Ouch!

Got a nasty Sonavabench today at the hands of Adam Lind.

I have Ibanez in my LF slot so Lind rides the pine most of the time and having hitters on the bench who should be starting drives me crazy. I've tried trading him, but no interest. Will have another go. My team is below. Any suggestions for guys to package/trade targets gratefully received. 12-team, H2H, 5x5 plus OBP and Holds.

C Iannetta
1B Morneau
2B Utley
3B Aramis
SS Felipe
LF Ibanez
CF Beltran
RF J Upton (riding the hot streak)
Util Votto
BN Lind
BN Hart

SP - Bills, Haren, Wainwright, Lowe, Wandy, Wolf
RP - Qualls, Franklin, F-Cord, Percy, Bailey, Sherrill
Stashed - Hanson
DL - K Escobar

It's very difficult to trade an outfielder in a league where you only start three. One thing you can try is sending someone for Rollins as his value is low. Maybe Lind and Hart? Or Beltran?

Yeah - it's tough.

The manager who has Rollins is the one I got Hart from, so I doubt he's go for that.

He might go for Beltran, but that would leave me without a CF, altho (shhh!) Dexter is on the wire. So is R-Spill.

Is Beltran plus Felipe too much for Rollins? He'd be without a SS so Felipe could fill that gap and I'd have room for Dexter.

EDIT: Doh! Would love to get Rollins, but it doesn't really clear my LF logjam (we have specific outfield positions in this league).

EDIT #2: How about Lind + Felipe for Al-Ram? Guy with Al-Ram has Choo at LF.

This one is the only one I'd consider but Felipe and Al-Ram aren't that different.

Thanks. Might try Lind and Felipe for Rollins. Doubt he goes for it, but worth a try.

EDIT: Being Sonavabenched by Hart too! Hope Upton has a big day...

How about trying to swap Lind for S Drew?

Or are Felipe and Drew pretty similar?

Eh, they're pretty close.

The guy with Rollins has Manny in his LF slot. Gotta give it a try now.

Sure, that's fair.
