    I'd pick up another solid starter

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    With pick 6:4 I picked SP Bronson Arroyo. There was a big run on Pitchers. Bonderman still left and should I consider him or a Catcher or outfielder or consider Lugo for my bench?

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    I would go with Bonderman. Personally, I think Lugo is going to have a terrible year. He was really bad last year. I would try to see if you can get him as a steal in a later round. It really depends on the outfielders left though. If you can get a good one, then I would consider that too.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    Plus why would you pick up a bench guy when you still don't even have a starting catcher, third outfielder or several pitchers spots open?

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    What's your obsession with SP? Arroyo will probably give close to neutral or negative value for the team. You have 1 closer. You need another quality guy if any are left.

    Why would you buy low on a SP after a SP run? That doesnt make any sense

    Your team is very weak in RBI and probably AVG and SB.

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    With pick 7:4 I selected Jason Varitek Catcher BOS. What you think of the pick? I decided I needed to get a top 10 catcher and 7 or 8 of the top 10 catchers were gone. This is my lineup now. In this league you select starters daily. Bonderman and bailey and Jr and Bruce and Hamilton are still available. What direction would you go with next pick?

    C- Jason Varitek (Bos-C) 7:4
    1B- Adam Laroche (Pit-1B) 5:4
    2B- Brandon Phillips (Cin - 2B)
    3B- Ryan Zimmerman (Was - 3B)
    SS- Derek Jeter (NYY - SS)
    OF- Adam Dunn (Cin - OF)
    OF- Johnny Damon (NYY-OF) 4:4
    OF-
    Util- Rickie Weeks (Mil - 2B) 3:4

    SP- Aaron Harang (Cin - SP)
    SP- Roy Oswalt (Hou - SP)

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    I would have waited on a catcher, usually don't get a ton of production out of them anyway.

    Looks like you need some power. You could go w/ Hammy or Griff but there is a pretty big risk in doing that.

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    With pick 8:4 I selected Jay Bruce (Cin - OF). Hamilton and Jr were already selected. What should I do in the 9th round? Bonderman and Homer Bailey are still available. Bonderman is also still available and Dodgers Closer Broxton. Also should I work on my Bench since you can change lineups everyday? This is my Roster now.

    C- Jason Varitek (Bos-C) 7:4
    1B- Adam Laroche (Pit-1B) 5:4

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    why do people continue to draft Bruce?

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    Yeah, bad pick. I have him on my team by accident.

    You need an OFer still, incase Bruce doesn't make the team.

    I think they draft him in keeper leagues because he can be a terrific player. If he doesn't pan out, than that's just a lost pick. You don't get to keep everybody anyway. Why not take the risk?

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    Depending on the league set up I doubt anyone keeps him this year though.
