Trying to "salvage" my team *WHIR*

Postby Shock Wave » Sat Apr 18, 2009 5:11 pm

I accidently missed this draft so its an autodraft, traditional 12 team Yahoo scoring:

C - Soto
1 - Votto
2 - Kinsler ---> Uggla
3 - Scutaro
SS - Rollins
OF - Victorino
OF - Werth ---> Manny Ramirez
OF - Dukes
Util - Thome
B - Encarnacion
B - Kendrick
B - D. Murphy

SP - Liriano
SP - Billingsley
RP - Papelbon
RP - Nathan
P- Weaver
P - Chamberlain
P - Cueto
B - Pettitte
B - Washburn

Please note I traded Kinsler and Werth for Uggla and Manny which is pending till tomorrow.

Obviously, I dont know how I got both Papelbon and Nathan, I like having a decent closer but anyways thats what happened. Probably gonna start shopping one of them around soon enough but not sure really what to ask for.

Any ideas?

nicely done. having owie kendrick around makes sense for when uggla swoons. i think encarnacion will give you more at 3b, but play it to your best advantage.

the only person i wouldn't want is washburn (he's still playing O:-) ). could probably do without murphy, too. keep an eye on the waivers!

hang on to the closers and try and pad your saves... no point in getting rid of them before they produce (re: have less value) ;-D

Yeah, since Scutaro has been pretty hot I decided to pick him up and plug him in temporarily. This seems like a VERY active league and while I will take another look it seems like the waiver wire has pretty slim pickings at the moment, so I just got Washburn for the time being until I have a better choice but I agree, I might be able to do better.

I havent really decided what im gonna do about my closers, having both Papelbon and Nathan is great I just thought maybe someone might suggest trading one to maybe fill another hole, I might hang onto them though.

Thanks for your help.

I'd try to trade Joba Chamberlain. The Yankees have him on a strict innings limit this year and are going to skip his turn in the rotation here and there. A package of Joba/Nathan or Papelbon might look enticing to some.
