Bump

Any thoughts? In 9th place and losing 7-9 this week so trying to beef up the utility. Leave a link too.

None of those options are too thrilling, but I guess I could see giving Lee or Ibanez a shot, since they've both been hitting better lately...probably Ibanez, as he's been really solid the last couple weeks. Is Luke Scott available? If so, I'd probably pick him up over the other choices.

Not sure if you're better off with one of those instead of Wallace though. Probably a better chance at HRs, if thats the main thing you're seeking.

Is Wallace going to fall off a cliff after his hot start or should he be pretty productive? Any projections? Still better than Trumbo given the Morales news?

Yeah, I think Wallace will come back to earth big-time. He'll probably still provide a decent average, but probably not above the .270-.280 range. And if you're looking for power, I dont think Wallace will give you much. maybe 10-15 HRs the rest of the season.

Trumbo has more power, but the AVG and OBP will not be good.

I see Ibanez and Lee out-producing both of these guys, assuming they can stay healthy.

I'd go Trumbo, Not sure his Avg hurts you as much as Derek Lee's might, I feel some regression from his career .280 Avg this late in his career

I say drop him and get trumbo

now my question for you is how in the world you got ALL of those studs in a 6 person keeper league lol...clearly you kept greinke and crawford b/c they are on contract

keepers
1. greinke
2. crawford

beyond those two i see halladay / hernandez / lincecum / hanley / cargo / a-rod / pedey / fielder who are all 1st through 3rd round talents lol

nice work by you i guess

This is the team I drafted ... and I wasn't thrilled with it at all. I'm currently in 9th place and paying for the early slumps. Nonetheless, I got to work. I traded away a lot of the headaches, but as you can see, I REALLY had the move things around to not be burried even more. My utility used to be great, but I was much weaker at the positions and SP, so I am happier with the tradeoff. Still kicking myself for dropping Berkman though in week 1. But can't always make the right move all the time.

ORIGINAL TEAM I DRAFTED (* means contract year keeperwise):
C K. Suzuki
1B A. Dunn*
2B G. Beckham
3B E. Longoria*
SS D. Jeter
OF C. Crawford*
OF J. Ellsbury
OF A. McCutchen
UT M. Stanton
UT C. Granderson
UT G. Sizemore
BN B. Harper
BN L. Berkman
BN T. Wigginton

SP F. Hernandez
SP T. Lincecum
SP B. Anderson
RP C. Perez
RP B. Lyon
P U. Jimenez*
P R. Soriano
P D. Braden
BN J. Vazquez
BN S. Strasburg

I'm drop Wallance for Trumbo. With Morales now out for the season, Trumbo will be an everyday player for the rest of the year.

I keep hearing some many different things.

Anyone else feel strongly about Trumbo or Wallace? I need better HR/RBI production with consistency at Utility.
