Postby JoshuaHavok » Wed Jul 24, 2013 2:41 pm

Everyone,
in a H2H 10-team keeper (keep12) with 30 moves(used 18so far) the stats are pretty balanced 9 for hitters, 8 for pitchers.
Our league is Pitcher heavy, so although my hitters are great, finding pitching on the wire is harder.

This is my team:
C - Joe Mauer
1B - Joey Votto
2B - Jason Kipnis
3B - David Wright
SS - Ian Desmond
CI - Paul Goldschmidt
MI – Jose Altuve
LF - Leonys Martin
CF - Andrew McCutchen
RF - Jay Bruce
Util-M. Cuddyer (probably drop for wire pick, but who?, not much trade value in my league)
Bn – Melky Cabrera
Bn - Ryan Braun
DL -Matt Holliday

SP – Homer Bailey
SP - Corey Kluber
SP – Kris Medlen
RP - Craig Kimbrel
RP –Casey Janssen
P - Glen Perkins
P - Jeremy Hellickson
BN- J. Parker

Bn - John Lackey
Bn - Brandon Beachy (DL)
DL- Alex Cobb

Guys available on the Wire: H= A. Simmons (good option), N. Franklin, A. Soriano, T. Hunter, J. Lowrie, Smoak

I'd take this trade in a heartbeat considering Braun is suspended for the rest of the year and Medlen probably goes to the pen once Beachy is back.

I would do that deal and grab up Soriano with the free spot to replace the power you traded (great move here) Bruce and Soriano are a virtual wash out. When Soriano goes to NY I think it will reinvigerate him, getting him back to comfortable known surroundings and playing for a team fighting for their playoff lives. Would also do the Cuddyer trade as well. You get Stanton...you can replace Bruce with Stanton and Soriano with the free spot and you are missing nothing and upgrading your pitching staff considerably.

Sure Simmons has been on a homer barrage but he really IMO isn't a true home run hitter. He's more of a pop up guy who has some speed that he doesn't even use.
