I'm in a 10-team mixed league, very little trading. The top 2 teams are "run" by owners who never log in. Yet somehow I've fallen from 2nd to 9th place now.
My stats (higher is better)
My team is as listed in the signature. Available players include those below. Any obvious changes to shake things up given my needs? Nothing jumps out at me. I do plan on dropping Napoli when or before Iannetta is ready, which will open up another spot once Hamilton takes the DL position.
Konerko, Reimold, Beltre, Drew, J-Lopez, Nick Johnson, Cody Ross, Byrd, Juan Rivera, Sheff, Dukes, Andruw, Aybar, Sandoval, Guzman
Blackburn, Pavano, various MRs
SS: H Ramirez
OF: Hamilton, Crawford, Hart, Pence, Bruce
SP: Haren, Lester, Lackey, Bedard, Kershaw, Jurrjens, Wandy
RP: Rivera, Street, Downs, Lindstrom
J-Lopez is hot. Lose Kendrick. Bruce at UTIL, Reimold in the OF. Lose Rowand. What's flop? Trade Bedard and Manny for a top outfielder. Think Markakis. When Hamilton goes to the DL, pickup Beltre and play him over Huff and trade Huff and Napoli for a junky closer. Think Bailey. Then trade Rivera and a small piece for a better 2nd base or MI. Think Brandon Phillips.
