In second place- need a boost start WHIR

Postby Weasel_King » Sun Jun 04, 2006 11:46 am

I'm in a 5x5 mixed league with 12 members. I'm in 2nd place in my league, but by 14 points. Here's my roster, followed by his team's roster.


Active Batters

J Lopez C
J Posada C
P Fielder 1B
B Roberts 2B
T Glaus 3B
M Young SS
B Giles OF
C Crawford OF
C Lee OF
K Mench OF
S Podsednik OF
C Delgado U
N Johnson U

Active Pitchers

B Arroyo SP
F Liriano SP
J Contreras SP
K Millwood SP
K Rogers SP
N Lowry SP
A Otsuka RP
C Cordero RP
E Gagne RP

D Lee 1B
J Verlander SP


Active Batters

Barrett, Michael C
Mauer, Joe C
Howard, Ryan 1B
Weeks, Rickie 2B
Chavez, Eric 3B
Garciaparra, Nomar SS
Abreu, Bobby OF
Drew, J.D. OF
Dunn, Adam OF
Guerrero, Vladimir OF
Ordonez, Magglio OF
Francoeur, Jeff U
Kearns, Austin U

Active Pitchers

Bonderman, Jeremy SP
Escobar, Kelvim SP
Johnson, Randy SP
Lee, Cliff SP
Santana, Johan SP
Schmidt, Jason SP
Ray, Chris RP
Rodriguez, Francisco RP
Isringhausen, Jason RP

Cantu, Jorge L. 2B
Hawpe, Brad RF

The reason I'm benching Verlander is his last poor start against the Yankees, who was blown up despite the fact they didn't have Sheffield or Matsui. I'm not betting a good outing against the White Sox's stacked lineup. Hopefully he can rebound so I can bench/drop Lowry who I'm not fond of, but has a double start for Week 10- against the Marlins and Pirates.

I obviously have a lot of SB- just with my top 2 SB guys- Posednik and Crawford who are leading me by themselves (I have 20 more steal than the SB runner up). I also have Roberts in case I decide to ship out some speed for an upgrade somewhere. The dude in first place doesn't have much speed, I'm going to try to make a deal.

Based on the rosters above, any deals that would benefit me more than him? Any advice or comments would be greatly appreciated!!!

I would try and trade Kenny Rogers for Maggs. I don't think the old timer is going to keep it up this year, but Maggs just might, plus, you could sit B.Giles when he goes cold (which he inevtiabely will). Just a thought. Thanks for your help with mine.

Mags- good
I wouldn't be disappointed with Kerns either... though you can likely get a little more of Rogers before he slides- which I think he does.
Expos... Gone, but not forgotten.

Thanks for the help guys!

I'm currently attempting the trade you guys offered: Maglio for Rogers. If the trade goes through that could really turn out well for me

While I am all for trading for needs, trading the only need your oppenent has to him just sounds like a bad idea to me. Trading away rogers, or arroyo, or both could be good. you would probly want some pitching back though. both guys can't keep up this pace, when arroyo comes around for the second time he will get hammered. I know, watching him as a sox fan. he's good enough for a few wins and a 4.5 ERA, but you can sell him as a much better pitcher right now.

Maggs is hot right now. I don't think Maggs for Rogers will fly.
