Help! Stuck in 4th place out of 5 teams! WHIR :)

Postby HoneyNutIchiros11 » Thu May 16, 2013 4:41 pm

So I've been in 4th place out of 5 teams for quite a while and I'm trying to work my way up the standings, but I'm about 80-100 points out of 1st place on average, and the third place team I'm trying to hurdle lately is about 20 points ahead.

Here's my roster and info you might need:
5 Team Roto Yahoo League- 1/1 moves used, 0/5 trades used
0.5 points-R,1B,SB,K (pitching)
-0.5 points-K (batting)
1 point-2B,RBI,SLAM, Complete Game, Shutout
-1 point-E,HR (pitching)
2 points-3B, Saves
3 points-HR (batting), W,NH
4 points-CYCLE
C-Santana(1B)
1B-Votto
2B-Kipnis
3B-Longoria
SS-A. Cabrera
OF-Bautista, Braun, Kemp, Bruce
Utility-Machado(3B), Wright(3B)
Bench-Hosmer(1B), McCann(C), Gardner(OF), Swisher(1B,OF), Zobrist(2B,SS,OF), Bourn(OF), Myers(OF)
SP-Harvey, Zimmerman, Wainwright, Lester, Hamels
RP-Medlen(SP), Romo, Axford
Bench-Morrow, Weaver, Vogelsong

First off, RP I know needs help (still no saves recorded for me yet) I tanked without noticing in the draft, used my single move for the season on dropping Motte to pick up Romo.

I have a trade offer with the second place team of Santana for Kinsler, what do you think of that? I'm thinking I want to make that trade very soon lol
Also looking to move Wright, Zobrist, Bourn and Gardner

What/who would you suggest I look into to improve my team? Leave your links and I'll try to help, thanks! :)

The team looks like it should be doing better. Wright should bring you a great player in return maybe another of. The Kinsler trade wouldnt be bad it only looks like he is out a couple of weeks and would be a nice upgrade over Kipins. Looks like Bruce is starting to get hot which should last a couple weeks he might not be a bad player to move after that if his strike outs are hurting with the points.

I'm looking into something where I might be able to get Posey, Granderson and Kershaw and I'd be giving up Wright, Swisher/Bruce and Lester... I'd only want Posey if I trade Santana for Kinsler (this way I can have a reliable catcher if McCann craps out)... Is Granderson a good buy low player or should I not bother? Also he has Bryce Harper who I would want to swap out for Posey if I don't trade Santana.

Would it be worth my while to try to go for this deal? Or should I try to get one of his two RPs (Soriano and Papelbon) instead?

Thanks for the help! :-D

We only have one move for the season and I picked up Romo, if I had more all my RP problems would be solved! ;-D but thanks!

Would I be better off with a big name 2B, a good RP or another big name OF?

I think I might be able to work out Kimbrel for Santana, or Santana and someone for Kinsler and Kimbrel... Which one of those two should I go for?

I'm talking with the manager and Kimbrel is out, he'd want a reliever in return but he doesn't like Romo and he's the only good RP I have unfortunately lol

Everyone has 2 or 3 RPs out of the 3 RP positions on our roster... I messed up if you haven't noticed hahaha

The manager said he'd be open to trading trout, but at a steep price obviously.... So I'm thinking Santana and someone from my roster for Trout and Kinsler, who do you think I could reasonably offer?
