I need a 1B very bad, I am in a 10 team 3 player keeper league. I am hoping to net a top 10 1b like Tex or Miggy.
My team looks like this -
Arencibia, LaPorta, Jeter, Espinosa, Longoria, P. Alvarez, A. Escobar, M. Reynolds, Kemp, Pence, C. Young, Zobrist, J. Sands, B. Gardner, R. Zimmerman
Nolasco, Felix Hernandez, Kershaw, Morrow, Garza, Lowe, Pineda, Masterson, Soria, H. Bell

I am trying to trade away Zimm and/or Felix + others while keeping Longoria and Kemp. If I could get away with dumping gardner or reynolds thatd be grade.

What do you think is a fair trade? I am regularly winning pitching cats but need help in OBP SLUG RBI. MIGGY TEX PUJOLS?

I would probably go after Tex to be honest. The guy has started out hot and generally performs well post May. And of the 3 1B you listed, he would have the lowest value IMO.

But it really depends which other teams are lacking a good 3B or SP. I would be very tempted to make on offer for A Gonzalez. His value is low right now. In comparison to the other top 1B.

Adrian would be a good pickup if you can do it. After having shoulder surgery, plenty of people thought it might take sometime for his power to come back. If you can buy now, it should only get better. I would keep Felix and do an offer of Zimmerman and Gardner and maybe someone else but Zimm for AGone straight up is a pretty decent trade in its own right. So don't over pay.
