I'm Afraid I"ve Hit A DEAD END!!!

Postby My_Religon » Wed Jul 01, 2009 12:50 pm

Hey, my team is stuck in third and can't catch up! I'm leading the whole league in batting, I just need help in pitching and stolen bases. I need more K's and preferrably a lower earned run average. There's no one good left in free agency so it's clear I need to make a trade.

Here's my roster.

C: Brandon Inge
1B: Pablo Sandoval
2B: Ian Kinsler
3B: Russell Branyan
2B/SS: Freddy Sanchez
1B/3B: Carlos Pena
OF: Nick Markakis
OF: Adam Dunn
OF: Adam Lind
OF: Shin Soo-Choo
OF: Jason Kubel

Bench: Manny Ramirez
Bench: Marco Scutaro
Bench: Casey Blake

SP: Zack Greinke
SP: Zach Duke
SP: Jason Marquis
SP/RP/: Andrew Bailey
SP/RP/: J.P. Howell

RP: Joakim Soria
RP: Jonathan Broxton
RP: George Sherrill
RP: Huston Street

DL: Jake Peavy

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Inge is great trade bait -- you could move him for an SP, move Sandoval to C and Blake to 1B without losing an awful lot of production. And if you need SBs, I'd think about playing Scutaro at SS vs. Sanchez.

Move an OFer and Branyan for an upgrade at 3B. Figgins might be a good target. Another thing you could do is move an OFer and one of the RPers (Bailey or Howell? Something like that) to someone who needs them but could spare a SPer.

Doing 2-for-1's is by far the best way to upgrade at a position. You have Manny coming off suspension so moving an OFer doesn't hurt your squad in the least.

Good luck!
