I had Dye and I traded him for Bay which I think is a good deal for me. Got Roberts off FA to add to my speed with Reyes and Hanley. I have been putting Hanley out there for people, but really being careful to not sell him too early....as I think his value will increase with time. Any help is appreciated.
I was going to work out A-Rod for Reyes but due to A-Rods fast start, the guy said he is no longer interested. I really would love to get a good 3B for Hanley, but I am having a hard time getting proper value so far.
Glaus is on the fifteen day DL as far as I know, but I def. expect this guy to miss some time this year which is fine. Chavez is doing better than I thought he would filling in, so I'm a happy boy.
What do you guys think my team weaknesses are? I think pitching is a problem, especially with Webb\Zombrano doing awful so far this year. I am trying to get Beckett but his asking price is outrageously high, the guy is a moron. Any tips appreciated.
Yeah, I suppose that is the plan for now because I can't get jack for value off Hanley right now anyhow. I jokingly offered up Hanley Ramirez to another manager for his Manny Ramirez, and he laughed...this was when Manny was well above 600...he didn't want to trade him for a top eight player. So sometimes, you are dealing with people who like big namers, power hitters, HR, RBIs, and only when they realize their team lacks a few categories will they make a move.
I think Hanley should yield an ace later in the season. Either that or I can go for the 2-1 with him if he stays top ten. Get two top sixty players who aren't injury prone...make my team deeper.
