I put this at the end of another thread but those usually don't get nearly the response as new threads do so....

10 team redraft. 7x7 +BB & K on offense

I trade:

Helton
Abreu
F. Cordero

I receive:

Hafner
Pierre

I'm taking a risk that Hafner will explode in the 2nd half but I think it's a worthy risk. Cordero has to go down, Abreu could recover but who knows, and Helton is good but lacks power.

My offense is what has the most room to improve. I am last in HRs and very low in RBI, R, K, and BBs.

My new offense:

C - Estrada
1B - Hafner
2B - Utley
SS - Greene
MI - Fontenot (had Bill Hall here)
3B - Atkins
OF - Bonds
OF - Wells
OF - Crawford
UTIL - Pierre
BN - Pence
BN - Lowell
BN - Braun

I'm going to try to trade Lowell or Braun for a MI and/or closer.

Thoughts?

I like it, I just traded for Pronk in my league and he is clearly the key to the deal.

I ripped the guy off though, I shipped out Ryan Howard for Pronk AND Griffey..... COLLLLLD BLOOOOODED

Having Braun on the bench must be tough. That guy is tearing it up.

He is playing currently (the above trade doesn't go through until Monday) and will probably stay in the lineup in favor of Pierre until he cools off.

I need R, RBI, and HRs more than I need SBs right now.

I don't think Braun is ever going to cool off down to Pierre levels.

Hunter Pence is better than Pierre and shouldn't be on your bench. I don't see how Juan "I lead the league in outs every year" Pierre sees a day of playing time on your very solid squad.

I personally think you are giving up too much to get Hafner, but when you have the depth you have, why not put it to good use?

I agree with Dom that Pierre should probably not be in your starting lineup. However, he could help out big time if you ever need a few steals. Other than that, I would play Pence at Util.

I like the team overall, but Khalil Greene is a yucky SS. Any way you can deal some of your 3B depth (Atkins, Braun, Lowell) for a better option?

FWIW, I agree with the other posters on Pierre. Dude is just terrible; you pay a horrible price for padding your steals category.
