Trade Continuation

Postby Ryan Beariot » Tue Apr 20, 2010 7:28 pm

So I'm gonna copy paste a lot of what I had from before, but this time things are changing slightly. Grey weighed in on this before, but that's when I was trying to grab Ellsbury (before I realized that upgrading at 2nd is a lot better plan than trying to get better OF)

what follows is my team in an AL-only 8 team keeper league. 3 keepers per year, plus your 3 minor leaguers.


C Kurt Suzuki
1b Justin Morneau
2b Alberto Callaspo
3b Evan Longoria
SS Elvis Andrus
OF1 Nelson Cruz
OF2 Jose Guillen
OF3 Nick Swisher
U Franklin Guttierez
BN Sean Rodriguez
BN Reid Brignac
BN Casey Kotchman
BN Scott Podsednik
BN Chris Davis

SP1 Matt Garza
SP2 Gio Gonzalez
SP3 Jon Lester
SP4 Shaun Marcum
SP5 Brett Anderson
RP1 Fernando Rodney
RP2 Joakim Soria
RP3 Jon Rauch
RP4 Matt Thornton
DL Brian Fuentes

Minors: Tyler Flowers (C - CWS), Adeiny Hechaverria (SS-Tor), Matt Moore (SP-Tam)

I like my team, things look good. As of now (knock on wood), I'm in 1st place, but there's always ways to improve (2nd base notably)

My friend wants/needs closers. His team follows.

The Shorties:

C Jeff Mathis
1b Michael Cuddyer
2b Jose Lopez
3b A Rod
SS Jeter
OF1 Jeremy Hermida
OF2 Adam Jones
OF3 Jason Kubel
U Hideki Matsui
BN Dioner Navarro
BN Curtis Granderson
BN Jacoby Ellsbury

SP Phil Hughes
SP Jered Weaver
SP Justin Masterson
SP Brian Matusz
SP Jeff Niemann
SP Ervin Santana
RP Brandon League
RP Grant Balfour
RP Jeremy Bonderman
RP Matt Guerrier
RP Jensen Lewis

Minors: Jesus Montero (C-Nyy), Desmond Jennings (OF-Tam), Lonnie Chisenhall (3b-Cle)

so he wants a closer and he says he's willing to overpay. I was thinking of trying to ask for Jose Lopez for Fuentes and Rodney. Am I overpaying here? Is he? Originally we were going to do Ellsbury for Podsednik and Rodney (Grey's advice) but I figure spelling Pods in there every now and then could count for steals.

Basically, would getting Jose Lopez or Ellsbury be a better plan? Thanks!

I'd want Ellsbury.

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.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
