I guess now with all the injuries in the Yankees OF Ibanez is going to be forced to play every day, but I don't really see any reason to do this, I see them basically having similar numbers.

Interesting. Would you consider any other moves?

I don't really see anything on the wire that helps your team. With Longoria getting closer to returning, I might be looking to sell high on Encarnacion and maybe packaging him with Kendrick, since you have Infante on your bench, and maybe upgrading somewhere. If you did a 2/1 deal you could ride Lowrie while he's hot on the wire until Longoria is back. How's your pitching?

This is my pitching. Although, we can't use the BN slot for batters. MUST ONLY have 2 BN throughout the season.

Man, it's tough for me to see McDonald and Norris on the wire...... But with your league and the way bench is used, makes it tough to make a move here. if anything, I wouldn't really feel a need to have a lot of RP just for holds........ If there was any angle I was looking to move for one of those two WW starters.
