SP's- Lohse,Buehrle, ( I Usually Spot Start )
I Would say Try to keep Chipper.I would try to get like Ellsbury/Pedroia/Papelbon/Francisco Rodriguez/Chase Utley/Hanley Ramirez etc.You would Have to give up some Big Guns to get them But It would Pay off.Another Idea Is to get a Co Manager.I am In a Keeper League and I did Well In the 1st Round Last Season and This Season and then Things Started Going Downhill Fast.I am in a 5 game losing streak coming into this week.and i am In a dog fight with the 4 place team right now.10 teams and i am in 8th.I have gotton a Co Manager and he knows what he is doing and has gotton some big Trades for me.Try it and see what you think.Good luck this season Keep on fighting to get into the playoffs.Kick tail okay.

"First, keep Furcal, Martin & Pence. Second, learn to spell Tejada."
Martin at least is a keeper, he was my backup last year, and I needed him then, but had to decide tween him and McCann over the offseason. McCann just offers more of what I needed from the C slot (power), and I have plenty of speed elswhere.
NEW LINEUP: I Traded Glaus,Rios,Carpenter FOR Dice-K, Bedard, A.Gordan.

"Trade Chipper Jones for a young stud immediately. Give up on this season and trade for keepers -- players like Joba Chaimberlain (sic), Evan Longoria and Matt Kemp come to mind."
No one in their right mind is going to trade Evan.
Maybe Joba, or Kemp if he gets out of LA.

Thnx Verry Much, But It Seems Like I Have To Many OF's As It Is. But I Made A reallllly Stupid Trade: =( Earlier This Year, I Traded A-Ram,Soriano,Putz for Chipper,Rios,Saunders. I Feel Dumb About It Now. But I Have Bounced Back Lately.
What are your keeper rules?
In my league we get to keep 3 position players, 3 pitchers, and then 1 other player (Either potcher or hitter). So depending on how many you get to keep, is who you keep and who you trade or toss. If you don't know how many yet, break down your team into levels, Keppers, Maybes, and Fodder. So, I see ...
Keepers - Martin, Crawford, Chipper
Maybes - Youk, Tejada, Rios, Furcal, Victorino
Fodder - Everyone else
You need pitching. Pitching wins chapionships. If you decide to trade, trade for pitching. Also, unless someone offers you the house for Martin, don't do it. Good Catchers in keeper leagues are like food in somalia, you fight anyone and everyone who wants to pry it out of your hands.
