Just got done drafting in custom Yahoo league. 12 teams, H2H, 5x5.
I had a kind of weird draft, and took some risks. Given Yahoo's rankings, I knew some players would be taken off the board, which forced my hand. Helton being available in the 4th round was too good for me to pass up, though it left me with an extra 1B/UT stud.
I like my team, but clearly my SP needs help. I'd like to address it via trade. See below for ideas.
My Team (with round drafted in parentheses):
C - Barrett (22)
1B - Teixeira (1)
2B - Cano (14)
3B - Blalock (7)
SS - Reyes (2)
OF - V. Wells (6)
OF - Bonds (9)
OF - C. Crisp (11)
UT - Hafner (3)
Bench - Helton (4), J. Dye (17), P. Wilson (18)
SP - F. Hernandez (5)
SP - M. Cain (15)
RP - Gagne (8)
RP - Foulke (10)
P - C. Ray (12)
P - T. Gordon (13)
P - C. Young (16)
Bench - Escobar (19), Devine (20), Bedard (21)
Clearly I need to trade either Hafner, Helton or Teixeira for some SP. Here are teams with weaker 1B and there SP:
Morneau - Peavy, Halladay
Berkman/Swisher - Santana, Prior
Overbay - Zambrano, Pettitte
Wilkerson - Caprenter
Giambi - Pedro, Randy Johnson
I'd prefer to move Helton. Who should I be targeting? Should I try a Teixeira for Santana trade?
