Honestly I wouldn't touch that offense. You are pretty stacked. You are right you do have reason to worry about wins with Clemens and Oswalt as your studs. If you can get top dollar for Clemens and Barmes then do it - but it would have to be a top 10 pitcher. (Barmes may be worth hanging onto in a keeper league. Let's see how the rookie does.)http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... 636#976636
I do like my offense. I just made a trade offer of Barmes, Brian Giles and Jose Mesa for Manny Ramirez and Mariano Rivera. Mesa had 43 saves last year but he's old, creaky and they have another closer waiting in the wings. Giles is nice but I got him off waivers a few weeks ago. I guess it may be worth considering keeping Barmes - but I just don't know if I can expect him to keep up this pace. I figure if this guys bites I'll deal with it - 2 guys I picked up of FA and my 2nd to last round pick for 2 studs in Ramirez and Rivera. Ramirez isn't posting his usual sick numbers so far this year so I'm hoping that owner is impatient and will pull the trigger.
I'm torn with Clemens. Even if his win total won't be what it should, he still posts an incredible ERA, WHIP and gets a ton of Ks. And there is a chance he could end up in the Bronx by July if the Astros are totally out of the race. If that happens, I epect the wins to go up. But he is old, and even though he is pitching great now - he could be on the DL at the drop of a hat. Might be worth looking into a younger pitcher or packaging him to get an upper tier guy.
