Unload Josh Hamilton or stay put?

Postby AdmiralTrey » Thu Jul 01, 2010 4:43 pm

This team is currently way ahead of everyone else, and has moved up into the top 2,000 in all Yahoo leagues, so it's doing pretty well. I know I can most likely win the league with what I've got, but as with my Cain/Ethier for Lincecum trade after Ethier got back from the DL, I'm always looking to make improvements where I can.

I'm thinking of offering Josh Hamilton and Troy Glaus for Ryan Howard and Matt Holliday to a guy that has expressed interest in Hamilton. I'm not sure if he'll do it anyway, and if Hamilton keeps this up, it'll be a pretty even deal, but the way I see it, I ought to be able to get more value from Holliday/Howard the rest of the year.

Should I go for it or stay put?

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

I'll offer it and hope for the best, and thanks! Yahoo adding Auction Drafts this year made it so much more possible to get all the players you target without worrying about someone reaching for them or getting stuck with a bad position slot...
