Final Push & Need Impact Player WHIR!!!

Postby KSig24 » Tue Jul 31, 2012 2:46 pm

I am currently in 2nd place and surging. I am in need of some advice as to what I need. I feel something is missing. The one caveat is that I only have 3 moves left for the remainder of the season. Thanks!!!

Hitting stats: 1st R, 3t for HR, 4t in RBI, 3rd in SB and 3rd in OBP
Pitching stats: 5th in W, 5th SV, 6th in K, 4th in ERA and 5th in WHIP

It seems as if my pitching needs the boost.

Wire:
Chris Carter - I love the power and the newly found plate discipline. Trumbo had 36 HR in MiLB and look at him now. Carter had 38!
Mike Carp
J.D. Martinez
Todd Frazier
Wilin Rosario
Yonder Alonso

Pitchers:
Phelps - love him b/c of ERA, WHIP, K, W
Medlen
Martin Perez

Agree. Nothing is wowing me on that list, not enough to burn one of your three remaining moves. I would try dealing for pitching. You have a pretty beastly OF. Perhaps package one of them and a decent pitcher for an upper tier pitcher and decent OF replacement?

This is a keeper league and I own Kinsler, Wright, Cutch, Heyward, Felix, Jones, Hosmer, Holliday. I cant keep Holliday after this year though, no room. I could deal him, but for who? I need that one impact player that will help me. Holliday has been a beast!

I wouldn't waste one of my pick up spots on any of the guys that you listed. Since you're going to be losing Matt Holliday you might as well trade him for something. you should be able to get a good return for him as he's a solid outfielder.

I agree with most of the posts above in that none of those players are wowing me. If you're considering dealing Holliday for pitching why not take a shot at a guy like Mike Fiers. He's still fresh and pitching well because he wasn't even in the rotation at the beginning of the season (so he'll probably get starts down the stretch), he's young, and it looks as if he's going to stick in the rotation even after the return of Shaun Marcum. Plus, he came out of nowhere so whoever has him might be willing to deal if they think they're getting a proven player like Holliday in return.
