Trade Ideas

Postby greatbambino95 » Mon Apr 23, 2012 5:16 pm

Hey everyone, this is my first time doing fantasy baseball and I could a lot of help so don't hold back on telling me how it is. It's a one year, yahoo weekly head-to-head fantasy league with these positions for starting players each day

C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, Util, Util, SP, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL

The scoring is based off of the winner of the batter and pitcher categories

Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Total Bases (TB), Batting Average (AVG)

Pitchers Stat Categories: Wins (W), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Quality Starts (QS)

Thinking of making a trade, this is the team I have so far

C --empty--
1B Billy Butler (KC - 1B)
2B Aaron Hill (Ari - 2B)
3B Brett Lawrie (Tor - 3B)
SS J.J. Hardy (Bal - SS)
OF Ryan Braun (Mil - OF)
OF Carlos Beltran (StL - OF)
OF Carl Crawford (Bos - OF)DL
Util Adam Lind (Tor - 1B)
Util Kevin Youkilis (Bos - 1B,3B)
SP John Danks (CWS - SP)
SP Ricky Romero (Tor - SP)
SP CC Sabathia (NYY - SP)
SP Jonathon Niese (NYM - SP)
RP Francisco Rodriguez (Mil - RP)
RP Alexi Ogando (Tex - SP,RP)
P Adam Wainwright (StL - SP)
P Clayton Kershaw (LAD - SP)
BN Adam Jones (Bal - OF)
BN Torii Hunter (LAA - OF)
BN Mark Reynolds (Bal - 1B,3B)
DL Chase Utley (Phi - 2B)DL
BN Dan Haren (LAA - SP)
BN Edwin Jackson (Was - SP)
BN James Shields (TB - SP)

This is the other guy owner's team

C Alex Avila (Det - C)
1B Joey Votto (Cin - 1B)
2B Robinson Cano (NYY - 2B)
3B Alex Rodriguez (NYY - 3B)
SS Jimmy Rollins (Phi - SS)
OF Hunter Pence (Phi - OF)
OF Michael Bourn (Atl - OF)
OF Carlos Lee (Hou - 1B,OF)
Util David Ortiz (Bos - Util)
Util Melky Cabrera (SF - OF)
SP Roy Halladay (Phi - SP)
SP Zack Greinke (Mil - SP)
SP Yovani Gallardo (Mil - SP)
SP Madison Bumgarner (SF - SP)
RP John Axford (Mil - RP)
RP Javy Guerra (LAD - RP)
P J.J. Putz (Ari - RP)
P Jake Peavy (CWS - SP)
BN Ichiro Suzuki (Sea - OF)
BN Delmon Young (Det - OF)
BN Brandon League (Sea - RP)
BN Anibal Sanchez (Mia - SP)
BN Mark Buehrle (Mia - SP)
DL Doug Fister (Det - SP)DL

He has so far offered me Avila and Lee for Kershaw (which I turned down) and Young and Gallardo for Crawford and Kershaw (which I turned down again). Does anybody see any viable trades? I was thinking of offering Braun and Reynolds for Cano and someone else. The past two weeks I have been behind in batting % and saves categories.

Freddie Freeman is also available in FA, he hasn't started well but he is projected to be a good hitter this year, and Marco Estrada (SP,RP) is also available in FA and could provide a boost to my saves category.

Good job on turning those trades down! Your outfield really isnt that bad. Considering Crawford should be coming back from injury soon. Adam Jones should be in your starting line up all the time; dudes a beast. Picking up Freeman sounds great, hes been struggling but hes in a great lineup and should get it together here sooner rather then later
