This forum rocks! Can't believe how much you guys have helped me so I am going to the well once again. I am in a 12 team 5x5 roto league. I am in first place by a lot but other teams are gaining ground. This is only my 2nd season and I finished 11th out of 12 last year. This league has been going for awhile and I don't know the other players very well. I want to propose some realistic trades w/o pissing people off, maybe you guys can help.
I am first in all 5 offensive categories but I am last in K's and about mid-pack in W's. I also have Konerko, Teixeira, and Billy Butler with only 1 utility spot so every day one of them is on the bench.
C - Posey
1b - Teixeira, Konerko, Butler
2b - Kipnis, Altuve
3b - Beltre, C. Jones
ss - D Gordon
of - Kemp, A. Jones, M Cabrera, J Schafer, C. Crawford (DL)
sp - C Lee, R Romero, C Lewis, J Cueto, C Billingsley
rp - H Santiago, J Guerra, J Johnson, Farnsworth (DL)
I am 1st of 12 in all 5 offensive categories, t4th in Wins, 2nd in Saves, 11th in K's, 3rd in ERA, 3rd in WHIP - 1st overall but my lead is shrinking.
Do I need more balance? Should I trade a 1b (yes), if so which one and who should I target? Should I just be patient? Your advice helps newbies a ton!
