Thanks for the advice guys.
Here are some of the top rated outfielders left in my league.
your pitching looks great! However you have several holes in your hitting. Your weak in the infield except for J-Roll. There has to be a free agent better than Alex Gordon. Joey Votto would be a nice pick up, it looks like he may start and he has the potential for atleast 35 HRs, 25 SBs and .290 average. You should start Martinez at 1B and McCann at catcher, which will leave you more options for your utility position. Other than that, hope for the best with what you got.
Your infield is fairly solid and balanced. But you are probably a little thin at outfield and steals specifically and you may need some HRs. I would scour the waver wires for good OF or look to trade some starting pitching for OF help. A couple of outfielders that you might be able to get reasonably are Corey Hart and Chris Young, both are undervalued in most leagues and give you power and speed. Drew needs to go.
Next time join a Live draft league. You have a National League catcher at Utility. We know catchers do not play in all their teams games, especially NL ones. Offer McCann in a trade for a closer...look at Free Agents for guys who were undrafted at closer. George Sherrill is Balts closer and he probably didn't get draftedon autopick. Also, JD drew is a stiff...get him on the bench and get Matsui in. See if Conor Jackson is available because I don't like Alex Gordon at 1B...there has got to be a better option there.
