Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I used Herrera off and on this year, along with Cabrera so I had plenty of GP at SS... The Correa owner wants too much for him. No reason to overpay for the #1 SS when I have a top 3 SS already. Bogaerts and Machado are owned by the same guy. And with each having 3B,SS and there being an IF slot, he's not coming off of either. That pretty much leaves me spot starting guys as I need them behind Tulo.
That is too bad...you can always jettison some OF or SP for SS.
OF and SP are the two deepest positions and you can always find valuable replacements in a 10 team league.
I had Yunel Escobar on my roster for a while, but had to drop him to clear space for Pence to come off the DL... And yes, I do agree. SS is the one position I should have a backup. However, their are only 4 SSs that I have any interest in long term (Correa, Machado, Bogaerts) and none of them come at a price that I'm willing to pay.
I would sell Tulowitzki, Upton, Rendon, Calhoun, and Revere.
You need some serious help at SS. There is no reason not to be two deep at SS in a 10 team league.
that's exactly what I did DS - I chose Tillman vs the Yankees as my most favourable matchup (amongst the available FA pitchers) which is a bit of a dicey matchup so I thought I would decide later whether to leave him on my bench or put him into the SP slot. I obviously missed the deadline and he pitched a decent game which would have won me the league. And all 6 of my relief pitchers didn't pitch an inning between them.
10 team, H-H Dynasty (5 years complete)
30 man MLB rosters, 6 man MiLB rosters
The last 4 seasons I've finished 2nd, 1st, 2nd, and 2nd this year
I cruised to 1st place during the regular season, but stuggled with the bats big time in the playoffs... . I finished in the top 2 in every Cat but HR, RBI, and BA. The roster I have now isn't necessarily the roster I've had all season, so that's part of it. But I feel I have plenty of power. Should I look to move for power? I traded Harper for Price/Rendon this preseason, so that hurt.
Most teams have 3-5 prospects. I have none so I'll be loading up on them this draft. Targeting best available.
Any other thoughts?

I have other guys, but these are the only guys I would even consider, pick 5 please:)
That's a pretty lousy job of roster management for H2H. You have little or no hitting talent and you have way too many SP. You should have traded some of your SP for bats.
