I'm a Trade Whore

Postby Scarlett Johansson » Thu Aug 21, 2008 10:02 am

I am trying to keep my offense consistent, and despise my players:

12 team H2H (5x5) Keeper..

Receive:
A-Rod
Carlos Quentin
BJ Upton

Give up ( A LOT):
Prince Fielder (inconsistent)
Brian Roberts (I hate)
Nick Markakis
Cole Hamels (hate)
Alfonso Soriano (hate)

I know it's a lot, but the way I see it, A-Rod will provide the best numbers all around of anyone, Upton will replace Roberts' speed with a little more power (maybe), and Carlos Quentin has been on a tear all year and even more so in August.

Then I can keep these players along with Jimmy Rollins (hate), or trade Rollins in the off-season (likely)

This guy wouldn't take Rollins.

I have a playoff spot clinched and feel A-rod and quentin can carry my team more than the other ones in a h2h format.

A. Am I fucking insane?
B. Should I make this trade?
C. If I can trade Rollins in the off-season for a power bat to replace Fielder, should I do it?
D. Why am I a trading whore?

THANKS

I actually hate Al-So, Roberts, Rollins and am iffy on Hamels, yet I still wouldn't do this trade. It's too much, especially in a keeper. You should trade Rollins for a power bat in the offseason.

BTW, Thanks for putting Scarlett Johansson and whore on the same page, our Google search results just went through the roof.

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.

ha ha ha ha ha sorry.

What about A-rod and Upton for Markakis/Fielder/Roberts? Still too much? I think so...

No, I was being serious. No reason to apologize. Now thousands of horny guys are going to be invading Razzball. (As supposed to the hundreds that were here already.)

Actually, I like that trade for Arod and Upton. Especially in a keeper league. BJ (now BJ has been written in the Scarlett + whore thread) will have way more value than Roberts. Markakis and Fielder is a bit much for Arod, but I'd still want Arod for five years instead of Fielder. Markakis might end up screwing you (yes, now this thread has "screwing you"), but it's not that risky of a trade.

hahahahahah well-played with the references.

Thanks for the advice... I was thinking about taking it, but Upton worries me since he hasn't stolen many bases recently.

Probably worth mentioning Asdrubal, too.
