    I did this last year and had a thread several thousand posts long. Post you question with all relevant details at the end of my thread and I will answer it. As far as my credentials, look at my trophy case:

    • Success, I was able to trade Alexei Ramirez for Brett Anderson. My pitching staff is now;
      Verlander
      Anderson
      Slowey
      Matusz
      Hughes
      Masterson

      Broxton
      Soria
      Chris Perez
      Madson
      Bard
      Gregerson

      My question now is; In a 12 team H2H 6x6 Keeper league, batting stats HR, RUNS, RBI, SB, AVG, TB) I have as my 3 OF, Kemp, Pence and Adam Jones who should I choose as my 4th OF Alex Rios or C. Maybin? I know how you feel about Maybin, but these are my choices as I can't trade Rios. Thanks.

    • Success. I was able to make complete a trade acquiring Brett Anderson for Alexei Ramirez. My pitching staff is now;
      Verlander
      Anderson
      Slowey
      Matusz
      Hughes

      Broxton
      Soria

      Chris Perez
      Madson
      Bard
      Gregerson

      I am trying to trade Rios and Conor Jackson for Nolasco to the original owner. If he rejects I will drop CoJack for Joba. If he accepts I will pick up either Maybin, Stubbs, or E. Cabrera to fill my open spot.

    • Hi Im in a 5x5 H2H 12 team league. I have to many solid 1B (fielder and miggy) and 3B (zimmerman and sandoval), a good problem to have but i could use a 2B ( macier isturis) dont think he's even starting the season in stating lineup. I have 3 solid OF(Eithier, Granderson, Bay). My SP is ave and i only have 1 CL (street, who's hurt) Who do you thnk i should trade, and who can i get thats maybe under the radar. Thanks

      • That is certainly a good problem. Let the market determine which of your 1B/3B you trade. A couple under the radar 2B are Figgins and Beckham as they are both slated to play 2B but don't yet have the eligibility. Maybe start offering trades like Sandoval + Granderson for Figgins + Kemp. Always try to get the best player in the deal.

    • With low value pitchers it's all about upside. You will likely end up dropping this player at some point anyways- so shoot for a home run now. With that in mind I'd go: Cahill, Bailey, Holland, Tillman, Penny
