12 team keeper league, 5x5 roto scoring, keep 7 from year to year with no limitations. I'm currently in 4th, one spot out of the money (by 12 pts.) Trade deadline is looming July 31st. Do I deal Hamilton or will he kick it into gear in the 2nd half. And, if I deal, what (or who) should I try and get in return.
Just deal Billingsley for W. Rodriguez, Jurrjens, Molina and Ianetta to upgrade Salty and Navarro.
Was offered Adam Jones and Sandoval for Braun and Stewart. No way I do that deal. But I could offer Hamilton for Ad. Jones and Sandoval letting Sandoval replace Iannetta. (Doubt he does it though) What other moves should I consider making?
C Molina, Iannetta
OF Braun, Kemp, Hamilton, Granderson, Stewart
P Baker, Bell, Greinke, Jurrjens, C. Lee, Millwood, W. Rodriguez, KRod, Scherzer
Bench: F. Francisco, Kuroda, Ad. LaRoche, Marquis
I'll be placing F. Francisco on the DL and picking up another player (Piniero, Niemann, Cust, G. Anderson, E. Aybar, etc) I'm leaning towards Piniero or Niemann since non of the bats are extraordinary. Then, when I activate Francisco, I'll drop Ad. LaRoche who won't have as much value now that he's in Boston playing part-time.
