What do I do with AROD??? I've got him on the DL right now and with the news that he'll be back soon I don't know who take out of my lineup/trade away to make room for him back in my lineup, any thoughts?
My team right is as follows...
C- Brandon Inge (C, 3B, OF)
1B- Joey Votto (1B)
2B-Orlando Hudson (2B)
3B- Miguel Cabrera (1B, 3B)
SS-Johnny Peralta (SS)
OF-Alfonso Soriano (OF)
OF-Jason Bay (OF)
OF- Carlos Beltran (OF)
Util- Jacoby Ellsbury (OF)
Bench- Chone Figgins (2B, 3B)
DL- Alex Rodriguez (3B)
make a deal for a SS and C. beltran or jacoby, inge and figgins alone could probably bring you back a pretty good pair, and they are your most expendable (you probably won't bring in anyone for peralta, so unless someone requests him to make a deal happen, plan on dropping him).
make sure you get a good catcher too, inge is playing way over his head and has higher value than he will be worth in a month, but if you end up holding onto him as a bench player, it's not the worst thing in the world with 3 position eligibility.
SS and C are your two biggest problems and i would address them now while you have an extra player to mess around with. just make sure you hold onto arod, he's gonna be great as always and you'll want him around, make sure any trade you do make leaves a slot open for him in the lineup.

just a little note if your gonna trade someone trade A-rod not Inge. Inge is having a great year all signs point to him being healthy because most of his injury problems were related to him being a catcher. now hes playing 3rd he has more flexability in position slots than A-rod does. And hes batting in a better lineup where hes not the most feared player. nice avg with 301 20RBI 20R and 8HR so far
Take out Joey Votto and move cabrera to 1B. Put A-Rod in 3B.
What I would do also is try to get rid of one of your OF or chone figgins, you may be able to get a trade for a good SS, 2B or better OF instead.
