12 Team H2H My Roster:
1B: Berkman (DL) Butler (Till Berkman gets off the DL)
SS: Rollins, Alexei Ramirez
OF: Hamilton, Pence, Bourne, Willingham, Hunter (DL), Bruce (DL)
SP: Wainwright, Lowe, Chamberlain, Baker, Blanton, Maholm, Hammel, Maholm
RP: Sherill, Franklin, Capps, Street, Jim Johnson, Chris Perez, Rauch
I'm short at first and shallow at 3rd. I am 2nd in the league in saves. I think my roster is better then it has been but its far enough in now that I should probably do something.
1. Trade Sherill for Huff
- I trade a guy who will likely lose his closers role for a guy who has been good in the 2nd half in his career.
- I also trade a guy who has been good this year for one who has been bad. Am I buying low or getting a guy who i'll drop in a week?
2. Trade Hamilton for Adrian Gonzolez and Randy Wells
- I Like Gonzo and Hamilton has been Brutal. Wells is a pretty good throwin
- Hamilton is a later pick for keeper consideration but its not a very big deal.
- Gonzo is good long term but there's no reason for anyone to ever throw him a pitch. He's been aweful lately. What do you think of him?
3. If I get Gonzo I will then offer Jimmy Rollins and Lance Berkman to Hanley Ramirez's owner.
- My corps of infielders will be: Gonzo, Utley, Hanley, Longoria and I still have a good chance to win this year.
- Hanley's owner has Derek Lee and Paul Konerko at first so he could use the upgrade.
- Am I giving up too much for this year. I'm 4th (top 4 make playoffs) so I still have a shot for this year and my keepers are solid for next year without the trade.
4. If I can get Hanley I will then try to turn Alexei into a pitcher or another outfielder
- I might target a guy like upton or victorino for the speed lost in rollins, berkman, hamilton and alexei.
I know its a long list but it was a long day at work and I gotta think about something. Which deals do you like, which are you lukewarm on?
