The morning after- restructure via trades (how did I do)?

Postby chaple » Thu Mar 10, 2005 4:50 pm


Did a yahoo public H2H, 5x5, 12 team mixed draft last night; tried not to focus on filling needs (invevitably still did to some extent) and more on value.

Had a busy day, pulling off a few trades. Have a look & comment on what you think should be done next:

Drafted Pending trade approval

c Posada
1b Teixeira
2b Soriano -------------> Loretta :-I
ss Rollins
3b - none - ------------> A Ramirez :-)
of C Lee --------------> Edmonds :-I
of Wilkinson
of Ibanez
dh Bonds --------------> Pujols :-)!!!!!!

other Cuddyer
other - none - -------------> Hidalgo

(I had one other draft "mistake", C Wilson, which I will drop and look to waiver wire when it opens)

SP AJ Burnett ----------> none / gone :-(
SP J Smoltz -------------> J Vazquez :-(
SP L Hernandez
SP Od Perez
SP Radke
SP J Weaver
SP Leiber
SP Pineiro

RP Lidge
RP Wagner --------------> none / gone :-(
RP Hawkins

Net / net, I had a hole at 3B and a surplus of 2nd / 3rd tier pithcers; I filled the hole at 3B and had some upgrades

Gave up: Soriano, Bonds, C. Lee, Wagner, AJ Burnett and Smoltz

Got: Pujols, Edmonds, A Ramirez, Loretta, plus Vasquez & Higaldo

I recognize that there are some serious minuses in the pitching area; I still think the ones remaining, although none are super studs, they'll do fine.

Most importantly, I get Big Albert.

What do you think?

Thanks for the input....

Personally I would not have traded Bonds Burnett Smoltz or Soriano. Yes you get a 3B and Pujols... but at what price? Losing a huge walk leader, a possible strikeout threat and a top 2B

I think you did well on trades. I'm not a big soriano fan, so the fall off to Loretta isn't overcomeable, though there is a big one. I think with a little skillful work on your staff you should do well.
