Ouch. Your OF is weak.

Presley, Morgan, AND Smith? Before considering this trade, what's the OF waiver wire looking like? We might be able to find you 3 better options than those guys without having to pull a move like this.

My outfield is hurting but Presley has been awesome. I know hell be limited somewhat when Tabata comes back, but ill wait and see how much since hes been stellar. Smith and morgan are decent spot starts, but lack consistency(depending on pitching both could sit the same night)
The waiver wire sucks. Im in a 13 team active league. Im almost better off finding the spot starting pitcher.
I wonder if the value is there to give up a ace in his prime for an OF I feel is about to light it up the rest of the season.

My only concern is that losing your ace might outweigh the productivity you get out of Holliday.

Your pitching is good, but is going to take a massive blow by losing Sabathia. That's why I asked about OF WW. I figured it'd be easier to grab 2 other guys to replace Morgan and Smith with. Try me.

I know youre right that is why Im posting. Youve confirmed what I thought. If my offer for braun or some of the other studs wouldve stuck it would be different. Ill sit tight for now, and try to smoke the stat cats im in.

I know it might be annoying, but I'd really love to know what OF options are available in a 13-team league. I bet there's someone I can convince you to take over Morgan. Come on! ;-D

Yeah, I totally agree. There's gotta be someone better.

If youre wondering, based on spot starts they are all batting over .300 for me except for Ichiro. Tulowitzki, Pedroia, and Ichiro have the lowest BA on my team. Of course that will change, and is changing, over the season, but if you play them right its money. Runs, homeruns, and doubles are my weakest links. I need power and there isnt any on the waiver wire, unless i get another 1B like Trumbo, but thats the last thing I need. So Ill say F..it and hope my team throws it into high gear like they are known to do.
