Too many good outfielders

Postby santana » Sat May 17, 2003 2:12 pm

On my team, I have at OF:

Bonds
Giles
Wilson
Burrell
Everett
Ichiro

One of them goes at Util, but that still means I bench two great players every day. Is it imperative that I trade away one of these guys? If so, who would be the best one to trade?

If I don't do a trade, is the best approach to rotate the guys around based on pitching matchups? I've tended to always play Bonds, then rotate the other guys based on matchups.

you'd really have to give more info. For example, if you've got plenty of players who can steal but you're weak in hr/rbi, then it would be silly to play ichiro, etc.

If youre doing fine with your lineup and your pitching is solid, dont trade just to trade. Its better to have good players on your bench than on your opponents roster. However, if youre pitching is struggling I would try and trade Wilson or Everett while theyre hot for a stud pitcher. Otherwise, just keep them and continue to play well and enjoy then envy you see in the eyes of the owners

I wouldnt trade the top 3, Bonds,Giles, Wilson, but would try to move one of the others, especially Ichiro, whos way overated.
I would always start Bonds, Giles, Wilson, with Everett at ut.
