What moves do you make to get one of the SP available? (right now I am thinking of dropping Gonzales and then work a trade with some of the offensive power I have), its a 12-Team, H2H, 5X5. Do I just punt Wins and hope my RP's can compete in K's, ERA, Whip, I should take SV's every week.

What moves would you do? Leave a link and I will try my best to help all of you. Thanks!

I don't really like any of the available starters. None of them would be good enough to replace Gonzalez.

You should find owners who are in dire need of closers and offer Gordon/Gonzalez...maybe Izzy, but I doubt you want to do that.

Also throw some of your hitters in a package with Gordon and/or Gonzalez if possible. Someone like Beltran might make some owners take a risk and they might be willing to part with one of their SP's for a player of his calliber. Also maybe Barmes, since you're pretty set with Lugo.

I think your best bet for a package would be Beltran and Gonzalez/Gordon for a quality SP.

Don't punt any cats yet...I like Duke a lot and you still never know if Clemens can give you another great year.

None of those available pitchers really does anything for me except maybe Loaiza. So I think you can pick him up and then try trade for SPs. As a matter of strategy in H2H (assuming daily changes), I like to have 1 or 2 bench hitters and the rest of the bench made up of SP. I like having 5 relievers for the RP & P slots. Ideally your bench hitter (or hitters) have multiple position eligibility. For example last year Feliz was a good bench guy because he was eligible at several positions to tag in on your first string players' days off.

Is Bedard available? He's a guy that could be deep in your FA list that I expect a good year out of . . .

How about shipping Joe Nathan + Franceour for a Harden type guy. I know Nathan is your top closer, but you do have C Cordero, Iggy, Gordon and Gonzalez to back that up.

I was hoping to package one of the OF's, Beltran (i have enough speed with Crawford could put Matsui in at UTL and have decent bench bats) and a lower end closer, for a top 15 SP and maybe a lower end RP. I am not sure if I can get Harden but with Duke and Harden, and god willing Clemens comes back I would think a little less movement would be needed.

thanks for the help thus far.

i would trade jguillen and tgordon for a solid SP...then grab loiaza off the wire for SP depth..you hava nice team .. a 2 for 1 involving the injured jguillen and an aging, risky tgordon would set you up nicely

Solid pitcher like a top 25 type? I dont think that trade would work for Harden, but I will see what happens. I think the only way for me to go now is 2-1.

I agree with above. Available SP are not worth Gonzalez. Your SP you have now are good. I would do a wait a see.

My SP's now are good? I have one, Zack Duke, and possibily Roger Clemens, thats it. I would say with that, I am very poor.

what if I trade j.guillen and t.gordon for Tim Hudson, am I getting enough? I am pretty desperate for SP right now.
