I've come to a bit of a big problem with my team with how I'm too attached to all or most of my players with how well they've been playing, I've been in the top two of my league in every fantasy week so far, 6 out of 7 were in first, and I have a couple of things I want to do with my roster: 1. I need a reliable short stop and none are available in FA 2. I find my roster has too many first and third basemen and starting pitchers
My roster is as follows: C-Joe Mauer(1B) 1B-Eric Hosmer 2B-Dustin Pedroia 3B-Brett Lawrie SS-None OF-Ryan Braun, Matt Holliday, Ichiro Suzuki Utility-David Wright (3B), Edwin Encarnacion (1B,3B) SP-Jered Weaver, James Shields, Brandon Morrow, Steven Strasburg RP-John Axford, Heath Bell Bench-Carlos Santana (C,1B), Kyle Lohse (SP), Adam Wainwright (SP) DL-Matt Kemp (OF), Carl Crawford (DL)
I'm not sure who could be used as good trade bait and who to look for in return for a trade. Any sort of 1 for 1, 2 for 1, 3 for 2, etc. isn't a problem by me because I'd need an open roster spot for Kemp when he's back next week.
Any advice or trade ideas? Any help is appreciated!
I'd try and sell high on encarnacion especially since you already have lawrie and wright. Someone might give up top tier SS for him, if not at least a middle of pack one with maybe a pitcher thrown in.

trade encarnacion and suzuki for maybe a Elvis andrus or Asdrupal cabrera type SS. I'm sure thats a fair trade because you'll get a good shortstop and you'll have room for kemp when he gets back help with mine?

I agree with the above post. I doubt you will be able to get Tulo unless the owner is really panicking but most likely he was a 1st round pick and many people aren't willing to give up on them this fast unless they are getting a really quality guy in return. You should be able to Andrus or Cabrera though.
I asked my friend who has asdrubal if he'd do Edwin and ichiro for him but he said "I'd have to have pedroia with Edwin, and even that's giving you a bargain." so I told him he's out of his mind... The search continues!
