Uggla for Tex?

Leaguemate has offered his Tex for my Uggla. Typically I'd jump on that posthaste but I have no one to slide in at 2B, while Konerko and Rizzo man 1B and CI, respectively. Second base options on waivers include Amarista, Betancourt, Beckham, Theriot, Tejada, i.e. a whole lot of nothing beyond maybe ...

Trading for Utley?

13-team mixed points league, where the point system is set up to mirror roto relatively closely. Received a proposal of Utley for Daniel Hudson, straight up. Point system for hitters: AB = -0.5, H = 2, 2b = 2, 3b = 3, HR = 4, RBI/R/BB = 1 each, SB = 2, CS = -1, E = -2, GIDP = -0.5 Point system for p...

Tired of carrying this schmohawk. Looking at K. McClellan, B. McCarthy, and T. Ross for replacements -- what's the best bet?

Other staff includes Gallardo, Chacin, CBills, D. Hudson, I. Kennedy, Z. Britton.

Braun/Beckett

First place in my 13-team mixed points league. Sitting on Tulo, Reyes, and Furcal, so I'm looking to deal one of them in a package to get either another big bat or a number 1/2 SP. Last place team offered me Braun/Beckett for Reyes/Rasmus/Romero. Alliterative loveliness aside, what do we think of Be...

Re: Can I actually accept this trade?

I think vetoes via league votes are stupid. The only time a trade should be vetoed is when it is a clear case of collusion; this is not one of those times. Just because a trade doesn't benefit both teams doesn't mean it shouldn't pass; trades like that happen in real sports all the time. It's no one...

Manny on the cheap

The owner in my 13-team points league who has Manny is desperate to get rid of him, and I want to use this situation to my advantage. He has James Shields, a guy I'd like to get to bolster my pitching, so I was thinking about a deal sending my Torii Hunter and one of Scherzer/Jered Weaver for his Ma...

Re: Carlos Lee

Just to clarify, is that because you think that the drop-off from Wainwright to Kershaw is too much? I'd like to get Lee but not at the expense of my already-thin pitching. His other pitchers of note are Lester, Lowe, and Wandy; would subbing in one of them for Kershaw turn the tide in my favor?

Carlos Lee

My primary league is a 13-team mixed points league in which I was just offered the following: His Carlos Lee, Kershaw, and Yadier for my Wainwright, Hawpe, Ramon Hernandez. To me it's a no-brainer on the surface, but a couple of things give me pause. Here's my roster: C Ramon Hernandez 1b Prince Fie...

Re: Is now the time to pick up Phil Hughes?

Think I read somewhere on the site (can't find it now) that Derek Holland is preferable to Hughes at this point? In my 13-team league, is Hughes worth grabbing at the expense of any of my pitchers? (I've got a waiver request pending that would drop Brandon Wood for Maybin, if that falls through I'll...
