Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
What would it take to get him? Im in an 11 team, 5 player keeper league. Here are my keepers:
I also have Madison Bumgarner and Chris sale.
My target will likely keep: Strasburg, McCutch, Zobrist, Votto, and Gio.
Would Upton be enough? Hoping to do this pre-draft.
I have Longo, and would be excited if someone offered me Cutch (even if I had to give up a 3d round). I think Longo is becoming a little too injury prone. Didnt he have surgery on his hammy in November?
Hello - Im in a 11 team points league where we keep 5. As deep as the position seems to be, I have not had a 1st base keeper in a number of years. This year my keepers are Trout, Cargo, Longo, Justin Upton and Buster Posey. I would like to draft "the next big thing" in first basemen.
Most of the usual suspects will be kept (Votto, Pujols, Prince, etc). I think Goldy, Rizzo, and Ike will be available in the first or second round after we take keepers out of the equation. Who do you think will be the next really good offensive 1Ber? Also, when should I target them? Im guessing I need a pitcher with my first pick (back end of the first round).
Its a fair trade. I love Votto (But also like Harper in Dynasty formats). This may sound - honestly, I'd consider trading Hamilton, then slide Bautista into your UTIL. You've put together a nice team for a 10 team league. I have to ask, are have you won multiple championships with this squad?
11 team points league. I must keep 5 of these, unlimited number of years to keep: Trout, Cargo, Longoria, Posey, Justin Upton, Alan Craig, Mad Bum, Chris Sale, Aroldis and Kimbrel.
Pujols, Pedrio and Ellsbury. Beltran and Ramirez may have better years than Ellsbury; however, Ellsbury is not far removed from a 30 hr 50 sb season (two years ago?). Give me that potential.
Im in an 11 team points league. We keep five players. Who are my five (please). I finished in second this year.
1B: Allen Craig
3B: Evan Longoria
LF: Mike Trout
CF: Carlos Gonzalez
RF: Justin Upton
SP: Madison Bumgarner
SP: Chris Sale
RP: Craig Kimbrel
RP: Aroldis Chapman
Hi. As the season winds down, I like to think about which players I will keep for 2013. We keep five (5) for as long as we want. Currently in first in an 11-team points league.
My for sure keepers:
I need three more from:
Madison Bumgarner (Top 10 SP in my league)
Chris Sale (Top 10 SP in my league)
Justin Upton (Bounce back in 2013?)
Buster Posey (Top 30 Batter in my league and at a thin position)
Allen Craig (Lots of position eligibility and a high per game point avg)
I was leaning towards keeping Bumgarner and Sale or Bumgarner and Justin Upton.
Im a waiver wire horder, and i would burn the #1ww on him. I actually draftedhim then put him on the DL. There is not much coming down the pike in terms of ww pick ups. I like a couple of pitchers on the farm in AZ, but you can pick them up as FAs right now.
I guess the only drawback would be if a dumba$$ owner in your league dropped a valuable player. But you cant bank on that. Go get craig. . .
Target one of his outfielders too, but dont go too nuts, Longo is the best keepet in that group. Also it is unclear how effective Wright will be given his 'rib' injury.
My no-brainers are
I need help with two of last three-
Strasburg (innings limited)
Lawrie (could be realy good but limited time last year, also came back to earth in Sept! Also have Longo so he would be utility)
Kimbrelll (best closer, lots of ks but hes a closer!)
Hosmer (seems like i can get same/similar stats from ike davis or frddie freeman much later)
please help pick two
