Do I need this many steals?

Postby mbelsky » Tue Jul 14, 2009 10:23 am

I know I could use some speed, but should I go ahead and do this trade? Am I sacrificing too much power? Is it worth it?

I give up N. Cruz & C. Quentin
I get Alexei Ramirez & Holliday

Here's my team:

Thanks!

Not crazy about that trade for you.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Same team -

I need saves...I'm panicking a bit and it's hard to pick up people off the WW here.

Is it dumb to trade away Holliday for Choo-Choo and Rafael Soriano?

Dumb to bother trading for saves? I am going to lose points there really soon...

I'm trying to acquire Victor Martinez and I got an interesting offer just now:

I receive V-Mart & S. Drew
I give Quentin & Cain

I'm really tempted, even though the trade makes no sense logically. I would then have 3 SS's and 2 Catchers. Do you think I should even bother trying to acquire V-Mart (I have Ianetta). I think if I acquire Drew I'd need to give up Alexei ... or just not take Drew.

If I trade Cain (or another starter) I can pick up Ubaldo off of waivers. And I'm ahead of pace anyway.

Here is my team:

http://games.espn.go.com/flb/clubhouse?leagueId=115532&teamId=1

And his team:

http://games.espn.go.com/flb/clubhouse?leagueId=115532&teamId=3&seasonId=2009

Any suggestions on how to alter that trade more to my liking?

Thanks again...

Do you need more average? Doesn't seem to me that you do. It also doesn't sound like you need to make that trade with your glut of SSs.

You're saying replacing Iannetta with V-mart would be mostly for average ... and that it's not really worth it for my team, yes? So your opinion is to not bother with V-mart?

I could try like ... Quentin for V-Mart. Would that be worthwhile?

Yeah, that's what I'm saying and it's not really necessary on your team.
