Good selections by all. Repeatedly, I would hope that a player would "slide through" only to see him picked up.

My strategy has always been, get the premium positions taken care of early: SS, 2B, C, starting pitching.

I did all of the above, except for SS. Somebody who shall remain nameless took Jeter, keeping me from having a bullet-proof draft. :evil: :evil: :evil:

to me

and 2 closers, but there will be plenty available after the others show their keepers...

I was wrong when I said the pickins would be slim. We each got 10 good players. Never had to scrape the bottom too much.

There were a lot of good players, since it was a 10-team league with both NL and AL players.

The dispersal had a clear shortage at SS and 3B. Very deep in starting pitching.

Sweet, now that its done, we can move on the to trading. For the new guys I have a lot of depth to deal if you want to supplement your new found rosters.

I have Derrek Lee, Carlos Lee, Bartlett, Blanks, Carlos Gonzalez, and Fowler as bats and Lackey, Billingsley, Happ, Feliz as SP, as well as Bell, Aardsma, and Franklin at closer.

Looking for a 2 for 1.

i guess that if you want to trade mr dopers... you should come to these 5 teams and propose a trade...

but nobody of us has CAPPS or BIXLER... Sorry

Right now, I don't think we can trade any player(s) except for those who are subject to the keeper roster.

I am going to be very active in trading, but have to wait for the open draft and final roster before dealing players, Barrys. Not sure how others look at this.

P.S. Cannot do a 2-for-1 in the current roster situation, since only 10 can be protected. Therefore, one of the guys obtained in a 2-1 would be lost, or somebody else off the roster would be lost.

I think that is the point, Bucfan. A 2-for-1 trade lets you upgrade the back end of your roster, should you feel the back end of your roster needs upgrading. So, for instance, Barry (hypothetically) feels that he has 15 viable keepers. He can afford to give up 5 good keepers. If you feel one or two of your guys are mediocre as far as keepers go, you could get 2 or 3 better players by giving Barry (or me!!!!) a true stud keeper (or some draft picks). However, you are right that if you are happy with your 10, it doesn't make sense to do 2-1 trades.

True ... but protecting only 10 means that I (and others) have too many holes to fill to wind up losing players from the present roster, and in the process lose a true stud (like Mauer or Herndandez). Just seems like a dubious strategy to me.

Bucfan, you are right that the strategy only makes sense if you feel that you only have 6 or 7 good keepers on your roster. In that case getting 2 or 3 for 1 makes sense, but if your happy with your 10 then it certainly doesn't work for you. Wow, this sounds a bit like NH's strategy the last two years, add quantity in trades.

You have to remember that with 120 players kept we are starting the draft in round 13 essentially. There won't be very many top players available at that point. Everyteam needs to maximize the quality of their 10 guys or they will be at a huge disadvantage before we even draft.

BBF, are we allowing pick trades too?
