    Trade just made...

    10 team redraft. 7x7 +BB and Ks on offense . I am DEAD last in HR, and in the bottom 3 in RBI, R, BB, and K. I needed some offensive life infused. I also believe I am selling Shields at the right time (wish I would have 2 weeks ago), as well as Granderson not being able to keep his current pace. Lee will be lucky to hit 25 HRs.

    I trade:

    Derrek Lee
    James Shields
    Curtis Granderson

    I receive:

    Barry Bonds
    Vernon Wells
    Ian Kinsler

    My post trade team:

    C - Estrada (Piazza on DL)
    1B - Helton
    2B - Utley
    SS - Hall
    3B - Atkins
    OF - Crawford
    OF - Bonds
    OF - Wells
    UTIL - Kinsler or Abreu
    BN - Pence
    BN - Lowell

    SP - Sheets, Smoltz, Carmona, Guthrie, Marshall, Gorzelanny, Carpenter (DL)
    RP - F. Cordero, C. Cordero, Capps

    Only way I have to go is up.

    You look like you have a decent team. What place are you in?

    I dunno, Kinsler has only hit about 3 or 4 homeruns since his hot April and Wells' power numbers are down this year. Bonds could turn out okay if he stays at his current pace though, especially since BB are a category for you.

    I'd start Lowell over the guys you have listed at UTIL

    I am currently in 9th place. My offense has been abysmal all season. That is why I went out and made this trade.

    Bonds should give me 70+ walks the rest of the year, not K very much, and 20+ HRs. I am near last or last in HR, RBI, K, and BB.

    Also banking on Wells to at least try to get back to his normal self.

    I was starting Lowell at 3B before I picked up Atkins (off waivers btw) but he was out of the lineup for awhile and has slowed considerably.

    Wells should put up 15-20 HRs the rest of the year. Kinsler is a question mark, but he has the potential to go on another HR binge like earlier, and has been hot lately.

    It's a worthy risk. When you're trying to catch up, it's much more difficult to stay patient --you often have to take risks.

    It hurts some that Kinsler just went out for a month, but I wasn't really counting on him as much as I was Bonds and Wells. They have both paid large dividends in the short time I've had them.

    I really think Wells will have a monster 2nd half and Bonds should keep his pace that he's had so far. I'm really counting on the walks, HRs, and lack of Ks Bonds will provide.

    Too bad there's not a "gigantic head" category, or Bonds would still be a 5 tool fool.

    Re: Trade just made...

    Here is another trade I just did in this same league.

    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 worth y risk. Cordero has to go down, Abreu could recover but who knows, and Helton is good but lacks power.

    My new team after this deal:

    C - Estrada
    1B - Hafner
    2B - Utley
    3B - Atkins
    SS - Hall
    MI - K. Greene
    OF - Bonds
    OF - Wells
    OF - Crawford
    UTIL - Pierre
    BN - Lowell
    BN - Pence
    BN - Braun

    SP - Smoltz
    SP - Carmona
    SP - Guthrie
    SP - Gorzelanny
    SP - Sheets
    SP - Billingsley
    RP - Capps
    RP - C. Cordero
    RP- Alfonseca

    I'll be looking to trade Lowell or Braun for a MI and/or a closer. I might try to get a more reliable starter for Pence.
