Loney, hands down
Yes Bill Hall said he will revert to 30-35 homeruns, but he wasnt a homerun hitter in the minors and he only hit that many one year. He also is an Ave Killer and Ks way to many times.
Loney can easily reach Hall's homerun total, and will surpass his total...............short term and long term
I am in a 12 team head to head league and have the chance to have the best starting pitching in the league. However, I am not sure if it's worth the power id be giving up. Here is my current team and the possible offer....let me know what you think
C Martin 1B Texiera 2B Kinsler SS Peralta 3B Wright OF Burrell, Hart, Soriano UTIL Ryan Howard
SP Lincecum, Dice-K, Vasquez, Harang, Chris Young, Danks, Blanton, Nick Blackburn, Maine
RP Sherrill, Percival, Soria
Trade: I give Texiera for Haren and Zombrano
I can move howard to first and pick up a UTIL...what do you think?

Dnt do it......Like you just said, you have the best pitching staff.......
youve got a bunch of huge K guys to win any weekly matchup..............plus the wins......no point in over exagerating a stat you already win......
Your pitching already looks very solid. Im not sure you really need to go out and get haren although he would be a stellar pickup the way hes been pitching. Your offense is solid throughout it may create a hole to trade away teixera. Tough Call. Depends who you can slide into that util spot.

Thats rediculous................you dnt ever bench a first rounder......PERIOD
there is no possible way he can kill you more than some players out there........in other words.....keep him in there

Wow, you team is great, but then again its an 8 team league, which means the possibility of another team that looks like the roman empire is very likely.
You know you team is good when you have Howard on the bench.....lol
Pedroia or Kendrix.....well it all depends on your needs......ave. help or runs...etc............overall Id take Pedoia becasue of the more runs scored and more power
good thing your team doesnt have steals......lol
what should I do to improve my team I am last and not gaining groundin a 12 team mix

Your team is just starting out slow. You should be fine. I would try to somehow to get more pitching.
I dnt like to have that many hitters on my bench cause its stats I am not able to get......
So with that in mind try to find a taker for some like Reynolds to bring you a good pitcher. Try a buy low canidate like chad billingsley, who shld pick it up. I am a big Encarnacion fan, so you dnt ness need him, unless your league has a UTIL spot.
If you drop anyone try to pick up big K guys...........and dnt trade CC....he will pick it back up
