Jay Bruce Stock Rising?

Postby IowaCubs » Thu Jul 03, 2008 8:58 am

I just made a feeler trade offer last night to see what would happen after Bruce's big 2-hr game. I offered Bruce for Doumit and the guy accepted. I'm still in shock, because last week I couldn't get any reaction from leaguemates.

Has his stock risen overnight? I own him in another league and I'm wondering what sorts of deals I could make for him.
14 team h2h keeper (keep 5), $101 FAAB budget. C,1B,2B,SS,3B,MI,CI,U,5SP,2RP... It's standard 5x5, but we use quality starts instead of wins. I currently have $1 left in FAAB money.

Doumit's a solid deal for him. I doubt you could get much more, but the allure of some players is sometimes hard to judge until you offer the trade.

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.

God, I would love to get Doumit for Bruce. I'm jumping on this opportunity to offer Bruce along with Edi Volquez & Guillen for Hart & a disabled Marcum.

Alright now I want jump in because I thought I was continuing to just sit on Bruce. Since I picked up Hairston to cover Tulo my need for a shortstop is not so dire. Yet I would like to do something with Bruce. Someone in my league just picked up Hardy (hours before Tulo went down) and Peralta - don't ask me why. Would you try and move Bruce for a Hardy or Peralta. The guy also has Frenchy, Winn, and Cantu on the bench.

If you can get Hardy for Bruce I'd do that, especially if you're set at OF and need SS help. Just remember to ride the streaks...
