Obviously I was using guys like Braun, Figgins, and Doumit at their other positions, but I still had a bench stocked with the likes of Hamilton, Butler, Pence, Votto, etc, with no room to put them in (because of Holliday/Crawford/Hart ahead of them), and no real prospects of trading them away for elite talent at other positions.
I have had the same problem. My pre-draft strategy was to wait for OFers because it is so deep this year, but it is ridiculous. I drafted Carlos Lee in the 2nd round because he fell farther than I expected him to fall. I had him going a little earlier in my rankings so I snatched him up thinking I got great value.
Since then, I have been shopping him around all season. I cannot give him away. I have been trying to upgrade to a IFer or SP by trading him away all season.
My plan is to have solid IFers and have value picks in Hamilton, Votto, Justin Upton fill out my OF. Now I have a log jam in my OF because of my elite OF's trade value has deflated.
Damn you OF inflation.
No one needs help in the OF. Sorry Im just venting.
