Preparing for 2009/ 10 Keeps

Postby brehh » Wed Sep 10, 2008 10:13 am

12 team Roto. I've made a lot of trades so my team has changed alot. Have no chance this year but preparing for 2009. I can only keep 10, but how am i looking?

C-Brian McCann
1B-Carlos Peña
2B-Robinson Canó
3B-Adrián Béltre
SS-Troy Tulowitzki
CI-Jed Lowrie
MI-
OF-Vernon Wells
OF-Álex Ríos
OF-Bobby Abreu
OF-Milton Bradley
UTIL-Ryan Doumit
UTIL-Nick Swisher
BN-Derrek Lee,Chris Dickerson,Xavier Nady
SP-Liriano,Lester
RP-Jensen Lewis,JJ Putz
P-Soria,King Felix,Bronson Arroyo
BN-Ted Lilly,Sheets,Justin Verlander,Chris Young,Chien Ming Wang

Trade Pending-I give Cano,Tulo,Derrek Lee for Kevin Youkilis,Carlos Lee, Eric Byrnes

Once that trade goes through i could send Carlos Pena,Carlos Lee out for Dustin Pedroia, Matt Kemp
I'm giving up all my MI and there won't be any good ones in redraft.
Trying to trade away some pitching because i can't keep all of them.

Thanks in advance

It looks pretty weak to me. You don't have anyone resembling a 1st rounder. The SP looks OK but the offense needs some real improvement. You need to start trying to pull off some 2 for 1 trades. I think you are getting the short end in both the deals you listed.

What should i try proposing then. Any players in particular to target in trading? I plan to trade out Mccann later.

Also, should i pick up Fowler right now with my #4 waiver spot?

I don't think Fowler is a keeper unless your league has a minor leagues.
I think Carlos Lee and Kemp are solid targets. Maybe try Pena and Sheets for one. It isn't that you have a lack of talent it is just that you have 15 good players and only 10 keepers plus you are lacking in top tier talent. I'd look to see if any teams are short on keepers and see if you can't make a deal.

The youkilis trade went through.Holding off on the Lee/Pena trade. Will try to get Price with the 4th waiver. Probably won't get him.
Recently been offered: Teagarden,Alex Gordon, Daniel Murphy, Justin Duchs for Mccann. That would just give me more players, so no way im doing that.
