I am looking to perhaps trade Billy Wagner or Bobby Jenks for a starting pitcher. Any offers?

Well, I fully expect Rivera to get back on track and have another stellar year, and Oliver Perez pitched GREAT today and certainly has ability to have a good year as well.

I gotta be honest, even with healthy Figgins and Colon, I don't like this trade for you.
Colon is pitching a shutout through 5 innings today in his first game of the season... :D

I'm amazed DeJesus actually had trade value.

Konerko and Berkman have both had slow starts, but expect both to pick up sometime.

Kent is another ageless wonder. I like him.

Good deal for both of you, since I know Nerv wanted more RP.

Xio's New Trade Block (and I'm still looking to deal):

OF Jason Bay
2B Dan Uggla
RP David Weathers
SP Nate Robertson
SP Dave Bush
OF Curtis Granderson
OF Gary Sheffield (buy now, he's dirt cheap, lol)

I am looking to upgrade my starting rotation. I would also be interested in adding another closer (then again, who wouldn't?).

There is nothing wrong with wishing no serious harm to a player for the benefit of your fantasy team, just like you can wish for a big day from a rival player, but your team still wins. It's all good./

Alright, I did this last year too . . . it's time for me to name the best and worst pick of each round of the draft. Remember, this is in terms of value, current production, and everything else.

http://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo.com/b1/45769/draftresults?drafttab=round

Let us begin with . . .

Best Pick of Each Round:
1 - Alex Rodriguez (MaxV)
2 - Vladimir Guerrero (yoda)
3 - Justin Morneau (yoda)
4 - Roy Oswalt (Xio)
5 - Jake Peavy (Nerv)
6 - Felix Hernandez (MaxV)
7 - Cole Hamels (D-Unit)
8 - Jonathan Papelbon (D-Unit)
9 - C.C. Sabathia (yoda)
10 - Bobby Jenks (Xio)
11 - Jeff Kent (Nerv)
12 - Dan Haren (toonster)
13 - Jim Thome (Xio)
14 - Erik Bedard (djp)
15 - Barry Bonds (DHVF) and Ian Kinsler (djp) - tie
16 - Tough to pick a winner, I will reluctantly go with my pick of Joe Borowski (Xio)
17 - Daniel Cabrera (djp)
18 - Another tough call, let's say Michael Cuddyer (bsaza) . . . ?
19 - All pretty bad picks . . . let's say Bartolo Colon (Nerv) just for fun
20 - Russ Martin (P-L)
21 - Adrian Gonzalez (bsaza)
22 - Eric Byrnes (Nerv)
23 - I will reluctantly say its Michael Barrett (toonster)
24 - Dave Bush (Xio) - At the very least, I have toonster envious

Worst Picks:

1 - David Wright (Yoda) - not a bad pick, just the worst of the best
2 - Francisco Rodriguez (D-Unit) - Hard to justify taking a closer this high
3 - Andruw Jones (djp)
4 - Aaron Harang (D-Unit)
5 - Jermaine Dye (P-L)
6 - Jered Weaver (D-Unit)
7 - Carlos Delgado (Nerv)
8 - Juan Pierre (toonster)
9 - Julio Lugo (Nerv)
10 - Troy Tulowitzki (D-Unit) - here's a shocker
11 - Chris Shelton (D-Unit) - bigger shocker
12 - Eric Gagne (P-L) - hige injury concern, better closers available at the time
13 - Roger Clemens (MaxV)
14 - Tadahito Iguchi (bsaza)
15 - Chien-Ming Wang (yoda) - Only taken because yoda wanted another Asian player, lol
16 - Mark Prior (Nerv)
17 - Pedro Martinez (DHVF)
18 - Josh Johnson (toonster)
19 - Kei Igawa (yoda) - see #15
20 - Juan Rivera (D-Unit)
21 - Cliff Lee (Xio) - D'Oh!
22 - Homer Bailey (P-L)
23 - Kerry Wood (Nerv)
24 - Yadier Molina (yoda) - what was believed to be a joke pick, yoda kept him for several weeks, lol

Thoughts?

MaxV
04-23-2007, 04:57 PM
Yeah, my Clemens pick was pretty terrible. I thought that I could put him on DL, I didn't know that players acctually have to be on DL.

I was also going to say that my 8th round pick Rickey Weeks needs mention among the best, but Pappelbon is clearly the biggest steal there.

