    What would you give up for Manny Machado?

    by Diz Apr 21, 2014 12:42 PM

    Machado's owner said he doesn't want Pineda or Eovaldi.

    I'll take it. Don't want to post email address on public message board though...

  • Manny Machado is being shopped in the private league I'm in. We can trade next year's draft picks as well... It is a keeper league of sorts.
    The manager wants starting pitching. My staff includes Jose Fernandez, Madison Bumgarner, Gio Gonzalez, Tony Cingrani, Sonny Gray, Michael Pineda, Nathan Eovaldi and Garrett Richards.
    My current third basemen are Nolan Arenado and Pedro Alveraz.
    Thanks

  • Anyone know of a way (An app maybe?) where I can get news updates (the little yellow page with the orange star) sent to my phone when they happen for players on my watch list? I am looking to get some prospect call ups added to my team when they are added to the MLB roster but I won't be able to check several times daily EVERYDAY haha...I would like something to send me a notification when there has been "new news" added for those players

    THANKS!

    TRADES

    by Leonardo Apr 20, 2014 8:55 PM

    So are you saying that without trades fantasy leagues aren't fun? I don't agree, read on for the reason.

    I have the max teams Yahoo allows for one username which is 8. All teams were drafted early February. I have made one trade in almost three months between all 8 leagues. That trade was initiated by the other manager, I gave Soriano for Gattis. Currently I am 23-1 in those 8 leagues after 3 weeks. I have made far more waiver wire moves than any other manager in every league and there are between 6-10 moves allowed per manager per week and I use all of them. I am having a blast and have made hundreds of waiver wire moves across all leagues but only ONE trade. Thus waiver wire moves are far more important than trades, via my evidence.

    Do you actually believe trading is the #$%$" in fantasy sports or is it about winning? To me winning is the #$%$" and nothing else, without exception. Sunday night when I know I'm going to win is a complete rush. Trading gives me pause, "did I do the best thing for my team", "will the other team accept it or think it is a joke", "will other teams approve it", "will there be an argument about it?" Most trades I've seen are someone trying to take advantage another team without regard to league integrity.

    drop Allen Craig for Chris Collabello?

    by Max Apr 20, 2014 10:46 PM

    It is a long season. You drop Craig and ALL the other teams will attempt to pick him up. Then they will use him against you, when he has figured out how the other teams are pitching him. So to make a long story short, ARE YOU CRAZY???

    by Max Apr 20, 2014 10:46 PM

    must be someone else you can drop. pick up collabello though.

  • Craig hasn't been himself and I need help in avg and rbis. you think Craig rebounds, or is he worth dropping?

  • I don't understand, are you all not evaluating your teams in approving your rosters? Doesn't seem like any owner is interested in trades.. come people this is supposed to be fun! ENGAGE

  • Broxton did well this week, but will eventually lose his job. Farnsworth has been named closer over Valverde. Worth switching them out?

    I guess that's the thing... I haven't heard anyone say he's a must have and guaranteed can't miss guy... The hype I've heard is just regarding his upside. The excitement is, if he can make the adjustment to big league pitching, the upside is phenomenal... nobody knows when he'll make the adjustment and there's always the chance he won't. He does have the advantage that speed can turn a lot of balls in play into hits that other players wouldn't get and the metrics show a reasonable expectation that he can improve. IMHO, he may not meet expectations in 2014, but I really don't think he'll be a fantasy bust.

    Hmm, his numbers are lower at the major league level than the minors, and I guess that the fact that is against big league competition doesn't factor in at all. Trust me, I know the resume, hell, I could write the resume. The people hyping him are doing based off of 2012 against the lower minors and ignoring this year and last year against far better competition.

    nothing to stick with, I was smart enough to not touch the raw talent. Speed does slump if it never gets on base.

    Can't really call a guy a bust when he's had less than 100 MLB at bats. First few weeks of the season is a small sample size. His BABIP is lower now than any point in his minor league career ... so that's part of the equation when you look at that OBP. The other portion is his walk rate is also the lower than any point in his minor league career. If he shows a little more patience at the plate and a few more of those balls in play squeeze past someone, you're looking at a dramatically better OBP. It 2012 between A+ and AA, he had 155 steals... he's had 5 steals (and 5 runs) in the 9 hits and 3 walks he's had this season... you boost that OBP a bit and you're looking at some insane numbers.

    Not every rookie is going to have an easy road and most rookies have slumps and periods where they're slow to make adjustments. That's part of having a rookie on your roster. If you're patient, there could be big rewards. You are right in the fact that there is a lot of hype and he's probably not going to live up to all the hype in his first full season, but he will help a fantasy team that got him for the right price and exercised some patience.
