You could try to trade Andruw Jones for a closer. If someone is completly unaware of how much he sucks right now then im sure you could get a nice closer.

This just happened...
Gorzellany was dropped. Do i drop someone and pick him up? If so, who?

Also, I offered a trade to someone...Hawpe for Harang...although he prob will counter with Bedard. Good offer?

And I have been trying to move Andruw...absolutely no bites.

I just got his Bedard for my Hawpe...I feel pretty good about that. Andruw finally hit a HR tonight :-° . Should I pick up Gorzellany off the FA list? If so, who do i drop? (see team in first post)

I think you have a slight edge in hitting, although it's pretty close. I would guess that neither of your teams are the best hitting teams in the league. Both of your lineups have many batters who are good, but not the top players at that position. Your best asset is your outfield, even without Jones.

I do think he has better pitching, but the good news is pitching is easier to fix in-season than hitting, especially scarce positions like the infield. Keep an eye on the latest news, who is being called up, being transferred to a more important role, etc.

This might be a little risky, but I'd be tempted to dangle a great pitcher like Webb for a stud hitter in return. It might be the kind of bold move that makes or breaks your team. As it stands now, I think it's possible to win with that lineup, just not very likely unless you make a couple excellent moves.

Sorry, I didn't see page two of the posts. Yes, I would drop Lyon and pick up Gorzellany without hesitation.

I wouldn't have traded Hawpe for Bedard because I generally advocate trading pitching for hitting. That being said, he won't be too difficult to replace since you can pick up any hitter for utility. I hope Bedard comes through for you. Good luck!

I actually am leading in HR, R, RBI, and am 3rd in AVG, and 4th in OBP

Since your league counts holds, I can see holding on to Lyons. Then it's much more tricky in deciding who to drop for Gorzellany. I'm not a huge believer in Germano if you look at his career numbers, including the minors, but he is pitching well so far and having Petco as his home park definitely helps too. The only other possibility I see is Wiggington, since you can probably find a comparable hitter in the FA pool. On the other hand, he is versatile, so that's a tough call too. Gorzellany is a bona fide talent though, so I'm assuming someone will pikc him up if you don't.

I'm surprised that your team ranks that high in some of the hitting categories, especially HR's and RBI's. I look a deeper look at some of your players though and they are surpassing their career norms and hopfully they can keep it up. I do like the fact that most of your hitters are younger players who are on the rise in their careers, so it is possible they will continue hitting in the second half for you.

One other note-Jones is too good a hitter to b stuck around the Mendoza line for long. His value is too low right now to trade him for a comparable player, so I would do exactly what you're doing right now. Just keep him on your bench until he heats up, then he will definitely help you in the power categories. Good luck!

So I guess the consensus is to not pick Gorz up, since I have no one to drop? Any one else want to weigh in? What about Hennessey, could I drop him? I know you're not supposed to drop closers, but he hasnt done much, and San Fran doesnt win a whole lot. Would that be smart in order to get Gorz?

Ya, I am barely leading in HR and RBI. I have a pretty big lead in R though. I'm 9th out of 10 in SB, 3rd in batting K, 4th in W, 9th in L, 6th in SV, 5th in pitching K, 7th in ERA, 8th in WHIP.

I recently got Hart and Willits to help my SB cat, since Crawford hasnt done much. Losing Hawpe in the Bedard trade hurts me a little in batting stats, but def helps my Pitching K, ERA, and WHIP. When Jones picks it up, and Tejada gets healthy, my batting should stay ahead of the pack. When Street comes back, I should pick up some on SV, although Embree has been doing a good job.

Any more help would be appreciated, and dont forget to leave your link...
Thanks
