Am I crazy for thinking this? WHIR

Postby ichirosan » Mon Jun 17, 2013 9:54 pm

20 man H2H dynasty league with 25 players per roster, holds and OPS as extra cats, we keep 20 players on a tier based system, plus 8 minor leaguers as long as they keep rookie elegibility.

My team currently looks like this:

C Matt Wieters
1B Paul Goldschmidt
2B Jason Kipnis
3B Evan Longoria
SS Ian Desmond
LF Carlos Quentin
CF Josh Reddick
RF Brandon Moss
UT Lance Berkman
BN Logan Morrison
BN Ryan Doumit
BN Will Venable
DL Matt Kemp

SP Justin Verlander
SP Jordan Zimmermann
SP Shelby Miller
SP Derek Holland
SP Josh Johnson
RP José Veras
RP Edward Mujica
RP Francisco Rodríguez
RP Mark Melancon
RP Scott Downs
BN Trevor Cahill
BN C.J. Wilson
BN Dan Straily
DL Rafael Betancourt
DL Joakim Soria

Minor leagues include Byron Buxton, Jake Marisnick, Kyle Zimmer, Alen Hanson, Delino DeShields Jr., Zach Lee, and flotsam.

So... an owner in my league is shopping Nick Castellanos (still a minor leaguer) to fill a few holes in his roster. I'm currently at 1st place, but still asked. He wants Dan Straily, Logan Morrison and Brandon Moss, though I think I can convince him to swap Moss for Doumit.

The thing is, once people start returning from the DL, I would still have to make some tough choices, and I think I could get somewhat decent players from the wire to plug those spots (Venable has been on an off my team, for example, and works great as a platoon mate for Reddick/Moss).

So... am I crazy for considering it? Or what else would you do?

I think I'd pass on this. I would look to acquire a stud OF with some of your spare parts maybe another elite MRP as well.

Yeah, I probably will.

Ideas on who to target? I'm thinking Josh Hamilton or Nick Markakis.
