Yeah, I was banking on the hype giving him the needed boost in value (and hoping OJ was being undervalued for his less than flashy numbers), but you're probably right. I might as well wait until the regular season to see if the hype really takes off then. If worse comes to worst, I can still hold onto him.
Dude, you seriously undervalued CP3. Oh well.
If you can land Mayo for Jackson, do it.
I thought I got a pretty good haul for him at the time but now that you mention it, I guess I could've gotten more bang for my buck. It's weird because I'm usually a very patient negotiator in fantasy, willing to go back and forth with an owner until I've squeezed out every last bit of value in a deal. In this instance, I let my love for Kanter make me a bit too trigger happy. I think it's also because of the differences in value between fantasy baseball and basketball. Having only played the former before this, first round talent is obviously significant, but there isn't that clear distinction between the picks after Trout/Cabrera and those to follow in the second and third rounds. What I've come to notice in basketball is that even after Lebron and Durant, picks 3-8 hold significantly more value than, say, picks 15-20.The way I saw it, I was shipping off a #4 or #5 pick for a #20 pick and a #50 pick (my own projections for their respective values). Now I see that such a way of thinking is flawed in its logic.
After all these years of frustrated efforts in trying to negotiate with stubborn baseball owners, it looks like I've swung the other way and sold my own effort short. Oh well, all part of the learning process I suppose.
What do you think would have been reasonable value for CP3 in terms of a pair of starters?
