I've got Zimm on the DL and Crede at 3B. I was thinking about making an offer to the guy who has Figgins so I can lock up steals and help with AVG. obviously he's not a power hitter but I think he would be a nice addition to my squad if he is healthy. The guy I am trying to deal with has a lot of needs and is in 12th out of 13. I will post his roster and see if you guys can help me come up with a deal. This is a 13 team yahoo 5x5 roto league

I stopped reading after your 2nd sentence...why?
because i doubt Figgins can match his avg from last year. In fact, he'll probably be 30 points lower.

I'm thinking of offering him either Cueto or The Big Unit. And to respond to the last poster: Figgins hits 330 last season to have him hit 30 points lower and be a 300 hitter and still get we'll say 25 for conversation's sake that's not a bad return for an unproven or injury prone SP.
