    I dont recall semenov being 3 flips away when he was on my team. Not much of a bat tho regardless. Kinda why i almost kept him at 2B, but decided he would probly end up at 3B
    Happy, but a little lost
    Well, I don't know what I don't know so I'll kick my shoes off &run

    as i've said elsewhere, the team will eventually be fine. long ball is not deep, having a pure ace covers up a ton of weaknesses, and there's plenty of role players. it's not hard to get the #1 pick and a lot of mid to late 1st type talents if you're willing to be below .500 for multiple years and also trade away multiple top 5 level picks to get those role players. at this point, we could throw BH back in charge of the team and it would probably make the playoffs within a few years. but we probably could have also thrown BH back in charge 3 seasons ago, let him draft Dragomir and collect his top 5 picks, and the team would be not terribly worse off than it is today. just want to be clear that when the team does make the playoffs that we're all aware of the cycling it went through first.

    3 flips based on 78/100 ra now and i think a historical average gain of 8 per year. He will be usable next year, but when you are talking about a WS capable team, a guy like Semenov needs to be a 100ra 3b to justify his current role.

    Simple Rules:

    1. Stop recruiting new owners for your half dead crappy leagues. Your efforts would be better used looking for a stable league with owners who actually care about their teams. Winning the world series in a half unowned league is not worthy of your time.

    2. If you are trading an elite item like a no1 overall pick or a superstud player, then dont take the first offer you get. Advertise your availability to the league to maximize your return. Your trade partner is not going to protect you from underselling yourself.

    3. Quoted from a thread about Monopoly gameplay: "This strategy will end up killing you in the long run. You WANT to make deals. You WANT to be easy to do business with. If players get the impression that you're always going to ask for unreasonable demands, they'll trade with other players, leaving you out of those trades, meaning you get nothing of value while they benefit. Remember, your goal in a trade should not be to screw your trading partner, but to screw anyone who isn't your trading partner. Then people will catch on and realize that if they're not going to give you fair rates, they're going to be left out in the cold, which means that you shouldn't be dealing with people who play that way either."

    This summarizes what I’ve been saying for the last ten years of my life. I am glad it has become less controversial over time.

    He gets a nice full scout boost tho, thats why i think hes closer. In BA and RA

    Full scout Potential (@2B) - 56/63/81/50:46:78/100/55:70
    The current RA was 67/78 at 2B

    could be 2 flips instead of 3.

    I also think we should get BH back in the league. But only so he can move up and claim the 69 position in the owner rankings.
