CESPEDES DL RETURN- DROP OR TRADE?

Postby STLBJ » Fri Apr 19, 2013 10:09 pm

I'm new to fantasy this year and could use some help. Cespedes will be returning from the DL in next week and I will need to make room. So far my league has been unwilling to trade. I've been trying to shop Chris Davis in a package for a decent closer but haven't had any bites. I picked up Markaikis off Waivers while Cespedes is out and recently dropped D. Espinosa for David Ortiz off waivers.
I like my team and dont' want to drop anyone but I now have a log jam at 1B and OF. I really would like an IF that can cover 3B and 2b. Any thoughts? Need Advice!

Herrera is droppable in a 12 team unless Holds count.

One of the OFs (Gardner?) can go. Is Matt Carpenter available in your league? If you use 10 games, as of tomorrow, he should qualify at 1b, 3b, 2b, and of. That will increase his value dramatically. Chris Nelson is another 2b/3b option. Jeff Keppinger.

I've been trying to trade for Carpenter. I'm a STL guy so I know how how valuable he is. The owner has him at first so I offered Chris Davis, Josh Willingham, And Cespedes for Carpenter and Jay Bruce. No Bueno. I was hoping Gardner would be my team leader for SB's but it seems like that may be all he is valuable for and has none so far.

Herrera can go. So can Teheran. Teheran has outright stunk and just because he blew some minor leaguers away in ST, everyone thinks he is the next great SP. Proves the old adage that ST stats are worthless.

Herrera does some nice things, I would drop Teheran, he just isn't ready, and it's questionable if he ever will be. Regardless, I'd drop him to make room.

Teheran for Cespedes. I can't believe you can't get a closer for what your offering its fair.
