Fantasy Baseball Trade Thread
So I pulled off my first big trade of the year less than a week into the season.
It's a keeper league where you can keep 10 players and no restriction on how many times you can keep a player.
I traded Dustin Pedroia and Adam Wainwright for Ryan Braun, Ryan Roberts, and Ervin Santana.
Scoring Categories are as follows:
Hitters - R's, HR's, RBI's, SB's, OBP
Pitchers - K's, W's, SV's, ERA, WHIP
Here is my current roster:
C - Matt Wieters
1B - Albert Pujols
2B - Ryan Roberts
3B - David Wright
SS - Starlin Castro
OF - Jay Bruce
OF - Shane Victorino
OF - Ryan Braun
UT - Carlos Pena
UT - Justin Morneau
BN - Jesus Montero - DH
BN - Edwin Encarnacion - 1B/3B
BN - Brett Gardner - OF
BN - Cameron Maybin - OF
BN - Logan Morrison - OF
BN - Austin Jackson - OF
DL - Brian Roberts - 2B
SP - Gavin Floyd, Ervin Santana, Matt Cain, Matt Latos, Zack Greinke, Jordan Zimmermann, Max Scherzer, John Danks, Add/Drop Starter based on Matchups
RP - Jason Motte, Matt Capps, Brett Myers

I would like to add a few more starters and am hoping that I can use some of my bench guys to do so.
Depending on how they do this year Montero, Maybin, Morrison could all have pretty good value in a keeper league.

I've had a few trades. In one league where I only had 1 closer I was able to trade Leake for Street soon after the draft.
In another keeper league I realized that I was way behind on keeper value going into the draft. I was 4th from the bottom, probably because I won the last two years and in order to do that I decided to become much more focused on winning that year than having keepers this year. I ended up trading Kemp ($38 to keep next year) for Beltre ($14 to keep) and Moustakas ($9) for Belt ($4). I may have overpaid on both accounts, but time will tell. I have Tulo ($43) and Grienke ($22) that I can trade later for keepers.

Was offered Jered Weaver and Nick Markakis for Shane Victorino. I'm desperate for SBs, but I pulled the trigger on that one without thinking twice.

I've done three trades so far....
Carlos Beltran for Encarnacion and Boesch
Miguel Cabrera and Drew Stubbs for Braun and Beltre
Jurrjens and Boesch for Zobrist
Here's my current team...
P Jonathan Sanchez
P Mike Adams
I'm feelin' good about it. I'm trying to figure out a trade that I can send Molina somewhere along with Sanchez or Lohse to get another awesome SP.
