I get: Lance Berkman and Brian Roberts I give up: Adrian Gonzalez, Chad Billingsley, and Akinori Iwamura
I am currently in first, dominating in pitching, and middle of the road in hitting. I still have Maholm, Baker (hopefully turns it around), and Richmond/random waiver fliers for my 5th SP spot.
Here's my roster
C A.J. Pierzynski (CWS - C) 1B Adrián González (SD - 1B) 2B Akinori Iwamura (TB - 2B) 3B Hank Blalock (Tex - 1B,3B) SS Ryan Theriot (ChC - SS) OF Grady Sizemore (Cle - OF) OF Carlos Lee (Hou - OF) OF Ryan Ludwick (StL - OF) Util Johnny Damon (NYY - OF) Util Adam Lind (Tor - OF) SP Johan Santana (NYM - SP) SP Chad Billingsley (LAD - SP) SP Zack Greinke (KC - SP) SP Wandy Rodríguez (Hou - SP) SP Aaron Harang (Cin - SP) RP Mariano Rivera (NYY - RP) RP Matt Thornton (CWS - RP) RP Ryan Franklin (StL - RP) BN Chipper Jones (Atl - 3B) BN Elvis Andrus (Tex - SS) BN Marlon Byrd (Tex - OF) DL Ryan Doumit (Pit - C) DL DL Melvin Mora (Bal - 3B) DL Alex Gordon (KC - 3B) DL BN Paul Maholm (Pit - SP) BN José Valverde (Hou - RP) DL BN Scott Baker (Min - SP)
some of these guys miss the point: agonz already has 8 bombs. berkman hasn't done jack. unless you think berkman will end the season with only 285-25-90, then he will very likely perform as good as if not better than Agonz FROM HERE ON OUT. I guess you're assuming the other guy values Agonz more than Berkman at this point (funny how 3 weeks in a season can completely change draft perspective) otherwise that wouldn't even net you anything.
Still, i understand your reluctance to trade either Agonz or Bills.
You def need to upgrade you 2b and roberts is a nice target. Iwamura sucks ass. You can try Chipper striaght up or even sell high on wandy and try Wandy and Chipper for Roberts alone.
Personally, I'd take Berkman over Agonz from hear on out for the rest of the saeason. Berkman has a track record like few others and will mash for a prolonged period when he gets hot.
