John, I say do the trade for Lawrie and then try and flip Santana for some better pitching. That way you upgrade your offense and you can probably trade Santana for a decent pitcher to help your rotation.

Also, you may want to think about picking up Trevor Bauer when he comes up for the Diamondbacks.

I mean you were getting a steal, but they should not veto a trade because one party is dumb.

I'm still in the race in my keeper league, and need to make a move for pitching. I made an initial offer of Middlebrooks, Duda, and Worley for Jarrod Parker and Cliff Lee. THis team is pretty much out of the race and just looking to build for next year at this point.

He said he liked the offer but shot me this counter offer...

I get...

Cliff Lee
Jarrod Parker
Carlos Gonzalez

He gets...

Will Middlebrooks
Allen Craig
Vance Worley
Ian Kennedy


CarGo is going to cost a lot of auction dollars to keep ($47)...whereas I will be able to keep Craig got $6. Am I too in love with Craig and the cheap keeper status? Would I be giving up on Kennedy too soon?

I have Moustakas at 3rd so losing Middlebrooks isn't too bad for me....though I was counting on using Craig in my IF spot if I traded him. Now I'd have to use either Swisher or Duda. This trade would also only leave me with 9 pitchers still, when i was hoping to acquire the one extra pitcher to help with my K/W's a little bit.

I'd say do it. A lot of Craig's fantasy value comes from his 2B eligibility which he's likely not going to have next year. He's still good at 1B/OF, but there's a ton more depth at those positions to replace his production. CarGo helps you in every category (assuming you play standard 5 cats or a close variation) and in a keeper league will be insanely valuable.

We ended up settling on

I send:
Will Middlebrooks
Ian Kennedy
Vance Worley

I get:
Cliff Lee
Yu Darvish
Jarrod Parker


I think I end up winning this deal for the season, but he has the long term advantage as I def won't be keeping Lee ($42), and Darvish will be iffy ($24). He'll get to keep Middlebrooks for $5, Kennedy for $3 and Worley for I think $9. Not super excited about giving up on Kennedy but I wanna win this year and this yaer just hasn't been that good for him. This should bolster my W's and K's, bring some relief to ERA, and probably be an even trade off in WHIP when it's all said and done.

who do you guys think I should start... here is my OF

OF: Trout
OF: Kemp
OF: Granderson
UTIL: A. Gonzalez
UTIL: Choo
BENCH: Ellsbury

Ells coming back but facing Hellickson, Price, Shield @ TB. Choo has been hot and scoring tons of runs from lead off for CLE and he's facing Toronto pitching with Romero starting Friday. I'm leaning towards giving Ells a game or 2 to get in the groove since the league is weekly h2h and I don't want to fall too far behind on avg/runs/etc. What do you guys think?

Keep your OF like it is until you know Ellsbury is healthy. He will probably start out slow. Hopefully he'll pick it up by the time Choo slows down.

that's what I figured I should do. especially facing TB at Tampa. Just have a feeling Ellsbury is going to go off while on the bench haha.
