What can I do to stay in first place?

Postby jhansen73 » Tue Jun 07, 2005 1:19 pm

With Barmes going down, it left the SS position thin for me. We start 2 at every IF pos, 5 OF, 1 DH, 6 SP, 3 RP.

33 person roster with room for one DL spot. 15 person keeper league

Points league
Anything I could/should do? Is Barmes worth a keeper spot?

I definately think he's a keeper. This isn't a performance based injury as well, the effect on his game should be neglible. But if you would like the up to now top ss in the NL servicing your team next season, i wouldn't dump him. I'd move one of your of's or SP's and see if Nefi is still avail or lugo (prob not in your league).

Actually, I picked up Nefi when Nomah got hurt, but then I procedded to trade him to my wife along with Borowski and Rios for Carlos Lee

Now she wants him back.

Do I make the trade or go elsewhere?

Absolutely not, that's a fantastic trade for you. It freed you to pick up some guys plus get a guy turning a stud season. Is B Crosby still available? David Eckstein? These guys are all very worthy pick ups. Unless you can package another 2/3 player for one deal i wouldn't trade away a stud like lee.

I think you meant thin at 2B. Go and get Ryan Freel RIGHT NOW.
