    • I have Napoli as my #1 Catcher and J.P.A on the bench should i drop JP and roll with one catcher then pick up Peavy or Dempster for my rotation or Beltran as my 5th OF. 8 team league 15 pick up per season

    • 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

      • Alex Gordon and Freddie Freeman are both struggling..who do you feel has a better chance of turning the season around, and will have a better year..

        Alex Gordon
        Freddie Freeman

    • 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

    • 12 team 5x5 roto I need more K's from my SP and both Danny Duffy and Peavy are F/A's. I have either Reimold or LaRoche to drop for either. Thoughts? Thanks.

      • You can only wonder from the past if any of them are the "real deal" from what we see this year so far. LaRoche usually fades and goes into his usual slumps and the same could be said for Reimbold. If I really had to have a pitcher I think I would take a flyer on Duffy he has been electric so far and has pretty good offense behind him with adequate bullpen. Peavy I am not so convinced just yet I need to see a few more starts from him and if he does well he will be gone is the problem there. I would probably drop Reimbold and go with Duffy if I was hurting for Ks and some wins. Good luck Bob

    • will u check out my post i just put it up 2 min ago , its subject says thinking of trading stanton, thx man

    • Would you trade Matt Holliday and Carlos Santana for Dustin Pedroia and Joe Mauer?

      I have Espinosa and Altuve at 2B in a 20 team keeper league. My other OFers are Grandy, BJ Upton , and Bourn.

      What do you think?

      • No becaue you are giving up tooo much HR/RBIs.Mauer may hit .300 but 15 homeruns at the most. I see mostly speed on your team so cant see you giving up that much. Bourn will hit no homeruns is the thing. He may score 90 runs and steal 50 bases again but minimal homers or rbis. Upton should be ready to go this weekend I am reading and I think he will play friday or saturday if he doesnt have a setback. You would improve on batting average and runs scored but lose homeruns and rbis is what I see without seeing the rest of your lineup and if Mauer goes down your SOL.

    • Ulbaldo Jiminez worth picking up? He's available in both of my leagues...

      C- Migeul Montero

      2nd- Robinson Cano
      3rd- Pablo Sandavol
      SS- Erik Aybar

      OF- michael Bourn
      OF- Hunter Pence
      Utility-
      Bench: Nick Swisher
      bench: Jon Jay
      bench: David Murphy
      DL: Chris Young

      SP: Cliff Lee
      SP: Jon Lester
      RP- Rivera

      This is the trade:
      I have been proposed- Miguel Cabrera and Ian Kennedy for Chris Young, Jon Lester, and possibly Jon Jay. Should I? I already have fielder at first and unsure if should have two detroit players where could put that person on days they dont play...

      • Yes take Cabrera and Kennedy. Forget about the days off. Over the longhaul you are ahead on this deal. Since you are getting Kennedy for Lester your not losing much but Cabrera really strengthens allready a good lineup. You can insert him at utility and rock and roll on offense. Keep an eye on Buchholtz......dont let him hurt you. He hasnt pitched well for 1 1/2 years now.

    • One more:


      what SP do you think I could get for paul konerko and brandon mccarthy? or what about just konerko
