alright guys i just made trade #3......i'm a little disappointed in it....i set out to get a closer (because i'm worried about the ATL closing situation) and i think i got a little narrowminded. i think i could have gotten a little more, but now i need to feel the empty roster spot.

these are the possiblities i'm considering...and would like ya'lls input:
1)nick swisher - with my league counting OBP, if i picked him up i would try to trade francoeur or pence for a SP
2)j.broxton - pick him up and vulture some SVs and Ws and lower my ERA/WHIP and add a few Ks
3) j.danks - get some SP help
4) mark henderickson (SP)
5) jo-jo reyes (SP)
6) one of: felipe lopez, dustin pedoria, p.polanco, k.johnson, j.kent.......platoon my 2B with the best possible matchup
7) jeremy bonderman (SP)
8) wandy rodriguez (SP)
9) scott baker (SP)
10) nate robertson (SP)
11) Dana Eveland (SP)
12) Shawn Chacon (SP)
13) Joe Blanton


i could actually pickup 2 of them, by dropping M.Acosta....thoughts? (if i get a pitcher i would like to replace the Ks Volquez was giving me)

I love your team, but I really didn't care for trade #3. I think you could've gotten a better closer for Volquez alone. I know each league is differnet, but he is REALLY highly valued right now in our keeper. I understand things might be different in your redraft.

I feel pretty confident that Soriano should jump back in and be a solid closer for the rest of the year. So the combination of KRod, Rivera, Soria, Soriano should be plenty to finish top 3 in SVs.

dropped polanco for N.Swisher
-everyone in my league seems very comfortable in the their 2b (and there are alot of comparable 2b on the WW)
-hoping swisher starts taking advantage of the us cellular and returns to 2006 form
-another influence was trade value - i think if they start playing up to potential i can get more for francoeur or swisher than i could for polanco

dropped R.Soriano to make way for furcal on the DL...picked up S.Drew

this trade was proposed to me...i decided not to pull the trigger...i didn't feel my pitching staff could take the loss of zambrono
i give: weeks + zambrono
i get: b.phillips + j.cueto
did i make the right decision?
i sold this same guy cueto after his 1st start..,

Yeah, I would say you did the right thing and not accpet that trade. You have jeff Kent and some other decent 2b still avalible who can fill that spot good.

besides that your team looks good. Except I dont know what you were thinking on the 3rd trade :-b

well lets see...since i posted last time i've made a few moves
1) dropped konerko for thome.....i'm in last place in HR and 2nd to last in RBI...figured thome would give me a better shot
2) dropped Francoeur for Swisher....for versatility (both the same player in my opinion)
3) dropped polanco for B.Myers....going to give him a chance to see if he can turn it around

here's a trade i'm close to pulling the trigger on....scared about my pitching after
i give: abreu + zambrono
i get: dunn + brandon phillips

i counter trying to get cueto, in addition....he rejected then dunn went off for 5 straight days...but i think once dunn cools of for a few days or a week he'll reconsider
