Just snuck out a single-digit victory thanks to Hanley's huge Saturday. Today I'm sitting Quintana, so expect excellence.

I snagged the Fat Panda with my #1 Waiver Priority on May 1st. All he's done for me is bat .318 with 6 HR, 19 RBI and 17 R with an .881 OPS. Looking to flip him as part of a package deal now, with Zimm approaching his return from the DL.

I'm letting Masterson start in my h2h %-6 but it's the 1st day of the week so how bad could that hurt as I'll have 6 days to clean up the mess. :-b

5x5 (OBP instead of runs). No bench.

I have Chisenhall in my CI spot after putting Prince on the DL (unlimited DL spots). I am strong already in HR, Average is my biggest need which is the only reason I am hesitating. I am still leaning toward Singleton in hoping that it increases my overall team value to help me pursue a trade later on.

Agree?

I'm pretty comfortable starting Hamels anywhere, away to Cincinnati included. I'm unsure who I would sit in favor of Hamels. Maybe Garcia, but he has a two-start week as far as I know. Maybe Hughes, but he's been pitching well and he has Houston.

Now that we're two months in, who are you guys trading for and looking to deal away?

I'd start Hamels over Garcia despite the juicy matchup. I just don't trust Jaime.

I'm looking to trade Hamels. It's not that I don't like him. I just don't see the Phillies being good enough to get him any respectable Win total. I have him in a points league where I'm pursuing W and QS, in general, and despite Wins being largely unpredictable, that offense is just anemic, and I see him pitching a lot of games like yesterday, where he deserves to be in contention for a W, and just coming up blank.

I'm also looking to trade Pablo Sandoval off of his hot May.

I am doing everything humanly possible to try and trade for Ryan Braun.

I find myself in a tough position of having guys who just have little trade value, because others are gun shy about paying for their production thus far, and risking a fall off. Guys like Dozier and Frazier I feel like I'm stuck with.
