Trade deadline... 8 game slide last week!!! Help WHIR!!

Postby Mr. White Sock » Sat Aug 08, 2009 10:57 pm

One week ago I was sitting pretty in second place just 2.5 games back with momentum. One week later after a pathetic performance by my squad I am 10.5 out in sixth place with Kinsler going to the DL. We are pretty close but I'm still worried about this final push. With the trade deadline quickly approaching I was looking to my fellow cafemates to help me out. Do I need to make any moves?

I see we share a lot of the same "headache" players on my own 12-team H2H squad (Kinsler, ARam, Torii, Cueto). Big thing for you is to hold the fort until you get healthy. If your team is at full-strength in the playoffs, you should be a force.

A couple things jump out about your roster. You have a lot of shortstops. I know they all seem too good to drop, but it does your roster no good if a guy like Furcal never gets played. It would be great if you could trade one for something that improves you anywhere else. Also, you only have 1.5 closers (assuming that's RYAN Franklin, and not some no-name middle reliever I never heard of called Brian). It's tough to compete in saves with that few. Is Frasor available in your league? I would like to see another closer to think you can compete in saves (Gregg's "share" situation hurts you).

I completely agree with agree with Schmidty. Once you are healthy your team is very good. Your struggles of late also could have a lot to do with Pujol's recent slump.

You really could use a closer right now. You might want to try and shop Stephen Drew for a closer. (Qualls, Rodney...)
