Is that Scotty Manram in your OF?

I thought he was still in Single-A ball.

Of the trades you made, the only good one was the jose reyes one. Personally, I think the trades made your team a little worse than it was before.

Wait what?

Berkman for Gomes? How are you in first? :-o


hindsight that one was a bad trade, he was equal until he injured his shoulder.

WTF? Gomes was never equal to Berkman, despite any hot streak. Then you gave up Kearns on top of it. 8-o

You had a huge downgrade in 1B, going from fielder and berkman to helton. Huge downgrades in OF, going from Beltran, Crawford, and Holliday (3 top notch OF with great stats in all 5 categories) to manram, crawford, gomes, and patterson. Out of those OF only crawford is considered top notch, and only crawford and patterson are playable. Upgrading SS from rollins to reyes doesnt make this up, especially when you lost kearns. So your offense took a big hit from these trades.

You SP got an upgrade but I don't think it balances out your offense's huge downgrade. With your original team, you will still be 1st and probably with a bigger lead.
