Trade Damon for what?

Look at my kick ass team! Look at my sorry ass team! Could someone look at my team and tell me what they think is right/wrong?

Trade Damon for what?

Postby ekrase » Mon May 18, 2009 7:18 am

Grey,
I saw your recommendation about trading Damon while he's on fire. I'd sure be interested in your thoughts about what I should be looking to get for him. Or, perhaps I should hang on to him. I'm not sure. I do have a surplus of talent in the OF. I'm tempted to go after a starting pitcher, but I've been more or less breaking even on pitching so far. I should also mention here that I just got Kemp last week (for Holliday + Kendrick) and am thus unsure of how he'll impact my team. Also, at some point Brandon Webb will come off the DL and hopefully be better than average. Any thoughts here?

Damon should get you an F-Her type of starter. For your team it would make sense. You're stacked at outfielder and your starting pitching has some holes.

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.
Thanks!

ekrase,

I just traded Damon & Fuentes for Ichiro, hoping he would be a long-term upgrade in the Avg and SB depts for me. I also have 47 closers, so it wasn't a huge deal for me to part with Fuentes. If Damon keeps it up, I might have given up a bit much, but I was going to have to make a 2-for-1 move at some point with Webb coming off the DL in a month or so. Grey didn't seem to like the deal, but what does he know? :P

Just my 2c.
