Look at my line up. I traded for many of my players or picked them up through waivers and free agency. This team has a lot of underrated players that put up big numbers. If one of my players is in a slump, the other players are raking. Only question is, how can I make this team any better? Maybe a back up 3rd basemen or trade for another solid closer. What do you guys think

Mike Napoli
Nick Swisher
Allen Craig

David Freese
Jose Reyes
Andre Ethier
Adam Jones
Angel Pagan
Shin-Soo Choo
Mike Trout
Adam LaRoche
Allen Craig
Yoenis Cespedes

Kelly Johnson

Pitchers:
Lance Lynn
Felix Hernandez
Jason Motte
Santiago Casilla
Brandon Morrow
Kyle Lohse
Matt Cain
Ryan Vogelsong

CJ Wilson

Clay Buchholez

Why do you have Jemile Weeks on your team, there isnt anyone better on free agency?

Your team is good though, I like it other than weeks. My pitching is so good I dont really want to trade any body on my team. I just picked up Buchholez and I will see how he does, dont really need the guy because my pitching stats have been solid all year. Wilson, Cain, and Hernandez are great...Lynn, Morrow, and Vogelsong have been great. Closers are doing their job so I cant complain.

On the offensive side, where do you think I can improve. The only players I really want to trade are LaRoche, Cespedes, Johnson, and maybe Shin Soo Choo. Choo had 10 runs this past week and has been doing great, I think he is worth a lot for some people.

Give me a list of the top free agents, the amount of people in your league, what type of league it is, the amount of players you need to start (positions), and your league settings.

We talked about it a bit, but I have a 78% rating in baseball on yahoo, 69% in football, and 89% in basketball.  Helps with the bets...I'm in extremely competitive leagues too.

Kelly johnson rides the bench and is there for back up reason. i dont agree with you saying that he should not be owned in any format. I do agree he could be dropped for someone else.

I just put Morrow on DL and picked up houston street for now.

Someone offered me Sandoval/Youkilis/Downs for Lohse/Choo/LaRoche

I agree with you saying trade LaRoche while his stock is high.

I dont want to trade Etheir man he is the NL RBI leader and I did a lot to get him on my team.

Im trying to aquire Sandoval and Tulo in a 3 for 2 man trade. If I can pull that off i will be too good for any team.

 Evereth Cabrera might be a sleeper MI, for stolen bases. He has been playing full time.
Or you can maybe try and trade Eithier and Vogelelson for Trout if you need Stolen Bases and Runs.

NEW LINE UP

Mike Napoli
Nick Swisher
Allen Craig

David Freese
Jose Reyes
Andre Ethier
Adam Jones
Angel Pagan
Pablo Sandoval
Mike Trout
Allen Craig
Yoenis Cespedes

Kelly Johnson

Tulowitzki (DL)

Pitchers:
Lance Lynn
Felix Hernandez
Jason Motte
Santiago Casilla
Brandon Morrow (DL)
Doug Fister

Matt Cain
Ryan Vogelsong

CJ Wilson

Clay Buchholez

Houston Street 

-------------------------------------------

Couple drops/adds and I traded Shin Soo Choo/LaRoche/Lohse for Tulowitzki (DL) and Pablo Sandoval. There is no way any team can beat this team. I have the best pitching and my offense speaks for itself. I mean common, I would give up if I was in this league. I only have 5 original players that I started out with.

I put Allen Craig twice....

What a fuckin team though. I am trying right now to trade Lance Lynn for Cliff Lee. Lynns stock is high and Lees is down since he doesnt have any wins. I dont think Lynn carries this into the 2nd half of the season. Lee will still end up with like 10 wins and a lot of K's and a far lower ERA. I also want Josh Hamilton/Miggy Cabrera, but I dont know who I want to get rid of.

Josh Hamilton is a living legend.
Maybe he ends up on the Padres next year?
Keep an eye out for the new Padre owners. Deep pockets.

Time for Mr. Moore's to kick rocks. for good.

I hope he doesnt go to the Padres, that would be horrible. Unless they move in those walls.

I hope he goes to the Giants.

Just traded Lance Lynn for Cliff Lee. I think Lee gets some wins and lowers his ERA. I think Lynn is done dominating.

Trade for a better MI, you cannot have Weeks on a winning team. Pick up Plouffe now! I did, but had to drop him because he would see no playing time on my team.

They should not move the fences in at Petco.  It is a legendary pitchers park.. Josh Hamilton lit up Petco.  He is faster than I thought too. And he was a foot taller than Yonder Alonso. He is a monster. He belongs in  Petco.

Yes I would pick up Rickie weeks or Infante. They are both much better players. Weeks has to turn it around for the second half of the season so I would pick him up.

Why dont you just make a trade? You have some good trade players. Willingham could be traded, Pagan, Young, and Paplebon. Make some trades with those players. You have a great OF with Andre, Grandy, and Melky.
