Re: Huff/Pierre

OK, thanks I've stood down. Too much hit to the OBP category. Appreciate it.

Huff/Pierre

Hi Grey -

I think I have enough power to give up Huff in a 6x6 league (including OBP). In a vacuum, assuming I could potentially pick up a few spots in steals if Pierre remotely has a reasonable steals pace, do you think it's an even or reasonable swap?

Power for Steals

Any suggestions of players I should look to trade for some speed right now? I have a ton of power and think I could pick up five spots in the standings with some speed. Was thinking of offering Carlos Pena for Juan Pierre, but I can't stomach offering such a productive player for one who's just...no...

Pitcher Question

Long time no talk all. Here's my pitching staff:

Jon Lester, Billingsley, Jaime Garcia, Ryan Dempster, Ricky Romero, Kris Medlen

Shockingly, Cueto is still on waivers. Doubt I can get much in a trade for a pitcher. Think it's worth dropping any of those guys for Johnny C?

Thanks.

Andruw Jones

Does anyone think Andruw Jones is worth a roster spot at this point? 12-team, 6x6 league with holds and OBP. Unfortunately I have Matsui DH'ing but I'd have to think one or both of them will get OF eligibility soon. Wondering whether others think it's worth speculating on Andruw or using the roster ...

Re: Dexter Fowler

Thanks Grey. Need me some speed. And I meant to say that I'm in a 6x6 league with holds. I should think we're all in a league with saves.

6th on the waiver wire for Fowler. Hope SS gets demoted in exactly 3 days.

Dexter Fowler

At this point, is it worth targeting him for a buy low? Or in my situation, he's shockingly on waivers - worth dropping a Pat Neshek-quality MR for him? Even if I'm in a league with saves?

I should think so - too much proven talent despite the crowded outfield - but appreciate the thoughts.

Re: My Only Draft

Very good thought. I did that with both Cueto and Volquez last year...not that I did it skillfully, but I did it. It was tough for me to bid up starters when they only account for 1/3 of the stats. I imagine injuries or slow starts might force me to consider the waiver wire or streaming. Appreciate ...

Re: My Only Draft

Thanks Grey. Last question and I'll leave you to your underground lair: in a holds league, is it valuable to keep MRs like League, Grabow and Rodney because they can both get holds and are the likely closers-in-waiting? Or should I keep my relievers unhedged and just aim for holds?

My Only Draft

Yes, my only draft and I think I might have flubbed it. Still, I think I got enough Grey-approved value to have some chips, though obviously that's not the purpose. First pick of 12 teams, no keepers, 6x6 with holds and OBP. Oh, and my computer shut down during picks 20 and 21 and gave me Hideki Mat...
