First post, desperately need advice please!

Postby HoneyNutIchiros11 » Tue May 22, 2012 7:38 pm

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!

Welcome to the 'Cafe' ;-D

An 8 team league, and no SS available 8-o - there has to be some one, but if not I'd love to move Hosmer.

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.

help with mine?

Do you think I could snag a Tulowitzki or a little bit lower than top tier for Castro/Hanley/Reyes/Asdrubal for Edwin?

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.

Alright thanks a lot for the help guys

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!
