2013-05-29 18:30:00 (link to chat)What's going on? In a yahoo league rotisserie standard 8 team league. Standard starters with a utility player. We use 2 SP,2RP 3P in general. I really need to make a couple of adjustments. Need to add another pitcher and solid bar to this line up. This league is tough with trades! so would need to rely on the waivers Who should we ditch and is there anyone we should be tracking or picking up? Here is the squad...Here is the squad...

Hey coach.

It's always difficult to answer a full blown roster question without having access to everyone else's roster and teams. Generally speaking, your offense looks strong, although in a shallow league under performing players like Weeks should probably be shown the door. On the pitching side, I think that Lincecum is a weak play for an eight-team mixed format. None of the free agents stand out, but Aoki could arguably be added to your squad. (Mike Gianella)
2010-11-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you had to guess now, who do you think becomes the FA bargain of the offseason? My guess was Kuroda, but his deal was quick and relatively expensive. Dunn the other year was a great example of what I mean.....a good player sitting there at a bargain price for anyone to take later in the offseason.
(Will from Mactaquac)
I was with you on Kuroda. Maybe Magglio Ordonez, who hasn't seemed to generate a buzz commensurate with his offensive abilities. Javier Vazquez might make an NL team happy. The market for late-inning relievers is deep enough that someone like J.J. Putz or Grant Balfour could end up signing a below-market deal. (Ben Lindbergh)
2009-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Christina, there are a lot of Pirates fans that are furious over the non-tendering of Matt Capps. While I am not certain he would be worth the $3.5-4M he would receive in arby, I'm wondering if it wasn't worth the risk to accept the arby price tag, hope that he returns to form and then deal him at or before the deadline. Did Huntington screw up, or is there more to this decision than meets the eye?
(karp62 from NY)
Capps really was pretty terrible last season, and at that price, there are usually better buys on the market. If you're holding onto a bounce-back possibility, he's hefty, he's had shoulder issues, and he's two years removed from 2007. Is he going to grow up to be one of the best relievers in the game? That seems unlikely. To put it another way, why pay that for Capps when J.J. Putz signed for less as a free agent? (Christina Kahrl)
