Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Seager is the superior player. He is a hitting machine who has plenty of pop. You shouldn't do the trade straight up, but quite frankly wherever they are slotted next year in ranks, I will draft seager over correa.
B- Y Escobar, J Werth, K Morales, H Kendrick, A Ramirez
Lester, Gio, Keuchel, Anibal
Betances, Verrett, N Feliz, G Perkins
team is currently in 15th, but easily has the best lineup in the entire league.
Format: H2H 5x5 + OBP(bats) + K:BB(arms).
Keep 9 this year. Next year keep 8. Year after: keep 7. After keep 4 its redraft.

I would keep Rizzo, Donald, Bog, and Sano. Better to be a year too early than a year too late. I would also keep Salazar and Walker. Frankly, if you can package Cueto and Cutch for a primetime player not in decline, I'd do that.

He said it a while ago. Travis struggled. Travis begins to heat up. Travis bats lead-off... what happens rest of season? You can't be that stupid.

Toronto manager has already indicated that as soon as Travis heats up he's going to hit at the top of the lineup. He said this upon Travis' return from injury. That's good enough for me.

Too bad Rizzo is going to start over them in the all-star game because he has outproduced them. I definitely wouldn't take Votto over Rizzo in a fantasy league. Are you high? Rizzo bats 3rd or 4th in the best lineup the NL has to offer.

Frankly I agree with Mike. Cain is legit, he is worth more than Piscotty. With that said, I also like Piscotty, he's shown the capacity to make adjustments and is plenty young to add some extra pop. I don't like either deal because: Brantley. Despite being hurt, he is a very good player. He's not old. You would be better off waiting for Brantley to get healthy if you want to move him. Be patient. Wait for him to get back and get hot.
Additionally I do not like Gallo. Guys that strike out a lot tend to take a lot of time to develop. They generally have apparent flaws that pitchers take advantage of. Then the hitter either adjusts or doesn't.
In regards to etiquette: I wouldn't go farther than I'm exploring/discussing trades with other managers. Give the other manager respect to make his own decision. If he wants to trade he'll make his offer. If he doesn't want to trade he'll think your a jerk to try and rush him. And never ever EVER mention specific players. It is disrespectful to both the guy you're talking with and talked with.
Be patient with Brantley, you have time to wait for his stock to rise.
Keep 9 this year.
Next year, keep 8.
After keep 4, redraft
16 team H2H 5x5 + OBP(bats) + K:BB ratio(arms)
Bogaerts and Yelich
Fernandez Blackmon Russell
Who ya got?
I would not move Harper for Altuve and Robertson in a keep 1 league. If you're going to move arguably the most valuable keeper, you better get 3 good players, and 2 of them should be very good.

There is certainly tangible upside here. I have him in a 16 team keeper. We keep 9 this year. 8 next year. 7 , then 6. Redraft after keep 4.
