  1. The rosters are 9 position player starters (C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF, UTIL) 8 pitchers, 6 bench. 3 IL Spots, 1 NA spot for a minor leaguer. Team C (traded deGrom for Chavis & Addell) but is only 14.5 games out of a playoff spot with 13 weeks to play. There is a cap on the amount of player adds you can make per week, which is set at 3. After the trade, his only pitcher in the top 260 players is Gerit Cole (at 92). deGrom was his next best pitcher at an overall rank of 261. His pitching was not deep, and it sure isnt now. His starting lineup would now be : C - Sanchez, 1B - Hosmer, 2B - LaStella, 3B - Lemahieu, SS - Bogaerts, OF - JD Martinez, Michael Brantley, Trey Mancini, UTIL - Paul deJong. He would have to fill in Chavis over Hosmer, LaStella, or Lemahieu
  2. You need to relax with the sarcasm. Obviously i'm not wiretapping people in my league but a little investigation and conversation with the involved parties can sometimes reveal certain details that show the motive of the trades. If I didn't care or was ignorant I wouldn't be posting in this forum for opinions. In general, the league is extremely active and competitive, so lopsided trades are not the norm. These trades have raised suspicion amongst members of the league. It isn't my job as a commissioner to babysit people and the deals they make. I am merely asking if these trades are lopsided ENOUGH to warrant me either delaying the trade and investigating it or completely vetoing them.
  3. I am a firm believer in not vetoing trades just because I may think they are "dumb." As long as there is no collusion, generally, I don't even think twice about approving trades. However, 2 trades were accepted in my league last night that I found suspicious. Team A and Team C are brothers. Team B is a close friend of Team A and Team C. This league is a 10 team head to head categories keeper league. Team A is in last place (6 teams make playoffs) Team B is in 7th place. Team C is in 9th place. The first trade is : Team A receives Gleyber Torres (Round 15 keeper) and Martin Perez (Round 15 keeper). Team B receives Chris Sale (Cannot be kept) and Carlos Correa (Round 14). The second trade is : Team B receives Jacob deGrom (Round 5 keeper) Team A receives Michael Chavis (Round 15 keeper) and Jo Addell (Round 15 keeper). Team A receives Gleyber Torres & Martin Perez Team B receives Chris Sale, Jacob deGrom & Carlos Correa Team C receives Michael Chavis and Jo Addell It isnt even June and they seem to just be dumping all their top players to Team B for "keepers" who they likely arent even going to keep.
  4. Soo hes already blown those power projections out of the water...what do you project as a realistic ROS statline after his scorching hot start? Is 25 bombs a possibility or has he been lucky
  5. **UPDATE** The offer has changed to : His Jacob deGrom & Sean Doolittle for My Joey Gallo & Chris Paddack The innings limit on Paddack scares me and I will probably not keep Paddack anyway (we can only keep 3 MLB players) so I think I like this trade as well. Would you do this? WHIR!
  6. I would start by benching Gordon for Marte lol. Marte has been hot lately and Gordon (other than the game he hit a GS) has really cooled off. Your SP is extremely deep but you only have a few closers.....i'd look to move a SP to get a top of the line RP in return
  7. I believe Pablo is the best pitcher on the Marlin's staff. I'd take him over all of these guys. 2nd would be Strahm for me. Help here?
  8. Cole appears to have found his groove so there is no way Dejong can net you him at this point. You MIGHT be able to get Strasburg back for him but I doubt it. Thats where I would start though. If he wont bite on that, I would be okay with trading Dejong for Boyd. help here?
  9. I would definitely swap Barnes for Swarzak. Do NOT pick up Hansel Robles. I watched a ton of him last year as a Met's fan and he is hot GARBAGE. The first time you see him point to a walk off HR as if its an infield fly you'll want to throw your remote through your TV. help here?
  10. Team in sig. Currently in 1st place but always looking to improve. I was offered His : Jacob deGrom & Sean Doolittle for My : Joey Gallo & German Marquez I am leaning towards accepting this because I have Abreu/Votto/Lowe as 1B and would fill in Mancini or Jose Martinez in my OF slot to replace Gallo regularly along side JD Martinez and Acuna. Vlad JR will serve as my UTIL when he heats up. I think the improvement of deGrom from Marquez plus bolstering my RP with Doolittle outweighs the loss of Gallo. What are your thoughts? Leave a link and I WHIR ASAP!
  11. thanks for the help on mine. Your lineup was obviously constructed around Judge so losing him was a big loss. Your best depth is at 1B/3B with Yandy, Dozier, Donaldson so, like the Darin said, I would try and package a corner infielder and a pitcher if you have to. For now I would wait and see how the Judge injury plays out.
  12. Current Roster in Sig. Categories are : BA, HR, RBI, R, SB, OPS, XBH // K, ERA, WHIP, W, SV, H, QS My : Fernando Tatis Jr (2020 Round 18 keep) and Kris Bryant (Not eligible to be kept) for His Vlad Gurerro Jr (2020 Round 18 keep) and Ozzie Albies (2020 Round 14 keep) Every consecutive year a player is kept, you lose 2 rounds of value for that player. For ex, if I made this trade and kept Vlad Jr next year at 18, 2021 he would be 16, then 2022 14, etc. I feel Vlad is the better prospect although Tatis Jr has had the better year thus far (I know - very limited). I would move Baez to 3B, Albies to 2B, keep Correa at SS, and then play Vlad at Util. I could try and move Correa now that I have IF depth. Would you make this trade? Thank you and I WHIR ASAP!
  13. What the hell was Cooper doing with the ball in RF? Terribly indecisive costing Richards a run
  14. Thanks for the help on mine. When is your draft? Id pay close attention to how Altuve LOOKS in spring (not necessarily stats). If you feel he looks healthy and is making hard contact/working deep counts then id take him. If not, id take Bryant assuming you arent losing a first round pick for keeping him. Im not certain he will out produce Goldy this year, but id want guarenteed shares of him in the future for sure. Goldy would be my 3rd option here, although I still love him and and optimistic about his move to STL. He has great stats in that ballpark.
  15. Thanks for the help on mine. I see you went pretty much full upside on your pitching staff. As long as a couple of those guys hit you are playoff bound for sure. If not, make sure youre active on that WW!
