As we close out the season, trade situation:


- 3B (full or 1/2 season)

- Ace/#1 Pitcher and/or upgrade to starting staff (have decent to pretty good guys I could send in return)

- OF Upgrade 


Potential Chips:

Can deal one of my 2B for comparable 3B or upgrade in OF (or P, is it's a rotation upgrade)

                              PAs    HR    AVG OBP SLG

2B       - Schoop    557     30   .306  .354  .542

2B       - Lowrie     534     12   .269   .346  .438

If I can get a half season SS, I'd trade Freddy Galvis, if not, could trade Semien

SS       - Galvis      551     11   .254  .304  .396

SS       - Semien    258     50   .258  .345  .387


If I get a 3B from one of the above, can trade 3B PAs for P or OF Upgrade. 

3B      - Devers       134      8    .289  .358   .537

S/2/3  - Tomlinson 180      0    .265  .348   .310



Elias Diaz, AJ Ellis and Miguel Montero  150-230 PAs each


I could send you Miguel Sano and an OF for some starting pitching.

I'm going to be tight on SP innings... more likely I trade for a SP than trade one away (though if I do get one, I'd have innings to spare)

From WIS:



As most of you know, WhatIfSports recently changed ownership. As part of that transition, we'll be transferring the games to a new environment. Due to the seriously outdated technology that the SimLeague Baseball Live is built in, it won't survive that transfer. The plan is to eventually rebuild it in new technology and re-introduce it to the SimLeague Baseball game.

What this means is that at some point in the next few months, Live will go offline. I'm not sure yet when that will happen. In preparation, I've disabled Live-related settings for theme leagues. Until the actual shutdown, leagues are free to continue using it.

Since I was drafted into the BTTF Basketball, I've been all over this news.  First I've seen the snippet on Live (thanks @jfranco )  which is awesome. Sounds like they at least plan on bringing it back... seems like such low hanging fruit in terms of providing a different user experience, so lets hope they follow through.

c - Wolters, Knapp, Centeno, and a couple of slugs should get me lackluster stats and average defense


1b - Wil Myers 332/24/17

2B Altuve  415/21/31

3B Rendon   401/23/7

SS Simmons  339/14/19

OF1 Blackmon 405/33/13

OF2 AJ Pollock 324/18/9

OF3 Kh Davis 323/37/4

BU OF/IF MArwyn 366/21/7

Util - Teoscar hernandez and Tyler White might get a few callup ABs to ude lightly


SPSantana .184/335/114

ANnibal Sancheez, Brad Peacock,/ Lance McCullers/ Amir Garrett /Graveman / Musgrove / Devinski

Maybe can cobble these together and avg. 6.2 innings each and hand off to relievers


Giles/ Herraera/Rosenthal/


Desperate arms to complete the season

Reynaldo Lopez/David Paulino/Vance Worley



All the offensive players except Pollock have put in a full season with lots of offense. Marwyn can back them all up (except catcher. which will sucK)

Speed power and OBP should keep me in games, the pitching staff should struggle to keep me there

My sucky team looks like this right now...

Catcher: Evan Gattis 276 PA 269/319/470, Cameron Rupp 305 PA 221/305/432

Should be covered here. Various Gattis injuries mean I won't have any surplus.

First base: Brandon Belt 451 PA 241/355/469, C.J. Cron 284 PA 255/311/456, Rhys Hoskins 110 PA 319/436/758

Belt and Cron will make a passable platoon. Hoskins is probably my only good trade chip.

Second base: Neil Walker 373 PA 269/352/446, TJ Rivera 231 PA 290/330/430

Rivera hopefully will get a passable 2B rating because my other options here are not good.

Third base: Nolan Arenado 583 PA 305/363/579

One of the few picks I nailed, even if it was an easy one. Rivera can cover any PA shortage.

Shortstop: Trevor Story 459 PA 226/303/425, Erick Aybar 305 PA 231/298/359, Danny Espinosa 282 PA 166/233/277

Admitted Story was a gamble when I took him, and I lost on it. Aybar will pass as a UTIF. Espinosa hopefully won't make my roster.

Outfield: Curtis Granderson 460 PA 212/324/460, Jackie Bradley 425 PA 259/338/424, Robbie Grossman 383 PA 244/366/372, Albert Almora 285 PA 286/332/397, Austin Jackson 251 PA 311/375/495, Hyun Soo Kim 221 PA 234/305/294, Derek Fisher 121 PA 219/307/371.

An exciting collection of mediocre outfielders that I will have to creatively rotate somehow. I might be able to trade from here but I'm not optimistic.

