Trade involving some of my prospects

Postby TMAC2DARAKBABY » Sat May 19, 2007 3:54 pm

Dont know if this is the right forum as im pretty new to the Cafe & baseball in general. u can tell by the name im more into another sport.

Besides alot in the other forum dont seem to know about prospects or Dynasty leagues in general.

So I'll try here:

Ok right now i am in 2nd place in a
20team Dynasty League

R HR RBI SB AVG OPS W SV K HLD ERA WHIP

As u look at my team below this will probably not last as I lack depth when it comes to batting.

A team has offered me:
Mark Teixeira
Ryan Theriot
Renyel Pinto

for my:

Billy Butler
James Loney
Brandon Wood

To be honest Im not a big Mark Teixeira fan & i wonder if he really has the protection he needs in texas to be a great hitter. Remember last year it wasnt until CLee came that he started to pick it up.
And even then hes #s slipped from the year b4. This year hes seems to be continuing to regress.

Id like as much feedback as possible cause Im really not sure what to do. I love especially Butler and Wood's upside. and i think my team just needs tinkering while all those prospects develop.

Or should i counter?

My team:
C Brian McCann
1B Ryan Shealy
2B Jeff Kent
3B Álex Rodríguez
SS Édgar Rentería
LF Ryan Freel
CF Ryan Church
RF Álex Ríos
Util Khalil Greene
Util Ryan Sweeney
Util Adam Lind
BN Billy Butler N/A
BN Félix Pié NA
BN James Loney N/A
BN Brandon Wood N/A

SP Ervin Santana
SP Chris Young
RP Brad Lidge
RP Jeremy Accardo
P Pat Neshek
P Al Reyes
P Hideki Okajima
P Jeremy Sowers
BN Brandon Webb
BN Tim Lincecum
DL Jason Schmidt

His team:

C Russell Martin
1B Mark Teixeira
2B Ryan Theriot
3B --empty--
SS Felipe López
LF Wily Mo Peña
CF Chris B. Young
RF Jeff Baker
Util Conor Jackson
Util Aaron Hill
Util José Castillo
BN Miguel Montero
BN Jorge Cantú
BN Lastings Milledge
BN Matt Kemp
BN Delwyn Young
DL Chad Tracy

SP Dan Haren
SP Félix Hernández
RP Renyel Pinto

Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

Exactly. Wood is a good chance to bust. I like James Loney, but he is more of a defensive/avg hitting value player. Not fantasy star like Tex. Plus, Theriot is a very good addition.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

This could be the funniest thing I've seen in years. Could this be powenM's team, but he's posting under a different name and saying that he's new to fantasy baseball?

You really need to read my post again. I don't know if it is getting too hot in the NorthEast or if the thought of the Sox actually winning the East this year is frying your brain. ;-)
