Postby tommo » Wed Apr 17, 2013 3:35 pm

12 team 6x6 roto league with OPS and QS. I lost Hill and Aybar. Looking to make a move for Hanley. I'm being offered Hanley and one of Lynn, Shelby Miller, Hellickson, Anderson, Ogando for my Jordan Zimmerman or Doug Fister. My pitchers are Hamels, Zimmerman, Fister, Niese, Hudson, Garcia, Beckett, Wilhelmson, and Henderson. What do you think is the best combo to make this deal? Thanks!

What are my team weaknesses where do I need to improve and what kind of trades should I be proposing

Would you trade away Reyes?
How valuable is Ortiz? LaRoche? Swisher?
Who would be the first droppable player (other than Jeter who I am keeping)?

Too early to label Kipnis a bust? Prado will soon be 2b elligible so I will have one extraneous 2b. I liked Kipnis a lot coming into the season though.

Tom if you can get Hanley and Shelby Miller for your Doug Fister I would jump all over that quickly.
Nick clean up your post so I can read it better. Get rid of all that settings, etc....please!

Yes I see no reason to keep Jeter with your other options and you have Desmond. Don't trade Reyes right now you won't get fair value for him. He should be back right around the trade deadline if you want to deal him for a difference maker wait til later UNLESS someone will give you fair value for him now then by all means :D.

I would consider moving Kipnis and Prado for a 3b upgrade Maybe Longo his lack of power so far might be enough...

Alltuve is a solid 2b and that's enough.
