C-Joe Mauer
1B-Pujols
2B-Jeff Kent
3B-A. Ramirez
SS-M. Young
OF-Cabrera
OF-Crawford
OF-Jim Edmonds
Util-Eric Chavez
Util-H. Matsui
Bench-Thome
Bench-Furcal

SP-Prior
SP-D-willis
RP-Guardado
RP-Wickman (just dropped Graves for him)
P-Billy Wagner
P-Derek Lowe
P-Bedard
SP-Schmidt
SP-Burnett
SP-Wade Miller
DL-Hampton

It's hard to believe you are in 8th place with that squad. The only possibibilty would be to get another front line SP or to upgrade at 3rd base a little although I believe Chavez will come around as well as ARam. It's still early in the season, but I like your team a lot and wouldn't tweak it too much, unless you get an unbelievable offer.

Thanks for answering mine ;-D

Wickman sucks, I recommend trying to find another closer. Hermanson has the job now, if he is still available on the WW.

I am amazed that you are in 5th, although 8 team leagues usually are loaded, so maybe thats why it seems like your team would be better. For an 8 team league, carrying 2 SS could be detrimental, although I realize both Young and Furcal are good. But maybe package one with one of your SS for an upgrade somewhere else.

Actually, contrary to an earlier post, Wickman has not been half bad lately.

I agree...you could always beef up a little at 3B, although I like a.ram. M.Young is a stud, but is not doing as well as I had hoped. Maybe use Wickman and M.Young and A.Ram. to get a top shelf SS and 3B?

I would package Furacl for an upgrade at OF or SP, perhaps selling high on D. Willis wouldn't be a bad idea.

3B upgrade maybe? Nothing wrong with the bats.
Closer is the only spot I see a weakness. Although both of those guys have been ok this year. I don't expect that the rest of the year.
Good work.

i agree with this, except i'd recommend trading m young instead, as you'll need more than just crawford to contend in SBs. i think furcal's SBs make him more valuable to you than young.
