TGR Fantasy Baseball Team

I have decided to reach out to the fans of TGR and find out how they think I am doing in fantasy baseball. I have made a bunch of moves already this season. My league had some scheduling issues and we ended up with a auto-draft. This put me into a bit of a whole since it auto-drafted me Javier Vazquez, Carlos Lee, and Derek Lee. So I have been active making two trades and 15 transactions. I started with my four keepers (Joe Mauer, Miguel Cabrera, Matt Holliday, and Jonanthan Broxton). Here is how the rest of my team filled out via the auto draft.

1. (6) Joe Mauer C
2. (15) Miguel Cabrera 1B
3. (26) Matt Holliday OF
4. (35) Jonathan Broxton RP
5. (46) Jacoby Ellsbury OF
6. (55) Brandon Phillips 2B
7. (66) Derrek Lee 1B
8. (75) Carlos Lee OF
9. (86) Javier Vázquez SP
10. (95) Ricky Nolasco SP
11. (106) Rickie Weeks 2B
12. (115) Jason Bartlett SS
13. (126) Brett Anderson SP
14. (135) Chipper Jones 3B
15. (146) Kevin Correia SP
16. (155) Alfredo Aceves RP
17. (166) Frank Francisco RP
18. (175) Vladimir Guerrero Util
19. (186) Casey Blake 3B
20. (195) Juan Rivera OF
21. (206) Jonathan Sánchez SP
22. (215)  Erik Bedard SP

So that was the team dealt to me. I have definitely made some poor decisions but I think some good ones as well. Probably shouldn’t have dropped Weeks and Sanchez but I think Heyward, Braden, and Hughes were great pickups. Help judge my moves below and maybe some advice on where I need to go from here:

1. Dropped Rickie Weeks
Added Magglio Ordonez

2. Dropped Alfredo Aceves
Added Franklin Gutierrez

3. Dropped Erik Bedard
Added Johnny Cueto

4. Dropped Jonathan Sanchez
Added Cole Hamels

5. Dropped Johnny Cueto
Added Jason Heyward

6. Dropped Casey Blake
Added Fausto Carmona

7. Dropped Juan Rivera
Added Erik Bedard (place on DL)

8. Added Chris Young

9. Traded Kevin Correia for Miguel Tejada (received Tejada)

10. Dropped Chris Young
Added Matt Capps

11. Dropped Frank Francisco
Added Ricky Romero

12. Dropped Erik Bedard (place Jacoby Ellsbury on DL)
Added Chase Headley

13. Dropped Cole Hamels
Added Dallas Braden

14. Dropped Brett Anderson
Added Phil Hughes

15. Dropped Chipper Jones
Added Brett Gardner

16. Traded Matt Holliday and Javier Vazquez for Ian Kinsler and Roy Oswalt

And Let Us Say…Amen.
