  1. The fact that you are asking this question is troubling. It's TROUT and always will be TROUT. BTW - Look at how Ramirez did in the 2nd half of last year. He is very overrated at the moment and regression is already taking place.
  2. I'm taking that deal in a heartbeat. Give me Vlad and MadBum and I'll be a happy camper for years to come.
  3. I'm a very big believer in Vlad, but Judge is proven at the MLB level and he has a ton of value on his own. To add Snell into a trade for Vlad is just not wise. If the other person in the deal is trying to get another starter, give them 1 of your other SPs, not Snell. You have a ton of SPs to pick from, I'm sure you can come to some kind of agreement. If not, you'll be fine keeping Judge and Snell. Sometimes, the best trades are the ones we don't make.
  4. The exact order you have them listed in.
  5. The biggest problem in keepers or dynasties is finding owners who will not check out when their season is going bad or team is struggling to grow. I also try to have a waitlist for my leagues which helps when it comes to replacing owners. It takes a lot of work on the part of a commish to keep and find great owners who don't bail at the first sign of struggle or a challenge. I actually talk all new owners over the phone prior to sending an invite. I have a great core group and we don't take just anyone. The group is only has strong as it's weakest owner and we all expect that every owner know what's best for their team and will compete day in and day out. I've been lucky to build a great core of managers over the years. Yes, we do replace some now and then, but we don't miss a beat. We've had some great turnaround stories as well.
  6. Buehler.... Buehler.... And it's not close.
  7. No I would NOT do that. I would either hang onto to both of them in a powerhouse lineup or try to trade them individually since that have serious name value.
  8. That is a huge potential change. As a commish myself, I would be looking closer at replacing owners who are not able to compete under the original keeper rules. I've been in many leagues over my 20+ years of playing fantasy sports. We've voted on minor tweaks over the years and there is nothing wrong with doing that. It's always to improve the league experience as a whole. A change this drastic would almost require a total redraft to be far to all. There are a ton of folks out there that like rebuilds, that is why I would try replace the most incompetent and least competitive owners, before I ever tried to make a change this big. I agree with another poster as well, that this tends to be more of a problem in keepers than a true dynasty. Good owners can turn teams around and still be competitive while doing so. I've seen it done 100s of times over the years.
  9. Acuna, Turner and Harper in that order. Blackmon is the oldest so I wouldn't be keeping him. Acuna has the highest trade value, but I would keep him. You might not get another chance at a talent like him for the next 3 years. I would keep and try to trade Harper, because his name and hype out weighs his actual fantasy impact. Turner supplies much needed steals which are harder and harder to come by every year. Hope that helps.
  10. This is great advice and I would not be in any hurry to trade Altuve for prospects. If I was to trade a player like Altuve, I want proven assets in return.
  11. I'm looking for a cash Yahoo keeper or dynasty league between $20 and $50 buy-in. I've got over 22 years experience in fantasy baseball. I prefer an auction draft if a draft is taking place. I'll play roto or H2H. If your league allows: tanking, quitting, and/or dead teams, please DO NOT ask me to join. I despise tankers and quitters more than anything. Please send me a direct message if you need someone.
  12. Daniel, I had just sent you an email after seeing your thread.. LOL
  13. PLEASE READ ALL INFORMATION before you respond. I have a 2nd year Yahoo MLB dynasty league and I need to replace one manager. We are a 12 team league with 2 divisions. There are no contracts you can keep all your players year to year. 6 teams make the playoffs. It's $30 per team. Payout is $240, $90, $30 to the top 3 teams. The team that wins consolation bracket receives a $15 discount (out of my pocket) the following season and the #1 overall pick in our 2 round rookie/free agent draft. Our roster is constructed as follows: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, UTL, SP, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, RP, RP, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL, DL, DL, DL, DL, NA, NA, NA, NA, NA We use the 5 NAs for our Minor Leagues. 8 FA acquisitions per week. It's a 6x6 with the following: R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS, QS, K, SV+H, ERA, WHIP, KK/BB We have great core group of managers. Many have played together for over 15 years in all fantasy sports. I have a dynasty league in MLB, NBA, and NFL that many of these owners are a part of. This is a very tight group that is very active on the wire, trades, and in our chat room. Example: Our NBA dynasty league has had 34 trades so far this season. Unreal.. The #1 rule in this league is NO TANKING and ALWAYS COMPETE. Anyone who is not setting their lineup and/or not competing 100% each and every day will be replaced. If this sounds like a league you would fit into, please let me know. I do require a phone call of all owners prior to getting an invite. I will reveal the roster after the phone call and prior to sending invite. This helps open the lines of communications and I've found it also weeds out the managers who are not serious. If you are tired of deadbeat owners and commissioners, and want to be a part of a league that is extremely competitive and respectful this might be for you.
  14. I have a 2nd year Yahoo MLB dynasty league and I am looking to add to my waitlist before Yahoo opens up MLB. We are a 12 team league with 2 divisions.

  15. I have a 2nd Year 12 team Yahoo Dynasty NBA league. This is a cash league, but no dues will be required to take over this team. While it's a young league many owners have played against each in other leagues for 10+ years and many play in my NFL and MLB dynasty leagues as well. We keep all our players year to year, no contacts. We have a 2 round rookie/fa draft to start each season. Below are the settings and rules. I need a veteran manager who is not afraid of a challenge to replace a tanking over who quit. The team is currently in 11th and owns 2 first round picks and 2 second round picks in next seasons two round rookie/FA draft. If you are interested message me.

Everyone will have something to compete for, even if you don't make the playoffs. League Information:Rules:1. ALWAYS COMPETE, ABSOLUTELY NO TANKING or you won't be invited back.2. Respect your fellow managers. Trash talk is perfectly fine, but let's not cross any lines. We are all adults.3. You must maintain the minimum number of players at each position to field a starting lineup. An example would be not carrying a Center when we require 1 center. Or not having a PF when we require 1 PF. I'm am not talking about players who have a day off or who are DTD. I'm talking about punting a position. We do not punt positions in this league.
  16. I'm still interviewing owners for this spot. The more folks I can talk to the better as we want to find the right fit for our league. Please let me know if you are interested. If filled I can add you to a waitlist as well.
  17. No dues will be required for the rest of this season. Just take over and compete each and every day.
