I'm in the market for cast offs as I have a few extra free keeper slots....if anyone had 8+ FPPG arms and has interest in dealing em for picks/prospects I'm willing to listen.

Or if anyone wants to deal quality arms in that 8-9 range I'm willing to pay extra......also willing to deal bat prospects for pitching prospect if anyone wants to go with the safer option in their farm system, I'm open to taking on risk.

Update: Price is alive! And either I overvalue my stars or other teams overvalue their prospects (probably me overvaluing my squad) so Ima remove my entire team from the trading block. I'm always up for trade discussions, b/c trades are fun, but I am going to step away from the ledge, for now.

Usually it's a combination. People have usually done more research on and follow their players more.

The price for youth in this league is astronomical.

braby21
03-04-2017, 02:25 PM
Oh for sure. That wasn't a knock at any team/owner in particular, just more broadcasting that with Price potentially being ok I'm going to hold off selling the farm, unless somebody really wants to go hard at a JD, etc. and give up some real pieces.

braby21
04-15-2017, 12:43 PM
I seem to have the touch of death, fantasy baseball wise anyways, so I'm not so sure that this league is meant to be for me.

If anybody knows of another owner that would like to take over a team in the league, I think it's time for me to move on.

In the meantime, we should maybe put all the good O's, Red Sox, & Yankees on my squad as an experiment...

Habspatrol
04-15-2017, 12:45 PM
???? I'm confused. Why are you looking to leave?

You've always seemed like such a solid manager.

braby21
04-15-2017, 12:54 PM
I hate bailing... but either I'm the worst manager in the L, or unluckiest, or maybe both... and maybe another owner would have better luck.

The way the league is set up, once you're out of it, you're out for years. 95% of teams are kept, there's no cap on the amount of years you can keep keepers, it's like the 50's reverse clause in MLB.

UWHabs
04-15-2017, 01:17 PM
The hard part is that the league is a lot like real life, where you can just get hit with all the injuries, and you can make a deal that looks like an outright steal only to have it end up blowing up in your face. I mean, it sucks now, with Turner. Donaldson, and Price all out due to injury, and I'm sure you wish that Dyson was hurt as he's rocking that 33 ERA. But things can turn around.

The way the league is set up, though, you really have to look at it like paying a fee to play the game - you're not really in it to make money. Yeah, as it stands now, we're essentially subsidizing Montana for each of the next few years, but your team has some good pieces and if you can catch a break, you could definitely get back into the top crowd. But if you're just looking at the league as a chance to make money, then yeah, it's a very tough one to be in. It also doesn't help that normally you make money in fantasy sports by preying on stupid opponents, and this league is definitely lacking in that.

braby21
04-15-2017, 01:35 PM
It's really not like real life though, guys aren't signed for lifetime contracts and team budgets aren't unlimited. In real life at least there are FA's every year, the Rule-5 draft, etc.

Not about money at all btw.

Definitely... obviously it's great to win and make money, but I look at it as the cost to play in a fun and competitive league.

And this year actually looks like it could set up to be the most competitive year, by a mile. Sure, Montana is almost certainly going to win by a fairly wide margin again.... but there are probably 6 or more teams that have a legit chance at 2nd... and if things go sideways for Monty... perhaps 1st.

I know it's disheartening to have a bunch of injuries... especially early on. But I hope you tough it out. Like I said, you've always been a good manager and it would suck to lose you.

I always look at putting guys on the DL as an opportunity to add some potential "hidden gems." Of course you usually end up adding guys that don't do anything. In past years I've added guys like JD Martinez, Kuechel, Chris Carter, , Charlie Blackmon, Pomeranz and others who either had a good year or went on to be studs when I had injuries.

Good luck either way.

Yeah, I've been impressed with some of the moves you've made Braby, and have really enjoyed having you in the league. I know injuries can be pretty disheartening, and what happened with Jose Fernandez obviously sucks in every way imaginable. This league isn't easy, and that's part of what makes it so fun. But despite how deep it is, as others have said there are always good options available on the wire or in trade.

I like your strategy overall, and really hope you reconsider.

Habspatrol
04-15-2017, 03:18 PM
Good point re Jose Fernandez. I had him in the FI keeper league and that legitimately made me consider dropping out. I ended up sticking around but it was incredibly disheartening.

braby21
04-15-2017, 04:51 PM
You all make great points. It comes down to (seemingly) being continually disappointed & wondering why I put myself through this haha. I will certainly play the season out, I would definitely not just bail on the league. I have paid for the season & I'm not looking for my money back, so that's all good! I just wanted to reach out incase anybody comes across a potential owner during the season that would be a good fit for the league.

In the meantime, I'm looking to re-tool. Not blow the team up, but I have some good pieces that could help a contending team that I'm willing to move, like Lorenzo Cain for example. Let's talk!

Deckie007
04-15-2017, 05:35 PM

Just a few basic ones. But yeah, nice to see BABIP, FIP, wOBA and a few others in there. Thames with his sexy .549 wOBA which he'll totally keep up with the rest of the season (at least, as long as he keeps playing the Reds. I think he's gotten 34 points against them in 5 games)

I guess we don't really have an in-season thread going. Just a reminder to people to pay attention to their minor leaguer's games as they start no longer being minors eligible. Cuthbert, Leon, and Wisler have passed the limits and can't be stashed anymore. Especially for bullpen arms, those games can sneak up on you fast.
