Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

No I wouldn't. Donaldson right now is what you hope Bryant will eventually become, plus he is in a better offense.
I currently have Josh Donaldson as my 3b but word on the street says Kris Bryant might be in the big leagues this year. I have a crush on the cubbies, also own Anthony Rizzo and it's mouth watering to be able to own both Rizzo and Bryant. I just traded for Xander Bogearts and Kolton Wong so my team so far is this.
C Evan Gattis
1B Paul Goldschmidt- traded for votto/cargo
2B Kolton Wong-traded for Kipnis
3B Josh Donaldson-traded Longoria
Ss Xander Bogaerts-traded Ian Desmond
1b/3b Jose Abreu-traded Prince Fielder
Ss/2b Josh Harrison-traded Dee Gordon
Of Jay Bruce
Of mark Trumbo
Of Jason Heyward
Of George Springer
Of corey Dickerson-traded votto/cargo
Utility Anthony Rizzo-traded Nelson Cruz and yu darvish
Corey Kluber-traded Chris Davis
Jake arrieta-traded Nelson Cruz/yu darvish
Kanley Janson-traded justin Verlander
This is my team, still have to draft 7 more players but I know the team that has Kris Bryant will trade for Donaldson. Would you do the trade to get him or hold? Thanks for any advice that is helpful!
Thanks for all your responses. Since I figure I'm keeping Abreu, Donaldson, Desmond, Springer, and Gray for sure, what position would you target in the draft for high-dollar players? Maybe OF, SP?
thanks guys. looks like 4 of the 5 seem pretty set in gomez, jones, donaldson, and springer. gonna have to decide between a pitcher in price/kluber or steals with hamilton (because i like the idea of pairing up hamilton and drafting someone like gordon).
I would not keep Hamilton, as there are other players out there that will be available with similar value: Dyson, D. Gordon, R. Davis, etc. All B. Hamilton will bring you is SB and you can get that elsewhere, he is overrated in fantasy.
10 Team 5X5 Mixed Roto Auction League. $240 budget. 4 Keepers.
My choices and keeper values are:
Corey Kluber - $5
Adam Wainwright - $20
Sonny Gray - $5
David Ortiz - $10
Freddie Freeman - $22
Hunter Pence - $32
Jason Kipnis - $20
Sal Perez - $5
Nolan Arenado - $5
Kris Bryant - $5
Carlos Santana - $22
Mookie Betts - $5
Please choose 4
10 team standard 5x5 roto (with 5 outfield spots). can keep up to 5 players for 4 years (counts as your first 5 draft picks, and this would be year 1 for all keepers). which 5 would you keep from:
my preference is to keep #$%$ but any input is appreciated. right now, leaning gomez, jones, hamilton, springer, and donaldson.
I can pick up to six of the following with how much I bought them (auction) for last year being deducted from my budget, which is $260. H2H standard cats plus OPS and QS.
McCann - $1
Jose Abreu - $9
Kinsler - $14
Desmond - $19
Adam Jones - $36
Chris Carter - $1
Puig - $29
Span - $1
JD Martinez - $1
Dozier - $1
Myers - $20
Springer - $1
Sonny Gray - $6
Latos - $12
Archer - $3
Strasburg - $28
Wacha - $11
Jose Fernandez - $27
Abreu and Donaldson are locks. Then thinking Jones, Gray, Strasburg, and Springer. But maybe I can throw Jones and/or Stras back and draft them cheaper or for the same price? I would like to keep Desmond and not have to worry about SS. Thoughts? Thanks.
Generally I agree with those below, I think you could get more for Samardzija if he was on the block, someone younger or maybe even two younger players that were pretty established
