To start with, Molina at Util...Porcello starting???? Why? Porcello should be cut and Molina is not worth anything in a 10 team, 1 C roster league. There are probably better Cs on the free agent wire and certainly have to be better hitters than him for Util in a shallow ten team, 3 OF league.

Choo is likely not worth anything in a format this shallow as well. Marginal at best on a 5 OF league.

As to rebuilding, if you are hopelessly out of it and if this is a keeper, then it depends on how many keepers and what you can get. If this is a redraft league, then there is no point obviously.

Like SAM said, depends on the league settings, how many are kept, etc. if it's a redraft league, I hate fire sales because it ruins the balance of the league. Because let's be honest, it wouldn't be done to keep competing. And for a 10 team league, I'm a little surprised there aren't better names available in the free agent pool to rebuild for the second half of the season. You seem to have a good core to build around.
Good luck, feel free to PM me

Go on WW for batter and rank by total bases for past 14 days. Post top 20 players please.

I tend to agree with above. I would not give up yet. Your team is not terrible. I agree I would move Molina out of the Utility spot and only keep 1 C. Probably look for someone to replace Martinez also. I would dump Porcello too and look for someone on the WW with some upside--is Matz or McCullers available? Just some quick thoughts.

Help with mine?

Honestly your team is pretty good. I'd hold off on giving up so quickly. You could just be having some bad luck and facing opponents on a hot week.

help me?
