This is a H2H 10 team standard 5x5 scoring league, not a keeper league. I've been middle of the road so far, but I just made moves to acquire J. Upton, Carpenter, and Kinsler so I think I'm aggresively moving in the right direction. Since I was able to steal Kinsler for nothing (Kinsler and Nolasco for Gutierrez Furcal and Slowey) I am considering dealing away Utley.
I was offered: Ubaldo, Rollins, Lidge, Wigginton for Utley and Soria I would drop Francis
I'm thinking I should pull the trigger here because I can use the help from Ubaldo (my era and whip would be last in roto) and even though I like Aviles, Rollins is a big upgrade.
Here is my team once the Kinsler deal goes through: C- V-Mart 1B- Miggy Cabrera 2B- Utley 3B- Youkilis SS- Aviles OF- Upton, Upton, Hamilton UTIL- Kinsler Bench- Pierre 1 empty slot
SP- Greinke, Carpenter, Burnett, Nolasco, Peavy, Latos, J. Francis RP- Soria, Bailey, Aardsma, Corpas DL- Beckett, Webb
Should I pull the trigger or use Utley for another piece? I would try to trade Wigginton and someone else after I get him, but for who? and will my closers be good enough after Corpas loses his job? Last thing is Brian Roberts is a Free Agent, should I add him and drop Webb from my DL slot? WHIR Thanks

I like that trade for you. Ubaldo is top 5 SP, and you will still have 4 closers after trading soria. Also you have Kinsler to fill in at second. I would probably drop wiggington or aviles, depending on what categories you need. AVG id keep aviles, hrs id keep wiggington.
I would have Wigginton, Aviles, Upton, Hamilton, Pierre, Peavy, Latos available. Who should I get back? I think the addition of Roberts could net me solid trade value eventually too. My team just got a lot faster with Kinsler and Rollins so it seems speed would be expendable.
I don't like Lidge, until he somehow proves himself otherwise. Rollins needs to prove healthy, but landing Ubaldo would be huge for you either way. You could turn around and throw Wiggington into a trade, sell him high. You can try to package him with Francis or even Peavy, land another closer to replace Corpas.
Thanks for the help on mine.
