The guy I'm playing right now has Konerko starting at 1B and Teahan starting at CI, neither is someone i'd want, but he already shot down my DLee for Carlos Quentin trade, even with Quentin on the DL. his team is looking like this right now, since he has Aramis Ramirez and Quentin on the DL/bench: Fukudome, Vernon Wells, Hideki Matsui, Ellsbury and Cuddyer.
Another guy has Hank Blalock at the CI slot (who I wouldn't personally want...) but his outfielders are Hart, Pence, Bruce, Rios, Vlad and Nyjer Morgan.
Another guy, who actually has a glut of starters, has Chris Davis at his CI spot. I know Davis has the power, but he's hitting what, .020? He's got Damon, Crawford, Cameron, Ben Francisco and Magglio on his roster as OF and Util, and he's about to get Bartlett back from the DL. He does, however, have Lincecom, Price, Wainright, Hamels, Peavy, Washburn, Kawakami, Zimmermann and Brandon Webb on the DL. Maybe I could try and pry a starter from this guy who I could flip for an OF?
Then there is the guy in our league (12 teams, $100 a team) who is so horribly bad at fantasy baseball it's laughable. He is in last place by 4 miles, and he has Adam Laroche, Andy Laroche, and Bonifacio starting at 1,3 and CI. He's got Cust, Markakis, BJ Upton and Carlos Lee as OF, and Milton Bradley on the Bench. I tried getting Upton for Lowell already and got denied.
That was long rambling garbage, and I dont know if it helps but... what OFers on your rosters would you trade for Lee, Lowell or Nick Johnson?