Starting pitcher:

Aaron Nola 142.2 IP, 1.22 WHIP,  0.95 HR/9

Kenta Maeda 120.1 IP, 1.13 WHIP, 1.42 HR/9

Jharel Cotton 114 IP, 1.46 WHIP, 1.89 HR/9

Mike Clevinger 100.1 IP, 1.27 WHIP, 1.17 HR/9

Edinson Volquez 92.1 IP, 1.419 WHIP, 0.78 HR/9

Joe Ross 73.2 IP, 1.466 WHIP, 1.95 HR/9

Nate Karns 45.1 IP, 1.191 WHIP, 1.79 HR/9

That's 688.2 IP so far, and only the top 4 are still pitching. Pretty sure I'll have to trade for at least one full-time SP to have a staff and ideally 2 to move some of the above crap to the bullpen.

Relief pitcher (usable):

Mike Minor 66 IP, 1.015 WHIP, 0.68 HR/9

Bryan Shaw 64.2 IP, 1.253 WHIP, 0.56 HR/9

AJ Ramos 53 IP, 1.321 WHIP, 1.02 HR/9

Junichi Tazawa 43 IP, 1.372 WHIP, 1.47 HR/9

Cam Bedrosian 36 IP, 1.278 WHIP, 0.50 HR/9

Buddy Boshers 32.1 IP, 1.299 WHIP, 1.67 HR/9

Relief pitcher (garbage): Justin Nicolino 36.1 IP, Tony Sipp 32 IP, Jake Petricka 25.2 IP.

That's 295 IP I can use and another 94 I can throw out there if I just give up. If I don't shift some SP here I may need to make a trade.


My offense may be mediocre, but at least my pitching staff is terrible. I'm hoping that with a few trades and some miraculous luck, I can turn this into a .500 outfit.

CATCHER Sandy Leon 263 PA  228/290/354 Christian Vazquez 284 PA 287/331/400 Chris Herrmann 227 PA 171/269/271

Will be able to trade one of these guys. All should have good defensive rating. Herrmann will get a rating in the OF as well. Not terribly unhappy with these guys, but meh.

FIRST BASE  Ian Desmond 294 PA 279/325/375 Kennys Vargas 231 PA 245/303/420

Ugh. Should get enough PA out of these two, but that is some terrible production from 1B for sure.

SECOND BASE  DJ LeMahieu 583 PA 317/381/413

Hey! He seems pretty good.

THIRD BASE Todd Frazier 500 PA 209/334/413


SHORTSTOP Tim Anderson 510 PA 247/268/398


OUTFIELD Michael Brantley 372 PA 299/358/445, Kevin Pillar 558 PA 255/299/405, Yasiel Puig 493 PA 256/345/476, Jarrod Dyson 390 PA 251/324/350, Mitch Haniger 308 PA 258/345/443

Too many injuries here, which is unfortunate cause they are a decent bunch. Probably have enough PA from 4 of the, so could trade Haniger or Dyson. maybe.

UTIL Daniel Descalso 338 PA 243/340/408 1B/2B/3B/OF

Hopefully Anderson gets enough PA that Descalso covering the rest of the infield is sufficient. 

SP1 Clayton Kershaw 147 IP, 1.95 ERA 0.1862 WHIP

SP2 Gerrit Cole 173 IP, 4.11 ERA, 1.243 WHIP

SP3 Taijuan Walker 132 IP, 3.42 ERA, 1.291 WHIP

SP4 Rick Porcello 181 IP, 4.67 ERA, 1.401 WHIP

SP5 Jeremy Hellickson 149 IP, 5.26 ERA, 1.275 WHIP

SP6 Doug Fister 67 IP, 4.18 ERA, 1.305 WHIP

SP7 Tyler Glasnow + Cesar Valdez, 85 IP of terrible stats

Kershaw getting hurt was a big time bummer. Fister pitching decently and often enough should give me enough starts from these 6 though. Have Glasnow and Valdez and their combined 15 starts and 85 IP for trade to a desperate team.

RP Addison Reed 64 IP, 3.25 ERA, 1.068 WHIP

RP Dan Otero 55 IP, 2.80 ERA, 1.226 WHIP

RP Fernando Abad 40 IP, 2.72 ERA, 1.160 WHIP

RP Santiago Casilla 51 IP, 4.21 ERA, 1.422 WHIP

RP Daniel Coulombe 47 IP, 3.80 ERA, 1.246 WHIP

RP Jorge DeLaRosa 46 IP, 4.47 ERA 1.338 WHIP

RP Ryan Pressly 52 IP, 4.85 ERA, 1.058 WHIP

RP Wade Leblanc 65 IP, 4.68 ERA, 1.194 WHIP

Will look to trade one or two of these guys. Solid but unspectacular bunch here

Just about to cross the 1,300 eligible IP plateau (excluding the 80 or so IP that won't likely hit the 25 IP minimum).

Hopefully, especially with new ownership (and the expected infusion of SOME resources, which has to be more than FOX Sports provided WIS) we get the ratings just after the season, as has usually been the case. 


Main Chips to trade for 3B or major OF upgrade - or upgrade to front half of rotation

2B - Lowrie or Schoop

SS - Semien's 60% season or Galvis' full season

C - Will have 3 catchers to deal with 150-250 PAs each.

The newly designed Fantrax site is trash, really wish I could change it back to the old format.
