Need an offensive boost

Postby baseballbro34 » Sat Aug 25, 2012 3:42 pm

I'm in a 12 man h2h keeper league and my offense has been lagging lately. My lineup is below this post. I seem to be winning a lot of the pitching, but my offense has sputtered. Any ideas as to who I should trade and who I should target?

I'd be looking to move one of your closers (Cishek or Valverde) for an OF to replace Melky.

Who is E5?

Edwin Encarnacion. I'm really lacking in hits and avg categories, so who could I target?

Any above average leadoff hitter. Preferably an OF.

Is Michael Bourn an ideal guy?

I was also offered a trade of Melky and Kipnis for Bruce and Phillips which also involves a few draft picks for next year. what do yall think?

Yep.

I would probably pass on this, but I'd like to know which draft picks are being exchanged. Bruce is a good player but not an ideal fit for your team. Kipnis is having a tremendous season while Phillips is getting older.
