Impressive offense, very mediocre pitching. How you have three first round picks in your offense is beyond me, but it's time to trade some to get some pitching. Figgins and shmidt might not be a bad trade for wright because you need good starters desperately. You should look to trying to get maybe a Johan santana and a schmidt or carpenter or schilling. You need two. YOu can also move ivan rodriguez as you dont need two top catchers.
I would also move blalock in a deal if u can because he is hitting his notorious second half slump. He will do nothing but hurt your team the rest of the way.
Between, Pujols, Manny, Lee, Wright, and Beltran, you have some serious offensive players. Lee and Wright look like maybe the two guys to deal, or lee and manny if you deal blalock. Anyone worth noting on the waiver wire?
I would drop Grudz and J. Jones. Not much value on yours or any other team. Anybody good on the WW? You may want to look into shopping Hawpe, too. He is playing really well and may have a lot of value for a team with a weak/mediocre OF. That might be who I shop to get a good closer. And I do agree, you can shop Pudge as well.
WAIT! Blalock is your 3B...get rid of him, move wright to 3B and Hawpe to your util spot. Oh, and by the way, its FERNANDO Rodney, not Franklin.
Offer Carlos Lee, Hank Blaylock and Harden in a package ask for a Curt Schilling, a closer like Chris Ray, and a middle level pitcher who plays on a contender like robertson, e. santana, or if you need wins Wang. I agrree I wouldn't own Doug Davis I am sorry, please tell us your FA list!!!
whos on the ww??? And, look to the back as well !!
lowry, garland, cain (waivers), westbrook, radke, loaiza, moyer, jennings, francis, c. park, buchholz, janssen, lidle, fossum, hensley, fogg, maholm, h. ramirez
i also forgot to mention this is a keeper league, actually a dynasty league we're in the 4th year and ive been in the top 5 the first 3 years...so thats why i was having problems parting ways with wright.
just a quick question, think i should drop either Jacque Jones or Grudzie for either a guy like Edmonds or Bonds, who are both on the FA list...just to stash those guys incase they get hot, use them for trade bait...seens how i don't use my bench players unless my starters have an off day...
some trades i have proposed...
I give Blalock, Pudge, Dave Bush and Lester I get Santana and Burnett (i know a far out trade but would be great to get)
I give Blalock, Pudge, Dave Bush and Lester I get Carpenter and Chris Young
