have been shying away from Upton in drafts, I feel like it's a risky play as he could either either have a great bounce back year, or he could continue to not live up to his hype. A-Gon is kind of out of the quetion here compared to your other options. Personally, I would take Starlin Castro. I do see a lot of risk here, but I see huge upside as well. Shortstop is still a slim position to me, and I think he will produce better than Pedroia (you're other postion scarcity pick). Plus, if he does breakout this year, you will be able to keep him for years to come! Any way you slice it, it's going to work out though. I just prefer Castro in this particular situation.
Oh I see. Yea, I would keep Stanton. People are low on him due to his horrible team BUT he has a good chance of being traded at some point. And even if he isn't, he Is still a great keeper option for years to come
