What the most trades you've made...

Postby bleach168 » Sun Jun 15, 2003 1:47 pm

in a single league so far?

For me, it's 1 :) Hey! I'm confident in my drafting skills :p

One guy in my league has already done 5, but I bet some of you guys can top that. Let's hear some stories!

Well, I am usually a very conservative guy, but I have made 3 trades so far:


Trade 1

I got Juan Cruz for Steve Kline
(this is when I thought Cruz was going to have a bigger role for the Cubs)

Trade 2:

I got Pat Burrell/Adam Eaton for Mike Cameron/Jesse Foppert
(trade made two weeks ago with the hope of Burrell coming out of his slump)

Trade 3

I got Manny Ramirez/Jim Edmonds/Jeff Suppan for Adam Dunn/
Hank Blalock/Brett Myers

(this trade was made only two days after my second trade)

-That has nothing to do with trading. If you just sit there not making trades you will be left in the dust. Making trades is key for adjusting and adapting to different situations as the season goes on.

Made 4 of them so far and I'm only in 4th place in a 10 team. Mainly, that's due to neither offense or pitching hitting on all cylinders at the same time but I digress.

Trade 1
Gave Mike Williams
Got Bartolo Colon

Trade 2
Gave Adam Dunn, Paul Lo Duca
Got Mike Piazza

Trade 3
Gave Erubiel Durazo, Kelvim Escobar
Got Rafael Palmeiro

Trade 4
Gave Bartolo Colon, Ryan Klesko, Tim Wakefield
Got Curt Schilling

All these were made pre-season too.

Nice STACKED team you got there sponge. I'd wish you luck in that league, but you don't need it.

hehe yea...my team is pretty stacked. There is one other team that is pretty good too. Me and him have been battling it out for 1st and 2nd for a while now. It's only a matter of time before I take 1st for good though. Can't wait until FJ comes back. The other 8 people in my league are all competing for 3-10th place lol.

Here's some of my trades that I made:

Renteria/Pierre for Nomar
Prior for RJ (before he got hurt)
Smoltz for Prior
Javier Vazqeuz/Zambrono for Mags
Moyer/Winn for Berkman
Matsui for Maddux
AJ Burnett for Wade Miller (long time ago)
Mags/Martinez/Maddux for Thome/Berkman/Meche
Sweeney/Payton for Sosa
Sosa/Meche for Zito

7 trades for me (listed from most recent to earliest)

I give D. Lee and K. Benson for O. Cabrera and R. Ibanez (Eckstein wasn't getting it done at SS, and Lee wasn't stealing)

I get A.J. Burnett and Eric Hinske for Paul Konerko and C.C. Sabathia (this was done before Burnett got hurt - now it's basically CC for Hinske, as Konerko was cut by the other guy)

I get M. Clement, J. Posada, C.C. Sabathia, and R. Sexson for S. Rolen, D. Moss, H. Ramirez, and A. Leiter (I have Lowell at 3B, and had no catcher)

I get P. Konerko, B. Myers, and D. Moss for T. Hafner, R. Ibanez, and M. Bellhorn.

I get S. Rolen for M. Remlinger, T. Salmon, and R. Dempster.

My team revolves around trading. I lead my ($$$$) league in trades every single year. You have to be smart, nice, say the right things, don't overhype players or else the good players won't take you seriously so just be honest about everything but bring out the most convincing parts of your honesty.

Braden Looper FOR Juan Gone;

Koskie FOR J. Santana;

M. Rivera FOR K. Brown;

J. Cruz FOR A. Sanchez
(10 Steals in 9 games from A. Sanchez... obviosly won't keep it up)

A. Sanchez FOR F. Thomas
The key to Fantasy Sports is NOT about Sports but rather the "manipulation of numbers" in your favor
