Who do I drop or package for a trade? - WHIR (leave a link)

Postby V » Tue May 31, 2011 9:25 pm

12 team 5x5 roto, 3 keepers, 3rd place:

I have to lose a player to move Bailey off DL, and have no roster flexibility for pickups (for example, I had no room to pick up Crow last night, etc.).

Bottom 3 players are probably Hill, Sizemore, Bedard, but I'm a 'believer' on all three. Tough decision. Have considered floating some offers (Berkman+Hanson+RP for Pujols, for example), but not sure how much I should offer and for who.

My team:
C: J.P. Arencibia
1B: Kevin Youkilis
2B: Neil Walker
3B: Evan Longoria
SS: Jhonny Peralta
IF: Lance Berkman
OF: Curtis Granderson
OF: Jayson Werth
OF: Matt Joyce
OF: Michael Bourn
U: David Ortiz
BN: Grady Sizemore
BN: Aaron Hill

SP: CC Sabathia
SP: Tommy Hanson
SP: Cole Hamels
RP: Chris Perez
RP: John Axford
P: David Price
P: Josh Beckett
P: Mark Melancon
P: Mat Latos
BN: Eric Bedard
DL: Andrew Bailey

I would personally drop Hill. 1 hr so far this season. He seems to be hitting the ball better last few weeks but Neil Walker should be just fine imo.

You could also drop Sizemore if you're sick of putting him on the dl all the time. :-D

It is either drop Hill or make a trade. If you were to make a deal, Berkman would be on top of the list. I don't think he continues hitting like he has so moving him while his value is still high is your best bet. Look to see who could use an OF/1B and see where their depth is and then make an offer.
