Wait Out These DLs or Make a Move? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Thu Jun 28, 2012 5:25 pm

I made some trades in light of a hoard of injuries. At this point, should I just wait out my DL guys to return or should I look to swing another deal of some kind?

I would definitely wait out Sabathia and Crawford. I would look to trade Halladay and maybe Ellsbury if you can find the right deal. Bonifacio is right in between, so I would hang on to him unless he is needed in a big trade. You may want to wait a couple days so that Halladay and Ellsbury are closer to returning so that their value is higher.

I won each of the first 8 weeks in a row. Lost weeks 9 and 10, won week 11 by a hair, and lost last week in epic fashion 15-1.

But my losses in part were do to horrendous cold spells from my studs. I recently traded Granderson and Cain to get Braun and Greinke to help my offensive consistency.

All that is to say I went from 1st place with a solid lead to 3rd place (7 games out), but in a dead heat this week and the first place team is crushing his opponent. Second place team is being knocked around by the 4th place team... you get the idea.

I wouldn't do anything right now either regarding Sabathia or Crawford. In a 12 team league with relatively standard scoring, you have a roster which I think puts you in good standing to win it all with a little luck.

I can't imagine what the first place teams roster looks like if his is so much better than yours?

Other than the 3 top young Washington SPs, I'd take your team over his. He has some guys who are just hot right now and I'd expect his team to come back to earth especially if he gets some injuries in his top pitchers. He also has one more closer than you and that could cost you in a 6x6 h2h league.

I don't know what you can get for them but as already suggested, you might send out some feelers for Ellsbury, Halladay and probably even Crawford. Keep Sabathia though as he will end the season strong, unless of course his groin injury requires some sort of hernia surgery or something like that.

Thanks for helping me.
