What a mess! Looking for a good young SP in a keeper league!

Postby powenM » Mon Apr 09, 2007 8:21 pm

I joined this league late in the draft. The previous owner quit and left me with quite a mess(Including 2 good Ut players on a team with 1 util spot.) Thus Ive been trying to move one, as one of my many moves to make something out of this team.

I got this offer today. Do I make the move? I desperately need pitching! If so who do I drop?

He sends: PFielder & CHamels for my THafner.

Theirs no one really interested in Thome or Giambi at this point. And this guys looking for youth too.

If not this deal do u see anything else i could try with him?

so with nobody interested in Thome or Giambi, what are you going to do with Fielder? I like Fielder like getting Friday off from work, but this deal doesn't do it for me. Get yourself a replacement for Reed Johnson in this deal instead and not another logjam.
Mo and Hafner
for
Paps, Hamels, and Dye. Something like that.

Drop Kelly Johnson and Mike Jacobs if this league is >12 teams and pick up useful pitchers.

I would also drop either Pedro or Liriano and use that DL spot for someone who needs it and pick up a player who helps you now. Yes it may sound blasphemous, but there's no way you would keep both those guys.

well heres what i did i made some drops and opened up some spots on the roster.

I cut Pedro(opening DL spot), CQuentin & EDukes(Remember its only 7 keepers). I then put CCarpenter on the DL.

I then added DDejesus, MMorris(temp fix & will rotate him) & TLinceum.

And i traded Hafner for Fielder & Oswalt.


Maybe i can trade Giambi for a vet OF too. Who knows.

I feel bottom line I pick up 2 very good keepers while giving up 1.

With Linceum, Garza & Bailey in the wings I still have a shot this year. Im even thinking of grabbing Andrew Miller(who there is talk could be called up soon.
