Im working on aquiring power that all of u have suggested. Though it would be more helpful if u were a little more specific on what places need improvement and who to get perhaps?

Rowand is a quality player, so is Greinke.
But Greinke>Rowand. However, Greinke won't get a lot of wins for you since we here in KC knows the bullpen will blow it. He's going to help you in every other categories. If you are going to get Greinke, consider trade Hampton(hot) for Victor Martinez(cold).
Don't drop Inge though, he's a stopgap in a lot of positions.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

I would trade Rowand for Greinke. Zack's hard luck is only going to last for so long. He is a great pitcher with good Whip, K and ERA. If KC had scored a few runs for him, he could easily be sitting with 3 wins at this point. Plus, Greinke is likely to get better as the season goes on, as are his young teammates.

On the flipside, Rowand has been a huge disappointment. I think you can find good outfielders off waivers, just like you did with Tavares.

I am strongly in favor of the deal.
