I actually like your pitching staff for a 20 team league. You may be a little low on holds with Broxton likely taking over as closer. Maybe deal Broxton for a holds guy. You've got a good one in Clippard.
I'd have to look to move Chipper and maybe another piece to upgrade a little at third. You can't afford to have Chipper in a H2H lineup. Even when he's healthy he still may rest a game or two a week.
In my yearly 5x5 10 team roto non-keeper I always make sure My batters are stacked and am avg at pitching. Any advice to help me out? These are my pitchers that I have right now:
I'm thinking of dropping some of my batters to pick up Pestano,Reed ,Dotel, Myers or robertson? Any advice to stay in first at the end of the season and not lose because of the innings Cap? It seems like the last week or so of the season, my pitchers are frozen and I drop from 1st to 3rd every year. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

I love that pitching staff if your batters are stacked. I'm never dropping a hitter to add a pitcher. That's just how I work. I always want the best offensive team possible because you can spot start or find relievers like Johnny Venters, Eric OF or Tyler Clippard that can keep your innings down and provide solid strike outs and whip and era help. I'd have to know who you were considering dropping but none of those you mentioned make me warm and fuzzy.
As far as the innings cap, like I said maybe work in a few relievers to keep innings down and you may can pick up a cheap win or two and solid measurables for other cats. Also use Batter vs Pitcher stats. If a certain team or park gives one of your pitchers trouble, don't be afraid to bench him. Then you can load up at the end of the year if needed.
What do you expect from Pettite this year. I assume is innings will only be @140 but pitching for the Yankees I assume he is good for 12-14 wins if he is anything like his old self.

I wouldn't count on him winning 12-14. For one thing he needs to prove he can at least make the team first. This is probably a bad sign for Hughes who will be left out.
I'd expect somewhere around 8-10 wins with about a 4-4.3 ERA. He has to pitch in ST and extended spring training for about six weeks so he's going to miss a month I think.
Don't draft him and if you do make it late late late. 1 dollar in an acution in AL only.

I would go with AGon for sure. I would follow up with Longoria if he's there or maybe even Hanley. I look for Hanley to have a big year and has tons of upside for the second round. Longoria is safer and I think a huge bounce back year.
Looking for some trade advice, as far as who I should use in a trade. I want to improve at 1B and OF. And I need to do some free agent pick ups once waivers clear tomorrow. Don't plan to keep Perez and Doumit. Any advice on who I should trade and who I should go after?

I would look to move either Andrus or Gordon. I'd hang on to Gordon (Dee) because he has similar value as Andrus but you can get a better price for Andrus.
I would shoot for a Desmond Jennings or a Choo to help the outfield or maybe a Hosmer if you're lucky for Andrus to help at 1B. I'd also settle for Morse at first.

That's tough given that Carpenter had a set back in his recovery and is set to start the year on the DL. If he was healthy it would easily be side B. I'd give the small nod to side A because of the health of Carpenter. Though I hate Bartlett. Haren is the best player in the deal so when it's close otherwise I usually opt for the best player.
its a 12 team roto keeper league, what would you do to help out my pitching staff, or trades in general to help out this squad.
3B- R Roberts
RF- J Upton

For one thing I wouldn't have another catcher on my bench. You can get Salty or someone just as good at any point during the year. Ramos is probably available.
I also wouldn't have Loney. To me he's pretty worthless for a first baseman. You can duplicate his stats with almost anyone. Adam Laroche would be a better option.
I may look to deal Scherzer for one more steals guy. He's a name guy but his numbers suck. 1.35 whip and 4.3ish ERA. You can get those stats anywhere. I'd suggest trying to move him for a steals guy. Maybe a Boafacio. Also look at add Jason Bourgeois who's been traded to the Royals. Had 30 steals I think with almost no playing time.
