I think your roster is pretty good. I can see why Bud Norris kills you but at the same time helps you out (same with annibal sanchez and zambrano). I would definatley look into trying to upgrade your pitching, you could also probably use another closer as well. You might want to see what you can get for Posey or Napoli..you could get a decent haul for them since catcher is so thin.

Out of Norris/Sanchez/Zambrano probably best to only have 1 maybe two of them on your roster.

Stay with McCarthy, you could also look into trading Youk, Walker probably won't have much value anyway.

Keep an eye out for the young guys who might be comign up soon like Trout/Harper/Bauer(Arizona SP)

good pitching, but should grab middle relievers/potential closers(thornton, bard, casilla, Reed) instead of having doubront, walker, and ike

What are the top FAhitters are available? grab lehair or altuve if they are there

I would try to buy low on upton, bautista, or votto since they are cold.

keep napoli, cabrera, reyes, cargo, and bruce for sure.

Thanks guys! I have been having plenty of thoughts about dropping Zambrano, but he hasnt pitched terrible yet. And Norris im sort of afraid that someone else will snag him up as soon as I let him go. Do either of them really have much trade value or would he just be a throw in on a deal?

I think I will drop Dubront for Milone tonight (even though Dubront had a nice start and a W tonight) and Youk hit a Grand Slam tonight as well so im really hoping he will go on a tear now.

My league is pretty competitive so the top 10 FA hitters right now are:

Travis Hafner, Cle DH
Mark Ellis, LAD 2
Todd Helton, Col 1B
Juan Pierre, Phi OF
Josh Reddick, Oak OF
Carlos Gomez, Mil OF
Gerardo Parra, Ari OF
Vernon Wells, LAA OF
Raul Ibanez, NYY OF
Jamey Carroll, Min 2B, SS

Anyone worth grabbing?
