6x6 Roto league with R, RBI, HR, SB, TB, and BA for hitters and ERA, K, WHIP, S, W, and WPCT for pitchers.
1c, 11b, 1 2b, 1 ss, 1 3b, 1 MI, 1 CI, 4 OF, 1 DH, 9 P, 2 bench.
16 team league, $275 roster with option to have up to 10 minor league players within that roster salary cap. Unlimited keepers as long as you stay under the salary cap.
I would be trading Carl Crawford $30 for Tommy Hanson $18, Clay Buchholz $13, and Lorenzo Cain $3.
My team currently looks like this:
C - empty
1b - Hosmer $6
2b - Utley $22
SS - Tulowitzki $18
3b - Beltre $26
MI - Bonifacio $6
CI - Berkman $16
OF- Crawford $30
OF- Granderson $22
OF- Holliday $25
OF- Crisp $6
DH- Lawrie $6
P - Chen $6
P- Shields $10
P- Gio Gonzalez $6
P- Marcum $7
P- Saunders $6
P- Vogelsong $6
P- Soria $17
P- Guerra $3
Allen Craig $6
I have $27 spent in minor league players that I can offload if needed. All are $3:
Nolan Arenado, Derrick Norris, Jedd Gyorko, Zack Cox, Hak-ju Lee, Carlos Martinez, Kyle Gibson, Zach Lee, and Anthony Ranaudo.
The Rockies are going to give Arenado a look at starting in spring training.
I am struggling with this trade. If both pitchers were healthy I would jump at it. Buchholz is coming off the fracture in his lower back but has been throwing. Hanson is the one that scares me more. Huge upside but also a huge injury risk.
I finished 4th last year. It was a 14 team league at that time and expanded to 16 in December. With two extra teams there will be more money to spend so it will drive up the cost to acquire Ps in the auction.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
