Who to Start Message Board
I'm in a 12-team H2H league with 7x7 cats with batting (R, H, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP) and pitching (W, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP, K/BB). I currently sit 3rd and am looking to get a stud SS by making the following offers.
I get Troy Tulowitzki and give up Jacoby Ellsbury + Ryan Zimmerman
I get Hanley Ramirez and give up Ellsbury + Zobrist
I get Jose Reyes + Brandon Moss and give up Ellsbury + Zobrist
My team is C - Mesoraco, 1B - Miggy, 2B - Dozier, 3B - Ryan Zimmerman, Chris Coghlan, SS - Zobrist, OF - Ellsbury, Werth, Holt, Calhoun, Wil Myers SP - Kershaw, Strasburg, Cobb, Hammel, Mike Minor, RP - Kenley Jansen, Joakim Soria, Melancon, Cishek, Wade Davis, Darren O'Day
Are any of these offers worth making? Thanks!

Well in Offer 1, I was trying to buy low on Tulo with him on the DL. what do you think I could add to the first two offers to get who Tulo or Hanley? And in offer 3, would it be good if I get rid of Moss and I made it a 2-for-1 offer for Reyes?

I was trying to buy low on Tulo with him on the DL but as it seems I'm lowballing, what could I add to try to acquire him or Hanley? And do you think offering Ellsbury + Zobrist is enough for Reyes?
- Nandan Nandan Jul 26, 2014 4:09 PM Flag
I thought I could find OF off the FA that are getting hot to play but I guess you have a point. I could try and get the Reyes owner to throw in Gregory Polanco although I'm unsure he will do it. Do you really think Peralta Zobrist ROS?
And yeah if I can't acquire a stud SS, I might as well look for a 3B. I just thought solid SS are harder to find off FA.

Yeah I guess I was lowballing, I was just trying to buy low on Tulo haha. Do you see anyway I could acquire any of the 3 SS i mentioned?

Do you think Ellsbury + Zobrist is a worthy price to pay for the risk-reward of Hanley? Is Reyes + Greg Polanco for Ellsbury + Zobrist a good offer to make?
- Nandan Nandan Jul 26, 2014 4:40 PM Flag
Yeah that's a good point, I just want consistency but I guess with low level players like Zobrist and Peralta, might as well look for someone that can bump up a certain category. What do you think of Greg Polanco? I might try to acquire him with Reyes.
- Nandan Nandan Jul 26, 2014 4:42 PM Flag
Well correct me if I'm wrong but you think Cobb + Zobrist is a better offer than Ellsbury + Zobrist for Hanley? I do admit I tend to overrate Ellsbury but I strongly feel Ellsbury + Zobrist is a better offer
I'm in a 12-team H2H and a manager has told me he wants to trade Shin-Soo Choo. He's been a major bust but part of me feels like he could bounce back. I'm just unsure if I'm wasting time trading for him. He's told me he's considering sending me an offer.
1) I've been offered Kipnis + Choo for Jayson Werth + Chris Coghlan.
2) Also how would you rank these guys ROS: Choo, Coghlan, Holt, Calhoun.
He might give Choo for one of the other 3 players straight up.
If it helps, my batters are C - Mesoraco, 1B - Miggy, 2B - Dozier, 3B - Coghlan, Zimmerman, SS - Zobrist, OF - Ellsbury, Werth, Holt, Myers, Calhoun and hitting stats are R, H, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP. Thanks in advance!

So I'm guessing you don't think he's worth taking that first offer for. Or even trading 1 of the OF I mentioned before straight up.
- Nandan Nandan Jul 27, 2014 12:38 AM Flag
Do you think I'd be giving too much for Reyes if I offered Ellsbury + Zobrist? Or am I just overrating Ellsbury which I tend to do. And would it hurt my team overall more than help with the loss I suffer at OF?
- Nandan Nandan Jul 27, 2014 2:53 PM Flag
Alright, well if I don't accept his 2-for-2 offer, would you suggest I ask if he'd give Kipnis + Choo for Kalhoun + Coghlan? And I guess I may say I'm willing to give up Coghlan for Choo but that's it

I've been offered a deal but I'm unsure if I should take it. I'm in a 12-team H2H league and the batting cats are R, H, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP and pitching are W, SV, K, HLDS, ERA, WHIP, K/BB.
I've been offered Allen Craig + Homer Bailey and must give up Ben Zobrist + Jason Hammel.
If I were to take this deal, I'd need to add a SS so I'd probably add Jeter or Peralta and drop Brock Holt.
I like the buy-low chance on Bailey but I'd be really weak at SS. I was thinking of countering asking for Starlin Castro instead of Craig as I don't have faith in Craig and Castro would provide some value at SS.
So do you think I should just take what he offered or go with my counteroffer?

I agree with you with the exception of Bailey, Zobrist and Castro. They both have value imo...Bailey could be turning things around and Castro is okay at SS.

I'd go with Pence. I like him more and the cost of keeping him isn't enough to make me go with Hamilton. Can you please answer my quesiton about trading for Bailey? Thanks!

If you need help in steals and want to move Dozier, try trading him for an upgrade in steals. He is too good to drop imo and if you're worried about him being bad rest of year, you could try to trade him for some value. Can you please answer my question about trading for Bailey? Thanks!
