    • I need a good short stop any ideas? right now i have j.j. hardy

    • my lineup is as follows

      carlos gomez
      ryan howard

      Corey hart
      garret atkins (i have no room for him)

      C.J. Wilson
      Mike Gonzalez
      Felix Hernandez
      Brett Myers
      Francisco Liriano

      Since i need to improve on a few stats i just made a trade and it went through, tell me if you thought it was a good or bad more (explanations please)

      I offered
      Ryan Howard

      Brandon Phillips
      Josh Beckett

      my reasoning
      i wanted to get rid fo volquez while he had high value (this trade was before his terrible start tonite), i think his value is at its peak and he will fall off in the second half. Beckett is soldi with a very low whip and a high strikeout rate and his ERA will be mid to low 3's with a 1.15 WHIP max and he will get more wins, its boston.

      Secondly, i have no room to start atkins who is great, so i figured i get rid of howards .220 batting average, get rid of figgins cuz hes injured often, he doesnt bring any runs in, all he is good for is 100 runs, 35-40 SBs, and a .270 BA.

      Now i have phillips in there giving me power up and down my roster, i can put in atkins in the utility spot and get his high average put to work (predict he'll hit 25-100-.308)

      I have the league blown away by 35 saves or more so i dont need any closer, even if it is soria (my best one)

      I need a solid ace because myers blows (im holding him just waiting for him to come around)
      so i picked up scott baker, dropped headley and picked up sheffield

      My roster is solid now to me, let me know what you think

      Furthermore, i have a trade out where im offering atkins for ellsbury (most likely to be accepted)

      there are 12 people in the league, its a cash prize league between friend 500 bucks on the line. LET ME KNOW THANKS

    • hey dude. Is it time to drop Ludwick and pick up Hermida, Willingham, Ankiel, or Sheffield from the FA? Ludwick is absolutely sucking these weeks.

      Also, Is trading Hunter Pence for Rios a good move for me for 2nd half? I

      also need a catcher. I drafted Varitek and he sucked so I dropped him for Pierzynski. Is that good? other Catcher available are Flores, Pudge, Snyder, thats all the notable ones left. I play in a 12 team mix roto league

    • my pitchers are as followed for a weekly league

      SP - Jake Peavy
      SP - Brandon Webb
      SP - Cole Hamels
      SP - Rich Harden
      SP - Tim Lincecum
      RP - Brain Fuentes
      RP - Joe Nathan
      P - ???

      Should i put Justin Duchscherer (8-4, 1.99 era) or Trevor Hoffman (30 Ks, 15 Saves)

    • Would you start Haren against the BoSox today?
      What do you expect from


      for the rest of the year?

      • all signs point to no on haren. those three will be fine. they should play every day

        sox are hot, dbacks are sucking, beckett beat the dbacks last year and is undefeated at home, while haren is 1-3 vs the sox

        however, haren did beat the sox last year and did pretty well against the al east in general. this is why the dbacks got haren; to break up losing streaks

        still, bench him, this is fantasy; only the numbers on the last day count

    • 12 team Roto:

      I would like to trade away some excess closers and starters to improve my offense. My biggest needs for pitching is WHIP and ERA (I'm getting only 4 points for each of them). Although it is roto so every category is important in the long run.
      My starters are:
      Beckett, Bedard, Verlander, Harang, Shields, Cain, and Haren.
      My closers are Capps, Valverde, Rauch, Wagner and Gonzalez (on the DL).

      If I were to part with 2 starters and 1 closer trying to get the biggest return while keeping quality for myself, which would I deal?

      Keeping in mind that I want to deal the pitchers for quality hitters, I would want to replace some with quality FA. Available FA starters include: Pettite, Guthrie, Lirano, Buchholz, McGowan, and Weaver. Who might I want from this crew.

      Any other advice that comes to mind would be appreciated.
