I found myself trying to guess how your draft must have went. Having both ARod and M. Tejada on the same team is almost unheard of. That's a fantastic start. Maybe you made a trade for one of them (?).

Thome was probably next at # 3, he seems to be ready to finally bust loose. M. Young was probably your # 4, and he's been hitting real well lately. But who were you taking with your # 5 - # 10 picks? You should have been able to get OF's like C. Lee or J. Damon or B. Giles or V. Wells or J. Bay, etc. Your OF seems kind of mediocre.

And did you pick up your whole pitching staff off the waiver wire (except Mussina and Percival)? It's not a bad staff, but I bet hardly any of those guys were drafted. You must have missed on a lot of your pitching draft picks.

In one of my leagues, the first 3 pitchers I drafted were Sheets, Ollie Perez, and Mota - and thought I'd done well. Auuuuuughh!!

Best of luck to you. For your sake, I hope Thome gets it going soon.

I'd be:

moving Young, Tejada or Arod for a OF and/or SP. Include any of your young SPs who others might think have potential to get an ace.

staring Polanco at 2B


What were your trades?

I had drafted Hampton, Bedard, Perez, Benitez, so, yeah, I had to hunt for pitchers. I actually picked Percival off the wire too. Traded for Hermanson. Had Guardado, but traded him away in a package deal for ARod, along with Sheffield. What SP should I go for and who do you think I should offer...

you can get alot for Arod and Tejada

I would look for Garland, Willis, or Bueherle, but make sure you are getting offense in return

Lugo Watch: SB - 24 HR - 2

Rehab is for quitters.

A-Rod, Thome, and Sanders.

for

Texiera, Hunter, and Figgins.

I like the deal you made. Thome is awful. I think your team improved a lot, but it's still not very good. 5/10.

Now you're team is starting to look pretty good. You've got yourself a stud 1B, stud SS, darn good OF, and a stud pitcher with a few average closers. I'd look to package Vidro and Young for another upgrade at pitcher yet.
