I'm stuck in a puddle. How do I get out?

Postby AI8818 » Fri Mar 25, 2005 7:51 pm

It's a H2H, 5x5 league...And I can't figure out what the next move of my team should be. I have tons of depth on my bench for hitting and not much SP when you look at it. I dont know, does anyone know. Who am I looking to give and for what? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! ;-D

First off, which O. Perez do you have. If it's oliver, then I think you already have a pretty strong team and may just want to wait and see what happens. I think you could trade pedro + a starting OF for a real ace or top tier RP and hope that one of your bench players steps it up. In fact, I think your more in need of a big time closer than another SP. I'm a life-long rangers fan, and thusly a real believer in Mench. He won't be spectacular, but kind of just plods along. I think .280/30/90 is a real possibility.

Thanks...But the problem is it's Odalis. If it were Oliver, it would be labeled "Ol. Perez" :-?

This looks like a 12 team league.You do need another closer.Keep an eye out for closer replacements.McDougle,M.Gonzalez,R.Wagner and so on.I dont think you can afford to trade for one.You need Berkman to get healthy!!.A 4th place could be in your future. ;-D

Yes, it is a 12 team league...But what kind of trades am I looking for? Who am I looking to trade? Is there anyone?

I like that team a lot. I can see that you need another closer and some speed.

hate to state the obvious but I'm assuming you punted SB?
corey patterson and mike young aren't going to cut it in a 12 team league.

Well would punting SB be the right move? Should I try and trade Patterson for some power and/or RP...Or would it be the better option to trade some power for some speed? (Cause I haven't punted SB's)!

Don't punt. Patterson should make some weeks competitive. You could just use another SB threat. Although Dunn did say that he will swipe 20+ bags this year. ;-7
