    how did i draft

    Lou n Janelle Lou n Janelle Oct 29, 2012 8:08 AM Flag

    I like it, and actually I have many of the same players.
    Paul, Thompson, and Turner are all guys I drafted. I also really like Lowry, Faried, and Asik.
    Not sure if Jason Kidd has anything left, but I guess he's worth a flier.
    I'm not a Milsap fan. I had him last year, and despite what his final numbers say, he was frustrating. He basically had two outstanding months, and was average the rest of the year. Plus I really think they want Favors to play since they traded D-Will for him.
    Other than that, nice job. Definitely a playoff team.

    I trade griffin and I get David lee in return. I love Griffin, but I am in trouble in both FT categories.
    I did recently acquire Chauncey billups for free throw help, but is it enough to offset griffin's terrible FT shooting? The rest of my roster are all decent FT shooters.
    Please help

    Mayo for Garnett

    And Harden is ranked in the top 40 players in the last 30 days. Do it before the other guy realizes you are getting the better end of the deal

    if the other guy wants to do it, then do it. Garnett will be back soon, and young as quietly become very solid fantasy player..plus you are getting rid of two disappointing players in Mayo and Ben Gordon

    Questions just ask!

    I am in first place and have been for the last month with a 2 point lead. I have a pretty balanced team but I am wondering if I should make a move with Blake Griffin.
    He is single handedly killing my FT%. I'm currently a 4, but the guy who is a 5 is already 20 points better, and the guy who is a 3 is 13 points loser than me.
    I am a 9 in rebounds, but it's tight, and Griffin has helped me there.
    So should I try to trade Griffin now and maybe sell high, or should I keep him and take my chances with FT%, especially since there is such a large gap between me and the guy ahead of me?

    Please help...
    I may be able to get Roy Halladay for Matt Kemp. Kemp is heating up, and he gets stats in every category, but I also have Corey Hart, Jason Bay, and Josh Hamilton for OF's.

    I'm in 2nd place and my only weak categories are AVG, ERA, and WHIP. I took care of average by trading for Martin Prado earlier this week, now I need to know if I make this move.

    I love Kemp, so I'm not sure what to do....I NEED ADVICE

  • Lou n Janelle by Lou n Janelle May 31, 2010 1:54 PM Flag

    I have been talking with a guy who wants Ben Zobrist, because he desperately needs a middle infielder, and now he also needs a first baseman because he had Morales and nobody else. I have three first basemen in David Ortiz, James Loney and Joey Votto. I can afford to lose Zobrist since I also have Kelly Johnson at 2B, and Jose Reyes at SS.

    He is willing to give me Chase Utley and Cole Hammels for Zobrist and Votto. I'd rather trade Loney than Votto, so I have been thinking of offering Loney and Zobrist for Dan Haren.

    Here is what my team currently looks like, I'm currently in 2nd place:

    Yadier Molina
    Joey Votto
    Kelly Johnson
    Jorge Cantu
    Jose Reyes
    Matt Kemp
    Nick Markakis
    Corey Hart
    David ortiz
    Ben Zobrist
    Luke Scott
    John Rauch
    Leo Nunez
    John Axford
    CC Sabathia
    Justin Verlander
    Felix Hernandez
    Shaun Marcum
    John Garland
    Mike Pelfrey
    Doug Fister
    Josh Beckett (DL)

    Which trade do I make, Or do I stand pat?

    Huge Lincecum Trade...Who wins?

    by Kyle May 31, 2010 9:44 AM
    Lou n Janelle Lou n Janelle May 31, 2010 9:47 AM Flag

    It's a pretty fair deal, although I think the Lincicum is safer bet than Jimenez. Jimenez is really good, but there is no way he keeps this pace up.
    Plus, I would make sure I got Prado if I was the guy getting Jimenez.

    I need to see more than just one good start against Oakland before I pick him up, but if you can afford to take a chance then do it now, because I'm sure there is someone in your league desperate for pitching help that will do it.

    Trade for Adrian Gonzalez: Is it Good???

    by A Yahoo! User May 31, 2010 9:26 AM
    Lou n Janelle Lou n Janelle May 31, 2010 9:37 AM Flag

    100% do it. Gonzalez can have a terrible season and still put up better numbers than Jones.

    That is a lop-sided deal in your favor

    Jason Bartlett - Pick up!?

    by Sean May 31, 2010 9:28 AM
    Lou n Janelle Lou n Janelle May 31, 2010 9:35 AM Flag

    That seems like a lateral move, as both guys are struggling, and Bartlett was just replaced at the top of the Rays line-up against RHP with Ben Zobrist. I believe he is now batting 9th against RHP.
    There may be other quality guys available. I would take a look at Ryan Theriot or Christian Guzman. Both are having better seasons than Ramirez and Bartlett. And both are eligiable at 2B as well.

    Should I make a move?

    by Pierce A Feb 20, 2010 6:26 PM
    Lou n Janelle Lou n Janelle Feb 20, 2010 6:30 PM Flag

    Se if you can trade Ariza for someone who shoots better percentages. I know he has solid numbers, but he is a percentage killer and he turns the ball over, plus his scoring may go down with the addition of Kevin Martin.
    But you seem to have a pretty good squad.

    what to do with devin harris??

    by Shake n Blaked Feb 20, 2010 6:21 PM
    Lou n Janelle Lou n Janelle Feb 20, 2010 6:26 PM Flag

    I had the same problem with Harris. He was too good to just drop, but he wasn't good enough to get anyone to trade for him. Finally I got a guy who had Paul and desperately needed a PG, but the best I could do is a straight up deal for Rashard Lewis.
    If you can get AK-47 for him I say do it before he gets hurt again or starts sucking again.
