I have made two solid trades in the last month, I feel like my squad is ready, for the second half, Thoughts? Its a 14 team League, Deep Roster, Fantasy Points, Auction League. and yes its a Keeper. Players have 3 year contracts, then become free agents. for example, I have the following players that will be free agents @ seasons end (Phillips/Reyes/Tulowitzki/Lee/Rios/Granderson)

STARTING WEEKLY ROSTER: (Salary) (Contract Year)
C - J.Posada $26 (1)
C - C.Iannetta $1 (1)
1B - J.Giambi $12 (1)
1B - J.Votto $3 (2)
2B - K.Johnson $1 (2)
2B - B.Phillips $5 (3)

BENCH:
3B - Andy LaRoche $3 (1)

SP - J.Johnson $1 (1)
RP - B.Morrow $2 (1)
- empty roster slot -

DL:
RP - M.Capps $1 (1)
SS - T.Tulowitzki $3 (3)

MINORS:

- empty slot -

What should I be targeting? I was thinking about a 3B, to put in, for Davis, when he gets sent to the minors, :-t due to Blalock's return. Stupid move by the Rangers if you ask me......

Any info greatly appreciated, PLEASE

Leave a Link, will help in return.

well you starting pitching looks pretty good I would sugest if you wanted a third baseman the longterm cliff lee for reynolds may work or the short term maybe a mike lowell.

looks like you could use some saves since you only have MO, and Gonzalez once Putz comes back in August. Never played auction league so not sure on the stats counted and how they work but you have a soild offense and starters thats for sure. And why is Posada costing 26?

Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

nice well rounded team especially considering how big the league is.
I really like the fact of your pitching staff will for the most part get u not only lots of Ws but also IPs & Ks. This bodes well in your point system.

Thus not only would i look to get another 3B & send CD to the farm but also Id try to get atleast one more of those SP types I mentioned. U have lots of depth in the bullpen so im sure there r lots of teams that could use help there.

$26 of FAAB left for the season, but you have to remember this is a deep league, with deep rosters, not much out there on the wire to begin with.

After our trade deadline in August, we have a minimum bid of $3 per player thru waiver wire, and its obviously a blind auction done weekly.

Can you still make trades after the deadline or no?

Also, how do your FA's work. Does everyone put in offers on them?
