New and Improved Squad at Deadline WHIR

Postby KingOfSports » Wed Aug 01, 2012 6:20 pm

12 team H2H categories, no keepers

Currently in 5th out of 12. 2nd in east. 6 teams make playoffs and I'm only 6 games back of the guy in first place. Plus I have the easiest schedule in the league to end the year.

In my last 7 games to end the regular season, I only face 1 team above .500. Combined, they are 124 games under .500. I've already beaten the first two teams 11-3 and 10-4 respectively and I lead my current matchup 11-3.


C - Miguel Montero
1B - Billy Butler/Miguel Cabrera
2B - Dustin Pedroia
SS - Marco Scutaro
3B - Miguel Cabrera/Aramis Ramirez
OF - Jason Heyward
OF - Jason Kubel/Ben Revere
OF - Alex Rios
UTIL - Adrian Gonzalez

DL - Dee Gordon
DL - Emilio Bonifacio

SP - Dan Haren
SP - Madison Bumgarner
SP - CJ Wilson
SP - Gio Gonzalez
SP - Kyle Lohse
SP - Doug Fister
SP - Paul Maholm
SP - Dan Straily
SP/RP - Mike Fiers
RP - Huston Street
RP - Alfredo Aceves
RP - Tom Wilhelmsen
RP - Grant Balfour



On my watchlist: 3B Mike Olt, OF Tori Hunter, 2B Rickie Weeks, OF Justin Ruggiano, OF Carlos Gomez, OF Ryan Ludwick, 3B Pedro Alvarez, 2B/3B Kyle Seager, OF Lorenzo Cain, OF Starling Marte, C/OF Ryan Doumit

Thanks for your help

You could really use Gio, so as long as there are decent options on the WW...i'm ok with this deal.

Thanks for your help with mine.

Thanks for helping me. Great deal. You'll be sending over a lot of 'could be's' for the top players in this deal. Well done.

Yeah. With keepers obviously I wouldn't do this deal, but I could use the pitching help for playoffs. Thanks for you help.

There are a couple single or double category guys who I could use, but most of them will be specialists like Ben Revere for steals and average, Pedro Alvarez for power, etc.

Thanks for your help.

I like the proposed trade as well. At first glance, you seem to lack significant power in your lineup outside of Cabrera and maybe Butler, and you have a lot of good quality players and speed otherwise. Also, given that Haren has struggled, your starting pitching is somewhat hurt. I think the trade addresses both of those gaps, and giving up bench players, esp in a non-keeper league is never a bad idea when you're getting starters back.

Go for it!

Thanks for your help on mine. Since its not a keeper league and none of those guys are starters its a great way to improve your team.

I don't really love the deal. Gio is not exactly a sure thing, and you give up a lot of guys that could get hot and really help you the last 2 months. That's right, there are 2 full months left of baseball. Aramis is good, but he's nothing special, and you give up too much depth, unless the guys on the WW are ridiculous. Without seeing the wire, I would pass on this deal. You can get more sure things than this.
