    Pederson for Hammel

    mmm, I think Pederson can do better and steal more bases, but hammel has been pretty good as well. You could ask for king felix, price, bumgarner, Harvey, arrieta, cueto if you like any of them better but it's not a bad deal.

    Please help me with this trade proposal!

    it's not a terrible trade, but I think you can sell archer better. listen, they guy's pitching to a 2.46 xFIP with 10.75K/9 and a good bullpen behind him. Even if he regresses a little bit, he may be what, 2.75 ERA? If we were drafting today i'm sure he would be strongly considered in rd 3 rd 4 at the latest. Puig is good and should bat .300, so it's not a terrible deal but I would aim higher. Maybe try to package archer and somebody else for Stanton?

    I think he's worth a short term pick up. I think the rockies play him more here leading up to the 7/31 trade deadline. They obviously don't like him at C whether it's attitude or he tries hard but just can't, but I can't imagine they want to pay him next year what would probably amount to 3.5mil at least, so he'll be on showcase.

    probably not, JAH makes some good points, unless you are really hurting for an OF, but even then I'd look for something better.

    Is it time to give up on Rendon yet?

    well, in a one year league with a shallow bench I know it's hard to hold him. Best guess out a month? But yeah, I feel your pain.

    I'd roll with Franco and Donaldson, he'll come out of it soon.

    Dickerson for Buxton?

    probably. pujols and longoria have planar fasciitis. it's basically extremely painful, but not something that is career threatening. it would be best if it just tore which I believe is what pujols' did and then I believe with surgery it's over. check it out.

    not really, it's not a terrible deal if you need a 2b and have another good 1b to replace freeman, but I'd ask for either a pretty good SP or good RP instead of mauer who is basically worthless in 12 team leagues.

    well, I guess in an NL only league there is some thought, but that's about it and I'd be surprised if he does anything great think 4.00ERA / 1.30 WHIP. Course, he will get the Phils a few times so there's that...

    I would buy him, certainly. At a slight discount hopefully...

    Yeah, you minus well. what I think others may have forgotten is trades. It is very possible he gets dealt at the waiver deadline and gets PT that way? If he doesn't get traded, he's a drop though

    Not sure I understand how long you keep them (5 years? forever) but it's a fair deal. if I owned Correa and Bryant though i'd ask you to throw in a SP I liked too, a higher one.

    Hector Olivera

    Standard Operating procedure is this. yahoo adds a lot of minors players every year to the database in the beginning of the year, mostly top or upper level prospects but a good amount. however, some always slip through the cracks, and if they are not added at the beginning of the year, then they will be added after they are called up and go on waivers. This happened with HOU SP Velasquez. So, when Olivera gets called up, he'll get added to database, waivers will decide who owns him.

    big time dynasty league trade!

    I thought I posted....well, in a nutshell I think machado has shown a lot this year with the power, and given his upside at AVG vs. Bryant and premium position I lean strongy towards Team B

    Kris Bryant

    by Matt Jun 17, 2015 5:08 PM
    Slappytheclown Slappytheclown Jun 17, 2015 5:18 PM Flag

    Bryant ROS .260/17. A lot of his future value depends on A) can he cut down on K's and b) can he become a more complete hitter as he's a dead pull hitter on the ground now which will lead to a lot of shifts and possible low avg. Machado is a little bit of a pull hitter but K's less and should be able to hit .280 to .285. Also, distance on flyballs is about the same for both, at 285ft which is good, not great. I think you may be underestimating machado here and overestimating Bryant, especially given position. Of course, it's always possible that Bryant turns into Stanton type hitter as well...but I like machado side here.

    I wouldn't sweat harper for Rendon, Rendon in his own right once he gets going will be really good. I don't see anything wrong with this deal. don't know if there is a clear 'winner' but it's fair.

    Franco for Gordon

    by Kees Jun 16, 2015 11:39 PM
    Slappytheclown Slappytheclown Jun 17, 2015 5:04 PM Flag

    well, first I believe that .243 average you are citing is for his MLB career, because the last few seasons in the minors he hit .355, .257, .339, .299 and .280. Sometimes it's too good to be true (.355) sometimes it's too bad to be true (.257) but overall a solid record.

    Second, it's simple math. K rates tends to stabilize quickly, so a 14.5% K rate is very exciting. Assume 100ABs. He K's 15 of them. He hits 5HR. He walks 5 (not a big walk guy), that leaves 75ABs where he puts the ball in play. League average BABIP is about .300, so that's about 22#$%$ we'll round it up to 23. Add in the 5HRs, that's 28 hits in 95 official ABs for a .295 average. Very exciting indeed.

    I'd keep Franco. Very impressive his 14.5% K rate, which means he could bat .300 and with some power of 20-30HRs that's very helpful for years. Gordon is riding a high right now, but speed ages quicker than power. Unless you are competing for just this year and need the SB I wouldn't do it.
