Looking for some general comments about my team. I've got Ethier and Granderson (who I've already activated) coming back, and currently not enough room to start them and the guys I've already got. I don't really want to bench anyone right now except the C that I don't play.
What trades should I pursue? Package Rios and Granderson for an ace pitcher so I can drop Marcum, Wilson, or Leake? Send Young off for a better 3rd closer? Can I trust Ortiz to produce from here on out? Any and all advice is welcome.
Standard Yahoo league, 5x5 h2h. Play two SP spots, 2 RP spots and 4 general pitcher spots.
C- Soto 1B- Gonzalez 2B- Utley SS- Bartlett 3B- Zimmerman OF - Crawford OF- Rios OF- Dunn (also 1b-elig) Util- M. Young Util- D. Ortiz BN- Granderson DL- Ethier
I just dropped Hoffman and picked up Scherzer, who's dealing in AAA. If Ethier comes back real soon, I guess I'll drop Ohman, although he seems to be the new closer in Baltimore.
Still, though, with only 3 OF spots and 2 Util spots, I'm going to have to bench at least two of these players every day: Young, Dunn, Rios, Ortiz, Granderson. Part of me wants to deal some of that quantity for quality, but who to trade away?
