Just suffered my first loss. WHIR

Postby dodgerfan415 » Tue Apr 22, 2014 2:19 am

So, I am still in first place but just suffered my first weekly loss. 10-team league, h2h 6x6 team with standard cats plus BB for offense and IP for pitching.

Just looking for some insight on how to improve my team via trade, WW, etc.

C Lucroy
1B Hosmer
2B Hill
3B Alvarez
SS Andrus
OF Cargon
OF Heyward
OF Puig
U Jones
BN Springer, Aramis Ramirez, Desmond Jennings, VMart, Mark Teixeria

SP Gray, Archer, Samardzjia, Darvish, McAllister,
RP Kimbrel, Axford, Santos, Farnsworth, Machi
DL: Robertson, Sale, Hamels

Hamels is coming off the DL on Wednesday, so I will need to either make a trade sending away an extra player or cut a player to make room for him. I do have two trade offers I have sent out that would accomplish this, but have yet to hear back. Just wanting to get thoughts on other possibilities.

I have extra OF and with Teixeria coming off the DL even more extra 1B then I already had.

My trade offers I have sent out would see me trading Heyward/Samardzjia/McAllister for Cano/CIngrani and Jennings/Hill for Pedroia.

I seriously doubt I will land Cano, but he needs SP really bad so it was worth a shot. I think I can land Pedroia, though I may have to tweak the offer a little but she needs a serious upgrade at OF.

Any thoughts are appreciated and reciprocated. WHIR

If those trades fall through McAllister would be the guy I cut. In a 10 team I think there are better options. He would be a stream option for me.

Right now Heyward is struggling. Bad. 2 hits vs lefties all season. As someone who has seen everyone of his at-bats I would bench him for Jennings now that he is back in the lineup tonight.

Drop Tex. He isn't even on a team in my 14 man league. The WW has to have better SPs to stream (for IP) or definitely better performing bats.

Springer is a great prospect but in a 10 team I don't think there is any room for him. You can probably hold on to him for a week and see if he breaks out but these are small rosters, I can't find room for him.
