Outfield Power Upgrade.... WHIR

Postby Justin_Case » Tue Jul 17, 2012 3:31 pm

10 Team 5x5 Redraft Roto and currently in 4th
I've got a surplus of 1B and a pretty weak OF and I'm looking to add HRs and RBIs. I've got Freeman and Rizzo taking turns in my UTL spot with Middlebrooks on the bench but OFs like Revere and Pagan starting everyday in my OF. I'm looking to target an elite OF power bat like Hamilton, McCutch, CarGo, Cruz or even roll the dice on Joey Bats.

Do you think doing something like Pujols or Prince for CarGo, Hamilton (who is struggling), McCutch makes sense? Or should I trade a lower-tier player like Freeman for a player like Willingham, Rasmus, Stanton (back late August)? Or stand still and see if Young turns it around or I find someone off WW?

My team:
C A.J. Pierzynski (CWS - C)
1B Albert Pujols (LAA - 1B)
2B Ian Kinsler (Tex - 2B)
3B Miguel Cabrera (Det - 1B,3B)
SS Asdrubal Cabrera (Cle - SS)
CI Prince Fielder (Det - 1B)
MI Trevor Plouffe (Min - 2B,3B,SS,OF)
OF Jay Bruce (Cin - OF)
OF Michael Morse (Was - 1B,OF)
OF Ben Revere (Min - OF)
OF Angel Pagan (SF - OF)
OF Michael Bourn (Atl - OF)
Util Freddie Freeman (Atl - 1B)
BN Will Middlebrooks (Bos - 3B)
BN Chase Utley (Phi - 2B)
BN Chris Young (Ari - OF)
BN Anthony Rizzo (ChC - 1B)
BN Lucas Duda (NYM - 1B,OF)
BN Wil Myers (KC - C)NA

I'd shoot high on an OF. You've got too many speed guys that aren't going to really help you in the power dept. If Pujols will get you Cutch, I'd do it.

help with mine?

Id try and go for McCutchen, I would give Pujols for him if you must.

If McCutchen is too expensive then go after Willingham. I have him in a league and he's been awesome for me

Please help me? viewtopic.php?t=450637

If he has too many speed guys then why would trading Pujols for McCutchen do him any good? He is just gaining more speed.

If I was you I would keep Pujols, and try to acquire some power another way. Maybe trade Chase Utley or Ian Kinsler packaged with one of your speed OF'ers for a power bat. That would make much more sense imo.
