It's good to finally contribute here. I've certainly lurked here enough in the past two years. lol.
I'm currently tied for first in a standard 5x5 10 team Yahjoo league. Here's the team:
1B - Butler
2B - Phillips
SS - Rollins
3B - Longoria
OF - Crawford, McCutcheon, Bruce
UT - Panda, G Jones
BN - Aviles
SP - Gallardo, Hanson, Price, Liriano, Cueto, Carmona, Wells, Wade Davis
RP - Soria, Valverde, Soriano, Dotel
DL - Webb
Players picked up so far on waivers this year: Suzuki, Bruce, G Jones, Aviles, Dotel, Cueto, Carmona
Our league has a three player Add maximum per week so nothing can be done until Monday. The plan is to pick up Montero and stash him on the DL (two allowed in our league) as a litle insurance for Suzuki and then drop a pitcher to pick up Stanton. I have a feeling he gets called up around the same time Weiters was last year (June 1). Dotel seems the obvious choice, however my main competition to this point has five closers and a cheap save or two for Dotel a week may not be such a bad idea to keep.
I'm also looking to buy the brat Hanley low if I can. My team lacks HR and RBI numbers so far. I figure his ego will either make him conform to play or make life in SoFla so bad that he gets traded to a big money team with a better lineup around him. Anyway, here's what I proposed:
I give: Rollins/Gallardo
I get: Hanley/Niemann
Thanks in advance and WHIR when I can.
