Ill pitching, you could afford to trade one of them away. A weak bench though IMO, that doesn't offer a ton of position flexibility. Your IF is solid, but not spectacular. I'd trade a pitcher for a stud 3B or MI.

I would suggest packing one of your amazing pitching staff to pick up a 3b stud. Beltre is a good sleeper, but he's a big risk as well. If you do it right, you might even be able to pick up a decent pitcher in return if you throw beltre in on the deal, but that's a pretty big if... Good luck either way ;-D

Your only weakness on the pitching side is probably putting your faith in Fuentes. I'd try to package him and Zito for a good reliever.


If you cant get a guy to give you a big bat (like Blalock, or someone with upside in 06) for Beltre/S.Casey or something of that nature, then wait to see who start 06 really hot. After a week or two of a really hot start, move the guy for a long term season upgrade. Youll definitely need more hitting to come in top 3 in a 12 team league.

Any more ideas regarding the above comments? Out of those three options, which looks the best to improve my team?

Thanks and leave a link.

I like the idea of packaging fuentes with Zito or another one of the great starting pitchers to get a stud reliever, Even with giving up one of your SP's you should still win a majority of the pitching categories and adding another solid reliever can only help pick up the saves for you.

Your pitching is really good, starting pitching especially, but I would add 1 more closer to the roster. If there is a good free agent closer left, drop Counsell, and if there is another good one, drop Kearns. You don't need that many bench spots used for hitting, so I would drop Counsell/Kearns anyway and pick up some pitching. Your pitching is really stellar.

I found a guy who owns Rivera, KRod and Ryan. I'm going to package Zito and Fuentes to try and get KRod.

Then I'll think about 3B.

I agree overall team is solid, pitching is above average and your bench could use some upgrades. Overall nice team, especially if Beltre pays off. I too might try and package up Beltre along with Fuentes maybe for an upgrade at 3B!

thanks for the help with mine!

pitching is ridiculously good. You should defenitely trade 1 away to improve at 3b. I really think that Beltre was a 1 hit wonder.

like everyone else i like your pitching. your team is solid. upgrade at 3rd. I think tho right now hold onto Mark Loretta for now. He should have a good year. Nice team ;-D
