I agree, but I have no shot to win it this year. I play in a serious salary structured pay league and I need to build my team up for next year. We have to keep 7 guys and I only have 5 real keepers, so I need to unload guys who I can't keep.
This is besides the point, I guess who does the consensus think is a better long-term player between Brown and Moose?
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...
It's way too early to concede defeat IMO but if you are set on doing so, shop Youkilis openly to yourleague. You should get better keepers if there is any competition at the top.
61* 70**73**762*** MVP****AL07,AL05,NL04,ALNL03,ALNL02,NL01,ALNL00,AL99,ALNL98,ALNL96 RIP Cammi Cmon Bud NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug testing program down Fehr's fat throat and save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!
I have Pineda (traded Greinke for him) and Hosmer to me is in the same boat as Moose and Brown as far as talent and potential. Plus I have Votto at 1B. To me, besides pitching Brown and Moose are the best prospects in the game, when you factor in they're already on a big league club. Harper and Trout are probably 2 years away.
I'm 20 games out of a playoff spot (2 awful week in a row and ran up against some hot teams) and have injuries to deal with, which will not help me make up any ground in the next month or so. Plus we have a trade deadline and I want to get some stuff done. These 1-1 deals are about as best as I can do (the Brown guy just pulled the deal, but I think I can convince him again) as Youk not being able to be kept is HUGE in our league.
I'm leaning towards Brown, but I love Moose's 3B eligibility.
