Need for Speed

Postby Curly Day » Wed Jul 08, 2009 12:22 pm

I'm in second/third place (changes daily, but mainly 2nd) 10-15 points behind first of a 12 team 5x5 league. I'm in top 2 in HR and RBI's, and 4th in Ave. 6th and 7th in runs and SB's. Pitching wise, I'm 2nd in saves, 3 in wins and K's and and 5th and 6th in era and whip. Just completed a big trade to gain grienke and max s and letting go of k-rod in the process, so that should help with era and whip and adding starters helps with wins and K's.

My biggest place to catch up is SB and runs. Any suggestions?

I want to try and swing Reyes, Bekham, Cuddyer for Jeter and Roberts (after i offered something else, he countered with the above but Kenshin Kawakami instead of Roberts). Something like that good?

Nyjer Morgan is available on waivers and I could cut Frasor soon. Looks like the guy who owns Bourn isn't being responsive as I offered Cuddyer there.

Waiting to hear on sending Cuddyer and Polanco for Span and Luis Castillo after I backed out of a Dunn for Victorino trade - could go back to that?

Which course should I take?

I'd go for Jeter and Roberts. And cut Frasor for Morgan when Downs returns healthy.

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.

Thanks as always Grey.

I like that route too. Polanco becomes my util then - he becomes no better than the hot waiver schmohawk of the week right?

I may trade to add Nolasco in that trade and send over Cueto. Any thoughts on who will be better the rest of the way? Or trade Kershaw for Nolasco?

Nolasco should be better.

Better than either or Cueto?

Is Jay Bruce going to up his average the rest of the way?

Bruce's average should come up a bit. Nolasco over both, they're all close though.
