    Need Help with My Team

    H2H winner's league. I've lost just about every matchup this year with what I consider a very good team (underperforming in overall stats too). I'm in 1st place in my other 3 non-winner leagues too, so I'm a pretty decent manager. Here's my team:

    C- Napoli
    1B- A-Gon
    2B- Pedroia
    3B- Sandoval
    SS- Gordon
    OF- Braun
    OF- A.Craig
    OF- Viciedo
    UTIL- Ploufe
    UTIL- G.Blanco
    BN- Morneau
    BN- Boesch
    BN- Cescpedes
    DL- C.Crawford

    SP- Wainwright
    SP- J.Johnson
    RP- Jansen
    RP- Cook
    P- M.Moore
    P- Worley
    P- Harrison
    P- Buchholz
    BN- G.Richards
    BN- Beachy (DL)

    I've proposed several trades sending hitters to upgrade pitching, all have been close, but everybody just wants Braun, but for the likes of Greinke or Bumgarner as the centerpieces.

    Any advice on what to do here? FA pool is pretty thin in this league, there is more hitting available than SP and absolutely NO potential closers (as of today). Any trades I could try? HELP!!! I've never missed the playoffs in a H2H league playing since 2002. Thanks. -Dean

    • Looks like you could use hitters that hit for average and score runs. You have some good power hitters who are underperforming that you should stay with, but I would not want viciedo starting (put in cespedes whenever hes healthy) and make a trade.

      as for pitching, trade buchholz (while he's hot) for a starter and closer if you can. ive had 3 closers (hanrahan, casilla, capps) all season theyre not dominant but i lead in saves.

      • Thank you very much. I will take your advice and start offering trades. BTW, dropped Viciedo and claimed K.Morales off waivers this morning. Good move? Tank was very good for me when I had him, if he gets back into a groove again I will most likely try to grab him again. Cescpedes I will start again over Morneau once he proves he's back.

    • replace blanco , hes cooling off .
