wow thats a lot of stats and positions but yes that was a good trade for you. Heyward is showing he can play the game and Helton is old and will do just ok.
Ur team is pretty good overall
Weak spots: id play chone over ortiz. ortiz lost his consistancy and isnt playing well.
trade russell martin if somebody needs a catcher but get good value for him
beltre is iffy. i thought he would be breaking out in Boston but hasnt yet, keep an eye on him.

You wont be getting as many saves for Fuentes as last year but i would go with pettitte or thornton. Thornton if rp doesnt have any stats in a league. Pettite if he falls off or Wolf he others apply
I've been offered P Fielder and M Young for my Sabathia and Zimmerman. The team dealing Fielder has Howard, Fielder, Pena, and Dunn, but lacks in SP depth, explaining why he'd make this deal.
If I made the deal, obviously Young would replace Zimmerman at 3B. While I'm not a huge Young fan, I have lots of SP depth (Lincy, Sabathia, Lester, Hanson, Nolasco, Price, Liriano) and have Butler at 1B and Prado at IF (so Fielder would essentially be replacing Prado at UTIL).
Also, what are your thought on Aaron Hill? How much of an upgrade over Howie Kendrick/Prado is he at 2B?

Its a decent trade but I gotta side with no. CC is very valuable as with Zimmerman. I think Zimmerman will have a freakin great as year if he gets healthy. If he wants CC he gotta switch young out with someone else better.
And Hill is exactly what I did not want to draft. He is an way older guy who had the best year last year. He was put way too high in this draft. Kendrick or Prade will give you better overall stats but Hill will have some pop this year more than prado.
