    Wieters, Reimold, and Beckham

    Hey...I have been fortunate to pick up all three this year. All are currently on my roster. I am 3rd (5.5 games out of 1st) in a 12 team Yahoo! Public head-to-head league (8 standard categories).

    I am solid in all areas but my HRs and RBIs are questionable since neither Wieters nor Reimold are proven major league HR hitters and Beckham tends to be more of an average hitter with a wood bat. I just traded Hank Blalock for Miguel Cabrera (if the league does not reject the trade). Blalock and Kinsler have provided most of my HRs with input from Cameron, Kubel, and Helton. I will have Manny back in 4 weeks.

    My question is...

    Do you think that I can get a proven top 50 bat for any of the three and is it worth it if I might only need he bat for a month?

      • Well...the guy is in last place in the league. It wasn't a straight up trade. I picked up Juan Pierre off waivers (I am fine in SB...I have Brian Roberts and Ian Kinsler, plus I have Manny Ramirez since Pierre will just be occupying left field for another 4 weeks).

        Then I packaged Blalock and Pierre for Miguel Cabrera and Elijah Dukes. He ate it up. I will drop Dukes once the trade goes through and get me a decent bat. So essentially I got Cabrera for Blalock since I didn't really need Pierre and his PT will be cut in 4 weeks. He got Blalock and a guy that will be on the bench in a month.