D-Unit
04-23-2007, 05:18 PM

Before the season I was willing to trade you Cole Hamels and Valverde for Nick Swisher and Earvin Santana... You kept saying Hamels is on the same level as Santana and Chris Young who you already have... and Valverde is not a good RP. Right now it looks like you would've robbed me... as Hamels and Valverde are my highest fantasy point players at SP and RP...

So you can't say you didn't have a chance. You should've known better being a Philly's fan. *jab jab* :D

I had typed in Weeks at first . . . I reconsidered, though if Papelbon hadn't switched back to closer, I doubt he would have been the top pick of that round.

Well what do you know? A day after the big trade Nerv and I pulled off, Konerko and Berkman, the two struggling hitters in the deal, both hit homers, lol

And how about Dan Uggla! Another homer!


EDIT: Damn it, Konerko homered twice! lol

On another fantasy team, I have Swisher, Fielder, and Konerko. I also have Blalock. Got 7 HR between them. These guys haven't really produced much lately, so I need them to do this again over the course of the week. 14 total HR between those guys in the next week is not a terrible expectation...

I hate making offers straight out to people. In my experience with fantasy sports, people tend to get offended when they get offered deals that they don't like, or that they think they are getting the bad end of.

It's hard to make an offer if you don't know what the other person is looking for, or without knowing their willingness to trade a certain player.

Drafting and Trading is what makes fantasy sports imo.

I definately am an aggressive trader. I win some and lose some. But never look back. Some people say that they are not afraid to make deals... but yeah... only if they are getting the clear advantage. LOL. No one is afraid to make those, duh. I'll take chances where others won't.

I've said this before, and I'll say it again. I am willing to move any player on my team, provided you offer me quality back. I don't want to get 3 crappy players for Adam Dunn. However, if you give me a pretty good OF(Pat Burrell) and a decent pitcher on top, I'd consider it. My team is pretty balanced overall, so I can't say anything about specific needs.

I say you need a closer. And you have too many OF and 1B, to the point where you can't start them all at once, and it ends up hurting you.

I still don't see it as a bad deal for you if Harden doesn't succeed. Zumaya and Buehrle are arguably no better right now than the guys you added afterwards. Soriano is probably gonna get you some saves, and Zumaya will be lucky to save two more all year.

Good game. Lincecum has very nice potential, but Hamels is on another level. Maybe next time.

Good Lord, I almost traded Hamels to Bsaza for Nick Swisher, but he rejected me. His reasoning was that Hamels was one the same level as Earvin Santana and Chris Young and didn't see where he was getting an upgrade.

Xio got me on the Thome for Francisco Cordero trade though.

bsaza2358
05-07-2007, 09:17 AM
D, I recall you asked for Swisher and a decent pitcher for Hamels. It wasn't a straight deal. Besides, hitters are generally more consistent than pitchers. Yes, Cole Hamels would have helped me a lot this year, but Swisher and my hitters have yet to come around. In hindsight, I should have made the deal, but who foresaw the awful home/road splits on Santana and Chris Young going in the crapper?

Must say, baseball is the funnest fantasy sport to play because it actually takes more skill and less luck. haha. It was another fun season. Glad to take the Championship Trophy away from Xio. Second place left a bitter taste in my mouth last season and I was determined to get it back. Two Championships in 3 seasons and 1 second place finish.... Can I say, "Dynasty"? :D

Here are the final standings:

1. Black Sox (D-Unit) 13315.50 pts
2. Xiomera 12847.50 pts - Biggest Threat. Extremely hard to finish off.
3. MaxV 12053.17 pts - Surprising New Comer rose to the challenge.
4. Holy Diver (Nerv) 10813.00 pts - Give him credit for staying active.
5. D H V F 10630.50 pts - Made a rapid rise in the rankings in the last 2 months going from last to 5th.
6. P-L 10554.83 pts - The Ultimate Conservative, actually tried to make moves to go for the gusto this season.
7. Augustana (DJP) 10472.33 pts - Dropped hard after a promising start. Was my post draft favorite to win it all.
8. Cleveland Steamer Co (bsaza) 9626.83 pts - New Comer who said he could take us all down. Eh. Wrong answer.
9. toonsternation 9422.83 pts - Disappeared after the first 2 months.
10. Funky Butt Lovers (Yoda) 8662.33 pts - Couldn't have done this without him. ;)

damn i really just wish i wouldn't have gone that month or so without setting my lineup, it really killed me in the long run of things. Atleast I was able to make that climb back to the top half of the rankings though. Congrats D, I am in awe of your greatness.

That HUGE slump at the end of the 1st half killed me.

I had a good 2nd half, but by then the margin was too much to overcome.
