hello everyone so where at the All Star break and just wondering how my teams looks.
i am in a 14 team deep mixed keeper league(2nd year keep 4). It is a h2h 5x5 standard cats. Currently I am in 4th place, 1.5 games behind first. just some more insight on the league, 5th and 6th are currently 10 games behind me, and three teams have already thrown in the towel by gutting their team for future draft picks. So the league is down to 11 for 6 playoff spots.
So far this year i made 7 trades, i think most was for the better.
May 5th- traded lance lynn and 2013 5th round for Craig Kimbrel and 2013 12th round.
May 14th- traded Ivan Nova for Kenley Jansen.
May 16th- traded James Mcdonald for JJ Putz(this was only bad trade i think but remember at the time we were not even 2 months into the season)
May 22nd- traded Ichiro and JJ Putz for Jason Heyward and Jemile weeks.
June 24th- Traded quentin for maybin(kind of a pointless trade)
June 28th- traded Smyly, league, maybin, 2013 1st and 2nd round for m.holliday, AJ Burnett, H.Bell 2013 12th and 23rd round.
July 9th- traded 2013 3rd and 6th round for James Mcdonald and 2013 12th and 18th round.(only reason i paid so high is youk just went for a 4th and 5th, quintanna went for a 5th and 6th, cahill went for a 4th and 6th)
so heres what my team looks like,
3b- alvarez/chipper(hotter hitter at time, there have been times where i had to have both in the lineup)
of- harper, holliday, heyward
ult(2)- cespedes, a.soriano
b- JD Martinez
SP- F. Hernandez, Sale, Hanson, Lincecum, Burnett, MCdonald, Minor(weak link right now but has been doing decent last couple of starts)
RP- Chapman, kimbrel, jansen, bell
What do you guys think? IS this finally my year??? WHIR just leave a link
