Tout Wars Transactions: Will Axford Get the Axe?

Tout Wars Transactions, John Axford, NJ Baseball

Taking a look at the Tout Wars Mixed League bids before Week 2 of the Fantasy Baseball season!

It looks like several owners have lost faith in Brewers closer John Axford, as they made reliever Jim Henderson the most expensive free-agent purchase of 2013 so far. Axford has looked bad, so it could be a matter of time before he gets the hook. He started slow last year as well.

For my team, I need a middle-infield replacement for Brian Roberts (hamstring), so I picked up Dodgers 2B Mark Ellis for one buck. I’m not excited about it, but there just aren’t a lot of decent middle infielders available. I was also looking at Donovan Solano of the Marlins.
