Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Dunn I'm taking over most guys right now. He's been better than Upton and Bautista the last month or so. I figure I'll give Putz until the break and see what they do with him. Best FA 3B options are M.Young, Rendon, C.Johnson, Plouffe... SP's are just a streaming options right now. Dempster, Skaggs, Pettibone, and some other random's are about it right now.
I have one team I've neglected for a little while now that needs some fixing. I had been rolling with Reynolds for most of the season but it's to the point I HAVE to look elsewhere. It's looking very thin on the FA front so who would be the best drop or trade candidate? My pitching is a mess as well. Here's my line-up..
OF- Batista, Jackson, J. Upton
Util- A. Dunn, Leonys Martin
BN- A. LaRoche, Castro
SP- Lynn, Ryu, Fernandez, Pettitte, Gallardo, Kennedy, Feldman
RP- Chapman, Soriano, Perez, Putz
There's a few players out on waiver and f/a but I need to see who's going to fit best. My lineup goes like this.
OF- McCutchen, A. Craig, Beltran
Util- I. Desmond, Gyorko
BN- Scutaro, M. Young, Belt, Bradley Jr.
SP- Medlen, Wilson, Haren, A. Sanchez, Vogelsong, T. Hudson, Teheran
Werth and S. Miller are out on waivers right now, M Carpenter, M. Reynolds, Ryu, Benoit and Herrera are f/a.
Thinking of Dropping Belt and maybe Haren for Werth and Herrera. I need a possible closer first off so Benoit and Herrera seem the biggest targets BUT some backup for the OF wouldn't be bad.
I'm not expecting Flowers to be huge just after 3 games but just thinking a hot start could be good for now. I'm keeping Gyorko for sure b/c I can always plug him into 3b and put Trumbo in the OF. Teheran and Jackie Bradley are out there to grab too I can't decide who'll have the better upside between them and Hicks.
Every yr I do 1 random auto pick public league just for the hell of it and usually come no less than 4th but this one isn't looking good from the get go.
OF- McCutchen, A. Craig, Beltran
UTIL- I. Desmand, Scutaro
BN- M. Young, Belt, Gyorko, Hicks, J. Jay
SP- Medlen, Haren, Wilson, Hudson, Vogelsong, A. Sanchez, B. Anderson
My top concerns are a catcher and a closer. Boggs is the only closer for now out on waivers. Flowers is the most productive catcher, so far, out there. I can't decide to drop Hicks, Jay, Young or Belt to go after Boggs or another starter to maybe trade later. Thoughts?

Giants better pull a big rabbit out of their hat if the hope to win it now. Pence was a nice addition but he can't carry them. Time for me to go drop him b/c all my bench and dl spots are full.
Just wondering what type of value everyone places on a player who is on the DL. I have Votto, Ortiz and Stanton all on the DL but I need to move one of my 1B players b/c I already have Fielder. Would you take a deal of say Votto for Cano or Votto for CC...

Personally I wouldn't give up that much pitching and if you did I'd want Hamels in return. You're losing all your front line starters and one of the main pieces you're getting back with Votto is still a week or so away from even coming back.
