Ive never played fantasy baseball before, only football, so im learning the ins and outs. my team is currently in 6th place, and thats mostly due to mench's hot game last week. i know that i am too stacked at 1st and would like to maybe try to trade for a better 2b or ss.

any input would be great. thanks

You need a lot more power in your lineup, and maybe another star pitcher.

I think you've got a good squad. Guys like Schilling, Hudson, Rolen, and Helton (maybe your first four draft picks?) have all been disappointing. But I think you'll get a better 2nd half from all four (I'm hoping so, because I'm a Cards fan, and I have Schilling on one of my fantasy teams, and Helton on both my teams).

At 2B, the only guys who would be a big upgrade for you woyuld be Soriano, Kent, and B. Roberts. At this point, I doubt that you could trade any of your 1B's straight up for any of those 2B's. You'd probably have to include other players in the deal.

Looks like you're real strong at 3B with Ensberg and Rolen. You might want to use one of those guys in a deal. Good luck to you.

yeah helton, rolen were my top picks. heltons been the biggest letdown, i was thinking of trading him and rolen for some bigger bats maybe. but yah, injuries and poor first halfs have killed me, but i also got a great FA pickup in ensberg
