Can this team win it now?

Postby JRM4833 » Wed Aug 11, 2004 12:07 am

16 team 8x8 head to head league keeping 3 players. Here are the trades I have made this year:

I get Renterria for V Wells & A Berroa (was very disappointed in Berroa and wanted the extra roster spot for D Davis, although maybe I could have gotten more)

I get V Martinez for Millar

I get D Ortiz for Clemens

I get J Frasor for Sexson (picked up with #2 WW priority as keeper trade bait)

And my latest trade is with the same as the Sexson trade who is looking to next year. I get J Lopez, Kent & Hawkins for my VMart (his new keeper) and Mackowiak. I am dropping Armas. Here is my new team:

C: J Lopez
1B: Ortiz
2B: Kent
3B: Mueller
SS: Renterria
OF: Vlad, Dye, Podsednik
Util: Durazo/Genkins

SP: Oswalt, L Hernandez, Robertson, Lilly, D Davis, O Hernandez, J Johnson

RP: Rivera, Frasor, Hawkins, Gordon

Its a 16 team league with good managers. Its 8x8 (off: R, H, HR, RBI, SB, E, AVG, OPS; pitching: W, L, SHO, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, K/BB). How do you think I did on the trades? Do you think my team is good enough to win it all? Im in 4th place, 2 games behind 3rd and 3 games ahead 7th and 9.5 games ahead of 8th (top 6 make playoffs). Thank you in advance. Will be glad to help with yours if you leave a link.

I am not familiar with the depth involved in 16 team leagues, but this team looks like a slightly below average 12 team league team, so it must be pretty damn good for a 16 team league. Those trades were great. Good job. If we could see the top couple of teams, it would help make a judgement for your team for the playoffs.

I get V Martinez for Millar -- Love this one...

I get D Ortiz for Clemens--really love this for a keeper.

I get J Frasor for Sexson --do not like this....I expect Sexon to back in full force next year....



Your v Wells trade was ok because a good SS is hard to find..although Wells is heating up.

I loved all the trades until you traded away VMart... I think he's a very valuable keeper at a thin position offensively, more so than Javy. Kent was an ok "get" for this year I guess, but I personally would have clung to VMart as a keeper. He's gonna be a monster at the catcher position in the years to come.

IMO VMart is just too young to keep over some of my other guys. We only keep 3 players. As great as VMart has been, hes only done it once. And I think I got 3 good players for him. Vlad and Oswalts are almost locks as keepers and I have Ortiz, Renterria and Rivera battling for the last spot. And I also dont think Sexson would have made the list, which is why I picked him up off ww for trade bait. Got me a legit closer at least.

I like your team and your trades also, especially for a 16-team league. Good trades. I might be a little nervous about my SP if I were you, but the potential is there. The guy with Wood, Peavy and Zito could be tough to beat if they all pitch to their potential.
