Don't think it's in my best interest to pick up Bonds. He's a part time player who will hurt my production on the days he's not in the lineup. And the following report isn't very encouraging:
Jun 8 Updating previous reports, ESPN.com reports San Francisco Giants OF Barry Bonds (side) is unsure whether he will play in upcoming series against the Pittsburgh Pirates, which begins Thursday, June 8. Bonds tweaked his side last weekend and the injury has worsened over the course of the week. He is listed as day-to-day.
Other guys on my WW are Granderson, Baldelli, Thames, G. Anderson, and Matthews Jr. Who would I drop to get one of those guys?
As for SP, I already have two of the top 11 SP's in the league in Kazmir and Glavine. Liriano is Johan lite. Willis is back to his 2005 form and got me a CG this week. Mulder's in a bad stretch but he's a household name. Escobar and Cain are servicable. I also have Patterson coming back in a couple weeks which is the equivalent of adding an elite starter. So top to bottom, I think the staff is okay.
I've tried to acquire an elite pitcher. One owner wants Konerko or Ortiz for J. Santana and I'm just not ready to do that. I've been starving for AVG/HR/RBI for the last few weeks so the last thing I want to do is trade one of my best hitters while I'm struggling. I've actually won pitching the last few weeks. I think the staff is actually solid and well-balanced. Right now, I'm just looking to upgrade Green with an elite OF like a Guerrero or C. Lee.
Right now, I have a deal offered for C. Lee. I'm offering Green, Mulder, and Walker. The other team needs another SP and a closer.
As for team speed, with Figgins, Rollins, and Weeks, I'm winning SBs just about every week. No need for me to overpay for a guy like Crawford's speed. I have all the speed I need. All I need now is a power bat to go along with Dunn and Dye.
That's about it. I cracked up at your "winning more weeks" comment because I'm actually in 1st place in a 12 team league. I'm just looking to maintain at or near the top and wanted to get people's takes. I'm always looking to improve and tweak wherever possible.
