Trading my RP so who should I target?

Postby vladrules » Sun Jul 22, 2012 12:44 am

12 team standard 5x5 roto nonkeeper Yahoo league w/daily transactions. Leading in Saves and need help in R, SB, AVG (all less than 4 points). Could always grab RP throughout season.

Humanoid Typhoon
C Jarrod Saltalamacchia (BOS - C)
1B Mark Teixeira (NYY - 1B)
2B Brandon Phillips (Cin - 2B)
3B Pablo Sandoval (SF - 1B,3B)
SS Mike Aviles (BOS - 2B,3B,SS)
OF Matt Kemp (LAD - OF)
OF B.J. Upton (TB - OF)
OF Justin Ruggiano (MIA - OF)
Util Ryan Howard (PHI - 1B)
Util Allen Craig (STL - 1B,2B,OF)
BN Will Middlebrooks (BOS - 3B)
BN Ike Davis (NYM - 1B)
BN Wilin Rosario (COL - C)

SP Yovani Gallardo (MIL - SP)
SP C.J. Wilson (LAA - SP)
RP Aroldis Chapman (Cin - RP)
RP Joel Hanrahan (Pit - RP)
P Ernesto Frieri (LAA - RP)
P Alfredo Aceves (Bos - SP,RP)
P Jason Motte (STL - RP)
P Vinnie Pestano (Cle - RP)
BN Jonathon Niese (NYM - SP)
BN Josh Collmenter (ARI - SP, RP) *streaming spot
DL Brandon McCarthy (OAK - SP)

Thinking of dropping Ruggiano for KC OF LCain.

Want to trade some RP because can always RP (closers or good RP). Think I could add OF but do I look to upgrade SS Aviles so keep him on bench? FA SS include SDrew, DGordon (DL)

Following teams need RP help:
- Goyan Keys has 3B Freese (has Arod at 3B), OF Ethier, SS JPeralta (has Jeter at SS)
- Penguins has AMcCutcheon (cost too much) and 5 other OF (JWillingham, MHolliday, SChoo, AJackson, DJennings)
- Dean's Demons has SS EAndrus, OF Pence

1) What RP could I trade to Penguins for SChoo, Holliday or AJackson?
2) Trade RP for any of 3B Freese (upgrade over Middlebrooks?), OF Ethier or SS Peralta (upgrade over Aviles?)
3) After trading other RP, thinking of trading Ike Davis to pigheaded (last in HR) for RP SRomo (he's always solid with great Ks, ratios and some cheap W/Saves)
4) what buy low SP could I target? Cliff Lee, Lincecum, Greinke and any others?

1) Another owner who is last in HR so thinking of offer IDavis for Greinke (if not then maybe SRomo and I just keep streaming SP)

2) Should I upgrade at SS? Add FA DGordon or trade for TEX SS Andrus or DET SS JPeralta. Could offer Aceves.

3) Which OF should I target: Ethier, Choo, Holliday or AJackson? I'd offer Motte.

1) You won't get Greinke for Davis, even with recent production
2) Maybe keep Aceves and roll the dice on adding Gordon
3) Choo and Holliday
