Ive been searching for another ace for over a month now and the owner of Timmy is finally willing to trade him after his 3 bad starts in a row.
But he wants Fielder for him, as his 1B position is looking abysmal.
Normally i wouldnt trade a bat of that caliber for any pitcher but i currently have Hosmer just rotting away on my bench and my pitching has been horrible - ERA over 5 past 3 weeks and whip around 1.35
Also my offense is ridiculous and im smashing the entire league in every one of the 6 offensive categories (R, RBI, HR, SB, H, OBP) so i can afford to lose the power... but is this a wise move?
Im a huge Giants fan so i may not be thinking about it completely objectively. (Altho it does make fantasy much funner when you have players on your team you can root for)
C: Carlos Santana (C,1B)
1B: Miguel Cabrera (1B)
2B: Kelly Johnson (2B)
3B: Kevin Youkilis (1B,3B)
SS: Starlin Castro (SS)
OF: Jose Bautista (3B,OF), Jacoby Ellsbury (OF), Curtis Granderson (OF), Justin Upton (OF)
Util: Prince Fielder (1B)
BN: Eric Hosmer (1B),
DL: Matt Holliday (OF)
SP: Jordan Zimmermann (SP), Jon Lester (SP), Daniel Hudson (SP), Francisco Liriano (SP)
RP: Craig Kimbrel (RP), Fernando Salas (RP)
P: Huston Street (RP), Sergio Santos (RP),
BN: Michael Pineda (SP), Brandon Morrow (SP), Max Scherzer (SP), Mat Latos (SP)
DL: Brandon Beachy (SP), Stephen Strasburg (SP)
a few keeper considerations:
Prince is keepable as a 3rd rounder
Timmy is a keepable as a 2nd rounder.
i would probably NOT be keeping either one, but its likely i can redraft whichever one of the 2 end up on my team, bc im cutting my 2nd rounder (holliday) after the season and will likely be the only owner in the league to have a 2nd rd pick
