    2K19- Free Agent League

    I saw that few people posted their teams in the 2017 free agent thread but I thought I'd start a new one. Please put your rosters in here so we can keep the conversation going. I picked my team this morning and starting pitching is really thin but closers/potential closers are plentiful. For some reason Giolito was drafted on my team but I'm keeping him anyway. He's not good enough for it to really matter for this exercise.

    C - Iannetta
    CR - Morales, Gyorko
    MI - Walker, Semien, Beckham
    OF - Choo, Hicks, Altherr, M Smith, C Dickerson
    UT - McMahon

    SP - Giolito, Manaea, Flaherty, Estrada
    RP - Kela, Boxberger, Parker, Ziegler, Jones, Soria, Strickland
    DL - Gregerson (who I guess I can drop now that Holland was signed; who was drafted so I can't pick him up)
    I'm unconsoled I'm lonely, I am so much better than I used to be.

    C - C Ianetta
    1B - L Morrison
    2B - D Travis
    SS - O Arcia
    3B - M Chapman
    OF - B Zimmer, L Brinson, C Dickerson
    UT - S Schleber, Y Alonso,
    BN - J Soler, A Barnes, M Brantley

    SP - D Bundy, M Shoemaker, T Roark, M Mikolas
    RP - B Boxberger, K Kela, N Jones, H Strickland
    BN - M Givens, M Estrada

    When I drafted/replaced a couple of weeks ago I had zero closers, but have been able to pick up four just by paying attention. Yeah, SP is thin - I'm hopeful that this league is somewhat active & I can trade up - I see that 11 of the 12 teams have already made transactions, so there's that.

    I think my offense can be middle of the pack as is, though I'm already 15 runs & rbis off the lead.

    this is going to be tough

    C - Grandal
    1B - Pujols
    2B - Castro
    SS - Peraza
    3B - Davidson (but not on opening day)
    OF - Belt(might cut), L Brinson, M. Taylor
    UT - J Martinez, McMahon
    BN - M Smith, Alonso, Travis

    SP - F Hernandez, Chatwood, Peacock, Suter, Folty
    RP - B Boxberger, Robertson, Devenski, H Strickland
    BN - Cobb,
    DL - Salazar

    My methodology has always been trade saves for power or better SP as soon as possible - and also the same thing with steals

    I am also going to see if any of your players are out there

    I went & picked up Josh Fields this am, just in case ... I've also been able to pick up Hanley Ramirez & Cesar Hernandez on waivers & Danny Salazar to stash on my DL over the past few days.

    My offense sucks too. Big time, so I made a bunch of changes.

    C - Iannetta
    CR - Belt, Davidson (after the 3 HR game)
    MI - Semien, Beckham, Escobar
    OF - Choo, M Smith, C Dickerson, Reddick, Tucker
    DL - Hicks

    SP - Giolito, Manaea, Estrada, Bundy, Mahle, Wainright
    RP - Kela, Boxberger, Parker, Ziegler, Soria, Strickland
    DL - Salazar

    I decided to try and pick up some players off to hot starts, they will be gone when they cool off but I couldn't wait too much longer as I'm really falling behind in R, HR and RBI.

    I'm wondering if picking up Middleton for Parker would be a good move. I also don't really want to roster Ziegler, Steck and Barraclough are available.

    OK - I wasnt paying attention for a few days just due to frustation
    but a trade was accepted so I will check things out

    I traded davidson and strickland
    for McCutcheon and Brantley

    I am going to keep trading closers to upgrade hitters - Now I need to see what I can do for starting pitching

    I hope you acted on this, he's looking to be the guy.

    I'm up to 35 moves so far ...

    C - C Ianetta
    1B - H Ramirez
    2B - C Hernandez
    SS - A Simmons
    3B - M Chapman
    OF - M Brantley, L Brinson, C Dickerson
    UT - S Schleber, Y Alonso,
    BN - B Zimmer, S Schleber, L Morrison, S Souza (DL)

    SP - D Bundy, T Roark, M Mikolas, V Velasquez
    RP - B Boxberger, K Kela, H Strickland, N Jones, A Ottavino
    BN - M Estrada, J Fields, D Salazar (DL)

    I'm actually tied for 4th but it's smoke & mirrors as I've gotten lucky & have 12's in both ERA & ratio. That won't last with this roster. I'm thinking of trying to bundle Bundy & Boxberger to get a big name or two, tho having both Souza & Salazar joining in a few weeks (hopefully) should help.
    It certainly feels that way. But I'm distrustful of that feeling and am curious about evidence.
    Some people think he's playing chess when actually his aides are trying to stop him from eating the pieces.

    Sadly, I didn't and someone picked him up a few hours ago. That's what I get for going out last night and being busy this morning/afternoon so I didn't look at anything till just now.

    I'm at 34 moves so far, soon to be 35 when I drop Parker...
