    Roster Help and Trade Suggestions

    I was looking to add Tyler Clippard since my ERA/K's has been slipping as of late and there isn't a lot out there that will help me there except for him and a few others plus I get the saves. I currently in saves by 10 (62 total so far) but I was up by as much as 18 so they have closed the gap a bit. Problem is I am not sure who to drop for him. This is a 10 team root league. It was supposed to be full keeper but we kept 15 this past season. I am currently in 2nd, Team Mielke, by .5 points and I won last season by a lot but since league manager changed from full keeper to 15 keeper I lost Johan Santana, Matt Garza, Brandon Beachy, Cory Luebke, and Kyle Lohse. Thats why my pitching is in need now.

    Let me know who you would suggest to drop. I will include my team and full standings. I currently need Steals, BB, Runs for Hitting and Wins, K's, and ERA for pitching.

    I was thinking of dropping Billy Butler for Clippard.

      For what you need, see if Juan Pierre is available or Willie Bloomquist, or maybe Aoki from Milwaukee. Hits/Runs/Steals are easy to find. Your league does walks? Jeeze, that's nuts.

      Don't drop Butler for anyone! Especially a closer. Trade Lester because free agency is swarming with better options. Trade Quentin while he's hot because he's injury prone and is not playing every day for rest purposes.

    • I would drop Lester. That'd be a two-fer for your ERA problem. He's killing you and I don't think he's going to be that much better this year. That division is too tough.

      If you pick a hitter, I'd probably lean A-Rod then Butler

      • Yeah, I do agree. I was thinking A.Rod too and have had my doubt with Lester as well. I was thinking Butler or A.Rod because they seem to be more easily replaceable compared to most on my roster. There isn't a lot of pitchers for me to pick up if Lester turns it around and gets picked up.

        The Best or Good as of recently F/A in my league at their positions are
        1st Base:
        Adam LaRoche, Chris Davis, and Kendrys Morales. With Carlos Lee and Lance Berkman available but on the DL.

        3rd Base:
        Jed Lowrie, Kyle Seager, Chase Headley, Chris Davis, Chris Johnson, Trevor Plouffe, and Jerry Hairston Jr.

        Edwin Jackson, Scott Diamond, Alexi Ogando, Brandon McCarthy, Matt Harrison, Andy Pettitte, A.J. Burnett, Jason, Vargas, Brad, Lincoln, Hiroki Kuroda, Erik Bedard, Trevor Cahill, Felix Doubront, Bud Norris, Doug Fister(DL), Chad Billingsley, Edinson Volquez and Andrew Miller.

        Also thought Ben Revere might be alright to help with steals since there is almost no one worry of a pickup left.

        I guess now that I made this list it might seem easiest to replace Lester, then A.Rod, then Butler. But now who to get with.

    • why would you drop butler?
