    help me make an offer for trout

    by ROB Aug 4, 2015 12:28 PM

    See, again. Even if you offer Arenado, Abreu, Gordon...and a choice of Desmond,Bruce or Gardner...and ANY of the listed pitchers closer or not.....A Trout-lover won't bite...he's that special.....I can't explain because the sum of the parts will exceed his output. But people who have Trout think he's a poss 50/50 guy, a multi-triple crown season possibility. A Mickey Mantle for this generation. One of the guys in my league turned down Miggy/Goldschmidt/McCutcheon for Trout....I ask, how can you better that?

    help me make an offer for trout

    by ROB Aug 4, 2015 12:28 PM

    my entire roster---
    sally perez, jose abreu, dee gordon,nolan arenado,ian desmond,j bruce, brett gardner,gregory polanco, texeira, a rondon---the 9 starters above and aroldis chapman, robertson, betances, and kenley jansen. Betances dont close yet , so i only have 3 closers. I really would like to trade rondon and a SP or 2 for an OF and drop polanco and his 18 sb's to util, He has nothing else i want in return. and there are several streamable SP's in FA-Leake, Tajuan, Veralander...

    That entire list wouldn't land him. Gonna take premium names to cut that deal and seems you are holding back a large part of your roster and tryinf to overwhelm him with quantity over quality.

    I was not offend by the insult, as it was fairly minor, but from time to time, I feel like championing polite discourse, especially when childish name calling is involved.

    As for what happened two years ago, I was under the impression that the "night game" background was merely made the default, and the "day game" background was still an option. I chose the "night game" when it first became an option, so I wouldn't have notice the absence of the the "day game", but I still remember seeing it as an option last year, so if it had disappeared, then apparently the complaints worked to bring it back.

    The message boards are monitored by Yahoo!, but probably not by the people that are responsible for product design. The proper place to complain would be on the feedback pages. There is a link to those pages at the bottom of most if not all of the fantasy pages.

    Not sure why you find it difficult to ignore some threads, but you certainly are not obligated to click on the ones that don't interest you and then post on them. As for helping people, on this thread, telling them it's no use and to stop posting about it does nothing to help. Pointing them to the proper place for such discourse would. The feedback pages mentioned above is that place.

    My best to you and your teams

    Hmm, look at the ranks, Hosmer is a top-50 player this season, with upside, plus NOW he has plenty of lineup protection. Zimm, always liked him, but this season is a few steps down. Personally, I don't rate pitchers too high so, IMO, def Hosmer!

    Leake or Odorizzi ??

    by ROB Aug 3, 2015 4:42 PM

    His pitching style makes him a better fit in AT&T then GAB, he may have problems at Coors but otherwise DS & Petco are pitchers paradices. Chase=Rogers...I tried to sum all that up in my single AT&T sentence.

    A girl, a child, a boat...find out when his birthday is and get a Playboy bunny to spend the night with him. Forget your roster man, if you want Trout you gotta look elsewhere. I offered a guy my 6 best players,2 early draft picks, a car wash and a date with my sister (yeah, shes famous) ...and got turned down!

  • the guy who has him is 13 gms out of the last playoff spot and still active ( so far ) . For his needs i can only offer-- A Rendon ( 2b3b) Wacha,Lynn, Carlos Martinez, G Richards, H Santiago, A Heaney, D Salazar, T baure, and/or Odorizzi. I would rather keep my 3 angels and 3 cardinals.

    IDK if leake is a perfect fit for ATT park but he has good numbers there and his career numbers outside of Cincy show he needed a change.

    neither is a savior. Hosmer has been a post allstar game hitter so far in his career.

    I would hope that if you frequent these boards, your skin is thick enough to brush off the term...I'm not gonna further insult you by repeating it. Its not a fact of ignoring complaints, in fact the background was the #1 complaint....TWO YEARS ago when it was changed from white to dark. The change is necessary, and HAD to be done...it was a corporate mandate. Understand that continuing to complain about something...ESPECIALLY on a msg board NOT INTENDED for Yahoo complaints, and NOT READ by anyone in Yahoo...yeah, its counter-productive, and yes, I AM forced to read them in order to filter out the stuff necessary to comment on a Commissioner Corner board! Yahoo published a forum on which to file complaints about the backgrounds...and withdrew it! It OFFENDS ME when I'M CUT DOWN and my friends CUT DOWN whom have the BEST INTENTIONS of HELPING those with questions and problems relating to running a league, not what color pages or highlights are. That sir, is petty, in any definition you want to take that as.

    That is a good question and I can't figure it out. It would seem he should be an SP or P at the worst. He doesn't have any relevant history as an RP.

    Calling people "whiners." is an insult. Now, you didn't make this insult, but then I wasn't replying to your message.

    It does not matter if they cannot offer a choice right now, because the goal of the complaints is to get Yahoo! to offer the choice in the future as they had done in the past. Simply bending over and taking what they give will certainly not bring about any change.

    Ignoring complaints from consumers is counter productive. Hopefully, they will get together and offer folks a choice, again. In the meantime, I will continue make the occasional complaint about it, and I'm sure others will, too. You and others who may disagree are free to ignore the complaints. It's not like you are forced to read them.

    (FYI I did not give you a thumbs down.)

  • Why is Luis Severino, who is making his debut Wednesday as the Yankees starter, only listed as a RP and not SP?

    Leake or Odorizzi ??

    by ROB Aug 3, 2015 4:42 PM

    Leake is a solid play when he's at home, he's the perfect type of pitcher for AT&T park. Odorizzi & Archer are going to be expected to throw more innings till September and go deeper into games, so they may have spotty performances from time to time. I'd pick up Leake, and take Odorizzi only if the matchup favored him, non-AL East team at home.
