Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
7x7 roto with OPS, XBH, HLD and QS to standard cats. 9 keepers. Live draft where we try to agree on a time most or all can make it. team is in 13th and manager can no longer be active.
I need a competitive manager, this league is very strong and I've tried to screen out those weaker managers. This team is below average, but not terrible. tantra1232003 at yahoo if interested. I commish this league and another one and have been a commish going on 7 years now.

A player will gain eligibility at a new position after five starts at that position, or 10 total appearances at that position. cuddyer has two?

it's probably a little light, davis tome is more of what he was in 2012, .255 with 30-35hr's. Goldschmidt provides better overall production. If it was a one year league and you needed pitching i'd consider it more but try to extract more.

it's a bad trade, obviously. Gallardo doesn't have a lot left in the tank, ventura is now questionable/hurt and morneau carries ALOT of risk that he will continue to play this way, unlike Goldschmidt who is basically as risk free as they come ROS.

what upside? carpenter is a nice .290 hitter and will score runs. he has no speed or power. It's Kipnis by a mile, he's a 15/25 hitter when healthy with upside...

nobody knows, he was terrible last year and really for a few months before that in late 2012 too. he is walking more this year but the ABs are so small...he'lll eeither make your team or break it. If it was costing me someone below say 120 to 140 ranking i'd roll the dice.
20 team roto, 7x7 with XBH, OPS, HLD, QS. 9 player keeper league, it is a very competitive league so need an experienced manager. Team is below average, but not terrible. Manager quitting because he's in over his head and complaining about trades. For anyone who enjoys a deeper roto league this will give you a fair shake as I've been a commish for many years in two leagues. e-mail tantra1232003 at yahoo.

Machado is 21, and BB/K profile looks better than last year and also already hit 3hr. Dont underestimate this guy. Polanco should be pretty good too. I'd want a better player than jones honestly for those three, like a Stanton or something else. I wouldn't trade those for Kershaw. trade 4 you mentioned below isn't bad for a win now.

He's striking out 27% of the time and has made 10 errors in 50 games. Probably he can hit now in the big leagues, but there are still a few things for him to work on and the cubs aren't in any rush to promote him and start the clock.

NYY wouldn't happen, they don't have the prospects. Boston has prospects but in division seems unlikely. Tor unlikely as do not have impact prospects anymore and in division. LAD, Cards most likely, Braves and PIT next. Don't count out A's.

bullpens are pretty volatile year to year, this is the least of their worries. They really need more SP that is ready or near ready.
