lost my 1st match-up of the year. Do I need to make changes?

You wanna trade who for who? Wow, that's awful/great/horrendous/beautiful/really terrible?

lost my 1st match-up of the year. Do I need to make changes?

Postby B.J. » Mon May 18, 2009 3:08 pm

I feel as if I have a very solid team and loved it going into the season but we are now 6 weeks into the season and I feel like my team is missing something. I could probably use another closer and a speed guy but not sure if I want to pay the asking price for either spot. There is one owner in the league who has Reyes, Crawford and Victorino on his team as he went speed heavy and is now looking to make a move for a power guy. Is it worth pursuing a trade with him? I will put his roster below.

Also I dropped Ricky Nolasco after his blow-up last week for Ryan Dempster, is there anyone worth dumping on my team to re-acquire Nolasco. I know he is going to turn things around but I can't have a guy crushing my ERA and WHIP every other time he out there.

Anyways here's his team:

C- J. Baker 1B- Morneau 2B- Kendrick 3B- Lowell SS- Reyes
OF- Crawford, Bay, Victorino UTIL- Dye
Bench- Werth, Atkins
DL- Doumit

SP- Beckett, Duke
RP- B. Wilson, Qualls
P- Gregg, Wood, Slowey
Bench- Maholm, Meche, E. Jackson, Danks
DL- B. Webb

C- Posada 1B- Miggy C 2B- Beckham 3B- Zimmerman SS- A. Ramirez
OF- J. Upton, McCutchen, G. Sizemore UTIL- Fielder
SP- Hanson, J. Weaver RP- Marmol, Hanrahan
P- B. Anderson, T. Lilly, R. Nolasco

Bench- J. Bruce, M. Pineda, R. Romero, Capps, A. Gordon, J. Zimmermann
DL- Greinke, Utley

What about Holliday for Crawford? Then you can play Cruz for power and Crawford for speed. Nolasco is due to turn it around and I'd prefer him to Dempster.

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.

Well I just talked to the other owner and he is looking for a starting pitcher in return. I don't think it will get accepted but how about Josh Johnson, Pablo Sandoval and Nelson Cruz for Carl Crawford and Brian Wilson. I feel like my 2 biggest needs are SB and Saves. I know SAGNOF and I shouldn't be trading for either of them but that's where I struggle. Then I free up a roster spot and can grab Nolasco.

The other owner is insisting on one of these 3 SP: Santana, Greinke or Haren. I'm not looking to trade Santana or Greinke but Haren has a history of falling off in the 2nd half. Would giving him Haren, Sandoval and Cruz for Crawford and Wilson still be a good trade? only issue would be I'm stuck putting one of these guys on the bench everyday: Dunn, Rios, Holliday, Votto, Kemp or Crawford (if I pull the trigger on a deal)

After typing that out I realized it was a pretty crappy offer b/c Haren is a stud pitcher. Any idea what a good offer would be? This owner is tough to trade with, he overvalues his players incredibly.

To be honest with you I think this is a panic move by me. My team has been solid and one bad week is not going to ruin my season. The funny thing is I would have won the week if Gallardo's start doesn't get rained. I would have won K's and likely would have held on in WHIP and ERA.

I said potential trades above. If the guy won't go for them, then forget him.
