Make a change or sit tight? WHIR

Postby CubsFan4Life23 » Mon May 02, 2011 4:12 pm

Horrible news about Ryan Zimmerman, making me a bit nervous as I am in the middle of the pack in my league. I know it's still early, but should I be looking to make a trade or addition from free agency or just sit tight on the team I have...

Best FA's available and team listed below. Leave a link and I will surely return all help!!

FA's: Figgins / Moreland / Uribe / Buck / Ianetta / Theriot / O Cabrera / B Wallace / C Zambrano / Peavy / Lackey / Drabek / Burnett / Moseley / Harang / Dice K

My Team
C - Hundley
1B - M Cabrera
2B - Prado (can also play 3B)
3B - A Gordon
SS - Tulo
OF - Choo / J Upton / Rasmus
Util - Berkman / A Jones
Bench - R Roberts
DL - R Zimmerman / A Hill

SP - Hanson / Cain / Ogando / D Hudson / Kennedy / Garza / Masterson / Danks
RP - Storen / Santos

I think your team is fine for now. Hill should be back pretty soon, so you'll have a lot of flexibility. You can move Prado to 3B. I didn't see any FA's that would improve your team, so just let it ride for now. 3B is particularly weak right now with Zimm and Longo out, so trying to trade up will cost more than worth, IMO.

Yeah i would stick with what you have for now. No need to start making big changes like you said its still early in the season. No one on the FA can really play over your roster.


I see your a cubs fan and value your opinion on this topic below. Thanks

Alex Gordon is a great option to fall back on, and i dont think you can improve your team much by making a wire pickup.
the only trade options i really see for you would be moving an OF, but you wont get anyone better than Gordon 3B unless you trade Choo or Upton, which would hurt your team overall.
If you can package Berkman with somebody (low end SP?) and get a decent 3B, then move Gordon back to the OF/UT i would consider it, but otherwise just hang tight for now.

thanks for your help on mine!

I don't see anyone on the wire that helps you out. I think you should ride it out and hope Gordon keeps it up.

Ride out Zimm. 6 weeks is a lot of time, but you seem to have more than enough power to ride it out.
