I would sell high on ensberg for a more proven hitter. Otherwise you look great.

I'd try to trade Roberts or Konerko for pitching, especially Konerko, since you can grab a guy like Tony Clark (21 HR) or Nick Swisher (16 HR, but on the DL earlier in the season) to fill in the first base void. You could also probably get Mark Grudzielanek, Rickie Weeks, or Robinson Cano for second base.

Here's my team, comments are welcome:

i agree with this guy... trying to move roberts may be a good idea... he has been consistent but the o's offense is hurting him....

also i would move dempster and vazquez dont like either 1...
