Are you still unconvinced about Vance Worley’s success?

Connie,

I’m beginning to become more convinced but I also can’t ignore the fact that he’s benefited from a rather favorable schedule with the Red Sox being the only real tough offense that he’s faced this year. Bottom line is that he’s still a PoD guy in my mind for the time being.

I currently have J.Weeks and am thinking of dropping him for R.Davis. This spot is mainly for my SB, Avg slot. Do you think it is worth the time to switch or just stay put? Position is not important to me. I missed out on Emilio which I liked more from these 2.

HMAN,

At this point I prefer Weeks as Davis has really struggled with his AVG this season. Davis might steal more bags from here on out but I think he’ll hurt your AVG too much to make the extra SBs worth it.

Hey Zach,

Here is an interesting proposal: I want to strengthen my SP. I would offer Kemp for Halladay. That would leave me with OF’s Prado, Zobrist, Boesch, Adam Jones, and Abreu. Too thin in the OF?

Rich,

Don’t like it. I’ll always lean towards the elite hitter over the elite pitcher and a good case can be made that Kemp has been the top overall player in fantasy thus far. Plus, I wouldn’t feel comfortable with that outfield.

Zach

I thought Fister just graduated lol

thinking of adding depth to my outfield…..looking a J Jay or Austin Jackson, or possibly Torres….what do you think for ROS will produce more?

Alan,

I’ve added this question to the list of questions to be answered on today’s show so keep an eye out for that. I’d lean towards Jackson. Jay still isn’t even playing every day and Jackson hits in a much better lineup than Torres.

Hey Big Z…
I just received a trade offer in which im giving up Michale Morse for Ubaldo Jimenez, my OF consist of Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Nick Markakis, Michael Morse, Dustin Ackley and I have Howard at the Util spot because Tex is playing 1B and Butler IF. My pitching staff consist of Cliff Lee, Tim Lincecum, Shaun Marcum, Jair Jurjens, Matt Cain, Ryan Dempster, Cory Luebke, Sean Marshall, Scott Downs, Rafael Soriano (DL), Matt Thornton, Kimbrel, Santos and League as closers.
I was also offered Ian Kennedy and Chris Perez for Billy Butler. which trade you think makes more sense for me? this is a 14 team H2H league.. Thanks!!

KB,

On paper I like the first trade but considering your roster, which is absolutely stacked in starting pitching, I think I’d hold onto Morse. As for the second trade, I’d accept it immediately.

Zach

12 team keeper league. I am in 1st. Should I trade Holiday, Beachy, Strasberg for Morse, Crawford, & Greinke?

Al,

It’s a fair deal in a keeper league but since you’re obviously playing to win now, I don’t really consider Strasburg an integral part of this deal. Yeah, Holliday to Morse is a downgrade, but it’s more than made up for by the buy low addition of Crawford and the Beachy for Greinke switch, which I definitely consider to be an upgrade.

Zach

should i add joe nathan as my RP? I have sergio santos and he has just not gotten into ANY save situations since the break. What about Collmenter, as he’s listed as a RP/SP?

I would definitely go with Nathan. He seems to be back.

Connie,

Absolutely add Nathan. I see no reason why you shouldn’t make that move.

Zach

Trade offer, appreciate the help!

Give: Beckett & Victorino
Get: Beltre & Gio

Rest of Rotation: Lester, Gallardo, Garcia, Morrow, Scherzer, Stauffer, Carrasco (PoD)

Worth it?
