    Answering Questions....ask away

    I know some questions go unanswered so I'm here to lend my opinion. Maybe it helps...maybe it don't. Ask away and find out!!

    • Hamilton was dropped in one of my leagues. Given he is out 2 weeks to 2 months (or more), and he hasn't played anything near last year, is he worth a #1 waiver? Who could I drop - Smoltz and put Votto on the DL?

      Here's my team:

      • I would do one of two things.

        Trade away Cantu/Bourn/Hairston for a closer or package Bourn/Cantu for a good closer. Bourn keeps getting better, the longer you hang onto him the better his value will be. So, I would package two of them in my offers.

        OR

        Watch the St. Louis 2B. Thurston, Schumaker and Ryan are all pretty good. One of them will emerge as a solid starter the rest of the way out. With Greene and Glaus out they are all playing now, but I'm not sure which will stay/go when both get healthy.

        Clint Barmes has emerged as quality fantasy starter at 2B with new manager in town. I'd rather have him over Hairston.

        A couple leagues still have Zobrist available. If he's available pick him up NOW. I believe he is listed at SS, 3B and OF. I know you need 2B, but Zobrist is too good to be a FA.

        If you do a package deal for a closer, then I would pick up one of those that I listed for 2B.

    • I have a BUNCH of pitching...Which pitchers should I trade away for hitting and what should I look to be able to get (Torri Hunter/Mark Texiera/better/worse?

      What about Haren/Jurrjens/Rios for Mark Texiera/Franklin? ask for more/less/about right

      Any other ideas with other pitchers?

      • You can't trade Ervin, nobody will give you anything for him. Felix could prolly land you a decent position guy.

        "What about Haren/Jurrjens/Rios for Mark Texiera/Franklin" I think your giving a bit too much, but it is Texiera and he should post monster numbers the rest of the way. I would rather get a different pitcher than Franklin. He's good, but I'd rather have a for sure closer in the deal.

        You're on the right track. First Base is your main need. You look pretty solid everywhere else.

    • hanley and maine or hamilton, sabathia, mike gonzalez, and smoltz??? in a h2h league

    • Who is getting the btr deal
      hanley and pence 4
      ludwick martinez and jenks

    • first question: should i give up: aaron hill, ryan franklin, and javier vasquez for brandon phillips and krod? 12 team h2h k per 9 is a cat. i thought i was giving to much but im sellin high on 2 guys
      second question: 12 team league.. drop soto? hes been killin me

      • 1 Reply to Steve
      • First, don't trade. I don't think you're really selling high. Vazquez is great, wins and K machine. Hill is solid if he stays healthy and Franklin is great for saves and/or holds. Phillips is a great 2B and I love K-Rod, but it's not enough quality for your three.

        Second, absolutely get rid of Soto, he's a bum on offense and defense.

      Hi,

      Who's winning ?

      Team A gets : Garza & Sherrill
      Team B gets : Cliff Lee

      Thanks

    • I have one more player add for this week and i need to pick up a cheap win if i find a good match up. I have 4 starters left to his 5 and he is up 1 win on me so i need to pick a good match up. I can get Maine @ Nats tom or Washburn vs MIN or Scott Richman vs KC...do one of these jump out as a def win or should i wait and pick one up starting sunday that may give me a better chance?

      thanks
