General Message Board
I was in a league that had 40IP as a pre-draft setting. After the draft, the commissioner changed it to 30IP. When I posted on the board it shouldn't be changes post draft, he sent profane and lewd emails/posts to me, said it was going to be his way, and he kicked me out of the league. It was an 18 team league and I had a GREAT team as well.

i wouldn't trade mjd for anyone, and to throw turner into that???? they're asking for too much for what they are offering. Wayne is ok, but he will not be in the top five receivers this year. johnson, marshall, welker, white and most likely one of the smith's will outperform wayne. especially in ppr leagues. scoring system has a lot to do with all trades. mjd is a beast in all formats, all leagues.

your scoring system is important. gore will have more value than any of these other players. hightower's a joke as well as edwards. edwards is at best the third option on a run first team. go figure..........it appears that gore was your first pick. do you want to trade away your first pick? if so, why did you draft him first?

i know you think williams is going to benefit from brown's injury, but i think williams is clearly the best player in the deal. driver's point production is not far off of v jax, so that's a push. portis is done. you got robbed. if this is a ppr league, you got fleeced before the robbery.

what league did you draft in where you get four #1 picks, williams, fitzgerald, brady and jackson. let me in that league next year and i'll clean up.

i've been involved with fantasy football since 1986. go figure. would like to see what your offer is. how do i make up for your keepers, at the end or the beginning of the draft?
scoring system, etc.

were there seven dead people in this league??
williams fitzgerald slaton and rodgers??? you had to me number 8 and double up on williams and fitzgerald first, and the slaton and rodgers.
that's why 8 team leagues suck. you need to go 12 or 14. then you will find out how good at drafting you are.

the last response pretends the categories are more important that the two players involved, and in most cases, that is true. however, when you are factor catchers into any trade, the position trumps the stats. to get amy meaningful statistics from the catcher's position is incredibly difficult if you don't have a quality catcher in the first 4 rounds. therefore, i believe the advice that supports soto is sound and valid regardless of scoring categories.

kelly johnson has not lived up to the hype and is playing on a team that is coming apart at the seams. navarro is a soft hitting catcher not worth much, will he be your starter? uggla is top shelf and bangs the ball. strikes out alot, but that might not hurt you depending on your scoring categories. sonnastine is a nice young pitcher, but you can pick up stats like that from the fa wire or by drafting a promising young pitcher this year. i would not do this. uggla's 2B tag makes him a top 3 producer at his position. remember, he missed at least a month last year.

i wouldn't do mccann and danks for ianetta and joba. danks will be close to joba with exception of wins if joba is in the rotation. mccann is better than ianetta and it will be hard to make up anything you lose at catcher because there are not enough good catchers to make up for a minimal loss. cano will kill you in K's and on base %. i don't like him. drew is a below average player. i haven't been in a league like yours, but drew will drive you crazy as you wait for him to meet his potential and he will continually fall short.

you ask a rhetorical question. you inquire regarding a 3rd round pick and then in the next question, you mention 'best of all time'. i'm a reds fan, and i wouldn't rush to say that bruce will be an all-time great. he'll have a hard time being an all-time great for the reds.

people will probably say no to this because of johan's past, not because of his performance this year.
i would steer clear of fielder. i've never really liked him. youk is not bad, the add on is only valuable if you improve a weakness. youk is on a tear now, but he is a mediocre player, especially in 5x5 leagues. in head to head, he is rarely a contributor to a victory. i have him on two of my teams.
if you're going to give guillen, make sure you have MI depth and get a usable piece back.

whoever approved the trade you mention is a fool. regardless of your ranking, beltran, nady and reynolds don't equate to utley and berkman or utley and ramirez let alone an additional player of that quality. either you are the commissioner, or you have a fool as a commissioner. these leagues can't prevent two buddies teaming up and making horse crap trades. my guess is the fantasy gods are seeking their vengence on you for actually thinking that the trade was somehow fair and balanced. you should finish in the dungeon if not lower.

cueto, he doesn't have to face the big al lineups or a dh. i know he's a rook, but hughes doesn't outweigh him substantially in experience.
hughes stands to win several more games by the end of the year due to the yanks lineup. hughes has looked vulnerable and human. i would stick with cueto because you'll look like a guru at the end of the season. if this decision is going to make or break your season, be careful. if these players are just a compliment to your team, keep cueto.

i don't understand why you would even entertain this trade unless you believe bedard will be affected by his injury for the rest of the season.
if you believe bedard will be healthy (there is no reason not to believe he will finish the season after early season precautions), there is no reason for the trade. you are swapping comparable pitchers. i don't understand swapping for the sake of trading. how does getting verlander for bedard, or vice versa substantially improve your team?
i'm a bedard fan. i like verlander. i believe bedard is the better of the two, and when you factor in his k's, he is a top shelf pitcher. verlander has a lot of work to do to break into the top 15 pitchers by the end of the season. i do believe bedard will be there.

where would you play gordon?? would you bump howard? i know howard is struggling, but gordon has a good average with mediocre runs scored. remember, he plays for KC. i have both gordon and butler in a league and when KC gets shut down, it hurts.
would you bump matsui who provides many more runs in the yankee machine but a little lower average? matsui will blow gordon away in rbi. you aren't going to bench lee for gordon. ankiel, swisher and butler is not the greatest outfield, but gordon doesn't substantially out perform any of those three. as a matter of fact, he will not out homer any of your current outfielders, which also produces rs and rbi's.
on the other hand, if your league counts K's or K's/9 (innings pitched), cueto's a charm. in the head to head league, you can suck on a bad era to win two other categories. don't look for too many wins from cueto due to the reds now being the 'little' red machine.
i don't see where you gain in this trade. i thought the reason for a trade was to make your team better. does that happen here? i would almost guarantee that you were offered this trade as opposed to you looking for gordon.

do you need pitching? harang is a stud that will not win many games because he's with the reds. i'm a harang and reds fan. i have him on my roster. i love the guy, but wins will be sparse.
oswalt has more value in the respect he might be traded to a contending team. he really hasn't pitched all that well this year.
beltran is well rounded and should finish in the top 50 offensive players. ichiro (i love him in real life) is a punch n judy player. if you need RS and BAvg., don't let go of him. If you need pitching and/or power, he's a good value to trade.
asking for advice on trades is difficult without knowing the scoring system, where you are in the rankings, and how your team in constructed. if you have needs, beltran and ichiro have good trade value. if you weaken your team to make this trade, or the other team receives a greater advantage, you might want to pass on the offer.
remember, trades should benefit both teams so they don't disrupt the competitive balance in the league.
