First time manager

I have two yahoo teams and I'm not sure how serious this league is because I haven't seen any trades after a few weeks. I had the last pick in the draft and was able to pick up Abreu. If someone could tell me how I should use my waiver rights I would appreciate it.

Bump....I'm not too familiar with relievers so if someone could recommend a trade that would help me add someone instead of Kolb.

Team looks great on offense, although I like Jenkins better at UTIL than Freel. How big is the league, and who is on the WW would help. The pitching is mediocre, but Sheets and Peavy are a good base. Drew, if healthy, looks like a great pick.

Closers will be pretty expensive, so you probably won't be able to get much for a Castilla. Maybe you could talk someone into trading a closer for Freel. Talk up his stolen bases, and his multiposition eligibility, and they might bite. Freel currently doesn't have a position to play. If one or two Reds starters go out because of injury (pretty good odds, actually, considering the experience of recent seasons), Freel will get some playing time. But you've already got very good SB producers, and you'll probably be OK trading Freel away.

Offense looks pretty good although i would actually try and trade Drew while he still has a high price. He didnt get injured last year but looking at his career i wouldnt take my chances this year. As far as Kolb i think you should keep him for now. Hes on a much better team this year which means more save oppurtunites. Im not liking Tsao only because hes on the Rockies.

You may also look to Hawkins for a few saves short term if he is available on WW. He should close until Borowski gets back, about 6 weeks from what I heard. After that, you never know if he is pitching well.

Decent team, but I really don't like using so many bench spots for hitters. I would try and get a couple more pitchers on your team.
