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)

Do you want me to give you League ID and pass? My bad, unsure what you need to get in. Used to just sending people emails

My league may/may not be a 12 team league (at least 10) and we won't have our draft tonight but we are actively seeking members. Would you be interested?
