Even though I got BURNED last year by Wells, I voted against the trade. I don't really care for Andruw, and not just because of the way he spells his name. It might go either way, especially if Thompson has a big year (I'm not sold on that though).

Help me out?

I like your team and your pitching is great. Your weakest spot is definetly steals, but with ops included huge steal guys drop anyways. Not sure how you compare to other teams in steals, i would just try to get enough steals to get 3 or 4 pts overall in the category and that should balance out with your strong ops. On the wells question i sort of like him this year because he could outperform where he is getting drafted, at the same note if you like low risk players wells isnt your guy because hes still getting drafted then his last year numbers.

I would do the trade Wells is a solid player but i think Jones is goign to have a breakout year after willie mays helped out his swing.

Not sure what I would do. But a little note that might help you decide. I remember hearing early in spring on a local media station (I live just outside toronto) that the coaching staff was going to give Wells a little more free reign on the basepaths this season since Delgado isn't batting behind him anymore. Now that they won't be worrying about taking the bat out of Delgado's hands, conceivably, you're not looking at a good 15-20SB's, and maybe even a small jump in double's since the coaches won't hold him as much. If they did before.... :P

If I had Andruw Jones and John Thompson I wouldn't trade you them for Vernon Wells. I like Wells this year but he had a down year and is on an inferior team and last I checked Andruw Jones had 10 HR this spring leading the majors. If you can get Andruw, do it. Too many people expecting too much out of Vernon Wells this year I think. Also, Luis Gonzalez and Brian Giles suck. I'd trade them away if you can find any suckers to take them. Other than that I think your team looks just fine.

brian giles does not suck, just for the record... he's underrated, and he slipped far into the draft
