5X5 Yahoo League

C: Ryan Hanigan
1b: Prince Fielder
2b: Brendan Harris
3b: Russell Branyan
SS: Alex Cora
MI: Christian Guzman
CI: Ian Stewart
OF: Shane Victorino
OF: Colby Rasmus
OF: Elijah Dukes
OF: Chris Young
BN: Carlos Ruiz
BN: Kelly Shoppach
BN: Howie Kendrick
BN: Fernando Martinez
BN: Sean Rodriguez
DL: Carlos Beltran

SP: Roy Oswalt
SP: Ted Lilly
SP: Chan Ho Park
SP: Derek Holland
SP: Chad Gaudin
RP: Nick Masset
RP: George Sherrill
P: Trevor Hoffman
P: Takashi Saito
BN: Dave Bush
BN: John Lannan
BN: R.A. Dickey
DL: Daisuke Matsuzaka
DL: Anibal Sanchez


So I pulled off what has turned out to be a awful trade. In an effort to pick up a SP, I dealt Corey Hart, Edwin Encarnacion, and Rick Porcello for Dice K, Brendan Harris, and R.A Dickey (throw in on the other guy's end). I pulled the trigger on this deal 2 days before Dice K was shut down. I have tried a last minute appeal to get the deal vetoed, but it looks like I will come up a vote or 2 short of accomplishing that. The only hit I thought I would be taking was losing Hart, but I had nice OF depth so I could afford to roll the "dice K" on Matsuzaka to recover from his slow start (his peripherals didn't look too out of whack and he has a BABIP against of 441). Obviously I didn't do enough homework on my end, and to top things off, Beltran now hits the DL. So to recap, I'm out Hart, Beltran, Encarnacion, Porcello. And what I have to show for it is Brendan Harris and R.A. "Flapping" Dickey.

Anywho, any help on what I do now would be appreciated. I've put Prince Fielder on the block right now since he is my last trade chip. I need a stud SP with high K potential, a serviceable CI to replace Fielder, and probably another OF. Any thoughts on who I should target or possibly an alternate strategy since I'd prefer to not give up Princess. I'm in 6th place so I'd like to think I still have an outside chance to win this. Am I deluding myself?

You shouldn't trade Fielder. He's your only big time hitter. I'd see what kind of offers I got for Stewart, Rasmus or Branyan. Maybe a 2nd tier starter for one of them, think Wainwright.

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.
