OK, let me preface this by saying, this trade was proposed to me. And I really just had to accept it, I felt, despite the holes it leaves me with. I'll need to find a C until Wieters gets called up, a 3B, and I'll only have 2 SP left that aren't on the DL or in AAA.
The leagues scoring is annoying...
My current roster 12 Team Yahoo H2H R/H/1B/2B/3B/HR/RBI/SB/AVG/SLG GS/IP/W/SHO/SV/K/ERA/WHIP/K:BB
C- Victor Martinez (C/1B) 1B- Prince Fielder 2B- Dan Uggla 3B- Emilio Bonifacio (2B/3B) SS- Troy Tulowitzki OF- Torii Hunter OF- Carl Crawford OF- Grady Sizemore Util- Travis Hafner
BN- Elijah Dukes BN- Cameron Maybin NA- Matt Wieters
SP- James Shields, Ricky Nolasco, Anibal Sanchez RP- Brad Lidge, Francisco Cordero, Brandon Morrow, Ryan Franklin, Manny Corpas
NA- David Price DL- Chris Carpenter DL- Kelvim Escobar DL- Brandon Webb
So, it leaves me with 2 starters not in the minors or on the DL, but I'll just hit the FA pool and stream if I have to. I'll probably just dump Burrell for a FA starter right off the bat. I have to hope Wieters gets called up sooner rather than later. I have to find a 3B as well. But, I can flip Uggla, and probably Holliday to pick up a 3B and a decent SP. I mean, I'm not crazy right? Am I missing something here?
I guess, I just wanted to share what I thought was highway robbery. Hopefully, the league doesn't vote this down. I mean, it was proposed to ME.
I wouldn't believe that trade even takes 5 seconds to get shut down It's ridiculous, but nice work if it doesn't you are just a few minor pickups or trades form winning the league. Thanks for the help on mine.
Catchers available are like, Shoppach (likely my pickup), Suzuki, Navarro, Buck, Varitek, Pudge, Flores, Snyder, Teagarden
Options at 3rd are like, Mark Reynolds, Lowell, Blake, Wigginton, Teahen, Rolen, Ian Stewart, Josh Fields, Billy Hall, Crede, and Nomar.
I just picked up Chase Headley, who apparently is 3B eligible. I don't know how thrilled I am about his actual production as an everyday starter, but I'm going to see if Fields clears waivers and grab him if I can. Then after this trade goes through, I'm going to see if I can swap like Holliday for something like Chris Davis and a decent starter.
It looks like it's going to go through. League has to vote it down, and no one has voted against it, yet.
Hey man, that trade is insane hahah but if it doesn't get vetoed then you are in good shape lol. As far as who you should pickup from the WW, I like Shoppach as well, but keep an eye on Buck he is on fire now and if gets more playing time he could be worth a look. I would take either Mark Reynolds or Teahen.
Yep, trade went through, w/o a complaint, and I have no idea why. But I'll take it.
Picked up Shoppach for the time being at Catcher. Not a whole lot of better options. Maybe Suzuki because he'll get more ABs...
Picked up Lowell at 3B for now, and offered Uggla for Chris Davis straight up. I'd like to pack him and Holliday for a 3B and pitcher, but no one seems to be biting, saying that Holliday can't hit outside of Coors. So when he get's going, I'll try moving him again.
did manage to flip Dukes for Wandy Rodriguez, and dropped Maybin for Jordan Zimmermann cause I needed to get a couple of starts early in the week.
Feeling really good about this team, but the 4 OFs (Braun/Sizemore/Crawford/Holliday) is kind of annoying me because I can't help wanting to get Hafner in the lineup, being an Indians homer.
