Do you like this team? Also later this week I need to drop someone when BJ Upton comes off the DL. Who is the most expendable? Niese, Thornton or Pestano?

Also Drew Storen is on the DL, should I store him? It would mean i would have to drop one guy once Bj comes back and then an additional guy to make room for Drew.

Another note: I just landed Nelson Cruz and Hector Santiago in exchange for Corey Hart and Jim Johnson. Good deal?

ALthough you have plenty of pitching i would say you don't have enough quality pitching. Try a two for 1 trade when your players come back from the dl (that way you don't have to outright drop a player) If you have to drop a player, i'd drop Pestano. Seems like the shaky start by perez has subsided and he's got a better hold on the closer situation in Cleve.

I like the upgrade in the OF with the cruz trade.

Great Cruz trade. Love that. Thornton is the most expendable.

Thanks for your help on mine!

I agree, I do have issues with the quality of your pitching. Id say Pestano is very expendable, Thornton too. I think Anderson is a waste of a DL space. When Storen comes back I don't think Lidge will be useful, particularly with Clippard and Rodriguez also in that pen.

Honestly, I'd try selling Jeter high, see if someones willing to overpay for his hot start, because there is no way he keeps that up.

And I absolutely love that Cruz deal, great value for you.
