I know nothing about Harrington, sorry, but if hes young, take it. Avilies was in the minors this year, and I love young guys in deep leagues.
You got a decent team, but you need a better rotation. Rumors speading that Morales will be out until September, so trade Morales for a guy like Gallardo or Wainwright. in the message tell him he will miss 2 weeks.
I want to trade away Holliday for a speed guy: Crawford, Ichiro, or Upton... I don't think Crawford is really feasible.

I've been struggling in 3rd to 5th place all season. I'm low in s/b's, avg, saves era/whip and everyone is tight for wins and k's. I've made some trades and lost some to injuries(morales) and also dropped some (lind, coghlan, A. Jones, who i just picked back up) and some others. People in my leage are really stingy when it comes to trades. Unless you are giving away one of your top guys, there not interested. Myself on the other hand, do not mind having a lower ranked player that is killing the ball all season rather than a top ranked player that SHOULD be killing it... Anyways here is my team and maybe you can give me some trade suggestions or pickups. I know I am low on S/P's but there is an innings max and I can always play matchups in the second half if I want to. One last thing, Ive been playing with 2 catchersmost of this season but just dropped napoli recently, should I pick him back up? because those extra stats each week add up.
(C) M. Montero
(1b) M. Cabrera and T. Glaus
(2b) C. Utley and H. Kendrick
(3b) S. Rolen andK. Kouzmanoff
(ss) J. Reyes and B. Zobrist
(OF) A. Huff, C. Gonzalez, C. Hart, A. Pagan, A. Jones, D. Young
(DL) J. Ellsbury
(S/P) U. Jimenez, J. Lester, M. Pelfrey,
(R/P) A. Bailey, J. Rauch, B. Lidge
Here is a trade that I thought of.
How does this look? If it doesn't look like i'm giving up enough, who else shoul I put up or switch? I don't mind throwing extra players in the deal because there are plenty of players on the wire that I want. Like I said, these guy's in my league are in love with their teams or how they drafted or something so I have to make it an offer that they cannot resist. Thanks for any help.
P.S. This Manager with proposed trade is in desperate need of a( 2nd) and (SS)
I just landed Morneau and Strasburg for Dunn, B. Roberts, Nolasco, and J. Garcia in my 14 team DYNASTY league. I now have to choose from Longo, Reyes, Braun, Morales, Morneau, Cliff Lee, Gallardo, King Felix, and Strasberg for keepers. I keep 8. I'm really trying to trade some of them to upgrade before next season. Talk about a loaded team! What 8 would you keep if I cant trade them

Pretty even. whoever has the better backup wins. I think Johson will hit 25 this year, same with Rolen... This must be the point of the trade since they dont help in much other categories, but Rolen is a great AVG hitter.
