Done Prepping for next year, hows it look???

Postby APAP » Fri Aug 22, 2008 7:49 pm

So when I finally came to grips that my season is all but over in my dynasty, I made the following trades. How do they look and hows my team looking for next year:

EDIT: Made 3 more trades since posting

- Traded Matt Holliday for Jake Peavy
- Traded Jermaine Dye/Stephen Drew/Gio Gonzalez for Geovany Soto/Clayton Kershaw
- Traded Matt Cain for Justin Upton
- Traded Adam Dunn/Paul Maholm for Carlos Lee
- Traded Ubaldo Jimenez for James Loney
- Traded Ervin Santana/Angel Villalona for David Ortiz
- Traded Kevin Youkilis for Brandon Phillips
- Traded Corey Hart for Alfonso Soriano
- Traded Ian Stewart/Josh Johnson for BJ Upton/Adam Wainwright
- Traded Curtis Granderson/Justin Smoak for Rick Ankiel/Rick Porcello/Andy LaRoche

Im looking at one final deal where I can hopefully acquire Matt Garza and Mike Aviles for Ankiel and LaRoche.

Those are some pretty wicked trades for a keeper league. Good luck next year... I don't think you will need luck though because it looks pretty sick.

- Traded Matt Holliday for Jake Peavy Took a lot, but you got your fantasy ace ;-D
- Traded Jermaine Dye/Stephen Drew/Gio Gonzalez for Geovany Soto/Clayton Kershaw love the upgrade at C and the potential of Kershaw over Gio. ;-D
- Traded Matt Cain for Justin Upton Cain would have complimented Peavy nicely, and not sure you needed Upton :-t
- Traded Adam Dunn/Paul Maholm for Carlos Lee Depending on the league, this could be huge. If you count Ks, then great move. Part of it depends on where Dunn ends up next year. But I like the trade over all ;-D
- Traded Ubaldo Jimenez for James Loney With Fielder at 1B, Cabrera soon to be only 1B, not sure this was the best move to make, but a great deal. Loney has more trade value then Jimenez ;-D
- Traded Ervin Santana/Angel Villalona for David Ortiz Ervin has had a great year...VERY different then last year. Could be a great sell high. ;-D Or did he finally find his groove?
- Traded Kevin Youkilis for Brandon Phillips Loney and Fielder...plus you needed the 2B. Great move. ;-D

10 teams h2h
Full $$$ Dynasty
c Geovany Soto
1b Prince Fielder
2b Brandon Phillips
3b Miguel Cabrera You'll probably have a hole here next season, or at least the season after that
ss Jose Reyes
ci James Loney

lf Carlos Lee

Minor League Farm System
1) 1b Justin Smoak trade bait with Fielder, Loney and Cabrera already on your team
2) ss Mike Moustakas might be good trade bait with a young Reyes slotted at SS
3) 3b Pedro Alvarez Cabrera moving to 1B, could free up a spot, just not sure he'll be ready that quickly
4) sp Neftali Feliz
5) sp Jhoulys Chacin
6) sp Jeremy Hellickson


What's your league style..I know H2H, but what categories...5x5? That might change a few things.
Why are you still in this league? You seem to be better suited in a more competitive league. Some of the deals you made, I'm not sure why the other owner thought they were getting the better end of the deal.
Good luck, feel free to PM me

Thanks for the long response ;-D

I got in a hole real early in this league this year which was due to inactivity. I couldnt really get it going with PSATs, SATs, Finals, and a few varsity sports that I had to focus on before I could really shift my time to fantasy baseball this summer. Which lead me to miss out on some quality FA keepers (Ludwick, McLouth etc), and had my rosters set the same for about 7-8 weeks. I got in to deep with loses and by the time I was able to really get it going I was something like 2-7 :-°

It's a h2h league, with the following scoring:
Singles (1B) 1
Doubles (2B) 2
Triples (3B) 3
Home Runs (HR) 4
Walks (BB) 1
Runs Scored (R) 2
Runs Batted In (RBI) 2
Sacrifices (SAC) 1
Stolen Bases (SB) 3
Game Winning RBI (GWRBI) 5
Outfield Assists (OFAST) 5
Hitting for the Cycle (CYC) 15

Innings Pitched (IP) 3
Hits Allowed (H) -1
Walks Issued (BB) -1
Earned Runs (ER) -1
Strikeouts (K) 2
Wins (W) 8
Losses (L) -3
Saves (SV) 10
Blown Saves (BS) -1
Holds (HD) 6
Complete Games (CG) 8
Quality Starts (QS) 5
Shutouts (SO) 15
No Hitters (NH) 25
Perfect Games (PG) 50
This league as you can tell is pretty pitcher heavy and weighted.

I wanted to try and make the best trades that I could to get the best possible amount of keepers I could get. I realize the log jam that I could have now at 1b with Fielder, MCab, and Loney but I'm gonna work that out when it becomes a problem. Loney has great trade value so when this becomes a problem I'll likely trade him for a pitcher. I also have the prospect of losing Stewart's MI eligilibility which kinda sucks, so hopefully he logs more games at 2b (hopefully?). I have another trade in the works where I could very likely be getting Alfonso Soriano for Granderson and Pedro Alvarez. That allows me to slot in Sori and Ortiz as my Utils, then slot in Hart to my CF (as long as he keeps that eligilibility) and move Upton to RF. So Ive got some decisions to make but hey thats most of the fun isnt it?
