Who should I be looking at?

Postby slickrick327 » Sat Jul 25, 2009 12:05 pm

Here is my team:

C - B. Inge
1B - M. Teixeira
2B - R. Cano
3B - K. Youkilis
SS - J. Bartlett
OF - Ichiro
OF - B.J. Upton
OF - S. Victorino
UTIL - N. Markakis
Bench - B. Abreu
Bench - B. Hawpe
Bench - M. Wieters

P - J. Santana
P - S. Baker
P - A. Wainwright
P - R. Romero
P - C. Volstad
P - R. Harden
P - C. Morton
Bench - H. Bell
Bench - B. Fuentes

I know I have some extra outfield talent laying around, but who should I be shopping and who should I be looking for in return? I have been wanting some more reliable pitching. Any thoughts, whether on that idea or anything else, would be very helpful and appreciated. Thanks!

You should be shopping Victorino, Abreu or Ichiro. They give you the same thing, HIGH AVG and some SBs. You don't need all three.

I would be looking for some power. You've got Teixiera but I don't see you getting a lot of HRs from the rest of your team down the stretch. Trade one the guys mentioned above for a HR hitter. Because you have so many guys who hit for AVG you get a Mark Reynolds/Adam Dunn type who doesn't hit for AVG.

You are missing that second starter after Santana. You have depth at pitching but not that second lights out guy.

The ideal trade would be one of those OFs mentioned + one of your 3rd tier pitchers for and Adam Dunn type and Jar Jurrijins (undervalued put consistant lights out pitcher)

You've got enough speed, I would move Ichiro(he's worth a fortune batting that) and maybe a Baker, get a decent #2 pitcher and a Adam Dunn/Jermaine Dye type
