TIME FOR A FIXER UPPER

I'm in the mix for 1st place in a keeper league but dangerously low on avg, OBP, and hitters K's. The best place to make moves for me is probably in the outfield. My current starters are........

Sizemore
Nelson Cruz
Adam Jones
Ludwick (DL)

We start 3 OF in a ten team roto. Here's what I'm thinking. If I deal Cruz for Ichiro, it helps with avg, OBP and cuts down my K's. The problem is, will he do it? I've never been a big fan of Ichiro for roto, but this move would surely work wouldn't it? I'd have Ludwick back to plug in at util so not worried about losing power.

What you guys think?

I like that idea for you, and I don't like Ichiro either.

I proposed it, not sure he'll go for it. But fortunately for me, his strongest suit is steals and weakest is power so we'll see.

This thread will probably go on all season, just like last year! Warning you in advance, you the man Grey.

No go on the Ichiro deal, coudn't bring myself to part with Cruz, he's just so lovable right now.

Tried to move Carlos Pena for Youk but no bite either, who else should I target for Pena? He's manning CI for me.

Mauer? Votto? Send someone much lesser for M. Young? Hudson? Sanchez? Nick Johnson?

Updated my sig, WWGD?

Offered Pena and Blalock for Mauer and Loney. Didn't include Blalock in the sig cause we have a deeeepp bench. I know you hate Loney but he would actually help my team. The dude with Mauer has Benjie on the bench and he's weak on the corners, so maybe?

Thanks.

That trade's okay for you.

No go on that deal either.

This is a whopper and I feel like I'm giving too much. What you think?

Pena, Blalock, Jered Weaver for Chipper, Roy Halladay.

Is Chipper even worth anything this year? His avg would help me but his overall numbers may be the worst in his career.

You're giving up too much.
