Re: Just Got Offered

Before it was a horrible trade. Now it's a tempting trade that's still bad. It's tempting to get the best player in the deal (Braun), but you're giving away three very valuable players for one superstar and some scraps. Too high a price.

Re: how did i do?

It's defensible on value -- you've taken on risk, but the upgrade from BJ to Stanton (assuming he comes back healthy before too long) is arguably worth the downgrade from Greinke to Iwakuma. But I don't see how it improves your team. With Goldy, E5, Upton the younger, Longo, and (so far, at least) C...

Marte for Peavy

Guy is loaded in pitching (also has Yu and Kershaw) but struggling in SBs. Is a Marte for Peavy offer reasonable? Which side would you want?

Re: Post your completed trades!

Made two trades with the Giants fan in my league: 1) Traded Greinke and Pence for Samardzija and Goldschmidt. Made this trade in the first week before Greinke's first start. Even without Greinke's injury, I'm happy with how this worked out. 2) Traded Halladay and Sandoval for Medlen and R. Zimmerman...

Trading hitting for pitching

Grey, or anyone: I'm leading the league in hitting, thanks to a hot starts by Machado, Goldschmidt, Marte, and Choo. I've traded Pence, Greinke, Halladay, and Sandoval for Goldy, Zimmerman, Samardzija, and Medlen (two different trades), but my SPs are still looking pretty weak. The trade partner I'm...

Re: Felix/Goldschmidt for Moore/Votto

I wouldn't be so quick to trade Felix for Moore. Pitchers are notorious for not reaching their potential, either because of injury or because of unpredictable failures to develop. What Felix gives you now is basically what Moore might give you if he achieves his best-case outcome, and I wouldn't wan...

Re: Kendrick + Dee Gordon for Samardzija?

Kyle or Howie? Either way, I say take Samardzija.

Re: Big trade, is it fair for both?

Again, with the caveat that it's really hard to evaluate big deals like this, I like it for you. Votto and Harper are top-tier talents, and they're well worth losing Upton for. I feel like the SP trade is a bit of a push. Headley vs. Sandoval isn't too big of a difference -- both carry risk but for ...

Re: loshe and bailey for gallardo

I'm not crazy about either trade, but I slightly prefer the first. Zimmerman's a safer target than Gallardo, but your pitching staff would be too depleted if you lost Bailey, Miller, and Hughes. Bailey and Hughes have both been unlucky with wins, but they're giving you Quality Starts, at least.
