I had to make a decision. Eight teams in this 18-team league make the playoffs. I’m 8-6 and right now would be #8. Am I a buyer or a seller? Well, as long as you don’t cripple yourself entirely for next year, I say try to win every year.
I traded my second and ninth round picks for Craig Kimbrel, Chris Carpenter and an 11th round pick. I also have an extra third round selection that I got in another deal, so I still have enough picks to fill my roster. I add one of the best closers in the game, and I think Carpenter could have an excellent second half.
