Depends on how many teams are in the league, but to me, the pronosis is not, um, promising. And I'll leave it at that. :-°

Well, that makes more sense. It isn't nearly as bad as I thought. :-b I think you could use a few less White Sox, as many of them are overrated. Your corner infielders I find rather iffy. Your top two hitters, Bonds and Sheffield, are far from ideal. Even if Bonds is relatively healthy, he'll be given a lot of time off to rest. Sheffield is good, but at his age, a healthy decline is probably just around the corner, if it isn't already underway. You'll need both of them healthy for your offense to hold up.

I'd see if you can capitalize on the White Sox hype and deal Podsednik, who isn't worth nearly as much in a H2H league with OPS. I'd suggest dealing Dye, too, but you probably won't be able to get anything decent for him. I would also deal Garland. I'd probably deal Buehrle and Marquis, too. It might be a good idea to trade Rivera while his value is this high.

Basically, many of your pitchers' values probably won't get much higher and the fate of your hitting rides on Bonds and Sheffield. The team looks built for 2005. You need to retool for 2006.

1. Pedantic gave you some good advice.
2. Pods SB contribution is vastly over-rated. You would be better off trading him for a player with a better mix of skills, e.g a Crisp or some thing close. Try to get someone who helps in 3 or 4 categories - Pods value is perhaps good right now and you might get more than you should.
3. What you may have to do is scout out the good prospects - those whose arrival time in MLB is late 2006 or 2007. Start trying to acquire some of these players as add-ins to a trade.
4. Waiver-wire scouting will also add a player or two each year. RPs are particularly available this route. 2 good RPs, even without saves, may make more of a contribution than a mediocre SP.

It dosent look near as bad now that you say it is a 20 team league.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

i don't really see that getting koskie and rodney for crede really puts you ahead. I think you should be going the other route and packaging crded plus, say, rivera for a much better 3B option e.g. blalock, hillenbrand, mora etc.

Final question: do you have a minor league roster? Because if you do, this is a good way of building a player pool.

Looks like you started with the White Sox as your base (pick a Major league team league?), if so you have to work with the base you start with.

Make the trade for Koskie / Rodney - at least you end up with some saves out of it.
