Deadline deals

Postby tripler0425 » Wed Aug 23, 2017 7:54 am

Sunday was our trade deadline and I was sitting in 6th place with a chance to win some money if I can finish in the top 3. My SP has been my problem all year and I made some deals to help in that area for the rest of the year and for next year. Here are the deals that I made at the deadline.

Trade 1: I traded Harper $13 (Can't keep for next year) and got Bautista $6.50
Trade 2: I traded Kimbrel $2.50, Bumgarner $9.50, Gray $.50 and Avisail Garcia $.50 and got Britton $2, Stroman $1.25, Dickerson $.50 and Degrom $6.
Trade 3: I traded Upton $5, Severino $.50 and Gordon $3.50 and got Scherzer $9, Rosario $.50 and Ceasar Hernandez $.50.

Going forward I now have Scherzer and Degrom as a nice 1-2 punch to help down the stretch. We can only keep 3 players each year and right now I am thinking of keeping Scherzer, Degrom and Bellinger for next year. Scherzer and Degrom will go for more than they are right now and can be my aces. How did I do with the trades and does this set me up nicely for next year?
Here is my team in a 11 team roto league. Here are the scoring categories for the year. H, HR, OBP, R, RBI, SB, ERA, KD9, QS, SV+HD, W, WHIP. Our salary cap for the auction part of the draft was $60 and then we did a snake draft for the reserves who are all $.50. Now that the season starts our salary cap is $75.
C: Gomes $.50
1B: Abreu $10.50
2B: Merrifield $3
3B: Escobar $.50
SS: Alex Bregman $5
MI: Javier Baez $.50
CI: Moustakas $.75
OF: Yelich $3.75, Bryant $16, Thames $.50 Schwarber $.50
U: DeJong $.50
SP: Scherzer $9, Bauer $1.25, Ray $.50, Snell $1, Maeda $.50

Bautista's garbage, don't understand 1st trade

2nd trade is okay, you trade decent keepers for decent keepers, pretty fair

3rd trade sounds fine if Scherzer helps you get in top 3 and Amed turns out solid

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!

As far as trade 1 I don't think Harper will be back until the playoffs and no one was offering anything for him. I know Bautista isn't great but it at least gives me some production to remain in the hunt.
