I might try and package Turnbow or Tavarez with one of your bench players for an upgrade at RP or C. Dont trade Inge, his eligibility is all over the place. I have Varitek and think he is in for a big year. He hit fourth today with Ortiz out and did well. Cabrera is serviceable, but an upgrade could be sought. You also can never have too much SPs.

My suggestion is to trade some of your hitting depth for upgrades at those positions.

I like Inge, but Cabrera is iffy. Your staff is pretty good, and I would definitely switch out Ford and Winn with Berkman and Cameron when they come back. Probly Winn first. I would focus on SS.

That's a pretty nice trade to get mostly WW guys for someone of the ability of Berkman! ;-D

Cameron's not the greatest BA guy in the world, so I might hold off on using him, but I'd surely use Berkman...probably bench Winn because he's mired in the 7 spot in Seattle. :-P

That team is pretty dang good. I don't know much about Cabrera. Have you though of moving Figgins to SS and then inserting someone like Nevin at IF (I assume IF means anyone who plays an IF position)? That might help you power numbers if Cabrera isn't doing it for you. :-?

Get a upgrade in C and/or RP. Your RP is doing well now, but I doubt that either Turnbow or Lyon would end the season this way. Try package them when they start to fade.

B.Roberts got more value now than he deserves, but a lot of managers are still hesitant in trading for him. See if you can get a ridiculously good trade for him, if you can't, stick with him.
