    Re: Keeper league trade advice needed.

    I would do that right now.

    Lackey may not pitch for awhile.

    Tough one. Vlad is on the decline and Lackey is hurting. I think your offense looks better than your pitching, so I'm not sure I pull the trigger on this deal.

    Maybe see if you throw in Choo if the other team would throw in a SP?

    Re: Keeper league trade advice needed.

    He ended up trading him to someone else for Marmol. I did waive Chris Perez and picked up Rich Hill and Tim Hudson and put them on the Dl. I still have 1 DL spot Left that I can put Lackey on. This would allow me to pick up 1 more player. I did also picked up Billy Wagner. This is my Roster now. Does this look more balanced? What does anyone think of those moves?

    Re: Keeper league trade advice needed.

    No on both. Keep Nathan- he is your only reliable source of saves. I would actually be trying to obtain another closer or look on the waiver wire for saves.

    I just dropped Billy Wagner and picked up J.P. Howell. This is my roster now. I am wondering if I should get Phil Hughes who is a free agent.

    Scott Downs available?
    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.
