Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I would leave the team alone and see what needs tweaks are needed. I don't think you can spare a big slugger. As I see it, you have 2 dependable sources of power, EE and Bautista. Pujols is a nice addition to the line, but who knows if last season predicts this season. Gattis is a good choice at catcher, and he should hit well in Houston, but you need him, neither he or Pujols will get the type of up grade your looking for at 3B or SS.
I don't like trading power bats for pitching. Pitching is a need position, but power bats are hard to find. You not going to fill every position with a stud player in a 12 team league. Besides, where would the fun or challenge come from. and isn't that way you play the game for? You have to look for serviceable numbers in one or two categories. Cabrera has those for the SS position, and Alvarez at 3B.

Yahoo! has handled this disgracefully. All they had to do was just say up front that for whatever reason there are going to be no pro leagues this year. I remain a fan of Y! but they have a lot to learn about customer service

First of all, Rios has a thumb injury, that even he says, he'll have to manage through the season. I put Morse in the UT spot. The days of Mauer being a force in fantasy are over. I'd rather have Napoli. Ryu is going to start the season on the DL, with a "nagging left shoulder injury", words you never want to hear about LHP.
Napoli, Crawford, and Tillman would be good pick ups. Drop Rios and Mauer. I assume you have a P position spot in your league. If so, you might consider picking up a stud middle reliever like Wade Davis. Most fantasy players would argue against this strategy saying, "why would you want a middle reliever that won't get you saves". The argue that a middle reliever like a Davis, will have lower your WHIP and ERA, help pad your K total, and poach wins every now and then, and he'll do it several times a week. I hate have an empty spot like the P spot not getting me anything. It's bad enough to have the SP spot empty on most days a week, but you have to live with that. Just some thoughts for you to consider.
Ummm, because he's a mediocre catcher who didn't even break into the top 200 players last year is probably why. I wouldn't trade for him. I can get close to the same value on the waiver wire. Unless you're in a deep 2 catcher league you're probably not going to get a lot of interest in him.
also this year thy added the option and i have done it for both my football and basketball leagues renewing it at the end of the season and you already had it done

Bryan is right, you do have a lot of 1B. Vargas is not going to help your team. What do you like about Semein? You're going to need a replacement for Koji Uehara. I have never been a fan of Garza.
I also joined Fantrax but Fantrax has a limited number of Roto Leagues. Sent an EMail asking if leagues will be added starting at a future date. Fantrax answered a managers query during the live draft. I expect an answer but may occur after Easter.
