mega deal!

RyanFTW 01/19/12 02:17 PM

Seriously. Holy balls, dude. That was bigger than the Pujols/Posey deal last year.

SgtSmegma 01/19/12 02:18 PM

Would rather be on the Kemp side x10000000

RyanFTW 01/19/12 02:19 PM

This is all going to hinge on how well Lawrie does next year. If Lawrie is anything like his tiny sample size last year, Scott is going to win this trade HARD.

Kemp would be like a 50 plus dollar player at auction this year. Getting him for 32 is such a ridiculous steal unless he absolutely tanks

Thomas Balkcom 01/19/12 02:22 PM

Kemp's salary made it really hard to trade him, but I needed the SP. I hated giving up Lawrie, but it's what got the deal done.

pretty big deal, wow

Scott Weber 01/19/12 02:24 PM

the risk i took here is that i made last year's 2nd place team better and mine worse from a points standpoint. long term i think it's in my best interests though. i have so many ace like pitchers.

Thomas Balkcom 01/19/12 02:25 PM

I've got enough prospects to where I can stand to a take long term hit, gotta make a run at the commish this year!

Yeah but you were also way over salary and weren't going to be able to keep Halladay in addition to your other top players without shedding a lot of salary

i wasn't really that far over, i just hadn't made any cuts yet. i was actually planning on keeping almost everyone and entering the draft with only $20 or so to spend for 5 or 6 spots.

RyanFTW 01/19/12 02:31 PM

Man I am going to have to nab an ace in free agency. If anyone has any offers for one, let me know.

Yeah I suppose so. Puts you in a much better position for the draft anyway

RyanFTW 01/19/12 02:34 PM

Also: I have Pand75, Weebs and Thomas on my Fangraphs Fantasy Baseball Twitter List. Anyone else on twitter I can add?

Not sure how many ace caliber pitchers will be available
