Re: The Trade Market: June 2041

And, of course, when you have a good young player, you prefer not to trade him, either. As in the MLB these days, probably the best time to trade an impact player for value is just before he enters his arbitration years. Francisco Lindor is the example that comes to mind--with everyone pushing him a...

Re: The Trade Market: June 2041

Part of the problem is the incredible amount of young talent we have from those bloated drafts. I expect the wheels of the trade market to start turning again once things settle back down but that’ll probably take 5-6 seasons... It might be faster than you're guessing, but, yes. When we first start...

Re: The Trade Market: June 2041

If he's going to move, Palacios is a guy I would expect to move as a deadline deal made by a team for whom its obvious that an extra game would make a difference.

Re: The Trade Market: June 2041

I got zero offers on Lorenzo Palacios, who is only one of the top ten hitters in the BBA and signed cheap. That confused me. With 31 teams you'd think someone would need a 5 WAR hitter. Palacios is underpaid, but not cheap. He also comes with age risk and a long contract. To Alan's point on supply ...

Re: The Trade Market: June 2041

this, the only thing that might offend me more is when someone asks for a completely ridiculous value for one of their guys. These are the same thing, really, just to sides of the coin. Note, though, the passages above regarding the value Justin Jackson represents to Omaha--which is essentially the...

Re: The Trade Market: June 2041

I think it's helpful to think about valuations that way. By that, I mean if someone offered you more than this guy (who you got for Sim leaving), and you turned him down, then there was real interest...you just didn't take advantage of it.

Re: The Trade Market: June 2041

Analyzing potential trade partners is a skill I need to develop... Instead of just updating the block and hoping someone bites. I was surprised no one was interested in San Duk Sim last season and really no one is interested in Parker Davenport this season. Maybe there's plenty of above average def...

Does this mean you want our Thursday sim exports done on the new version, or we import on the old version on Thursday, and then export for Sunday on the new one?

Re: Best Pitch to Add for a SP Conversion... (Asking for a friend)

I tend to like cutters and forkballs, though I wouldn't argue against any of them...except, actually, a knuckle ball. I tend to think of the knuckler as an elite pitch, meaning that if a guy has an elite one, it's great...but a half-assed one worries me. If I had two others it would be sinker/knuckl...
