Please Help out. I am in a tough position

Postby howard » Fri Apr 03, 2009 2:18 pm

I couldn't make the live draft, so I ended up getting 3 catchers and 3 2Bs. Thanks a ton autodraft! Granted, they are the 3 best at each position, so I have trading ability, but I'm finding it tough in my league to get someone to acknowledge the value of a good catcher.

I know I'm weak in SP and outfield. Any ideas for who to target with trades would be greatly appreciated.

Active Batters
McCann, Brian C ATL
Howard, Ryan 1B PHI
Kinsler, Ian 2B TEX
Longoria, Evan 3B TB
Furcal, Rafael SS LA
Lee, Carlos N. LF HOU
Soriano, Alfonso LF CHC
Swisher, Nick CF NYY
Cabrera, Miguel 1B DET

Active Pitchers
Carpenter, Chris SP STL
Cueto, Johnny SP CIN
Johnson, Randy SP SF
Young, Chris R. SP SD
Lidge, Brad RP PHI
Soria, Joakim RP KC

Reserve Batters
Martin, Russell C LA
Martinez, Victor C CLE
Phillips, Brandon 2B CIN
Ramirez, Alexei 2B CHW

Reserve Pitchers
Marmol, Carlos RP CHC

well the great thing with alexie ram. is he has eligible at 2B/SS/CF in most leagues. I would start him in CF over swisher. I would also start phillips over kinsler. They are both good players at 2b, but phillips is a healthier player. Kinsler has not had a full season since he has been in the league.

I would think about offering a 2 for two package deal. For example: offer kinsler and k-mart for Peavy (odds are pretty high he will be traded to good team shortly) and another lesser player then mart. This would give you a great stud pitcher to go with your stacked line up.

I would trade Russell Martin and Brandon Phillips/Ian Kinsler (I like Kinsler better and think he had a freak injury last year, plus he plays in a stacked lineup in Arlington, nuff said) for someone like a Peavy, Webb, or Halladay. I love Cole Hamels but scared of his health, and I don't think you'd get Sabathia, Lincecum, or Santana, which is fine. Dan Haren would also be a good target, if you can get another pitcher in the deal too, like a Josh Johnson or someone.

Thanks a lot for your help. I'm going to go after Peavy in a 2 for 2 deal. That sounds like the best shot.
