Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
12-team H2H league with 6-teams in playoffs. Currently 4th. Batting cats are R, H, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP. Got offered Castellanos for Mazara. Here are my bats.
C - Cervelli, 1B - Big Papi, 2B - Kipnis, 3B - Dan Murphy, SS - Correa, OF - Blackmon, Yelich, Mazara, Melvin Upton
So given these hitters, would you make the trade? I feel like it'd be great since I find OF to be more replaceable and giving me a corner infielder gives me flexibility to shop Papi or Murphy for solid pitching or upgrades elsewhere while they're value is high. On the flipside, if Mazara is a breakout star I could be kicking myself for trading him...especially if Castellanos drops off.

I got offered Hosmer + Rosenthal for Ortiz + Andrew Miller. I don't like the idea of it because of how reliable Miller is....what do you think? Can I do better and do you think we can strike a deal?

I'm in 5th place in 12-team H2H standard league (6-team playoffs) with 7x7 cats. Batting cats (R, H, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP) and pitching cats (W, SV, K, HLDS, ERA, WHIP, K/BB). Looking for a closer as I only have one closer right now. Here are following trades I can make.
I get Hosmer + Wade Davis and give Big Papi + Fernando Salas
I get Votto + Kenley Jansen and give Big Papi + David Phelps
C - Cervelli, 1B - Big Papi, 2B - Kipnis, 3B - Dan Murphy, SS - Correa, OF - Blackmon, Yelich, Mazara, Melvin Upton, SP - David Price, Keuchel, Scherzer, Stroman, Chatwood, Eickhoff, RP - Andrew Miller, Luke Gregerson, Fernando Salas, Brad Brach, David Phelps
So given this team, what do you think of these trades? Good or am I asking for too much?
Solid squad imo but saves could be a concern. SP is also a position that you're ok in but could improve. Maybe try trading someone like Cruz for a dependable starter + top-tier closer?
I could pick up Panik or move Murphy to 2B and Valencia to 3B. If you wouldn't do Stroman for Kemp, would you do Stroman + Yelich for Braun or Keuchel + Kipnis for Bautista? I will look at your post.
12-team H2H standard league with 7x7 cats. Batting cats (R, H, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP) and pitching cats (W, SV, K, HLDS, ERA, WHIP, K/BB). Trying to get an opinion on how good this team is. A couple of things to note, yahoo's draft layout gave us trouble and wifi kept cutting out so I autodrafted Valencia early (as I had him in my prerank). Pitching is key in this league as most teams that wins or are competitive have strong pitching (lower weekly add/drops cut the effects of streaming).
C - Cervelli, 1B - Big Papi, Texeira, 2B - Kipnis, 3B - Dan Murphy, SS - Correa, OF - Blackmon, Yelich, Danny Valencia, SP - David Price, Keuchel, Waino, Stroman, Wei-Yin Chen, Eickhoff, RP - Wade Davis, Andrew Miller, Tolleson, Luke Gregerson, Soria
So is this team a title contender? And if not, what are my strengths and weaknesses? (Consider trading strengths to address weaknesses)
