Help me please

Postby T-fence92 » Tue Jul 15, 2008 1:50 am

This is my team. My league has 10 teams and it is rotisserie style. It is also a keeper league, where we keep 4 players for next year.

C: Dioner Navarro
1B: James Loney
2B: José López
3B:Mike Lowell
SS: Michael Young
CI: Conor Jackson
MI: Ramón Vázquez
OF: Matt Kemp
OF: Brad Hawpe
OF: Josh Hamilton
UTIL: David DeJesús
UTIL: Raúl Ibañez

Bench:
Skip Schumaker
Ben Francisco
Justin Upton


Pitchers:

SP:
Armando Galarraga
John Maine
Manny Parra
Todd Wellemeyer

RP:
Takashi Saito
Ryan Franklin
Salomón Torres

P:
Aaron Cook
Nick Blackburn
Seth McClung

Bench:
Javier Vazquez
Greg Smith
Eddie Guardado

DL:
Chris Carpenter
Troy Percival

I made some trades to get some very good pick in next years draft (that's why my team sucks even more than before). But I was wondering if there is anything that you could suggest that would make it better.
I'm all ears:

well ypu dont have alot of power and you need a middle infielder try to pick up mike aviles off waivers and maybe a eric aybar also you have a ton of outfields I hate to say it but if you can trade upton for a miqel cabera I would do it and you need pitching try to pick up a greg smith or guthrie . and for a closer try marte he might be there or dotel also maybe a jp howell for a good solid era guy.

you know what though you may want to do some 2 for 1 tradeds and get more keeper level players you got to know in a keeper you need top 40 players prospects are kinda go out the window unless you get a ryan braun.

I am putting out a lot of 2 or even 3 for 1 deals.

I don't even think that I have 4 keepers right now
Maybe:
1. Upton
2. Liriano
3. Conor
4. Parra/Buchholz/Carpenter/Kemp

I made another deal and this is what my roster looks like now:

Hitters

C: Dioner Navarro
1B: James Loney
2B: was Jose Lopez now Placido Polanco
3B: Mike Lowell
SS: Michael Young
CI: Conor Jackson
MI: Ramón Vázquez
OF: Matt Kemp
OF: Brad Hawpe
OF: was Josh Hamilton now a bench OF
UTIL: David DeJesús
UTIL: Raúl Ibañez

Bench:
Skip Schumaker
Ben Francisco
Justin Upton
Added: Cody Ross

Pitchers:

SP:
Armando Galarraga
John Maine
Manny Parra
Todd Wellemeyer

RP:
Takashi Saito
Ryan Franklin
Salomón Torres

P:
Aaron Cook
was Nick Blackburn now Clay Buchholz and Francisco Liriano


Bench:
Javier Vazquez
Greg Smith
Eddie Guardado

DL:
Chris Carpenter
Troy Percival


Proposed trades right now:


#1
I give: Skip, Cook, Vazquez
I get: Sabathia

#2
I give: DeJesus, Skip, Guardado, Wellemeyer
I get: Harden and Oswalt

#3
I give: Loney, Greg Smith
I get: Lidge

I am hoping to free up some roster moves so that I can grab some minor leaguers get promoted. and then sticking it out with them and some September call-ups.

ok for your keepers I like kemp over conor I like trade 1 not 2 it's too much to give for a injury prone player and a player who is injured I and cc would be a nice keeper to have the third one isnt bad if you really need a closer but you need to tell yourself if you have a chance or not yo may want to try a 2 for 1 to try to get atleast one keeper level player and you have hamilton right?

#1
I give: Skip, Cook, Vazquez
I get: Sabathia

This is a no-brainer. Do it now. C.C. is still young enough for keeper status.

#2
I give: DeJesus, Skip, Guardado, Wellemeyer
I get: Harden and Oswalt

Harden healthy, is a def. KEEPER. Oswalt not much so, but Guardado stinks, Wellemeyer who knows, and Dejesus is OK. Do the deal.

#3
I give: Loney, Greg Smith
I get: Lidge

NO WAY. Loney is a keeper! Greg Smith has pitched well this year. I wouldnt make this trade for an injury risk, closer.

#1 is still waiting for a response, #2 and #3 were declined.

More trades proposed by me to another owner:

#4
I give: Upton, Greg Smith, John Maine
I get: Johan and Fausto.
This one is a stretch and I doubt he accepts

#5
I give: Ramon Vazquez, Skip, Wellemeyer.
I get: Brian Roberts and Joba.
this one is stretching it too.

#6
I give: DeJesus and Maine
I get: B.J. Upton
DeJesus has pretty much the exact same numbers, or at least he has some better and some worse. and Maine thrown in. I could see it being accepted. Plus I can probably get another pitcher with close to the same stats as Mains

#7
This one I might be giving up too much, so please tell me quickly
I give: Kemp, Loney and Wellemeyer
I get: Braun
With the two open spots I can replace Wellemeyer's and Loney's numbers, so I don't think its that bad.

I also dropped Ben Francisco and picked up Chad Tracy.
