PLEASE HELP!

Postby Ace Hakes » Mon Apr 26, 2010 9:04 am

OK, I need some help!

I am basically dominating the hitting categories. (I know its early.) I am 1st or 2nd in RUNS, RBI, HR, and SB. I am 3rd or 4th in average, but my team will come around. Anyway, our league is a SALARY LEAGUE! The CAP is around 104.00 and it is a 100% keeper league. I was offered Morneau (14 dollars) and Kershaw (.40 cents) for Pujols (16 dollars).

Would you do this? Pujols is just SO GOOD! But I need pitching!

Please let me know ASAP!

THANKS!

Yah, it is the BEST league of all time. (12 teams)

It is a 100% keeper league.

The players salaries are their REAL LIFE salaries. The team CAP is the average of ALL 30 MLB team's REAL salaries. It is actually MILLIONS, but I put it in dollars to make it easier to understand. Pujols is actually $16,000,000 in 2010 and all of our team caps are $104,000,000. Pujols is on the verge of signing a HUGE DEAL! So you have to take that into consideration since it is a keeper league. In this league A-Rod is a free agent since he makes somewhere near $32,000,000. People like Braun at $1,000,000, and Longoria at 950,000 are a steal in our league. Players that have GOOD & CHEAP contracts are the best! Morneau makes $14,000,000 from 2010-1013. So that is good. Pujols makes $16,000,000 in 2010 and 2011...and then will probably make like $35,000,000/plus a year after that. (Which is on the verge of him being a NON-KEEPER.) Who knows what he will make. Kershaw makes $400,000 because he is still in his first three years and making the league's minimum.

I will stop rambling...

Wow. That sounds like a crazy complicated league where ARod isn't even rosterable!

I think if you want to win this year, do the deal and worry about Pujols' contract later. If you don't think your team can compete this year, keep the Kershaw bargain.

And saying that the trade is "OK" is not good enough for me.

DONT YOU UNDERSTAND!

This league consist of 11 of my good friends. Losing to them is worse then getting my front two teeth pulled with a pair of pliers. And trading Pujols in a keeper league has to be justified.

PLEASE HELP!!!!

chlenko,

After you played in a league like this ONCE, you will NEVER go back to anything else. It actually not that hard. Players are drafted and paid whatever they get paid in real life. If they get injured, sorry, you are stuck with that salary ALL YEAR! You can drop him, but if you pick up someone, you better have the money.

Meh. Any fantasy league where A-Rod is un-rosterable has serious serious flaws.

Someone told me that if you post a trade question, and say Bettlegrey three times, he will come and help you out.

Bettlegrey...Bettlegrey...Bettlegrey...

Or maybe I was suppose to look into the mirror and say...

Greyman...Greyman...Greyman...

I forgot how to call upon him...

BUT GREY I NEED YOUR HELP!

Should I trade Pujols for Morneau/Kershaw? It is a 100% keeper league with a 104.00M team salary. Pujols make 16M in 2010 and 2011. After that he will sign a KILLER DEAL and probably make over 30M/PLUS A YEAR! Morneau is only 14M a year from 2010-2013. And Kershaw is only $400,000 this year. (They make what they make in real life.) And I am sure Kershaw will sign a cheap contract since he is still young.

LET ME KNOW!

I AM OUT!

I was unaware we were all sitting around waiting for Buddha to come down from the sky to drop his never-ending knowledge on us.

I'm with the camp of "a league has serious problems when ARod becomes unrosterable" but I still see now way you can trade away Pujols. Even if he becomes droppable in 2012 that's still 2 seasons of the greatest player in the league that you're bypassing.

Any league that thinks its being 'realistic' by attaching real-world dollar figures to players, but then implements a league-wide salary cap at the median of real-world payroll numbers is ignoring the basic failure (or triumph if you're a fan of the Yankees, Mets, Red Sox, Phillies, Cubs, Dodgers, or Angels) of Baseball's Economic system. Any league that tries to use these (player salary) numbers without an understanding of the basic inequalities that they are based on is a league that takes 'fantasy' far too literally.
