Will this team improve, or do I trade a closer now?

Postby Nafgar » Fri May 12, 2006 2:53 am

This is my team in a 11 team 5x5 roto leauge. I'm currently in 5th place. I'm semi-running away with saves right now, with about 15 saves ahead of the guy who has a 15 in the category. I'm steadly watching the gap widen in several batting categories. I also have a 3 in AVG.

The only changes other than the MI/CI, is we have a high innings limit of 1500, to compensate for one extra pitching slot. I'm currently ~15 innings behind, but not trying to push my luck. Especially after I started Marshall today

I'm currently considering trading a closer, mabye even papelbon, for one more bat. I think my pitching staff will hold up, I recently picked up McCarthy and dropped Marshall FYI. Any input would be appreciated.

OF- J. Gibbons
Util - J. Guillén

SP- J. Smoltz

(Awesome RP squad)
RP- J. Isringhausen
RP- T. Gordon
P- J. Valverde
P- J. Papelbon
P- S. Linebrink

BN- D. Bush
BN- B. McCarthy
DL- R. Harden

I was thinking of something like a Papelbon for a Konerko. I'd love to do a 2-2 kind of trade, but there isnt anyone really on my staff I can sell high on who isnt a closer.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Ya- let's hope the other owner will go for it. Selling high on Pabellon is a good idea. I think he'll turn out to be pretty good, but not as good as he's doing currently. Also, you probably should have another SP, so you might trade another on of elite RP squad members for a SP. You're pretty good on offense, but I'm not a fan of Monroe.. Nice Team! ;-D

Could you help with mine? ... p?t=203350

You do have 4 great closers... I would look for help in the OF, because you are pretty slim there...And you do need some SP help like the guy before me said. ... 15#1604915
