Josh Johnson?

Postby Beane Disciple » Sat Aug 01, 2009 7:56 am

I'm in a dog fight in my league. It's just me and one other astute owner at the top, way out in front of everyone else. His team is absolutely stacked so I'm going to need to be strong in every single category. I was getting crushed in average so I traded Dan Haren to get Mauer and sold off a couple players to get Michael Young. I'm making up a ton of ground there and I think I'll be alright by the end of the season.

I am slipping like crazy in saves because a lot of the players I used to make trades were closers. There's like 2 people in my league who are closer horders. Their whole goal is to win saves; yeah, they're "that guy." One of the guys will not trade his closers no matter what (he took Papelbon in the 3rd round, Rivera in the 4th). The other guy will trade them but he needs Starting Pitching (I don't have piles of that). I've tried every combination of trading hitters and he just isn't interested (even though his offense sucks).

What I'd like to do is trade Josh Johnson (I'll still get his next start @ the Nationals) and another expendable dude to get two of his closers. My team is in the signature, here's his team:

DL: Bruce

DL: Hudson
Yahoo League: 10 Team Roto 5x5

C- Wieters
1B- Cabrera
2B- Cuddyer
SS- Hanley
3B- Beltre
CI: Ike Davis
MI: Andrus
LF- Tabata
CF- BJ Upton
RF- De Aza
UTIL- Maybin
B: Ackley
B: Dunn
B: Ryan Roberts

P- Greinke
P- Bumgarner
P- Josh Johnson
P- Cain
P- Marcum
P- Walden
P- League
P- Guerra
B- Balfour
B- Johnson
B- Broxton

Johnson/Milledge for Capps/Soria?

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.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
