Stupid Yahoo League Again...

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Current team in the signature. Jackson to get the boot when Ortiz returns, and I plan to pick up Cashner (not many good DL guys on the wire) to place in Ortiz's DL spot.

I have a Q about strategy: My offense is insane, and my pitching is so-so (actually, it's been great lately, but I'm not sure how much I can trust it in the playoffs against teams with two aces). Trade deadline is the 17th. I'm wondering if I should just stick with what I have and be nearly guaranteed most offensive categories or move some excess offense for a pitching upgrade. Astoundingly, considering I'm a chronic mastertrader, I think I should just stay put and see if Latos, Fister, Zimmermann, etc. can stay hot.

Maybe you can trade one bat for a solid arm that someone may not trust? Bruce for 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.

Don't think a Wainwright trade could happen- his owner is a die-hard Cards fan- so I offered Bruce for Greinke, hoping that his recent struggles would encourage his owner to sell.

Bruce for Greinke got rejected, so I'm going to just roll with what I have. Except that I just discovered that someone dropped Jose Quintana a while back and I didn't notice it. It's understandable, because he's had some crappy starts lately, but it's hard to pass on a guy with his numbers and RP eligibility. So should I drop Affeldt to grab him?

I'd lose Affeldt for him if I needed starters... Otherwise, I'd hold...

With Cuddyer returning to the DL, I have a roster spot for a flyer...Grab Billy Hamilton, Profar, Wil Myers, or Guthrie? Any pickup would not need to be used for a few weeks; I am entrenched in first, so the next three weeks up to the playoffs don't matter much. Another option is to grab a MR for holds, which I haven't gone after yet this season.

If all of those prospects are available, why not grab a Holds guy until the last week or two of the season and then grab a prospect... Seems like they'll be there... I'd go with Profar out of them, if you wanna go with a prospect now...

Current version of team in signature. Who gets the boot to activate De Aza? I'm thinking Corbin- dude's been shizz lately.
