Have you ever had to have a rebuilding season(s)? I just took over a team in an established dynasty leage (you keep your entire roster from year to year), and my god is it awful. The team came in 10th of 12 last year and I've got it projected to come in 11th in 2005 based on the current rosters.
My question is this; should I have my fire sale now, or closer to the trade deadline? At what point could I get more value for my aging veterans? Right now more teams think they're 'in it', but obviously at the deadline some teams will be making a huge push for the home stretch. If anyone's curious here's my roster below:
Players I'm excited to have for the long term:
Crawford, Greinke, BJ Ryan, Valverde
Players who I'm indifferent to but they might be nice to have if my team was competitive:
Delgado, Sexson,J Lopez, Edmonds, Pavano, Lilly, Piazza, Kent, Podsednik
Complete roster filler:
Uribe, K Matsui, J Guillen, Glavine, Chacon, Eaton, Wakefield, N Robertson, Graves, Di Young, J Jones, R Sanders
Fairly standard point league, pitchers and hitting are worth roughly the same.
