I think Lowrie will be good, but it does appear you have some good 2B and SS coverage. I might consider selling high on Hafner and seeing if you can package him with Liriano for Marcum and Romero. Otherwise, maybe just Hafner for Romero. You look to have good offensive pieces and some on your bench too, so it might be a good grab to get the arm.

can u help me here if u haven't seen this one yet?

I tell ya, I'm thinking Lowrie is for real. Every year a few guys emerge to become legitimate fantasy players, and while I don't know that he will be one of those this year, the signs are pretty darn good so far. I'm holding on to him.

Please help here. Should I give Ichiro and Marmol to get Granderson and Valverde?

Your the second person that has said trade for Romero. I must be missing something because I don't know too much about him. Whats the inside scoop on Romero?

Also, just because of the way my league is setup, I would have to add a pitcher to the trade to have room for him. I can only have 6 SP and 3 RP. No bench for pitchers. It kind of sucks but I didnt set my league up.

I'm biased because I'm a Jays fan but this guy is just a warrior on the mound and has great stuff. I'd also push HARD to acquire Brandon Morrow, honestly, he's amazing....

Id sell him, but not for morrow or romero, your pitching is fine and without a pitching bench, it doesnt help you much. Id get zobrist in that lineup , and then use some pieces to try and get a power bat from someone. You really need another hr guy if stanton doesnt start producing
