    Would you make this fantasy trade?

    Pedro and Brandon Looper

    for

    Danny Graves and Wade Miller

    I have Graves/Miller so...Pedro is not what he should be right now, but is it a good time to sell high on Graves and buy low on Pedro? Looper has been dominating, just doesn't have the saves. I have John Smoltz as my other closer right now, but he also hasn't gotten the saves that he should (7).

    Suggestions?

    Pedro inevitably always ends up on the DL at some point during the season. Graves is on fire as far as saves go. It probably won't last all season, but I don't think he'll fall of the face of the earth. Is this a head to head league, or roto? If its roto, you probably have a big lead in saves. If its head to head, you have to keep Graves, IMO. Smoltz could break down during the season as well and then you'd be in trouble. I would focus on another ACE type pitcher instead of Pedro. His numbers are down this year for a reason, he doesn't have dominating stuff anymore, and he's a huge injury risk to boot. Halladay just went on the DL today and might be had for less than what he should. Jason Schmidt is a good target for a trade like this. Others: Kerry Wood (on DL); Prior (coming off DL tomorrow), Oswalt (value somewhat down), etc.

    This is a roto league.I am currently in 3rd in saves. A guy uses 3-4 RP every night so he is beating me by 8 (He has Herges, Hoffman, Dotel, Nathan)

    My offense is pretty decent. I'm in the top 5 in every category except SB, but my SP is horrible. I missed my live draft so the CPU picked all kinds of hitters.

    My SP are: Kip Wells, Escobar, Trachsel, Miller, Paul Wilson, Webb.

    Pedro's been giving me headaches all season. Season totals are worse that some of my no name pitchers I've snagged.
