A few more saves wouldn't hurt.

A couple reasons: It's always nice to have a backup catcher given that they rest more than the other positions, plus many forecasters see him bouncing back due to him fighting through injuries and having an unlucky BABIP last year. I'm hoping he has a strong start so I can package him in a trade for an outfielder or shortstop.

Well I certainly wouldn't just drop him outright. Beltran, although injury prone, is still younger than you might think at 32 years old. Also, when the Mets are healthy (which seems like never I know), they have a pretty good lineup. He's actually a guy I would try to trade for, because I need steals and runs.
Kinsler on Dl for a little while longer
For speed Gardner on NYY looks good and maybe fa in league
I ve had Billingsly and been burned by him a lot hes too easy to hit I think.
Im guessing you drafted toward the end or took Maur early and then Kinsler who is hurt just hold on for now.
Your bench looks expendable and do whatever changes with those guys

Yeah, the thing is, I have two guys I'm leaning on for speed : Kinsler and Bourn, one is injured for a short while and the other isn't really established.
The guys I wouldn't mind trading are Hawpe, Peralta, Drew, Soto (hanging onto him in hopes his value increases), and one of my starters; perhaps Webb once he gets going, or Billingsley.
I'm thinking Billingsley will bounce back, and hoping Kershaw has a great follow up year. Projecting my stats I'm a little short in runs and stolen bases on offense and maybe saves in pitching.
Any attainable player I could get with 100+ runs and 20+ stolen bases you think?

Ha I remember people saying that last year when I had:
Mauer, A-Rod, Utley, Braun, Sizemore...literally an all-star team. Only won the league by 15 points.
I was looking for realistic suggestions but guess I won't find that here since the baseball IQ seems to be about as high as my shoe size.
