Have Aram and Fujikawa on DL. Bourne just went on today. Only have 2 DL spots. Could sit it out until Fuji comes back. Should I drop him and put Bourne in DL slot, then pick up one of these FA?

Cuddyer, Marte, Scutaro

12 team H2H 5x5 standard scoring

My team: C Rosario, 1B Pujols, 2B Altuve, 3B Gyorko, SS A. Escobar OF Holliday, Ellsbury, C. Davis U Rutledge
Bench Bourne, Hosmer DL Aram
SP Strasburg, Moore, Harvey, Kuroda, Iwakuma, Beckett, Griffin
RP Nathan, Grilli, Jansen DL Fujikawa

Drop Fuji, put Bourne on DL and pick up one of 3 FA
Drop Gyorko and pick up Scutaro
Drop Rutledge and pick up Cuddyer or Marte

But, do any of these moves help my team?

Usually have Aram at 3B with Bourne in OF and Davis at U (or whoever is hot)

Any help will be appreciated.

Mad Dog, revisiting my previous post, he only wants Zimmerman and won't settle for Fister. Does that change things?

I'm in a Standard Yahoo 5X5 league. 9 Teams in this league.

Was offered Gincarlo Stanton straight up for Mark Trumbo. If I do the deal, Todd Frazier becomes my primary 3B.

Would have 5 OF on my roster: Carlos Gonzalez, Josh Hamilton, B.J. Upton, Jay Bruce, and Stanton with Allen Craig and Zobrist also having OF eligibility.

Starting 9 would be:
C: Santana,
1B: Pujols,
2B: Utley,
SS: Zobrist,
3B: Frazier,
OF Gonzalez/Hamilton/Stanton,
Util: Upton/Craig or Bruce

And I also have Granderson on the DL.

(I had a heck of a draft and picked up a couple of steals off the waiver wire)

This trade scares me because Stanton is on a team that sucks and Trumbo is in a lineup that's loaded. Thoughts? Should I pull the trigger?

Stephen yes I'd do that deal and try to package 2 OF (BJ or good OF here/Frazier) for Longoria in separate deals and the other to acquire maybe Pedroia for 2b. Don't trust Utley.

Tom - yes still do it you can afford to deal Zimm and its minimal risk on Hanley if you ask me.

Carnac - dump Fujikawa DL Bourn and snag up Marte (who would be giving you what Bourn would give) speed, runs and an occasional homer. No brainer here. Don't worry you already have three good closers as it is.

Ill ask the Dog Something!

What prospect is going to make a big impact this year (this years Trout & Harper)?

When do you think they are coming up?

Madden already more or less said that Myers wont be up until June so they could hold on to him for another year, like they did with Longoria
