Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

Crasstastic, I own bruce in a 10 team league if only because at that point in the draft (south of round 17-20) when can you get a player that hit 25+ hrs & 90rbis. If you're playing someone once a week as a backup most of what you'd want is a HR or a SB b/c if he was better for more than that you'd be starting him. In a league where 50 outfielders at a minimum are started I think he's very ownable. I would hope the 38th ranked OF would fall into that (contrary to what people like #$%$ think of his prospects).

Man i hope you're being paid for your opinion since you have such a high value assigned to it. I can understand why people make comments disparaging you on other posts now. I was being cordial and you start touting your vast experience in fantasy baseball like its going to get you somewhere in life. Have fun with that, #$%$.

The easiest way is to go into your league's player page and print the page sorted as you'd like to see it. To see co-mingled pitchers and batters you can print the internet site with the overall list up I believe.

My Yankees fan heart weeps for this analysis as we ran the league for 1/2 a decade based on this philosophy and have lost it more recently.

I would say that EVERY year people expect Beltre to stop hitting. He may never stop. if you think he'll stay healthy i think its a very even trade. I would make them toss in a closer just because of ADP of those two I think is more than 10 apart.

I'm not one to bug you on your opinions because its just that (an opinion) but he has at least 9 batters who should start in a 10 team league. martin is the 4th ranked catcher, Pujols is 12th so def "startable" (excluding Posey), Altuve obviously, Franco is 9th Rendon 10th and Sano is 5th 3b's, Pollack and upton are obviously top 50 players, Davis is 8th 1b. I'm not sold on the offense either but lets not act like those are not a "startable" offense in a ten team league.
For pitching he reached for saves and it cost him depth at SP and he overdrafted bench hitters (a common mistake) and lost out on some SP depth.
Its a 6th place team imo but not a trainwreck as you describe. Come on man.

That is a terrible offer for a top 5 pick. Cargo might not play 50 games this year and Paplebon is not a top closer. I wouldn't trade Harper (non-keeper league) unless you were getting 2 top 30 talents. There's a bit of a gap from the top 3 hitters to the next 10.

its H2H but I'm confused as to which categories you would have liked me to target more. Are you down on the old guys (pujols, Morales) and not buying the hype on the young ones? (Schwarber, Lindor, Blackmon machado, Puig)?

That's actually a part of the rules of our league. You can't keep a player over 3 years and if they were undrafted automatically become a 3rd rounder. I'd have to look at who had Blackmon and whether his other 3 (max) keepers were better. I got Blackmon at 20, Upton at 40 (not sure why b/c I love his multiple category opportunities in that lineup) and Puig fell to 60 because he's never produced anything ever. Lindor I do find weird that I was able to get him so late. Might have gotten lucky there at 81.

Who in the world are you drafting with? I can see Goldschmidt at 2 but then I guess Betts and Degrom on the turn but how in the world did sano, cruz and jones fall to you?
One of the other teams in my league accidently drafted 4 2bs and that left me with Daniel Murphy. He needs SP so i was going to offer to him to swap our 7th round picks (keeper, 10 team, 5x5 league). That would be lester for Odor. Would you consider that trade and would you make it? I'm thinking I can get decent pitching from the waiver wire right?

I actually like your team but your SP is very light. I think you can always scalp Saves because closers go down and lose their jobs. Glasnow will break camp I think and he'll reward you. Giolito & Urias will be up by June IMO. I love those 3. Keep on the waiver for Sp and you'll be good I think. (mateo is billy hamilton lite at ss if they'd ever let him be.)

Since its keepers I was hoping to see if either ends up better than Salazar this year. I have one NA slot to keep one for the year until their call up anyway. Thanks.
