10 x 10 Head to Head, 5 Keepers at end of year, standard categories.
Greetings, I have 5 OF in my lineup right now: Soriano, Hart, Cruz, Guerrero, and Lind. I like Berkman at my DH, so that means I only play 3 OF every week.
I would love to bolster my bullpen. My league is not trade friendly and really puts a lot of value on SP. My plan is to trade one of these five OF.
Which of these OF would you try to move? Vladdy is stinking it up this year, so I probably would be selling him low right now. Lind is on fire, but people don't know him. They probably won't believe he's legit. Not sure I could move him at all. Soriano, Hart, and Cruz are crushing right now.

i'd trade hart for a top pitcher. it looks like your league uses more SP. if that's true, then i'd trade for a quality starter. if you have several RP spots too, then i'd try to get a good reliever, plus another guy for hart. you should be able to get more than just one reliever for him.
you dont really have alot of SB so i dont think you should trade Hart. Guerrero may be off to a slow start but you could/should still be able to get the most back for him. you only have Fuentes as a closer so you could use more there. i dont think those who have top tier closers are going to trade them unless they have numerous other closers and Guerrero is more valuable than the middle tier closers. maybe you could try some package where you send out Guerrero and Greene for a closer and someone better at SS? just an idea.
I'd try to move Cruz first for a mid level closer. he is doing well and you can get a lot for him right now. It might be his peak value for the year as I don't expect spectacular numbers from him but I do see him doing very well. If you cant move him, I would try to move Vlad for an upgrade in pitching. Vlad is still Vlad and will net you good return.
