12 team keeper league, standard cats
With this Hallady/Lee trade my keeper options get a little screwed up. My plan was to offer up Cliff Lee along with Mark Reynolds in a trade to get a Halladay or Lincecum or even Felix. However, now that Lee is in Seattle I think he losses value and my trading partners will lose interest......If I can't make a deal this offseason I have to think up a contingency plan. Please give me some help.
Keep 5 (3 hitters, 2 pitchers)
My final roster
C - Kurt Suzuki
1B - Albert Pujols
2B - Brandon Phillips
3B - Mark Reynolds
3B - Michael Young

OF - Julio Borbon
SP - Brandon Webb

Webb's injury doesn't consern you? I haven't kept myself updated on his status so I really don't know what to expect....
I do know that Cain has been very close to becoming an ace over the past couple of years. He just needed some run support, which he seems to have gotten.
I'm deifinitely considering Webb....And to think, I had Webb and Peavy on my team at the beftining of the year thinking they were my forsure keepers?!? Oh well..

I was considering trying that with Reynolds......I'll have the 11th pick in the draft, which is close to where he should land. If not I could snag a JUpton or ArRamirez.....Maybe a stretch to think Upton will be there but I wouldn't put it past the first 10 drafters.
Dude I would keep Lee, Seattle has like the best defensive infield in the league. Plus It has now been made public that Lee wants a big time contract so he will have to perform this year in order to get it. Plus he will be the #2 in Seattle, doesn't mean that much but in fantasy terms he will be going up against lesser pitchers the majority of the time.
