post #856 of 1312
Replied on league wall. Cliff's notes: I essentially traded Aaron Hill for Alexei Ramirez. That's called "buying low," and it wins leagues! Hell, why would Steve drop a guy like Ramirez when he's essentially Hill + 15 SBs and multiple eligibility? Also, Ramirez started off exactly the same last year: cold as ice. Also:

you just dropped an ace for Russel Branyan. Who you'll drop in two weeks when A-Rod comes back. Someone with great waiver priority just guaranteed himself 1st place for the second half of the season. =/

Ok... well, as long as you have a reason. It looks like a relative statistical wash AVG-wise right now, but Hill looks to be having a breakout year and is swinging a MUCH hotter bat right now. But you are in last place, and therefore desperate to make some moves. Honestly, I hope it doesn't work out for either of you. But if it had to work out for someone, I'd rather it was you. I just dropped an "ace" because he's out six to eight weeks, and then who knows after that? It was a risky pickup and it didn't pan out. I'm pulling the plug and moving on. If someone wants to hang on to Webb until July, and then take a flyer that he's going to feel good throwing, be my guest. He has a throwing shoulder strain and fluid in the rotator joint. I don't like it so I dropped him. An ace that doesn't pitch for at least one and possibly two+ more months is not someone I want to hang on to at the moment. And as for who I will be dropping for A-rod... i guess you'll just have to see.

Yeah you nailed it with "you're in last place." I also don't have any use for "hot bats" right now since I have solid starters at every position, so my move's made with an eye for depth and future trades. Hill's hot but he won't start over Cano or Howard so I dropped him. Didn't think to trade, that one's on me.

You're right about Webb but I would've held out until A-Rod becomes active, then stashed him on the DL. That's me though, considering I need to build depth and make some moves for pitching.

I'll take him. He should be rounding back into shape by the playoffs (our playoffs) and I needed more pitching depth. I'm happy to stash him until then for the chance at adding an ace-level pitcher down the stretch.

Street's decline has been sad. He was one of the best closers in all of baseball, and now he's fighting with a chump like Corpas for the Colorado closing job.

A great year from Ramirez is nowhere near a sure thing. Only one full season in the majors. IMHO There's a 50/50 chance he'll suck. I will find another unheralded player or combination of them who will give me the same numbers.

Remember this is an unlimited add/drop league. UNwise to be wed to any certain player.

A-Rod. Webb, and Hamels will be hurt on and off all season.

Are you ready to lose your first game?

It cracks me up that I was able to snag Pujols, A-Rod, Webb, Peavy, and Hamels.
How does that even happen?

My pitching is turning out awesome!

I think I will win this year.

This is what happens when Slim has to leave his house over an hour early to get to work on time because they shut down all the carpool lanes for a month. Didn't get to check my bench this morning. Still 9 minutes late.

That's why it's great to have a home office. Except when I'm traveling.
