Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

I don't know what these guys below are smoking but Prince Fielder is much better. Slow April but lets not get crazy. Guy has been one of the safest players in MLB over last 10 years! Still just 31 and in his prime too. Don't panic. Any person that knows what they're talking would take Fielder over Peralta. When all is said and done, Fielder should be good for .290+/.365+ with 75+ R, 20-30 HR and 90+ RBI. His ceiling is top 25 and his floor is borderline top 60.
In an 11 team roto keeper league with HR, RBI, R, SB, AVG and OBP as offensive stats and W, K, SV, ERA, WHIP and OBPA as pitching stats.
My OF is pretty stacked. I have Bryce Harper (Keeper), Mookie Betts (K), Dexter Fowler, Odubel Herrera, Brock Holt (who plays SS for me but is OF eligible) and Ben Revere. My staff is pretty nasty as well with Syndergaard, Smyly, Carlos Martinez, Aaron Nola, Jake Odorizzi and Jose Berrios. Also have David Robertson, Joe Smith and Rosenthal as closers and Seung Hawn Oh, Kelvin Herrera and Hunter Stickland as my ratio/K per 9 helping mid relievers.
The question is should I trade Ben Revere for Yu Darvish? Ben Revere will be competing for starts with V-Mart and Odubel Herrera at my UTL spots. Odubel has been really good with a 20.2% walk rate so I could probably afford to let Revere go. Not sure what to do tho. Don't really have a major need in this trade but Darvish could be a monster if he can come back and pick up where he left off before his injury. Thanks for the help.

Are u nuts? Does the word "dynasty" really change things that much? The goal is still to win a championship. Max Scherzer is by far the best pitcher in this deal. Yes Carrasco is a solid pitcher according to analytics and Maeda has been really solid thru 5 starts but Max Scherzer is a borderline top 10 player overall.
Don't get too carried away with the word DYNASTY! It's fantasy baseball and u want to win championships. Alex Reyes projects to be a decent flamethrower with control issues. Lets not get crazy.
11 team roto keeper league with R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG and OBP as offensive stats and W, K, SV, ERA, OBPA and WHIP as pitching stats. Which side would u prefer?
TEAM A GETS- SS Xander Bogaerts
TEAM B GETS- OF Dexter Fowler and SS Brandon Crawford
Team A doesn't really have any solid options at SS with only Brock Holt and Brandon Crawford and Team B has Lindor and Xander Bogaerts but doesn't really have a great OF. Team B has just Yoenis Cespedes, Randall Grichuk, Melvin Upton and Mark Trumbo. Thanks for input.
In an 11 team roto keeper league with HR, RBI, R, SB, AVG and OBP as offensive stats and W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP and OBPA as pitching stats. We keep 5. As of right now I'm in first place by 17 points. Squad is looking pretty nasty even tho I lost Kyle Schwarber who was my 5th keeper. I was offered a pretty solid deal today and thought I'd see what u guys thought. Here it is.
I GET- SS Corey Seager and 1B Joey Votto
I GIVE UP- SP Carlos Martinez, Mid reliever Seung Hwan Oh, 1B Prince Fielder and SS Brandon Crawford
The guy's staff is a wreck. Really don't want to let Seung Hwan Oh because his K/9 has been absolutely absurd so far and batters are only making contact on 52% of pitches that are swung at with him. Having middle relievers like that in leagues with inning cap is HUGE. With that being said tho, I love Corey Seager and think he can be a keeper for me for a long time. Letting Martinez and Hwan Oh go for an upgrade at SS and 1B is pretty legit. What do u guys think??? Appreciate the input!

Are u taking into consideration how shallow SS is? Corey Seager is an elite elite prospect at the shallowest of positions. I don't know if I'm going to do it but I can't believe how everyone thinks its so insane.
About "teams that give up best player always lose trade" comment. Last year I gave up Jose Abreu for David Robertson, Andrew Miller and Ben Revere. Looks awful on surface in keeper league but at the time I was in 2nd place and those points I picked up in saves and SB were what put me over the top to win it all. Person who wins championship wins trade! Not person who gives up best player.

Corey Seager would lock down my SS position for the next decade and I think his HR/SB total won't be that much worse than Mookie. Yes Mookie will likely have 20+ more runs but Seager is going to be an elite guy for a long time. Plus as of now, my OF is stacked with Bryce Harper/Alex Gordon/Mookie/Dexter Fowler/Ben Revere/Jay Bruce and my SS position is Brock Holt. I know Mookie is a stud but at some point this year, I think Seager will be seen as an untouchable asset in my league. Just think now would be the time! I had an opportunity to trade Chapman for Correa in early June last year and declined it. That looked ridiculous at the time! Now I'm kicking myself.
I'm in a 11 team roto keeper league with HR, RBI, SB, R, AVG and obp as offensive stats and W, SV, K, ERA, OBPA and WHIP as pitching stats. I was offered....
I GET- 1B Anthony Rizzo and 1B/3B Justin Turner
I GIVE UP- 3B Josh Donaldson and 1B Carlos Santana
I already have Princo Fielder at 1rst base but I do this this deal makes my team better. I think Rizzo is going to be a beast for a long time in that Cubs lineup. Thanks for the input!!
