Postby DWright5 » Sun May 28, 2006 9:27 pm

I'm in 2nd place in a 16-team H2H yahoo! league with 6x6 + OPS and holds and i have already made a series of trades

1) Traded Berkman, Vazquez, Scott Baker
Miguel Cabrera, Barry Zito, John Lackey
-Trade has turned out unbelievably, Berkman hasn't done much since i dumped him

2) Traded Barry Zito
Rafael Furcal and Kevin Millwood
-Furcal has been great since i got him

3) Traded Jeremy Hermida, Edwin Encarnacion, and John Lieber
Derrick Turnbow and Morgan Ensberg

4) Traded Jhonny Peralta
Dontrelle Willis

5) Traded Justin Verlander and Preston Wilson
Rich Harden and Chad Tracy

my team right now looks like this:

C Damian Miller (time to drop him??)
1B Todd Helton (has to heat up)
2B Chase Utley
SS Rafael Furcal
3B Morgan Ensberg
OF Bobby Abreu
OF Miguel Cabrera
OF Aaron Rowand
Util Bill Hall
Util Chad Tracy
Bench Joey Gathright
DL Jose Guillen

P BJ Ryan
P Derrick Turnbow
P Mike Gonzalez
P Aaron Heilman
P Braden Looper
P Scott Linebrink
P Luis Vizcaino
P Dontrelle Willis
P CC Sabathia
P Rich Harden
P John Lackey
P Kevin Millwood
P Tim Hudson

i really like where my team is and i have been sweeping all 6 pitching categories lately and my hitting has been good but the power has been weak lately. should i wait for the power to come (which i know it will) or do i go out and make another trade for a big bat.... also where else could i look in a trade.. thanks for the help and leave a link, ill help out

1. I love all 4 trades you made, you won big on all of them.

2. hang on to Dontrelle, no matter what the marlins say he will be traded before the deadline.

3. As far as dropping Miller your catcher, in a 16 team league im sure theres not a great upgrade chillin on the WW

4. For a 16 team league your entire team is very very well rounded, I see a lot of 2nd and 3rd round guys from my 10 team draft on your squad, which means youve made schrewd moves, Id have to say unless whoever is in 1st in your league has a stacked team you should be dominating the standings this year.

and thanks for the comment on mine.

I really think u shud wait before making some more moves... that is a pretty good team for a 16-team league. Those trades are steals and all work out amazingly well for you. SOme of those other managers are really dumb. About Miller i would only drop him if theres a descent catcher on waivers.. but in a 16 team league i doubt it..

Thanks 4 the help on mine!!

BTW 2 quick questions.

Verlander is available in my league... u think thatll be a good pickup to help my pitching. ANd 2 shud i offer A.JOnes and Arroyo for Pedro for another Ace or am i overpaying, but Pedros a beast

Thanks for helping me.

That third trade you made was your best trade because you opened up another roster spot and got two solid players in Turnbow and Ensberg. For a 16-team league, you did very well and like what the others said, just be patient with your team. Once the weather is better all over the country, your team will heat up.

You have a stacked lineup and I agree with the sentiment to wait. Once the summer heats up your team will be enfuego. Great trades you made there too. Very nice. Thanks for helping me.

You have made nice trades overall. You should definately contend for the top. If there is one area I would improve in it would be starting pitching, not that its all that bad, its just its probably where you will find the least amount of production on your team. ... p?t=210256

I'm going to echo what everyone said: GREAT TRADES!

That looks like a very good team for a 16-teamer. I like your team, maybe you could find a solid catcher because I don't like Miller at all. Are there any FA options?

Nice job and team. There really isnt much to say really. If I were you, I would look to trade closers for SPs, but Im a big fan of puntin saves in H2H leagues with 5x5 or more, especially 6x6 leagues. Oh, and in our league, Rowand is available.
