    ask me a question!

    new thread. i'll add some general thoughts:

    pick up: CLIFF LEE- with health, he can return to form, r BETENCOURT - borowski likely has a dead arm (at best) and betencourt does a bang up job in that role

    LONGORIA - he's worth the risk on zero information if one ever was, just like CUETO and VOLQUEZ, they're keepers. R JOHNSON is back. WELLEMEYER is droppable, he doesn't have the innings in him to start all year

    get CREDE, THOME, Y ESCOBAR off your bench or trade them. keep all TIGERS on the bench. you won't lose your season by missing a hr, but several 2 for 20's will hurt. all-star bats will eventually recover, but why should you pay for their slumps

    no one in the first 150 draft picks is dropppable, instead garner interest with the trading block tool

    if any closers are available, pick them up. even if you don't need them, someone else will. it's great trade bait that can fulfill your needs later

    • What is your take on A) Justin Upton and B) Nelson Cruz....I have major roster problems. In our league there are 2 DL spots. I have Hamilton Quentin Webb Peavy Bedard all on the DL plus I have Manny. I need more pitchers because each week i am getting good ERA but I am low in K's wins and quality starts. I suppose I should try to trade cruz and upton while they are hot but are they gonna keep it up?

    • I grab Alfredo Figaro from weivers, is that a good move, what should i expect from him??...look at my pitching staff, what do you think?...20 teams head to head

    • Should I drop Conor Jackson and Justin Upton??

    • Which starting pitcher should I drop?

      Darrell Rasner (NYY - SP)
      Aaron Laffey (Cle - SP)
      Jorge Campillo (Atl - RP)
      Edinson V?lquez (Cin - SP)
      Brandon Webb (Ari - SP)
      Dana Eveland (Oak - SP)
      Cole Hamels (Phi - SP)
      Greg Smith (Oak - SP)

      I have Smoltz on the DL, who will be my fourth closer along with Rivera, Jenks and I just picked up Perez, who I'm hoping will be the Cards closer very soon. I'm thinking about dropping either Smith or Eveland from Oakland.

    • Should I make this trade?

      I give: Mike Jacobs, Ryan Franklin

      I receive: James Shields

      My closers are: BJ Wilson, Francisco Cordero, Brian Wilson
      My starters: Lee, Joe Saunders, Chris Young, Wainwright, Ervin Santana, Scherzer, Scott Olsen
