Flip that Closer!

Postby Dingbat » Wed Jun 24, 2009 1:43 pm

I'm currently leading in saves, and I just picked up Dan Meyer to keep the rest of my relief corps company, so I'm considering proposing 2-for-1 swaps to upgrade my offense. Managers in my league who could be in the market for saves have the following players of interest in areas where I could benefit from an upgrade (mostly 2B, SS, 3B, OF):

Brandon Phillips
Aaron Hill
Adam Lind
Nelson Cruz
Evan Longoria
Carlos Beltran
Grady Sizemore
Jason Bartlett
Torii Hunter
Brad Hawpe
B.J. Upton
Albert Pujols (maybe Fielder + RP?)

Based on my roster, do you see any reasonable 2-for-1 offers I could make that would improve my team?

10-Team Roto, 7x7 (5x5 + H,OPS,K/BB,QS)

C: Evan Gattis
1B: Edwin Encarnacion
2B: Brian Dozier
SS: Troy Tulowitzki
3B: Manny Machado
OF: Jose Bautista
OF: Charlie Blackmon
OF: Melky Cabrera
UT: Anthony Rizzo
UT: Ben Revere
BN: Gregory Polanco, Brandon Belt, Josh Harrison

SP: Jordan Zimmermann
RP: Koji Uehara
P: Hisashi Iwakuma
P: Masahiro Tanaka
P: Hyun-jin Ryu
P: Joaquin Benoit
P: Jenrry Mejia
P: Brad Boxberger
BN: Jake McGee, Matt Shoemaker, Danny Salazar, Brandon McCarthy

Vlad and a closer for Upton?

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.

Not everyone agrees with me, but I'm a huge fan of Aaron Hill. Maybe try shopping Rafael Soriano & Lopez for Hill. If that doesn't work, I think Bartlett could be a decent upgrade at SS and I'd try the same combination for him.
