Commissioner Corner Message Board
If you can only keep 5 and you're dead set on acquiring Harper, then why not try and keep Trout, Cargo, Price, and Hamels while acquiring him?
How about Tulo, Pedroia, and Sale for Harper?

Teams get the following players -
A: Dustin Pedroia / Starlin Castro
B: Justin Upton
Team A's current keepers - Kemp, Upton, MadBum
Team B's current keepers - Stanton, Verlander, Pedroia/Castro
I'm team A and I think I improved my squad BUT I think I may have built a very formidable team for the other manager...Stanton, Upton, Verlander...OUCH
I think you have to look at your strengths...your outfield is fantastic and you have some quality young SP...his pitching gets shaky quickly.
Why not try and trade Mouse, Stanton, and a SP for Miggy, Heyward, and a pitcher. You're going to have to give up a ton to get Miggy though...can't throw Mike Minor at him (Although I like him a LOT)
I guess that I would need to know what his 3B situation looks like. If you're in the win now mode, what mode is he in?
Is he NOT enamored with Miggy or does he LOVE the potential of Stanton? Why not swap Stanton & Moustakis for Miggy?
I would look at the (6) teams ahead of you and see if they're "likely" to keep the players slotted in the 1st round. If so, keep Headley and draft Pujols or another surprise keeper. If not, keep Pujols and replace with Headley in the draft. 3B is pretty deep for quality stats...
I wouldn't accept the 1st one if I were you AND I wouldn't take the second one if I were him.
How about this:
Get - Miggy, Heyward, Taillon
Give - Stanton, A. Jones, Jansen

I planned to start another league this year but got tied up with other things. Would any experienced owners out there want to add a league to their resume.
This is what I'm thinking:
Auction Draft - ONLINE
Keeper for 2014
C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, UTIL
(3) SP, (3) RP, (3) P
R, RBI, HR, SB, AVG, OPS
W, SV, HLD, K, WHIP, ERA
GP MAX = 162
IP MAX = 1450
IP MIN = 1300 (Since Yahoo can't support this a min IP yet, reprecussions will be flogging)
If you're interested, leave your contact info here. If not for this year, I'll get it together for 2014.
I don't know if I'd make that deal. I like Jackson too much to drop him but it depends on your valuation of Posey vs. Monteror, Darvish vs. Lee, and Jones vs. Stanton. I can't see dropping Jackson as he could steal 15-20, hit 15-20 hr, score 90+ runs, and bat between 270-290. That's a tough young outfielder to let walk in a Dynasty.
