Prob in 2015 unless he is called up 2nd half of next yr. Still in A ball. Prob a little AA to finish yr. I don't even think he gets invite to spring training start of next yr. He's their golden nugget and won't rush. I have him in dynasty minor league team and wish he was playin now but only 19

I'm wondering same thing. Ball just seems to have more explosive plays potentially on that offense but bell will have more touches I think. Lacy may have lower touches also sharing it with franklin but plenty goal line touches.. but injury concerns. Def could play out to any rb advantage by end of training camp and even preseason... I would gamble ball, bell, then lacy on usage and injury risk alone now. Talent would be diff

I might lean toward harvin...
Harvin was not happy in min obviously and will be more focused in much better sea offense. The fact that he will be required to do little less will save on wear. 80% of touches BUT 30% more efficiency PLUS more games played.
Things working against cobb will be much more utilized run game this yr, probability he loses a lot of returns to focus on wr duties, and now recognition from defenses.. he surpised many last yr. He may be better longterm but fear a sophmore transition.
Close. Will def know more variables in another month like return duties and what not. Good luck

I'd hold. Harper projected 1st rder for next decade perhaps. Verlander is aging and lookin more human lately. He is great but harper so much younger and I personally value hitters more. I'd rather trade encarnacion for younger stud pitcher. Even a scherzer for EE would be better deal perhaps but a harvey would awesome score. I would at least wait till harper comes back and wait to sell high for kershaw or yu when he starts mashing. Might take a month or next yr but patience is virtue in dynasty. Kershaw or yu will help you more the next 7yrs than unloading now for verlander and gaining a little more help to win this yr. Maybe I'm more bullish on harper than most though

Just wait couple weeks. Everyone goes through highs and lows. Might even get injured (god forbid.. he is great to watch). Just sayin you could end up giving twice as much now as a month or two down rd.. dynasty so you can wait. Not gonna gain 6yrs in age over night. Heyward had similar start to his career and look at him now. He def has potential to be elite BUT not 1st rder. Cutch for puig is too much now. Just my outlook

Charles, Johnson, and RG3. Best 3 guys period. if you take either of those 1st rders.. you lose your 2nd overall in 1st rd right? and the one you let go gets taken probably before your 2nd rd pick.. I wouldn't risk it.

I think I like buchholz with new manager (old Pitching coach for sox when they had strong pitching few yrs ago). buccholtz has safer floor while Ryu could falter in 2nd half but has higher ceiling
- wildchild wildchild Apr 8, 2013 10:02 PM Flag
I might take the trade. Zimmerman is pretty locked into his role and hasn't falterd last couple seasons. If Soriano has rough stretch... WAS has plenty of guys to takeover closer role (Storen, Clippard...)
- wildchild wildchild Apr 8, 2013 9:58 PM Flag
you should be able to get more now... as fowler is a sell high. Plus Garza's injury history now is concerning. Ordinarily though (and in a month) they are equal value IMO..... although Fowler always could take a step forward. But that is just speculating.
My Lawrie and Chapman for his Middlebrooks and j Zimmerman? Punt saves as we also have holds (will use strong setup guys or stream). Zimmerman only 1yr older and not sure if lawrie's power really ever hits near 30HR or 100RBI. Need Power #s for roster and I'm a sox fan so I could be biased. That is why i'm askin

I would go with arenado. Thin COL air plus he has better chance of staying at 3B... See Castellanos moving to OF maybe while Miggy and Fielder man the corners for yrs
- wildchild wildchild Apr 8, 2013 8:32 PM Flag
Anybody think I should do it? Given Hamilton's injury issues and age creeping up... also got his contract to run rest of career so the hunger to perform for better $ isn't there.
- wildchild wildchild Apr 8, 2013 3:56 PM Flag
I would drop bradley and hope Fernandez has another good game.. then Trade! He pitched against a horrible team 1st time up and is on a terrible team (not many Ws)
?? 16t Dynasty. OF would be left with A Craig, Agon, C Gomez, J Reddick, Joyce
But Pitching would be great with Wainwright, Peavy, Scherzer, Lynn, Estrada, Garza, JJ, H Bailey, Griffin (remember - 16t. lol)

I would def drop for Hosmer. He hit sophomore slump like many do but he should be solid this yr on somewhat strong Royals squad (offensively at least. hahaha). Belt is not a lock for anything. I would then try to sell high on one of your 1B, even Freeman if you are getting a good enough deal. Early in season so I try to load roster with most valuable/safestfloor+ceiling type guys and then trade on high note. Prob even do a freeman for an elite 2B/SS.SP/OF depending on your roster as Freeman is killing it. Pujols may be better trade offering though as he is having foot issues already??
- wildchild wildchild Apr 6, 2013 9:13 AM Flag
plenty of 1B guys out there... Just shop the waiver until you get a breakout guy - it happens every yr. I got Allen Craig in 13th rd of 16t dynasty last yr.
Try Yonder (fences in), Smoak (team a little better, fences in I believe), Moreland (solid Minor #s and looked good past couple yrs when given chance), Morrison (very hyped prospect has 'chance' to rebound).... prob 15 guys out there if you are in 12t or smaller.
- wildchild wildchild Apr 6, 2013 8:48 AM Flag
Longterm I would go Derrick Williams. But Butler may get more time with ball in his hands next yr so it would be close next couple yrs.
I play in a steal league where winner gets to swap one unprotected player with loser (same position).
16t h2h with hits/blks/fw. I'm in 2nd place and we keep 6 end of season
I can steal j stall, l couture, n backstrom, pietrangelo, yandle, OEL, pacioretty, gagner, del zotto, crawford, backstrom -minn
I can swap m johansson, goc, zajac, hamonic, smid, brodeuer, varlamov, dubnyk.
My def gets me hits/blks... but my gut tells me the easy upgrade is in def. Crawford goalie upgrade doesnt seem so interesting lately. The offensive upgrade is so tempting.
