Katie would endorse keeping Zobrist


Yeah. Braun and Zobrist. I got so many ridiculous offers for those 2. I'm not trading either of them!!!!!!!

I feel better now.

The classy thing to do would be to reject those offers so that the other owners won't sit and wonder whether you are still evaluating them or not.

Hamilton and Wainwright for Braun wasn't a bad initial offer though.

So if I hadn't been on Fleaflicker in weeks & wasn't aware that you proposed a trade, how is that not being classy?

Katie, I think he is just trying to bust your balls at this point.

Yeah well, I doubt it. I'm 95% sure at this point that I want out of BNFL anyway.

What? Why? I thought you did really well last year. You got some bad breaks with your opponent getting really high points totals, but you were also scoring a lot.

It has nothing to do with my W-L record. Just not that into it. The last half of the season wasn't fun for me & I basically kept to myself. Parts of it were fun but it's not as crucial to me.

We should figure out who is on board or not at least a month before the draft so we can get new owners

I agree. I don't want to inconvenience anyone. God forbid. ;)

I was just kidding around, I just watched the episode of The Office where Jim was wearing a tuxedo and messing with Dwight about not having classy ideas. I'm pretty much just looking for reasons to say whether something is classy or not these days. Love that show.

Sorry Katie. I'll clean it up.

Ricky, I appreciate the apology. It's hard to determine tone on a message board.

So, I'm bumping this because I need opinions again. I made some trades, did some add/drops, and now my roster looks like this:

Victor Martinez
Anthony Rizzo
Ben Zobrist
Evan Longoria
Troy Tulowitzki
Mark Trumbo
Matt Holliday
Ben Revere
Starling Marte
Oscar Taveras
Macro Scutaro
Wil Myers

Rafael Soriano
Carlos Marmol
Trevor Bauer
Shelby Miller
Jarrod Parker
Mat Latos
Jake Odorizzi
Felix Hernandez
Justin Verlander
Dylan Bundy
Zack Wheeler
Danny Hultzen

I can keep ten guys; they come off the front of the draft in rounds 1-10. If I keep less than 10, then I get those picks (so if I keep 8 I get to pick in rds 9 and 10).

To me, I have nine locks: Verlander, Felix, Latos, Rizzo, Zobrist, Tulo, Longo, Trumbo, Holliday. I can't decide if I should keep one of the prospect-y types that I picked up as soon as our commish unlocked add/drops, (which I did mainly so other people couldn't stash them) or leave it at nine and pick up that 10th round pick instead and see if the other owners didn't keep someone really good. VMart would be the other guy I'd maybe consider keeping, but I think I'll be able to draft him.

I'd probably keep Bundy. Ace material is hard to come by.
