Thanks. If I was to get Rollins, Felipe would only be a bench player anyway.

I know it's still early, but what are the chances that Felipe and Rollins have numbers that are pretty similar by the end of the year?

Might have similar values, but their numbers won't be similar.

You really think Beltran for Rollins is a fair trade? Maybe I'm wrong but I see Beltran with a much higher value than rollins, not just saying that cause of Rollins bad start.

Rollins can turn it on for three months and this will be a non-issue. Right now it seems like a no-brainer for Beltran. It's riskier to go for Rollins at this point, that's for sure.

Got to mention Ian Stewart.

But I'm not as angry at Stewart than I am at Brian Roberts. AT LEAST STEAL SOME BASES IDIOT.

And two days after I traded Zimmerman and Adam Jones für Miggy Cabrera i look pretty stupid.

With Stewart and Sandoval out of the lineup and trading away Jones and Zimmerman i simply lost 7 HR the last two days! Man, i even look more stupid than Joe Torre for his incredible smart positioning of Matt Kemp on the number 7 spot.

Hopefully I can get him on the cheap. If not I'm still happy with a Beltran/Felipe combo.

OK. Despite my best efforts, the guy with Rollins is going to hold him - and I can hardly blame him for that.

So, I will try to move Lind for some pitching. After searching on 'Lind' in here, I saw a suggestion to someone else to try Lind for Slowey. Do you think that is still the level of SP to be shooting for?

Other potential targets in my league (that is, on teams that might want Lind) are:
Joba
Nolasco
Danks
Lester
E-Jax
Cueto

Or am I shooting too high with these guys? The guy with Cueto and Danks could probably do with a closer and I have closers to give.

Lind (add a plus closer once rejected) for Cueto, Joba, Slowey...

Dude with Joba will do Lind + Franklin or Qualls or F-Cord. My other closers are Sherrill, Percy and Bailey (assuming he has the job). And I'm generally first to the wire for new closers.

So, give up Qualls out of those three?
