    • What are your views on Nick Markakis? Do you think he'll turn it around this season hit .300+ with maybe 20HR or is further regression likely?

    • Should I trade Verlander for Morneau or McCutchen or neither? WHo's better?

      Also, who's better, Cliff Lee or Vlerander?

    • being offered a trade 4 jeter...

      Jonathan Papelbon/Michael Bourn 4 Jeter? Should I do? I have rollins as SS & theriot on my roster. He was also trying to trade rufcall instead of Bourn.

      thoughts? can u help?

    • my opponent just tied me ERA and IP, we are tied in Wins, and my team whip is 1.27, and his is 1.33. he has no pitchers going tomorrow, and i have 5. i am benching my relievers so they dont screw anything up for me, and i only need to start 1 pitcher. please give me some advice as to who i should start just to give me that edge over my opponent and not screw up anything else in the process.

      Chris Volstad @ COL
      Colby Lewis vs DET
      John Danks vs SEA
      David Price vs TOR
      Tommy Hanson @ NYM


    • I've got four SP tomorrow and want to start two, which two would you go with:

      Matt Cain
      Tommy Hanson
      Colby Lewis
      David Price

      I need Wins and league counts Losses too. I'm currently tied in W and ahead in Losses by one. My opponent is pitching Porcello. The Yahoo Matchup ratings favor Hanson and Price slightly. I like Lewis too and could potentially use him in an RP spot depending on what you think...

    • A guy in my league wants Sandoval badly. The only guy I want on his team is Mauer. He proposed Shin Soo Choo but I rejected because I have better outfielders and Sandoval is better. I was thinking of giving him either Michael Bourn & Sandoval OR Kurt Suzuki & Sandoval for Mauer. Which do you think is the better trade, if any? Hes not an idiot so he wont let himself get stiffed if you have a better combination that helps me also heres my roster. If you think I sohuldnt trade at all you can also tell me. Heres my roster right now.

      Kurt Suzuki (C)
      Pablo Sandoval (1B,3B)
      Robinson Canó (2B)
      Mark Reynolds (1B,3B)
      Hanley Ramirez (SS)
      Michael Cuddyer (1B,OF)
      Carl Crawford (OF)
      Curtis Granderson (OF)
      Andre Ethier (OF)
      Michael Bourn (OF)
      Casey McGehee (2B,3B)
      Carlos Peña (1B)
      Hideki Matsui (Util)
      Ryan Ludwick (OF)
      Delmon Young (OF)

      • I wouldn't trade Crawford and Pujols for anybody. Crawford is in a contract year before hitting the free agency jackpot, and Pujols is..., well Pujols. If you need pitching there is a lot of pitching talent this year in the FA pool, at least in my league. Look at Texa's rotation or the back end of the Ray's rotation if they are available.

    • Would you drop Jake Peavy, Aramis and Franklin Gutierrez? I ahve a list of who I am considering.

      For Peavy: Hiroki Kuroda, Jeff Niemann, JOnathan Sanchez, Ervin Santana, Mike Pelfrey, Barry Zito, and Jaime Garcia.

      For Ramirez: Michael Young, Ian Stewart, Gordon Beckham, Chase Headley, Martin Prado, and Alberto Callaspo

      For Franklin Gutierrez: Grady Sizemore, Andruw jones, Marlon Byrd, Brett Gardner, Jose Guillen, Josh Willingham, Ryan Ludwick, Colby Rasmus, Shane Victorino,

      Please Help!!!!!!
