    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    Gallen after seeing your roster. I have to ask how many keeper players are protected each year? Second of all if you can I would defintly start poaching young players and cutting your losses on some of the long term dead weight on your roster.
    2006 Redzone mock Draftee's- 1(st) Daniel Bard(redsox), 1(st sup)( Jordan Walden (Angels), 2(nd) rd.- Zach Britton(Orioles), 3(rd) Blair Erickson(Cardinals), 3(rd) Tim Norton( Yankees),(cuz its a Tim Hortons thing

    Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory... lasts forever.

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    It is currently 6 players but a vote will be made to see if it can go to 8 players. What players do you like for my keepers or what players you suggest I try to poach?

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    I dropped Ryan Freel and Moisis Alou for Melky Cabrera and Chris Ray. Hopefully that helps my team plus I activated Hamilton from the Dl. This is my new roster.

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    I dropped David Ross and added Chad Qualls. I think that is a upgrade.

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    I think you have a great roster. Here are the players I would keep.
    Roy Oswalt
    Aaron Harang
    Adam Dunn
    Derrick Turnbow
    Josh Hamilton
    Brandon Phillips

    if they let you keep 8 then my 2 more are:
    Ryan Zimmerman
    Derek Jeter

    I may be a little Reds biased.

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    Thanks for the advice GoReds33. Its hard to keep a balnce of piching and offense plus seeing who might be available in draft. How did you decide between Phillips over Zimmerman and Jeter? I am interested in getting all the info I can get. Thanks.

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    I think that Phillips has years of tremendous production ahead of him. I decided against Jeter because I think his stolen base numbers will go down. I really like Ryan Zimmerman, but an equal replacment is not tremendously hard to find. He's an above average hitter with descent power numbers. Sounds like about 150 MLB players. Honestly, I would like to keep your whole roster. I think Zimmerman and Hamilton might be interchangable. I think that Hamilton's power will be above average, as will Zimmermans overall hitting. I just gave hamilton the benefit of the doubt because he plays for the Reds. Rickie Weeks has had a horrible year. I think he would be fairly easy to get next year. Jeter and Phillips I think will have similar seasons. The only difference, is that Jeter will do that on the way down.

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    This is my current roster. I added Scott Baker and cut kas. See what you or anyone thinks of the roster now. Should Baker be considered as a keeper?

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    Baker was dominant last night huh? Gosh, he's a beast. I would try to keep him. Any news on how many you will be able to keep?

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    Jeter, Phillips, Dunn, Harang, Oswalt, Zimmerman/Ray

    If your in a 14 team league Jeter will be a huge keeper. There isn't any more than 4 or 5 shortstops better than he is. Plus a .325 average isn't easy to come by with decent power and RBIs. There Harang and Oswalt seem like musts because pitchers will be an even bigger priority in a large league like this. I'm usually against keeping a closer since its only one stat affected, but the 14 teams league makes me consider Ray pretty hard. Phillips and Dunn for obvious reasons. Phillips is your best fantasy position player I'd say. .280ish30/100/30 is beastly. I don't agree with Hamilton at all. You can't even guarantee me he's going to start for the Reds, plus stay healthy. Reds fans seem to be biased towards Hamilton in fantasy
