I hate how unreasonable people are. I ask some guy if Cain is available (he has Cain, Price, Weaver, Darvish and another top 10 pitcher, forget who) and if he is send me a trade later.

His offer? JJ Hardy, Dan Uggla and Stanton for Cain and Phillips. Like wow So they want my whole offence for Cain?

(14 team league)
How is this for me:

Heyward, Johnson (O's RP) and Westbrook (STL SP)

For Francoeur, Hanrahan (PIT RP) and Capuano (LAD SP)

His pitching sucks but his OF is stacked with Beltran, Gardner, Maybin, Hunter and Heyward. With Berkman going down for me I am desperate to get a deal done.

If Chapman is available in your leagues, grab him. Doubt he's available though but he's been named closer. 22.1 IP, 0 ER, 0.63 WHIP. I grabbed him in 2 leagues a month ago, should have in all 4 lol.

God damn. My pitchers have just had the wheels fall off recently in terms of ERA and I've lost a lot of ground because of it. Luckily, I should be able to climb relatively quickly in both ERA and Ks, but man, this was rough

After rejecting this saying its way too much he just sent me another. Montero and Cain for Uggla, Stanton and Romero.. The funny part is, I have Napoli so what do I do with Montero? So trading a top-tier 2B, top-tier OF and a pitcher who is 5-1 for Cain. Ya.. right...

What should I possibly try to do? My pitching is absolutely awful.

SP Ian Kennedy
SP Roy Halladay
RP Joel Hanrahan

-----
Giant drop off

RP/SP Ross Detwiler
P Neftali Feliz
P Mark Buehrle
P Ivan Nova
P Tim Hudson
P R.A Dickey
DL Chris Carpenter

My offense for reference

C Carlos Ruiz
1B Albert Pujols
2B Ben Zobrist
3B Edwin Encarnacion
SS J.J. Hardy
OF Andrew McCutchen
OF Corey Hart
OF Andy Dirks (for now, he's been on fire)
Util Mike Napoli (for now since Ruiz has been better)
Util Aramis Ramirez
Bench Brennan Boesch
Bench Torii Hunter
DL Brett Gardner

Luckily my offense has kept me afloat, or I would easily be last. (I'm 8th of 12)

Keeper league.

Do I trade Justin Upton and John Danks for Stanton, Middlebrooks and Chris Carpenter (out till August likely)? I can auto keep Middlebrooks since he's a rookie. In my mind, Giancarlo and Upton are pretty interchangeable, and I'd move Danks for Middlebrooks any day (Danks rides my bench). Thoughts on this?

Apparently Henry Rodriguez is out as closer. Burnett seems like the smarter pickup amongst Nats closer given he's a lefty plus has stellar numbers. Clippard is another guy in the running who "wants it bad" but doubtful he gets more chances than Burnett.

First time this year I bench Avila and input Lucroy in search for offense.

First AB for Avila...boom...3 run shot. FML.

I benched him in another league for JP Arencibia.

I actually traded for Weiters a few weeks ago and then turned around and sold Arencibia cheap. Bit me in the ass so far, hes swinging a hot bat.

Just looking through some trades I've made this year (I always like to check every now and then to see how I made out) and man. One deal I gave up Weeks, A Gon and Lynn for Uggla and Hamels. Wow...

Strikeout's slightly down, walks slightly up and giving up slightly more HR. There is nothing really wrong with Doc, just their team sucks and age is catching up.

Just got offered Chris Sale, Kendrys Morales, Justin Upton for Doc Holladay and Michael Young. Leaning towards declination.

Are you being offered Doc and Young or you currently have them? I'd probably do it if you got offered Doc, I have faith he will turn it around. But if you currently have him, I wouldn't. Young hasn't been the best this month but I have faith he will turn it back around. He's 1B, 2B and 3B eligible too. But if you got offered the 2 it does open up a roster spot, as well, so I'd check out who is available first.

Did a deal yesterday, how did I make out..

I get: A rod
I give up: Romero and Youkilis

I'm not sure if Arod still got it or not or if he still can be a 30 homerun hitter. But, as a Jays fan, Romero seems to have no control this year at all. Ive watched every game he's pitched and he seems to struggle to even throw first pitch strikes.

I think Youkilis is reaching mediocre fantasy status. So a Romero for ARod transaction seems pretty good in your favour. Youkilis still has the opportunity to rake, but being injured half the time really limits the amount of good he can do. I have no doubt in my mind that Romero will bounce back. If this is him struggling, he certainly won't hurt you on his bad days. All in all, you made out good.

Just did this in a keeper league.

Capuano
Kubel
2nd round pick

Masterson
Reynolds (DL)
3rd round pick

Trading away short term gain for some long term success. Capuano has been lights out so I figure now is the best time to find some value. Masterson as been pretty terrible thus far, I'm hoping for a resurgence. If Reynolds remains healthy, knock on wood, I made out with flying colours.

Oh ya, I think he will eventually get his control back in check but it seemed like a decent deal to pull off considering Youk just came back from injury. I was leaning towards no considering Arod has struggled too but then he hit 2 homeruns last night. Changed my mind quick

So you get Masterson? I think it's alright. He hasn't performed like he was hyped yet but I suppose he had a good run last year. Worth the risk. Reynolds is iffy. Consistent homerun threat but will bring your AVG down. But I'd take that power for a dip in AVG any day.

3.00 combined ERA and 1.10 combined WHIP for my pitchers in 6 starts so far this week even with Darvish's terrible outing dragging them down but only 1 win

Not as much as perceived. Most stat guys seen this downfall coming. Huge velocity drop, control problems and a dwindling SO ratio (rise early in season). His offspeed stuff is still good enough to get strikeouts but his control and lack of velocity will make him a pitcher in the 20 range IMO.

It's a good thing the league is pts based and doesn't count avg/ops/etc.

3rd Base is such a hard position to fill this year. Seems to be extremely shallow. I have Bautista in my keeper league, but I think yahoo will take away his 3rd base eligibility next year so I had to find someone before I get handcuffed. Reynolds on the DL was the best option available.

There's some talent. Wright, Bautista, Reynolds, Young, Freese, ARod, Youkilis, Encarnacion, HanRam...
