I have turned Mark DeRosa into Jimmy Rollins. The first part, we had a very impatient owner, and on April 4:

Quote:
Danny Almonte's All-Stars dropped Mark DeRosa, ChC 2B to Waivers
Danny Almonte's All-Stars added Garrett Atkins, Col 3B from Waivers to Bench


And today, this has just been accepted:

Quote:
METS traded Jimmy Rollins*, Phi SS to Danny Almonte's All-Stars
Danny Almonte's All-Stars traded Troy Tulowitzki, Col SS to Mets
Danny Almonte's All-Stars traded Garrett Atkins, Col 3B to Mets


Now, am I overpaying for Rollins? A bit, yes, but it is a keeper league, so it not only boosts me this year, but it gives me a head start on next season too. Can I afford it? I would think so, and I have two pitchers (Kazmir and Harden) on the DL, and since they're coming off the DL soon, I need to free up roster space. My roster, once the trade processes on Friday (assuming there aren't enough veto votes):

C - Geovany Soto
1B - Alex Gordon
2B - BJ Upton
SS - Jimmy Rollins
3B - Miguel Cabrera
OF - Carlos Lee
OF - Chris B. Young
OF - Curtis Granderson
UTIL - Corey Hart
B - Michael Bourn
B - Paul Konerko

So for next season, it looks like that I'll have to choose 5 of (unless I can convince the league to raise the # of keepers) Upton, Rollins, Cabrera, Lee, Young, Granderson, Hart, Scott Kazmir and Felix Hernandez. I figure 3 are already taken in Rollins, Upton and Cabrera, but the other two might be a tough decision, unless I can make some offseason trades.

Sound like a good decision?

This is has just been answered for me with the news that Tulowitzki may be out until the All-Star Break with a tear in his quad :lol:

The trade processed today (apparently I didn't know May 1 was today, I thought it was tomorrow for some reason.) Unfortunately, BJ Upton is DTD, so I picked up Polanco (the best available 2B) to fill second base for the next couple days, and I guess come Sunday, I drop Polanco and activate Kazmir, who has a career 3.06 ERA in May and 2.66 ERA against Boston.
