Trade Transformation Complete - Hows the new look? - WHIR

Postby Heiserman02 » Fri Jun 01, 2007 2:15 am

So I went on a bit of a trade binge recently, trying to buy low and sell high as much as I could. Here are the results of the trades I made (all grouped together) I think I'll be better in the long run.

I gave: A.Gonzalez (sell high), Aaron Rowand (sell high), Rich Hill (sell high), Ryan Zimmerman, John Maine (sell high), Chris Young (sell high)

I got: Curt Schilling (buy low), Cole Hamels, Garrett Atkins (buy low), Dave Bush (a speculative buy low), Billy Wagner, Mark Teahen

Hill, Maine, and Young's peripheral's all indicate they have been pretty lucky, whereas Schilling, Hamels, and Bush are all due for a better turn in luck. I think Atkins is a better bet than Zimmerman to finish with good stats.

Here is my current roster after 5 trades, what do you think:

10-Team 5x5 Roto Mixed League

C - M.Barrett
1B - P.Konerko
2B - C.Utley
3B - G.Atkins
SS - E.Renteria
OF - M.Holliday
OF - C.Crawford
OF - J.Bay
UT - C.Guillen
Bench - D.Johnson
Bench - M.Teahen

SP - C.Hamels
SP - C.Schilling
RP - J.Putz
RP - B.Wagner
P - F.Hernandez
P - T.Lincecum
P - K.Escobar
Bench - J.Blanton
Bench - B.Hennessy
Bench - D.Bush
DL - H.Street

Leave a link and I'll let you know what I think.

great transformation..but your wrong about a few things:

1. chris young isnt lucky, he has the stuff to be an ace
2. alex gonzalez isn't this good, but he could actually be an annual 30 homer guy
3. i think atkins had a lucky year last year
4. bush isnt that good, though he does have the brew crew offense backing him

overall youre headed in the right direction

Are you sure about Young? His BABIP last year was .234, and this year it is .262...

he's got a ridiculously low GB% and a really low HR/Air rate...

Those numbers aren't really sustainable...he's due to give up more HR and more of those hits should be dropping soon...
