    • how can I add a player not listed by yahoo?

    • can u named any power hitters that i can get???

    • is that a good deal by itself??

      markakis and Verlander for Dunn/Lowell/Lilly

      • 1 Reply to Vaiin
      • if u are getting markakis and verlander it would be a very good deal...dunn is consisten with having great power numbers...he has hit at least 40 homeruns the past 3 seasons in a row but his average sucks..he's lucky to get into the 260 range and he strikes out a lot and his obp sucks...its pretty much either he hits a homerun or he strikes out..but markakis can bat over 300...get 20-30 homeruns...get over 100 rbi's...about 20 steals and has a good obp...and verlander will probably get whoever is getting him18 wins and 200 k's especially with the offense detroit has now...lowell had a great year last year but doubt he will repeat it..so whoever is getting markakis and verland do the deal

    • If you could trade Markakis for Manny would you do it?.....I currently have Markakis, but am afraid of him this year. Everyone is telling me his numbers will regress from last year. What can I expect from him?

      • 1 Reply to Jerrod J
      • well i like markakis a lot but he has no other hitting besides him and roberts now that they lost tejada so some categories of his stats will probably go down..but i still think he is going to have a great year. you can expect
        Avg-300-310
        Rbi's-100
        Home Runs-25-30
        Sb-low 20's
        Runs-85
        So i still think he is going to have a great year. i think his run and rbi total will go down but i think his homerun, steals, and average will go up
        But manny was not himself last year..mainly because a strained oblique limited him to miniscule power numbers(20 homeruns)but once many got healthy at the end of the season he was doing like he did every other season. so my predicitons for many are
        Avg-315
        Rbi's-110
        Home Runs-30-35
        Runs-96
        Now i don't like manny but i have too admit the dude can flat out hit. so there are my comparisons in numbers for predictions of this year

    • can u named any power hitters that i can get???

    • Im in a 6 team league....here are my starters

      Webb
      Lackey (DL) replace with Lincecum
      C. Young
      Smoltz
      R. Hill
      Maine


      is rich hill even worth a roster spot on a 6 team league...everyone keeps saying he is a good pitcher, but i just dont see it, he is so inconsistent and i get so agrivated at him, he'll pitch a decent game then get blown up the next.....also, do you think Maine will be good this year?

      Some FA SPs are J.Shields, Vazquez, Ian Kennedy, Billingsly, Burnett, Harden, and R. Johnson

    • should i make the trade for Torri Hunter and im giving up Brandon Lyon and Jeremy Hermida. my OF is

      michael Bourn
      jeff francour
      grady sizemore
      mark teahan
      corey patterson

      but I still have to play one at UTIL spot

    • What can I expect from these guys?

      What can I expect out of Rollins, Utley, and Teixeira this year?.....Can rollins put up numbers similar to last year or was that his career year?....what everyone think about utley this year?...can he hit .325+ again?

      please predict these guys stats

      • 1 Reply to Jerrod J
      • Rollins
        Avg-280-290
        Home runs-25-30
        Rbi's-80-85
        Steals-35-40
        Rollins has been consistent with his numbers and this is what i am predicting.

        Tixiera
        Avg-290-300
        Rbi's-115-120
        Home Runs-40
        Runs-100-105
        Tixiera had a good first season with the braves last year. I am predicting an increase in homeruns but a slight decrease in average..everything else i think is going to increase a bit...he is now settled in and he is in the national league.

        Chase Utley
        Avg-320-330
        Home Runs-30
        Rbi's-115
        sb-10-15
        Runs-125
        Chase Utley has some injury problems and missed a good amount of games and still put up the numbers he did. So i am predicting an increase in homeruns and everything else should stay close to the same. Utley is the perfect all around player and has a great swing and has a great lineup that he is in.. should have a BIG year. Those are my predictions
