    dynasty roster decisions

    I neglected to mention that it's a daily rotisserie league, so I would like a backup at each position. I'm almost certain to drop Erasmo Ramirez, but I'm trying to decide among Jonathan Singleton, Josh Reddick and Brett Anderson for my second drop. I have more confidence in a Ben Revere comeback than the Phillies apparently do (and my team is not strong on steals).

  • After winning my 10-team dynasty league, I plan to go the entire 2014 season with the same roster to see how quickly I drop in the standings. However, I need to drop two players because I had two on the DL when the 2013 ended. The categories are OBP, R, HR, RBI, SB, QS, ERA, WHIP, K and S. What two players do I drop?

    C Wilin Rosario
    C Jason Castro
    1B Anthony Rizzo
    1B Mike Napoli
    1B Jonathan Singleton
    2B Jason Kipnis
    2B Nick Franklin
    SS Jean Segura
    SS Brad Miller
    3B Miguel Cabrera
    3B Jedd Gyorko
    OF Matt Kemp
    OF Shin-Soo Choo
    OF Jason Heyward
    OF Ben Revere
    OF Nick Swisher
    OF Leonys Martin
    OF Josh Reddick
    SP Felix Hernandez
    SP Madison Bumgarner
    SP Mat Latos
    SP Hisashi Iwakuma
    SP Anibal Sanchez
    SP Tim Lincecum
    SP Sonny Gray
    SP Brett Anderson
    SP James Paxton
    SP Erasmo Ramirez
    RP Koji Uehara
    RP Kenley Jansen
    RP Rafael Soriano
    RP Addison Reed

    SP keeper question

    I traded Ryu for Anthony Rizzo and then picked up Sonny Gray to replace Ryu on my pitching staff. I'm trying to decide if Gray represents a long-term downgrade from Ryu.

    In a 10-team mixed dynasty league with a 30-man roster and $300 budget, would you keep Hyun-Jin Ryu at $3 or Sonny Gray at $1? The hypothetical team already has Felix Hernandez at $31, Madison Bumgarner at $13, Mat Latos at $9, Anibal Sanchez at $1, Hiashi Iwakuma at $1 and Tim Lincecum at $8.

    Reason to draft CLOSERS

    I retained Rafael Soriano, Addison Reed and Kenley Jansen at the league minimum salary and then paid $11 for Kyuji Fujikawa at the March auction. I've run away with saves in my 10-team league after picking up free agents Edward Mujica, Koji Uehara and Jose Veras (dropping Veras when he lost his gig). I now have Soriano, Reed and Mujica on my bench because of an innings limit, keeping Jansen and Uehara for their peripheral numbers.

    Drop Derek Jeter??

    After retaining Derek Jeter in my keeper league and stashing him on the DL all season, last week I dropped Jeter because I have Jean Segura, Andrelton Simmons, Brad Miller and Nick Franklin eligible at shortstop.

    Even without Andrelton Simmons, my dynasty team has Jean Segura, Brad Miller and Nick Franklin eligible at shortstop. My team is thin in the outfield with injuries to Matt Kemp and Ben Revere.

  • In a 10-team 5x5 OBP QS dynasty league, are these trades fair (taken in a vacuum devoid of each team's positional needs)?

    SS Andrelton Simmons for OF Josh Reddick

    SP Hyun-Jin Ryu for 1B Anthony Rizzo

    SP Anibal Sanchez for OF Austin Jackson

    My team has a 31-point lead in my 10-team 5x5 OBP dynasty auction league, so I have offered Mike Napoli at $27 and Koji Uehara at $1 for Ryan Braun at $38 to a team in thick of the five-way race for second place. Is the offer too risky? Fair or unfair? I should lose some points in hitting categories, but I have five other closers.

    I would be leery of the .240/.276/.416/.692 line Will Middlebrooks posted in the 35 games after the trade of Kevin Youkilis.
