ace pitcher opening day arms....pitching ahead of hitting at this point....and hitters probably have more butterflies than usual on opening day? :) either way, yeah, it would be nice to see some scoring....as long as it is not off my fantasy pitchers!

When does Yahoo! put players on the DL?
The better question may be, when do the major league teams submit who will be on the DL to start the season? Do they do this when they submit their 25 man rosters at the end of spring training? I guess it may be after this, that Yahoo! will change people to "DL" where necessary.
I have Chris Carpenter in my keeper league and would like to put him on the DL obviously to free up a roster spot and he will be on the DL to start the year of course.

I am in a keeper league, should I deal Joe Nathan for Jhoulys Chacin? K/BB ratio is a category so Chacin concerns me with his walks but love his upside....
Nathan is 37-38 and may lose closer role with one more bad outing...
Also, I already have Kimbrel, Putz, Hanrahan and Guerra as closers too so not hurting there....I am however hurting most at SP.
What should I do?

I was thinking maybe waiting after this weekend with Weaver and Haren pitching out in LA against them while Pena is at home against 2 bad Twins pitchers.

In my outfield I have Carlos Lee, Alfonso Soriano, Matt Kemp and Shin-Soo Choo. I also have Ryan Zimmerman as my 3B as well as Mark Reynolds, who I have been using in my Utility spot.
Meanwhile, I have Magglio as well riding my bench.
Its hard to drop him, but I havent really used him and with the above people, I dont see me doing so in the future much.
In free agent market there is Scott Baker and Gavin Floyd on waivers waiting to come off. I want to grab Baker and drop Magglio, but not sure. What do you think?

I am in a keeper league.
In my outfield, I currently have Carlos Lee, Alfonso Soriano, Matt Kemp, Magglio Ordonez and Shin-Soo Choo.
My starting pitching is really great with Roy Halladay, Justin Verlander, Jered Weaver, Adam Wainwright, Rick Porcello, Javier Vazquez, Derek Lowe, Matt Cain, Dave Bush.
I am killing my league so far in ERA, WHIP, etc. with my starting staff. However, I am losing my grip on offense, particularly homers where Kemp and Ordonez really has shown no power.
I got the following offer:
Matt Holliday FOR Matt Cain
It kind of depends where Holliday ends up but I feel my OF may be just as good with him or without him.
If I did this, I would drop Choo and pick up a Gavin Floyd or someone like that who is on free agent to replace Cain.
I am leaning towards NOT doing this as I think my OF is good enough and Cain could be a #1 arm soon, if not already.
What do you think?

What I meant when I said the White Sox feel a breakout was coming....is that if they waited and then he broke out, it would have cost them more then to keep him and they probably think it is coming so they probably think they made a good investment locked him up now.

I am in a keeper league and K/BB ratio is a category in our league.....there is a reason that I am mentioning this.
I got offered Jake Peavy and Johan Santana FOR Carlos Beltran, Erik Bedard and Ubaldo Jimenez
I was planning if I did this to pick up a young OF that I really like into which this deal would give me this room (keeper league).
I know its all about health....the only real healthy guy out of this is Jimenez. He may K lots of guys but worried about his high WHIP and issues last year and a half and now in the AL. Even when good his K/BB is not good while my 2 guys Id be getting would be good with that. Again, just a matter of health with them. So far, reports are good this spring on them.
Im learning towards doing this obviously, but thought I could get some advice here on what you would do.

First the background of my league:
It is a keeper league.
My OF currently consists of Alfonso Soriano, Vernon Wells, Jermaine Dye, Michael Bourn and Rick Ankiel.
I am stacked in the INF with Victor Martinez, Ryan Howard, Chone Figgins, Jimmy Rollins, Carlos Gullien, Carlos Delgado, Orlando Cabrera and Aramis Ramirez.
My rotation sits with Javier Vazquez, Matt Cain, Feliz Hernandez, John Maine, Pedro Martinez, Francisco Liriano, Chris Carpenter and Greg Maddux
In our league there is no limit on innings pitched so you can add and drop players as you wish.
I have currently been offered this trade:
I thought about doing this in a heartbeat, but is Delmon Young really better than the OF I currently have? Is Halladays best years behind him? How healthy is Escobar? Can Felix Hernandez finally break through to the elite?

I would trade Aramis Ramirez and Michael Cuddyer FOR Alex Rodriguez and Javy Guerra
I need saves....my plan would be to pick up Ryan Roberts to replace Michael Cuddyer if I did this for flexibility he has and backup at 2B.....my OF would be Duda, Morse and AJackson with Uggla as my 2B already.
What do you think?
