Hey guys I am in a H2H league and i am in 1st place with only 1 loss so far. just traded C.lee, Michael Young and Vernon wells for Braun. I Picked up Freeman to take my 1b/3b slot which allowed me to deal young.
Just want thoughts. My team Looks like this after the deal. I felt since its such a deep pitcher year i can do spot starts with my free bench space.

I am assuming that is Cliff Lee and not Carlos Lee.
I think this was a good deal for you. Your SP took a hit but I don't think it should kill you and you might be able to find some quality pitchers off the WW that you can stream. But overall I think you did very well.

Solid team here I reckon. What SP are available since you have a free spot now? If you only start 3 OF I'd cut Alex Rios for a SP as well.
The best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be!
When I first read the subject, I thought C Lee was Carlos Lee for some reason.
Oh well. Michael Young and Vernon Wells aren't the BIGGEST of losses. Personally, I'm a big fan of Freeman the rest of the way. He could even put up better numbers than Heyward (if we're talking about the next gen of Braves).
Braun is a stud. He's one of the top 5 players in fantasy baseball, and you could maybe make the argument he's the number one overall. I think this is a case of a good package for getting a stud. I hate losing Lee, but let's face it--he actually can throw a stinker every now and again. For someone who is an "ace", he regularly gets shelled every 5th or 6th outing it seems.

I had to waiver bud Norris before i made the move to make sure i could get freeman, allowing me to shop young(while he is scorching) I wanted all contact and power hitters (upton,braun,Holliday,Hamilton) Rios is my 5th OF spot.
I want to pick Norris back up as he leads my WW list in points. next in line is Mahlom. but it seems that there is good match ups every week so spot start anyway. If i grab Norris then i can spot start my last pitcher.
Its a 5 OF league so i don't have any hitters on my bench (I prefer having the excess pitchers)
