Help me continue my charge at first

Postby garretterik » Wed Aug 01, 2012 5:29 pm

I dominated my league before the all star break.
But been in second for the past month.
I made a few trades and pick ups (added Kemp, Nova, Sheets, Fiers, and Harvey).
Now I have closed the gap and am only a few points behind.

I am thinking of doing a 2-1 trade of and picking up a speedster and a closer to help close the gap in saves and steals.
1. Should I offer my Zobrist and Harvey or Sheets for his RSoriano(NYY-RP), o CJanssen(Tor-RP)
2. Who do I pick up off the ww:
bats: CGomez(Mil-OF), JRuggiano(Mai-OF), BRevere(Min-OF), JRutledge(Col-SS), DSpan(Min-OF), JValdespin(NYM-OF), PCiriacco (Bos-2B,SS) also ARod, Plouffe, Uggla, Chipper, and Desmond were all recently dropped
arms: SP: Vargas, Minor, Feldman, Helickson, Bucholz, Blanton, Colon, Hughes, Lester, Morrow, and Parker are available
RP: FFrancisco, SChisek, and GHolland

See if you can sell high on Harvey. Two good starts thusfar. I think 1B could use a big upgrade.

I would definitely look at Hellickson and Morrow on the WW.

close your eyes and drop harvey for holland....also consider dropping zobrist since in your league he is not that atractive or needed because ugla is on for speed, go with whoever get on base the most
