      • is conor jackson available? get him. do you have an inning max. if not lose some offensive bench...two more starter get you a few more k's, maybe another win and more innings wash bad starts.....if you find couple of solid starters....look at all team's (okay maube not all teams) # 2 and 3's.... I like your line up but find someone who like JJ at SS and lose either bell or broxton in a package trade....I like bell because at some point (and i like the guy) but the bells will ring one last time for hoffman. who's availble....if jackson is grab him also look at votto on the bench for a bit...... he had 44 hr and 41 in AA and AAA over the last 2 + years as a 1B and will at some point be a great addition..... Lose thomas because he is going to lose playing time and if he is going to be on the bench, you might as well hold on to a prospect. I like your outfield / util

    • What is Adrian Gonzalez's value?

      Adrain Gonzalez is good, but I'm not the biggest fan of him. I don't trust him for some reason. I was wondering his value for a 1B, like what other 1b is worth him. I do have 4 outfielders and willing to give 1 up. I have Ichiro, Maggs, Alfonso, and Ludwick

      • For him to max out at like 33 hr you are looking at a 265 average based on the park he is in...some big swings....I think he has value but I don't really like him...I would take conor jackson over him in honesty. He is a poor man's paul konerko in my opinion. that may be a good thing but I don't trust him either. ludwick I might trade but I haven't seen enough of him to make that assessment. If you need a 1B that is the man to do it with..... who do you have at first now?

    • Would you use a waiver on John Lackey? Comes off DL in a couple days and someone just waived him.

    • someone just offered me Putz for Hoffman.......(i almost laughed). However is Putz healthy enough that he will come off the DL anytime soon?

    • My original offer to trade Justin Germano for Phil Hughes was turned down.

      Now, the other owner has countered with:
      Stephen Drew and Phil Hughes for
      Yunel Escobar and Justin Germano

      I'm in a 16-team league, with following pos:C, 1B, any 2 MI, 3B, any 2 OF, Util, 5 SP, RP and 6 bench. It's a points based league. What scores points for hitters is OPS. For pitchers, it's basically ERA (k's make a slight difference).

      What should I do?

      • I like drew for ops upside in a shortstop. I say take the trade...hughes has more of an upside an will get wins as a yankee. I imagine that this wasn't a blockbuster and its pretty even but I am not buying escobar ubless SB is a big thing in your league because that is the only thing he is guaranteed to bat drew in, maybe runs...... this is a better trade than what you proposed!

    • Cliff Lee or Chad Billingsley

      who would you want, and why?

      • 1 Reply to marcheese
      • Lee is solid if you need him but billingsley has ton of potential..he is a K pitcher in a pitchers park and division. I like lee but if billingsley is available grab him. Lee will win 12-16 with about 145 K's of he gets to 220 innings with maybe a slight sub 4 era and a 1.25 - 1.35 whip I think. Billingsley will strike out a batter an inning and come june, will be the clear favorite unless you need the stability now.....go with dodger blue!!! thats where the future's at man!!!
