    Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    In my keeper base ball league i am being offered Adrian Beltre (3b Seattle) and Noah Lowry (SP- SF) for Roger Clemens (SP- NYY). Would you take the deal? This is my Roster currently.

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    Hard to say what Clemens will do this season, but since it's a keeper league, I'd love to have Lowry for future seasons.

    I'd see if you could get something different than Beltre, but that shouldn't be the sticking point.

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    The other thing to consider is that if Clemens gets off to a quick start his value will go up, even in a keeper league. If I owned Clemens I would trade him straight up for Lowry but since Beltre is also being offered I would see what else you could get instead of Beltre. I'm curious as to how you are doing in this league? You are Cincinnati Red heavy and picking favorite players over better fantasy players might make it more fun but usually doesn't work that well in the standings.
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    I am currently 12th out of 14 teams. I finished 4th last year.

    I accepted the trade and dropped Cody Ross. I decided I was getting a good pitcher for Clemons plus getting a good player in Beltre. Thanks for the advice that was given.

    I added Darin Erstad and dropped Mariano Rivera. This is my roster now. Any advice?

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    I would've tried to deal Mariano. I wouldn't have dropped him...certainly not for Darrin Erstad.

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    I know but was in a roster jam. I needed a outfielder with Freel Hurt. Erstad can also play 1B which will help with having Laroche at 1B. We will be having either 6 or 8 keepers. Any suggestions on who to keep? Remember I will be getting Adrian Beltre (3b Seattle) and Noah Lowry (SP- SF) for Roger Clemens (SP- NYY).

    I dropped Erstad for Xavier Nady? What does anyone think?

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    One of the first things I would do was try to move some of your Reds players. It is never a good idea to have too many players from the same team on fantasy. It is OK if they have a blow out game, but more often than not, they will not all produce.

    As for your keepers
    Dunn- seems to be only source of power.
    Pierre- steals are hard to get.
    Jeter
    Harang
    Oswalt
    Gorzalany

    Then I would look at
    Bailey and Miller to see how they do.

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    Thanks Redsfan for the advice. Would you also consider watching Hamilton or Zimmerman? This is my current roster showing the Lowry and Beltre trade. Does that change your Keeper advice?
