Time to start buying low..... WHIR 100%

Postby germani40 » Fri Aug 05, 2011 7:51 pm

I am 15 games back now and to make up that much ground is going to be difficult so I am trying to figure out who I can buy low right now in preparation for next season because this is a keeper league. Right now 3 people I am thinking about targeting are Adam Dunn, Jason Heyward and Zach Greinke . My roster is in my signature. Is there anyone on there that could land me one of these guys in a 1 for 1 type deal or packaging 2 guys for 1 of these. Lastly In what order should I target these guys.

Also I know it is tough without the knowledge of the other teams rosters but posting all of that would be too much work.

Thanks post a link and I will help!

I'd try Beltran for Greinke ... His era is inflated but I think he will continue to adjust and be great next year. Sell high on the Beltran hype and giants situation. I'm not drinking the kool aid Long term bc he has a tendency to dog it to the tune of .240 after teasing with a hot streak.

Don't touch Dunn. I would be fine going after both Heward or Greinke, though would probably take Greinke first. Beltran would be a good offer though at this point, with you being so far out, I would over pay for the guy. Might as well make sure you get the players you want to build your team for next year. Another guy you might target is Hosmer if you can.

The guy who has Greinke also has hosmer who should I try to throw in to get them both. He doesnt need a 1st baseman he already has Pujols and Votto

Do all you can to pry away Hosmer. Maybe by flipping Vogelsong?

We keep a max of 15. Each player kept costs $10 in the auction. If you keep 0 you get $350 and it goes down $10 for each player you keep

The best players to trade are those just off your current list. Contending teams that have injuries/underperformers to keepers make the best targets. Teams overloaded with positions like the first base situation also make great trading opportunities; look for more of those. gotta make offers based on specific keeper league requirements...which I see you've updated as I go to post

I wouldn't worry about buying low. I would go for the best player you can get. Yeah, Heyward would be nice, maybe Justin Morneau. But, if you are not playing for this year, think about putting all of your chips (excepting your Top 5) for a Pujols or a Votto or a Braun. Getting two or three superstuds is the way to go, I think. Especially since you do not NEED to keep 15.
