Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Well, I've been answering your questions all day long. Just tired of surfing the boards for them, so figured I'd start a topic to handle them. I'll provide information and stats to back the information up if needed. I also want to note I am not trying to take over Cardinal fans terrific topic. I'm just here to help out. ^_^ So ask away.

.300, 100 Rs, 5 HRs, 60 RBIs, 50 SBs
.280, 95-100 Rs, 25-28 HRs, 90-95 RBIs, 18-22 SBs
So you trade some average and steals for HRs and RBIs. What are the needs of both teams? Both teams could win in this case... and you have to consider Figgins positional eligibility when talking Fantasy Baseball.

Greinke... and this is why.
Greinke has a job no question(barring another personal breakdown)... Jackson will have to fight for one when Kazmir and Garza come back from the DL. With fantasy teams, you want to go the safer route more often than not.
players id get
players id trade

Ok one by one here.
Catchers, you're looking:
.300, 80 R, 25-30 HRs, 100 RBIs
.270, 45-50 Rs, 15 HRs, 60 RBIs
This is very good. And considering Upton is in the FA pool, replacing Ankiel is no problem. Losing Rivera will hurt. Wilson and Ryan are good options, though Ryan should split saves with Accardo for a bit.
With Billingsley I'm looking at
12-13 Ws, 170 Ks, 3.75 ERA, 1.30 WHIP
So he's a good pick-up. Gallardo is terrific, though the surgery may be cause for concern... I wouldn't jump on him so fast. Volquez needs another solid start before you can jump on his bandwagon... control has always been an issue for him, if he pitches well again, pick him up. Owings is good, but not worth considering over Billingsley. So if you make the trade, hold onto him until Volquez or Gallardo make a good start, another good start in Volquez's case.
Back to your closer options. Ryan is a big IF. Tommy John surgery is a concern. Wilson should have Tex's closer job locked up now, though if he struggles Benoit may step up... when on the other hand, no one is taking Rivera's job. Really, you are only risking your saves in this trade(considering you grab Upton)... so how much do you value that stat in your league?
I need to add some pitching to my team, this is what i have. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks

Murphy and Lopez are good trade bait now while their numbers are hot. realisticly, Murphy won't stay this hot. He doesn't have alot of pop, and the 2 swipes... first of his career. Lopez is gonna remain subpar offensively... might reach 10 dingers this year, but don't look for much else from him. Getting some pitching in exchange for these two now is ideal.
