Performance review

Postby knighttown » Mon Jun 23, 2008 5:12 pm

Looking for objective opinions on my 2008 trading record.

In-(RP) JJ Putz
Out-(3B) Mike Lowell
When- Mid April
Why-Had "punted" saves and was looking to deal depth for a bonafide closer. Was dead last in saves and had A-Rod at 3B and dependable Pronk/Helton/Butler to play 1B and CI. Was offered Hoffman and responded with Putz. He also had Nathan and perhaps I should have shot for the moon.
Result- Losing Lowell and having Hafner and Butler suck ass put me so far behind in hitting I had to unload 3 Grade A- starting pitchers as discussed later.

In- (SS) Jimmy Rollins
Out- (SP) Tim Hudson, (RP) Brian Wilson, (SS) Orlando Cabrera
When- May 1
Why- Actually, a shot in the dark. I was dominating pitching and was looking at who had bad pitching and put together this deal. Of course, O-Cab was my starting SS and like Pork Burn says, this is never acceptable.
Result- Rollins has been dissappointing but I'd do it again. I'm still dominating pitching and my SB's are near the top. Wilson was a classic sell high.

In- (1B) Prince Fielder, (OF) Adam Dunn, (SP) Chad Gaudin
Out- (SP) Felix Hernandez, (SP) Dan Haren, (OF) Willy Tavares
When- Mid May
Why- Had a massive lead in pitching but was dead last in hitting. Had offered some big trades (Hernandez++ for hanley or Berkman, Hamels for Miggy) etc. when this rolled across my desk. Thought about dicking around and counter offering but just pulled the trigger.
Result- A win-win. I checked today and we are 1-2 in the league in the past 30 days. He may have "won" the trade but my team is better than it was.
SP- Haren, DeLarosa, Sanchez, Nolasco, Price, E. Santana, Cueto, Buchholz
RP- Soriano, Marmol, Dotel
C- Wieters
CI-Morneau, Wright, Votto
OF- Kemp, BJ Upton, G. Jones, A. Jones, N. Cruz, Fowler
MI-A. Ramirez, Stewart, Asdrubal
U-Ortiz or Berkman

All the trades are solid for you. The first one was crappy luck. 2nd is Rollins for Hudson. You win that. The third is a push but I'd want hitting 75% over pitching in a trade. Plus Fielder was a great Buy Low at the time.

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.

I guess your completely loaded in pitching. I like those trades except for Putz, but like Grey said its just bad luck. Oh and Putz if you're reading this...if i were you id watch my back.
