Scoring - with the possible addition of OBP/total bases for hitters and quality starts for SP and holds for RP.

Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Walks (BB), Strikeouts (K), Batting Average (AVG)
Pitchers Stat Categories: Wins (W), Losses (L), Complete Games (CG), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP)

We keep 17 plus a farm system, have 14 locked in right now just need some help with the other 3.

Keepers so far:
Carlos Gonzalez(COL), Hanley Ramirez, Victor Martinez, Alex Rodriguez, Chase Utley, Jose Bautista, Casey McGehee, Clay Bucholz, Zack Grienke, Shaun Marcum, Ricky Romero, Joe Nathan, Aroldis Chapman, David Aardsma, Grady Sizemore,

need 2 out of these guys: Carlos Pena, Brandon League, Jeremy Guthrie, Carlos Lee, Angel Pagan, Ryan Rayburn, Mike Aviles, Dexter Fowler, Garrett Jones, Luke French, Ross Detwiler

or should I replace any of those listed as keepers with someone else?

Thanks for any info.....whir

Thanks for the help one mine.

I would go with Guthrie, G Jones, and take a chance on a bounce back year from Carlos Lee.

You're pretty deep here, which would lead me to maybe go off the board a little bit.

I'd take Pena and Pagan for sure. I like Pena for a decent bounceback this year going to the NL, and with Pagan, I think someone is always going to want speed, so he's a decent trade chip if nothing else.

My third choice...I suppose I'd go with Guthrie but I'm not overly swayed by anyone.

Pagan and Fowler definitely as they have the most value, even if you don't need them. The third is a tossup, but I'd lean towards League or Pena. Pena should bounce back somewhat, but you still pretty much know what to expect. The only reason I mention League is none of the other guys stick out and at some point he could work his way into a closer gig. He has strong skills and could thrive in the late innings.

Thanks for your input on my dynasty trade issue.

Thanks for your help with mine...

I'd go with Guthrie and Pena for sure and then choose who you like between Pagan, who has lower upside, but is more safe, and Fowler, who is less safe, but has bigger upside. I'd go with Pagan... You have some somewhat risky propositions already on your team.
Thank you to soty for hooking me up with another awesome sig!

Thanks for helping me with mine.

I'd take Guthrie, a bounceback year from Lee and Bradon League as I think he'll be the closer before the All-Star break.

thanks for the info guys....been running around like a chicken with my head cut off the last 3 days.

I might be working a deal in which I get Grady Sizemore, who I think will have a nice bounceback season, if so would the trio of Sizemore, Pena and Guthrie look good?

Pena, Pagan and Lee. I also like Jones for whatever that's worth.
