Hebrew Hammer...

Postby IowaCubs » Wed Jun 11, 2008 7:07 am

I own Braun real cheap-like in my NL Only Keeper league. "I KNNNOOW," you say a la Craig Ferguson. Rather than boring you with the nuances of my league and my team, just know that I'm in the lead by 14 points and don't need his offense anymore.

Since it's a keeper league, you should know that Braun is $4 (my prized holdover from last year), and if you've ever played Keeper league NL Only fbb, you'll know that for my leaguemates, this Braun bargain is sorta the same effect a NKOTB concert is for adolecent girls. (NKOTB's still Hangin' Tough, right??)

I need a starting pitcher that I can use to walk away with the money this year. Step by Step, what's the absolute best I can ask for in return for Braun as far as NL Only pitchers?
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.

Webb, J. Santana or Peavy. Just be aware of Peavy's lingering 'bow issues.

If you get less than Santana, you've been had.

OT, Actually, I don't know how Craig Ferguson talks.

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 agree with Grey. If you are trading an elite hitter you need to go after not just an elite pitcher, but the best of the best. Even then, I wouldn't do it.

I can understand the reluctance to trade him, but the only reason I can afford to do it is because my offense couldn't possibly get any better. I could afford to improve my batting average and steals, but I traded for Winn, Pierre and Helton to take care of that over the past two weeks. My biggest need is pitching, where a top tier starter could mean the difference between winning by 20 points or winning by 10.

I'm just in a league with my best friend who is in 2nd place. Running up the score is preferred.
