I can get Dye off waivers if for some reason Gross falls through, that was a stab in the dark WW pickup

Offense is solid.

SP is very average -- you need another ace (beside Zambrano), and you might need to give up a couple of bats to get it.

RPs are decent, too, including R Wagner.

Ok your offense is nicely-rounded. I think you shouldn't have much to worry about on O. Your pitching OTOH is a bit of a mess. Zambrano is nice so at least you have a solid anchor (in fact I did two drafts today and he is my anchor in BOTH), then a lot is resting on Bonderman and Greinke which COULD pay off but it's so hard to tell and they're not the level of the other young studs, though imo you could do worse for your 3rd SP it's just the idea of one of those guys being my #2 that I don't like (I usually like to have AT WORSE a Smoltz as my #2). Davis/Wilson/Milton at #4 is a little shaky also tho imo Davis is the best of those 3 even tho you have him on the bench. As far as closers well you only have two and this just won't get it done in most leagues. Thankfully they are good (well as long as Ryan keeps the job which hopefully he does since I have him on half my teams as a #3 closer), but you need some loser (or losers) like Batista or Affeldt or someone yet to be determined to keep you winning against anyone with even decent closing.

I'm trying to trade Jones for Matt clement, is that a good trade or should I try to offer more for a better SP

dump Ishii as fast as you can, unless you can handle a 5+ ERA. Not crazy about Wilson either. Definitely need to upgrade the SP. If you are not going to use Burrell, he should bring you something decent in a trade, I would think. Good luck.

I'd use almost your entire bench on SP. Your offense is loaded, but pitching beyond zambrano is shaky. You definitely have a couple of guys that could turn out large, but I'd hedge my bets figuring if you have 10 SP's on the roster at least 2 or 3 will be good enough to fill in behind zambrano.
