    I have been offered Bonds for Liriano....

    My offense is BAD.

    Should I trade the next Johan Santana for Bonds? Will bonds even see the field from here on out?

    Your offense isn't bad. I wouldn't do it. Too risky.

    Re: I have been offered Bonds for Liriano....

    Holy crap, how many players do you have on your team? I count 18 offensive players.

    Your offense is far from bad. Berkman, Utley, Figgins, Manny, Cantu, Helton, Alou, Kearns, and Freel is a pretty damn good offense. You think your offense is bad because Manny, Utley, Cantu, and Figgins have not got off to good starts. You'll be fine.

    When Minnesota allows Liriano to start, he'll have a bigger impact to fantasy than Felix had last year or this year. He is that good.

    EDIT: Wow, 32 player team. That is the most I have ever heard of. My next question is how mnay teams are in your league? To have that many good players on a 32 player team makes me think you're in a leaguewith like 3 other people.

    Yeah, your right, they are not bad. They are just struggling big time right now. Utley finally shows up last night and I had benched him.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Don't do this, your offense will come around. That's a great team.
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    Bonds could be in some serious legal troubles...all Liriano is dealing with is a DUI. That is peanuts compared to what Bonds could end up with.

    Thanks all. I'll reject the offer.

    Hopefully Bonds just goes away.

    Re: I have been offered Bonds for Liriano....

    Buckeye33, we have 8 teams in our league. We go through yahoo and we had a live draft. We also were able to keep 3 from last year's roster.

    Believe it or not, I had three of the weaker keepers (going into the draft) in Berkman, Utley, and Ramirez. I think I took Helton or Figgins with my first pick of the draft and so far I have picked up Kearns, Hardy, Wilson, Lowell, N. Johnson, and Swisher. We have unlimited pick-up's. I also picked up Liriano. You'd think with 30 per roster after the draft, that Liriano would not be available, but we have haevy activity on the waiver wire (due to the unlimited pick-up's) and I think someone dropped him when he wasn't put in the rotation out of spring.

    We have an unordinarily low inning max of 1050 innings and we are able to start something like, 4 SP's, 4 RP's and 2 P's. Because of that I needed value per inning, so relievers were the way to go as I stocked my roster full of closers. I even took the few relievers that were labeled SP/RP (Dempster, Kennedy, and Heilman) so that I could start them daily as SP's and get their relief points.
