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.

Really?

I realize on pure player value I would be on the short end, but team needs I think it may benefit me.

I have a black hole @ 2b that Roberts would instantly cure. Johnson would be an adequate DH.

Elvis rides my bench, so basically its the production of Berks & Kaz vs Roberts & Johnson.

Dude that's outrageous, lay off the crack rock. If you're Jonesing that bad for a 2nd Baseman and steals in general why don't you offer up Berkman + not very valuable dude for Kinsler.

You could probably get a deal like that done, it'd address your speed and 2nd basemen issue. Even if you have to give up more value than that it's still worth it.

Never done crack, but it might be fun.

The guy with Kinsler wanted Berkman & Lind for Kinsler & Wolf. I think that is way too much I'd rather just give up Berks & get Roberts & Johnson.

I'm counter with Adam Lind & Elvis for Roberts & Bonofico.

What is the opinion on that offer? Am is this a more reasonable offer to take if he agrees?
