12 team 5x5 mixed league...
currently in 1st place.
i would trade away...
I would receive
My team would then look like....
i am thinking pence will help solidify a very top heavy outfield and should help in steals (lots of teams on my heels). cuddyer and blake have been good but not much of a difference between those guys and cust and reimold. i also just added krispie young from the wire. gallardo will help out tremendously in k's to an already potent staff.
i am only starting 3 closers a week (9 total p spots) and since Bailey seems to be solidifying himself i think i should trade one of my four guys. of the 4 (coco, hoffman, bailey, downs), downs seems like the best candidate to trade--the shine seems to be wearing off and he seems to be getting it done with smoke and mirrors lately.
the cons of the trade: nick johnson would then be expected to hold down the fort every week at corner infield (rather than a blake/n johnson platoon). if i make the deal i will then add feliz, crede or overbay for some depth. i know blake is better but johnson should be good in average and runs.
it always hurts to lose a closer but i feel they are easily replaceable. there will be plenty more to go down in june. i just hope they aren't any of my other guys.
cuddyer is a steady bat and seems to have the 06 form back. however, his hot streak is way over and i think combinations of cust, reimold and krispie can easily replace that.
salty replaces suzuki and is probably an upgrade. no con there.
am i over managing or strengthening my squad? what do you think?
