Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

ridiculous team but you prob already know it. hahaha. should cruise for a few yrs at least. I would try to get a backup SS for the future. Preferably as a prospect maybe. Tulo you have to worry about injury, his frustration about Col losing (possibly being dealt - by management or him demanding it), and/or a possible switch at position - I read before season it might be worth moving him to less demanding position (1B?) to avoid injury as they have several decent option for SS in minors. Just rumors BUT all together worth getting a backup plan in the works. Again I might go for a prospect as this yrs active SS crop are total #$%$ shoot going forward it seems. Maybe package a Closer and a another lower SP for a addison russel type if possible.

I would def make deal seeing how you only keep 5 keepers. If dynasty it would be a little harder. Then I would shop around for a rental 2B till next yr (draft). Alcantara has showed alot of promise and could stick around as I think the cubs may play him all over field. I may try to flip donaldson for keeper worthy 2B/SS (package rollins or escobar maybe) or pitcher

I would lean on Gallo side but it is close. ANYTHING can happen with prospects. But, Gallo could be special in Tex! only 20 right now I believe and could lead minors in HRs 2 yrs in a row. He could only end up a .240-#$%$ but should come through with 30+ HRs @ 3B position. I think his floor could be what Pedro Alvarez has been doing. Pitchers are so deep every yr and not confident Cecchini ever develops more than 10HR power which does not play at all for a 3B. Plus he has alot of competition throughout system and plays for a team who has little patience.

depends on who you would be dropping and how big benches are. Are you in contention this yr? He is def appealing but if you were hovering around the playoff cutoff and currently were confident in the players you already had who are producing better than Choo... I would hold steady. He is no spring chicken and OF is very deep in 'ordinary' 10 team league - not sure how many OF you can start.

If you are intrigued by Heaney then I might not drop anybody. Locke (very low Ks) or Stroman (tough division, do teams figure him out?) are iffy for diff reasons but just seem to have higher ceilings than McHugh and HOU. If Rubby falters than def him. He is just a filler and Buccholtz has been pitching better. Unless Peavy gets traded to STL. Then Rubby could have real sneaky value.

I Don't know how your scoring is setup up exactly... some are setup up really weird. Just to get a feeling, I would look up last yr pts differential between the top 6-11 QBs (which may be available to you - be surprised how many managers do not pay attention to league setups or are just stubborn and pick RB) to the rest of pack. Then compare to the pt differential from top 2 WRs or top 2 RB to rest of guys. Take into consideration bounceback campaigns this yr and injury's last yr also when analyzing - Jay cutler may not appear to be top 24 QBish last yr but will be this yr.
Doesn't matter so much how they score as a group but the difference in pts between elite to the rest. (keeping in mind it is a 2 qb league so def wanna focus on filling those slots obviously - we are just talking about your 1st or 2nd rd pick which you might wanna grab an elite WR/RB)
50pts difference between the QB available to you at #11 to the next 15-20 QBs
(QB pt range 500-450)
90 pts difference between the top RB/WR available to you vs next 20
(RB pt range 300-210, WR pt range 280-190)
Even if QBs score more as a group I would def grab an elite RB or WR if the gap is greater. Maybe even at my 1st pick if Mccoy/charles still avail. Def get a QB in my top 2 of 3 picks though.

I Like team B only if they have surplus in Pitching and need help in OF bigtime. Also hanley's long list of injuries (does he stay at SS? is he staying with LAD?) concerns me. Braun still super solid and myers can crush.
- wildchild wildchild Jun 29, 2014 2:19 PM Flag
yeah... tough call. I have faith in kazmir keeping it up in OAK (they work miracles with pitching) more so than beckett or arrieta (does he stay in CHI?) BUT that is flip of coin. I would gamble with walker over beckett as beckett always has injury issues.

I wouldn't do it. Agon isn't that old yet - still 5 more yrs. Tanaka could be top 5-10 SP for many yrs. Dickerson has "chance" to be as valuable as Hosmer or andrus himself.

I Would Do it... but just seems givin Kipnis' funk... you might be able to do a very small upgrade somewhere else.
- wildchild wildchild Jun 28, 2014 4:13 PM Flag
Of those you mentioned.. I might go D Peralta as his minor numbers are ridiculous!! But Peralta and T Colvin are headed to bench roles possibly as teams get healthy. Think Peralta has a little more time to contribute. Cron and Betts are not avail I'm guessing
- wildchild wildchild Jun 28, 2014 4:08 PM Flag
I would do your deal if you have another great dynasty 3B option (think arenado will be a top 7ish 3B going foward with possiblity of getting better even). Otherwise I would do Offer 3. You may not need to even go ofter Springer really as OF pop up throughout yr - JD martinez, C Dickerson, K Calhoun..... even danny santana was gettin it done
- wildchild wildchild Jun 28, 2014 4:04 PM Flag
I would take a shot at Mookie as others should still be there if he doesn't pan out. BUT he does have great potential on solid squad. He will give you SS and OF elig once he starts playing
- wildchild wildchild Jun 28, 2014 4:00 PM Flag
I agree.. Howie always falls off so rendon at 2B would def help. Just wondering if Frazier is capable 25HR .280 ave guy going foward as it is dynasty but he does have some pedigree and decent minor numbers - just not as good as Bruce
- wildchild wildchild Jun 28, 2014 3:57 PM Flag
depends how solid you are at 3B too as bogaerts can cover that. If you need help in OF (which betts will prob become elig in) mookie becomes interesting. Think both have same value rest of yr IF betts can get playing time but that is not guarantee. Longterm I still like Bogaerts much better for the power and potential middle of lineup future.
My 16Team H2H Dynasty Lineup
OF Gomez, Bruce, Cespedes
Util C Dickerson, JD Martinez
Bench Calhoun, B Butler, Solarte (was backup 3B.. gonna prob drop but not much avail in FA)
DL D Santana, Middlebrooks (prob droppable but have the extra DL spot for now.
Have surplus of OF and not sure if Rendon sticks at 3B longterm but I hear Zimmerman might be viewed as OF going forward with his shoulder issues??
I Give Bruce and Tillman for Frazier and Arrieta. Seems fair
- wildchild wildchild Jun 21, 2014 10:04 AM Flag
I would prob do that but I'm a big risk taker. You are getting damaged goods in both and never guarantees they come back the same. But surgeries and healthcare to athletes have been encouraging in recent decades. Jose has longer track record and was still killin it after teams already had film to watch. We do not know how tanaka will fair - esp in harder league and division. Trumbo is great piece to have, esp in 20 team league!
haha. 12team h2H. Need 4 Keepers this yr. Will be slotted in 1st 4 rds.
1 RB, 1 WR, 1 QB, 1 extra (any position). My potential Keepers = **
Russel Wilson - ceiling too low I think but very safe
- wildchild wildchild Jun 15, 2014 12:05 PM Flag
Everybody goes through ups and downs... Butler, Bruce, Wright, Donaldson.... I'm giving him a little longer as he isn't striking out alot and plays for solid team in great park. Once he starts getting games off frequently then I'll worry
