Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Well in a default 5x5 12 teamer I have Ryan Howard soon to be off the DL, and I guess I could use his homers, I hope he can keep a decent average since he's been slumping the last 2 years. So who do I drop on my team to get him off of the only DL spot?
C Salvador Perez (KC - C)
1B Paul Goldschmidt (Ari - 1B)
2B Robinson Cano (NYY - 2B)
3B Adrian Beltre (Tex - 3B)
SS Starlin Castro (ChC - SS)
OF Curtis Granderson (NYY - OF)
OF Ryan Braun (Mil - OF)
OF Martin Prado (Atl - 3B,OF)
Util Eric Hosmer (KC - 1B)
Util Brandon Phillips (Cin - 2B)
BN Mike Aviles (Bos - 2B,3B,SS)
BN Josh Reddick (Oak - OF)
DL Ryan Howard (Phi - 1B)
SP Yovani Gallardo (Mil - SP)
SP Jason Hammel (Bal - SP,RP)
RP Lance Lynn (StL - SP,RP)
RP Santiago Casilla (SF - RP)
P Johnny Cueto (Cin - SP)
P John Axford (Mil - RP)
P James McDonald (Pit - SP)
P Justin Masterson (CLE - SP)
BN Ryan Cook (Oak - RP)
BN Gio Gonzalez (Was - SP)
BN Jake Peavy (CWS - SP)
I think it's down to Aviles, Reddick, Hosmer, or Masterson.. but I'm not sure. What's best for my team?
Is the Reddick ride over? Same as Aviles? Aviles is batting in the 8th spot and I got him super cheap.
Also, is my team good enough to be championship caliber? My last 2 weeks of pitching have been pretty horrid, but I'm in 2nd and just behind.
I also could use a secondary catcher, Avila, Arencibia, and Doumit are the best available. Should I pick up any of them? Or maybe pick up Lucroy for DL? Please anyone help!!! Thanks!!

I'll try to trade Axford and Howard for Jansen and someone else... The problem is I just got Axford in a trade thinking he would rebound. I traded Morse, Freese, and Pence + Darvish, Myers, and Sanchez FOR Braun, Prado + Mcdonald and Axford
