  • I am in a 12 team H2H, Keep 2 league. We have 2 DL slots. Here is my current roster.
    C - LuCroy, Gattis
    1B - Trumbo
    2B - Cano
    3B - Nunez
    SS - Correa
    OF - Melvin Upton, A Jones, Bryant, Ozuna, JD Martinez (DL), Brantley (DL)
    SP - Hamels, Maeda, Pomeranz, Giolito, Archer, Shoemaker
    RP - Clippard, Oh, Uehara, Dyson, Madsen, Jeffrees

    As you can see, my pitching is not a strong suit. I carry that many relievers to help me hit my innings so I don't have to throw as many SP's, cause they frankly stink. I was offered the two trades below.
    I get Rizzo, Bradley, Duvall, Rich Hill
    I give Bryant, Hamels
    This doesn't solve my pitching needs at all. I am strongly leaning against this trade. I like having Bryant and Correa as keepers. Here is the second offer (from a different team)
    I get Story, Puig, Darvish, Greinke
    I give Trumbo, Upton, Ozuna, Pomeranz
    This somewhat solves my pitching need, but if I deal Trumbo, I no longer have a first baseman. I could try and Story and a reliever (or two) for a solid 1B. The only viable option on the WW is Solarte.

    What are your thoughts?

  • I am currently 4th in a 12 Team H2H Keep 1 League. I have been struggling all season with my pitching staff. I have been trying to land a stud starter, but have failed. Here is my current roster:
    C - Lucroy
    1B - Trumbo, Forsythe (DL)
    2B - Cano
    SS - Correa
    3B - Nunez
    OF - Bryant, A Jones, JD Martinez
    UTIL - Ozuna
    BN - Gattis, D Peralta, Brantley (DL)
    SP - Hamels, Archer, Stroman, Maeda, Pomeranz, Taillon
    RP - Jeffrees, Madson, Dyson, Street, Rodney
    The reason for all of the closers is that I use them to get my innings without having to throw my struggling started out there. I was going to propose this trade
    I get Bumgarner, Heyward, W Myers
    For Trumbo, JD Martinez, Jeffrees, Madson, Archer
    I hate to deal Trumbo, but i think my offense will still be OK, plus I don't think I can win with this staff. There isn't very much available on the WW. What are your thoughts?

  • I am currently in 4th place of a 12 Team H2H Keeper League. Here is my current roster -
    C - LuCroy
    1B - Trumbo
    2B - Cano
    3B - Nunez
    SS - Correa
    OF - Bryant, A Jones, JD Martinez
    UT - Ozuna
    BN - Valencia, Gattis, D Peralta, Forsythe (DL), Brantley (DL)
    SP - Archer, Hamels, Maeda, Smyly, Stroman
    RP - Jeffrees, Rodney, Street, Madsen, Dyson

    My pitching has been horrible the last two weeks. I have tried to package Jones/Martinez/Trumbo/Ozuna for some staring pitching, but haven't been successful. Pomeraenz is available on waivers, but who do I drop to get him? I am thinking my options are Nunez, Valencia, or Gattis. What are your thoughts?
