10 team H2H 6x6 keeping 8 adding OPS and losses with daily changes and 2 UT spots.
SS: Hanley Ramirez
OF: Bay, Quentin
Someone must be left behind
Already eliminated Liriano/Joba/Harden/Sheets/Fuentes/BJRyan/Rivera and Bobby Abreu
Was thinking about packaging a 2B, but with Utley out til June, I think Kinsler stays. Utley will be a nice midseason UTIL upgrade; or Kinsler gets me a stud SP this summer.
With Bay returning to 100-30-100-10 status, and moving to Boston, it would be tough to let him go, even if OFs are easier to replace.
Would Papelbon and Fielder for Pujols be good? I worry about Pujols' health.
Papelbon and Fielder for Pujols would be a good deal for you.
That said, assuming you have a low min. IP (I think Yahoo default is 7/wk), I'd probably drop Bay. Pretty tough call, but I think Papelbon's pretty valuable in this format. For SP's, W's and L's effectively cancel each other out, leaving ERA, WHIP, K, and SV. Papelbon will project to a better ERA, WHIP, L, and SV than any SP (albeit a worse K and W). Throw Papelbon, another top-tier RP, a middle-tier RP, and Halladay each week, and you'll almost always win ERA, WHIP, L's, and SVs. I'd probably try to draft/acquire one more stud SP, but otherwise would spend almost the entire draft on hitting. That would offset the loss of Bay, I think.
