I just don't see the big deal with Marte, you're getting like an .800 OPS with 15 HR. Steals are nice but I expect them to start decling sharply any year now, and he doesn't walk. His profile scares me in a Carl Crawford way (although peak Crawford was a fantasy monster).
    This kind of was on the back of my mind as well. Plus with this being an .OBP league, it hurts his value slightly in comparison to the standard 5x5 leagues. Don't think he'll be a main power threat like in 2015 again as well. Still he's a solid all-around player to own and his CF eligibility is a huge plus. I've been trying to shop for a No. 1 starter and had no luck. Even put Marte on the block numerous times and wasn't getting offered anything. Heck, even if I wanted Chris Sale from you it would have cost Nolan Arenado, so I'd rather go this route.

    Despite protesting publically, I privately agreed with your concern that you raised throughout the season.

    Yeah, I wasn't going to part with him for Marte. You did well to get a legit ace for him, and if I were you, I would have preferred to keep Arenado over Marte too (easily).

    Gardner, Beltran, Saunders or Gordon OTB for a pitcher.

    So in the end you swapped A.J. Pollock and Felix Hernandez for Marte. Not bad considering the first two guys could be substantially broken. If healthy, Pollock and Marte are probably very similar, but nobody is losing sleep over Felix these days.

    TCA could have actually had Freddie Freeman last June/July for Stras, though he left the discussion table and never heard back. I think it's been almost over a year we've been trying to work out a deal that involved Stras lol. We come so close, then something stalls and it gets forgotten. Kind of the same with this deal. I think I threw this idea by him back in October and it wasn't going anywhere. I just threw the idea by him again just the other day.

    Alex Gordon is still probably something hopefully

    If we wait 6 hours or so, we can probably take advantage of him in a way that benefits us both

    I'd consider rolling the dice on him in this league now.

    Ya, probably should have took that deal.
