    • I dropped upton and got Soria. I figure he has a shot at the closer job in texas. Now just looking to upgrade SP/SS/2B. Would you advise trading wieters and pickup someone like Salty?

    • Wieters is a throw away. I wasted a draft pick on him last year and he was awful. Start shoppin for a Cather. Goldschmidt, Longoria, Everth, Ellsbury, Choo and Rios are all very solid, but outside of that your lacking power. You NEVER know what your getting from heyward, hamilton, crawford, and upton. As far as pitching, your staff leaves a lot to be desired. you have your work cut out for you, but remember championships aren't necessarily won w/ drafts. Manage your way to the top! overall: 6/10

    • Good outfield. Rather than bank of one of your 2B or SS having a solid season, I would trade for a better option. I think the two players who are most overvalued in a possible trade are Sanchez and Hamilton. See if you can package them to land a top 5 2B or SS. As OF is so deep, you are generally better off trading any of your 4-7 OF to boost your weak infield.

    • Little lack in power, even with Hamilton and Heyward, but with Hamilton's dead attributes it's like adding Moss or Dunn to make it all better, but not quite as drastic. SS needs to be improved, you already have a "steals" guy in Ells so it's just a waste. Wieters and his .235 aren't worth a starting spot anymore. Drop BJ, now. SP is thin, Kluber shouldn't be owned, and with such few arms, Samardzija's ERA will hurt. RP is weak too. I'll give it a 7.5/10.

    • I feel like 2b might be an area for improvement, utley is loosing speed and power in a bad/old lineup. Assuming you are playing in a H2H league, I don't usually see the need for too many bench players since they almost never get used. Some will argue the opposite but I don't see the need of having three guys that may get a total of three games in your lineup vs. three extra sp that will get starts. Pitching depth has more impact than hitting depth in my book. Your SP might be a little weak. Just my thoughts on things.
