    Who to drop for Ellsbury

    I just traded Ellsbury...along with Craig, actually. I also have Napoli, who is atrocious right now...and with his bum knee(?), I'd drop him if I were you. He's not looking like he's picking up anytime soon. Either Nap or Craig, who has been cold, and I'm not sure where the Cardinals are going to be in a month.

    Are you looking to Ellsbury for an average and runs boost? Seems a shame that steals don't count since he'd be good for some.

    Forgot to mention my pitchers (any possibilities to trade in there?): C. Lee (disappointing season), G. Gonzalez, S. Strasburg (will he be shut down?), R. Dickey, C. Capuano, D. Hernandez, J. Valverde, E. Frieri, P. Strop, T. Wilhelmson

  • I recently traded Ellsbury and Craig for Konerko and Kipnis, however, I'm still too heavy on outfielders. My lineup now is:

    C: C. Ruiz
    1B: P. Kornerko
    2B: J. Kipnis
    3B: A. Beltré
    SS: T. Plouffe
    OF: M. Trout
    OF: A. Jones
    OF: R. Braun
    Util: A. Jackson (OF)
    Util: M. Wieters (C)
    BN: J. Hamilton (OF)
    BN: J. Reddick (OF)
    BN: M. Napoli (C/1B)

    Should I be looking to move Napoli or should I hold in case he heats up in the second half (like he did last year)? Should I trade another outfielder? If so, which one?

    Thanks!

  • My team (batting) consists of:
    C: Wieters/Napoli
    1B: Moreland/Smoak
    2B: Infante
    3B: Beltré
    SS: Furcal/Lowrie
    OF: Braun
    OF: Hamilton
    OF: Ad. Jones
    Util: Cuddyer/Hairston/Reddick
    DL: Ellsbury

    The past two weeks have been largely a bust, as the opposing team's bats have heated up and mine have died...I've been pretty aggressive with my Util and RP moves, but haven't touched my main starters. Should I wait it out or propose some trades?

    What are you doing with Ellsbury?

    Hmm. I had Suzuki in the beginning, but unloaded him because he wasn't living up to previous years. (I think he's still a FA in our league.)

    Any trades I've offered have generally been 2-for-1, so I'm wondering if Ellbury will be worth two other players or if I should set my sights on somebody bigger since my sluggers aren't producing.

    Yeah, I've been lucky that I could keep him in the DL slot and have other OF who have picked up the slack.

    Side question would be: do I unload Hamilton upon Ellsbury's return (assuming Jacoby is hitting well)? My pitching is great right now (Strasburg, G. Gonzales, C. Lee, E. Frieri, Valverde...), but my studs have stopped producing. Team batting average is like, .260.

  • I've had Ellsbury the entire season and have just been waiting it out until he gets back since he was injured so early and no one was interested in a DL player (and I didn't want to drop him, knowing he could be valuable again).

    Since he should be back mid-June, should I keep him (my OF already consists of Hamilton, Adam Jones, Braun and others) or use him as trade bait? And if so, what should I expect in return?
