Loaded OF, but could use 1B

Postby The_Idiot » Sun Aug 12, 2012 3:30 pm

10 Team Roto Redraft

My outfield is loaded. We start 4 plus I also use 2 in my Utils spots. I am good at 1B with Trumbo, but would like to flip an OF for a 1B for insurance in September (Trumbo is my only 1B. I play Headley at CI.)

Another owner is loaded at 1B.

My OFs: Cutch, Kemp, Holiday, Melky, Stanton, Revere, Ludwick, Ethier, and Reddick

His 1Bs: Pujols, Teixeira, Freeman, Butler, and M. Young

Any thoughts on a trade offer that I should make.

You should def target Freeman imo, he will be the best value out of those 1B. You won't have to pay as much as you would for Pujols or Tex, but he will give you great production. So if I was you, I would start small and offer him something like Ethier for Freeman and pray he accepts. If he doesn't, cause he prob won't, then maybe throw in Reddick, Ludwick, or a SP.

You can offer him Either plus for Freeman or Butler, but I do not think it is really necessary and worth the trouble. You can't predict injuries and with 6 weeks left, why bother? If you trade you should target improving your current active squad, not moving bench strength around imo.

Thanks for input! Also looking to give myself a little roster flexibility to make sure I can maximize all my starts at every position. I'm a little behind at 1B and also at CI given the fact that Trumbo was EVERY day player at beginning of year.
