MLSFM: Week Ten - Trade Oba for Dempsey Vote

The experiment to tap into the knowledge of the Sounder at Heart community to manage a fantasy team continues. Week nine kicks off in less than 48 hours, so it is time to start thinking about week ten.

But, first a quick recap of week eight. The S@H Crowd Sourced team achieved a respectable 68 points. That's 24 points above the average. Bringing in Sam (NY) to play captain and Horst (HOU) to pick up some points in defense (a decision that didn't work out as well as I hoped with Houston's uninspiring performance in both of their games last week) helped. Of course, the Sounders on the roster produced points: Frei (5 points), Marshall (7 points), and Martins (8 points).

The Fantasy Manager pundits at mlssoccer.com suggest acquiring Dempsey. They also suggest picking up Martins and Neagle. Martins is already on the roster and there is one more space for a Sounder, but the salary cap is a brutal thing and Dempsey isn't cheap. So in addition to any other suggestions you may have--leave them in the comments below--vote on if the team should trade away Oba to bring Dempsey in for the Sounders' double game week.

There is $0.3M in the bank. The current roster is below.
