    • forgot your util slot- obvously use helton for BA

    • ok do this!!!!
      Keep johan and vazquez. trade peavy for a big bat, prince or ryan howard. trade cole for a multi stat guy like bj upton (he's good since you can use him in 2 positions, bonus!) if not maybe granderson. now you still need to make one more big move put putz on the block see what other big OF bat you can get maybe manny (contract yr) or adam dunn (poor avg though, manny is the better choice) if you can't get any 1 to bite on that then move hoffman for sheffield or take a shot with delmon young. trade delgado for an innings eater with upside, maybe dice-k. now your team is solid you might actually win!!!
      line up
      c- salty
      1b- prince
      2b- upton/kendrick
      ss- tulowitzki
      3b- beltre
      of- manny
      of- pierre
      of- upton/guillen/burrell
      sp- johan
      sp- vazquez
      rp- mariano
      rp- hoffman
      p- dice-k
      p- zito(play him situationally)
      see if you can move one of your back ups for another rp maybe heath bell or okijima

    • 3 only because you can trade pitchers away, but if the other teams in your league are smart they wont make any deals w/ you 'till the all-star break by then you'll be out of innings and no way will 1 or 2 bats get you back from the mess you put yourself in during the 1st half. make a move now if you can

    • Dump schill, zito and delgado 4 granderson/sizemore/t. hunter. you'll get some hr/sb's

    • dude you cannot take pitchers for 7 of your 8 picks... I would definitely trade one or two away for some decent hitting

    • thanks guys.....what OF should i look at....i sorta want to keep pierre since he is my ONLY base stealer

    • I'm not sure your pitching is as strong as you think. Obviously, santana, peavy and hamels are studs. Your closers are older and may be susceptible to injury. Putz is solid. I don't like Zito or Schilling. Javier Vazquez is not bad.

      But on the bright side, your offense may not be as bad as you think. Tulowitzki, helton, burrell, beltre, kendrick, blalock and sanchez are all solid. I would say focus on getting some help in the OF. Maybe try to get younger in the RP. You could get rid of Rivera and Hoffman, possibly for Lidge, Gagne, Soriano, etc.

      I would rate your team as a 6. Upgrade in the OF and your closers and your team could improve up to maybe 7 or 8.

    • yea, your stacked in pitching but your gonna get rocked in hitting.
