M.Young,V.wells,C.Lee for Braun

Postby mcd6754 » Thu Jul 07, 2011 10:47 am

Hey guys I am in a H2H league and i am in 1st place with only 1 loss so far. just traded C.lee, Michael Young and Vernon wells for Braun. I Picked up Freeman to take my 1b/3b slot which allowed me to deal young.

Just want thoughts. My team Looks like this after the deal. I felt since its such a deep pitcher year i can do spot starts with my free bench space.

I am assuming that is Cliff Lee and not Carlos Lee.

I think this was a good deal for you. Your SP took a hit but I don't think it should kill you and you might be able to find some quality pitchers off the WW that you can stream. But overall I think you did very well.

Solid team here I reckon. What SP are available since you have a free spot now?
If you only start 3 OF I'd cut Alex Rios for a SP as well.

When I first read the subject, I thought C Lee was Carlos Lee for some reason.

Oh well. Michael Young and Vernon Wells aren't the BIGGEST of losses. Personally, I'm a big fan of Freeman the rest of the way. He could even put up better numbers than Heyward (if we're talking about the next gen of Braves).

Braun is a stud. He's one of the top 5 players in fantasy baseball, and you could maybe make the argument he's the number one overall. I think this is a case of a good package for getting a stud. I hate losing Lee, but let's face it--he actually can throw a stinker every now and again. For someone who is an "ace", he regularly gets shelled every 5th or 6th outing it seems.

Nice trade.

It is Cliff Lee, (sry)

I had to waiver bud Norris before i made the move to make sure i could get freeman, allowing me to shop young(while he is scorching)
I wanted all contact and power hitters (upton,braun,Holliday,Hamilton) Rios is my 5th OF spot.

I want to pick Norris back up as he leads my WW list in points. next in line is Mahlom. but it seems that there is good match ups every week so spot start anyway. If i grab Norris then i can spot start my last pitcher.



Its a 5 OF league so i don't have any hitters on my bench (I prefer having the excess pitchers)

C Miguel Montero
1b Paul Konerko
2b Rickie Weeks
3b Adrian Beltre
SS Hanley Ramirez
MI Kelly Johnson
CI Freddie Freeman
OF
Josh Hamilton
Justin Upton
Matt Holliday
Ryan Braun
Alex Rios
UTL/BN
Dustin Ackley


1st trade of year = ubaldo for j upton :D

I think this is a great trade for you, assuming you are able to pick up another quality pitcher off the FA. Hopefully you can get Bud Norris back.

I guess I figured braun, Freeman(filling young slot), and WW pitcher or norris back > Young, Lee, Wells

I mean michael young has to slow down right? and if he hits well, i have Hamilton and Beltre on base before him :D
