After the 1st week I am 1-0...

I made some roster moves. I dropped Thome, Bill Hall, and Juan Rivera and picked up Danny Espinosa, Milton Bradley, and Mark Trumbo...

So far the moves have paid off as Bradley and Trumbo have homered for me. Yahoo Sports is saying Bradley is playing with ear plugs this season. Whatever to keep his brains from oozing out...He was a good pick up for me a few years ago, and I am hoping he can continue this for a few months.

Mike Stanton and his hamstring are pissing me off. I basically played with 8 hitter the 1st week and two of them were platoon guys (Colvin and Thome).

My pitching kicked ass, and the save % stat is working in my favor. One closer and two setup guys are working. I'm already starting to blow out the stat category this week too...

Don't you have twelve categories to split up, such that you are 9-2-1, or something along those lines?

Only counting wins and losses, if there are ties the categories come into play...

Wow, one decision per week. Not many H2H leagues use that format.

A 3-game lead is substantial in your league. In my H2H league, it is nothing.

I'm hoping Broxton gets a save this weekend. I have no save chances from him this week and the team I'm playing had his guy blow a save, but he has the category won right now because 0.000% is better than 0 for 0...

Buster Posey stole 2 bases too...Holds and steals I'm running away with

Holds? Man, I could deal you Mike Adams and Sergio Santos. My bullpen is loaded with really good 8th inning guys ....

Regarding Broxton ... I am advising a sale when his price is high. He used to deal at 98 mph, but in his last game, I saw him dealing at 92-94 mph. His slider used to explode at 89-90 mph, but he was throwing it at 84 mph.

He is really not the pitcher he was three years ago. He struggled the 2nd half last year, and when the weather warms up, he is going to get rocked. A flyball pitcher dealing at 92-94 mph is going to have trouble, I suspect.

I suspect that you could deal Broxton straight up for Jordan Walden or Craig Kimbrel, two guys with outright filthy stuff and who are going to have pretty darn good save percentages.

I suffered my 1st loss this past week...There were 3 unbeaten teams and two of us faced off...I lost 9 to 5, and literally lost categories by one HR, .002 in batting average, and in save percentage (two of my relief guys got credit for blown saves)...And it's a team in my division.

Add to the fact the half of my team stopped hitting and was carried by Ike Davis and Brandon Phillips...Tabata, Posey, McGehee, and Stanton all stunk it up...

Now for this week's opponent: The other undefeated team.

Any way to deal Broxton for a better reliever? Broxton was hit around yet again on Saturday, against the butter-soft Padres, and was bailed out by a diving catch in LF.

He just looks like a walking blown save to me.

I dropped him and picked up Lindstorm from Colorado...I had Madson on my bench and he is now the closer in Philly...

Cool.

Is Sergio Santos available in your league? I know that Ozzie Guillen is murder on closers, but Santos is young, with a 95 mph fastball and a Hanrahan-like slider. He looks to me like a legitimate 25 save guy, with very good ERA, WHIP and K rate.

Broxton is now replaced as the Dodgers closer due to "elbow soreness."

Watching him pitch in April, we could see this coming. Dude was hitting 99 mph in 2009. He was hitting 91 mph in April. This was destined to happen.

I've been starting Milton Bradley in my OF the past few weeks, his average and On base % had been down, but was still getting some RBI's and SB's...but got released today after a few ejections towards the end of the week, leaving me stuck with his designated for assignment ass in my starting lineup for the week.

Thanks Seattle...

Dan-- don't you think that taking him was prettyrisky business anyway, especially with his history?

It was, but took the chance on him because he was playing with ear plugs on the field and hadnt acted up at all til this past week. He was hurt a few days but was still scoring runs and getting some stolen bases. I just wish they'd have done it earlier in the day so I could have made a move.

So now I have to finish the week with an open spot with Milton Bradley in my lineup and now Ike Davis landed on the DL too...

On a good note, I plucked Hosmer off the free agent list and is in my lineup.

Current Roster:
Buster Posey-C, 1B
Ike Davis- 1B (DL)
Brandon Phillips- 2B
Casey McGhee- 3B
Ian Desmond- SS
Mike Stanton- OF
Jose Tabata- OF
Milton Bradley- OF (NA)
Eric Hosmer- 1B, Util
Daniel Murphy- 1B, 2B, OF (Bench)
Danny Espinosa- 2B (Bench)
Jonathan Herrera- 2B, 3B (Bench)
Roy Halladay- SP
Tim Lincecum- SP
Max Scherzer- SP
AJ Burnett- SP
Rafael Soriano- RP
Ryan Madson- RP
Tyler Clippard- RP
Matt Lindstrom- RP
Aroldis Chapman- RP (Bench)

Next week's lineup will have Conor Jackson and Matt Joyce on the roster taking Bradley's spot and Davis' spot...

I was watching Joyce for about two weeks and was kind of surprised that somebody else did not snag him before me in our league. Unfortunately, he is a platoon guy and misses two games per week but when he is in the line-up, he is an OBP machine.

Zack Britton is still available in my league. I was going to pick him up but who should I drop? I was thinking AJ Burnett but he's been pretty good. Any ideas?

I don't think Britton is better than any of your starters, Dan. Burnett is the only guy who might merit being dumped in favor of Britton, but Burnett is going to give you better K totals and more wins with a better team and better bullpen.

Maybe trade Burnett?

What I did was picked up Britton and dropped Chapman. Then put both up for trade
