Your RP is obviously competitive. I'd say even a strong candidate to finish in the top 3 in your league. Gagne's injuries give me some pause, but he should be ready by opening day or not that much later.

Your SP is high risk/high reward. Wood's injuries are an obvious concern, given his track record, but if he's healthy he could be a monster. Ditto for Burnett. Overall though, I think you can use some help at SP. If I were you, I'd try to pick up a solid mid-rotation guy who might not have potential to be a top fantasy stud, but who should give you solid production with minimal injury risk. Unfortunately, there aren't too many guys out there like that.
I am the Master. Don't question the Master. Just do what he says and be proud.

I got lucky in the draft and watched people pass and pass on Carlos Guillen, I ended up taking him, I already had Khalil Greene for my shortstop, unfoturnately I don't think I can get that much for him.

Here are some pitchers that I have been targeting for a possible trade how much do you think they will cost?

Barry Zito
Matt Clement
Javier Vazquez
Kelvim Escobar
Greg Maddux
David Wells
Brad Radke
Mark Buerhle
Freddy Garcia


Anyone else?
