You could certain use some more HR/RBIs/OPS and Bruce would provide that. You could I suppose as you still have a pretty good pitching staff. If Lance Lynn of St Louis is available I would get him too and drop Santiago maybe. Looks like they hogged the closers in your league but you did pretty good for a 12 team league. Yeah I think you could live without Haren but you would be giving up 16-17 wins. Bruce, however, provides some extra power that you could use too. Good luck with it. Whatever you decide.

Maybin is stolen bases thats pretty much it. He wont hit many homers in San Diego. Ike Davis can hit once he gets going and Pena provides good power although will never hit for average. I give Pena the benefit of the doubt because he is back home in Tampa which may help with his power production off the bench. Trumbo can hit he just doesnt have a place to play right now and fumbled at 3b allready so hopefully he can DH unless Socsia wants to give him another chance there otherwise he may be platooning with Kendry Morales but dont know how that is gonna turn out just yet. I like JD Martinez and scooped him up where available in myother leagues and drafted him in most as a sleeper. He is off to a decent start so I would keep him and is batting 3rd in Houston. So first choice would be Maybin. D. Young should get plenty of RBI opportunities with Detroit and can hit .280 so is valuable on your bench and worth keeping for down the road. Remember he was playing at Target Field in Minn and you cant hit homers there so he could hit 20-25 in Detroit where the fences are a little friendlier. Good luck.
6x6 10 team daily league. I'm not worried about the pitching because I prefer to move guys in and out to get the best match ups and it tends to work for me.
In a 6x6 league
C - Mauer
1b - Edwin Encarnarcion
2b - Ryan Roberts (tentatively agreed on trade for Rickie Weeks)
3b - Emilio Bonafacio
SS - Starlin Castro
IF - Cozart
OF - Giancarlo Stanton
OF - Carlos Gonzalez
OF - Matt Kemp (fell to my lap in the draft)
OF - Adam Jones
OF - Josh Willingham
P - Grienke
P - Aroldis Chapman (for K's and low whip, era...so far)
P - Balfour
SP - Stephen Strasburg
SP - Jordan Zimmerman
SP - Josh Johnson
RP - Heath Bell (tentatively trading for Weeks)
RP - Axford
Bench - Vance Worley (this is my revolving door position, usually him, Holland, Marrow, Loesch, whoever has the best match up that day.
I know I could move an OF to help out in other places but I cant decide who or for who. Any ideas?

Well the only thing you will be short on saves with only one closer. Aroldis Chapman could end up being Cincinnati's closer if he can keep it going but that remains to be seen as they are talking about putting him back in the rotation too. The only outfielder I see as trade bait would be Willingham for another pitcher or topshelf closer if you can get one since he is hot right now. He is the one of those five who will cool off eventually. Holland is looking good so far and should get wins with Texas. Stanton should get going with the power soon I would think although Miami is a hard place to his it out they are saying. Good luck
what SP do you think I could get for paul konerko and brandon mccarthy? or what about just konerko
some notable guys on teams looking for a 1B:
team 1: gallardo, haren, beckett
team 2: wainwright, price, hamels
he doesnt have to be from those teams but my pitching is my week spot and i have votto at 1B, id move dustin ackley into my INF slot (my full team is on my previous post if you want/need it)
should i dump votto for a solid pitcher and a solid hitter

Always make a trade if you can to benefit YOU. Konerko is a sold 100 rbi man with 25-30 homers. Team 1 I would go after Haren first and Beckett second. Team 2 I would go after Hamels first and Price secondly. Of all of these I would go after Hamels. Wins/whip/Era he offers it all.
Would you rather Braun/Phillips or Cano/Choo
the team with braun can only keep 4 players and already has Bautista, Pujols, J.Upton, S.Castro...So Braun would be traded for draft picks if Cano isnt gotten

If Aybar can bat for avg say .280 and stay at the top of the Angels lineup versus the bottom I would give him the nod and he will steal 25 bases and score 90-100 runs. Cozart shows promise if he can stay healthy and has some pop in his bat so I would like to rate him 2nd. Desmond is doing what he did last year. Starts out hot and then goes into a funk and bat .200 down the stretch but maybe he can keep it going who is to say. I would have to go with Aybar on your list though................good luck.
any advice or thoughts on my teams?

Fister had a setback so dont know when he will be back may be sometime in May now. Like your two setup guys and see you watch the waiver wire pretty close with Cishek, Reimbold and Lynn on team 2. VMart is toast to the best of my knowledge so you can dump him off your team as soon as somebody is DL eligible so you arent wasting a roster spot on team 2. Stick with Henderson Alvarez he may have a couple of rough outings but give him a good chance on your team. Shows uncanny control and stuff for being so young. I actually drafted him in the late rounds in a couple of my leagues as a 5th or 6th starter. Pitching might be a little weak with team 1 but you have a good blend of power and speed on offense so just keep an eye out for another starter maybe. Team 2 is pretty strong and you should fare well in that league from what I see. You've done well for 12 teams leagues. Good luck with them Domination.
