After viewing this forum I've taken this concept to the next level. I hope I haven't gotten carried away.
I started the season 4-1 and have guys that I personally feel are playing out of their minds. Rather than be happy with that, I am trying to trade some of these guys for struggling guys of higher caliber.
So far I have made these three moves which I'm hoping improve my team.
Trade #1: Out: Tim Hudson, Asdrubal Cabrera In: Jose Reyes
Trade #2: Out: Jair Jurjjens In: Wandy Rodriguez, Joakim Soria
Trade #3: Out: Jake Arrieta In: John Danks
This concept is a bit tough because in each trade my guys are performing way under what I gave up and there's always the question of whether they'll turn it around.
The only one I'm worried about is losing Jurjjens who may break-out. As for Reyes and Danks, for what I gave up I'm thrilled.
Any thoughts are appreciated on this. Will these guys turn it around?
