  1. 12 Team H2H Mixed League - Auction Keeper$300 Cap - 6x6 (OPS/HLD)YOU CAN RE-SIGN EXPIRING CONTRACTS AT 1.5x THE CURRENT VALUE FOR UP TO 5 YEARS I won the championship the last 3 years....but always looking to improve my squad. I have a chance to get make what I think is an improvement here: I give: James Paxton ($8 re-sign up to 5 years then up to 5 more at $12 after that) for Josh Donaldson ($3 2 year deal then up to 5 more at $5) First....I'm not in love with Paxton on the Yankees....I'm afraid he's gonna get crushed in the AL East, plus he's always been a health risk. This is my attempt at a buy low on Donaldson...and hoping the Cardinals did their due diligence and getting off the TOR turf will keep him healthy. Before that he was a 1st-2nd rounder and is still just 33. I have the arms to do the deal...but also have a lot of bats. So do i do it?
  2. My Paxton/Adell for K. Davis/Archer

    Sorry gotta bump. I don't think this deal will be on the table much longer. My sentimentality for Jo Adell has me holding off. But Paxton is gonna fall apart right? Help a brotha....

I'm replacing him with Archer, who I think can be as good as Paxton or better for the Bucs. So essentially I see this as a $9 Jo Adell (he'll be $9 by the time he's called up to MLB) for $18 Khris Davis. I'm trying to keep winning now....so I think it's a no brainer for one of the best power bats in the league....even though Jo Adell went to my high school. So do i do it?
  4. Huge Trade for JoRam & Yelich

    Any other takes?
  5. Huge Trade for JoRam & Yelich

    Are you not an Eloy believer? Or Albies?
  6. Huge Trade for JoRam & Yelich

    Team roster didnt display. <a href="https://ibb.co/ifm3Uq"><img src="https://preview.ibb.co/eSsz2A/24-B71-E58-F6-A9-451-B-8-BAC-C1-B7805-EE52-E.png" alt="24-B71-E58-F6-A9-451-B-8-BAC-C1-B7805-EE52-E" border="0"></a>

    I'm in a tough spot...as I have an opportunity to re-sign him from 1-5 years at $11. Dude will either be a killer bargain or i'll have to take a buyout (1/2 total contract length). So much of me wants to believe and sign him for 5 years, but the cautious side of me is pumping the brakes. Every year we seems to have these boom or bust types that turn it on for 1/2 a season. Dominic Brown, Luke Voit, the list goes on. Imma need to see Madame Cleo and get her hot take.

I have a chance to snag Jose Ramirez and Christian Yelich...but I would have to give up a TON to get them, and I'm not sure it's worth it. Here's the deal...with some thoughts and my roster below that: Eloy Jimenez ($2 3 year deal then re-sign up to 5 more years at $3 Ozzie Albies ($3 re-sign up to 5 years, then 5 more at $5) Blake Snell ($12 re-sign up to 5 years, then 5 more at $18) Adalberto Mondesi ($11 re-sign up to 5 years, then 5 more at $17) for Jose Ramirez ($2 4 year deal then re-sign up to 5 more years at $3) Christian Yelich $2 3 year deal then re-sign up to 5 more years at $3) First...I HATE giving up Eloy...hate it, and that is the main thing holding me up. The other issues are that my main 2B would be gone, and while Jo Ram has eligibility this year...that was mainly due to Donaldson joining the team. On the plus side, I checked into Albies' hard contact and I don't see him doing more than .270 / 15 / 15 on the regular...his huge first half was a bit of a mirage, and the 2nd half dropoff was massive. Mondesi is a huge regression candidate as well...although with a ton of upside. All that said i'm quite torn. It is A LOT to give up, but also nets me 2 MVP candidates. Thoughts?
  9. James Paxton 2019 Outlook

    As a Paxton owner I hate this trade....worst case landing spot other than COL or ARI. AL East in a jet stream park.
  10. Hoping to be very involved on the board this year as this was my 2018 "go to" for pickups and I won both leagues. Would like to offer some payback help. Wasn't sure if there was some etiquette as to when we can start discussing players for 2019 outlooks.
  11. Michael Brantley 2018 Outlook

    Dude got 630 PA's...that is a HUGE number, and while he had a .309 AVG, his counting stats were pretty meh for me. 17 HR. 12 SB's. 76 RBI and 89 runs. I have the chance to keep him for $11 next year in an OPS league and with his injury history and the more productive players I have I don't see myself doing it. I'll likely try to trade him to someone looking to buy high.
  12. Luke Voit 2018 Outlook

    No idea if he even has PT next year or if the Yanks make an acquisition....but the dude has apparently had something click for him. I can keep him for $3 and intend to do so and will gladly buy him out for $2 if he busts. He won me my H2H singlehandedly.

    Not only that...but Buck knows he has to manufacture runs. This quote made me grab him and i'm better for it: "Showalter asked if Jonathan Villar has a green light to steal said - "What's greener than green?"
  14. Jonathan Villar 2018 Outlook

    This dude along with Mallex have shot me to the top of the SB category and he's chipping in with power as well. Needed PT, confidence and a change of scenery. Camden suits him even in that garbage lineup.
