Drunk Trading... Never Good....Quality Control Help (WHIR)

Postby etl1692 » Mon May 13, 2013 12:11 pm

Wow I dont know what to think here..... Had one too many last night and proposed a trade.
I gave: Konerko and League
I got: B.J. Upton

Now I'm not sure how badly I got burned I think its not terrible. This was my reasoning. LEague has Kenley breathing down his neck for that closer roll. Dodgers have not been good lately, and he has not produce enough pts. to be affective. Konerko on the other hand is OLD just OLD. He may snap out of it but who knows. I bought low on B.J. but is he EVER coming up?

Now I have an open spot now, which was to mainly activate Garza, but for now, who do I fill in this spot. It doesnt have to be a RP, cause Its a points league, not categories. I would like to keep it a Pitcher.

Options: Ubaldo Jiminez, Francisco Liriano, HEath Bell, Kevin Gregg, BRett Anderson, Mike LEake, Julio Tehren (stream vs. Ari), MArco Estrada

Tip: Dont trade and drink. (And after Garza comes off DL I look to stash Beachy)

*Indicates Keeper
Batting:
C: Miguel Montero
1B: Joey Votto *
2B: Dustin Pedroia
3B: Ryan Zimmerman

If BJ steps it up this might be a good trade, but for now I think this was a bad trade BJ is doing nothing

Thanks for the help.

I think by years end this will end up being a good trade. As it stands now, it doesn't look good, but BJ will turn it around and be a 20/30 in that line up and hell be more valuable than what you gave up.

YOu guys are kinda spot on... Bad trade just cause too much has to happen.

B.J. Has to turn it on
Konerks HAS to continue to suck
League NEeds to lose his job

If all this happens then whatever. I honestly was going to drop league anyways to activate Garza, so it was Konerko for Upton really

Who out of those FA's up top should I scoop?

Thinking about streaming Julio Tehran vs. Arizona tomorrow. Then I will pick up Kevin Gregg as RP. When Garza returns I will drop Kevin Gregg, to activate Garza, while storing BEachy. ;-D What do ya think?


Thanks guys! Leave more links ill help.!

I would definitely add a reliever, 2 is typically not enough to win you saves each week unless you have two studs. I guess I would go with Gregg over Bell but I don't like either :-o

Thing is I dont compete for stats, like saves, K's etc. So its all based off of a point system. A save is 5pts etc. So having 2 RP's is not bad at all.


ITs a points system, not categories.

Batting: R=1 H=1 2B=2 3B=3 HR=4 RBI=2 SB=2 CS=-1 BB=1 IBB=1 HBP=1 K=-1 GIDP=-1 TB=1
